  1. Or, you can just click the "Sell Land" button on the "General" tab of your "Land" window. I you list a selling price low enough, someone will eventually buy it. I sold my previous parcel that way. I just listed a price about 80% of what similar parcels were selling for, and 10 days later someone bought it.
  2. Say you bid on 20 properties worth 50US$ each. Say you won all 20 auctions. Would you have bought all 20? If that is the situation, what is the problem? You wanted to spend 1000US$ on Second Life virtual land, so if you didn't win all your bids, why wouldn't you have just leave the money in your Second Life account, and kept bidding on other properties until you acquired all the land you wanted? (Though, I have to wonder if you understand that owning that much land would likely cost you hundreds of US$ per month in "land use fees", in addition to your monthly SL fee.) What it's sounding l
  3. Oh, I dunno. I've often found historical "why's" to be useful information, though the uses may only manifest months or years after learning them.
  4. Re "Fake", no, I said "lake". 🙂 Nope, that wasn't a typo. If you don't believe me, go there; you'll find it's a lake, not a fake. Re "8yrs... changes a lot...", yep, appears so, in 2nd Life as in 1st. To bad, the college sounds like a kind of thing that would be very useful. Are there any other entities like it (that teach LSL programming, object construction, etc) still around?
  5. This appear to be a lake. There is no college there. Either it moved (where?) or ceased to exist (why?).
  6. In my neighborhood (in Rancourt, on the main east-west road through central Zindra), most of the driveways don't match the road at all. See the attached photo. The road is black asphalt. But note that in the background you see my neighbor's driveway which is brown with ornate swirls, and in the middle is my driveway which is bright orange-red bricks. Note that while my driveway just barely abuts the gutter, my neighbor's driveway actually covers the gutter. I haven't seen any problems with the driveways getting "returned" though, even though they extend about 2-3 meters into Lindon land. (Note
  7. Yes, I've read that officially that's true. However, in practice, many roadside parcels have driveways over the ditches alongside the roads. The driveways usually don't overlap the road itself, but do extend beyond the property line in order to bridge the ditch that typically lies alongside the roads. In my current neighborhood, most of the houses have driveways that do this. My driveway extends to within about 1cm of the roadway. My next-door neighbor's driveway actually overlaps the roadbed itself by about 10cm. So far, neither my driveway nor my neighbors' have been "confiscated"
  8. Aye, I love it. I just bought a 1024sm parcel on that main east-west road in southern Zindra. It's a quiet residential neighborhood. Not the parcel I was looking at when I started this thread. I kept seeing roadside land at L$25K/1024sm but didn't want to pay US$100 for "virtual" land. Then I found a parcel for $10K, but it still seemed pricey. But then I saw this parcel for just L$5000 and grabbed it. Fate favors the stubborn shopper. 🙂 Next up, install a driveway over the shallow ditch on the edge of the road to easy car & motorcycle access. (A friend just gave me a car; I haven't
  9. (Hmmm. I can't see a way to edit or delete my previous comment, so I'll just add to it.) For those looking to see all objects and prims on a parcel you own, this method also works well: First, install the latest version of Phoenix Firestorm and use that as your viewer. The log-in and go your parcel and stand in the middle. Then click World / Area Search. Customize the search tool by setting "filter" to "This Parcel Only", then click "Apply" and "Refresh". That will give you a break-down of all objects on your parcel.
  10. Hello, Drake 1 Nightfire. Re "you did it anyway?", yes, I sure did. 🙂 I'll reply to something that's 2000 years old (such as The Bible) or 3000 years old (such as The Bhagavad Gita) if I think I have something new to add. Years of yore may be gone, but they're not forgotten. This is the story of J... (wait, wrong song) Re "You think the OP still needs that info?", probably not, but many new residents do, and their searches for info will lead them here (which is how I got here). Re "Area Search", what's that? Wait, let me look in my FS menu... ah, yes, that's cool, thanks for the tip.
  11. Yep, such as, all 4 of your neighbors decide to uncheck the "anyone can visit" box, thus walling you in with ban lines. And since I'm locating in Zindra because I like to fly to locations there, that would be unacceptable to me. Hence, I've been looking at roadside square 1024sm parcels (to avoid Tilia "land use fees" for anything over 1024). The first time I came across "protected", it threw me; but I'm starting to get clued-in that it's SL realtor talk for "has protected land along at least one edge", not that the parcel itself is "protected land". I suppose it stands to reason that rea
  12. Ah, that's probably it, then; the realtors mean "bounded by protected land on at least one edge". Some of these parcels labeled "protected" I've been looking at do have neighbors on 1, 2, or 3 sides, but all have a road on 1 side. It certainly makes accessing one's own land easier. So, that clarifies things. Thanks! I think I will buy that roadside land I was looking at.
  13. I'm considering buying a 1024sm piece of land in Zindra from a reality company, but it's marked "Protected" by the seller. However, that doesn't seem likely. It's privately owned, not Linden-owned. It's marked "For sale to anyone". It has no covenant. It's marked "may be resold, joined, or subdivided". So, how can it be "protected"? Or, is the seller misusing the word "protected"? Or, is something else going on? (I IM'd the seller, but he's off-line. So I figured I'd sound-out the community on meanings of the word "protected" that I may not be aware of.) [Later Addendum: I'm now seeing "p
  14. This is a pretty extreme necro-reply (8 years after the fact), but as of March 2019, there are now new ways to easily find every object on one's land, and exactly how many prims each object uses. Just install the latest version of Phoenix Firestorm, use that as your viewer, log-in, and go to the Region in which your land is located (you don't need to be standing on your land, but you do need to be in its Region). Then click Build / Pathfinding / Region-Objects. That will list every object in that region. Sort by owner. Then, assuming that all of the objects on your land are owned by you, and a
  15. A bit of an old question (from 5 years ago) but since I stumbled into it, I might as well answer. As others pointed out, if you are a non-adult, or if you didn't start your own Second Life account (free or premium) directly from the Second Life website (that is, you're on someone else's account), there may be restrictions on your movements. Speak to the account owner. But if you're an adult and you just started your own account, then there are two ways to get off Starter Island: Complete the tutorial, following all the instructions.
