Insilico has been my favorite SL destination for years. Unfortunately most of the roleplay there happens during U.S. prime time. If you live in the European time zone, it's somewhat difficult to participate.

I have been in SL continuously since 2007 and have had students doing lessons on our university regions since 2008. As a "resident" (does anyone still think of themselves this way any more) of Second Life I have spent countless hours exploring all over this vast virtual world. I have also spent countless hours playing in and exploring commercial MMOs developed with huge budgets. I have visited Insilico a numer of times over the years and found it beautiful but frustrating because it always seemed to be simply a gorgoeus show piece full of building facades but with no depth. When I do work in RL I often look for locations in SL (including my own regions) to sit while I work. Recently I went back to Insilico determined to take my time and explore the environs thoroughly. As I explored I began to see Insilico much more clearly, I began to discover the incredible detail that pervades the regions that make up Insilico and began to fall in love with this amazing place. I finally found an apartment I can offord with a view to die for and have set up a cosy nook to go to to do RL work (including working on my PhD thesis) on an almost daily basis. Insilico is a place that grows on you the more time you spend there. Its a place I highly recommend anyone to visit and get to know.
