Return to main : Second Life Road Network Directory
Roads on Satori (The "Japanese continent") comprise : Routes 8/8A/8B/8C and an offshoot, the Old Wagon Road : Konichiwa!
Because of it's shape many call this the "Japanese" continent. With that in mind the roads and public buildings along these roads have an eastern stylistic flair. Originally the roads were supposed to connect, but due to mistakes when the land was divided as the regions were brought online many of the routes end in abrupt dead ends. A system of false tunnels and billboards at dead ends will offer teleports when touched to allow travelers to easily keep exploring the road network without having to backtrack or search the map for where the road picks up again.

Route 8 Bagheera shelter, Bahheera
The Bagheera shelter at the end of the road is the perfect starting point for any exploration of the land. On the back wall is a large map of the continent showing the location of all the main routes; 8, 8A, 8B, 8C, and the Old Wagon Road. Smaller versions of this building exist all along the routes at various points to give explores an idea where they are on the overall map and to provide "rest stops".
Route 8 RT8-8C Junction, Davros
Turnoff point for RT8C (still under construction)
Route 8 Bridge Out!, Davros/Fenric
Look out! The bridge is out! Can you drive fast enough to make the jump? Go ahead and try! ;D
Route 8 RT8-8A Junction, Richfield
Southern junction with RT8A. Small rest stop with a lighted lamppost, sitting area and map kiosk.
Route 8 RT8-8B Junction, Cipactli
Connection with RT8B, just south of the Furki Rest Stop on RT8B/8A.
Route 8 Toroge Kiosk, Toroge
Westernmost point on the roadmap. Tight curve with an example of one of the small map kiosks.
Route 8 Bletschorn Tunnel, Bletschorn
False tunnel used to bypass Damastock. Touching the lanterns at the tunnel entrance will take you to the other side in Finsteraarhorn.
Route 8 Finsteraarhorn Tunnel, Finsteraarhorn
Mate to the Bletschorn Tunnel. Touching the lanterns at the tunnel entrance will take you to the other side in Bletschorn.
Route 8 RT8-8A Junction, Nadelhorn
Northern end of RT8A.
Route 8 Soulgiver Tunnel, Soulgiver
End of RT8. Touching the lanterns at the tunnel entrance will take you to RT8C in Ogilvie.
Route 8A Furki Rest Area, Furki
Rest area along the junction between RT8A and RT8B in Furki. Plenty of places to sit, relax, and discuss which direction you want to go next! Even has a working traffic light in the intersection.
Route 8A Aragonese Tunnel, Aragonese
Yep, another false tunnel. This one connects the broken halves of RT8A between Aragonese and Ellingson.
Route 8A Falling Rocks, Horns of Hattin
One of the most difficult tasks in constructing roads is figuring out what to do in "four corner" areas where the road runs through a spot where 4 regions meet. The region crossings can be very tricky in these spots. It's best to go slow and take the crossings one at a time. In this spot, the fallen rocks divert travelers in a way to guide them through the crossing along the best and least likely to end up crashing the client fashion.
Route 8A Tawa Rest Stop, Tawa
Small rest area with a couple of benches, a map kiosk and some trees.
Route 8B Dead end, Camazotz
RT8B dead ends in Camazotz with a billboard sign that acts as a teleport link to the Old Wagon Road in Rethymno
Old Wagon Road, Rethymno
The Old Wagon Road is a two-track unimproved roadway that only spans two regions. At either end are Billboard teleporters to take you other parts of RT8.
Route 8A dead end, Ellingson
The southern half of Route 8A ends in Eliingson where you will find two teleport billboards offering to let you continue on Route 8A in Aragonese or you can choose to go to Sababurg and take the Old Wagon Road.
Route 8C Ogilvie, Valeyard/Davros
False tunnel that allows travelers to connect to RT8 in Soulgiver (if they touch the lantern on the left) or the Old Wagon Road in Sababurg (if they touch the lantern on the right).
Route 8C Valeyard/Davros Waterway, Valeyard/Davros
Rez a boat and you can travel between Valeyard and Davros just before RT8C meets RT8.
The following numbers are distances measured in km, with an error of 5%.
