The snow has melted almost everywhere in Novale and the 256 shades of green are taking over the area. There are still some snow patches in the Maple Grove but this is what we need to make sure that we will have a good Maple Sugar Season.
Everywhere in Novale you can feel the renaissance of Spring. The nature is coming back to life, after a long and cold winter. In addition to feeling the spring getting installed in the traditional places of Novale, you are also invited to explore Novale’s key spring attractions: the Valley of Ancient Easters, the Maple groove with its sugar shack and the Boreal trail.
Do not miss the dandelion rides located near Novale’s welcome camp or the butterfly ride departing from the Valley of Ancient Easters. Spring is all about shades of green, flowers, birds, chocolate, and maple sugar! There are as well a few boat tours at the Marina and four stations with horse rezzers.
To all of you, we, Dabici Straulino and Kelso Uxlay, wish you a beautiful spring, le plus beau des printemps, frohe Früling and Buona Primavera!

En route to the Sugar Shack
Enjoy the spirit of Spring

When you take the dandelion seed ride to the Valley of Ancient Easters
You will arrive near the lake just beside this leave thrown by a butterfly
Remember the place and once you have completed your visit of the Valley
Sit on the leave for the next ride : destination maple grove and sugar shack

The nicest way to reach the Valley of Ancient Easters is taking
the dandelion riding seed at the dock, near landing camp

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...
Debra Ann Congi Beautiful sim. Lots going on here and friendly. I enjoyed my visit.
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 !

Region Comments

This is a lovely region! Take the time to go explore--you won't regret it!
Thanks for the nice comment on Novale (spring state)
Thx Contessa. Just in case you do not know already, Novale is changing 4 times a year to match our seasons in Easter Canada. Currently it is spring. Summer will begin circa 3rd week of June. Do not miss the Underwater tour.
C'est toujours un immense plaisir de déambuler sur Novale. Avec sa robe d'hiver, la région est magnifique. Bravo à tous les deux.
Ravi du commentaire et enchanté que cela te plaise
Truly magical, so much to see and explore and loved skating with all the penguins :)
Thanks Sunshine, did you try the sleigh rides with Santas, the country ski tour etc ? The country ski tours is approx. 7 km long and bring you to places that are not easy to discover. All info is at the red kiosk near landing.
No not yet but will be back to explore more :)
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.
Really nice comment! Say hello to your sister for me.
What a great way to tell a story about Novale notwithstanding the well informed advise to hypergrider so to get the most of their visit. Vielen Dank !
Hello Shawn Novale is open and ready for radio check :). Have fun !
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. :)
@Dabici132 Check yer beacon please, and when yer done with that, unban me will ya? so I can keep nagging you to update all yer radios. I know I'm not banned so please dont type the sad "Sorry". Please please PLEASE dont type that. Oh, and know that I jumped to Novale tonight to make sure your region was up before I typed a mess of characters about it in public.
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.
thank you!
