SINCLAIR'S FOUNDRY: A SONG OF SURVIVAL AND AUTOMATION

Rejectland had come to its third set of Postcards, posted during the cycles of 1.5 and 1.6, when I hatched a plan for a new world. The rule in Rejectland whereby everything was to be as "organic" as possible, with everything required grown, harvested, mined and built by hand, was about to be loosened anyway, but in this new world it would be abandoned altogether, in favour of automation. And not just that, anything which could be automated almost certainly would be.

This time I've written a far lengthier explanatory introduction, for those of you who want to read it, which details how and why I decided to do what I was about to do, some tests as far back as the 1.5 cycle, the search for a decent seed, how the theme was developed, and so on.

Whereas Postcards from Rejectland usually presenting several projects each time, Sinclair's Foundry showcases one page per project, with the newest at the top of the page. Some projects are very short, some are... not - and the base project is so huge it has had to be kept outside the official numbering system as it included two of the numbered projects inside its timeline.

All you need to know about this world now, other than its ethos of automation, is that it is themed around Sinclair computers and games, most notably the ZX Spectrum in all its various iterations, though knowledge of its predecessors, the ZX81 and ZX80, would be useful. The seed for this world is J254OBA, or, strictly numerically, -1562173017.
