Arachnid by Cica Ghost - Second life - SL Newser

Arachnid by Cica Ghost - Second life - SL Newser | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it
The sim landing places us in a large cage, or trap structure, with information, a TP to Cica's workshop and a tip jar. The sim lighting is a cloudy twilight grey. It's the kind of sky that makes you wish you had brought an umbrella along. As we look around, the large spider webs, in every direction, suggest the umbrella might also serve to hack our way through the sticky barriers. We also notice that there are eight cages, like the one we started in, scattered around the sim. Eight is also the number of legs on a spider. Is Cica doing this to show that there is a connection between the spiders and cages. These structures are "man made". Are they here to protect us from the spiders, or are they the webs we weave for ourselves, that trap us and remove our freedom to live a full life? One of the cages contains several revolving displays of fancy gowns. How much of our life energy is drained by the need to stay in style with the trends, when most of us would be just as happy to wear the same old t-shirt and jeans, every day?

Mourningstar  LEA 11- Second life  - Ziki Questi

Mourningstar  LEA 11- Second life  - Ziki Questi | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it
Now open at LEA11 is Mourningstar, an immersive installation by Anahera (Fox Nacht), that, as she says, is an "exploration of the ideas of the fallen angel, the vengeful god, and the diverse perceptions of Lucifer in various religious and social traditions ... A virtual pilgrimage, proposing an alternate mythology." The artwork was inspired in large part by John Milton's Paradise Lost and Gustave Doré's illustrations, and the sim's engraving-influenced textures spring to life more vividly without advanced lighting model enabled.

Pocket Racing at Ace Resort, Tohl777C - Second life 

Pocket Racing at Ace Resort, Tohl777C - Second life  | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

“It’s a glorious day here at the Inazuma circuit, Ace Resort, with perfect race conditions, a track temperature of 37 degrees, and the drivers all looking forward to a good race…” I’m always on the lookout for fun things to do in Second Life – hence how I got into sailing, boating and flying. I’ve also poked around at cars and racing, but they’ve never really appealed to the same degree. However, when Annie Brightstar posted an article about trying a Pocket Racing circuit recently, it piqued my curiosity. The track in question is the [Pocket Racers] Inazuma Circuit, part of the 719 Racing brand created by Hakuyuki719. It is designed to fit into a 1/4 region and comes complete with everything needed for up to 8 people at a time to race one another and / or race against the clock. The cars presented by the track are the little 719 [Pocket Racer] Wing series which can also be purchased separately as a rezzing system.

 Sanctuary by the Sea - , Afanasyev - Second Life  - Echt Virtuell | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it
Bei diesem Simtipp weiß ich gar nicht, wo ich anfangen soll. Also, ich habe vor ein paar Tagen eine Mainland-Tour auf den Straßen des Kontinents Satori begonnen. Wegen meiner knapp bemessenen Zeit, komme ich aber immer nur so 20 bis 30 Regionen voran, bevor ich wieder auslogge. Als ich dann gestern schon ein gutes Stück auf der Route 8 unterwegs war, habe ich an der Küste ein paar Häuser entdeckt, die für das Mainland nicht gerade üblich sind.
Schon nach einem kurzen Kamerazoom hatte ich sofort die Idee, dass ich diese Region mal ohne Auto erkunden werde. Heute bin ich dann erneut dorthin und was soll ich sagen - für eine Mainland-Region ist das ein echter Hammer. Ich wollte eigentlich nur schnell ein paar Fotos schießen und diesen Simtipp hier viel früher bloggen. Doch nun war ich über drei Stunden dort und habe dennoch nur einen Teil gesehen.

Having a few empty minutes on Second life, rather than continue the endless struggle me versus my Inventory I searched for somewhere to visit and happened upon the Pocket Racing Track at Ace Resort.
Up to 8 cars can be rezzed, and as well as racing against your friends, you can compare your times with others on the Ranking Board.
Good fun, but now back to that inventory :(

Farewell, Frisland , Laluna Island - Second Life  - Ziki Questi | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it
After two years as one of Second Life's most popular and photographed sims, Frisland, which opened in spring 2014, will close on June 4. Created and hosted by Charlie Namiboo, Frislanda Ferraris and Anabell Barzane, the sim has undergone a series of seasonal changes and currently presents a dreamy but summery climate. (Read here, here, and here for some earlier blog posts.)

