Islands Galore

People have been asking me inworld to see the grand selection of islands I have available, so here it here to see the islands as one huge gif file (50k). The islands I'm working on now are all of the French Polynesian isles like Tahaa, Huihine etc....those will be coming soon!


The movie that I was in just won the SecondLife 2006 Machinima Awards...that's me at the end on one of my surfboards! You can see Bora Bora Isles in the background before we had it landscaped fully. There's a little too much shooting in the movie for me personally, but, oh well.

St. Barts

Here is the first island I am posting... St Barts in the Caribbean...

Here is the layout:

Here are some notes about St Barts from

It is widely believed that St. Barts was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493, and he named it in honor of his brother Bartolomeo. In the mid-1600s, the French arrived, took control from the indigenous indians, and built small settlements.

In 1784 it was sold (traded) to Sweden, and even though the French bought it back in 1878, some Swedish influences remain, including the name of the its capital, Gustavia.

The island is part of the French overseas department of Guadeloupe, and the French influence and style are everywhere.

It is considered by many to be the Caribbean's most beautiful island, with dozens of white sand beaches, crystal clear waters and a green, hilly landscape punctuated by numerous lagoons.

St. Barts is definitely upscale, and a favorite of the rich and famous. The island is chic and simply stunning. Gustavia, a duty-free port, is a picturesque place of red-roofed buildings, boutiques, a yacht-filled harbor, and a very relaxed lifestyle.

What is an Instant Island?

Terraforming in Second Life is something everyone can do, and most people do it badly. Doing it by hand, especially when you are terraforming a whole sim can take days to do correctly, and you have no overall scope of the project.

I've seen so many islands out there that have major problems like no sense of balance, beaches that instantly plunge you 20 m under the water, square ugly islands parceled off like prison cells etc., that I finally wanted to give people an easy and instant alternative to doing it themselves. I have about 50 or so islands that I have designed with nice sloping beaches, lots of water, and smooth inlands. They are taken from real life, real islands designed by [fill in your deity here]. They can be easily uploaded using the estate tools for sim owners, changing a task that took days or weeks into one that takes minutes. I have left the islands flat, so the sim owner can customize it to their liking. Much easier to make a mountain that to get the basic parts of an island right...
