  1. Blender School has a new round of “color variants in PBR” coming in early November, see Goonther Blackcinder’s profile for info on the group Discord. It’s a great group for Blender creators generally, with tons of support. The PBR process changed for the basics class between the first round and the second round, so it will probably change again by the next time the beginner class is offered. I had to throw out my class notes from Round 1, as the node setup was different in Blender. Hoping for an updated official wiki as we approach the official release.
  2. Thank you both, I got it working, but my workflow is going in a different direction. I’m currently taking a class and waiting for an updated method in the next section.
  3. Thank you! There's more than one way to skin this cat, and I needed to test.
  4. Bumping to ask about this ORM packing tool. I fumbled around trying to get it downloaded, I installed 7zip to open it, not sure of next step. I’m on Windows 10. Is there an installer?
  5. It was very easy signing up for a Star Mesh Body dev kit. The Blender School group run classes in Discord and inworld, and have YouTube videos covering basics, clothing creation, and using dev kits.
  6. Thank you for the clear explanation, it's most likely in nearby objects so I'll play around with it
  7. I'm missing a couple of no-copy objects, that I suspect I control-dragged into the wrong prim somewhere on my parcel. I've checked the most likely "targets" for these missing objects, but is there a script to search rezzed object inventories (by name)? There are a lot of objects on my parcel, not sure what the best solution for dumping this data would be. Otherwise, I'll start checking objects all around the target area by hand...
  8. I recognize a lot of names here, I follow Second Life topics and posters from @lelanicarver@universeodon.com - Twitter has become full of ads, and the news stories keep coming about crazy actions Musk is taking.
  9. Ah well, I guess I'll drop my decade-long grumbling about the web profiles not having an RSS feed and use the already-working Flickr link from Firestorm, which is easier to repost/reblog from anyway.
  10. Hmm, FeedlyPro apparently has a feed detector, but it deadends at the login page when I try to give it my direct link.
  11. I'm back inworld after a long absence, and hoping to connect with some of my old Twitter friends on Mastodon - you can find me as LelaniCarver@universeodon.com
  12. Yes, I walked down there just now, and people were visible, enjoying a fishing event. I had only cammed in before, that was it. Thanks all! Nothing, or something, to see here.
  13. Earlier today, I noticed a crowd of about 20 AVs down the road from my mainland parcel. I have noticed small conducted "tour groups" in my area and wondered if this was another group forming, or perhaps they were waiting for a Yavapod or other road-based airship tour. Curious, I took a look. Nope, they are completely invisible - no tags, no visible AVs, and they're not even visible in wireframe. So, I'm thinking it's bots, as there's a "vote" thing set up on the parcel. Ignore it, report it, or live with it?
  14. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 512m Water Lot Protected Sunrise $L5000~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Reduced price - there are several 512m water lots available in a row next to this one, you could have a nice stilt house or houseboat with plenty of decor.
  15. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 512m Water Lot Protected Sunrise $L8500 in Trollhaugen Trollhaugen 247, 197, 21 Water/Ocean lot in Trollhaugen, a beach/houseboat community with protected sunrise views. Moderate rating, 512m, 175 prims This area is just offshore from a peninsula in the Snowlands, so you can enjoy tropical breezes while you watch the neighbors on the horizon freeze! You will need a houseboat, beach cottage on stilts, several tons of virtual sand, or gills to live comfortably in this area. Water/Ocean lot in Trollhaugen, a beach/houseboat community with protected sunrise views. Moderate rating, 512m, 175 prims Thanks so much for your consideration, Lelani Carver
  16. Guessing it’s something done with a vector graphic, and either a displacement modifier or some Boolean voodoo? in any case, both are lovely.
  17. I'm no expert, but have been reading up on Blenderr a lot lately. What is your physics shape? Loki Eliot's "old" blog has some very interesting tips regarding LI and LOD that I'm going to try on a hat I've been working on that comes in at around 27LI. I know it's possible to get it lower than that based on some examples I've seen. You can do it! http://lokiboy.blogspot.com In short, he recommends linking to a plain old invisible prim for a physics object, and to set the lowest LOD level and the Physics level to 0. I'm going to try those later. I thought at first that you might want to show a simpler physics model like 3 trapezoids, but Loki's old (and new) blogs have some really helpful tips.
  18. The lower prim version is 145LI and available in finer premium Sandboxes everywhere... it comes with a recommendation for how to set the LOD display to 4.0
  19. Ah, so it's not just me then? It's not just slow, but the little search widget in the merchant home/marketplace listings section (for when you're searching for an item to update) is borked.
  20. Oof! I'm guilty of that " full-size, hidden root logo texture" one. Of course, it makes perfect sense when it's laid out like this; I had just done it because I'd seen it done in products I liked.
  21. Thank you for coming in to post this - I was reading the chat via an iPhone client and had no way to grab those links in the group chat earlier.
  22. Agreed, I linked an Amex card to PayPal back when LL wasnt accepting them; you have to wait for your street address to be verified. Also Virwox might give a slightly better rate of exchange.
  23. Great news, and not just for current merchants; I look forward to seeing new products from creators who've avoided listing on the Marketplace due to land issues or reluctance to mess with Magic Boxes. It'll remove one of the obstacles I've faced, and it'll motivate me to get new content listed for Direct Delivery. Looking forward to more information regarding existing boxes, though. I'd be in the "late adopter, procrastinator" column on converting from Magic Boxes if it turns out to be more than simply dragging items into the products folder. Guess I'd better try testing it on Aditi, as the early adopters have been doing.
