Dunno if you sometimes experience this: You log in and everything appears to be perfectly normal. Your house and your neighbourhood rez beautifully and you look like super cute and all … and so you decide to do something. Ok, got that, so far. So my decision was to follow one of Inara’s “travel guides” to picturesque and interesting places, as I like to do sometimes.
The place in question today was Kekeland, and whoa, it didn’t disappoint. Such a well tought-out and landscaped sim, with such a rich atmosphere is rare on the SL grid. For me Kekeland appeared like a mediterranean harbour town in northern or middle Italy. If I had to guess I’d say time period late 60s, early 70s.
Only my Firestorm viewer, respectively the asset server I was on, or my connection sucked in a kinda sucky fashion. No, I wasn’t particularly laggy but I could move around, quick and responsive like a spring chicken.
Only making photos was pretty hard, since everything in front of my camera fell into and out of focus in a always repeating manner. I could stand for like 10 minutes with my camera fixed on the scene and clicking on stuff, to make it fall into focus. But while that happened other parts of the scene became blurry again, and when I edited those the part that was just in focus became blurry instead. 😦
I loved everything around here. Or let’s say I would have loved it, if everything was in focus all of the time, like we know it from SL on good days. But the state of me, of SL, of my computing machine, cut my visit at Kekeland rather short. 😦
Unfortunately today doesn’t seem to be such a normal day, a day without too many glitches by LL, my ISP or my computer. No, of course not. When Orca is out and about, exploring the grid, shooting some photos for her blog, something has to go wrong. 😦
