Island plans shelved for now

Ah well, there doesn't seem to be enough interest in sharing a private island for me to be able to relatively safely proceed with those plans. No worries -- perhaps some day in the future.

While browsing around though, I did find a really cool looking freeware (Mac) tool, Backhoe. It allows for easy editing of the 13-channel .RAW topography description of private islands. It looks very cool, so maybe I'll play around with it, for use in the future ;)

If the private island project ever did have enough interest, it'd be fun to easily custom-create the terrain, so that everybody involved could have exactly the sort of terrain they'd like. Fun! Doesn't it look cool?
