My OpenSim mini-grid Dankoville has “Closed for Renovations.” I hope to be self-hosting it again when a new and expanded version of the grid is ready. I’m working on the new grid in SoaS and will be for a few weeks. During that time, I’m holding an Open House here on Kitely – a preview version of the new Dankoville is now open to all Kitely accounts and HG visitors.
I use Dankoville as a story setting in my writing. It’s meant to be a depiction of a small town somewhere in the Corn Belt of the United States. The Chamber of Commerce brags that Dankoville is “the third largest town in Strange County” after the small cities of New Teasdale and Stevenson. Most of the rest of the area is farmland. It’s really a quiet town, off the beaten path, really not notable for much of anything. Well, other than that family of time travellers that lives on a farm a few miles outside of town.
The sim is 16 regions and it’s very obviously “under construction” but there is plenty there to make it a good stop for explorers or anyone who wants to hang out or RP in a “small town life” setting.
I used to create a lot of “alts” (virtual world speak for alternate avatars) in Second Life just because I could. But as I started writing about my virtual life, I wanted to create avatar versions of some of the characters I was writing about. Just for fun. That’s when my total number of alts got out of hand. So I’ve had to kill some off from time to time. Well, I didn’t really “have” to…it’s just my preference. I never used these alts so I decided to get rid of them so I could clear the way for the creation of other alts who are being used…in story.
Every once in awhile I bump off a few more.
