Time to kick the tires, light the fires, check six,bingo to Mom — Got it?
LOL, Are You In Aviator mode after reading that?

Bravo Zulu! 😉

 Today’s post brings us to a fun sim that is best enjoyed with a partner or in a group.

There are some regulars here and I’m sure they wouldn’t mind going thru tacticals with you.

 0401War_004

Warbug is an aerial combat game designed by Arduenn Schwartzman, It is one of SL’s popular,long running sims.

You fly small carnival like planes that perform aerial tricks, race against others through an asteroid obstacle course, & engage in dogfights.

It was a lil tricky maneuvering the controls on the 1rst voyage, but once you get the hang of it, you will be targeting shots and dropping bombs in no time.

We had a hilarious time… mostly crashing. LOL!.
But, In between the fun, Throttle Back & park in the hang out spots, or browse the shops filled with quirky gadgets and fun items. (Ewww- They have a Fart Hud for sale!lol)

 0401War_005 Snapshot_001

 0401WarR_008

You can purchase your pudgy plane on the sim or marketplace, they are very inexpensive.
You may also win 1 in the lucky chair, or fly a demo when you click the windsock located on the runway.

SL Destinations: PREHISTORICA: The Dawn Kingdoms

Hellllllllllllo!
It’s been a while hasn’t it?! 🙂
Well we haven’t gone far, The New Year came in with a ROAR and a basket of happiness for us both.
This post reminds me of the size of our RL Blessings, DINO HUGE LOL.

 0203OutnAbout1_008

Fort NoWhere is owned by the talented Wanders Nowhere.
This sim has some of the most unique, & awesome avatars for sale here.
Revan and I grabbed the 2 freebies offered which are pretty cool in themselves

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Fort%20Nowhere/128/129/1103

We looked through the vendors & bought the Dinosaurs we fancied, and then proceeded to the ground level for a look around.

 0203Dino_008 0203Dino_005

This sim has a simple layout, similar to what it may have looked when Dinosaurs roamed.

0203Dino_002

Sound effects, Smoking Volcanos, crunchy underbrush in the forest adds the the immersive RP.

 dino 4 dino 6

We had a ball as we battled with LOUD trumpeting growls and snarls as we charged.

 dino 5 0203OutnAbout1_006

Kicked up dust stomping and running. Splashing in the water or munching on green or flesh.

 dino 3 0203OutnAbout1_010

Wanders the busy creator is very friendly, accomodating to visitors and, loves to hear feedback.
We hope you get to see this place for yourself, grab the freebies and have a great time role playing!

Until we read again, Take care!

SL Destinations: 3 Realms of ART

Welcome forward everyone!,

Revan and I are always exploring dozens of sims per day.
We’ve come across so many beautiful & fascinating destinations in Second Life.
Some places are very small, and not much to them to do a full post on,
but still made a big impression on us that we saved landmarks to revisit at another time.

You can imagine the substantial collection we have, we like just about everything lol
With so many LMs in possession, We thought to condense some choice favorites in categories.

Our picks in the “3 Realms” series will be of the Arts in this post.
Art forms in SL are interestingly diverse, With unique perspectives and creativity.
Please take time to support the Art community, refer and patron them frequently.

PORT BEAT CUBES
Look on as we cover the historic, the fun and the interactive.

************************************************
The Terracotta Soldiers (TP)

 TERRA ARMY 1

This SL replica of ancient funerary art is AMAZING.

 TERRA ARMY 3

Here are the RL facts for this: In 1974 these figures were discovered by local farmers in the Lintong District, Xi’an, Shaanxi province.
The figures include warriors, chariots and horses, & varied in height according to their roles, with the tallest being the generals.

 TERRA ARMY 2

These terracotta statues represented the armies of the first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang.
When he passed, They were buried with him to protect the emperor in his afterlife.

