Are scifi roleplay sims dead?

Recommended Posts

I feel like my statement may be a little rediculous, but a good way to get people to pay attention.

I find myself constantly wondering where to find any sort of freeform scifi roleplay sims. Sure, i've found a few, but they're either overly complex and confusing (Remnants of Earth), poorly made/planned, or just completely empty. Sometimes all three!

I guess maybe I've been on SL too long, but i keep wishing for someplace like old Midian City before the owners kept shoving more and more restrictive rules into everything. I miss the total anarchy that the storylines could be, the rediculous multi-tiered build with catwalks everywhere, and good game-space flow with everyone congregating along the main street so finding a roleplay was easy and fun.

Is this sort of thing just gone entirely? It boggles my mind as a scifi creator that my products seem to sell fairly well despite there being seemingly so few places anyone can actually USE any of it. Or for that matter, that -I- personally could go to have some fun using my own creations.

A nice, compact and beautiful sci-fi sim for RP is 2019-XS http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Ravine/231/128/26 -- seems like it's just getting started and doesn't always have foot traffic, but when people are there they always seem cool and into adventure.  I know some people like Insilco a lot, but I have only just walked around and not interacted much with anyone there.

The fact this place is named after my absolute favorite UT2k4 map tells me alot as is, and looking at the build (albeit very small) I see alot of the things I enjoy here. I'll be sure to check it out again during the day. hopefully people will be on for me to meet folks!

This sim might need a "beware adult stuff in your face" warning sign but otherwise it looks great (and an abbundance of pornography is part of the cyberpunk theme after all)

It does have 'porn' and 'hentai' in the landmark key words. But yeah, it looks pretty cool. Can't tell how much of an RP sim it is though, and how much is just, themed hangout? Couldn't find any rules or anything. Still seems like a cool place.

I know I wouldn't mind a sci-fi place myself. I even told my sister it be kinda cool if someone did a TRON like place, given there are some creators who already have TRON-like items out there. Just maybe not the TRON grid, but still a grid... or you know something like that.

Have you been to Coccoon? I've heard really good things about it. The Star Wars series of sims have a good player base attached to them, too. Then there's Gor... which is technically sci-fi as well although it's kind of in a genre of its own for reasons that I won't get into.

 

What kind of sci-fi world interests you - if you could compare it to a set of novels, tv, or film?
