Shyguy- Gotcha already I'm gonna do a counties flag update after about 25? since thats where my counties will stop. Room included for updates like #3 and kinda this one too.
Zahrul3- I thank you for taking your time to read this and your insight but, one, i'm confused by your wording but if I get what you're saying, I almost lost the region messing with the config.bmp file and I don't want to restart and possibly deal with that so while I thank you for your insight I unfortunatly will not be taking your advice. Maybe i'll do a redo one day but not now. Because of that I had to go to my backup from 2 days before and ended up when berryford was at 7,000 and Stone City at 28,000. Got that upto about 125k now though.
Now as for the update, no Pacific Cove, just Stone Island. Pacific Cove may come in update 7. This update sort of is a spinoff of update 3. (i'm already doing a spinoff update )
Stone Island was settled in 1846 by James Young II of Cornwall who landed in the north of the isle and immidiatley built a home on the northside as did many other settlers who came with him as part of 4 ships and founded an establishment of 560 settlers. 5 outlook posts were built in the corners of the isle, a large fort and a farm were built on the isle. in the settlement was a saloon, a bank, a church and a courthouse.
Soon though tensions with the british homeland in the atlantic and the stones in the pacific heightened and on the dawn of the 6th august 1863 the british rose over the horizon and soon, the settlers remaining back at the settment heard the first shots of the battle of South Stone Island fired. Soon though, the british overpowered the Stoneish settlers and began burning some of the stoneish landmarks like the farm and the SW outpost. They also set fire to the local saloon and it caused a fire which burned 2 half blocks and killed 10 residents of the settlement in the Great Stoneish Fire of 1863.

After the Fire, the brits were in charge and they planned to keep it that way, but the stones didn't. In 1873, one stoneish man, Calvin Thomas, took it upon himself to take out the british and it epically back fired. with Mr. Thomas being taken prisinor by the British and tortured for 5 years before being executed in 1880. This angered the settlers and as a result they took up arms against the british and somehow after seven years of fighting, took the island for themselves. On 15th May 1887 at the West House, the british surrendered to the Stones and the Isle became independent.
