  1. I feel like the best way to do this would be to program a name generator mashing together fantasy-ish words and placename elements and then combing through it for repeats and copyright violations: Cloud Dell Faemount Mistville Penpixie Mystic Green Bilboton etc. etc.
  2. The trouble is that Bellisseria is now HUGE, and therefore the amount of covenant violations is going to increase accordingly. Not to mention stuff which may not technically be against covenant but is nonetheless annoying eg. full-bright picket fences, media-on-a-prim which can be heard all over the region, animesh strippers on the front lawn etc. I certainly do a lot more derendering than I used to.
  3. One of my alts won a Kups in a giveaway and it's just not her. I chose it over the Kupra because she's always been skinny and flatchested, but even with the sliders turned down it's too curvy on the bottom, and of course none of her clothes fit. It reminded me of when I demoed the Kemono and rejected it for much the same reason. So there may be some experimenting with deformers in her future, but for now she's sticking with the Lucybody.
  4. Other reasons for hanging on to an old Linden home: you only have 512 tier to spare and would rather not live in a camper; you hate gardens; you're addicted to banlines; all your furniture is pre-mesh poseball stuff and you don't want to be mocked by the neighbours... I'd probably go ahead with evicting people theme-by-theme (Tahoe, Elderglen, Shareta Osumai, leaving Meadowbrook for last as it's the biggest) and allowing them a couple of months to claim a replacement on the consolidation continent, before removing the theme from the land page and deleting any unoccupied regions. If you wanted an unclaimed or abandoned home after that point you could file a support ticket requesting it. There might even be a resurgence of community feeling from having consciously chosen to inhabit a heritage space and preserve that part of SL history.
  5. They could get rid of the game and put housing there instead, lol. I tried the game a couple of years back and found all the levels too easy, except for the last one which I gave up on. I didn't see anyone else playing while I was there.
  6. You don't have to fly up to check for skyboxes because the 'Objects' tab in 'About Land' will tell you whether anything has been rezzed on the parcel (in Firestorm, anyway; no idea about the official viewer). So yes, many homes on Bellisseria are unused, just as many of the old Linden homes were unused. I think in some cases people just stop playing SL or switch to an alt and forget they even had premium on that account, let alone where their house was. Or they lose the landmark and can't figure out how to get a new one. Or they have multiple houses and don't have time to decorate them all. People are weird.
  7. Maybe they're dead (like Premium Plus).
  8. Most of my trads and Vics have had homemade paths or driveways extending slightly beyond the boundary line and I would have been extremely surprised if they were ever returned (we have sidewalk textures in the content packs for a reason!). But I also accept that if I encroach on Linden land I do so at my own risk. In short, I use my common sense and trust the Lindens to do likewise. SL has been around for eighteen years; they should be familiar enough by now with frivolous abuse reports motivated by personal grudges to disregard them when they see them.
  9. Roadside parcels should be subject to the same rules as Bellisseria; no banlines and approved orbs only. If you need privacy and don't want to rent, you can move into one of the empty inland regions (it'll be cheaper) or up in the sky, or both. I don't even know why you'd be living on a road if you didn't want randoms dropping in.
  10. Ask the father what he wants you to do. Then, ask him for the money to pay for it.
  11. I used to live round the corner from Swordfish and I don't think I'd have liked it nearly as much if it had been a party zone. Handy for unpacking stuff though.
  12. Since they seem to be waiting until the railways are complete, perhaps a splendid station with vaulted ceilings: I'm not sure there's enough usage of the existing community areas to justify building another one, however. They've always been empty when I visit and the only events I ever see advertised are in the Fairgrounds.
  13. I think this is one of those themes I'll be getting for the content pack, decorating, and abandoning within the month. I fully intend to break out my entire fairy light collection for the limited time I'm there, however.
  14. Your SLURLs don't lead to a mainland location. Are you sure you meant to post in this subforum?
  15. 'Daddy' is a licence to print money. It'd be fiscally irresponsible of them not to offer it.
  16. Oh, the blue Doyle in the first post reminds me of the one I had in Thatch Lea last summer. That wouldn't have passed muster with anyone looking for the perfect location either, but it was facing the water and that was good enough for me. I'm not sorry I gave it up because I did want to try out the newer themes, but I've never felt as settled since.
  17. I tried this about a month ago and ended up with two chalets next door to each other, whereupon I decided to make the best of it and use all the prims to furnish the first house I'd claimed. That was quite fun, but then I decided I wanted something beachy for summer and the alt ended up accidentally landing a houseboat, from which she refuses to budge until she collects her 45-day signup bonus and I kick her off premium. (The main has now picked up a stilt which will do quite nicely for now, once I've derendered the full-bright trees and weird homemade prim fencing next door.)
  18. Quick forum tip: don't run round calling out other posters as alts when you have a flashing neon sign above your head saying 'I AM AN ALT'. You're welcome.
  19. QFT. It's really obvious but it seems to be beyond a lot of people.
  20. I'd argue that they probably should not spend their time and money because there are far better uses for both things than acquiring ALL THE HOUSES, but I realise this is a minority opinion on these forums.
  21. then you just get everyone whining that there are homes available but we're not able to claim them and it's not fair etc. That said, I am kind of jaded right now after catching the same place three times, so I would very much welcome some kind of mechanism which reduced the chance of your getting a home you'd already abandoned within a 24-hour period.
  22. If people ban someone from buying their products just because they don't like them , I assume they're just roleplaying as a business owner rather than, you know, actually trying to make money, and modify my customer service expectations accordingly.
  23. Immersion, I guess? If you want to live in a realistic setting with realistic forms of transport, invisible jetpacks ain't one of them.
  24. Tempted by Chrysanthe Mum... but not £35-worth of tempted. Someone else can have her, and I can have a Primark spree instead.
  25. Not necessarily, no. If you're only paying for Premium to get another Linden Home, your alt will be just fine in its noob guise, since the only time you'll ever need to log it in is to abandon houses and set new ones to group. Most of the stipends are probably getting saved up, cashed out on the main and put towards... new alts! (Of course, the people who have to swank about having enough money to afford ALL THE HOUSES will generally also be compelled to meshify and custom-name ALL THE ALTS, just to prove to everyone that they can. But it's much more efficient to keep all your decor items on a single account.)
