Sandbox Bricker ~ Exploring Adventures in Content Creation

I am just starting to explore the premium sandboxes in Second Life. Each month I will visit a new one as I work through projects. It is 8:00 AM EST and there is no one else here. I wonder if it ever gets really busy. Traffic is currently at 1709, which is almost what one avatar can cause in traffic ratings standing on a sim for about eight to ten hours. Yes – I have done it enough to know, but I was actually there creating content.  :p

Bricker Sandbox

This month’s sandbox is Bricker.  There are three other sandboxes that are attached to the Bricker Sandbox sim, which I will eventually be playing on in the coming months.  The sandboxes have rules that one must abide by when using them.  My question to find out is what is a simple script?  Does the average virtual world traveler understand or have the ability to determine if the scripts they choose to use are simple?  Can we be sure if we are not able to edit the scripts?  Is there a way to test the scripts so we do not accidently break this rule?  These are some of the questions we will need to answer in the coming months.

While hanging out in the sandbox there was one visitor.  She was doing a bit of rezzing and creating.  Her avatar looked a bit dangerous, but that is to be expected because this sandbox is an adult sandbox.  No kiddies allowed here.  Why would I choose to create content in an adult sandbox?  Creating content requires the use of the avatar and sometimes mishaps happen that exposes things that *coughs* one would not want to expose.  You get in trouble for that on G rated sandboxes, even if it were an accident.

This is me creating ad concepts, uploading new content and getting things together for the second part of our transition into virtual living without an in world store. I am a direct contrast to the lady I share the sandbox with currently. Yet, we both are there to do something specific ~ create, dream, invent, design. I was too shy to say hello. Maybe next time.

Breaking Down & Building Up

Today we removed one of the towers from the apartment building since there were no more tenants in that half of the building. The other tower still has one tenant, so its there until he moves or until the 31st, whichever comes first.

We picked up all of the grasses, trees and plants around the side that was removed and are down to one corner of the parcel to clean up and my store. This coming weekend, I will more than likely be spending time updating our eye ads and getting things ready to upload onto the marketplace. IEVL is thinking about cutting his parcel down to half the size it is as well, but hasn’t fully decided as of yet.

So much to do and its all exciting! I have new eyes to release as well, so the timing is good. Like tasks done together! Whoo Hoo!

I need to plan the next adventure. I think it will be a round of visits to the premium sandboxes to assess, do a bit of playing and planning. Maybe I will meet actual residents that say Hello! O.o LOL! At the very least I should see some interesting builds littered here and there.

And so we are onto our next chapter in the virtual world of Second Life. I could not be more excited about it!!
