Welcome to Mars
Greetings adventurer! You've landed on Mars, the red planet, just in time to join the colonization effort! The Martians and Colonists are warm and friendly people, and are always happy to welcome new friends!
If you'd like to take a tour around the planet before deciding to settle here, we recommend you board planes from the Orbiting Space Station (0n 953w 30.6a). They'll take you to seven spaceports, serving Mars' seven regions. Check in at the Mars Travel Bureau desk in the spaceports for a list of tours on the regional railroads. (If you're already at GZ, take a local tour departing from the Mars Travel Bureau (31s 6e 270), then hop on the train to Mt Olympus.)
Valles Marineris Spaceport 30s 855e 9a
Serpentis Spaceport 251s 993w 6a
Aeria Spaceport 305n 994w 6a
Tyrrhenum Spaceport 123s 994w 6a
Elysium Spaceport 305n 504w 11a
Cimmerium Spaceport 222s 325w 5a

If you need help learning how to build, we recommend you visit AWSchool for a quick lesson or self-guided tutorial. Also, Please limit land claiming in this world to areas less than 100 by 100 cells! Thanks! :)
