Atlantis World Page

Caring's Atlantis Recommendation

You'll want to see Attawa's Underground Caverns in beautiful Atlantis. Atlantis 156.0N 27.3E 0.2a 349.



Mars World Page

Canopus' Mars Recommendation

On the desert landscapes of Mars, color is one of the most important things for a successful human habitation. For this month, I've picked four outstanding sites discovered during the 2001 census: first, Zighy's place (735N 575E); second, Aack's settlement in the hills (418S 370E 1.95A); third, sysop's rock home at Tycho's Crater (862S 590W); and most colorful of all, Jernau and Zola's extravaganza of desert architecture (984S 697E).

GooberKing's UTN Recommendation

Yeti City - AW 9043.1n 7190.8e

Lots of towns claim to be "cities", but this city actually fits the bill! With lots of tall buildings and skyscrapers, this city has all the hustling and bustling of a huge metropolis! You can also find plenty of residential builds and available land out in the "suburbs" of Yeti City. Be sure to check out some of their tallest buildings, like OneAlpha Trade Center and Yeti Tower! So visit Yeti City, and get a taste of the city life!

Duskbat's Historical Recommendation

Hello all my friends in Alphaworld. I hope all is well and everyone is having lots of fun. I know yall are busy as there seems to be many new builds being completed and finished and ones in the works. I hear that someone is building a great cruise ship in AW! Its wonderful to hear that. Alphaworld will be around forever so lets add our builds now to be seen later by the new aw generations to come. Anyways on to the hot pick of the month. This is a teleport center that a cit. has done in AW. Madame Thespian is the builder. the coords are 221.0S 638.2E 0.0a 179. And the point is as you get a lot of builds under your belt its fun to create a teleport build with teleports to all your work. Except that secret place you don't want any visitors at :) visit this nice teleport area and try them out. Builds in AW are art! when are you going to see them all. Stay posted to this newsletter for more.

Light Form's Yellow Recommendation

Yellowstone Lonely Mountain - Yellow 303.3s 300.2w

Who hasn't heard of Smaug? If you read last months Recommended Hot Spots to Visit you would know that one of Smaugs Atlantis's builds was featured. And I am proud to lead you all to another one of his exquisite creations. A picnic area, a trail that leads ever, ever on. What else could you ask for? How about acres and acres of virtual territory covered with the stuff Yellow is famous for, hiking trails and trees. And if you're lucky, you may even find the Lonely Mountain or a Ranger station. Smaug has left no detail out in the Lonely Mountain Wilderness wonderland, where you can spend the exploring and mapping, or just having fun and getting lost. Beautiful scenery, and a tad to much z-buffering, but nothing you cant get around. Its all there at 303.3s 300.2w in Yellow. Make sure you enjoy.

AWCOMREG's Recommendation

Nottsville - AW 27000N 13000W

Nottsville is an aesthetically pleasing group of islands, that make up the infrastructure of the town. The town's building style is highly reminiscent of the famous white picket fences of the golden years. With beautiful sandy beaches, lush grass and more then it's fair share of attractions Nottsville provides something for everyone.
