a little fed up of constantly sinking below ground

Recommended Posts

Hello. I'm new, and about to give up already.

The problem is that my avatar keeps sinking below ground, and staying there. Every time I do anything, like change my shoes, the avatar just sinks under the ground. I go into appearance, edit hover so that she stands on the ground at 50, save ... and she sinks under the ground again. 

I don't see how the problem can be to do with floors, either (which lots of people say is the issue, in forums threads I've found). I keep pressing home to go to new places, and wherever I emerge ... I'm under the ground. 

I may be "Loly" but It's not going to be great to be this low all the time.

I habe no idea whether I'm looking at SL through Firestorm, or Pheonix, and no idea how I would be able to tell. I've no idea what those things are. Like I said, I'm new.

Does anyone have any idea how I solve this once and for all? If I can't, there's just going to be no point in coming here again.

Loly

If you are new you are probably using the default viewer by Linden Lab.  Anyway, if you are changing shoes, are you remembering to wear the shoe base?  It is a small brown shoe in your shoe folder.  Without the base, it will appear as if your feet have sunk into the floor.

Are you in quicksand? Just teasing, :P

I've had this happen twice, I just kept walking and it fixed it... I wish I could be of more help...

This is a bug, but there is a workaround. Open the edit appearance window, change your Hover setting back to 50 but do not click Save. Simply close the window without saving.

Omg  thank you very much for that info! I've been away from sl for so long and i just got back a couple of days ago. When i first encountered this six-feet-under-bug LOL i thought it has something to do with the AO hud i was wearing and to my surprised  we have a new "hover" option in the body tab of "edit your shape".  Every  time i tweak my body fat im experiencing this bug. 

I hope someone already reported this  bug.

The latest rlv viewer has the hover slider (altitude offset) on the menu bar just like FS did before ssa broke it. Don`t think it prevents sinking in the ground bug but it`s easier to adjust hover on the fly without having to edit shape.

Another problem might be what you are standing on. If you are standing on mesh or sculpted ground, depending on how it's made, you may sink through it rather than stay on top of it....just a thought.
