Foresne is a town in the south of the New World founded by i____7d on 10 September 2019.

Pronunciation & Name

Foresne is pronounced "For-rain" and not "Fore-sen". (Yes. It's a difficult name)

Foresne means "Forest Demesne".

History

Founding

“While I was waiting for my member application results, I was looking for a place to build my town, Foresne. At first, I considered the ice plains biome south of the Fort Yaxier area and the extreme west part of the Southern Line. I went to check out the latter (fun fact: I didn't use warps) but it was already claimed by other people. I didn't bother to check out the former. But then, I discovered the forest around SW6. It has a lot of hills and lagoons, which I liked. There is an extreme biome at SW5 and lots of high cliffs around SW7, so I planned to extend Foresne there too. So there was where Foresne is.” —i____7d

Foresne was founded on 10 September 2019, when i____7d was promoted to Member. He first built the roads. A big “welcome to Foresne” sign was erected in front of the MRT station entrance. He then built the police post, the ForesCompany HQ, the Info Center and finally ForesInn. He also started on the Foresne Light Rail, running from Chinatown to Lowland Circus. He also established Chinatown and the boundaries of a future City Hall on a peninsula southwest of the MRT station. He built the Mayor's House on Mayor's Island, and started work on ForesTower.

Expansions

Then Foresne began to spread out. West of Central, there was Wontridge Museum; North, Foresne General Hospital; Northwest, Postiensci. Foresne had a rapid growth.

The Epsilonian Republic

On 4 October 2019, when i____7d was building mansions on Postieninsula, ModernArt asked him if he wanted Foresne to be part of the Epsilonian Republic. He agreed and now Foresne is part of the Epsilonian Republic, as you can see on the top of this page.

Visitors

This is a list of visitors that have visited Foresne when i____7d is around.

Geography & Topology

Foresne is mainly located on a hilly forest biome. There are several hills, used for different purposes, and the highest ones can reach 31m above sea level. The district of Postiensci is special as it is mainly located on a plains biome (Postieninsula is located in the forest); however, it still has a lot of slopes. In the future, Foresne will be extended to an Extreme Hills biome in the north.

Foresne also has several lakes at the central area; for example, the Radiant Lakes in the south and the Postiensci Lakes in the north-east. These lakes have piers in them, making it possible to travel by boat across these lakes.

Flag

The flag of Foresne is coloured light blue, with a horizontal stripe of white in the middle and a symbol of a flying tree. The light blue represents peace. The white represents democracy, and the flying tree represents freedom. An example of the flag can be seen above the info center near SW6. The smallest size possible of the flag is 6×12.

The banner of Foresne is similar. It is a light blue banner with a vertical white stripe in the middle, and a horizontal green stripe in the middle, representing the flying tree, since trees can't be put on banners.

Districts

Foresne is divided into several districts, at follows:

  • Central
  • Wontridge
  • Radiant Hills
  • Postiensci
  • Shenmore

Future districts:

  • Drives are the smallest type of roads. They are 4 blocks wide with no divider or sidewalks.
