I would like to respectfully request that the RA consider, as a matter of high priority at its next meeting on Saturday 10 May, how to adapt this bill so that we can move swiftly to design and purchase a new sim for the CDS once the elections are over with?Callipygian wrote:Currently on the books is:
CDSL 16-02 New Sim Competition Act
1. The Executive shall set aside funds to purchase a new sim but shall not purchase the sim until directed by the RA.
2. The New Sim shall be Bavarian-themed, as is Neufreistadt. There shall be a design competition for specific Sim design. Citizens who wish to submit a plan shall submit a plan to the RA. Such plans shall be submitted by March 31, 2012,
3. The RA shall then consider the plans and vote on them. The plan that receives the most support shall be implemented by the Executive, who shall purchase a Sim and coordinate with the New Guild for that purpose.
Passed 3 March 2012
While I recall some of the discussion about this, including it having a university I think, I have no idea if this competition was actually held, or if there are plans somewhere resulting from it. Since it specifies a theme RA would probably need to address this law, whether to amend or repeal it, before creating any new sim-purchase legislation or competitions to choose a theme.
The Bill, in my view, needs to address the date by which such plan should be submitted, whether the new sim is placed to the East or West of Neufreistadt and whether the Guild (which is not the same as 'the New Guild') should have a formal role in the process.
