Nobody knew about it because I didn't tell anyone. It just wasn't worth the effort. When I went to see the sim, I did tell Babybear. She was upset about it, but by that time the sim was nearly completed. If I expected her to demand a different texture or builder, it would have been another month of work and they would have had to find another builder. I wouldn't expect that from her. She was super kind, respectful, and sweet about the entire thing. If proof is needed, I've got plenty of emails, transaction logs, and I can whip out the textures.
But there comes a point when you realize that shit happens and sometimes bickering over things only makes it worse for everyone. I would have given the textures to Babybear if she had asked for them, so it's no real skin off my back. Just a shady builder. Oh well.


I could be jumping -way- out of my zone here, but I'm pretty sure the sim -isn't- Babybear's. She's just helping out in the admin arena. I don't know if she could have called the shots on that one even if she wanted to.

Shady builder aside- and Sabina, I think you handled that really well. You let folks know so they can watch out for this dude, and you were assertive enough to speak to Babybear about it, but then you didn't let it ruin your impression of the sim as a whole, and you've been pretty chill about it, which is frankly impressive as hell- I've popped into Ar a few more times.

I've seen a few people there I recognize and like, so that's always a good sign. :)

I really like just wandering around in the city sightseeing and people watching. No roleplay thus far on my main or any of my alts, but I haven't put myself out there really yet or tried entering a scene or tossing out the first post, just mainly wandered around and explored.

That armor is pretty spectacular. I can see why everyone's wearing it. Never heard of the designer before, Iroas? Whoever he/she is, that's pretty good work there.

Can't quite decide what I want to play there. I have a FW, a slave, and a doodtoon. And kinda unsure which to dive in with. Guess I try 'em all a few times and see which one I end up getting roleplay with first.

I hate to be the broken record, but just want to make it uber clear Ar is -not- Babybear's sim. She 'just works there'. I don't want anyone getting any weird impressions about her...

...that, and she'd spit nails if people thought she let other people build 'her sims'. :)

Yeah, as far as I know Babybear is just helping out. Cali owns it. I knew Babybear from another sim though, so I felt more comfortable speaking to her with it.

I saw you today, Tamar! You were OOC though, so I didn't pester.

@Sabina Heh, yeah- I sent in an app but haven't been approved yet, so not sure if I can RP yet, or if the app's just for the Land Group for folks who want to rent there. So have had my Observer's tag on for a few days.

@Ost :heart: :grind:

I've seen a lot of people RP without being part of the main group and I don't see how that could possibly be an issue. The Land group usually is just allowing you to set your home and get OOC notifications of updates an events. Just cause you don't live in New Jersey don't mean you don't get to interact with people just you won't get the discount at the community pool.

The design of the sim I enjoy, a bit sad about what Sabina said to be honest, didn't think a builder would discredit himself like that when all he had to do was ask you :|
I like the fact you can easily lost and that not something I dislike because it really makes you work hard to get to one place to the other.

And my explorations of Ar endeth abruptly. LOL

Owner's apparently nursed a grudge against me for my posts on a previous thread about his previous incarnation of Ar and reminded me tonight by linking me to the offending thread:

http://www.goreanforums.net/viewtopic.php?f=54&t=8425&start=140 if anyone's curious.

I didn't think I said anything particularly offensive, and had pretty much forgotten about it but apparently he had not. Not sure why he had to tap dance around the issue instead of just IM'ing me to tell me my app was denied or even putting me on a ban list, but oh wells. Told me I could roleplay there but that I couldn't join the group. Me, I told him I don't play anywhere I'm not wanted, and wished him luck with his sim. I won't be going back, on any of my avatars, and I will now be sure to avoid any sim he's related to.

Wish everyone playing there the best, though!
