If you have not been here before this is one place that is not to be missed.This Japanese sim, that appears to be set in the Tokyo of the near future was made to be the set of a movie. This movie of the same name is a series of machinima.

In a brief synopsis of the first movie it would appear that a series of events culminate in someone turning into a huge cyborg spider looking thing after inhaling a strange gas that was released from a cannister when his brief case is knocked out of his hands by would be robbers on a mission. Then the S.I.C. agent and heroine of the city, a rather petite girl named Crimson has to spring into action and defeat the monster in grand style.

If you want to learn a little more about the sim and story you can check out the site and videos here Sick1 , Sick2 both of these are subtitled in English and then there is the trailer for Sick3 that is rumored to be coming out sometime in July 2010.

Sick spans over 3 sims , the first being Sick, consist of a dense urban landscape and vast city with many nooks and crannies that lends itself to RP and combat rather well. There are a few shops, different kinds of restaurants and other cool areas to the city including giant transformer and a bar that has a model of the transformer right inside.

If you look around and come to a platform with a rusted old carousel there are some binoculars like the kind in high places that people put change in to get a look. If you sit there you will get a little guided camera tour of the city. I have been there several times and I still do not think I have seen it all.

Then there is Sick2, this sim is the literal bridge to the 3rd sim, along with the bridge that spans the entire length of the sim there are some buildings that are industrial in nature and to me looks like some kind of plant, the big stacks with smoke billowing out into the air, have poked around a little here but was not there very long. As you walk across the bridge you start to get a glimpse of Sick5, the third and final sim.

Coming into Sick5 you can see that this was once a bustling city too, but something tragic has taken place here, looks like an earthquake hit the city, with old abandoned cars, buildings toppled, and the place in massive disarray cannot help but wonder how it got this way. Still many places to explore here and I even saw cute little studio apartments on this sim, many of them are deceiving of the situation just outside the door, well decorated with all the comforts of an area in much better shape. Lots of cool things to see and well worth the time just walking around there.

For the Creator Mr Curtiz this is merely a hobby, lets be glad that sl provides a medium for such great art that we all get to enjoy. What are you waiting for? Mxx
