Skyboxes and Atolls

While flying about photographing FairChang I noticed the amazing and original skyboxes here. Unfortunately there are a number of parcels that have no building or landscaping at ground level. It tends to give the sim a barren aspect. While this is in no way against our Covenant, I think with just a little bit of effort the area will be more attractive to the neighbors and all who pass by.

You could terraform the land into an atoll as shown in the two pictures below.

Of course you do not have to use so many trees and rocks if prims are an issue, One or two of the one prim Linden palm trees would be ideal.

The new feature of 'Sim Extensions or Off Shore Reefs' can also be used inside a sim. Some of them are smallish and of only four prims and are quite attractive. You can sink the entire parcel and then place one of the islands or grouping of rocks.

This is a picture of one of the rock groupings, only four prims and costs L$399. You can see it placed on the FairChang protected waterway in FairChang Cabos. They are phantom so you can just sail through!

This little island is L$199 and also is made up from four prims.
Both of these can be purchased from Antreas Alter

Another resource is Tobias Novi

These are just two that we know of. I am sure there are many more.

As always please check to keep updated with the latest.
