Whatever happened to...?

A couple of sims that I have blogged about are now gone, for instance Dantooine. Is it possible that the build has moved elsewhere? Would anyone know?

Dantooine

Serena Catalina is also gone, but that one is less surprising as it was not quite so organized and seemed more like a store or sandbox than a regular themed sim...

Serena Catalina

A steampunk build I had explored a couple of times is also gone, the one that was present at the sim The Foundry. The sim still exists but is not as interesting as it used to be.

The Foundry

Dantooine and the build at The Foundry are two losses for sl. I cannot stress enough how ephemereal this virtual world is...

Sea World -Coastal Town USA

Lots of things to do in this sim, riding jetskis, canoes, motorboats, airplanes... a few skyboxes are also available for dancing, and underwater is mermaid-friendly. The sim itself is unassuming and quiet, a small non-descript coastal town, where the ice-cream parlour is likely the high-point...

Where it begins -Flea market

I am sure you have noticed that my favourite sims are generally those with flourishing natural areas... but I do try to present a bit of everything, cityscapes, science-fiction, art galleries... This sim has a flea market in a rural area...

Shadow Syndicate

This was, in a way, a peculiar sim... in the skybox was a game of fighting ships but perhaps it was broken or perhaps I expected too much from it...

But then after exploring the spaceship,

There was almost a feel of the sim not being quite finished, but still I enjoyed the visit.

Island of Love -Lost Port

As the text of the sim says, this old world-themed sim is for exploring alone or with a close friend. Dont forget to check the underwater world.

Alpha Point

I had heard of Alpha Point for quite a while, when I finally went for a visit... and I was wowed. The richness of the textures, the mix of colours, the intricacy of the build. If you have not seen it, go check it out, this really is a must see. I will let the pictures do the talking...

Heaven of Angels

The sim belongs to a bloodlines clan (vampires and lycans), but what attracted me to it is the appearance of desolation... The ground is dry and cracked, most trees are bare skeletons, the grass is dry...

There is also a castle you can visit, looming dark and large over the land, and so tall as to be lost in the clouds...
