MakeOver Monday

Hey there my darling No0bs and all Fabulous Folks. Class is in session once again and we have a TON of things to cover tonight. So let’s jump on in.

First, I want to answer a question I received because I think it’s something we all struggle with: Makin’ those Lindens. I have been checking out one of the easiest ways and that is the Fish Hunt Game. You catch fish and then pop to the game’s HQ and turn them in. The biggest thing is it takes forever to make any significate money. But it’s all free and if you have the patience for it then as you fish you get better at it and over time you start to catch more fish and less trash. If you use the Fishing Game to make money, let me hear from you! 

Much like the Fishing, patience is needed for the next “free” money maker: The Money Chairs. I found this one at the Kingbal store. ( Which also has loads of freebies everywhere.)  You only make 1L at a time and only if your letter or a ? comes up. So…. not fun but still totally free. I couldn’t find a list of such chairs or even the “Money Trees” new residents can harvest for their first 30 days. 

I’m going to come out and say… the best way to have L$ is simple to buy it with real currency. The exchange rate is good. One Linden is literally one cent. The minimum purchase order is $2.50 which buys you 600L ( at the current rate) You can set up a payment method as you choose including PayPal. Of course , this is JUST my own personal opinion so take it with a huge grain of salt. 

I want to clear something else up in response to a nasty comment/NC I received in world. The Bloggers here on FabFree are NOT paid. We don’t even get “free stuff” from most designers and creators. We set piggybanks up at our HQ because some folks like to help out their favorite bloggers with our expenses or to say a little “thank you”. We aren’t ‘begging on top of getting all that free stuff’. We do this because we love it.

So let’s jump to the next thing from last week: Housing.  Now Ms Aline had a post a few weeks ago about a community that was offering free housing in exchange for resident who would be VERY active in the community.   I don’t know if that’s still available but it could be a place to start.

What I can recommend for all us penny-pinchers is a SandBox. These are places you are allowed to rezz objects and build free of charge. There are “premium Sandboxes” out there that are pay or only for folks who have a premium account. But many are simply free open places.  You can find empty ones by typing in “Sandbox” to your search.

Pick one, I picked this one at random. Please respect the rules of each sandbox, there will usually be a sign or an automatic NC delivery with rules.

Then, open your World Map. (ctrl + M). In the left lower side you’ll see your “Location”  Use the arrow or manually enter a height. I picked 1500- ish and that seems to be high enough. Get your avatar in ‘fly’ then teleport up.  Take a look around if the sky is empty as far as you can see, you’re in the right place. 

Now, if you’re using FireStorm Viewer simply type ” REZPLAT ” and get a platform. Now you can land and rezz boxes or whatever you need. 

You can even rezz a skybox.  There are a TON of free skyboxes on the MarketPlace for you or go grab this gorgeous “New York Apt Skybox” from AppleFall for free. 

The outside of the skybox sitting on the platform I rezzed

The beautiful inside. You’d never know you were hovering in space.

Each Sandbox has a different time of “return” when it automatically returns everything in the sandbox to it’s owners. So do check to see when the next clean takes place before you rezz out. And , just as a curtesy, when you log out take/delete your items. Leaving trash in the sandbox (or anywhere you may be able to rezz that isn’t yours) is just rude. 

One thing to remember – You can’t set your “Home” to one of these sandboxes. To get around this, make sure you leave Second Life from your platform each time. Then when you come back to log in, log in to “Last Location” and you will pop in at the sandbox. 

Okay, my darlings, that’s it for tonight. I promise next week is “Inventory Control”  It’s a huge subject so I want to spend some time on it.  Have a great week and I’ll see ya on the blog!

One PS….  The Legacy FREE gift Body is still available. I picked up both Alistar and Kery a copy and I love it. It’s BOM ready and has a ton of bells and whistles. I highly recommend it. 

Cheers FabFree!

Toujours Provence

Toujours Provence

I have been waiting ever so patiently (for several years now) for restrictions to start lifting and things to get a bit more safe so I can have a much needed vacation.  At the top of my list is lovely Provence in the South of France.  I’m in love with the fields of lavender, the rambling old buildings, the warmth, and of course, the food.  Since I’m still waiting very patiently, I’m pretending to have a nice lunch in the Lubéron, complete with a bit of cassoulet and perhaps even a bit of Pastis.  You can’t blame a girl for dreaming…

Chez COCO

There are two new group gifts at COCO!  They were just added to the massive wall of free gifts just this weekend, and I am feeling a bit rugged and ready for a ramble in them!  You’ll find the skinny jeans, and rain boots (sized for Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya & Slink) are the latest, but also the off shoulder cardigan I’m wearing was added not too long ago, and we hadn’t shown it to you on the blog quite yet.  COCO is a wonderful place to go to grab some very excellent staples for your wardrobe, and I recommend it as one of the first stops for any new residents of the grid as well!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

  • Isis (top only)
  • Slink (top only)

Bon appétit!

Tastic FF Gift Jan 2022_002 (1)

Though its been cold for us Southerners today is perfect for the beach. I admit I’m an ocean & beach child. Maybe I’m related to the Cousteau family.
