The agents continue their tour with the mayor,
today, the power station.
Provided from now on, is this map of Cybercity, the hotel is to the north,
and where we first started this tale.
dark grey; visited.
yellow; current location.
red; future locations.
One interesting feature of Cybercity s power grid is that it sits underground,
my ancestors needed that, not only for natural disasters measure, but,
mostly for attacks on the city.
When we decided on adding solar power panels, I made sure that they also had
condensators and geothermal units under each location, for storage of energy.
The bill must have been astronomical!
I hope you can sell some of it.
Unfortunately, the cities in sector 14 are too far apart for a connection,
and it would need protection.
Next to the power station is the train bridge, it provides protection from the sea
in the bay.
You should build a port, this could add a lot of revenue.
The city limits finishes a little beyond the train tracks,
and the city owes you enough money as it is.
Perhaps in the future then.
Next to the bridge remains a small body of shallow water, and the beach,
it is very popular with the residents and visitors.
What a pure waste of time!
Frankly, we clones will never understand the need for you people to bake in the sun,
while you could earn money with this time!
Don t you ever enjoy free time?
By Meedass that word again!
Time is money Mr Mayor, interest, opportunity, we re conditioned to fall
in love with money, the corporation is our parents, it is our sole point of existence
to earn it as much money as we can!
So you never had girlfriends or will have wives?
There can be business arrangements, if it s profitable...
Many 'needs' have been removed in our conception, it leaves us more focused
on our lifetime goal!
Mmmm, let s get back to the tour shall we?
Meet Mr Lesta, operator of the power station, he also takes care of all that is electrical in the city, including lamp posts.
Hi Mr Mayor!
so it s for you people...
I ll give you the tour!
Why do you call us 'you people'?
You re right, I should nt, but, I have to be polite in front of the Mayor...
We collect energy from 4 solar panels, coupled with capacitators, that augment input
from the windmill and solar panels, below ground, are the condensators wich stores energy.
Although the windmill is quite reliable, it needs maintenance, fortunately,
I m not afraid of heights.
You took your time!
You left without saying a word!
I m the guide of the tour, you re supposed to follow me, let s finish this!
these are the controls of the station, we mainly just need to make sure
it does nt heat up too much.
What if it does?
It s dangerous for you at the station, stay away!!!
You are not a very practical man Mr Lesta!
We owe these men lots of money, tell the others to avoid trouble!
Sorry Mr Mayor, I just hate these guys!
CREATOR S LOG;
sorry for the lateral pictures, I did nt find how to put them vertical on the pages,
it s upright in my pc.
Quoting Builder Allan
thank you very much Allan! the lights on the commercial buildings are my favorite design in the genre to date, it represent the futuristic look I want, you have my blessings to use whatever inspires you in my concepts!
Very cool plant Frank! It needs close study to find all the details and action, like that roof boxing match and the action at the beach. I agree with the other Allan, the colors work very well together and there is a very nice collection of houses and vehicles present. Of the smaller details i really like the street lights on the walls in the second photo, the tanks and last but not least the large gauges on the pipes at the power plant. I'll have to use that idea for my nuclear plant :-D
Quoting matt rowntRee
I felt I had to put the scene in context of the rest of the city, to give a better idea of where it was situated, it also makes the episode feel more progressive. I had no space to make big plants for electricity and water, while living in an apartment, I don t want to expend the layout, I had to be creative, as, I really wanted to set good example with these services,
they are important in my concept. the agents are even worse, the have life and death power over anyone who s not a 'citizen', physicaly, and financially.
Quoting Parrington Levens
I did nt just build this, xd, the houses dates 1 year, while the station must have been through 3-4 models before, making it about 3-4 years old, I kept the props I liked most all throughout, and it adds up to this, the ice cream van is very old, 4 years, but, I refreshed it with the latest ice cream truck from the movie, mostly decals and the big cone, thank you very much Parr!
Quoting Dr. Monster
thank you very much Doc! I m still looking for ways to display a bigger layout of the city, in my small apartment, it s no easy goal, I m trying to keep interest with the agents, the mayor is stuck with them, no matter how profitable the city can be, it will never be enough for them.
Once again I am staggered by the size of your build. Your dedication of time and effort to your MOCs is admiral. I really like the windmill design, and the back story on the agents is much appreciated as well. I really hope the Mayor finds a way to get these guys off of his back.
Quoting El Barto !
thank you very much El Barto! I live in st Jerome, way north of Montreal, it s far from the border, I have never seen a real one in person, but, the documentaries I have seen are indeed impressive,
Quoting Graeme T
thanks Graeme! when I designed the GF, I had hoped some viewers could relate to some frustrating encounters with that type of persons, and feel some relief, the agents have no personal life.
Quoting Kermunklin the Giant Evil House Head
thank you very much Kermunklin! the graffiti is a lego picture frame, adds will be placed there eventually, although I might make my own frames in the future.
Quoting Clayton Marchetti
I had the idea for the map when I figured how confusing it was to know where we are in the city on the tour, lesta ignored the agents, he dropped them like a rock, he knows what they are up to. thank s Clayton!
It's a strange city where people will happily go to the beach even though it has a railway bridge blocking the view of the sea! The scale of this whole city, plus the details that you've included, is very impressive.
I love the map idea. It's amazing to me how much we've seen where we are now and how much is yet to be seen. It really puts into Perspective just how huge Cybercity is. I was a little confused about the part of the tour when the clones were separated from Mr. Lesta when he went up the turbine. Did Mr. Lesta give them the slip? The power plant looked awesome. Awesome!
I love the power station and the wind turbine! I find green industrial plants a fascinating idea, as well as an important! It's the merging of industry with environmental and is one of the branches we should all be heading down, if we are going to save this planet! And yet, I am not frightened of nuclear. The newer plants are much, much safer.
I didn't realize that your 'guys' were clones?! Well, Frank, what can I say... it's another super episode! :)
If i take pics lateral i edit them on my Mac to get them upright. I open every pic in the preview, turn it upright if needed, shrink it down and then i take a screenshot of every picture to get it smaller in size. After that i use the simple uploader for doing them on the page. A bit unusual but it worked pretty good with every pic. Hope this may help you.
