Sokiland is the first city founded and built by John Mayor, then named Buga, in the Les Cités Area in the southernmost region of Greenmeadows. The city still remains at its location in the exact shape it had when left by its inhabitants and is now a ghost town. Sokiland has been built in parallel with 4 other towns in 2001 that are now composing the Les Cités Historic Area. It is the largest and densest city of the territory.

Sokiland's signage, texts and their residents as well were entirely bilingual in French and English.

History

Archives - Original handmade map of Sokiland from 2001.

In 2001, when Buga just arrived in AW as a tourist from LeVillage3d, him and a small group of people founded a small community of towns, La Communauté des Cités, in a remote area of Alphaworld. This community was composed of Sokiland founded by Buga, Aftercity founded by Afterlife, Sunnydale then renamed Suncity founded by Roi Niko, 65 founded by Spectrum 65 and Sandshine founded by Garfield 1. As most of the group was composed of french canadians, most towns of the community made their indications in french while Sokiland had a more bilingual system.

Sokiland and most of its neighboring towns kept a high level of activity until the end of summer of 2001, Sokiland remained relatively, but moderatly, active until December, 2001. From that period, all towns of the community became completely ghost towns. In 2002, Buga then renamed Nyx made a few come back visits while he was then progressing in Daliaxy in attempt to give the city some more improvements and create some links between Sokiland and his then new city but gave up after a few visits. The city had been completely inactive since.

Preservation Plan Fall 2009

Sokiland in 2001

Nyxboy had studied many possibilities to preserve and save the city that remained unprotected since its very begining, as all its structures were build as a tourist, but all attempts failed until then.

In 2003, a first demand to the AWHS was sent but has been refused as the city wasn't considered old enough. Since the organization became defunct Nyxboy had to look for other options.

In August 2009, Nyxboy started to study more intensivly to find solutions to preserve a tourist built city that has, until then, survived 8 years without any vandalism, thanks to its remote location.

In september, the city has been examinated in order to collect the original objects building dates throughout the area. The foundation of Sokiland has been determined to be May 5th 2001.

On November 18th 2009 at 19h00pm, the city of Sokiland has been officially transferred under Nyxboy's citizenship with the expertise of Karten and one of his bot, and thus finally became protected. The new dates displayed on the entire site is now identified as Wed. Nov. 18, 2009.

During the same day, Nyxboy's identified Sokiland as a historical site and started to enhance the area for future visitors. A highway circuit, Les Cités Beltway, has been built around the main part of the community surrounding the city to give the area simplier connections to unify more the towns togheter since freeways, large roads and boulevards doesn't exists in the community and as many towns of the area have most of their local streets not coinciding with those of the next town. Also Les cités highway connects the beltway to the major Alphaworld highway network. What first was a remote and isolated developed zone is now well linked to the rest of the world.
