The HG Safari visit on Dorenas World during its 12th anniversary
Tue, 25 Jan 2022 14:12:29 +0100
And epic it was. Thanks, Thirza!
We've hit almost 40 avatars with no lag worth mentioning. Here's Thirza's blog post:

The dance floor at HG safari clubhouse
Good idea to warm up safari goers before going.
Dancing really does do it. This week, two animated destinations, a big crowd of avatars, and a roaring success for our hosts,
on Dorena's World, and
and the scriptastic
Addresses of the destinations, as always, at the end of the post.
It really helps if you come to the clubhouse on HG Safari, OSGrid and get the LMs before we depart at the top of the hour, and thanks to everyone who showed up, including
who entertained us by dancing so well. A good omen...
First up, Dorena's World. Over the past few days, they have been celebrating their 12th anniversary as a grid, and we dropped in at GridTalk region for a party.
Wir gratulieren zum Geburtstag!
2010, never so many people at a party
Is 12 years a record in OpenSim for sim longevity?
Os Grid and Franco are older
any time over a few years is awesome, let alone more than 10
I think Craft is the same age, we celebrate their anniversary next week. Anachron, what is the secret of a grid that survives 12 years?
Do your own thing and dont listen to what others think about it
Rubeus Helgerud in the mix!
The DJ on GridTalk was
and he was absolutely brilliant, funny, intelligent and welcoming.
This is quite a turkish tango - very interesting melange...
really good selection tonight, Rubeus
One of the best bits about Safari is that people get to meet each other. So many busy builders, busy lives - you often don't get to put a name to a face. So it's an opportunity to meet your heroes.
wow! Tarnaa! love your work!
Thank you Klarabella *Taarna blushes
And Beth is here, too... Jupiter has recommended your clothes to me, Beth!
@Juno so sweet, thank you :D
Loru was the first who saw me in clothes she made.
Otto sees me in his clothes all the time.
there are more suits somewhere in my inventory, i dont know if they work for roth will figure out
happy to see you again Otto :)
me too, great to see you cherry :)
This is turning from a party to a who's who. Whom else should we expect tonight? Linda Kellie? Selea Core?
Klarabella, I remember finding your freebies back in 2009 and thinking, wow, free things by generous people. Made me want to make things too
Thirza, you should check Klara's freebies now. *cough* hippie coats *cough*
: I am only a playing around with different things for "home-use"
In Dorenas-World we try to keep as much as possible to keep things free to copy. Most places in Dorenas-World can be explored on foot - unlike other grids most SIMs are directly connected - drawback: there are SIM-crossings, but the advantages are more
If you've got some sort of Ruth2, don't forget to visit Klara's shoe store in the Westend.
Thanks for the tip, Juno. I am wearing a Ruth
Oh, and if you don't know, I've had the first dedicated Ruth2/Roth2 store outside Austin's own sim.
Jupiters Ruth2/Roth2 Store is 256m south from here, at the feet of Ms liberty
GridTalk sim on Dorenas-world
This grid will keep you busy for days, if not weeks. Even I keep discovering new things, and that isn't because Ana keeps building, or because I suddenly have two new neighbours
37 Avatars + 1 NPC ... no performance issues yet
Its a stable Grid...
with almost everyone dancing, that lightens the load on the server
don't tell the server we're dancing!! it thinks were being good and sitting quietly
Let's stir 'em up a bit with a provocative question...
so who here wants opensim to become much bigger and more commercial?
Thirza, I don't.
hrmmm.... bigger yes, some commercial, yes. How it's going now, just needs more people. Foundations are here, just need money to pay people to make it sparkle
Thirza, bigger yes, commercial no
[12:19] Thirza.Ember @hg.osgrid.org: so who here wants opensim to become much bigger and more commercial? <--- NOBODY!
We don't all have to think the same way, to get along, and hearing other people's viewpoints is healthy. One of the more valuable parts of gridjumping, don't you think?
Dorena and Anachron
And then, just like that, it was time to go. Next stop, Karima Hoisan's 'The Wizard' immersive experience on Kitely.
have fun Safaristas!
have a nice trip
happy birthday dorenas world!!
