Here is our "Private Sim" covenant, please read before starting your rental.
Also refer to “About Land” description for the individual land rental conditions.
Feel free to contact Victor (victoredenfield) if you have any questions or requests.
1. Getting started
・Open About Land and buy a parcel. You shall be deemed to have accepted the terms and conditions at the time of purchase.
・Right click the rental box in the parcel and pay your rental fee.
＊The box will move outside the parcel on payment. It will be within 10m from the original position. If you have trouble finding it feel free to ask.
・Be sure to pay within 10 minutes from the purchase. If no payments are made within 10 minutes, the parcel will be reclaimed without refund.
・To see your remaining time, right click the box, choose "Touch" and click “Time Left” on the dialogue menu.
・When the time remaining is three days or less, you will receive a message “This is a reminder about your rental…” from the box. If you do not log in to Second Life for extended time periods, please make sure your account is set to receive offline IMs.

・If you take multiple parcels in our private sims, 3% of the total fee will be discounted. 5% off for 4 parcels or more.
・If you rent adjoining multiple parcels, those parcels can be joined.
＊For this option, you need to choose 4-week payment and continue your rental at least 8 weeks.
・Please note that rent is not refundable.
2. Objects on the ground.
○On private sims, we offer parcels with and without houses and furniture.
・On parcels with a house and furniture, you can use them the way they are.
If you wish to use your own house and/or furniture, you can return the pre-installed objects. As long as you follow this covenant and the individual parcel instructions, no report is needed.
If you are not sure whether or not your building abides by the covenant, feel free to ask.
・On parcels without a house and/or furniture, you may place your own. Or, we will provide a house and furniture for you if you request it. Please see this link for details → http://bit.ly/2keYfTC
・You may return, move or edit the pre-installed objects.
・The appearance of your objects should be matched with the atmosphere of the sim. If you are not sure whether or not your objects are appropriate, feel free to ask.
・Refrain from placing objects that could be an eyesore for other residents. For example, extremely colorful object, glowing object, large object, hovering object in the air.
＊Some objects can be placed even if included in above. Please ask before placement.
・Your objects must be placed within the parcel borders. Unnatural objects such as signs or floating texts must be at least 10m away from the parcel borders.
・Floating texts reach further as the object gets bigger. The size of the scripted object must be 1 cubic meter or smaller.
・Objects such as boxes of products you purchased or unfinished creations must not be left on the ground.
・If you use a rezbox when you place a building, do not leave the building with texts or particles shown on the objects.
Some rezboxes have a feature such as "Stealth" or similar option, with which you can turn off the particles.
・Temp-rezzers (Rezzers that use temporary prims mainly to reduce land impact) are not allowed.
・Do not block waterways with your objects. Your objects may come in to the waterways to some extent only if they are phantom.
Unnatural looking buildings are not allowed. Buildings that do not match the atmosphere of the sim such as ruins or haunted houses are also inappropriate.
＊Example images of inappropriate structures→http://bit.ly/2fBbkRO
Allowed size of your building (width, depth, height) vary depending on parcels. Be sure to check the links below.

Oceanfront Parcels 101～120 Riverfront Parcels 201～212 Hilltop Parcels 301～313
＊ Although the building code is made for renters to live comfortably without inconvenience to adjacent parcel renters, we do offer some flexibility. Please ask us to consider your case prior to making your decisions.
Do not put objects such as furniture or vehicles on the roof. Objects made for roof such as antenna or weathercock may be allowed as long as the highest part is not higher by 3 meters than the height limit of the house.
Protuberances such as chimneys must be no more than 3 meters higher than the roof.
You may place up to 3 plants that are up to 4 meters higher than the building as long as their position and/or shape do not obscure the view of other residents. Other than plants no objects can exceed the building height limit.
Leaves or branches of your plants must not encroach to other residents’ parcels. They may encroach to common areas between residents’ parcels to some extent.
・Off-sim items (waves, waterfalls, rocks or stars) are not allowed because they could affect other residents’ view. If you wish to place off-sim items, contact us beforehand. Off-sim items placed without permission might be removed.
Basically particles are not allowed. Natural particles such as leaves that fall vertically, flame of campfire or waterfall splash are acceptable.
Smoke from chimneys or campfires must be turned off. It could go into other residents’ parcels or block other residents’ view. Smoke is allowed only when they don’t affect other residents’ view or the landscaping of the sim
Weather systems are not allowed. Rain particles may be permitted only in a small hidden area of your land.
・Breedables and pets
You can put breedable animals on the ground up to 2 pieces. Other breedables must be put in the sky. You can put up to 5 pieces total per parcel.
Moving pets can bump into things and lag the sim badly. Please set the moving range as small as possible or put your pets to sleep (turn the movement off) when you are not around.
Furniture that contains adult animations are allowed only if they appear to be normal furniture. Furniture that is obviously intended for adult use or any adult/porn contents other than furniture must be in the sky and inside your building.
・About Land settings
If you allow "Build" or "Object Entry" to anyone, you must turn on auto return on the "Objects" tab. Return time must be 1-30. If the time is 0 or more than 30, the risk that someone else would put objects on your parcel gets higher.
＊Once you set the auto return time, all pre-installed objects will be returned. If you would like to set auto return time and yet keep the objects we offer, please consult us first.
3. Sky Use
・Use the sky platform and the teleporters we have set up on each parcel.
・If you replace the platform with yours, it should be placed at the same height.
・The highest part of your objects should not be higher than 40 meters from the platform.
・Your objects in the sky may encroach to outer area by several meters.
・Although there are no detailed building codes in the sky, please refrain from placing things that may make other residents feel uncomfortable. e.g. dirty things, something that associate with crime, swear words, explicit porn contents outside the building.
・If you use scripts that emit sound or text such as security system or greeter, confine the active area within your parcel.
・Do not use spy scripts, scripts that may consume a lot of resources or any other scripts that may cause trouble.
・Privacy screens are not allowed. Instead, by unchecking the box “Avatars on other parcels can…” on About Land Options tab, you can block view and chat from other parcels.
・Ban-Lines are not allowed. Instead, you have the right to manage ban lists of About Land Access tab.
・Security Orbs are allowed. Please give visitors at least 5 seconds before ejected. Please add our staff (VictorEdenfield and TeamDvine) to the access list.
・Allowed terraforming range is +0.5m and －5m from the original height. Be sure not to terraform the way landscaping is damaged badly.
・Be sure to uncheck the box “Edit Terrain” on About Land Options tab. If checked, others may destroy your terraforming either by mistake or on purpose.
・Part of the ground at your parcel may be rough and terraforming may be hard. We provide prims textured with terrain textures to amend the roughness. The giver is at the left corner of Private Sim section in the office.