 TERRA ARMY 4

************************************************
The Port (TP)

 PORT circles

Loved Loved Loved this place!
This sim is a mashup of eclectic art galleries & media.

 1201Sunday2_006

The Port is a sandbox of sorts for those into machinima, Offering LOTs of resources, & helpful tips.

 PORT trees 1201Sunday2_004

It also has exploratory tunnels, caves & interactive art to play with.

 1201Sunday1_009 1201Sunday2_002

Enter the building called the “Pencil factory” to see innovative & successful past projects that were launched in SL.
We haunted this place for a couple of hours LOL, & had a BALL here!

1201Sunday1_001 PORT Cookies Sound
***********************************************
Echoes in the Garden (TP)

 FISH TOO words

This is one of several interactive installs in SL, by Artist Rose Borchovski.
Echoes is a continuation of the story on a character named Beth and her Grandchild Lot.
This sad and haunting tale comes about because of war.

 FISH TOO heads 1 1201Sunday_013

Bound by rules restricting them of what they can and cannot do,
Beth and Lot were forced to flee their home because a war had started.
They were separated in all the calamity, and Beth never found her grandchild again.

 FISH TOO heads pigs 1201Sunday_016

The Artist injects so much emotion into her creations.
You can feel the fear, the loss and pain of an upcoming war and separation.

FISH TOO phone

Other installations by This artist can be found here:
slurl.com/secondlife/Cariacou/234/53/24 ” THE INEVITABILITY OF FATE”

SL Destinations: Museum Island

Hello & Welcome Exploring Enthusiasts!

keep-calm-its-adventure-time

Today’s post brings us to the beautiful and elegant Museum Island by Carlolello Zapatero.

 1117Museum1_006 1117Museum_009

There are 21 replicas of the world’s richest architectural and historical landmarks of the Mediterranean.

 18.11_002 1117Museum1_026

These ancient wonders are a collection from across France, Iraq, Egypt, Italy, Spain, Turkey, Jordan, & Babylonia of long ago.

 17.11_012 17.11_010 17.11_001

Maps and Directories can be found at the entrance and along the paths as you saunter over the bridges & landscapes warmed by carefully placed sunlight.

 1117Museum1_016 1117Museum1_025 1117Museum1_021

The Textures used on these ancient masterpieces are phenomenal.
The builder took great care in all details, especially with the shadows showing precise depth and realism.

 18.11_016 18.11_014 1117Museum1_017

1117Museum1_013
Each monument will have a board in front, stating the origin and pertinant information of the RL artifact.

 1117Museum1_014 1117Museum1_015

We recommend the 2 automated tours set out.
1 is a walking tour for you and a companion. It will walk you thru the entire Isle not missing one square inch.
It’s really fun to do and if you are like me and Revan, You will try to do it a few more times LOL

 1117Museum1_007

The second is a boat tour that can hold up to 4 avatars. (We had a friendly avatar join us lol~ Hello Morgan Darkrose!)
This tour will encircle and weave around and through the island to get another perspective of all its beauty.

 1117Museum_004 1117Museum_008

We hope you enjoy as we have, This sim has been a favorite of mine for 2yrs and counting, Its a dbl thumbs up approval rating ❤

SL Destinations: The Water Lantern Festival

Well Hello There,

After a few weeks of intense exploring, We finally slowed down enough to do a post today. YAY!
There have been a flurry of events that have started., Some well advertised, some lesser known, but all definite gems.

We just had to tell you about this particular ‘must see’.

1111FAIR_006

The Night Market, at The Water Lantern Festival.

1111FAIR_015 temple lion

It’s a magical event full of Asian-inspired goodies made by the many talented designers in secondlife.

1111FAIR_001 1111FAIR_011 fish

At this time, They also have a fund raiser called “Love to the Philippines.”
The community is showing support for families affected by the Huge & Deadly Typhoon that ripped through the country.
You may donate to this cause by buying from a stall at the gate/landing area.

fund raiser

If you like to take photos, the venue is beautifully decorated, It made us go oooo-ahhh!

temple lotus lantern

We dressed for the occasion and snapped some mementos.

us 2 us 1

The creative mind(s) that designed this venue made it interactive and fun for all.

