Sim Surround Yosemite for sale now

For two weeks I have my newest sim surrounding environment, a virtual version of Yosemite National Park, USA, on display on my sim. More than 2,000 people came over to have a look!

Since this morning, you can purchase your own copy of Yosemite on my sim. Go there and you will see the board where you can get one. You can purchase one of three versions: a Bronze (L$ 2,950), a Silver (L$ 5,950) and a Gold one (L$ 8,950), and of course there are free demos available too. You can also get it at the Marketplace.

The environments have a few interesting new properties:
  • The Silver and Gold edition can be changed by a HUD (a new version of the one you know from the previous skybox and sim surround environments). Not only can you change the textures of rocks and meadows etc., but the off-sim trees can also be changed, for example to palm trees, autumn trees, snowy pines etc, to suit any season you want
  • The Gold edition has an Advanced menu, with which you remove the unnecessary scripts and you can enable the unscripted sit function on your sim again

Visit Virtual Yosemite now!

In the previous blog post, you read about the first example of a new generation of sim surround environments. I posted a few pictures, and yes, the envirnoment resembles Yosemite National Park in California USA. Here's a link to the UNESCO World Heritage List and to the website of the National Park itself.

Now I have good news and I have bad news. The bad news is, the environment is not ready for sale yet. It will probably take me another two weeks to clear some bugs in the scripts that control the surround. The good news, however, is that you can visit Virtual Yosemite on Landscapes Unlimited now. I hope you will enjoy the view, and I would love to hear your comments on this page, on my profile wall or on my facebook page!
