    One month update: so far I've gotten almost nothing done. Woot woot. Starting a new super secret project with a couple other players so I'm gonna start working straight on the Shizzle Center now instead of waiting until after the mall and the towers are finished. Probably gonna take a while with Finals and Ap tests coming up, gotta put priority with school.

    Finals all next week so I'm doing my two month update now. Decided to just show some pictures and maybe get some advertising out now if I can rather than do a bunch of writing.
    [​IMG]
    Two out of 6 eventual Prebuilts done and ready to be sold. Pm me if you'd be looking to buy btw.

    [​IMG]
    The Shizzle Center, a multi-arena pvp center. About half done, still need to add the roof decorations and the other arena to it plus lift signs, trade centers and pvp apps obvi.

    [​IMG]
    La Ciudad Mall. Outside's done, interior will take forever with all the shops, the decorations, and the elevated train station (hence the giant hole above the flag on the far side).

    [​IMG]
    Sears Tower, Mall, and Chrysler Building. Chrysler Building just needs lift signs for the elevator and it'll be 100% done, Sears still needs all the flooring and lighting done, the lobby foyer decorated and the elevator completed before it'll be done.

    [​IMG]
    The Chrysler Building and the Transamerica Building (aka The Big Gray Block of Failure). Trans still needs flooring, lighting and elevators. Probs end up selling the whole tower to Restes and let him do whatever he wants with it.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Still haven't sold cabin houses or the Neptune House surprise surprise.

    [​IMG]
    Still have all these chests filled with healing potions from when Partyman and I tried to get-rich-quick following the glistering melon crafting recipe change in the 1.6.1 update. Haven't sold a single potion #worstsalesmanever.

    I seriously have the worst luck when it comes to picking comayors and literally cannot find a comayor for any of my towns that will stick around. They're active for a while but as soon as I make them comayor to make my life easier, they go MIA. Glad to know I have plenty of help out there.
    [​IMG]
    Looking pretty good

    I still don't have a melon sword, I'm still a two-town president, and other than the Shizzle Center, have done basically nothing all this past month. With finals in my face and now working three jobs almost 24/7, I'll probably do even less this next upcoming month. Responsibility's a b----, kids. Don't grow up.

    I'll buy your healing pots at $2/pot. A glistering melong before the update only cost $1.35 to make, and that made 3 potions. I would be willing to buy all your pots at that price. Start a conversation with me if you want to talk about it. :)

    About two weeks late on the update. Sorry.

    June was probably the most productive month, surprising to me as I didn't think that I'd be able to get on a lot due to my work, however I work in the late afternoons and evenings, allowing me ample time to access the server in the mornings. In this time, I was able to complete the Shizzle Center, put elevators in the Chrysler Building and finish the flooring and lighting in the Sears Tower. As many of you know, I've also gone ahead and began work on the EcoCity Hockey League, which has proven to be more successful than I imagined. I'm still planning two more major business ventures, so be ready for those, they're gonna be pretty sweet.
    I've also come across some money from selling donations features and now have enough money to buy the land I need for my third town which will complete my 400x400. Expect that sometime soon.

    These aside, however, I still haven't done anything with the Transamerica Building ("the Big Gray Block of Failure), the mall is still a big empty building, there are still just the two prebuilts in Bel-Aire, and there are still no statues put up yet as I planned. The La Ciudad Festivities Center, which I had planned to use as an information center/lightrail station during pvp tournaments and the like, has completely been scrapped and I'm now going to build a fancy casino on the plot instead. I also will not be getting a melon sword now any time soon, or ever, due to the recent ridiculous rises in market prices, so that's wonderful.

    That's all for now, see you all next month

    July Update:
    The biggest thing I've done this month was purchase my new town of Aspen, thus completing the 400x400 region that I had planned. I had reached a potential 950k prior to purchasing the town, the most money I'd ever had, with 600k in my balance and 350k coming my way sometime this week in the form of a donation feature purchase. Now I only have around 450k but I'll have over 800k once the deal goes through.

