Fall Trace

By – Ziki Questi’s Blog. Visit Fall Trace for original post.

Fall may be rapidly vanishing in the Northern Hemisphere, but it’s alive and abundantly well at Fall Trace, a new twist on the tradition of changing seasons at The Trace (read here), originally developed by Kylie Jaxxon in 2013. Beginning in 2014, Kylie was joined by designer Elvira Kytori, and the two have collaborated over the past couple years, changing the seasons at The Trace every several months. Now, rather than delete the old season, the pair have opted to add two additional sims, so that the Summer Trace remains, and Fall Trace and Winter Trace are new additions, with each setting remaining on display for a year before revision.

Elvira was the lead landscaper and decorator on Fall Trace, with Kylie and Gnaaah Xeltentat credited as co-decorators. The sim is a stunningly beautiful setting in which fall colors — rich browns and reds — are brought to life under a dreamy sky. Visitors can make their way around the sim on wooden walkways that cut through the tall grasses — tall and thick enough that it’s hard to see through them, until suddenly a majestic view opens up, and one can see the horizon. The walkways weave about and connect various small buildings and homes, many of which contain charming interiors and places to relax.

Be sure to have local sounds turned up, as the abundant wildlife on the sim — especially birds — creates a rich sonic environment, and be sure also to accept the sim’s default windlight settings, as shown here. This is a sim that’s sure to become a favorite for photographers, explorers, couples looking for a spot to cuddle, and wanderers looking for some solitude. If you enjoy your visit to Fall Trace, please consider leaving a contribution.

The Plain of Jars

By Caitlin Tobias – Cait’s World. Visit The Plain of Jars for original post.

Fitch Lekvoda’s “The Plain of Jars” is…well, that. A plain of jars. Giants jars. Hundreds and hundreds of them. Some half covered in the sand, others standing in the sun. And nobody really knows where they came from or what they mean.

The Plain of Jars - II - Blogpost

“Some now recall the legend of the giant King’s victory banquet. Believing the jars to be the leftover alcohol vessels from that banquet.  Others think of a more mundane purpose, to collect rain water for passing caravans….”

The Plain of Jars - I - Blogpost

A very interesting place, quite something else and that is what I love about it! The Plain of Jars is impressive and wonderful to walk around and let your imagination go.

The Plain of Jars - IV - Blogpost

Showing how huge they are!

Some places, like this one..need no explanation…just go see it and enjoy! And if you take pictured, do not forget to add them to the Plain of Jars Flickrgroup!

La Digue du Braek

By Caitlin Tobias – Cait’s World. Visit La Digue du Braek for original post.

La Digue du Braek, by Serene Footman (known from his popular sim Furillen) and Jade Koltai, is the Second Life version – or interpretation – of a real life location in Dunkerque, France.

La Digue du Braek - I - A Blogpost A road, 7 kilometers long, with a beach on one side and heavy industries on the other side, a wonderful landscape if you need a break from autumn and snow sims!

La Digue du Braek - II - A Blogpost

I’ve been to Dunkerque when I was a little Caity, and I am not sure if I have seen this Digue in real life, or at least I have no recollection of it. So I looked it up on Google Maps, to find out this Second Life location indeed looks similar!

Go visit La Dique du Braek It is great for exploring and taking pictures!

Say goodbye to the pain of the past

By Wendz Tempest – Home and Garden – CozeySL. Visit Say goodbye to the pain of the past for original post.

say-goodbye-to-the-pain-of-the-past_2000

Before I go hogwild on snow drifts and snowflakes, lets give it up for Autumn and her spectacular array of colorful wonders, against the onslaught of yet another northern winter.

I’m like the blogging little train that could, climbing up that hill to catch up. I think I can, I think I can!

Right, so the Draftsman Event is still underway and since it is a bi-monthly event, you have a good amount of time to stop by and check out the wares for its premier. Couple of items featured here, Galland Homes’ Hanover Barn and a neat fence kit from a ‘new to me’ brand, peaches.

At the top of the hill, we find the latest release from Cheeky Pea for Fameshed. The Ashby Garden snug is full of features for you, a loved one and maybe a third batter up but I digress.

Lately, I’ve been including the landscaping credits, just to get in the habit of listing them somewhere. With the advent of prim mania now overtaking our beautiful corner of the metaverse (yay for prims!), it will be interesting to see how positive the effect will be for the Home and Garden market, including Landscaping & Design businesses.

I am slowly easing back into experimenting with landforms, rocks, terraforming and the like. You can check out my latest project at the Vordun Museum/Gallery and Fancy Decor sim, where I rented a snowblower and went at it.

Just kidding. Or am I?! Also the Vordun Museum and Gallery is an official sponsor this round of the December Arcade. Have you made it in yet? Don’t give up! A new exhibit with past winners from the Arcade will be opening tomorrow, Dec. 4th at the Vordun, so do make plans with the fambam!

200+ words today ya’ll! Chatty Bumble is back🙂 Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave comments or questions in the box below.

A Mystical Christmas in Second Life

By – webspelunker – My Travels Across Second Life. Visit A Mystical Christmas in Second Life for original post.

Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more! 

Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

It’s that time of the year again.

We wonder where the past year has gone…

We look forward to the winter solstice

And, with of all of this, some of us look forward to Christmas!

(I reassure Significant Other that a certain list has been received.)

In Second Life (SL), Christmas is very much alive just as in Real Life (RL).

But, perhaps, no more so than in Mieville where the indefatigable Perryn Peterson, its Mayor, and his elves have been pulling extra shifts to get ready for the Christmas Holiday inworld!   

In Christmases past, Mieville has been host to A Christmas Carol, an Elizabethan Christmas with a frozen River Thames, and a winter wonderland to name but a few themes.   

Perryn and his band of merry elves have not been lacking for ideas for this year’s Christmas. 

Its theme is Mystic Yule which as Perryn puts it is, “A full sim of snowy, forested, magical, faerie Christmas and Yule delights!”  (The man does have a way with words!)
And, it’s all waiting for you to come and enjoy!

There is much to see and do as always!

Visitors will be able to visit merchants in over one hundred booths and wagons peruse their goods.  There’ll be entertainment, gachas, ice skating, dancing, food and drinks, and much more! 

And, of course, don’t forget the new and improved mini-hunt where each merchant will have a surprise gift hidden in their establishment for shoppers to try and find. 

Mieville wouldn’t be Mieville without new and magical attractions.

This year has almost all new buildings, gorgeous landscaping by Mike Olbracht,

beautiful dance area, wintery rides and the Wizard’s Tower!  (Hint: Which you can find your way out of by following the “down” doors which are clearly marked!)    

Perryn and his crew wanted to do something faerie-like and mysterious, home in on the mystical nature of Christmas, and to cater to their large fantasy following.

They’ve outdone themselves as usual!

(Yes, admittedly, I’m biased.  But, given the wonderful experiences which Perryn and his team produce consistently for their visitors, I think I’m entitled!)

I heartily recommend visiting Mystic Yule in Mieville which runs from December 1st to January 1stand can be located here! 

Maybe you’ll even run into me there!

I’d like to thank Perryn and his elves for another wonderful seasonal event and for

assisting me in preparing this story for all my loyal readers!  (All three of you!) 

I’d also like to thank The Companion who took all the beautiful photos used in this story and the others which can be found on this flickr page. 

Happy Holidays to all from Significant Other and me! 

As always, I’m grateful to all inworld for their kindness and time in stopping to talk with a stranger who was passing through their lives. 

My Twitter handle is @webspelunker.  Please feel free to follow me and I’d be happy to follow you.
