This topic was brought up by Tor at the last LUC meeting (under Miscellaneous), see the transcript here: https://forums.slcds.info/viewtopic.php?f=67&t=9644
Let me give you an excerpt of the related contributions to the discussion [2020/11/08 12:56]:
Almut Brunswick: Tor, what about the project to set up a yacht club, a harbour master office and a light house on the other side of the channel? *ducks*
Tor Karlsvalt: oh well that is still in my head. I did ask LL for some info. Not sure if this is the right forum.
Almut Brunswick: Ah yes, can you report a bit about it? We can record it under Miscellaneous
Tor Karlsvalt: but I do think imo, that we should consider moving the sims to a good location connected to Linden seas. Just looking atm.
Almut Brunswick: Tor, I think that is something we should discuss in the new RA.
Tor Karlsvalt: And SL appears to be in flux as to continents. - I agree Almut. Belongs to RA. BTW, LL has added a huge archipelago on Friday.
Almut Brunswick: It is nonetheless not wrong to get this information here because the ladies around here are the future planners and implementers when it should become true.
Em Warden (emwarden): The bridge in LA was made extra high to allow sailing underneath...
Tor Karlsvalt: It appears rumours of connecting the continents might be true. This string of island is almost halfway between Belli and Satori.
Almut Brunswick: Em, yes!
Delia Lake: is that possible now, to move sims close to Linden water? For a while it was, then later it wasn’t.
Tor Karlsvalt: Well that is what I asked. Did that yesterday. they have not responded.
Sudane Erato: A few years ago LL instituted a "Community" project where you could apply to attach. I don't know what became of that.
Lilith Ivory: I remember we had discussions about this.
Tor Karlsvalt: I wonder too Sudane. I can share what I wrote in a ticket. One sec, need to put it in a notecard.
Delia Lake: /me would love to be attached to Linden sea.
Em Warden (emwarden): We are very grateful for your investigation into this matter, Tor
Sudane Erato: well... just be very cautious regarding what we would see.
Almut Brunswick: Oh yes, then we would be easier recognized and that would give our municipal development much more dynamic.
Sudane Erato: perhaps. We must be careful.
Almut Brunswick: because the harbour is nice, no doubt.
Delia Lake: say more please Sudane. I know you investigated this before.
Em Warden (emwarden): What are your concerns, Sudane?
Lilith Ivory: I could imagine it´s a problem that most of our regions are not exactly sea level.
Em Warden (emwarden): Ah
Sudane Erato: many many... I have spent 14 years dealing with these issues... but that’s a different topic for another time... I look forward to hearing what Tor finds out.
Tor Karlsvalt: Well this is just an exploratory effort
Almut Brunswick: I propose to stop right here and to pursue the topic in the RA, in the Forum and presumably in the next LUC.
Sudane Erato: if you wish we can organize a special event.
Tor Karlsvalt: My goal at the moment is to just see what is possible.
Sudane Erato: and I can discuss in detail running an estate connected in some way to the mainland.
It might be useful to share the text of Tor’s ticket here, and the answers the Lindens might kindly give in their benevolence at some indefinite future date. Would you be so kind to share it here, Tor, or give permission to share to those who got your notecard already?
Other than that I particularly invite Sudane to share some outlines of her knowledge on this topic.
Further we might want to have a special event to become acquainted with this matter and foster public knowledge and awareness.
I think we all like this idea at first sight, but would like to be clear about the downsides before we let ourselves in for the Linden Waters.
