  5. Brilliant! What a clever idea. I did just that. It gave me 982. Thanks very much, Moira. Thanks, all. Now I'm off to sell some land. Edit: We found a nice 1,168 section that we can sell off. Thanks again to all of you for your help!

  6. I don't come here that much right now, but I've been upgrading to Lelutka Evo, and in one case I tried EvoX. What I've found is that EvoX doesn't appear to be significantly better in appearance than Evo, and the X version needs skin and BoM make up, although appliers still work. I prefer BoM because I like to save my complete outfits so I can do rapid changes, rather than having to revisit appliers with each outfit change. That's just my way. Anyways....from the left and clockwise its Erin Evo, Avalon Evo, Fleur EvoX, Lily Evo.

  8. Work freely and speak freely at your own pace. Adult cage club teaches new comers people coming back to sl shows how to use tip jar and pole it's free can use self use no fee. You can ask one of the helpers if you need help. Starters places: Sexy nude beach , adult cage club , sweet domination club , house of v. Can even do Fetish modeling , Gogo Dancer , burlesque. But at any place new to good to read the fine print and the rules and so on to see how the vibe of the place is how people treat others. You want to be in a good vibe tribe Atmosphere where you feel at home. Each place is different, try it if not for you walk slowly away just say thanks just things came up and have to go. Go to places to be freely to find friendship of companionship. As many gave you advice above really great. . The classy to casual erotica in the lifestyle places good start also. My friend started at the trophy room more women are freely to be themself not really a selling point but can give bit enlightenment and get you to the upper in things she learned photography , boudoir , burlesque ,Grow on fine art & literature as aConnoisseur , Classy intelligent conversation mixing and mingle with people , Finding the right people at right places at the right time. Or you can try the auctions but find ones that allow you to be you and have a say in who you pick what both agree on. Not everyone at auctions is looking for sha bang bang but conversation some go dance with exchange of education in the lifestyle, taken in hand lead the way companion, emotionally invested before getting hooked. I had a friend did slave auction a lad bought her poster board for 10k he wanted to get to know her win her over first , go dancing , saved her from a mess , guided her took her hand cherished her for a week was not about pixel bang just good company , conversation and the adventure. If you wanna take further relationships that up those who for each and Their own. Sl is whatever you make it Just have fun you don’t have to do things you don’t feel like doing but set boundaries Trust is earned with energy shown can say no if not for you. Someone should respect you as person as goes both ways not go after over your body even if adult and sex connection and attraction. Just because your women deserve respect as goddesses you are, they should be glad to be part of your temple. Little Classy to casual with erotica dress to please you first for you but embrace it. Sheer lace , and dots , Hats and gloves and frilly things little art to it whatever comes to your mind what inspires you. Keeping to the imagination showing very little, not too much , don't give them everything or they take it and run , let them think and slowly work the way let them win you over if they are willing to have this gem. Don't have to beg or chase, be discrete but open, use your mind and your body to let the energy set you free.Don't have to put everything in profile you can be very discrete as well put in note card put in a blog keeping bit positive and alive. Little inspiration ,Art of seduction , Luxury & self seduction , erotica.

  9. I'm a casual player of SL for 5 years and I never really been in an SL strip club. But now I want to earn some $L in game and also use my huge collection of lingerie I never use lmao. And make friends. I did look into what it takes to be a stripper in SL years back, so I know about emoting and such. However, one thing that has changed is that whenever I go to any clubs now (ones with strippers and tip jars), it's empty! Back in 2018 I could go to a random club and see tons of strippers. 1. I'm looking for a strip club that isn't dead, but also beginner friendly.I don't think I could apply for LUSH (if their applications are even open) because my laptop isn't the best of the best. I works fine most of the time but obviously if there's a ton of people my game will lag. But I also don't want to apply for a new club that may or may not make it because from what I learned you need to buy your own board that costs $L100 a week. I wouldn't want to risk losing money. (No, money is not the sole reason I'm doing it. I also think that it'll be fun, and hey, no one wants to lose money) 2. BTW, I was trying to apply for this one club, but it asked me to join an "application" group that costed $L50, and that $L50 was "to show that you're serious/dedicated", and it's non-refundable. Is that normal? 3. P.S. which headshot looks better

