The Rocky Coast: a chain of islands to decorate your horizon

I've had this landscape in my inventory for a long time already, but I never had the time to finish it. Now it is available in my store. It comes in five versions: full sim surround, half sim surround, and three sizes of sky landscapes (1,000 x 1,000m, 250 x 250m and 125 x 125m).



The Rocky Coast consists of a couple of island groups with steep cliffs, boulders, some sheltered beaches and trees on top. They go very well together with the on-sim mesh Cliffs & Beaches landscape. It keeps the horizon visible for long stretches, so it won't obstruct your sunrise and sunset. This landscape, like all other recent landscapes, does not interact with the physics system, which means it does not obstruct any sit animations and does not cause movement lag.



I've used new materials too, so make sure to enable Advanced Lighting in your viewer to enjoy it to the max. The sky landscapes have animated reflective water when Advanced Lighting is on.



The sim surround landscape can be visited here, where it's surrounding the Cliffs & Beaches on-sim landscape. The medium sized sky landscape can be visited here. I've put a few sections of the mesh beach system in the middle, to show you how well they combine to make your perfect hideaway in the sky.
