  1. Yeah, at first my password didn't work. The wiki said to contact support if that happens, so I did, and they got me sorted. What do I do if I run out of L$ on the beta grid? Can I just contact support again and they'll give me more? Is it automatic?
  2. Look at the page; it specifically says Avastar is distributed under the GPL. Also, I was under the impression that the beta was just available to anyone who bought Avastar. If they're manually selecting people based on trust, I wasn't aware of that.
  3. And if you weren't so quick to ignore me and actually gave me a chance to respond, you'd see I linked this page, and quoted where it says it's GPL, meaning it would be legal—not piracy. How is this anyone else's business anyway?
  4. Yep, I know that. And I'm entitled all the same to give my opinion on those terms. (edit: actually, just noticed you already acknowledged that)
  5. And SL doesn't provide any way to export that data? If trial and error is the only way, is there any way to do it without wasting L$ on test uploads? Is there some way to preview a DAE on your avatar before you pay to upload it?
  6. I don't see how it can be considered "wrong" in a moral sense if you aren't using the exported model in a way that's harmful to the creator. That said, it's still against the ToS, so I don't recommend doing it. Still don't know why it has to be; they could easily have written the ToS to only prohibit harmful uses. But that's what LL decided. Not everyone with a legitimate use for the dev kit would necessarily own a store. Isn't that unfair to people who just want to make things and don't care about selling them?
  7. If I have an avatar whose joint positions have been modified by a rigged mesh attachment, what's the best way to create my own rigged mesh to go with that avatar, with those joint positions? I'm using Avastar, in case there's an easy way there. This is a mesh avatar I bought, and I don't have the source files for it. Is there a way to pull those modified joint positions from Second Life and import them into Blender/Avastar, similar to the XML export for appearance sliders? If not, how can I go about doing this without resorting to trial and error / wasting L$ on uploads that don't look as I want them to? I'm aware I can ask the creator for the source files, but I'm looking for a general solution.
  8. Five seconds seems like a perfectly acceptable delay if it's only when uploading an image.
  9. About Gmail, that's not how I remember it. I'm pretty sure Gmail started with a gigabyte or so, and had been rising for a while since then. Might still be; I don't know. And I don't remember them ever intentionally breaking Gmail Drive. In fact now they have their own official equivalent that works much better.
  10. I'm really fond of animation overriders where most of the animations have you floating above the ground instead of standing/walking normally. I've found many like that, but so far I've only been able to find one that has Bento: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/RP-018-Flying-Fairy-AO-Bento/5102172 There's nothing wrong with that one, but I'd like some more variety. Is that really the only such AO in all of Second Life that has Bento? Or does anyone know of any others?
  11. Checking for a collision is as easy as looking up a texture by its hash. What's their vested interest? Why is it LL's problem what people use their platform for? Are they legally responsible? I'm really sick of the government always acting like they're entitled to set rules for things they have nothing to do with, and I'd hope LL wouldn't willingly limit their own users' freedom simply to help them do that. Have they actually confirmed that that's why they don't allow third party exchanges? I know this is off topic for this thread, but I have pretty strong libertarian views in case you can't tell, and I just felt like ranting there, lol.
  12. Yeah I could see them doing that. 🙄 It would be nice if it was free even for free accounts. There's too much stuff in SL that requires money of some sort. And not everyone necessarily wants to associate a payment method with their account, or is even necessarily able to. For these people, even a L$1 fee can be a deal-breaker. I do have one associated (and in fact have a premium account) but the same isn't true of everyone. It would be nice if they accepted something not tied to a real-world identity, like Bitcoin—it would be very much in the spirit of SL, I think. There used to be third party exchanges that did, but then they banned third party exchanges for some reason... Still though, any requirement to involve money can still be a problem for some people, even if they can do it in a completely anonymous, freedom-preserving way.
  13. If an uploaded image is identical to an image someone else uploaded, why do they need to store another copy? Couldn't it just add a copy of the existing texture to your inventory?
