- SPOTLIGHT - Tri-C Engineering Office

Welcome back all you Crafty Miners to the World of RAAR. This week we Spotlight the newly constructed Tri-C Engineering office located on the third and forth floors of the magnificent Tri-C Tower. So let's get to it.

Tri-C Engineering was originally founded by Talamer after envisioning a city located around the first settlement in the RAAR world. Since that time, Tri-C Engineering has gone on to design and build structural feats within Imperial City such as the Grand Central Train Station, Imperial Plaza, City Hall and the location of its new office, Tri-C Tower.

Originally the office was located on the top three floors of Imperial Plaza, however space limitations made it necessary for a larger location. After much design, Tri-C Tower was erected next door to Imperial Plaza and before long the new office was being laid out.

As soon as the elevator doors open, clients and employees are greeted with the reception and waiting area. After passing through the reception area, there is a lunch room and break area for employees to socialize and collaborate with each other. Stairs located next to the lunch room lead to the company administration where Mayor Talamer still maintains an office. The rest of floor three is reserved for the drafting and design group which head up the various construction and engineering projects. The copy room is located adjacent to the design area and provides employees with quick access to company resources and scanners.

Lunch Room

With the final touches being put in place, Tri-C Engineering plans to move its employees next Monday morning, just in time to continue the hectic workload that is still ahead of them.

-SPOTLIGHT- Grimshire Harbor

Hello Crafty Miners! Welcome to another edition of Spotlight. This week we travel back into the land of Jursammic Park to explore the freshly built Grimshire Harbor. So, let's get to it.

With the completion of Port Davies in Imperial City, the town of Grimshire also decided a harbor was needed in order to access the world trade. Sam Co. architects took to the job in early spring designing a dock, crane and warehouse that would both suit the needs of the citizens and match the unique design style of the town.

Once the design was complete, Sam Co. Construction crews prepared the site and began to construct the new port. Once the crane and warehouse were complete, spruce piles were driven into the sea bed to support the dock platform.

Not long after the completion of the dock, ships began to pour into the new access point allowing Grimshire to begin to import and export their wares.

The tall ship seen docked below was specially designed by Sam Co. owner, SammyMacman. It was launched from Macwood in late spring and has already done several transport runs between the two cities. More ships are expected to be commissioned before too long. Rumor has it a shipyard is in the initial planning stages in Imperial City.

Thanks for your likes and comments. Please be sure to join the World of RAAR community page so you can receive future updates a day early, see sneak peeks of current builds, and participate in suggesting build ideas. Have a great week and until we meet again, Happy Crafting!

-CONNECTIONS- East Entrance Horse Stables

Hello Crafty Miners and welcome back to the World of RAAR. In this month's Connections post we take a look at the Imperial City East Entrance Horse Stable. This stable actually has quite a bit of history surrounding it so let's take a look.

Originally where now stands a castle-like stable there was once a small mountain. Like much of the Imperial City area, mountains were once the dominant feature. The tunnel through the current stable is the same tunnel that was carved through the rocky mountain surface by Talamer during the Age of Survival, which allowed him to access Buffalo Bay where he was building a road system to connect Imperial City to Roundhead. 

As the Age of Survival closed and the Age of Creative began, Imperial City took on a new shape where the majority of the mountains were carved away into buildings. The small mountain which was to become the stables was first shaped into a castle fortress, then as horses were discovered in the world, the fortress was hollowed out and converted into stables. Redstone gates were also added into the design to allow patrons easy access to their steeds.

Since its completion, Imperial City has tripled in size leaving the East Entrance Horse Stable well used and overcrowded. This has prompted discussion at last month's Imperial City Council meeting on the topic of revamping the outdated stable. Though all of the Councillors agree that the stable overcrowding needs to be addressed, there is a split on whether the course of action should be renovation or  rebuild. Those proposing the rebuild say that the space could be better used and that it could be combined with the issue of the Imperial City Library Project, which also faces demolition due to its inefficient design. For now council has opened the matter up to the public to weigh in and are also awaiting a feasibility study to be completed. 

Thank you for liking and commenting on this post. Please feel free to express your thoughts on the fate of the East Entrance Horse Stable. Should it be renovated or torn down and rebuilt? Let us know and until we meet again, Happy Crafting!
