We met up with Shelenn on Zen, one of the regions of Opensimfest grid that is closest to being finished - only about two weeks are left, so everyone is in the final rush before testing and checking leading up to the Opening, on July 8th.
Thirza Ember: First question, Shelenn - Opensimfest - what made you take it on?
Thirza Ember: it's a huge undertaking
Shelenn Ayres: it is! We are here on the Zen region, a place to be calm and enjoy some meditation. To the right is tai chi, forward is yoga, to the right of that is a meditation zen garden with inspiration stones
Shelenn Ayres: maybe next year we can have more multilingual support
Shelenn Ayres: yes, to give privacy while meditating
Shelenn Ayres: so this is still a work in progress, like most of the grid. I added Louvre inspired glass pyramids to honor Aine [Caoimhe] and her dancer statues. In the middle of those is where the events each weekend will be. Anyone wants a copy of the dancers I have them, by the way, she shared them freely.
Nebby Newman: I like how these parcels flow to each other, even though they are individual
Shelenn Ayres: right, its the layout that matters - designed for low lag too.
Thirza Ember: Mal is going to have a studio and hopes to broadcast Inworld Review from here during the festival
Shelenn Ayres: there are sponsors in Welcome and HG Welcome regions and Zen and VIP regions and there are four full region sponsors as well. Free parcels are located in Oxygen, Fluorine, Chlorine, Quantion, and Sulfur regions and possibly a new one called Unobtanium. It's about the chemistry of community. We have many free parcels available so tell your friends! get your own! we have 8 days to build, and 17 days to celebrate in July - around 90 or more performers every 3 day weekend for three weekends
Banker Ibor: for script using for lag mainly and copybotted stuff lmao
Nebby Newman oh, ok <whew>
Shelenn Ayres: far more than that haha - planning started in February, we set policies, did r&d then opened for builds in June

check out the video by Jess to really get the full force of it... but what am I saying - GO THERE- you will not regret it. we only had time for two rides, the Green mile and this devilish swinging thing that felt so real it was shocking. The whole place is a dream, both from a prim economy and an experiential point of view, and if you're in the market for a wow factor on your grid, this is really on the money.
