  1. /me Laughs "Watch out Ingrid. What once have been seen can never be unseen. 😉
  2. Hi Ceka Until now I didn't even know there were bots in SL but reading a few threads about it, I'm quite sure that these visitors are. They arn't causing me any harm (as far as I know) so I'll just ignore them I guess.
  3. Hi Rick! I was thinking they might be some kind of bots as they share the same rezz day. I will browse the forum for threads about this topic.
  4. Hi! A while back I installed a security orb on my property and I have seen some weird people visiting. They are not causing me any troubles so I'm not that worried but I'm wondering what is going on. I check the visitor list about once in a week and there is usually 5-6 of these strange visitors. Their profiles are always completely blank and they all share the same rezz day. Anyone that have an idea of what is going on here and if I should do anything about it? /Amy
  5. Thank you so much Nalates. I will play around with different sizes and see what happens when I upload. ((And you are right about GIMP. I can resize images in it)) /Amy
  6. Thank you Sandi and Nalates. I will make another search for tutorials 🙂 I usually save the pictures to disk as *.png files and by using the "Current window" settings. When I view the info about the file on my pc it typically say 1920x1009, 2,6 MB, 96dpi. I use the tools in Windows to crop or GIMP if I want to do more advanced editing. I try to keep the dpi value if I can. When I upload the picture I can't select any resolution beside the preview (1:1, 4:3 and so on). I try to stick to *.png files. Could that be problem when uploading? //Amy
  7. Hi! I'm using the Firestorm viewer to take snapshots and saves them to my disk for editing. Lines and textures looks crisp and sharp both before and after editing but when I upload pictures to SL they looks fuzzier. It's like the uploading makes them lose their resolution. When I watch pictures in galleries in-world, all the pictures looks crisp. Is there anything I can do to make mine stay just as sharp as well? Thanks/Amy
  8. *Face palms* So simple and yet the only thing I didn't think of. Thanks a lot Mollymews!
  9. Hi! Lately I have noticed that when ever I type "AFK" in the chat my avatar "falls asleep" and it gets an "Away-tag". It doesn't matter if I type it in a sentence "Is she afk?" or just type "afk". Same result. I first noticed this after upgrading to the latest version of Firestorm, but the same happens when I use the LL standard viewer, so I don't think it's related to the actual viewers. I have a faint memory that I managed to turn off this "sleeping animation" a couple of years ago, but I can't figure out how I did it. I have asked the question in Firestorm support groups and I had two on the case but they didn't find a way to fix this either. (And yes, I am one of those stupid bimbos that never back up my settings before upgrading so no need to rub that in my face again) Does anyone here know how turn this thing off?
  10. Brodic, Thanks. I'll take a look at Steffi too. Thanks
  11. Built in?? What was they thinking? *lol*.
  12. Hi! I am trying to edit the CATWA Catya head and I got stuck on the shape of the lips. It feel like I have tried to shift all possible sliders and I have tried to wear other shapes, but how much I try I just can't get rid of those awful looking fish lips. I want something like the lips on my system head. Anyone that can kick me in the right direction?
  13. 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
  14. 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.

  15. 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?
  16. 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
  17. Thank you Nalates. If I understand you, I'll better wait a while and see what comes out of this "Bakes on Mesh"-thing.
  18. Thanks a lot LittleMe for that link. Now I got some reading to do :-)
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. Now the whole thing is making more sense to me. Thank you LittleMe for explaining /Amy
  23. 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
  24. Jerilynn: Thanks for explaining the functions. Alwin: I think you nailed why it didn't work for me. Thanks a lot. /Amy
  25. 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
