On the skylevel of NeoVictoria SIM is our out-of-character (OOC) Visitor Center. This self-paced walking tour explains the Neo-verse and guides players through different aspects of the project, including the history of the storyworld, the races available for play, how to build the avatar, and teleporters to take avatars to the land level (our roleplay zone). The Visitor Center also has an abundance of role-play related gifts, as well as the givers for our RP HUD.

We always do a mini-hunt: this one may be the most amusing ever!

We have five gifts staged throughout our Visitor’s Center on the skylevel of NeoVictoria SIM.

Here’s the list:

  • 2016 Souvenir Calendar
  • Fully-furnished Skybox (or Houseboat)
  • Mer Poser
  • Angler Headlight
  • NPC Attack Fish

The hunt always begins at the Steampunk Information Centre in Mieville Doyle and runs the entire month of March.  However, if you’d like to visit NeoVictoria right now, here’s the SLUrl: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/NeoVictoria/16/128/1003.

A New Roleplay Tool!

Since April 2013, we’ve used a roleplay tool, created by jade2022 kaligawa.  It was a wonderful tool-set when we transitioned away from the Community Combat System (CCS), and really helped the project to thrive.  However, in  April 2015, the developer had to take their personal server off-line; the loss of the server meant some of the admin functions stopped working.  It became clear a tool that worked entirely within SL was needed.

Announcing the NeoVictoria Roleplay Tool (NRT)!

We’ve developed a simple free wearable object called the “NeoVictoria Roleplay Tool (NRT)” which allows the player to create unique names for their characters, offers chat-options in terms of what other players can see when that character speaks, and includes a variety of dice.

This tool was developed by the members of the NeoVictoria Roleplay Group and scripted by Jhaesoph Foxdale.  The object is copy/transfer, and may be acquired by touching the many giver-objects we have staged throughout the Skymall on Machinima SIM, and the Visitor Center on NeoVictoria SIM.

NeoVictoria Gifts for Steam 10: Seat
In the NeoVictoria storyworld, magic and technology come together to serve the needs of the citizenry. Rather than harnessing the powers of oil or the atom, they have devised a way to capture the essence of a creature (some might call it the spirit or soul) to use as an energy source.
Here in this covered seat, a captive soul within a crystal container is used to make light in the covering above the seat.
NeoVictoria Gifts for Steam 10: Toast HUD
Welcome to the NeoVictoria Steam X Drinking and Toast HUD! This device was initially made as a roleplay aid, but can also be used to easily animate your avatar while holding unscripted drinks!  Includes an unscripted, modifiable mesh wine glass!

Credits: As always, the items were built by members of our community. Thanks to Tarquin Evermore for the boats and the dream orb; to Vic Titanium for the scripts that drive the boats; to QuarkZen for the covered seat; to OhDearMe and Jhaesoph Foxdale for the HUD; to Asil Ares for the traps and calendar; and to Myomy for the mesh wine glass. Special mention to MadMechaMessiah & DarlaDoll for crafting the hints!

Our Gifts

Because NeoVictoria’s land-level is only for in-character (IC) interactions, so we’re doing the hunt in our Visitor Center on our out-of-character (OOC) skymall. We are doing a mini-hunt; there are two prizes and all the gift gears are located in the domed buildings that are part of our Visitor Center.

To reach the first gift-gear, from our rezz-in point, please take the teleporter to the Visitor Center.  Simply touch the sign that says “Visitor Center” and a teleporter beam will appear. Right-click on this, then choose transport from the resulting menu.

Important: As of this writing, there is an error for our location on the hunt site.  The SLUrl for NeoVictoria is http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/NeoVictoria/17/128/1004.
