Workers’ Paradise in Stormland

I toyed with making you some hot car action to tease you with over the weekend, featuring our new vehicles tearing up the streets. But then I realised it wouldn't be safe to raise your blood pressure like that, given there's still twelve days to go before you can get your hands on the new packs.

So instead, we'll keep everything down to earth, and stick with some purely functional, boring, working class housing. It's inspired by some of the tenement buildings I saw in East Berlin when I went there in 1999 doing research for a game set in the Cold War, but could be adapted easily to fit into much of Northern Europe, from Paris or Manchester to Denmark or Finland. Just change the bricks, change the windows, change the porches, and there you go. It's built with exactly the same kit of parts as the Georgian terrace I made earlier this week, and took just under an hour to create the entire set.



The varying height of roof lines was quite deliberate. As bits of the buildings crumbled, they sometimes just took the upper floor off, and replaced it with a flat roof.

Oh hang on, just a sec... what's that I spy up on the roof? Could it be... a roof garden? So it is... Somewhere for the apparatchiks to sit out and admire the view over the steel mills and the tractor factories. What's in the back of my mind now is pigeons and Forrest Whittaker and some sword animations... you know what I'm thinking of, right?



Would you like to see it move? You would? OK, then...
