  1. Sci-Fi and cyberpunk RP has been always rare and hard to find on SL ... while there has always been a ton of various urban or supernatural sims available. So finding anything good in this setting was almost impossible. Sometimes however new RPs start and the latest is 'Era of Salvation'. Finally a Sci-Fi/Cyberpunk RP that does not include anything out of fantasy or supernatural elements (*dances in joy*). It opens on the 28th and I hope it will turn out nice and fun. I think they have a place at the convention too, but I would need to look. I did not had a chance to visit the convention yet.
  2. *goes into a corner to cry about the state of sci-fi/ cyberpunk RP in SL* sadly I hoped to find this for years and have not had any success ... it is all supernatural-urban those days and real cyberpunk is nowhere to be found. Even more so if one of the requirements is that no meter is being used. However, I would love any suggestions myself since many RP sims does not manage to become known wide enough and close down because those who would love to play there never become aware of the sims existence.
  3. A full RP sim ... speaking of former admin experience, that is much (MUCH) more work and more headache invovled then most who want to start such places realize .. it is also lots of fun. So the best tip is to start small and develop from there. So you will see if your ideas and your setting is actually one that works in RP before you invest into a sim. And you might meet the people who will stick with you and help to build it up.

    It all looks very Star Trek ToS like. Not really my setting but the ship at least is a very nice build indeed and since I always look for some Sci-Fi oriented RP I might drop by. However a crew would need to be active together and since people on SL come from all over the world it might be good to state the timezone this ship RP would be expected to happen.
  5. Firestorm for me as well. I started using it when it was in beta and quickly moved to it from Phoenix and stayed with it. I enjoy the features, the support in the group and the UI as well .. much better then the old v.1 UI in my opinion and I used viewers with that one for a long time too.
  6. While I am sure that some people claim to be SL celebrities the real answer is that there are none (those who make the very common mistake of assuming that their little part of SL is all of it might however beleive they are this .. but that is just funny :matte-motes-wink-tongue: ). At least not all over SL since certain communities have people that are more known then others. But with the way communities on SL are divided and rarely merge those people are totally unknown to anyone outside of their small circle. There might be some blogers or maybe some content creators and third party viewer developers who are known to a bigger audience but no real celebrities.
  7. Just as with several posters above for me it is all non-meter free form RP. I have watched a meter fight once long ago in the days of me starting RPing in SL and that was enough to make me decide that this is nothing I ever want to do (and there ar other reasons related to IC character skills and dynamics but that is not the place to discuss those). Today I don't even visit sims where the description says they use one meter or another. As for the setting then I just love science fiction and cyberpunk. The future is what I like to immerse myself into most even when SL offers a strange lack on this sort of RP enviroments. Fantasy can be nice too, but I never really managed to play in any fantasy sim for longer then a few weeks as I have trouble to actually develop a real feel fo a character there. Dark urban/post apoc sims offer a setting I like to play in as well, but they lately seem to all be only about supernatural and magic. And that is not that appealing to me either.
  8. You don't need to loose a shirt to make the inventory link get broken. Renameing it will cause to break the link as well as will editing it (on prim parts). Sometimes at least .. and of course copying the item and then wearing the copy while the link points to the original that you might have deleted or renamed. But broken links are no problem to fix. Just open the inventory and find the shirt and then either drag-drop it into the outfit folder (in the inventory window, and not in the the outfit window). In this case, the item will automatically create a link in the outfit folder or 'copy-paste as link' the item into the outfit folder. I create and play with outfits all the time and do this a lot when updating and changing older outfits.
  9. Imprudence is old and even when they would start to work on it again, it woudl take many months to get it back on track with all the changes that viewers have been through. So I would forgett this one for now. When people have problems however with their computers being unable to run a viewer like Firestorm (that I use myself and consider to be a 'heavy' viewer since it does need ressources and processing ower to run smoothly) I point them towards Cool Viewer as this one behaves much better on weaker machines. I used it on a laptop and while it wasn't anything great, it still worked fine (I had ot reduce grafics significantly but that was my laptops fault). If you have been using v.1-like viewers so far, then Cool has the added benefit (if oyu see it as a benefit of course as I for example like the v.3-look a lot) of looking like one and still having all the improvments of the later viewers including mesh (it was the first v.1-like viewer to have mesh compatibility). But there are many viewers to choose from so you can always do some testing to see what viewer will your laptop like best.
  10. This sounds interesting ... I would very much like to see this happening but it might have to be spiced up with some dramatic happenings now and then because most political work is all about writign up and reading documents and pushing them around various desks :matte-motes-wink-tongue: To be honest I would even think then the government building of some fantasy country might work better then making it based on a existing one (Even when the existing one would make it easier to relate to it .. at least for people form the US as the white hose is clsoer to them then to people from other countries). But it still should be fun
  11. Oh yes, Insilico is nice and a great location for RP. Hangars Liquides looks even better in my opinion, but both lack from various problems ... one being that they don't have enough people to play there and lack RP organisation through groups, factions and GMs to push the play ... and with Hangars Liquides, the sim not having been build with RP in mind.

  13. Yes .. doomed does not really fit the topic but from all the changes I have seen made to it, it looks like those running it are trying very much to get away from the sex sim topic. When I was there last time, they scaled the land back to 'mature' and stated in the notecard that people looking for sci-fi sex and tentacles should go to necronom instead. The newly rebuild parts of the ship also seem to lack the hidden poseballs and just as the tentacles, I have only found them in the parts of the ship that are now a few years old. All good (when slow moving) changes I appreciate a lot (and hope I am right with this and that it will be succesful) but the sim is still very much everything-goes and best suited for personal scens with a few freinds or a secondery RP location And should you find a sim as described in your question then please tell! I am looking for years now :matte-motes-crying:
  14. Yes ..... all the time -.- Yes too! Once a few years back, I repeated the entire stream of animations on my old AO for fun and actually managed to do it nearly perfectly. But it wouldn't really work with my current AO since it has way too many poses in it and plays them randomly too.
  15. Nice.. me and my freinds use to call this kind of playing 'Black Box RP' after the first time we did it in a empty black box and build the entire world in the emotes and descriptions. And now Black-Box-RP stands for all scenes played like this with no or only limted builds. With the right people it is really awsome to play like this ... so have fun playing I might be a bit too busy right now for more RP
