The Bay Area Boat System (BABS) group promotes travel in the virtual world There.com by supporting a large network of landing towers for hoverboat crafts. Tours and floatilla events are set up by BABS for large groups of Thereians to travel around the There islands while making new friends and sharing good times together.
Join tonight’s Monday Night Floatilla! Everyone meets at the event location and several hoverboat crafts are set out for Thereians to pilot or kickback and enjoy the ride as a passenger. Hop on your favorite hoverboat and take flight with some friends. If the floatilla has already left the first location and you are late to the party, you can catch up with the flight crew in the BABS IM on the BABS Club Home Page and request a summons to the floatilla. Join the group to stay up to date on BABS events!
The Sunshine and Tan Lines event kicks off next week in the 3-D virtual world There promoting fun summer activities to do with friends online while beating the heat in real life. This week we plan on highlighting unique Summer Spots you can visit in There. We’re on the hunt for the best virtual pools, hot tubs, swimming holes and beaches that inspire that carefree summertime feeling when hanging out with friends.
While exploring the waterways of the Fantasy Island Neighborhood, we stumbled upon a beautiful waterfall spanning the length of the water channel. Upon closer inspection, we discovered the entrance to an underwater cave on top of the falls and couldn’t resist taking the plunge into the underwater environment.
If you have never had the opportunity to swim in the ocean in There, this is your chance to experience a unique and serene underwater world. As you walk down through the entrance to the cave and submerge your avatar underwater, the tranquility and beauty of the sea life below inspires a sense of calm and relaxation.
A blanket of colorful shells and bottom dwelling sea creatures span the sandy floor of the cavern. Large schools of fish dart back and forth around your head with a nervous energy. Up close the water is a calm and tranquil shade of blue, but off in the distance it grows dark and murky. You can make out large shadows slowly gliding through the water. The curious movements draw you to the back of the cavern. A shipwreck from long ago dots the underwater landscape. The amount of bountiful booty strewn about in broken chests is a treasure hunter’s dream.
The calming effects of the underwater environment give off a sense of safety as you explore deeper towards the back of the cavern. Camouflaged in the drifting beds of kelp, giant avie-eating sharks lurk waiting for the next unsuspecting swimmer.
Luckily we don’t have Health in There, because otherwise it would be GAME OVER for any Avie brave enough to swim through these shark infested waters without a safety cage.
In addition to great white sharks and schools of fish, there are several mystical creatures who inhabit the underwater environment as well. We encountered beautiful mermaids, a shy water dragon and a very friendly octopus in our exploration under the sea.
Take the plunge and explore the amazing and unique Underwater Environment created by Lynn_2. We highly recommend visiting this one of a kind Summer Spot in There! If you are not a strong swimmer, we suggest using a flotation device and the buddy system to avoid being shark bait.
