Meet Me in the Metaverse - Zarbi

This week on Meet Me in the Metaverse, I present a sim still in progress - Zarbi. While taking you all to unfinished sims isn't my typical modus operandi, I was pretty floored by what Jimmer Gabe has already created. Zarbi is a homestead sim where Jimmer's goal was to see what he could create in a space that only has 3500 prims. Currently, the sim consists of the Cathederal, caves, forest, treehouses, a summer villa, and Aquapolis. Apparently, he's only used about 2200 prims thus far.

Upon landing in Zarbi, you can easily see the impressive gothic cathedral. It sits high on the mountain side prominently featured simwide. Jimmer's real talent lies in the custom sculpts he's made for it: flying buttresses, lancet arched windows, vaulted ceiling, multi-faceted columns, and stunning spires. The stained glass windows really set this build off.

Don't stop exploring at the cathedral though. Jimmer has a whole world below on several different levels. Matter of fact it's wildly easy to get lost in his genius. I was lucky enough to have him as a guide. Take the spiral staircase from the cathedral and explore the caves and the forest. And make sure you get out to the cypress laned summer villa while not as finished as the cathedral it's worth the trip out there.

Lastly, go to the bottom floor of the summer villa and jump in the pool between the'll land far below in a special place Jimmer's made for the merfolk -The Aquapolis. Complete with an amphitheatre, temple, stoa, and merhotel. The channels all connect so the merfolk have plenty of room to swim about.
