  1. Thank you again Rolig and Wulfie - Always great to come into this forum and learn new stuff 😍 My photo-edit program (and my skills in this) are at a very low level, so I have a way to go yet, but learning all the time... Thanks again to the both of you for the help and explanations ...
  2. Thank you Wulfie for the explanation. Always good to know, what is really happening with the texture... I am not sure though, that I understand what you mean with this: "to make the last line of pixels on the opposite side transparent." - How can this be done, please? To upload another kind of texture, or what do you mean?
  3. Hi Rolig, like so many times before, you have once again made my day ... I changed the vertical scale from 1.00 to 0.98, and now it looks fine! Thank you so much... 😊
  4. Hi, I have a problem and I hope someone can help I created a box, hollowed and stretched it, to make a square screen around a platform. Then I uploaded the pga. texture I made, and textured the screen inside. Outside the screen is made blank and grey. - The top is made transparent. But... why does this ugly blank line appear on the top on the edge of the hollowed box, please ?
  5. Very quiet place next to abandonned land... Please have a look http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Lumoli/141/180/40
  6. Waterfront. Nice land for very cheap sale. Peaceful and quiet place. Moderate region. Have a look here please and see for yourself: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Hardrada/182/90/22
  7. Peaceful and beautiful place http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Hardrada/181/90/23
  8. There has always been people, walking around with signs saying: "The End Is Near!"...and there always will.
  9. Hi BonnieBeSavage Some boxes are made, so you do not need a sandbox to unpack them... You just R-click the box in your inventory, and click 'ADD', and then it will be attached to your body. - You can now click it, to deliver an unpacked folder to your inventory. Maybe this is such a box you have got here :matte-motes-smile:
  10. I spend a lot of time to copy and paste foreign languages in Google website to translate in IMs... and I would like to tell others, that they have this opportunity themselves too, so it is not always me who has 'this job', to translate from their language to English and back again. My question is: If I send a person a link to Google translate, will the instructions on this page be shown at my native language or theirs? - And are everybody able to use this page, no matter which country they are living in, in real life? In local chat, there is no problem, as I wear a translator which works fine... the IMs are the problem.

Are people power hungry, is that why so many ones are opening, do they just want to say "I own a club in SL" or ? I am not being sarcastic, just trying to understand. I think it would be better for clubs to merge, thoughts? I'm just venting, yes, but I also am curious to find out why there are so many clubs in SL. Same thing also happens in real life all the time. People try to fulfil a dream. Sometimes new clubs/shops/rentals push away older places, and all in all this makes the world dynamic and always changing. To merge is not always a good idea, if the parties do not know each other well ... You know, that if there were only 2 people left in the world, there would still be a risk of battle and war... (just have a look at some marriages) :matte-motes-wink:
  12. ClariceRose wrote: Even in places that you'd think would be "sex-free", there will always be someone who is a pervert. Not the sim's fault though. Here are some things that may help you get less "Hey baby, you're sexy" IMs... 1. Put in your profile "I do not have sl sex". The perverts who read profiles will hopefully figure to not waste their time. 2. Make your own group and have at least 2 people in it (any groups with less than 2 will be removed). Once you have formed the group, you can make your own group tags such as: "Do Not Disturb" "Read My Profile" etc and things like that. 3. Activate your auto response. This way you can weed out any perverted IMs and they will leave you alone most of the time when they get an auto response. Hopefully those three things will minimize perverted IMs. It sometime seems that these "Hi how r u" or "you look sexy" or tp-request-out-of-the-blue IM-guys, never read profiles, before they "attack"...unfortunately... Maybe they aren't even capable of understanding a "Do Not Disturb"-tag or an auto response? If I should be a bit cheeky, it also seems like they are not even capable of finding an AO in SL... not even a free one. Guess we just have to learn to shake our heads, ignore, and move on.... :matte-motes-sour:
  13. Rolig Loon wrote: But that's not what's in the script you posted. You wrote llSetText("My Text" ", <1.0,1.0,1.0>, 3); which is quite different. It does not include the string of \n characters at all, and it sets alpha to 3, which is an impossible value, AND it contains an extra " mark, which will generate an immediate syntax error. Thank you ...

[ .... ] Exactly where I put it. llSetText("Text here\n \n \n \n",<1,1,1>,1.0); It works like a dream. I copy-pasted the script to here, in the hope that you would show me... I keep getting a syntax error. A repetition of your answer, has not made it more clear to me, sorry. - But thank you for trying to help, anyway...
  15. Hi Artorius Yes, I could make an invisible cube with the hover text, and put over the item ... the problem is, that I cannot link this cube to the item, that I am wearing... I can only put the script in the attached item.
  16. Hi Rolig I am sorry, but I have now tried to copy your text, and put it in various places in the script ... It does not seem to make any difference. Where exactly is the right place to add the \n \n \n \n",<1,1,1>,1.0) ? The script looks like this: // Hovering Text Script // Written by and Comments by: Malaer Sunchaser // Very Simple Script that allows you to hover text over an object. // How The Script Works: // llSetText(); Specifies for the object to create text above it. // // Customizing the script: // Change the text inside of "TEXT GOES HERE" to whatever you please. // The <1.0,1.0,1.0> is the color the text will show in Float form, 1.0,1.0,1.0 // being WHITE while, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0 is BLACK this is all in RGB (Red, Green, Blue). // experiement with combinations to get different colors. // The 1 at the end sets the text's transparency, 1.0 being SOLID, while 0 would be clear, // and .5 would be half way between clear and solid. default { state_entry() { llSetText("My Text" ", <1.0,1.0,1.0>, 3); } }
  17. Is it possible to make the text in a hovering script flow even higher above the item, I put it in, than the standard hight does? If so, how to do it? Can someone tell me please?

