Project overview and history:
This is the largest modelling project I have ever undertaken, and is a massive challenge, but is also fun, hence the reason I persevere and continue making it. This project started earlier this year to see if I could effectively make a set of roads as a basis for a larger project. This small set of roads eventually expanded and I started modelling buildings, and eventually I decided to turn it into a full island for the MI project. I contacted illspirit to see what he thought and whether it could become a part of the MI project. Positive comments and project approval was given and the project continued in full force. Unfortunately the island was flawed, since it was an expanding project that received little to no planning, it became messy and unorganised. Before long, this mess became disappointing, and a project restart was made. The entire road and land mass was scraped, and a new one was made, superior to the old one, and larger as well. Old buildings and development were transferred over, and new buildings are being modelled to fill the new room. Raar!
