Goony Adventure: Bronyville & Liberty Cove [UPDATED]

So for June the Goonies Gathered at the Clubhouse before teleporting to a place thats got a bit of buzz recently for its crazyness. Some of the greatest moments in SL are born from the memes of the net and Bronyville is one of them.

I've seen a few of my friends pick up a My little Pony cell shaded cartoon avatar, and i have seen the fanmade trailers based around the new My Little Pony Cartoons. What you get when you take that meme into SL is absolute crazyness and i love that.



We arrived to a rainbow filled sim with nice lil houses, but what was great was the amount of people there with their personalised Ponies of different kinds.

The Goonies arrived to find a whole mass of Ponies happy slapping each other, or maybe they were worshiping the giant shoe , i was'nt quite sure.



Anyway Bronyville was quite fun but soon it was time to go to our second destination of the evening....

[UPDATE] Nat corrected me i thought it was Pronyville, but its Bronyville



Sextan Shepherd has become a recognised name throughout Second Life, for his work on the now gone Nemo regions. I admire his attention to detail with texturing, if he published a book about texturing i would buy it! HINT.

The Goonies arrived at his latest work, the homestead region known as 'Liberty Cove'. (Perhaps a much cheaper a fair than the huge Nemo regions.)


It starts off as a wonderful winding street with shops showcasing Sextans work for sale.




Then walking across the rocky island the Goonies came across a strange machine machine in an old temple like building. All beautifully textured as expected from Sextan.


Crossing a bridge we also discovered other delights. My new Computer helped me take full advantage of how great the Sim looked enhancing what was already a wonderful steampunk atmosphere.






Some of this place is still under construction so i will probably return in future to see whats been added. Definitely check it out!

Anyway Much fun was had by all who ventured with us.

You got the name wrong! It's called Bronyville! The 4chan fans are mostly guys so they call themselves Bronies - a combination of 'bro' and 'ponies'.

And it looks really weird without the sky permanently set to midday like it should be :D
