    Second Life on Steam?

    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.

    What are some of your guilty pleasures?

    I like to put on a Pikachu avatar and fly round, randomly engaging people in open chat about politics and religion

    Firestorm is one hell of a memory hog

    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.

    Ladies - what do you think about sex in SL?

    It's all "theater of the mind"

    Ladies - what do you think about sex in SL?

    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.

    LF DnD Giants

    I would try it. Contact me or send an IM or in word notecard if you like.

    Is non-mesh doomed to extinction?

    I am hoping that mesh ultimately is as (or more) modifiable as the original avatars back when I joined up.

    Mesh Avatars Still Suck..so far as I can tell.

    Thank you. I'll give it a try.

    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

    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....

    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.

    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)

    Any good skins out there with normal girl lips?

    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.

    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.
  15. I don't want to look like a giant bug just splatted onto my face while I was landing my airplane. Are there skins out there that have natural looking lips for us laydehz? As opposed to giant swollen beestingers that look like a giant red moth sideways?
