Great Second Life Destinations: Lick Sim Design's Asian Fusion - Perfect Harmony of Landscape Design



Sera Bellic scores yet again at Asia Fusion, a gorgeous construction of Asian-themed botanical and architectural design elements with just a touch of fun elements such as the panda family set among bamboo groves. I found the interior of the tea houses with realistic sushi sets very delicious and inviting, and perfect for Springtime photography shots. This is a very relaxing destination to visit and one that you need to catch before the Second Life summer beachscapes set in. Highly recommended.

Photography Information:

I used Windlight Sky Setting -- Annan Adored's Morning Dream in these images.  My version of the Firestorm viewer did not carry this Windlight Setting as an option in Advanced Environmental Editor.



I added Morning Dream and other current settings by Annan Adored by the downloading a Zip File from this location and adding the settings to my Windlight folder. Instructions are carried on the home page of the link.  I like all of the different settings and recommend that you download all as photographic options:

Great Second Life Destinations: The Planets by Caledonia Skytower on LEA 4 - Jupiter, The Bringer of Jolity



Caledonia Skytower has a wonderful art installation on LEA 4 inspired by english composer Gustav Holst's evocative suite of musical tone poems, The Planets.  You are given links to the music for each planet when you arrive and can fine the suite of music here on You Tube. I am running a version of the famous martial music from Jupiter, one of the two most famous movements of the suite, below. Playing the music adds much to a visit.




Jupiter, the bringer of jollity, starts off as a journey through a lighted maze that the visitor must make his or her way through before reaching a festive level on top. Dance and couple animations make for a romantic destination.




Your taxi to the main exhibition area on LEA 4-  The teleport area to each "planet" exhibition is a short walk away from the landing area. Just follow the sign when you arrive.  Jupiter is just one of the 7 "planets" that is open through the end of May, 2017.  Visitors are welcome to leave poetic impressions of their visit.

I thought that Jupiter made a good contrast with Mars, which is a very dark and foreboding world, and one which I reviewed here last month:

I first reviewed Neptune, an interactive aquatic world, here at the beginning of April:
