... everyone knew that all islands were worlds unto themselves, that to come to an island was to come to another world.

The Isolated Crag always shimmered on the horizon, yet nobody ever reached it. It was always there but just out of reach, always present but never welcoming. You could sail, it is said, towards the crag for one hundred days and one hundred nights and one would still find themself no closer. It is said in songs that only sirens and mermen live there - and they sing and play the harp all day and all night. It is said they guard the most wonderful treasure and play the most wonderful songs. The crag is known for being the centre of many a story, yet few realised that the true wonder of the crag wasn't its people, or the stories, or the songs or the praise, but rather the beauty of the crag itself.

I'm extremely glad to see that PMC is having a terraforming contest! I don't have too much time these days but I knew I would certainly have to enter. I came up with many an idea for different island themes but at the end of the day the appeal of a tropical island never grows old, and I set to work creating an ideal island. I wanted to give it a 'weathered paradise' appearance so I used mossy stone in my layering, as well as grass on some parts of the beach front to simulate washed up debris. I experimented with seaweed and driftwood but decided it didn't fit the theme of the perfect paradise I was going for, so instead used grass on the beachfront to give the impression of seaweed being washed up. As Gaunilo of Marmoutiers says in response to the Ontological Argument, "one cannot imagine a perfect island", however I gave it my all and am very, very happy with the result.

Looks great, man. I like the way you've dithered the shore. I always see people fuck up the shoreline and you didn't - great job.

Appreciate it brother! The shore took a while for sure, but it's something I've been meaning to experiment with for a while and I'm satisfied with how it turned out.
