The London Sims is now able to offer really affordable housing for newcomers to Second Life. Before this if you had a very limited budget you were driven to sleeping in the park -or busking the streets-lol. (see pics of me doing this below.) The other problem with this is you have no where to get changed and are driven to hanging round on rooftops trying things on! And, apart from sandboxes,which are a bit too public, you have nowhere to rez your boxes.
But, now for between 30 and 5o Lindens you can have your very own London pad. The flats are surprisingly spacious and have views over Knightsbridge. They only have 15 prims, but don`t worry – a bed and sofa are provided. What more could a “newbie” need?
The London Sims is opening a New User Area very soon, too, so you can orientate yourself properly and gain some practical tips. Friendly staff will be there to explain things to you and offer advice and fun. We also have a freebie store so you can pick up all your essentials without spending a penny! (Store is currently changing location soon, so will either be found in Kensington or Knightsbridge.)
