    On a practical note, it can be frustrating for people who work regular business hours in the Western Hemisphere that they are shut out of a lot of the timed releases. If you're off work early one day or taking a day off you might want to set up the auto-refresh so that you're able to react when a release happens. Since releases often happen on Mondays and Fridays there is an opportunity for those who have taken a long weekend. 


    I live in the Pacific Coast and this is exactly what I did.  I just did auto-refresh when I was done work and if I was on my computer.  And the only day I can do the new releases is on Monday cause that is my day off.  And both houses I got were abandoned and I got them after work.  My first houseboat I got during the second release and I was off work that day as I happened to take a vacation day.

    People don't have to spend 24/7 on their computer, just relax, enjoy the hunt and try when you can.  You will eventually hit the jackpot!

    Why do assume the Team can't do it? I only go by their past success.  They have achieved 4 regions a week now. I haven't been inworld today to see if new region names have been added. It seems to me as name the region now, it's nearly time for their release. There is new region named on the Pickle. It could happen there soon.

    I can't see any new regions named unless I am missing something.  Pearlcoast was the last one named from what I can see.  I don't think @Beth Macbain doesn't think they can't do it, just that the way your post is worded people might think that this will actually happen, when it might not.  That is all.   Not that I am trying to speak for her.

    Congrats to your friend, I'm really happy for her/him! 😄

    And once more bad luck for me. Have not even seen it or any other houseboat if there were any in this release.

    Geeze, sometimes I feel so incredibly disheartened, me goes to a quiet corner to cry a bit. Or a bucket.

    Please try not to feel disheartened.  I know it is easy to say, but there are more regions coming, more houseboats coming and the regions just keep getting better and better.

    The house I got on the first release I kept it until I found out that they would be releasing regions during the week as they were ready.  I tried hard to make that parcel work for me but I just hated the yard, it just never felt like home if that makes any sense.  The sandy one i got 2 weeks after getting rid of my first one and I did try with the sand too, and I got rid of that one today.   Both those parcels I did have for awhile.  The third one, I admit I only tried for a day hahahaha.  This one I have now, I really like it and will most likely keep this one.

    Like someone already stated I had homes in older areas and they where not as detailed wow oriented as some of the newer areas.

    I had one home and you can go back on these posts that was off centered one side of property was elevated the walk entrance was off and rather me keep complaining I released to someone that would actually enjoy it.

    I agree that some plots can just be awkward.  Some have not much detail, some have too much,  or they have some fencing or too much fencing.  You get the idea.  I think they designed them this way for variety cause everyone has there own take on how they want to design their yards.   Some want the stuff already there and some would prefer a blank canvas so that they can do it themselves.   And at the end of the day it is no fun to decorate a parcel you hate, I agree it is just better to get rid of it and let someone else have it who will really appreciate it.  For me, I am not a sand person and I would rather the house go to someone who really wants sand.

    The number of times some people are able to catch and release shows that it isn't impossible to get a home anymore, but it is for people making more casual attempts rather than devoting nearly their entire SL to the quest for the mythical perfect location. 


    I don't think there is any plot that would be 100% prefect.   I was lucky to get a house in the 1st release and my alt got a houseboat on the second release.  I decided that a houseboat really wasn't for me so I got rid of it.  There was nothing special about my first house and it was surrounded by other houses so I got rid of that one and  my next house was all sand (I am not a sand person) but a nice location and then next one was again surrounded by other houses.  I am on my 4th house and I am quite happy with the location.  It is all green and it is by the canal and  even though there are some houses, I am not boxed in by them.    I just find with my computer that when I am surrounded by houses the lag is worse so that factors into whether I will keep the parcel or not.   I also didn't have to spend 24/7 refreshing either to get these houses,  I just try getting them when I happen to be on and have time to try for one.

    Maybe I should have waited until November to abandon my Belli house... :(


    Try not to second guess your decision.   I read your goodbye post and I think you made the best decision for you.  A person doesn't want to feel stifled or not have enough room to do what they want.  You can still participate in this event too and still be part of the community at any time :).

  8. I am not really in SL to meet people.  I am there to decorate, go shopping, explore and play dress up barbie.   I have no desire to voice chat, skype , or meet anyone from SL in RL.  SL is my stress relief from RL and I just want to keep that separate.

    Or to be a genuinely kind and supportive person. :) Looking at Beth here alone, she has like a 5:1 positive karma ratio; me, I barely hit 2:1; my all too frequent sarcasm does me in, I reckon. 😁

    I think too it depends on where and when you post.  Sometimes the forum is dead and no one is posting.  Or it is too hard to keep up and read everyone's post, least of all liking them.  I try to like posts, but  I am also bad for forgetting to use the like buttons.   I wouldn't worry too much about it,  I go by how people post, not their rep points.  

    Just keep being you :).

    The alpha cuts are minimal at best (a thin stripe cut out on both the forehead and the chin) and they are present on the demos to prevent copybotting/theft.

    As an aside: the cost is comparable with that of most other Bento mesh heads (unless the other heads are being discounted in a limited-time sale), and actually cheaper than the other 'big name' brand that's currently popular. Catwa also offers non-Bento heads that start at L$900.

    I agree that the cuts on the demo are minimal and yes most heads are around the same price, however some creators now have it where you can buy the head and hud separately and if you want more heads they are cheaper cause you only have to buy the hud once.    At the end of the day those were really the only things that I would consider a con (or in my case maybe nitpicking) , because the head is just lovely and there are way more pros about the head.   I bought the Catya head anyways despite these two things and it really is one of my favorite heads :).

  11. I have the Catya Catwa head and I find that lots of skins look good on it and there is lots of variety for it.  I also love the animations on this head.    Cons would be the cost and the alpha cuts on the demos.  I just hate that, I want to see the whole face.

    The important thing really is to demo demo demo.

    Interesting point.  I'd figured on twice the budget meaning more flexibility on where I skimped and where I lavished attention.  It was honestly getting the weather system installed that made me rethink how badly I wanted a new linden home.  That would absolutely be not in keeping with the overall theme (a thunderstorm over just one house LOL).  But where I'm at now, there is only ever me and one other person 200m away on the radar.  So there's no neighbors to annoy.

    It does make me wonder about finding an isolated mainland plot somewhere though.  I've never bought or even researched mainland land sales so I'll have to figure out how to even find the thing.

    You did a great job decorating your home.  And I really like the rain.  What weather system are you using? 

    I think for me the issue is now that the plots are bigger and now include a yard there is more area to decorate.  And I am not an expert really in decorating or linking stuff to save prims etc.  I am getting better at it though.  I guess I have champagne taste on a beer prim budget LOL.

    We decorated around her and her furniture since she is the most important to us. Yes, she is a zooby animesh, but she used to be a zooby legacy baby. She is everything to us and decorating was secondary.

    Well you did a great job!    Both you and @RaeLeeH do such a good job of making the houses look lived in with the amount of prims you most likely have left over.
