IMPORTANT Island Opportunity

Calling all McCitizens...

We're creating the opportunity for select players to manage the following island
- Austrum
This role will require you to put together a team (or if you prefer to work alone, include detailed reasoning and how you plan to accomplish tasks) to modernize the island.
Some of the criteria required for applying:
- 20 days of /ar time (Your chosen teammates don't necessarily have to meet this)
- A detailed plan on what you plan to accomplish
- A reasonable deadline (If you fail to make this, the island and its assets may be stripped from your team at any time)
What will be expected for the project:
- Will have to be modern themed. No fantasy/sci-fi themes.
- Must have some sort of town/city hall
- Public homes for players, we will not region mansion plots for private use
Note that if you win you do NOT OWN but you will have control over the majority of decisions made regarding the island. Propose your island teams and ideas below this thread.

The due date for proposals is February 15. The most viable plans will be cast into a vote shortly after the deadline.

My team if they so choose:
@SkyTaker153 due to her ability to build fantastic styles homes and buildings, ie my cafe I own that she built and runs @oceanview-001
@Shadow_stalker77 due to his amazing modern style as seen he built for me such as @runhped

If you know my Omni Corp style then you know it's all modern. I've always been in the retail game and if I got the chance to oversee an island redevelopment then itd guarantee to be one full of shops/stores, public facilities, and a welcoming environment to allow players to feel like they're on vacation. Think of it more as a resort style rebuild. A getaway. Austrum.

My team: Me, myself, I.
Plans: So, an idea I’ve had for a while now was a cool island resort, in a similar vain to Wuhu Island from Wii Sports. So, the redesign would involve a cool country club build, a cool golf course, maybe a hotel somewhere, some tennis courts, and some luxury villas for players. Maybe, there can be a large shopping district where players can run shops and can fuel the island economy, if there’s room, but mainly, my idea here is to try to incorporate player input into the design, so any residents of the island currently will be happy with the redesign and want to still have properties on the island. Austrum needs work on it, and I believe that this idea could work to make players happy and want to stay on the island.
As a way to finish this reasonably, I will try to outsource some work to players who are interested in helping (tree designs, roadwork, etc.) and make a detailed schedule in order to effectively complete the island build in a reasonable time. (If anyone’s interested, I’ll be paying out some cash for these small tasks!)

Alright, throwing my hat into the ring as I’ll be up for a challenge once I can come back.

Username: Neilio_Xtreme
Team: To be determined. My idea is to make selections for projects based on merit-based competitions i.e. building competitions, completing slimefun puzzles under certain time limits, etc.

Austrum is a great name for an ultra-modern city. The aesthetic would take inspiration from places like Tokyo or Singapore. Clean, high-tech, bright. That sort of thing.

Without giving away too much detail yet, the core goals would be
1. A layout that feels like a city, but more than just blocks and blocks of houses. Pedestrian areas with interesting things to see, space for events, multiple areas for player-made sculptures that would rotate every 2-4 weeks based on decisions by a committee (subject to enough submissions ofc)

2. An electricity network accessible by most of the island. Full coverage is probably too ambitious for now but this goal aims to provide residents with consistent Slimefun electricity. Complete with some redundant systems to offset the inevitable breakdown of components like capacitors. Also hiring technicians with proper equipment to maintain and replace items if necessary. Probably the most ambitious goal but I’ve got plenty of slimefun experience and I’m willing to use my personal capital to make it happen.

3. Player-run Casino and entertainment district. Again, specifics of games/machines later but essentially a place for players to congregate and interact. Events on an irregular (maybe regular eventually) basis. The intention isn’t to take away from warps that may provide similar services but rather to offer a player-run version of these things using existing plugins/mechanics.

Now, the deadline. I won’t be active for another 2 months or so.
But within a month of starting the project the island would be livable, with some electricity coverage.
Estimating 8 weeks after starting the casino would be running, a city center would be developed nicely, and at least 3-4 distinct residential districts would be finished.
After that we can assess whether more is needed in a certain area based on need, so residential, commercial, industrial, entertainment, etc.
The idea is to spend a little time beforehand planning out the layout before building, taking into account my goals and expected future growth.

Probably my last day to post for a while, but I also thought that a week ago. If I am selected please give me some time.
