As long as the parcel is inside the same sim and belongs to the same owner (or group), it will add to your combined available prim count.  (^_^)

You can see your sim coordinates at the top of your screen.  They'll go from 0 to 254 according to your position in the sim. (^_^)

In a way, you can see the border according to the map and/or turn on parcel lines in the view menu to see the borders inworld. (^_^)y

The more land you own (or rent) in a given region, the more prims you can rez there.  A 512 m2 parcel will allow you 117 prims.  A full region (65,000 m2) will allow you 15,000 prims.  Keep in mind that the more land you own the more monthly tier (or rental) you will pay.

As a small clarification, sim is pretty much interchangeable with region, though a person can have a private sim within a region. Also, the co-ordinates go from 0 to 255, but in effect, for building, its a max of 254.9999, at which point, you may end up encraoching on another person's parcel, sim or region. those co-ordinates matter from teh center of a prim. So a 10m prim can sit at 254.9999 and 4.9999 of it will be outside of the parcel.


As an answer to your question, all the prims from all the parcels you own in the same region can be used in one place in the same region.

I assuming you're looking at mainland. As long as you're not in the new Linden Homes, I suggest you check out Zero Prim Rezzers to stretch your prim count.

i have gotten good answers but im still having trouble knowing where the region ends? is it the first word before your coordinates up top?

Yes, the region name is listed just before the coordinates:

Gianno  120, 20, 32  is the region of Gianno and the location is x,y,z  with z being altitude.

So a region goes from  RegionName 0,0,z  to RegionName 255,255,z      Z is not all that important when you are just looking to make sure you are still in the same region since that is just how high or low you are.

Hope that helps!

A sim (aka region) is 256x256 meters, not 254 or 255.  A sim consists of a grid of 4,096 bits of land, each a 4x4 meter square block, 64 blocks to a side of the sim.  In general, you want more prims, you get more land.

However, if you rent (as opposed to owning) you can speak to your landlord, and either he or another tenant may have lots of extra prims they do not want or need.  Within a sim, those prims can be reallocated to other parcels of land.  So, if your neighbor has a 4,096 m2 plot, normally 937 prims, and only uses 500 of them, you may be able to work out a deal with your landlord where 300 of his extra prims are allocated to your land.  Obviously, your neighbor would pay less rent and you more.  How to do this is in the wiki.

Its true that a sim is 256mx256m.  However if you are walking in a sim and are watching your coordinate location, you will never see 256,256 because when you hit that point, you step into the next sim and are at 0,0

On the top taskbar of your viewer click on view and then enable Property Lines (an X appears at teh left side of it) Keyboard shortcut is Ctrl-Alt-Shit-P. Every parcel will now have a coloured line on its border. Red is owned by someone else. Cyan is your group's land. Green land owned by only you, yellow is For Sale by Resident Owner and purple is For Auction by LL. There is no seperate colour for region boundaries, but your own psoition is shown on the taskbar at the top of your viewer.

If your talking about using the prim bonus system (ie double prim land) then this is a really bad idea. The bonus system relies on the landlord retaining enough open space to allow it to work, If a sim was not designed from the start to have an object bonus system then throwing one in is going to cause problems.

The object bonus system is sim wide, you can't use it to move prims from your neighbour to your plot, because you will both gain additional prims as will everyone on the sim.

If it wasn't planned for this will mean that the total prims available could appear to be say 20,000, but in reality it's only 15,000. The end result is a sim with no spare prims, and very angry renters.
