The old saw goes that the mainland sucks, it’s ugly, and it is not vehicle friendly. In many instances it is a laggy eyesore but it is a fascinating place as well with unique builds and features. The idea for a van ride came to me when Rav dropped a copy of the KONA Radio van into my inventory! Yipeee!!! A late Christmas present! I had visions of installing a few more seats and cruising around with friends. It was for naught though 😦 . I removed a few unnecessary turn lights and plunked in a couple of 1 prim chairs but I ended up sinking right through the pier or sinking into the Linden roads. Sigh, oh well I can try a bit later on. In the meantime I hit the roads and began a bit of exploring
I found a rather interesting place called Park and Ride.The main feature is a road map of the central continent with the points of interest marked on it. Parked next to the map there were a free to copy bus and bicycles. You people who live nearby know about this, I saw several buses lying on the side of the road further down the track:
The travel got a little dicey as I experienced rebooting sims in and near my path. I often encountered popup messages stating the server I had entered was of a different version than the one I had just left. Is this an implementation of the HET grid? While waiting for a sim to come back online I snapped this aerial dwelling:
Very steam-punkish and befitting of Caledon.
The Arcata sim was like hitting a wall of bricks. As soon as I crossed it returned my van and said that the sim was full to capacity. How could that happen? Doesn’t the road network have it’s own allowance for prims?
