“No.” November 24, 2009

“It’s probably just one of those pauses or hiccups, Hucka D., but I seem to be getting a little tired of Sunklands now. I think I can rejuvenate my interest soon. It’s just that Gaeta seems so refreshing. Small but I can handle more confinement now. And I can downsize.”

(no answer.)

“I know, I know, what about the Blogocube? you’re asking. That’s a distinct possibility… shame to downsize when all the downtime at Xmas is coming up.”

Plant:

*I’m* coming up too. Quite exciting (!)

bb:

Hi Plant. Yeah, I have a feeling you are (smiles).

Plant:

You used Marty, you will use me. Is that it for Sunklands? you’re asking. Is that why I’m here? Just to get to this point?

bb:

That’s kind of it. Sunklands is nice, but there’s really nothing in it. Not sure the ties to Chilbo are strong enough to keep me, long term, on Jeogeot. But that’s where you have all your ties Mr. Plant.

Plant:

Yes. Maybe another one of those hiccups, then, as you said.

bb:

Tube?

Hucka D.:

Hi.

bb:

Hello Hucka D. Plant and I are speculating this may be the end for Sunklands. Or very soon.

Hucka D.:

Let’s see…

Hucka D.:

No.

 

Jeogeot > Gaeta? (Probably Not, At Least For Another Month)

Karoz biking on the Atoll continent, just testing out the roads there. Maybe a bit too cobblestoney for extended trips? Luv the weeds in the road, though.

Baker Bloch a bit south of Chilbo, looking toward a castle just below the corporate limits (Madhupak).

Still in the Chilbo area — small, independently run railroad in Anma. Close but still not affiliated with the famous Jeogeot community. I wonder if they even know about it or would be interested in participating if asked directly? I wonder if I would in the same situation, for that matter?

One of my few complaints about Chilbo so far is that in the newest sections sometimes the red sidewalks are a bit overdone, it seems. Karoz does seem to favor the lower center of the Chilbo sim, where they are not quite as predominant and where normal cement colored walkways dominate. Have to think more about that one.*

Small inland sea of Jeogeot, already visited in this post from _____. Not much around the shores yet…

Then it’s back to Sunklands and the western edge of Big Sink to ponder more the future of The Bakers in this area. Does Sunklands truly represent a “permanent” home for them in Second Lyfe?

*****

* In quickly second thinking about this issue, realize this inside-outside relationship was probably planned. The red sidewalks lie more along the outer limits of the Chilbo community, giving visitors indication that they’re in the town itself. Then toward the very center of Chilbo, the red sidewalks give way to gray or cement colored walkways as a nice contrast — no need to reinforce the signature Chilbo sidewalks, since if one gets this far in they usually know where they are already.

Could be all wrong in guessing this relationship, though.
