Home / OSgrid



Swondo has several servers running for the OSgrid world. Some host public regions or special project regions and some are to show chosable Swondo landscapes. Most servers however are dedicated to leasing out high quality regions(Sims) for people who want an Estate or region to create, build or live on.



Swondo Estate is the leasing-out part of Swondo and meant for growing numbers of people who come to OSgrid to have an environment in which they can live and create without the technical challenges of setting up and maintaining a simulator.

With high quality land, great estate services and low costs, Swondo strives to be the best choice for this new generation of inhabitants.

Swondo offers standard sized and extra large regions with 10.000 to 90.000 prims. For people with no budget there are Free beautiful parcels with 500 prims. In this way we think we can offer the best for any budget. All regions come with high quality nature landscape and vegetation of choice. Landscapes can be changed without limits. Delivery without initial landscape is also possible. Your Estate, Sim or region can be located close to populated areas or hidden away in the almost endless large oceans of OSgrid.

Go here to setup your land in OSgrid or Swondo World


 Standard 256x256 regions, 512x512 or 768x768 VAR-regions are offered at the same price. Price depends on prim allowance.
 Regions come with initial (fully changable) landscape and a name of choice
 It is possible to ask for OAR files during and/or at the end of your lease.
 IAR files can be made on request and sent to you.
 Swondo management has over 14 years experience with servicing and managing large high quality estates in Second Life and openSim.
 Happy customers are the best advertisement. Swondo always tries to offer more than expected customer service.
 Every 24 hours a 'return point' is created to enable Rollback possibilities and to prevent major losses on Hardware failure. These OAR files are stored on two separate harddiscs on two physically different locations.
 ViVox voice is standard available on all Sims at no additional charge. Region-owners can regulate voice per region or parcel at wish.

 

VAR-regions are large regions which look like a combination of multiple standard regions. They really are one and you won't feel any bordercrossing within. Your X,Y coordinates-meter will go up to 768 meter. A VAR-region has the same server-burden as a standard region and that is why the price can be the same.

Much more land for the same price but please keep in mind:

 Not every viewer can handle(visit) VAR-Regions.
 VAR-Regions demand a little more power from the viewer its computer.

Go here to order your land and choose your initial landscape

In theory VAR-regions can even be bigger. Swondo has tested the next possible size 1024x1024 and 1280x1280 but noticed that viewers began to hiccup and slow-down. This is most likely due to larger numbers the visitors computer (viewer) has to calculate. Because not everyone has a power-computer and Swondo wants to avoid being blamed for causing lag, Swondo will offer size 1024 and beyond only at special request.





Swondo Village is located at the OSgrid LBSA-Boardwalk. It is still under construction. A cinema, restaurant, harbour, about 40 apartments and 30 shops are being build. The apartments are meant for people who like to live in the village. The goal is to become a good freebie shopping center and gathering place for the grid its population. Shops and apartments will be offered for free. Participation like helping to create and build or run social activities like a bar or other hangout is very welcome. More special projects at the Projects page.



Dan Banner
We find it important to mention that we think Dan Banner is the reason that OSgrid still is around today as the most active OpenSim world. He is and always has been around to help anybody who asked and he was the stable factor during the hard times years back. A very social and accessible person. We are sure the existance of OSgrid today is mainly because of his endless efforts. We could not wish for a better president for OSgrid. Thank you Dan.
