A London Role Play Simulation
This is a simulation of London intended for Role Play. Unlike a Google Earth map nothing really looks like London. It has double decker buses and red phone booths and a tiny tower that might be taken for Big Ben, but it is nothing like London.
And yet it is a kind of model of London. One that does not aim to educate or map London, but to simulate the experience of London. Second Life models can often be thought of like stage sets. In movies Spain can be used to film a movie about Russia or New Zealand can become Middle Earth.
