You probably thought there was nothing else Snug Harbor owner Ty Lomes can add to make the nautical sim any better and bang he adds something new. Tucked away on sim 9 is a wave-splashing, vintage themed beach that looks like time never altered it. Thanks to the contributions of Pearl Sweetwater and Ingazaentz, the retro-looking beach will be a great new hang out. Residents will have the opportunity to host parties, while visitors can rez a surf board and ride the wave after joining the navigator group. Pearl was responsible for adding three kickin’ new waves and Inga built a unique field house and terraformed the land. Grab an ice cold pop from the vintage color and chill on Snug Harbor beach.
So why the new playground?
According to Ty, he was ready for expansion. This is about as far as he can go North at this longitude. It became an estate corner and he wanted to add a new beach and a bigger wave. It’s a great new way to make it a more interesting place for all that walk on the shore.
“I was going to make it accessible by road, instead of boardwalk and someone told me why don’t you put in an airstrip. I said okay, but when you put in an airstrip you have to figure out what to put at the end of it. The building process took about a month. We ended up putting in a little field house and a place big enough to turn your plane around,” he said as we talked on the new stretch of beach on a Saturday afternoon. He added, “And only for small planes. I didn’t want a big airport. You can land here now and you can ride the wave.”
Ty said it’s suppose to appear retro themed, like it’s been well used and been there forever. Inga, a Russian speaker, set out the nautical items arranged on the beach and created the vintage field house and Pearl did the break-neck waves, water current and the rocks on the shore.
Taking fun to a new level, Ty and Inga are introducing Easter Island. Think cultural versus paintball and you and your friends can easily clock in an SL hour of this real life game with a virtual twist. Though it hasn’t had an official opening and rules aren’t yet posted, everyone is invited to teleport up there. You’ll find teleports near the dance emporium in the town area.
