Welcome to our first blog

Slade and I finally decided to create a blog for Liquid Heat. I'm going to shoot for posting on here at least once a week, and I'm hoping to get Slade to post when he can too.

We decided to start a blog to let you guys know what's going on with Liquid Heat on a more regular basis. We've been getting so busy that it's sometimes hard to let everyone know what's new or what's been happening.

To bring everyone up to speed, we've almost completed the redesign of the sim. Yes, winter is over and we went with a completely different feel for this sim. We've basically broken it up into 4 different sections that, the pirate village also known as Smuggler's Cove, that funny blue place also known as MoonVale, the enormous castle covering 1/4 of the sim Felguarde Keep and the castle ruins across the bridge. We know how much everyone loved the Halloween build and there were a lot of things to do there, we don't feel we had enough variety of things to do on the winter build, so we made an extra effort to put things into this build that were fun to do and will appeal to all different tastes. When you enter the sim we've put notecards out detailing all of the different things to do, my personal suggestion is if you don't have time for everything take at least the balloon ride and try the bungee jumping, don't worry you won't get hurt...well at least no one has yet.

Some other news is that we have been included in the list of creation artists to have a kiosk on the soon to be opening The Best of SL Boulevard. It opens in two weeks and we are all getting our areas in order on that sim. I have to tell you the build there is beautiful, I don't think you'll find a shopping experience in Second Life that even comes close.

We are really excited that we have been picked to be one of the theme design teams for the Relay for Life sims this year. Slade and I will be building one of the theme sims that the relayers will be walking through. We can't tell you our plans for the sim design yet, but I don't think you will be disappointed. This is such a great cause and everyone works together so well for a common goal of raising awareness and money to fight cancer. Cancer has affected my family significantly and I am so happy to be able to be a part of helping to raise funds as well as the good will that goes with it for all the cancer survivors and their caregivers.
