Podcar Tours, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

In this week’s Designing Worlds, we’re revisiting a popular show from the past, as we tour the Mainland by podcar to discover some hidden beauties.

The show is available on Vimeo at: https://vimeo.com/110869566 or SLArtist at: https://www.slartist.com/designing-worlds-dw-255-%e2%80%93-podcar-tours_0848d012c.html

Or watch it here!

You can also join the special Watch Party (at 2pm SLT on Monday 4th March) in our studio on Garden of Dreams.

Yavanna’s podcars will be familiar to those of you who’ve visited the Second Life Birthday events, and we’ve talked to her before about the tours she has created – but this time we’re going to be trying out some of her mainland tours for ourselves, with Yavanna as our expert guide!

We actually try out three tours: the first taking us to Sansara Seas and Rivers, one of nine tours available from Yavanna’s podcar hub on the Sansara continent; a fascinating tour on the little-visited teen grid (where the podcar turns into a ski lift – and then grows a ski to take us back down the mountain!); and a trip round the islands of north western Maebaleia on the Southern Nautilus tour, one of two tours on the Maebaleia or Datori continent. And we also take a look at a fascinating railcar tour on the Heterocera continent!

Yavanna is a keen proponent of the mainland and she shares with us some of the extraordinary creations you can see on her tours, and learn more about the work that not only residents have done, but also that Linden Lab has done – and continues to do – in making the mainland an unexpectedly fascinating – and often beautiful – place to visit. And to help you discover more, you’ll find maps at each starting location that will help you discover further tours to try.

Join us today – for a show that will really open your eyes to the extraordinary Mainland!

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – wherein we sample some of Yavanna Llanfair’s amazing podcar tours … and discover some of the hidden beauties of the mainland – is now on the web.

We actually try out three tours – and here are links for you to be able to take the tours for yourselves!  The first took us to Sansara Seas and Rivers, one of nine tours available from Yavanna’s podcar hub on the Sansara continent; the second was a fascinating tour on the little-visited teen grid (where the podcar turns into a ski lift – and then grows a ski to take us back down the mountain!); and finally we took a trip round the islands  of north western Maebaleia on the Southern Nautilus tour, one of two tours on the Maebaleia or Satori continent. And we also took a brief look at a fascinating railcar tour on the Heterocera continent – which would allow you to start exploring Second Life railways! But don’t just confine yourselves to the tours we took – there are many more fascinating areas to be discovered.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we explore the fascinating and diverse mainland community of East River – is now on the web.

The East River community is located on the Sansara Continent, just to the North of the Sea of Fables, and it’s a remarkable place – and a remarkable achievement too.

Because what makes this community so fascinating is that it’s not part of an island estate, privately owned and managed with a Covenant to make sure that there is consistency. This is a mainland community, created by residents coming together and protecting a tract of land that now covers nineteen sims, all brought together as the East River Community.

With the assistance of a longtime resident, Drewski Northman, we explore some of the residential and commercial areas, the art that forms an important part of the community, and aome of the amazing transportation systems that link the community.
