Mori Pwani Beach

A good friend of mine told me just a few weeks ago of a beautiful new resort in Second Life, called Mori Pwani, and I have noticed how much the place has changed him in the few visits he had to it.  Seems he has lost the melancholy caused by the loss of Bish almost completely now, and trust me that’s a fantastic thing!  Memories are good, but not when they go all black on you 😉

Anyway, I thought since he has become such a changed avatar, that I MUST direct all the other lost Bish souls to this new place from my blog, so when I finally do get to log back into my life and visit it, you will ALL be there 😉  So, get to the resort homepage and just see how real this new paradise is.  I hear from this same friend of mine that an old bikini wearing surfer dude buddy of mine apparently made the bulk of these sims along with a crazy team of surfers, and that it feels much much better than Bish ever did.  Knowing that it could only have been VW Sands, I completely agree with that statement and wish Mori Pwani, VW, Lissa and everyone there the very very best!

Keep those boards waxed, I’ll be back before you know it!

Waves,waves, waves (smiles,smiles,smiles)

Aloha Bishara – At last! The new sims went on-line and in less than 48 hours have been transformed into pure magic (by magic?) Majini is now surrounded by  even more waves! Pepo to the east, Wimbi to the west and the crown jewell Epic in the middle – the Bishara estate is sl surfing at it´s very best.

Our dear friend Poid was on hand to help with Pepo and she has created a night-surfing expierence not to be missed, simply awesome! Thankyou Poidy 🙂

Wimbi too is a must surf, shoot the rocks on Pipes and fluffs and if you get in the mood for something BIG, paddle over to Maji and pick up the beautifull new Epic.

Stay tuned for some fun new suprises!

Mahalo, /V

PS. Did I mention how excited I am?

Woooot! (?)

Aloha Bishara – A quick update on the surf scene:

In preparation for this weekends Windsurfing comp, Heather Goodliffe has been hard at work tweaking the Epic in an effort to give the competitors a solid big wave to play on. A quick inspection of the new wave in Edit revealed “Epic3”, making it the first in SL and it seems to be running better than the old wave although somewhat slow for board surfing. More importantly however, the “pusher” and the prim seem to move much more in time with one another all but eliminating that annoying ride we use to get 4 meters out in front of the wave! After the comp this weekend, we will see if there is an option to speed things up some for board surfing.

Still no word on a server side fix for the physics issues, making frontside turns remains nearly impossible. Hopefully LL has something in the works as this has nothing to do with either the boards nor the waves but instead how the 2 interact.

And lastly, the new H4 boards are being sent by the vendors on the sims. Good news? They float! Bad news? The camera scripts leave one totally blind in the Epic! Only option is mouse-view and we all love mouse-view right? Heather is aware of the camera “problem” and I would think that the “old” cam scripts will be shipping with the new boards sooner rather than later.

All for now – see ya in the line-up 🙂
