Overview > Collaboration > AR120 > Huntington Plan
[#3464]

Since it’s coming back up and now that the FSA capital area has a project manager, I think we should have a discussion on some preliminary plans for our capital area. While there are some basic sketches located here and Zytik has been discussing his proposal here, I think we need to discuss some larger concepts first:

  • Was Huntington planned and built earlier in the FSA’s history (e.g., Washington DC), a more modern master-planned city (e.g. Brasilia) or somewhere in between (e.g., Canberra)?
  • Should the entire district be master-planned, or should a smaller urban area around the primary government buildings be planned first with more “organic” growth throughout the district?
  • Is the topography flat, hilly, or somewhere in between?
  • Any preliminary plans for the suburban areas in the three neighboring states?
  • Any other topics that need to be discussed before we decide on a city plan.

This thread is not to determine or vote on a plan for Huntington. We have plenty of time to figure out a full plan for the capital (all the time in the world, actually) so there’s no reason to rush any decisions, but figuring out some of these “base line” ideas now will help us come up with a better, more realistic capital in the future.

»Also how do we get Huntington's suburbs to not look completely different in every state?«
Easy. Just build in them. By joining the FS, they agreed to collaborate, and for some states, house Huntington's suburbs.

If it helps, I'm picturing western Newlynn with some fairly steep hills running generally north-south. This would probably constrict the the east-west roads, limiting them to a handful of busy arterials or minor expressways.

As a state-owner bordering Huntington, I'm more than willing to coordinate and help with mapping on either side of the border, but I don't appreciate the 'do it or we'll do it for you' message. Secondly, there are several real-world examples of cities not growing on all sides. As an example from my area, Savannah, GA doesn't sprawl into neighboring South Carolina.

Point taken. And no offense to the state owners surrounding Huntington.

No hard feelings. When the Huntington area is built out more, I may consider inviting some mappers to the Newlynn side when I feel ready.

If you want, I can start with the railway-connections of Huntingdon east of the river.

Question: Who is the second Huntington coordinator?

Posted by Rhiney boi on 1 July 2019 at 18:39.

To my knowledge, the second Huntington corridor position is vacant.

Exactly what type of help do you guys need? As long as it wouldn't take too much away from working on Seneppi I'd be willing to help, I had thought there were already a lot of people working on Huntington so I didn't really figure help was needed

I really do want to do some big work on Huntington, and if its immediate development I can turn all of my attention to Huntington. However, I wanted to see the capital developed in different segments by different users, but this has been hard since only 2 people stepped forward the last time I put the idea out there. I am currently waiting until more users populate the FSA, as this current wave of users is, and then I am going to send out messages to each of the owners to find out who may be interested in building a portion of the capital. Of course, I ultimately do some of the touching up like curve smoothing and details to keep a consistent level of detail across the city, but most of the physical design and locationals will be up to each respective user.
