Land Auction

Question

So I bought land from the land auction,  when I checked the land before bidding the prims were at over 2000 now they are at 1126...am I missing something? I'm starting to feel cheated.

So I bought land from the land auction, I put my max bid at 7593L and LL took the money from my account, but I don't know what I actually bought the land for. Last time I had checked, I was the only bidder at around 1600Ls but I only got back 2983Ls. Also when I checked the land before bidding the prims were at over 2000 now they are at 1126...am I missing something? I'm starting to feel cheated.

People can automate the bidding so that in the last minutes the price can change a LOT. Likely that is what happened.  The only way you would know is to watch the bids at the very end of the auction.   Have no idea why the LI would change assuming that is the same lot.  The land impact is determined by the size of the plot. So 175 Li FOR EACH 512  size lot. Make sure that there aren't items that belong to others on the land  -- in case you didn't do that.    You could take a screenshot of the land tab with object and paste in here.

There are two different numbers, one for the parcel's capacity, the other for the total capacity of all parcels in the region with the same owner. If there happened to be other land with the same owner (maybe two in the auction queue, only one of which was actively at auction), the total across the region would be more for that owner. So that's one possibility.

Rusty, Chic is spot on.

Check your $L Transaction History...it will show the transaction to LL, and show you exactly what your winning bid was.  If you got the land at almost $L3000 below the maximum you were prepared to pay, be happy!

When on the parcel, right click the ground, choose About Land.  Look in the Objects tab.  You'll see several numbers.

Region land capacity:  This is the max prims that the land owner has available, given ALL the land she holds in the region.  If LL owned more than one parcel, you might have been looking at this number.  If the land you just won is your only parcel in the region, the region capacity should now show as exactly the same as the...

...Parcel land capacity:  This is the max prims FOR THE PARCEL.  This should not have changed.

The "available capacity" numbers just show how many prims haven't been used yet.  There may be objects on the land using up some of its capacity.  As the new owner, you can Return these.
