Project Sansar Summary

Please review blogger Inara Pey's post for an excellent compilation of currently known public facts about the new Sansar Project here: http://modemworld.me/2015/07/25/the-sansar-summary-july-2015/

This is the best summary I've seen so for of pubic information that's been released and well worth a read if you have an interest (as we all should) in the new Linden Lab Sansar Project.  She cites her sources and everything for a good comprehensive picture of what we might come to expect. 


Here is another RL recent media report: http://variety.com/2015/digital/news/second-life-maker-linden-lab-wants-to-build-the-wordpress-of-virtual-reality-1201546110/

LICK, Explore in Second Life

Visit here:http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Oyster%20Bay/128/128/10

The LICK sim has been redone and once again it's a great explore, place to play, hangout, and take pics.  I've blogged this sim that changes periodically here: http://karasecondlife.blogspot.com/2015/04/lick-sim-design-end-of-world-as-we-know.html where you can see the last design there. 

LICK Sim Designs-The McFly Project by owner and creator Sera Bellic is located at Oyster Bay(63,205,22) "LICK sim design offers complete sim/parcel design, landscaping and interior design. LICK is dedicated to creating beautiful, enchanting spaces for your home or business.  If you can DREAM IT, LICK can CREATE IT."
           

LICK The landing spot placed me in a highly detailed and actually gorgeous old run-down carnival type area.  After exploring and playing around, I crossed the carnival grounds and entered a small doorway into the cliff wall, walked down a path into caves where there is a lower level filled with sci fi cyber type equipment, then up across a bridge and out into another open area that is a futuristic set on a watery field.  There are various build units, 2 typs of boat rezzers you can zoom around in, a sky bar, pretty nature areas with plenty of seating spots and plenty to see and do all set against a beautiful cliff waterfall backdrop.   Both sections have a lot of fun things to click, pose and animate on, so be sure to just click everything if you like that.  Windlights work great and it's also a fun place for photographers.
