  1. Hi, how much for the Dragon Hota please? I'm not rich but if i can afford it, I'll buy it today.
  2. Opening of The Big Girl's Canal

    Hi, I've been playing for almost 17 months, more than half that time was spent building highways, tunnels and bridges to open up the south and link it to starter towns. The newest addition to this big project is the only deep canal in center south Xanadu, which lets you sail through with Caravels, Corbitas and the like. It is named The Big Girl's Canal, in no way to make fun of the more voluptuous ladies out there but because I've always found it funny than men often refers to their boats, cars and other possessions as ''She'', since the canal is meant for the bigger boats, it's become the Big Girl's Canal. When I arrived where I live and have been living since I started playing, Pit Stop Slowmo, some players had already started to dig up a shallow canal but they seemed to have given up once they hit rock and found out how much surface mining would need to be done, so when I was still a noob I had decided that I would finish it up and later figured it should be a deep canal for bigger boats as the only to come here with a Caravel was all the way west through Sweet Island. It is now opened and passable with large boats and I have developed a serious disgust towards dredging hehe. i have added some images that shows it's location as well as other parts of the southern project. While I was working on new bridges across the water here and this canal, Sgtscum, a neighbor worked on a highway of his own to link to my bridges and highway to Lormere. So i've included his work in an image, the tracing of his road is approximate but gives a good idea. Making the highway, linked to mine and then to Lormere a whopping 2442 tiles long. I hope all this will eventually become useful to other players, enjoy and have fun :).

  4. The Screenshots Thread

    A project i had been working on for a while, lots and lots of pottery bricks, I'm now allergic to the damn things hehe. You can ride all the way to the top of the tallest tower, I named it Castle Picasso, it's a building that's part of a long set of pottery bridges i worked on. The crazyness is finally over.
  5. You're talking about having to make deductions to figure it out instead of clear description being provided. As for individual deity colossus page, they provide no information at all about dyes or anything else other than needed material. They should really say that they can't be painted and that's all.
  6. the wiki does not mention that only the normal colossus can be dyed. Has no mention of normal or deity colossus. I don't know where you saw that.
  7. So sEeDliNgS , it is to you that I owe wasting 2k colossus brick, 2k clay and 10 gold sheet and my whole weekend building a colossus because the wiki page for the colossus says it can be painted when it cannot be.(which by the way says it needs 65,000 kg of dye instead of 65k grams or 65 kg), not mentioning the time it took to make the materials. Oh and also having a friend making a lot of red dye for me. Thanx.
  8. I tried painting a colossus yesterday and I do not get the option to do so. is it only the plain male colossus that can be painted or does that go for deity colossus as well? And if it can be done, how is it done? Thanx
  9. I have been trying to put a drake statue together since my archeology skill was high enough to find statue fragments, Last night, I finally had all 133 fragments needed to put one together, a combined stack of 127 fragments and another one of 6 fragments. My main character is called Slowmo and he was out on Independence doing archeology for the last few fragments, Shyruban is my alt and was on my deed on Xanadu and was holding the large 127 fragments stack of drake statue, he does not have much skill at all in restoration. Once Slowmo, on Independence has the 6 fragments needed to complete, he combines them and mails them to Shyruban, who once received selects the combined stack of 127 fragments and tries to combine it to the combines stack of 6 fragments. I'm expecting a nice drake statue to result, instead the 6 combined fragments disapear and the stack of 127 fragments now reads -124\133 ( yes negative 124) instead of the 127\133 it was at previously , so I logged off Shyruban and waited a few minutes, logged back in, in case it was just some passing fluke. But the stack of fragments still shows as being -124\133. I then mail the whole thing to Slowmo on Independence to have him try to add 1 fragment to the stack. After trying this, the stack read -123\133 instead of -124\133, so basically now it would take 256 drake fragments to put a statue together. All this was quite an anti climax you can imagine, hopefully this can be fixed, I want my drake statue, it was a whole lot of work to get there. Thanx
  10. Help on a large project

    Well Sila, maybe start your own post instead of using mine for your own thing. If you don't think that what I'm doing is relevant to you, then your opinion is not needed really, I have done months of work to open up a large area of Xanadu in the last 6 months, can you say the same?

    No clue what you're saying Or what it has to do with my post at all.
  12. Help on a large project

    Hi... I'n Slowmo of south Xanadu, my name on forum is actually the name of an old alt. Many months ago I started a huge project to try to open up the southern part of Xanadu where I live as it was mostly cut off from other parts, especially the starter town of Lormere, so we only very rarely got anyone visiting our area. The highway, including a 207 x 2 tunnel , around 250 tiles of bridge and a large fully equipped inn along the way took me 4 months to complete, I did get some much appreciated help along the way. Long before that I built a series of 5 bridges across the water where I live to link our area with the south shore, but I still was much of a noobie and knew very little, so all those bridges are only 1 tile wide, I'm planing on redoing it all, the 1st bridge is finished, thanx to generous donation of 5k clay from Pingpong. 4 bridges to go, I have decided to make it a bit special so building all of it out of pottery bricks, ouch, I underestimated greatly how much work this would be :). So I'm here to ask for either clay, clay bricks. mortar, slate shards or bricks to help me some, Pingpong for his donation willl have a bridge section dedicated to him, each island where bridges land will also have some building made of slate bricks, to add a bit of contrast, those building can also be dedicated to those who donate materials. I haven't fully decided yet but I may make some change and have only 4 bridges instead of the original 5.. One bridge will have multiple names on it for those who wish to make smaller donations So there is either 2 or 3 bridges remaining to get your name on as sole donator. I've also finished opening up a canal that someone started before I started playing but it never was finished, whoever worked on it I think stopped once they hit rock, I've decided to work on that, which included a lot of surface mining, it is now opened, but I still have some parts to dredge to make it accessible to larger boats like Corbita and Caravel. I'm also planing a new highway heading north on the south shore, still scouting to decide how I'll go about this. So if you're interested in helping, it'll be much appreciated. I have attached a few images of the old bridges, the one new bridge that's completed, the tracing of highway to lormere. Here's the materials that are needed: Approximately 35k clay and\or mortar. Pottery bricks. Slate bricks and\or slate shards. I thank in advance those willing to help . Thank you, thank you, thank you
