Large Image Display: AWGate 5.0: One Floating Island Amoung Many

ActiveWorlds Gate 5.0 launched on November the 26th 2009, in readiness for the launch of ActiveWorlds 5.0 on December the 1st 2009. Here we see the floating island or laputa motif that is common throughout this world. One of the smaller laputa, fairly close to this one, can be seen slowly drifting on the currents of the air - not like a balloon, but with the sly deliberateness of a storm, or a very large and heavy chunk of rock.

Many such laputii are scattered around in the sky. Some very close by, others a great distance off. They jostle slowly for position, following pre-set routes. The smoke of the illusion lifts swiftly, but, for the first-time newcomer, it seems as though there are a million worlds, all sharing this one's place, among the heavens.

That structure in the centre is the main dome of the world; the meeting place, information portal and housing to the many portals out, supposedly to the other islands floating in the sky.
