A few months ago I saw an image on Google of a large, blocky building with a letterbox-style inset around two sides on the first floor. I thought about it for a while and eventually this design formed the seed of the idea for this building, Big Orange Storage.
I’ve been wanting to make some more industrial structures for my microscale city for some time, and decided that a small factory would be my next project. The Boot Factory will form a quarter block plot somewhere on the outskirts of the airport, along with some other industrial units.
While I was at the Pick A Brick wall buying parts for my last model, Six Bricks, I also noticed that they had thousands of these blue 1×2 grille slopes. So I picked up a couple of generous handfuls and threw them into my pot. When I got home, I put together this block, Blue Distribution, which is a firm which specialises in Logistics and moving goods around Micropolis. The warehouse sits in the Industrial zone close to the airport, for quick transport links out of town as well.
The Green Energy Corporation have been trying to get more eco-friendly means of generating power in Micropolis. They already have the Green Energy Biomass Plant which takes waste and generates heat from it. But they have just opened this Solar Farm on the outskirts of the city, where the sun’s rays can be harvested for electricty in a clean and efficient manner.
The residents of Micropolis love their cheese. And some tiny enterprising businessman decided to start a cheese-importing business. It grew and grew, so much so that he has just had to open this new Cheese warehouse, Fromage Place.
