S & N Adorable Skins and Fashions

image01

This week we are going to showcase S & N Adorable Skins and Fashions.
Upon landing at the store on Iskandria, I found everything to be easily accessible.  There are quite a number of skins on sale, all at a very reasonable price. All come with a shape which is a bonus. S & N also have complete avatars on sale which make it so easy to upgrade your avatar.
As I walked around I thought, “maybe I should not let Suzie know”. But as it turns out, she already knows, and owns one or maybe two already. Then I spotted the Fashion. S & N has a large range of outfits on sale and  I could not help but think these are all of the highest quality. The  all around store is  beautiful, and yes it has been very well laid out.  I see a lot of thought went into the planning so the customers can experience stress free shopping. So there you have it a awesome shopping experience. Thank You and well done  nikita Jefferson and Samantha Boa2 a store well worth a visit.

Blender Classes to start In Virtual Highway

Some of you may already have Blender installed, but for the sake of simplicity and to make it easier to understand the basics I’d like us all to use the same version, since they do vary on some functions. Below are links to some items to download in advance of this very basic of classes. We will also be using “Joinme” a meeting tool where all participants can watch me on their browser and be able to follow along on your own computer. If you are using a laptop without an extended number pad please let me know in advance, also. We need to make some minor preference changes in the program for that. Some of these sites you need to sign-up for a free account, and most have lots more Blender resources, downloads and such.

Geo Falcone has planned the Blender intro class for the weekend of Feb 21 & 22. Please let Geo Falcone know if you will be able to attend or not. He would like to to do it in 2 or 3 small groups so if you could also let him  know the time of day works best he would appreciate it. For resources please take a copy of the  blender class information box at the Virtual Highway Landing.

The Realm of Ferndale, Role Play in Virtual Highway

Ferndale had its Grand Opening Sunday the 25th of January, and what a success, everyone who made it there were thrilled at the look of this wonderful period, thankyou to all who came to celebrate it with Virtual Highway. Ferndale, (named after the copious amounts of wild ferns that grow in the region), is a bustling Medieval town that was founded several hundred years ago.  Situated in the North West corner of the continent, Ferndale has become a popular stopping point for many explorers and travelers who arrive in the port, or through the scenic central valley.  With a population of just over 1000 people, Ferndale continues to grow and is becoming a center for commerce and prosperity. There certainly is an abundance of culture and things to do in Ferndale.  If equestrian sports is your strength, make sure to check out the jousting arena.  Tournaments are held frequently there and many a brave Knight has entered that contest. We will periodically schedule Roleplaying Classes here in Avalon.  Check this note regularly to find out about dates and times for these scheduled classes.  Individual instructions can be provided with advance reservation.  Please contact Zoltan Mint for more information. There are many more RP areas to come and are in the build process.

About Zoltan Mint

Zoltan Mint is a dedicated builder and event coordinator both in RL and virtual worlds and has been for 6 years. In Zoltans words I simply want to build a fun place to play games, run live entertainment, and role play in many different genres – Virtual Highway seems to be the perfect place for that!  (And that’s a quote!) and help the fine people of VH make some money too!.

We are very excited to have this awesome RP area, be sure to check it out.

Ferndale

 

There is a new Board at the landing for you all to voice your concerns or complaints, these concerns or complaints will be then read by Virtual Highways Marketing Manager, and passed on to the appropriate person. Please feel free to use this Board and know that your problems and concerns are ours.

 


Celebrating Virtual Highway for 2014

What a Year!!!
Virtual Highway throughout the 2014 period saw many new things not to mention the many exciting projects and openings.

The 14th of February also known as Valentines day saw a amazing buildoff and many music events. Saint Patricks day, March 17th was a very green time, also with build offs and events, with everyone one in the Irish Spirit. The 5th and 6th of April Virtual highway was visited by the Easter Bunny with the Spring Festival, there was events and build offs. The 4th of July was a very patriotic time with the good ol red white and blue waving high, the build off was a great success even with a visit from Obama in one of them. With witches flying and goblins sneaking Halloween was a horror with Silent Hill as Virtual Highways main attraction, the screams and dripping blood was enough to scare anyone. Being thankful for all we have is what the 26th of November is all about, Thanksgiving turkeys running, and happiness everywhere. Christmas was awesome Santa, elves, and the amazing North pole, events in the ice castle. New years eve saw the saying of goodbyes to 2014 and hello to 2015.

