Charleston was the Republic of Atlas's capital city on World 5. It is to this day the largest in terms of area in the clans history but did have some flaws such as lag, poor structures and planning.
The city was created by Red when World 5 opened up, the main roads were laid out with plots. This was theme with many RoA cities, especially the early ones. The city took quite a while to populate due to a member slump during the time the world was created.
The city started at the spawn point which was a small building with the rules and message board. This lead to the main street which had some shops and also led to the main residential area. There were two significant halves to the city. The upper half had lots of houses but very few shops. The lower half housed many residents but also had all the shops, government buildings and ocean.
The city had the best skyline of any of the cities as well, with 3 skyscrapers. These skyscrapers were heavily world edited though and were quite empty.
Notable Buildings Edit
The Council Building Edit
This building housed the council of the Republic with the forum room and some side rooms for the council to discuss in. It was hardly used however it was the first tall structure built in the city.
The Apartment Building Edit
This was the second skyscraper made in the city and took the entire maps length to finish the interior, it was a common recurring joke between the staff and RoA citizens. It was beautiful but very empty inside.
Atlas Tower Edit
This tower was modeled after Principal Tower in real life Des Moines, Iowa. Built by Red in the first month of the server, it was used for bussiness.SrSucesso and Marcopolo in the first floor had a building company,in the second floor there were also bussiness.
The Horse Track Edit
This track was a 112 block long sprint track made for horses. Many races were held here and many people used the track to get their horses speed. It was very large but also very world edited.
Hach's Tower Edit
Hach's tower was a massive tower erecting from the sea. It was home to Hach and his antics/insanity. Notable events include the destruction of his tower by OffTheAir, to which hacher5 attained his own revenge by destroying Air's house not too long after.
Despite its numerous issues and flaws, Charleston is often looked at as one of the best cities The Republic of Atlas ever had. This is partly due to the fact that it existed in a golden age of the clan and at the beginning of Allimore. Other clans had yet to populate the server and The Grand Spencorian Empire joined only in the final months of the world.
- The city shares a theme with many RoA cities, built in a desert. This feature was resented by many members but it was chosed for a reason; rain lag. The server was laggy without rain but when it rained everyone felt it.
- The city's nickname was "Lag City" because many members, including Air, couldn't even be there for more than an hour because of the intense lag.
- Marcopolo573 created a very close to scale Millennium Falcon from Star Wars in the city.
- The Council Building was an idea created by the ever so handsome hacher5
- It has been speculated that part of the lag was due to a mushroom island inhabited by SrSucesso, KyhleX and Lycanc5. On this island Srsucesso and Lycanc5 started to breed mooshrooms like there was no tomorrow, the last counting was estimated to be 700 (real numbers) and the double in chickens, the plan was to see how many cows the players could fit on a fraction of the island, KyhleX just used the island as an alchemy lab.
