I just found out about a cool new sim in Second Life devoted to the short-lived but much beloved sci-fi series "Firefly" and the subsequent movie "Serenity." Called "Washtown," the sim is a place for Firefly fans to role-play as browncoats and Alliance troopers or just hang out with other fanatics (like myself.) (Click here for teleport.)
Recently added was a fairly faithful re-creation of the Serenity spaceship by designer Fenix Eldritch. It’s not done yet, but already you can see how much work has gone into making it feel like a home for Firefly addicts. I just finished a very nostalgic visit and took some pics along the way.
It’s a cool build so far. Inara’s quarters/shuttle is the most obvious unfunished space, but otherwise all the major set pieces are there.
I stepped aboard the SL Serenity and headed straight for the pilot’s seat, which I’m sure just about every fanboy and girl did. The controls seem true to look of the series, none of them functional unfortunately. Lots of nice details in here though.
