I have long contemplated what it would be like to have a full sim to play with, but the thought of renting a full sim was a bit overwhelming. Finding somewhere stable to rent it is one thing, but buying 30,000 L$ every week on the exchange is beyond what I want to do. But if you own a sim, you pay in real $ directly to LindenLab. So I started looking for a sim to buy. Buying a sim second hand is much cheaper than buying a new sim from LindenLab, and they are very helpful when it comes to transferring and moving, so that is what happened.
