The grids have all reported being quiet this month. Tropicana is no different. The number of active public grids hit a record high of 382 this month, but usage stats were down across the board. The number of active users dropped by 3,844 since this time last month, to 37,301....... click on the link https://vr.confabulatory.net/category/zetaworlds/

Most of the hub regions in Tropicana are under 10,000 prims. They use good quality mesh and keep scripts as low as possible. We do this for a reason. Ever visited one of those shopping malls only to find you can hardly move or download anything? Lag is something we all hate. Most laggy regions are high prim and using too much server resources. We love our lag free sailing and flying environment and we strive to keep it that way. Private regions are allowed 15000 prims. Anything over this will need a separate payment. Additionally if your region uses excessive server resources due to it being commercial, a club, or containing too many scripts then you may be asked to make additional payments. This is only fair. All our regions are 3x3 in size for a reason. They all fit neatly together as a grid and do not collide with different sizes that make border crossings haphazard and hit and miss.

If you migrated here from Second Life then you are already ahead of the game. It is very similar. The one big difference is the cost and availablity of land and products. For the most part everything is free. The other thing that often confuses people is the fact that opensim is a collection of grids. Imagine lots of Independent 'Second Life' worlds all inter connected by hops. You can teleport straight out of your chosen grid into a new one and back again. You can go shopping or exploring a wide range of community grids. How do you find them? You look them up on opensim world. Their website is located here: https://opensimworld.com/ Need a new avatar? At Tropicana we have a 'Complete Avatars' store which is located at Neptune's Mall at the store number 4A Need a home? Look no further. We have a wide range of homes and land at Tropicana and it is all free!

Radio Tropicana is hosted by Abyss Shoutcast Hosting. We regularly change and rotate the music on our radio channel and residents of Tropicana can send a request to upload their favourite artists. All we need is the music clip address from You Tube. Send this to Mike Townsend on a notecard and it will get uploaded to the radio station. Our radio station land url is: http://stream.abyss-shoutcast.com:4400 You can either paste that in your parcel details media page so that it plays on your own land or you can just paste the address into any web browser.

The VIP properties are for invitation only via a manager and they are available to long standing tenants or residents of Tropicana. Each island comes with its own property and private space. So long as you continue to be a regular member of the Tropicana community the property is yours to keep. All we ask is that we see you around from time to time. Owners of the VIP properties will also be VIP group members.

Each rental box shows you how many prims you are entitled to when you rent. If you are unsure then visit the properties section on this website or go to the Estate Office in world and you can obtain this information.

Thank you for considering a property rental with us. All properties are free and provided on a first come first served basis. You just need to find the rent box near where you land and rent the property and click on it to rent. You can add more weeks to a maximum of 4 weeks by right clicking on the box and extending the time. Please do not let your rental box expire or someone will claim your property. The properties are self administered so there is nothing we can do if you let your rental run out. When you have rented a property please contact either Mike Townsend, Jon Sun or Chad Deischer. We will then add you to Residents Group so that you can build and set home on your new land. We will also make sure that the property is shown in red at the Estate Office so that people will know that the property is no longer available. Once you have your Residents Tag feel free to use the group chat and say hello. We have regular events that can be found on our website. We also have a very busy club the Tropicana Club. We look forward to meeting you and getting to know you. Further Information about Tropicana _____________________________________ Welcome to our community. There is a lot to explore here.

We don't care where you come from, or worry about your race or religion and we don't want to discuss politics either. If you want to wander around naked, feel free. This is your right.
