  2. i started to read this thread from the last post ikr ,,,, ok now i really need my coffee
  3. i forgot to say ,when you fill in the name of the house ,you need to pull down the dropdown menu of the houses to see Bellisseria on top
  4. I saw it last night and then today but it had the rancher house on it . I tried to see who it belong to but all that shows is either noone or nobody sorry not a lot od sleep last night and just getting coffee ,,,, was chemo infusions this week and hubby had rough night ,,, but the little island looks awsome ,,,, also i also saw one with like old almost church and an other building that was like a warf building but its not there now ,,,, however the little island thing is a great ideal to sell land buy linden land ,,,, island plot s like that ,,,, enough room from almost prying eyes but close enough to get to the main ,,,, who knows ,,, maybe that is the next thing after the campers ,,,,, never know winking hoping ,,,, hugs got to get my wawa in a bit ,,,, hubby doing better now able to keep his lunch down ,,,, so ,,, hugs hugs hugs ,
  5. It was a challenge but the Shenandoah came out quite good after some fretting about walls.😊 Love the location in Decker!
  6. if you are at the landpage where you got your old lindenhome ,you need to refresh over and over again ,its smart to fill in the name of your place in the box before you start refreshing ,you can refresh 10 times then you need to wait 10 min ,to go faster log out of the page and back in and start again ,about three times a week ,mon/tuesday and friday ,houses /boats or campers will be released ,sometimes everyday .there are lots of people leaving there homes then ,so your chance of getting a house is pretty good then ,if your new at this it will take some practice ,,look a bit on this forum and you find way more info about it , goodluck !
  7. Ok, first forgive me if this has been addressed, but I've tried to get one of the new homes for months...and have failed miserably every time...please point me in the right place if there is an answer to this. None of the new homes are available, I never seem to know when/where they are - is there a post that I can follow that will give that information. I've been in SL for 7-8 yrs and have had one of the older linden homes, but left it because it just wasn't aesthetically what I wanted. I really would like to have one now and I'm beyond frustrated with the process, to be honest.
  8. I got a girlfriend now. Met her in Transcendence which is a transgender dating group
  9. So you want someone to devote hours of their time making your club successful for 40 cents a shift and rely on tips to make up the difference? I do wish you good luck with that but i would be a little more generous if i was looking for good staff.
  10. When either of us played around we didnt talk about it much.
  11. Cadhaire is my favorite too. I snagged an abandon there a while ago that's across the street from the beach houses, on a little rise, half sandy plot! It's perfect for me, because I'm not all that enthused about living right on the sand. The LH houses aren't on stilts, so I feel like a sneaker wave could flood my basement, lol. Immersion can getcha sometimes! I think I'll give it up after a couple months tho, I'll post here if/when I do. I have an idea for a different sort of decor than I've been doing, but once I've tried that, I don't really have time to do the place justice.
  12. Default settlings are what I mean when I say much darker overall. Sure, I can make personal settings, and have lighting more to my taste, but for example in Bellisseria, I *used* to enjoy using regional, because it was quite lovely there. But now the past week, even a sunny afternoon looks exactly as if a solar eclipse is in progress. It's so dark, using regional default isn't even an option any more. There is no way to adjust gamma in graphics options, it's only for making personal environment settings that override regional. One would think a "compromise" standard light stemming from EEP would be a realistic look we see in RL. This dark gloomy light is not realistic, and a far cry from an upgrade. Seeing recent pictures on these forums, when people use defaults, everything is so dark you have to squint to see details. Daylight pictures, mind you. It's not my graphics, every single other game I play have days that actually look like daytime. I'm sorry I'm so vocal about this. Light and sound in SL has always been a fascination with me, they are like foundations of creating a mood and vibe with almost everything else. When one of those two things are off, it throws ME off. If I have to always use my own light and sound, I feel a disconnection from the virtual world around me. I probably belong in a padded cell somewhere. Knowing this is the first step in recovery, right? I'll back out of this thread for real now. What happens, happens, and I'll adjust however I need to. But if this is how default SL is going to look now, it makes me sad.
  13. Today
  14. I finally got a home in Deer Run that I just love, a peaceful pond off to the side and a river in back. And my alt has the lovely trailer.
  15. I just explored the Pickle a bit and my topfavourite region is Cadhaire. It's a pity I missed that. But Axim ist next best and though I am not in the first row I can see the sea and my garden is green.
  16. Residents who want a part in selecting regions to save should pay for that privilege. On an ongoing basis. Which will not happen. But if these regions are for the purpose of showcasing SL, their cost is LLs cost of doing business, and choosing them is their prerogative.
