|Pero - wow! classy oldschool-psychedelic-science-fiction-feeling!|
As long as there was a road things went pretty smooth. The Landscape east of Bear wasnt too spectacular but at least I encountered nothing which could have hurt my aesthetical feelings. But suddenly:
|Maquapit - no - not again!|
For reasons I cannot really understand the people in that area have a great affinity to security orbs or - even worse - banlines. I really wonder what these people are afraid of... as If someone could steal their TVs there!
Peacefully exploring these spots by bike quickly become a real pain: Avoiding this, avoiding that, running away from security orbs - and desperately trying to find a passage all through that. Oh and of course they put plenty of no-script-zones there as well - perhaps to ensure to kill every bit of joy while travelling through their land.
I rarely appreciated finding the road again like I did this time. And they even had some interesting places at the roadside:
|Winyah - a... bughouse?|
|Enjoying a moment of enlightenment at Hennepin - forgetting all profane things...|
|... or not: a - grill???|
|Hennepin - sometimes sim-crossing can go awfully wrong.|
|Hmmm... a shrine for a local deity I assume.|
|Frontenac - this looks familiar. Btw: this picture took me an awfully long time to take. Its hard to find a place around that tower which isn't either blocking your way with a banline or disturbing your vision with huge and ugly rotating spheres.|
After somehow managing it to find a rezz-zone and maneuver myself back to the road (needless to mention there are way too many banlines and no-script areas) another suprise did await me:
|Wrong turn at Whitlock - they MUST be kidding!|
|No - they aren't! My decision to follow the road underwater wasn't the best at all. But alas - I can't ignore my curiosity...|
|Aswan - logically this place is called Sutherland Abyss!|
The Abyss quickly turned into a real lag purgatory. And again, the landscapers managed it to put it that elegantly at a sim-crossing that I literally crashed various times while trying to drive back to the surface: Gaining height, getting into the sim-crossing, falling through several sims, getting back on the road eventually just to fall back into the sim-crossing... etc.
Sometimes I just want to rub some faces on the floor...
After getting finally out of that "Bermuda Triangle of Lag" (lets agree on calling the whole sim complex Hennepin-Frontenac-Whitlock-Aswan this way) I headed flatout to the west... far far away from that doomed spot.
I finished todays stage with arriving back at the Isabel Infohub after an uneventful but comfortably fast ride.
