  1. My avatar is an African-American, and I am a white male in real life. I use Second Life on a daily basis.
  2. I know of someone who has been having the same kind of problem as of lately. She was not only unable to walk when logged on, but after a few seconds it automatically logged her off. What is going on? Is it possible she has an outfit she is wearing that was causing problems?
  3. My question is, do the feet have toes? I certainly hope they don't have bunions. This sounds like an interesting mesh body. I am also wondering if I can actually make the mesh body half invisible?
  4. Does anybody know if there are any Bento bare feet that allow wiggling of toes, and if so, where could I find an inexpensive set?
  5. I think, with the latest wave of spambots invading SL, I think it's time for the folks at Linden Labs to consider implementing a one-time fee for any new avatar. Already existing members would not be subject to such fees. What do you think of this idea? Either way, I hope something is done about this spambot problem once and for all. If it goes on forever, I am afraid of what may end up happening to SL someday. If spambots get banned, they will come back. Repeatedly. I hope there is something that can be done about this problem once and for all.
  6. Are the spambots the main reason why the folks at Linden Labs are undergoing unscheduled login maintenance as I post this?
  7. I am using Version 2.76 of Blender, and when I am doing the Prepare the Avatar phase, when I am prompted to press F9, nothing is happening. What do I do?
  8. Is it possible to upload mesh.objects (.dae's) to SL with textures already applied, or do textures and mesh objects have to be uploaded separately?
  9. I am learning how to create polygon hair for my Second Life avatar, but I am having trouble with a certain task. If you scroll to about 0:18 in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAsslleGjJY I would like to ask, how do I do that part with the cylinders? I tried it, and it brought all the sides inward to resemble a cone when it should be like in that part of the video. When I tried the task, I did have my cylinder straight and centered vertically. I did tilt the cylinder previously, but when I used the border select tool, it selected parts I don't want to use. What should I do (keyboard shortcuts and/or what path would I have to take) in order to make the cylinder as is shown at about 0;18 in the video?
  10. I am trying to create a script that will allow me to walk on the surface of Linden water. I got a couple of questions: 1. The position that I stand, is that the X, Y or Z position? 2. How would I have to start the script? Like, say, if I were to wear the object on my feet and activate it right away, but if I were to set the standing position (X, Y or Z) to only allow my feet to not go below a certain position, what would I do?
  11. I remember learning one time that a mesh shirt and maybe skirt can be created using Edit Mode on an imported Second Life avatar. Could somebody please post a link to a tutorial on how to create a mesh shirt in Second Life? Also, I did learn that the imported Second Life avatar comes with a skirt too. Can the skirt be made shorter, stretched, and maybe reshaped or warped in Blender?
  12. Since the Second Life avatar is imported with a skirt as well, is there any way I could create a rigged mesh skirt from the Second Life avatar imported into Blender?
  13. Well, maybe Hair Lab is not compatible with Second Life. So much for that idea. But I did read about the idea of creating polygon hair, and I think that may seem more promising. Or I could use bezier curves and make the strands bigger and modify and shape them. And when finished segments of the hair, add a hair texture. Any non-video tutorials on how to create polygon hair or hair using bezier curves? Video tutorials are hard for me to understand, as sometimes they are so fast, and I think tutorials in text format on a website would be more understandable for me. I intend to learn to create mesh items, and I do admit, it's hard at first (and I had just gotten started), but I think after several weeks, I should get the hang of it. Plus I am in no rush to get the task completed.
  14. It does seem to make sense that not only having Sesame Street characters in SL violates the terms of conditions associated with Sesame Workshop, the intellectual property owners, but also a sim that copies Sesame Street. I remember there used to be a sim that replicated Bedrock, the fictional hometown of the Flintstones. Needless to say, that's gone. I have seen avatars that are dressed like Cookie Monster, Elmo, etc. over the years I have been in Second Life. Did they get banned from Second Life? And the word "retarded" should never be used to describe Sesame Street characters. People use that word towards people or characters because they just hate them so much, they don't want to see them again. If you want to use the "R" word to describe characters, I think The Little Rascals may fit the description. I wonder if Sesame Workshop owns a sim in SL?
