  1. Land prices ( aside from areas by the seaside arent generally high) its the tier's that are high.... if you think land is too highly priced thats probably someone over ambitious - tier prices are down to linden management and I cant see why they dont have the sense to make changes to the tier systems and payment methods to give SL the boost it needs....
  2. Hi Rod My hope is that you might get together with those of us who like to build using the inworld building system and try and come up with new and interesting ideas which expand on the system we use - providing an alternative for those of us who simply dont want to tackle the 'complexeties ' of meshes and sculpties. Im hoping you might spot the enjoyment in 'inworld' building which doesnt rely on using software outside sl and importing the end producting in via upload... Good luck in your new post.
  3. Hi Rod Good luck in your new post.
  4. NO REASSURANCES ON TIERS FOR ORDINARY SL USERS ........IT TALKS ABOUT PRIVATE REGIONS - SO WHAT ABOUT THE REST OF US ???
  5. Im sure your fees will be diverted from the 'buy philip his first jet' fund
  6. I see what lindens meant by introducing meshes to sl now....theyre ideas with holes in that see customers slipping through well there are plenty of holes in sl's plans....

  8. Incidentally I know that its not lindens fault that they charge VAT even if their efforts to set up any sort of European operation have been basically useless and pointless...but in the UK we have hefty VAT increases due in January - not Lindens prob maybe, but certainly if any tier increase is heaped on this... Basically I think Lindens should be charging all nationalities their own charges in their own currencies - it immediately cancels out and shift in charges due to exchange rate shifts... I cant understand why we in Europe can't be charged at our own rates to take account of 'local '
  9. Well to me sl needs more consumers... I reckon consumers will probably want the basics i.e. land and the tools to build...if they get hooked they'll want more land ..I know because thats what happened to me... I want my money spent on better inworld functions and features. Unfortunately Im not in sl to fund education especially not in the USA (as I see it Im paying my bit for the 'good' of my country via vat paid to lindens....) The obvious way to attract more more paying consumers is to drop tiers and ENCOURAGE land sales... more land sold more tiers... Its not - as they say - rocket sci
  10. The whole issue of tier pricing needs re examining but I suspect nothing good or worthwhile is going to happen because if it was Philip would have been singing it from the roof tops at his inworld meeting several weeks back. Needless to say the matter of pricing and all matters relating to it never arouse....
  11. With all due respect to the non profit/ education sector - but where are all of you when ordinary sl users bemoan heavy tier pricing....??? we never hear a word from any of your groups then....
  12. No linden is not a non profit organisation...and Im sure just as much people dont pay linden labs out of the kindness of their hearts... Its time there was a massive move for better customer care and value for money in SL
  13. Im reading that announcement again and again very carefully it is talking about private regions - which I assume means 'islands' so what is the plan for ordinary land holders ?? I dont like the fact that theres no apparent mention. I hope there arent plans afoot to increase and if there are we are giving more than a weeks notice as we were with the imposition of v.a.t
  14. What about tier charges for ordinary premium users? There doesnt seem to be any commitment to no increase there, although I think most users are looking to an actual decrease and restructuring of tier charges....
  15. This thread is about as relevant to the ordinary builder in sl as ballet lessons are to a rhinoceros... A mass of smug 'smart asses' arguing for high tech building processes that sl will be totally unable to handle and will be of minimal use to a minimum of sl users Despite Jennifur's intriguing arguments the revelation that quality software costs up to 3500 was staggering... Of course anyone like myself who argued for improvement on what we have and what most if not all builders in sl and not just a select few was almost instantly dismissed by people I can only describe for the mos
  16. This thread is about as relevant to the ordinary builder in sl as ballet lessons are to a rhinoceros... a mass of smug smart asses arguing for high tech building processes that sl will be totally unable to handle... despite Jennier's intriguing arguments the revelation that quality software costs up to 3500 was staggering... of course anyone who argued for a system improvement on what we have rather than a ludicrous nass of technical improvements akin to fitting a steam locomotive with an atomic reactor was almost instantly dismissed by people I cna only describe for the most part as
  17. and yet you steadfastly claim how marvellous theyre going to be for sl...and youre not actually making them anywhere ... clever....
  18. So where are you making your meshes ??
  19. Where do you make your meshes then ? In the sl beta world ? Another virtual world ? What mesh software are you using ?
  20. So presumably all these 'mesh experts' I'm hearing from must be in the beta world then....or in another virtual world where they can import meshes ??
  21. Oh your words were 'inspirational' in fact you were one of the very people who led me to my opinion.....
  22. Oh Jennifur I suddenly realised do you have to be one of this select group to try ou making these meshes ??
  23. Thanks for the concise reply I expected from someone who started arguing instead, I imagine he simply couldnt comprehend my point of view like a few others... at least you understand where Im coming from... So if I wanted ago myself without paying cash what would you recommend do you have a link to the software...? Im beginning to think if the likes of some of the people here can manage to make these meshes it might not be so complex after all....
  24. Why is complaining merely your right ??
