Archive System

Ever Had Nightmares about Loosing Inventory?

Ever wondered what will happen if SL glitches and you loose part or all of your inventory? That’s a nightmare I keep considering lately. I have a fairly small inventory compared to most and this is on purpose. I delete everything I don’t use. Maitreya is the body that I am using and I have a LAQ Head. So everything that isn’t compatible normally gets deleted; but in the back of my mind I keep wondering what will happen if I decide to wear another body or get another head. Imagine the nightmare of starting again?

To Solve this problem I have decided to buy the Carlyle Theas Archive System, as it is the solution for inventory storage and safe keeping. Cost is 499L and you can get it on the Second Life Market place by clicking this link or click here to get it in world.

Uses of the Archive

  • Box up and store things you no longer actively need.
  • Store existing boxes or rez a basket to box up your items.
  • Organize your archived items in drawers.
  • Search and retrieve stored items easily.
  • Seamless Wardrobe integration*.

To get started with the Archive system I am watching videos made by Buttacwup Pwincess .

*If you haven’t heard of the Wardrobe before, then please take a look at my blog post where I tell you all about it. It’s something that I can’t do without, but I won’t go into all of that now again. Please click here to read about it (it’s truly the most amazing tool in SL).

Well I’m off to archive, let me know if you get the tool or the wardrobe. Love chatting about the wardrobe, and I am always happy to try and help.

Enjoy and here’s to an organised and safe inventory

Adventure Island Mini Golf Resort

Hey everyone

Today I thought that I would share one of my latest findings – Mini Golf.

Golf-collage-web

Adventure Mini Golf is a fun way to spend a few hours in SL with a bunch of friends, your partner or even alone, especially if you are trying to perfect that putting swing.  

Clubs can be rented for 25L and they last for 3 hrs, which is enough time to complete the whole course.  There is also the option to buy a set clubs for 250L, these can be used at other sims and you are able to share a club with a friend.  The club comes with a HUD and a scoresheet.

The Mini Golf resort is a good place to enjoy the view and has a peaceful atmosphere as you enjoy a game of mini golf. Ok Ok it’s given that you might want to break the club after you keep missing that small hole, but it’s SL right … and luckily that can’t really happen.

Teleport: Adventure Mini Golf

Cost : 25L to rent club for 3 Hours

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog, please comment if there is anything that you would like to share or if you do go and play.

Notre-Dame Cathedral

Notre Dame Cathedral

I am sure that by now, most of you are aware that a fire broke in the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris on the 15 April 2019. The fire started under the roof, it took 15 hours to be be extinguished and by that time most of the roof and the building’s spire had collapsed. There was extensive damage to the upper walls; but due to the stone vaulted ceiling the 13th century rose windows and most of the interior survived the fire, as well as the two pipe organs.

Notre Dame

To pay my respects I visited the cathedral in SL and lit a candle. In the Cathedral you can give a donation which will go towards the restoration. The restoration could take up to 20 years or more.

I have added some links about the devastating fire:

PurpleMoon Closing Down

50L Closing down sale at PurpleMoon Creations

Strike a pose

Have you heard the news???  PurpleMoon Creations is closing down; and everything in the store has been marked down to 50L … yip that’s right only 50L per item. The creator, Paulet Koenkamp mentions in her blog that she is still working on a couple of items which she is planning to give away as gifts. The sale should last for about a month.

PurpleMoons’ creator Poulet Koenkamp made the hard decision to give up fame and fortune in SL to focus on a RL career and her daughter.  I commend her on this decision.  Read what she has to say about this in her blog http://www.purplemoonsl.com/2019/03/sorry-we-are-closed.html

As soon as Gina and I heard about the closing down sale we rushed on over to see what we could pack into our shopping basket. Gina got this great mini skirt, shirt and jacket which is available in a few colours and I just had to get these jeans and cute little shirt.

This is the Life

I also picked up these pants and fringed jacket. I couldn’t resist and bought the red jacket too.

Click on this link and teleport to PurpleMoon now and grab this before Purple Moon Creations disappears into the mist.

