365 days of SL, day 137:

We went back to that estate that we've already been to on day 135 and day 136 again. It's comprised of 15 sims in total, with about half of these forming the larger landmass we've been on; all of it is military-themed, and last night, there was active air combat going on, too, including bombs being dropped, which is what you can see the aftermath of above.

See what I mean about SL's lack of realistic physics being a good thing? :)

Despite the bombs really just being a visual effect (disregarding effects on objects specifically scripted to react to them), the above screenshot was surprisingly difficult to capture; the smoke is a particle effect, I think, and it usually dissipated before SL actually loaded the textures — which I believe then caused the loading to be aborted, so it still wouldn't be there next time you got a bomb, either. A perfect example of good intentions having an unintended negative effect, I think.

I also got a couple of screenshots of the combatants, but unfortunately the helicopter of one of them consistently failed to render properly, and as such, none of the shots looks look very good. Ah well.

Location: Undine Shore (13, 10, 27) (Olds AFB // Soviet Base)
