Another year sees the end of RFL. Either I'm mellowing out or the level of Rah Rah Rah around where I live and play has managed to get to levels where I don't find it a headache. Of course the debate has risen that the level of Rah Rah Rah around where I live and play has become passive rather than active but that's another debate and one my views are well known on.
While many want to wear their hearts
on their sleeves and pour out Hallmark-card worthy stories, I've always
appreciated the builds put together. This year's theme "Time for a
Cure" saw the makers of sculpted hourglasses become wealthy overnight
but sadly saw very few Robert Smith pictures (I only saw one). And mazes
seemed popular this year. Go figure.
The New Babbage Clocktower
Which features dancing figurines that chimed the quarter hour
And an Orrery
And a day/month face
And some impressive gargoyle figurines
Better still the interior (which reminded me of Crossness Pumping Station) was an accurate working clock mechanism!
Lanterns for Life
Cierra Anatine's exploding clockface
PHC for Life
An excellent maze garden, whose creator I sadly forgot to note
Devil's Reign Motorcycle group
Rathmeous Dagger and Alecto Vella built a VAST lab. Giant scale as shown by the track running through the middle of it.
Armada's sim build.
Cole Eyre's sim sized watch
Very simple build by The Fringe
Barnesworth Anubis's stunning memorial to caregivers and survivors
Aether Chrononauts team's roller-coaster clock
Alia Baroque's gorgeous seaside build. Atlantean Deco?
Lovely Egyptian build
Jalynne Ohmai's gorgeous designer build
More from Jalynne Ohmai
Amoreetto Breedable's build
This stunning build from
Kingdom Between Two Seas gave us something like Barbie meets the Stepford Wives.
Harmony of Hope's recreation of New York's Times Square
Touched by Angels' creates a fairytale maze
I loved this Cathedral under construction from Walking Tall For a Cure
Caledon's Steampunk Genome Factory.
Advocacy to Awareness had a very Art Deco feel to their build
Raglanshire came up with a wonderfully fun build
With Anubunnies that followed you
And waffle pyramids
Which then moved into Steampunk
Complete with giant top hats
And on into the future
With spacesuited tinies on segways
The Fancy Pug Palace. Huge. As if a Russian themed casino was opened in Las Vegas and owned by pugs
Someone really likes pugs
Team Okie Dokie's build was fascinating. It only lacked a roller coaster car
Team Full Moon's lovely contemplative build
A Lewis Carol inspired build from
I love the clock face on this one
Riders for a Cure present the biggest cogs in RFL
This 2 sim stunning creation from the Elf Circle team
The RFL Events pavilion was centred over the conjunction of 4 sims. Still lagged like hell
Breedables! I didn't realise there were so many
I not-so-secretly want a Meeroo shoulder pet. Not a breedable or anything just an animated shoulder pet. Someone make one of these now.
A lovely Asian build from a team whose name I missed
Steelhead's impressive series of arches and clocks
The Passionate Redheads team build looked better in the dark. I'm sure there's a line there but I'll refrain
And the build from the Doctor Who Fans was brilliant.
That's it for another year. Some great builds as always. And as much lag as you can eat.
