My self-imposed hiatus from Sansar meant that a number of new experiences popped up while I wasn’t paying much attention. One of them was a wonderfully nostalgic experience by Theanine, called Stereopixel Arcade. It makes extensive use of stereographic 3D media surfaces, which allows you to embed three-dimensional pictures and video in objects. (You can see an excellent example of a stereographic media surface at the Sansar Studios Creator Academy: The Hall of Materials experience.)
Note that the 3D effect is only visible if you are in a VR headset; if you are using Sansar on the desktop (non-VR), you won’t get the same stereographic effect.
If you loved and played 1980s video games, you’ll enjoy a retro trip to the Stereopixel Arcade! All the classics are represented in a recreation of an Eighties video game arcade: the Legend of Zelda, Pokémon, Dragon Quest, Metroid, Final Fantasy, and of course, Super Mario!
There’s also a disco dancefloor in day-glo colours, right next to a supersized, old-time Nintendo entertainment system:
If you’re pining for a return to the Eighties, be sure to pay Stereopixel Arcade a visit!
Strawberry Singh was once again able to join us, and she was wearing a new shirt designed for her by Solas! Very nice! Solas also made the shirt Drax is wearing.
At Valencia, we were able to climb up on the roof of one of Theanine’s curving buildings to get a better look at the surroundings. (We also threw lots of apple pies at each other!)
Here are some pictures of our time spent exploring Ambard’s build, called Amber Castle. I didn’t realize that Ambard is selling his buildings two ways: you can buy his completed buildings from the Store for Sansar dollars, or you can pick up pieces of his Modular Building System for free and arrange them to build your own structures! Here’s a link to his store, called Ambardia.
And, as usual, both Drax and Strawberry livestreamed this event. Here is Drax’s stream:
When Linden Lab flipped the switch on the new fashion market, it meant that all the old outfits were disabled, and could no longer be used. I had gotten so used to wearing a navy blazer and khaki pants outfit, and I kind of missed it.
Theanine has put an apple head attachment up for sale in the Sansar Store. But it’s not just any old attachment, as he explains in the product description:
A silly apple-shaped head for your avatar, with a fully rigged face. Animates and moves its mouth and eyes according to your microphone speech. This is THE VERY FIRST rigged head replacement ever made for this platform. (Note: Equip it from the Clothing section in the Lookbook)
