Ok, so I now hate doing city maps, but I promised you a Battle of DC Map, and I will deliver. I'm working 10 hour days in the burning sun of the Mojave, but I will deliver... it just might take a bit longer than I'd like.

So, first thing first: NO requests. I don't do t those. My time actually has value now, so unless someone is willing to pay me for my time, I'm not going to do something I'm not invested in. Second, here's a teaser segment from the Battle of DC:

...Beneath the molten slag of the Washington Monument, the first wave of Mexican shock troops landed in the American Capitol. Falling like snow with the unfiltered fallout, 20,000 Mexican Orbital Command Shock Troopers are Mexico's greatest gambit to date. With the Colonial Fleet a little more than a day from arrival, Mexican war planners hoped to leave their enemies leaderless, and the Colonies to try and salvage what remained of their Homeland. President Halvidar, and most of the US Congress survived the attack, as Mexico knew they would, safe beneath the surface of the Capitol in the myriad of bunkers and shelters constructed over the course of centuries. The goal now was simple, capture or kill Halvidar and whatever remained of the military leadership.

Spreading out from the landing zone to overrun the Capitol Building, the Mexicans found only a small force of Capital Police, and ceremonial Marines defending the Congress. With the Capitol dome crumbling from a combination of age and what damage was incurred from the flare that split the sky, the US forces were overwhelmed in short order, and the few members of the government unfortunate enough to have missed the tram out of the city were taken as POWs. Meanwhile, Mexican troopers moved to take Union Station where a wave of US National Guard units had arrived to defend the city. Barely assembled and with only the old stone building to shield them from the barrage of laser fire and impactor rounds, the National Guard forces held the line, but were unable to move from their makeshift castle and mount a coherent defense of the city. Forces coming in from the West, however, were able to stop the Mexican forces from advancing across the Potomac, making a stand at the Temple of the Union. With most forces on the continent fighting in the Southwest, the forces that had rushed to defend DC barely numbered 5000. While the majority of US forces had been stalled at opposite ends of the National Mall, the initial landing party faced the worst of the fighting, as the White House grounds became the site of the heaviest fighting of the Battle of DC...'

Ok that's all ya get for now!

I'm just another denizen of the internet seeking enlightenment in a world of trolls, false flaggers, and flamers.

I'm from Western Washington, though I hate Nirvana, Coffee and Microsoft.

I'm an aerospace engineer in training (mostly so I can pick up women by saying I'm a rocket scientist)

Politically I can best be described as Liberal American Exceptionalist; so basically I want Universal Healthcare as an excuse to annex Canada.

I love sci-fi movies, books, and TV shows, classic cars and modern ones too, bitching about politics, speculating about the future, and analyzing the past.

Current Residence: Prescott, Arizona
Favourite genre of music: Rock in all its forms and all its glory!
Operating System: Mac, but switching to Ubuntu
MP3 player of choice: iPod Classic
Favourite cartoon character: Gene Starwind, Vegeta, Brian Griffin, Katara, Nicholas D. Wolfwood, Spike, Batou

Is it true that the US's infrastructure is decaying quite badly or is that just conspiracy theory rubbish spouted out by the brain dead morons that tend to believe that kind of stuff ?

US Infrastructure has seen better days and it does need an overhaul, but its not like roads and bridges are unsafe to drive on everywhere you go, and damns are routinely shutting down due to neglect. A few major roadways are being either torn down or refurbished, and it will become a big problem if we don't address it soon, but for now our infrastructure is about as well put together as it needs to be.

Ahh that's good news I guess then. I mainly asked since I come across some nutcase who kept saying Hoover Dam was on it's last legs and would collapse at any moment which means Lake Mead would flood outwards which I'm assuming would be bad.

So I learned there was a second renaissance page on Future Wiki. I get that parts of it are still in Old 2nd renaissance form, not the new iteration. 

That being said...The Hikari Hikari? is that in this timeline?

The Star War is way way way way WAY down the road. I'm not even thinking of it at this point. All I'll say is that I'm going to have it start in the 24th Century, and last through to the 37th.

Do you feel that Putin's gamble with the Crimea and the Ukrainian rebels was all an elaborate gambit to boost his support among the Russian voters after all the protest and such when he was reelected for his third term ?.