  17. Why the desire to make something permanent that is essentially experiential? For me, I'd rather have it be a pleasant memory, forever in my mind, my imagination in part. If it came back for real it would likely disappoint. I'm sure you'll make a good case for it! I might even agree, partially
  18. "Creativity is the new Literacy" Second Life® - VISIONAIRE INSTITUTE would like to cordially invite you to an exhibition "JOURNEYS" showcasing the work of her tenth graduating class of photographers. VISIONAIRE INSTITUTE | DEAN | NARIKO OKAWA VISIONAIRE INSTITUTE | DEAN | WRENNOIR CERISE VISIONAIRE INSTITUTE | MANAGER & PR | FAYTHE RECHEL ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DATE: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 22nd, 2019 TIME: 10 AM SLT LOCATION: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Aragonese/22/213/402 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE TENTH COURSE You don't want to miss the wonderful exhibitions our graduating photographers have worked so hard on. Their work is based on the instruction and support provided from the instructors and fellow students at VISIONAIRE INSTITUTE. The classes revolved strongly around group discussions about the important elements of producing powerful photography. Some of these elements included advanced composition, lighting and color, using lines and positioning the subjects, getting the most out of viewer controls, and many other components of professional photography. The instructors and students both provided examples to be commented on and discussed during each class. The goal of homework was to provide a doorway for communicative learning and constructive group feedback to help each individual photographer recognize and improve their skills. Discussions and examples were provided on what to expect after graduation and how the expertise could be utilized. Presentations by guest speakers talked about their journey and the methods they used to gain highly developed works. Previous students are always welcome to participate. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- LIST OF GRADUATING PHOTOGRAPHERS: The theme for this graduating class' exhibit is: 'JOURNEYS' Come view all the interpretations of this theme from the galleries of our students listed below: BRENNAN MAVEN / Brennan Q. Reinerman CATALYSIS RESIDENT / Cat MOON BEERBAUM QUORON DAGGER / Quron MSILVERWOLF / Silver Borg TERESA FIRELIGHT ASPEN NORMANDY / Tour Blanche REDTESS69 / Red Jess We are missing some of our classmates in this exhibit due to RL obligations, but they are in our hearts today: JASMINE TRYCE ABERDON ENIGMA DORIANA CELE FAUVE AEON There will also be previous graduates who will be exhibiting as well as Art Patrons who have kindly donated to support emerging artists. You can find their work on the ground level. If you are a SL Premium Member, you can be an Art Patron as well. Just ask WrenNoir Cerise! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- THE HISTORY OF VISIONAIRE INSTITUTE This SL photography school opened in early 2014 and is the brainchild of WrenNoir Cerise and Nariko Okawa, two established SL photographers who have created images for magazines, store ads, vendor ads, private clients, or other personal photography. Nariko and Wren saw a need for people who wanted to take their own photos, but lacked the technical skills and/or the 'artistic eye' to create a polished, powerful, or aesthetically significant image. There was also a lack of an organized SL photography knowledge base that people could tap. Nariko and Wren decided to make the time to put together a curriculum and be available to teach. Recognizing that no one person knows everything, the course also incorporates established and well-respected photographers as guest lecturers. VISIONAIRE INSTITUTE aims to teach her students how to 'see' what works and what doesn't work in an image. Significantly, the lessons are intense and make students fully flesh out who they are as photographers. No one is expected to copy the teachers' techniques. Students' own strengths are allowed to flourish and be recognized. Everyone has a skill in something and at VISIONAIRE Institute they help you find it, refine it, augment it, and use it to the utmost. Since opening, it has been packed with students each semester. Due to the thorough lesson plans, there are only 2 semesters offered each year -- sometimes only 1. VISIONAIRE INSTITUTE looks to evolve as the needs of the students become more and more refined. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- PREVIEW OF UPCOMING COURSES Each class teaches Nariko and Wren something about improvements and additions to the curriculum. You can expect to see more of: * Creating strong imagery through tight composition * Lighting techniques * Portrait photography * Blogging photography * The business aspects of being an SL photographer * Small, intimate classes (limited to 10 students) * Video tutorials

  20. Thanks! I'm sure the actual builders here could do better but I said I'd give it a shot and I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. There's room for improvement but at this point I'm kind of over it now. Need a break before I go bald from the stress! 😆
  21. I think that there's always a tension between "popularity" (which is, in a sense, about how effective something is) and the need to not reduce everything to homogeneity. Yes, we need movie theatres, and they service more people than art galleries and theatres. But without the latter, we would be much impoverished. In SL, if the only criterion were popularity, we'd have nothing left by box stores and sex sims.
