    Looking for Guy Linden

    a character is a personality. An avatar represents a character. Guy Linden works for LL, and helps a lot of people, so his avatar .... and just guessing here, I hope he doesn't strike me down with lightning lol ..... his avatar is comparable to the character in the movie Powder (1995). He only cares about helping others, with little regard for himself as he sees all of us working together as the best experience
  2. 2350 prims for 2400 a week right on protected ocean water accessing the Blake Sea. No restrictions on use, full land permissions, just over 1 L per prim price. Full service airport within walking distance, and plenty of room to have a nice house, sea planes, boats, or whatever else you can imagine putting there. Rental meter is set up and ready at landing point. I will move it to anywhere you wish, and send a group invite to initiate your tenancy. Contact me with an instant message with any questions http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Tschotcke/31/198/22

  4. if anyone is looking for an affordable Blake Sea access parcel to call home, but the prices are just way too high all the time, now is your time:) I have a 6848 sqm. parcel for rent on protected ocean water 1 sim from the Blake. 9600/wk 2351 prims, 800L discount if you pay monthly, so that's only 9600 a month! That's 2k less than I pay for my own home parcel, and it's nowhere near the Blake! Go take a look, and message me with any questions at all. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Tschotcke/31/198/22
  5. 6848 sqm for rent on protected LL ocean right on the Blake Sea. 2351 prims, 5600 a week down to 9800 a month depending on how how long you pay. It's a sliding scale per week. Lower rent rate incentive for long term tenancy after 6 months. No restriction on use besides excessive security orb range or using ban lines. Contact Trista Banx to set up your rental meter, or if you have any questions. Instant Message is preferred. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Tschotcke/31/197/22
  6. 54,256 sqm / 18,627 prims on Bestone for rent or possibly for sale. Rent is preferred, looking for long term tenant, but will sell if necessary. Great location for an airport with a harbor, or anything else you wish. Access to 8 fully protected water sims via the NW corner. Unlimited use, no restrictions, full land group permissions (other than owner role), low price for both rental and sale option. I originally bought it as abandoned land in auction, so I would sell it for a lot less than it's fair market value. Rent will be cheap too for the size, location, and prims at 48k L per month (that's calendar month, not 28 day periods / due on the 23rd or before). Location link below will land you on a platform to see the current build, which will be removed on or before July 23rd, depending on when you want to take over the land. 1st month payment or full sale price will be due at time of occupancy, or July 23rd at the latest. The view in the picture is looking SW. Visit the sim and explore ..... and I will not abandon the land if anyone thinks they can wait for that. I will give it away to one of a select few people for free before I abandon it. If you want it cheap, speak up in the next couple of weeks Contact Trista Banx with Instant Message in world, or Notecard if that's you're preference. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Bestone/151/58/88

    Connect the Continents

    nobody is asking for anything for free. We are paying customers. If someone in this discussion has a basic membership and does not own or rent any land, then yes you could make a case against them posting an opinion here.... but they will benefit as well. This is about a grid enhancement that will benefit everyone that uses SL. It's not about a fan group for the groups personal use. I know some of the people that are involved in this discussion, and they have spent way more than I have to have a legitimate seat at this table of opinion. We've payed for plenty. We are, to some degree, share holders in SL that are asking the board of directors for a positive change. Nothing is free. LL makes in excess of 70 million a year from SL. They can afford to connect the continents if they want to. Our goal is simply to convince them that it's a good idea for all parties concerned.

    Connect the Continents

    Our first tangible proposal with a visual map example . Critically speaking though, it's not very sailing friendly. I would suggest trying to connect to the Euxoa region, after routing north of the Torley and Here regions, and then heading south before a west turn to meet with Euxoa. If LL is going to use this many sims to build a channel, the path of least resistance is worth using a dozen more or so. Like you said though, plenty of possibilities !

    LOL ... nice twist at the end ... I like.

    Not sure who you're agreeing with, but I think LL maintaining a channel of Open Space sims serving as protected water regions is the best option. I think renting them all out would be very difficult, time consuming to accomplish, and harder to maintain given that tier payments mean people have to keep paying the tier on every sim in the channel. What if someone stops paying? Is the channel blocked indefinitely ? What if they rent that sim so a sub tenant that blocks everyone with a security orb? ...... the channels themselves can't be owned / payed for / rented by multiple people or groups ..... it just opens up a big can of worms that nobody wants to complain about later.

    verb: circumnavigate; 3rd person present: circumnavigates; past tense: circumnavigated; past participle: circumnavigated; gerund or present participle: circumnavigating sail or travel all the way around (something, especially the world). go around or avoid (an obstacle). "he helped her to circumnavigate a frozen puddle" avoid dealing with (something difficult or unpleasant). "they circumnavigated the issue" So which are you suggesting? That we try to sail or travel all around SL, or that we should try to avoid SL ? Maybe you're trying to circumnavigate the goal of the forum LOL

    1. Unless you work for LL with access to privileged information, how do know what maintenance costs on what ? 2. Nobody is playing an entitlement card. I've invested 1000's of dollars into SL to reach the success level I currently have, which is humble compared to other members of this discussion. 3. If you read every post in this forum you would see the possible benefits for LL, which have been suggested by myself and others. 4. You speak as if this is my idea alone, which it is not. It's an idea I share with many others, and have for a long time supported. If you don't support the idea, then I wonder why you're a part of the conversation to begin with. If you think it's a bad idea, just ignore the forum. It won't personally affect you either way

    OK...... more importantly than a reply to this post is the important function or the goal of this forum ..... to put it simply, the people that post ideas about teleport ideas to get from point A to B in a more creative way than just teleporting are defeating the purpose of connecting the continents and are genuinely or accidentally missing the point. Posting about clever ways to teleport from A to B is about the equivalent of people pushing the flat earth idea in RL. It's not productive, and serves no purpose. This is about long, time consuming channel(s) to the other unconnected continents on the grid for the purpose of spending time traveling as well as other undiscovered or explored advantages. Not sure how much more simply i can say that ..... so teleport ideas have nothing to to with the task at hand here. This isn't Start Trek ... we're trying to improve the grid with real sim channels for better travel experiences and a lot more for grid wide realistic enthusiasts.

    @animats .... well the idea you have is clever, but the point of the long channels is to enhance the travel experience for sailors, aviation enthusiasts, and to stimulate land ownership on other continents because of greater connectivity "without" teleporting.

    The shorter routes can be easily used since private sims in the way can be easily relocated without substantial consequence to the sim owners, which they really don't own. LL does and can allocate priority to a project like this, for the benefit of many more users than a few sim owners. On your 2nd point, OS sims 'are' individual sims. If you mean homesteads or private regions, the difference is that they can run many more OS sims on a single server than the other 2 types of sims, and server cost and maintenance would be a consideration for LL. The less servers needed to host the channels, the cheaper it will be for LL to maintain them. As for the ban lines and private estates, that's where LL could circumvent them with a bend in the road. If they decide to use 80 to 100 sims to build a channel, then redirecting the channel with a few extra shouldn't be a big issue for them
