  1. I really like the Reach Out feature, which optionally allows arousal to progress automatically when other Xcite! genitals of the type that appeal to the wearer are close enough, of Xcite! genitals. However, the HUD of the Xcite! X5 is so poorly designed and awkward to use that I'm looking for a replacement. Is there one that has arousal increase and orgasm occur other than by using manual controls?
  2. I agree with you. SL is fantasy, and what's the point of a fantasy that is the same as RL? I am a shemale in SL even though I am a straight male in RL. On the 2nd Life tab of my profile, it says I am a shemale, and on the 1st Life tab, it says I am a straight male. A stranger IMed me recently questioning why I said I was both a shemale and a male. I replied, "SL is fantasy. Dana is fantasy." Broadly speaking, there are two groups of people in SL. There are people who, like you and me, regard their avatars as fictional, fantasy characters and think of SL as roleplay. There are other people who think of their avatars as extensions of themselves and of SL as an extension of their RLs. Conflicts arise when people don't understand this difference and expect everyone else to approach SL the way they do. Of course, there is a spectrum. At one end, there are the numerous people who reveal nothing, or almost nothing, about their RLs. At the other are the few people who have their RL names and phone numbers in their profiles. You can see that there might be problems when someone who is looking for a relationship that can extend into RL gets into s SL relationship with someone who is roleplaying the opposite gender and only finds out after they are in a relationship. The lesson is that roleplayers need to be aware of this difference to avoid hurting people, and the other group needs to be aware of it to avoid getting hurt. It's really not too hard. Most people's profiles make it obvious, and, if it's not and it's important to you, you need to ask.
  3. That link was really helpful. Because of it, I decided to go with the 780Ti, which I already have, since it is so close to the 980, and both are well ahead of the 580 that I am accustomed to.
  4. Thanks, particurly, foir the heads-up about SL2.
  5. I'll be gettinmg a new computer soon, and I want to be sure it runs SL viewers as well as possible. It will be a Haswell-E, Socket 2011-v3, X99 chipset machine with 32 GB RAM, and one SSD for programs and the OS (Windows 7 or Windows 8.1) and another SSD for data. I'm not sure what it would take in terms of a graphics card to assure the best possible performance. Would there be an observable difference bewteen a GTX-580, GTX-780Ti, or a GTX-980?
  6. I tried the things suggested, and they did not work. I filed a ticket. and a scout responded that I should clean my browser cache, etc. Grrrrr. This is occurring on multiple devices with multiple browsers, and they think clearing the cache will fix it.
  7. I opened this account in 2006. I even age vwerified back when Aristotle was doing it. I have my maturity level set to G-M-A in the viewer. Marketplace olly wants me to see G and M products. If I change it to G-M-A, it changes it back. I can't find anything in my MP profile or my account profile to change to fix this. Help!
  8. Thanks:matte-motes-bashful-cute-2:
  9. I have a shape that I made. It lists me as the creator. I would like to export it so I can use it on other grids. Is there any way to do that?
  10. You might try using an ellipsis and hitting enter in the middle of the sentence, like this: heY, you look great... the new hair and eyes really go well together
  11. I understand that sharing IM logs violates the TOS. What I wonder is why. If I send someone a letter or email in RL, it belongs to him to do with as he pleases. If I have IMs sent to email, can I publish them, since they are no lionger in SL? In some US states it is legal for one party to a telephone conversation to record it without the others' knowledge. The recording belongs to him to do with as he wishes. It's always seemed strange to me that the virtual world had more restrictions on this sort of thing than the real world.
  12. My experience with hardware upgrades has been disappointing. For a long time I played SL using a computer with a 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo, 4 GB RAM, and an 8800 GTX graphics card, connecting vis 6 Mbps DSL. I often had a LOT of lag, and when I teleport to a new place, things were very slow to rez. During the past year, I got the following upgrades (in the order listed) with the effects as noted: 8 GB RAM - no discernable change GTX 470 - discernable, but not dramatic, improvement 3.0 GHz Core 2 Quad - no discernable change 18 Mbps connection - no discernable change Since, before the upgrades, my system was similar to yours, except for the graphics card, I saw improvement when upgrading from a graphics card that was better than yours is, and I saw no inprovement with the other upgrades, I would expect you to see improvement with a graphics card upgrade. However, I am not really knowledgeable about these things, so my opinion might not be worth much. UIt seems to me that most of the limitation that causes lag must be on the LL end, since upgrading most critical parts of my system made little difference.
  13. I tried to call billing support. I was on hold acouple of minutes, and then a computer voice told me the call was ending and I was cut off. then I tried chat support, and the agent had no idea what was wrong and suggested that I contact PayPal. Oh, well.
