  1. You have to give up your old one first 😀
  2. You're right, but this is what I'm bringing up with this post. The land barons who have tons of cash are bidding on land they know other people want. NOT to actually use it, but to resell it for more. I'm just saying those of us who actually want the land for personal use are out of luck and at a disadvantage. Which is unfortunate, all they're doing is reinforcing the behavior in that case. I have a sim in the Jeogeot Gulf. In order for boats to get out to the gulf, they need to sail through a channel. Recently abandoned parcels in this channel are being bought up and resold by land barons, blocking me in. I've had to buy two parcels just to keep access open.
  3. Will Linden Labs ever regulate land flippers or the big real estate barons who control most of the prime parcels on mainland? I understand there's big money in SL real estate; I get it. But at the same time, I feel like many users are at a disadvantage when it comes to the mainland auctions. For example, there was an auction for a half-sim waterfront parcel in the Jeogeot Gulf, which is highly coveted by those in the SL combat community, because the Jeogeot Gulf is one of the few places on SL that allow for open rezzing, thus open combat. It is home to WW2 Central in Tulagi, and countless little strongholds and military group bases. The person who won it has put it back on the auction block for almost twice the amount they won it for. They're not even using it! Waterfront land in this area in particular, as well as the Blake Sea, is obviously high in demand. So when a parcel like this pops up in the auctions, obviously they're going to attract attention. Unfortunately, those of us who actually want to win and acquire the land in order to use it are at a disadvantage to those who only want to resell it for a higher price. What's the point of even bidding in an auction when you're going up against people who have the Lindens to spare? Especially after the new auction system where you have to have the Lindens in your account before you even bid? You could have people entering into partnerships with comrades and friends just to combine Lindens in order to acquire a coveted parcel, and still get outbid by people who don't even want to use the land themselves. Is there ever going to be a way to level out the playing field?
  4. That is SO strange. Every time I went to look and if it was available, Bellisseria was always the first choice. I just did a catch and release this morning in Sainte.
  5. Seems to have been Sainte Helene yes. It's a completely landlocked sim, so no water. https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sainte Helene/148/80/0
  6. Didn't see any houseboats either. But log out and back in, then try again. That seems to work lol.
  7. Log out and log back in, try again. I just got one in Sainte Helene.
  8. Just saw some traditional homes pop up now on my alt, but got locked out lol
  9. Evard and Guppy released at 10:25 AM SLT it looks like. Congrats to everyone!
  10. I was doing it every half hour actually! But yes I agree with you, I do believe it was luck and chance.
  11. Good evening everyone. I know the recent releases have been unannounced, though its known through Mr. Patch Linden that they are primarily on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday usually between 0900 to 1400 SLT. Any releases outside of these days and times are going to be homes that were recently abandoned. I finally got my home on Friday in Sweetmarsh, and it was completely random, without using the auto refresh. I just happened to check at 0600 with no luck, then again at 0630, which was when I snagged my traditional-style home. I'm not sure if this was the first release that happened outside of the previously announced time frame. But to keep people from going crazy with the refreshes, maybe give my strategy a try, which is checking on the top and bottom of the hour starting at 0600 SLT (if you're up like I was lol), i.e. 0600, 0630, 0700, 0730, 0800, and so on. Do your ten refreshes, then move on. Again there's no exact science, and I probably just got lucky, but you never know! Good luck to everyone.
  12. Today was my first day in Bellisseria, and it was a good day ☺️
  13. AMAZING! You should consider selling it!
  14. I drove by maybe 10 people earlier and not ONE of them stopped me!!
