Erstwhile (Marcus Inkpen/Sharni Azalee)
A close look here sees walkways, docks… a skyport in the bowl of an enormous crater, wrought from a technology so advanced that it will forever seem ancient. From here, merchants in scarabesque vessels ply their trade between the worlds, between realities. But step back; let the sunlight gleam from the opalescent hulls and they become as petals, the brass and iron of the walkways become stems, to the structures that hold it all together: a magnificent flower, shining in the crater’s embrace. In the middle of it all, a bright light streaks upwards, the connection to those other realities by which these ships journey to places as yet undreamed. This is the gateway of now. The launching off point for those brave souls that are truly ready for the future.

I love this sim. The pallet of colors that was used is just so very appealing to me. The steampunk aspects also helped but really, its the colors used! Add to it the slight glow on some things and its overall aestetics and its a joy to walk about. The lounge in the "airship port" looks comfy and calming and a good place to people watch travelers coming from distant lands.
And there are little things to look for, butterflies, funny signs, plants, crystals. Just...the sim made me happy.
