SL Destinations: Warbug

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)

 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.

This is the J-Team reporting from Linden Labs Moonbase…

 0220space_005 moon 10

We have landed safely and analyze this destination in full detail for you.

This simulator is set in a crater with multi levels that reach from the surface to deep underground.

 0222space_008

The Moon Base is a fully functioning center, equipped research rooms, a medical bay, a green house, and docking platforms.

 0220space1_010 0222space_003

These multi levels are accessed by lifts and corridors sealed with pressure doors.

 moon 9 0220space1_001 moon 7

There is a feeling of solitude and isolation here., Stark, depicted like the real deal.

 0222space_007

We noticed traffic in & out of the sim is extremely low to nil and agree it would make an ideal spot for machinima,
photography or RP.

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!

Some turn to fortune telling to speculate
giving hope, where none is found.

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.

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.

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

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.

Climb ladders into the sky and take in the view on the backs of giant flying turtles.

Winding tunnels lead to hidden caves where gold plants and flowers make a stark contrast to the pink world outside.

Flying fish, brightly colored birds and butterflies will stir your imagination.
