On May the 30th 2009, the 1920s Berlin Project opened its doors to the public for the first time.
I was still a noob, only 3 months in Second Life, barely knew how to stick two prims together, yet somehow managed to create a tiny bit of my dream in a skybox on rented mainland.
I could have never imagined it to turn out to become such a huge success, a sim with a the most amazing community, a sim that in stead of being just a bit of fun turned into a huge part of my life.
And not just my life, I’m very proud to have tenants who have been living in this city for 2,3, 4 and even 5 years!
Many of whom I’d call close friends.
I’ve loved every minute of this time traveling adventure and it still is only the beginning.
If all goes well, I may start on a second Time Travel Roleplay sim later this year.
But I’m not making any promises!
To celebrate this milestone, we’re offering our regular tenant,s guests and visitors 5 days of events, but we’re also inviting tourists, strangers and people who have not yet visited our sim to join us.
On Open Door Day and Relaxed Rules Day you don’t even have to wear 1920s clothes or have a human avatar.
You can find 1920s Berlin by clicking this link: http://slurl.com/secondlife/1920s%20Berlin/236/232/751
On all other days of course, the regular 1920s dress code is in effect.
We look forward to seeing lots of familiar but also new faces visiting us.
Here is to the next 5 years, prosit!
Schedule of events:
Thursday, May 29
All day: Open Door Day
On this day everyone is welcome to visit our sim ‘as they are’, with other words, you can ignore our strict 1920s dress code and you can also use non human avatars.
Several of our tenants will also open their doors and an ‘Open House’ sign will show you where you can enter and explore how the people in the city live.
Berlin tenants who want to sign up for this, please contact Herr Sein Loire.

Relaxed Rules Day: All day
On this day we forget the 1920s Dress code and allow all kinds of avatars.
But be warned!
We also allow our tenants to ignore all the other rules of the sim and this usually means they will go a little nuts…
