Anduril revisted

Much of my time in SL is spent faffing with fiddly bits and styling my avatar. I sometimes joke that I came here for the sex, but stayed for the style. I get satisfaction out of it, because I always wanted to try my hand at styling people, but never could get my hands on any victims, oh, I mean volunteers. The same goes for home decoration. I enjoyed putting together my real life apartment, but I don’t have the resources, time or energy to have a complete do-over every other month. Putting all that styling fun aside for a minute, I wanted to do some exploring. I went in search of interesting venues and stimulating vistas and after a couple of hops to sims that didn’t quite hit the spot, I landed at an old favorite.

I first discovered Anduril on a hunt over a year ago and I hadn’t been there for a while, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that it’s still there and that it has changed a lot since my last visit. It is a mix of an abandoned village and melancholy places of outstanding natural beauty. In my opinion the creators have succeeded in doing an overhaul without destroying the vibe of the previous design. It is different, less spooky than before, yet there still is a mysterious undertone.

The windlight is set to a constant moody sunset and you’ll find some good spots that are great for just sitting and zoning out. This is the point at which SL can be almost therapeutic and has the potential to actually help you unwind and prepare for bed.

Once you start looking around a bit more, you’ll find that the place isn’t all that abandoned after all. You can easily imagine a few people are living a quiet mindful life here, perhaps after having lived in the hustle and bustle of a big city for a long time. When it comes down to it, the biggest luxury of all is… time.
