Not sure how to begin this post without sounding like I am blowing a very blaringly immodest horn, but really I just want to share the miracle..that somehow fate made me a “builder” on the virtual alternative and growing world of Kitely- Virtual Worlds on Demand.
I have told this story and several variations of it before, over the past two years. I “blame” my sudden impulse to create virtual worlds on my friend and mentor DB Bailey.
DB (David Denton Architect in RL) who is always ahead of just about everyone,and invited me to come see a world he was building on a place called Kitely, that at that moment was in beta testing, and was inviting people to come create anything they wanted at absolutely no cost.
I will include here a small machinima I made for DB and this world (in my very primitive and novice style) below:
Now, two years later, I have many worlds that I created on Kitely, and Kitely has grown up and out of beta testing stage, and has begun its metamorphosis into a thriving virtual community (Complete with its own Marketplace.)
Yesterday I got an email from one of my oldest friends on Kitely – Virtual Worlds on Demand, Lawrence Pierce who is owner and creator of “Serenity Island,” one of the most beautiful worlds to be found there, telling me about the creation of a Welcome Center and a place that housed and Showcased some of the more interesting worlds.
Below I will do a bit of my own Showcasing and show you some more of my favorites too:
Daniel also paid my world “Float” a visit and we struck up a friendship.
Mat Mahogany, another Kitely friend, who is a real builder has some great worlds to explore.
The most loved creator perhaps (surely in my book) has to be Linda Kellie because her hundreds- closer- to -thousands of very useful and beautiful merchandise was given away freely to everyone in her Mall and other locations. Before Linda, I had to invent my clothes, my furniture, and my everything, and she was the first to say, “Here, use any of this if you like” to the whole virtual community at large. I love that kind of pure generosity.
“Evergreen” by Devokan Trust is a nice steampunk serene atmosphere to explore:
Now… to the immodest boasting part… Lawrence Pierce said he was very happy to find along one side of the showcase area, an entire wall of my worlds.
There they were, sure enough, when I came in today to see the installation. Five worlds, five obsessive passions of a poet who never thought she could build, and yet on Kitely she went almost crazy building one themed installation after another. I give them to you below:
“Deeper” has its own crudely but lovingly made machinina too, which you can see below”
My last world along the wall is this one below. It was my 2nd build, and also one of my more “normal… less dark and more romantic ones”
I want to thank Ilan Tochner, CEO of Kitely – Virtual Worlds on Demand and my very first friend more than two years ago too, for the honor of including 5 of my worlds (I have created 8 in all) in this tasteful exhibition of a selection of public Kitely worlds at the Welcome Center. The whole installation is serene and well done, and I invite you all to come see it and wander over to the Kitely Worlds Showcase and visit and click on one of them to teleport to it and explore. I promise you, if you can make a prim, it would be worth your while to get your own world, and let your imagination out to romp and play. I did…and look what happened:)
