The waterfront area of Micropolis Bay has grown significantly over time, but I still feel that Holy Island is a bit close to the coastline. I wanted to move it 16 studs further away in both directions, so I needed build some more water modules to make the shift. For today’s video, I will show you a half block piece which fits between Butler’s Dock and Holy Island (to shift the island to the right) and a quarter block to fill the end of the run next to Surfers’ Point.
This is Butler’s Dock, the last addition to my Micropolis waterfront for the moment. It is a working dock with cranes on the jetties which load up small cargo boats which ply the waters of Micropolis Bay. At the end is the Crafty Crab, a former fish-canning factory turned trendy seafood restaurant The waiting list for a table is weeks and weeks.
The next addition to the waterfront for Micropolis is Haven Harbour. It sits at the corner of Micropolis Bay and has moorings for sailing boats as well as the jetty for the small ferry which takes people across to Holy Island. The surrounding street is lined with colourful trees to provide some shade.
Dolphin Point is a half block containing luxury apartments situated on the banks of Micropolis Bay, overlooking Holy Island.
I was inspired by a consignment of dark green mermaid tails which I got in a bulk lot, and wondered what I could do with them. I also had some 1×2 dark green bricks from a pick a brick visit, so I teamed these up with some trans neon green and silver accent pieces to give it a bit of a nautical theme. Mermaid House was born.
