  1. I forgot to say, you might have a look in the Baddies inworld shop if they have one, or ask them privately or in their support group, as they might actually have system skins that they are just not actively marketing right now.
  2. Lots of skin creators supply both appliers and matching system skins. My own usual skin is from 7 Deadly Skins, who certainly do that. I'm sure other people here can recommend other suppliers.
  3. What you need is either (1) a skin package that includes both an applier for your body and a system skin for your head, or (2) an applier for your body and a separate system skin, in the same tone from the same designer, for your head. Looking at the Marketplace description for the Baddies skins, it appears the package only includes appliers, and it seems the creator does not sell system skins. So you can't use those skins on your head. It seems that the Slink body includes a tinting HUD which allows you to add colour to the body skin you are wearing, and maybe get a closer match with your head, but your head skin will stay the same.
  4. Do you need a hairbase at all? The function of a typical hairbase is to colour the scalp to make sure you don't have patches of skin peeping through your flexi/mesh hair. It can also soften the edge of your hair, blending it into the scalp a little better. However, a quality hair should not need a hairbase, and I personally never use one. You can get hairbases for a system head very cheaply (you can even make your own). I have a set of tintable system hairbases (suitable for male and female) which seem to be included with all the 10 L$ hairs sold by this designer.

    They're not that tiny at all. About 12 berths across per 256m sim makes them about 20 metres wide by 50 long, i.e. 1024m², a full premium parcel, so I think the "seaside" option will be a static houseboat with space for some over-water stuff like a patio and/or a small boat. The "land" option will be just a land parcel with house.
  6. Sounds like you are not wearing the alpha layer that comes with the Lara body. You need to wear that in order to hide your original skin.
  7. Which agrees with what I said ... no?
  8. You're right, carrying around lots of scripts does cause lag, and that's why some venues name 'n' shame the biggest offenders by listing their names in red on a board. If you are getting caught there, then you should look at reducing your script count. Vehicle operators are also concerned about script weight, which causes them to crash more often at sim-crossings. If you use Firestorm, you can find a list of the scripts you are wearing in the menu: World -> Parcel Details -> Script Info -> Avatar. This lists the objects you are wearing that contain scripts. There are also free script-counter gadgets available in the SL marketplace. Modern mesh content is usually quite well optimised, although things like clothes often contains useless little scripts for things like stopping you rezzing it or for interacting with a non-existent fatpack HUD. But you can often remove scripts from the objects, at the expense of losing functionality, for example they will no longer respond to HUDs. Before attempting to de-script anything, make a backup copy, and make sure the object's settings are how you want them. For things like a mesh body/head there might be a "remove scripts" button in the object's HUD or menu. If not, and the object is modifiable, open the object in edit mode, and in the Contents tab, remove any scripts you find; also select each linked part in turn so that you can also remove scripts from them. If the object has a huge number of linked parts which still contain lots of scripts (flexi hair with colour-change scripts in every strand, for example), there is a "remove all scripts" script available in the SL wiki which you can insert into the object to remove all the scripts (including itself).

  10. There is lots of educational material at https://www.gimp.org/tutorials/ , or if you have a specific problem, let us know and somebody here might be able to help.

    That's the most gigantic marina I have ever seen. I'm not sure there is such a demand for moorings, and ordinary residents are not going to want a mooring without some land to live on. The moorings are about 20 by 50 metres, i.e. 1024 m², and the access channels are tight to say the least, so I think those moorings are for Linden houseboats, mainly for living in, but possibly also for occasional boating.
  12. It's 149 now (though maybe still cheaper for group members inworld). It looks like Omega have increased their prices for relays/installers across the board, to 149 L for heads, 199 L for bodies, but still 99 L for add-on bits 'n' boobs.
