  1. I like these suggestions. The underwater abodes would also work for Chicky Delicioso's suggestion for underwater Mermaid homes. I also like Sean Heavy's idea of having areas set aside for small 'Mom & Pop' shops, although my more focused ask would be for places where folks who operate nonprofit 'community organizations'* could settle without having to worry about what might be happening to their neighborhood. Right now, for example, my main alt has a tiny hobby 'business' that is on a parcel of Mainland that is as big as her/our budget can afford. The neighbors, so far, have been grea
  2. I'm wondering how much of the Mainland here will be accessible by boat from Belli? Some of what looks like open water is currently private land with some underwater structures. Is there a way through? Also - the dark island that contains that Pyri Fun Fair has been chopped off on the west side for some time - I remember the Fun Fair quest* as one of my first adventures in Second Life and hope that it won't be replaced by more housing or some more 'advanced' entertainment. *Take a ride on the Tunnel of Love
  3. My two cents: - Sky domes should not be visible from the ground within normal draw distance - Privacy walls? Well, the good thing about them is that they help you form an opinion about the residents who erect them. - How about ban lines only above 4000 feet? - I do like the pod tours, though. - I would like to see right-of-ways restored for roads and rails, rivers and shorelines. There are too many places where former routes are now closed - for example, the road through The Great Wall (last time I looked) and the land owners who built in water near the shorelines so
  4. My apologies if I was one of the ones who set off your security system. When I was test-driving the horse I forgot to set up "see property lines". That was the only time I ever got a warning message, and it was very polite - as I rode away it said "thank you for leaving".
  5. Aley Mart has a wearable Hobo bicycle that can be modified. Free on Marketplace or at the Museum in Mieville. There are also two off-the-rack avatars that come with horses. (You can adapt the clothing of the human part if you don't want to look as if you just came out of the 'new avatar' chute.
  6. This looked familiar, so I looked through my archives, and the building appears to be a reproduction of the Spangle Railroad Station http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Spangle/137/230/31 built by Garden Mole. The original does not have camels, but I believe there is a dead parrot in the area somewhere. Could the Moles be planning a Railroad History exhibit?
  7. I don't have a skybox in Belli, but I do have a sky platform I use to change clothes and open boxes. On Mainland, I have a small parcel where most of my prims are in skyboxes to help preserve the look of the landscape, and because I've been told that building higher helps reduce lag. Sidenote: I was putting up another skybox on my Mainland bit yesterday and I was having a hard time finding an altitude where I couldn't see one of the neighbors' skyboxes. Had to move it three times.
  8. I went to look, and I couldn't find a giant squid. There wasn't one in the region called "Giant Squid" either. I would like there to be a giant squid somewhere.
  9. I'm sorry you feel that way. I'm just speaking for myself, but even if you decide to downgrade to basic membership, you are still welcome to visit our community and participate in events. I realize it is very frustrating to be stuck in a position where you are, essentially, homeless. Perhaps you could find a temporary rental while you wait? Please let me know if there is any way I can help.
  10. Some of the Mainland Snow Regions have different winter sports areas with ski lifts, lodges, and winter sports - how about a resident village in the middle of snow-covered mountains with something similar? Instead of The Pickle we could have The Icicle.
  11. Yup - I periodically try to learn Blender. Immediately afterwards they decide to do an update of the program. A course on Blender I bought at Udemy is in the process of going from one version to another, so some classes are taught in the current version, and some in another. I will keep trying, though.
  12. I think this is a good idea. I have more than one alt, and I don't sign every one of them up for the same groups for many reasons, thus it often happens that I am 'wearing the wrong alt' when group announcements are made. Yes, there is Google Calendar, but that presupposes I am organized -- also some of my groups don't schedule things far in advance. I've recently spent several hours trying to be a 'helper' at events and at a newbie welcome center, and I'm finding that there are a large number of volunteers putting long hours into helping newcomers, but there doesn't seem to be any over-a
  13. http://thesecondlifetourist.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2019-03-31T23:06:00-07:00&max-results=7 - my article from, I think, November 2016 on hunting for Linden Bears. There is also a Wiki page showing known Linden bears, although it is not updated. I also have a notecard with information about hunting Linden bears in my Tourist Information Center. And while I'm tooting my own horn I would like to note that I have added "LDPW Mole Fan Club T-shirt " dispensers to my "Art Gallery" in Echo Cove (look for the water dragon).
  14. Thank you very much. I've made this into a notecard for my own use as Greeter, and I sent a copy to one of the boss greeters to see if this could be available to all the greeters. If I do the greeter thing next year (God willing) I will try to get this (and other things) done sooner. The offshore shopping area seems to be very popular, but the few times I've been there the lag has been a bit daunting.
