Simploring 2019 (60) Kun-Tei-Ner

In April 2019 I visited HoPe, a sunken city, giving us a picture of how the world might look like when humans have left (read Simploring 2019 (49) HoPe). HoPe was designed and created by Fred Hamilton (frecoi) and Lotus Mastroianni. Now Fred and Lotus opened a new place named “Kun-Tei-Ner“. The name sounds Asian but it is a play on the word container.

I came across Kun-Tei-Ner by reading Inara Pey’s blogpost “A water world in Second Life” and of course I had to visit. The landmark description gives an idea what Kun-Tei-Ner is about:
This is a place years ahead of us with no land. Humans have produced a lot of things…and many things are useless in some years. A city grows up on a huge mountain of containers filled with broken technological stuff, abandoned or fallen from ships.

Kun-Tei-Ner overview

Consequently the landing point is on a swimming container from where you can enter the artificial container city. I decided to get an overview first and swam to one of the observation ballons a bit aside from the city. I could climb up and had a nice view from up there.

Kun-Tei-Ner is completely built on containers and with containers. The containers are used for living, for storing, for production, as stores, as restaurants, simply for everything. There are several container islands connected by steel bridges. Finding your way through the container jungle is difficult. I mostly followed the little arrows which indicate which way you can take without ending in a blind alley.

Several of the containers are furnished, some of them very detailed. There are a lot of possiblities to sit down and enjoy the view or to let your mind wander. And there is really a lot to discover. I spent more than a full hour exploring and I haven’t seen everything. Kun-Tei-Ner is getting it’s power from 3 big windmills and from a solar panels. Humans have rescued some pets, I saw a cat in one container. They rescued some plants and used them to make this water world a little bit green – you see ivy growing at the conatianer walls and some roofs are covered with grass.

But there’s still industry. What comes out of the tall smoke stack doesn’t look really healthy. There are pipes and other equipment that look like heavy industry. During my exploring tour I sat down in a pizza restaurant and I visited the food market which is on a seperate container island.

What else? Yes, the shark. There’s a huge shark with a nacelle circling over Kun-tei-Ner. I personally think it doesn’t fit as it is a fantasy element and the rest of Kun-Tei-Ner looks as if it could exist. But it can also be a blimp, so let’s assume that. What made me smile is that I saw two seals taking a bath in the sun on a swimming container. The big billboards are also something to have a second look at. One advertises Skype “connecting the world”. There are many little details to discover and I must have missed most of them.

Kun-Tei-Ner is a facinating place. It has a message and it is build with with a lot of creativity and love for the detail, it has wit, if offers places to sit and retreat, and it offers the opportunity for many hours of exploring. I did enjoy my visit a lot. Thank you Fred Hamilton (frecoi) and Lotus Mastroianni for providing Kun-Tei-Ner and for sharing it with the public!

According to Inara Pey’s blogpost Kun-Tei-Ner was opened on May 19th and might be available about a month. Hence you might visit better soon.

Green Acres by Michiel Bechir

On Monday, April 22nd, I got a call from an artist friend of mine, Michiel Bechir. Michiel’s art deals with pictures taken within Second Life. By editing them Michiel tries to add a personal touch and feeling. I wrote about Michiel already before this year (read Simploring 2019 (29) SH Tutti and Michiel Bechir at Lyric Art Gallery).

Michiel has read my blog post about Green Acres, the sim that provides the three R’s. Rustic. Rural. Retreat, owned by Alsatian Kidd (read Simploring 2019 (47) Green Acres). My blog post inspired Michiel to visit himself and he took a picture quite similar to one I took over there and he edited it. The result is amazing.

Thank you Michiel 🙂

Happy New Year 2019 and some stats and findings about this blog (2018 in review)


In 2018 I succeeded again to have an entry for every day. Blogging daily is a challenge as there’re days with not that much to report. In addtion, I’m not able to write every day due to other obligations and vacation. Hence I always have some posts on stock and I try to pile up a few more, when I’m off got a few days.
In 2018 there were more than 225 diary entries and 110 simploring reports. Over all the blog grew by 376 new posts bringing the total archive of this blog close to 1,500 posts.
As taking pictures is one of my passions in SL and storage space is not free, I also changed the way I publish my pictures and grouped them to save space. When you click the pictures you can see them a bit larger. I also post the pictures on deviant art (Diomita Maurer at Deviant art). There you get the pictures in a higher resultion. In total I took more than 2,500 pictures on Second Life in 2018.