Etosha Romantic Dance Paradise

Etosha

Etosha is a romantic open air ballroom, where you are able to look up and gaze at the stars. How romantic is that! It is set in an African, tropical paradise. The owners are Alex (Alex0075) and Bridgette (Bridgette Dalgleish) Etosha. Every time I have been there, I have seen them dancing the night away. They are a very friendly couple and I am always warmly welcomed. The evening can be started by taking a self-guided Venetian Gondola ride through the jungle, and there is also a self-guided balloon tour if you would like to explore from above.

I had a chat to Alex and he told me that Etosha was formed on the 15th October 2015. This happened after Alex got banned from the club that him and Bridget were frequenting and saw as their home club after the two of them met. They began their search for another romantic dance place to spend time together. After searching and not finding what they were looking for, they decided to start their own dance spot on the homestead that they owned. They were enjoying the place so much that they decided that they would love to be able to share it with other people, and this is how Etosha was born. Alex and Bridget had given themselves the name Etosha from the moment that they met. Etosha is a huge game reserve in Namibia in real life, they decided to use this African theme, and they added animals and gave it a beautiful tropical environment.

Etosha ballroom

Bridget built the building with the dance floor, and Alex added all the plants, trees and animals. He bought the gondola and made the river. It is on this river that you can take the gondola ride.

After having the club for a while, they started getting very frustrated because it seemed that no one was coming; at that stage they were using DJ’s and live singers. They then decided to get their own stream, and now they they have the stream playing there. Bridget added all the songs. Eventually people started coming, and now they have between 400 and 600 people visiting Etosha on a daily basis. On the 04 November 2018 they had 530 visitors. They chose some of the best and most romantic dances for the intan that you can find in SL.

They also have dance pads which are very popular for the singles to dance on.

dancing @ Etosha

Alex’s philosophy about a successful club ‘is to have a beautiful venue where people feel themselves at home, and want to stay with beautiful music which is pleasant to listen to.’

Etosha has a wonderful atmosphere and the people are friendly. It is a great place to meet and make friends. So if you feel like you would like a nice chat or dance, hop on over. I would recommend this place for singles and couples. Etosha is pg rated.

The music is slow and romantic, and there are some private dance and cuddle spots if you would prefer to slip off and have some quiet time.

Dress:

The guests of Etosha are to dress appropriately, as the club is strictly pg rated. Appropriate to them means that all vital body parts are covered. That does not mean that you can’t wear any sexy clothes, but they need to be tasteful.

Wedding Venue:

Ethosha is also a wedding venue and they provide the whole package. Alex does the ceremony, as he has done theological studies in rl. Bridget is a professional photographer and she built a beautiful wedding venue. They will also arrange a DJ for the party.

Halloween Sims

Halloween is almost upon us and there are lots of spooky sims to explore. Here are some that I would recommend that you go and see before the month ends.

Red’s Haunted Mainland Tour

Red Fire (robinleia)’s haunted tour is a must see, with spooks, zombies and monsters galore; and Kraken … which is a ‘have to take a ride on’ roller-coaster. Must admit that we went more than once.

The tour includes a maniac with a chain saw, a swamp, the asylum, the graveyard and the haunted mansion and even more in between. Be prepared to get your fright on, and maybe even take a chill pill before you head on out. The tour is best viewed at Midnight, so have your sound up high to get the full experience.

Come to my Haunted House

Here is a photo, taken by Red, she is bravely sitting in her haunted house, waiting and watching.  She is a fantastic SL photographer, and she has been so kind and helpful.  I am so grateful to her, as she used lots of her valuable time giving me some pointers on SL photography. As you can probably tell, my photos still are nowhere near her high quality standard.

For more of her beautiful photo’s have a look at her flickr page : Red Fire’s flickr page

I chatted to Red, and she told me this about herself , ‘Red Fire (robinleia): I build sets and choreograph dances..I work with a dance team and we do shows in SL. I also work in the concert circuit doing performances. These are avi performances, not live singing.’, but she is planning on singing live some time in the future.

She certainly is a very talented person.

Broom to get there: Red’s Haunted Mainland Tour

Ironwood hills Haunting 2018

Ironwood Hills is an experience event, where you are armed with your flashlight and a tablet.

