Salchicha County - A different kind of residential sim!

Residential Rental Opportunities
Homes are L$2.5/prim
Each rental box comes with 50 or 100 prims included in it.

To Rent:
1. Read Rules
2. Add name to the WAIT LIST
3. Hold tight for an IM. If I don't contact you it means the home was rented, but your name moves up in the list for the next spot available! Add your name to the wait list as often as you'd like. 

IMPORTANT: 
Salchicha County is a neighborhood that focuses on creativity and exploration! Ideal renters here expect and encourage curious visitors and people camming around their house - on purpose! We want to make this sim a museum of ourselves. Privacy is a common theme among SL residencies. If you are looking for a private place to live your pixelated life in secret, I'd suggest finding another place to call home, but enjoy your stay!

What? Why?
Cause it's fun. We want to be able to come to your house (whether you are home or not) and learn about who you are, what you have to say, how you show off your own style. It's almost like the whole sim is a collective art exhibit of every resident. You're welcome to set out freebies or secrets for people to find, decorate to express who you are, decorate in a theme, or just have fun setting up an exhibit of yourself!


RENTAL RULES
These additional rules apply throughout Salchicha County. By paying a rental box, you understand and agree to these rules.

Renting on the Salchicha County sim is available for RC Cluster SL Group members only.
No Refunds
No Subleasing
No Floating Text
No Commercial activity
Homes are Rented AS IS - no changes

• Rent
Rent is due on time and empty spaces can not be saved or reserved. Once your rental time is expired on your rental box, your home is eligible to be rented by someone else. We do not IM to remind you to pay rent.
• Moving Out
Please pick up all your prims at time of move out. Once your rental is up you can leave the Salchicha County SL Group. Be aware that when demand for housing is high, items are subject to be returned to you as soon as someone else rents the home. (Please remember we are not responsible for lost items, please pick up before you move out.)
• Abandonment
If your rental space remains empty for over 48 hours it is considered abandoned. You can pick up a Free RESERVED sign at the welcome center main hub. Abandoned homes will be reclaimed and rental agreements will be terminated without refund.
• Land Impact
Stay within your prim limits. Permanent placement of things that are vastly outside of the aesthetic of the sim will be returned, sometimes without warning. Temporary LI use is OK as long as they are picked up afterwards. If you're unsure of how many prims you have rezzed, please ask a manager. If prim limits are gone over, several or all of your items may be returned to you.
• Vehicles
Vehicles must be parked in your yard or in a parking lot to remain rezzed when you are not on the sim. They count against your prim count of your rental. Unattended vehicles outside of these areas will be returned, and there are several rezzers around the sim you can rent to drive for free.
• Resident & Visitor Agreement
I agree to respect the rights of my fellow Salchichans, to do my best to follow the guidelines put forth by the managers, and to use my best judgment to be fair and practical to others around me.
• Privacy

No Security systems or orbs. Exploration and expression are what this sim is all about, and the private homes on this sim are encouraged to have friendly visitors. Unfriendly visitors, however, should be reported to Redd Columbia. Visitors are not permitted above 400m unless provided with a landmark, TP or invitation.
AS ALWAYS:
Follow Linden Labs TOS, No harassment, griefing, spam or hookers. Full sim rules are posted here and all visitors are subject to them: http://rccluster.blogspot.com/2017/09/salchicha-county-information-rentals.html

-----------------------------
Basic Visitor Expectations
-----------------------------
♦ Doorbells are available on each home next to the door for easy introductions.
♦ Exploring above 400m from ground level anywhere on the sim is not permitted unless directed.


Rental Details
You do NOT need a plot to rez here. Each home or aparment has 50 or 100 prims built into the rent, and you can purchase more land impact at the Welcome Center at the beginning of downtown.

  1. You can rent a rental box and use prims anywhere on the sim you want

  2. Houses and landscaping remain in place. Most homes are inspired by architecture of the 50s-70s that have had minimal updates after 1985. Feel free to use this inspiration in your own home or decorate as you please. There is no required theme for inside your home.
  3. Roaming unattached pets limited to 1 per household
  4. ROOMMATES & Additional people ARE allowed. All prims are rented per person at the Welcome center.

The purpose of this group is to fund the Salchicha County sim. What isn't rented in residential spots is brought to you by donations from Salchichans like you.

ThanksGIVING Postponed until next year

The ThanksGIVING 2017 Charity event will not be happening this year due to insufficient funds to both maintain the sim fees and be able to donate. I instead encourage you to find a charity that you trust and donate directly this holiday season!

Be proactive in your charity choices! Research and donate only to places you can completely trust. Here are some good places to start:

MAIN EVENT 
Freak Show & Curio Contest
November 11th at 6pm SLT
(Sign up starts 5pm and closes at 6:30)
 _____________________________________________
                                             
WARNING: This event may contain gore or other graphic content, as many curiosities are of dead stuff. Be Prepared or please feel free to skip this event ♥

- - - - - - - - -
HOW TO ENTER - 1 of 2 ways:

• Be a freak - Dress your avatar into something unique and unusual and present yourself on the main stage.
• Bring a Curiosity - Find an item to put on display and create an interesting story behind it. Where it came from, what it does, who wore it, etc.

- - - - - - - - -
THE EVENT:

The event is much like a talent show. Participants will gather backstage and will be introduced to the stage for a 3 minute performance explaining the story behind your freak or curiosity item. After your performance, you may be asked simple questions from the Master of Ceremonies and then you may take a seat in the audience. When all contestants have had a chance to present, the audience will vote for their favorite act.

Winners take home trophies and -RC- Cluster Gift cards, contestants and audience members will walk away with various prizes too!

- - - - - - - - -

A curiosity could be anything from your inventory as long as it has a really cool back story. This is a chance to show off something unique in your inventory and make up an equally unique story behind it!

EXAMPLE:
My curiosity: I tint a basic sausage blue. I call it "SWAMP METAL SALCHICHA".
My Backstory: It is a petrified blue salchicha from 1932 when there was an unknown metal that leaked from the factory into the ground of the salchicha plants - it was eaten whole by a man named Joe Schmo, who worked in the swamps. He died from the poisons in the sausage and fell into the swamp - his body decomposed into bones but the only thing left was a blue metallicsalchicha.

F A Q:

Q. What is a Freak Show?
A: A Freak show or a sideshow is an event that features abnormally developed people or animals. Unusual deformities or talents such as having extra body parts or odd placements of things like hair, teeth or nails is common. Some may feature the ability to push the body to extremes such as contortionism or having overly-elastic skin or a freakishly long tongue.

Q: What is a Curiosity?
A: A rare, unusual, or intriguing object. Artwork, sculptures, Taxidermy (usually the lovingly tacky kind), knick nacks, vintage antiques, skulls, weird vintage stuff and oddities from history.

Q: If I have a real life curiosity, can I use that?
A: That is awesome, but no, not for the contest. Tell us about it during the week though because we want to know about it!

Q: Do my storylines have to be related to the lore of Salchicha County? 
A: Nope, get creative and make something really crazy up!
