Simploring 2021 (24) Wision

For my simploring tour on Tuesday, May 25th, I picked “Wision” from scoop.it SL Destinations. scoop.it SL Destinations is a directory of pictures and blogs about Second Life places, major events, galleries and exhibtions run and filled with content by Annie Brightstar (anniebrightstar). The website was down for a few days and not filled with content for a few weeks, but is back now luckily. Thank you Annie!

Wision is a full region, rated general. According to the landmark description “Wision is a sim in which virtual projects are created for the real world. In this period the sim hosts conferences and art exhibitions, but is available to photographers of the metaverse or to those who wish to stop in its suggestive quiet corners.

Wision is owned by an avatar named valexius who is also founder of the sim group. The empty profile of valexius brings me to the conclusion that it is just an account used to told the sim.
All objects on the sim belong to Mexi Lane, who seems to be the real owner and creator of Wision.

Wision is a very well made sim that offers a lot of spaces for bigger events. The first event area is right at the landing point, a humongous glass sphere at the shore reaching out into the sea. Inside are many big, comfortable chairs arranged to listen to a presentation. Outside is catering and a small wooden outdoor stage.

From there I went along the shore, through an iron gate and go to the only residential house on the sim. It was open and as I found no “private” sign, I dared to have a look inside. The house is named “Mexi’s Atelier” and is nicely furnished inside.

Not far from the house is a large old factory, Wision Factory. Somme walls of the building are completely made of glass and thus there’s a lot of light inside of the building, that has just 2 very large rooms. Again there’s some furniture. One room is furnished for an evening event with a lot of comfy sofas and chairs and nice decorations on the walls opposed to the glas front. The other room is almost empty, but seems to be a multi purpose room with some chairs along the wall and some bicycles, perhaps for team events.

The largest building of Wision is in the center of the sim, a cinema, café and shop. Again it is an old storage house or plant building with a new usage. Inside you find a large event area with many seats for dinner, a bar, many posters of well know films like Hitchcock’s The Birds and Psycho or Federico Fellini’s La dolce vita.
Another wing of the building is home for a shop, yet it is not a shop where you can buy goods. It looks more like a training facility. And there is a bigger and a smaller cinema. A real multifunctional building.

I continued my simploring tour and went to “Valexius’s office”, a nice building built on poles at the shore. The door of the building was open and again I found it nicely furnished inside, a place where you’r like to make yourself comfortable. Not far from is is a small greenhouse with a few chicken running around. I had fun exploring and enjoying the lovely peaceful setting.

Wision offers also a lot of nature, in particular in the area around the tower. here you can hike, relax or just enjoy the nature or the little river that winds down to the sea. Or perhaps it is a area for team events .. who knows? I liked it as a perfect place to take some pictures.

What else? Returning to the landing point I found some nice places to sit and enjoy along the shore and I simply enjoyed the view. Last but not least you can also sit down in the glass sphere and enjoy the views (I did).

Wision is a well made sim that fulfills every probable need for (virtual) team events or conferences. But it is also a publicly accessible sim where you could retreat to and enjoy. I was alone during my visit, no lag, no other visitors.
Thank you Mexi Lane for creating Wision and for opening it to the public while it is not used for events. I enjoyed exploring it.
