I love working in CAW and I've been itching to get back into it after a two year hiatus. Ralton-on-Sea is the result. It's very much a WIP, since I started work on it a couple of weeks ago.
It's designed to be a town on the south coast of England. I've taken inspiration from Looe, Mevagissey and Charleston, all in Cornwall and close to where I live. There's a detailed backstory with a history of piracy and smuggling which will be developed more as the world grows. For now, I have a few screenshots taken this evening from EIG.
The Harbour. All buildings are currently shells. I'm intending to further decorate and landscape later, most likely in game since I usually use a lot of CC and I really don't want to cause problems in CAW if I can help it.
The harbour cottages will be NPC apartments, all except the double-fronted house in the middle which will actually be residential.
This area is in Westward Cove, which is home to the smuggling of Ralton.Westward Cove was first discovered by Captain Francis 'Flintlock' Cutlass who sailed into the cove accidentally while avoiding cannon fire from Ralton Castle on the south coast. The cove is very secluded and Captain Cutlass discovered it to be not only out of range of the cannons but out of sight, making it the perfect location for unloading contraband. The cargo could then be transported at the nearby railway station without the authorities knowing anything about it.
This is the cave on Westward Beach. It's rumoured Captain Cutlass used to hide his cargo and treasures here before setting sail.