There were many concerts highlighting such bands and singers as Kiss,The Eagles,Queen,Led Zepplin, Nickelback.

In 2014 we saw many live entertainers, Declan Greenfield,Dilah, Halostar, CelticMaiden, Warrior Lancaster,Andremus Miklos,Anek Fuchs,Ceci Dover,Pink Vampire, Phoe Nix,Mitch Triellis,Jimmyt49 Dukes,KatRose Serendipity,Russell Eponym. Thankyou to all these entertainers.

In 2014 the proceeds from the events were donated to St Judes Childrens Hospital. Virtual Highway is proud that we raised 158 us dollars for this awesome cause.


Halloween in Virtual Highway: Silent Hill


Halloween in Virtual Highway was more than just an event this year. It was also another means of fundraising for a very worthy cause…St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. With a Movie Quiz, a build off contest, a best costume contest, a seal contest, a month long Rat Race contest, and a place to establish a shop (for vendors selling Halloween related items) there were a number of events within the Halloween Event to keep residents interested and excited about this event.

The contest winners were:

Megan Cline, Outlaw61 Dreadlow, Susie Sak & Mad Tophat


Led Zeppelin Tribute

Saturday night saw Platinum Tone Productions hosting a Led Zeppelin Tribute Stage Show. What set this apart from previous tribute shows was the fact that all proceeds from this show was to be donated to St. Jude’s Childrens Hospital.

The crowd that came out to support this tribute show were treated to a selection of the best of Led Zeppelin’s great music. The show was an unqualified success, bringing in V$7000 for this worthwhile hospital, which does not charge their patients for being treated there.


Outie’s Journey, Part Two

In my continued wanderings, I have visited more regions that have sparked my imagination; here are some more impressions…

Blue Moon

On landing I found myself in a space station with tunnels to different areas just waiting for me to explore.
Mated for Life has been linked into the theme of “Avatar” and has skins and shapes to offer. It also offers accessories such as feet and eyes. This Sim is very well planned out.

Pandoran Museum of Natural History

On to the Pandoran Museum of Natural History, I found strange plants and trees waiting to be bought and taken home. You will find many interesting things here to see.

La Nebia’s Shops Network

La Nebia’s Shops Network is where you can buy some really very interesting skins in the theme of Avatar.

Touching the teleport sign, it transported me to the lower level of the space station. Here you will find teleports to other interesting areas on “Blue Moon” and a welcome kit………….This has all the information on this role play area.

Tsun

This was very pleasant surprised. Tsun, is strangely wonderful with the iridescent landscapes and colorful plant life with a gorgeous waterfall. While here you can shoot your arrows at the targets or just walk around and take in this wonderfully designed place.

Banshee Mountains

Like Tsun, Banshee’s Mountains are also very colorful and alive with moving branches and rippling water. This area has a very pretty waterfall with a strange looking tower which looks either like a maze or twisted vines. This is well worth a look.

Pandoran Plains

This is a land of strange plants and small villages made from straw. I would say almost prehistoric with its weird shaped animals and flora. What can I say a very cool place to visit.

Training Faculty

I flew into the Training Faculty to be greeted with food! Yes you hear it, food. It’s a very well stocked eating area. It made me hungry just looking at it. Upstairs is the medical training area with all the most modern equipment. This is for everyone’s well-being.


The Kiss Concert was a great success!

kiss

What a wonderful time everyone had on the 9th of August, when “Kiss” made an appearance for a concert in our very own “Virtual Highway”. With their awesome songs being played, everyone had a ball and the stage and dance floor combined to create the wow factor that is Kiss.

A bit of history, the four man band was formed in New York City in December 1972, and has rocked the music world with their outstanding music for a 40 year career.

Band Members were played by:

Danny Berg who played Gene Simmons,

Tank Rugani played Peter,

Gabe Collingwood played Ace and

Logger Sewell Played Paul.

Their fantastic costumes and makeup were made by Suzie Sak and Megan Cline. You two did a very professional job ladies, thank you from all of us in “Virtual Highway”.

The professional stage was purchased from Logger Sewell.  Thanks and a very fine stage, well done.

Lighting was donated by Trixie Noel thank you very much Trixie.

A very awesome dance floor was created by Megan Cline. Thank you so much Megan.

An amazing wonderful night was had by all that attended this special concert …..

 

Bravo Virtual Highway!
We can’t wait for the next concert.

