SLRR Rail Jam 2010 Post Post

18 Aug

So, here is the post post I promised about Sunday’s SLRR Rail Jam.  The rubber banding of my trailer park & taco stand delayed it, but it has been rebuilt.  It gave me the perfect opportunity to make some changes I had been considering, but were impractical giving I had everything set up already.  But once everything was back in my inventory (& Cherry’s – sorry dear>_<), no more excuses!

Ok, now that I have out of the way, on to the Rail Jam!  I started out riding in a trolley with lander Bracula of Shilo Falls, Old West Town amusement park.

I made it as far as the first sim crossing…  I didn’t get pics of it, but I found myself stuck in the air, with no option but to teleport out.  So I teleported home, & by that time I wasn’t sure where the train was so I just stayed at the taco stand.  There were a few people there watching the trains, so it was nice.  I gave out tacos & beer.

After the last train passed, we went to Calleta to watch them pulling into the final station.  Hobo Town was the end of the line – & the roughest sim crossing.

There was a crash, worsened by the pile up behind it.  One train even blew up!  Of course my nosy ass was standing right there (munching a taco), so I was showered by metal & smoke.

Pile up!

It was my first train event & it was a lot of fun!  I had never been to hobo town, so getting to see that was a lot of fun, too.

To see the rest of my pics, see my web album.  If you see yourself or your train, place, etc, in any of my pics, please leave a comment, & so I can credit properly.  Also, if you’d like to have a copy of one of the pics, contact me with your email & I’ll send it to you.  I believe me pics in the album are set so no one can copy them.

Thanks for reading!


Good news, bad news

16 Aug

More like bad news, middlin’ news really.

Let’s start with the middlin’ news.  I found another rental directory with a fairly high ranking in the classifieds & cheap spaces, so I put my sign up there last night.  It’s the same one as the other.

My sign @ Rental Central

If you decide you must see this awesome, amazing sign for yourself, be in fly mode when you go, because it’s at the top of the wall & that link will take you nose to nose with it.

And now for something completely different…  the bad news.

The trailer park is gone.  The taco stand is also gone.  Yes, you heard right.  If you stop by right now you will see an empty lot.  After a random person rezzed something yesterday, I was playing with the settings.  I turned on auto return & ZIP! 90% off everything on the Pini side disappeared.  My one poor renter, she finally put some stuff out yesterday & boy is she going to be confused when it shows up in her lost & found folder.  Especially since she just paid up a week yesterday>_<  Oh well, we’re friends.  She’ll get a good giggle out of it.

I was wanting to redo the landscape anyway though, so this isn’t a bad thing entirely.  Also, maybe push the taco stand back & move up the yard sale.  I’ve been meaning to redo the yard sale somehow.   Maybe make the private lots bigger if I can, too.  When you create something you always find things you wish you had done differently.

Everything in Pawpaw is safe though, so Taco Hill & all that is still there.

Also, if anyone has any recommendations for a good, economical teleporter system that will work across sim lines I’m looking.  & for sim crossing, I’m fine with the map method.  I do not want one of the kind that slings you over.  I have one of those & I hate it.  It misses half the time & when you are trying to reach a sky platform that is a big issue, lol.  I am looking for something that will allow me to lock certain locations from all the pads.  I thought I could with the what I have now, but it just keeps people from using that teleporter if you lock it.  I want to be able to fix it so people can’t port to the private lots if the owner doesn’t want randoms dropping in.  Currently all I can do is remove that location from all the pads, but that means no one can use the teleporters to get to them.  Possibly I may need to give each of them their own single point teleporter.  I’d love to hear any suggestions you have!

I have pics from the rail jam yesterday & I’ll be posting those later – since now I have to put my trailer park & taco stand back together>_<
