One of the most incredible builders I’ve ever seen on Second Life is Arcadia Asylum. She has produced astonishingly realistic looking “slum” items that have to be seen to be believed. I was in awe the first time I saw her Slum Hotel, and I’m particularly fond of her subway station and bus.
What’s even more amazing is that she gives her work away for free. When you get an item by Arcadia it comes with this note:
All Objects created by me (Arcadia Asylum) are FREE and opensource. you can coppy and modify and pass around to anyone anywhere, the ONLY stipulation is:
*YOU CAN NOT RESELL ANYTHING WITH MY NAME ON IT FOR EVEN ONE LINDEN DOLLAR*
That sed, you may distribute in any way you like, you may use the things anywhere and even blow them to bits if thats your thing. I only don’t want the stuff sold.
As FREEBIES theres no warentees or product suport.
Thats it, KIS (Keep It Simple) :D
Recently I came across an “Arcadia Asylum Recovery Group.” Here’s information from their notecard:
It looks like one of the greatest creators of SL content has left Second Life.
A rumor says she was fed up because she lost her inventory.
This group is dedicated to bring together and make available , as many as possible creations by Arcadia Asylum.
In the spirit of Arcadia we will offer all creatons for free and with all rights.
We will also try to find multiple places to offer these fantastic creatons.
Please join this group if you have Arcadia items and/or want to be notified about group actions.
You can drop Arcadia creations in the pillars at the Sogeti waters. Please check that all rights are open before you do.
Thank you Arcadia where ever you are.
“Arcadia Asylum Recovery”
I highly recommend Arcadia’s work, especially if you like the urban or slum look. There is humor mixed in with most everything Arcadia has made, from the posters on the wall to the advertisements. It’s great there is a group trying to recover her work, which is truly so artistic and creative its certainly worthy of being showcased.
Have a look!
