Metaversum has recognized this issue, and they came up with an elegant solution: a skateboard! Uniquely suited to move fast through any city, a skateboard is a great way to explore. Tonight I bought one, and did a quick trip through London:
London isn't completely finished yet; thinking about those poor medieval explorers who were afraid to sail to the edge of the world, I bravely went over Twinity's edge to see what would happen. It wasn't scary at all, I just got to skate below London :) By the way: I found out that pressing the control button in Twinity doesn't only make you run faster, it also speeds up your skateboard!
No editing was done, this is one complete recording. It was created with the Wegame utility on a slightly dated laptop with a less than stellar graphics card! The video recording facility in the Twinity client itself (introduced somewhere in 2008) seems to be gone at the moment - at least it's not available to me.
