Water, again

Water, again

Visit Las Arenas Rosadas (229, 204, 48)

Water.  It’s fascinating stuff.  Particularly in sl.

Waterside land always commands a premium price in sl, yet sl water is no more real than sl land.  So what makes water – at least, the apparent sight of water – so much more appealing that the sight of land?  Why is so much simulator effort, and graphics rendering effort, expended on making water look and feel ‘right’?

I can only assume it’s something quite basic, something intrinsically human.  If you have an idea, I’d love to hear it.

  1. Water is relaxing? Like fireplaces (also so common)… the slow random motion, pink noise … something about it is soothing to the soul? (or at least puts you to sleep? 🙂
