  1. While it isn't possible, one could wear a large prim box over them so the only thing they see is a box....
  2. The problem lies in the fact that SL is not RL and why the hell should anyone care about "height" anyways! all that matters is retaliative scale!
  3. Everybody does photography in SL it seems and a ton of super talented people. You can charge what people are willing to pay! If you offer somthing super nice, or unique or awesome or whatever.... but to make money on a consistiant level with SL photography a specialty field could be really helpful, like Wedding, Maternity, Family, etc.. One thing is don't under sell your self ... SL is full of cheapstakes and tightwads, but if you offer good high quality work and you know it - set your price and don't let people convince you to basically work for free
  4. how many "confederates' are left? seems there are those that want to erase every memory of that from history, so then why not erase the word "democratic Party' from history? times changes and people and ideas change. how are monuments to confederate generals harmful to anyone alive today? they represent a snapshot in time. not a pleasant moment in time, but it is a part of America and its past. if we insist to purge every reminder of past wrongs done by America or Americans, then we need to purge everything, not a selective set of things
  5. there is a thread in Machinima forum about this viewer I thought Id post here, I been running it through its paces last few days, I'd like to know for given the same settings how it is performing so much better than Firestorm in terms of scene loading and FPS gains. I have observed the LOD is rather low by default - you see some mesh items deform rather quickly when the camera is pulled back some and FS has a checkbox in Phototools to disable Dynamic Draw which in this viewer is on by default and only able to turn off via debug settings but overall I have been seeing FPS rates at least 2-5x that of Firestorm. The UI is more a fancy linden viewer not really impressed with that, but I do wonder how it is able to perform so well
  6. What Ive noticed is by default Alchmey uses very low LOD values for mesh and very low LOD on distance drawing
  7. the main question I have is what is this White privilege and where can I get some? does it pay your bills for you? put free food on the table? pay rent? inquiring minds want to know!
  8. There are still some issue with cops - a small minority of them. Most are good. But I wonder if the thought has ever occurred maybe just stop resisting arrest? even if is a BS stop, a profiling stop, or what ever, maybe let the attorney and courts settle it ......until we can fix (or remove) the bad cops this might help in the mean time....
  9. I recently have noticed FS is writing to disk like it is penning a novel. 30-50% sometimes even 100% write. (observed in the task manager) the system resource monitor just says 'system' I have checked while on black dragon, and it remains between 0-1% disk activity Anybody know what FS is doing? I don't recall this type of disk activity before but maybe just never payed attention. Even when recording video in SL I don't see this amount of disk write activity.
  10. ok some my first impressions (related to observed performance not anything to do with the UI) I went to area in Grove Estate I know likes to chug alot. I set the FS and Alc. viewer to the same WL and same draw distance, same display settings First of, observing the windows task manager, the usage of the CPU / GPU is really no different than of FS Firestorm: after intial load I'm getting anywhere from 6-11 FPS and if I let the scene 'bake in' longer up to 20 FPS or so. FS has for me for a while now, chugged and very low FPS on some sims until it gets more processed. It's loaded, no grey, just takes a while for the FPS to build up. Alcehmy: The loading was very fast and I was instantly getting rates from between 40-90 FPS (I walked back and forth along a path in both viewers) there was no observed 'bake in' period where I had to wait for the FPS to pick up. From my observation on this particular sim in this particular area, I would say it was anywhere from 2-5 times better in FPS, and in addition, when walking, no choppiness I plan on doing more testing and with the 3D mouse I use for machinima work and on different sims to do more comparing. So far I have to say, it performs really well. Now, I can't say something in my Win 10 just doesn't like a certain file or process within FS, but from my early observation, alchemy works quite well my computer: core i7 4790 16g RAM GTX 1080 Win 10 build 19041
  11. Ill give it a try, but what is with all this 'perceived' difference? using the task manager one can see EXACTLY what the CPU/GPU is and is not doing......
  12. first issue you have is are you SURE they are "ladies' just cause you see a sexy female avatar?
  13. wading into a pool of scolding hot water here - I would have to say probably 90% of those "protesting" don't give a squat about 'BLM' or rights or racism or whatever. this is just a free for all, burn what we want steal what we can party The REAL problem is an has been the 'bad apples' always present in police ranks, and this is made possible by the the whole "Blue Line" bs cops use to 'protect' one another. In this last case, you cannot tell me other cops never saw or noticed a pattern by this cop in the past using excessive force on suspects, and yet they remained silent cause that's 'what cops do' If these 95% of all good cops want to really help put an end to all this crapola now and in the future, end this 'Blue Wall' bs once and forever. A bad cop is a bad cop and has no place wearing a badge