Good night to all the Safaristas who are leaving now!
working very well for so many peeps, dorena, good work!
have fun Safari-people
The fun had already begun by the time I got to Kitely, I cammed out and found Cherry looking pensive, somewhere over the rainbow. Just to be still, standing and enjoying this build, is a lovely feeling. Not my feeling, because of, you know, stuff going on. I usually wait at the first destination until I am sure that sure any afk or stragglers have the LM and aren't abandoned.
Beth explains the work of the VWBPE to some new friends
I hear bears active in the woods :)
What fun sooo many, I have no idea what might happen, lots of screaming
29 people in the sim lol. I do wonder what will happen!
okay i think i got my settings right, here we go!
please don't crash
well we have not destroyed the sim yet
Oh good! amazing. I am going to ride.
And off she went.
After that energetic dancing on Dorenas-world, Lucy found a nice quiet corner, and as is her wont, made a couple of new friends. We have all spoken to Lucy about talking to strangers, but she does it anyway, and I apologize for it. Just kidding!

showed up, but his OSCC avatar was messing about, and kept logging him out. It's so frustrating when that happens, there might be one of a dozen reasons for it, and you'll likely never figure out which. Or in this case, wizard.
The Frenchies of Ignis arrived. For some reason, they never have the notecard, and (like me) never read it if they have it, so it was down to me to play host in some appalling french.
ok sans ao
on prende le cheval et on part
mais il faut avoir media play automatique pour ecouter tous
Ouch, right. Still, it seemed to do the trick.
got the hang of it immediately, and only my slowness with making a gif prevents you seeing him doing a very strange dance with some pandas. But here he is on horseback. Yes, there are pandas, and no, I have no idea why.
Chip riding off into the woods
The build is a poem and you, the traveller, are sort of the punctuation in it. You slip in between the phases and phrases, up in the air like quotes, then slipping down to be a comma in the woods, then dashing down the stream to that final exclamation of particles at the end. All very parenthetical. Just don't stand, or you'll get lost in the woods. Not a bad metaphor for gridjumping in a crowd.
Strange sounds and amazing animations kept happening. Moments after I took this pic of Jessica, an iconic mashup of looks that is sort of the signature of our hypergrid trips, she suddenly yelled out...
MY HORSE TURNED INTO A BOAT!!
Karima, Dale, and the lifted pixel floating off downstream
what a trip!
Explorer Cherry with some.... friends?
huge work, congrats
oh yes!! I hope I won't dream bad this night *gg* no kidding, that was great, awsome!! thank you
Truelie in the bubbles
So much work. Very impressive!
It's a big one :)
: is this available at other times too? everyone should see it
It's basically always here. It works a little more smoothly if there are only a couple of people doing it at once :)
hahahaha aww, come on... and we didn't even break it
We've never had > 12 before
thank you so much for this experience
I will definitively come back
Dabici and Kelso at the bit with the ghost ship.
And unlike me,
knows what he is talking about. He is a gifted scripter, just visit
and see the crosscountry ski trip, which is an absolutely flawless ride around a var region, with loads of variety and special effects!
Can most of you hear the sounds? Its on Media
I heard it
the sound completed the atmosphere
yes, I can hear, mouselook for parts is awesome, too
yes, nice clear voice
Karima is famous as a poet in SL, her voice is unmistakable
It's definitely better if you can get the media working
it makes no sense if you can't haha ha it still makes no sense, but:):)
This would make a great Immersive Experience for VWBPE
this is triggering big time asmr I really enjoyed
yes, definitely will redo a tour by my own later to see everything again
We're very glad you enjoy
thank you so much for this huuuuge work , fabulous, good nite all ♥
See you all next week
Make mine a large
We retired to the bar. If you were on Safari and missed this bit (after the big particle show at the end of the ride, the door marked 'Exit' takes you into the bar lounge) you might want to re-visit because it merits a look jut on its own, for the lovely drawings on the wall.
this red wine is excellent. Sigh, some got hopelessly lost but there is only so much one can do. /does nothing more
ya gotta trust the horse, once you start the ride, even when it wasn't there any more
yes, even when it was a boat!
Dale and Karima, and Geo saying goodbye
weird if anything... but different
and beautiful, as long as I didn't fret about the weirdities! a lovely time has been had, indeed. Karima, what a lovely experience, thanks so much for your artistry
Ohh thank you, so glad you had fun, was amazing to host you all, it's a first
Handled the crowd fine. Was a fun experience, out of the ordinary. Thanks!