Impressionen vom Castle, Home and Garden Contest 2016 - second Life - Echt Virtuell | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it
Vor einer Woche hatte ich hier den Third Annual Castle, Home and Garden Contest vorgestellt, der vom 23. Mai bis zum 4. Juni in Second Life durchgeführt wird. In dieser Woche war ich dann zwei Mal auf dem riesigen Gelände, das zwölf Regionen abdeckt.
Einen ausführlichen Bericht wird es von mir jetzt nicht geben. Denn ich habe mich bei meiner Besichtigung überhaupt nicht um irgendwelche Hintergrundinfos gekümmert. Ich habe noch nicht einmal nachgesehen, welche Burgen, Häuser und Gärten von wem gebaut wurden. Eigentlich bin ich nur kreuz und quer über die Regionen gelaufen, immer zum nächsten auffälligen Objekt, das in meine Sichtweite kam.

Morbid Dreams, Air Atoll - Second Life

Morbid Dreams, Air Atoll - Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it
Morbid Dreams is a sim owned by Zed Karas. I’ve known Zed for years and I have always loved her sense of humor. So when she invited me to come take a look at her sim, I headed right over to check it out. I’d been there before, but I’d never spent time wandering around.
I knew I was in for a treat, and Zed did not disappoint! I found whimsical little touches all over the sim. I found this adorable guy swimming in the waters around the sim’s edge. There’s a steampunk boat you can commandeer, so if you do explore by boat, make sure to keep an eye out for him!

KOWLOON - Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Photographer Tessa Zalivstok

Of all the sims recreating RL places, none is more authentic than Kowloon. The grime, the neon, almost even the rats.
We know. For 7 years Tessa lived 100 yards from scenes just like this. Even the dishes on the restaurant menus are authentic. OK we will have a couple of minor quibbles. For example the sign to Tessa's right, 九龍飯店 would be fine in most of china - we Honkies prefer 九龍酒店. But we quibble. Brilliant stuff!

The Lost Unicorn Gallery, A Fantasy Art Faerie Tale, Faerie Tale- Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it
The Lost Unicorn is a mystical sim with unicorns, elves, fairies, etc. This is a beautiful sim that has had very much work put into it...the pictures do not do justice to it.. There is a teleporter on the ground where you land, click it and choose one of the many destinations. There are plenty of places to cuddle with the one you love or dance....or maybe you just want a quiet place to relax.

Beautiful Suicide, Maneater - Second Life

Beautiful Suicide, Maneater - Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Beautiful Suicide is an enigmatic region designed by Jaidens Rancid (Jaidens) which has been featured in the Destination Guide for the last couple of weeks, thus attracting my attention. “Embrace yourself,” the Destination Guide entry reads, “for something has happened here.” Quite what that something might be, is left to our imaginations to conjure: and there is certainly enough here to get the thoughts ticking over. Cast into a perpetual dusk under the default windlight, this is a place of dark mystery, offering some interesting photo opportunities.

Lost Dream is a stunning destination offering many photographing opportunities. There are several romantic poses with very nice lighting effects available for romantic photography. I thought that the Windlight Sky Setting [TOR] SUNRISE - Ultimate!, which comes as a lighting option in Firestorm and other viewers. was particularly appropriate for these dramatic photographs. I repositioned the location of the sun and clouds (available as an advanced option) to get my exact effects.

Spotlight on The 1920's Berlin Project - Second Life

Spotlight on The 1920's Berlin Project - Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it
Take a trip back in time to Berlin in the 1920s and enjoy this interesting political and cultural moment. The 1920's Berlin Project is a historic community role-playing in Second Life that simulates daily life in Berlin during the Weimar Republic. This is one of the few sims in Second Life that is based on a historical period. Teleporting to this region gives us the feeling that we actually are in Berlin in the 20s, in a realistic and authentic way. The project was conceived within the virtual world to help people understand Weimar (an unofficial designation for the German state between 1919 and 1933).
