I visited Sydney, Australia in SL the other day! Was very interesting. I went to the Sydney Opera House. I wanted to watch a show but the schedule hasn’t had anything added since January. I’m guessing because Winter is beginning to show its ugly head down under?
You can get there by clicking on this link: Sydney Opera House
Don’t forget, any links you click on in the post require you to have the Second Life Game installed in order for them to work.
When you click on the sign above, while in game, a schedule, in text, comes up so you can see the showtimes and the dates.
Here are a couple of views of the Opera House itself. It must be a pretty impressive sight when actually visiting in RL.
It is a lot of fun looking around in SL and posting stuff here. However, keep in mind that I do NOT have a computer that is meant to play Graphic Intense games, so my pictures do not do justice to how they actually look. There are things, even when I have my preferences within the game on the highest computer graphic option there is, that do not appear in my pictures. I go back and forth while in the game, changing my preferences from lowest to highest, on the highest setting tho I give up being able to move very well in the game. I slow down. BAD! It drives me crazy. Before, on my old computer, when it was new I could play all the time and see everything. It broke tho. On my new computer, a cheap one, I can’t play on that setting all the time. I end up wanting to throw my computer threw a wall, cuz I can’t move very well on the highest setting.
This is the Opera House at night. In the first picture, of the smaller pictures, I am across the Quay from the Opera House having a look. The second picture I am flying above so you can see it from above. Same for the third, altho I turned the night preference on.
I also took a few pictures inside the Opera House for you to see.
Sorry about the big green dollar sign. Putting something like this up in the game costs money, so donations are always accepted and you can usually find a “donation jar” in places like this. I gave while I was there. Only fair, I get to enjoy the end results, but someone still has to pay for the land in game, etc…
Well worth it I think. All the chairs are actually chairs you can sit in and enjoy the events taking place. The chairs are not for show only. I don’t know when the new season starts at the Opera house, but I would like to go see a show when they do begin once again.
Here is an interesting sign that was there too. I kinda like it, similar to our “Watch for Deer” sign here in the states.
Now that would be a shocker, to me, to see. LOL See the beautiful old church there, it really is beautiful. I don’t remember which church it is suppose to be, lost the note I had about it in my inventory in the game. It is beautiful tho. I have an outside shot and an inside shot.
People go to a lot of trouble to build these things in SL. I love architecture, in rl and in sl. They can be pretty amazing pieces of art.
I also went in the pub while I was there. Had to see it. I was thirsty after all my walking around ya know?
Love the bar stools, shaped like beer cans, anyone know if they are really like that at The Rock in Sydney? Amazing.
I also rode in a hot air Balloon, from what I gather it is always there for visitors to take a ride in and enjoy the city from above. I couldn’t drive it very well, was very bad at it actually, so only a picture of the balloon itself.
You can ride it and fly above the city to see what is there and going on in the area. Pretty nifty. ‘Less of course you are a terrible driver like myself. ;( The balloon kept going where I didn’t want to go, I attribute it to my graphically challenged computer. Not my fault!
Here is a picture of a Sales Vendor, not far from the Opera House schedule. Fun to see what kinds of things are for sale over there.
I had a fun day there. Gonna go back. There are many other things to see there too. Some beautiful gardens were in the area and of course the bay is visible.
I hope you like the SL version of Sydney, Australia! If you want me to go to a place in SL that is in RL just let me know, if it is in SL I will do my best to visit and get some photos, then we can see how it is done in SL! Have a great day.
