1) Apps will open for CV3 starting on July 1, 2018. This guide will be useful both for new characters and transfers. And an additional "cheat sheet" guide for doing your transfer app can be found here. If you have questions, jump on our Discord and hit up #cvquestions, which mentors will be monitoring as available.
2) A soft open for RP will begin on July 14th. The soft open will mean the sim is open for RP, but we will not yet have a dice/weather hud available. This means there won't be a lot of rolling dice for things yet. There will be no XP spends, and there may be no way to look at your current XP. Nonetheless, you can send in tickets for XP gain in the usual way.
3) Once you are approved, you can app to own a business, to lead a faction, or to lead a subfaction. Make sure to note that leading a faction will be a staff position, whereas leading a subfaction will not. More information about what businesses we have open can be found here.
4) Rentals will open when RP opens. We have over 50 rentals available, a few on every tier of the city. There are rentals for petite avatars. There are ship rentals for Exos League Captains. The ships are skybox interiors which are ship-like (several different models). We won't be rezzing out actual ships. A separate process for the Captains will be set up after opening.
5) Once we have the dice hud, we'll do a big Grand Opening IC event. It'll be pretty neat.
6) If you haven't come by, we have a "viewing platform" set up if you want to see the build as it is being finalized. You can check it out here. Or you can search "Convergence" in places, and TP to the one that says Viewing Platform.
