  1. I'll have to check out Furry Town later on tonight... Likewise, I would also suggest getting involved in some different groups here on Second Life. Just chatting with people can help you figure out things.
  2. It's the internet, in which animosity reigns surpreme. Second Life is just the meta-verse of the internet, so all the horrible things you'd expect from any other website can also come to life here. And don't think being a furry makes life easier; not only can other furries be racist and rude, they'll start to slap a lot of negative animal stereotypes on you. As long as you're white and happen to be a fox, wolf, dog, or cat, you're pretty much safe... All other racial groups/animal combinations tend to get picked on... Heck, I'm a white guy, but because I always use some kind of reptilian, avain, or shark as my avatar, I tend to get a few disgruntled comments from the other furries.
  3. Well, I could point you to some of the furry hotspots... If I knew where the good ones were at...
  4. I seemed to have found another hairstyle that will work in the mean time; it's not too bad... And while I'm at it, let's just show off some more pictures of the most boring shark in the world! And you can't get more boring than playing a piano... Because everyone knows that piano players are boring! Ahhh Second Life... Where I can go off and be a lonely, miserable man! Or um... shark...
  5. You are able to use mesh hair on the model, but as the case is with your rabbit, the head is often smaller to work with mouth meshes and thus I can't rescale the head without screwing up the eyes and muzzle! And I could say that Japanimation hairstyles are in, but then again, furry characters have always been known to have some pretty wacky hairstyles... =P

So hopefully it isn't too horrible of an example)... It's a kind of hairstyle that I've been using for a very long time on my characters; perky bangs in the front that don't block out the face, while the rest of the hair is long in the back... If you want to see other examples (although a lot of weird garbage), my deviant art gallery has some examples: http://darkdijinartie89.deviantart.com/gallery/?catpath=/

I'm using the Avinity shark avatar, in which I didn't use the digigrade legs and "arm fins" on it, and he's wearing the female hair. Right now I'm trying to find a hairstyle that's long and has some nice big bangs on it (not bangs that make me look like some wannabe emo kid though) that won't clip through the backside of my body or get lost on the back fin. I also need to fix those arm bands so they aren't clipping through the arms, considering I want to have this "buff yet sleek" appearance... If I wanted to run around as some big old hulking mass on steroids, I'd just roll a male orc on World of Warcraft :B

  9. Pamela Galli wrote: it is better. But not to those with an overweening sense of entitlement. The world owes them whatever they can beg, borrow, or steal. Because they deserve it. So I am just a stupid sharkie with no real understanding of the "real world"... =/ Lame joking aside, I just don't see the appeal of using/stealing another character from a movie, game, or book not only because of copyright issues, but also because in a place like Second Life, there's just no room for personal expression at all when you're using a character that truly isn't yours. I just don't see how anyone could be so uncreative in this sense that they resort to using an acting through another character in place where virtually anything is possible in an endless choices/endless consequences sort of way. Perhaps this is due to the fact that I see avatars on SL as a big chunk of who that person is, rather than a collection of pixels and codes... Seeing someone just rip off another established character is just saddening... But again, I'm just really stupid and don't see things like everyone else... In some form or another.
  10. I know this is going to sound really stupid and retarded; but isn't just easier (and better) to come up with your own concept and character as oppossed to having to be something that isn't of your own creation? It's easier to be yourself and it won't cause problems with copyright... Or am I just really stupid in thinking it's better to try and fumble with some form of originality as oppossed to being a a-hole and infringing on someone's work (or stealling it)?
  11. Hopefully nobody's going to get upset with my rather ugly avatar... Considering there's still a few things I want to fix, but haven't been able to find... I don't bite... very often.... Although those clipping armbands though...

If have a no-copy vehicle (which is pretty rare these days) then never ever do a sim crossing on it most times the vehicle ends up on some parcel somewhere. When so then ends up back in your Lost and Found folder. Either by parcel auto-return. Or when auto-return off then by the parcel owner eventual logging in and returning it to you have personal fell off 100s of vehicles. Most times can find or get back. But sometimes nada never. It appears that the vehicle didn't cause any problems after I logged off and back onto the viewer. As long as there isn't some motorcycle floating in the air causing server lag on some parcel I went tumbling through, I'll be fine. =)
  13. Yeah, for a while I was using this horse avatar, but the head looked wrong and really wasn't expressive enough (then again, it was a free avatar, so I couldn't complain that much abou it).

  15. So judging from what I've read so far, it appears that the issue is just simply the computer and servers having to transfer information between two locations with me zipping through boundaries too fast. It's common to have that problem when crossing a sim border. When I am using a vehicle I find it helps to turn down graphics settings to the lowest level without going so far as to spoil your enjoyment of the scenery and to slow down and even pause for a few seconds before crossing. My friend said it helps to do this because it allows the next region to load a little. The longest journey I ever managed in a vehicle without needing a relog was a 78 sim journey and I paused before each crossing. When we did long journeys together in a car or boat, my friend also recommended that I detach as many HUDs as possible and kept my clothing and attachments as simple as possible. Personally I think this is some pretty good advice for some people, such as myself, given how I have a hard time controlling knee-jerk reactions and forgetting that Second Life isn't like World of Warcraft (in which a zone on a continent can load with little or no problems as you fly or travel between them) and that I need to pause. Luckily most of the attachements I have on my main avatar are fairly simple, so I shouldn't have to worry too much about being a lag fest as I travel.
