On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres

I’ve been looking for a new shop lately. With all these hunts, festivals and special sales I have begun to outgrow my current home for Vaughan’s. Now, I don’t deny it. I am a fussy cunt. I want something built well, and have the ability to modify because I like to tweak. This led me to Oriolus Oliva‘s The Golden Oriole. Hubba Hubba. An obviously experienced builder, Mr. Oliva has made a shop of delights at every turn. I was personally smitten by one building in particular, The Copernicus Tower.

outside, looking up.

The tower is a three-story building with a giant globe of the earth on top of it. Yep. I said “giant globe of the earth“.

The entry is all stone work with two rooms and modest windows. You can easily envision this room being filled with a frantic scientist cluttered with books, desks, reading couches and maps on every wall.

Entry, with two rooms.

The second level is a observation deck. Surrounded by windows and beautiful sculpty columns, you can look out at the stars. Maybe inhale some ether or hash and pass out on a mattress covered with old furs.


The final top floor is the coolest part of the whole building. It’s a planetarium. You land in the middle of a slowly rotating solar system, complete with twinkling stars and planets gently floating by you. The textures are gorgeous and soft.


Lastly, instead of using stairs, Mr. Oliva has opted for a teleportation system which takes you to all three levels. The total prims used is 130, which seems incredible when you see the structure in person. The tower is priced at $2,800L and comes Modify/Copy. This would be a beautiful addition to any science loving sim or role-playing 15th century europe.
