    Kookaburra! I'd forgotten he was sitting out here, especially since I usually have my sound turned way down, so I don't hear him laughing away. I don't have an old gum tree for him to sit in, either, so he's had to live on my shop's balcony. Oh, and I'm giving my LeLutka Simone an outing for a while...Maia was just too young for too long. Wonder when Peony will start growing wrinkles again...

    I was at the best beach lastnight..I was so captivated by it and the waves and the color of the water and just everything..Then when it got dark,Omg they had northern lights there just lighting up the whole sky and so much room to surf I got so caught up that I was forgetting about taking pictures..I was home from work sick again last night and I bet I spent a good four or more hours there just enjoying the atmosphere.. I was on the board and in the water the whole time I was there.. Look at these waves! I had to watch for a little bit to see how they were doing it since i never surfed in SL before.. This wave was a lot of fun with that curls..There is like three big waves..they are all fun but getting in that curl was really fun hehehe It just looks like a tsunami coming. they also have these bubble rides or something up there that you can I guess click on and go up there..When I go back I'm gonna go up there for when the northern lights start up..they really look amazing and brilliant..I just can't believe I didn't get a picture of them.. oh yea and there is another wave..hehehehe also I forgot to get in black dragon to take any,but I was just so overcome by how beautiful this sim is..I'm gonna look into seeing if I can move there..It's just beautiful..I'm gonna get better pictures next time since I'll make it a point..I just didn't expect this place.. They did just such a great job on everything..

    Saw this on Facebook and truly LOL - If you don't get it, research "Wile E. Coyote". The PC folks would probably disallow the cartoon these days because it is "too violent".

    Thread necroed already four times: 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2018. Now we need to let it sleep for about six months so it can be necroed once again.

    I would say mesh. While I am glad I learned to make and texture mesh, and it makes SL look better, much of what made SL so attractive creatively was lost.

    This looks great! And yay for another convert! I find the Black Dragon solution to alpha channel overlap to be a little overzealous, and the blur can be a little too much for pics like this. What I started doing is taking two identical snaps (ctrl+alt+F to freeze the world), one with "alphas into depth" (one of the DoF checkbox options) on and one with it off, and then layering them with a 30-70% opacity in editing. It doesn't always work, especially when the hair is in front of plants, but can help add some depth to the hair while avoiding the "flickering" effect you can get with the option turned on. eg + = This example isn't the best, because the left picture (alphas into depth turned on) doesn't have much alpha channel overlap, so probably would have been fine as a pic regardless. But I still think it helps give the hair a sense of depth, and looks pretty great. I do the same. I find Firestorm performs better for "everyday" stuff, but Black Dragon in "photo mode" runs far smoother with much better results than Firestorm. Plus I can't get music to play in Black Dragon, although all other sound works fine, so I've probably broken a setting somewhere. It also means that I don't really have to change the graphics settings on either viewer, which is great because I'm really lazy and would otherwise forget to turn stuff back on/off after taking a shot.

    Ending the third party exchanges for Linden dollars caused a lot of people problems and upset at the time. I know a few people that left over it because they can't use Paypal and had no way of purchasing Linden Dollars or cashing them out.

    Greetings! This thread has been locked. 1. No one can create a "Forum Account". 2. The only people who can post on the SL Community Forums are those who have created a Second Life Account. 3. Issues with Profile Search has nothing to do with the Forums. If you cannot find an SL Avatar on the web profiles page or by using in world search, it doesn't mean that the SL Account doesn't exist.

    Walk away and don't go back. If there are HUDs involved, detach them. SL is all about what you want it to be. If you don't want to role play, then don't.

    Imagine someone in a similar position to you; only having a vague idea of how all this works, very little actual experience or teaching but wants to explore and learn more. Now strip out every ounce of self-awareness, and replace it with complete arrogance and misplaced confidence. That's your average SL "master". A bunch of idiots that have watched too much 50 shades, and don't understand the difference between domination and abuse (hint: neither does anyone connected to that *****heap of a series). Be very wary who you "chain" yourself to, and always put your own happiness and health above the feelings of any master/mistress you meet online. I'd check out Twisted Orchid. It might not be the place you're after and it might not have the answers you seek, but at the very least it's a lovely social venue for the BDSM-inclined. They used to do fairly regular munches, but those seem to have dried up recently. I went through a similar period of exploration, and came to the conclusion that I'm definitely on the vanilla side of things - and it's totally okay to realise that - but a few of the friends I made there were a crucial part of that journey for me.

