Sometimes I feel like I am reporting on little bits of virtual history, the deletion of a sim always fills me with a little bit of sadness, but at least we have photographs and stories to look back on to know that these places did exist and people led a small part of their virtual lives there. Yesterday we said goodbye to Virtual Chelsea for good, but it's not all sadness, it's new beginnings with the birth of Virtual Westminster! The old Chelsea sim has been moved next to Virtual Mayfair and renamed to make it a new and exciting City of Westminster.
The road already runs straight through from Westminster to Mayfair, thanks to careful planning by the London team, and Big Ben already looks at home peering across at Piccadilly. Westminster is a brilliant place in real London and will be an asset to Virtual London, I can't wait to see how it develops and with the wonderful London builders, I just know that this will be another showcase sim. Chelsea, like Soho, is no more, but I'm sure a lot of people will remember it with fond memories, I know I will.
