  1. Past hour
  2. I don't know about that. I think it's more that the complainers are the vocal ones and the rest of us get on with it more quietly or just ask questions. As for your examples, those of us with a strong kinesthetic approach to learning would surprise you with what we can do and how we go about it. There's always a subtle tactile element to my public speaking and overt ones in my preparation and most definitely in my learning how to do it. Audio learning as the sole way of acquiring manual skills is a red herring. But some will learn better with a verbal description to accompany their physical efforts and some will learn better from reading first or seeing it done. You always have to do it yourself in the end though. But all I'm really asking is to just be a bit more careful with how you word things. Given how difficult many people are inclined to make things for themselves, why throw even more obstacles in their way like demeaning a format you find problematic? It might be part of the solution for someone else.

    Witchy things

    Hello, I am as many I assume into witching items from clothes to statuses to any item regarding witchcraft. I'd like for you to share if you have any places/item shopes/ clothing shopts that I can visit other than those that I already have.
  4. SL home ideas? All I've built was on my 512 sqm parcel (well, now 1024 sqm due to recent premium perks enhancements). I've started with a hand-made skybox that had a small classroom at the bottom and a trap door for students at the middle of the stand. Then this was converted to a house on a "leg", a bit like a hut of a witch; Half of it was covered with roof, half was a large balcony with chairs for stargazing. After few years I gave up on box-like houses and went for an oval, hovering shape, "daughtership". Windows all around, warm colours, generally bright and more pleasant for the eye with its softer lines. Yet, it was not very homey-like, and at the same time I've decided to stop to be an alien and socialize a bit more - and I've went down to the actual ground level, installing an A-shape wooden cabin along with a small Japanese-like garden. It would stay like that if not the 512->1024 bonus - after asking Lindens to cut out adjacent 512 sqm from a neighbouring abandoned land and merging it with my existing parcel I've replaced the structure with stone/wooden tower and placed the garden around the stairs that lead to the entrance. Indoors? Cozy, yet not overloaded with items. Furthermore, during winter months snow does appear on parcel, and during summer ones - flowers and trees are visible, like in the attached screenshots.
  5. This sandbox is newcomer friendly as following those rules, therefore currently set as so. But just wondering what would be the better land type we can choose from the drop down menu to have a better traffic?
  6. Ice Top (no idea what they're singing, the meaning of words)
  7. Huh. Well, can you create textures? https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/UR-Foods-Soda-Bottle-Set-full-perm-mesh/11823801 https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Thorenbuilt-Thors-Tavern-12-Bottles-Sculpt-Map-Kit/2354947 https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Mesh-Bottle-5-Full-Perms/8251269 https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Mesh-Bottle-4-Full-Perms/8251268 OR, you can pay someone L$10,000 for the same thing with a touch more detail, right?

  9. Ah, that makes a lot of sense. Thank you.
  10. There is another approach. Go to the marketplace, search for "bottle", specify the search by ticking Copy, Modify and Transfer (this will make fullperms list only) and refine the search. Find a bottle that looks as if it has a decent enough shape, and make sure that the description mentions that it includes UV maps (why people sell fullperm mesh without them is beyond me, but it happens). Buy your bottle of choice, unpack it, and create a copy of the mesh that you will work on. Download the UV map to your computer. Open the UV map in an image manipulator program (Photoshop, Gimp, whichever you prefer) and texture the UV yourself. If you have no intention of selling the bottles, I don't think even Pepsi would care that you took an image of one of their bottles off of Google and used it privately - but if you want no doubt whatsoever that any legals are broken, design your own soda logo. Upload the texture to second life and apply it to the bottle. I'm seeing fullperm bottles for L$25 that look good, and you've got 120 listing for L$0-10. If you can't figure the texturing bit out yourself, search for a texture designer instead.
  11. Well, OK, if y'all are going to talk about reality ... Patch spoke of 'railroad' as one of several upcoming themes, didn't he? Was the magic number 8 new LH themes in total? So on Belli we'll have at least 3, Traditional, Houseboat and Campground. I can't believe that they'd actually return to already released regions and add a railroad ... considering their QA process, it would be horrendous, with all the user content in place. So yes, I guess that reality is disappointing me a bit, lol. That leaves the currently undeveloped portions of Belli for a rather localized railroad theme, or, possibly, another continent. I don't see how they'll fit 4 more themes on Belli, so I guess it's kind of a foregone conclusion that there will be another new LH continent at some point. If you wanted a railroad that actually went a real distance, as opposed to a cute San Francisco-style streetcar, it would surely be easier to do on a new continent. But, in the southern part of Belli, you COULD fit another theme, perhaps a localized streetcar city one.
  12. I have used all of these in various Linden Homes including the New Belli Traditionals , and Houseboats. https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Trompe-Loeil-Finley-Kitchenette-PG-V11-mesh/8438099? https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Con-Catia-Kitchen-WHITE-Modular-Kitchen/13132802 https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/hive-modular-modern-farmhouse-kitchen/17307272 https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/BAZAR-Toronto-Kitchen-PG/5515085

