The most recent episode of the show is now available on the Designing Worlds website at the Treet TV archives – and can also be downloaded free of charge from iTunes.
This was the show that saw us re-visiting some of the wonderful builds at Relay for Life 2009. Firstly we talked to Aeolus Cleansslate and looked at the wonderful New Babbage campsite, from one of the most inentive steampunk sims in the Second Life world – an imagining of an Exposition Universalle, based upon that of 1889 in Paris when the Eiffel Tower was first revealed. Aeolus Cleanslate explained, how under the Team Captain Breezy Carver, the New Babbage team created this amazing display – and also created the special Mars sim that won the overall prize for best designed sim!
Then we talked to KiVanyel Adria if the Elf Circle, who told us not only about the beautiful build that the Elf Circle had created, but also the full programme of events that the Elves had created to share their community with the wider world. And we spoke with Helena Kiama and Jessie Sinister who were two of the key builders on the beautiful Wonders build, re-creating four of the Wonders of the Ancient World (the ones that they chose were the Temple of Diana at Ephesus, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Lighthouse of Alexandria and the Colossus of Rhodes).
And finally we spoke with Zander Greene and Lauren Thibaud of the Friends Fight Cancer group who had created Anatomica, the most amazing sim, which combined information and a great interactive learning experience about the physiology of cells and cancer – with a fast and furious game where you got to dress in a red suit for surfing the bloodstream and blast cancer cells yourself!
And there was also a stunningly beautiful ballroom in the sky for those who ventured up to 1,500 feet!
Don’t forget, even though our show is now called Designing Worlds, we are still doing our Meta Makeovers, where we bring in a top designer to make over your virtual home or garden!
So if you would like to have a virtual home or garden given the treatment by a top designer, send an email to us at email@example.com with three or four pictures of your home or garden attached, and stating your reasons why you would like a makeover.
And if you know a special place in Second Life that we should really feature on the show, drop us a line too!
