Surrendering to Imperial City

I’ve sat here for 2 weeks staring at Minecraft, trying to decide which project to start working on.  And I keep drawing blanks.  I have three locations to pick from, but I’m afraid the projects are just too big and I can’t wrap my head around any of them yet. I think I’m almost trying to bite off too much. All three are major projects, which are going to culminate in new cities.  I think I need something smaller.

In the meanwhile, I keep ending up in Imperial City. Looking at it.  Seeing things I can upgrade, or add.  Its a problem I’ve had for years, and its the reason the city hasn’t stopped developing and growing in 8 years.

I keep ending up on the eastern side of the city, just staring at it. I can see my next expansion here, and I just keep coming up with more ideas.

It’s time to give in. I’m going to stop fighting it, and just work on Imperial City some more.  Nothing else is coming to me creativity-wise, and Imperial City just never shuts up in that fashion.

I’m going to expand outwards towards the East, the opposite side of where I recently added the International District.  It has a variety of land, ranging from a high hill at the south, to a jungle in the north.  It also contains a cute little ravine that I plan to build down into. I may even cover over the steep valley outside of the current East Gate, and make an underground area where the main road passes through.

Its all in the planning stages still, but at least I’m having ideas.
