What would you do with 7,000 unused prims

Recommended Posts

A short while ago, I closed down a public club/hangout I was running on my sim.  Now, my sim is mainly just housing for me and a few friends, and I have 7K+ prims paid for but unused, and I hate idle resources.

So, being a man of little creativity or vision, I am coming to you, dear Forum dwellers, to ask for ideas, since my wife will just use it for more breedable teddy bears if I don't put it to better use.  What would you do if you had an extra 7K prims lying around?

Maybe I'll make a contest out of it.

Rural and grunge?  So like West Virginia?

I would use it to build a matching environment for my house of choice. This time of the year, I would probably go for a late autumn/rainy winter kind of feeling. Old english/european house, surrounded by woodland with a path leading to a beach with some dunes and washed up driftwood and huge stones.

Here is what I made with 700 prims. It's an old build and an upgrade is long overdue but I hope it'll still give you some ideas.

I would have used most of those prims to make six or seven sky platforms with different landscapes such as a park, a forest, a tropical rainforest, a mystious lake surrounded by rolling hills, a mountain landscape, a desert etc.etc. If it was a free standing sim I would have added matching surround landscapes too.

For the rest of the prims, teddy bears do sound cute. ^_^

@ChinRey I could do with someone like you to move in. :) 

It's open to the public so everybody are welcome.

I should mention, this is a whole sim of course, just as the OP has. But the concept works well for smaller plots too. I know @Penny Patton does something similar on a fairly small parcel and she's not the only one. Just make sure you don't ruin your neighbours' view.

There's a limit to the space of course - you don't want sky platforms too close to the ground or each other - but LL has given us these huge prim quotas and they charge us top dollars for it. So why not try to make the most of it?

7000 prims? Excuse me while I fall over and faint. 

Holy cow.

I'd terraform and sink most of the available land and make an underwater photography/exploring place. Then with the leftovers I'd do the platforms, like others have said, with varying themes depending upon how many prims are left from the main build.

My last build was in the now defunct portion of Fanci Deep, where I was not allowed to terraform, and I'm thinking I had about 1000 prims to extend over about 1/2 a sim. It was a sunken town, definitely not a traditional mer place (though mers loved it). I think I'd do something similar and MOAR!!! rawr! Photos:

That's wonderful and this mer certainly would have loved it. But sadly I missed it. :(

I wouldn't dream of ruining anyone's view and I have strict rules about platforms, but I presume you were making a general comment.  As for me not using my primmage it's simply that I always seem to be doing something else and at the moment I have all the items I need around me.

Oh! Oh! As part of my skybox theme after the flooding is done... This just came up with Orwar in the "What's wrong with males?" thread. We were discussing setting up a Misanthrope's Hangout, but I don't have land, and the place would have to have many rooms or else the members would end up seeing each other and that would be awkward. Conall reminded us of extra 7000 prims and... well. There you go! The only official misanthrope's lair in SL!

I was going to join the Secret Santa thing, but my wish list wouldn't be appropriate for general audiences...

   Goes off to have a look at Beth's wishlist. Comes back looking as if I'd seen a ghost.

   Okay, I did not expect that.

I'm thinking more of a 20 story building with various themes on each floor, so I'm really advocating 20 sex clubs. Further discussion of the themes should probably be moved to the adult section of the forums, but then nobody would see it since it's hidden as far as possible at the bottom in hopes the chaste people don't notice them.

Well, as one of the chaste people, I know it's there but I just don't bother looking.  It's about as interesting to me as the sports pages.  If you're worried about mods you could always hint at something and point to an expanded version down there.  In the forum.

You could do 69 clubs with that many prims.

Not the way I decorate! That's only 101.4 prims per club and that's only like two bondage racks and a bed! 😋