    Skell is too modest to recommend his own blog, so I do it. http://www.virtualbloke.com/ Skell is in the inworld support group for the Catwa heads, and I learn a lot from reading his posts about the various heads. His Flickr is full of male looks that's a great fashion source for men in SL. https://www.flickr.com/photos/skelldagger/with/43653180242/

    Prims exported as mesh and then dumped back into SL is ... a terrible idea. Make a rough item in SL, export that to blender, create your object in blender with the guide you have from SL. Blender takes some time to learn, just keep grinding those tutorials .. it will all come together. We all had to do this.

    I'm gonna have to get that viewer..Is it on the 3rd party list? That picture looks amazing ETA: Well that one made me update our geforce drivers that we have been lazy about updating..hehehehe It seems to have a lot of the SL viewer things in it..A lot of it looks really nice..I love all the options.. For moving around all the time though I'll probably have to stay with Firestorm since I'm used to those controls and use black dragon for pictures.. It will be nice to have a viewer that is mainly for photography..

    No need for a female skin to get your real life look, Eccose. If I were you I would demo Catwa's 'Victor' and 'Skell' Bento heads, as those have starting shapes that you'll be able to tweak using the face sliders to get very close to your real life look. If you don't want to spend L$5000 on a Bento head, then the Catwa basic 'Justin' head is fairly close as well, and only L$900, but it can only be stretched in four directions; there's no slider customisation. For skins I would look at Insol, who have brought out a couple of beautiful smooth and pale skins recently. Matching body appliers can be found at Bold & Beauty (if you opt for a mesh body; you appear quite slim, so I'd suggest either Slink Physique or Signature Geralt for a body). Another possibility is Avi-Glam, so have a look at both of those places and pick up some demos. This is Insol's 'Tyson' skin in Tone 01 on the Catwa 'Skell' head: As for those fierce brows, check out Identity Body Shop. They had almost-identical ones out at Hipster Men's Event a few months back, which should be in their mainstore by now. (I don't think they have their brows in their Marketplace store, so you'll need to look at their inworld store.) For the light facial hair, try CDC Creations. Their beards are tintable, and their '46' one (pic here) might work well for you. Alternatively, Mister Razzor's 'Jordan' beard (also tintable - pic here) is similarly light, but has a more defined and thinner 'tache. (Note that, because Skell's hair is dark in those images, I've tinted his facial hair dark. You can just as easily get a much lighter colour. A tintable beard will apply completely white, so you just need to find the RGB colours you want, and input them to tint it.) For the hair, try Stealthic. One of their styles (I think it's called something like 'Obscura') is similar to how yours is in your first picture. Hope that helps get you started.

    Yesterday, when I posted my response, my smiley window had a Skin Tone option. Today, I don't see that option. Yesterday, I was posting from home - today from work -- though in both cases it is the Chrome browser. Do others see a skin tone option in the smiley box? In the pic below, I noted where I saw it last night.

    Yes the default movement controls are different, but it is easy to change. Under preferences you can find "key bindings" and reassign movement keys as you like. That seems to be the number one complaint from people trying it! Plus avatar complexity numbers are wierd...

    I think this was probably before 2012 but that website is only good if you're browsing, but no good if you're looking for something specific, which is what I tried to do. So I'll mention it anyway. Even though it didn't involve me, the biggest controversy from my point of view was when LL started selling a sim type with reduced capacity. I forget what the sim type was called, but it was more than an OpenSpace sim. People asked LL if it was ok to do certain things on the sims, and LL said yes it is. People were even told, "that's what they are for". Then, after selling a load of them, LL realised that they had made a mistake and claimed that people were using them for things that they weren't intended to be used for - things like clubs and such, which are the very things that people were told it's ok to do on them, and "that's what they are for". And LL changed it all. I don't remember if they stopped selling them, or made rules as to what could no longer be done on them. It was like... LL: "Buy these cheaper sims. You can do 'this and that' with them." USER: "Oh goody. I'll take some." LL: "Thank you for your money, but you're not allowed to do 'this and that' with the sims." USER: "WHAT???!!!!" I think that LL reimbursed, but it was a huge controversy at the time.

    I remember a lot of what everyone has mentioned! The age verification, copybotting, the exodus to Zindra which I think coincided with the teen grid closing. I never noticed but the opening of SL to free accounts was a big upheaval apparently. I also recall a few smaller things like Last Call closing, or Gala getting knocked out and even the Sexgen beds becoming free.

    I am not a football fan at all, but my husband is, and he has been a die-hard Vikings fan since he was junior high age. Living in what is broadly Forty-Niner or Raiders territory, we don't come across very many Vikings fans.
