Team Fire's Fun House

After watching Grand Designs, I decided to invest in a sweet little piece of virtual land. Since we can't build it in real life, we'll build it in Second Life. And I hadn't realised how affordable Second Life land was in the rolling auctions - for about L2500 (approx USD10) I got a simple 512m sq plot (my land tier limit) on the side of a mountain by the seaside. Seemed like a good kickstart for practicing some building and scripting. I don't know if thats a good price in the Second Life land auctions since I haven't watched the numbers for long, but it seems reasonably affordable as the startup cost to embark on this game. A GAME WITH NO RULES...

Introducing the site of TEAM FIRE's NEW FUN HOUSE:

Okay nothing has been built yet but we have grand designs for a skybox/sandbox of some sort... in the meantime, I rezzed up a giant flower that rotates. I mean, obviously, it can be really hard to find our precise plot on the mountainside if there isn't some giant spinning psychedelic flower floating over it. And so we sat on top of the giant flower on the mountainside and admired the view...

OH and we also met our hunky tattooed neighbour, who is probably going to start up a chain of sexy nevada-style casino brothel skyscrapers next to us. He probably thinks we're a bunch of inexperienced tools, wiling away our days, sitting on a giant retarded flower next to his plot...

BUT I'LL BET OUR FLOATING FUN HOUSE WILL BE MORE FUN THAN HIS CASINO SKYSCRAPER!

I've decided to seperate my SL from my RL interests, so for those interested in following our building progress and other tips/notes on Second Life Building, you can visit our other building blog at teamfirefunhouse.blogspot.com
