Ok, I only read the first two pages of comments, there's way too much to read right now, I will go through the rest in a bit, but I thought I would
just drop in my two cents as well, in case it hasn't been mentioned.
Those grids look like plantations of some sort, the reason I am saying this, is if you look further, you find where it's more "developed" I wouldn't
call it developed so much, as the structures only seem to be little box type of places. But all around them, inside these grids, are these neat
little rows of greenery, some seem to be more grown than others the closer you move towards a coast. So it really seems that they are spreading these
"plantations" deeper inland. Now if this is correct, then these anomalies (not domes they definitely go into the ground not out) must have something
to do with water, I don't see how though and I don't understand why then they are not on the grids closer to the coastal area (if it's not a coast, I
apologize, I didn't zoom out too much I just went until I found a large coastal area), maybe they're hidden now, like covered by these box like
structures in the plantations? Just a thought, could be off.
In these grids it definitely looks like plantations planted in neat little rows. Here where we are, maybe over there too, in the areas surrounding
the paper-factory, they have these plantations where the pine trees grow in rows exactly like in those grids, and you also get them in different sizes
(not randomly, in batches of rows like in the grids) I guess from above they would look like grids too. In which case having roads in grids makes
perfect sense. If the roads were meant to go directly from one of these anomalies to the other, then grids would be highly inefficient, but if they
were meant to go around plantations then it is effective, driving through the plantations would not be a good idea and destructive.
So I would say, these grids are roads that are going around where future plantations are to come, what exactly the purpose of these strange structures
are, I don't know, but if it's to be surrounded by plantations in the future, then it would make sense that it's for water. Coastal salt water is not
exactly ideal for plantation growth and what exactly the purpose of the plantations are I couldn't say either, could be like someone else mentioned
maybe they're just trying to change the landscape of the desert, it all depends of course on what exactly the plants are in the plantation. All I
know is it's green, therefore it could be dope for all we know
, just kidding, I don't seriously think that, but seriously it depends on what the
plants are that they are planting what these plantations would be for. It could be like a caboots (I my word I don't know how to spell that lol) of
some sort, for food, maybe. I can't zoom in sufficiently to be able to make out what type of plants they are growing there.
Anyway, that's what I think.
P.S. Could be that the plantations are being grown to hide these strange structures too, I guess. But I must go now, I'll look into the rest of the
thread and the subject matter a bit more later.
Seems I don't have to look into this any further, between civpop and Flighty your questions have been answered, not everything is sinister, this is
about preserving the environment, as I suspected. It's about the plantations, not the structures, the structures is just an aid to it or part of
