sky box

Question

  • 0

A sky box is a house designed or intended to be used in the sky rather than on the ground.  This is a common option in SL as it means people can keep the ground-level of their land for attractive or peacful gardens.  Alternatively, if the ground-level and/or neighbours are just plain horrible it means you can get away from them by going for altitude.

To use one, you'll need some land to live on.  Then rezz the skybox and position it to the height you want.

Hello Tali, this article and video in Knowledge Base gives you further information about Live in a Skybox


A
"skybox" is basically a home that's many hundreds of meters in the sky.
They have this name because they traditionally look like boxes,
although they can take many forms, like a floating castle.


If you own a parcel of land, you can have a skybox. A manual way to get up is to:


  1. Rez a prim (right-click the ground and select Create).
       
  2. Right-click it and select Sit Here.
       
  3. Once seated, click the Object tab of the Tools window (you may need to click the More >> button to expand the tools).
       
  4. Set Position (meters) Z to 500, which is a typical skybox height.

Watch this movie to see how it's done:

 

It does say a typical position is

Position (meters) Z to 500

But the SL Max. build height - 4,096m. (Second Life Wiki > Knowledge Base > Limits)

A teleport point sited on the ground would be a good way of getting to your skybox if you set it to a height greater than 500m
