Today I purchased two corgi pups in Second Life Marketplace. I think that is the first purchase I’ve made in three years! Since the last time I logged into Second Life, both my corgi and my best friend who helped me manage her lost his battle with cancer (AML). The new corgis are mesh, taking up only 2 prims if standing. I can also hold them in my arms as shown here. When I do that, there is no impact on the land. Before purchasing the corgis, I had spent a couple of hours in-world just going through inventory and trying to determine what to do about my appearance. I think I’m going to have to create a new mesh avatar if I plan to do a lot of filming. I have to be cognizant of copyrights and artistic licenses.
The big surprise came when I teleported to a premium sandbox and attempted to rez one of my resort builds. I had forgotten to rez an environment first. There was no ocean or terrain for my resort to anchor to. The whole scene was quite hilarious. I’m going to have to try again the next time I log in.
