  1. Try viewer 1.23 that runs on many of my 8 year old notebooks and even on my 10 year old PC speed isnt everthing they will be working on a low graphic viewer option trust me LL actually ran a beta of some sort of web java or flash to load the world but I dont know how that went because only USA could try it somthing to that affect anyway.
  2. Where you have plenty of ocean Sims all packed together owned by GOV linden you will find bots they are simply using the fastest and lag free ocean sims for faster data transfer the fastest bot wins whatever they are scanning or tping to buy or traffic the resources of these empty water sims must act as hyper data transfer point alot of landbots hover over ocean sims while scanning and teleporting back to the fastest data sim and they can sit their hassle and rent free just dont stand there talking to software programs lol.
  3. So you want to ask if the land can be set to you. Any channel should do it region issues ect im sure that your ticket will be forwarded to the correct linden if your options are limited just fire some tickets off under what you can sure they will get looked at.
  4. Arrg dont get me started on this banline stupidity yep i agree you should have a option to see them from atleast half a sim away toggled opt in option on viewer. They are not banlines they are just a mess of TEXT upon TEXT a banline should look like ______________ Well a line Also the parcel owner / owners or Groups that has opted to use a banline on their parcel should also see the banline while the little lost man on his 512 is penned in like a sardine by TEXT TEXT TEXT
  5. Hope you get to the bottom of it been here around 6 years and only ever had a problem with inventory in a laggy sim and my connection router sometimes needs a simple reset then things like loading, rezzing no copy items then findin the lag made a copy of the item lol only ever lost 1 item may have flew off world. Ive noticed High Speed connections do not perform any better than slower connections I find my 6mb max plenty its a red herring isps offer over 20Mb how many servers will let you dowload a file at that speed not many. 2mb is plenty sufficient for the web unless your running into private company file transfer servers all day long. Try lowering your bandwith in SL prefrences may work but like you say the glitch mabe the way your routed into the asset server LL side.
  6. You will see more squatters on your land in a year or two as this new abbandoned land system kicks in as auto return seems to be set to 5mins or so unlike the old abboandoned setting of zero so yes instead of using these plots they will find a space that has no auto return set its common sence to utaiize space in secondlife to ones advantage but i agree its not ideal having squatters not paying you a bean but its rather harmless setting your land settings correctly will sort them out group only rez ect but they like to build on another parcel and drag to the land with auto return not set. Meanwhile a few years ago on my reallife street we had a bunch of day squatters move in and used peoples gardens while they where at work sunbathing on lawns and so on harmless better than burglers lol.
  7. Hi if you are new to buying a region with a plan of renting out the land i would strongly advise to buy MAINLAND from another user no setup fee just one cheaper price to pay depending on your budget and as others have pointed out the teir costs are way cheaper so in affect you can charge LESS for your rental spaces compared to private sims where you will have to nearly double your rents to stand any chance of getting any return on your investment over the months ahead. Plus now this is the key factor you can SELL your MAINLAND at any time if things go pearshaped (dont work out) and you can even resell parts of the sim instead of messing around trying to sell a private full sim if you search for a full mainland sim you will see plenty pop up for sale every few days and just keep a eye out for a good deal the less you can pay the better dont rush in let the WOW factor settle maths and a bit of homework goes along way in SL. Its actually getting renters thats the hard part but you will get them with a bit of diffrent tactics until you find the best way. Have fun trying to get your ideas off the ground look at it as a long term plan just dont pay over the odds until you know you can fill a sim then go for private. Good luck.
  8. If this lends itself to the Long awaited plan (blogged 2-3 years ago.about bots) working on search with a result to excluded Landbots from Swooping in on users mistakes in transfering land from groups for 1LS and hammering search by the millisecond then you have the thumbs up to tear down the 1.23 search land function if a software program cannot be modded to use the search code and be programed to BUY land at a set price. I know people use bots to list their Land and cut but its the BUY Lanbot that needs to be rendered obsolite. If this is the case them maybe humans will once again make SL the great place it is instead of using the platform for a software money grabbing exercise.
  9. As others have already said yep you can send in a ticket if you own surrounding land around the parcel atleast 2 sides of the parcel I think. Problem is the New V2 does not filter out these lands set to Specific persons. Still not fixed? Now in viewer 1.23 its filtered so you never see these plots of land set to specific persons listed in search results UNLESS the parcel is set to your name only then you will see it in 1.23. So if you wish to search for abandoned land set to ANYONE and filter out all others set to specific just download viewer 1.23 and you be supprized how easy it is to actually find Abandoned land to buy and ANY other land you wish to search for its all there in one simple list and when you visit a parcel you can load the list again with one simple click if any new user needs to search for land especilly MAINLAND get viewer 1.23 downloaded its the work horse of sl and has driven landsales for years its so simple to find land with.
