Post by will on 27th November 2011, 01:49

History:
In 1616, Dutch explorers discovered the isle of Meridiania, or Vrijmakenland as they called it but was not formally taken over until 26 January 1788, the same day as neighboring Austrailia. On July 23rd, 1877, Meridiania officially ratified their constitution and declared William Sharp the First Prime Minister of the Commonwealth. The Main International Airport in Angelorium is named for him (William Sharp International Airport). The Commonwealth was given further independence by the Statute of Westminister of 1931.The first founded city was Gezag along the East Coast of Vulputate by the 1616 dutch explorers and was free of the Dutch Kingdom. In 2011, the NOB, short for Nederlandse Onafharikelijkheid Bondgenootschap, a Nationalist group in the dutch regions of the southwest, declared their independence from the Commonwealth and the fight will soon begin for their independence. Former NOB leader, current President of Stille Nederlandse Eray Koorn is currently the most wanted man by the VNCI.

1940-1945: World War II

Club Génial, the hottest club in South Juliet


French inhabited South Juliet


William Sharp International Airport, the main airport in Angelorium, is located at the edge of the Grand Redwood Forests of North Meridiania. The Airport was opened in 1931 as Angelorium International Airport, however was renamed in 1945 as William Sharp International. William Sharp was the first Prime Minister of Meridiania.


The Redwood Forests of North Meridiania.

If you notice, I have really poor grapics settings on all updates before Angelorium v2. Those are expected to continue to stay at their current level from now on.

So, is this an application to become Full Member? I am guessing it is.

---

One thing though, your climate... being so far south it seems weird for you to have deserts and tropics when if you think about it, you would be around Northern America if you flipped your nation across the equator. Clarification would be appreciated Smile Thanks

Thats what member state means, correct? I'll fix that. As for the climate, It's like Australia, the central areas are pretty dry but the coasts aren't.

Only admins can vote on full membership applications.

I would say yes but with improvement, there are some areas which need more refinement.

Haha sorry for my tardiness, been pulling a 65/70 hour week with college, work(x2) and volunteering the past fortnight and week ahead! Freedom will come next Thursday which I intend to spend sleeping!

Here's your checklist:

COLOR CODING:

Green means you have completed this to a good standard and no improvements are required to progress
Orange means you have completed this to a reasonable standard but this will need to be improved on if you become an associate member. (in other words, this must turn green before applying for member state)
Red means this has been completed to a poor standard and will need to be improved before your application can progress
Bolded black means that this has not been included in your application and therefore you will need to provide evidence before your application can progress. In the secondary list, you will only have to provide evidence if you have not provided four other greens/oranges.


MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS - All must be green

A minimum of ten in-game pictures of your nation
A unique and realistic flag of your nation
A unique and realistic coat of arms for your nation
A map of your nation's location that does not overlap with an existing AIN nation and is realistic to your CJ style
A type of government that again matches your CJ style

A realistic size and population of your nation
No in-game UI
A reasonable ratio of custom content to maxis provided content (50/50 minimum), as that there is little repetition and a constant style of architecture
A detailed and realistic context (history) for your nation

The Network Addon Mod (NAM)

SUPPLEMENTARY REQUIREMENTS - At least 4 must be green

A custom terrain mod
Previous, positive and active contribution to the AIN

Attention to detail
A custom water mod
A decent amount of realism (no airports ending with a mountain or skyscrapers in the middle of a small town)
Regular updates and commitment to an external city journal (on either Simtropolis, SC4Devotion, SimPeg or Simsports, links required)
Active participation in a previous union (links required)
Have hosted a community event (must have been on a previous union or a site such as Simtropolis, SC4Devotion or Simsports, links required)
Realistic transport network appropriate to your city style and location (maps or pictures should be provided)
Custom Trees

Decent attempt at custom BATs/lots (pictures required)


COMMENTS:

You are a brilliant example to people starting at the bottom of the AIN - this is an absolutely massive improvement and Meridiania v2 is astounding.
The realism in your final picture (could maybe do with a few MMP rock IMO) is fantastic, original and has inspired me for Killorglin's roads.
Congrats on all your hard work and onwards to Member stateship!


VOTING OPEN NOW

YES!

Blushing Thanks, and, I could even make 2 of the other 3 supplemental green if you want Smile Only thing I should point out is that the poll looks like it will let me vote. How many votes do I need? It's only admins voting so it's 4 right?

Nope anyone can vote, bit undemocratic of me to decide that but because of lack of activity with admins (due to a variety of reasons) I think it is fairer on them, yourself and the other members to vote on this.

So you need 4/5 majority with at least 10 votes.

If you want to go get me evidence for full marks then go ahead and post below (keep it separate so I notice)... Smile

Previous Union, you can ask alot of people, I'm an ex member of USNW from May to August 2011...
http://www.usnw.net/t441-will-roberts-for-minister-of-statistics
http://www.usnw.net/t440-will-roberts-for-minister-of-culture-and-events
http://www.usnw.net/t237-embassies-in-calma
A few threads I think could help. One is the embassy thread from my previous nation Calma Domhain, and the other two are my ministry campaigns. I ran unopposed but left the union before I took office. I can't seem to find my previous nations on there but I had one until early august, then created Meridiania/Aquilonia (Land of the North/Land of the South, that's why I changed the name when I came to AIN, was in two different hemispheres)

Previously hosted community events. Previously I've hosted about 4-5 leagues, mostly motorsports related, and am currently running the AINGP, or AGPS as it's now called. Due to AIFF forums being deleted on Simsports, I can't show the links to the Futsal World Cup I hosted there in 2010 but I've got a pic here from that. The final between Escambia and Duwamish.

Also hosted the Sim Rugby World Cup, September 2009, which Wacky was in charge of, and I hosted.
http://www.simtropolis.com/forum/topic/38067-sim-rugby-world-cup/page__st__30__p__996859__hl__rugby__fromsearch__1#entry996859

I have one previous lot attempt, not really much but it was included on the last STEX dvd, not sure if I can provide a copy of the email though.
http://www.simtropolis.com/forum/files/file/20910-michilan-tire-store/


Keep in mind, I'm still new with photoshop, I've only been using it since midsummer before that I used Paint, which I was actually very good with, thats why some pics are not very good.

That work?

LOT, I didn't bat it, LBT did. I was still new to everything around here at that point Cheeky/Razz I forgot to ask but I don't think they ever released it as a lot, just in a prop pack. I also did a version of a few of their gas stations. unfortunatly, I don't think my LE works now. I also did the Grandstand at all my racetracks in my updates.

I'm not a fan of you island design, looks more like a shoe out of place, maybe a little more chunky or a little more spread out. But I do like your internal design of your landscapes
