Alliance Games Bid | Illium City

Post by daTS » June 4th 2014, 1:26 am

Ladies and Gentlemen, Welcome to Illium City's bid for the 2014 Alliance Games!

Her Majesty, the Queen of the Kingdom of Illium, Skylar Nichole Sariah proudly welcomes you to our great Kingdom. We hope that this bid is taken well and graciously ask for your vote for our bid. On behalf of our Monarch and Leader, thank you for your consideration!

As per bid guidelines, here is what we have to present!


It must be a city of at least 100,000 inhabitants | Illium City's population is 1.4 Million and growing!
It needs an adequate stadium | The AIN Games Complex is home to a half dozen stadiums and arenas
Your City needs an airport and well developed Mass transit | It has passenger and high speed rail running from the Airport, and a very thorough bus and metro system.
Your Bid needs a logo and a slogan | See below!
Your City needs adequate accommodation for athletes, spectators and journalists | The Arts/Suites district is home to "Hotel Row", a row of luxury suites and hotels able to house roughly 35,000 guests. The Complex's proximity to downtown and the Embassy Complex allows for quick access to more hotels and suites nearby. The City has invested heavily in housing for nearly a million visitors.

Here we have the Arts and Suites Districts, home to Hotel Row, a small but popular beachfront, and the Opera House, with a beautiful coastwalk vista.

Here we have the HSR terminal on the north side of the complex. This HSR terminal connects to both Downtown, the Embassy Complex and Sariah International Airport.

Here is nearby Downtown!

Great stuff! Good to see our first entry. I particularly like that little pond/stream you've got running in between the airport terminals, it's a neat idea I haven't seen in an airport build before. Kind of reminds me of the Citadel Presidium in Mass Effect. :D

That's one fantastic bid, Anthony! Even I wouldn't want to compete against what you've posted.

My only concern at this point is with the slogan. I know enough Latin to recognize what you were going for ("may the best country win"), and that what Google gave you isn't really good Latin at all. With my knowledge and a bit of trial and error, I've come up with a phrase that's both fully grammatical Latin, and captures your intended sentiment quite well. I think "Patria optima vincat" would make a better slogan, and I hope it meets with your satisfaction. :)

Best of luck to you, although with a bid like this one, I doubt you'll need it! :D
Feel brand new. Be inspired.

Thank you all for the kind words!

I hope that you'll bid for me! On that note... shouldn't bidding be closed now?

Bidding is in fact closed. I just have not locked the threads of your bids for whatsoever reasons.

Retrospectively Otto, we should have done one of them black highlighted white text malarkies saying that voting will not take place internally.

Nice work! A lot of open and green space in that Games complex. I like the different heights with that station - really imaginative use of the land there.