  14. Found something new - some sims below the working area - and already partly in the works. These photos are from SSPE230 (down south on the map, where the "eye" had some missing sims) - also "parcels size greater than 1024 parcels".
  15. You can also check out this thread: I find that kitchens are the absolute worst to decorate, at least for me anyways.
  16. Olá, estou com uma duvida, eu havia colocado na minha conta um cartão de crédito nacional pelo paypal. Agora eu tentei comprar lindens e na hora do erro informou que eu não tenho fundos suficientes. Eu preciso recarregar o paypal com o meu cartão de credito para fazer comprar lindens?
  17. I have one. https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Translator-104-Languages/641722 Sweedish Chef is called Bork Bork
  18. People you bring in to help you with a specific product line development are not your employees (it would've been an RL administrative nightmare for you if they were) - they are contractors. An SL written contract is pretty meaningless as The Lab would not enforce it and tells you so in the ToS. An RL contract, either written or oral, is enforceable via legal venues but such enforcement may cost you more then it is worth. In any case forms for such contracts are available on-line, just do a google search. If there are significant payments involved you might consider paying not in L$ but in USD via Paypal. Then if the work is not performed to your satisfaction you might have a recourse with Paypal.
  19. Well, the skin is purchased, mod/copy/no transfer -- is the transfer permission critical to this? I've tried to find out more about uuids but almost every result seems to imply that getting textures from skins is something only pirates want to do. Are the texture uuids something I should be able to find, or would I have to ask the skin maker or something? And if I had them, what would I do with them? I don't see a way to give that information to the texture picker either.
  20. And I don’t understand how the author’s permission is related to the upload problem, why don’t you answer the question instead of insulting me?
  21. I used one from Trompe l'Oeil and just tinted the wood to the shade I want it to be. However, hers aren't all that modular. Did you check out the one called Catia by Consignment? L$895 and it does come in a dark version.
  22. Mouselook is your friend. I've already written off any idea of a usable railroad anywhere in or around Bellisseria, which will leave me with exactly what I expect or leave me pleasantly surprised. Either way, even if there were an RR on Bellisseria, what decent, logical way would it connect with the only other *decent* RR system at Heterocera Atoll? Smells like a lot of hard work to accomplish, so whatever it is that Patch was teasing at his Meet the Lindens talk, I'm suspecting it's nothing at all what we expect or even would like hope to have.
  23. It's not selfish. It's potentially saving the buyer from getting their account locked or worse. When I was a noob & didn't know better, I bought L$ from a 3rd party reseller & this was back in the days that 3rd party resellers were allowed. The L$ I bought were very cheap - so cheap that alarm bells were ringing & I suspected a scam. I thought I may not get the L$ delivered so I only bought a small amount to test it. I did however get the L$ sent to me inworld from a zero day account a couple of days later. So I thought oh, this is great, maybe it's not a scam & ordered a slightly larger sum. I also told a couple of my friends about the website I used to buy the L$ & both of them bought quite a large amount of L$. I still feel really bad about this A couple of days later, both of my friends had their accounts put on hold - they were blocked from login with a message to contact support. Turned out as soon as those L$ hit their accounts they were put on hold & had the L$ bought deducted from their balance & then had to pay LL in $ to get their accounts back to a positive L$ balance. It cost them both over US$100. I wasn't locked out of my account but I knew it was coming as soon as those L$ were paid to me. LL were obviously aware & were watching I contacted support as soon as I knew what had happened to my friends & was told I'd have to wait until my account was locked & then to contact them because the lock was automatic. Sure enough next day, my account was also on hold. I phoned LL billing & explained again what had happened & I had to buy enough L$ to put my account back in a positive balance after the fraudulent L$ were removed. LL unblocked my account as soon as I did that. They explained to me that the L$ I bought were bought using a stolen credit card & I got a polite lecture about buying L$ from those kinds of websites again. So no, it's not selfish. Anyone buying L$ from an unauthorized reseller is going to end up getting their account locked & paying for those L$ twice, without actually getting the L$. I'm also sad to see that same "game currency" website is still trading, however they no longer sell L$. Not sure if I'm allowed to name the site so I'll err on the side of caution & not. I wish I could though because the site is scam & still selling "game gold" after all these years.
  24. This is very good information. Thank you for explaining this. In the end though, it doesn't matter because aside from the fact I can't even afford the low end of the spectrum of L$2500, the copyright thing seems to be an issue as well... It's a dead dream either way...
