  1. Best avoided, right? Building a 128x128 race track. Very simple but solid track. Just a fun project which I will take my time on. Tested and tested and tested, bikes and cars of all makes. Bought mesh and my own combined. Been asked to put it on the MP at some point or another, as folks seem to like it. All is in the the up-and-up on the bought mesh and textures (some are mine, so...), but all rights and parts are according to TOS compliance. My question is: I saw a bike seller been taken down by none other than Harley Davison. Yes, really. Perhaps deservedly, I am on the fence there, the
  2. This has been asked and answered a 1000 times already, do a search :). My friends are from Canada to Egypt, real people. What you get into in-world can be a bit by chance, for me I got into driving and boating, for example. There are lots of cultures in SL. Too many to mention. Someome will mention theirs, if you are lucky. Some regard it as role play. Some regard it as a game. Some regard it as a dating platform. All those are foreign to me. I regard anyone I meet as RL people. My SL personality is the same as my RL one, basically. But I keep I things in SL. As others have said, l
  3. Physics, for one? Ever done any driving, flying etc in OpenSim?
  4. The term “cisgender” refers to people whose gender identity and expression matches the biological sex/gender they were assigned when they were born. I think that's an OK definition that many would agree with, and it describes people like me. Non-binary does sound like a computer term, I agree. Outside the gender binary, does that work? Genderfluid? I'm not an expert, just a straight emphatic guy. And "sexual"... well gender-based or something like that is a better word than sexual as I see it, in so many contexts.
  5. Don't really know where to post this, but just wanted to ask you folks. I just uninstalled FS from my HDD (had cache on my SSD) and reinstalled it on my SSD. Seems to make a world of difference. At my home I get the same FPS, but much faster going up after login. One of the most laggy SIMs I know of, Slatanic, is still laggy but now quite surviveable. It was not really before. Is SL just having a good day, or does it make that much of a difference? I dont have a monster machine. Desktop with MSI GeForce GTX970 4GB GDDR5, an i7 and 16 GB RAM. Plugged in at 70 MBPS
  6. Perhaps you need to see more nipples if that's the case But some good points made.
  7. It depends. When I was quite new and renting a place, I had some real griefers drop by all the time who would not leave. The same people all the time. All that noise in local chat is just not something you can simply ignore. I got the landlord to ban them. Second rental, a guy dropped in and just stood there for a long time. I said "can I help you?" His reply: So sorry, I used to rent here and have been out of SL for so long. Mind if I stay until I sort out my LMs? Me: Of course not, stay as long as you need to sort that out. He thanked me and left after a while. In my first Linden home,
  8. "Better" might not be the right word in general. Just better at what it does right. Details and tweakability. More realistic even, if done right. Have you looked closely at something like the hands, the veins etc? It's not the quality that's the problem, but the narrow choices. I basically went mesh because there were a bunch of overpriced non-mesh avis at the time, I bought a bummer for 2000+ L and though h**ll no, no more of this. It was basically only Slink, TMP and AES back then, and AES is objectively much more developed than Slink male. Was then, and still is. And TMP is, well, TMP. Loo
  9. With emphasis on almost. I've had this one for a while. (This was a discussion in the in-world group. Some interesting responses, so worth giving it a shot in this forum as well) I subjectively think the AES (Aesthetic) may be the best looking male avi in SL, and much, much more customisable than people give it credit for. Tweaked well, it looks better nekkid than any, and much more detailed. A muscle monster or a fit swimmer, your choice. It can take tweaking better than most smoother (look wise) avis in my experience. But it's the clothing options. Seemed promising for a while, but
  10. Yeah, this too. OP, has your laptop started getting noisier and/or hotter lately?
  11. Could be lots of things. Malware, adware, spyware can slow you down. I'd check for that. Maybe your system has gotten slower because it needs a good cleanup. Could be your connection, at your end or your ISP or in the middle somewhere. I'd check ping times and packet loss, and then start troubleshooting my computer. Can you post your specs?
  12. OP, if you've seen a Dalek in SL it might have been me. But I'm actually human. No, it's not the same, I know that. But I fail to see how it is anyone's business as long as you're not hurting anyone. I don't care, and I don't know anyone who does. Managing one gender is enough for me. If you manage two, you are better at multitasking than I am.
  13. I'm on the same PC (not the greatest, but should be good enough for SL), same connection plugged in at 70 MBPS (no Wifi), where things went fairly smooth - as far as SL goes - as before with few issues. Fairly clean desktop Win 10 install. But I'm getting serious rubber banding issues even at 100 - 130 FPS on a driving track. Same numbers in FS performance tools as before. It's not the places I visit. 2RAW gets restarted frequently and is notoriously low lag. Sturgis, Legends MC, Deezul Raceway, same thing there. Weird thing is that everything is going super smooth until just boom...
  14. Welcome to SL. For 50-80 % of us this is normal
  15. Yeah, get in-world too. There are many who will help on this forum, absolutely. But don't be in a rush. Explore in-world too - see what is out there. Don't miss out on that experience. That's the main part of learning SL. While simultaneously never be afraid to ask here, of course.
