Welcome to the 9th Annual New Babbage Oiling Festival, our version of
Spring Cleaning. We hope you will have time to visit.. and build!
The original Oiling Festival was held in 2009 to add needed items to
the city inventory and invite the greater steamlands to experience the
Babbage way of life. All good citizens and visiting steamlanders are
encouraged to roll up their sleeves, show their national pride, and
The Festival is now open. Building stops at midnight on AUGUST 31ST.
You may use any building technique at your disposal, althought
sculpts will be barred from categories that are intended to be added to
city inventory. Building in place encourages sharing
information and techniques, it helps everyone become a better builder, and it makes it feel like the bad old days when we used to all stand around and watch each other push a prim around.
And….. don’t forget to put what you build on Marketplace so we can all
enjoy it for years to come. (Not to mention that sales help you stay on
your land, which keeps the city rezzed! you only have to list it once!)
Judging and walk around to admire the results will take place on Sunday, JULY 16th.
This years categories are:
