OK I’m mad at myself. I had been fussing with graphics levels to handle a high lag area and forgot to adjust my photo settings before I took these shots of Neva River↑. I’ll go back later and indulge myself but in the meantime you’ll just have to trust me that this region looks much better than my images would lead you to believe.
The sim, owned by Atteris Amarth & Neva Crystall, designed by Wendy Xeno (owner of HuMaNoiD ) and Neva (interiors) is absolutely stunning. I stayed with the region default windlight and it’s a nice complement to the landscape but you could have a lot of fun experimenting.
I didn’t go back and redo these photographs because I had to try and complete a special project this morning. Traditions are one aspect to building and maintaining a community – I think they make you feel like you are part of the whole and, in any case, we all seem to enjoy celebrating milestones.
With that in mind I returned, as I always do on this date, to Alpha Point↑. No matter how it changes it is still one of my favourite locations on the grid. It may be one of the odder traditions↑ inworld but I don’t feel right unless I go through the exercise.
If you don’t believe me, search for Poppins Challenge and you’ll find many pictures from over the years (Raul’s↑ from 2008 is one of my favourites but Dale↑ is an expert as well). Now if you’ll excuse me I’ll go get some first aid. Those rocks don’t make for a soft landing.
