Production Update #7: Halfway!

The wheel keeps on turning. It took me a while to tally up all the production from the last couple weeks, but I’m happy to announce that I’m now past the halfway point in casting!

The new molds are already helping to speed things up, and now that the count of finished pieces is done I know just where to focus my efforts. I’ve broken down what’s done building by building, which you can see on this convenient infographical device below:

Some quick notes about the chart, and what it means…

– After the problems I had with the master parts for Tall High Gothic, I finally have some cast and I’m now putting the production molds together. This bar should be growing quickly.

– For some buildings (like the Small Fortified and Tall Corporate Tek) I’m only being held back by a shortage of one part, usually the doors. I’m making up some smaller molds with just the pieces I’m short on so I can finish the nearly-complete buildings.

– The Tenements and Tenements Upper Level use the same mold, so I’ve been counting all those pieces as part of the regular Tenements buildings so far – hence no bar for the Upper Level yet.

– I now have two full sets of molds just for Small and Medium Roofs, and they’re already making up the numbers for those pieces.

– I just finished the first production mold for Parapet Roofs on Monday. It casts seven roof pieces at a time, so I’ll be able to make some rapid progress here.

So, still lots of work ahead but I’m proud of how far we’ve come. I’ll be pushing hard to complete casting as soon as possible, and I’ll keep you updated as the bars grow further towards me getting to take a break :D

Thanks!
