Name of the town: Greyfordville

Company Name: Quicksliver wool co.

Resources available: wool, wheat

Elements of the town: Big factory , large garden, small complex near factory where residence stay

Population: 1, 802

Explanation / Brief History: This town is located in eastern England since the early 1800s, most residence work at the factory where they spend most of their day making wool, its a very fast pace job. However people that are too young to work in the factories work in the garden where they grow wheat. Then after a long day they had back too their complex which is where almost all of their wage goes too, the rest goes too the little amount of food they can get near the complex.

A. How was the ease of access in building the town, and what software did you use specifically?

It was difficult at times because it would glitch out at times and not work, it was also hard to save. I use the website City Creator

B. Were you able to apply the skills you learned in the planning stages appropriately to a digital environment?

Yes I kind of had an idea of what i wanted to look like and took the steps to figure out how to do it.

C. What were the sources you researched that made this an “authentic make-believe” town?

I searched up images of towns looked back in the day, i also learnt from Lyddie what a town would kind of look like from their daily experinces.

D. Is there other software online that could have done the job better? Explain

Not really I think the website I used did a pretty good job.


  1. What were your books? my book was “The curious incident of the dog in the night time” Did you enjoy them? Yea I thought it was a pretty good book it kept me reading. It was just hard to understand his thoughts sometimes cause it was so complicated.
  2. How did you feel about working with a partner? I thought it was fine Did you make the work equal? Yea I think it was pretty equal Was it more trouble than a benefit? no, I don’t think so, it was just hard recording in a quiet library
  3. What was your takeaway from the project? I learned how to make somewhat of a podcast

I couldn’t get the podcast on my laptop but the podcast is on Luuka’s blog


My Reflection

Tim Burton, in Edward Scissorhands, used a lot of close-ups in the Kim talking to Edward scene to show that Kim cares about Edward in order to prove that there is a connection and romance between the two. For example, in my own interpretation, I changed his scissor hands in some sense because when Edward was with Kim he felt like he was normal and there was a lot of high key lighting but in the end scenes when Kim left he realized that he’s always gonna be different, not enough. This adaptation from film to visual novel taught me to see movies and shows from a different perspective and the way they’re made. Now I find myself paying attention to the lighting and cuts when I’m watching a movie.

most memorable foods experience

my most memorable foods experience was the mal and cheese off. I thought it was really fun coming up wit ideas of what my Mack and cheese off would be. We ended up going with a Mack and cheese sandwich, since we made grilled cheese the day before me and my groupmates thought it would be a good idea to combine them both together for the ultimate comfort food. The day of the lab we washed our hands and got the ingredients from the supply table , the safety per cations were knife ,meat ,and stove safety. we toasted the two piece of bread then put the Mack an cheese in it. To mix up the Mack and cheese we added two types of cheese for extra flavor, some jalapeno for some spice, some herbs for extra color, and some bacon for protein. The final result turned out really good it was crunchy, soft, warm, and perfectly melted. It looked very nice and appetizing and it smelt really good. And even though we didn’t win I really enjoyed making this.
