Yush I am still working on it. No an update won't be out for a while because of schoolwork =P. I built this over break and I probably won't be able to get a ton of work done until another break (luckily summer break's only a few months away).

To Do List:
Finish up Island 1
Island 2
Island 3
Bridges
Interiors


Real Lore
Halfway through writing big lore story behind all my builds. Will probably just post it as a story blog. At the moment though, it's not finished either (again, schoolwork keeping me up until 3am every night [hey it's better than my highschool workload]).


Contest Lore
"[Steve] finds himself lying face down in soft, wet, moss. As he turns his head slightly he becomes nauseous and slides into unconscious again. An unmeasured amount of time passes before he wakes up again, still sour, but strengthened and rested enough. Again he notices faint rhythmic sounds, and he tries to sit upright to find its source. Which is when he sees he finds himself on an island among the clouds."

Not too far off the shore of the island stands a massive white pillar breaking through the tops of the clouds, repeatedly emitting a soft and almost soothing low noise. As Steve turns around to investigate his surroundings, he comes face to face with the wall of what appears to be an enormous structure. Upon further inspection, he comes to realize he's being watched by a crowd of curious individuals, one of which slowly approaches him.

Upon asking the man where they are and what the wall is, Steve learns that he's just outside a magnificent city, the likes of which he had only dreamed of in the past.

"We built this haven to escape the dangers of the ground below," the man explained, "Recently the planet's surface has become horribly unstable for some reason. Luckily, we acted quickly and evaded most harm. These large pillars we've erected around our island create an energy field which counters the effects of gravity and allows our civilization to remain airborne and safe from the perils below!"

Knowning he had no way of leaving the island, Steve asked if it would be possible for him to remain in the city.

"Of course! We're always open to newcomers, though we honestly never expected any. There's plenty of space for you here."
"Welcome to paradise! Welcome to our world of tomorrow!"

I like the futuristic modern style you used. Did you build this all by yourself (I've noticed that many of the other contest finalists were done by teams)? How long did it take?

Either way, it's very impressive

This took about a week and a half to two weeks. Sorta procrastinated the first week of the contest because I couldn't get any good ideas on style. I knew from the beginning I was wanting to build a futuristic city but the style I currently or at that time used for buildings wasn't amazingly reliable (sometimes it looked good and sometimes it looked like crap) plus they took forever to do and were completely spontaneous. Once I got the style down, I basically took off with the construction because designing buildings like these is actually an extremely simple process.

Because I started sorta late, I didn't have time to do things like building interiors or make the monorail in a way that half made sense (right now it's just coming from nowhere and going nowhere. was originally planning to have it go around city but didn't have enough time to calculate the curved tracks. By the time i started on it, there were 2 days left).

Also yes it was a solo build.

This deserves top prize!

Very nice work. The style is reminiscent of Halo's Forerunner style of buildings, with the heavy use of angular geometries. I love how the supports for the train read and the use of stained glass on the borders of the windows. I may try to incorporate this idea in some future buildings (if i can get around to it). I do wish that there was something more inside the buildings, though. I do understand the crunch of time with these contests. Are you working alone, or do you have a build group? Still, very nice work, and best of luck.

Very cool, i look forward to seeing it. Congratulations as well for making it to the finals. And it's nice to see other solo builders. It's hard to compete against teams when it's just one builder. Still, fantastic work.
It's...so beautiful... TuT
Simply... Amazing... I extremely hope you win!!
