  1. And you should feel deprived. Linden Lab have removed this wonderful feature from the official viewer. It caused a problem for some, so, rather than fix it, they disabled it. They have no apparent plan to restore it. If your machine has the graphic capacity, you would have seen this magnificent beauty. Now, you cannot; Linden Lab's choice. Here is what you are missing: In 8 years, I cannot recall Linden Lab eliminating something so beautiful. First, they switched to having RenderAnimateTrees = FALSE by default, but to those who loved it, we quickly learned where the radio button was t
  2. The worst loss is that of bookmarks, since there's no way at all to recover those without scanning through the whole forum. I bookmarked things I was interested in, but to which I did not contribute anything but my interest, i.e., I did not post to the thread. I bookmarked things thinking I wouldn't have to write them down or remember anything other than that I had bookmarked something. If you read this, dear forum administrators, before next wiping out our bookmarks, please warn us for at least a couple of weeks.
  3. it's been two weeks since I've logged in to the forum and all my bookmarks and all my subscribed posts have disappeared. How do I prevent this happening? Is LL going to fix the forum so it doesn't happen? Is there life after death?
  4. Perfectly annoying! Try changing your group title. This problem has been occurring for a long time, sometimes suppressed and as now, in a severe outbreak. Changing group title forces the sim server to serve your avatar up all over again to everyone else in the sim and in nearby sims, which might work for you. I hope.
  5. I just discovered what I think is the biggest problem of all with the new profiles: they have altered something (database, data flags, ???) so that old inactive Calling Cards have become blank in Version 2 viewers. I've been around for a long time in SL--since 2004--and have many older Calling Cards which I can see in a Version 1 based viewer, but cannot see in a V2 based viewer. Basically, while it's not yet gone completely, as soon as V1 is made unusable, so will these cards be unusable, too. There will only remain the name in our CC foldesr to remind us of a person, but none of the not

  7. You can get either or both of two resolution levels of Chip's templates from this wiki page: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Clothing_Tutorials Remember, whichever of his (or anyone's templates) you use, Second Life makes the three avatar templates to be 512 x 512 files with alpha channels. Work at the higher resolutions to get a nice effect, then use your graphics software to reduce the image size to 512 x 512 as the copy of your original work that you'll upload to the system. The simplest way to view such things for free is to go to the beta servers--I forget their names--and log in there
  8. I hope you have Chip Midnight's templates, because they have much better guides on them to your problem. He has seam matching guides on his head, upper, and lower templates. In the case of the neck, the head's neck seam is N1, N2, N3, N4, and N5. It's going to be a struggle in some areas because of the elongation of the UV map in the neck. It will also be a struggle because if you cross the head to body seam, the resolution changes radically. You have more pixels on the head template at the neckline than you do on the body template.

  10. This happens periodically to almost all of us. If it's rezzing as a cloud and doesn't rezz after several minutes, you may need to clear your cache (done from Preferences>>Network in V1, Preferences>>Setup in V2). Also, CTRL-ALT-R will force your client to rebake the various clothing and skin layers--make them into the minimum number of textures and send them to the server to send back to you and everyone else's client--which clears this sometimes. Also, if this problem happens in a laggy sim, go to a sim that is not laggy, then relog. However, if you are not a cloud, it mea

Ok, I was hit one time myself, and readers of the Alphaville Herald might remember the report on this oh so terrible, painful, and shocking experience. But getting hit more than once could almost be called an artistic achievement. :smileyvery-happy: If you're really that shortsighted, here's good news for you: There's a draw distance BEYOND 4 meters! Oh, and those drivers who find it next to impossible to drive a car
  12. I didn't have as many symptoms as you, but my avie would be unable to stand on even the slightest slope, she'd slowly drift down to the bottom of whatever slight swale or dell that would stop her slip. I traced it to her boots, which are quite old in SL terms (as am I, in SL terms). They'd always been fine, but at some point the way in which it was calculated on what slope an avie could stably sit failed to account for the type of prims that made up my boots. I changed boots and the problem went away. Later viewers have not had the problem with these boots, so it was definitely viewer rela
  13. There are so many ways to sort, but one of the most important principles is that you should stay on top of it, don't allow your inventory to turn into a swamp, as one friend called hers. I sort in two ways, under the clothing folder: by category (_shoes, _accessories, _lingerie, _dresses, _kimono, _Jewelry, _tops, and _bottoms) and then for things that don't fit well in such categories, I creat folders by designer or store name. I use the _name format to make sure that the categories all sort alphabetically at the front of my Clothing folder. Also, with _shoes, for example, if there are a l
  14. I completely agree with all you've said, Mircea. i would like to add further criticisms of these web profiles. They are extraordinarily ugly. Consider how often a person might open a profile while the viewer is looking at a night scene with--usually--a dark UI skin. Then this awful white thing blares out in ones face. The web profile. Navigating around in it is truly tedious. To look at someone's "Picks", if there are more than 3 (or is it 4?), I have to move to another page when I click through on the "More..." link. 3 is totally insufficient. All should be there; or better, stop t
  15. Neat, Void! That would have helped a lot when I was trying to find which of the prims had been set to "light" within a 114 prim headress.
