DRAXSTONES, MEET THE DRAXSTONES THEY’RE THE MODERN TECH AGE FAMILY
FROM THE WORLD OF SANSAR
THEY’RE ATLAS HOPPING INTO HISTORY!
— Torley Linden
Today our theme was The Flintstones (or, as we decided to call ourselves, the Draxstones!) and car racing. Alfy made some cute Flintstones-type car attachments for our avatars, and Solas, Nya, Alfy and a few other people made Flintstones outfits for us all to wear.
We visited four experiences:
The Island, a so-far-unlisted Sansar experience containing art created by Silas Merlin
Motorsports Complex, by Will Speed (where we raced each other on the racetrack in our Draxstones cars!)
I didn’t know ahead of time that my experience would be on the list of experiences to visit today, otherwise I would have vacuumed and tidied up the place a bit 😉
The snowman you see in the picture below (taken by Mijeka Munro) was created using the Oculus Medium sculpting tool. It was then imported into Blender in order to apply colours, then exported as an FBX file and placed into my experience near the spawn point of Ryan’s Garden.
Watching everyone ride on and enjoy Agustine’s musical carousel in Ryan’s Garden, laughing and talking (and then hopping on for a ride myself) was one of the happiest moments I’ve experienced in Sansar to date. It reminded me how much I loved to ride the carousel when the Red River Exhibition was in town every summer.
In the above picture, that’s me waving at Andrew the photographer, I’m the one in the grey Sansar T-shirt.
Later on, I had a blissful Zen moment at the Bonsai Garden:
(Note: I actually wrote a whole blogpost and then WordPress ate it, and I lost everything! This is an abbreviated version of that first lost post.)
Instead of our regular atlas hopping, we all gathered in the basement of 114 Harvest to watch the TV set, where Drax was teaching Strawberry how to build a Sansar experience. It was both a hilarious and an educational episode!
We wrapped it up by visiting the newly-constructed Berry’s Toy Box, and playing a game of hide and seek in it! I haven’t laughed so hard in ages! Then we visited the Treehouse Overlook, by Shack Dougall, a truly wonderful experience picked at random from the Sansar Atlas.
Unfortunately, I had to miss yesterday’s Atlas Hopping with Draxtor Despres and Strawberry Singh. (I am now watching Drax’s livestream, and I am enjoying it immensely! Silas Merlin made Drax a wonderful blue dragon avatar.)
The avid atlas hoppers visited the following Sansar experiences, all except the last created by Sansar Studios, the in-house design team at Linden Lab:
