    Ever since I got a houseboat, this is kind of how I feel about my beach home. I've decorated it over and over, and am tempted to give it up and just lazily play the clicky click game for a while and see where I wind up next. 

    Be careful as it can be a tad addicting.  I brought an alt out for a month to get one of those campers and discovered that the campers just aren't for me.  I think they are super cute but 175 is just not enough for what I want to do.  So I have been kind of hopping around with my alt to see what comes up for traditional houses.

    the other reason i do not want to leave is the prim allotments . though i loved my older generation cabins i like having  more prims to work with so its a trade off. Not really interested in the campers as they have the lesser prims to use. 

    Can you derender some of the stuff around you for now just to make it look more open?

  3. When I got my first house I was excited and felt lucky to get one.  However as time went on I found it hard to decorate the yard and I was also landlocked and surrounded by houses.  I had this house for quite a while and continually tried to make the landscaping work for me.  Finally I decided to let it go as it got the point where I wasn't even going to my house anymore.  When I let it go, I let it go knowing that it might take me time to get a new one.  And I did get one 2 weeks later.  I have gone thru about 5 houses and now have the house that works best for me.  It's not 100% perfect, but it pretty well checks all the boxes on my list.

    I also agree with @Evangeline Arcadia about being realistic as well.  From what I see it is harder to get a HB than a house.  If you are that unhappy in that location there is nothing wrong with releasing it, just make sure it is really what you want to do and realize you might wait to get another one, or you could luck out and get one right away.

    This is the thing isn't it. It does not go against their policy and they want popular homes. Imagine if no one liked or wanted a new linden home. Imagine no buzz or debate or demand. When I came to get mine I followed exactly what everyone else was doing to get one because I could not get one and it seemed that if it was so bad a new solution would be found to the refresh limit. I see us all on an even level getting a home. 

     

    You haven't done anything wrong there are various threads on how to get a home and the tip you gave is in several of them already.  Everyone is able to do the same thing until LL says different.

    See? Knew there was a reason we all love ya, Skell. There's pretty much nothing you don't know and now I can dive back into my Legacy body and sproing about the place like a kitten chasing butterflies :D

    Same here. It was trying the demo that told me I was in trouble haha. Exquisitely made.

    Only 'flaw' I've discovered was yesterday; when I put the body on, my camera angle becomes messed up - to the point where FS's Camera Controls don't work at all.

    Wasted several hours on wikis trying to figure out what happened and was about to give up when I had to change back into Maitreya - BAM! - the angle was back to normal again.

    No idea what that's all about but beginning to accept that if shiny new techie things are going to go wonky, it'll be with me. Every. Single. Time.

    Make sure you have the updated version.  You can go to the store and get a redelivery if I remember it was a bug and they did fix it.

    I've caught the Quitmann camper twice today - I was going to hold onto it and make an Oasis out of it but unfortunately I notice the neighbour's Halloween decor contains something that is a RL post trauma trigger for me so I have put this back.

    Someone needs to make a hug button.  They really do.

    I decided to buy the body. I am loving it so far, even though there are a few hiccups. I have not been able to get the shoe deformer to work properly so that is a wash. Also, does anyone else notice she seems to have a bit of hammertoe/bunions, lol. I was pleasantly surprised to find I had a lot more clothes in my closet that are made for TMP Legacy than I thought. Some just say Legacy so I was confused, thinking they meant the SL bodies. I also found a couple of my fav designers have recently been making clothes for TMP Legacy. 

    The body is amazing, really it is. One of the best things is that you can get physics for the butt. I am still experimenting with different shapes and skins but overall, I am glad I bit the bullet and bought it. I feel like at this point anyway, I look unique. I did wince at paying 5000L for a body but, I have several heads at that price so not really much of a difference. My avatar is my hobby since I don't do much else in SL.  

     

    I bought it too even after saying I wouldn't.   I run around in barefeet most of the time so I am happy that I can now change the size of my feet.  Is the body 100% prefect?  Nope, but the pros of it far outweigh the cons for me.

    Even the two skin makers I get my skins from have made appliers for this body.  Like you I have several heads I have spent the same amount on, so I figured why not.

    I understand this body is not for everyone, but I certainly love it and I have no regrets buying it.

    Not sure it's available, but:

    http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Lollipop/57/11/27

    - corner of Lollipop is unclaimed.

    It should show up for someone to claim hopefully at some point.  It is odd, some places when they are abandoned get snapped up in seconds and then some take hours to show up.  By the way congrats on getting a HB!

    Just flipped one of my alts to premium to get in the game for a houseboat...

    I'll sit on the camper till the houseboat happens...

    The camper is nice looking, but not something I actually need as I have double prim mainland on a 5 resident sim. The water access though - that's golden. And Bellisseria makes Blake Sea look... dated...

    (and comes without all the giant rotating for sale signs, rental lots, airports, and prim islands... :))

     

    Well good luck I hope you get one.  And good luck to everyone else trying to get a new home today!

    If that's true then yeah. And it'd be poetic justice.

    But I suppose they could abandon, count to 10, then click for a new one. These things seems to go within 1-10 seconds of being abandoned...

    Even a 1 second wait likely knocks one competitor out of the running.

    Jerk move - just trying to think through the logic not justify.

     

    Sometimes when you abandoned a home it can take longer than few minutes for it to go back in the pool.  Some have stood and watched to see who gets their parcel and they wait and wait and wait lol.     When I abandoned my houseboat it took 30 minutes for it to get taken.

    Why I said I wish people would stop releasing so much on a release day if you know one is going to happen release the house early and then wait until some type of warning is given that a release could be happening in which you know there will be.

    People start just releasing an abundant amount of homes and either gets others confused if it is actually a release or not, then if a real release happens you get stuck with maybe a older home you did not really want and really have to be fast on the trigger to release it and get back into the pool for the newly released region before they are gone.

    People are under no obligation to hold on to a home they don't want just because it is release day.     Plus we don't even know if there will even be one.

  13. I use the same setting as you as I like to see things as well.    I don't take pics really so for me I am not too concerned about windlights for pics.  I do like do use some of the day cycles though to walk around and also some of the night ones when I don't want things too bright.

    But windlights don't factor into my decision when I keep a parcel.  I am more concerned about how the view looks when I walk around my parcel, how the landscaping looks and the FPS.
