A Saturday Night In Every Limsa Lominsa On Aether [FFXIV]

The ships at Limsa Lominsa

The other night, I did some wandering. I world-traveled in Final Fantasy 14 to every Limsa Lominsa on the Aether data center.

Why? Just to see. Every world server in every MMORPG has its own character. Each one is different. And the sad thing is, once an online game begins to fade, or finally has its servers shut down, all that stuff vanishes. All of it. I can’t visit my old house in Star Wars Galaxies, or jump back into my ship in the Burning Sea. And even though Everquest 2 and Lord of the Rings Online still exist, they are shadows of what they once were.

So, I just took a walk and a few photos of the people at every Limsa Lominsa I could get to on a Saturday night. It’s actually pretty amazing to see FFXIV still so packed all these years later. I first played it back at release, during good old 1.0 at the end of 2010.

What’s going on in the other data centers? I don’t know. But this week the Final Fantasy XIV team announced that Data Center Travel will arrive alongside the upcoming Endwalker expansion. Maybe I’ll take another walk when it gets here.
