The New Media Arts board of directors agreed to add my collection of Arcadia/Aley builds to their libraries, and host it at Kitely grid. I've been collecting for years from my own imports, all the stuff +virtual christine had at Sanctuary grid, and whatever else I could scarf up around the HG before it disappears. I wanted to donate it to an organization that should be around for a while. -- Ada Radius

Cost to the nonprofit, about $250/year, so some fundraising buttons are out at the landing point. NMA is a US 501(c)(3) nonprofit with an independent board - no one on the voting board gets paid. -- Ada Radius
Slum city signs
Many door scripts are borked, so I'm working to change physics shapes on doors so buildings are at least navigable, and to cut down on server load. There are slam bit errors, I think from the OAR backup and re-upload, but also probably because I got these things from a lot of different grids running different OS versions, boxed up and not rezzed out for years. Lotta scripts are missing or don't work. Linkset order, don't want to even think about it, though I did get the Flotsam and Clockwork fountains working. I am no scripter. --Ada Radius

It sure is nice to see this stuff out again. :) :D Amazing all the awesome people who managed to get stuff out of SL or did restorations or mesh conversions. and made it available in hg OS. There is a list of names in a notecard at the landing point - if I missed anyone, please let me know. If you have builds I don't have and want out here, please contact me, or contact New Media Arts - ctoATnewmediaarts.org or infoATnewmediaarts.org --AdaRadius

Some objects have been restored and rescripted, most need rescripting and reanimating.

Everything is free to copy. You may do anything you like with them, except you may not sell them or their derivatives.

                  1. Wonderful snaps, thank you! Way better than my snaps. Selby came flying by while I was struggling with the space sim cube. Which I ended up converting to mesh so it can be resized more easily without crashing one's viewer. It's out there now, near the landing point.

                  2. It is a shame that the entire collection isnt available as a downloadable oar or iar file, for others to use and enjoy.
