Simploring 2019 (71) Groove One

I visited Groove One of Friday June, 7th. I found the landmark on scoop.it SL Destinations.

Groove One is a full adult sim owned by Desterac LXIX (desterac laval) who says about himself “Music is my Mistress. And she is a very demanding bitch“. He’s a DJ in several clubs. More about him and his music can be found in his profile and you can listen to his own compositions at https://soundcloud.com/groove_one.

Groove One – Overview

Groove One is a weired sim. I found no theme, no real idea what it is about. Some spots look clean and neat and invite you to stay, others are just dirty. Nothing really fits together. I found several spots for events, one of them is hoovering above the motel.

The sim is very full and obviously takes a lot of ressources. I couldn’t turn on shadows and even with no shadows my frame rate dropped below 2 fps sometimes. Textures did load slowly if at all. The vegetation is rich and Desterac also used light effects.

There’s a complex of Mediterrean houses and a Mediterrean villa and both look inviting. There’s a colossus at one corner of the sim, a big rock with attached houses, a church which carriers another church on the top of its curch spire, the broken head of the statue of liberty, two sailing ships, an old BMW isetta, an Elvis rock club, dancing models, a board with sexual warnings (right at the landing), a piece of art by Mistero Hifeng (che ci importa del mondo), an old railroad engine where you can walk in, elements from cities like a subway entrance, residential homes (even furnished nicely), swimming pools, several beaches, the bridge suspended on three balloons (which I saw on several other sims already), boats and a harbour, animals, and and and ….

That nothing fits, that there is no connecting element, no theme, that it is just an agglomerate of items and buildings collected with time (a lot of nice stuff by the way) is the connecting element. It is what makes Groove One outstanding and an interesting place to visit. Or maybe I just didn’t get the key to it all? I think my pictures provide a first impression of what to expect.

Anway, exploring was fun and there’s still a lot that I didn’t see yet. As it is an adult sim I summoned Emmi (rileylynch) and had her accompany me. Hence we both could speculate what Groove One is about.

Thank you Desterac LXIX (desterac laval) for sharing your place with the public. I enjoyed exloring parts of it.
