Oooh, the update hit KS before here, interesting.

I presume that I'll be in one of the other groups, but what I'm seeing so far makes me confident that whichever of my choices is picked will wind up looking great.

And Conga Rats on the Project That's Keeping You Busy, Petalstorm!

Yay, Petalstorm, delivering in all the ways that you can possibly do it :D That sonogram pic let me know just how creative you can really be, plus I LOVE the bldg. with the female archer on top, too. Those special KS bldgs. are gonna make a real impact on the city's character. I simply love everything you do. Thank you for the update (and the special pic, too :] May there be another flowering mind born to you <3)

From the KS page (~60% or so down the page ->https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/missingworldsmedia/the-phoenix-proj...) ...

Mogul - $500 [backer level]
Join the likes of Carnegie, Vanderbilt and Hershey: have
one of our glorious skyscrapers named after you (or as
you choose, pending approval), and gain the building's
penthouse as a unique living space or super base.

...

Later on, it was announced that a backer's Mogul "structure"
would not be restricted to skyscrapers or their penthouses.

And grats, Petalstorm!

Moguls were an Add-on, not a backer level.

You could back at the Armchair Hero level for $5, and then add on the Mogul perk for $500, for a total pledge of $505.

I found a reference to the devs saying the release date was being pushed back to 2016, followed by a thank-you from Dr. Tyche for the reminder that the FAQ needed updating, but I haven't yet found that announcement itself. The search function doesn't seem to like me today. :(

And why do all the replies lately seem to be replying to themselves? (the links still work, but the numbers displayed are wrong)

I'm surprised that a bridge was not one of the choices, given the symbolism and grandeur of a really good suspension bridge.

I'd be surprised if no one chose a bridge, even if it wasn't offered. The map (slide 15 in the powerpoint presentation mentioned in this post) indicates we need lots of bridges. And if someone had a good idea, I wouldn't be surprised if the devs replaced one.

Okay, as of this moment, jokes about Petalstorm "camping spawn" are off limits.

Nope. Not gonna say it.

... although ... that said ... about Build That Bridge (to nowhere?) ...

I am actually interested in hearing what kind of decorative motif (or motifs) the art department is going to go for with regards to the bridges in town ... either for the Moguls or just because we needed a bridge there. I say this because the bridges that we saw in City of Heroes were either:

I say this because one of the things that wouldn't surprise me (and which I'd enjoy seeing) is some old ironworks bridges like you'd find in Europe, presumably erected early in the city's history in either the 18th or 19th centuries and maintained all the way on up through the present day.

You could still do a blend of the Ye Olde and the Hypertech New, giving you a sense of a city that has HISTORY ...

You follow me?

Golden Gate Bridge 1.7 miles

Golden Gate Bridge 1.7 miles long, Alcatraz 1.5 miles offshore... If he could move it intact, it would work. But the whole thing would have to be moved, not just breaking off one end and pivoting it.

*looks at map*

Now the Bay Bridge just might be long enough... if you could get that one section out from under Yerba Buena Island ^_^

If you want a serious bridge,

If you want a serious bridge, try the one in Millau (France). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millau_Viaduct. The construction was awesome as they essentially rolled it out from both ends, so it had to meet in the middle and it did to within a few cm.

I am really looking forward

I am really looking forward to seeing what everyone chooses to do for their moguls. My wife also really likes Red Belly Bob's fish market, and hopes there will be an exploration badge for the fish like there was for the donut in faultline in City of Heroes. She was trying to get me to go for an 24 hour diner for my mogul choice, but I ended up asking for a more traditional skyscraper. I think it will be interesting to see how many people ask for smaller structures.

If I submitted my Mogul survey and have not heard anything back yet, is that an indicator that everything is ok with it or should I be worried that something didn't go through correctly?
