I have decided to share a little secret with you... I love D A M A G E Sandbox. There are several levels, with different themes, and it's great for taking pictures.
I think the best way of telling you about this sandbox is to copy here the note that you can get at the sandbox:
Welcome to Damage Sandbox. Here are the answers to a some common questions, and a few not so common.
WHAT IS THIS PLACE?
It's a Sandbox.
WHAT IS A SANDBOX?
A place where anybody can build things temporarily. This sandbox allows you to build and keep things here for approximately 6 hours and then it all gets returned to you if you forget it here. Sometimes we return stuff manually. Don't worry there is a warning system for when we do that so you have a chance to pick up your stuff.
WHAT CAN I DO HERE?
Practice building, sort through your inventory, hang with friends, listen to the music, (there's a radio changer on the DJ booth on level 1) build stuff, you can even set your home to here if you want. Just remember you can't actually build anything permanent. Make sure you see the new lake on level 5 it's pretty cool.
WHY IS IT FREE?
Because somebody with a kind heart built it.
WHY DID THEY DO THAT?
After you've been in SL for a while, you find yourself wanting to give back to the community and you feel sorry for people who are starting out with nothing. This is our way of doing that. However, it's not completely selfless. It helps generate traffic numbers for this plot of land (which brings in more customers to Damage) and we also benefit from people who wander into Damage from the Sandbox and do a little shopping. So... please. Do a little shopping. It's okay if you don't though.
It's a store that sells clothing and stuffs. If you look behind the sandcastle you'll see it. It's pretty big. We sell clothes for women mostly. Some for men too. Also gadgets such as the Damage Invisible Illuminator. Very cool. Also the little dragonflies you may see flying around. If you can catch one you can buy it.
WHY IS IT CALLED DAMAGE?
Because it sounds awesome and it's easy to remember. Try it? See? You remembered.
WHAT ARE THE RULES HERE?
We hate rules, but from experience we've had to add a few. Here they are:
1. Be kind to each other
2. Don't rez huge stuff on the first level (there are other levels - look for the TP buttons).
3. Don't make your own floating platforms, use the ones provided.
4. Rez stuff only within the walls of the sandbox. (we have neighbors)
5. Clean up after yourself if it is a big mess.
6. Use common sense. (like don't be naked or have sex here or try to sell stuff)
HOW CAN I GET LINDENS? (SL's fake money)
We have three ways:
1. You can click the free money giver (it's inside the store. It's usually green, but if not wait a while.) There is a 1 in 1000 chance of getting 1000L this way. Better chances at many smaller prize amounts. It's free to play but you have to join Damage Club group.
2. You can work at Damage modeling clothes. There's a metal box with the instructions inside Damage. Look near the fish pond.
3. You can be a statue. Sit on one of our statue pedestals and it gives you a free statue skin. You can hide there and work in the sandbox at the same time. Why would you do this? I have no idea. It's cool though.
WHAT ELSE IS HERE?
Well, there's a DJ booth and we host a free stream. The idea is to attract DJ's who would like to practice here. Click the sign for info on it.
Also in our sandbox we have a free texture giver, a free prim giver, pose stands, work tables, freebies (in the huge sand bucket) and even more freebies inside Damage.
WOW. IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE?
Why, yes. The sandbox has five levels. They are all themed, because we thought that would be cool. If you look just in front of the sandcastle you'll see several large buttons. We change the look of these buttons from time to time so we won't bother describing them. They are probably several different colors. Just click a button (or sit on it) to teleport.
THAT'S COOL! THERE CAN'T BE ANYTHING ELSE... CAN THERE?
Actually there can. We also offer a free changing area, which is also available by teleport. You'll see the Teleports scattered around the main floor and near the other teleport buttons on all levels (they are PINK). It is a multi room changing area with pose stands, lockable doors and even backgrounds you can use to photograph your avatar with. Please, if you're going to be naked, do it in one of these rooms.
OKAY THIS IS GETTING RIDICULOUS. IS THAT IT?
No we lied. There's also a big green button for protection against GRIEFERS. Griefers are SL residents who have nothing better to do besides cause grief for other people. Usually it's in the form of a million floating objects flying all over the place, or guns or explosions or noise or just being jerks. If this happens to you in our sandbox, sit on something and click the big green button.
I'M GETTING A TWITCH. WHAT ELSE COULD THERE BE? IS THAT IT?
No sorry there's still more. On level 2 (the Lot) there is a very cool dumpster that may contain more than meets the eye.... hmmmmm.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THIS AMAZING STUFF?
Dave Carmichael. He's awesome, obviously.
HOW CAN I REPAY MR. CARMICHAEL FOR ALL THIS AWESOMENESS?
It costs about $200 in real money every month to keep this place going, so obviously money helps, but please feel free to shop in our store if you get tired of building. There are over 500 items on several levels and rooms to choose from. Most items are transfer. Damage Virtual Clothing was established in 2006.
I DON'T HAVE ANY MONEY. HOW CAN I HELP THEN?
Bring your friends to the sandbox, spread the word about all the cool stuff here. Just enjoy.
