Weekly Word #1

Posted by niels20020 on 5 June 2017 in English (English)

Hello everyone!

So we have Luciano's Monthly Mapper's Challenge and Sarepava's Coffee Break Construction (though the last one is rather inactive now), but I thought of a new weekly 'mini-mapper's challenge'.

It is called the "Weekly Word". The rules are simple: every Monday I will post a word and you can, if you want, participate by mapping something that has something to do with that word. It may be anything: big and small. For example: if the Weekly Word is car, you could make a fuel station, a highway or just a parking area.

Do you think this is a nice idea?

Anyway, this week's word is:

LOVE

I hope you will build something cool. Share your mapping in the comments!

Niels

Hey Niels,

I want to submit something.

You can find it here. It is called Equality Park in Montecari, Leresso. This park was built around the idea that we are all humans, and there should be no discrimination of race, gender, or sexual orientation. On one of the memorial walls, the words "yahyom et yahyom" is etched into the stone. Underneath, it says "Love is Love" in Ingerish. Yahyom et yahyom means Love is Love in Everian. Underneath the Ingerish translation is "Love is Love" in every known language. Surrounding that is the names of every single LGBTQ+ identifying person killed in hate crimes across the country of Leresso. It stands as a beacon of hope for all those who will come, by remembering those who came before.

I really hope you like it.

Oh well Alessa, I get to be a warm, empathetic person from time to time too. But then I immediately return to my cold, shady persona as usual.

Love is a really broad topic, do Brothels count? :D

I thought I'd incorporate another important type of love, the love of a caring family. :) Family is really important in Freedemia so I created a Family Monument where the Honorary Monument used to be before I moved it to another part of the Capitol Mall. There are a few statues surrounding the main monument that are meant to help represent the family spirit so strong in Freedemia.

Inspired a bit by the museum at the monument to women in military in D.C. and how it managed to act as a broad monument/tribute to women in the military all throughout history, I've created a museum outside the monument known as the Museum of Freedemian Families. It'll have a tribute to Freedemian families all throughout history from all backgrounds and walks of life, changing exhibits every month or so to honor more families. The museum will especially include families that made it through hard times, whether that's through the loss of a loved one or coming back together after a long feud or making it though hardships like the Graham City Financial Crisis, etc.

(The museum is still under construction though. Hence the brown area surrounding it.)

@geoboi There's no winner, it's just a challenge.

@martinum4 Eh, I think so :D

@Ernestpcosby Very nice! I know that Freedemia has high family values, so it really fits in your country :) Great mapping as well!

I almost forgot to make my own entry for this challenge :o

I created Hotel L, which is a romantic hotel in Playa Amarillo. Only couples are allowed in this hotel.
