  1. You might not know that the Sansar client has recently been updated to include a carousel to select a custom avatar, as well as Quests where you can earn free Sansar dollars to spend on the Sansar Store. A new step-by-step guide for Sansar newbies has been posted on my blog. Please feel free to give this link to newcomers to help them get started: https://ryanschultz.com/2019/04/12/how-to-get-started-in-sansar-a-step-by-step-guide-for-newbies/
  2. Signature Gianni and Belleza Jake probably have the most clothing out there. There are still a lot of male fashion vendors who sell in standard sizing as opposed to designs for a specific mesh male body, but as someone said earlier, it's less of a problem for male avatars than female avatars. Shop around and demo demo demo!!!

  4. I have a blogpost which I keep up to date with all your options for free and inexpensive mesh heads and bodies for male avatars: https://ryanschultz.com/2018/10/04/second-life-steals-deals-and-freebies-free-and-inexpensive-mesh-heads-and-bodies-for-male-second-life-avatars/ You can pick up a very handsome Bento mesh head from LV Designs for only L$500. The Matt head (SL Marketplace link) may not come with all the bells and whistles of the pricier Bento mesh heads from Catwa and other vendors, but it certainly does the job at one-tenth the cost.
  5. In a word, Second Life has LONGEVITY. After 15 years it is still the most popular and financially successful virtual world out there. And it's because so many people have so much invested in the platform that they stay put, instead of starting over again somewhere else.

  7. I was wondering if I should, in preparation, shut down my existing Linden Home (512 metres squared), for these new 1024 metres squared plots of land. Is there a timeline for this?
  8. Me! ME!!!! I can't wait to upgrade my old Linden Home with one of these!!!
  9. Analog Dog still has many attractive flexi hairstyles, including new releases.
  10. Oh, okay. I've just never heard it described in that way before. Thanks! 🙂
  11. OK, I have a new blogpost where I explain how you can pick up full-body mesh avatars and a TON of high-quality clothing, shoes, and accessories in only 7 stops on the grid, and spending only L$51 total! (Yes, it CAN be done!!) https://ryanschultz.com/2019/02/23/second-life-steals-deals-and-freebies-pick-up-823-freebies-in-just-seven-stops-for-only-l51/

  13. I've never heard of that job. What's a traffic aggregator??
  14. Thank you! This is fantastic and I will be putting in a link to this informative post from my blog (Google "ryan schultz blog" and you'll find it easily). One piece of advice that I do want to give to those poor newbies who despair of ever being able to move from a classic system avatar to mesh (which is a requirement of many SL public-service type jobs lately like host, DJ, customer service rep, model, escort, etc.), is that there are numerous free or inexpensive options for mesh heads and bodies for both male and female avatars. I have pulled together all the info I have on free and inexpensive mesh heads and bodies into one blogpost, which I update regularly: https://ryanschultz.com/2018/09/24/second-life-steals-deals-and-freebies-free-mesh-heads-and-bodies-for-female-second-life-avatars/ If you are looking for male avatars, your options are fewer but still good: https://ryanschultz.com/2018/10/04/second-life-steals-deals-and-freebies-free-and-inexpensive-mesh-heads-and-bodies-for-male-second-life-avatars/ If the job you are looking for requires a modern, mesh avatar you can actually do that WITHOUT spending a fortune. Really, it's true! You should also know that Altamura is offering free, fully-featured Romeo and Juliet full-body mesh avatars for the cost of only the L$50 Altamura group join fee, plus L$1 to pay the vendor (you get the Linden dollar back). Check my blog for more details including pictures, they are probably your best bet for a quality inexpensive mesh avatar if you are just starting out. But this deal ends Feb. 27th, so act soon!
  15. If you missed the Valentine’s-Day-only Altamura group gifts of the Romeo and Juliet full-body mesh avatars and were cursing your bad luck, well, guess what?? THEY'RE BACK, but only between now and February 27th, 2019!! These are not the usual sort of freebie Altamura full-body (i..e head and body) mesh avatar which I have often blogged about before, which is limited to one skin tone and where you cannot remove the head. These are fully-featured, fully-adjustable, Omega-compatible mesh bodies, with Bento heads and Bento hands! Romeo comes in 4 skin tones and Juliet comes in 8 skin tones. Romeo and Juliet are easily the equivalent of what you would usually spend L$4,899 on at the Altamura store (or L$7,750 if you spring for the standard-issue Maitreya Lara mesh body and a Catwa Bento head, and that’s before you buy skin appliers). All this is yours for just the group join fee of L$50 to join the Altamura Design/Mesh Avatars group, which is less than 1% of the Maitreya/Catwa combination. (You pay the vendor L$1 and it gets refunded immediately.) Needless to say, THIS IS AN ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING DEAL WHICH YOU SHOULD NOT PASS UP.
