Pick of the Day: Picnic at Mr. Darcy’s

Picnic at Mr. Darcy's 1 20 August 2017

Today’s Pick of the Day is Picnic at Mr. Darcy’s, created by Solas (who is already a well-known fashion designer in Second Life as the owner of BlueMoon Enterprise (SL store, blog) and the co-owner of Silvan Moon Designs (SL Store, SL Marketplace, Flickr). Solas takes her inspiration from Jane Austen’s novel Pride and Prejudice, designing a Regency-era English manor house and landscaped grounds.

You materialize in front of a large, stately mansion, next to a set of croquet equipment, all ready for play. If you are in a VR headset with hand controllers, you can actually pick up the mallets and balls, and play croquet! (Unfortunately, Sansar users in desktop mode cannot yet pick up objects in-world. Linden Lab is striving for feature parity between VR and non-VR users of Sansar, and I hope that this functionality will be added soon.)

A short stroll away is a white pergola and a picnic blanket spread out under a large tree.

Solas says of her delightful experience:

Here you can picnic as you watch the croquet match (even play), waltz to a sweet melody on the vast marble terrace, or just take a long walk to gather your thoughts.
