Great Second Life Destinations: Animated GIFs from the Apocalypse at LICK Sim Designs "The End of the World as We Know It"



Post-apocalyptic regions are a favorite theme in Second Life for sim design and role-play. Sera Bellic's stunning new build for LICK Sim Designs, The End of the World as We Know It, takes the apocalyptic theme one step further and lets you actually witness the destruction of life as we know it.

A burning sky and violent fiery meteors pelt the earth and leave total destruction in their wake. Hordes of vehicles have tried to leave the city to no avail, burning care wrecks dot the highway leaving the scene. Look up on the horizon and see an airplane on fire after it was hit by a boulder-sized meteor and has crashed into an apartment building.  Watch it, or the fiery meteors just might hit you!




This is a great destination and a wonderful showcase for Sera's design talents. You will arrive on a very rainy and stormy ocean pier -- which you might want to escape back to after experiencing the incredibly high temperatures of the hellish vision in front of you. This is a must-see destination, and one that has many great photographic opportunities for the inner demon inside of you.  Make sure to visit.
