Atlantis World Page

Caring's Atlantis Recommendation

Prepare to stay awhile and enjoy Smaug's 7 islands, Hydropolis - an underwater city, Teleport center, Lighthouse, Space Port and more. Located in Atlantis at 100.0S 951.0E 0.1a 0.


Mars World Page

Canopus' Mars Recommendation

Badger 1 has now joined the ranks of Mars' greatest developers, like Ether, Zig Theos, and Atawa--one giant project after another springs into being, transforming what was empty desert into stunningly modern living places. Badger 1 (alias Lord Sinjinn CHA) has created a worthy successor to his Earth II agricultural development (926N 185E 180--a 2001 Hotspot). Now we have Badger 1's grand recreational center called Babylon II (487.6N 959.9E 285), being developed on the easternmost edge of the Tharsis Rise. A great Raceway is to cross the canyons and hills, and Observation Platforms have been placed at cardinal points; Badger 1's characteristic Garden Walks interconnect with a Transportation Center, and another Gallery reveals more of Badger 1's art collection. Even at this stage, Babylon II is well worth the trip, and there is more than ever to see at Earth II.


Goober King
UTN Web Site

GooberKing's UTN Recommendation

SunValley - AW 18000n 16000w

While SunValley could easily be described as a booming metropolis, it's definitely not your typical crowded city. Part of the USWF, this town is replete with sprawling parks, large lakes, and plenty of open space. Even the GZ itself is a giant park, surrounded by two concentric streams and full of plant life and rock sculptures. The town also has its own plumbing system, monorail, and a network of teleport stations that allows visitors to visit all parts of this sprawling town. Check it out today!

AWHS Web Site

Duskbat's Historical Recommendation

Ok Lets go! Off to Utopia 1158.8N 1058.9W 0.0a 360 in Alphaworld. I found this fine place some time ago one night while I was out exploring. I bookmarked it back then and just this week went back to check it out again. It is a good clean build, it shows how things were in the past. A simple style. This build is thick with trees and takes up a good bit of land with diffrent views. There are a few art paintings that still load and there are birds singing in the air. When I finished looking at the utopia site I explored the other builds in the same area and some go way back and have builds from all of our old aw friends. Enjoy this site and keep building!

COFMeta World Page
COFMeta's Discussion Group

jupytr's COFMeta Recommendation

Meta Mauz - Metatropolis 30N 33W facing S

An older build with lots of interesting structures. Make sure you use the teleport to the right when you first arrive. That will take you to more builds of interest. You can teleport back and walk around to view the rest.
It's nice to find something interesting. We need more interesting builds in Meta!

Redundantly, I want to mention that I could use some help finding good builds in Meta.


Light Form
Yellow World Page

Light Form's Yellow Recommendation

Yellow 316N 14W

I found this build(s)one day while I was wandering aimlessly through Yellow on one of Diamond Lady's many roads that span Yellow. After getting board with the same scene over and over I veered off the road and found this most beautiful mountain range. KillTime, an early citizen, hasn't left anything out in this build. With everything from a vortexed lake on the mountainside, to a tree stricken valley deep within the range. Expertly done and very relaxing, this spot is hot to visit in Yellow.