No, people can put their posts where they prefer. It is not up to me to decide. But if it is all about technical help, it would be better to ask either in one of the helping-sections, or in this case: ask in the FS-group, I think. Don't you think so too? Personally I think the FS-group inworld is amazing to guide people, who have some problems with the viewer. They give instant help and support... I have had a lot of help there once, so I can warmly recommend them.

I can not follow up that answer, because I didn't ask specific enough, I can not mark it as solved, shall I ask in the forums instead? Because I can follow up a reply there and clarify my question. Hi Aatami You are able to follow up in this question and answer section too ... Up in the right corner of your post, there is button. In the menu you will find an option to edit your post. Your new text/follow up, will then show in the bottom of your original post :matte-motes-smile:

Also there is now a bright neon green strip along the top bar of my viewer and it is behind it.A nyone have any idea what is going on and how to maybe fix it? Hi Benson You have put your question in the section for discussions, and there is not much to discuss about your subject, is there?... So I would only tell you, that there is a great group inworld, with the purpose of helping with all kinds of questions about FireStorm, if you should run into more problems with the viewer. I will give you the key to the group, so you can find it easily. 3a1be8d4-01f3-bc1a-2703-442f0cc8f2dd
  21. Hi ladygithany I am sorry, but I think your post here could be understood wrongly, and unfortunately could turn into a backfire ... I would hurry to remove the name of the sim, if I were you. You got your money back, even very quickly, and I do not think you really can blame the sim owner, that he/she has a different opinion about your ad, than you have yourself. Besides that, some people now might see your post here, as an attempt to save the next week's L$ for renting space somewhere else for advertising, by putting your picture-ad and your name here in the forum. As a hidden advertisement.... I am sure, it was not your intention, but people could get the wrong impression here... Just if you have not thought about it yourself. :matte-motes-wink:
  22. Pamela Galli wrote: Kierkegaard says there is no faith without doubt. Otherwise the choice to believe is no choice, and faith is a choice, one of the few truly free choices available to us. A correction: According to a Franklin biography I recently read, he emulated Socrates by asking questions, which is of course what is meant by the Socratic Method. Kierkegaard certainly has a point. Even Jesus himself had a moment of doubt, when he hung on the cross. I think... it is healthy to have doubts from time to time, on everything. It makes it more difficult for the rulers of the world, to control us like robots.

  24. entity0x wrote: Hello Muletta, thanks for your response. I am not asking anyone to be forced and neither am I making a solid and emphatic demand that only quality freebies be made. This is mainly a topic to address the statement made that "Freebies should not be reviewed", and I pose that they are not above reviews. I believe freebies should be a true gift, with no less quality than paid products (with all things considered, as stated in a recent post - many freebies are from antiquity). I am not an idiot, and I take all the exceptions to the rule into consideration, before making a statement. I love getting freebies, and I love giving freebies, and I love giving good freebies. It's my part to giving back into Second Life what I got when I was first broke in SL and getting freebies myself. I also made many purchases from vendors who gave out freebies - because their freebies were amazing. In my opinion, it is a good thing to both receive and give out reviews on any product, regardless of price. Since the item is being used by the merchant to get attention, will get attention and probably future sales, why do many feel they are above the review system or think somehow they are some Great Benefactor? I was an SL newbie once, so this topic is to the SL newbies, and to sensible people. I have left many reviews on a variety of priced products, free or not, constructive and honest. Many of them have also been taken down because the merchant went mental - this discourages people from reviewing. I've also received much appreciated reviews on my own, which I use to improve my products, or include features in updated versions. I've even updated a 'free' product to a recent version as my Blender skills have developed, and updated all other products as well with what I've learned. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ The question is though, can we always trust these reviews? I have received splendid stuff from MP, which other people have given 1 star and bad comments... and the other way around too. - But that is probably another discussion. Some customers do not read the instructions before buying, do not know how to make things work, and do not bother to ask the seller, before giving a bad review. I do not always pay much attention to the reviews all the time, I admit. If things are for free, then I do not like to complain about a bad product at all. Like in the real world: it is the thought that counts, and not the gift itself. Besides that, I never write bad reviews for bought stuff either, without contacting the seller first, and give him/her a chance to fix it...what they often are happy to do... I think most merchants here, are proud of their creations... You can never avoid some bad apples in the basket, no matter how many reviews you give here and there.
  25. entity0x wrote: Buyer Beware: Land / Mall Rental via Boxes Beware.. If you click a rental box whether it be a 'peaceful' land rental or mall/prim 'repose/respite'-themed rental without first ensuring you can contact the seller, you may end up being out of some $L. This may include rentals like "$149L for 50 prims weekly" or "$100L for 40 prims" that are advertised. The problem is compounded by absent landlords, who may not even return your messages for 3 days or more, thus losing 3 days of your rental. Some won't even respond to notecards sent to them. You will have no recourse to settle this dispute, and if you respond to their continued advertising of similar rentals on this forum, your replies will be reported and removed. $L transactions can only be accessed in your account up to 30 days, so if you need to go back in time in order to prove a claim you make - you will not be able to do so. I currently rent land space from a good source - who promptly responded to my request for rental, answered any questions, and I went ahead and prepaid over a month for it. Just a reminder if you still want to gamble - that you only purchase a week at a time - or else you may find out what I have - a sim that was packed up and empty a week later. Yes, you are right, Entity0x. Life is full of risks... ...like when a landlord waits and waits several days for to give a tenant a chance to renew, before he takes back her expired home or land... but never hear a single sound from this always-online-tenant, who was normally very talk-active and sweet, when he did her a lot of special favours during her period of renting.
