Split Screen at LEA15 For Everywhere Nowhere and The Games We Play

Visit Split Screen at LEA15 here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA15/138/129/551

My friend Dividni Shostakovich hosts LEA15 this round and currently has two exhibits there to enjoy through the end of the month.  There is The Games we Play which is like a giant room of chess pieces that are much larger than life size by Krystali Rabeni.  On anther several levels there is Everywhere Nowhere by Jade Yu Fhang. Be sure you click around as you can pose and animate in some place.  I took a few pics of course.

These super cool pictures have multiple animations, sounds, and various other options.  This video does not do them justice as my poor laptop isn't so great for video any more but you can get the idea.. a must-see in person.  These are made by my friend Will Burns/Aeonix Aeon in Second life.  Halloween is coming!

More on Sansar and Also some Great New Second Life Investments by LL


Visit Sansar Beta here: https://community.secondlife.com/blogs/entry/2218-open-beta-begins-for-sansar/
I decided to check out Sansar again today for a little while.  It's in beta stage so anyone can visit. There are quite a few interesting places to see and many more in progress now.  In spite of the fact that I do not have a VR headset, I could still move around and enjoy the place.  Graphics and sounds are great.  I can't figure out how to change lighting, click on things to sit or dance or anything like that, I couldn't find any other people to chat with, and my av is NOT so hot.  But that's beta for you.  It's a little hard on my computer too and I could tell it was running hot after a while of exploring.  I took many more photos this time in to share and left my av in them for perspective. If you'd like to see them larger just click on them and it will take you to the pic in Flickr where they are big or you can make them bigger.  Sansar has a lot to offer but it still has a long way to go to live up to my SL experiences. I think it is getting there though, but I might have to invest in a better computer and VR headset at some point.  I won't leave my SL behind though and it looks like LL is still very dedicated to SL too with some upgrades and investments of their own into Second Life so have no fear all you SL die hards.. check out this just in....https://community.secondlife.com/blogs/entry/2237-celebrating-14-years-of-sl-with-investments-in-its-future/

Horizons Experience

My friend Will Burns told me about this interesting free quest in SL.  I've been needing to try something different and this fit the bill.  This would be fun with friends, alone, or with an adventurous date. Check out "Horizons" a quest by Linden Labs here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Horizons%20A3/128/128/36

The sim information states: "Welcome to the Horizons Experience! Take part in a five-part series of quests against the clock to help Megallan to save Tyrah from Dr Talpa's evil clutches and have a chance to win fabulous prizes and rewards!"

This quest to free Tyrah includes 5 areas of difficulties to overcome and complete their directives to move on to the next.  You can play in explore mode or play mode.  I was game to try play mode. So, of course I was killed often and repeatedly.  The 5 areas are:
The Canyons
The Mines
The Dark Forest
The Swamp
The Command Center

The area is adult rated.  It's been around since late last year, so I guess I am not quite on top of things. It was fun to try, but I'll have to go back another day to try to finish, as it's getting late. The explanation/set-up, sounds, visuals, actual quest, story-line etc are all great. If you play the game version there is a hud but it works well and they offer them free in many places throughout the game.  I think this may be the best game LL has put out in SL so far.  I can't speak to the prizes as I have not gotten that far yet. You don't have to be premium to play but I've heard you do have to be a verified account, which if you are not a bot you probably are.  My computer is getting old and has lag and issues often, so it was probably a little more challenging than it should be, however I was able to progress and learn from my mistakes too.

From the pics you can see some of the first 3 sections and that of course I was killed numerous times.. lots or tricky killers around.
