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!

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)

Sansar Pick of the Day: Keep on the Borderland

Ambard has created a sprawling, moody medieval experience in Sansar, called Keep on the Borderland, where you must explore and interrogate various characters you encounter, in order to collect shards and solve a mystery.

Ambard describes it as follows:

On the outskirts of the known world stands a mighty keep. For centuries it has stood, protecting our lands from the threats of darkness and despair. Lately, the monks of the keep have been fighting to keep out the darkness as the magic that protects the borderlands has started to fail. You have been summoned to return power to the monks by finding four powerful shards hidden throughout the borderlands. Will you find the shards or will you fail like so many before you. The borderlands await you: come and live the adventure!

Can you solve the puzzle?

Sansar Pick of the Day: Wurfi’s Little Gallery

One of the best uses of virtual worlds is to enable you to create and curate your own personal art gallery! Sansar user Wurfi, who is an accomplished photographer in Second Life, has made a one-minute YouTube video showing off his new gallery in Sansar:

I think that this sort of cross-worlds pollination (showing off one virtual world to users of a completely different one) will become more popular over time. Who knows, it might even bring some more budding photographers into Second Life! If you want to visit in person, here’s the Sansar Atlas link.
