Great Second Life Winter Destinations: Let It Snow! Returns for 2015



Many of us who remember the joyous snow-covered landscape of Let It Snow! were waiting for its return. This Second Life holiday classic is back, with gorgeous builds, fields and streams, and fun animals including a realistic reindeer herd just waiting to be photographed. I particularly liked the winding fence with snow drifts spanning the landscape, and the glass pavilion where you can play a grand piano or simply dance romantically with that special someone. The falling snowflakes can cause some lag -- however, I found that simply moving graphics down to "high" from "ultra" cleared up most of my performance issues. The realism here is a good counter to the overdone lighting at some other places which, while cheerful, may not seem that natural to many viewers.
