  1. Sugar Daddy Chef.pngNever fear Sonja!  I'm baking you a fantastic Sugar Daddy from scratch (although it's probably much easier to simply buy them like Mr Nightfire... Brilliant move Drake).

    If I can reach this strainer here I'll be able to drain off most of the Jack-***ery typically associated with those fellows and you should really enjoy your Daddy then (I'll take care not to wash away the sugary sweetness).

    Please forgive me if I sneak a taste of your treat... They're certainly not my favorite, but occasionally they can be oh soooo mmm mmm good.... but don't tell anyone I shared that with you.

    Enjoy Yourself and your tasty treat!


  2. Sleepy TimeDid someone say 'Silly Pic'?

    Haven't been caught with my thumb in my mouth for a few years, but I still do fold up all funny some nights making for some awkward awakenings... My Avi isn't quite as self conscious so I'm sure this picture won't embarrass her.

    Enjoy yourselves!

    Lanas :smileywink:

  3. Lift_001.pngPlace your feet shoulder width apart, bend at the knees, keep your back straight, then PUSH with all your might!!!

    (try not to look too constipated)

    You may need a few friends to help if the builds are large, heavy, or shaped oddly.  I'll be glad to pitch in and help lift if you think it would help.

    Seriously, good luck and I hope you get some actually useful advice for your frustrating problem.

    Enjoy the struggle for solutions!



  4. Pick Me.pngЗаберите меня товарищ! Выбери меня!

    Dante, I just had to pull my Snow Maiden outfit out of the closet for this one... and I can only hope the translation is somewhere close to what I'd humorously meant.

    I wish you the best of luck with your search for a wonderful playful woman.

    Enjoy Yourself! :smileywink:


  5. Qavimator and I have had a wonderful relationship and it has treated me well over the years.  I'm not familiar with anything else so I can't compare, but I can assure you that if you "don't want to become a pro or spend a lot of money" Qavimator could do the trick quite nicely.

    I'll be honest, figuring it out was not easy to begin with but that's mostly because of several silly gotchas that once I finally trudged through the tutorials everything became clear and workable.

    Never fear... Qavimator is here...

    Enjoy your attempts at satisfying animation!  ;)


  6. So masturbation also qualifies as cheating?

    @Everyone--   Oh ohhh... I so tried to control myself and not jump on this, especially since Dana already covered it satisfactorily... but I'll throw in another vote for "Good and beneficial" whether all on your lonely or with your special friend... I'll simply stop there, but I soooo wish I had the gumption to add a Picture Pose to this post!  I'd probably end up with the AR that Dana is worried about if I 'pictured' this though... ohhhh ohhhh it hurts.

    @Syo--  I so agree with all the points you're making, my simple "Yes" was answering Dylon's first simple question, beyond that things got complicated... annnyywhoooo... I'm lazy when it comes to debating so I often just fall into 'simple' and leave the deep thoughts to the Dylons of the world.  If I'm lucky I can just let brilliant and clever folks like Ms Tamara make good points and then I can stick to pictures (  HEEELllllllooooo Tamara :)  ) 

    @Jacki--  "Enjoy the Ride" made me snicker, and of course, it's like duh... how many distracting doodads must one pay attention too before they realize there's a wonderful wave to jump into that they likely just missed because they were looking at 'crosshairs'?  Another great thread might be "Is looking at crosshairs in SL while you're pixel poking the same as texting in RL while you're shagging?" :o

    (I've been at this SL monkeybusiness for a while and I actually have no idea what/where those 'crosshairs' are... sorry sorry, please don't anyone derail this thread trying to tell me how to turn them on... but it sounds voyeuristic enough perhaps a quickie IM with the tricks... he ehhe ohhhhh)

    The true fun for me is making the pictures... and this was fun... time to get back to enjoying myself (all by myself until later tonight... and no it's not cheating... Practice makes Perfect)



  7. Trouble.png

    Send your physicist friends my way... I've had no trouble finding them, I simply can't seem to keep them from slipping through my fingers.  I'll be glad to share them because I agree they would make beautiful presents, but you can see my problem.  Perhaps a ginormous net... think Lanas... think!

    Enjoy your Holidays and this Season of Giving ;)


  8. Nobody Here.png

    I've been looking for all the little people but there aren't any down here.  I'll ask them how it's going as soon as I find them...

