I like the idea of Second Life, of being able to build 3D environments, and walk around and interact with them. What I don't like is that if one particular company goes bust, all the content in SL will vanish with it.

Thus, I've started toying with a version of Second Life that doesn't rely on any computers other than my own: "OpenSim". I've thrown together a simple little environment to experiment in, using some of the OS resources I've found. Here, have a few screenshots: https://www.datapacrat.com/OpenSim/ .

The one thing that I don't have, that I /want/ to have, is the rat-lady avatar I've been running around in Second Life in for the last few years. That avatar formed the basis of my icon here, and the entire "Eichsfeldia" setting, and all the comics and stories set there that you can find in my FurAffinity gallery. I haven't been able to figure out how to export it from SL, and even if I could, there are copyright issues. Not to mention that that avatar includes a few non-physical bits, like the animation-override that makes the way she walks look nice.

So, I'm writing this journal in search of two things: anyone who can help me rebuild my SL avatar for OpenSim; and anyone with any SL-like content at all that they'd be willing to let me play with in OS. If either of those descriptions matches you, or anyone you know, I'd love to hear from you. :)

> Do you have a unified list anywhere of your stuff?

I'm afraid not, though just about everything from the last few years is likely either in the galleries, or mentioned in the journals, of my FurAffinity account.
