These were all plain shots anyone could have taken. No trickery or even changing Windlight settings. My point is this sim looks, outstanding others, good from any angle. To achieve this the creator, while filling only 1 region for activity, used the surrounding sims for the big sklyine you see on these photos.

However I find these photos don' t really do the build as a whole any fair justice. One must simply see it for oneself.

*strikethrough : Well, I did use Windlight on some photos, but with most I didn' t.

Love the touch of green nature in the otherwise steel environment. 

Is the Aquarium empty? I didnt see anything in it last night when I was over there. 

Happy you like it. The two cyber sirens go under maintenance periodically.

I' ve been taking pictures only .. not time much to actually explore or try things.

I do notice signs of abandoment, the rental being one of them.

I think though there is still activity on the sim.

All is still operational. The sense of abandonement is intended in the design of the sim.

That's just.... wow. Of all the ones I've seen that were considered... this one LL should definitely preserve. The aesthetics alone is worth preserving.

Yes, thank you for appreciating. That's all that matters in fact.

You'll find all five sims are populated by buildings, skyline is only in the surroundings.

That's been there for a while. I've seen this a year ago. I thought it was cool to have a bright and colorful club because it contrasts with most of the city. Although inside the club does look different now..

So what is the new business plan?

Whilst their plan A, to ask for the continuing preferential treatment with regard to rentals on a not for profit sim is not that unreasonable, I agree there needs to be more of a plan B than just chuck money at us to help with tier costs. At best that can only be a short term fix.

The month deadline seems perilously close now, because I do think losing these sims would be a crying shame and waste. I am not seriously suggesting this but if Linden Lab took it over, attached it to the waterways connected to Bellisseria maybe near Pyri fair or to Horizons and offered rentals there to Premium members they would be snapped up in seconds. My point is that promoted right the sim could become a thriving and lively community.

Various possibilities are being discussed with the people who are committed, involved and cause in the matter. Thank you for your appreciation.

I doubt they would do that though, the Galaxy was a rental business designed as a 3 sim long cruise ship - while it got preseved it does not do rentals anymore.

That's there since a while and has nothing to do with the possible ending of the city, TD. I think it's more Djehan's philosophy: despite the endless drama queens (butt hurt by her talent and technical prowess) who came to harass her, she remains kind and polite to everyone who visits. And of course you can read it on a more general level as "despite all the trouble in the world, I still believe human nature is fundamentally good".

   Whoever wrote that quote must have slept through history class and never watched the news.

Someone who was in hiding for others at the time with reason.

( And in spite of you saying that, I believe the quote applies to you as well. )

?!?

I daresay this quote needed explination to somebody.  Are you suggesting you can dictate what I daresay in here ? And what is unimportant about faith in others ? That is what this whole thread is about.

You could not be any more mistaken.

It's not TDD123's fault the quote was used in the region, and it's a familiar enough quote that personally I don't see a big problem with its use there. But of course it's not up to me and YMMV. I'd think that in a setting like this, the use may be ironic -- that's certainly how I took it -- but, y'know: art is subjective.

if it stayed a quote ok, but putting the picture in of the war victim is totally distasteful and unneeded.

There .. feel better now ?

 

I start to thnk though this ' nice little core'  of yours is getting somewhat rancid, overaggrevated and smelly. I can point right where it' s at.

Being Dutch myself, I have no problem with someone using Anne's words at all. In fact, should I ever say something as beautiful like that, which can still inspire hope in ppl, and a trust in mankind under such dire conditions, 70+ years after my death, I already, hereby, give you permission to use it. :)

Completely well said Kira!
