CoLAThe CCS Network has grown huge over the years. A lot of the people that enjoy the game we created back in 2006 are very substantial parts of what CCS has become and what they bring to the experience with their own additions and interpretations of the game has been fresh and humbles me with every sim that does something new and interesting with the game.

But CoLA itself, its my special baby. Its a game idea I've been dreaming of since 1999 or so so well over a decade and over five years before I found a place to plant the seed of that idea where it would grow. Second Life helped me to make the game that I wanted to play, and to share that game with everyone else at a level that I may not have ever had the opportunity for if the Second Life environment was never made available to the public.

With that in mind though the plans for CoLA continue to burn along and grow in proportion to the development of CCS itself. And with that in mind I'm looking at various situations over the next year to draw in enough finances to start finally building the CoLA project as its own game, with no dependence on Second Life at all, and to fully visualize the City of Lost Angels™ as I've always intended it, its own experience.

CCS2 will still be for SL, but CoLA Project 3, is meant for the true expansion of the concepts of this game that I've been drawing up now since 1999 to finally be committed to their own world, their own environment.

And with all that in focus, I spent last night working on the games logo, it has become CoLA's logo in SL, but this is my first visualization and artistic expression of what CoLA "is" in a single visual statement.

For those of you that have been here from the beginning, thank you for everything you've done. But there are many miles to go before we sleep, as the poem says. CoLA will always be in SL, but its going to spread its wings and fly from the nest, as well, very soon.

All I can say is I consider myself very lucky to have these coming opportunities to make my lifes goal a reality. Thank you everyone for helping me as I reached for it.
