Alert.png Thunderbird is currently in the process of overhauling all elevators citywide.
This is to upgrade all current EasyElevators to the latest Lift technology installed on the server, so certain elevators may be out of service at this time. Please note: if the EasyElevator plugin no longer works, almost all buildings with more than one floor and TTC subway stations will be inaccessible as elevators are the only way to access them. We apologize for any inconvenience and will strive to complete the work as soon as possible. See the Elevator Overhaul Program section for more details.

About Thunderbird

Thunderbird was founded by decorminecraft on Gamma server opening day (October 4, 2014). Thunderbird is full of elevators, as decorminecraft likes making them a lot. Many staff members know that, like Hntredtie, for example. Thunderbird is currently at the Governor rank, as decorminecraft is ranked currently. Thunderbird is a member of the Eastern Association of Serendipity Towns (aka EAST). It even supplies the RedGrocer store with some fresh fish and chicken!

Districts

Old Town District

When decorminecraft started to begin building Thunderbird, he started with this district. The area was almost all all walking pathways and buildings back in October 2014. There are 3 roads in this district. The area is around  F17  Thunderbird station. Notable buildings are located here:

  • City Hall (Old)
  • DElevator Company main headquarters
  • 1 Yonge Street (a tall condominium building near the southeast of the city)
  • Thunderbird RegionalConnect station

Transit District

This district is in the west area of the city. It is still developing. The Thunderbird Bus terminal is in this district, as well as:

  • the Thunderbird Officials Office Tower
  • Thunderbird Public Library
  • Thunderbird Convention Centre (and TTC (metro) station)
  • Office building (and TTC (metro) station)
  • Kalmar Fried Chicken store (1st new world store to open)

The Thunderbird Transit Centre is half in this district and half on the New City District, which you'll read about next.

Note that the Old Town District and the Transit District are separated by a walkway named Red Tie St, named after Deputy Mayor hntredtie.

New City District

This district is located around the  F16  Thunderbird West station area and planned to have several roads and look more urban, so this is one of the reasons why we are expanding towards  F16  station and all around it. The district is divided up into two parts: North and South New City Districts. Some buildings are planned to be or already in this district:

  • The Thunderbird Eaton Centre (spoofed after the Toronto Eaton Centre)
  • New City Hall
  • Thunderbird Marina
  • Thunderbird's future epic landmark: RegionalConnect Basketball Arena, home of the Thunderbirds.

District of Education--planned

This district is planned to be located below the Old Town District and beside the South New City District. It plans to have a school (or an elementary and secondary school), a larger reference library, and potential other buildings.

Sports District

This district is the newest district to be planned. If you look on the MRT dynmap, northeast of  F16  is a piece of land shaped like a dog's head! This area plans to have the future RegionalConnect Arena (Basketball). Currently, DeTennis Park (named after Councillor Detroit Kitteh) and the RedGrocer store are located in the district.

Airport District

The airport district is a newly established district (opened early 2019) located on the northeast corner of Thunderbird (See the MRT Dynmap). See Thunderbird International Airport for more information pertaining to the airport.

City Transit & Transit Connections

Thunderbird has a transit system called "Thunderbird Transit Commission", a spoofed name of the Toronto Transit Commission. Both have "TTC" as abbreviations. The TTC uses a Cyan-Like automation system (still made by decorminecraft). Thunderbird is connected to many different towns and cities, including Appleton, with Deputy Mayor hntredtie as its mayor. The busiest RegionalConnect station is Thunderbird's very own station! The lines serving Thunderbird also connect to many other towns. They are Appleton (obviously), Melrose, Sealane, Vermilion, Ilirea, Wazamawazi, Elecna Bay, and so much more! The station is under construction and looks awesome! Thunderbird will also have a ConnectEAST rail connection in the foreseeable future.

See the TTC page for more information, including stations, service advisories and planned projects.

Thunderbird Transit Centre

The Thunderbird Transit Centre is an ongoing project to fit in the ConnectEAST station and RegionalConnect system provider bays. It has 4 parts: the Bus Terminal, the future Thunderbird Marina, the ConnectEAST station, and the RegionalConnect station. We know, this also has the abbreviation "TTC." TTC only stands for the Thunderbird Transit Commission and the Toronto Transit Commission. Just call it by its full name.

ConnectEAST station (Main Part of the Transit Centre)

The Thunderbird ConnectEAST station is nearing completion in terms of exterior construction. The  ConnectEAST  and the  ConnectEAST  lines will serve this station. All TTC lines (except the  P  and  O  lines) connect here. Separate rail connections will be serviced here.