    (Sorry everyone... I was looking for a Picture Pose theme and this was too easy.  I'm done with my turn on night shifts and finished with my SL 'work' that buried me the last few weeks so I'm free to play.  Hopefully there will be plenty of inspiration this week)

    Enjoy getting to know all the little ones running out and about! ;)


  9. Happy RezDay.pngA very Happy RezDay to you!

    I finally escaped my turn on night shifts so I can focus on some Picture Pose fun again and this was a wonderful way to settle back in.

    Enjoy the next 3! ;)


  10. Vanpanimous.pngI believe Vampires are extremely magnanimous which means you have a fantastic chance of building a beautiful relationship with 1, 3, or 5 of them at a time!...

    No wait, magnomonomous means even numbers, but only when referring to Werewolves, so I think I'm still right about your Vampire chances... no no, I'm sorry you must have meant polygamonopotomous, right?...

    Good grief, but you don't live in Utah... actually since you were worried about "spiritual and emotional bonding" you must have meant monotheisomy, in which case I'd have to say good luck in these decadent days...

    You know me though, I'm and eternal optimist and I'm so hoping you find your Five Vanpanimous Friends and have all sorts of fun!

    Enjoy your voracious vocabulary verbiage ;)



  11. Crossleg.pngI've always been frustrated by poseballs as well which is one of the reasons I learned everything I could about animations.  For most of the projects I help with and everything that I make for my personal shop I simply use HUDs or scripts like Ceera was hinting at.

    For furniture and such there are fantastic scripts that let someone just sit on the couch or whatever and then menus let them pick positions.  For AO's and ground sits I just make the anims and let people pick from a HUD menu, no poseballs necessary.  The trick with that is that you have to be careful making the animation because there's no poseball to adjust the position... tall people may float above the ground, while short people may sink into it.  Poseballs help sort that drama out.

    Ceera was also right that if you're trying to bring two (or more... but shame on you) people together then poseballs are the easiest to position them with, although the scripts I use for furniture can do the same thing with a few more clicks.

    To really be helpful we'd need to know what you're interested in.  Sitting?  Picture posing?  Kissing?  etc etc.  Simply filling your AO with what you're interested in and using the 'sit anywhere' may be all you need, can't really guess. 

    You can just poke me with a PM to get down into the details if you're trying something in particular... if you just want to whine about silly looking poseballs then I'm right there with you and I'll be glad to whimper and wail together.

    Enjoy your learning in the forums ;)


  12. Been on a loooong work trip with no time for fun Picture Poses, but fortunately I had this picture taken for a postcard sitting around just waiting for this thread.

    We're a couple of Friends in France... if I remember right we were hit by a bus shortly after this was snapped... don't pose in the street for photos if you have plenty of other fantastic options... I'm sure I was saying we should be over at the cafe, but nooooo, then you wouldn't see the flags... blah blah blah... heh hee... the memories.

    Enjoy your friends and travels! ;)

  13. Wildcat Rustling.pngSo Ms Furse, as I was starting to wonder where you’d roamed off to I had a hunkerin’ that you might well have settled in where you’ve always seemed out rightly far too comfortable…

    …and golly gee darn who’d have guessed, seems as if you ain’t done never left this here VaNiTy ThReAd!

    What you gots to set your mind to understandin’ is it’s gonna to be gettin’ dark way out yonder here just about forthright, so you oughts to be draggin’ your bottom back to this here civilization promptly young lady!

    Do not make me rustle up my rough housin’ posse as I cannot be certain that they wouldn’t overly enjoy the task of hogtiein’ your curvaceousness up right tight… let’s just not get there now ya hear?



    Ohhh.. ah aahhh… sorry, I got a rather thick does of Texas Time last night with the neighbors and it rubbed off when I finally peeked back at this thread only to see it thriving, and you along with it.

    Enjoy all the wonderful VaNiTy ;)


  14. Danger danger, just be careful with any new investment in video cards if you're buying a new computer or trying to improve the one you have!  I don't know enough of the details but here's a link to a recent post where it seems some of the best equipment out there isn't behaving nicely with Second Life so beeeeee careful!