  13. Hmmm, does SL already have an Achnasheen? Achnashellach? Altnahara? Ardnamurchan? Arisaig? And that's barely touching the A's - really a wealth of possibilities here! From my medieval lit days, I'd throw in (non-Scottish) Munsalvesche (the Grail Castle) and Parsifal. And Laxdaela, Grettir and Njal from the Icelandic sagas.

  15. I was thinking about you, @Pussycat Catnap"Oh, she will like this body because it is so low in vertices and triangles".😃 And I know you don't like Maitreya breasts, the only other (human) body that's reasonably low lag. I am sure this body need special rigged piercings and harnesses. I hope it will succeed because Belleza has not updated in years and their Freya has too high amount of vertices and triangles. Plus they have not got the improved neck. I was hoping this could replace Freya as a curvy body for those who find Kupra unrealistic. Even if my avatar is skinny and don't need this, I welcome another well made body because we need more diversity.

  16. Hi, @Sugah Pancake! Emoting isn't hard, but it does take some practice. Basics: A forward slash followed by "me" begins an emote: /me. Some third party viewers allow you to substitute a colon for /me, which will save a lot of keystrokes over time. When you type an emote, put yourself in the third person, like this: "/me picks up her coffee cup and takes a sip." This comes out in chat as "Lindal Kidd picks up her coffee cup and takes a sip." If you forget and use first person, it looks wrong: "Lindal Kidd pick up my coffee cup and take a sip". Alternate emotes with chat lines. This isn't a hard and fast rule; do what's natural in the moment. But your chat comes out more realistic and descriptive if you can mix it up. For example: Lindal Kidd: Hi, Sugah! How do you like my new dress? Lindal Kidd grins and does a quick twirl Sugah Pancake: Oh, I love it! Where did you get it? Lindal Kidd: It was on sale at Bluberry. Come on, we'll go see if they have it in your color! Lindal Kidd grabs your hand and tugs you along (Teleport to Bluberry and send you a teleport offer) If you must combine some "spoken' text and an emote, you can put the speech in quotation marks. Example: Lindal Kidd runs to the sale display. "Over here, Sugah!" Emotes are used to enhance your communication. They're a way to convey emotions and actions that you might not have a gesture or a facial expression handy for. You can even allude to objects that aren't present, because you don't happen to have one handy. "Lindal Kidd raps your fingers coyly with her fan as you reach for the chocolates". That would work best if I actually had a fan, but even if I don't, it's descriptive of my intent: to keep you from grabbing the last chocolate; but more importantly, to establish who's the boss in this situation. Anyone who bases a relationship solely on another person's skill at emoting probably isn't worth moping over anyway.

  17. Visually this looks like it's meeting the same need Kupra was - but without looking like a parody of a human body. As in I can make 'normal' shapes with this. And given how extremely low lag it is, it almost looks like it was made by a furry maker - and for this alone I want this body to succeed.

  22. Linden Lab did invest into a “Third Life”. It was called Sansar and many SL programmers and millions of dollars were spent. It failed. Though it wasn’t designed to be a true replacement for SL. It was designed for public venues and creating experiences. With Facebook investing billions into it’s own metaverse it might be better to figure out how to link SL to that new metaverse.

  23. Might make sense to frequently look at the list of newly arrived regions http://gridsurvey.com/index.php?r=a pick out the ones that names sounf like fantasy and visit them to check. I just looked at Moon Stone ... no Linden homes!... Mystic Wonderland no access but map doesen't look like it ...

