Greetings all, some pressing family matters have come up and I'm afraid I'm probably going to be out of it for a while. I wanted to hold of updating some of these materials a short while longer, however I believe they are presentable.

This is is about 4x higher resolution then the previous version, the Megacity will be somewhere along the isthmus of the crater rim, with the elevator stretching far into the sky. So when you fly down to the surface, it won't look like Minecraft meets Mrs. Pacman. (click images for a larger view)
I hope this was an acceptable temporary parting gift. Remember, HSI depends on the community spreading the news of our work, your homework assignment is to tell someone about HSI and send them our way (especially if they have leet modding skills).
