Babbage Travelogue: Obolensky Observatory

I had been planning on starting a new series of webposts documenting the New Babbage sims as it seems that just as you get familiar with a building, it will disappear.

A case in point: The Obolensky Observatory

 The Obolensky Observatory in the Vernian Sea

The Death Ray


 One of the Smashington's guarding the building

Sadly, due to a number of factors, Doctor Obolensky (or "Doc O" as he us more usually known) has decided to scale back on his SL involvement. His buildings skills as well as his flare for the dramatic will be missed. Which of course leads us to the next big thing in New Babbage entertainment, the villain evil-offs (bad-offs? Twirl-offs?)

I mean someone will have to try and outdo the other for positions of New Babbage's worst citizen right?

I'll be continuing this series will look at the rest of the Babbage sims very soon.

Such a nice death ray, too! That's sad to hear about the Doc - damn that real life thing!

The fact that buildings appear and then disappear is a problem for RP sims in particular. Babbage seems to fare better than most, in part because the replacement building tends to be in theme, fitting in well with its surroundings - I assume we should thank the Clockwinder for that. Caledon is rather hopeless that way - one day someone will take a half sim to build something magnificent, if not necessarily congruent with the neighborhood, and a month later the build will be gone and nothing will look the same.

I think it's worthwhile to preserve the interesting stuff in photos, so I look forward to more of these posts.
