Drug Town, RSCM38

I recently visited RSCM38, a unique region in Second Life known for its moody atmosphere of crime and poppy fields. I found myself mesmerized by the poppy field and even spotted some mysterious figures lurking in the hills. The area is beautifully crafted, featuring vibrant, colorful streets and plenty of places to grab a bite.

The vibe here really reminds me of Cuba, from the colorful buildings and vintage cars to the scenic beaches. It’s a spectacular spot that’s definitely worth a visit!

Unlike with BlackDragon, I don’t have to mess with key bindings for movement, which was always a hassle. The Alchemy viewer also comes with a built-in AO tab just like Firestorm. Give this viewer a shot; it seems promising.
