Your company owner (flying it) more like.
Not that you'd go very far: the Wrights only flew for 30 seconds first time.

I like making poodles chase french hats of the top of it, like in that movie :wink:


but seriously, I wouldn't want to see the tower in the middle of the countryside, and it should be in a city.

Jowood loves the eifell tower, there was one in Traffic Giant

The carpenter's shop

Lumberjack camps fell the trees. At sawmills the trunks are cut into planks and finally used for wooden houses by the skillful workers of carpenter shops.

Bauxite mine

(click to zoom)

How are raw materials being mined, and what are they made into? Let's take a closer look into this with the example of a complete production line.
Our demonstration begins with a mine that extracts bauxite. Next week's update will then show how it is processed.

Aluminum works

Last week, we introduced a bauxite mine. Consequently, this week it's the turn of the aluminum works. The bauxite is taken to the aluminum works, where the aluminum is extracted. Next week we'll add the last link in the chain and demonstrate what the aluminum is used for.

The last link in the chain of aluminum production is the factory for household articles. This is where various articles for everyday use are produced. The products are taken straight from the factory to the consumers in the towns.

Clay Pit
Image
click to zoom
Clay is one of man's oldest raw materials. This valuable material has been dug up from clay pits for thousands of years. While the methods of extracting clay have been modernized and optimized over the years, the material itself is often still used for the exact same purpose as ever. Look out for our next update to see what clay is used for.

Most of you will have guessed it: Of course clay is used for making bricks! The bricks are taken straight to the consumer to be used as a building material.

Botanical gardens

(no zoom)

Whenever it's grey and miserable outside, a visit to the botanical gardens will help chase away any rising depression. And the haulier will be happy to hear the cash tills ringing too, thanks to plenty of paying passengers.

Looks nice but I miss some structure in the glass pains. If the greenhouses of the old days were really made like this they wouldn't be here nowadays. Oh wait, hardly any survived (but the problem was the casting iron instead of poor construction techniques). And blue tinted glass in a late 19th century building? Blue tinted means it has a thin layer of tin foil on it. Very progressive :lol: ...

Theme casino

(click to zoom)

Nowadays, gambling alone is just not enough. Casino owners are aiming to offer their valued customers more and more additional entertainment. Therefore, today's casinos are built in any imaginable shape, even resembling glass pyramids.
To the haulage contractor, it's all the same. The main thing to him is that as many people as possible wish to be taken to these temples of leisure.
