Little behind in generating text for the Nascera related posts due to holidays and such, but will try to hit as many as possible this week.
Referring to this map now, we start in either Threesun or Blendan nearer the northeast corner of the current Nascera map.
To back up a bit Nascera is the newest Linden made continent of Second Life, offering free Linden designed homes in themed regions for premium members with at least 512 square meters available through their current tier plan. More details here at the official Second Life blog.
Blochs starts on one of the many sims without any houses atall on the continent, which number 18 according to my latest counting. These represent open spaces separating the themed regions talked about in the Linden blog, and also represent the focus of Baker’s mainly biking explorations in the region. He’s very, very excited to find so many open spaces on the new continent, a great improvement over past continent planning, it seems, where you have very few open sims outside of water areas. I hope providing such a large percentage of these spaces per residential/commercial property represents a new trend in such offerings. That would be most excellent!!
Back to the tour: Baker is situated, as I said, in either Threesun or Blendard sims, one of the 6 or so sims providing buffer space between the A-frame region to the east and the California modern region to the immediate west. One of the continuing themes of Baker’s exploring will be the way the unique vegetation of each themed region is often dramatically blended in these buffer regions.
Another really nice touch are the many walls acting as additional separators between the themed regions, most found near the center of the buffer sims, as we’ll keep referring them.
I’ll most likely get into a more detailed study of the various vegetation present in each region. Pine trees dominate the A-frame region, which Baker probably examined the least of any of the 4 themed regions.
Yes, I’m pretty sure Baker is in Sicstric now, interestingly a sim separating the A-framed region from the current border of Nascera and not any other themed region — yet (Linden Labs, as I understand, plan to expand the continent early next year, with more themed regions to be added). The many rocks in the area all appear on the more detailed map of the continent through the Second Life viewing browser, although they don’t show up on the map linked to above (resolution a bit too low).
