Foresne is a town in the south of the New World founded by i____7d on 10 September 2019. It is known for its famous sweet apple juice.

Pronunciation & Name

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

Foresne means "Forest Demesne".

Directions

Several methods:

1. Take the Zephyr Line Southern Terminus warp to ZS47/S0. Then take the Southern Line west.

2. Take the Zephyr Line all the way to ZS47/S0, if you don't want to waste 10¢. Then take the Southern Line west.

3. In the future, you can enter Foresne via Foresne Liveray. For more info look under the "Warp Rail" section in "Connections".

4. If i____7d is around, and if he is willing to return to Foresne (if he is somewhere else), he can teleport back to Foresne and you can tpa to him. (It's called a taxi.)

5. Fly there.

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.

The Epsilon Awards

Somewhere in late October 2019, Fiork777 asked if Foresne could host the Epsilon Awards. i____7d agreed, so to facilitate this, he delayed the building of Foresne Liveray railway station and started work on the Flying Tree Square, the Confusion Highlands Gondola, and the light rail lines leading up to Postieninsula East station.

Visitors

This is a list of visitors that have visited Foresne when i____7d or PeacemakerX5 is around.

Geography & Topology

Land

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. The Postiensci Botanic Gardens and Nature Reserve north of Postiensci is in a flower forest where the hills can go higher than 31m. In the future, Foresne will be extended to an Extreme Hills biome in the north, where Eaukoi will be; however, it has already covered the extreme hills biome in the east: Confusion Highlands is at the northeast of Postiensci.

Foresne follows this altitude system: (refer to y-coord)

  • 60-65: Lower Lowlands - banks around the lakes usually are this low.
  • 66-70: Upper Lowlands - found all over the place.
  • 71-75: Lower Midlands - usually plains and meadows.
  • 76-80: Upper Midlands - usually meadows and some lower hills.
  • 81-90: Lower Highlands - usually hills.
  • 91-100: Upper Highlands - some hills. The highest ones in the forest usually reach 94.
  • 100-150: Extreme Highlands - mountains biome.

Lakes

Foresne also has several lakes, most of hem are less than 3m deep. at the central area; for example, the Radiant Lakes in the south and the Postiensci Lakes in the north-east. Some of these lakes have piers in them, making it possible to travel by boat across these lakes.

Below is a list of them.

  • Foresne River
  • Postiensci River

Islands

Inside some of these lakes and rivers there may be some islands. They are usually small, seldom big enough to house buildings.

Types of Islands

  • An Islet is an island smaller than an Island but is able to fit a 3×3 square within the island.
  • A Rock is any smaller islet.

Weather

As Foresne is located far south in the Southern hemisphere with cold breezes from the tundra north of Foresne, Foresne experiences around 20-25°C during the summers and 0-5°C during the winters in the plains and forest biomes. In the extreme hills, since it is always overlayed with snow, it experiences -5-0°C in the summer and -25--20°C in the winter. The Highlands in the forest biomes reach 15-20°C in the summer and 0-5°C in the winter.

Flag

Foresne's 3*5 flag and banner at City Hall.

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.

A more compact version (3×5) can be found in City Hall. The light blue and white are in the same pattern, just that there is a spot of brown in the middle center and the lighter and darker colours of the tree are on the top and bottom center respectively, forming a vertical stripe representing a tree.

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
  • Confusion Highlands
  • Liveray

Landmark

The landmark of Foresne is the Flying Tree Square. It is a slab of stone and andesite with a flying tree at the front of the square. Seats are placed facing the tree. The tree represents freedom, like in the flag. Also, this idea sparked when i____7d was dreaming at night about a platform in the mountains for observatory and it was built as this square, which could mean that in Foresne, your dreams come true. The square can be used for speeches and events, where the flying tree is the stage. There are shops below the square.

In December, this place will be used for the Epsilon Awards.

Roads

Types of Roads

  • Boulevards are large roads, with 2 lanes in both directions and sidewalks. They usually go through busy places in districts and serve as a 'mini-highway'. (East-West Blvd)

They can go through places that Boulevards are too big for. (Mayor's Lake Av) Streets are shorter than Avenues and they usually branch off them. (Postieninsula St branching off Postieninsula Av)
  • Drives are the smallest type of roads. They are 4 blocks wide with no divider or sidewalks. These type of roads are meant to either go through places that are too small for bigger roads (SW6 Pond Drive), or to serve a part of a land that is not covered by that bigger road (Mayor's Lake-Chinatown Drive).
