The Future just seems too complicated
Its almost August already, half a year gone and I'm wondering what the second half has in store for me. Im finding it increasingly hard to create new stuff in SL. Things i used to have which made it easy, have since become incompatable with my MAC. Qavimator which i used to use to create animations quick and easy no longer works, and AC3D crashes to much to be of any use anymore in creating sculptys. Ad to this the growing limitations on land such as lack of prim usage and terraform restrictions, it leads to a period of stagnation.
Some people have seen this already, quite a few are IM me saying i should do something new at Goony Island. I'm trying, but all the good ideas take up to many prims. I cant afford a full prim island especially when i could be leaving for a long time end of this year or early next year. SL is no longer self sustainable, i cant make money from my shops to pay for the rent of islands. Also i'm not financially secure RL at the moment so i cant invest the huge amounts of money Linden Lab require to run their ragged services.
When i was a kid in RL i used to draw a lot. But i never kept my stuff, i would either chuck them in the bin or give them away. The method to the madness was to create, throw away move onto the next, improve on the previous, explore and expand, grow and get better. In SL i dont do that anymore. I have no room to grow, no time to explore and dont change anything because people become fond of places how they are. But if people complain that there is nothing new, or dont even think about the places ive built then perhaps it would be best to throw it away....
