  1. I've used many different Macs in SL over the years and none of them have given the results you mention, so no idea what is going on there. CalWL can be a bit harsh in itself, though the colors are usually kind of balanced and neutral, but try some of the others. I have an M1 mac mini and it does go beyond 'high' on the settings - will go all the way to ultra and shows it quite well, though very slowly if you go to a crowded club. Have you tried enabling support for HiDPI, to see what impact that has? It is specifically for Mac retina screens, which you have on the Macbook.
  2. Pintowit - have you calibrated your monitor yet? If so, that might help. (System Prefs | Display | Colour ) But is this only happening in SL and not elsewhere? If that's the case then you could try changing your windlight settings, or even making your own windlight setting using the new EEP thingy.
  3. I've recently got an M1 Mac Mini, and been comparing it to my old computer, an Intel i5, five years old but with an 8GB graphics card (a 'hackintosh' tower running MacOS Mojave) . I've been getting terrible FPS on the M1 - and logged in with a trusty alt was getting FPS of 42 on the hackintosh and 3.2 FPS on the mac mini. So I compared the Firestorm preferences, and the big difference was that I had 'Enable OpenGL vertex buffer objects' turned off on the M1 but turned on for the hackintosh. When I turned it on for the M1 my FPS immediately shot up into the high 30s. So, if you have an M1,
  4. Optimo - I've already tested the animations and found many that do work. This is an option. It takes time, but you can get good results. The Lelutka animations work on the Genus head and in most cases are better than the Genus animations. Rowan - I suspect the Catwa hud would only work with the Catwa head, though I haven't tried it yet. I'll give it a go, but I suspect that will be the case.
  5. I want to find a face animator hud / AO - or persuade someone to create one. (I’d do it myself but couldn’t script my way out of a paper bag). Why is such a thing needed? Most of us these days have mesh heads that come with a range of animations. The huds that control these tend to be a bit clunky and lack flexibility. You can’t create your own animation sequences effectively. In particular, what I want to do is take the best animations from a series of heads that I own (Catwa, Genus, Lelutka, AK) and blend these into a series of sequences for different occasions. (In truth, I’
  6. I find Discord unuseable. I routinely use a VPN for privacy, but Discord won't let me login when running a VPN without first verifying by email and blah, blah, blah, all of which takes far too long. So I lost interest. Now SL groups are moving to Discord, and I won't be part of the conversation, but I'll survive.
  7. Ardy, where are these regions with zoning restrictions? Any easy way to search for them? Or a list of them all?
  8. Seconds Skins - they disappeared more than a decade ago. I never really liked their skins, they were too 'realistic' for me. But they made the best eyes. I wore them forever - (or at least until mesh heads started to really take off) and would get lots of comments about how they looked 'alive', how they were mesmerising and hypnotic - but they were just being normal eyes, no weirdness involved. Of course, the time came when I got a better graphics card and monitor and everything began to get better, higher resolution textures, all of that, and the Second Skin system eyes had to be put out to p
  9. Thanks everyone. I did lots of logging in and out, but eventually some more coalesced items turned up and one of them contained everything - hundreds of items including all the gacha stuff, land formations, trees etc as well as various boat demos that I didn't even know were rezzed on my land and must have been hiding somewhere. (So that's where all the prim allowance went!) Crisis over. If something similar happens to you, keep checking the lost and found folder and every single coalesced item - they're the ones with the funny multiple box icon. Rez them somewhere friendly - a good
  10. Thanks for advice. I did investigate the coalesced objects - nothing doing there. I realise I should have cleaned up first, but it was my home, I was still living there, and I didn't really expect it to sell that fast.
  11. I recently put my land up for sale. It sold immediately, taking me very much by surprise. The buyer has cleared the land by returning everything of mine. But all my lovely houses - an entire extended Gacha collection called 'Primavera in Toscana' is not in my inventory. It's worth around 8,000 to 9,000 Linden in total, because of rarity value. I'm not very experienced with Gacha because I'm not all that keen on the whole concept but I love that particular set of buildings, so I made an exception. Now it's all gone, however. Has anyone had similar experiences? Or can anyone suggest anything tha
  12. I think flexibility is important. There's a time and a place for longer, considered emotes but nothing can beat a rapid fire conversation where both are in the zone with it and ideally having fun - and being funny. Long sometimes, short sometimes. Novels that are all long paragraphs tend to be a hard read. But if they are all single lines of dialogue, that gets choppy - and dull too. Mix it up, I say. Some people INSIST that all RP must be done their way. I tend to avoid them.
  13. Seems like AvSitter doesn't use the UUID but keeps using the username you had when you bought the item. So that's going to be annoying, and confusing. Now I'll have three names in use: my old username; my new username; and my display name (which admittedly I can get rid of)
