3rd Rock Grid (3RG) Land Available to Citizens
Citizen Land-Holding Options and Fees
Community Regions (Community Core and Access):
3RG citizens have access to 25 regions designated as community-owned. Input from all citizens is welcomed and encouraged for these regions, as these are the regions first seen by new citizens and because these regions are a place where all citizens gather, work, and play together as a cohesive community. New 3RG citizens arrive in Our Town, which is the region at the center of the core. the 9 core regions are shown above in orange.
Please contact the 3RG Community Council or attend the 3RG community meeting (Saturday, 2: PM 3RG/Pacific time), if you would like to contribute to these regions or other areas of Cummunity activities.
Navigable Water Regions (Community and 3RG Access):
3RG's core includes 16 regions that are mostly water. While all single regions or groups of regions will be found to be surrounded by what appears to be water, only navigable water regions allow travel into and/or through the water area. There are additional Navigable water regions owned and operated by 3RG that are not community managed.
Preform Regions (3RG Core Ring):
These regions are available as a ring of regions that surround the community core, They can be held with 7500, 15,000, 30,000 or 45,000 prim. To become a land holder of a preformed region, contact email@example.com. Note that these regions are pre-terraformed and include walkways to and from the community core. Some of the areas are zoned for parcels, some for full or multiple regions. Minor terraforming may occur on thise regions and parcels, as long as they do not materially change the "look" of the area. Here is a link to the core ring covenants information

3RG Land-Holding Fees (in US$)
Land Use Fee
For every one full private region a citizen holds of any of the sizes above,
a maximum of four (4) add-on regions may also be held.
Add-on regions must be connected to the land-holder's qualifying regions,
by themselves or another other add-on regions.

Land Use Fee
3RG Land Changes
After a region is held, the land-holder may make changes to the region specifics, some of which have fees attached, as follows:
$20.00 (USD)for each instance of:
Change of Region Name
Change of Region Location
Transfer of Region Ownership
Reduction of Region Prim Allowance
Land use fees current at the time of the change will be applicable for the affected region(s)
There is no fee incurred by increasing a region's prim allowance. However, land use fees current at the time of the change will be applicable for the affected region(s). There is also no fee charged, if a region must be moved to a different area to allow the addition of new region(s).
If a region is found to be over the prim count allowance, the month that the overbuild occurs will automatically increase the land holding fee to the level that the prims total shows, and will remain at the higher level. Note that a fee will be charged to reduce the land use allowance and that fee will be at the then current prim usage rate.
