  1. The People here on the forum vs people on in world, it’s like night and day. I don’t know what it is, people in world just aren’t up for random conversation. People in Second Life are some of the shyest folk I’ve ever met. I’ve actually given up in those respects. Its hard especially if you are accustomed to other social platforms where conversation and socializing is the entire point of why people are there. But with Second Life, that’s not always true. Some people are just logged in to ogle there own avatars, and any random IM’s are not a conversation they’re up for.
  2. My biggest problem with the modern viewers is that they all just have way too much chrome. I want to see the world, not the viewer. Everything from the title bars to the toolbar buttons are just always in the way, they take up so much space, ever since the original 2.0 update and it was never addressed. Unless you use an older 1.x third party viewer you just never got your real-estate back.
  3. I am guilty of not even posting on the forums, but rather just lurking on them. Most of my use of second life involves helping people with scripting via discord IM's. Scripting is the one thing this platform has over any others, it's the most creativity-empowering feature it has. Sadly, I feel like I've got lots of technical knowledge, but no actual creativity. So what I find most enjoyable is assisting people who are creative but might not have the technical knowledge. It turns out you don't have to log in very much in order to do that. You can type up and send code anywhere to help people. Even via offline IM's. I would log in, but I have a hard time finding active people with similar interests. I'm a really talkative guy (with my voice, not my fingers) at that's pretty rare to find in Second Life.
  4. Is this still coming out in late 2018?
  5. If you get a plot and you have no house (Which is very likely, it's the main reason people abandon their plots so it's the main reason you'll end up getting one) DON'T ABANDON YOUR PLOT! Ask Linden to restart the region, houses re-rez themselves on region start.
  6. Right. I owned 1024 sqm in Bay City Brewster for almost a year. The buy-in last May was insane. I won't even admit how much it was. Before base 1024 premium, I owned 512 sqm of the same sim for the last 5 years or so. But, I considered it the best plot of all of Mainland if you only want Base Premium, because I personally hold a high value on neighbors and immersion and, in my opinion, most of mainland is kinda ugly and immersion-breaking, but not Bay City. These new premium homes were so attractive to me that I sold what I considered to be the best plot of mainland, at a LOSS, just to move to one, the lack of double prim didn't even matter to me. The build just looks so much nicer, and playing house in suburbs is all I wanted anyway. It might look like the 9th layer of hell to some, and I get that, but to others, me included, it's what I've been looking for in SL for a very, very long time. Plus i can extend my drawdistance more without dying. And the neighbors are actually online! Totally worth it to me. No regrets. (And even if I sold my bay city plot at a loss, it was still a considerable pile of pocket change.)
  7. A good point. My statement came off as a little harsh too. Rental doesn't work for me, but everyone is different. Still, I don't see Linden homes being any danger to land rental. The 0LI houses are nice, but you only get their own selection. That's one edge you'll always have over LL. As I understand it, LL's setup with linden homes isn't doing anything special that only the Lindens can do - just houses with their root on their own parcels. If you wanted to, you could offer their same service on a smaller scale, with your own 0LI (from the renter's perspective) content/scripts. Not everyone's a scripter, but the stuff they're using isn't too complex.
  8. I got one!! Edit: IT WAS YOURS! Thank you!
  9. I think your region has lost connection to the rest of the gird. I wasn't able to accept your teleport offer. Are you able to leave and return to Tembleby?
  10. I've seen "Traditional" appear a few times during my refresh, but when I hit "Next" to grab it it always errors out saying someone else snagged it first. So I just took that to mean that they do in fact appear on the website instantly. But maybe they don't?
  11. Sorry for the late response, no I still don't have one. Sadly, I guess I missed it. Still refreshing like mad, lol.
  12. Let's be honest, renting has always been a terrible deal for everyone except the landlord. But it's exactly what I've been looking and waiting for. And, the fact that we have polar opposite opinions here is important. Mainland will always have a place. I bought-in to the VERY expensive Bay City plot just to have an aesthetic that was similar to these Linden Homes. That northeast 80s/90s vibe is exactly where I wanted to be. So I'm very happy this exists. Can't wait for them to print more so I can actually get one. I don't think it will kill land rentals, or mainland, though. There will always be a place for people who want to built their OWN place and not fit to a particular theme. For people like me, though, I happily sold my 1024 sqm "prime mainland" Bay City plot to jump on this free plot, which has only half the prims, just for the better neighborhood view. Some of us just want to play dollhouse in a cookie-cutter town. I don't know how many of us there are, but hey, we filled it up fast so LL knew their demographic here.
  13. I'm only seeing choices for the smaller 512 sqm homes.
  14. Now I wish i would not have made alts using the the name I would have wanted to use on my main.
  15. Do not allow yourself to have a snapshot taken where you and the object are both in frame and can be seen at the same time. That really is the point of all of this. You don't want a snapshot of a child standing next to some bondage thing, for example, and suddenly that picture is on the news. Who cares if you aren’t using it, it still looks terrible out of context. Personally I’d advise just not going to adult sims, though. Most I’ve seen really have no place for child avatars. Anything can be made to look bad out of context, and out of context in an Adult region is all you need to get banned.
