How to Get Free Giant-Mega
Ever needed a particular giant
or mega prim? You can find many mega prim packages inworld or at SL
webstores. But digging through your inventory or running around and actually paying for a
mega prim is a not a
very good idea.
You should be using Latif Khalifa's PrimSearch web site
But before you go there, you will need access. Access is granted by clicking an
inworld object. You can get the access control object by paying $50 Linden via the Marketplace
or you can get it for free
at this SLURL at the
Once you click the link for the Bustard Sim, your Second Life client will open
up a teleport link. The TP link is at the very bottom of the right-hand
Once you get there, click the PrimSearch and a Buy for $0 box will appear:
Now go somewhere you can rez objects, and set the PrimSearch Login prim out in
the world by dragging and dropping it on the ground, then left-click the box.
If you want immediate acces from any allow-scripts area, just wear the supplied HUD, then click the HUD.
A login dialog box will appear:

For example, this is a result of a search for all permutations of prims bigger
than 100 X 10 X 10.
: Any attempt to edit the size of a mega prim
will result in all sides which are greater than 10m instantly switching back to
the regular 10m limit. Otherwise you can treat any Giant prim just like a
Mega prims are a result of a hack.
Mega prims are only available because of an early exploit. In 2006,
managed to tweak the viewer in a way that allowed him to
create them. Linden Lab never intended for them to
be available. The server code had to be re-written to keep them.
Otherwise a large prim that overlapped another parcel could not be returned by
the enroached parcel owner.
are prims (primitive geometric shapes that everything is
made out of) that are larger than the standard size of 10X10X10 meters (1,000
meters). Mega prims are available as large as an entire sim, as large as
256X256X256 (16,777,216 cubic meters), or even 64,000 meters cubed, enclosing a
space of 262 million million meters.. These oversized
prims were originally created through a client exploit that lasted just a few
days. But they were extremely
useful, and were used in many
places in Second Life™.
"Megaprims are a mis-feature... a bug
that many people consider a feature."
-- Andrew Linden in 2007, reported by
Luckily, the Lindens made the necessary changes in 2008 and allowed mega prims to stay.
