Apologies if this thread is dumb, but I couldn't find a lot of starter resources - the stuff I did find was mostly "How to get a 3rd party viewer" and "What are lindens" and "How to start making a decent avatar", which is all appreciated but i've exhausted it now.
I've made an avatar that i'm more or less happy with, for the time being, I've wandered around some of the mainland a bit to look around, and looked at one or two sims that were suggested to me, but i'm sort of stumped on what to do to break into the game more, if that makes sense?
I've started re-texturing a free bus I got, because I don't know anything about renting a home/land and assume it's a bit too expensive to drop money on before i'm sure I want to spend that much on SL, but I still haven't actually exchanged a single word with any other person on SL so far. Are there some groups I should join, or places I should visit to attempt to get a bit of a jumpstart on things, or should I just keep wandering around? I'm not a very confrontational person so I don't want to bust in to random places blind, unless there is no real alternative.
