Does anyone else get freaked out when you're on a sim by yourself and then suddenly see a green dot moving towards you?

Why would you freak out? Maybe they're there for the same reason you are?

On a rp sim, yes i can see getting freaked out, but a regular sim, no

I would only worry if it is a blue dot rushing towards me at a high velocity because I am mostly idle in my house and the only reason LL would be interested in actually going to my randomly thrown together house is if they are about to send me to the corn field for breaking something too much.

Otherwise no, assert dominance by staring them directly in the eyes, when they look away you know they submit to your superiority. At least that's how it works for animals(and furries) most of the time.

Even if Godzilla approaches you and stomps you right into the ground - I see absolutely no reason to bother. I'd take a few screenshots.

It doesn't freak me out, but if it looks like they're getting close to the area where I am, I will generally check out their profile, and then decide if I want to stay around or not.

From my experience ,it's usually a ninja..So really, there is good reason to get a little freaked out.. Only I got smart about it and took some classes myself..

Yup,the only thing worse than a sole ninja in a sim when there is just the two of you is,a Pirate..

Nothing freaks out ninjas more than Pirates..

So Touche and Avast ye lone ninjas of the grid and your showing up all by yourself N stuff

I be yer Huckelberry,argh

How to understand green dots:

1. 1 green dot by itself - Incredibly lonely avatar who will immediately attach to any visitor like peanut butter. Prepare to be stalked afterwards.

2. 1 green dot by itself - (alternate) Incredibly secretive avatar who will immediately eject you and then IM you to not visit again or there will be consequences.

3. 1 green dot by itself - (alternate) It's @purrrkitten 

3. 2 green dots close together - a couple in a compromising position or in flagrante delicto.

4. 2 green dots close together and 1 green dot by itself - a couple as in 3 above and a peeper. 

5.  2 green dots close together and 2 green dots separately by themselves - a couple as in 3 above and 2 peepers.

6. 3 green dots close together - either a store landing zone or a threesome.

The vast majority of the time, I totally ignore any green dots moving towards me.  If I'm at home, they won't see me inside my parcel and they'll get ejected if they come into the parcel.  If I'm out shopping, I'm usually pretty oblivious to others because I am focused on the shopping.  I monitor the mini-map just enough to ensure that I don't bump into people.

Once I went to explore a place. After a while in my minimap I saw green dot approaching from distance towards me. As I wasn't in any mood for chat at that time I TPed away. Very soon I got am IM: "Coby! Running away was a very rude thing to do! I just wanted to chat for a while."
Well, not wanting to appear as being rude, I said (lied actually) "Sorry, I didn't see you coming. I can come back for a while if you want."  Well, he wanted and sent me TP. We chatted there for a while, and when he was satisfied I went away. ;)

Anyway, I never get freaked out from any green or blue dot approaching me. It's just that I might get off if in no mood for company. :ph34r:

5 or more but less that 10 green dots ,approach with caution..Almost ninja like approach skills are needed..Go stomping around with pirate skills and you may find yourself right smack dab in the middle of the Frey.
