FRENCH : Vers la fin du 21ème siècle, la fulgurante montée des eaux sur Terre obligea 4 millions de jamaïcains à quitter leur île natale pour s'intégrer dans les différents continents de l'époque. Six siècles plus tard, la première ville nomade mise en service fut baptisée NeoKingston en mémoire de la ville engloutie du même nom sur Terre.
Avec ses gigantesques structures magnétiques, Neo Kingston se déplace constamment sur différentes zones stratégiques de la planète Gliese 832C. L'avantage de ce type de structures permets d'éviter d'assécher les ressources environnantes en déplaçant la ville dès qu'un seuil de pollution approche d'un niveau critique. Au delà de son aspect technique, NeoKingston tente actuellement une renaissance de la culture rastafari, mais ce type de tradition semble peu compatible avec les nombreux détecteurs de fumée présents dans toute la ville.

ENGLISH :
In the end of the 21st century, the meteoric rise of water on Earth forced 4 million os Jamaicans to flee their native island to fit into the different continents. Six centuries later, the first nomadic city commissioned was named NeoKingston in memory of the sunken city on Earth.
With its huge magnetic structures, NeoKingston constantly moves on different strategic areas of the planet Gliese 832C. The advantage of such structures allow to avoid draining the surrounding resources by moving the city as soon as a pollution threshold approaching a critical level. Beyond its technical aspect, NeoKingston is attempting a rebirth of the Rastafarian culture, but this type of tradition seems hardly compatible with the many smoke detectors present in the whole city.

Could you make a drawing of an environment from the games Destiny or Halo? A picture of Destiny's Cosmodrome or Venus in your style would be amazing!

That's a really neat idea! I love the look of the city itself, and the fact that you gave it a story makes the image even more rich.

Cette vue aérienne fait la différence! Superbe design tout en simplicité. J'adore le détail de l'ombre jetée de la ville. Joli soucis du détail! Du travail bien fait! :clap::sun:
