  1. Thank you so much Lindal. Very comprehensive. And thanks for the LM's. I'll see you in March. I did not expect to learn details about purchase. I believe you have a wealth of land knowledge and tips and tricks. I learned a lot in this explanation--like the Terragen software, and searching for "terrain files' on marketplace and the need to know Blender for creating custom boulders, etc. and, (grins) that getting "your sand to stop EXACTLY at the water line. Not going to happen." LOL! Got it! LOL! In total this full explanation helps a lot in grasping the real deal--it's not a weekend or
  2. Hi there, All, I'm eavesdropping because I want to buy a private region from LL--either the Plain Prairie or the Loch Lake. In want to go to Lindal's class. Lindal? Where is TP point for your class please? I can't come before March 7. I want to have a lake in the middle that I can swim in and I need depth because my Kismet home has an underground cellar. How can I know the below terraform level of a Loch Lake region. And are some "servers" better/more state-of-the-art than others. Thanks...
  3. THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH LINDAL ♥ for the HUGE Technique Tip! I knew nothing about a "brush" and the step-by-step for using it and the "selection rectangle" are now duly recorded in my new composition notebook for "SL Tech". (grins) I had tried to use the rectangle but I was hung up on trying to get the right touch to make it bigger. HA HA HA! I was slightly successful, but I had NO IDEA how to tell myself to do it again. LOL! I will look you up in SL if I need help messing up land...HA HA HA! Best always, "E"
  4. P.S.S. You can't see it in the picture, but my fundamental hesitancy in using the Subdivide feature is because the lot for the house sits between two lakes.
  5. P.S. Over the next couple of seasons, I'll still try to even out some nooks and cranny spaces around the perimeter of the house and place a few shrubs and/or wildflowers around the it. The homestead is winter now, but it has a HUD-driven four-season changer too. Many thanks....
  6. Well, Ladies. The dungeon is clear and the house is locked in place. It's Friday, 9:45 p.m. SLT (Saturday, 12:44 a.m. U.S. EST.) after at least 4 hours...LOL! It was not a perfect installation. I practiced first on the Here Sim Torley where Torley has a Terraform Box set-up and got enough courage to try on the homestead. I did not use the subdivide feature. I was not sure what it was going to do--based on the different messages I got. I'm not on flat undeveloped land. Sometimes it said I had the entire region selected. I'm not sure how I did that. Another time, it had a different mes
  7. PERFECT LADIES! Many, many thanks, sincerely. I'll be reading all this again to digest it this weekend, then take a big deep breath and start--using low strength movements--grins and giggles. Lindal, thanks for the insight on lowering the water. Not prudent. Not smart to do. Got it! 👺 Mollymew, thanks for the additional procedural tips insight. I'm feeling more comfortable and courageous. I'll check back with both of you here soon--most likely late Sunday--if I've made an attempt and encounter a situation where I think I should stop before moving forward 😼 and/or I ge
  8. Thank you both, Lindal ♥ and Mollymews ♥ What Lindal described reminds me of what I saw when the kind helper set the house three years ago. I remember going to the basement while the helper was outside to make sure all the land was cleared from all the little corners of the dungeon :) ; and the first part of Mollymews, step 9 sounds familiar. I don't think, but I don't really know if my helper subdivided the parcels. Mollymews, the subdividing sounds a daunting but I understand. I'll read it a few times and let it sink in before try :) One thought, on step 5, the dungeon i
  9. I'm reaching out because this is my first terraform effort and new to being an estate manager. I have a large house 2-story house with a basement/dungeon, rezzed on flat land--a full homestead to which I have estate manager rights. I want the house to be raised on top of a flat hill so that you have to walk up about eight stairs to the front and back entrances. A snap of the rear view house from three years ago is attached. It somewhat shows the effect I want to achieve. Someone else did the terraform. I no longer have that helper and I'm reading to learn. Today, without terraforming and
  10. I see in some shops "Buy" and then in some places "Pay". I have never studied/understood why there are two different methods. Personally I prefer the "Buy" when I shop something because then you can check what is included there before actually making the purchase. With "Pay" one cannot check what is included. One just pays and receives the goods and then after the purchase one can check what was sent in the inventory.
  11. Many, many thanks Rya....a very informative conversation at that link...even if I'm not at "mesh-level" yet...help for this project and encouraging for improvement. Many, many thanks. :matte-motes-nerdy:

  13. Thank you Ceera :matte-motes-smile: ... for the tip trick...may be just as good as a "formula" in SL it seems.... BTW, the steps I'm creating are not steep...wide..but not steep. I'm trying to duplicate an "existing original" stair around a deck--(modifying a pro-builder's design) to create a stair set around three sides of a deck. The "original" set is still in place and is most likely mesh or sculpts, given it is a pro-builder's creation..... What's interesting (to me) with my experiment is that the final stair set I created that is walkable, has a couple of steps that are MUCH highe
  14. Thank you Amethyst....:matte-motes-big-grin:...for your additional comments... ALL OF THIS conversation is helping me solve my problem AND get a full understanding. Many thanks...
  15. Thank you Rya :matte-motes-bashful-cute: Will read and save...but clearly..(lol)...I've not "graduated" to mesh yet.... Do hope to get there this year, though...maybe with this project. Many thanks.
