Travel in Second Life: Watercolors From Bar Deco, A Quaint Waterfront Town



BarDeco is a charming waterfront town that is actually constructed on 8192 square meters (1/8 of a sim) on the edge of an island parcel.  DJ's perform here, most likely at the large cafe shown in the last photo of this series. BarDeco appears to be far larger than its actual size due to excellent layout and trompe de l'oeil visual effects due to usage of some of the most realistic building facade effects I have seen in virtual reality. What appears to be a well provisioned antique store or well decorated home is, in actuality, just a well textures simple prim box. This is a very attractive and surprising destination that proves once again that great building design can occur in limited spaces.  I highly recommend a visit.

Travel in Second Life: Watercolors From Neko no Jinja, A Japanese Winter Wonderland



Winter in Japan is incomparably beautiful and well represented in Second Life, particularly by standout destinations such as Neko no Jinja. I want to provide some personal context.  When I first visited Japan, I did not find the metropolises of Tokyo and Osaka, particularly attractive. They were densely packed, very concrete, and for the most part devoid of parks and  trees.  But once I got outside of the main cities and visited the mountainous spine of Japan, I was dazzled. I was lucky enough to visit in December, when early snow and icy lakes shined in the winter sun. The clean lines of Japanese architecture look amazing in this setting -- as they do in this stand-out destination.