  10. Yes they are going against all the so called hard work of cleaning up mainland I was looking at part water lastnight abandoned cut to peices for sale was pondering on buying it all and rejoining but guess what someone had already bought one of the 16sm so that thought went out of the window. LL carnt take the easy way out they need a Human to rejoin and set for sale if they actually spent time inworld doing exactly what hundreds of us are doing everyday via land selling they may actually start to understand their own platform. On a lighter note they do allow Ars against Governer Linden So until Gov Linden gets a AR the GOV will continue selling micro parcels on mass which is against the TOS. The worst micro parcel sim ive ever seen was a FULL sim on mainland cut fully and totally into 16sm plots for sale before they days of micro parcel RULES hope they dont start selling one of them with their dumb software Bot.
  11. Blondin Would adding a date stamp to the abbandoned land title be possible on your new system I have been looking at around 200 parcels but its getting really hard to see whats new on the list unless we spend hours with pen and paper writing sim names n sizes we endup revisiting the same parcels. Dont know if this idea would work good but something like (Abbandoned Land 07/05/2011 just something to help filter what we have already seen date is the only thing I can think of as a visual effect that the eye can filter results at the moment..
  12. If you wish to sell mainland quick (within hours) only way now is like you have said drop it around 0.5 - 1.0 and wait for a trader to find it or lower for a bot , people using 1.23 will see it in search BUT users using V2 carnt find land via search anymore well they could but chances are they would give up looking after first page of results due to the annoying resetting of search critirea. Contact a land trader or play the waiting game and get a better price from a user in your sim who will buy it sometime but if you dont want to pay next months teir just dump it and cut your losses. You will find another deal plenty around at the moment good luck. Bots have done this crash.
  13. Yes it needs someone to manage the new system and check current prices its no good at all to list every parcel at the same price its just like the bot runners do auto listing all at 1 price but dont forget you get a better picture using 1.23 in V2 you have no chance of tracking the market compared to 1.23 emagin trying to visit every abandoned land on search with V2 that dosent remember your search criteria its a dam pain. The bots will still be operating even if it goes to 0.1 right down till the last drop. I see some are now more focused on adult where prices are steady and they can gain much from a 1LS per meter abandon drop. Its a bit of a mess to say the least on one hand LL want the abandoned land back in teir but on the other hand LL will still be holding onto unteired land waiting to be bought and more so as it collects. Fast Thought Conclusion = Automated Programs should not buy or set prices Bots of any kind cannot run a virtual land mass Humans can make better judgments on how to price the land, eg Hows the return on the bottom market looking if no good next is, Any neighbours (who may buy and check if their running out of prims via about land) how long has it been listed before you buy to resell, is it cut right to adjoin to other parcels around if bought, and many more things need to be checked before setting a price no wonder everything now looks like a massive jigsaw with the peices missing. If LL want to heal the mainland they need to consult with users that spend all day selling the stuff and present at their keyboards. Think I will sit this one out this summer I aint risking Ls on this 1.0 0.8 0.5 0.4 per meter would 0.5 even cover teir ?? your ground rent (teir) is more than the full price of a plot of land with a house.
  14. This is a great move auto setting it to anyone but I agree with chaos the bots will cleanup but that could be sorted by raising the price to atleast 2Ls per meter above current market at rate at any given time giving REAL people a fair chance of buying a parcel but then again this price would always have to be higher than daily bottom end value while bots are running the show as they can also buy everthing up to that 2Ls per meter threshold in seconds suppose it needs to auto set above current prices per parcel basis when abandoned But i see you stated (price Subject to change) So i hope you raise it well above the BOTS search criteria and try to tweak it so indavidual parcels will have diffrent LS per meter. Its a tricky one unless the outcome is to hope the bots raise the market as you raise the abandoned ?
  15. Well if you seem to be getting a fair amount of foot traffic your half way there like other have said depending on your Sim theme, rental spaces (even wall space rentals vendor type) Sky box rental (min 1 day cheap priced) mini shop spaces in each corner of Simi get them walking around a bit. A few games machines 10 would even do it. Basically you have to collect all the aspects of SL that users have come into contact with to increase possible spending habits and therefore providing different kinds of entertainment that will appeal to different users. Although shopping inworld has been blown out of the water by the web marketplace you may still find a decent inworld shop will do well just run with some ideas and build on that if it doesn't work just keep plugging away until you find one that does. Go on a rekkie in SL with each idea and see how others are using that idea and see if their is room for improvement. That's the fun part of setting up a profitable Sim good luck.
