South Farthing

This sim is another one of the Calas Galadhorn Park group, some of which I have already covered here. Several waterways and roads can be explored by boat, horse or on foot. When I visited it about 2 weeks ago, winter had South Farthing under its grip, and it was delightfully peaceful. If you are cold, the house has fires roaring in the fireplaces that will warm you up. Go for a visit, you will enjoy it.

Hodgepodge

I have heard of this sim from one of the several blogs I am following, and I finally got around to visit it. It is a lovely sim, with snow in altitudes and nearly tropical at the water's edge only... The transition is smooth, well done. A lovely sim to visit.

Crusades -Miranda's Moon Caliban

The text of the sim says: "Out on the fringe of the Blue Sun solar system lies Miranda, The Reaver Planet. Orbiting Miranda is the moon Caliban, once an Alliance research outpost, now populated by strong willed people who wish to be as far away from the Alliance as possible."

The build is nicely done, though the sim is quiet, 2 people at the most and often I was alone on it. It is well designed from a role-playing point of view, and worth a visit. A few good paintings are hung here and there.

The Abyss

I do a lot of hopping around trying to find sims of interest, and this is how I got here... I was impressed. The Abyss really is worth a quick look, it has the appearance of an abandoned post-apocalyptic modern city... I loved the message at the landing point.

What ever happened to... Numbakulla (Pot Healer Adventure)?

Almost a year ago, I featured Numbakulla, a great sim, and a really fun puzzle to solve (the Pot Healer Adventure), one of the oldest such games on sl. It was a tough one which I was able to finish thanks to the help of a friend (we were collaborating on the the clues). To my great sorrow, I have learned earlier this week that the sim was gone! As a prize for finishing the hunt, some of the build's items were given away. I took as much as I could... but the build and its amazing atmosphere is gone! What a shame!

Off sides -Winter Hedge Maze

This sim is simply the entry to a group of sims where you can do lots of winter sports... I was attracted to it because it has a maze... but the maze was a very simple one, nothing challenging about it... However I laughed at the sight of who was trying a bungee jump, and just that made it worth a visit.