Independence Day…


Independence Day for our American residents was one of two celebrations Virtual Highway took part in this year. This was also the one year anniversary of Festival Park, the location for our holiday celebrations. Thanks to the work of Megan Cline, Suzie Sak, Geo Falcone, Melina Horten and Trixie Noel, Festival Park was transformed into a slice of Americana. We had a barn for the DJs to spin their tunes, a build area for the 4th of July build contest, a maze with prizes available, and a shop area for vendors to sell their Independence Day related wares. The build up to the 4th of July celebration featured music of a variety of genres from our excellent DJs as those that participated in the build contest did their thing.

The build contest showed imagination this year. The winner of the contest was Tori Benoir with her build of a patriotically dressed Betty Boop cake; 2nd place ended with a tie between Trixie Noel’s hot air balloon and gemini solano’s statue and pond; 3rd place went to Danny Berg with his build of a Presidential visit. Logger Sewell gained an honorable mention for his 4th of July cookout. Congratulations to all winners, and to all who participated. These contests make our holiday celebrations that much more fun!

We would like to thank the following for donating prizes for the maze:
Francisco Koolhoven
Danny Berg
gemini solano
Tori Benoir
Trixie Noel
Doreese Dufaux
Logger Sewell

The 4th of July celebration was brought to a rousing finale with a spectacular fireworks display provided by Split Prim and Trixie Noel. Tendrik provided some inspirational music to which Trixie blended the fireworks show, each building to an awe-inspiring crescendo! Our thanks to Tendrik, Trixie and Split for the spectacular display!

Thank you and well done to all that participated in building the 4th of July set at the Festival Park sim. Thank you to the DJs that entertain us during the holiday celebrations. Finally, thank you to all residents that come and support this holiday sim.

 

…special thanks to Tank (write-up) & Suzie (pix)


Grand Opening of the Back Door…

The Back Door offered a sneak preview in advance of their grand opening, scheduled for June 2, 2014, from 4-8pm PDT. In conjunction with the sneak preview, Virtual Highway welcomed a new DJ, Rose Brown, to the grid. Her set was a mix of excellent rock ‘n’ roll and some very funny songs. She was well received by a good sized crowd, as many residents were curious to see this new venue!

The Back Door had a successful Grand Opening on June 2, 2014. DJ Tank kicked off the entertainment, spinning a hot set of southern fried rock, with DJ Justme rounding out the entertainment with an excellent 2-fer set! During the event, gifts of Back Door t-shirts were offered to all who attended…with the shirts being gender specific.

There was a nice crowd, the conversation was electric, and all enjoyed the opening of this new venue. A special congratulations to Tori Benoir and Cherokee Kuhn…for a job very well done in putting the Back Door Bar together!


Outie’s Journey, Part One

In my wanderings I have visited some regions that have really sparked my imagination; here are my impressions of some of them…..

Enigma

When I first landed at Enigma, as it rezzed it was as though I was in a fairytale book, complete with the “Alice in Wonderland” mushrooms and the tall towers, reminiscent of “Beauty and the Beast”, just waiting to be climbed and explored. In the towers there are shafts of sunlight shining through the stained glass windows and their reflections on the marble floor are so well crafted. There is a small chapel so quaint and whimsical.  As I explored further it changed to an almost “Steam-Punk” theme with buildings and a steam ship. It’s very nice region and well built.

Tropical Paradise

Landing in a pergola, I was greeted by an island girl dressed in a grass skirt and lei. Off in the distance one can see many colorful plants and palm trees. This region has so much to offer, from the mesmerizing waterfalls to long quiet white sandy beaches where you can relax, chat with friends and even get a tan! There is a very beautiful club house to visit with friends. You can have a few drinks and watch the sunset.The rope bridges can be used to explore the entire island and there are also secret cuddle-caves to be discovered.The entertainment area is also beautifully made with the fish swimming beneath the glass dance floor.  To top this region off the music fits in with the theme beautifully.

Dreamcatcher 1

A hop skip and a jump and I landed in Dreamcatcher1. Here there are beautiful ponds to sit and ponder the day away, and wonderfully reasonable rental homes, they range from homes with many rooms, to a beautiful open floor plan living space.  The landscaped gardens and surrounding area is breathtaking. Well worth a look especially if you’re looking for that perfect home.

Dreamcatcher 2

Just as beautiful as Dreamcatcher 1, this is another wonderful setting where you get the feeling you just want to live. At the landing there is a beautiful pergola area with seats and a warming fire, overlooking the ponds and living areas… It’s beautiful

Valhalla Lodge

A Viking themed meeting place nestling in the trees and against a mountain and waterfall backdrop. The Lodge has a very large area and an enormous log fire where everyone can sit and talk. The Enclave Dance Club just across the way as are Adventura Mall and Out of Time Architecture.

