INSILICO

After meeting with the Lindens in regards to InSilico's future, we have been able to come to a deal that will hopefully get us to a point where we can keep the sims open into the future, and with any luck...self-sustaining again. It's going to be a lot of work, and no doubt there will be some issues along the way. Yet this was the best of possible options to get InSilico open again soon...and within the control of those that have been involved with it for years.

I'm not too sure if I am allowed to discuss the terms of the deal. To be on the safe side I won't get into it the fine details. Just suffice to say that we've been given a period of time to hopefully recoup the losses that this lock-out has incurred for the sims. Once the transfer of ownership documents are received and completed, the sims will be reopened again (they did mention this could take a day or two, so please just a little more patience). 

As far as current renters are concerned; your time will be honored and we will work with you in the days ahead as we institute a new rental system. All prims on the sims will remain intact, including Skills'. Once the sims are reopened, you may choose to stay, or you can pick up your prims...While we certainly understand that this situation may have dissuaded you from renting within InSilico, we do hope that you will continue to do so into the future. However please understand that since we do not have access to Skill's account and Linden dollars, we will not be able to issue refunds on current rental times with the current system. Please do NOT try to renew with the current boxes in your rentals. We will be replacing them as soon as possible.  

For those that sent us messages offering financial support, we are very much appreciative. Please do not send any of the admin staff direct Linden payments. If you really want to help, and so choose to, there will be a place to donate at the LZ once the sims are open again. Short of that, the absolute best way you can help is to simply return to RP as normal. Bring your friends, tell people about InSilico and make it the place that people want to visit again. 

Note: There is obviously a strong financial tone to this message, and that's not something that I particularly care for. Unfortunately that's just the reality of the situation. The sims were not locked due to financial reasons, but with the transfer we are now having to start again without the cushion that we had before. Hopefully we will be able to get things back on track in the time that we have been given so that we will not have to worry about it going forward.

Time will tell...

I am really happy to hear that there is a future for insilico. Im sad it had to come to this however. I will gladly help with what I can =).

Ah, filthy lucre, revenue, moola, cash. How to get enough of it to go on ?

After having wandered up and down in Second Life, and back and forth in it,

I return to report that there may be enough RolePlayers remaining to populate

Insilico again (not move here, but RP sometimes) if they and the Game Managers

can come to their own agreement on rules, a word I do not particularly care for,

but have learned the hard way is necessary. The GMs here are more competent

than those elsewhere, they just need to resist the temptation to be Players as well,

and act as referees, generating and maintaining stories on an arc like beads on a string.

There are also a few really good Players out there (I am not one of them) who could help.

I would suggest going back to the old practice of publishing the after-game stories and results

on the Ning, to give readers insight into the RP, and act as advertising for more Players.

Rentals have fallen off of late. Perhaps some remodeling, renovation (to mesh), the ability

to have customized interior textures, and certainly emphasize the view out the window when

placing new units. Blinks, thinks...can that view be beamed to a 'window' Off-Sim ? I would

rather have my apartment on my own land, with a window and TP 'door' (which I would pay for).

All things that were in the works before the lock-out, and hopefully things that can be addressed in a timely manner post. There will also be a degree of freshness sought to be brought into the sims while preserving its legacy. As far as players, anyone that wants to RP a character within scope are more than welcome to come or come back. Everyone will be given a new lease. From there it will be up to the possibilities.

That is good news. In the immortal words of a certain homicidal cyborg, "I'll be back".

Thanks you very much, Abeus. I can not  to live without Insilico... It's my home seven years ago. I wish you lots luck !!!

I have had my financial issues (anyone who feels like helping with medic expenses shall be worshiped). And this is the SOLE reason I couldn't keep my rental; no other. If I ever manage to afford SL again, I will re-rent my apartment there. Or even a space: I have a futuristic mesh, low-li skybox that I adore that I got for Christmas and would not mind setting it up on the skies. I miss Insilico, and the friends in there. I keep up to date with the situation in the best of my capabilities and always wishing for nothing but the sim to remain exactly as it is - although yes, mesh buildings are higher in detail, lower in land impact, and would be a very nice upgrade.

All my love from the hospital.

These are great news. Now I am optimistic, too.

And speaking of returning to roleplay... I am sure there is a place in hell Agis for a mad ambitious scientist...