  24. Indeed! Sorry. The splendiferous @Tyche Shepherd invented the grid survey, and last I heard was still honcho-ing it. Over time parts of the website have become out of date, but it still provides a weekly survey of all the regions on the grid, including very useful lists of those regions that arrived during the week, and those that departed. Note that renaming a region counts as BOTH a departure and an addition, which is why you often see SSPE regions leaving. When we owned a region, I always enjoyed seeing that a gridsurvey bot had visited. Once I was setting a landing point and one landed on my head. Everything in the SSP regions is off-limits to residents -- we just speculate about what's going on there. But, I'm sure Moonstruck will agree, Daniel's guesses are VERY well-educated!

  25. I've now received two private emails from other girls slamming me for either saying this out loud, or claiming it's BS. To the one slamming me, I just want people to understand the truth behind the business, there's no reason to hide these facts. To the one who claimed I'm BSing, you are less than 6 months old here ... I have more than 10 years off and on, so I do know what I'm talking about. For example, here's the stats from my last two-and-a-half hours worked at one of these very popular places, one morning hour and one evening (SLT+3) ... Morning shift: 90 minutes, average 24 girls and one guy dancing/escorting. Total male customers appeared? 2 Evening shift: 60 minutes, between 22 and 30 girls (they were popping in and out like crazy). Total male customers? 3 I'm not making this the bad/slow parts of this life up, sadly. There are very few places where the number of customers looking to be entertained is anywhere near the number of available dancers on a consistent basis. The good sex clubs like Breathe and Lusthouse usually get a good ratio of guys/girls, as do some of the specialty hook up places like Queen of Spades, but the strip and escort places often never do these days. Even if you are in a smaller strip/escort club with maybe 3-4 other girls? The times you'll see more than 2 guys in the club at the same time will be considered rare. All clubs may have moments of busy, but it's usually a slow grind. I have no worry spending that time not making any L, because my freelance escorting regulars and new clients who find me keep me fed. If I was relying on dancing/stripping for my sole source of income, I'd have quit this line of work long ago. PS. Voice or cam girls can make a decent living but there is a LOT of competition.

  26. At the moment the best money you make at Lovense enabled clubs, IF you have a Lovense toy that is. The way it works is this: You wear your Lovense toy in RL. The tip jar is connected to the toy and every time somebody tips you the toy reacts for a few seconds, depending on the amount being tipped. Fun.

  27. Quite true. Strip and escort places, especially the ones with a brothel vibe and side biz, are less trafficked because guy (and girls) come into there only for the one thing, and it's usually not socializing beyond hooking up. Lots of good dance opportunities in more mainstream clubs, and there's less pressure, without the need to strip/escort.

