Like Magnificat this sim is a horse shoe shape going around water, however instead of ships sailing into the sunset, Lotus features a giant glowing lotus blossom being entwined by an oriental red dragon. A simply breath taking sight.
Docks with boats, little nooks with fountains, statues, and duckies are scattered about the sim. It makes for a pleasantly calming experience.
Also on the sim is the Steelhead Associated Adventures club run by the Quest for the golden Prim. Which is a comic shot mostly in Steelhead's sims. My teahouse made an a background appearance once! I took a few photos of it and they can be seen starting here
I greatly enjoyed this sim and you can see all my photos of it at this link here
