More Mopire Adventures

My interest in Mopire City has become reinvigorated. I realised that all this time, because the place is so huge, my attention has been on the macro aspects of the place, all the wonderful external elements… I haven’t really looked inside, at the micro details… there is a lot to see, there. I went back and started looking more closely, in the area I discovered, the other day. I quickly found a parking building I had never been into, and, on the third floor, I found something interesting. All the vehicles you see in the city are prop vehicles, bland looking, generic urban vehicles, probably not even drivable, but, parked in this building, I found four vastly different beasts; an SUV, a muscle car, and two lovely little, vintage sports cars, all clearly drivable. These totally reinforce my theory about Mopire City being someones private playground. You can rez a vehicle in the city, as long as you get straight into it, and stay in it, but if you get out of it for a few minutes, it is returned to your inventory… that is clearly not what happens for the owners of these vehicles. A new theory began to formulate in my mind…

… I decided to go and have a look in the underground tunnels, a place I don’t actually like going. I remembered I’d seen an entrance, just around the corner from the parking building, in the area I only explored for the first time, the other day. My new theory was reinforced by the nearness of the parking building to the tunnel entrance… now I didn’t so much feel I was in the ‘Twilight Zone’, as much as in ‘Grand Theft Auto’…

… in the tunnels I quickly found various coloured spheres containing mysterious scripts, and some little blue pyramids, with no scripts, that were ‘transfer only’. I suspect that the spheres are lap-counters, or something of that nature, and the pyramids are, perhaps, trophies to be collected? I think these tunnels are a racetrack for the little boys club who must hang out here, in their own private world of cars and guns and a huge, beautiful, empty city. I could be wrong, of course, but the evidence is compelling. These tunnels are a big network, and I don’t actually enjoy being in them, they feel like you could actually get lost, down here…

… so I found the nearest way out. It was nice to be back in the fresh air…

… almost beneath R2. I straight away noticed a very colourful floor on the building beside the overpass, it jumped out because nothing in Mopire City is that colourful. I had to go and see. I jumped off the overpass, made my way to the building, and climbed five floors up, (Mopire City is one of those places where you actually have to physically make your way… if you try to ‘double-click TP’ somewhere, you go straight back to the ‘landing area’) and went inside…

… it was, by far, the most personal/unique interior I have so far seen in Mopire City (this part of the city is actually called ‘R2 Fashion’)…

… I climbed the rest of the way to the roof…

… for the view. Then I jumped off, but only made it 3 floors down, to this area, which still had a pretty nice view…

… the quickest way down, of course…

… was to jump, again…

… I hit the ground in a crouch, sprung up, and set off in search of more Mopire fun.
