APRIL FIELD NOTES
Spring has shown off in the Park for two months already (and finally in RL … for me at least I have even put out some spring flowers, fertilized and mulched for real )
Be sure to bookmark our google calendar and our blog to keep up to date on our live music events and what’s happening in the Park!
With April now on its way, we can officially fill you in on another major change. You know we announced the new open space sim BELEGAER delivered to the Park last month. Just west of that sim, you will now find SEA OF NURNEN completing our sim conversions (We created these two sims when we changed BAY OF BALFALAS to a less costly open space sim). By making the changes started in January, we expect to keep CALAS the unique destination and experience in Second Life it has always been throughout the rest of 2013.
Below are a few snapshots of BELEGAER and SEA OF NURNEN. We hope you will explore them both above and below the surface of the water. We are excited to finally be able to provide more open water for using our boats and kayak. On BELEGAER we have a beautiful new ship complete with a couples dance intan on the deck and a cabin and crews quarters worth exploring. Besides the new vast underwater area of SEA OF NURNEN, a great place for Mer or scuba, you will also find a small island on its western edge to cuddle as you watch the sun set over the sea. At the new sailing ship and on the small island we have provided our guests with transportation to continue their exploration. We hope you will enjoy these two new regions.
THE CALAS GALLERY
We’ve had many inquiries about some of the art we’ve placed in the builds around the sims. We hope you will enjoy the representations of two of our favorite RL artists of the period, Tamara de Lempicka (May 16, 1898–March 18, 1980) and Thomas Hart Benton (April 15, 1889-January 19, 1975) in the new warehouse building, CALAS GALLERY, at the end of Main Street. After having received requests on where these works might be available in world, we are accepting donations on our presentation of them with all proceeds going towards maintenance of Calas. We will be rotating the works as we can. Follow these links to read about the artists:
other notes …
Beginning this month you will start to see us working on Misty Mountains. Again, knowing that this is one of the most popular regions in the Park, we will work to keep the changes to a minimum, retaining the lush wooded feeling of the sim.
For those of you who have still not discovered the new cavern rooms off to the west of the main CALAS CAVERNS on the MIRROMERE sim, I am including a few more snapshots. It is always best to turn your settings to ‘midnight’ when kayaking, boating or exploring the caverns. The main entrance to the new rooms is from the main cavern. There is another smaller entrance across from the Balloon at the Park Entrance.
That’s about it We’ll leave you … as usual … to discover the rest.
Enjoy your Spring!
