@LillySparks contributions not only advanced the technology of virtual surfing but also brought people together, creating a more vibrant and cohesive community. Her work remains a testament to the power of innovation in enhancing virtual worlds and the experiences they offer. I feel my dream is finally realized, to have quality surfing in opensim is a beautiful thing but the cohesive community is just heartwarming. Seeing Hyacinth creating her new surf region gave me total goosebumps because in SL in the beginning that is how it was, everyone was creating their surf sims, creating their teams and all coming together each month for a surf comp, we can do this too! We can create our surf sims, our teams, and have fun competitions. Lag right now might be a thang to overcome if we have lots of action other than surfing on the sim, we might have to have the competitions in a stripped down sim with just the waves and boards but there is so much hope for this!! I am over the moon excited about our future! Get out there and surf everyone and thank you, @FerdFrederix, Kayaker, Hyacinth, and Lilly and team! 🏄‍♀️💕

Weekenders! I started this in GCG as a fun way to explore the grid. I have little weekender cabins located around the grid for your weekend stay. Free! Just checkin Friday night and depart on Sunday at Noon. Longer stays can be arranged too. I have a Weekender office located at Catena di Isole that explains each cottage and the location! Just IM to book your stay. I have a cool back pack filled with all sorts of goodies for the traveler!
I’ve crafted this article to assist individuals eager to upload their models to Opensimulator but unsure of where to begin. This guide aims to direct you toward exceptional resources, making the process much more accessible.

---->It is not all botted from SL
Many SL creators obtain their models from these same resources.

Own your DreamGrid, own your creativity. Build captivating virtual worlds, foster a community, and be the architect of extraordinary experiences. It's not just software, it's a boundless canvas for your imagination to take flight. @FerdFrederix thank you!
Through the shimmering lens of my crystal sphere, I glimpsed a distant city ensconced in a veil of mystique. Towers of opulent architecture soared into the cerulean sky, their spires adorned with intricate carvings that whispered tales of forgotten epochs...
When people post private conversations it does get complicated and mixed up. It was never about stealing a texture it is about coming to my Grid long enough to see the idea and take it back with you. Sure you say everyone does it and it is a form of flattery. Luna's texture is not what this is about. Perhaps the most significant aspect of this issue is the theft of ideas. Textures and assets are not just passive elements; they contribute to the overall narrative and aesthetic of a piece. When someone replicates these elements without permission, they're not just copying pixels—they're co-opting the creative vision and storytelling of the original artist. They're diluting the integrity of the work and robbing it of its unique identity.

In the digital age, where content is easily accessible and infinitely replicable, it's crucial to uphold principles of respect, integrity, and ethical conduct. Instead of focusing solely on the act of stealing textures or assets, let's shift our attention to the broader issue of respecting creative ideas and the individuals behind them. Let's foster a culture of collaboration, attribution, and appreciation—a culture where ideas are celebrated, not stolen. Because ultimately, it's not about the texture—it's about the idea. It is not okay to take free items found online and sell them on the Kitely market either. The terms say for personal use, not for commercial. To say well my clients don't know how to create the models so they buy from me, I add my purple textures and they love them. Makes no difference. Not for commercial use means just that. I see one model being sold that is questionable Luna shows a license and creator there which conflicts with this which clearly states for Private use so which license is accurate? When there is a question as to where the original came from ethically you should not resell it without knowing the original creators TOS.

3rd Rock Grid's Great Central Lake

When Estate Manager @JayR Cela invited me to see his 3x3 Water Region - Great Central Lake he mentioned how it is set up for boating fun and racing.
Please add this to your map: Central Lake. Take some time out and explore this great place!
I have rebranded the grid to Three Hills Grid. When we first named the grid we thought to name it after the magazine and since then, I have seen another grid named Virtual Grid, so as to eliminate any confusion I thought it would be best to rename it. I have always thought of Black Hills Gold as Three Hills Gold (the trio color of the gold) so naming it Three Hills Grid seemed right. The address is the same, I may also change that in the future.

While the heart and soul of Virtual-HG magazine remain unchanged, this rebranding is a testament to my profound passion for crafting intricate jewelry pieces.

Ferd Frederix-BS News-Sunday Funnies hot off the press!! There is an inworld edition of the magazine you can pick up at the VHG HQ on the third floor.
A newly discovered supernova can be watched as it develops in real-time, online and for free.

This particular galaxy and supernova can be difficult to view in the night sky without the right conditions or telescope, however. Luckily, the Virtual Telescope Project will livestream the cosmic explosion on its website and YouTube channel as it develops via its power robotic telescopes based in Rome, Italy. The online event will kick off at 6:30 p.m. EDT (2230 GMT) on Friday, May 26 2023. Note that this event is weather dependent and could be delayed or cancelled due to poor conditions.

SheaButter: Now this is just virtual...right? Cause in real Betelgeuse, is unknown when this is to happen. It blew once in 2019 and settled in 2020, back to it's regular brightness. Next one is up to approx. 100... 1 years ago

Fred's Africa Gateway added to VHG Region HUB is so very cool, I love this so much and would like to extend an invitation to anyone who would like to add their Grid Gateway to my VHG region! It is a great way for others to get a taste of your grid or sim- Teleports on a sign is very cool but having a Gateway people can feel the ambiance of your grid. If you would like to add your gateway to my VHG region I would need a 1x1 OAR of your Gateway. When creating your gateway, choose your grid's theme, also add an information board of the highlights you have at your grid so that when people visit your gateway they get a sense of what you are all about! Please consider adding your gateway to the VHG HUB!
