  1. I rarely use more then 8 (vertical) edges for any pipe or cylindric object in general,, you can even go with 4 for cables and wires, with smooth edge ofc...might help in the future with upload, LODs and overall land impact...
  2. Did you check a store called Prim Possible? Not sure if they do entire homes, but they have a lot of super low prim furniture that also looks good, would definitely fit into your tight prim count budget...

    Those are not 60s clothes nor could you call it loosely inspired by that era....First few years trends resembled the 50s but with the introduction of mini skirt, graphic and psychedelic patterns, bright colors, short hairstyles/pixie cut and different body type (Twiggy, Mary Quant etc)...Towards the end of the decade, we see drastic changes with hippy counterculture emerging, Vietnam war protests, Civil rights movement, overall anti-establishment sentiment and rebellion against the tradition, fashion trends reflect that... Lots of oriental influences mostly from India and Africa (patterns,
  4. Check this, I mean yes it`s just one item but very clever and well made (BoM skin can be applied to cleavage area for a seamless fit)...regarding deformers and clothes, it comes down to good rigging and some creators seem to be relying on alpha way too much, that solution doesn`t work well with revealing clothes...speaking of gowns (long skirts), a lot depends on AO movement, best to stay clear from overly active ones when wearing such items..
  5. Just a note, you can still use 2.5 update, there is a bound/dated version inside the folder, just unpack it, all updates still apply with the exclusion of boundless sliders so your old shape will work just fine.. HD make up or regular BoM layers is up to 3rd party creators. HD layers have same mapping but are cut away from the rest of the head and enlarged (to explain it in simple words). Best to contact your favorite make up creator and suggest they provide regular BoM layers, I`m sure they would if there is enough interest, it wouldn`t require too much extra work...HD eyeshadow and li
  6. I just got the 2.5 update and I`m so impressed with boundless version....Not sure if anyone tested t properly but you can literally achieve any shape you want and no need for any special HUDs, sliders do it all! Neck fits seamlessly to any body, multiple material options, super smart dev kit, testing tools, teeth options, piercings, HD, revamped moods, braces and so on... I don`t know why they did not advertise this more, especially after Catwa released their next gen heads and I suspect most people are completely unaware of what can be done with 2.5 Evo boundless version... btw, bo
  7. Physic can easily be created with SL tools, or if permissions allow, you can modify something you already have: right click, select edit from drop down menu and use sliders for various type of movement.....rename, save and done! In case you want customization beyond SL defaults (custom animations, deformers etc), check Birth,! Their stuff has lots of options, it`s well made and pricing is more then fair..
  8. It Girls, PEPE Skins, Amara Beauty, Glam Affair, Pumec, Mila, Skinerry, Bold & Beauty... Just make sure to demo both head and body cause it seems a lot of brands focus on detailed faces but not as much on body, I haven`t tested much lately so can`t really vouch for anyone in that sense... Some offer more diversity, some less, but each store mentioned above has at least a few worth checking out! Btw rather go to in-world store or check their Flickr, MP stores are not always updated on regular bases. Flickr is great source of info when it comes to shopping in SL!
  9. I feel like everyone is massively overreacting lately, I mean what happened to cultural exchange, learning and teaching about each other`s heritage? It has to start somewhere?! I say this as eastern European women, my part of the world, it`s rich history and heritage is completely disregarded in 99,9% cases (looking at you Hollywood), instead we are represented by some ridiculous stereotype; it`s always old, ugly, uneducated, backwards, part of some criminal organization, prostitutes, victims of trafficking etc etc, don`t even get me started with language, landscape, history, national fla
  10. That is Arise, the photo in your original post...I got some nice eyes from Izzie`s, she does great work, updates regularly and doesn`t overcharge (some creators seem to be going crazy with sets of eyes for 400L, utterly ridiculous and I say this as a creator)....When it comes to lashes, I would suggest okbye store, they seem to hand-draw lashes and it shows in all the good ways! btw, you can always search MP or in-world groups/places if you know the store name but not the owner and from there find the store link...most times MP store is not updated as regularly as in-world store, plus c
  11. I wouldn`t ask, but after a while (a couple of months top) I would expect them to offer paying half the rent or participate in some way (I know I would if situation was reversed)...I might not accept their offer, depending on their financial situation and how serious I am about the entire relationship, but I would feel better knowing they aren`t cheap and selfish (major character flaws in my book)
  12. System head has lower polygon count compared to mesh heads, mesh heads now even have HD layers which makes resolution beyond comparison.....I don`t know if system avatars even support materials cause I switched to mesh years ago, if not, that is yet another reason why make up and skins can never look as good (not just talking about shine/specular, but also normal map that gives additional 3d detail like pores, skin surface etc)
  13. Literally everyone is supporting Belleza Jake and Legacy, Legacy has BoM integrated, Belleza has always been a bit slow with updates but always provides them free of charge...when it comes to most supported bodies at this time, those 2 are clear winners.. I second what Drake said, Aesthetic if used as is, is the worst thing ever, but you can make it look good with a different head and good skin and ofc if you keep things well proportioned ...Speaking of Slink, the main argument against it that I have heard is lack of definition and it being more appropriate for late teens look opposed to
  14. Start of with getting some demos (test/try on version) for mesh body, head and skins, that is the biggest investment, clothes and hair are not expensive at all...I would suggest to join support groups for at least most popular brands and make a Flickr account cause creators use it as no1 advertising tool, plus you get various blogger posts with whole looks and all the info you need (example, exaple2)...Just make sure to demo everything and don`t fall for "everyone is using this and that" cause no, we are not.... find what appeals to you and make sure to check if body and head of your choice ar
  15. I`ve been trying to update my MP store with latest releases, I was able to edit listings and thankfully save, but publishing button brings me to this: No change since Friday. Anyone else having this problem?
