It’s another long sleepy summer in New Babbage, that means it’s time to poke around the dark corners of town and find the things that need fixing up. Oiling Festival is officially open now until September 15th, 2019. This year’s categories are:

R.F. BURTON PUBLIC LIBARY REBUILD
sponsor: Serafina Puchkina
full scale budget: no more than 300 LI
location: Builder’s Square http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Academy%20of%20Industry/196/105/111
City Librarian Serafina Puchkina would like to rebuild the RF Burton Public Library. It was originally a “crackerbox” build from the early days of SL by Canolli Capalini, and it has weathered at least one previous rebuild. It’s a good old pile of bricks, but it is too big, too primmy, and with that unused 3rd floor, it’s seriously showing its age.
Proposals for the new library will be built on 1/10 scale on the given lot model base and rezzed in the public sandbox in front of the Academy of Industry. Pick up your lot model in the Academy auditorium and unlink the bare prim. Further instructions and a LM to the existing build are inside the prim.

Stalls, barrows, shoe shine kits, food carts & more… who and what lines our streets and public squares in legitimate search of our Babbage Marks? Rez in the back room of the Exhibit Hall in Wheatstone Waterways.

DUBIOUS ACHIEVEMENTS (2D)
Sponsor: Mosseveno Tenk
Location: Exhibit Hall, front room south side http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Wheatstone%20Waterways/153/151/106
We’re all proud of our accomplishments, even if it’s just that wee brief moment before you discover what you’ve really done.
Memorialize these great moments of our history in a portrait. You may also frame your portrait and provide an informative placard describing the event.
Rez portraits on the easels in the front room of the Exhibit Hall, you can rez your own objects rather than use the built in easel features.

AETHER SALON v3 – CONTINUED
Sponsor: Klaus Wulfenbach
Location: special use platform http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/The%20Fells/165/50/3201
This category was left unresolved last year so it will continue.
Time has taken its toll on the Aether Salon and the scripts are no longer functional, and its builder sleeps amongst our honored dead. This will be the 3rd incarnation of the Aether Salon. The build straddles a sim line so that it can accommodate more avatars for special events. The lot is two 512 lots side by side, making one 1024 square lot (32×32) with a sidewalk easement. Prim allowance for the lot is 312 on the Palisade side and 468 on the Academy side. The lots will not share prims. What is physical in one sim is phantom in the other. Keep in mind that the Salon staff would like to have prims left over for furnishings and snacks.
Rez full size on the given lots.

MADE IN NEW BABBAGE
Sponsor: Mosseveno Tenk
Location: Exhibit Hall, front room north side http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Wheatstone%20Waterways/154/171/106
Those small things we know and buy every day, that tourists ponder and expats pine for. Local products you can only get here. What are they? Rez them on the tables in the exhibit hall.
Hint: this is a wide open category. All you have to do to enter is make a product label and slap it on a prim then rez it on the table. Really.

STORA CANAL MONORAIL
Sponsor: New Babbage Transit Authority
Budget limits: Uprights: 15, Track section: 3, Car (optional): 20
Location: Babbage Canals http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Babbage%20Canals/128/146/106
You heard that right… monorail! Monorail! MONORAIL!
Ok, it doesn’t really have to be a monorail, but you get the idea. The Story Canal Aerial Line (ideally an underslung car) has to go over the brides, under (or over) the train tracks, and cross a sim line to get all the way from the New Babbage Shipworks in Babbage Canals to Sir Sir Emerson’s house in Wheatstone Waterways (subject to change), and be entirely anchored on city land.
Rez a section of your “track” between 2 supports, you may or may not include a car. along the canal in Babbage Canals. Final supports may be further apart than demonstration model. Don’t be a dick about placement so everyone has room to rez. Keep in mind that only one side of the canal is available for prim anchoring on the Wheatstone side of the path.

MESH/SCRIPT/STORYTELLING TEAM CHALLENGE: THE GREAT BLACK FELL WORM
Sponsor: Emerson Lighthouse
Budget: don’t be a dick
Location: The Fells
Particularly wet springtimes bring bogs and floods to the fells north of the city wall, and naturalists gather to witness a remarkable phenomenon: the rising of the great fell worms. And if you believe the tales Sir Sir Emerson tells of his grand adventuring days, our own errant knight insists that he once rode one across an otherwise impassable bog.
Rez a static and a scripted version of the beastie in it’s natural environment with an information placard nearby to tell us what you know about it. If it’s scripted to move or rideable, that’s even better! Please no lightening spitting (remember the giant slug?) or other features which would make it an annoyance to nearby residents.

location: Exhibit Hall, front room, centerline floor
We seem to be short on manhole covers. You urchins haven’t been using them as go-kart wheels? Make some new ones and place then on the floor of the front room in the exhibit hall.

Location, Exhibit Hall, front room, centerline floor
Where have all the manhole covers gone? We need some new ones!
Kimika suggests these as a source of inspiration: https://www.flickr.com/groups/japanese_manhole_covers/
This is primarily a texturing category, as the final product is a texture which can be applied to a prim or incorporated into a larger texture. Please don’t use transparency in your texture as that causes strange behavior and extra lag.

No giant honking buildings?
June 18, 2019 at 8:11 pm #10185
I don’t want those out all summer. Let’s save those for the end.

HONKIN’ BIG… VEHICLES!
land impact: traditionally 100, but don’t be a dick
location: Storm Belt greenspace
Sandbox Week out on the new green in Storm Belt sim is starting to look like a car show, so let’s have a proper car show. Your Honkin’ Big Machine for this year must be a vehicle of some sort (not actually scripted to drive, but you get my drift, right?). Unleash your inner mortal engine or whatever sort of stupid big vehicle you harbor in your soul.
North side of sim will be dug for caverns after oiling festival, so no restrictions on where you rez.

ARCHAIC CITY OFFICES
Mr Mornington has refused to catch any more rats until he gets a better title than City Ratcatcher. What are other archaic offices in New Babbage? Tell me about their functions, ceremonies, regalia, and anything else you know here:

No takers on this one, Mr Mornington will retain the title of Ratcatcher.
