Pellucidar - The World Within


There is a giant crystalline sphere suspended 1000 meters above Opar, my sim and country estate. Its awesome diameter is the size of Opar itself. Within it is another world that I have named Pellucidar. The name comes from the works of the masterful science fiction writer Edgar Rice Burroughs. In a series of books, Burroughs' Pellucidar was a world lying within the sphere that is our planet - a world within a world. So Pellucidar is an apt name for the newest addition to Opar. Incidently, the fantastic worlds created by Edgar Rice Burroughs are the inspiration for James Cameron's film, Avatar.

A Glimpse of The World Inside

Pellucidar is a DrLife World, a creation of my dear friend Leena Ying, owner of DrLife. DrLife World is a 360 degree projection of a gorgeous scene on the inside of a sphere. The effect is spectacular as seen in the picture above. It truly has the feel of a world within. Three scenes are included in the product: a coastal scene (seen above), a snow scene, and a night scene with city lights in the distance. The scenes can be changed using a control panel or a HUD. DrLife World is available at the DrLife mainstore and sells for $1000L. You get three size worlds with your purchase. Amazingly, the worlds are only 7 prims.  So you will have plenty of prims left over to enhance your world with perhaps some buildings, trees, rocks, and other objects to create a wonderful private space. Why would anyone settle for a traditional skybox or platform when you can have an entire world.
