  1. Very Nice Microbuild @Drunknok, It's very clean and Corrish. It also reflects the examples you gave as well very nicely.
  2. Excellent Builds @Maxim I and @Legostone. You too continue to get great ships out to events, as well as on the Brick Seas. Keep up the Excellent Work, both of you!
  3. Excellent Little build @Drunknok, very good keeping to the style of Quinnsville, while doing your own style as well. I love the use of the Leaves for the Dragon's Ears as well.
  4. Little late for me to comment, but excellent Dock Bart, and a great story with it.
  5. Hi everyone, I did a map drawing out all the trade routes people used. Trade Map by North White, on Flickr Red is Corrington Green is Eslandola Blue is Oleon Gray is Sea Rats Yellow is Mardier Black is other This shows a basic idea of how ships move in BoBS. The map does not show which direction the ships were going, however, and this is a rough estimate. For example, a ship traveling between Weelond and Nova Terrelli could pass through zone 10 or 12. So, the trade routes could be comepletely different. Also, I only recorded ships that had their location registered in two KPAs, so the FTA fleet is not in this analysis. Additionally, if a ship left from a port and returned to it, I have no idea where it went, so it was not added to the map. Let me know what you guys think, and I hope this helps people out.
  6. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Medium Commercial On the Royal Dock, several elite guards and other WTC personnel awaited the return of Agnes's Private Yacht A gallant return by North White, on Flickr Once in, the Guards lined up to greet the Countess and her companions A gallant return by North White, on Flickr "Bah, some ball. I can't believe Cooke put guards around the punch bowl!" Said Agnes A gallant return by North White, on Flickr "At least you weren't kicked out after, you know." Said Mordo A gallant return by North White, on Flickr "Operator! We have a passenger! Deal with it! But first, what's the news?" Said Agnes Grumpily A gallant return by North White, on Flickr "Come into my office, you will be most pleased." Said the Operator. A gallant return by North White, on Flickr "While you were gone, Mesabi Landing has become a large city, and the largest in Corrington." Said the Operator with a smile. "Excellent..." Said Agnes. "Now pass the Vodka. My hangover is coming back." FIN Thanks for viewing my build! With this Mesabi Landing becomes a large city, and the largest in Corrington. This also means my mayor pay goes up. Anyways, thank you to everyone who has built in Mesabi Landing, but especially @Drunknok, my partner in crime. Stay tuned, we still have more work to do...
  7. Nice Build Kallas, can't wait to see where your story goes.
  8. Excellent Build Drunknok, you're an excellent builder. I especially like the crane, and the in progress boats look excellent as well. You really have impressed me with your work for Corrington.

    Funny story Pombe, as usual, and nice ship as well. You certainly are great at the microbuild ships. I see you're rremoving all chance of losing this one in the next MCRA though!
  10. Nice Pictures Kai, but I look forward to when you're back with real bricks. Your creations are always excellent.
  11. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Medium Artisan The people of Mesabi Landing, (Melanders?) were an industrious people. Fishy smell by North White, on Flickr Today, a fishing crew rowed it's way around the bay, nets in hand. Fishy smell by North White, on Flickr After catching an absurd amount of fish an oysters (but not crabs), they rowed their way back to headquarters. Fishy smell by North White, on Flickr There, they disembarked, hauling in their fresh catch. Fishy smell by North White, on Flickr Everything was brought inside the off shore building, (because of the smell of Fish) for processing Fishy smell by North White, on Flickr There, the fish were to be processed and put in barrels from the barrel factory to be used for a variety of purposes. Fishy smell by North White, on Flickr FIN Thanks for viewing my build, I hope you like this one, I had fun building it. I also tried to capture the essence of Mesabi Landing with the scenery. C&C appreciated!
  12. Well, welcome @Agent Kallus! Glad to have another Corrie on board.

    @Roadmonkeytj Drunknok will be searching another island, which will become clear when he posts his build.

    Chapter 3: Black Sand Beach Location: Isle 16 All 4 of the Team rowed slowly to the Island. Black sand beach by North White, on Flickr "Black Sand beaches. Copper. Tasty fruits. This has to be the island!" Said Captain Angles. "Yo! This island is too Tony's liking. All the skeletons on the shore look inviting." Said Tony Black sand beach by North White, on Flickr On the shore, a pile of skeletons missing their heads lay, having fallen from a tree. Black sand beach by North White, on Flickr "Hard to get ahead in these trying times." Said Tony with a grin. "Well, that's one of the Red Rascal's uniforms... They must have been here. We have an isle to search boys!" Said Captain Angles. To Be Continued...
  15. @Bregir Look man, it took leadership at least 2 months to judge a challenge. During that time there was no communication about why it took 2 months. There was no timeline put in place. Now, as a part of playing BoBS, I have never been told that there must be a timeline or timely judging, I admit that. However, it should be reasonably expected that leadership will do their part to quickly and timely work the game. I take it as being a moderator on a game server. You put in your time to make sure things run smoothly. That's the deal, leadership makes thing run smoothly, so that the game is worth playing. Now, I will take my usual time to call out my good friend @Drunknok for complaining. However, Can you list them? A month ago Drunknok asked in the chat how judging was going and he got no response. How do you think that made Him feel? How should he act if no one is responding? Inaction and neglect are in the same boat as an snarky comment. No, Bregir, and I mean this as nicely and civilly as possible. You have overreacted here. Drunknok has gotten little communication about the challenge, and thusly and rightfully complained about it. It takes 10 seconds to write and post "We're taking longer than expected for judging, sorry." Well it is not 100% needed, without it it can easily appear that leadership is ineffective, and absent. If Leadership is ineffective and Absent, it is right to complain about them. Therefore it is the job of leadership to at the very least to not appear ineffective and/or absent. Additionally, Leadership cannot and should not use the excuse that it is only a hobby. If you do not have time or motivation to lead the game, you should not remain a leader. This is why @Scarst is not on the leadership team any more. If you cannot do your job, the polite thing to do, is to let someone else do it. Plenty of BoBS leaders have taken this option. Just because this is a game, does not give you or anyone else to do a poor job. And I must say that trading barbs with Drunknok over how long you took to judge a challenge is not only poor form, but also poor leadership. You are here to keep things running smoothly. And this is only serves to create tension among BoBS members. The Problem is, we're not acting entitled. We're asking for the game to run smoothly. That is all we want. That is the purpose of having GMs. You don't have to do a good job, but it should be expected, that's why you're a leader. If you do a bad job, in any other scenario, you would be removed. Simply because this is a hobby should not change that. I will mention here, that is not friendly, polite or constructive to ignore simple questions about BoBS, to respond with a bit of negativity with ore negativity, or to threaten to remove someone from a game because they irked you. "first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye." Matthew 7:8. So, I will say the following. Maybe Drunknok had a bad day. Maybe you did. But that's no excuse for you to go off on Drunknok about how he's disrespectful. If Drunknok throws a barb, maybe instead of acting as if he's a bad player, maybe consider that no one is perfect, and we all have failings. Drunknok may have lost his patience and responded by sarcastically saying that complaining is all that works. Is that really terrible? It's not the nicest thing to say, but we ALL have to acknowledge our wrongs, lest we live in a world where everyone thinks they're perfect and does crappy things.
