Sky Fallen

By – Ziki Questi’s Blog. Visit Sky Fallen for original post.

“These photography sims are a lot of fun,” remarked Syn Zane (Syn Beresford) as we discussed Sky Fallen, her new space open exclusively to members of the Elysion group. “I’m working out ideas for the next one already.” Syn, who is the creator and proprietor of the well-known sim Elysion, created Sky Fallen as a haven for Second Life photographers. “I love seeing how people photograph things,” she added. “It’s really exciting to me, and makes me want to just constantly make something new so they can take photos.”

The striking island sim does indeed present enchanting opportunities: a large Romanesque domed building stands on the shoreline against a crescent moon (top image), while tranquil and surreal natural scenes can be found from almost every vantage point. In the image below, luminescent flowers pulse against Dr. Suess-like stones stretching up from the sea. The island’s prominent balloon (lowest image) isn’t simply a stationary piece of exterior decor, but provides an autopiloted tour around Sky Fallen.

As for the sim being open only to members of the Elysion group (“I had a few people send me hate mails about that,” Syn laughed), the L$ 650 group fee not only admits visitors to Sky Fallen, but also to the gorgeous Elysion sim itself. She continued, “I figure it’s a pretty good perk for members to have something special.” Sky Fallen will remain open only until September 18, and other special Elysion group locations will follow in the future.

Tuesday, August 23rd was not a particularly good day for Second Life, with an extended period of unscheduled maintenance with log-ins suspended and those in-world advised to refraining from rezzing No Copy objects, or making any LindeX related transactions, etc. At the time of the problem, there was speculation that it might be due to […]

A Chinese Garden in Second Life

By Inara Pey – Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World. Visit A Chinese Garden in Second Life for original post.

There are many spiritual centres throughout Second Life offering a range of environments and opportunities for rest, spiritual comfort, recovery, teaching and more. One such region is Qoheleth (Hebrew:  gatherer / assembler; an assembly). I’ve been drawn there a couple of times over the course of the last year – although admittedly not out of […]

Second Life Scams

By Nalates Urriah – Nalates’ Things & Stuff. Visit Second Life Scams for original post.

A basic idea in the free market and civilization in general is theft and misrepresentation are bad things. I suppose that is why we love politicians.  So, when we find a place where theft and lying are harming people many of us will step up and say something. So, Strawberry Singh has spoken in Full … Continue reading

I missed this when Aki released it three months ago. The location for Project Bento meetings has changed from what is said in the video. They now meet in Hippotropolis, Agni (the main grid) on Thursdays at 1 PM SLT/PT. I think they moved to the main grid to make it easier for more people … Continue reading
