Post by Moon Adamant »

[11:31] Moon Adamant: let's start then
[11:31] Moon Adamant: hmmm, remember the meeting is transcripted, please
[11:31] Moon Adamant: Alba it is :)
[11:31] Delia Lake: it's a different kind of sim than the others in the CDS
[11:31] Sudane Erato: homestead
[11:31] Rose Springvale: no
[11:31] Sudane Erato: oh?
[11:31] Rose Springvale: Albaycin was upgraded
[11:31] Delia Lake: and at some time I'd like to bring both of you, Moon and Sudane, over to see it
[11:31] Sudane Erato: ahh...
[11:32] Delia Lake: yes
[11:32] Moon Adamant: ah ok
[11:32] Moon Adamant: we can arrange that
[11:32] Rose Springvale: we can go today :) field trip!
[11:32] Sudane Erato: sure!
[11:32] Moon Adamant: mind you, i have been there before the merger
[11:32] Rose Springvale: not where she is now
[11:32] Rose Springvale: she has something new
[11:32] Delia Lake: and Sudane I did as you suggested and played around with the textures so I think I have something that works
[11:32] Delia Lake: Albaycin is set up as a nature preserve.
[11:33] Moon Adamant: yes, i know
[11:33] Sudane Erato: great!
[11:33] Delia Lake: so ther are marine animals and plants
[11:33] Delia Lake: there are land animals and plants in what would be habitats similar to the north coast of the iberian penninsula
[11:33] Delia Lake: since it is attached to Al Andalus
[11:33] Moon Adamant: ok
[11:34] Rose Springvale: (been there moon? )
[11:34] Moon Adamant: i don't know the Biscay Coast, btw
[11:34] Moon Adamant: never
[11:34] Delia Lake: that's the area,yes
[11:34] Moon Adamant: furthest north i have been was Santiago de Compostela
[11:34] Rose Springvale: next time i come to spain, i'm taking you on a rl fieldtrip!
[11:34] Moon Adamant: in Galician country
[11:35] Delia Lake: so we want to keep that as public space and a bit wild
[11:35] Delia Lake: before the merger and when we talked about upgrading the sim
[11:35] Delia Lake: we decided that we would also want some residence areas, but to put them on the sim ground level would spoil the integrity
[11:36] Moon Adamant: ok...
[11:37] Delia Lake: so what we have done is build Albaycin Highlands in the sky. not like skyboxes, but like a small village-y/neighborhood setting in landscaped foothills at about 650-700m, terraced
[11:37] Moon Adamant: ok
[11:37] Sudane Erato: oh my!
[11:37] Moon Adamant: good idea
[11:37] Rose Springvale: its really pretty too
[11:37] Moon Adamant: how many parcels'
[11:37] Moon Adamant: ?
[11:38] Delia Lake: and the idea is similar to what is done in some of the national parks in the us where land is leased and people can build homes that are consistent with the envionmental concerns of the area
[11:38] Delia Lake: well, 7 or maybe 8
[11:38] Moon Adamant: ok
[11:38] Moon Adamant: do you have a covenant?
[11:38] Delia Lake: not yet
[11:38] Rose Springvale: the AA covenant applies
[11:38] Delia Lake: yes. of course
[11:38] Rose Springvale: but we dont' have specifics on the sim for building
[11:38] Rose Springvale: would need to add a paragraph
[11:39] Delia Lake: that's one of the reasons I want you both to see this
[11:39] Moon Adamant: i don't know how is the building on that area
[11:39] Moon Adamant: i need to research
[11:39] Delia Lake: the building on this sim is similar to the farm houses of basque country
[11:39] Moon Adamant: eheheh never been there either lol
[11:40] Moon Adamant: but ok, we can set that as standard
[11:40] Rose Springvale: Moon, let me add something here...
[11:40] Delia Lake: in part at least, with some environmentally responsible upgrades like solar panels on the roofs
[11:40] Delia Lake: and wind power
[11:40] Rose Springvale: Delia is the tenant as far as AA and now CDS is concerned, and has set her own standards there
[11:40] Moon Adamant: ah, ok
[11:41] Delia Lake: so it's a combo of reusing and recycling older buildings so to speak
[11:41] Sudane Erato: in what way would the residences spoil the integrity of the space on the ground... since both areas represent the same natural setting?
[11:41] Moon Adamant: well, that's an interesting idea
[11:42] Delia Lake: the intent is to have people live there who would want to be part of developing models for living comfortably in harmony with the natural environment
[11:42] Moon Adamant: you could have an example house, with green hints
[11:42] Delia Lake: yes moon
[11:42] Delia Lake: but the solar panels aren't on the roof yet
[11:42] Sudane Erato: :)
[11:42] Delia Lake: i have 4 houses in various stages of building
[11:42] Rose Springvale: we have to be careful on the ground too, because it is adjacent to the alhambra sims
[11:43] Rose Springvale: which are 13th centuruy
[11:43] Delia Lake: yes
[11:43] Sudane Erato: yes... that makes sense
[11:43] Moon Adamant looks at map
[11:43] Rose Springvale: we dont' want an abrupt change of theme
[11:43] Delia Lake: and the buildings in the sky look like old buildings from the visible sides also
[11:43] Delia Lake: as does my cottage on the ground level
[11:43] Moon Adamant: hmmm
[11:43] Moon Adamant: what you can do is
[11:44] Moon Adamant: build northwards of that bay on the south
[11:44] Moon Adamant: so there's a geographical separation
[11:45] Delia Lake: since there don't seem to be other people coming to the guild meeting today, would you like to go on a tour now?
[11:45] Moon Adamant: ok :)
[11:45] Moon Adamant: just one thing then
[11:45] Rose Springvale will change her shoes...
[11:45] Moon Adamant: as agreed on the last meeting
[11:45] Sudane Erato won't need to
[11:45] Moon Adamant: Sonja has posted about the Assistant role
[11:45] Moon Adamant: in here
[11:45] Rose Springvale: pfft
[11:45] Rose Springvale: sorry :)
[11:45] Moon Adamant: http://forums.slcds.info/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=2552

[11:46] Moon Adamant: so i invite you all to read and contribute
[11:46] Delia Lake: ok
[11:46] Moon Adamant: and suggest an adjournment now :)
[11:46] Moon Adamant: and we'll meet at Albaycin
[11:46] Rose Springvale: i don't think we need an assistant
[11:46] Sudane Erato: agreed
[11:46] Moon Adamant: and discuss it informally
[11:47] Delia Lake gave you Albaycin Nature Preserve, Al Andalus Albaycin (166, 100, 26).
[11:47] Moon Adamant: thanks Delia
[11:47] Moon Adamant: :)
[11:47] Sudane Erato: which space first?
[11:47] Delia Lake: the surface level first then the sky
[11:47] Moon Adamant: ok
[11:47] Sudane Erato: kk
[11:48] Moon Adamant: meeting adjourned then with your agreement?
[11:48] Delia Lake: yes
[11:48] Rose Springvale: yes :)
