Its New Years Eve, and temps are in the 30s tonight, and the local gigantic New Years concert has Ben Folds playing (yuck!). So I’m staying in, and party hopping in the metaverse wherever I can find a good party. I’m cruising multiple virtual worlds, and this may require some update breaks throughout the night. Also I’m going in blind, not knowing in advance where the good parties are, but here goes.
First up, IMVU. Haven’t been in here since the last time I blogged about it. First thing I notice is that I am an IMVU Millionaire somehow. Last time I was in game I only had half a million. It pays to not play apparently. OK, go to the chat room search, type “New Years” and see what comes up. Ahh, a New Years Ball…
Decent crowd like the atmo. Wow its a formal, I seem a little under dressed. Lets try another scene…
Trying an Adult Pass event. Looks like a boat with fireworks. Some girl from Britain is here, its 3AM in the UK right now. What a way to party. Just turned New Years day in Bermuda, off to another virtual world.
And here we are in Inworldz. The problem with Open Sims is that I have no wardrobe here. They are playing 80s music, time to duck out.
Decent Crowd at the OSGrid greeting center, so how does one go about finding New Years Eve parties in OSGrid anyways? Another problem with Open Sims, no event search capabilities. So where to now? I haven’t been to Blue Mars in a while. Twinity either. I’ll probably need new clients for both, so I’m downloading both at the same time, lets see who wins… Twinity by a long shot.
Yay! New Years in Virtual New York City! 6 people, and this is the most crowded place in Twinity right now. OK Atlantic Time Zone has just had their New Year. Next up is Eastern Time Zone. Lets see, has Blue Mars finished downloading yet?
Wow even fewer people for the big New Years bash than Twinity. OK this place is dead tonight, I need some place that is alive and kicking for my Eastern Timezone celebration.
Hmm, time for an old standby…
There is always a big holiday gathering in Guild Wars!
OK ran out of different worlds, time to check out Second Life. I found some scheduled New Years events on the SLU board, so I’m going to check them out blind without looking at a map to see if they might be lame.
First Stop New Toulouse. Nice crowd. Very formal. Good opportunity to dress in my hot red dress.
I checked out a few others, but the New Toulouse party seemed to be the best, so I stayed there for the Central and Mountain Time zone parties.
But for the Pacific I had to check out a nude beach party at SDI
Happy New Years Everybody!!!
