  1. Just grabbed the Valentina for an alt, and it is pretty great, especially for a linden. The alphas are very nice, better than most bodies, and I was able to fit system mesh on her very quickly and easily (I tested with Carla's clothes). The only weakness really is the skin, rather bland. Still she is much better than a default system body and head, and there is a lot of free stuff for her. Or shop on 50 Linden Fridays, she seems to take Maitreya pretty well. I used freebie mesh eyes I had. But there is now an alpha for system eyes. IMO this is a great first Avi, really easy to set up, just open a Ruth and delete everything in outfit, and mount everything in the new body folder. It does not come with hair. I used a 1 Linden Rez hair.
  2. Cedric you are correct it does seem to be the sim edge. If I put the above water linked prim very near the edge the platform again fails. Putting it back in the middle and all is well.
  3. Oddly all three that I mentioned above were on sim borders. But one which works is over 4k in size. The one that fails 2k.
  4. I have all water-land in two different sims. I like to build a platform and set it just below the water line so that I can walk everywhere in shallow water. On one sim I can transport to the area and walk normally -- but on the other sim I cannot, I fall through the platform to the ocean bottom when I transport, but not when I walk. This happens in any TP, from outside the sim or within the platform. On the sim where I fall through I have to have a prim or land above water to land on, and then I can walk on the submerged platform normally. This happened on another sim which I no longer have, but the became normal one day. I have changed every setting I can and still I fall through. Also I cannot select the platform for "edit" without going below the water line. On the one that is working I can. So this must be a sim setting that is causing this, which I cannot change. Currently my only solutions are an invisible platform above the water line, which is not great since I appear to be on the surface of the water, or linking to a prim that is always above the water line which does actually solve the problem, but does not explain it to me. Can anyone shed some light on this?
  5. I have just given up - I will come back to SL later in the week, the system is just a mess for now. No login, no Marketplace purchases.
  6. I have basically been locked out of SL for two days, all of the 26th, and now half for the 27th (Eastern Standard Time). I have gotten on for short periods of time, only to be booted off. MarketPlace is nonfunctional. What a mess they are in.
  7. Yes it has recently Jan 2018 begun failing again.
  8. Price has been lowered, rear property now no longer free with front property.
  9. I have two 1536 parcels - The front one has prime waterfront, in Aediles. Both are all water, so very easy to set up, since there is nothing there. I have a large sample beach house on the property now. The waterfront front front is L$20,000 The parcel behind is FREE (L$1). Obviously both must be purchased by the same avatar or group, and the Free one is last. Frontage 57 meters. Come take a look. This is rare to find such a large parcel with good waterfront. I divided it between two Alts to save on Teir, which is then only $16 USD. SURL is http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Aediles/166/244/22 PM me as FaintOutline with any question. The beautiful house in these images was only L$595. I'm listed as a Newbie, because of Mesh, but around 10 years!
  10. It depends on how one views the structures on the mainland. I see them as virtual and therefore I can choose what I do and do not want to look at. If I derender a structure it is not there, unless I change it back to rendered. As far as I am concerned it is completely gone. However, if one's mental construct of SL, is that its an actual place, and one believes that avatars really live there, then there will be a nervous feeling that despite a structure not being rendered it is actually there. This feeling is almost religious in nature, and demands control over the other resident's building habits. Newbie -- ha! 10 years at least.
  11. Actually the vtech skins simply replace the Glam Affair body skin and create a match between the chest and body. But they don't match the glam affair heads from Catwa and Lelutka. Every vtech user ends up with a neck line which requires a necklace at minimum. Maitreya with Lelutka is so perfect for now I have given up on vtech.
  12. I bought a top as a gift for one of my alts. I cannot review the top, it says "you must buy first", my alt cannot review the top, same response from the marketplace. The top has a really nasty bug I did not notice in the demo. I am experienced, and nothing I do fixes it. Why am I not allowed to review a gift? I have run into this before.
  13. I finally have given up on the latest version of Firestorm (64-5-0-1-52150). Aside from the fact that it crashes every time it quits, it is just full of those kind of annoying "features" that are not awful or clear enough to report as a bug, but make an application really awful to use. Top of the list: 1) Avatar freezes, requiring restart of AO, and force quitting animations. 2) Mesh is ripped to shreds in the oddest ways when transporting. Happens so often I just expect to restart mesh head and body. 3) Control of avatars is spotty, one of those things you know is broken, but what exactly. I just got tired of seeing a report going to Apple each time I opened the app, and downgraded painlessly to the previous version. Yeah there were some nice improvement, especially in creation and navigation, but this was one of the worst apps I have ever used on the Mac. I am spoiled, apps just don't crash on the Mac, there are other issues, but crashing, seldom. Downgrading was painless. I always worry about Firestorm, no other Mac app makes such a fuss about a "clean install."
