A few years back there was a thing going on, in the Hirstarts forum. It was known as Hirstopia or something similar. From what I recall, the premise was quite simple, a street plan was drawn up, divided into many individual plots and people claimed areas for development. So for example forum users might have chosen to build the town's first inn or smithy or bakery...they would submit their idea and be granted a plot.
I don't know how far they got with the idea, because around that time I got drawn into other things, but I think they may have had an html page drawn up, so that clicking on an individual plot on the street plan, opened up a picture of that building. Alas when my interest in Hirstarts was rekindled, Hirstopia had faded into obscurity.
I remember when I first stumbled upon Hirstopia, feeling that there was an amazing potential. Not just to showcase the models people had made, but to weave them together into a coherent story. To create, in effect, a fantasy world.
Does anyone here remember anything about Hirstopia? .. What do people think, is this something you would be prepared to contribute to? Any feedback at all would be appreciated.
