Welcome from NW Ohio. You were encouraged to join by a nice guy, even with those strange political opinions.
As for "playing in the sand", you can browse the threads and see that quite a few Cyburbians took that penchant for design into the house, grabbed some big sheets of paper from Mom and/or Dad, and developed "fake" paper cities.
For details, look to OAK CREEK or DE NOC.
Glad you are here. Don't put down that shovel.
