Diary 2020 (133) September 20th/21st In Angelique’s shoes (II)

Sunday, Spetember 20th, Mistress was prevented from coming inworld during the day. I went visiting a new gallery in the morning, the new DixMix Gallery and spent almost 2 hours there and I wrote the report about it right away in the afternoon (read about the gallery here)

At night I changed into another outfit, that was originally created as a mix and match outfit by Angelique. She must have peeked at me because when Mistress came inworld and Angelique and slave Flo joined us, Angelique was dressed exactly like me. What a suprise! And of course I took a picture of us. slave Flo had had a busy Sunday and asked for a game to wind down. We played skipee as teams again. Just like the night before slave Melissa came inworld while we were playing and she knelt silently at Mistress’ and my feet while we played.

slave Flo went to bed and Mistress, Angelique, slave Melissa and I went to Heavy Bondage Club. We read profiles, teased slave Melissa, talked and enjoying being together. Angelique left to bed inbetween. Mistress and I continued teasing slave Meli a bit and left ourself not long after flotime.

Monday, September 21st, I was inworld in the late morning, I had seen a picture of a new installation named “A Thousand Windows” at RioSisco Flickr group. RioSisco Productions that are Fred Hamilton (frecoi) and Lotus Mastroianni, the builders of many very exciting sims. The last one was “Summer in the City”, which I visted several times (read here). Long story short, I went there right away and oversaw that Mistress Jenny was inworld. We said hello shortly but she had to leave to tend to her RL. I went to “A Thousand Windows” and really enjoyed my visit there although I had a few interruptions. If you missed it, here is the simploring report .. Simploring 2020 (64) A Thousand Windows.

In the later afternoon I met with Mistress Jenny again. We caught up quickly, then I had to strip and serve Mistress and I got my fix this way. We went to Psi’s realm and later to Heavy Bondage Club and enjoyed being together in particular as Mistress was not inworld at night.

I spent the night with Angelique and slave Flo. Angelique was dressed similar to me again. I met her at the house, where she was cleaning, and I helped her so that it was done quickly. slave Flo joined when we were done. We started with two rounds of greedy as I thought slave Melissa would join us but she didn’t appear that night. I went with Angelique and slave Flo to “A Thousand Windows” and further explored it while showing it to them. We found a way to get on the roof top of one building. That provided another view.

After that quick visit we went on a tour through the clubs. We went to Dark Butterfly, BDSM Lifestyle Swingers Club and Mesmerize Dungeon. We chatted and looked good (SM = Stand and Model). Angelique went off to be a bit before flotime and I went off shortly after flotime.

Simploring 2020 (64) A Thousand Windows

I wasn’t really up for a simploring tour this morning, I just looked up scoop.it SL Desinations to check if there’s something new and interesting. The second newest entry was named “A Thousand Windows” and was just referring to a flickr picture of RioSisco Flickr group. RioSisco Productions that are Fred Hamilton (frecoi) and Lotus Mastroianni, the builders of many very exciting sims. The last one was “Summer in the City”, which I visted several times (read here)

I decided to go there on the spot. The landmark description gives an idea of the intention for this new installation: “There is a huge world out there, but what happens behind all those windows? what lives and worlds are hiding there? How many eyes peer into the fleeting reflections of so many lights? How life is going … obs….try night time

A Thousand Windows – overview

A Thousand Windows is built in a skybox belonging to an adult reagion. It is made up of just about 5,000 prims. After I landed at “A Thousand Windows” I first zoomed out to get an overiew. I made the overview from several angles so that you can see how the installation is made up. Once again Fred and Lotus used the possibilities of Second Life to create a real urban feeling. They do this by selecting perfect background textures and enhancing them.

Impressions of “A Thousand Windows” (1)

I begin exploring “A Thousand Windows” and was soon lost. Only the ground level and in some areas the 2nd and maybe 3rd level are accessible. There are many entrances, even with stairs, but they are just facade. Mainly your wander around on the ground level and you can look up. But you get really enough to see here!

