Sim Hunt - Another one

Solved :) It is Midian City, indeed. Congrats to the winner! (see comment at the bottom of this entry)

Time flies fast.. not only the days between the posts in this blog..
Sometimes, roleplay areas experience a hype - and get forgotten one day. The reasons can vary and it is not my place, to ponder about these. I just found, today, when entering the Roleplay-level of this area, a poster, that has its origin in 2007:
Click to enlarge - this goes for all pictures
Those protest-posters were all over in SL, back those days, before the ratings of General, Mature and Adult came into place. It was then, the reaction to a blog post by the Lab, to keep an eye open and to report acts that are "Real-life images, avatar portrayals, and other depiction of sexual or lewd acts involving or appearing to involve children or minors; real-life images, avatar portrayals, and other depictions of sexual violence including rape, real-life images, avatar portrayals, and other depictions of extreme or graphic violence, and other broadly offensive content" (Quoted from the Linden Blog).
This was way before the rating of sims.

Anyway, we get off topic... this sim has then obviously not really been majorly updated after that, as the picture shows. However... it is still for me a reference in design. That was before sculpts took place, or RLV was available.

However, leaving the arrival area, and entering the "playground" i get suddenly a pop up message, telling:
"Please be advised the sim will be rebooted August 1, with tweaks to rules and backstory.
Join the -XXX City- group and check the notices for more details.  In the meantime, you are welcome to RP here under the old rules!" (XXX is the name of the area, and since this is a hunt, i censored that out)
here i received the message
When the lights are set right, the decorations fit, then a street can set a mood:

The sim has many well equipped roleplay areas, like for example, a clinic:
and some more. but also many "dummy builds" which are jsut decoration and not having any interior.

So, which cyberpunk roleplay sim is this?

As always, add your guess as comment to the blog post here, the first correct answer will win 100 L$


  1. Midian City! :D having fun touring around here now, too!

  2. Sigh.. wish I'd been around to see this when it was offered... I could have made L$100. I spent a lot of time RP'ing in Midian back in the day. The club with the chinese doors was right outside the alleyway to the medical clinic (the next picture) where I used to work as a nurse. The diner was just past the club down the street.

    Ah well, I'll look for the next one...
