Pay to sail. That would certainly kill immersion and pizz a lot of people off.

Why would it kill immersion? You sail up to the toll gate, pay, and the ban line disappears. Many RL canals charge tolls. SL supports pay access, with the "pay for access" option on land.

Pay to play

It's not great, but if Linden Labs won't provide navigable water, it's up to private enterprise.

You get all bent out of shape when someone disagrees with your suggestion and then you turn around and insult my intelligence as if I don't know anything about SL? What the hell is wrong with you? Stop trying to force those of us on low or fixed incomes out of SL with your damn nickle and diming people to death.

Not to mention that the option to sell passes is almost universally hated within Second Life.

There were/are very few places that actually use(d) the option to do so and for bloody good reason.

A Toll Way was never one of them.

And those ants... I have been looking for a texture like that for a project, so now I know who to IM about it :)

I just checked them out and they are very similar (it not the very same) particle system object I saw in a termite hill on an African themed sim 10+ years ago. It makes clever use of the bounce and target options to make the particle ants/termites wiggle along their explore/return paths.

Hmmm I haven't thought of particle. My idea is Indian (Native American) torture: Buried up you your neck and face eaten by ants - I would make a poser that puts you into the gound with a alpha-sphere over the head with the ants texture LOL

Native American torture makes me think of the Potawatomi Casino in Milwaukee, which Mom loves.

This 16m2 parcel somehow was forgotten about when the lindens subdivided the region. It stayed connected to a larger parcel in the region which I acquired  years ago. Anyways it is in the middle of a Linden road. Being here 13 years or so I get bored. I placed this dead alien here probably 3-4 years ago, in a moderate region,  as a joke for travelers on the Linden roadways.

 

Went and saw this today. All boxed up but the ants are still active  :)

Some people just can't stand it when others actually enjoy something they don't. Whoever did that, is pretty selfish and petty.

I won't deny that. At least being selfish, "can't stand it when others actually enjoy something they don't" is pretty subjective though.

Edit: We came to an agreement and the site looks like this now:

P.S.: I love the picture with the fire around the crate!

Not worth going to take a gander at now. The ambiance has been destroyed.

Oh well, the great ambience, has been completely ruined now. Whoever passes by that road, cannot enjoy the pleasant view of a rotting corpse in the light of the setting sun anymore...

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

One man's trash is another man's treasure.

The world does not revolve around you. There is no excuse or reason for not allowing others to enjoy the things they like. You do not have to go where the alien is. SL is a big place. There is room for things like dead aliens on roads. You may want to go find your sense of humor. You seem to have lost it somewhere along the way.

 

You know, if you use Firestorm, you can always derender it. Then you won't ever have to see it again yet others will be able to appreciate the humor.

Oh for ...

If it wasn't removed after someone reported it (a waste of an Abuse Report to be blunt) then guess what? There's no reason at all to complain about it nor alter it.

Move on and get on with your Second Life.

Believe me, I had the brake pedal through the floor board. Someone like that isn't worth getting banned over.

I think the addition is pretty funny. I hope it ends this forum thread. I don't want anymore ( I do know of one L*nden stopping by to take a look, he was merciful and tolerant) of "their" eyes noticing anything.

Hopefully the objects were made phantom. Sooner or later some poor sap will be riding or driving down that road then blam! and it won't be a security orb. I wonder if the alien had good insurance.
