Nascera Expansion, 01 February 5, 2010

Filed under: Nascera Continent — baker Blinker @ 6:14 pm

On a tip from the ever expanding, ever-so-handy Tyche Shepherd New SL Sims thread at SL Universe, I learned of new, huge chucks of land on the embryonic Nascera continent, immediately to the west of the original 64 sims. I was eager to teleport over and snap some pics, but unfortunately I forgot to uncheck my “Show Attachments” box after taking the first photo below. So although they are a bit bespoiled in this manner, I decided to show what I took anyway, just to give the curious perhaps a kind of first peak.

One of the things I quickly noticed were elevation changes within the house groups themselves in the expansion area. For the original 64 Nascera sims (that 8×8 square of sims I’ve talked about quite a lot already), there are hills in the park area between the themed regions but none within, save a couple of little hillocks in the courtyards between the houses. Now the houses themselves are on hills. You can see several tiers of such hills below.

Again, I’ll take some better pictures of this effect when I have time.

From what I can tell, it looks like about all the houses of the new area are Japanese themed, continuing the themed region on the west side of the original 64. But I also discovered this slice of new fantasy themed houses. On the map, looks like this is going to directly join the original fantasy themed region, making, for now, a kind of overall peninsula in the center of the continent.

So my guess is that there will be new land being soon created in other compass directions away from the core 64, extending themed regions on all sides. If this comes to past, a question exists on how the central California modern region will expand, since it is currentlyl enclosed on all sides by other themed regions in the old square of the continent. I suppose the question will be answered soon enough.

I’m also, of course, curious to see what new mythological elements manifest on the bottoms of the new water areas. 🙂

Decisions Made…

Filed under: Big Sink,Pink Floyd/Syd Barrett,SID's 1st Oz,Sunklands,Uncategorized — baker Blinker @ 8:00 am

So I think this is what I’m going to do. I’m keeping both the larger Aotearoa property (7680) and the 2 Pudding Hill 1024 parcels I rent from Lama Estates. The 3rd, highest parcel in Pudding Hill must go. *So* will the 1024 Yd Island parcel — that was a tough decision, but as of today I went ahead and moved the SID’s Place structure there over to the higher of the 2 remaining Pudding Hill parcels, renaming the parcel itself SID’s Place (SID’s 1st Place?). And, yeah, I like it better in Big Sink (!)

Very pleased with these decisions, but lordy lordy, I’m really stuck in Sunklands now. “As it is written,” is what Hucka D. might insert here.

So Sunklands Central will be in *Pudding Hill*, or remain there. I’ve also deleted the Pieland/Big Island related photos from the duplicate Sunklands Central in Aotearoa. Must make additional, more minor decision about what pictures to hang in the empty house now: more Edna photos?; pictures about Yd Island? More about Sunklands itself, maybe geared more to Aotearoa, Otaki Gorge, and Peter the Good/Piedmont/Peter’s Mound?

Hucka D.:

Your friend Flynn is taking Piedmont into a tangent world. Good you explained [delete name] to her. We must speak soon about the cross made between the 10×10 and the Big Carrcasses. 2004-2009. You are entering a different space now. Jeogeot, (and further) Sunklands. You are a Sunklander through and through now. Time to act upon it. Acting.

bb (noticing Hucka D.’s hand):

Where did your pollen ball go, Hucka D.? Your hand is human-like now.

Hucka D.:

Oh, that’s been gone for months and months and months. *You.*

bb:

Sorry.

Hucka D.:

I am excited about starting anew the SID’s 1st Oz interviews. You have SID’s Place all set up for us now. We will start with Yd Island in that discussion. Review all you can… prepare. You have some time this weekend obviously.

bb:

Snow’s already coming down, Hucka D. Then ice tomorrow, then more snow tomorrow night and Saturday. What a bloody mess!

Hucka D.:

At least Jeogeot and Sunklands is lean and green.

bb:

I’ve sunk into Sunklands, Hucka D. Have I gone native?

Hucka D.:

No. You’ve had to do what you’ve had to do…

bb:

The Big Book again… Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Yes?

*****

bb:

Can we prepare a bit more for the SID’s 1st Oz interview tonight?*

Hucka D.:

OK. Insert a picture of SID’s Place here, please.

bb:

Alright.

INSERT PICTURE HERE.


SID’S Place, Pudding Hill. Big Sink below.

bb:

OK.

Hucka D.:

Y City will be Y. The mobius triangle at the center of SID(‘s 1st Oz) will be grounded by The Bee that is all wound up and ready to go. Yellow… ground… golden yellow. Y City is the 11th city visited in (Harington’s) Let Us Build Us A City, and Golden City the 12th. He met someone from Waters or Pine Ridge while in Y City. Review that. It was me.

bb:

Alright… to clarify, you’re saying you somehow manifested yourself inside Harington’s book and claimed to be from Pine Ridge.

Hucka D.:

… or Waters. That’s the beginning. From Waters/Pine Ridge you move, gradually, across the county (Montgomery) to the 36-Square again, and Rubie and Silver. And also Joplin (smiles). Joplin is the missing piece, the unnamed population place on the side of the (Rubi) Temple.** We’ll take a look at that map as well. We’ll have pictures this time for the interview. It can be a part of this blog if you wish. We will also review Pencil Bluff and Sims. And the Rubi Diagonal. And of course TILE. TILE manifested itself quite clearly to you in Rubi. You must go back sometime. SID is from there as well.

bb:

I remember!

Hucka D.:

SID declared himself by overlapping two Syds in one. SID wanted his own Oz, and he got it by devolving TILE to Tyle, simultaneously raising himself from Syd to SID. Waters’ songs are broken within the synch, replaced by Syd songs. Or SID songs one could say. This is SID’s 1st Oz. He was not a part of Pink Floyd when they created Dark Side of the Moon. Pink Floyd had their own Oz (Dark Side of the Rainbow) but not Syd Barrett, since he was kicked out of the group in 1968, a full 4 years before Dark Side.

bb:

It seems that Syd… or SID, sits at the end of the row of 4 artists in the synch, or, in order, Jethro Tull, Queen, Waters (Geesin), then Syd and Floyd. The only Floyd songs in the synch are by Barrett.

Hucka D.:

Study up on Rubi within the blog. Good night!

bb:

Same to you, Hucka D. Thanks!
