Visit The Model


Instructions for existing Second Life users:

If you already have a Second Life account and software (if not then see next section) you can access the Pompeii Court using the link below. Make sure that you pick up a HUD in world on your first visit. The HUD (Heads Up Display) enables you to access information about areas of the house and the paintings on the walls. Instructions to get and operate your HUD can be found in world. Either look for the HUD billboard(s) or talk to Eudora Huckleberry, one of our virtual Characters, by clicking on her.

    I tried all this and after 20 mins waiting around watch things loading I was dumped in a ferry terminal in Barbarossa. I have 12GB memory and 30mb line – the whole thing is useless.
