Our Hot Air Balloon Ride got revamped. We use the beautiful Halloween Hot Air Balloon created by « artoonick » (Free3D) and imported in Opensim by Marianna Monentes. It is now in function at Novale.
This is not a tour but a ride. The original script was created by Gimisa Cerise. It works like a real balloon : only control is on the burner to heat or not the air in the balloon t0 go up or down. Ride direction is determined by the Region wind.
I had a long ride today and landed finally at the farm.

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.
Dabici132 3 months ago

(Winter-)Novale has best ski-tour(s) I've seen in Opensim yet! Tour path starts automatically after sitting on one of the ski tour prims - so you can take red discent without any risk. Cable railways bring you back to the mountain's top again - you need not walk uphill. Well done!!!
Dabici132 1 years ago
Exact, no need to walk uphill again. Best however is to get the equipment at the downhill ski station near the main chairlift.
