A few nights ago several members of the Bay City Alliance visited Mount G’al (SLurl), a prominent (pun intended) volcano on the Mainland and sacrificed a few avatars. Sadly, I wasn’t there but I visited the next day and posted a few pics on MySL (here, here, and here for a few). The Linden Department of Public Works (LDPW) has a thing for volcanos. I’ve previously mentioned the one at the Zebrasil Infohub (Web), the only erupting volcano that I know of in Second Life. Here are some pix of another one that I know about, discovered by my brother and the place where he always logs out his alt. It is Okeanos on the Coastal Waterway (SLurl).
|Looking into the caldera. I have to admit I used a special Windlight setting to make this more dramatic. The volcano is nowhere close to being dangerous and you can even safely climb down to the lava dome.|
|Of course, this view is more dramatic, too, but if someone puts a diving board out at a volcano, I have to walk it.|
At the base of the hill is a little shack and a rotting boat dock. Who knows why the LDPW builds these little places. I’ve even seen whole villages built up and not used by anyone. And by “anyone” I mean it is so rare to find anyone around that I wonder if all these sites are a waste of resources. It would be nice if non-premium accounts were allowed to set such sites as their home spot.
I mean, who wouldn’t want to live here?
