If you need help with the controls of the HUD please have a look at this how to.

Furthermore, we added useful information about the Windlight viewer and how to use your camera. These are not required to enjoy the HUD but they might increase your Second Life experience if you have a look at them.

In case you don't have a HUD yet and are searching for one: You can get it for free at SL Exchange, OnRez or In-World at Stadtrand (81, 17, 23).

Category: Exploring Region flag: Mature
Greenies Space Station

Greenies Home is an arty explorers sim. Your surrounding is huge so you feel like you're shrinked down to the size of a mouse. It is suggested to view this sim with a draw distance no less then 300 meters, so please have a look here if you don't know how to manage that. When you arrive at Greenies, follow the little arrows out of the mouses cave, walk through the dolls house and enter the livingroom of Greenies. From here, look at everything, fly, rez a car and drive along... There are many detailed and hidden scenes so jump in every cupboard, look beneath the fridge, walk behind framed pictures...
Also, make sure to click on the teleporters as some of them will lead you to a space station up in the sky where the greenies prepare for world domination.

The Black Swan
Category: Exploring Region flag: Mature
The tied up angel

The Black Swan is a creepy but fascinating arty explorers sim. When you enter the Black Swan, try to increase your Draw Distance above 250m to enjoy the beautiful surrounding. If you don't know how to do that please have a look over here. You will find a path in front of you which you might follow. Be careful because of some traps (this is just fun - you can't really die in Second Life). Try to walk the path without flying also it's really tricky to not fall off. Have a look around and enjoy the beautiful statues. One of them even comes to life. You will have to jump over lava, avoid spears shooting up the path, walk over a crumbly bridge... Once you arrived at the tied up angel, you will find a bright beam appearing behind him. Walk right into the beam and don't try to move when you're inside it. It will elevate you to some kind of twillight zone. Enjoy your stay.

The Future
Category: Exploring Region flag: Mature
Transport System

In the moment of writing, The Future is still under construction but already very worth watching! It has a unique and interesting transporting system to get you to the exciting places. As seen in the picture, there are many boxes with hovering text, displaying the desired location to move to. Click at the box that shows the places where you would like to go and walk into the beam. If you got move lock please disable it (if you don't know what a move lock is, you'll most probably not have it and won't have to worry about this advice). Also, don't try to move or fly while you're transported. You will be pushed through channels and fall to the location. In the moment of writing, this transporting system is still a little buggy. So if the transport fails, just teleport back to the landing platform and try again.
Definatly worth watching are the sculpty garden, where wonderfull art is displayed, and the crooked house. When you enter the crooked house, there will be a small crook on the table next to you. Click that one so the house focuses on our avatar. when you now leave the room through any of the six doors, the house will shift so you'll be always surrounded by other rooms. It is hard to describe actually but you will find out ;-) Make sure to use your camera to look at the house from outside and how it puzzles itself.
Try to fly around on the sim as well while there are lots of interesting and strange looking things around.

Tour Vehicle

The experimental island has some very interesting features. The whole island is a growing environment - not just by putting things in there, but growing by itself as nature does. Sound experiments like the elven drums are lovely ideas and provide fun especially in groups. Walk up the path over the bridges to have a great view over the island nature and enter the library where books can be read. Find the avatar oracle and get some sights about your future and don’t forget to feed the birds - it is worth to buy food for L$1, put it on the ground and wait until birds eat it away. At the TP arrival point a tour vehicle may be boarded and this will give you a first overview of the many details of Svarga.
