  1. Omg Zeta found it! God it's crazy how much things have changed visually. Thank you very much everyone!
  2. Hi there! I'm feeling nostalgic and I wanna see if I can find this old youtube video from when SL was becoming popular. It's a music video made in SL and it's play "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" by Tears for fears. Idk if it was actually "good" but it got me interested into trying SL and I think the song fits perfectly for a new person being introduced to the world. I had no luck so far but maybe older users know what video im talking about? Maybe it was popular
  3. How do you feel about sansar now vs when it first opened up? (If you were a user from the get-go?) Anything you feel it does better than SL? Would you recommend it to a friend?
  4. Sounds exciting! I hope you have the office your dreams!
  5. I've done Pinterest and Google. I would like to see fellow SLer's/gamers.
  6. I'm thinking about redecorating my office and would like some ideas. What does your personal office look like? (RL preferably, but SL offices are fine)
  7. I type in keywords in the search bar to find interesting places, but no one's there. I've tried joining the group of the sim(s) in hope of contacting someone, but no luck. It just seems much harder to find, meet, and chat with new people than it was a few years ago. I've been trying to be more active in SL because I have so many memories of great experiences in world, but missing out in a community with my shared interests and maybe age group(I'm in my twenties) really makes my experience lonely and dull. Am I doing something wrong? I really don't want to give up on SL.
  8. How many of you try to make your avatar look like your offline selves. I don't mean just, "We have the same hair cut" or "We have the same color eyes", I mean the resemblance is so strong that if a full body photo of both you and your avatar were side-by-side, that there was no mistake that your avatar looks like you (face, body, hair, etc.). It doesn't have to be PRECISE, but in the ballpark. Are there any studies on this? Like, "People who choose to be something completely different are more creative" or anything like that? I find it interesting. Thanks!
  9. Does anyone know if this is how Sansar is going to be for all time? The client JUST came out for beta. Simmer down, people. New features are going to be added most likely . So far I'm loving how it runs and looks, but the system requirements are crazy for the average-Joe. P.S: Does anyone know how to run?
  10. I think both for me. I'll get into this later, but I don't think SL is the sole culprit for losing interest IRL. I grew up with SL and been online on and off when I was a early teen, but I became really active around late highschool several years ago. There wasn't and isn't anything like it. I would play MMOs before SL, but I think SL drew me in with its potential with what you could do. Over the years and through talking to people in-world (and on this forum), I have learned new knowledge and picked up a few skills like how to communicate and express myself more clearly online and RL, tech-knowledge, learn how to style my RL home and my appearance, graphic design, and 3D-modeling. Again, SL wasn't the sole reason for me learning those things, but it helped. When I entered college, I began to struggle with my mental health and I think SL became a growing space for me creatively. When I was stressed I would try to unwind by exploring or editing skyboxes and it would help, I think. I think people need a space to grow and be alone, and SL was part of that, for me. Why I could have trouble connecting with RL is kinda a question Im trying to answer. Am I struggling with that because I invested my childhood with online games and that was a big part of my mental illness, was it because of mental health alone, or both? I'll keep that in mind for my next therapist visit.
  11. Hello! It seems whenever I try to start second life by clicking the official viewer, I get a message to update my viewer and I agree. However, it says it cannot run and my only option is to "Abort". I can still log on just fine, but this happens every time and I'm not sure how to fix it. Any suggestions? -Thanks!
  12. I have a desktop with these specs: CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4670 CPU @ 3.40GHz (3392.18 MHz) Memory: 16338 MB OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 64-bit Service Pack 1 (Build 7601) Graphics Card Vendor: NVIDIA Corporation Graphics Card: GeForce GTX 970/PCIe/SSE2 My advice is this: You don't need the highest specs EVAR to run SL at lightin-fast speeds, you most likely won't even if you do. SL's lag is notorious and it mostly comes from their side of things not yours. Of course this doesn't mean you can run SL with a computer from the 90's. Even with my specs, fast-wired connection to internet (SL can have issues with wifi) and if I'm in a place that doesn't promote tons of lag, SL will still have it's issues because SL isn't just a game that remains the same, it's CONSTANTLY changing. If you have the money, invest in a better GPU and hope for the best. Also, if you're debating between desktop and laptop, go for the desktop. Personally, it's just makes more sense cooling-wise, the ability to upgrade for the future, and you get more bang for your buck. For laptops you're just paying for mobility. They're okay for a luxury but my desktop is my main system for these reasons. Hope everything goes okay!
  13. Thank you very much! Your play-by-play really helped and I now have all the windlight options to my use!
