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:

Atlas Hopping, Episode 19 (New Year’s Eve Edition)!

Once again, we gathered at Draxtor Despres’ headquarters at 114 Harvest, and then we headed off as a group to visit three different Sansar experiences today:

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:

Scene of the Day: White Out: Are You Sure You Want to Exit Sansar?

Today we had a casual meetup at White Out, a winter experience by Debi Baskerville. I have noticed that sometimes, when you exit out of Sansar while still wearing your VR headset, you get a funny, off-kilter display of the verification message on your computer monitor when you take off your headset. The message lasts only a few seconds. I took a screen capture of it today!

Some of the pine trees are decorated with Christmas lights, and as a comic touch, there is an oversize Charlie Brown Christmas tree!
