  1. Hi all! Im wanting to get into using mesh for my clothing in second life. Im used to using zbrush for sculpted prims ect, but have yet to dabble in mesh. I assume that there must be a location that users can download the human shape for second life to upload into a 3D program in order to creature these items? Id appreciate it if someone could link me to a place I can get the second life avatar model to work with. Thanks in advance!:matte-motes-nerdy:
  2. Hello all, I am promotong and spreading the word about my new role play sim called "Lost Tides" It was created with mer folk in mind but all fantasy races are welcome so long as they abide the rules. I have made many posts about it in all the places I can think of, and the community SL forum being about the last I can think of. Rather then ramble on, I will simply provide links to more infrmation and pictures! My blog: Lost Tides Blog announcment Recruting information for the village SLURL to Lost Tides (all info and rules can be easily found at welcome center) Lost Tides Flickr Account Hope to see some people there and joining! If you have any questions please forward them to Alanna Parkin ( Tea'dray)
  3. Thanks all, I will look into your suggestions hibit Spad - there was an automatic .obj to sculpt converter, that did convert the obj to a bmp, I was using it for a long time, but it only worked for windows, thus why I am searching for something new, but if I need to use it through a program I will, whatever it takes to get me some BMP's.
  4. Hello all :) I recently got an iMac computer and I am in need of a program that can convert obj files into bmp's for sculpts so that I can upload them to second life, but of course needs to be a program that can work for a mac, does anyone have some links/recomendations to some good converters? Thanks in advance :)
  5. Hi all, I am looking to find out what are somegood real-estate agents here in Second Life that deal in selling full sims and homstead? I currently am renting from Corest Estates who I have been rather distasified with a long time. Im thinking of trying to get a full sized sim now for reasonable teir rates. But I want a company that has been around a while, all who speak good english, has good customer service. Does not change their central home base constantly and has payment terminals that keep working. A company honest friendly and reliable. Though maybe its better just to buy from Linden Labs, just 1000 USD to buy is a bit steep O.o If any of you can hook me up with some good ones id really appreciate it, give me names or websites so I can start my research. :)
  6. Just wanted to also shout out that I tried what was recomended by Luc and it seems to have helped the issue! Yay, cuz Imprudence doesnt let me make outfit folders! >.<
  7. I try and use the defult viewer as I want to be up to speed with all the lastest features. I think as a designer for SL that is important. It took me a while to get use to the new interface, but now that I am I feel like I have to relearn where everything is on Imprudance lol. I havnt had that many issues with the offical SL viewer, none enough that make me come posting asking questions on the froums. Ill go back to the offical viewer once that lag bug is fixed. Plus I feel like my personal info is more secure on the offical then a third party viewer.
  8. Thanks for the reply. I actually downloaded Imprudence to try and combat the lag untill the issue is fixed, and I find Impreudence runs amazingly! I guess that proves its client side. It seems as though since the update, second life is using more memory resources then it use to? I have no idea what more its trying to process? anyway, id recomend using imprudence for now.
  9. Im having a real pain in the butt issue. Since the evening of July 26th I started to experiance horrendous lag in it seemed like ANY region I went to. It was random, I thought maybe it was grid side, as I have a bran new Mac that runs beautifully, and never had this issue. Walking is slow, textures are slow, things take forever to reload that should have been stored in my cache. My computer should be able to run max settings no problem, but even when I turn my settings lower I still have bad lag. Im asking here becasue its my experiance that submitting tickets does nothing... though I have submitted one about this problem anyway... I was hoping to get some faster responses on the forum encase I can do something about it? Anyway when I check the leg meter the client keeps switching from green normal to yellow to red at random and thats just standing still O.o Anyway here are my specs..

  10. Thanks for the feedback Bell, but I think you missunderstood me. Objects and landscape on my screen loads fine, even my own avatar, But I often see OTHER people as all gray. Any prims they wear loads, but their body remains gray. If I ask them to rebake or edit apperance, it loads the texture... what I want is to find a way this doesnt happen and so that people ALL load normally. This ia a recent issue over the past month id say... Nobody has ever told me I am not loaded properly. They see me fine.
  11. I'v been having this reoccuring problem where some avatars wont load the skin or clothing textures, so they are just left a gray human shape. I have to keep asking people to please rebake their textures, and that generally fixes the problem. But Its getting tiresome, and would like the viewer to just work as it should. Does anyone know the cause of this? and what I might be able to do to fix it? Everything else loads fine, landscape, prim textures, sculpted prims. It just seems to be randomly other peoples avatars. Thank you in advance :) P.S - I have tried to look up the issue without much luck. I am using the offical Second Life viewer and now get the automatic updates.
