the end of the pier

With the end platform now in place, Furillen’s pier is finished.

As I mentioned in another blog entry, this was the result of a fortuitous meeting I had at Furillen with KT Syakumi, a highly skilled builder – she calls herself a ‘craftsperson’ – who stepped up to the challenge.

The result speaks for itself.

Like the airstream that looks out towards it, the pier’s impact is enhanced – for me, at least – by its correspondence to the real thing.

All credit for this must go to KT. She was meticulous in her use of photographs to get the structure of the pier right – as far as Second Life prim constraints will allow – and to reproduce textures from the original.

While many people talk – rightly, I must say – of Furillen’s unique atmosphere in Second Life, this is really the first structure that can be seen only on this sim.

I don’t think it will be the last.
