  1. So I too was playing around with a chalet, tried a couple, decorated entirely but decided it was not for me. I missed the cosy nature of the log homes. So I rolled one, first try I landed this beautiful lakeside log home. I'm in love. This is the living room, overlooking the lake. I added a hearth for the Ghibli-inspired comfort. The bedroom I kept clean and simple, white linen, a small desk and a fish tank. The laundry room is in the cupboard. I may have left a couple pairs of my own linen lying around too. I went with an upside down house, with the kitchen and bathroom upstairs, as well as a small living area. For the kitchen I went simple and minimal, just a couple of essentials. The bathroom is adjoined, with the toilet hidden away in the cupboard. Hope you like it, I'm certainly at home now.

  3. This is our Chalet home, it was really nice to decorate but I did struggle a lot. I am very picky with the colors and want to always use colors what blends with each others that much as I can Still prims left, so might use more on kitchen.

  5. The ad says go premium .. private homes. I don't see anywhere where it specifically says Linden Homes. I personally own 4 parcels of land. But only two of those are Linden Homes. I use my private land, which happens to also be double prim, to rez a Trompe made home I use as my private home. Going premium doesn't mean your private home has to be a Linden Home. You can buy mainland and rez whatever you like.

  7. Calm down. No one is hating on Cory here. On the contrary, I'm sure most if not all of us are big fans of her creations.

  11. I still wonder about the people who are so paranoid. Most of my own land is open-rez, 20 minute autoreturn. Very little trouble. There was someone who tried to rez a house in my parking lot, and I told them where they could find a big Linden sandbox and rez large objects. At a few GTFO hubs, my NPCs, wearing "GTFO Hub Loss Prevention" T-shirts, approach new visitors and say hello. They give the impression someone is watching, which is enough to reduce griefing. I've been tempted to make an NPC in the form of a grumpy old man with a cane who approaches strangers and yells "Get off my lawn". But I don't want to have to deal with the customers who would buy such a product.

  18. It takes me forever to do my unimpressive decor (lol!), but I have fun with it. For furniture that provides pops of color, I've always liked Plaaka (kitchen) and Zinnias (curtains and daybed below). Last time I was there, a lot of Plaaka's furniture was in gachas or scattered around in random buildings, it can take a while to shop there.

  20. Every ~minute or so, temp rezzers that let the system remove the items have more than one of each item rezzed simultaneously, and, if you sit on one of them, they'll have three rezzed simultaneously. That makes them more laggy. The reason is that they have to make sure that the fresh item is already rezzed before the old one is removed by the system. So for a short time, there are 2 of them. But if you sit on one, the system won't remove it, and you end up with 3 of them rezzed for a short time each ~minute. You don't see them though because they occupy exactly the same space so it looks as if there is only one there. I know these things because I made and sold a temp rezzer a long time ago

  21. I was replying to another comment by giving an example of a particular situation that is unacceptable to me. I am not going to give you the information you seem to want because you have already made up your mind that it is worthless, and I take your question as rhetorical. Bear in mind though, that I am only one person and you cannot know how many others have been in this position. Furthermore, I have said elsewhere that there other reasons for wanting security (which did not form part of the particular situation I was describing). I'd expand on that but I have no wish to give you another reason for amusement.

  22. h This is the first time I've only seen Chalets on the land page. A few seconds later, a Vic showed up. https://i.gyazo.com/8b2b8426b92d5a45e1b2738434da29d6.png

  23. The Tromp house and the one in the advert are the same house. The picture is flipped horizontally. And I am not sure why people speculating excitedly on a possibility of a new home being accidentally revealed in an advert became the first stage in an impending mob march on Trompe L'oeil. I think people are reading too much into animated gossip.

  26. The ad says "private home" not "Linden Home". Premium can get you regular mainland as well. I don't think this was an error (and I wonder how much the sales of that cottage will increase for Trompe Loeil?)

  27. that is a cultural conditioning response. The people we see are not books they are people a black person is black. A white person is white. A brown person is brown. And so on a often response from those who don't want to acknowledge a difference which is staring them in the face is to say "I don't see colour, I treat everybody the same, as we are all people" this is very comfortable position to take. Like as I don't see/acknowledge the difference between me and the other person then I can relate to them from the comfort of my own cultural perspective. I don't have to see or acknowledge their cultural perspective, because according to my cultural perspective we should all be the same sharing the same cultural perspective, namely mine. This way of thinking is predominant in mono-cultural societies when we see and acknowledge the differences, and we look at ourselves and others thru the other person's eyes and note the differences from their perspective, then this way of thinking is predominantly found in multi-cultural societies i live in a multi-cultural city society. I am maori person. When I stand on my back porch, to my left is a pakeha guy sharing with a muslim couple who escaped the first Iraq-Iran war as refugees. Next to them is a recent English migrant family. Behind me is 3 young people from India doing their doctorates at the university - the house owned by a migrant family from China. On the right side is a row of 4 houses. Maori couple with kids, then retired Scots lady who migrated here as a child after WWII, then next house a elderly Samoan couple, and last home a couple with 2 kids, one parent pakeha and the other whose parents came from the Philippines none of us see each other as the same. And we don't care that we aren't the same. We know that we are all different from each other and we just get along with each other as neighbours. While also knowing that we are subject to the laws of one country legislated by a democratically-elected parliament. The fact is even tho we are legislatively/governably treated the same, this can no more make me a pakeha than it can make me samoan or scots or white or black and sometimes I just wan to hang out with maori people like me. So I do. And sometimes my muslim neighbours have muslim people around their house, some of the women wear head scarves. And sometimes my Indian neighbours throw a party and play indian music and lots of indian people come. And sometimes there are all these samoan people visting my samoan neighbours house. And sometimes my English migrant neighbours converse with each other in their garden in their native tongue and if it was suggested to me and my neighbours that we are all a bunch of racists for doing this then we would look at each other and go: what ?!

  29. Now this is most likely very heavy in textures and triangles but there certainly could be SOME reasonable pieces in the mix. This is only part of a VERY big set at K9. But keep it in mind if you have been looking for something like this.

  30. Most of the time my avatars turn out to be 20-something. I don't really plan these things, because there's already more than enough briefings going on in real life. In Second Life I just take a free flow approach to the process of creating a look. This time I managed to create a slightly more mature look. Maybe he's in his 30's?

  31. Great advice! I also always take a look at the Simulator section of the Statistics Bar (Ctrl-Shift-1) especially checking for the Scripts Run percentage and if you're lucky, any Spare Time in the frame. Otherwise you may find yourself sharing an otherwise empty region with a stack of breedable factory farm skyboxes.
