Mainland Update

Despite the land ownership issues described in my previous post, I’ve been making progress on building. The first thing I did was put up pine trees around the offending prim, which helped hide it enough to motivate me to keep going! While I heard back from Linden Lab (who understandably can’t do anything), there’s been nothing at all from the group members I contacted. So the waiting continues.

So far I’ve completed the structure of my shop, added landscaping and lights, and created places for people to hang out and relax by the water. I also discovered tonight that the Fantasy Faire Radio stream is available year-round! I have no idea if this is old news, but after encountering so many broken “ambient” stations, I promptly made it my parcel’s audio stream.

The next week in RL is going to be busy, but I’m hoping to at least create one new coat during that time!

  1. I noticed your land is on a stone ground, so I thought to drop this idea to you. Mine was also on stone, and I wanted to change that to grass. Since you can’t change ground textures, I picked up this LandMap.

    It’s a little pricey and doesn’t always map 100% absolutely perfect, but your land is a lot more flat than mine, so it should work pretty well, I’d think. You just have to follow the instructions (it comes with an online step-by-step tutorial), and it maps a mesh prim to the shape of your land, which you can then texture with whatever ground stuff you like. You might have to do some wonky manipulation for that strange-shaped area, or use several maps to get that part done.

    If you like the stone, not a problem. But I was glad to have grass on my land instead! 🙂

    1. Thanks for the link! I ultimately picked pine trees since they grow on mountains lol, but I’m not 100% set on the stone. There’s a tiny bit of grass at the very bottom, but this sounds pretty cool — does it automatically detect the land you own, or do you specify what part should be mapped?
