What started out as merely a flicker in Nicserso's eye during a routine talk with Mr_Byzantine while hanging around in Evergreen, Steambolt is the brainchild of Nicserso and is in active construction with assistance from 12Magner05 and Mr_Byzantine as of February 17th 2023. Growth is foreseen to continue as the going is slow yet steady.
Steambolt is located about 6km to the north-northeast of Rotherhythe, which is itself roughly 5km north of Outpost. The town itself has a steampunk theme, hence the name Steambolt. As such, the architecture has a heavy emphasis on copper.
- Farming District
The Farming district is an area Northwest of Steambolt. It is what it’s called and has most of the farming essentials including Wheat, Carrots, Potatoes, Cactus and etc. The Farming District is currently still a work in progress
- Main Town
Main town is a temporary name for now but it is essentially what Steambolt is now. All the houses are inside the Main town which is where Nicserso, 12Magner05, Mr_Byzantine, Lez and Pazin_Gaming live. It will feature the soon to come Town hall and the soon to come Nether Portal Entrance area. The Main town will also feature the Observatory, the Bakery and Brewery and many more soon to come.
- Villager Lane
Villager Lane is also a Work in Progress. Villager Lane is located directly west of town and will feature villager apartments for different villagers. As of Right now, a couple of buildings reside there such as the Villager Breeder, Villager Trading Hall(Temporary) and a temporary Pumpkin farm.
- Section 2
Section 2(Temporary name) is the name of a big chunk of land across the river that is being cultivated. A Bridge is being constructed to bring access to this chunk of land. Roadwork has begun on this island and has brought access to AdmiralSmokes House and many plots of land.

Late Spring & Early Summer 2023
Throughout the second quarter of 2023, both Nicserso and 12Magner05 dropped off the face of the server due to scholarly studies becoming more intense. This period has seen Mr_Byzantine construct the Town Hall, OPC and USUV meeting halls, the storage transitional area being renovated into a proper room, and horse stables being rennovated. While the Redstone Expo railway is still in planning phases, the Outpost Towns Horse Road has seen signifigant progress, currently terminating 2/3rds of the way to Rotherhythe. Current and future plans for the town include a North Historic District, the Expo rail station, proper farm developments, waterfront renewal, church construction, a water port for trade, and a marina for pleasure boating. More ideas are bound to be thought up, while the ongoing labor shortage makes progress challenging.
