Reducing Lag on Bellisseria

Fish Ice Cream

Are my neighbors lagging me on Bellisseria? Yes, the more densely populated a region is, the more chances of lag increasing due to scripted objects running on the region and nearby avatars causing you lag. I’ll write a blog post about Avatar Rendering Cost sometime, but I don’t find other avatars to be a problem since I don’t render them. However, since I am living communally on Bellisseria, I do care when my neighbors are using an excessive amount of scripts on their land and increasing lag for everyone on the region. Find out what causes lag and how to reduce lag on the official Second Life wiki.

Culprit Hovery Craft

Let’s go for a ride! I meant to tell you guys about the Culprit Hovery Craft (visit the mainstore) last week cos of the limited time sale, but I’ve been too busy riding, flying, and sailing it ALL over Bellisseria. It’s truly the best little classic car ever. I can give one friend a ride with it, and I’ve been driving all of them home in my little car. I say this should be the official ride for Bellisseria, cos it’s good on land, sea, and air.

Culprit Hovery Craft
Beep! Beep!

Driving can be a bit challenging on Bellisseria, especially with land orbs ejecting people too quickly. 15 seconds is not enough time to reverse and get out of a parcel when you’ve accidentally driven off the road. Please, dear neighbors, stop using land orbs. For as long as I have been on Bellisseria (since April 15th), no one has ever wandered onto my land uninvited. It doesn’t happen as much as people would like to think.

Culprit Hovery Craft

The Culprit Hovery Craft also includes a rezzer, so you can rez it on your land for friends and neighbors to use. So awesome, and so cheap for everything that it comes with, and all of the joy it brings.

I love the Culprit Hovery Craft so much that I built a carport to store it! Well, I didn’t actually build it, Blush Bravin did, but I rezzed it on my land and built a drive way for it. I avoid mega add-ons cos I enjoy my sparsely decorated beach. This carport and porch add-on is not too big, and suits the tiny Adams house very well.

What I’m Wearing:

  • Exile – Elle
  • The Secret Store – Flora Lace Top, Aster Garter Shorts

Halloween Swaginator Hunt

Here lies

I don’t always do hunts in SL, but I did the Halloween Swaginator Hunt for fun. It was quick hunt with only 4 things to find! You must wear the free HUD from the Swaginator gift-giving station before you start the hunt.

Important tip: When you teleport to your locations, be sure to stand close to the grave/giant pumpkin before you click on it to receive the gifts and the next hint. The hint is spoken in local chat, so if you’re too far away, you won’t see the next hint, and the object will not repeat it (frustrating).

Seashore

Seashore

Hi from the Sommergewitter sim, which translates to summer thunderstorm.

I’ve been thinking about my hair color lately… and I’ve decided to go platinum blonde again. Exile made the cutest short wispy hairstyle called Insomnia. In fact, I’m obsessed with a lot of Exile hairstyles lately; you should definitely go check out the Exile mainstore for some gorgeous hairstyles.

My photos are so much better cos of EEP! Have you tried the EEP viewer? I can’t wait for EEP to be live on the grid, so more people will be forced to try it out.

What I’m Wearing:

  • Exile – Insomnia
  • Amitomo – Girlfriend Gacha (4)
  • Toksik – Selva Shorts
  • Ingenue – Elin Flats

Ready for Fall

Ready for Fall

Hi! Are you ready for fall? I’m so happy the weather will be slightly cooler, that I’ve already started decorating my Ashton Village home.

Ready for Fall

I decorated the exterior of the house with some starry pumpkins from What Next and Eileen string lights kit from Sway’s. I do have a ton of autumn decor, so it was nice to be able to use it!

Ready for Fall

The Decker Natural Living Set from Cheeky Pea is versatile and so easy to arrange. It gives a fabulous fall vibe, and goes along with the other What Next autumn-themed decor I had. I like all of my homes to have soft lighting, whether it be from string lights or illuminated decor.

Have you decorated for Autumn in SL yet? Let me know in the comments!

EDIT 9/7/2019: I’ve left Ashton Village; now that I have fulfilled my Autumn home decorating dreams! I hope the new owner enjoys it as much as I did.

What I’m Wearing:

  • Truth – Labyrinth
  • The Secret Store – Helena V-Neck Sweater (Dotted)
  • The Secret Store – Celestial Flounce Skirt (Milk)
  • Reign – Oxley Woven Boots
  • Reign – Fall Vibes Traveler Bag (The Romantic #13)
