Simploring 2019 (122) A Calas Christmas

There are places I visit regularly in particular during the season. On Sunday, December 8th, I visited the yearly Christmas installation created by Ty Tenk (Tymus Tenk) and Truck Meredith and the Calas team. This year it is called “A Calas Christmas“.

A Calas Christmas – at the Landing sky platform and in the labyrinth

I read Inara Pey’s post “A Calas Christmas for 2019 in Second Life” before I went seeing it myself. For a detailled description I refer to her post. The landing at A Calas Christmas is on a sky platfrom. I got a list of landmarks there, that is very helpful for getting around. Make sure that your avatar doesn’t wear too many scripts, the limit is 100 scripts and as many people want to enjoy the winterly Christmas installation you are help keeping the lag bearable with detaching unnecessary HUD’s. I also got a list of events that will take place at A Calas Christmas.
From the skyplatform you enter a labyrinth that offers a lot of lights, decorations, a chamber full of Christmas stuff and decorations (I think that is what Inara called the “Santa’s grotto”). I had fun exploring the labyrinth. There is an exit of the labyrinth, a portal that leads you to the sim on the ground, but I got lost in the labyrinth *winks* and didn’t find it. Instead I used the landmarks, that I got, to travel to the famous sleigh tour.

The sleigh tour can be made using a sleigh for 2 people or 4 people. I just tried it for a few minutes and got already great views. The sim is just amazing! I will for sure return with Mistress Jenny and make the full tour with her. That became already a tadition for us.

Like last year there’re several possibilities for exploring: the sleigh tour, a balloon tour and a rendeer tour. You can of course explore on foot or you rezz a horse and ride – that is what I did.

As every year there’s a large Christmas pavillion and a large ice skating area. You can dance, you can sit and cuddle, and most importantly you can enjoy. A Calas Christmas is once again a showcase for what is possible in Second Life!

That’s it for the moment. I wanted to write a short teaser so that A Calas Christmas gets the attention it deserves. Thank you so much Ty Tenk (Tymus Tenk) and Truck Meredith and who ever was also involved to make this yearly event available to all of us. I will for sure visit again and see more of it before this year ends.
