Snarl



Visit Snarl Here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA13/60/196/3972

The new Linden Endowment for the Arts 6 month artist in residence land grant art sims are starting to open.  Snarl is the first one I've visited this round and found it to be very cool.  It's sort of a messy snarl of beautifully colored fibers or tubular twisty things that you can fall through.  It's big, it changes, its cool.  This piece made by Mac Kanashimi runs now through December 31st.
Size: 256W, 256D, 4060H (meter)
His note states:
"- Snarl looks like a messed up thread, fiber, vine, etc.
- Snarl curls at random in every direction.
- Snarl uses about 5000 objects, 3 prims per object.
- Snarl is four kilometers high.
- Snarl has unique prim colors.
- Lightness has the slowest cycle making Snarl go from light at its tail to dark at its head.
- Saturation has a faster cycle than lightness.
- Hue has a faster cycle than saturation.
- Snarl breaks down at least once a day from tail to head and rebuilds.
- Snarl uses HSL to RGB conversion {1}" 
He has other info. on his landing note so be sure to grab that at ground level and enjoy the build. I made a little video of Kara falling through it.

Fairy Tales Castle

Visit here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Inception/128/128/25

I was checking out the Linden Labs destination guide, and noted one of the editor's picks looked cool so decided to go exploring as it's been a while.  This one is a winner for explorers as its a sim filled with many different areas to find, get trapped in, teleport to either by choice or by random clicking, plenty of freebies, tunnels, caves, traps, play areas, battling dragons, hidden places, treasure, pirates, ghosts, animations, great use of lights and sounds, photo ops and props, a quest, stories, and all fantasy related.  I really did enjoy this one and I'd recommending clicking almost everything.

Their land info. states: "Fairy Tales Castle is open.  Please enjoy exploring the castle and the tunnels.  Be wary of the dragon - he's not to be trusted.  Find the treasures..  Have fun.  This is a homestead sim, please keep your scripts to a minimum. "
The sim and things on it appear to belong to Talya Barzane.

Last Chance Today to Visit LEA14 Wish You Were Here/Next Round Winners Announced

Visit here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA14/209/78/28

 Last chance to visit LEA14 Wish You Were Here. The sim is coming down Thursday evening June 30.  If you visit be sure to go into the airport welcome center and use the many teleport doors to various areas as it beats walking /flying around and takes you to the main specific locations.  Inside the big airplanes is RL photography by SL residents from around the world, some from persons I'm sure you will recognize. The fantasy skybox has two levels the lower level being a fun soundgarden. Lots to see and play on throughout the sim. It's based on making RL/SL connections with people from around the world and learning from each other more about both worlds we live in.  Thanks for everyone whose visited, blogged, took pics, came to events, contributed pictures, and hung out playing games and having fun. It's been fun. HUGE thanks to LEA for this opportunity. I'm looking forward to the next round of builds. (see below)
