Selling Items for PayPal

We are noticing an increase in the number of individuals selling items for real-world money, via PayPal. While this is a great way to sell your MetroGear and other items so that you can make room for more, we just want to share a word of caution for all parties.

Metropolis is a small and close-knit community. We prefer to keep things as amicable as possible. As our community grows and evolves we may see an increase in transactions making use of outside payment methods. Please be aware that we cannot control sales that do not go through our own systems.

If you believe that someone has deliberately tried to take advantage of you, please reach out to a member of the team. If you plan on deliberately trying to take advantage of someone, please be aware that we will take action to remove you from the community.

Thanks for your support, and cooperation.


March 2016 MetroGear Catalog

MGComingSoonMarchThe March 2016 MetroGear catalog will be available from Tuesday! We have some exciting things for both male and female avatars to dress up in. The January 2016 catalog will remain open for another month.

MetroGear Updates

Happy New Year!

We’re excited to see what 2016 brings us all. We are working hard behind the scenes to bring you all some great changes, terrific new goodies, and a few surprises along the way.

We would also like to announce that we are going to be retiring, for some time, the items in the Metropolis Launch Catalog. Select items may return in different colours, so do keep an eye out on upcoming catalogs for your faves.

In addition, we will be retiring the November and December catalogs by the end of the month.

MetroGear Update


We’ve been asked by several people about the status of the Tiny Body. When we brought it into Eden recently to celebrate marriage equality, we stated from the beginning it would just be a temporary fun thing until Metropolis. We also said that it would be available to purchase for MetroGear from that time onwards.

With the launch of MetroGear yesterday and tiny bodies still being free in Eden, we just want to re-iterate this to people so as to avoid any confusion. We don’t want anyone to purchase accessories for the tiny body and feel let down in Metropolis when they see the body in the catalog once more.

We didn’t want to remove the existing tiny bodies from Eden because we saw how much fun you have all been having with them :)
