Good Things Come...

Yes, the new Hard Alley is being delayed.  The builders are taking great care to create a really awesome place for you to play, and that takes time.

This rebuild is not going to be easy.  We're not taking a bunch of mesh buildings off Marketplace and slapping them down and calling it a rebuild.  The new Hard Alley will be nearly 90% original mesh buildings, created specifically for Hard Alley.

Some of these new buildings are easier than others and take less time.  But the iconic buildings... the Club... Lynden Labs... City Hall... the Burlesque Hall... those are more complex and require more thought and planning and modeling and texturing.

I hope you will bear with us as we progress.  Our builders, Jaimy Hancroft of Death Row Designs and Tito DeVinna of Rule 34, are doing an incredible job and it is obvious from the work they have done that this is a labor of love for them.

I wish I could share more with you.  I wish I could show you what they have accomplished so far, because it's amazing and I can't wait to see it all finished.

I can tease you with one shot... one glimpse at the new Hard Alley.  I hope it makes you go "Wow!" like it did me when I first saw it.

Good things come to those who wait.

The Destruction of Hard Alley

During the War with the Faction, many parts of Hard Alley were burned down or destroyed.  Spirit Eleonara did a series of pictures showcasing the destruction...

First Strike:  City Hall
The Burning of the Brothel
Random Destruction
Attack on the Strip Club
The Fall of Lynden Labs 

The end of Hard Alley brings with it many questions... What will happen next?  How will Hard Alley recover?  Is there a future for Hard Alley?

The answers to these questions is coming... soon.
