I feel sorry for my human sitting miserably in bed being forced to sleep during clear sunny days. I am an embodiment of him so we are both of like mind, we are free and need to spread our wings. So in bed we think, mostly about Steelhead and its growth.
I had always felt that I had pushed Boomtown too quickly. Granted it took longer than Harborside to gain interest. I felt put out with its slow growth and respite, depressed unable to finish a building for worry about Boomtown and why the lack of interest. When word came from the higher ups that pricing was to drop we decided to wait. I had thought that waiting would agitate some of those who have paid for their land... I was met with people backing my decision.
'Steelhead is worth the wait.'
That sentence alone brought a swell in me and I am grateful to be in the presence of such people. In that short time from when we announced our decision to wait to today we have almost filled the town entirely. My worries have subsided and I am certain that those coming into Steelhead will fit nicely into our small town... which may not be so small anymore.
Each town is unique. Steelhead Main is filled with beautiful civic buildings and shops and Embassies of other lands. Harborside is a lush residential community of jaeger's librarians and fun witty people with bridges and water. Boomtown will be a mining community mostly of shops and tunnels...
In the future I have planned Port Harbor which will be heavy industrial ship docks for international trading and a sim of water for ships to battle... but I've planned our expansions carefully. Each town will have something unique to it, something its residents will be proud to call their own.
So we sit here slightly delusional for the medication rambling to ourselves. I am quite proud of our town, our people and silly way of life. It may be just a game, but to me its work and study. I am quite content in the situation I have put myself in, in the place I am living and the people I have surrounded myself with. When I had Harborside drawn out, someone asked how many sims I would have. I threw out a number, I want 15... oddly enough... I may get that many.
