CoLAHeya all, we just spent the whole weekend promoting CoLA and CCS to around 25,000 people to the A-Kon Anime and Gaming Convention in Dallas, Texas.

We had a great time and spent a of time along side Anthony Brownrigg, the director of Archaic Redemption and Emerick Jade, the actress who is playing Jaxxie Jules in the movie and of course general girl wonder extraordinaire, or at least from what we saw of her at the convention.

As you might expect after getting home we were still a bit wound up and it took awhile to get to sleep, but eventually slept like the dead.

I know a lot of people are asking about the second free respec, yes I did mention a few times it would be after the 12th of June, and yes it will be, but I would like everyone to please relax and realize that I'm a human being and I just need a day to recover before we get back to the business of CCS and all that.

So expect the free global respec to be pushed network wide on the 14th, and my availability in world will become more regular then as well. Just need to unwind and get back to normal here.

If you haven't checked it out we got a ton of pictures at the Con and I made several good industry contacts while doing gaming panels at the convention, you can check all that out here at the Official City of Lost Angels Facebook
CoLAUp at the top of the site you'll see there is a new link that says COLA SWAG. We're just putting an option out there for our player base and fans of the COLA Universe to buy t-shirts with our community logo on them.

We get a small commission for each purchase so it helps out our finances a bit and gets you a wicked obscure gothy t-shirt that will make people wonder how you suddenly got so hip and underground.

Unpurchasable at Hot-Topic, The Gap, or even the local Salvation Army, your CoLA t-shirt will be a unique item in your goth wardrobe that even your coolest friends can't get!

In all seriousness we just thought we'd try it out, purchases are not compulsory but grab one if you want one.

If people like the idea we'll expand the inventory a bit with some other options and new graphic designs. Otherwise, no harm, no foul.
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.
