Day 103 - Baby, we done moved on in!

So the big news today? The Linden homes registration is open! If you're a premium account holder and you have 512m of tier free [all premium members have it if they have not purchased mainland], you can sign up!

I actually had purchased a 512 a few months ago just to have it. So today I decided to get rid of it. I'm not hurting for money right now and had paid next to nothing for it, so I slapped a price of $500L on it and put it up for sale. Within SECONDS I was surrounded by landbots.


I got scared and ran. LOL

But with my 512m now free, I went to check out some of the areas where I could have my Linden home.

Elderglen is very whimsical, with fairies and big mushrooms and all of that. It's cute, but definitely not what I had in mind.

I caught a fairy!

The Japanese themed area of Shareta Osumai is very very pretty, but I knew right away it was not for me.

I never caught a cricket.

The Tahoe area was very foresty and nice, but again, just NOT what I wanted. And I also didn't get a photo.

What did I want? Well... I have my tasteful pretty home on Bluebonnet. I wanted a home where it could just be crazy. And so? The Meadowbrook area is where I knew I could really let loose. Or as loose as 117 prims would allow me.

Hell yeah. Texas is in the house.

We're in the house now!

You do get to choose what style of house you want, but you do not get to choose your location, other than which region you'd like. I ended up on the Flageolet sim. By chance, my friend Rob is just a little ways down from me. We've already been shouting to each other...which is actually frowned upon. Oops.

Howdy neighbor!

I'm sure I'll have a blast decorating in a way I'd never do normally. I've even met the next door neighbor, and he didn't seem to have issues with my pool duck. I love having a new little place to play in!

So let me get this straight, you live in the trailer on the deck? ;)

I'm curious to see if this will have any effect on the volume of premium accounts.

Do they allow you to rent your linden home to someone else?

My neighbor is new to SL and he felt that going premium was a good deal with the addition of the house, so it's possible!

And no, you're not supposed to rent them out, and you cannot sell the land. But I would assume that as long as you did not have a rental box at the house, which is forbidden, then they couldn't REALLY see if you were living there or not. I really don't know how that would work.
