Simploring 2018 (103) Zimminyville

Monday, November 26th, I was up for a simploring tour. I looked up scoop.it SL Destinations and picked Zimminyville as the teaser picture looked great. The landmark description description sounds a bit mysterious “Zimminyville was est. in July 2017. Curfax & Flo had a vision on the land and in the air to create a home on earth as well as on the moon. Please come by to explore. We encourage you to take pictures as you explore Zimminyville.

A home on earth and on the moon? I had to explore it to discover what’s behind it. Zimminyville is a full sim, rated moderate. It is owned and created by Curfax Zimminy and Flo Zimminy (Sweetfloxo).

Zimminyville overview

The landing point is in front of a cosy house. Zimminyville is covered with snow according to the season. I zoomed out for orientation and on the first view it looks like a typical American village in Winter. I began exploring by walking along the road. The village really offers a lot. The residential house right next to the landing point is fully furnished with many details to discover in- and outside.

On my way through the village I saw the big barn and the large drive-in movie theatre at one corner of the village. There’s a gas station, a garage, a small harbour, bars, a windmill, a gaszebo, kind of an observation tower, and a long promenade along the beach with a cafe and several cars and huts that offer food and souvenirs. The village isn’t empty even when nobody is around as mesh figures enliven the scenery.

At the other end of Zimminyville is a train station. You have to go into the passenger coaches. The are fully furnished as well! What really impressed me is that all buildings are furnished and decorated. This way you could explore and discover for many hours.
I spent more than an hour at Zimminyville and I’m sure that I just discovered a small portion. Of course there’re also many places to sit, you could play billard, have a drink in the bar, take a walk on the promenade, or have a look into the garage. Zimminyville is a vintage village, most vehicles are oldtimers and the furniture inside is mostly vintage. I got countless motives for pictures. Really beautiful.

There’s one building, which I discovered already when I zoomed out in the beginning of my visit, that is outstanding and somehow not fitting into the scenery, a modern pyramid with at beam pointing straight up into the sky. On my way exploring the forest around the observation tower and trying to find the way to the pyramid, I found a spaceship hidden in the forest.
And then I entered the pyramid. It is futuristic inside, a real contrast to the tranquillity of the vintage village. In the corners of the pyramid are launch pads leading the “Moon pool”, “Bio Dome” and “Cathedral”. I entered a rocket on the lauch pad with the sign “Moon Pool” – and it brought me to he moon!

Zimminyville part II: While on earth Zimminyville is a place where time stands seemingly still, is is a busy sci-fci colony on the moon. I’m not a big sci-fci fan, but what I saw up there was fascinating and I spent another hour discovering it. The colony on the moon is quite busy. Many more mesh figures than on earth enliven the scenery and provide the impression of a busy environment.
A modern hovering train circles around the colony and there’re two stations where you can enter and leave it. The cathedral is a big building with glass walls and it is what the name implies – a cathedral. The Bio Dome is a big dome that provides the conditions for plants and trees to grow and offers the possibility to enjoy earth nature on the moon.

On my discovery tour I also came to 2 gates where you can enter spaceships, that look inside more like a sci-fi bus and might be used for transporation of people to earth and back to the moon. Most probably the transportation I choose to get there is expensive – but fun! Again, the details are stunning and part of the fun when exploring the Zimminyville moon colony. I just want to mention the FedEx sign or the PanAm sign, the security personal and their uniforms or the really huge cathedral, a building that I didn’t expect on a moon colony, at least not in this size.

What a great sim! Curfax Zimminy and Flo Zimminy (Sweetfloxo) have created two contrary fantasy worlds. Both are highly packed with details and each is an experience for it’s own. For me visiting these 2 worlds within one visit was just overwhelming. Thank you so much for creating and sharing Zimminyville. I like it a lot, Curfax & Flo!
