    That is wonderful.  I am so glad you spent the time to document everything. (And I’m qute jealous of your graphics!)

    Wow!  Kimika, that looks like it was a lot of work – thanks for capturing everything for posterity!

    A pleasure. :)  Once I began I had to see it through, and I learned a good deal. And after all that I want to do more so it was a good experience.

    Most enjoyable – the builds, the music, the video capture.  Well done!

    Wonderful!  Very smooth and extremely well thought out timing.  Will you share your tricks with us?  Did you have invisible avi’s clicking on items as you passed?  Did you record a route and then ran it through while recording?  If recorded while live action, what type of mouse did you use?

      Thank you. :)    For the flying sequences I kept it simple and used an invisible prim containing one of my airship scripts – piloting it while wearing a full body alpha and no prim attachments. Its controlled with the keyboard which left me free to click on things with the mouse.

      That and test flying routes, then recording them over and over until getting a good or good enough one. I began with about 40 minutes of video then began cutting and shuffling and occasionally muttering oaths which I’d learned while consorting with pirates.

      I hadn’t originally intended to make a full production so much of the recording was a bit rushed. If I could do it over I would start early and show people walking about and doing things.

      I’d be happy to make the flying prim (Wonder Woman’s Invisible Airship: not as fancy as you might think) availible for anyone who wants one.
