*** WELCOME TO NOVALE __ 2022 SUMMER SEASON ***

Novale is a seasonal region showcasing Eastern Canada's seasons. We change the OAR 4 times per year, around solstices and equinoxes. The four seasons are not shown simultaneously. Novale is a 4x4 region. We keep building new things every year.

Summer 2022 is now open. It is a little paradise for wanderers and photographers who like to explore a diversity of habitats, sites, landscapes, and stories. Do not cam from landing, take the time read the notecard to learn about the many ways to explore the regions, including boat rides, Eagle ride, horse riding and the buoys network. The key attractions during summer season include the possibility to practice nautical activities such as surfing, windsurfing, kayaking, sailing, and enjoying many boat rides, visiting many cozy chalets and hangout places and discovering the beautiful Underwater ride.

We hope to see you soon!
A beautiful summer to everyone!

Dabici and Kelso.

Learning windsurf is all about trying and practicing
Four Windsurf boards from Ocean Engeneering are set for visitors at Novale
Come and try; the more you practice, the better you will get

According to our Observatory experts, many visitors crash when trying to teleport to Novale. This would seem to be related to a known bug, a conflict between Firestorm viewer and Vivox.
Good news, there is a way to go around it : prior to teleport to Novale, go to your preferences/Sound&Media/Voice and diseable Voice.
Try it and let us know if it works for you !

Jamie Wright: I'm a die hard for Singularity and I don't think I've ever crashed on Novale. Love all that you offer in all seasons! 3 months ago

Aaack Ah yes, this place. I just visited it and I don't think I managed to explore a 25% of it. This is a place you need to see! At my arrival I started to walk in a random direction and bumped against a bell, upon click it razzed a tour boat. Since I'm very lazy I thought "why not?" and suddenly i was...
Thirza Ember Dabici and Kelso are extraordinary builders. Smooth scripts and a stunning landscape make this one of the most fun places to go in the hypergrid. Frequently updated to reflect the changing seasons, it also has lots of beautiful freebies and photo opportunities. Thanks for having the Safari visit !
Allie Dawson I don't know HOW I missed such a wonderful region for so LONG!! Even in my way-too-short visit ( I was focused mainly on the SURFING!! ) it is clear that this is a lovingly built region with much attention paid to details. Many thanks to the owner, Dabici, for taking the time to show me around....

I strongly advise visitors to dress appropriately. Seasons change, summer is warm, the other seasons aren't, and winter is pretty cold here. This is Québec after all.

Also, if you want to hike on the trail, you'd better wear sturdy and comfortable shoes or boots. This isn't exactly an asphalt road. So, ladies, leave your high heels at home.

Generally, bring a bag for what the mill and the farm have to offer. In summer, pack some swimwear there's a little beach along the trail, and I recommend you to hike clockwise so that you pass the harder parts of the trail before you can cool down and relax at the beach.

Oh, and Captain Kelso's tour is actually under water, so you will need swimwear or a wetsuit and some diving/SCUBA gear. You can get that at the entrance of the tour, but you may want to bring your own.

You just got me singing "I'm in the army now. tah da da da da tee da" (radio check was my forte in the army along with driving a tank). I'll check it when there's not such a crowd there. I looked earlier on the Novale OSW page and saw 3 avs there before your invite, I sure hope those aren't NPC's and Satyr boots the region. :)

Hi Shawn, I will update the beacon as soon as Novale Winter is ready to receive visitors. We are in the process of upgrading to 9.2 and in enlarging the SIM. As soon as it is open, I will let you know :)

Ohhhh, well that's a lil bit understandable Dab's. it would be more understandable If I got YOUR explanation of why a visitor is banned instead of the banning notice that I saw. Just to be clear, the grid is still up, just not set for hypergrid right? Or is just that the region is set to "Allow only residents and groups listed below" and not the usual "Anyone can visit"? I'm just wanting to know what causes that unwanted banning notice that appears to everyone when it is not an intentional dramatic notice. I look forward to seeing and hearing Christmas Season in Novale. :)

Hello Shawn, we are currently dealing with two grids, the old one and the new one. The new is not yet visible in hypergrid. The old is detectable but closed with access only to the group of two members (Kelso and I). The damm banned message is generated by the system, automatically when a grid is closed to all visitors except us both. I cannot edit that message and I hate it very much so. Let's hope that this will change with the upgrade. We are working intensively and needs to close access to the two grids to uptimize the resources used. And, be reassured, you are not banned from Novale.

Do you have to be a member of the region. Could not get a copy of the many cool items you have. Especially the skeleton with bass. Have a collection of many skeletons.

Hello SheaButter, Novale is a private region open to visitors, we have no residents beyond the owner team. Novale is not a shopping region however you do not need to be a member of the region to take a copy of the items that are copyable. Anyone can take a copy of the DoubleBass skeleton player in the Castle's Ballroom. If you are taking about the musicians that are on the stage of the dancing palace, these are not objects but NPCs. I am not offering those. You can create them yourself. To do them I use a skeleton avatar that I have bought on Kitely market, a duster coat that can be found in must shopping mall and halloween masks that I found a while ago at foundation grid.

I am not sharing all my creations but you can find some of them at the little curiosity shoppe. With respect to the many other objects that are in Novale and created by others, I tend to leave them with full permission if this is how they were offered originally.

This is the greatest, funny and playful winter sim i ever visit. And i travel a lot. My compliment, evry corner, every scene is made with love and a eye for details. All tells a little story. I can just say: visit it people - if not you will miss a lot of fun.

Thanks AeaonFelisimo for you appreciation for Novale in winter state. Novale is seasonal, its OAR is changed 4 times a year according to our real season. Winter will remain online until early March and be replaced by Spring State, accessible from Spring Equinoxe Day. .
