Transcripts are boring to read through, and although are available upon request, won't be posted here, only the notes.

Sim Layout

  • Due to permissions issues, the original plan for having multiple instances of a 4-sim estate was turned down (understandably)
  • After reflecting on the experience with last year's birthday celebrations, and taking the population increase into account, a 9-sim layout with 2 sims per period with an additional past/future sim in the center would be best.
    • A rectangular 8 sim layout was suggested, but after rezzing a quick plywood model for a 9 sim layout, it was decided that having to walk over 768m to get from Y1 to Y4 would probably be a bad thing.
  • To allow for the full (tasteful) freedom of expression for the non-PG communities in SL, it was decided that since we have 2 sims per year, that one should be PG, and the other Mature.
