Okay Empire Players... You have all been asking LOTS of questions and we are finally ready to start talking! Here is a little bit of information you need to know about the Project on Smp4.First of all, why has it taken so long? This one is easy! We have DOUBLED in size since the original projections....We were originally going to do this on 12 connected residences owned by my family and basically donated to the server because we love you!Then we had supporters and players coming from every direction wanting to be a part and help in any way.We now have 24 Residences that are all together and ready to be used for this amazing building project!This took us into the school year and sports season for Nick and me moving to a new house! Not good timing for a project this epic huh...So... Now we are going to do this ALL SUMMER! I always hear how bored you are and how there is nothing fun to ever do in the Summer so we have saved this just for that reason. We are going to have a building contest! The winners will be given all flags on a residence in the city and you will have the full support of our team to build your winning project on it. We will be there to help you until the last flower and stone is placed and your name will be forever written in the books as the designer and winner of the project on that Res! It will be connected to Youtube videos and stuff also giving you the credit for what you have done! This will be epic to say the least...Here is what the city will be like. There will be an amazing wall of pillars and white all around these reses... this will be a community building project as soon as we get the design dialed in. We had some server issues that cost us a great deal of time and work but now that I have seen the Quartz.... I AM GLAD.... that stuff is EXACTLY what I want the wall to look like.... So we win! I want beautiful gardens and flowing waterfalls... sculpted sidewalks and staircases up to the massive beautiful buildings. I want it to be something that players will walk through time and time again and see something new each time because we will not stop until it is perfect! I want amazing lighting in all areas and I want it to be as beautiful at night as it is in the daylight. So where do you all fit in.... That is easy! Start designing in Creative! Use the list of materials following as your guide. Think Massive and Elegant and White and Bright. See the Big Picture that this will be one of Many Buildings to make up this city. Remember that not all builds can take the whole Residence. There will be a 4x4 wall around it plus room to walk between. Think UP not OUT.... Yes a few buildings may end up a project where you all put your heads TOGETHER and use 4 reses to lay it out complete with gardens and all.... There will be a panel of judges that KNOW what I am looking for... I will have the final say. The more epic you think the better your chances of being in this amazing piece of EMC history!Once it is built I will keep it in tact from now on!!! THIS I can promise! JackBiggin has made us a wonderful forum for this project! As soon as we have 8100 ready for mass intake of materials we will be selecting those who are going to be the leaders in the Material Handling, Mining, and City Layout projects....If you have things you want to contribute see anyone hanging out at 8100... they have flags that can assist you in helping us.THANK YOU ALL for being such an amazing group of players!
