I thought islands were supposed to be relaxing…

Ahh… Margurita’s and sea-gulls… the cool, ocean breeze…  Sailboats….

Okay, we got the boats… 🙂

FINALLY Steelhead Port Harbor is HERE!  TotalLunar Eclipse and I have spent the good part of our week terraforming, cutting, primping, prodding, programming and swearing at Steelhead’s new island.  The Result: WOW.

THE single most intense sim setup ever… Beautiful docks made by our favorite elf, TotalLunar Eclipse, with a new distinct Maritime Steampunk-Gaslamp feel.  I’ve kept myself occupied getting all the rental-poles up to par, and working on a new Boat-Ferry!  Amazing little gadget, this ferry will be able to take you from Port Harbor to any of the three docks, to Harborside, and to Steelhead Main!  Also planned is a ‘tour’ mode that will be a leisurely jaunt around the sims with detailed info on landmarks and history.  I was looking at the code, and we may even get an airship ride out of this!

Alot of work (10+hours so far just programming the poles) but worth it and I hope you think so too… then I can get back to my narrative on what happened with Dogg food and all that money!

We should be opening the floodgates later today (Dec 1) to habitation, though tweaking and programming may take weeks.  This all rests on the pay-poles cooperating as they have been (knock on wood texture).

/me eyes the margurita… “soon.  soon.”

/dogg eyes the margurita… “hoboy…”