We had more than 53,000 clicks this year, a raise of roughly 15,000 clicks compared to 2017. That’s an average of close to 150 clicks per day. The blog attracted about 10,000 visitors, an increase of 15% compared to 2017. Most clicks came from Germany (15,800), the US (11,600) and the UK (3,200). The statistics show that in total people from over 110 countries visited our blog. Also the number of followers increased to close to 140! Many thanks to all friends, readers and followers.
Most found our blog coming from search engines (8,300), from scoop.it SL Destinations (1,050) (that’s from where I often pick my simploring destinations) and deviantart.com (1,000). Again not only the new blog entries attract readers, there’re also some “evergreens”. Actually no blog post of 2018 was among the Top 5.
The Top 5 Posts in 2018 were

1. Enjoying Bondage June 2016 – June 2016 – 560 clicks
2. Kara Bound – 352 clicks – April 2014 – ranked 1st in 2017
3. The Victorian Corest Story – Part II – 217 clicks – March 2017 (written by slave Flo) – ranked 2nd in 2017
4. Surrender Cove – 161 clicks – October 2016 – also ranked 4th in 2017
5. Enjoying Bondage January 2015: The Bondage frame – 129 clicks – January 2015

This blog contains a lot of memories for Mistress Jenny and me and for the people close to us in Second Life. It started as a little diary to keep up with all the things happening around us in Second Life and has grown with time. In the meanwhile I read back myself often to look up a date or to check if I came across a place already before. The diary entries became also more personal and you could follow how my submission to Mistress Jenny continued to grow deeper and became natural for me, but you could also follow how much I enjoy to have her as my sub, as my property during my green lights. She’s still and will always be owned by me as well.
I still have fun writing and it’s my intention to continue daily, if I find the time for it. Considering how much of our free time in real life is spent in this virtual world it makes sense to keep the memories like you do in real life. The memories are real and they stay vivid and present this way.
That we attract so many readers who follow our ways in SL makes me happy and keeps me motivated.

Thanks again for reading and following my and our blog.
Have a great year 2019 in SL and in RL, stay healthy!
Diomita Maurer

Merry Christmas 2018

We wish all friends and readers of our blog a merry Christmas. Enjoy time with your families in Real Life and in Second Life, just celebrate!

And for all, who haven’t seen yet the yearly christmas installation from Calas Galadhon “A Christmas Midnight Clear” here’s a video of it filmed by Inara Pey with some impressions. Incredible what “our” Second Life has to offer. Thank you Inara!

Diary 2018 (221) December 13th – 16th Back in control

Thursday, December 13th, I met with Jenny in the afternoon. We saw slave Flo and slave Gwen (gwenney), had a round of greedy with slave Flo and we caught up about our mutual news. One hour can pass by quickly in Second Life. And I forgot to take any pictures.

Jenny was not inworld at night. I took slave Flo with me on a shopping tour first. I saw some nice clothes but didn’t get anything, at least I collected some ideas. Then I made a tour through the clubs with slave Flo. We visited Mesmerize Dungeon, Puerto Esclava and Psi’s realm and had fun reading profiles and watching.

December 13th – Diomita with slave Flo shopping and at Puerto Esclava, Mesmerize Dungeon and Psi’s realm / Diomita watching the scenery at club Domme a Domme sitting on Zephaney

After slave Floleft I went to Domme a Domme and I stayed longer there than I planned. Zephaney was there and she was a very comfy seat for me. I watched a scene and had some IM’s – time flew by. And that’s it for Thursday.

I was offline Friday and Saturday, hence nothing for the diary to report. Our Friday night party had to cancelled as Jenny and Virgo were off Friday night as well. I returned Sunday night and I started my night with taking my property to Angel of Pain’s BDSM Island. I teased Jenny, I prepared her for what I intended to do later … and of course we caught up with eachother’s news. It’s good to be in full control.

