Re: Winter in August (winter solstice intent)

I like how BV adds TWO shipyards, both in horrible locations. They completely ruined the square that had formed by the docks when they slammed a SY in the middle. And then another?

The one behind the palace isn't so bad, but the one in the middle of the square is pretty obnoxious. It obscures the well!

Gonna do something about it?

I agree. The one behind the Palace isnt a big deal. Its the one in the middle of the square thats pretty terrible.

Things like wells and fountains are rare in the game so its nice when they are in a place where you can see them.
Only reason I can think of building a shoppe in that location would be if building anywhere on grass part of the island would of reduced commodity spams. In which case it probably would of been better to not build the shoppe at all.

Re: Winter in August (winter solstice intent)

I don't understand why people are getting upset. BV had easily twice as many jobbers as TO did. What did you all think was going to happen when you decided to job for them?

What the flying scupper?

I'm too pissed off to post coherently now. If that shipyard is built I will fight against BV for the entirety of its existence.

I wasn't around for the blockade so I didn't job for them, but I certainly wouldn't have expected them to just blatantly regard any respect for aesthetics. I understand that BV wanted a shipyard, but they should've put theirs behind the palace and then just not built the other one.

 
Blockade!!!

Please do. I'm willing to help anyone who blockades Winter this weekend.

Re: Winter in August (winter solstice intent)

Art will be produced. Also, it sounds like a flag has stepped up to blockade.

Furthermore, Redbeard (owner of the shipyard placed behind the palace) is now a member of BV. Fearsumfire, please enlighten us as to why two shipyards for one flag on the same island was necessary?

Oh thats a problem? Of all the things that people do or fail to do for an island the issue is building another shipyard? I think I'll stroll around see what islands have ugly painted palaces with no pretty furni.

Ok, so were pirates and a lame reason is a reason ... i'll be with BV hopefully yell get a good fight :P

BV has turned winter into an ugly* island with no pretty fountain, and a shipyard that looks out of place.

*not really ugly, just saying to prove my point.

I went for a stroll around the island the other day, as many pirates do (stupid shortcuts to buildings who uses them?) n was horrified by the lack of a fountain! then I realised that the previous island owners were not taking care of it and it was filled with stagnant smelly water! BV tore that blight down and now my pirate can breathe the fresh air whenever she walks (yes all you unbelievers we walk around the island already!) around.

Re: Winter in August (winter solstice intent)

I'm sorry, but there's a difference between you making up some story about "stagnant smelly water" and a building being placed in the middle of the town square.

Re: Winter in August (winter solstice intent)

Like it or not, aesthetics are a pretty big deal when it comes to owning islands, and what was done shows a lack of respect for flags that have built the original islands with a plan in hand. Especially for islands in Diamond. Have y'all seen the amount of effort put into cleaning up Cnossos from the disaster it started out as?

Re: Winter in August (winter solstice intent)

So to sum up, island aesthetics are important but island economy not that much. Thats what I gather from an earlier post I made bout islands being not stocked. Blockade a flag that adds a shoppe in the wrong place (did you try talking to the flag about positioning it elsewhere? at least they want to do something with the island other than let it rott) but do not blockade a flag that does nothing for the island, leaving its beauty untouched, since really its the merchands responsibility? As for the stagnant smelly water really make up a story to blockade and its just fine. Don't tell me its the fountain. Blame the developpers that permit building in that place, talk to the flag or just admit its an excuse to blockade (though why youd make up an excuse for a blockade I can't understand, just attack if you feel like it)

Re: Winter in August (winter solstice intent)

 
just admit its an excuse to blockade (though why youd make up an excuse for a blockade I can't understand, just attck if you feel like it)

It's not "an excuse for a blockade". I wasn't even thinking about blockading BV, nor did I have any problems with BV owning an island, until I saw where they stuck the shipyard. To my knowledge, no one else was either, especially not the flag that will be blockading Winter this weekend. No one "made up an excuse", this is actually irritating people.


Since you brought it up, I'll go ahead and say it here, and also try to catch Fearsumfire in game:

Burning Vengance, I, Culliford, respectfully request that you cease construction of the shipyard known as ShipTease, remove the construction site from the island, and refrain from constructing any buildings on Winter Solstice that are aesthetically displeasing. Failure to do so will result in a blockade of Winter Solstice this weekend in effort to prevent the placement of any more shoppes in unpleasant locations. Compensation from myself for sunk costs on the current construction site may be provided at my discretion at the successful removal of the aforementioned construction site.
