On Mainland & Fences & Rusty Toilets in Second Life

One thing you have to say for winter is that it can be stunningly beautiful. I went back to Tatty Soup↑ to see how snow had affected the sim and it’s gorgeous!

I told you the other day that I had bought some land – it’s on the mainland, which involves some peculiarities that aren’t present on islands.

My primary reason for choosing the location was, of course, money. I can remember years ago owning almost a full sim on a continent and, at the time, the land was selling for L$10 sq m. It is still pricey in some areas, but we found large parcels for 40 and even 10 cents a sq m. You can find lots of abandoned land for L$1/sq m.

One of the downsides is that you can’t winterize as easily – the ground texture is fixed. But we can deal with that.

One of the first things I did was build a fence, with the same tools used to create the one you see in the above image. Alex Bader’s mesh fence kit↑ is fabulous! I had a lot of fun. :)

Of course what I should have had is a net. For the first couple of days the horses were so glad to be out of my inventory they spent all their time flying around and exploring other sims. They seem to have settled down. I hope.

This isn’t a shopping blog, but since I’ve already mentioned the fence I’ll point out a bit of colour on Tatty Soup↑. This rusted toilet would be perfect next to my old shack, maybe a weak moment will occur and it will find its way to our place.

In the meantime, I’ll just point out the obvious. Autumn is giving way and some of your favourite sims are feeling the effects. You should check them out!

  2. Fabulous pictures, as always, Honour. Thanks for inspiring my post for the day! http://poultryreport.blogspot.com/2012/11/what-difference-day-makes.html

  3. For the ground you can use LandMap ( https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/LandMap-Change-your-ground-texture-without-land-powers/236734 ). It’s a great tool, works very well and is easy to use. LandMap was used to texture the ground of Brooks Forest ( http://bit.ly/UPjDoy )

  4. Very nice!
    Love winter but not looking forward to bringing it to 1920s Berlin.
    Manually changing all street and roof textures to snow… and not being able to use a nice weather system because they always snow into the houses :(
