The Neutral Avatar is created by Cherry Manga, it is her "Bird" avatar. Such an amazing creator. You can find her region here.
Let's support these beautiful creators by visiting their Grids soon.❤
We are currently working on two projects at con.tin.u.um.
Pandora region we will be adding more caves and updating some of the older plants to newer mesh creations. Many of the tortured prim plants will stay, I feel prims do have a place in opensim. Even though prims add up and there are limitations; prims rez better. Let's face it loading mesh sometimes ruins a great experience. The beautiful details and prim saving mesh loads slowly or not at all depending on how it is made. Prims are so faithful in their performance we know what we get with prims and some of the free 3D websites where many find free mesh resources the mesh is made poorly.
CurledSun is where we are featuring Blue Mind interactive ocean. We will be adding an immersive ocean tour of the region. We have added a little steampunk submarine by Vbinnia Radek "Vbinnia's Steampunk Bathysphere" which can be picked up at Lani mall.
Please use it to tour what we have currently installed. As time progresses we hope to have a touring sub that will take you through the stunning depths of our ocean.
I knew I was not going completely mad, just partly. I want to thank @Fred Beckhusen sincerely for giving us control over our worlds. I never realized just how much control I had lost until I created my own DreamGrid.
For years I was told that export permissions box was grayed out because it was a "bug" in opensim. I found that to be odd, and could not wrap my head around the reason so I would continue loading content into the world and market.
When it came time to leave this grid, I could not export anything from inventory to my new grid con.tin.u.um I could only export items that were listed as export in the market, again I found this odd. Tried every single way you can imagine to try to get my very own full permission created solely by me-still I could not export my very own creations unless they were first marked export and placed in market.
So once settled into my new DreamGrid, I began filling my free store with items I found at the free resource sites and checking permissions to make sure others could export out the free items I see that export does in fact work, it is not grayed out in a grid where I have control over the settings, who woulda thunk it?
As most of you know I opened a store at the Kitely marketplace last year and for over a year I uploaded content to the Kitely grid. In the course of that time I also picked up items around the metaverse from Outworldz and Lani mall, one being the Paramour Dance Machine by Aine Caoimhe at that time of Refuge grid.
Most everyone at Kitely has this dance machine so I rezzed and used it like everyone else. I did not realize there was an issue with this dance machine until Ilan threatened to ban me for just having it at my region because of the Creative Commons Share Alike 4.0 License it had. Items using this license is not allowed at Kitely grid, at least that is what I am told by Ilan.
I found this out after I created the Blue Mind interactive ocean at my Sierra Sonnet region in Kitely. When I presented the license to Ilan showing what the content was licensed as, Creative Commons Share Alike 4.0, that is when he told me it all had to be removed from my inventory or be banned. This made no sense to me since everyone else at grid had this very same dance machine, even Ilan himself.
I am pointing this out because I had invested in over a year and uploaded most of my jewelry to the Kitely grid, then after a year I am told to remove items everyone has or be banned. I feel this harsh stance especially since Ilan himself has this very same dance machine.
I decided to create a DreamGrid by Fred Beckhusen called con.tin.u.um and put my content there; only this time making it free. I will also be working on the Blue Mind project at the CurledSun beach at Bastion region at con.tin.u.um.
What hurt me the most about all this is the effort, time and expense it took to establish myself at Kitely, a year wasted all because Ilan failed to spell out his rules/stance on Share Alike 4.0 in his TOS because had I known about his stance prior to establishing a Kitely store, I never would have.
