Step Into Another World!

Step Into Another World!

At Villain Baroque’s exhibit on The Rock that remembers a world of romantic beaches and rolling crests – you find yourself transported immediately once you step through the door! Filled with sounds of swooping seagulls and the lullaby of crashing waves, you can’t help but be whisked away. The exhibit, called “Love Me Tender – Romantic Beach Freebies” describes it quite perfectly!

Top Tips for Survival at Dallier’s Hope

It’s not easy being a resident of an asteroid hurtling through space.

Here’s some top tips to make your stay at SL6B as much fun as possible.

1. Set your lighting to region default – we are in the dark here – there’s an awful lot of glow if you have your lighting set to anything else but midnight. Hey cut us some slack, we are in space!

Argh My Eyes!

Argh My Eyes!

Ohh, much better!

Ohh, much better!

2. Try to wear low lag outfits. It’s tough to look svelte in a busy sim, so do yourself and everyone else a favour and try to keep your arc down as low as possible. I have managed to look rather fetching (if I say so for a blue chick) on an arc of 559 – it’s possible to keep in the theme and have fun with it and not feel like you are walking in almost set concrete 🙂

Big Hair, great but not wise for here!

3. Wear sensible shoes. The terrain here varies, and frankly heels aren’t going to cut it.

Fab shoes, but not good for yo,ping around an asteroid..

4. Start in the north sims and work your way down – the sims are all pretty busy, but if you want to see every exhibit, start at the top of the grid and work your way down, you will be travelling in the reverse direction of the crowds, and it will be much easier.

Start at the top, work down...

5. Stop and talk to people! The community feeling here at The Rock is fantastic, stop and talk, make some new friends, and while you are stood talking, your world will rez that much easier.

6. Grab some freebies. The aliens at The Paradox are simply amazing, catch one today – you may never look at a freebie hunt the same way.

Aliens amongst us..

7. Take a tram. it helps to rez the sims for you, you can get off at any point, and you never know who may jump in with you!

Tram Hi-Jinks!

8. Have sounds enabled on your computer. There are some amazing ambient sounds been created for the exhibitor builds, and the infrastructure – this is a visual and aural delight!

9. Catch some DJ’s or a live performance. We have DJ, and musicians from all around the globe, with something going on 24/7

10. Theres a world of events listed at: http://tr.im/SL6Bevents check out a few!

Each pod will pay a different film.

Are You A Superhero ? Asks AM Radio

He be a Future shaper

He be a Future shaper

A question asked by the artist AM Radio, he goes on to say ”Welcome to AM Radio’s One Thousand Heroes! Second Life is a world where anyone can become a super hero! To start you on your super story I can provide you with a super hero’s transportation! The 1936 Superdyne. Simply touch the car to make it your own at no cost!”

A superhero car? “How can I save the future?” you ask. Drive the car to find out! This car is fast and you’ll want practice, and when you’re ready, you to will know how to be a super hero!

AM’s goal is to make 1000 such heroes at the SL6B event – so if  you feel so inclined please come along and help him. There is more information to be had about this car and what to do with it but I am not going to post that hear – now why reveal it all? No, no, no …. Come see for yourself if it peaks your interest! The fun is discovering for yourself is it not?

Dalliers Hope SL6B Mystery! HELP!

The Culprits!

The Culprits!

Hope you’ve got good flight controls, CyberTroopers! You’ve been called into active duty to reclaim our gifts from those rotten little rodent Aliens in The Paradox! They’re flying around cackling and shouting obscenities at anyone they see and we need our Birthday Gifts Back!

HOW IT WORKS:

  • Each Alien is carrying a Library of Loot items; Some common, some rare!
  • After a prize is claimed, the Alien retreats for 10 minutes to get more gifts from his stash!
  • The Aliens give back the gifts randomly from their stash! Two people won’t get the same gift in a short period.
  • One Alien is carrying a special GUS Security Bot for your very own – complete with commands!
  • The Quest for the Birthday Presents ends June 29th @ 11:59pm when the mothership returns to collect the twerps!
  • All Aliens fly – And fast! They have propulsion technology! Jetpacks! Keep up if you can!
  • Once you teleport into The Paradox, make your way to the ground!  They’re not THAT high up!
  • Prizes were donated from Second Life residents! THANK YOU!

V-TV is Virtually Chatty!

The V-TV Crew

The V-TV Crew

We live on the cusp of interoperability. An ability that will one day be the standard of all virtual worlds. We will port from place to place, from experience to experience; Yes, Fashionistas, even from store to store. 3D worlds will replace web pages, which will have become as obsolete as an 8 track player. You will move through the net as a traveler through space… not surfing via your web browser. We are seeing threads of this today, and an Exhibit called V-TV by Misprint Thursday (Love that name!) Oberon Onmura and Cinco Pizzacato explores that possibility in a simple concept.

The Data Room

The Data Room

You are dropped into a black box that is filed with bits of floating data- seems simple enough. There is a box in the center that, once clicked, tells you that it has it’s own email address. Flipping to your browser you can send it an email and the text of that email appears above the box in Second Life. When I arrived, someone had submitted a lovely poem! It is one world talking to another. It is a beautiful example of the very beginning of this futuristic concept.

Reading in an alien garden

I’m all for a little bit of a relax. After a hard day yomping through the murky dust of The Rock (not in stilettos I might add), sometimes I want to just relax and have something take me away from all the dark and uncertainty.

The Garden

Reading in an alien garden is a calm oasis, and if you need to have a  few minutes peace away from  the hustle and bustle, and I strongly urge you to go visit one of the most immersive and beautiful plots in the whole of SL6B. I am a sucker for a garden, and I am a sucker for a good story. I am not going to tell you what to expect when you get here, because discovery is almost all the fun, wouldn’t you agree?

Please come and visit.

The Last RainMaker

The Last RainMaker

The Last Rain Maker: This Arid land of darkness – leaves us to see

The Last Rain Maker: the very last rainmaker to remind us of what used to be
The Last Rain Maker: machine made illusions is all we now have – a distant memory of dream time confusion
The Last Rain Maker: this be the last rain maker

A bio dome encased wheat and poppy field, with art donated by Bryn Oh, Mantis Oh and Cube Republic. The Last Rain Maker cloud falls from the sky which hangs above the asteroid surface in the semi sphere twilight, generated by a Scope Cleaver build … an avatar oasis of the future, built by and for the community – we be the collective. This has been projected to your minds eye as a parallel illusion. Blink.
