Shady Shopping District

I spent several hours in ‘Shady Shopping District‘, today…

…this has to be the prettiest post-apocalyptic build in SL…

… and, by far, one of the most interesting shopping environments…

… some kind of weirdness has happened here, perhaps decades ago, leaving most buildings in ruin, and giant, frozen octopus tentacles coming out of the ground…

… whatever it was happened so long ago, the ruins are long over-run by vegetation. There are little golden motes sparkling in the air, I trusted my alien physiology to protect me from them if they were actually spores, but still found them pretty…

… all is glorious decay…

… my only gripe about the place is the scream-inducing lag which, at it’s worst, was as bad as the, for me, benchmark horror sim lag at ‘Tralala’s Diner‘. It was this lag that was the cause of me staying here for more than three hours, just turning around could result in me getting hopelessly lost, so I had to do things over and over till I got where I wanted to be, and any impatience resulted in catastrophe. Most photos are not the ones I was looking at when I clicked the shutter, but the ones I got seconds later, when the sim reality caught up with my intentions…

… still, it’s a gorgeous sim, and there are several wonderful stores to be discovered if you have the fortitude to battle the lag.
