In this update we're going to see the new research and assembly center of Insulo's space ageny (ISPERA), South Shore Military Base. It is located on the southeast corner of the Island in one of the least populated areas in the entire country. There are no launch pads due to Insulo's high latitude, all missions will be launched from a launch pad in Gansbaai.

The road to the center base is currently being rebuilt where it was washed out by an intense rainstorm.

Speaking of storms, as reach the gate to the base the sky is beginning to cloud up.

The rain begins as we see the assembly warehouses where rockets, satellites, and landers will be built.

The rain has become a downpour and begun to mix with sleet as we look at the docks including the patrol boats that protect ships that dock at the base.

The storm finally dies down as we look at the mission control center.

And last but not least as the rain stops, we see the research facility where scientists are currently planning Insulo's first space mission.

Hope you enjoyed this update, next week, unless change my mind, we will explore the city of Scio, home to Vilhelmo Forgisto University and the USNW Ministry of Health, Safety, and Education.

Hello Everyone, finally a complete update, this one I've been teasing for a while, my first update on my very lose re-creation of the Island of La Palma, which I'm really having fun with, it let's me do something different than I usually do, and gives me a lot of creative mobility. This doesn't mean Insulo is dead, this is still part of Insulo, and we'll get back to the mainland eventually, better to spend winter in the tropics anyway Smile .

So, for this first view of La Palma we'll explore the area around the little town of Las Mariposas, wedged between beautiful beaches and the towering volcano that produced their glimmering black sand.

We'll start High on the mountainside, in one of the numerous nature preserves on the La Palma. The island supports a vast variety of Flora, some of that variety can be seen here.

[Only admins are allowed to see this image]

We follow the road down the hillside, and to the entrance to the preserve, where a small picnic area for the people who come to see the natural wealth of the Island.

[Only admins are allowed to see this image]

Now we move on to the pleasant little town most visitors to the park use as a home base, Las Mariposas. They take advantage of the many rooms rented out by local families, where they can get homey comforts and a low price.

[Only admins are allowed to see this image]

As you can see, the town has it's own charms, it's been here for hundreds of years nearly unchanged, the whole town is protected as a historic site, especially guarded is it's church, built in the year 1523.

[Only admins are allowed to see this image]

Oh, we almost forgot the best part of Las Mariposas, it is close to one of the best most pristine and beautiful beaches you will find anywhere, with it's black sand sparkling in the tropical sun.

[Only admins are allowed to see this image]

Well that's all for now, hope you enjoyed this little tour, I enjoyed making it.

To view this Newspaper properly you need a real browser, Like Opera or Firefox. I recommend Opera 11, [Only admins are allowed to see this link]. I may be using this image format in the future in my CJ as well, as it is much more versatile than .GIF.

Welcome the city of Alcelago on the eastern border of Insulo with Posillpo, a portion of the city is actually in Posillipo. This is an interesting city, in 1934 a massive earthquake destroyed every building in the city except the tiny chapel now in the center of the Main Street Plaza, and drained Alcelago's namesake lake. The city was rebuilt in the style of the time with large parkways to allow for easy walking and space for events.. The city is the former capital of Republic of Bascla, which joined Insulo after the earthquake devastated the country. Bascla is currently seeking representation as a separate province from Los Lagos.

An overview of the center of Alcelago, with the rebuilt Basclan Capital Building at the top and the Survival Chapel at the intersection near the bottom.

The newest buildings in Alcelago glisten in the sun. From left to right you see the Atlantica Financial Branch, the Ramos and Sons Architectural Firm, the Sunspire Hotel, and at the bottom right the top of the new TeleInsulo Headquarter, which moved to Alcelago in July 2010. On the far left you can see the Villate Real Hotel, one of the most renowned hotels in all of Insulo.

The Capital subway station and the Border arch that stands between Insulo and Posillipo. The border between Insulo and Posillipo is a completely open border.

A stretch of gravel mountain road outside of Alcelago, drivers have to be careful here as there is a chance of falling rocks.


Hope you enjoyed this update, it was again something I hadn't really tried before with the mountain but I think it came out great, I like working in this region as much if not more than in La Palma, so you're likely to see a few updates at least from here.

In this update we are again visiting the border city of Alcelago, which straddles the border between Insulo and Posillipo. All the areas showm in this update are inside Insulo.

(Note: Just to point out, I do have Chip's Permission to display parts of Posillipo I have created)

...Yaaaaaawn... Time to wake up. Wow it's foggy outside, I can barely see the dried pond from my cabin windows.
[Only admins are allowed to see this image]

Well that fog lifted quckly, it's now a bright monday morning, here you can see an overview of the area we'll be exploring today.
[Only admins are allowed to see this image]

*Eating Sounds* Mmmm, Nothing beats the breakfast burrito at Winnie's Drive-In, the Drive-In is famous for good food delivered quickly, and is a popular hangout for the students from the High School just down the street.
[Only admins are allowed to see this image]

Here you see the Library of Bascla and the First Basclan Bank, with a newer quaint shopping district in the background. The first Basclan Bank was one of the first buildings rebuilt after the earthquake, and helped finance much of the relief effort by the charity of it's founder F.K. Morgani.
[Only admins are allowed to see this image]

Alcelago General Hosptital Towers over it's surroundings. Built in 1963, it is still one of the largest Hospitals in Insulo, and people come from all over the country to visit it's Cardiac Specialists.
[Only admins are allowed to see this image]

Finally we see the fuel behind all the small shops and restaurants in this area, Alcelago Central High School, the largest High School in Alcelago.

As always, I hope you enjoyed this update. If you have any questions feel free to ask them, and comments are much appreciated.

Thank you.

About the effect, it's my house choice image effect, I varied it a bit more than last update this time.

First I desaturate the picture, then I changed the color balance to yellow, and then added a mild softglow effect. I did this all in GIMP.

I also added some light effects to the solar panels.

Hope that helps. Smile

I felt like starting up a little story in my CJ, centering around an event and using the news to communicate the story, along with a bit of description by me of course. Hope you like it. This first section won't have much commentary because it's essentially an introduction, plus a picture is worth a thousand words.




This Afternoon Insulonians were watching their favorite TV shows when this popped on the screen.

[Only admins are allowed to see this image]

For Clarification Purposes, Andalusia is a country south of a group of Islands owned by Insulo, and a former possession of Insulo.

Then just minutes later President Clarke, clearly enraged by the "attack" held an impromptu press conference about the incident.

[Only admins are allowed to see this image]

Then about half an hour later they were stunned when this news broke.

To be continued.....

No nonsense update this time:

[Only admins are allowed to see this image]

This morning the doctors at the military hospital in San Sebastian held a press conference to discuss the dead and injured in the attack on the BNI Hidalgo.

[Only admins are allowed to see this image]

Later in the day more stunning news surfaced, and people began to think they were at war...

[Only admins are allowed to see this image]

...then they finally had someone to blame...

[Only admins are allowed to see this image]



...And now they are truly at war.


More Coming Soon...

Hoped you liked this, and again the minimal text is on purpose, you'll get a huge debrief later in case you missed anything. Also I hope to keep up the rapid updates (compared to my normal posting patterns. We'll also explore Paxí as a normal cj update eventually.

Yes there is a typo in the last image, sorry, but it happens in the real news sometimes, so I guess I'll just leave it.
