History

Lanaya has not a very big story because it is only 300 years since the island was discovered by a British explorer named John Blakeway, who worked for France in 1710. France has used the island as a place to transfer cargo between the mainland and India. Lanaya has developed gradually and until 1734, when they began to exploit the land, making agriculture and livestock in the valleys, and especially wood for shipbuilding. This brought a great wave of European immigration, but primarily of African slaves. Life goes on, the colony prospered, France is worried and shrugged taxes dramatically in the early 19th century. Moreover, the gap between the rich merchants and French governors and the Lanayan people had become too large and that led to the creation of several anti-slavery for independence rallies. In 1834, the War of Independence broke out between France and Lanaya after filing the declaration of independence by Philippe Solando, who was the general of the independence side army, to the French governor. It was the February 17th. At the beginning of the war, France was winning. But the revolutionaries resisted as best they could until the summer when almost all hope of victory was destroyed. Stroke of luck for Lanaya, Great Britain, sworn enemy of France, joins the side of independence movement, providing the victory to Lanaya. Why Britain helped Lanaya? Simply to have a revenge for the assistance provided by France to the Americans during the American War of Independence. It was time to choose the type of government and the Parliamentary Constitutional Republic was a unanimous choice.
After independence, an economic crisis ravaging the country for two years, but the economy stabilized and experienced a great boom during the industrial revolution. The country has not participated in WW1, but cons, it participated in the second. Since 1945, nationalism has a strong presence in the country after the loss of several soldiers and international involvement in politic and ecologic in the world and on its own territory affected Lanaya positively.

Very nice start, Blakeway! Only one problem: the Maxis ferry terminals at the bottom of the last image. You can replace them with PEG's OWW2 Ferry Terminal on the PLEX.

Blake, your temperature scale is completely wrong for your location. If you look at the weather of the Prince Edward Islands (which Lanaya is almost on top of), you get:
Wikipedia wrote:The islands lie directly in the path of eastward-moving depressions all year round and this gives them an unusually cool and windy climate. Strong winds blow almost every day of the year and the prevailing wind direction is north-westerly. Annual rainfall averages from 2400mm up to over 3000mm on Mascarin Peak. It rains on average about 320 days a year (about 28 days a month) and the islands are among the cloudiest places in the world - about 1300 hours a year on the sheltered eastern side of Marion island but falling to around 800 hours away from the coast and on the wet western sides of Marion and Prince Edward Island. Summer and winter have fairly similar climates with cold winds and threat of snow or frost possible at any time of the year. However, the mean temperature in February (midsummer) is 8.3 °C (46.9 °F) and in August (midwinter) it is 3.9 °C (39.0 °F).
You're probably not far off the worst place in the world to put an island!

That's hardly a problem. If Maxis terminals suit the situation, then why not use them? (and don't say "because they're Maxis" - give me a proper reason)

Don't worry guys, I'm updating it Very Happy Thanks for the advise Joe Razz

Climate and Weather:
Weather conditions are similar to the United Kingdom, with more hours of sunshine and less rainfall on average. Winters are generally mild with some light snow and summers are slightly cooler than in Britain. Temperatures range from -5°C to 20°C. The islands are relatively sunny in summer, with daily hours of sunshine similar to England's southern coastal regions. It is generally wetter on the west than the east of the islands.

Really? Try Ireland - the climate described above is almost identical... Razz

I deplace the island, it's now located more in North, a bit higher than Flaklands. The Climate and weather:

Much better Smile, although I suspect the Falklands are sheltered a bit, since the prevailing wind is from the west at these latitudes and South America is the only thing in their way. Maybe more wind and rain for Lanaya than the Falklands?
You'll never get -25°C there either. The sea is a great leveller when it comes to temperatures, so -5 looks abut right.

City's looking very nice too Smile
