Update 1
Natural Beauty
1851

A few undaunted explorers had mapped bits and pieces of the surrounding terrain in the past, but by and large the terrain has been untouched by man.

The first description of the area in writing was by a man in the Hudson’s Bay Company. From a journal entry dated August 5, 1833. “The bay is wide and large, protected to the west by a large Island, and framed to the east by a towering mountain.”

“A number of streams feed the main river, which empties into the bay.”

“Tide pools and rocky beaches are everywhere to be seen, providing ample supplies of fish, clams, crabs and other sea life.”

“Beyond the beaches lie forests with enough timber to supply all the navies of the world.”

“The south side of the river appears to be inhabited by a tribe of Indians, of whom we saw a party along the coast.”

With little knowledge about their surroundings, and completely cut off from civilization, the party of 24 American pioneers set out to build a new life. With only the sweat of hard labor and their quick wits to rely on, destiny was in their hands.

Haha, thanks @CT14.  It's kind of strange to go back through the first entry - I wasn't really sure what I was getting myself into.  I do remember spending days learning how to make my first MMP (the Indian huts, the white tents and large rowing boats - man, those look a tad out of scale).  I would probably never have gotten them to work without the great helpers over at SimPeg (RIP).  @paeng , @blunder and the others were a wealth of information and way to willing to help a newbie like me out.  The MMP'd stream turned out really well - even better than I was expecting.  I definitely remember studying Blunder's tutorial on creating a mountain stream... I wish I remember the name of the tutorial series he did, but unfortunately it was all lost in the SimPeg explosion.  :cry:

I'll try and make some comments here and there as I go back through and get New SorGun back up and running.  :yes:

@SimCoug you mean: ...

Totally!  I had that bookmarked at SimPeg... I guess I should have realized you had it over here too.  Glad to know that there is a backup of sorts :)
