Micropolis, year 45

For the fully illustrated story, click: --> Year 45 <-- (63 pictures, 600x450 )

"A greener future?" - an era ends, another begins. Micropolis will never be quite the same again. Even the weather seems to have lost its way.

This is a pretty big update. I'm afraid I have to tell you that henceforth, I will no longer be able to produce one year per week. I am not sure whether I should publish half a neighborhood each weekend or the whole neighborhood every other weekend. Actually, even that may be hard to keep up, but at least it won't require me to quit my job. ^_^
