Great Second Life Destinations: Saying Goodbye to Enchantment Island



BambiTwice Nitely's Enchantment Island, a well known Second Life destination will be closing unless additional funding can be found. The island is home to over a dozen attractions which are shown on the map on the bottom of this post, including the Museum of Surrealism and Museum of Illusions.



I found the attractions on the island, while content-rich, to be somewhat dated visually. In addition there is much clutter with many boxy objects and signs. This is what Second Life looked like 6 years ago. Although I am not sure if this has anything to do with current business, it is important to keep attractions visually up-to-date. I am not recommending that every attraction use mesh construction and high resolution textures, but in a multiple destination environment, regular visual updates will ensure that new fans are constantly brought in.




This is a highly recommended place to visit before (and if) it closes simply to take in all the great content, and see a part of Second Life history that could be lost forever. Please remember to contribute if you enjoy your visit.
