And I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy.

—F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Linden Lab is hosting a formal event in Sansar tomorrow evening, Friday, May 17th, 2019 from 4:00-9:00 p.m. Pacific time/Sansar time. The event, titled Gala De La Lune, is described as:

A Great Gatsby inspired formal event. Croquet, scones, and ballgowns. It don’t mean a thang if it ain’t got no Electroswing.

And if your avatar is looking for something suitable to wear, the Sansar Store has a featured selection of formal clothing created for such an event!

Here’s the lineup of performers for the party:

  • 4:00-5:00 p.m. PST – DJ Bayleigh
  • 5:00-6:00 p.m. PST – DJ Puddles
  • 6:00-7:00 p.m. PST – DJ GrandadGotMojo
  • 7:00-8:00 p.m. PST – DJ DisneyHuntress

You will need to install the Sansar client software on your computer and create an account to attend this party. Here’s a guide on how to get started. On the day of the event, open up Sansar and navigate to the Atlas (look for the Go button on the left-hand-side menu). Once there, click on the Gala De La Lune experience to join. The doors will open 30 minutes ahead of the event.

It promises to be a very elegant soirée. I hope to see you there!

Sansar Pick of the Day: Sancraft

Sancraft is not the first Minecraft-themed experience in Sansar (that would be Sancrafter by JackTheRipper, which I wrote about back in August 2017). But Gindipple has created a wonderful interactive sandbox environment reminiscent of the classic cube-building game.

If you are in desktop, just press 1 to bring up a building HUD. If you are in a Oculus Rift headset, just press the X or A button on your Touch controllers to bring up the same menu. You can easily choose a cube type, then click on the ground to start placing cubes.

If you need to remove a misplaced cube, just select the shovel icon from the HUD and click on the cube you want to remove. Here are just a few examples of what people have built using Sancraft, posted to the official Sansar Discord:

Why not jump into Sancraft and flex your creative muscles? It’s great fun!

Here’s the listing from the Sansar Events Calendar. You will need to install the Sansar client software on your computer and create an account to see this show. Here’s a guide on how to get started.
