-World of RAAR News!- Aug 09, 2014

Hello Crafty Miners and welcome to the long awaited edition of RAAR News! We hope you all have been enjoying your summer vacations. Ours has been quite busy and full of adventure. Its been awhile since the last news update and we've compiled quite a few new stories and builds to share. So let's get to it!


Imperial City is now connected to the waterways of the world with the completion of the new port facility. Shipping containers have already been arriving containing new technologies and building materials, many of which were featured at Expo 1.8. The Port Davies crane, 'Frasier', has been hard at work 24-7 since the opening of the facility early last month and looks to continue to be busy. A new shipment containing rabbits, banners, red sandstone bricks and the various kinds of wood fences, which were recently unveiled at Expo 1.8, will be arriving shortly.


Tri-C Engineering crews were hard at work in late June in preparation to move the Trans-Hub test station to it's new permanent home across the street. In early July, crews began moving the three story structure and in a record pace time, the building was positioned and secured within a day. 

Trans-Hub officials were pleased with the swiftness of the move and now have their own staff working diligently hard to complete the rail connections and get teleportation systems online. Once these priority steps have been completed, the canal linkup is then expected to take place.



Over the past month, Sam Co. Construction has been hard at work developing one of the few remaining downtown lots in Imperial City. Silverfisch's Department Store has taken shape quickly during that time, with many of the floors now being installed. No set date has been revealed for the grand opening, but residents are pleasantly excited for the completion of this multistory facility. 


After months of being on hold, engineers have finally signed off on the roof design of The Bank of Ender and construction crews were swiftly sent to work. The roof has been on hold since mid-april pending a design flaw that was weeded out during initial fabrication. Sam Co. had to take the roof plans back to the design team for a complete overhaul. 

With the new design approved, work progressed quickly on site with crews having the roof in place within a week. Now that the roof has been put in place, construction has moved to inside the bank.


Imperial City now has a Post Office. 

Early last month, City Council approved plans to build this communication center. The lot located next to Monson Heights, had been vacant for some time, but within a few weeks of approval, Tri-C Engineering had the newly designed post office complete. Inside, residents of Imperial City each have their own personal mailboxes and can send messages to each other quickly and easily.

"This is another step in bringing our residents closer together and allowing them to communicate freely." said Mayor Talamer during the council approval meeting. "We hope it will be well used."


Mayor Talamer has officially moved into the penthouse of Monson Heights. Located in the heart of downtown Imperial City, Monson Heights is a residential tower that has taken shape over the last year. Last week, crews finished up the last touches of the interior design and movers promptly brought in the furniture.

"It'll be nice to wake up with a view of the city." said the Mayor, "I won't have any more excuses for being late to council meetings."

More move-ins are expected in the near future. Little_Owl_Girl has been working with interior designers on her apartment as well.


Construction crews have completed an underground expansion to Monson Heights. An underground horse garage has been installed, allowing apartment owners a spot to park their trusted steeds. Inspired by a SethBling design, the garage can hold up to 11 horses. It's compact design has sparked an interest in using the design in other parking required instances.


Infrastructure within Jursammic Park has continued to be developed by Sam Co. Construction. Sign Totems and waypoint structures have been springing up all over the kingdom. In an interview with Sam Co. owner, SammyMacman he said, "We want to make it easy for tourists to navigate through Jursammic Park on horseback. These upgrades should help do that."

There are still a few areas that require this upgrade, but for the most part Jursammic Park has become accessible to all.


After months of waiting, episode 2 of the Monson Heights Lobby build is now up. Join Talamer as he continues to develop the Monson Heights lobby framed in an Art Deco style. 

Episode 3 is now in the editing process and hopefully can be released soon.
