  1. Cateyeing the East Plains Highway?

    Schiann, let's get some facts straight! I did NOT remove your rice fields!!! During one of your regular absences (which can last from 1 to several months at a time or longer) back 2015-16.... .....some kids now departed from Wurm, who lived somewhere north of the north side of the harbour area swallowed up your never used rice fields when they made the harbour bigger on the north side. Oh, that fenced Love path tile, with its nice fences and gate... Because you are AFK regularly for so long, on one of your periodic absences, it decayed away and the walls fell down all on its own. ... and all of that stuff was "off deed" and it is Hard to talk to a neighbour who goes AFK from 1 to several months or longer regularly. http://prntscr.com/l8b1ms Note date/time stamp at top left of image. As you can see in the above picture, there is a harbour at the bottom right of the bridge under construction (former site of Schiann's rice fields) and they are obviously long gone. Also Note the lack of GM Permission signs in the above image. When you started your bridge project, you did so WithOut asking GM permission 1st to modify an existing highway and you did NOT put in a bypass to let folks continue to use the highway whilst you built your bridge. So trying to be a good neighour.... I went and got a 1000 plus dirt and built two ramps and paved them to keep that highway passable. This I did to keep you out of trouble with the GM's. I also explained to you why I made the ramps and showed you a link the then current highway rules. After I built those ramps that kept you out of trouble, you expanded your deed across the East Crystal Highway to protect the bridge from decay when it was done. Should I also mention the fact that your bridge would cut off easy north side access to my deed once the temporary ramps were removed? Without those ramps, access to my deed from the north side now meant going the long way along the harbour front road, which you told me to do, go the long way. So When I asked you Schiann, about putting Cats Eyes across that bridge, so I could join the north side Cats Eyes from FM up with the Cats Eyes Highway on the south side of your deed, (which would connect my deed on the South West side of your's), to the FM Cats Eye's Network, you refused. You have since planted Oak trees on those ramps, making them impassable on foot, horse or horses and cart. I do not recall you mentioning to me that you wanted me to do a whole bunch of terraforming to undo something I did NOT do originally. That is a totally unrealistic, demanding I fix something that someone else did. Because you are often AFK for 1 to several months plus at a time, when new people come into the area and do stuff because they can't contact you to share their plans with you and ask your input, why are they "causing you problems" when it is you who are AFK for 1 to several months? I waited thru your usual long absences patiently from July to December of 2017. I even tried to make contact via your ally, Mayor of The Hellforge (who told me he was your son), who played more regularly then you did, to get the Cats Eyes placed across that bridge. He told me politely, sorry you gotta talk to Mum. When ever you came on line and decided to play Wurm, IF I happened to be in the area, I would politely try to persuade you to please put Cats Eyes across that bridge, to join up with the Cats Eyes Highway on the south side, so I could link in my deed. At that time I was aware that Lord Louis did NOT want CE's on the East Plains Hwy, because he wanted to realign it. I am still honouring that request and the CE's do not go beyond the top of the hill, but turn west down to my deed. After 5 months of waiting from summer time to Christmas, I gave up!!! http://prntscr.com/l8b00o (note date/time stamp at the top left corner). I modified the shore line harbour road and made it a two wide and put in Cats Eye Highway around the edge of the harbour, being very careful to ensure the shallow draft canal to your underground harbour was maintained and to not disturb the harbour or its usefulness. If folks are doing stuff because you are regularly AFK for long periods, it is not their fault if they can't get a hold of you. That is why the harbour side CE Hwy came about. ... and it is actually a benefit wurmian's who use the harbour now, because I planted Blessed 50 QL street lamps along the harbour CE Hwy. That harbour now has decay free night lighting, making it easy for all to use at night. In the future, please do not accuss me of things I did not do. Sincerely! Hughmongus
  2. Cateyeing the East Plains Highway?

    Thank you Damascus. I put in the Cats Eyes from the south side of the Devil's Horn mountain tunnel down to the Meridian Highway. I also helped Payu with some of the Cat's Eyes down at the south west end of the Meridian Hwy near Elysian Bay. As he stated above LordLouis has asked us to hold off with Cats Eyes on the East Plains Hwy as he is working on altering its alignment. He has also stated he does not want Cats Eyes near House of Pain at this time, again he has plans for the area around his deed. So if the Devil's Horn tunnels entrances (north and south) are made two or three wide, then CE's can put put thru it to the north side exit, ready to link in, when the East Plains Hwy realignment is done. The tunnel connection to the Crystal Bay Canal CE network I was referring to is the nearly completely made two wide (or "twinned") Silver Mountain Hwy, to join up the Crystal Canal area CE network to the FM network at Albia Crystal, via the eastern shore of Crystal Lake. So the only part that needs work is tunnel entrances on both the Silver Mountain tunnel and the Devil's Horn tunnel, which just needs a Mag priest to pop the reinforcing at both ends, one side of the road only (plus some mining to make it wider). Food for thought, Cheers! Hughmongus

  4. Cateyeing the East Plains Highway?

    After a single wide with sand either side became no longer a legal highway back in June of 2017, a team of folks, including Finndar, ChampaignDragon and myself turned the highway into a two wide paved from Psycodad's on the Grand Steppe to the Junction with the East Plains Hwy. Schiann's contribution of the black slate bridge really added a touch of class. Per discussions with Lord Louise who wants to realign the East Plains Hwy, we agreed to NOT run CE's out along that road. 4-5 months ago I made Schiann a supply of Cats Eyes and a Waystone for her to run CE's across that bridge so that the Cats Eyes Hwy on the south side of her deed that runs down the coast to the West End of the Orient Express Cave Canal can be connected to the CE's on the East Crystal Highway that connects all the way thru FM and right up into the NW corner of Indy on Samling Fjord. I am trying to help the folks with the Crystal Canal CE network, who want to come north thru Silver Mountain Highway and link into the rest of Indy via the CE network on the south side of Albia Crystal. There is already a section CE's on the North Side of the Silver Mtn Hwy Tunnel. I've been in talks with Lord Louise to figure out how to get join those two networks up but the deed at the end of the Orient Express is owned by an afk player. So the 60 Cats Eyes Schiann needs to join the two net work either side of her deed have been sitting at Albia Crystal, just awaiting her decision allow CE's across her bridge. Cheers! Hughmongu

  11. Fixing the bridge at BDI

    Gud'morning again folks, Monday, Sept 110, 2018 @ 17:02 GMT ... and a survey crew has completed the tile count for the Temp Bridge on the west side of BDI. That data has been input in master files and it will appear on the next update of the Albia Roads Map of Indy. A word of Caution, as the Temp Bridge is a just above sea level bridge, boats and ships can only pass thru in the very center of each span of the Temp Bridge. Warmest regards!

  12. Fixing the bridge at BDI

    Gud'morning folks, Monday, Sept 9th, 2018 @ 12:26 GMT That is very impressive. As I have told Davide and a few others, I am sitting on 5k of dirt to replace the eastern building with an abutment of proper height when the eastern section finally goes down. We will try to get up there and tile count this temporary link soon, and get it onto the update of Albia Roads Map of Indy. Kindest regards, Hughmongus Co-Administrator - The Albia Roads Map of Indy
  13. Large Ship Navigation Warning

    RL has kept me busy, so catching up on a back log of forum stuff. Yes, Skyefox is correct. It was the owner of the large island in the NE Inner Sea (as pointed out in the above message's reference) who made that long, barely submerged causeway south to Pickle Island. No work has been done towards completing that that bridge / causeway project in over a year, so I would hazard a guess that it is dead. Food for thought.
