We don’t know who started the double-parking but…

In Lapara, Uncategorized on September 17, 2017 at 9:27 pm

…because of the prim crisis this time  of year with the overlapping seasons, cars have been spotted double parking.

Next posting will be the town updates.  We’ve been experimenting with trying to get video to record in town.

Also, get ready for a big Halloween announcement.  As soon as I get one link fixed.

City Benefactor resolves the Sloth Crisis

In Uncategorized on September 8, 2017 at 2:43 pm

With no one able to resolve the Lapara town crisis, the cities business community stepped up to resolve the episode of the sloth.  After much investigating, and planning, they decided to solve the problem head-on, in a bold manner…a very risky manner.

The owner of Clownski’s Department Store, enlisted the help of the Blue Beetle to truck in a fully-loaded Ice Cream Bar!  Coaxing the sloth over, Mr. Clownski himself, performing his civic duty, and the Blue Beetle satisfied the sloth with a fully loaded Ice Cream Sundae loaded with jimmies.

Fully satiated, the sloth has promised to stop causing problems in town.  The city is expected to be cleaned up soon, and power restored shortly.

Mr. Clownski has shown, that to satisfy all your needs, to always go to Clownski’s Department Store first!  We’ve earned a loyal customer, and we hope you will become loyal too.

Do as the sloth does, and say, “I got it at Clownski’s!”

Lapara updates 8/25

In Uncategorized, Weekend update on August 25, 2017 at 4:55 pm
  1.  Added a bus layover area, bus stop, and painted a line in the street to separate the running lanes.

2. Since the High-Line Park has become permanent and not seasonal, the Lapara State Building sign has been moved to Railroad Avenue from Lapara Blvd. for better visibility.

3) I noticed that on some graphics cards or settings my concrete pavement clashed with, and didn’t look proper with the other concrete blocks I was using.  Therefore, I redid the frontage roads and tunnel entrance on the yet to be named highway (possibly just an extension of Viaduct Blvd.)

Sloth siege continues

In Lapara, Uncategorized on August 24, 2017 at 6:17 pm

Not having luck with the original plan of “waiting for the whole thing to blow over”, the national guard was called upon to take action.

Never having successfully completely an emergency sloth rampage drill, the guard gave it the ole college try, and went on the defensive…

…but was stumped.

(Caption: Commuter on the transit bus captured this terrifying scene during the evening Rush Hour.)

In lieu of a successful resolution, public works have placed generator lights throughout the afflicted area and are hoping that tensions simmer down in the Fall.

New traffic signal timings; Second Lifes most complex signal

In Uncategorized on August 5, 2015 at 1:05 pm

Hard at work programming the major interchange linking Lapara with the streetcar suburb of Astarte.  The light contains 10 circuits all individually programmed giving the most modern and stress free driving arrangements.

This may very well be the most complex signals programmed in SL!
