Welcome to Gionia! To follow the great tradition of Young’s Shannonia, I’m giving you a tour around town!
High society beach district: where only the richest of Gionia settle for their well deserved vacation of eleven months.
Jewellery district: the place is also known as mushroom town. Not named after the oddly shaped buildings, but mostly named after the stuff they smoke up there. Anyway, nice jewelry here. Weird, but nice.
Ministry of taxes, spare tires & usefull advice. Abandoned ever since no one don’t need those things anymore.
City administration centre. The place where generally everything goes wrong.
City police department. The place where generally everything goes wrong…wait, what? Oh…
Built on a solid plate of gold stands casino Cash – Cash. The favourite hang out of administrators and other corrupted no good son of a “#@&’s spending their black market money on black jack & Daniels Jack.
Right across the street we have the new fire department in fiery red and yellow. New, I say, because it recently burnt down, for the 42nd time. It is to be opened as soon as the new fire trucks get in…
And then we have the city hall where, as far as we know, nobody ever went in or out. The biggest reason for that is because it has no doors or windows. A minor administrational error.
The Striped Socks Soccer stadium. Not much to see here, only 22 nut cakes trying to get to the the ball first and then shoot it back again…losers…anyway, moving along!
Swim city project: a futile attempt to make a swimming centre with VERTICAL swimming pools. In association with the Anti – Gravity Power Plant. (For more inf -> Anti – Gravity Power Plant)
This is where the best of the best of the best pilots teach the dumb4ssesof Gionia airport how to handle an airplane: The Aviation Training Centre.
Behind it: one of the finest places in all of Gionia to have a bite to eat: Restaurant Le Big Moc. Originally meant to be named Le Big Mac. Another minor administrational error.
Gionia airport shares most of its grounds with the military of course. And as Gionia is a peacefull, and therefore utterly boring, city; nothing ever happens here.
Or, wait a minute! Indeed something IS happening. Three tanks (all three tanks of Gionia) are rolling out, right there at the post office. I wonder…
Bleus school. For the happy few among us.
This is the place to hang out, relax, jog, steal old ladies purses, you know, a park. Ever since the old forest died, due to the monastery’s activities, the city needed a new green place: The Hanging Gardens Project Babylon. Built on the Gionia garbage dump. A more fortunate administrational error.
Next to it we have the library of forbidden books. Very frequently visited place there. Busy, busy, busy!
The Monastery of monolithic monks is a place of silence and inner reflection of former basketball players who want to dedicate their lives to carving small statues out of pure plutonium. It’s been a while since we heard of them. Hmmm…
Across the street: Gionia’s bank, not much of a building since everything is underground!
Behind it: the dead forest. Crap! It isn’t supposed to look THAT dead! Everything is burnt here!
Aaah! The museum of micro orgasms. Oops! I mean orgasms. Let me try again: micro orgasms, ORGASMS! Nooooo, orgasms!!! Dang, what is that word?!
Army rocket base…strange…everything is burnt here as well?
The cinema and theatre, temples of highly evaporative art. Standing brotherly next to each other and all in ashes now…What the hell is going on here? And what is taking that fire department so long? Oh…right…
Well here’s something that isn’t a surprise! The La Strada Hotel is entirely built in black coal and therefore extremely fragile. Given all the fires around now, the place must be glowing hot!
The Anti Gravity Power Plant: Gionia’s industrial site. Held responsible for nearly, close, but not quite yet, inventing Non – Gravitational Environments that…oh well, who am I kidding? Nothing really happens here…
OMG! Gionia is under attack! What are those things? Aliens? Can openers? Or have I been in the jewellery district too long?
Time to call in Thunderchild! The pride of our fleet will show them a lesson! Hmmm… only trouble is: by the time they get to the shore, there won’t be a city left to fight for…
My own way to celebrate 3 years of fun on MOCpages with a micro scale version of my first post here! Thanks for watching and feel free to leave a comment!
Whoa, 3 years?! I guess my first post was that long ago as well, craziness! I still haven't built that Spinal Tap MOC we were talking about (the starfighter I named Spinal Tap doesn't count), I should get on that...
This is a great MOC by the way, love all the administrative errors. :D
Quoting Mark Kelso
So that's why the last three years have been the darkest times of my life. I knew it had something to do with you! (Actually great to have you with us for so long...hope you can stand another three!)
(oh no, it's him again) heh, thank you Mark. I promise to stay here as long as it takes to see you and the gang in real life. Maybe. One day...
First, are there any openings in the Jewelry District? Really sounds like my kind of place! I think Dennis is wrong, you had the word right to begin with. LOL Loving all your variety in architecture, those tanks are great, but the WOTW minis are absofrakkinlutely awesome! What a way to celebrate 3 years. Cheers to you!~H
