LIU Atlas - Colluvio
There are billions of stars, millions of planets, but there is only one man, Terrance McDoogal. Welcome to LIU Atlas.
About this creation
LIU Atlas - Colluvio


The Ludgonian Industrial Union's galaxy contains billions of stars and billions of planets. Unfortunately, most residents of the LIU could only name a handful of these worlds. In order to improve astronomy grades across the LIU, LIU TV2 has started a new program called LIU Atlas. Follow our host, Terrance McDoogal, as he takes you on a tour across the LIU and some of its more obscure worlds.


Doog: "Welcome folks to TV2's newest program, LIU Atlas. I'm your host, Terrance McDoogal, feel free to call me Doog. This week, I'm here to tell you about a relatively unknown planet, Colluvio. Although unknown, this Mining World is one of the most important planets in the LIU. As you can see from the simulation to my right, Colluvio is more or less a giant chunk of rock, but this rock contains some of the most valuable mineral compounds in the entire galaxy. Let's visit Colluvio and take a closer look."




Doog: "As we approach Colluvio, we come across one of several hundred mining transports. These massive ships are constantly visiting Colluvio, shipping its treasures to worlds all across the LIU galaxy."




Doog: "There are 52 mining cities on Colluvio, and we've been granted access to City #21. Other than this small tunnel jutting out from the mountain side, there are no signs of life for miles. Where is this city? Why it's underground, of course."




Doog: "As I wait for my guide, I can't help but to notice how dark it is inside the tunnels. And that makes me wonder... why can't we show you some tropical Vacation World or maybe the Red Light District. Why does it always have to be these dark, musty places. There's a reason no one has heard of this place."




Doog: "Ahh, here's my guide at last. Hi, I'm Terrance McDoogal, you can call me Doog."
Host: "Welcome Doog. I'm Flarblast Siplecoup. You can call me Flarblast Siplecoup."
Doog: "Uh, nice to meet you Fartblaster Sippy Cup."
Host: "That's Flarblast Siplecoup."




Doog: "Uh, yeah, that's what I meant. Hey! Where are you going? Can't we talk before we go inside?"
Host: "It has been many years since my skin has felt the sun. I'm afraid I've gone and got burned already. Please let's head inside."
Doog: "You got sunburned in twenty seconds? Well, I guess you are looking rather pale."




Host: "All of us here at Colluvio look this way. We seldom get out to see the sun. We prefer the comforts of the "dark and musty" mine, as you said."
Doog: "Oh, you heard that? I was just... uh.. well, look at this city! It sure is great!"
Host: "We have yet to arrive at the city. This is just the tunnel entrance. We still have a long journey to City #21."




Host: "City #21 is several miles deeper into the mountain. This suspended monorail system will take us there."
Doog: "It looks fun Flakpack. Let's head out"




Host: "That's Flarblast, Flarblast Siplecoup."
Doog: "No thanks, Flarblast Siplecoup gives me gas."
Host: "I'm not offering you food. That's my name."
Doog: "Ha, oh yeah, uh, its just a...little joke us inner galaxy people say... uh, well let's go."




Doog: "After a fifteen minute ride through the mountain, the monorail gives way and me and Flar.., me and my guide, are left at what appears to be a dead end. Are we there yet?"
Host: "Almost, all that is left now is the descent."




Doog: "The descent?"
Host: "Yes, this elevator will take us down another couple miles. City #21 awaits us at the bottom."




Doog: "Is this elevator safe?"
Host: "Yes Doog, the LIU Elevator Inspector General has given this elevator his stamp of approval."
Doog: "Uh, the LIU disbanded that position like 40 years ago, something to do with that park duck scandal."
Host: "Well, I assure you, it is quite safe. Let us descend."




Doog: "Well folks, we're thirty minutes into the show and we are finally at City #21. For the three viewers out there that are still awake and present, thanks for sticking with us. Now, Fastpass Steeplechase, where are we?"
Host: "My name is... oh forget it. We are now in City #21. If you follow me, I'll take you to the main chamber."




Doog: "I can't help but to notice these strange fans built into the walls. Can you tell us about them?"
Host: "Yes Doog, these fans are part of City #21's ventilation system. These fans are connected to small tunnels that extend all the way to the surface. They pull fresh air into the mine."
Doog: "Cool. Get it? Haha. Why aren't you laughing?"
Host: "It must be that inner galaxy humor you were talking about..."




Doog: "As I we arrive at the main chamber, I am slightly taken back. I couldn't have imagined that an underground city on a mining world could be so beautiful. I have to admit, I'm impressed Flarelast."
Host: "Thanks Doog. This is the main chamber. It contains the housing for the forty eight residents of City #21."




