Revisiting Old Times

Doing a clean out of my inventory, particularly old landmarks, I came across my first place in Second Life. Curiosity always getting the better of me, I'd thought I'd see how the old sim had changed over the last 10 months.

(above) This is an early pic of my first building in SL, 'Hamster home with windturbine', back in August 2005. The sim is Zeuzera, and I was one of the first residents there. Back then I can also remember Zeuzura being right on the top edge of the New Continent.

(above)10 Months later, Zeuzura is quite a packed sim, and all the lovely woodland has disappeared :( , but a very eclectic mix of creativity from the residents.
Also a traintrack now runs through the adjacent sim, woooh.
Zeuzera itself is somewhere in the middle of the New Continent now, as the land has expanded.

Its amazing how in a little amount of time, the whole look and feel of a sim can change dramatically. Wish I could dump a timelapse camera to observe the world change over a few months (or devote a computer to do a screengrab every hour ), especially to see how each individuals organically respond to each others builds around them.

Ultimately, I can see why zoned building can be popular to many residents. Personally the main reason I left my first plot, was eventually being hemmed in by private parcels. Thankfully I found a nice hillside to live on now, but I do have an old twinge of nostalgia for my old place once in a while, especially the swings out the back. :)

GOSH you know that's the kind of invention we need! Timelapse videos... I've been hoping someone does a whole, uh, that trilogy Philip Glass did the music for but I can't spell. ;)
