I have been working on this monster highway in Southern Xanadu for over a month now to link to Lormere and I finally finished it last night, it was an insane amount of work but also a lot of fun.
It opens up a whole lot of wilderness and is most likely the longest continuous highway built in one go, it's also for certain the longest highway entirely paved in sandstone bricks and slabs, obviously seeing those are new.
After 1\3 was done, I decided to border the road with moss instead of sand, I just thought it cool cooler for the forest parts.
It's a cool ride, many cool scenic spots, places to hunt and a lot of new places to start new deeds. I plan on building a public Inn behind where the fountain is and also a short secondary road to a nearby desert, for hunting, if someone wants too cook at inn
I decided to build this thing because we almost never get new players where we are here down south, it's pure luck when someone gets lost and ends up here, so trying to bring some life to our area.
The tunnel part which is 207 tiles long is only 1 tile wide at the moment but I'll be completing it in the coming 2 weeks or so, but one can ride through the mountain as is.
I've attached a few screenshots and a map showing where the highway is.
I did a large part of the work on my own but I did get some precious help from a few players and i wish to thank them.
Crysariana for cutting an insane amount of trees, without whom I'd still be at it
Baloo for the help in the tunnel, mining (she hates mining ), strongwall where the tunnel opened up into an old mine and 8 hours of digging in the wilderness.
Korsarul for donating 24 crates of dirt.
Nacciwa for donating 29 crates of dirt.
Snowtech for analyzing and some mining in tunnel.
Popy for imping my tools which took some serious beating.
And all of them who at times were most likely getting a bit fedup of hearing of my crazy highway over a month + period of time.
Hopefully, I didn't forget anyone, let me know if I did.