Spring has finally arrived

tank dj event3  the 15th tank dj event the 15th tank dj event 2 the 15th

…and that was never more evident than at Virtual Highway’s Spring Festival. A month-long celebration of the arrival of warmer weather and the arrival of flowers and the activity of critters!

Throughout the month of Spring Festival, Virtual Highway was entertained by a host of our finest DJs, as they brought their events to the Festival sim and spun a wide variety of music.

We also held a build contest, with the theme being…Spring, of course. The winners of the build contest were as follows:

1st Place: GDubYaa Voom

2nd Place: gemini solano

3rd Place: Trixie Noel

Congratulations to the winners! Also, our thanks to those that participated in the building of the Spring Festival sim, and to those that performed for the entertainment of all Virtual Highway residents.

CONGRATULATIONS Geo and Mel,

New Talent on the Highway

AnekFuchsCP

A quiet Friday night came alive with the Virtual Highway debut of Anek Fuchs at Central Park. Anek’s smooth vocals and great range were well on display, highlighted by an excellent rendition of Music of the Night from Phantom of the Opera. His vocals show a great and flexible range, and he wowed us from a variety of genres and included classics such as House of the Rising Sun and Nights in White Satin. Add in some excellent guitar work, and you have the first of two rousing and awe-inspiring live debut performances!

TheGarage032214

Saturday night saw the Virtual Highway debut of jimmyt49 dukes…and what a debut! Jimmy’s strong blues inspired guitar work and gritty vocals on such tunes as B.B.King’s The Thrill is Gone, or his original composition, Hellfire, blew the roof off of the Garage, the location of his debut.

Many of jimmy’s fans from other grids found their way to Virtual highway for his awe-inspiring opening performance. When asked how he felt following his incredible Virtual Highway debut show, jimmyt49 said, “Tonight’s show was the first show I have done in years where the love of playing for my friends was front and centered in my heart….and the response was amazing. Definitely found a new home!” All this writer can say is…”Welcome home, jimmy!”

Bike Week 2014

BikeWeekAwards

With a rousing finale, Bike Week 2014 comes to an end.

Wolf Mistwalker and Justme Troncon, founders of the Garage on the Woodstock I sim, sponsored and hosted Bike Week to run in conjunction with the actual Bike Week, which is held annually in Daytona, FL. They set up and held a bike building contest to show those that chose to enter what is involved in building a bike…and to allow those members to have their own build once the contest is done. It is their love of bikes that spurred the decision to have a Bike Week event, and they were overwhelmed at the participation shown during this week-long event.

The following residents built and submitted bikes for the Bike Build Contest:

Fearghus McMahon
Tori Benoir
Tank Rugani
Gabe Collingwood
gemini solano
Andrew Hellershanks
Megan Cline
Tendrik Carr
Trixie Noel
GDubYaa Voom
logger Sewell
Sarge Misfit

Fearghus McMahon and Sarge Misfit, new residents to Virtual Highway, joined to participate in Bike Week events after hearing about it on a blog post on Google Plus.


After allowing several days for residents to vote for their favorite builds, the top three winners were announced, and they were:

3rd Place: (tie) Trixie Noel & Gabe Collingwood who won an award and V$1000 each
2nd Place: Tori Benoir who won an award and V$3000
and the winner, 1st Place: Tank Rugani who won an award and V$5000

The voting was tight, as all contestants submitted fine quality bikes. They will all, as a bonus for entering, keep the bikes they built! Congratulations and well done to all builders!

Additionally, there was a Teddy Bear Hunt. Three bears, each worth V$1000, were hidden somewhere within the grid. LoneWolf Rhode, found TWO of the bears…one at Kaj Qinan’s Bayou, in her kitty bed and the other in the shop near Saints and Sinners, the new club which held it’s grand opening as part of Bike Week festivities. The bear not found was sitting in a chair on the second level of the Plantation Club on Moonlight Bayou.

The response to Bike Week by the residents of VH was tremendous and very positive, and a huge congratulations and thank you to WOLF MISTWALKER and JUSTME TRONCON for putting on this event. Some of our best DJs kept The Garage hopping, and a great time was had by all in what will hopefully become an annual event!

And lastly, a word from the sponsors…
