I am pleased to announce that the Lighthouse Board of Second Life now has a location to call home. In a beautiful region known as Victoriana, a harbour lay open to the sea on the west. The creation and display of lighthouses and lighthouse keeper gear is located in a victorian warehouse here. Come visit if you love lighthouses! (more…)
I first built Orient Point in early 2007. A simple low prim affair, it was nearly as narrow inside as to restrict movement and visibility for the avatars, and generally not as realistic as I would have preferred. It was, however, a significant light, deserving a representation in Second Life™ as a prop, to be viewed from afar, on the virtual waters of the SL Grid. This revisiting took advantage of the improvements in the SL build kit available, and the experience of building other lighthouses, most recently Montauk Point, in high detail and accuracy.
Below is a sampling of pics from the new Orient Point Lighthouse, version 2, placed in the Kiku*Craft workshop appropriately named Orient Point. SLURL: http://slurl.com/secondlife/orient%20point/120/15/22/
