You can now see our visit to Second Norway on the web!

It’s a chance to see some characteristically Norwegian parts of this region – such as the downtown harbour region, and the fascinating Stave Church – to say nothing of the historically accurate re-creation of a Viking encampment – now put to a very modern use!

But we also were able to see how Second Norway is created by the efforts of an international community – including Esperanto speakers!

Joining us on the show were the co-owners of Second Norway, Ey Ren and Mialinn Telling, and we not only explored the fiords (by boat) but also took a really exciting motorbike ride along a re-creation of the famous Atlantic Ocean Road.

Second Norway, of course, was the Region of the Month in the January 2012 issue of Prim Perfect so, if you want, you can read more there!

We started the new season of Designing Worlds with a retrospective – a visit to the glorious builds of Relay for Life – and also a look at different ways in which people participated in the event. And now you can see this special show here:

We talked to Troy Vogel, winner of the Designer Sim Award, and to Brandon Pappentas, who created the remarkable Babbage Clock and to Crap Mariner – who had a special literary project for Relay for Life.  And we visited a wealth of other places, including the special locations for the Survivors and Caregivers (created by Barnesworth Anubis) and the very striking Mentors Camp – and talking with some of the people behind these. And you won’t want to miss the extract from the gorgeous performance by the Chiang High Trinity Sisters.

They’ll be joined by Sandry Logan of the Virtual Kennel Club who has been involved in the beta testing and development of the Pathfinder technology, and she will be bringing some of her Pathfinding enabled pets as a demonstration.

This is an opportunity to discover what Pathfinding is, how it can be used in your sim for a variety of functions, and some of the amazing effects you can achieve with it. You’ll also be able ask questions of Lorca and Falcon – either at the show, or by posting your question in comments to this post.

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 24th September, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams as we pay a visit to the beautiful – and fascinating – community of Second Norway.

We’ll be exploring some characteristically Norwegian parts of this region – such as the downtown harbour region, and the fascination Stave Church – to say nothing of the historically accurate re-creation of a Viking encampment – now put to a very modern use! But we’ll also be seeing how Second Norway is created by the efforts of an international community – including Esperanto speakers!

Second Norway, of course, was the Region of the Month in the January 2012 issue of Prim Perfect so, if you want, you can read more there!

This is a fascinating study of how a residential community is built, grown and sustained in a virtual world – and has lots of beautiful locations too. So do come and join us at 2pm!
