Sims on jokaydiaGRID
- jokaydiaGRID offers rentals of full regions (sims). Full sim owners must provide a Master Avatar name at signup time or management of their region.
Building @ jokaydia:
- There is no limit on use or building styles, but all residents must build within their parcel boundaries except on prior negotation with jokaydia Management. Residents are also reminded to consider the surrounding environment in their build, and refrain from creating structures which limit or interfere with their virtual neighbours or other residents.
- We ask that Second Life residents limit their builds to 300m – as this allows us to provide some (relatively) lag free, private space for classes above 300m. There are no height limits on building for jokaydiaGRID residents.
- We also ask that residents keep their spaces open (free from ban lines) as much as possible to allow for ease of access for everyone on the estate. Spaces can be made private for special events or scheduled classes.
- If you have objects or scripts which significantly negatively impact on the ability for the sim (Region) to operate in an efficient manner (such as causing time dilation) we will ask you to cease using the items. This also applies to objects which can cause regions to crash.
- Rotating or flashing signs or structures that impact on your neighbours or the overall user experience at jokaydia in Second Life or jokaydiaGRID are not allowed.
