ROLEPLAY INSIGHTS OF THE WEEK: Making every prim count!


Just rented that cute apartment on Maple St. and you start unpacking but before you know it, you're out of prim!


Here are a few tips to help manage prim count when you want to squeeze a hog into a dress:


Link your mesh prims. There is some physics to why this work but we won't be explaining it here. Just think of it as magic. BUT also pay attention. Depending on the mesh prim, there may be a wonky one that when link creates the LI to increase.


Resize mesh prim. Again, there's math. But resizing can either add or take away from LI so keep an eye out for that.


Shop low prim! We are on a roleplay sim so think of it as stage dressing rather that setting up your homestead. For affordable options check out the weekend sales around the grid. There are some great finds!


Remember your prim etiquette! Staying within your prim limit allows us to do more with the space we have, host unique events, and lets your fellow renters make full use of their allocation. If you put something extra out like a vehicle, make sure you pick it up after rping.


You can click on your rental box to keep track of your prim count or ask a community leader to help you figure it out!



Enjoy your week Unnatural!
