    Only for the existing 256sqm regions. The new 1024sqm regions would sell like hot cakes.

    Economy 101: If it's new and larger, everyone will want it, unless it's priced too high.

    A current region (256x256) is 64K sqm (or 65536 sqm). A 1024x1024 region is 1048576 sqm, which is 16 times the area of a current region. The big one should have its maintenance fee set accordingly - US$3664 per month. LL could be generous by reducing it to US$3600 per month.

    I notice that some of the stilt houses are landlocked. I would hate to be the poor soul finally excited to see 'stilt home' on the page, click to get your home, and end up on land... O.o


    Patch said you'll be able to choose between all-water houses and ones with land. I assume that means two categories under Select a House when you choose your Linden Home. There are plenty of real stilt houses on land in areas that are prone to flooding.

    The moles are back at work. Here's SSPE1129 and its neighbors to the east.

    Where is this? Will this be viable as boat docks? I can't tell if that 'deck' is blocking too much space or not.

    There's a LOT of pressure on hoaeboat demand - so hoping this are viable boatdocks for sailing fans.


    That's the SL17B Enchant region. The homes have lower level decks that can be used as docks (though they seem a bit high to me). The white posts around the houses that are in the water mark the parcel boundaries.

    Those homes are worth waiting for, and a new theme (previewed at the SLB celebration) is due to be released reasonably soon.

    In this case, reasonably soon means 5 months or more. Once LL gets the simulators running on AWS (sometime this fall, but don't bet on early fall) the moles will still have to populate the regions. They're planning on releasing thousands of homes at once, so it'll take a month or so to get ready.

    The demand is still huge though and it's a shame everything has been pushed back towards the end of 2020. I hope the uplift move is worth it. 

    Let's hope next year things will be smoother. 

    The uplift move isn't optional. If there are to be any new regions, it's required. LL's data center is maxed out, out of date, and they're not going to try to replace it. The decision to go to the cloud was made a couple years ago.

    Are people missing the fact I pointed out that the store has an M for mature rating? ... i am getting worried for the toddlers safety now.. when did these rating no longer matter..? 

    Child avatars are allowed on adult regions so long as they stay away from things specified in the TOS, so they're certainly allowed on mature regions. These are not actual children. I don't think you need to worry about some 18 - 80 year old's safety.

    Allthough if you TP there it does not seem so. Shore is mostly blocked ba a chain of mountains.

    Will they really waste all that precious seaview parcels on nothing but landscape? Not even pretty landscape!

    Those mountains are LL's solution to a viewer glitch that happens when water at two different levels are in the scene simultaneously. The water level for the cabin area is 50 meters. When you get to the shore the water level is at the standard 20 meters. LL used different water levels in different Victorian regions and people would see the glitch. I saw it while standing in a Victorian region with a higher water level. I zoomed in to the shore of a river that was below me, and everything down there suddenly looked like it was under water. The mountains in the cabin region block the view of the lower level ocean so that doesn't happen.

    This situation probably won't last very long.  LL has had plans to move the land servers to the cloud for a long time now.  Those plans are probably pretty close to getting implemented...which is why LL isn't going out and leasing a bunch of new physical servers.

    LL can't lease a bunch of new servers. They have nowhere to put them. They own one data center; it's outdated and at capacity. They're stuck until they can get the cloud move done.

    I hope LL can get that done quickly, but they've been at it a lot longer than they predicted and the problem is complex. They predicted it'll be done this fall. So far their predictions on pretty much everything have been very optimistic. I wouldn't bet on September or October.

    So, those 6 sims arent on the SL grid? Funny, they show up on the map.. The cam director has a SL profile.. and is a member of a SL group.. Which isnt part of the camp, btw. How is it not part of SL?

    They're on the grid, but they might as well not be. None of us can go there. The people who are signed up through the Reg API can go there but nowhere else. They have no contact with any other part of SL. The camp director would have to be using an avatar created through the usual SL registration in order to have a profile that you can see. That avatar wouldn't be able to go to the camp regions; they'd have to use a camp-registered avatar to be in them. That was what happened when my company did the same sort of thing around 2008 -- my avatar registered through the company had no access to anything except the company's region, and my SL avatar had no access to the company region. 

    Because of under-13 avatars being allowed by the camp, I assume Linden Lab has a document signed by the camp stating that the camp assumes all responsibility for anything that is done on the camp's regions. It would be foolish for LL to allow it otherwise.

    hmm...by that logic if they put up one rate and Lindens with that rate end they charge from me more than i was willing to pay without warning?

    bc if it works in one way it work for other way too.With bigger sums it could be bit dangerous.

