back to New Babbage

Babbage Square (153, 174, 121). As described at SecondLife.com: http://secondlife.com/destination/new-babbage

New Babbage rezzed much faster this time, which was nice.

Nothing spoils touring like waiting for your environment to appear.

I made a determined effort to see new things and look for activities, as you can see in a few signs that advertise upcoming events. Mostly, because everything was rezzing at a better pace, I discovered how huge the Babbage region is—see the map in the images. I haven’t even scratched the surface of visiting everything, but I really like the combination of industrial and urban cultural settings, docks and industry and museums and libraries. Unlike the Long Island build I visited a few weeks ago where it’s all upscale, you expect to see both working class and royalty in Babbage. Of course, I didn’t see anyone, and that’s a valid complaint about Second Life®. I understand that you can’t have a space as big as a world, created by the world, and expect everyone to be there at all times, but it is still disappointing, even when you are just sightseeing.

Here’s an interesting New Babbage site: http://cityofnewbabbage.com/reader/

Someone else made a return to New Babbage and compared it to the earlier build in this video:
