Just recently saw this hrm...what to call it, game?  MMORG?  on MSN and was curious who on craftster is using this.  Do you create crafts on the game and sell them like you do in the real world?

I just found out about it this morning, but I'm going to look into it more!

Sounds addicting. Cheesy

My friend told me about that game. We checked it out but the only people we found on there were perverts. Of course, we were on second life late at night, but still...
I kind of refuse to play it because

1) My computer is too full, so its too slow to play it
2) Perverts on there
3) Nothing on there is real. Whoever made it up was brilliant, but I refuse to pay real money for what turns out to be nothing, hence why whoever started that whole thing was a genius, because there are people out there who will spend real money on virtual things.

I prefer to craft in the real world so someone is actually getting something beautiful for their hard-earned dough.

I think you bring up a valid point.  Its an entire economy based on, well, nothing at all. Just the imaginiation. 

Perverts, prffff, that doesnt' surprise me actually.  The article on MSN was actually referencing it due to online dating etc.

Still it's very interesting idea and I would be curious to see any screen shots of what anyone has created.

Perverts need handcrafted items, too! Cheesy

I've been in Second Life for about 2.5 years. I've sold a few photographs there, but not by any means enough to make a "living", however for artists there can be an okay income if you can get your stuff out there.

Everything in SL is built with what they call prims - these are a bit like building blocks in various shapes that you can stick together to create an object. You can then add a texture, in the case of art that texture would be a picture of your work.

Bascially anything you want to make, you can make and sell (yes, do watch out for perverts). My main income source is teddy bears, which i sell for about 60cents RL money. There's a strong creative community hidden behind all the strip clubs, I promise!
