It's been a while since I blogged a new arrival from the Netherlands, but here it is. The latest addition is the New Holland island, so not to be mistaken with Our Virtual Holland.
The Second Life location is part of a new promotion campaign that was launched yesterday;
"NEW YORK, Aug. 29, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- The Netherlands Board Of Tourism & Conventions announces the launch of http://us.holland.com, a fully Web2.0 based site, as well as the official launch of the world's first National Tourism Board in Second Life, www.hollandsecondlife.com."
I'm a Dutchman, so I'd be proud we're finally first in something...
But wait. Wasn't Mexico's National Tourist Board first with the Chichén Itzá?
Anyway, the US.Holland website looks slick and here's the screener from the teleport spot.
The New Holland sim is shaped like a tulip and the flower holds a small canalstreet with typically 17th centurty Dutch warehouses. Main focus in this build is on the Dutch Masters, theclassic Dutch Artists.
First two images are of the van Gogh club, and the last two of the Dutch Masters' House with paintings of other painters.
The build is neatly done by Unreal Designs Emporium, but contracted by Brink Media. It's nothing too special though, this unfortunately is still just a sideshow... The real fireworks has to come from the website, which is pretty cool.
