One hell of a ship

Late last month, Australian jazz artist Paisley Beebe headlined the launch of Second Life’s largest ship, the Galaxy.

The size of the Galaxy is best demonstrated by the map view:


A three-sim boat is obviously a first and there’s significant attention to detail although that has its impact on the lag experienced – I’ve visited the Galaxy half a dozen times and the lag in busy times makes the Galaxy near unusable. Even in quiet times it’s a very obvious issue.


That said, if you’re nautically inclined the Galaxy is well worth a walk through. The bulk of the interior is social areas including the fairly impressive ballroom. There’s also a load of vendors, the majority with tasteful offerings that match the ambience of the Galaxy.
