I love to go by train. Not only simulated ones. I just had to try out the Caledon run. Caledon Kittiwickshire to Caledon Tamrannoch. It runs every hour and takes around 20 minutes.

A blimp in Caledon.

The servers really startup nice now so the train ride went very well and it is slow enough to let you see a lot of the beautiful Caledon landscape. The train does not go in a straight line. Nice that is possible. So it is very scenic.

VictoriastationI liked the tunnels and the big station in Victoria city.

I wish I had a Oculus Rift and some wind in my hair and it would have been perfect.

Nice to see that you can do some fun stuff in SL. Next thing is to fix the physics engine the ride resembles a Commodore 64, no you could actually do better rides on that one.

But I think maybe SL is on the right track. (Some train humor).

Devgridup_001

Finally I have had some time to get the devgrid up and running again. I have had a lot of art related work to do the last months and I have also been exploring new community's like the Flight simulator guys. I suppose they do thousands of flights every day and are a great example on how virtual life really can expand your mind and life.

I do some flying for Scandinavian VA. (virtual airline).

The Fly guys have made me believe in the future of virtual worlds now when Second life getting smaller and smaller. I have also been to There world and it is nothing like it used to be but more and more people find the way in to it.

The big thing is of course Facebook buying Oculus. I am not so sure this is such a great idea. I feel like the developers on Oculus know something I do not. Maybe the thing is not usable. But I have to buy a Rift devkit sooner or later just to find out.

I have been very busy but know I find that it have been a good thing to take a break from Opensim and SL. I have a lot of new ideas and as I am a virtual pilot I do not have to focus on finding scripts to my SL vehicles anymore.

My gallery and devgrid needs me. Nice to be back.

It is a lot of fun to fly on Vatsim as Virtual pilot. You get to do flights that you never would thought of. I take a look in the timetable and find new places to go. On the six flights I have made until now, three of them have been to totally new airports I never been to before. And the software records my landing statistics and I find that my passengers have a rough ride. Not dangerous, just a little bit unpleasant.

I have to work on my approach. Landings are ok.
