oiling festival planning

Not a day goes by that someone does not ask me about the Oiling Festival, so I guess its time to talk about it. Here is the preliminary list which is still highly flexible.

  • park benches
  • hand tools
  • honking big machines, with operating instructions
  • economics
  • portrait: the Machine and I
  • house boats
  • street signs
  • towers
  • imperial flag – redux

That’s my top 9. It is by no means final. I’ve also got 2 sponsor proposals from Cyan’s Brewery (a statue) and Ahab’s Revenge. What do you have?

    Heroic Valve Turning.  Maybe as a photo contest.

    oh goodness! Steam driven park benches…. rising from the ground on the simple pull of a lever, in a cloud of clean steam from the underground pistons, neatly plumbed into the City’s steam network…. what a wonderful idea, and anyhow, what could possibly go wrong….?

    Indeed, hope to possibly sponser more than one contest for Ahab’s.

      Thinking of changing the portrait to ‘heroic proletariats’ after kimika’s response. what is not to like about thewy women and chisel faced men in drab coveralls wielding cheater bars? don’t put it in stone on a poster yet.

    kk  .. your call there .. no rush ..


    but but what about  the  rub a dub tub ???  ((laughs))

      i’m going to say no because that could fall under another umbrella, like HBM’s or City Maintenence Equipment. Yes, you would have to process an urchin before shoving him into a classroom of you wanted to keep the teachers on staff. It’s like vaccinations.

    A quick question, Mr Tenk, can we use mesh in our builds yet please?

    • Mr Tenk Mr Tenk February 20, 2012


      that is a non-issue here, as nearly everyone jumped over to the new viewers right away.

      i will be using land impact vice prims for this year’s contests.
