In real life, all but one of California's eight Channel Islands are sparsely inhabited. Catalina, the most well-known, is home to about 3,700 people, most of whom live in the city of Avalon.

But I've often wondered what it would have been like if the islands had been more completely developed, heavily urbanized like the rest of the Southland...

The Channel Islands are a product of Southern California's generally insane geology. Fault lines dragging new land out of the sea... and that geologic mayhem is where I begin this story...

Would you be able to help us catch up after a bit of a shortfall?

We had a small shortfall last month. Your donation today would help us catch up for this month.

Make a Donation, Get a Gift!

We need to continue to raise enough money each month to pay for expenses which includes hardware, bandwidth, software licenses, support licenses and other necessary 3rd party costs.

By way of a "Thank You" gift, we'd like to send you our STEX Collector's DVD. It's some of the best buildings, lots, maps and mods collected for you over the years. Check out the STEX Collections for more info.

Each donation helps keep Simtropolis online, open and free!

Thank you for reading and enjoy the site!