Impressions of “A Thousand Windows” (2) – The 2 pictures on the left were taken 2 different windlights “midnight” and “midday”

It is a dirty town, waste and garbage tons and dirt is everywhere. Many raceways and advertisings distract your view. There are shops, restaurants, tea houses, barbers, food stores and all what you’d expect in a town. Some of them are accessible, others are just furnished to provide the 3D feeling. The main upside of all thes advertisings is that they offer orientation. Getting lost in all the passages and backyards I went countless times to the same spots … the advertisings gave me a bit of orientation.

Impressions of “A Thousand Windows” (3) – some corners are really not inviting to stay long

A Thousand Windows” … Well I didn’t count but there might be a thousand windows, at least on the background (I guess a bit less though). The background is not just a texture. Fred and Lotus enhanced it with mesh objects, mainly drying clothes, balconies and awnings. And you find also many windows inside of the town at higher floors of the buildings. A few windows on lower floors are opened and you can look inside. Again these rooms are furnished for the effect but not accessible.

Impressions of “A Thousand Windows” (4) – looking inside

I managed to get beind the facade of one building and to get a view from inside of a flat to the town. That’s funny at least for the picture where you can see me behind the window.

Impressions of “A Thousand Windows” (5)

As mentioned exploring “A Thousand Windows” is mainly done by wandering on the ground level and by looking at all the different stores and details. You get into very dirty backyards, places you wouldn’t feel safe at all (at least I would never go to such places in RL!). But exploring it and seeing all the little details is great fun.

Of course I also turned the windlight to “midnight” and yes, it does change the experience a lot. I can only recommend to try that. But for taking pictures that provide an impression of what you can see here, the daylight is simply better – for the atmosphere “midnight” is the better choice.

I’m pretty sure that this visit to “A Thousand Windows” was just a first peek at it for me and I will return to it. Once again Fred and Lotus created a masterpiece of creativity. Thank you a lot!

Simploring 2020 (51) Summer in the City

Once again I found my simploring destination for Thursday, July 23rd, on scoop.it SL Desinations.

Summer in the City was built by Fred Hamilton (frecoi) and Lotus Mastroianni, who call themselves “Riosisco Productions”. It was built on the same parcel where they had erected “A Favela”, which I visted in May (read here) and which is gone now. Back in 2019 I visited their creations HoPe (read here) and Kun-Tei-Ner (read here). And now .. “Summer in the City“.

Summer in the City – overview

The landmark description is short: “At the top of the buildings, the Sun is shining, it’s summer in the city.” There’s also the remark that you can’t access the streets in this installation. Fred and Lotus also write in their note that they were supported by Alexa Maravilla in every of their projects, yet they didn’t reveal in which way.

On scoop.it SL Desinations, I also found a video of Summer in the City. I watched it before visting myself and it is a really nice teaser. The video was made by Randonee Noel and published on flickr here.

Summer in the City consists just of a few blocks of high-rise buidling. The landing is inside of one on a staircase and you have to move upstairs and then to the left to go outside. There you begin your exploring tour using stairs, ramps, old railroads for an elevated train, ladders or blanks – yet no way to enter the street level. But that is intended.

Impressions of Summer in the City (1) – landing and first views

In- and outside is a lot to discover: penthouses and roof terraces, balconies, kitchen gardens, a café, a club, an atelier, several living rooms, and innumerous graffities. Of course you find a basketball court, little corners to exercise with weights or fitness equipments, a big pool, several areas to celebrate, bbq’s and many opportunities to sit and enjoy. There’re countless little details to discover. And all with just 4.600 prims. Chapeau! I made many, many pictures.

Summer in the City is another great installation of Riosisco Productions (Fred Hamilton (frecoi) and Lotus Mastroianni). I had a lot of fun exploring and I might visit again, just to see more details that I missed on this first visit. Thank you very much, Fred and Lotus, for this Summer fun.
