  1. Family communities have a lot of fun activities going on. October to December is especially enjoyable in those neighborhoods with all the holiday events. I used to rent a house every October just so I could go trick or treating and often stayed through Christmas. Much cozier than living in the sky alone lol
  2. I once had a wonderful family in SL. I left due to my desire to engage in solitary activities but will always cherish my experiences with them. Many years later I tried to find a new family, but had several bad experiences. I do envy those who are able to make deep connections in SL but I know that due to my reclusive nature I'd never be able to maintain long term family bonds. I have a vivid imagination and really enjoy roleplaying my own family members. I sometimes alternate between various ages. I also have many prim and animesh babies, and have even used alts as bots (both animal and human). What I did was had them wear a hud that gives needs like Cherubs Care, Life hud, etc. so I could take care of them.
  3. Thank you for sharing this! I have such fond memories of my first months in SL. What I'd do to relive that experience all over again!
  4. I'm very introverted. I live in the sky and spend all my time in SL engaged in solo pursuits.
  5. I love hearing other people's perspectives, thank you! Sometimes my mind gets stuck in a certain way of thinking and needs help to think outside it's little box lol. Everything you said makes perfect sense, and has shifted my views in a much more enjoyable direction. Going back to my mindless, grateful fishing now:):)
  6. If alts were not allowed but people still used them to fish, it would be unfair to people who use just their main to fish for this reason: Most landowners will put around 2k into their buoy during multipliers. This enables around 140 people to fish (14L per person) If each person were to use 4 alts to fish, only 35 people would be able to fish at the buoy (56L per 4 alts) So in effect, 100+ people would not be able to fish due to the use of alts. Those 100 people would then have to fish 9 buoys (four and a half hours of fishing) to earn the equivalent of what those using alts made in just 30 minutes at that one buoy.
  7. I am not triggered by alts lol I have alts myself. Now that I know most landowners don't care if people use alts while fishing it totally changes my point of view, since it is quite foolish for someone like me to fish with only one avatar if it is allowed to fish with more than one, since someone who fishes using four avatars simultaneously will be making 56L per buoy instead of 14L.
  8. Thank you for sharing your own experiences! That is something I wondered about for ages. I always feel really guilty fishing because I didn't understand what the landowner was receiving from it, I am definitely going to start tipping then, as I fish so often and don't feel right about taking people's money without giving anything in return. Especially knowing some just do it for the company - my goodness! That makes me feel even worse lol. I will definitely try to be more friendly when I'm fishing now, knowing that. At least contribute in a small way even if I can't afford to tip huge amounts.
  9. Thank you so much for taking the time to respond and answer my gazillion questions!:) This helps to clarify a lot for me, I will go back to enjoying my fishing and feeling incredibly grateful to landowners for the lindens and lovely surroundings. I appreciate this group so much! ♥
  10. What do landowners get from the increased traffic? I always wondered this because a lot of them are shelling out a ton of money into their fishing buoys to get traffic, and it would seem like they are losing money every day from having fishing on their land
  11. For some reason I have always been under the impression that it was not okay to use alts in fishing games. I think this may have been a misunderstanding. I really wish I knew this earlier because it took me 35 hours of fishing to save up for a tiny avatar recently, and had I fished with four avatars it would have only taken me 8 hours lol
  12. In looking at the terms of service for various fishing games, there does not appear to be any rule against using alts while fishing (except for Alienum which has auto ban in place as I state earlier). It seems like this would mean that one may fish with alts on any land that does not specifically state that you can't use them, since the game TOS does not mention anything about alts. Does anyone know if this is true or not?
  13. Do you think most landowners are of that mindset, they don't really care if people use alts when fishing? I'm now beginning to question whether it is even against the rules to use them or not - I am trying to look into this for each specific game now
  14. I'm not angry, I just saw a huge sign on someone's sim that said "NO ALTS" etc. and wondered if I should be reporting or not. I thought the landowner would want to know since they are the one who put up the sign but I won't worry about it anymore lol. Had I not seen that sign I would have assumed landowners are grateful for the traffic and don't care if half of the traffic consists of alts
  15. I'm also talking about alts that are very obvious from their names. Like one will be "benjavi", second is "benjava", third is "benjave" lol
  16. The landowner only has a certain amount of lindens to spend each day on the buoys though, so for example they might put in 400L, and if one person is using four alts they will drain that buoy very quickly, which means people like myself who are only using one avatar to fish with will not even get to fish at all.
  17. One of the games I play has set it up so that when you try to withdraw from the ATM, it directs you to a website which then uses your IP address to determine whether you are an alt of someone else and then automatically bans you if your IP address has already been used by another avatar. I wonder how difficult it would be to implement this as a game creator. Seems like it would prevent the alt issue.
  18. I spend a lot of time playing fishing games in SL. I have become very good at determining which people are using multiple alts while fishing. The people who are using alts while fishing are getting triple or quadruple the lindens the rest of us are getting, which leaves less lindens for those of us playing fairly. Is there any way to prevent alts from fishing simultaneously? Should I contact a landowner when it is obvious who is using alts?
  19. I'm afraid to find out how much I've spent over the years. I have a major spending problem and literally blew all my life savings in SL. Now I have to fish all day to earn lindens for anything I want in game. A difficult but necessary lesson in self control & patience.
  20. None of the names I wanted were available so I just made one up quickly. Definitely wish I had taken the time to do some research on a better name though
  21. It was peanut butter cups but I recently ate some and had horrible blood sugar issues so no more candy for me:-( wahh
  22. I only log on to play interactive systems. Without farming, crafting, cooking, etc. I would be bored out of my mind in SL. I do enjoy exploring as well, but usually with a purpose, like hunts or shopping.
  23. Thank you so much for your help! I do often switch my graphics preferences from low to medium to take a quick photo, I think that is what has been causing this problem. I am going to uninstall and do a clean install, as I have recently reinstalled over the existing install (when prompted to by the SL Viewer) so that could be causing issues as well. I appreciate your taking the time to respond to my post!
  24. I keep having this strange problem where the color picker in SL Viewer become black. For example, if I try to create a box the only color option is black. The chat becomes black as well so I can't see what I am typing. This happens every single day, but relogging fixes the issue. Does anyone know what the problem may be and if there is a permanent fix for it? I'm using the newest SL viewer, my pc specs are: CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770S CPU @ 3.10GHz (3092.84 MHz) Memory: 12228 MB OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 64-bit (Build 18362.356) Graphics Card Vendor: NVIDIA Corporation Graphics Card: GeForce GTX 760 (192-bit)/PCIe/SSE2 Windows Graphics Driver Version: OpenGL Version: 4.6.0 NVIDIA 416.34