December 16th: Diomita with her Eheslut Jenny at Angel of Pain’s BDSM Island

I took my Eheslut to club Domme a Domme for a bit to expose her, then we went home to see slave Flo. We had a game of greedy with her and slave slut cecy joined us.

Time to relax and watch people…. we went to Mesmerize Dungeon and made ourselve comfy on our slaves. There was quite some eye candy and Jenny and I had fun. We even saw a Rubber Rocket Doll again, too bad that none touched the rocket breasts as it would have been fun to watch.

Back home and after slave Flo and slave slut cecy were off, I enjoyed my green light, my control.

December 16th: Diomita with her Eheslut Jenny at home

There was more – but no pictures of that part for the diary *winks*. What a full and varied night!

Diary 2018 (197) November 4th/5th Relaxed

Sunday, November 4th, began just great. I had taken control of my property the day before and I found her leashed in the annex of our skybox when I came inworld in the afternoon. Of course I took advantage of my property. What a great way to start.

November 4th: Diomita taking advantage of Jenny, Mine / Mistress Jenny, Diomita and Angelique at home

Unfortunately I had to release her shortly afterwards for two reasons. Firstly I didn’t want to overstep and secondly if I did, it would become even harder to stop control again. We met shortly with Angelique and Jenny was already teasing me again. She was making plans for Angelique and me. But our hour in the afternoon was already over again.

At night Jenny wasn’t inworld and I visited Cica Ghosts newest installation “Rusty” (read here). That was fun! When I returned, Angelique was inworld and we played a few rounds greedy until she had to leave. slave Flo had some technical problems and finally made it online soon after Angelique had left.

November 4th: Diomita at Psi’s realm with slave slut cecy and slave Flo

I took slave Flo to Psi’s again where we met slave slut cecy. It was fun at Psi’s and a lot was going on, hence it was very entertaining. And I had my fun with slave slut cecy *winks*.

Monday, November 5th, was a very relaxed day in Second Life for Mistress Jenny and me. We met in the afternoon and caught up with our mutual news. Mistress did exchange my partnering collar with the sub collar again thus slowly taking back full control. We had a game of greedy with Angelique and then it was already time to return to our RL.

November 5th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita on a tour through “our” Clubs: Psi’s realm, Heavy Bondage Club, Domme a Domme, Dungeon of FDS, Mesmerize Dungeon

At night Mistress Jenny and I were amoung us. We visited our usual clubs, Psi’s realm, Heavy Bondage Club, Domme a Domme, Mesmerize Dungeon, Dungeon of FDS and again Psi’s realm. We chatted, read profiles and had a few IMs. Nothing really happened but it was nonetheless very enjoyable and relaxing. Before we went to bed, Mistress allowed me to spoil her (no pictures *winks*)

An inside look at Get the Freight Out in Second Life

It’s really amazing. After more than 10 years being in Second Life I still learn about new corners of this virtual world. The broad variety of communities and possible activities seem to be endless. Just tink of sailing, flying, building fantasy worlds, art, Gor, fashion, music events, relay of life, history ….
And today I read about Get the Freight Out (GTFO), a popular in-world game among many vehicle users, in Inara Pey’s blog. It’s not that I’m going to try it out, I’m way to busy already with my Second Life family within the BDSM communities and with my simploring activities. But I wanted to share this very interesting blog post about GTFO. Thank you Inara for your very detailed post, which is a real teaser.

Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

Get the Freight Out (GTFO) is a popular in-world game among many vehicle users. HUD-based, it allows players to “haul” cargo from by land, sea or air, point-to-point across the mainland continents of Second life, and over their connected waterways and seas (e.g. Blake Sea). In doing so, players can earn in-game (and non-redeemable) “Goal dollars” – G$ and game experience points which allow them to “level up” through GTFO.

Since its launch, the game has grown to encompass, at the time of writing, over 280 different land, sea and air vehicles, and has over 300 “hubs”- the points at which players use to collect / deliver their cargoes – scattered around the Mainland continents of the grid, presenting players with multiple opportunities for collecting and delivering cargoes, with more being added all the time.

In fact, such is the popularity of the game that many vehicle creators are offering…
