Fox! NCmon Jewell is my name here. I put monica but there were already many taking this name. So I combined my chinese and english names.
Before I reached that section of appearance, i already mustered how to fly, hover and take objects.
I changed my appearance of the avatar. I made her skirt spoof, make heels and edit the skin color.
Does the character resemble myself?
1) It kind of does, because I love animals. This was the only avatar of animal so I chose it. I have experimented with the clothing, shoes and eye color.
I drove a jeep on Orientation island. It went too slow for normal driving. I would like a fast race car if I could afford it! flying is more exciting.
2) I would like to be a brave explorer and that is what I am doing here. Genderwise it is the same, female. I like to dress with unusual wear. These boots are cool. Although I look mild on the outside, I actually like doing new and exciting things.
I took some hellfire clothes. They were free, so I took the bundle and put it on.I tried to create things on the lawn, but the notice said ‘owner does not allow it’. A structure gold wire came out. I realize that people can earn money by lying by the pool. When I logged out to stop the comp lagging, I was sitting by the pool.
I hope to earn more money by making objects. That is the primary objective I usually aim for when I game. Money is the resource, just like in reality. You need it for basic clothes and food etc.
Problems I faced
I am a gamer but I think Secondlife is hard to navigate. Today I could not see the usual big map.
I did not know how to read the map and could not find my way around. That is why I took a long time to go around Orientation and finish the exercise. The menus are too wordy. I noticed my friends were only stuck editing their appearance. Perhaps these features can be modified?
I found it so tedious to read everything before I could proceed.
I think the cooler features are making things (yet to succeed in doing), building, flying and teleporting. Secondlife is not really a game. Games are exciting and much easier to do. Instead I think it is a simulation of real places. Malls, fields, casinoes, discos are where humans hang out.
In the next mission, I will talk about why secondlife is not a game.
