Today I spent time in the Temple of the Gods sim – one part museum, one part shop, one part nightclub.

Wow – the detail was incredible! This is one of the most detailed and immersive sims in SL.

A few tweaks and it will reach a 24 karat gold standard. Firstly, the museum needed more interactivity. There is no reason to put re-creations of Egyptian artefacts behind virtual glass and rope – let us play with them! Secondly, there needed to be citations on the information provided in the museum.

Those two observations aside — visiting this Sim was an amazing experience and for me demonstrates how close SL is to providing a return in terms of experience and learning on the investment of time and effort to use it.

The Second Life URL for this simulation is : http://slurl.com/secondlife/Promised%20Land/72/53/22/?title=temple_of_the_gods

A word to those of tender and delicate sensibilities – the nightclub is vampire/goth themed so if you didn’t like any of Anne Rice’s novels, you may just want to stick to the museum and the shop.
