More EEP observations

In Lapara, New Technology on February 28, 2019 at 3:25 pm

In old viewers the stars are huge.  Which I did like:


However, I think this is not how it will be.  In the EEP viewer, we have faint twinkling.  And this is with the stars at the highest intensity.  We can make the stars dim to zero, or even make the moon massive.  Sci-Fi sims on the mainland will be interesting in the future.



Also, until the main servers get upgraded, we have an interesting effect on non-EEP sims.  I will have to keep this type of climate in mind come spring.


More tests of the SL EEP project

In the future you will get bombarded with EEP news and announcements.  Before you do, I will bombard you first as we’re on the beta!

New temporary overpass, bypass, underpass at Foxglove Parkway

In Lapara on February 17, 2019 at 8:00 am

For the winter season, we have a hastily constructed overpass, circular road, and an underpass on the former Foxglove Parkway.  Hastily means that if you show up twice, there is likely to be changes and updates made each time.

The project has unlocked some interesting routes and viewpoints and added depth.  There are ten other possible layouts to create; reconstruction and demolition to take place in the spring/summer.

Lapara now has EEP!

In Lapara, New Technology, Uncategorized on February 14, 2019 at 9:48 am

As the old downtown core is on a beta server, we now are in the Environmental Editor Protocols!  The importance of this is that parcels may now have their own custom settings.  One may even change the day/night setting.  Although, the Mayor tells us that he is happy with the current cycles unless there is a special occasion.

We are informed that even without customizing settings, you may experience quite a bit of jet-leg on sim crossings.
