In honour of the Second Life Community Convention in Boston, Prim Perfect has put together a special bonus issue.
Over the last four issues, we have been providing special coverage of Linden Homes, the new initiative from Linden Lab, to give all premium members a free home of their own to furnish and enjoy. The Homes occupy small plots in themed regions, and each has 117 prims available (the prim’cost’ of the home is not included in that total). Owners are currently able to choose from four themes: Meadowbrook (contemporary), Tahoe (mountain A-frames), Shareta Osumai (Oriental) and Elderglen (Fantasy). Within these broad themes, owners can further choose from a variety of sturdy, well-designed homes – four different fantasy and oriental types, six mountain types and nine contemporary types.
Since the inception of the scheme, we have been providing special coverage.
We asked top designers to choose a Linden Home and furnish it – and so far, Colleen Desmoulins of The Loft, LaDonna Upshaw of Sweet Romance Furniture, Dellybean North of True North Designs and Elle Kirshner of Second Spaces have all provided amazing examples of what can be squeezed out of 117 prims! In each issue we feature their designs – and a broader interview with the designer behind it.
We also asked readers to send us pictures and their accounts of their Linden Homes … and we are featuring one a month.
Now, for SLCC, we have drawn together this coverage into a magazine special – and we hope you will enjoy reading it – and looking at some of the designs for yourselves!
So how can I get Prim Perfect?
If you prefer to read the magazine online but not inworld, there are choices. Firstly, there’s the wonderful Calaméo system, which allows you to moves smoothly through the pages, giving you the feeling of reading a real magazine. Our Linden Home Special here – and please do leave a comment!
But, if you like to download your magazines to read as you commute to work, or in the bath, or wherever, you can also obtain a standard pdf for downloading and printing.