  28. This is a tough one. I've been off and on more than a decade now and usually in that field, including managing. Currently freelance escorting, but that's for my own reasons. To answer some of your questions ... Yes, many clubs will require you to rent an ad board at their location for a very nominal fee. This fee is usually less than a single decent tip, so you're never out any money. It's still a weird practice to me though, shouldn't the club be buying/featuring me an ad board to advertise that I am working there? Often times there are applications and interviews to go through. They want to see how you behave, emote, your personality, what your avatar looks like (clothed and naked), etc. Some of them have been harder than some of my RL interviews, which again seems unnecessary. Check me out, see how I do, if I don't work out, fire me. To require formal interviews and two hours of chatting is silly; it's easy to tell if a girl is any good in 30 minutes on stage just watching her emote and behave. And yes, application fees are not unknown. I've paid them, and also refused to pay them. In the end, they feel scammy. Here's my 11 years of dancing/escorting experience, hire me or not. Like ad boards, just another way for the club owner to make cash to run their place. Required hours. Most good clubs will require some commitment. Usually like 4-6 hours per week. And for the love of anything, don't go AFK when you are performing. But don't kid yourself, those 4-6 hours will feel like work when the customers are thin in the chairs. Tips. Most good clubs will take some small percentage of your tips. If it's more than 20%, the club can go rot, imho. Freelance clubs. There are a number of large, popular, well-known freelance places where anyone can dance/entertain. The issue with these is that there are often 20-30 girls dancing, and a single guy or two as customers. I have never seen any place with as many customers as girls in these places, not even close. Even at the biggest two of these. If anyone tells you different, they're BSing you. Furthermore, most clubs and freelance places have rules about no IMing guys directly, to save the place becoming a feeding frenzy of desperate girls slamming a poor guy with 20 IMs all at once. You can only say hi in local chat until someone approaches you and IMs first. This does mean everyone has a fair shot, but also you're just one of 20+ semi-naked girls hoping for a nibble. Owners. As someone who has danced through managed, I've seen them all. Misogyny is rampant, sadly, among the male club owners. the assumption that you'll "put out" for the male staff is a common, sad theme, even in some of the better known places. I'm there to entertain customers and have fun, not fend off persistent advances from some horny club owner. Run from those places. They are pits of drama and an environment of girl-vs-girl for popularity. And while many of the female owners are chill, I've also been in places where the women owners can often be far more toxic and mean than the men can be. It's a hard business to run, and girls and clubs are a dime-a-dozen. You talk about clubs not being dead. Hmmm. I have news for you, even the popular ones? You can be on stage 90 minutes with another few girls and not see a single guy. Often. The other thing is a guy will pop in, say nothing, then leave 30 seconds later. this goes for big popular clubs and small ones. Fancy, well-run places, and dives. There are so many to choose from and this isn't 5-10 years ago when stripping was at it's peak. And while there are regular guys at every club, it gets expensive to visit frequently and have to tip all the time, without even the cost of escorting added in if the guy wants to take a girl home. The other girls. One thing that weirds me out in this line of work is the diverse range of avatars in any one club. I'm not talking ethnicity here, and I am certainly not curve shaming, but I've been in (good) clubs where the girls range from nearly pre-teen look through to tatted up nearly 7' tall biker chicks with HH cup breasts, little fairy wings, and a butt the size of a wide lazy boy chair. It takes all kinds, but you can not count on consistency of looks and if that's important to you, check the place and staff out before signing on. Ask the club owner about turnover of staff, traffic stats, how much the average girl earns in tips (and keep a spreadsheet of your hours, tips etc so you know if you're earning what you want), how long they have been in business, customer numbers and how much they spend on average, etc. If the owner won't share those with you, they are hiding something. And don't let the "that's a business thing" line of BS stand ... it's SL. Remember, if they are putting you through an interview, interview them right back. You get to ask hard pointed questions too, you know. Give me the info I need to commit and make a decision, or go away. Honestly, it's not anything you have to hide, unless you're not what you say you are. I've seen that one countless times. If you want to reach out to me in game I'll give you some recommendations of decent clubs, but many of them will have some degree of the above requirements. Hope this has helped somewhat. The second picture, btw. ps. Come and stop by my small freelance club sometime and chat. I'll tell you anything you want to know about this crazy business.

  30. Yeah. Conservative click-bait is always trying to say California is taking 'ur freedoms, ur women (gonna make them marry black folks or some'thn), ur guns, and gonna eat ur babies...' Best to avoid some forms of "journalism"... Being a Californian... I get a dozen articles a day telling me how cops are going to murder everyone, white people are on a rampage again, Karen is coming for me, conservatives are going to force me to eat meat, all folks of color are being sent to prison camps over in Texas, and so on... ... And I'm smart enough to know not to click on that bait (most of the time, they get me now and then too... some of that bait is VERY clicky... ) I suggest the folks on the other side of the line would do well to ALSO not click on the bait they get, so we can get past all these silly attempts to make us afraid of each other...

  31. Cloud avatars is a very specific issue and one I've seen an increase in support requests for. The viewer displays an avatar as a cloud when it's lacking one of the 4 core components of an avatar - Shape - Skin - Linden Hair - Linden Eyes. Don't confuse this requirement with inventory, they are separate systems. You can have a fully loaded inventory, be looking at the required parts AND still be a cloud. This is almost always caused by packet loss. The region sent you the data and it wasn't received, so you're left hanging waiting for something that will never arrive. The solution is to (aggressively) lower the bandwidth slider, especially if you're on wifi. It wont affect the speed anything rezzes (textures will load and decode just as fast as they can), but it will tell the region to calm down a little when sending one time information. If set really low it can cause crowds to take longer to load in .. given that this is at its worst when arriving at a new region and the viewer is busting it's guts with a million other problems .. it's probably not a bad side effect, just perceptually backwards as there is an expectation for avatars to load in before the scenery (when really it's always going to be the other way around).

  35. Chris is right. Cycling your hard drives up from a cold start every day or more will wear out the motor bearings. Older hard drives did not have the temperature compensation to always read correctly when cold, if they were formatted at normal hot operating temperatures, resulting in read/write errors when starting. While precision HD manufacturing has improved in 50 years, hard drives are still a weak link. They will last longer if you keep them spinning than the strains of a cold startup. Same with power supplies. Ever noticed the current surge that makes a thud when you first turn on your power supply. That's all those electrolytic filter capacitors charging up for the first few seconds. Most Power Supplies fail when you turn them ON. If you are lucky only an internal fuse will blow, or a circuit breaker will trip. I've been building and operating multiple PC's since 1978. For years I always had four systems running 24/7 as part of my business. If I exclude those boat anchor SEA80 drives (Seagate 80 MB HD that would shake the floor when the head would seek) I have had exactly two hard drive failures in the last 50 years. One was an off brand Chinese that went out of business, and the other was a 60 GB MaxTor that finally started giving errors after 20 years in service. I retired it last year. I never turn my computers off, unless to clean the heat sinks and fans every 6 months. I have 8 drives running now, the oldest is dated 2008 and the newest is 2018. No danger signs yet - they are run with adequate cooling and never shut down. I also back up new files every 30 mins to the Cloud (IDrive), and entire systems always backed up in case something blows up. So far its been a waste of money, as I've never needed my cloud backup. If your computers only last 10 years, it's because you been power cycling them too much My old Win2K Pro system has been running 24/7 since I built it with new parts, in 2003 ! Well I did shut it down once, when I moved in RL back in 2007, for 2 days. It serves it's purpose as a music server/streamer. Not connected to a web browser of course or SL (haha).

  36. SL has been around for almost 2 decades. During that time it has changed. We have moved from basic Ruth/Roth classic (aka system) avatars and only system and prim clothes through 2 or 3 generations of mesh bodies and clothes. A problem for you is all the products from those eras are still on sale and advertised. The newest stuff is labeled Bento and BOM. Appliers and Omega adapters are a generation back but still have uses with the newest products. Understanding how these things fit together and what works with what requires some understanding of how 3D modeling works in virtual worlds. The Lab and many users try to make it as simple as possible, but simplifying often is misleading. You figure all this out by experimenting with demo models of bodies and clothes. Ask specific questions. Also, things like appliers have lots of uses, i.e.; putting skin on the previous generation of bodies and heads as well as putting a paint job on a helicopter or boat. So, statements about appliers need a context and time frame. Providing you all the information in one bite would require a book. So, I suggest you ask questions as you encounter things new to you. For a short explanation and rule of thumb just go with Bento, BOM, and Fitted Mesh, often now just called mesh, as the new stuff you want when buying things. And experiment with demos. Watch the tutorials on YouTube. Remember there are years of tutorials on YouTube. You generally want those made in the last 18 months. SL is complex because of the extensive creative freedom we have. More possibilities means more complexity. Sort of like RL. Freedom and unlimited options means you have MANY decisions to make. With Communism the government makes all those decisions for you, much simpler.
