For TRON fans, here's something that you like.

It's the only TRON themed place in Second Life

It's the TRON Legacy adventures at Vixens Isle

You can ride the light cycle, fly a light jet, or combat in disc wars with your opponent.

There are lightcycles, identity discs, light suits, accessories and such at the TRON Mall and near the End of Line Club

At the End of Line club, you dance with the programs and users with music 24/7. There may be some DJs present at the End of Line Club.

There is a legacy light cycle grid arena at Amber, and below that is the Classic Light Cycle game grid.

Realize that the last time someone had a Tron region they got shut down over copyright issues.  Tron is a registered tradmark of Disney. 

Not saying it will happen but I sure wouldn't use a Linden Labs forum to promote it.

Yes Disney is also pretty pitbullish where their trademarks are concerned, so where other companies may let it slide, I wouldn't expect Disney to, especially after the conniption fits they were seen to have recently at the mere sight of anything that even loosely resembled the sillouhette of Mickey Mouse.

I would think though that if it was billed generically, as in without any mention whatsoever of the Tron brand, and the adherence to the conceptual art and design were loosened, one could get away with claiming it was "inspired by" Tron rather than a "copy of" Tron. I am not a lawyer however, so don't quote me. I just know that in many other cases it was decided that there were limits to how invasive you could get on the copyright of a generic idea, and in the absence of anything that makes something truly one of a kind, copyright has less ground to stand on.

At any rate, the design is very pretty and I admire the efforts gone to while trying for authenticity. Very nice job from the photos! :matte-motes-wink:
