Second Life's Original Sin

Good Things Come...

Yes, the new Hard Alley is being delayed.  The builders are taking great care to create a really awesome place for you to play, and that takes time.

This rebuild is not going to be easy.  We're not taking a bunch of mesh buildings off Marketplace and slapping them down and calling it a rebuild.  The new Hard Alley will be nearly 90% original mesh buildings, created specifically for Hard Alley.

Some of these new buildings are easier than others and take less time.  But the iconic buildings... the Club... Lynden Labs... City Hall... the Burlesque Hall... those are more complex and require more thought and planning and modeling and texturing.

I hope you will bear with us as we progress.  Our builders, Jaimy Hancroft of Death Row Designs and Tito DeVinna of Rule 34, are doing an incredible job and it is obvious from the work they have done that this is a labor of love for them.

I wish I could share more with you.  I wish I could show you what they have accomplished so far, because it's amazing and I can't wait to see it all finished.

I can tease you with one shot... one glimpse at the new Hard Alley.  I hope it makes you go "Wow!" like it did me when I first saw it.

Good things come to those who wait.

Thanks for all your efforts to improve our experience on the Hard Alley...

I'm a big fan of it and even if I don't visit so often like I would like to, I enjoy my time when I'm there, I used to like and hang around the Cigar club, the one with a pool table and the Rundown motel for gangs and the sewer are in the vicinity.

If I may suggest, if you are not already working on something similar, I would like suggest you to create a clubhouse for a OMC (outlaw motorcycle club) for the one percenters - like myself - to hang out more.
I know that prims and bandwidth use is a general concern, but I hope you can find the right balance for everything.
Thanks again

Ghiby, I think you will be pleasantly surprised. We are working on many facets of the alley and hoping to accommodate all styles and wants while also acclimating to a new theme. There will be something for everyone. ;)
