The City Matures.

When Darien Mason was sheriff of Steelhead, the slogan he used for Steelhead City was, "You go to Sigil to get shot, Caledon for tea, Steelhead City to get laid". This always bothered me. Made it seem like Steelhead City was good for one thing, and one thing only. Mind you, his heart was in for Steelhead to get visitors.


Alot has changed during that time. Steelhead has changed. Changed to the point that the bordello isn't depended on being our main source of lindens. In the six months that I was appointed sheriff and TotalLunar Eclipse and Tensai Hilra were hired as managers, visits to Steelhead have doubled than what they were before. On the second level of the Steelhead Hotel, is a picture of what Steelhead used to look like (this was after the Kokopelli was built after the art gallery was torn down). As you wander through Steelhead now, you'll see that it's changed greatly.


Very soon, the shops across from the hotel will have a new look, as will Melissa's Used Goods and Doc Wranglers. There will be a new town hall. The docks, I've heard, will be completely redone. Even Lighthouse Island will have a new look. Rent has also been doubled. Eventually, we're not going to be "The Cheapest Place To Live". The Old Steelhead City will be but a memory.


Soon, a new sim will rise from the depths of the ocean. Steelhead City will continue from where the road ends at my house, and we'll have "Steelhead Harbor" (may still be a working title, but I do like the title). Rent in this new sim will be more than Steelhead City's recently raised prices, I believe (and please don't quote me) that it'll be the same price on some of the earlier Caledon sims, or close to it.


We have always had the respect of Caledon (despite some communication errors that caused a few problems here and there), as well as a few other sims, too. The residents work together, acting as an actual bone fide community. Steelhead City has always been a place that has alot of potential, and now it's starting to show that potential.


Perhaps the slogan should be: "You go to Deadwood to get shot, Caledon for tea, Steelhead City to be with friends and family"

I love to slip away from my home in Caledon to visit Steelhead now and then, and every time that I have I have always been made to feel welcome there!
