Please join us as we tour the new equestrian RP game in Carriage Trade. The game uses a flexible, easy to install game engine, the Honor Engine. The Honor Engine recently received a ScienceSim land grant to port the system to OpenSim. We’ve installed the system in SL to showcase its ease of use.
The Honor Engine can easily be used to develop simple-to-complex educational games.
Oopen beta of the new equestrian lifestyle horse game at Carriage Trade begins this weekend. The game is free to play and full of great prizes, free form roleplay and best of all, horses!
We will be touring the different roleplay facilities and explaining some of the activities you can experience in Carriage Trade.
Please make sure you observe our Roleplay Dress Code (available at the entrance) and put a visitor titler on.
Be a horse, be a vet, be a farrier, be a rider, be an herbalist, be a fox, dog or owl…just be there!
We will have open to the public tours Saturday @ 10 am SLT Sunday @ 1 pm SLT
Meet at the welcome area and don’t be late! Carriages depart promptly!

One of the Roses You are Looking For
The Rose Hunt begins on Saturday May 29th and runs through midnight on June 21st. Hunters are seeking 20 Rose objects, each containing one or more Lifestyle, Horse or Apparel items each with a Rose theme.
The Roses are hidden throughout our estate, which includes Carriage Trade and Carriage Trade Northhampton. They maybe be hidden in shops, public areas or parks, which may include public areas of the livery. The will NOT be hidden in residents’ homes or stalls, so please do not enter the residents’ homes or stalls. Repeat: no roses are hidden in any private homes, stables or stalls.
To hunt successfully, select the Rose and ‘buy’ it for 0L. You will receive a folder cleverly named ‘Object’ in your Inventory.
While you are hunting, please behave with respect to all visitors and residents. Please not harass the staff of Carriage Trade during your hunt. We have created fabulous prize items, we know you want them, but it takes our joy out of doing the hunt if we are harassed or if you complain about the prizes. If they are not to your taste, you may always leave.
While you are in our estate, please observe the following rules: NO nudity. NO profanity. NO sexual roleplay of any kind. NO begging for sex, money, or anything else. NO age play. NO wearable horses (they make our beauties sad). NO kiddy, fantasy or anthro avatars (this means no furries, dragons, etc.) NO weapons or violence of any sort. Violators will be asked once to stop doing whatever it is that is against our rules. The second time they will be removed from the estate.
