  1. Thank you for the input cykarush. I got down to the store and bought me a complete new PC. SL is running nice and smoothly now /Amy
  2. Hi! Over the past year, SL have been running slower and slower, and the lagging can get horrible in places with more then maybe 10 avis. If I look at the activities in windows, there is not much running in the background, but still the GPU, CPU, disc and memory are often used up. I want to be able to go to a club, to dance and chat like anyone else without having to stand in a corner and cam zoomed in on the floor just to be able to type properly. And in a quieter environment, I also want to be able to run a second copy of SL ( I have two screens). Here is a copy of what Firestorm tell about my pc and my settings: Firestorm 6.0.2 (56680) Feb 9 2019 18:55:39 (64bit) (Firestorm-Releasex64) with Havok support Release Notes CPU: AMD A10-7800 Radeon R7, 12 Compute Cores 4C+8G (3491.25 MHz) Memory: 8137 MB OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 64-bit (Build 17134.706) Graphics Card Vendor: ATI Technologies Inc.

  3. Hi! I have problems with my world map. When it's zoomed in on a place, it works just fine, and as I zoom out, all the new squares that becomes visible adds nicely. Until I get zoomed out half way. Then the entire map turns "ocean blue" and all the land I just saw is gone. If I zoom in again, it comes back. If I scroll when seeing a map, new bits is added as it should, but as soon as I zoom out, it all goes blank again. I have waited for 30 min for it to rezz, but nothing happens. I have noticed this the past days, but I don't really know when it started. I am using the Firestorm Beta viewer 6.0.1. but I am having the same problem with Firestorm 5.1.7 so I don't think it is the viewer as such that's causing it. Any one got an idea on how I can solve this?
  4. Thank you all for your inputs on the topic and it has been very informative. However, I feel that the thread has derailed and since I don't think I as the creator of the thread have the power to lock it from further postings, I can just encourage everyone to stop posting anything more. Again, thank you all for your inputs. /Amy
  5. Thank you Nalates. If I understand you, I'll better wait a while and see what comes out of this "Bakes on Mesh"-thing.
  6. Thanks a lot LittleMe for that link. Now I got some reading to do :-)
  7. Ok, I am finally going to ask one of those dumb questions and I am feeling old enough to not care if it's noobish or not. It's all about getting a mesh body or not. I have been in SL close to 2½ years by now and up to now I have stuck to my system body. I have a set of mesh hands and feet but not yet invested in a full body. I got a system shape I like, a face I love, an awesome mesh skin and on top of that a cute tattoo. I sometime get compliments for having a beautiful avatar, hopefully not only from people that wants to get into my pants. Why do I even bring up the issue? Well, when I get into a bikini the system body has its shortcomings. For one thing, the shoulder blades tend to look pretty weird in some poses. I have tried a demo of a mesh body and it looked great, but what I missed was the ability to edit the shape, and I don't want to look just like everyone else. I want to be able to edit my shape and look like me... sort of. So let's get noobish... If I get a mesh body, can I edit the shape of it just as easy as I can with my system shape, or will I be stuck with a shape that someone else have made? /Amy
  8. I guess I will have to go by the line that Lilith suggests, but I will also have a look at boat rezzers. Thank you all for inputs./Amy
  9. Hi! I have a sim and I want to allow people to rezz objects such as boats on my sim, but I don't want it possible all over the place. I want to restrict this ability to a small area at sea - a rezzing area, just as those that can be found in many ports all over SL. How do I make one of these? Thanks /Amy
  10. Now the whole thing is making more sense to me. Thank you LittleMe for explaining /Amy
  11. Sorry for jumping in here, but... If I understand this correctly, it's no point in upgrading a decent PC. 8gb RAM and a good cable is good enough and no matter what I buy, it will still be a lot of lag when I go to a club full of dancing avatars, right? /Amy
  12. Jerilynn: Thanks for explaining the functions. Alwin: I think you nailed why it didn't work for me. Thanks a lot. /Amy
  13. Hi! I have created a group for my parcel and my role have the ability to freeze and eject other residents. I have tried to use both abilities on my ALT, but nothing happens to her. She could still type in chat, move around and touch things and that puzzles me. First of all, what can I and the target expect to experience when I try to freeze/eject a resident on my parcel? Secondly, does anyone have a hint on why those abilities doesn't work on my parcel? (I'm using Firestorm 5.0.7) Thanks/Amy
  14. Pussycat Sounds that you have done some serious thinking on the matter, and have a set of interesting ideas. Pity I don't have the resourses either to make it come true :-(
  15. Callum and Conall, thank you for the links. I will have a look at those places.