Doog: "There's only forty eight of you here?"
Host: "Yes Doog. Most of the mining operation is automated. We are only here to complete repairs and insure quality control."
Doog: "Are all fifty-two cities like this?"
Host: "More or less. The population is dependent on the size of the mine below. We have a rather strong concentration of mineral below us and we have one of the larger populations."




Doog: "Speaking of minerals, what exactly do you guys mine here?"
Host: "Well Doog, just below us is a massive underground sea. However, this sea is not made up of water. It's made up of a rare liquid mineral called Quag."
Doog: "Quag?"
Host: "Yes Doog, Quag. It's used as a fertilizer on all of the LIU's Super Farms. Production on these farms had risen ten fold since they started using this rare Quag fertilizer."




Doog: "How do you mine a liquid?"
Host: "Well Doog, this is where it all starts. Small holes are cut into the rock exposing the sea below. Massive pumps, like this one, pump out the liquid Quag."




Host: "The Quag isn't very stable in this state so it most be processed before it can be shipped out. If you follow me, I'll show you some of the processing areas."
Doog: "Sounds fun."




Host: "The pump carries the Quag to this room where it is pumped out onto a small assembly line. Here, robots turn the raw Quag into processed Quag."




Host: "Heat is applied to remove any impurities. A mixing robot then stirs the Quag to insure that it's viscosity is consistent."




Host: "After it is processed, it is pumped into these large drying tanks. When processed Quag is allowed to sit, it slowly becomes a solid. This takes a long amount of time, and we have to have thousands of these drying tanks."




Host: "As you can see below, two of our quality control engineers are cleaning tank #3. If any impurities get into these drying tanks, they stop the Quag from solidifying."




Host: "The hardened Quag is then sent down another conveyor belt were is cut up into little squares."




Host: "These squares of Quag then fall down a small chute into an automatic scale."





Host: "When the weight reaches the predetermined amount, the scale drops the squared Quag into a mining cart below. These carts take the Quag to one Colluvio's central shipping platforms. Cities #20-30 share one central shipping platform."
Doog: "Wow, Flabsack, that's pretty efficient. I'd love to hear more...(mumble)yeah right, but time's running out. Thanks for showing us Colluvio."
Host: "It was my pleasure... (mumble) yeah right... Terrance McDoogal."




Doog: "Well folks, although Colluvio doesn't get mentioned very often, the planet is actually quite important. Without its supply of Quag, the Super Farms wouldn't be able to produce enough food to feed the galaxy. So next time you stop at the supermarket, remember Colluvio and its underground seas of Quag. Thanks for joining us. Hopefully, you learned a thing or two."






Note: Don't fret, Doog will be back from time to time to show you some more obscure LIU Worlds. Next up, the World of Solus.

Ok, at last I decided to watch every episode of LIU Atlas... It was about time! Great (first) one!

Atlas is easily my favourite of all MOCpages things, so it's only just that I get around to re-reading them. The spectacular builds are highlighted by hilarious commentary, and make each episode truly memorable. Hopefully you'll get around to producing more of these, I've missed them even with all the quality MOCs others have been making. Great work!

It looks great! I have only one suggestion and that is that you should 2 colors of light grey. The new grey for the floor and the old grey for the rocks. Nice job!

D: This is AWESOME. Great use of both new and old pieces, on the monorail I think I saw the circular half of a 2x2 turntable, am I right? And you had a perfectly backed up excuse to use fleshy and yellow skin. The rock formations, production line robots, and SO MANY DANG BLUE PIECES make an awe-inspiring MOC. Brilliant, sir :)

Nice way to kick off what has potential to be a FANTASTIC series - great idea for ongoing creations. Meanwhile, this one was terrific. Love the underground work, and all of the machinery (looks like you put a lot of time into the build). Thanks for the tour (yeah right)!

My favorite parts were the large city facade and the processing equipment. You did a great job melding the rough rock and smooth metal walls together in the tunnel and city area as well. Nice work!

Well, I enjoyed the trip down mining lane. It really looks believable and that's a good thing. I especially like those two robots whose job it is to blow flame and mix. Then there is the face in the upper left of that picture. That's funny. Story was fun. Nice pics. thanks for the laugh. see ya. garth

I love so much of this, and i've been waiting for it too. The lift, the pumping, the writing, the mispronounced name lol. All The builds themselves are great as well as all the rock formations :) Even the planet has an LIU'ness to it lol. Am now waiting patiently for Solus...

Well it's not white... but I guess we'll let that one slide for now. I'm lovin' the "peachies" as albinos idea. For some reason, the monorail scene made me think of a ride at Disneyworld. The amount of detail in all the scenes was just amazing. This was well worth the wait your highness. ~ Chris.
