I’ve decided to keep with this feature, and will try to blog a place every couple of weeks. If any of you find a unique, interesting rental home that you think might be worth blogging about please let me know! Anywayyy After 4 hours of trawling around SL, I eventually ended up at “60L rentals”. Thats exactly what it is, a home for 60L per week, it’s what it says on the tin kinda deal! However, the clever thing is you don’t have to choose one home – oh no – you actually get a choice of seventeen ! I stumped up 60L and got my slice of home-sweet-home, then played around with it for an hour. Above is the beach scene I really liked, cabin with adult bed, rockers, locking doors, and an adult daybed. Soft sounds of ocean waves (which I can’t find a way to turn off!), and swirling water effects all around.
Got tired of that after a while so took a look at the other options from the board above. This board is important if you rent here. Its your security, rent box and multi-scene changer thinger. You are located high up in the sky in your own dome, then you select from the pop up menu what home you’d like to rez – note- when you come back to your home from a period away, just the dome is there, it’s not permanent – no worries though, just select it again from the board. The padlock is your security, I stupidly didn’t bother with the helpful notecard given to me upon renting (duh) and came home to find a couple exploring my home , my own fault. Read the notecard, set it up so only I can enter, everyone else is auto ejected – nice !
Obviously as there is a Barnesworth Anubis build in the options I chose that next (fangirl!) Each home has a good bed with adult and PG animations, plus in some cases menu driven couches, daybed and sun loungers. Its worth noting that you do get a small prim allowance of ten prims. Enough for shopping bags and perhaps the odd personal item you might want to keep out from time to time.
Theres such a big choice of home styles, from Gorean camp, xxx urban role play, apartments,forests. At this price point it would also make an ideal place to take blog photos (as Zan uses up SO many prims at home I can never rez my own photo scene bubble!) This is a budget operation but with quality options, if you’re a high maintenance type of renter who needs lots of assistance it might not work for you so well, BUT if you READ THE HELP NOTE CARDS – you would be fine !
Upon arrival at the office you’ll find this type of board, no need to choose they are all the same btw. Utilise the teleport button, kindly highlighted in BRIGHT yellow and go up to the dome, pay the rent box et voilà, you’re ready to roll. The group invitation arrives straight away, make sure you grab it and accept or you wont be able to set your home position and rez items. I’ve been in this rental for a couple of days now and apart from neglecting to set up my security properly and having uninvited guests, its been quiet and peaceful. My nearest neighbours seem to be about 600m away, and the sim isn’t remotely laggy. The intan dance system is a nice touch for couples and friends and I have actually enjoyed my “little getaway” place.
