Weekly Roundup & Friday Find: Asphyxiation Point

All of the images in this post are raw shots, straight from Second Life.

Friday Find: Asphyxiation Point

Friday Find: Asphyxiation Point

For today’s Friday Find, I wanted to take you guys on a short tour of Asphyxiation Point and tell you more about it. Asphyxiation Point is an immersive and erotic roleplay sim with an adult rating. It is a beautiful tourist town with many clubs, bars, beaches and more. This weekend they have a weather event going on, a hurricane will be hitting the sim!

From my pictures and video, you can see the sim already has some major rain going on, but here is the hurricane schedule for this weekend:

  • Saturday 10am PST – hurricane will be in full force and the sim will start flooding
  • Saturday 12pm PST – Flooding should start to become very noticeable around this time.
  • Saturday 5pm PST – Portions of the town will be completely underwater by this time. I was told by one of the residents of the sim that the water reaches about mid buildings on 2nd street.
  • Sunday – Relief and recovery efforts start Sunday morning, by which time the water will have completely subsided.

I really want to try and visit tomorrow to see the flooding but I’m not sure if I’ll get the chance to. If I do, I will try and live stream from there if the lag is not too bad. You can watch my live stream link on youtube to catch it.

You can also watch my short video that I did there today showing a bit of the sim and rain right now:

Please remember that this is a roleplay sim so there are certain rules that you must follow when you go there, you can read the rules on their website.  The owner of the sim is Deranean Sands and one of the main builders is Charles Newton Kuluk (kuluk), who also created the weather machine that brings in the hurricane on the sim.

I was chatting with Kuluk a bit and he told me that the sim is not really designed for beauty. It is designed for efficiency to give folks a whole lot of RP options. There are multiple distinct neighborhoods each with their own look and feel. The businesses up the hill feel upscale. The theater district less so and so on and so forth. The underground areas are for those really down on their luck.. Think of it as a movie setting except that the script hasn’t been written yet. It also has even more hidden underground areas which cater to darker RP.

Here are some links for Asphyxiation Point:

I hope you get a chance to visit and see the hurricane as well. Sounds like it will be an interesting event.
