I went on a little adventure to Toru Enchanted Forest after taking a picture for my fashion blog there. It is wonderfully put together by Wayne NZ, and is based off New Zealand and Hobbits.
It is a densely forested sim with little hobbit homes dotting the landscape, a farm, paths wandering through lush forests, bridges going over ravines and beautiful wildlife. Every detail is in place, down to the lighting. It is also a very welcoming sim, saying in the description that the homes are also open to use for all manner of creatures.
I’m a little late in the game in posting this fantastic sim, but I had to anyway.
The Trash Art Installation by Mexi Lane is one of the more unique artistic places I have seen in Second Life for awhile. As you can see from the photo’s, there are mounds of trash, expertly put together, and with some amazing textures. It is also an interactive installation. You are able to take a bulldozer and traverse the piles, leading to a more immersive effect. I had a lot of fun with the feature.
There is a museum, music, and an area where couples can dance beside water and sparkling trees.
This morning I went to Gates of Destiny, and instantly fell in love with it. For some reason, I am always drawn to either open water/artistic sims and darker themed sims.
Gates of Destiny has so much to take in, you could spend a couple of hours going through it all and looking at all the small details put into place. You can tell that a lot of thought and work went into it. Its great for bloggers and people that like to take pictures of sims as well.
My favorite parts of the sim are the usage of statues. They add so much.
