Since my Second Life days are going to start being Mondays, I’m going to do Monday updates.
For traffic, it will become weekly. I’ll try to not reset the counters for The Farm and Camelot Ranch until Monday mornings. I say try because after so many years, it’s been my morning coffee time habit to check and reset them each day. And being without coffee on the hard to wake up days…well, mistakes can happen!
A few critters important to me found homes in my cheap inventory reduction sale. Thank you so much to the buyers.
The 10t ponies are still a challenge to me I keep going back and forth on. I think I’ll leave the random givers out for those and not heaven them. I still need another 200 crates or critters before the next heaven epic edition so not in a hurry, and the givers are only 1 prim.
The 10t lives are not selling – no interest. And I did some research on their lines. Judging from following their lines forward to their babies and their babies babies, and so on, it looks like there’s not a lot of breeding going on with these lines at all.
I do suspect that many breeders were like me. Lowered their prim use drastically on SL due to RL, cost, and moving to other grids.
I’ve only got two days left before the land is gone, so they’ll sit out just in case anyone is interested. But I do think there’s one I’ll keep for myself if she doesn’t go. The rest will be deleted.
Not sure on the exotics that are out yet. Guess I’ll see what I feel like when it’s time to clear out. Was very tempted to delete nearly everything left again. With the number of 25-50L sellers out there, it’s cheaper to buy to breed again than heal. Even with the more respectable 100-150L sellers out there it’s cheaper.
Speaking of which, I may add another post soon on pricing. Been getting some confused queries by people who know me from the old days that this fits into. (Wow, someone reads this blog! Thanks!)
Sigh…still wish BB would let their breedables go dormant in inventory. So much waste! Either the critter gets heavened before going sick because I don’t want to invest time and/or money in healing it. Come on. Even if it’s 0 seeds, it still costs 14 prims of rental space.
Didn’t sound like much to me when I first started this, but then I realized that’s a lot when you need to heal more than a few critters. It adds up. Especially when you know after eating the 18 days of prim rent, you then have to buy the next set of seeds.
Plus, the price of healing is not worth 5 biochips. Think I’ve added up that I’ve lost the credit for one heaven epic due to just deleting ones I don’t want to keep and not willing to pay to heal.
Another suggestion would be to maintain the catalog better. Lots of stuff in there. But it’s not sorted for easy shopping, and not much is available. Don’t understand it. Being able to use the chips for new starters became addicting for me at the beginning. Then after a few breeds, they stopped letting us use chips for new starters.
The more you offer people to turn in their excess, the better for the system and for the market. People may be less desperate and feel they have to sell for 25L to get rid of their excess.
My Pet Peddlers family is turning more into a market playing game. I left that game long ago and do not wish to return. It served me well during my years of training. Now I have better use of my time, and personal investment.
But a terrific crowd and I’d highly recommend joining the Pet Peddlers group to anyone. We’re keeping some running, and keeping some out for sale. We don’t get the prime stuff, so pretty sure our stock will still grow faster than we can get rid of it. If sales allow me, I’ll rent a space for a week or two weeks to birth and chum for food to keep that down, as needed.
But I’ve decided one thing. IF things turn to where I need to return to breeding a lot of critters in Second Life in the future, my emphasis will be on Kittycats. They are the best at making their K$ worth so much. I don’t have to sell and know my excess is worth something.
They’re one of the smartest breedables business around. No wonder they have so many members and no wonder so many keep wanting them to come to Inworldz.
