Venturing into Land Owning
I decided to splurge and buy a mainland sim in InWorldz after being here only about a week. 60.00 No set up fee, and some of my favourite sellers are in InWorldz ( Redgrave, Vista, .:Emo , Pulse…) how could I pass it up?
I didn’t purchase because I wanted to become a land baron and make money. I purchased because I wanted to create my own actual virtual space. I did decide to rent out a few parcels, but to also keep a lot of common ground open for tenants and InWorldz travellers to enjoy.
Birchglen is located on the Diamond Valley sim on the Mainland. It is newly created and definitely a work in progress! However, here are a few pictures so far.
A few of the things that I really like about InWorldz are the great currency exchange… 2500 I’z costs 5.00 US and is payable by credit card or paypal, crossing sims is quite an easy feat, I’ve experienced very little lag, the prims are AMAZING! Coming from second life, the fact that parcels are found all over the place for .50/Prim is mindblowing. YES I can get primage for free on OsGrid with my own computer as a virtual server, but it’s great to hand the tech stuff over to someone else to take care of. I also like all the creativity I see. It seems as though many people have come from SL, and indeed have a presence in both (and possibly more) worlds, but coming from SL to a place where uploading is free and it is such a blank slate, it’s pretty exciting. As a result, I have found some very nicely made places.
I also had the chance to catch Russell Eponym performing in the beautiful Greek region of Parakia. It ended up being a really great crowd and the music was great.
Owning on Mainland has its limitations, however SL mainland has become a garish nightmare in so many spots, I can understand wanting to keep some control on the Mainland.
So, if you are looking to try something different, come to InWorldz.. different yet familiar 🙂 Visit the cafe or park in Birchglen – Diamond Valley, and if you’d like to rent a lovely parcel in a new community, check out the parcels that I have available or message me. My InWorldz avi is Birch Wind. Search me there and you will find an email addy to contact me with, if I am not online.
Birchglen is a great place to call home 🙂
