    Default Halimeda's Oasis

    I've been tinkering away at my first dimension for a while now, and I feel ready to show it to other people. I've been using the Faen's Retreat as my base. I quite like the size and layout of it, but I wanted it to be more lush and colourful. So in the end it's turned into a myriad of trees, lanterns and flowers. I've also added a few places to sit down and relax, wether you prefer to lie down in front of the fire with a book, sit outside with your love under the blooming cherry blossom tree, or just have a nice drink with friends by the pond. I'm thinking of just calling it Lantern's Retreat instead, but we'll see. I'm going to keep on expanding the place when I can afford to and have time, but as it is now I'm quite pleased with it.

    I'd be grateful for anyone that would take their time to take a peek at it, really. You can find it at Argent, EU shard.

    Your pictures look outstanding, what a wonderful transformation of Faen's Retreat. I've used Faen's four times (with two more being a WIP) and I love the dimension for its versatility.

    Fantastic job.

    Sooooo pretty! Wish I could visit it from the NA! If you copy your toon over to the PTS, does your dimension get copied too? That could be the only way I could visit it...

    You can visit EU from NA if you go into settings on the login screen, change it from North America to Europe, then login as normal and create a new toon. You can't vote until level 10, but you can at least visit starting at level 1.

    haHAH! I wasn't the only one who didn't know this! <dances>

    btw, yes, if you copy your toon to the pts, dimensions copy too.

    Wow, thanks! I did not know that.

    OP, I'll check out your dimension a bit later!

    Thanks a heap everyone! It's always nice to see people like something I've done.
    Took a few more screenshots for people to see. Some of the trees are good for climbing, sitting and sleeping in as well! I'm tempted to try to build a tree house of some sorts when I get the chance. Although I'm not sure how to proceed with that.
    It looks better at night, with all the lanterns glowing. So if it's daylight when you pop by, I highly recommend going back again at night, it's worth it.

    Thanks everyone! <3

    I was lucky enough to get gifted a few items recently, so I've prettied up some places. I love the blooming cherry blossom tree, it makes for a pretty sight with lanterns and all.
    I am a bit unsure of what I want to do with the pond, though. I wish there were more aquatic plants to chose from that doesn't look so sinister.

    I visited your lovely oasis yesterday and it is soooooo much more beautiful and serene in person! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

    Your arrangements of rugs and seating areas are very well placed and the whole place feels very relaxing and well balanced. I particularly enjoyed all the candles on the rocks and the lanterns in the trees. Great dimension!
