A. PREFACEWelcome to Boystown! We are excited that you are considering living in our renown community. The Boystown sims offer a variety of living arrangements for residences, including land parcels designed to fit your needs. This covenant contains a set of rules that will outline the expectations regarding tenants renting land parcels. Prior to purchasing land you will be prompted to fully agree with all these rules. If you feel that the rules in this covenant conflict with your expectations, please DO NOT buy any land. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact us BEFORE you buy any land as ALL SALES ARE FINAL AND BINDING.
The Boystown sims are an upscale residential development, and as such, we offer a community that is rich in atmosphere. We offer community events, venues, shopping and a wide range of entertainment options for your enjoyment. Our community has many resident planned activities designed to further enhance your living experience Boystown.
B. CONTACT INFORMATIONFor any questions you may have related to land, the Boystown team will be there to help you, so feel free to contact us. We answer most issues within 24 hours.
Contact: Lee McKay, Divos Titanium, or Adham DeCuir
C. GENERALBoystown is a privately operated estate, therefore you do not need a premium account to own land with us. However you do need to pay a tier directly to Boystown. The tier is paid in-world through tier boxes located at each land parcel.
Boystown residential sims are strictly residential and NO other use is allowed. For questions about store rentals on our other sim locations, please contact Adham DeCuir.
Boystown land is sold fully terraformed. Residents who wish to make terraforming adjustments to their parcels need to contact a member of the Boystown team. Housing structures may also be provided upon request; however these structures are non-transferable. Residents are responsible for maintaining the land in a manner consistent with the Boystown sims.
The Boystown community has an established theme and aesthetic. Our theme is urban and modern. Anyone purchasing a parcel here must be willing to accept the landscaped theme. You are NOT allowed to intentionally return all objects! If there are community owned items you would like to return or extreme changes to your terrain you might like to make, please contact us PRIOR to making these changes. The general theme must remain and may only be altered only with prior approval. There are cases where prim may be shared between parcels for landscaping or design purposes. We reserve the right to require this where it contributes to the SIM as a community and would ask that you respect our community vision by accepting your share of any landscaping items on your parcel.
Landscaping must be suitable for the environment. Our community aesthetic is meant to evoke an urban feel. Should your landscaping be deemed unsuitable, you will be required to remove the offending items. Examples of unsuitable items include log cabins, tropical-themed items, castles, etc. If you are unsure, just ask a member of the Boystown team.
Your first tier payment should be paid IMMEDIATELY (within 5 minutes) after the purchase of your land. If you can't find your tierbox, contact us right away. Minimum tier payment is 1 week. You can pre-pay additional weeks as well.
All tiers are paid ON or BEFORE the due date. After 3 days, Boystown reserve the right to reclaim the land and return all objects on the plot. No refund will be issued.
The tierbox will start messaging you 3 days before the due date. The message will appear in green letters on the main chat once you log in. You can also left click your tierbox to verify how much time you have remaining. In any case you are the sole responsible of keeping your tier in good standing.
As soon as you buy land please contact a member of the Boystown team and ask to be invited to the Boystown Resident Group. It is at your own discretion to become a member of the group or not, but please bear in mind that it is through this group that we communicate with the residents, so if you don't become a member, you won't be able to receive important notices.
The tier is not refundable and any negative or positive balance is credited to the next owner.
The tierboxes should be visible and easily accessible at all times, so do not build on top of them as they are outside your property line.
D. CONDUCTAll region residents must always be able to reach their homes and reside without lag, so please be mindful when throwing private parties. Also note, too many people in one region can often cause a great deal of lag and these regions are designated for peaceful residential living. Sporadic private parties are okay, ragers are not.
Vehicles such as cars and boats are allowed to be driven, ridden-in on public or your own land as long as it's not a nuisance to fellow residents. Boats are fine for homes, Large ships and Yachts are not allowed. Vehicles that are in good repair may be parked on your driveways, inside your plot.
Helicopters, Airplanes, & other flying vehicles are not allowed on the Boystown Estate due to closeness of neighbor airspace. We just don't have enough public land to allow safe flying.
If you use a security system, you should issue at least a 30 seconds warning before taking action. Make sure you DO NOT teleport people home; just push them gently out of your property. If a security system does not comply with these rules, it will be returned without warning.
Scripts causing lag or anything that lowers significantly the fps of the viewer will be returned without warning.
No temporary rezzers.
No "breedable animals" are allowed.
No rotating or flashing signs or structures.
No shouting objects.
No spy or listening devices.
No consensual or nonconsensual use of weapons.
No sexually explicit content in public view.
Harassment or abuse of any kind will not be tolerated.
Respect the TOS of Second Life and the covenant of the estate.
Respect the Boystown staff because they are here to help you. No inappropriate conduct will be tolerated.
You have access to Land Options, to maintain griefing, we ask that you set your land options as follows:
Create Objects: OFF for Everyone (may be on or off for Group)
Object Entry: OFF for Everyone (may be on or off for Group)
Run Scripts: ON for Everyone
In case of disagreement, the final arbiter is the estate manager.
E. BUILDING CODEOne main structure (house) per plot. All builds must appear to be from the SL time period 2012 +.
The style should blend in with the environment (i.e. you can't live in a medieval castle, log cabin, tree house, storefront, club, tropical island, ect). Keep in style with the urban residential theme. All buildings must appear to be in excellent condition and have no broken windows or boarded-up windows. Anything appearing to be "ghetto" or from a poverty-stricken area will be removed immediately. If you have any doubts, please contact us. We may ask you to change your home if it doesn't fit in.
Keep all your objects INSIDE your property lines.
Skyboxes and other flying objects must be placed above 900 meters and below 1200 meters.
The buildings on your land must be at least 4m away from the borders of your parcel. If the border is underwater, the main building should be at least 4m away from the edge of the ground.
The maximum height of the building cannot exceed the 15m. For buildings taller than that contact the estate manager.
The size of the house should be proportionate to the land and cannot take up the entire lot. Leave enough space around your house for trees and bushes.
Your land cannot be used as a sandbox or a construction site. If you wish to build your home yourself and building lasts more than 5 days, consider building it above 900 meters and below 1200 meters and then bring it down.
Keep your land tidy always. If your area is normally full of clutter, please use a closed skybox for that purpose.
Maintain rich vegetation on your land. Vegetation should match the theme also. This is a northern themed region thus why no beach/palms are allowed. In case you decide to live in a sky house, the land beneath it should be planted with trees and shrubs ALWAYS. If you want to save on prims on the ground, we could turn the land into water. Contact Boystown management for that.
No eyesores. If you are asked to replace your house, please do so within a reasonable time, even if you are the proud builder of it.
No full-bright builds and objects. Full-bright plants should be used moderately.
F. Reselling or Subleasing your parcelResidents may NOT re-sell their parcels. Land is solely owned by Boystown and must be returned to Boystown when the current tier has ended. Any land that is found to be for sale will be reclaimed.
G. LIABILITYLand is provided as is to residents. We do our best to provide a pleasant environment but we cannot guarantee a particular view or a particular spot of the sim on the grid; we can only guarantee a generally mature land.
H. CONCLUSIONOur aim is to create a community of high standards of living and this covenant is meant to set the general guidelines for Boystown residences. Since it is not possible to foresee all the problems that may arise, we will address each problem on a case-per-case basis. In all cases the final arbiter is the estate manager.
Boystown reserves the right to change this covenant at any time for any reason.
Respectfully, The Boystown Team
