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.

Mrs. Robinson

Botgirl called me Mrs. Robinson earlier today and that sort of inspired this post, even though I am completely innocent and have even sworn off men for the rest of my life (or until I meet a really hot guy). But yeah, I did have fun dressing Manberry up like a schoolboy and photoshopping a […] Continue reading →

Dirty Dancing

As I said in a recent post, I have been trying to be a bit more social and approaching a few friends to join me on the blog. Carthalis Rossini is another one of the friends I drool over and wanted to collaborate with. Carthalis and I have blogged a few times before. The first […] Continue reading →

Girlfriends

When I noticed these new Girlfriends poses from Diesel Works I knew the perfect person to ask to pose with me would be Rylan Carling. I’ve known Rylan since 2008 when a bunch of us went on a shopping spree together. Over the years she has always been there encouraging me and messaging me whenever […] Continue reading →

Erratic Mesh

I tried a few new photoshop tricks with the first image in the post here and I kind of like the results. I don’t really have a great video tutorial to share with you about what I did but I might write out a post about it some time soon. I’m really enjoying experimenting more. […] Continue reading →

In My League

After skimming through my out-of-control inventory earlier this morning, I realized that this is the first League skin I have ever owned. I am totally shocked about that myself. Not sure why I didn’t get my hermit self there before but I’m really glad I did this time because this Jen skin is just outstanding. […] Continue reading →

PXL Kate

My apologies ahead of time because this post might be a bit picture heavy. I got my hands on this gorgeous new skin from PXL a few days ago and I have been having loads of fun snapping up pics in it. Kate has now been officially released and you can find it at the […] Continue reading →

Killing Me Softly

So I’m gonna be totally honest with you guys. I’ve been going through a lot recently and it’s been affecting every aspect of my life; from my decision making (or lack thereof) to my irrational behavior and my complete disregard for people’s feelings. It’s almost as if I’m on this train that’s going 1000 miles […] Continue reading →
