As part of ramping back up to full-time coverage at VB, I’m going to do some minor site updates, and update my virtual world presence.
Nothing drastic re: the site — an updated banner, a few visual tweaks, and some behind-the-scenes WordPress patches that I’ve been putting off. Let me know if you have any suggestions (particularly if you pay attention to what’s current with WordPress). Also shoot me a note if you want to let me know about your site, as I am overhauling my link list.
I’m updating my Second Life virtual world presence a little bit too — also nothing drastic. I’m looking for two things. First, a place for a small office, and second, a professional, realistic “animation override.”
Regarding the office, I used to maintain the SL Bar Association’s original office on the mainland, in a sim called Sallow. It was actually “first land” back when they let you do that, and it was a great location. I had Governor Linden protected land on one side, and a brothel in the sky (with a nice forest of trees at eye level) on the other. When ‘Beathan Vale’ donated space in his Justice Center build for new SLBA offices, I sold the plot to the Madame next door, and as result, I now have a 512m account I prepay every year, but no land.
I’d like to find something on the mainland, maybe with some historical significance. Having protected land or water on one side would be ideal, and I am willing to pay a bit of a premium for the right spot. I know… call me crazy, but I’m actually a sucker for ground-level builds on the mainland.
Regarding my avatar, I’m looking for a good, professional animation override, or, more likely, a collection of animation override parts that work together. The problem I have is that all of the male animation overrides I have found tend to run to one extreme or the other — they either make the avatar look like he’s terribly shy or else like he’s itching for a bar fight.
Suggestions for both, including self-promoting links to your Second Life stores and land sales operation, are welcome.