    The ECHL Summer Champions Tournament is under way now (http://www.ecocitycraft.com/forum/threads/echl-summer-champions-tournament.102847/). I'm super happy with the way everything's turned out, I'm even surprised that it's been as successful as it's been.

    Building-wise, I didn't get too much done this month as I've been focusing on developing a few business ventures. I've started up another venture called Shizzle Enterprises which is essentially just a affiliation organization that links each of my many businesses and start-ups and keeps things organized. I was, however, able to get enough motivation to start working on the interior of the La Ciudad Mall, so now it's just a big empty building but with a neat floor design. The interior of the Sears Tower is also complete and I'm working on putting in an elevator currently (none of my ext. creations people are ever online).

    I also bought the water donation feature for myself so if anyone needs water placements, I do them for a hefty $0.00/placement. Hmu if you think you can afford it.

    Lastly, I've decided to set some forum goals for myself. They're fairly simple, I'd like to reach 2000 posts, 1000 ratings, and reach the top ten in most ratings (in 12th right now)

    August Update:
    So today was the first day of school. Gross. Not sure which monkey at the school district office decided to start the year on a Friday but whatevs

    So I kind of want to rant a little here. I was gonna buy a resident, mayor for their town, and I paid the guy 60k just for him to spend it on lotto. That said, I apologize if I have a sever lack of trust for players going forward. It just seems like a lot of the players that I grew up with almost two years ago have all been banned or AWOL, only to be replaced by dumb little kids. It's annoying to deal with, and so I don't see myself sticking around for much longer. However, I still have goals that need to be fulfilled and I want to see those happen before I inevitably leave.

    On the positive-ish note, I've gotten quite a bit done lately on my towns. In La_Ciudad, I've decided to tear down the big grey block of failure and replace it with a cool curved modern tower which is still under construction.
    [​IMG]
    I've also finished building the La Ciudad Casino, which acts as my first original modern-style creation
    [​IMG]
    I've also finished building the double arenas across from the Shizzle Center. The red one is for boxing and the green is going to be for spleef. I intend on hosting several tournaments every once in a while. As you can also see, I've started taking out the road and am starting to replace it with a different, less dumb design.
    [​IMG]
    Also, to sprucen things up a little bit, I've planted numbers of trees around the town. I really like the tall jungle trees because they're tall and exotic. I really like how west coast cities like LA and Vegas incorporate those huge palm trees, so I guess I was kind of going for something like that.
    [​IMG]

    Aspen is way on the backburner, it's not even half way covered with dirt yet and it's been like a month.
    Forum Goals-wise, as some of you know, I've reached 1000 ratings which is pretty awesome. I'm also now in 10th place, just a couple dozen ratings behind RyanJF1, so I'm climbing pretty steadily. My goal for posts back when I hit 1000 was to hit 1500 by August, and I'm right now at 1800 something, 300 ahead of schedule.

    Finally, businesses. Chargers' team won the ECHL Championship, not giving up a single goal all season which was annoying. Shizzle Enterprises hasn't really grown yet, though I plan on adding another couple businesses to it soon.

    And to end, I'm going to finally come out with the big business venture I've been kind of keeping secret all this time. I've been in talks with Lapkingkn and Jrg5978, and we've decided to franchise Lapking's Casinos across ECC by buying plots to build new casinos and buying out existing casinos. We currently have 5 locations at various places across the server, including the one in my town that I just finished, effectively multiplying our overall profits several times. I'm currently sitting as the head of Marketing and Construction as well as the Chief of Operations for all franchised locations, putting me third in line to a now ~$12 million enterprise. So that's cool.

    Anywhales, that's all I feel like typing out now. Nobody's probably going to read this, I'm tired, and to top it off I have a date tomorrow with the future Mrs. Shizzle which is awesome (we're seeing The Hundred-Foot Journey), so I suppose that all the crap that's been going on kind of has a bright side to it that I can look to.

    See you guys next month.

    None of my pvp arenas are pvp enabled yet. I'm hoping to run some tournaments soon in conjunction with the city casino which also needs a lot of work done to it.
