Exploring Second Life – Straylights

Okay, fixed that persistent little bug in my system. Now I can really go to Straylights!

The bridge

Umm, reminds me of… Alice in Wonderland? This pace got great texturing. I seems so… outdoor, peaceful, and attractive.  The water effects are great, probably using a UV scrolling method.

Light coming in from the sky

Now this is interesting, I’ve yet to come across a place with this kind of light effect anywhere in Second Life. Seeing this, what else could I say? Amazing!

So this is why they called the place Straylights

Seeing the environment and level of detail given to this place, I would love to enjoy the stereoscopic version!

Che, got lost again

Cometh, I will be your guide

They're all here

This actually spooked me the first time, I went … for a while before realizing, it’s actually flowing! How in the world did they do this amazing light particle effect?!

Exploring Second Life – International Spaceflight Museum

Well now, since it’s been a while from the last time I logged into Second Life. I decided to enter SL yet again. I don’t really prefer SL due to certain reasons, like sudden disconnections, or crazies who do immoral stuffs, or a group of users who kept complaining, complaining, complaining in the middle of the crowd. And that time when the SL environment around me appear the banner **** non-stop with annoying sound-effects… Totally kills the mood there…

Back to Second Life, okay, I’m now at International Spaceflight Museum and here at the entrance is, space!

Theres a huge banner of the solar system here

Okay, from what I know so far about the International Space flight museum is,

Oh hey! I found the visual map of ISM! Now this will make my life a whole lot easier!

Now where should I go?

The New Horizons Spacecraft will reach the planet in 2015

Hmm, I want to go to Pluto.

Pluto, or 134340 Pluto, is the second-largest dwarf planet in the Solar System (after Eris) and tenth-largest body known orbiting our Sun. Originally classified as a planet, Pluto is now considered the largest member of a distinct population known as the Kuiper Belt.

Pluto is composed primarily of rock and ice and is relatively small: approximately a fifth the mass of the Earth’s Moon and a third its volume.

Pluto and its largest moon, Charon, are sometimes treated together as a binary system because the barycenter of their orbits does not lie within either body. Pluto has two known smaller moons, Nix and Hydra, discovered in 2005.

The name Pluto was proposed by Venetia Burney (later Venetia Phair), an eleven-year-old schoolgirl in Oxford, England. She considered the name, that of the Roman god of the underworld, appropriate for such a presumably dark and cold world.

I misstepped and fell to Earth!

Oh? A simulator of the Solar System

Wandered into a tree house of sorts

Exploring Second Life – Numbakulla

Okay, now to exploring Second Life. I have been distracted with the PlayStation 3 HOME to explore SL, reason? Not sure, maybe the environment that attracts me?

Anyway, now I’m in SL, exploring Numbakulla.
