Question

Hi everybody! I'm going to upgrade to Premium and I've read about the linden homes, but how many prims can I use having a Premium account? Or maybe it doesn't have anything to do with it lol. I still don't understand how it works but I know that I need as many as possible (ok, I mean a lot. I have bathroom, bedroom, kitchen and living room sets and the apartment I rented only allowed me to have 50 prims). How many prims would be ok? Thanks!

Prim usage and Premium membership have absolutely nothing to do with each other.

Well...except in one very limited sense.  One of your Premium benefits is the option to get a free Linden Home, which are on 512 square meter parcels...or you can buy up to 512 sq m. elsewhere on the Mainland, and not be charged a monthly tier fee for it.  512 sq meters of land has a "carrying capacity" of up to 175 prims.

From the above, you might surmise that prims are tied to land size...and you'd be correct.  On a 512 sq m. parcel, you can have 175 prims.  On a full mainland region, 65,536 sq m., you can have 22,500 prims.

But you don't have to be a Premium member to have land.  You DO have to be Premium to OWN Mainland...but as a Basic member, you can RENT Mainland from another resident, or lease a parcel on a Private Estate.  The size of the parcel will determine how many prims you can have there...or in the case of some rentals, the landlord will tell you what your prim allowance is; it might not be tied to the parcel size.  For example, I rent apartments in a high rise tower, and give the tenants a 450 prim allowance.

No, it doesn't have anything to do with being Premium.  ANY parcel that is 512 sq m has the same prim allowance (Land Impact) = 175.  The only real difference for a Linden Home is that the house itself does not count in the total.  If you owned your own 512 sq m parcel, the house would count in the total allowance.

Note also that ONLY Premium member can own MAINLAND or a LINDEN HOME.  Other 512 lots that are private may have completely different rules. 

READ THE INFO BEFORE RENTING.   All mainland 512s will have 175 prim allowance now.

To be thorough:

A 512 sqm parcel on a mainland region has 175 LI. On a homestead it would be 39 LI (not really worth it, eh?). On a private region (20K LI) it would be 156 LI. Finally on a private region with optional increase to 30K LI, it would be 234 LI. Nothing in SL is simple.
