  1. For me is the hair before anything else, then everything follows. Even something like this is not quite there yet and this one is several levels above.
  2. In SL? No, not even close, not even with all the latest skins that are made out of real pictures (the face at least) those would be the ones that could have a hope to come close but it all falls apart when you look a complete picture, even if it is a close up with a blurry back ground. Although I would guess different people have different levels of tolerance before they start experiencing that.
  3. I find that the easiest way to find things in search is by looking on the Groups tab. Anything else will sometimes return no results, even if you copy paste the correct name, let alone if you only manage to get it close... In groups (for some reason) the search function works a lot better, when you find the right group you can open the profile of the creator and on that profile you often find the direct link to the place you wanna go.
  4. Don't forget to mention the Default Hair aka Bald Hair aka Eyebrow Fixer (what ever the creator decided to call it) these have a massive impact on the shape of the eyebrows and wearing the wrong one can cause the eyes to look droopy and melted.
  5. It's simple, these add ons change the shape of the area (ence why you are complaining) so if they make their clothes to accommodate this, those clothes will look poorly fit on people that don't use these addons. As is there are already leading mesh body brands that get things made for them and then every other body just gets a (often poorly) ported version, because content creators don't have the resources (or will) to port clothes properly. The idea they would start making a specific version of their clothes to accommodate both the regular mesh bodies and the augmented ones with these add ons is not something they would be willing to do. As many people here have mentioned, you should be detaching them when you are not using them anymore, that will make your avatar lighter in geometry, textures and scripts.
  6. I can tell you the Belleza Jake body you can adjust foot size with the shape slider, and this will translate into the size of any rigged footwear.
  7. @Lindal Kidd I had no idea there were silent bite vampire games in SL, but after Bloodlines that doesn't surprise me.
  8. It's simple, think of bloodlines as a pyramid scheme. Because of that in the old days A LOT of these bloodline players would just go to popular places and spam pretty much anyone with bite requests, because "the more you bite the merrier!" A lot of people had no clue what all this was and they were getting these prompts every few minutes from people they didn't know, and even if they kept pressing Deny over and over again it was still annoying to get these constantly and THAT was the major objection people had, not their names being listed outside of SL since the vast majority of targets didn't even know that was a thing. The free Garlic Necklace stops all this, but as far as I can remember that came out quite a while later thanks to all the complains bloodlines was getting. The problem with all this is, and this shouldn't go without saying, is people that didn't want to participate in the game (or even know what the hell it was) had to actively take steps to get out of it, which needless to say should NOT be the case. No one should be required to look something up so they can opt out of it. The aforementioned garlic necklace wasn't a common knowledge thing and for that a lot of people just settle with pressing Deny a couple dozen times a day, and even if someone told them about it they were still expected to get it and wear that scripted object made by some people they didn't know and probably didn't even like. With all that a lot of clubs just labeled "bite requests" as harassment (rightly so) and some places carry it on till today. If you can imagine getting a dozen or so random friend requests a day, you can understand how it was.
  9. As far as I know, and depending on the group, they still do all that. Perhaps in a more controlled environment were they set up the scenarios with people they know rather than relying on randomly approaching other people that they don't, which more often than not never ends well or at least it's not a fun experience. As you've mention, both RL and in on SL these groups have other missions, in SL in particular they tend to focus on what works best and is more enjoyable.
  10. I can do you one better, there are groups in SL dedicated to SAR that operate all over the grid, normally in the public waterways. You can find some of these groups in world, there are two which are particularly active and one of them sounds like just what you are looking for, look up the group named United States Navy SL created by Izzy Harcassle and take it from there.
  11. I would say it is probably easier to find people in world for that since that is a very very common RP theme, do the point I would say it is over done.
  12. So you're using anecdotal evidence of a small sample size to prove my estimate wrong, by a landslide no less! I can always present you mine, which is a few hundreds of SL users that I've help set up SL over the years, part of that help includes them sending me their system specs and over 95% of them have laptops with no discrete GPU. So my sample pool being vastly larger than yours puts the statistical evidence on my side, which since LL doesn't do hardware surveys or at least do not make those public is the only thing we have to go by, but I would love to see you prove there are over 100 concurrent users of SL right now running it on RTX cards.
  13. Besides the temperature that has been mentioned, are you running it on battery or plugged in? Even when it's new, it's not a good idea to run a laptop on battery while on SL, for several reasons but especially when with age your battery starts getting degraded. If you are looking for a program to read temperatures, try "Open Hardware Monitor" I'm not gonna paste a link because I don't think these forums allow that, but look for the .org URL, and no place else. It's free, it's light, doesn't need to be installed and it tells you a load of information about your system.
  14. You know when you put it like that you are belittling the suffering of people that live in much, MUCH worse places. How bad can it really be when there's no shortage of people trying to get in there by any means necessary? Just something for you to think about.
