Fan Age expedition: the Sev Ages [spoilers]

Sev Sen Show Spoiler

On the 40th expedition of the Fan Ages Touring Club we visited the Sev ages, written by Ametist’s 6th grade students: Sev Fah, Sev Bree, Sev Sen, Sev Tor. We also visited Chamassa Restoration, TikiBear’s latest effort. See Minasunda’s video!


The Sev Ages, released in September 2010, were part of Ametist’s class in 2010. There was one computer, so Ametist set a timer for each team. She even managed to convince the IT guy to open a port so they could visit the completed ages! The requirements were to include a shelter, some objects and a skybox:
  • Sev Fah has a torus, a cone, a sphere, a brown wall, but has no sounds.
  • Sev Bree has a lake, a pyramid, and a grey wall; the shelter’s roof is not solid.
  • Sev Sen has a large pyramid shelter, a cylinder, and a white wall; the shelter’s roof is solid.
  • Sev Tor has a large cylinder, a pyramid with fading sides, and no wall.

Like with Geologica, Ametist’s students’ work shows how age building can be used for educational purposes, and is an impressive effort from a school class! If you happen to be one of Ametist’s old students, do let us know :)


Then, we visited the latest effort of the Sprite Gallery Restoration Lab: Chamassa Restoration! Sprite Gallery itself has been reverted to its non-Halloween look, but has some new features, like an Eddie bean bag. Poor Eddie!
Chamassa, originally released on January 2010 by Brattin and part of a previous expedition, now includes a turbolift to the various balconies of the central fortress, and a few tweaks like moving sails on the windmill.
Chamassa is quite a good age, with great models; with proper textures and lighting, it could be one of the best.
The restoration effort is still underway (mainly the stairs seem a bit stuttery), so we will come back in the future ;)


A Twitch stream will be available for the next two weeks.

Next time (November 29 at 11:00 KIT) we will visit ages with giant board games: Bowling, Chess, Backgammon, Checkers. Until then!
