365 days of SL, day 130:

Despite what you might reasonably expect, not all the vehicles on the Linden Roads are life-sized (more or less, anyway); some are comically diminutive, too, like this little vintage car (a "Oui Coupé" by Curio Obscura) that was tirelessly chugging along, obviously long since used to curious gazes from passers-by such as moi.

As you may have guessed, this was on Route 12 again — the look of the road itself gives it away; it's quite different from the others I've seen so far, e.g. Route 9. Of course, it was built by a different person, too: whereas Earthy Mole is responsible for pretty much all the public building I've seen on Jeogeot so far, Route 12 appears to be due to Abnor Mole. (Get it?)

Route 12 seems to have a lot of vehicles on it, too; I barely crossed three sims last night, getting closer to the junction of Route 12 and Route 12A (which, technically, is what I'm on here), but I encountered at least four vehicles: the "Oui Coupé" (oui... get it?), a small truck (already visible in the background above), a school bus and a military tank. Amusingly, that last one seemed to be the least resilient and most error-prone of all these vehicles: I came across it soon after it'd passed me again, but this time it was being hurled in the opposite direction next to the road at a high velocity, perhaps due to a sim crossing gone wrong or something similar.

The pillar on the right side of the road in the above picture is due to these constructs, BTW:

I have no idea what purpose these served or what they're supposed to represent; for all I know, they might even be a graphical glitch, an inability of my viewer to properly render something, but I'm not aware of any functionality it's lacking. Things like mesh etc. are all supported, so maybe these really are supposed to look like that, whatever they are.

Location: Keepdown (103, 144, 51) (Route 12A)
