365 days of SL, day 300:

Since it was the 300th day of this project last night, I thought it appropriate to visit an Ancient Greece-themed sim (for no other reason than that there was some sort of movie or other a few years ago). :) I found a nice one, too, called "Melita Insula": Latin for "the island of Malta".

I didn't really spend a whole lot of time exploring it, both due to time constraints and because there were people there who I didn't want to disturb, but I got a few pictures anyway. The above is one of my favorites, showing a section of the village I went through.

Here's a view of the harbor where I arrived. I felt a little underdressed – "Greensleeves" probably isn't very fitting for Ancient Greece –, but fortunately there was noone there who would've chastised me. :)

Here's another view of the harbor. Yes, I brought my plane, as usual. ;)

This is the same screenshot already featured separately above, of course; a view of part of the village, with a well, palm tree and houses. I have no idea if ancient Greek architecture actually looked like this, but it did look very good.

Looking up towards the temples and ampitheater whither we went.

A bit of a climb, but it was warm and sunny, and what's nicer than a little hike in good weather? :)

And here we were. Unfortunately, I'd forgotten to reset my "maximum # of particles" setting (it was still at zero), so the particle effects that should be in this scene (e.g. the fire in the fire bowl in the small temple in the middle of the shot) aren't there. Ah well.

You put your left foot in, you put your left foot out... in, out, in out, you shake it all about... you do the hokey cokey, and you turn yourself around. :)

And that concludes the tour of the island of Malta, for now.

But wait, there's more! Have a guest screenshot that was submitted by moth_wingthane, who also suggested the "guest screenshot" feature to begin with:

Here's what he said about this one:

I love the perspective. It makes it look like you've suddenly gone macro and looking to see which piece of the city to stomp first. :D Schneezilla! :D

I don't have anything to add to that — my lawyer has advised me to refrain from making any comments on the pending case for aggravated destruction of public property. :)