  15. Are there any tutorials on how to create hairs on a 3D avatar's head in Blender using the Hair Lab add-on? If this is in the wrong forum, please move it to the rightful one.
  16. Sounds like a very big problem going on today, and no end in sight. I may as well go to DigiWorldz this evening.
  17. Linden Labs reports that the maintenance is completed, so all should be well now (we hope).
  18. Well, while it will suck that I may not be able to log in this evening, at least that will give me more opportunity for me to learn to create mesh clothing in Blender. I have started to sculpt a mesh hair, and I seem to be on the right track so far..Blender is easier to use than I realized. Hopefully these inventory issues are fixed before I head to bed this evening. The issues were identified at 11:05 AM PT, at it's virtually 1:00 PM PT as I post this. Sounds like the problem is bigger than expected.
  19. UPDATE: My RL roommate is having trouble with his SmartPhone as of lately. I was talking to him on the phone today, and he was having problems with his SmartPhone just now. I think it's most likely the case that a massive number of people are on the Internet this holiday season, since students are off from school and people are taking time off work, thus causing Internet traffic to rise dramatically. It may not be the battery after all. And like I said before, the problem was not prevalent on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and maybe Thursday due to Internet users being at work. The coming week or two, however, could be a different story. Who knows? These issues may have been occuring since November 26 (U.S. Thanksgiving Day), though in the early stages at that time.
  20. Apparently, I did speak to my RL roommate, and I did learn from him that he is having the same issues on his Samsung Phone and/or his own computer. He did suggest that it might have been due to a congested modem, so he suggested for me to turn off the power bar for 30 seconds to one minute, and then turn it back on. After I turned my computer back on, there doesn't seem to be any choppy audio on Second Life - at least for now. I did, however, notice that the choppy audio on SL on my side, has been prevalent since my Internet status doesn't show any outside WiFi connections, just a LAN connection, nothing more. Is there any way to regain WiFi signals from other surrounding areas? I currently have limited access, through a LAN connection. EDIT: Choppy audio is returning now. Sounds like I need both LAN and Wireless signals in order for SL to run smoothly.
  21. I did purchase my computer in June 2011, so that makes it 4 1/2 years now. You may be right, it could be the battery inside my tower. I am going to have to buy a new one pretty soon, though the only problem is, neither Walmart nor Best Buy in my hometown carries such batteries. I may have to search on eBay.
  22. I have been having problems with my computer clock last weekend and now this weekend. This problem wasn't prevalent on Sunday through Wednesday or Thursday in the last week. Could higher than normal traffic in SL be the cause for the lack of synching of my computer clock when on SL? Or a virus? Or what could be the reason?
  23. I apparently used PayPal to deposit funds into VirWox, but then I realized I had not activated my avatar name to VorWox as yet. I did activate my account to VirWox, but the funds are not there. I am not sure if there is a hold on funds being added to VirWox, if I have to wait so many business days, but my funds are not showing in my VirWox balance as of this moment. Could somebody please explain this?
  24. I tried to log in to SL using Firestorm's latest update, but I was successfully loggd on for a few seconds, then my computer crashed. The issue most likely is what I suspected - a graphics card issue. It looks like I'm bringing my computer to the shop tomorow to be fixed - whether it means a new graphics card, or whatever. I am suspecting my graphics card has had its day, and it's time to get a new one, most likely.
  25. I posted this in another thread, but that thread is deep down on the first page, so I will post it here... Apparently, I seem to get freezing at times to this day, and apparently it occurred while I was on YouTube, and not Second Life. I had a freezing occurrence a few minutes ago, and a pop-up just before the last unexpected crash showed something associated with NVIDIA. Sounds like a graphics card issue, and not my computer. Would I have to update my NVIDIA graphics card, or would I have to get my graphics card replaced? I did also have dust accumulated in my CPU tower over the last few months. The tower is cleaned out as of this evening. It seems to be pretty clear now what it is on my side. Or could dust have taken a toll on my NVIDIA graphics card? My graphics card is a NVIDIA GeForce GT420. Lucky for me, I can go on Second Life on my laptop for the time being.
