Orca Flotta

As a "resident" (does anyone still think of themselves this way any more?)

Counter question: why should anyone not think about themselves as resident?

Hey, when dealing with LL I would never allow them to call me resident. Not after they smeered the term so badly by giving all n00bs Resident as last name. But I'm Orca Flotta, I have a real last name and am, for them, a paying customer FFS!

But in world it gives me a warm and cozy feeling knowing I'm a resident, a part of something bigger, a citizen of Second Life.


Pay a visit to Hangars Liquides too if you like Insilico. It is totally chaotic and easy to get lost in but looks even better in my opinion. Era of Salvation is nice too, but the apartments there does not provide that much of a view. And other then Insilico and HL, it is a all out RP sim where people are expected to be in character while being there. Of course I doubt it would be any issue to sit on some roof with a OOC-tag and enjoy the view ^_^

And it is right, everything in SL is a:

"beautiful but frustrating because it always seemed to be simply a gorgeous show piece full of building facades but with no depth"

Because the depth comes from people using it and "living" in it. And that for the most part only works for RP sims that managed to grow a strong community. And those are rare.


I have to agree with Rin. The depth comes from living inworld. Every time I come to Insilico, I make it a point to visit a different location, simply because there is so much wonderful detail. It's a place that I would love to occupy in the default world. Minus the RP violence, ofc, LOL!
