Of Elves and Metaverses

The thing I love about a new look is looking for the sim in which it looks right. Today’s images come from the Valinor sim, which is part of the Avilion sim. Despite the complaints that people (myself included) make about the quality of the images rendered, you have to admit that they are pretty darned good! Compare these kind of images to say Active World, There, or IMVU, there is simply no contest. Second Life wins hands down! Is it absolutely perfect? No. Is it immersive? Completely! Second Life (technologically) really has a major problem: It is actually so good that we can start complaining about the details, rathter than simply accepting lumpy ugly worlds that most others resign themselves to.

Anyway, end of digression and onto today’s pictures!