    I've attached a link to my post from a while back where we'd gotten a marvelous new computer that wasn't too ridiculously priced (HP close out sale) and it made SL smooth as glass for me and I didn't have to do anything other than put on Phoenix and turn up the Look Amazing Dial.  I think I put everything up to the tops except the 'view distance' but I'm not on now to check.


    Enjoy your quest for SL marvelousness!



  15. WhoSorry about your seriously sad situation, however you're sure to find a few sympathizers and plenty of advice here...

    ...Living and dealing with Storm can be a challenge for anyone, and you shouldn't let it kill you... there is support in the forums for folks like yourself... we understand the toxic relationship issues...


    Ok, sorry Storm, you started it... I certainly feel for Ms Seaside and her actual situation.  Being there for folks in need is one thing, but dealing with substance abuse of any sort is something that often takes far more than a friend or even a village. 

    It's also important to keep yourself sane and functioning... just like in the airplanes, always remember to put your oxygen mask on first then help the impaired, small children, or unconscious characters around you.

    Enjoy and sustain your sanity! ;)



  16. XMas.pngTamara, you are such the completely early Santa's Little Helper!

    You're clearly earning fantastic Nice Karma Points for the holidays...

    ...Hopefully it'll be enough to balance the wonderfully Naughty Points you've accumulated with your fisky tingly fun fotos ;)


    Burciaq, you're a very lucky fellow!

    Enjoy what will undoubtedly be the best portrait you'll receive for the holidays!



  17. Kini Hunt.png@Willow - Right right... focus... focus... back on duty... I'm sooooo close... they're quick though, really quick... I may not be frightening enough, and my weird bird flew off last night... but I'm determined, and Perseverance is my middle name (not really, but you know what I mean ;) )

    @Neal - I snuck into the changing room and slipped into a 'Kini for you, but as you can see I promised Willow a good effort at finding her 'catch' so it's not all beach fun and games for me today.

    Quick question for you, are you speedy on your feet?  Faster or slower than your friends?  No particular reason for the questions... just wondering...

    Enjoy all of the searches and goings on!


  18. Be My FWB.pngCaught by surprise on this theme but tried to give it my best Photo Pose shot... not enough time to dig through the closet for a "really hot" outfit so I settled in on the 'Frisky Secretary' or 'Repressed Librarian' look in a awkward Pin Up Girl pose (ok, I was lazy, but it looked fun if not quite hot... ohhh, and I forgot the glasses... good grief). 

    I was trying to think how to 'type sounds' but then I remembered whenever I try to wave I end up pushing the wrong F button and I bark or clap (sorry Neal, I suspect barks weren't what you had in mind, but it's a start). 

    I did manage to sneak in stomping out the virtual cigarette, hopefully before being seen.

    Enough apologizing and excuses, I had fun with the pose and hopefully Neal's FWB thing works out (whether he was just being funny or not :) )

    Enjoy your Friends and whatever Benefits they may bring!


  19. I was really hoping Hitomi was going to come back and share where those tricks are hiding a little more specifically... did you ever figure it out to your satisfaction?  If not I'll get serious and try to figure it out... would be worth knowing.


  20. I'll keep my eyes out to see if you get the news you're looking for, but I've been at this a while and have made AOs with and without freely moving heads and I suspect you can't fix it yourself.  That head movement either has to be put in a position by the animator or allowed to run free as in your case, but once that decision is made it's stuck unless you upload a new animation.

    I actaully prefer the natural free movement typically, however I go halfway usually by leaving the head free while tipping the neck to one side or the other between anims.  That way you get the free natural look without the wild swings that might be bothering you.  I'm just guessing on that, but if the swings allow you to look nearly over your shoulders then the animator left both the head and the neck free.

    We'll see if you get another answer... but that's my two cents.

    Fingers Crossed

  21. Oh ohhhh... I found another way to shake the eyes free that hasn't failed me yet!  Ran across it by accident working on some anims and photos the other day, but its worked three times in a row now consistently.

    Just put on an Emoter HUD (freebie ones work great) and play a smile or any expression and whaaalaaaa my eyes moved natural again.  You may even just be able to play the expression with the viewer, I haven't tried that since I just use a HUD to make expression combinations for pictures, but I wanted to share the tips, works great so far.

    Enjoy your freed up eyes ;)