Upon arrival, start with poking the ghost that’s standing outside the church, you will be given a folder containing a flashlight, the HUD, and a notecard. Wear the HUD and accept the experience key. If you do not allow the experience the game may not run correctly (I have done this many times and have never been hacked, it is completely safe). Read the first page on the tablet/HUD and walk into the church toward the coffin.

Then the adventure begins. Your tablet (HUD) is the key to discovering clues and seeing your progress through the story. There is a group that you can join and this can be useful if you get stuck.

Once you have completed the game you return to the start area and there you can collect your prizes, these have been contributed by some amazing designers. These prizes are available even if you haven’t done the game … but you are missing out on lots of fun!!

Hey Hey

Today I’m going to be sharing 5 gifts with you and 3 of them are unisex! Finding a gift for guys always makes me feel happy, I think that’s cause I know us woman definitely have the advantage in SL when it comes to clothing.

Searching for toilet roll in Octoberville

So let’s start from my feet and move up

Versov Unisex Footwear

Gift # 1 & 2

I often do hunts and quests and feel really silly jumping from rock to rock wearing heels, so when I found these unisex sneakers I was thrilled. These unisex sneakers are a group gift from Versov. Not only do you get these stunning group gifts but you also get 15% credit back on every product, when wearing the group tag while making a purchase.

Gift #4

Octoberville Shirt, Men’s and woman’s size

Is my Octoberville shirt which I am really proud of. You can find it at Octoberville, which is an event I blogged about a few weeks ago. Have a look at the post here. When you arrive at the sim you will be given a folder that contains a HUD and this needs to be worn. The shirt is in a chest that is hidden somewhere on the sim. If you can’t find it, maybe go and have a drink and think about where this could possibly be. When you find the chest you will be asked a question. The answer can be found by looking through http://www.Octoberville.com blog post. (Or if you are really stuck, contact me and I will give you some clues).

Taxi:  Octoberville 2018

Gift #5

Truth Hair October group gift

Truths VIP gift for October is this really Batty hair style, and that’s just what it is called … Batty. Just perfect for Halloween. The Truth group costs 350L to join but worth it as all VIP’s get free hair every month, and all hair comes with all colours and as you can see in the photo many different styles with each.  I chose a really wacked out style to fit in with my shirt and Octoberville.  You are able to choose different colours for the left and right. The bat colour can also be changed.

Free Altramura mesh body at Brazil for Men and Women

Hello Terrific people

Getting started in SL can be quite a challenge if you have 0 Lindens and not sure where to begin. The current trend in SL is to have a bento mesh body and mesh head. This can cost a pretty penny and most newbies, (and others) are not certain that paying real money is worth the cost of looking good in pixels. This blog is about freebies, group gifts and help for new SL residents, Newbies or Noobs are they are called too. I hope that this will help the older SL residents that would like to try out mesh.

I have found a couple of freebie places in SL that are perfect for newbies who are wanting to sort out their avatars with 0 Lindens. New Resident Island is for the classic avis, and here you can get a good start. Here is a layout of the Island and all they offer.

Ajuda Brazil SL has everything you need to get started in SL, with a newer feel. Clothing, shoes, hair, full avatars etc. I stumbled along this sim when trying to assist a new SL resident that wanted to sort out his avi. Personally I find this a daunting task, and it takes me hours, (unlike my bestie Gina who has the knack for finding great deals and is able to take a new avi from zero to hero quickly.)

If you are wanting to jump straight into mesh, Atamura has free Men’s and Women’s Mesh Bodies, including a mesh head at Ajuda Brazil SL;.this is a really generous gift. The woman’s mesh body is called Valentina, and Maitreya clothing seems to fit nicely. The men’s mesh gift is called Max. Please don’t arrive there naked cause you will get banned.

Altamura’s Valentina gift comes with the following in the folder:

If you are able to scrounge 50$L together you can join the Altamura Group and they have quite a few group gifts scattered around the shop, then you will have a few mesh bodies and heads to play with, it’s well worth joining the group.

I will be blogging soon about how to make lindens in SL soon, so look out for that.

Teleport to Altamura

Let me know how it goes and if you stumble across anything that can help others please leave a comment below.

Keeping it terrific in SL
