== Route 6 : The High Mountain Road  ==
+
 
+
 
+
Much civil engineering work has been carried out on this lonely and at times vertiginous road linking the SLRR with the Great Wall of Second Life, along a twisting, climbing route navigating the footslopes of the highest peak on the mainland, Mount Campion.
+
 
+
Hardy travellers not afraid of mud, giddy heights or splinters in the foot, may now travel this way. The eastern hitherto impassable cliff face sections have now been bridged and made free to explore, while the western hillsides nearer to the broken wall still require an all terrain vehicle ideally of the four legged variety .. neigh !
+
 
+

+
 
+
[[Image:01-greatwall.jpg|right|100px]]
+
=== Route 6 : The Great Wall ===
+
 
+
Access from the heights of the wall has been made down to ground level by a trestle ramp of heavy timber construction, strong enough for most vehicles, horses, camels, elephants … whatever one's choice of transportation.
+
 
+
 
+
 
+
[[Image:02-athetis-rez.jpg|right|100px]]
+
=== Route 6 : Athetis Rez Zone ===
+
 
+
At the foot of the ramp, the route presents itself, inviting the intrepid traveller to commence the journey, the grass covered remains of the ancient stone of the wall footings winding away like a ribbon towards distant peaks. A rez zone is here for convenience.

=== Route 6 : Western Trail End ===

[[Image:04-deltote.jpg|right|100px]]

=== Route 6 : Deltote ===

+
 
+
 
+
[[Image:05-deltote.jpg|right|100px]]
+
=== Route 6 : Begin the Ascent ===
+

Eventually, the path begins to climb towards higher ground, hugging a narrow stoney ledge into the foothills as the views below begin to open out.

+
 
+
 
+
[[Image:06-parva-rez.jpg|right|100px]]
+
=== Route 6 : Parva Rez Zone ===

The mountain slopes become less firm, narrow gullies necessitating bridges for easy travel where ground has given way in the past. There is a small rez zone just west of this small crossing.

+
=== Route 6 : Lota Rez Zone ===
+

Rising upwards, the ledge becomes flatter for a while, at some point here the route has been paved with stone and edged with pillars. A passing place in Lota offers the traveller an opportunity to sit and admire the view from this higher ground, also a rez zone is here

As seen in this database, Heterocera has the largest road network on the grid, 80.66 km. This is comparable with [[Corsica]], [[Gaeta 5]], [[Nautilus]] and [[Satori]] together. If we add the total railway length, we get over 100 km. From all continents, Heterocera is the most populated continent. Many studies show that, like in real world, there is a strict corelation between population density and infrastructure. Not many people will feel confortable to settle on a hill without a road, a railway or a waterway nearby.

Return to main : Second Life Road Network Directory


An extensive network of roads exists on Heterocera, and this page deals so far primarily with the new construction within the northern section of the continent.

The maps present here are initial construction maps and may differ slightly from what is on the ground until such time as fresh mapping can be obtained.

The following descriptions break this network down into a number of distinct routes.

As seen in this database, Heterocera has the largest road network on the grid, 80.66 km. This is comparable with Corsica, Gaeta 5, Nautilus and Satori together. If we add the total railway length, we get over 100 km. From all continents, Heterocera is the most populated continent. Many studies show that, like in real world, there is a strict corelation between population density and infrastructure. Not many people will feel confortable to settle on a hill without a road, a railway or a waterway nearby.