    They'd give you a few Lindens less. They can save you money, but they can't cost you money. You specified the amount you'd pay. LL can't add to it.

    How that can happen if they take money directly from mine Paypal account in real time and currency reate couldnt change in seconds.

    The rate doesn't need to change. You're actually buying Lindens from other residents who are selling them. They specify what rate they're willing to sell them at. If someone happened to put Lindens up for sale at a better rate than existed when your transaction started, some of your Lindens would come from that seller and the overall cost would be less.

    It smth they call balance adjustment.......but from where and how  it comes- it is unknown to me.No info about it anywhere.


    It looks like the original charge for Lindens you bought was $15.94 but the actual price turned out to be $15.88. The excess 6 cents you paid is the credit.

    You needn't worry about taxes or such. Nobody cares about the balance until it's cashed out. (And you can't cash out 6 cents.)

    I suddenly have  money on Tilia dollar wallet!!!???

    I never sold ANY Lindens and i never plan to do it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I want some explanation, I really want bc that kind thing might get me into bad side with mine local tax department. 

    It is now really small amount but.....Im now feel very unsecure when i buy Lindens or about time when i need pay for premium.


    You might find the reason for the 6 cents in your account history; otherwise you'd have to ask Linden Lab. It's easy to get rid of the balance; buy some Lindens and the 6 cents will be used as part of the payment.

    I have no doubt that LL could create a region that is completely isolated from the rest of SL that could be used by a company for a virtual camp.  It would not be that difficult for them to set things up such that the region is not accessible via regular SL inworld and anyone on said region could not get out to normal SL at all.  

    Back in March, when COVID-19 caused everyone to start working from home and schools to move to a virtual learning environment, LL started advertising their services for Educational purposes, as well as promoting the virtual world for corporations.  There is no way some business would have anything to do with an LL virtual world unless LL could guarantee that they were locked off from regular SL -- and doing that lock off would not be that difficult for LL to achieve.

    Thus the virtual camp could be totally legitimate and be using LL resources and be built via the SL building blocks, but still be totally separated from SL.

    That exists, but it costs a lot. An organization can still set up region(s) that are completely separate from the rest of SL. The only people who can get there are signed up (using the Registration API) via the organization itself. They cannot go anywhere outside the region(s) and can't access the Marketplace. Companies used it back when SL was still in its hype wave; the company I worked for had one.

    The COPPA Act, which only allows children under 13 to give out personal information with their parents' permission, would still apply but perhaps the organization would be the responsible party rather than LL. In that case LL might allow it.

    There are a bunch of mesh avatars in your inventory library.  You could use those as a starting point to see what all the fuss is about.  There are some pretty cute ones!

    Just a clarification: The avatars you see in the Choose an Avatar window are standard avatars with mesh clothing. It's easy to spot the angles on the faces and bodies including the usual glitches. I agree that they're a good starting point. 

    You can still find the old and hideous mesh avatars from several years ago in the inventory library, but it would be a waste of time to use them.

  18. Rezzing was no problem for me, but deleting things definitely was. I'd rezzed a gadget I built long ago to relocate an AFK person into a cave. I couldn't delete or take the gadget afterward, which made it slightly more obvious who the culprit was.

  19. You are restricted to the list of last names that's provided. Those names will be replaced with new ones over time. Retired names aren't available. You can see the list of currently available names by going to Account->Change Name in your Dashboard, then selecting the Next Step button. The last names will be listed. If you don't like any of them, there's a link called Go Back to get out of there. 

    I don't know if Clarity has been used before. It's not in among the current choices. You might as well submit a ticket asking for your preferred name to be added at some point. It likely won't help, but it doesn't hurt to try. Never mind, @Alwin Alcott knew. Perhaps you have a second choice?

    They've been there since at least May 27th. I haven't seen any Mole activity anywhere in the area during the past week. Guess they're busy with SL17B.

    Which is why they can't be depended on to act against him, much like the rest of the political establishment.

    The military cannot act against the president. That would be unconstitutional. Everyone working for the federal government must swear to defend the Constitution. (I don't think anybody except perhaps the Secret Service swears to defend the president.) The military can and has refused to obey the Cheeto. The problem is the Republican side of the Senate is acting as if their oath was to the president and is refusing to do their Constitutional duty to be one of the checks and balances. Now they're trying to stack the judiciary. If successful, the US may be done for.
