It’s hard to believe that I have been running SGE for nearly 8 whole years. Soooo many memories and good times on this server! One of the most memorable was building our beloved 16x worldwide railway over the course of the first 6 months from April to October 2014.
In those days we didn’t have protection signs! Instead we had a lot of active admins who would enforce the no stealing rails rule. It worked very well.
But even now with protection signs, we haven’t protected the entire railway. Periodically, I make a tour and do some repairs. My last tour resulted in only having to patch up less than 50 rail tracks. Not bad for a world with over 250,000 tracks!
Anyway, I found a youtube video made in May 2014 by Red Eagle when SGE was only 6 weeks old. I am amazed at how much we built in that short time. The railway by then was already epic and gaining attention among the BH community.
Today, SGE’s railway remains one of the wonders of the BH world and no 16x world to date has ever matched it. I keep expecting some server to do it, but I suspect that as the game’s popularity wanes, that may never happen.
Well, here is the link to RedEagle’s video.
Enjoy this bit of nostalgia from the very early days of SGE!
