  1. I had the gatcha bug for a while - Most of the time I budgeted my spending but once in a while I would find myself standing at the machines like a casino zombie - blankly pulling the lever. Like a gambler, I remembered the wins, and not the losses. I rationalized my habit by saying I would donate the items that I didn't want to one of my groups to be re-sold, but when I looked at what I was going to donate I realized most of it was a bunch of junk. For the better items, perhaps creators can sell them as "limited editions" or "collectibles"?
  2. Do we have an assumption that successful virtual realities need to have super realistic avatar rendering to be popular? I have some expensive avatars in Second Life, but in Minecraft I am happy with the Steve-skin. In Minecraft dressing is easy, but in SL it can take hours to match outfits with bodies, and the forums are full of newbies asking questions like "Why doesn't my new head fit my new body?" Second Life has a lot to offer, but I believe we lose a lot of newcomers by making it so hard to put together a decent look. I won't even get into building....
  3. This is the landing point for a wonderful museum in the Blake Sea. After touring the museum and picking up notecard information about subjects such as Yggdrasil and the Nine Worlds, you can go out back and view a longboat on the water. Next door is a smaller museum showcasing art styles. Where am I?
  4. This cabin is in Sheldon, 19/215/48. It was a joy to explore Bellisseria again - there are so many lovely places there. I can't wait to see what surprises the Moles will have for us in the new Fantasy regions!
  5. I found the Open Seas Project Box - good information, and a beautiful parcel! http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Fudo/20/149/22
  6. Another thought - if you have the patience, visit the parcel at different times of day and on different days of the week. (Advice based on experience - once pitched a tent without noticing the Midnight Express Train's track was a few feet away.....)
  7. This one may be hard to find - it is a store in Jeogeot - off the Northern Spur Road but visible from it. Not far from the Old World, and in a region I cannot pronounce. Just down the road is a giant airship shaped like a cat. This is an interesting area. Business has been around for some time, specializes in everything to do with water. I was fascinated by the 'habi-domes' displaying different creatures. Here I am looking at some cute beavers. Where am I?
  8. Pavonia Community Hall - http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Pavonia/179/226/120
  9. Tilly, is that you in the front? I confess this location has me baffled. Any hint would be welcomed.
  10. Statue of Slider Jerusalem, Hard-hitting Hippo Journalist of the Future, by Altruima Linden. This is in an obscure InfoHub in Sansara not far from the Sea of Fables. Where am I? Note: This "WTH is?" thread inspired my "Where in Second Life is this place?" exhibit for SL18B. I have moved some of the exhibit to the Moleworks floor of my Tourist Information Center, if anyone wants to see how many places they can identify. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Mocha/19/192/2988
  11. Great outfit! This is the Scenic Ambat Infohub by Osprey Therian. I wasn't able to get a photo of my avatar doing a handstand because someone else was standing there.
  12. I'm on Route 9, between a cake shop, a graveyard, and a port to a fabulous art gallery. Where am I? (This avatar needs to be unbounced,,,,)
  13. This is Nexus Prime and the Doomed Ship In the Gibson Region (of course)
  14. Apparently this used to be part of the Teen Grid, but was moved here in May 2008. Where am I?
  15. Grumphmunch! Why haven't I ever been here before? Thank you!
