I know of a hidden treasure within Our Great Canadian Grid. Mystic Falls is the name of my neighbours Derick and Morgan Chaplin's land.
I have seen many of their builds over the years and each one seems to just get better.
From Star Wars to medieval, you never know what they will come up with next.
Morgan and Derick have been working together for 15 years.
Derick would describe himself as more of a hermit type. He is very creative and is more of a builder. He creates the builds.
Morgan is a designer who does the mapping and painting for most of the builds.
She is rather quiet but is very friendly and willing to show others their creations.
They do their own animations most of the time as well which are very good and well thought out.
What drew them to GCG mainly was the fact that it is Canadian, with a good price.
They feel that GCG to them offers a fair price, has a great owner, nice friendly people. They find that GCG is a fun place to be with a stable grid.
They just wanted to own a couple of regions and build. Being able to design items and improve on them without breaking the bank is a big plus.
Their vision of creating many things in GCG was the main goal. No up load cost being one of the great perks of our grid.
They feel they have been able to design and build new and interesting sims that they would never be able to do anywhere else.
One thing they would like to see is the ability to save Oar's. I quote: "If not in our hard drive at least a place where we can access them on a list by name or at least date."
With all the various builds I have seen over the years this would be an amazing thing to be able to do. It is sad to see them just disappear when they try something new.
They live day to day, but long term plans are building and creating all sorts of new things.
Right now they are working on Winter and Christmas designs. I have seen a few of the new builds and they are outstanding. I can't wait to see what they create next!
I have been working on getting them to sell their creations in world.
The castle is well built, with many surprises inside.
The new gypsy wagons, and area there is very well thought out, even with a lovely dancing gypsy and places to sit and eat by a fire.
The village shops give you a feeling like stepping back into the past. Horse and carriage, even a hearse and many people milling about just like it would have been.
Whatever they are planning next I am certain it will be epic to say the least!
Morgan and Derick, you bring a smile each time we meet, and an amazement at the unlimited imagination of two people who make a very awesome team.
I would love to be able to showcase each and every item I have seen there, but with limited space you will all need to just go see for yourself. Mystic Falls on the grid map.
I hope you all take a moment out of your busy schedules to go visit their sim, and then re-visit often. It is definitely worth the trip.
