Simple’s Mountain Retreat @ Plebeja: 2015

My long time home and beloved workplace in Plebeja on the Heterocera Atoll (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Plebeja/217/187/223). More about this place here. You can’t miss it traveling the High Mountain Road. It even found its way into the secondlife Wiki now: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Mountains_Of_Heterocera 🙂

Too bad the Rezz Zone on the road as mentioned in the Wiki (http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Heterocera_Route_6) doesn’t exist anymore. Now you find the nearest Rezz Zone along the road in Moth (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Moth/236/31/128).

Simple's Mountain Retreat @ Plebeja (13-11-2014)

The parcel includes 24’176sqm / ~ 5’500 prims. Before the partial reconstruction sometimes I was running short of prims while building or sorting inventory. Just in rebuilding the old school floors and replacing the complicated ramps / stairs by spiral staircases, I did spare more than enough prims – even enough to add some new fancy waterfalls. And I still have some 1500 prims in reserve 🙂

I like the look of these staircases – they are realistically massive but still elegant and wide and secure enough for an easy walk. Here a view of the balcony:

Like the Zoo, this is and will ever be a work in progress. Some ideas prove worthwhile, some don’t turn out the way I imagined and stay more or less unfinished, waiting for the next attempt. But some places really feel like home 🙂 Here a detail of the garden located on the top terrace:

The “Mookah (Multi Chair Hookah) v1.0.43” by Timeless Prototype – Timeless Gadget – is one of the oldest objects in my inventory – and still much in use 😉

On the middle terrace you will find a wonderful addition, the “~*FF*~ Elemental Falls “Earth” by Uni Ninetails – ~*Forest Floor*~ Gardens & Dreamscapes. It makes a nice place to fiddle around with the lights, shadows and Depth of Field settings of the phototools.

The head here and the hands of the new waterfall are from a set of sculpties called “Chakra Nova BODY PRIMS” by Pumpkin Tripsa. According his profile he is “Currently working on coming back to SL. Very excited about that.” I’m very exited about his return too. He is one of my favourite creators but did leave sl before I started collecting for real. So you find only two of his statues on display in the Zoo of All Things @ Lythria (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Lythria/108/40/59): A “Seraph (dark gilded)” and the “Ganesha (marble)”. I hope he will bring his old work back too, I remember seeing some fantastic gargoyle statues in his shop 🙂

Next, I plan to reconstruct the wooden ramps / walkway from the road. I do have a set of building elements in my inventory from dop Kidd (dop.kidd) – KIDD Grass that will fit very nicely. But there are some other items on the sl todo-list for both Simple and Traveling. So do not expect this reconstruction happening soon. You will read all about it on this blog 🙂

be nice and have fun…
