There are Limits to Vehicular Courtesy in Second Life

Home of Paine (moderate)

I first encountered the term “steampunk” way back in my early days on the grid. I have since fallen in love with the Victorian version, and seen everything up to and including an Adirondack variation, but who knew there was such a thing as Industrial House Steampunk? (hat tip to Expediente SL)

To be entirely accurate, and fully descriptive, we’re actually talking about “Post-apocalyptic Industrial House Steampunk“. One of the great things about Second Life is that you can throw everything you love together in one big pot and produce a landscape that feels like home.

Transportation is a major theme in this crumbling city and not just because of the crumpled cars, crashed airplanes or unfortunate sea vessels. You’ll find a bi-plane circling the area, a bus, a working train, and a very polite taxi.

The latter stops at red lights and doesn’t proceed again until the change to green.

It’s possible that this efficiency, in the midst of chaos, is enforced by the gun emplacements found on many streets. However, all this firepower didn’t stop the little bastard from knocking my avatar 20 feet into the air just because I was standing in the road while camming around to take photos. :(

  1. Well, omg, I was just thinking, “Where are there wrecked, listing boats in SL?” I’m on a monochromatic, how do you fix water settings, ugly boat wreck jag and all I could find were nice, shiny boats. :) (Any other suggestions for the boats?)

    • try grayscale or a foggy windlight that does something similar – and then open up water settings and play with the two fresnel sliders :)

      • :D Thanks. I need to learn what, exactly, those sliders do. Meanwhile, um…and lol… I was wondering if you knew other sims with beat up, sinking ships. :)

      • oh LOL I’m sure I’ve tripped over some – I’ll just have to think about where :p

    True… on the other hand, there is an excess of steampunk, dystopian places in Second Life…. and tropical paradises… :P
