Thirty Sims Visited

Grignano was sim number 30 in my expedition.

A rather spectacular arch dominates the skyline in this part of the city.

Another lighthouse, with a steampunk airship moored alongside.

Saturday, December 26, 2009


Home of Slopco, the Second Life Oil and Petroleum Company. I imagine it's some kind of statement.

South Channel

South Channel is the scene of an amazing haunted insane asylum! This is definitely something you'll want to check out. I spent some time wandering around the disturbing rooms and corridors being spooked by eerie noises.

Luna Palisades

A tiny wedge of land ... there's more across the other side of the strait but it seems bare too.

New Port

I found this nifty submersible at the Jetset Yachts berths.

Bay City - Morton

I stopped by the Bay City Flea Market where you can buy genuine "Linden Cubes".

Bay City - Oldtown

Swing bridge in Oldtown. Bay City has a superb mass transit system. Or should I say "transit system" because there were no masses in sight?

Bay City - Moloch

A strange abandoned industrial building. I examined this map but it did not appear to be an accurate guide to my future journeying.

Twenty Sims Visited

Bay City - Tanelorn was the twentieth sim.

Friday, December 18, 2009

Bay City - Tanelorn

There's not much to see in Bay City - Tanelorn, to the South of Bay City - Imaginario, apart from a small lake.

Bay City - Imaginario

Arrived at the Eastern border of Bay City. Here I am in front of the Molexandria archaeological site which is kind of fun to explore.

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

Bay City - Falconmoon

Further East in Bay City - Falconmoon, another statue of a mole - this one looks important. I switched into some explorer's garb. I'm a firm believer in dressing appropriately.

Bay City - Argos

East again. There are some nice prefab home stores in Argos - Eddi and I bought a new house from one of them belonging to Barnesworth Anubis :)

Bay City - Rollers

I've noticed lots of real estate for sale in Bay City. Headed East from Bay City - Handa to Bay City - Rollers. This is the fancy art deco Bayjou theatre, by the way. They were screening machinima when I visited.

Bay City - Handa

Not much to see in Handa except for a nice pavilion.

Saturday, December 12, 2009

Bay City - Molesworth

The story goes that Bay City was built by moles - this planet model in Molesworth shows Talpidae, which is presumably the mole homeworld.

North Channel

North Channel is the site of a barren island where the Bay City Fair is held.

Barcola Sound

Barcola Sound is even smaller! A mere point looking across toward Shermerville. Here's another lighthouse but even it is in another sim.

Cape Haven

Cape Haven is just a narrow strand of beach to the east of Moose Beach.

Tuesday, December 8, 2009

Ten Sims Visited

Moose Beach was the tenth sim I have explored. This is a slightly abstract chart showing the sims I have visited as green-coloured blocks.

Moose Beach

Moose Beach has all the misbehaviour of an infohub, but it's still a charming beach sim in many ways with lots of nice little details to discover when you explore.

Sunday, December 6, 2009

Battery Passage

Battery Passage is a very nicely landscaped headland, especially for a Mole build. Note: Second Life has a lot of lighthouses. East of here is another infohub at Moose Beach.

Bay City - Moosehead

Bay City - Moosehead, a nondescript section of Bay City. The name "Dalay Park" following on from Daley Bay sim makes me think Bay City could be modelled on Chicago?

Friday, December 4, 2009

Daley Bay

Daley Bay sim is home of the Bay City Department of Sanitation ... and that's about all ... I wonder if it's named after the mayors of Chicago?

Inner Harbor

Inner Harbor is where the railroad track I'd been following meets the Bay City Trolley. The sim has a number of quirky industrial buildings made by the Moles (the build team that the Lindens use for their creations). My favourite is the Kittehwerkz Prim Inspection facility, although I think the LOLcat theme adds nothing to the fun of the concept.

Bay City - Docklands

Bay City - Docklands has an airship rezzing zone for anyone who wants to use the airport in Hau Koda. There's also a balloon tour which I skipped. I crossed the first of the city's canals here, walking across one of the famous bascule bridges. Amusingly, this sim features not only a church to get married in but also a Second Life divorce lawyer.

Hau Koda

Hau Koda, as it turns out, is the site of the Bay City Municipal Airport, and an Infohub (the sim name means "hello, friend" in Dakota Sioux dialect). There are some nice art deco builds here: a large hangar, control tower, and terminal, which includes this globe showing Bay City.
