  1. Oh the Valleyside Pool is nice, it has gardens on either side, and the back is terraced with cafe tables above a rocky cliffside leading to a river/inlet.
  2. Lol, the one on Holliday was mine - it was a script error in the mailbox that removed my house so I camped while it was resolved. All fixed!

  4. If she ever reads this: Get some more mesh tutorials in and come back! You had such a lovely imagination and ideas! Come back!
  5. I'm loving the cute traditional style homes, but I'm also hoping the new area will have some modern ones as I could see myself moving back and forth between them when wanting a certain look for a while. I hope my excitement over my new home arrangement lasts and isn't just a manic reaction to living off the platform for the first time in years.🤣
  6. @Patch Linden This is exactly why we need areas like this. This is making people who might be more inclusive to start interacting with others in a way we would in real life. It's more interactive. We're exploring our own living area, we're talking to people outside of our own insular network, without the craziness of hubs, or feeling uncomfortable in a roleplaying community when new, or small talk at a club. You can break down a small social wall here easier. I stopped to watch some people RP a "Cops" type show complete with police chase, a talking horse officer, and camera crew. Ended up giving a statement to the officers. I don't rp inworld, I don't have time for extensive immersion into an RP sim, etc, but I can rp a little here and it's more natural and realistic and fun without some huge backstory. I'm just me, at home, or on my bike, and saw some stuff. Simple. I don't have to be involved, but if inspired I could be, and then I am on my way again. Creating more interactive areas would be a benefit I think for retention. Also, omg please restrict sounds to the parcel, I don't have anything making noise on mine currently but gonna toggle that when I get in tonight as a courtesy in case I install something annoying, or decide that my Harlem Shake gestures are amusing again.
  7. It would be nice, especially if there could be a proper long autumn, and a mini winter (Dec - mid Jan). But like @Chic Aeon said, it would need to be a lot of scripted landscaping and that all leads to lag. Swapping out terrain textures would be easy, a pain maybe, but whatever. The landscaping could all be sim wide hud controlled for the moles, but again lag. I would be all for it, especially a long progressive autumn with mini winter. There are plenty of inworld creators that make some lovely fall textures that they could be inspired by. But then you also have the issue with not everyone wants that or even wants to swap out their own landscaping to be on board, so you are going to end up with a wintery sim and cherry trees in bloom and palms.
  8. @Zoya McDonnagh - Yes, exactly a little pier area with a carnival, and one inland too!
  9. I would like to see a city center with a small town feel to include: cafes bakery grocers farmers market ice cream shop candy shop record shop karaoke bar internet cafe ballet studio yoga studio gym skate park basketball small softball field small rugby field city center park with a bandstand gas station/car rez bike rental/rez putt putt There are a million things they could include, but make it a fun, pretty, interactive space for people to meet, hang out, rp, photograph. A wider boardwalk with beaches and ocean on the coasts would be nice. I would like to be able to have timed rezzing at parks, so I can pull out a bbq, picnic blankets, games for an hour or so. Even if I have to join a special group for premium residents this would be a nice feature. **Most importantly, to have some moles do a walkthrough of each region and see where they can spruce up a bit more. Some regions have more plants, walls, rocks, etc that others do. I'm not asking for cookie cutter uniformity but more attention given to each area. Some areas on the east coast, have walls/fences on the front of properties that the resident didn't have to put out and take up their parcel LI. Also on the east coast, I noticed some even have different plants and even topiaries on steps leading to houses. Southwest beachy regions have a nice amount of rocks, trees, and grasses, but to the northwest the same beachy sims have a bit less. Many of the inner regions hardly have any additional touches, a few are prettily heavily treed or the trees seem larger giving it a different feel, but some regions just our house and trees. The park across from my house overlooks the ocean, it would be a place where people would gather to watch sunsets in RL. Why not add more than one bench. Other pools have gardens and terraced areas with cafe tables, I think my park could have some more benches...and bushes. Double check that region border terrains match up. For some reason my parcel which backs up to another region and they both have the same terrain but there a sandy line right on the parcel/region edge. They're the same elevation, so not sure what the issue is, but I'm considering a support ticket, but want to confirm the same glitch with a few friends first.
  10. Lies and propaganda from down under, I say! So in theory, ya'll are having fall colored easter candy? you trolling me bro?
  11. LOL Welcome to Second Life, I remember my new resident days as being greifed quite often. A few tips: 1. Find a "safe' sandbox to do your building, and unboxing etc until you find a place to live where you can hang out in peace. Some sandboxes provide a monitor that will remove people who are being disruptive. Some sandboxes have a special group so only those in the group can rez objects on the land, or run scripts. 2. Be aware of land settings, At the top of your screen are icons that let you know what can and can't happen on a parcel. Rezing objects, running scripts, flying. 3. If being griefed you have the ability to teleport away. It's intrusive to what you were doing, yes, but that is an option. Sitting on an object can help keep someone using a scripted item from moving you. (if they don't own, or have rights to mod/move the item. I've found over time, I am greifed less and less. Cheer up, back in the day, we used to get 'orbited' and that would set you up over 18,000 meters in the air.
  12. In the northern hemisphere we tend to see pastels featured in the spring lines of clothes, whites and brights in the summer, rich foliage matching tones in the fall, and dark, somber colors, but sometimes playful jewel tones in the winter. But I have always wondered, does this run the same in the southern hemisphere? Is it a cultural ideal? When we live in a global community and are exposed to media from around the world, does that influence out of seasonal color palettes? How does your culture express the seasons in fashion? For those in the southern hemisphere do you feel color influenced by the northern hemisphere seasons in real life?
  13. Yes, the amazing boots designers make, the cozy acessories, like scarves, it's all so alluring, can't help but get you into the seasonal swing. Oh and locations, like Tempura.
  14. Today I was featured on the Fresh Fashion event Second Life Community Blogs with a post on Spring Fashion. What's your favorite season inworld. Do you follow the season inworld by dressing to suit? I love autumn and winter inworld, my real life is based in tropical Florida, so I really miss these seasons, and take advantage of them inworld. I also like a more northernly spring and summer as well.
