Miu Wan, is a city founded by HarborRandom852. It is located in the northern areas of the New World specifically in Ward 9. It is the capital of the Republic of Miu Wan located in Miu Wan Capital District.

History

The town of Miu Wan as founded by HarborRandom852 on May 12th 2020. Harbor had chosen that location in hopes that the Arctic Line would expand there, sadly for him, it went the other way. The terrain was fairly flat near the coasts with a few small hills to the west and north and larger hills to the south. The first area in the town that was built soon became known as Smithfield.

Mercury203 Shrine Discovery

On May 14th 2020, HarborRandom852 found a shrine next to his town dedicated to Mercury. It was covered in fire and "blood". With Echohue's blessing, LKRandom was allowed to destroy the shrine alongside EliteNeon Months later, SilverBubble revealed that it was him that built the shrine.

June 4th Vigil

The first recorded Tianamen Square Massacre vigil on the MRT Server was held in Miu Wan at around 9pm UTC+8. As the vigil had technically been cancelled in Hong Kong that year, Harbor decided to hold a vigil on the server in which 2 people attended. Two memorials dedicated to those that died in the massacre were set up.

Return

As Harbor was mostly inactive on the server from June to October, construction on Miu Wan went dormant until Harbor returned in Late October. Harbor set his eyes on one goal: get Miu Wan to Mayor which was achieved on December 25th 2020. Harbor also invited some of his friends from his community: Hongkongggag to partake in a Christmas Dinner alongside some from the server.

On December 27th 2020, HydroLime formally launched linking the town to St. Helena. It was the first transport connection to the town. HydroLime would also expand to more destinations namely New Singapore and Shahai. More transport connections also came to the town via other ferry companies. In January, after a successful IAT, the end terminus and ferry pier of the Lanark-Laclede Express was incorporated into Miu Wan and expansion began to head west and south with the districts of Mortes, Freezington and Wong Kiu being founded.

Furthermore, a railway station was built in Choi Kok although as of April 2021, no railways serve it yet.

Deputy Mayor Election

An election for Deputy Mayor was held with 8 candidates 2 of them being independents in February of 2021. AlphaDS: an independent candidate, won the election by a landslide and was sworn in on February 15th 2021 replacing mi_aquamarine.

Huge Growth

Miu Wan began to rapidly and aggressively expand in Q1 of 2021, more buildings were constructed and areas were filled in. Among these was the Miu Wan MTR which saw rapid construction in early March-late April 2021 expanding from just 1 line with 5 stations to 4 lines with 10 stations. Harbor also attempted to go for Senator which he failed due to a slim majority of 2-3 voting against Miu Wan's promotion.

The B988 also opened during this time making it Miu Wan's first road connection as well as Starling Bay Station of RaiLinQ. An AquaLinQ route was also opened to Seoland.

The Cadnium-Shengmiao Incidents

Taking inspiration from Westbeach, Harbor decided to lease a piece of land to Oshawott_12 as an enclave of the Ottia Islands: Cadnium, mi_aquamarine also got an enclave that being Shengmiao. However, Osha and Harbor argued over the border wall which led to both receiving a L1 warning. Originally, Osha planned to move and regen the area with AlphaDS taking the land, Osha then changed his mind and Cadnium remained.

Looming over their minds and towns however, was USSRGrad, an abandoned Soviet-style town filled with Armor stands with a large wall. As such, Harbor decided to IAT it in hopes of expanding it and making USSRGrad a Bed Town for Miu Wan. This was when Harbor began to turn Miu Wan into a "state" similar to the Republic of Northern Peninsula. Around this time, Harbor also submitted a second application for Senator. Unfortunately, Cadnium, Shengmiao and the Fui Sha District of Miu Wan violated the 300 block rule which led to L2 warnings to Osha and Harbor (they recieved a 3 day ban), a void declaration of Miu Wan's senator application and the removal of the USSRGrad IAT from the April GSM. This ban lasted from April 10th 2021 to April 13th 2021.

Glitched Chunk

A glitched chunk was discovered on May 17th 2021 in Mortes that was dragging the Tps down, Harbor was building a road there but he had to abandon construction soon after. Luckily, it was soon discovered that it fixed by its own though many have suggested it was simply the server acting up. This further emphasized the fact that the area was the most "cursed" on the MRT.

However, the glitched chunk returned though it’s effects have been less severe. It disappears periodically.

Post-Senator Promotion

On May 24th 2021, Miu Wan finally was promoted to Senator. Almost immediately, Harbor began construction on Miu Wan Kau Heung Airport which despite its name, was still a Senator airfield. The initial airfield took 3 hours to complete though later on during the day, features such as a railway station, franchises and a control tower were added. The first flight from the airfield was a Michigana flight to Oparia.

Harbor began to focus on the Luk Hom area hoping to turn it into a proper CBD. Around the same time, 4 towns were founded within the Republic of Miu Wan by other players. Furthermore, on May 31st, the Miu Wan Grand Prix was held in the city.

Getting To and From

The main point of entry, at least at the moment, is the B988 highway linking Miu Wan from the A92. More highways are being planned and considered for future towns in the Republic of Miu Wan.

Historically, most people have entered Miu Wan using the Miu Wan Ferry Terminal. The Ferry Terminal has connections to New Singapore, Shahai, St. Helena, the Ottia Islands, Seolho and Ville. The ferry terminal currently has space for at least 3 more destinations.

Miu Wan also has connections to Seoland and Cape Cambridge via the Seaplane Terminal to the North, near it is a Cruise Wharf that plans to serve Cruise ships. Currently, the Azalea Arctic is docked, it is a part of the cruise from Wenyanga to Dogwood and back via Cape Cambridge and Miu Wan.

RaiLinQ also has a connection in Miu Wan linking it to cities such as PMW City and Wazamawazi at Starling Bay. To the northwest, the rail portion of the Lanark-Laclede Express terminates and transfers to the ferry pier in Mortes. AquaLinQ also has a connection at Starling Bay going to Seoland though it arrives at a different port than the Seaplane.

Miu Wan also has 2 Helicopter connections. One of them connecting Miu Wan to Dogwood and Bristol, the other connecting it to Savage City, Shenghua, Cape Cambridge, Castilion and Lanatam. There is also a bus terminal to the south near Luk Hom which currently has two bus services to Lazure and Westbeach. There may also be a connection to Central City.

There is a railway station in Choi Kok named Miu Wan Station but no railways serve it. There is also another station in Luk Hom that is larger. A railway is also being planned and built to connect Miu Wan to Winterville and Silverville.

BluRail also plans to serve Miu Wan with 2 stations: Miu Wan South which will most likely be located near the under construction Miu Wan South Station and Miu Wan North, which may link up to Miu Wan Station.

Miu Wan currently has 1 airfield: Miu Wan Kau Heung Airport which opened shortly after Miu Wan got Senator.
