Sansar Pick of the Day/Sansar Outfit Outlay: Scorpion’s Lair

Scorpion has created a wonderfully evocative sci-fi experience in Sansar called Scorpion’s Lair. We visited it today on episode 85 (already?!) of Atlas Hopping with Drax and Solas, and it is so wonderful that I decided to make it my Sansar Pick of the Day. The major build is a dimly-lit cathedral-like space with a huge wind turbine where the altar would be found, all located in a fantasy landscape sharply lit from the horizon by a distant sun. Scorpion did a fantastic job creating this space!

I am also going to show off my brand new custom avatar, created by Medhue using his FullSpectrum avatar kit add-on for Blender:

My avatar is wearing:

Custom Avatar: Tyrone by Medhue (S$899 on the Sansar Store and worth every penny, in my opinion)

Dreads Hairstyle: Tentacion dreads by Fabeeo Breen (S$200 on the Sansar Store)

Shirt: black men’s relaxed button shirt by Debi Baskerville (S$50 on the Sansar Store)

Pants: striped charcoal grey slacks by Whystler (only S$5 on the Sansar Store!)

Shoes: male club shoes (which I believe are part of the default avatar clothing inventory in Lookbook)

TOTAL COST FOR THIS AVATAR: S$1,154 (about US$11.50 or CDN$15.40)

Episode 6 of the Metaverse Newscast: An Interview with Sansar Creators Bagnaria and Medhue in Scurry Waters and Scurry Canyon

I’m pleased to announce that Episode 6 of the Metaverse Newscast is now available for public view on YouTube (my Patreon supporters got a sneak peek yesterday).

My producer Andrew and I paid a visit to Scurry Waters, the tropical paradise created by Medhue and Bagnaria. Scurries are animated creatures made by Medhue, who is already well known for his Zooby cat and other animated creations in Second Life. Scurry Waters is full of things to do and see: ride an airboat, shoot pistols and try to trap each other in large floating bubbles, even blow up a pirate ship!

Bagnaria and Medhue discuss their creative partnership and we even get to discussing why some virtual worlds attract an older crowd than others. We wrap up the tour at Scurry Canyon, a fun and challenging shooting game. Can you make it to the very end?

If you are looking for previous episodes of the Metaverse Newscast, you can find them on the Metaverse Newscast channel on YouTube. We are still aiming to release one episode a month.

And if you want to support the show, may I steer you over to my Patreon page, where as little as US$1 a month unlocks exclusive perks and benefits? Whether or not you are a Patreon patron, thank you for your support!
