  1. The fruiting bodies of fungi are smaller today, but it wasn't always like that. Prototaxites was eight meters tall. Not that I'm really looking for a fantasy house for the realism, but I have to stand up for my giant prehistoric fungi/lichen friends. There are going to be many more things in this area that are far less realistic.
  2. I'd suggest browsing the jobs forum, as it'll give you a feel for some of the things available. Jobs at clubs and roleplay businesses are fairly common. https://community.secondlife.com/forums/forum/312-inworld-employment/ Outside of jobs where people hire you, being a creator and starting a shop is likely to earn more money. If you have any skills in that area or are willing to learn, it's worth a look.
  3. The seasonal thing answers the question of why the demo region is one set of colours and the rest of the birthday has other colours. I could see it causing more rerolling issues if regions were different colours. This way, everyone gets all the colours. I will put my vote towards being connected in a non-fantastical way to everywhere else. I'd like to be able to fly/swim from there and be able to reach the other connected bits without having to teleport. It could still be placed away from the realistic homes if that's wanted, but it could be away and connected to a mainland continent by s
  4. They've not said, but they don't usually go for fixed skies outside of events. They want to show off the night glow, but I'd be really surprised if it wasn't a regular day/night cycle.
  5. I don't think there's a way to send in bulk. They will receive the current version of the item associated with that listing, so make sure you associate the old listing with the new item. Don't list it as a new item.
  6. Permaglow really lives up to the name though.
  7. I see the houses as canvases anyway. They're always going to be fairly plain, because it leaves them open for decorating. More important to me is that the overall theme allows for that to happen. You could make the other home types into fantasy houses with the right extras, but then you'd be reported for being out of theme. Here, we can go to town with fantasy decor.
  8. You never really know what will happen with the shop & hop. The birthday last year was my first shop & hop acceptance. I was rejected for the next one I applied for, then accepted again this birthday. Prior to that, I'd always been rejected. Other events are more reliable for knowing I'll be able to take part. Basically, it doesn't mean you're terrible.
  9. Mainland provides a space for projects that don't fit anywhere else, which isn't a benefit I want to see removed. Whenever this comes up, people start talking about things that many people might agree on, like updating the road builds. It quickly moves on to things an individual person doesn't like, regardless of whether other people do or not. Previous examples include getting rid of fantasy builds, shops are a blight on the landscape and no more general regions. I mention those three because I have a fantasy shop on a general region and I'd be the first to be kicked out under a lot of the ru
  10. I didn't have issues at the exhibits with draw distance at 32m. I've seen a range of stuff so far and I've done about two regions. I've done several hunts, an obstacle course, been in history and geography exhibits, looked at art and got thrown across a region attempting surfing (maybe not the best activity in a tiny space). The gift area didn't work so well this year, because exhibitors couldn't place gifts until after it opened. I'd have liked the gift region sorted out so exhibitors could get that set up along with exhibits. That said, I had no gifts to put there. I did a hunt for my m
  11. Yes, the various things glow. They tend to have bits that glow (like the ends of the leaves, spots on the mushrooms) rather than the whole thing glowing. Full bright was really made for this sort of stuff. If it's actually glowing or a light, it can be full bright! It's more when a brick house and regular green grass is full bright that it doesn't really go.
  12. The way they did the reveal was fun. I'd noticed during the building that they'd covered the region, so we couldn't see it on the map. Then uncovered it again with apparently no changes. It was a general decor region earlier. Then for the reveal, it goes offline, and comes back as the homes demo. So they appeared as if by magic. (Squeaky wants me to stop map spying, but never, it's my hobby.) They do look nice. It's a balance between a home you can easily decorate with flat walls and a fantasy feel. Houses that are round or odd shapes sound great until you try to use them. All round,
  13. It's been very hard for me not to go, "Yay, giant mushrooms!" after seeing the exhibitor regions. But I was good and stayed quiet. The mushrooms, crystals and willow trees are made by moles. The willows can also be set to glow. It suggests a more fantasy swamp feel to go with the willows. The trick is whether it's a red herring or actual items they plan to use for the new theme. Also if you have EEP, look up.
  14. No. You need transfer permissions to sell to other residents. You need both copy and transfer permissions if you want to sell multiple copies to other residents. (This is unrelated to the permissions you set for the next owner... this is about the permissions you need.)
  15. It's pretty clear that most of the complaints are people who play game of homes complaining that others are doing better at game of homes. It's about getting the hot trendy house of the moment, not just getting a house. There are pretty much always houses on the page these days, so it's really not about that. The game doesn't appeal to me at all, but I understand even less why people keep playing when it's no longer fun. At that point, just claim any random house, keep it for a month at least, and stop watching for new releases. Break the cycle of needing to have the newest house.
  16. If you need a vaccine for a summer job, you ideally wanted your first dose a month or so ago so that you'd be getting your second right now. This is the issue with waiting. It takes months to get both doses and for your immune system to do the thing. If you wait until you want to take that trip, get a job or the infection rates rise, you're late at that point. Still get it as soon as possible though, because being a few weeks into the first dose is better than nothing. Note that the things discussed in this thread are hurting arms and fever and the like. Not feeling great is a bit un
  17. Even bigger this year! Though a new person probably doesn't have all the gifts from ten hunts, three birthdays and numerous other events still to unpack. So it'd be faster, hopefully.
  18. The next shop & hop is soon (opens for everyone on the 17th as part of SL18B). You aren't likely to find a full mesh body as a gift, but it'd be a place to get other wearables (each store has to offer a gift).
  19. Donation services initially didn't have a way to block someone from donating, but ended up having to add it. After all, it's free money and who'd want to block that. What hadn't been taken into account was you can leave a message with a donation. For the cheap price of one dollar, stalkers could send messages to their targets to get around blocks on other platforms. Even if messages were removed, sending the donation was a way to remind the target that the stalker was still there. So, blocking was added. That said, I've never needed to block anyone from buying items in Second Life du
  20. It could be transparent on one side or it could be the back face of the rock wall. Either way, the neighbour can't see through it because of the giant rock wall, so the neighbour doesn't have great water views in that direction (which is what a number of responses assumed, but clearly isn't the case). You can't really say that nobody would think the tree screen looks good when this neighbour has chosen that rock wall for their own home. This neighbour does think giant ugly walls look good.
  21. The general region where I have a shop ended up with a public adult area. I went from an open air shop to inside a building, because the reports were ignored. I'm not sure in the end if someone else reported it or the editor who came to check my shop for the destination guide saw it. My reports just didn't go anywhere. All I can suggest is to put up something to block the view and try to get other people to report it. They might have more luck. (The destination guide option is perhaps a bit extreme.)
  22. I'm assuming that you're the sandy beach house and not the grassy waterfall house. If I'm wrong, some of this still applies and some doesn't. I was expecting to see an identical house and a clear view from the neighbour's house from your description, but that's not what the images show. The house looks different to yours and the screen is solid rock on her side. It's ugly, but I wouldn't jump to thinking this is a purposeful attempt to create drama. She may even have thought the tree screen would stop you seeing a waterfall falling from nowhere. I haven't had many giant-screen neighbours
  23. How did you check your land impact? I say that because you said you counted it carefully, but that implies you're checking each object and doing the sums, which is prone to error. A quick way to know is to drag a selection box over all your objects (with "Select Only My Objects" checked).
  24. They might well move the demo region(s) into place after it's started, as that's happened before. So it's not guaranteed to be revealed on the 17th. Just during the birthday sometime.
