Simploring 2017 (78) A Metropolis in Second Life

I went on a simploring tour today and selected to visit a metroplois that is stretched over 3 full sims. There’s a very detailed description in Inara Peys’s blog “Taking a drift through Tokyo in Second Life“. I started my visit at “Morpire City“, which is in the middle of the 3 sims “Morpire City“, “MitsumiTown in Tokyo” and “SSOC“. It takes some time to rezz and to load all the textures, at least it did for me. You land in the heart of a really big city, roads and transport systems block your view when you’re on the ground level. The 3 sims are embedded in a sim surround that provides more skyscrapers.

I began exploring and walked around. You can enter the skyscrapers and discover the inside. There are many bars and cantines and restaurants as you would expect it in a working environment. I was impressed seeing floors of desks and offices like in RL. It is like walking through a design metropolis, as there’re just a few cars and trucks on the streets, there’s no dirt or garbage and most important there’re not thousands of people. The metroplois is sleeping, ready to be taken by the masses.

There are also some nice little corners of quietness, places where you can catch your breath and relax in the middle of this mega city. “SSOC” is the headquarter of the company selling gear for combat games within Second Life (as far as I understood, as I’m not at all into it) and “MitsumiTown in Tokyo” is the headquarter of R2 Fashion. There might be more business coming into this city.

I just peeked in, there’s much more to explore. But I got an impression. Thank you Eripom Moonwall, for providing these 3 sims for us. They are outstanding!
