365 days of SL, day 232:


(Click for larger — 1920x1033 PNG, 2100 KiB)

Another day, another beach... the one we went to last night had a decidedly post-apocalyptic feel to it, though, not so much due to the architecture and design but due to the stark lighting and the orange plasma clouds rushing across the sky at a high speed. While there was no visible deterioration, the place felt like it had been preserved after some kind of unspecified disaster, maybe a (fictionalized) neutron bomb that killed everyone and dramatically changed the environment, but left the infrastructure intact.

Not inappropriate for Nightmare Night / Halloween, I suppose. (And for all I know, the effect may only have been implemented temporarily for that.)

And even though it probably looks like I'm mistaking the Heimlich manoeuver for the Vulcan death grip here, I'm actually just giving my friend a shoulder massage — one of the built-in animations of the spot we're occupying.

Location: Cougar Caye (30, 33, 25) (Romantic Chill Beach !!!Tribe Islands!!! Romantic Chill Beach)

Ooo, another location I need to add to my "visit sometime" list - and indeed, just did. (Add it, that is. Actually visiting.. @.@)

So that must be an example of the relatively new facility for a region to share its lighting settings automagically, ne? (Though it would be fun to see the Lab push those as the default nighttime settings, for Halloween.. =:)

Heh, I know what you mean, yeah.

Hmm, you mean parcel Windlight settings? I don't think it was that — I think I would've gotten a message about it if it had been that since I don't automatically accept these, but I'm not 100% positive now. Maybe it was that after all.

Though it would be fun to see the Lab push those as the default nighttime settings, for Halloween.. =:)

Yes, in a way, it would be fun... but I'm not such a big fan of that sort of thing. Allow people – residents AND sim/parcel owners! – to do their own thing, or decline to participate in such things at all if that's what they prefer. :)

This is doubly true given that SL has a global audience, and even though LL is a US-American company, I doubt they'd want for their own culture to be overly normative.

I did think it was fun here, though. :)
