South Haven Canal connecting Elysian Lake and Crystal Lake finished! Looking for Heritage status! Q 20
Daryan_AT posted a topic in IndependenceGood evening folks of Indy! -> South Haven Canal connecting Elysian Lake and Crystal Lake finished! Open for all Ships and looking for Heritage status! <- We are on the ingame map around Q 20. Many people of Indy might remember slight attempts to dig a canal between Crystal lake and the Elysian Lake since Indy started, but this important Infrastructure connection was never started for real and never finished, until now! I am proud to announce to you, i have dug and mined for weeks to present you this grand Canal and Tunnel, and hopeing it might even appeal to GM team. I started the digging around when Haven landing was founded as well December 2018, the dirt layer in the area is very high, the rock layer very low. I finished the Canal and Tunnel parts this week mid February. ----------------------------- The beginnings of the south side: The beginnings of the north side Looks from above the hill that was carved into Mid stage Look faceing South East End stage Look on the Hill that contains the tunnel part of the Canal - faceing South The look from the Top of the Hill, faceing to the north - The marble brazier pillar act as lighthouse, guiding ships savely into the Canal! The Tunnel inside - faceing the North Exit The area is mainly Sandstone Veins, so i decided the Thema shall be warm yellowish red colors to reflect the natural occurences of the local veins The South Exit - On the south side i found a few Silver veins, so i decided for Marble white colors, which also makes the normal gloomy cave look much brighter! You can see, the canal is 30 slope deep, allowing every ship type, it also has a sideroad, allowing criss-crossing of carts under the hill and even above the hill, on the sideroads i surface mined into the hillside --------------------- Edit: My South Haven Canal on Q 20 allows every ship type, however if you sail to it from the south coast, you have to sail throught a tunnel at the south-eastern side, which is deeded by Damascussteel, who seems to pause the game right now, since December. This tunnel might not be useable by all ships, i have to look into that. Perhaps @Damascuscan message /pm me on forums or ingame about that area, in a post below i had seen you answered Wurm is waiting for you, come in and join me again with the mineing, we had fun! Until i have more intel, please be careful if you come from the south coast. The sailing from north lake to south lake through Q 20 area, is deep enough for all ships. Edit2: Damascus finished the South Part of the Canal! Hurray! And thank you a lot! The South part is now 2 tiles wide deep channel 25 deep, which allows all ships, even your very biggest Caravel! The whole Elysian-Crystal Route is now sailable and deep enough! -------------------------- I want to Thank Damascussteel, who made this project possible, for he mined the connection into the lake South-east of this canal last year. He also helped a lot with mineing and collapsing the Mine openings. I want to Thank @HughMongus, the leader of the Albia alliance, for putting the canal onto their community map, and Webleywickers for helping in digging, mineing and dredging. I also want to Thank my neighboring deed mayor @Voochand his Villager Thicket supporting the project with lots of delicious meals and pizza and lots of alcohol such as met and moonshine! Very good kitchen! I want to thank various players in the Freemasons alliance for donating parts for many support beams! I want to thank the countless players for selling me crates And now, i declare the South Haven Canal open, you can come and sail through, you can sightsee the area, easy to find around Q 20 on the ingame map, and on the Indy community map organized by Hughmongus. Have fun and have a good wurmy-Day! ----------------------------- Perhaps i upload more screenshots later on. Cheers, your Daryan
