Hello everyone I wanted to update you about con.tin.u.um
We have set some of the regions to Smart Start which is similar to Kitely in that the regions load when you select the map and teleport using the map - the region will load then you will be teleported to the region. Setting the grid to Smart Start freed up lots of CPU usage as the regions are not online until selected to start. Sometimes you have to click the map twice for it to work and also you need to stay put as it takes a few moments to teleport you. Our main regions are not Smart Start, just the ones not used often such as Abandoned, Sandbox, Cannabis Information Center. Please let me know if you have any issues, teleporting around grid. Thank you Fred Beckhusen for making this possible!!

Summer Bangle can be found in the foyer of Monentes Jewelry store
Free/Full perms continuum.outworldz.net:8002:Monentes Jewelry

con.tin.u.um's welcome region Bastion has a beautiful cove called Curled Sun. Seashells come in with the tides, some have gifts inside. Seashells change with the tides, always leaving something new to find.
continuum.outworldz.net:8002:Bastion
This is a beautiful Heart Bezel solitaire in Ruby. It is bento rigged so it increased the LOD it is a bit heavy. The mesh was reduced 50% prior to rigging too. For those that demand bento, and to the ones who scream at me for being heavy, I have to say, sorry but had to do it!! You can find it in the Bento rings section in the Foyer.

This has been decimated in Blender, you might take it to blender and make it even lower count. Too much it loses details.

My Reviews

The Art Factory

Thought provoking gallery. Viewing the art pieces gives you pause and a chance to reflect on thoughts we rarely explore. I love this gallery. I love how it is presented, very nice work.

Story

This installation is a magical exploration of thought and creativity. It feels so familiar as if I have dreamt this dream. At home I am surrounded by books which I will never part with, I have ideas to make objects for my home using books, like this too. I love this Story region. Nice work!

Wolf Territories

Impeccable details here, amazing textures. When I visited the Grand Ballroom I felt as though I was visiting a RL Ballroom. I have never seen textures applied this beautifully wow, not only the selection of the textures, but also they are expertly applied, well done!!

Belle Terre

mmm the sweet scent of cherry blossoms will greet your arrival as you wind your way along the winding path to the maze. This is a pretty region with a secluded tree house for that romantic dance. Looking forward to the Belle's performances this winter, I see too there is a masquerade ball on the calendar in December, nice work Freda!

Tessin

The details of this region is just impeccable. From the pathways, to the worn wagon wheel tracks through the meadows. I love the details here, this reminds me of the early days of SL when you venture out and discover a place where you lose track of time, a place that you find yourself wanting to return again, which I definitely will. You will love her ships :)
