  8. I really don't know scripting but I am thinking you also need to put the named animations and sounds into Contents of the sword as well. I see sound and animation names between the " " and that usually means you have to have the animations and/or sounds in Contents along with the script as the script searches for those to use. I have made vehicles where I have replaced the animation name between the " " in the script with the animation I wanted to use (I also put animation in the contents with the script) and it has worked just fine, so I assume this is the same case. Keep in mind the name between the " " has to be exactly the name of the animation you are using. Easiest way to make sure you got it right is to copy the animation name from Properties and paste into the script.
  9. Second Life adaptation of Eric Whitacre's Godzilla Eats Las Vegas Part I http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47ybl5JKPwU Part II http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1cp3AElIoE As part of the crew and cast this was incredible to make and everyone involved was fantastic!

Find out about BURN2 and Burning Man )*( )*( )*( )*( )*( )*( )*( )*( )*( )*( )*( So if you are ready to… get your camp plot ticket (yep, they are available NOW!), sign up to volunteer, sign up for the plot lottery, find out how to submit an art project or theme camp, or even gift the use of your sim for the BURN (wow, can you really loan a sim out?!), or just see people that you haven’t seen in a while, or if you just need some of that plain old BURNER LOVE.. You gotta come.
  12. Check this page out. While it is not a HUD these can be very effective. http://gridexpectations.wordpress.com/2009/07/03/subtle-facial-expressions/
  13. Also check to make sure somehow you didnt Lock them. (check in Edit) I have had plenty of DOH moments only to find I had locked a prim and until you unlock it you can't make it go away.
  14. Possibly this link will help with your mic problems. It is very helpful for configuring your firewall and router. I did it some time ago and it helped a lot and SL runs a lot smoother. http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Configuring_your_firewall_to_allow_access_to_Second_Life
  15. Try this thread - it has been discussed before. Which is the most comfortable animation package
  16. I do all my animations in Blender these days but same holds true... I never use frame 1. On Frame 2 I move all the parts to set them if I do not want the SL default animations to override those bits. Just move it a fraction and that does the trick. Another thing I do for animations is copy Frame 2 to the last frame of the animation and it runs a lot smoother through. If you are just doing a pose on one frame and don't want any of the default stuff to bleed through, you need to move everything a tiny bit for frame 2. I have done animations playing hand instruments such as a hand shaker that I allowed all the default animations to continue to play other than the hand and arm doing the shaking so the avatar shifts through the default stand positions as it plays, though usually I do my own shifting of the avatar since the default poses tend to be so icky.
  17. William Gibson's Neuromancer is a good one. Maybe not so much into the virtual world but making use of it as part of your body... check out Peter F. Hamilton's Pandora's Star or the followup to that Judas Unchained. First one took me a bit to get into but once it got going was a very good read. I understand these are only two books in his Commonwealth Universe series. I plan to look the rest up and give them a read. I really loved Tad Williams Otherland series. Again some bits were on the long side but once it got going, it got really good.
  18. Took it for a test drive several times since it came up, liked it when I first tried it like it even more now after couple of days and couple of posts. Definitely makes me want to use it more now. It took shorter time to figure out what was where than the former, but playing with the settings I found it was reasonably easy to get the hang of what you need to do. Good job!
  19. Ditto what Dora said. Troupe I perform with ( ~D R U M~ ) makes their own instruments and we looked for suitable animations but those who made the very few we thought were of the quality we wanted and suitable (only 2 sort of met our interest) refused to sell them to us so I decided to look into making our own and stumbled into this site http://tentacolor.com/sl-animation-for-blender-newbs/ It did take a while to learn what to do and I still learn every time I work with it, but we are producing custom animations to our instrument sets that get better and better. It is a learning curve but oh, so worth putting the time and effort in to get the results. Every time I work on a new set, I learn more and more. Eventually I will go back and redo my early work and I am always on the lookout for more information on using Blender animations and applying what I have learned. Performing with what I made and seeing the audiences enjoy what we are doing makes all the hard work worth it.
  20. I was on vacation and came back to find the forums were down so just kept busy with this and that in SL and RL until this came back.
  21. Still taking it for a test run but I like it!
  22. Uchi Cat has always been my favorite and, yes, saw the huge gorilla during one Burn - fabulous!
  23. Welcome Rod! I hope you enjoy your adventures as you find your way around our world. Make sure you see the various live musical offerings. There is some incredible talent and things to see out there from live singing to virtual instruments played live. Keep that childlike wonder at what you see and SL will continue to be a lot of fun.
  24. Welcome, Rod! Congratulations and welcome to the SL community!
  25. Best wishes, Jack. Thank you for all your efforts, safe journeys.