Even thou you can wade through knee high waters, There are boats to row and float to each stall while you shopped.

SL Destinations: The Robot Sanitarium

Sitting high above the ground, inside the head of the Jetsons’ robot, Rosie, stands a Robot Sanitorium .
Ever wonder what happens to those robots that are just a little…off?

Inside lies the answer….

 Bots Rosies Head

The sim “Whimsy Kaboom” is home to the many mentally malfunctioning mechanoids of the metaverse.

Oct02A2013_010
When you arrive, You will notice they have TP points to other fun areas, located on the left.

Oct022013_020
We chose The Space floater 1rst, It is fun and makes for sweet photo ops. Pose balls are already in place, Jump on one and You can soar, swing and float among the stars. There are poseballs for you and a friend to have a wonderfully tender dance as well.

 Oct022013_005 Bots Us Floating Oct022013_009

It was great seeing Sputnik in the scene as well as a trailing Meteor zipping by, We took Liberties of chilling on them LOL.

Bots Us on Sputnik Oct022013_019
Once you are done hanging out in space, Use The rocket ship pad to return to the Entrance of the Sanitorium.

Bots Reception
Entering Inside, there’s absolutely no indication you’re inside Rosie’s bland blue head.

BOTROSIE2 Bots Control hub
The building looks like an old factory, with soot-stained bricks, dark metal grates for the floors, and dirty windows.

BOTROSIE

Ramps and pipes and machinery are everywhere.

 Oct02A2013_003

Bots Robot maker 1 Bots Robot maker  2

The sanitorium is chock full of robot history, trivia and stressed out mechanical celebrities who needed time out in rehab.
There are PA announcements & warnings not to feed the robots, and to watch out for their cunning behavior.

hedonism-bot-futurama-2942551-800-600

Rebellion is noticed as we see defaced Laws of Robotics posters marked by an anarchy symbol.
Be sure to check out the wall of historic escapes they are hilarious!

 Oct022013_028

They have everything a clinic would have. Rosie the nurse passes out meds, try one and see the effects, its a hoot!

Bots Nurse Oct02A2013_001
Stressed Mechanoids sometimes have the need to be evaluated, & air their concerns with someone who will understand.
No appt needed to see the shrink, walk in and lie on a couch, a robot psychiatrist asks if you are having problems with your motherboard.

“Shrinkbot whispers: Have any problems? Let me help you.”

 BOT PSYCH DOC

There places of leisure for Bots who are making progress in their counseling and rehab. Passes are merited,Only for those on good behavior. They get passes to visit the Beach on the ground level. Use the TP point at the entrance of the building to hang out down there.,

OR…fancy a nice Hot Oil bath? Oh Look, Bender the Celebrity! Shhh, He doesn’t like to be noticed… look away…look away

 Bots Oil Bath

Stable Bots also get clearance to spend time in the Robot Sanitorium Cinema.
“Ticket Giver: Please touch the ticket for entry to the robot theater.”

Bots Cinema
They get to watch TreetTV and classic robot themed movies.

 Oct022013_024

If you think You’d like to experience all this activity firsthand as a Bot?
This infirmary offers the ability to convert your fleshy bioform into a Droid.

Bots man to robot

Just see Bender the receptionist and click his clipboard for the free avatar. 😉

Bots Nurse Bender
We hope you have a BLAST like we did, Hubby and I spent a hours in this place.
So much to marvel at, the creators have definitely outdid themselves.
It’s a great place to visit in a group, and I recommend spreading the word.

Let us know how we are doing, Or if you know of a place that is worthy of a visit we’d be happy to oblige.

Happy Explorations until we read again ❤
