Hey folks! We’re making some changes to the Fawns Sim.
We’re spending ~L$65,000 ($250+ USD) monthly for this sim alone, and let’s not even talk about the multiple servers we have that actually power the fawns.
We don’t need a full sim to run Fawns, Fennux, etc. – we never did – we just wanted a bigger presence in the community. Over time we expect Fennux, Fawns, PayHUD and future properties to start sharing homesteads/sims/etc. It just makes sense.
Keep in mind, this is not the final form factor for the “Fawns Sim”, it’s just the current form that makes the most sense right now. We’ll probably redesign the sim to better encompass the ambience of Fawns, Fennux, etc, but for now we’re instantly saving money that can go towards product development instead of literally nowhere beneficial to our company. (And keep in mind, we still have satellite locations for LE releases, new starter packs, etc.)
This is something we’ve been wanting to do for a while, but it takes a lot of time/effort to move things around. Fortunately, Daemon is around daily now, so we’re finally getting back on track for what needs to be done. Less money wasted + more time to be around = more content showing up.
That being said, please landmark http://slurl.com/secondlife/PayHUD/150/136/23 for the Fawns Sim from now on. The Fawns sim will not be around for much longer and we want to make sure everyone is aware of the current location.
(We will probably change the homestead name from PayHUD to something else that better embodies all of our SL Properties, but for now it’s staying that.)
