Great Second Life Destinations: Winter at Crestwick Island



Crestwick Island is a very attractive and realistic virtualization of a mid-twentieth century North American town. The location of Crestwick could be off the Coast of Maine or British Columbia, or anywhere where green coastal mountains crash into the sea. The scale of the build, most notably the relationship of trees and plant life to physical buildings, is one of the best I have even seen in Second Life -- trees in particular can be far too big to be believable. Crestwick manages to get this and other elements of virtual town design right.




The interiors and furnishings of the building, particularly the coffee shop near the landing area which SLurl is giving below are particularly well done. In fact just about everything in Crestwick Island is. This is a must-see destination which takes it place as one of the best in its genre. I highly recommend you visit - especially now, that the island is frosty and covered in gorgeous white drifts of winter snow.
