Automated Looms within Eye-Sight

Loom Automation, the tech that will give everyone all over Egypt the glory that is Automated looms, is very nearly complete at the University of Architecture in Eastern Grounds! By contributing to complete the research, anyone will be able to go to the EG U Arch, get the tech, and build automated looms in a compound anywhere.

automated-looms

All that is required is 758 eyelets, cut from ANY gemstone.

Donations of eyelet cut gemstones and cuttable gems can be made in the Auto Loom Donations chest in RP 1537, 2856, just 5 seconds from the River Plains CS (look for the Obelisk!)

Why do you want an Auto Loom? Because they are FANTASTIC. Load the loom with thousands of thread, twine or wool and the Auto Loom will spit out canvas, linen and wool cloth like MAGIC. No more END timers, no more tapping a loom every X seconds… just pure textile wizardry.

Please drop off your donations of cut eyelets and/or cuttable gems to make this magic happen. And if you are willing to join the “HELL YES I want Auto Looms, let me cut some eyelets!” crew, please /chat Eimear to get on the list of gem cutters. Thanks so much!

Public Fishing Camps Open in RP and MV

A public fishing camp has been opened in River Plains in the midst of the Nile. Organised by Hanjo and Eimear, the camp is situated on a busy fishing spot and features a public kitchen for instant filleting; public storage chests for holding whole catches and filleted meat while you fish; and even a public ferry for easy access. The camp can be reached by swimming from either shore or by ferry from 1397, 3431 just at the RP Aquaduct pump.

A similar camp has also been opened at the popular “hill” fishing spot in MV at 763, 5117 just a short jog from the CS. Organised by Myn, this camp has public storage and is also large enough to house two public kitchens. These kitchens are upgraded, meaning it is possible to cook on-site and make both speedy fishing food for uncommon fish and the required SINK food to eat with it.

And, as a reminder, you can donate any fish you don’t need. A massive 30K perch is needed for Mutagenics to cover all of the regions in which it is not yet open; rotten fish in huge quantities is also needed for fertilizer to bulb all of the sea lilies needed for Advanced Horticulture, which gets us to Xenobotany and finally to the roses needed for Worship tests.

As usual, donations are organised by Ariella and can go to the Tech Mats warehouses in 7L at the CS by the four red trees, or RP by the CS at 1575, 2874.

Beetle Crush Mania Donation Drive!

Inspired by Blondie’s donation of 50 beetles, a community drive is underway to generate Khefre’s Essence for research. You can drop off any stray, found, or un-needed bred beetles in the Khefre’s Locker located 10 seconds due east of the CS at Midland Valley at 1002, 4896.

The research requirement is for 20 more Khefre’s Essence, and 500 beetles are needed to make just one. But the Beetle Crush Mania crusher is at 64% already, so to generate one complete Khefre’s Essence we only need another 180 beetles! Your donation of any beetles, from 1 on up, will help meet this goal.

The Essence made from this event will go to Ariella to support Advanced Horticulture tech. If the locker is full or you have more than 50 beetles to donate, please chat Eimear for crushing services 🙂

Why Donate?

  • Khefre’s Essence is needed for the donations Universities require to release the Advanced Horticulture tech;
  • Advanced Horticulture is needed in order to get to Xenobotany;
  • Xenobotany is needed to grow roses;
  • Roses are needed to release the Test of Festivals  and can of course be used in making even more beautiful gardens for Test of the Formal Garden.

If we can get just one Khefre’s Esssence made from community beetle donations, it will be a successful drive. Thanks!

Sparkly Gem School to Open

The long-awaited Gem School is under construction by the River Plains Chariot Stop at 1568, 2900, within easy reach of the planned watermines along the canal. A wonderful wiki resource page has also been linked to the Guides menu on the Wiki home page, building from the resources in previous tales. The enhanced graphics (by Safa) look awesome!

You can help it become a great resource for us all by donating cuttable amethysts and turquoise (or the Queen’s Tomb gems), as well as any mats for the planned water mines. The donations warehouse is located at 1561, 2901, or chat cate anytime!

When Chariots Go Boom…?

Explosives tech was opened this week, and with it Augir posted in Egypt Today asking for donations to urgently complete Chariot Repair 2 to insure against damage that could theoretically be caused to Chariots:

With the explosives open, Chariot Repair 2 tech is needed in case of accident or malicious act. Most advanced donation is in 7L, UHarm. We are done with boards and today, with help from Qwu, Cut Stone was finished. What we still need? 1.3 mil of bricks, 37k of Rope, 21k of Canvas, 9.5k of linen, 1000 Streel Cable. Anyone able to help with this crucial tech please donate…

Apparently, 7L researchers had planned to hold back the research donations needed to complete Explosives until Chariot Repair 2 was completed, but an anonymous donor dumped in the final requirements.

Chariot Repair 2 donations can be made at University of Harmony in 7L.
