ZoHa Island Business District and Sandbox V-blog

In my second attempt at a V-blog, I decided to take you on a tour of ZoHa Islands’ Business District. ZoHa Islands is the only estate in Second Life to offer a set of sims that are connected to form a large business district. You can purchase parcels of almost any size and prim count to accommodate businesses large and small.

Part of the package offered to businesses who rent parcels in our business district is free advertising in the advertising boards located at both the main office and the business district office.

Also, if you’re not sure how to operate the tier payment kiosks, I have demonstrated that in this video. I hope that those new to ZoHa Islands will find that helpful.

I also discuss the ZoHa Islands sandbox, which is a wonderful place to rez items out, create builds, etc.

I hope that you enjoy this video and hopefully I will continue to improve as I move forward.

I remain respectfully yours,
Suzanne Piers, ZoHa Islands Social Media Manager

My Very First V-Blog!

So this weekend I decided to try something different — record and post a video blog, or a v-blog. I decided to try X-split Gamecaster to record gameplay in SL, and it worked really well with one problem — I had difficulty with the sound. I kept getting an echo. After a lot of frustration and experimentation, I realized if I muted my speakers I could record a voice-over as I video recorded my travels in Second Life, but this meant that I could not hear in-game sounds, but yet in-game sounds recorded on my video recording. (If anyone has any ideas about how to fix this, I’d love to hear them. You can email me on my gmail account at suzannepiers821 or contact me in-world.)

What was interesting was when I played the recording back, all of the in-world sounds were there, which I could not hear as I was exploring. The video I recorded ended up being over 30 minutes long, and I tried to edit it into two videos to post on two different days, but alas my video editing skills are in the infant stage, as well. I need more practice (and a decent video editing software!).

I decided, since it was nearly October, to visit a site that has some haunted stuff. This was called Halloween 8th Year Haunted Mansion, rides, Zombie Hunt.

Here is my very first v-blog. I know that it is too long, and the last half drags a bit, so feel free to fast forward through the end if you’d like. I’ll work on improving my skills for next time. Meanwhile, here’s my very raw video blog.
