  1. I enjoy being a bit player. A walk on. An interesting NPC. But most of the RP sims are like 4 rulers and no population or regular people. It takes a big chunk of money to keep these sims going so you gotta let the 'banker' be king i guess.
  2. The general puritanial drift of Western Culture is palpable. The lefties see anything sex-positive as offensive to/exploitive of gender and sexual minorities. Rightists see open display of sexuality as sin. Period.
  3. I like to put on a Pikachu avatar and fly round, randomly engaging people in open chat about politics and religion
  4. I am finding precisely the same thing & I've gone back to using the LL viewer. LL viewer will crash out if it gets overloaded-an then I just reload the viewer. Which I much prefer to having it hang up in lag-limbo while my fan burns. I will be using a mac for another couple years anyway. People in the developed world buying new computers every year contributes to ecological problems, child slavery and a lot of othe bad things. All that Irridium comes from somewhere.
  5. I like it. But at a distance. It can't become something that's about my real life, since I'm not looking for a partner. Somewhere along the line, the focus became 'Voice" and I'm not into giving some guy free phone sex. I thought it was weird back in the 90s when people were going broke paying for it and I think it's weird now. To each their own, but I wish it hadn't become so much about that.
  6. I would try it. Contact me or send an IM or in word notecard if you like.
  7. I am hoping that mesh ultimately is as (or more) modifiable as the original avatars back when I joined up.
  8. If you are referring to me, I should point out that participating in Second Life shouldn't require "learning basic 3D modeling principles". Nor should it require ditching a hundred dollars plus in mesh clothes after a couple years after having to replace all the prim stuff. Fact
  9. The 'what's between the legs' issue is a related topic. I suppose weens are an "M-A" topic which requires default avatars to be as genderless as those GI Joe action figures. Manly in every way but the one that really matters....
  10. With something like SL, ease of use is really a paramount concern. Some people live in virtual space and seem to have endless hours to futz around with their avatars, but I generally have enough time to go clubbing or do roleplays for a couple hours a couple times a week. So my interest in editing each article of clothing is minimal. I've enjoyed this discussion, as prior to, I had next to no idea of the state of things. I was getting a LOT of peer pressure to 'upgrade' to a style of avatar I wasn't impressed with. I am in this for the aesthetics to a large degree and if that means that I have to wait, or eventually just opt out rather than walk around looking like I don't want to look then that's what I'll have to do. At least many of your posts have given me 'ammunition' for discussions with friends enamored of all things mesh.
  11. A lot of good points. The expense is definitely an issue for the average user. The other big issue with mesh avatars alluded to already is the tweaking, torquing and general amount of messing around. It seems as though even if one chooses to just go 100% new and give up one's old inventory of clothes*, you still need to dink around with a lot of appliers and stuff as opposed to the 'pret-a-porter' days where you unpacked the clothing and slapped it on and done. *(a lot of us roleplayers are really attached to particular costumes and outfits - I still have a four year old E.D prim outfit that looks better than almost any mesh costume I've seen out there)
  12. Very true, but I was referring to the skins. I overlay just about any skin from the higher end makers and its invariably a mismatch redolent of those 'hand painted' made in Hong Kong 1970s plastic toys with the eyes painted too big. The area of the skin that's lips is bigger than the shape lips I made. Usually significant so.
  13. Thank you for at leas clarifying some of the issues. It would seem to me that LL needs to take this matter more seriously if they want casual users to come in and plop $$ down for virtual fashions.
