It has been a long weekend, you may be sitting around bored wondering what to do sick of being slapped by sim crossings or trying to pretend the latest Drama in the sailing community has not happened. (More on this later this week) How about venting your frustrations with some war games? And where better to enjoy a a few war games better than the Gulf? Even if you are not into war games This is an amazing area with plenty to see ant to visit and explore Many aviators in SL forget this place exists or just avoid it but you are missing out. so Lets all out on our combat boots and helmets and visit the gulf.
First and foremost the gulf is a World War 2 combat zone so you better come prepared. Of you don’t have combat gear your first stop should be WW2 Central. Here you can get a free Sub or boat to play with the Free Jeogeot gulf freight system a combat focused freight game that allows you to haul cargo or prevent that cargo from being delivered using a Destroyer or a Submarine. The game features a point system that lets you buy upgrades for your Boat or even select AT products.
The sim is also a mall that sells many cool WW2 products for roleplay. But if combat is not your thing, the build It’s self is rather nice and representative of an industrial port city. You will find large slips for Battleships for Rent as well as two warehouses with WW2 tanks and this a lovely build of a S-80 Submarine on display a new AT Lance combat Battle sub compatible with JGFS (While Boats are not the focus of this blog I think the audience will be interested in a review of this lovely so stay tuned for that)
Over in the Guadalcanal sim you will find one of two WW2 airports featuring a fantastic build and places to explore as well as a few shops that sell WW2 aviation products.
The second WW2 airport has one of the most enjoyable Approach paths in Second life have you ever wanted to fly over an active volcano?
In Hyojong you will find the second WW2 airport. Fletcher field which also features some amazing builds (of you ignore the sky boxes its mainland what can you do am i right?) you can almost feel the dust in your nose form the runway.
More civil minded? The next three airports are for you.
no trek around the gulf is complete without a visit to Wright Brothers, to explore the old fallout shelter which people whipper secretly is home to a Worldwide Evil Criminal Network perhaps you can be the one to find their Headquarters in this massive network of tunnels.
In Sourness, you will find Archerfield Aerodrome home of the ZSK main store. It features two grass runways a nice build and more hidden things to find. Visiting ZSK’s main store you will find two mysterious aircraft shaped shadows upon the ground. Hints at products to come?
Lastly no list of the major airports of the gulf would be complete without Unity. It’s a Airline Sponsored airport, in the middle of a combat zone, Poor brave souls. (all kidding aside the unity folks are nice people.) But it does have some cool go-carts, bowling and other activities worth the visit for the go carts!
