About Myself

One day, I will be a big boy and the collection of my self created scripted assets will have grown beyond the collection I have used to gain knowledge in doing so.

Once the home of the Lorien Elves, the region was depopulated during the Fourth Age until all Elves were gone. The woods and the elven homes have been maintained by the creatures who reside there, hoping l that the Elves eventually will return.

The Citadel, originally posted by Cutelala Artis on OSGrid in 2012, is one of the most beautiful medieval builds on the grid. We enhanced the build with inside/outside mesh updates and interiors on a 1.5 ratio upscaled size for opensim avatar size convenience. Download the original at http://blog...

New release of v3.2 the animesh horse script (can be worn or rezzed as vehicle) and optimized it for PBR viewer compatibility. I did some efforts to make the script more ubOde friendly (yes, with room for improvement) and the horse now has many new features for you to play with.

They are exhausted, but the fox hunt went well (or studying scripting pack behavior)
Arriving with an exhausted pack

Sim crossing over 4 var regions with followers works extremely well IF you cross calmly and keep your objects close.

Experimenting with hearding of animals with different heights on EAS region

They all stay nicely on the ground (or prim) auto-adjusting their height to the leader's.

Upgraded the horse rezzer script from the popular NPC horse rezzer to an "All-in-One" Animesh Horse Rezzer, with a load of features in the animesh horse.
Tip: to avoid the horse from dying, remove the "animesh horse rez" script, and have it roam around an area of your region or parcel, follow other horses, and other options.

One of the major benefits of the animesh horse is that it can cross regions (if allowed by the sim owner).
When you own the animesh horse, you can wear it an teleport around.

ThundergodThor: Positively awesome, I love it! The horses are so realistic looking. Awesome job Roland! 2 years ago
Autumn rain drain at Neiferleaf
In full motion it looks like this:

By the way, the animesh cloak for males & females is available for grabs (manual inside) it can co-exist with any AO and flutters in the wind while walking, running and while riding a wearable horse.

Don't look UP (!)

Very much apprciated having 25 HG Safari group members visiting WesLorien at ViBel Grid & joining them to visit Hobbiton @ Fred Bekhusen's Outworldz grid.
We had a great time, made a few new connections with the Seconde Vie French community and enthousiatically talked about animesh scripting for wandering animals with the help and a gentle push in the back of a friend who provided the core functionality here

Autumn has struck at Neiferleaf

KhennaReenberg: Being new to the grid, I recently had the pleasure of visiting - what a breath-taking place...I will visit again to experience Autumn. ♥ Thank you so much for sharing your labor of love and vision. 2 years ago

📝 SecondLife introduces and opensources Puppetry , a webcam-to-avatar animation feature

Puppetry accepts target transforms for avatar skeleton bones and uses inverse kinematics (IK) to place the connecting bones in order for the specified bones to reach their targets

The benefits of a wearable animesh horse:
- can cross sims
- can teleport
- can rez a follower co-rider poseball
and has some additional features

Have a long stroll at Neiferleaf and its connected 4 3x3 Var regions.

Every now and then you need to dispose of some sh#
I have a fabulously beautiful grungy toilet, scripted with SFPoser (details here: , available to anyone that feels the urge. Take it home with you if you like. ^^
And don't worry, I won't take your public information to expose it to the public. Really. Now push hard and purge.
Hi there Kleenex (Waves). I'm so sorry that Google maps can only zoom in so far. But I can see you wheepin', so I'm giving you a wave. Are you sure you want to continue on that road?

That's Weslorien on a bright day

Looking familiar?

I think I heard something...

A bright autumn day at Neiferleaf Castle

Neiferleaf as seen from it's souden neighbour region. All neighbouring regions got a landscaping update. Much, much better then sim surrounds. HOP

A more Tolkien-esque upgrade to WesLorien: new waterfalls and some housing mods. Enjoy. (Edit on 2021Oct31: swapped the picture with a better composed one)

I worked out a solution for initial sitting bug in the NPC Horse (script by Shin Ingen) where the avatar sinks through the horse when wearing an AO.
In the NPC horse script by Shin Ingen in under run_time_permissions(integer perm) FIND
and REPLACE with
list anims = llGetAnimationList(llGetPermissionsKey());
integer len = llGetListLength(anims);
integer i;
for (i = 0; i < len; ++i) llStopAnimation(llList2Key(anims, i));
//llOwnerSay("Permissions Accepted");
If you don't like coding, just hop over to Neiferleaf and fetch the boxed new horse rezzer at the landingpoint.

The river was upgraded today, with a nice realistic looking flowing water.

My Reviews

Avedon Park

Lovely landing experience, great hardscaping and eye stroking blending of contemporary objects with mystical landscaping. I had a long stroll and a picknick until the sun went down, only to discover that evening shopping in a beautifully balanced lighted village is an experience that I did not anticipate to. Simply gorgeous.

Tubarao Azul VI

This is exemplary landscaping. Open & airy, yet full of marvelous details.

Ponto Costa Azul

Loving it. It's a marvel


I can only second what Lillysparks & DeeZee are telling you. The user experience is simply "one of a kind". Not only is this vast land styled in a very contemporary "snapshot of activity" way, it is full of finely tuned details. Definitely worth your time.


Definitely the most fascinating SciFi build on the fastest rezzing grid on the HyperGrid. Can't wait to witness how this will evolve in the (near) future.


Beautiful art in the way I love & admire

Lioness Den

I quite like the atmosphere of the region and its wide range of wildlife (for those who care to look). From donkeys over penguins to "the big 5" AND some animal groups are scripted animesh wanderers roaming freely around the region (hint hint). The rhino's, the elephants and the hippo's are so well themed, you can't but feel the immersion.


Thank you for the guided tour at Free Magic and at the Elven Island. There are many many great wizardry items to grab and to learn from. Highly recommended.

Vintage Garden

This is visual artistry that sticks to the mind :) One of your very best, Avia.

Wonderland Madness

Sublime, with lots of attention to detail and exquisitely themed NPC's. Loving it (!)
