 3RD Rock Grid opens Gloebit Mall

3RD Rock Foundation agreed to the Communities’ request at the last community meeting and a citizen poll and has dedicated a new shopping area, named ‘Gloebit Mall’ This is to compliment the retail shopping area on Sifton Mall at Mullins. The new area is attracting the best designers on the grid such as Dawn Harbour, Donna Anna and Abigail Loon alongside some smaller retailers. We will also be opening a grid owned shop with the proceeds going towards the general server and charitable fund, which will carry the 3RG Assurance Mark of quality. We will be running both geodes- our grid currency – and gloebits alongside each other, giving our citizens’ choice and vendors the opportunity to sell in a universal currency.

We are very happy to accept people into the new mall, but they must have an excellent history of customer support and a good selection of items to sell. We are registered with the DMCA and we are very strict in enforcing and protecting creators’ content. The new mall is just filling at the moment ,and so if you have something special to sell contact me at 3RG by IM or notecard. The terms and conditions of allocation are strict, and as a showcase mall we want the best we can attract for our citizens and the wider metaverse. The shops will be rent free for a year pending a review.

Stichting ‘3RD Rock Grid Foundation’ is a not-for-profit corporation, registered in the Netherlands. Run by volunteers ( is one of the oldest OpenSimulator grids, and has been a part of virtual reality since December 2008. Since that time, it has led the way in experimenting with the social aspects of the three dimensional Internet, focussing on education, culture, arts and entertainment.

Best known for its charitable events for MSF ‘Doctors Without Borders’,3RG raises money throughout the year and at the ‘No Borders ROBstock’ Festival

Missing My Suitcase in Firestorm

I have been asked about this a few times recently and after some searching have found the answer in a forum

How to get your My suitcase folder back
Many thanks to Brayla Sana for this information

Sometimes you cant see your “my suitcase” folder in your inventory. This is where you put items you want to take with you when you travel using Hypergrid.

If the folder is missing at the top right of the inventory window, you see a dropdown that says “All Types.” Click the arrow and select “custom” at the bottom. Click the checkbox that says “Always Show Folders.” Then you can see the Suitcase.
