Eksynn wrote: so i have a question (or a thousand).. figured i'd open this thread to put up some questions and answers regarding SL weddings. guess i'll get right to it. i'll edit this list as i get more questions asked/answered. 1. what happens if the bride/groom loses connection? If you're using a wedding service of some kind in SL, this is something you'll want to clear up before you book. Most likely they have a policy on how long they will wait if you're paying for someone's time (officiant, venue, etc.) If you're putting everything together yourself, I'd still make sure the whole wedding party knows in advance what to do and/or how long to wait. 2. what happens if a guest does? Depends on the guest, but most likely you'd keep going. 3. how does one start investigating the details on how to have a wedding on sl? I'd start by visiting the various wedding businesses to see what they have on offer. 4. is it possible for SL weddings to hold legal ground in RL? (presuming there's a contract) SL only, without a proxy? It seems unlikely, but if this is a concern for you check with the relevant governments to be sure. 5. what about from a religious/church standpoint, assuming the couple uses an actual minister? That would depend on the religion. Both parties need to check with the appropriate person or organization to see what applies to their religious tradition. 6. that's that for now. please ask anything in this thread if you're curious about something, but keep it related to the topic please. hopefully someone will come around and answer your question. regardless, i'll put it up if it's a valid question ^^ ~fuyu

I couldn't disagree more. They did an amazing job retrieving a very old acount of mine, created well before 2005. They were able to identify me as the owner of the account in another way.
  4. My suggestion is to ask on the Adobe forums. Relatively few SL creators use Illustrator. I'd love to help, myself, but I'm still a beginner with that program.

I totally agree! They should start with the people roleplaying racist stereotypes.
  6. I've seen some hospitals, fire departments, etc. around sl that had applications out for people interested in roleplaying. They probably offer training to new group members. Or you could find the owner of the groups and ask them for suggestions on how to get the training you need.
  7. Sure, it can work. While I'm not familiar with this specific location, I have visited a couple of inworld restaurants that charge a fee and enjoyed myself. No idea if they actually manage to recoup their costs through the fees they charge. Probably not.
  8. I'm pretty excited about it, but I don't really expect it to be open to the general public until next year. Based on the released information I'm expecting a sort of game engine/virtual world hybrid. If LL successfully delivers on that I'll be very happy. I've liked that LL has been releasing some information about Sansar over time. There is still some information that I'd really like to have, but hopefully that gets released around the time that the creator preview starts. I haven't applied for it because right now I'm unsure whether I have enough time or the skill set to properly take advantage of the preview. If applications were still open in about a month I would have had a better idea. I already have some ideas for experiences I'd like to create. I need more information in order to narrow down which is the most feasible and then start creating assets.

(Bolding mine.) I don't usually care what people do here, but would be unconscionable. Also a few other things. But let's just stick with unconscionable as that's the politest I can be about this at the moment.

  11. The Marketplace has a section for that. You'll need to check the Permissions on the right side and the Product Details for licensing information (commercial/noncommercial, etc) for each listing.

I found that I didn't really start to catch on until I found the "right" set of tutorials for me. My suggestion is searching out the very best beginner's tutorial series you can find. I remember liking the offerings from Blender Cookie, Blender Guru, and Lynda. I know at least one has a free trial. Another has a big YouTube channel and is very active in the Blender community. Make sure that whatever you end up with uses version 2.5 or later, and best case is as close to the version you downloaded as possible. If you're completely new to creating in 3D space, learning to build in SL will also give you a great jump start. You can also get quick, real time help from others. In general, I'd be looking for tutorials from people who not only teach the specifics of how to make specific objects, but who take the time to really explain theory, proper techniques, and so on. I've never used Poser. If it helps, though, Blender has built in rigging and animation tools. There is also a plug-in for Blender called Avastar that helps with making things work in SL. You'll often find one of the creators of the plug in answering questions in the Mesh section of the forum and they also have an active group inworld. This is a great time to be getting involved with avatar creation because Project Bento recently went live on the main grid. SL can use all of the avatar creators it can get right now.

If I can't do the WoW ones fine, I'd want to do my own elf ones or something. The stuff I've found in game so far is kind of lackluster for looking how I want. It's not that I'm out to do anything illegal- I like fantasy-based characters. That's what I want to have. Sorry I asked. No need to be sorry. I think a big part of the reaction is that many here have seen similar questions asked by people who were only interested in importing regardless of whether it was legal or not. I hope you do pursue learning to create your own characters. There are several great modeling and texturing programs out there, so please don't just give up if you don't like Blender. You'll find there are great creator communties inside and outside SL, especially for character creation. I'd call character creation a relatively rare skill in SL, so also don't be shy about taking your learning outside SL. I would argue that the best resources are not found inworld, except for SL-specific subjects of course. (I've seen some very *cough* derivative classes given in SL for modeling applications. I've seen flat out wrong information and awful advice given out by inworld instructors. I've also seen an inworld teacher who was truly an expert in a few areas of her program of choice, who taught information not available elsewhere. Hopefully she goes back to teaching someday!) Going as close to the source as you can helps connect you to higher quality instruction, other serious students and/or professionals and sometimes the expert instructors themselves.
  14. Something appropriate to the event itself. I'd look at where it is being held, how it is being presented, and whether there is information on the invitation about a recommended dress code. If there's no other information, I'm probably going with the equivalent of business casual or whatever's normal for my avatar.
  15. Which program were you planning to use?
