Video: Penthouse Suite in C3rb3rus’ New Sci-Fi Sansar Experience, 2077

I was so impressed by the work that C3rb3rus had done in creating his new urban science fiction experience, 2077, that I went back today to take some video of the view from his penthouse suite.

It wasn’t just me that was impressed. Ebbe Altberg, the CEO of Linden Lab (the makers of Sansar), joined us on our exclusive first tour of the new experience yesterday, and he was very impressed too! He basically said, “Whatever you need to make this even better, C3rb3rus, let me know!” When you’ve got the CEO’s attention like this, you know you’ve made it!

As I already said in my earlier blogpost, the entire experience has the look and feel of something from the movies Blade Runner or The Fifth Element:

I don’t know about you, but I would totally want to rent this apartment! If you haven’t visited Sansar yet, this is the best reason I can think of to come do so!

You can install the Sansar software client, if you don’t already have it, at https://www.sansar.com/download. And then you can visit 2077 by searching for “2077” in the Sansar Atlas, or just by clicking this link: 2077. See you in-world!

Learning How to Use Modular Patterns in Marvelous Designer to Create Avatar Clothing for Sansar

Two very experienced Marvelous Designer users named MD-Angel and Vintorix are sharing their avatar clothing creation expertise with us on the discussions in the Fashion channel of the official Sansar Discord server. This information is much appreciated by newbie users of MD, like me!

One thing that I did not know until today, is that MD has modular pattern pieces stored in a library, which you can use as a starting point for your own garments. I was playing around with these today, just to see what I could make. The first thing I tried was a men’s dress shirt. Here is what my men’s white (untextured) dress shirt looked like on the first try. It still needs a lot of work to look better, but it’s a very promising start! It would have taken me HOURS of working my way up the learning curve to try and build such a nice-looking buttoned shirt collar on my own.

The second garment I tried to make was an oversize women’s V-neck T-shirt, and it turned out so well that I am placing it for sale on the Sansar Store! Here’s what it looks like on Vanity Fair (see picture, below, taken in my own experience, Ryan’s Garden). Here’s a link to the T-shirt listed for sale on the Sansar Store. I’ve priced it at S$5, like my other clothing in the Store (except for a few freebies). I don’t think it’s fair to charge too much money for items made while I am still learning how to use the Marvelous Designer software properly. I also want people to buy my clothes, so I am deliberately keeping my prices affordable! I get such a thrill whenever I make s sale, and whenever I see someone wearing a piece of clothing that I made 🙂

I would like to thank, from the bottom of my heart, the very talented and experienced Marvelous Designer creators like MD-Angel and Vintorix, who are freely sharing these valuable tips and techniques with us! These people are working hard, for no pay, to provide truly helpful advice for the entire fledgling fashion designer community in Sansar, so please be sure to thank them when you meet them in-world or on the Discord channels!

Scene of the Day: White Out and the Atlas Hopping Scavenger Hunt (Plus Nine Things I Learned)

I have never had so much fun in Sansar! We had well over twenty avatars show up in-world for the first-ever Atlas Hopping Scavenger Hunt. And I learned a few things:

  1. Drax can’t stop talking.
  2. You never appreciate how large a Sansar experience can be until you’re hunting for something small.
  3. Drax can’t stop talking.
  4. Drax has an unhealthy attachment to his German hand puppet.
  5. Drax can’t stop talking.
  6. Dynamic objects can clump together into one big ball when an experience crashes.
  7. Drax can’t stop talking.
  8. Teleporting is much faster than running, but whenever I picked up a scavenger hunt item in my VR headset, I found I couldn’t teleport at the same time.
  9. Did I mention, that DRAX CAN’T STOP TALKING?!??

Here’s Drax’s livestream of the event, which culminated in an exclusive first tour of the new sci-fi Sansar experience, 2077:

And here’s Strawberry’s livestream of the event:

Pick of the Day and Outfit Outlay: 2077

C3rb3rus, the grand prize winner of the Sansar Scariest experience contest last year, has completely outdone his previous work with the stunning achievement called simply 2077. Never have I been in any VR experience that feels so much like the world of the classic sci-fi movie Blade Runner!

I was actually able to get an early preview of this wonderful new Sansar experience, when I took most of these pictures. I added several more photos taken when Drax and C3rb3rus conducted an exclusive first tour of 2077.

You actually spawn in the subway station, where a subway train that C3rb3rus showed us how he made takes you on a ride in a circle. Gindipple was the first one who stepped into the train, complaining (as usual) about not being able to sit down, and then, suddenly, whoosh! It took off like a bullet! And he was gone! It was never so peaceful 😉 and even better, Torley Linden got video:

One of the funniest moments of the whole tour!

C3rb3rus led us up to street level, and then down again into a funky underground club. Here you can see Drax interviewing Strawberry Singh:

The attention to detail of the entire experience is absolutely astounding.

To match the experience, I decided to style Vanity Fair in a suitable sci-fi outfit:

Vanity Fair is wearing:

  • the dragon blue animated skin by AnuAmun (S$10)
  • the flowers and copper armour top by AnuAmun (S$150)
  • the short bob hair by Snow (tinted blue to match; FREE)
  • and I don’t remember where I got the goggles from! I checked my purchase history and I have no record of buying them. I believe they were already in my inventory as one of the basic avatar attachment objects, which everybody got by default.
