  1. Their new 10% is in effort to sell more mainland, I'm not going to ABC this for some people. Please contribute to an online forum with greater than yourself perspectives in mind. This generic don't give two shts answers wont cut it and we don't need to read something that is just going to make people dumber in the long run.
  2. Very useful information, thanks for spending time on replying like that.
  3. I understand people are bragging about how many cars you own and how many houses you have, then yes I live in La Jolla, California. I work in downtown, my taxes take 1/4 of my paycheck. But none of this has anything to do with Second Life land. Please focus on the issue at hand here in understanding why Linden Labs isn't investing on their growth. What does the new mainland decrease in price even mean for people?
  4. Can someone tell me Lindens reasoning behind really wanting to give away mainland? I assume its on a set of massive servers that doesn't cost much to run. They want bang for their buck on this. The premium scheme is a monthly thing but even that would not raise a lot of money for them. Why don't they focus on private regions and the development of new private "friends only" sims. Some sort of growth factor I am missing here or not able to see?
  5. Virtual Reality will take over eventually. I know it may be five years from now but it is still coming up. Was the square wheels comment a diss on Canadians?
  6. I Ah I understand now! Thank you. I can't wait to see this VR jump.
  7. But why limit users to using a certain amount of prims and certain amount of space? Dreaming with this one; Why not a full private land sandbox for home and not in the directory. <- Christmas Gift IDEA I was looking at the grid survey but if you say its the least that's great. I have seen some beautiful sims that are breath taking on SL, I wont be leaving this guy. Thanks for the advice! It takes a server to host the sim in the current way of life around here but i'm no genius, would LL look into letting residents host their own? Thanks!
  8. On the other hand, what about people that want to have a house? They aren't going to make money from having the house but I am really finding it unbelievable people are paying $199USD for a residential sim, virtual. Maybe allowing the user to host the server themselves would be a good fix for LL but is that possible? I appreciate all the comments here but I'm trying to wrap my head around this better. I get LL needs money to fund the next upcoming projects, but why not focus on the people and its members. Apparently people used to be able to afford homes on here. I'm done hearing about parcels and sharing land, that seems all ridiculous to me, what a scheme that is. Why hasn't other companies taken advantage of this and recreated a world that promoted open world, private sims, and creations? There aren't any from my knowledge. Where is the competition that is supposed to be keeping LL on their toes? I love SL, love its community, but I am concerned its roots are long gone in 2017. I need to figure out if spending my time here with friends and colleges is a good investment or maybe I'm getting baited into a down-spiraling environment where its member are being abused. With the recent booms coming in 3d-modeling and virtual reality, who is going to most likely replace and take the community here? I am reading online and no one is discussing this issue. I see the amount of sims running are becoming less and less each year. Are they killing SL and going to create something new in upcoming years to compete with some company I haven't heard of yet?
  9. I understand that completely now. All of the fees are ways to fund Linden Labs for their improvements and future with new projects, I'm not sure about buying into the "updating second life software" thing at this point.
  10. Really really interesting stuff! Wish LL the best of luck with their decisions. Look forward to the future to come. Thanks for sharing this
  11. Thanks for your reply! Yes with models in game, they do give me the option to local texture. For applying tattoos and other misc things it requires me to upload. It is a small fee but I'm seeing a lot of small fees in a lot of areas that don't help creators. I can understand taking a chunk of sales on marketplace, it is justified. But that is besides my point. I'm lacking to see LL encouraging creators in game, or promoting the influence of new creations. I'm sure in upcoming years this will change.
  12. Awesome, ill keep an eye out for any other information they release. It would be interesting to see where they go with this. Thanks!
  13. True, Ill keep my eyes open for news about the changes coming up. Thanks for your comment!
