Drivers of SL doesn’t relate to the bestest and latest drivers for your Nvidia and AMD graphic cards. I guess (hope) you’re all sorted in that regard and update/upgrade your shit accordingly.
So if it’s not about drivers, what is it then?
Well, it is about drivers.
Human/avatarish drivers, drivers of vehicles in SL. And Drivers of SL is a group in SL, a free-to-join group that sends you out on missions … hey, don’t ask too much, I was just intrigued when Kittensusie told me about the group. Because I know the good old Susan would never join any boring group but always go for the fun- and action filled stuff. That’s why I joined and am now myself in the middle, or beginning, of this week’s mission/cruise/scavenger hunt. So I have no clue when it ends, for how long it’s supposed to run, when I’m supposed to finish with it and what the big objective is. I’ll just do as I do with everything else in life: I go with the flow.
So when I open the latest group notice and notecard I receive a HUD. And by activating it a story unfolds before my very eyes: A certain Geospina, who I supposedly am affiliated with in some way or the other, tells me hers and mine life are in danger and I must meet her and her brother in her apartment, asap!
“The game’s afoot” I mumble to myself in best Sherlock Holmes fashion, and click the HUD, ready to follow its instructions to the T, as Geospina asked me so explicitly to do.
It starts with me being TPd to the starty location where I can rez a van on the parking lot of some SL store. Nice. I guess that’s the coolest thing about these adventures: You’ll always get the vehicle you need for the next leg of your route.
Cool, a van obviously means the route will follow some roads, obviously Linden Routes. The HUD is also very nifty and gives me very exact directions. Every single curve in the road is reflected by an arrow in the hud. Drastic changes of direction are shown by a huge 90° arrow. Can’t get lost with that thing. So, after initial start problems I finally hit the road and really enjoy the ride. Read all about what I’ve figured out by now in this illustrated story.
So that’s it for now. That’s how far I got today. My adventure will continue tomorrow.
Oh, and this:
