  1. Agreed. Sometimes it seems like things will never appear. The more complex coalesced seem the most problematic. Simple "one prim" boxes are fine for me. It can't be the "weight" of the mesh as I have the same issues with my stuff and I make some very low complexity items.
  2. That is why I have a color swatch there. That IS the Pantone "khaki" :D. You don't have to go to Google. LOL. But I DO understand what you mean. It is hard to decide what is "taupe" and "what is khaki" etc. Where does violet end and purple begin? So you can go by what Pantone thinks or what YOU think. The idea is to have fun. Personally I am trying to get as CLOSE to Pantone's definition as I can "and" not go out and buy something. I do have to admit that I am keeping some gifts that I might not because of the color (for the future) and as I am deciding on what colors t
  3. Almost all the pay groups that I feature I have joined when it was free. I did join Minimal long ago as they give out some really nice backdrops. And back then it was 50 lindens to join. I guess that I have always had a "thing" about groups. I have never had a store group and I never wanted one. When groups were NEW in SL, they were all about connecting with people. Then, some retailers came into the picture and they became a way to increase traffic (and move up in search) and then someone decided to charge a fee to join so that folks wouldn't jump around in groups so much (most all were free
  4. Yes it does. :D. Many calendars are group only and many have fees. There is at least one place that has a free group to join but then charges 99 lindens for the "gifts". Obviously it didn't make my list. There is also a list on teleporthub.com and FabFree. Fabfree grouped the place according to pay or free and 24 or 12 day calendars. There was another very lovely (and completely free but there is a group to join) bit of clothing at Black Bird Lace again. I hadn't heard of that store before but so far it has some of the nicest gifts IMO. I just scrolled UP and read all your
  5. So I worked WAAAAAAY too many hours on Advent much in the middle of the night and tired. Hoping to sleep in tomorrow (fingers crossed) so I am posting a few hours early for the color of the week. Remember you can make up colors any time. Not that many rules here. And the color is ---- khaki Being a neutrals loving gal this one was easy for me. Don't worry there are plenty of tough ones for me in the future. Here is my styling for the week of December 2.
  6. The simple answer is that you do it in the land tab and it costs $30 lindens a week. Then people can find you if they use PLACES to search (I do a lot). You can only do that however if you own the land. Sometimes a landlord will do it for you and add that 30 lindens to the rent. You can also make a classified add for the area. If you use places you can make a PLACES PAGE. I have them but I don't think many people use them. It was a good idea that didn't take off.
  7. I was going to post this in How Does Your Avatar Look Today and then I thought it would be fun to see other people's favorite Advent gifts (and know where they came from LOL). So here is my favorite of the day. There were LOTS OF LOVELY things out to grab, but me -- I am a casual gal and summer will eventually be here again. This from BLACK BIRD LACE . It comes with a huge texture change hud.
  8. I figured that would be the case for some folks -- the Kawaii guys included. I worked hard in November and did all the colors for the upcoming December (whew) since I knew I already had a TON of stuff going on and time would be tight. While I made it though OK (barely) on one odd pastel color (not telling) the hardest color for me so far was GREEN. I literally took me ALL DAY. This is GREEN GREEN, like Irish Green and while I had some lovely muted greens and olives I apparently am not a fan of GREEN GREEN and neither are the designers with huds that I frequent LOL.
  9. Then you will have to up your budget or move to another grid that is cheaper (Sinespace - Sansar - Opensim). You will not find what you want here. We have told you that. You need to listen LOL.
  10. Wow that is really lovely! Thanks for adding.
  11. Can some of you over there tell me what this is about? Been making my shop into snowland today and evidently missed the excitement. They are all full
  12. Congrats. I agree those extra 50 prims (^^ land impact) make a huge difference. I have leftovers too. A very lovely present.
  13. On a more serious note :D. My Maitreya hud isn't working correctly now. The alphas show up on the hud as they should but not on the avatar. I have to relog in order to get the parts that need to disappear --- to disappear. I have had some of the instant crashes of late (black screen relog) but I have pinpointed that down to either heavy mesh, textures or scripts of the AREA I am in. I have been checking out Advent places and two of them I crashed instantly upon arrival. They aren't making my list obviously LOL. But again, I agree that isn't the cloud but a sim (area) issue.
  14. Mine is about $6500 lindens a week and that is a homestead. There are some cheaper ones (not much cheaper) but the ones I found came "decorated" which I didn't want (and you might). You can find all the big rental places by checking the classifieds. I am pretty sure that is well over $100 US. I just pay in lindens :D.
  15. Well I can't see much difference in your screenshot (textures get compressed a lot when uploaded to the forums so that is likely it) but I am thinking that it MAY not be "you" so waiting until folks come back to work on Monday may be your only solution. You could try the beta grid and see if things are better there -- assuming you were uploading on the main grid. Now and then it just isn't "us" :D. I noticed on hitting the publish button that this is your first post, so in case you really are new and haven't uploaded textures to SL before then they ALWAYS lose quality in compar
  16. Never got out of beta and apparently abandoned. I used the original for a decade with good results, but not the new Bento one. Orwar says it "can be made to work" so he is your best bet for an answer. Maybe reference him in a post to get his attention? I made a lot of poses in Sansar using Blender and Medhue made a tutorial (and a much improved rig) with 2.8. But Sansar and SL are different rigs with different rules and it is DIFFICULT to do things here without Avastar now that we have Bento. That's really just the bottom line. Sorry. Let us know if you ever g
  17. 2 land impact for the holidays. The Arcade in December. Sign is linked to wrapping paper. Stool which was really big -- scaled down a bit. Oh what fun we can have this holiday season.
  18. This thread HAS been told a time or two that is for conversations about role play. Beyond that the rule is pinned to the top of this forum. Always good to read those. You cannot removed a thread post but a moderator certainly might. Here is the info you requested. Now you know.
  19. Yes knew that. Thanks. It was pretty bad for me :D. Would have been nice to have it finished. Website has been gone for quite awhile now.
  20. https://chicatphilsplace.blogspot.com/2020/04/eep-versus-windlight-another-new-normal.html Official chart towards the bottom. I can't seem to find that page this morning :D.
  21. Well I heartily disagree with that. Second Life has it own rules and "generic" isn't enough. I looked for and watched all the animation tutorials I could find using Blender before finally buying Avastar. So, if someone actually FINDS one that works, I would really like to see the link appear on this thread :D. EDIT: There are also lots of posts on this same subject on these forums with no actual answer that I have seen :D.
  22. Blender doesn't work well by itself for poses -- especially if you want Bento poses (fingers and such). You really do need Avastar (a paid add-on). You CAN make non-bento poses using QAvimator. The main site is gone but it looks like you can pick it up in a few places still. There are tutorials for making poses in QAvimator. A search with Google should give you both download spots as well as some of the tutorials made. QAvimator exports as bvh files. Avastar exports as anim files. Both work for SL You can also find a very old (but still pretty valid) tutorial on making poses
