ChinRey Posted December 11, 2019 Share Posted December 11, 2019 (edited) This is how the southernmost part of Greater Coniston looked a week or two ago: The road used to continue into the next sim and end at a lovely fishermen's port but the owner gave up more than a year ago and abandoned his land. I wanted to buy the land myself and extend my own build but there was no way I could afford more tier than what I already pay. A few months ago a landflipper bought all the abandoned land, split it up into smaller parcels and put them up for sale. I watched on the map as some of the parcels sold but didn't go near because I was afraid of what I would see. Today I finally mustered enough courage and this is what I saw: That's just one little bit of it. Four of the parcels have been sold now and the landflipper has decided to decorate two more. Each of these six builds is completely different from the others with its own personality yet they fit together so well. Rather than fight each other, they compliment each other and what I and others already had in place, making everything look better and richer. I do actually know the owner of that lovely What Next cottage, she's one of my former tenants, but I haven't seen her for ages and the other new neighbours are total strangers - one of them is a newcomer even. It may be sheer luck, but my corner of mainland has been almost immune to eyesores for longer than I've had the land. People come and go, often wthout ever meeting each other, yet everybody seem to just naturally respect each other. I hope it'll last. There are other parcels for sale here. Still, with all the talk about how bad mainland is and how horrible neighbours are in SL, this shows that it doesn't have to be that way. But... Right behind these houses there is a low hill and right behind that hill are some parcels where many years ago some Lindens had fun rezzing plywood prims before they got tired of it and left. It's out of sight, but only barely. Edited December 11, 2019 by ChinRey 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
