  1. I would try to be like Lewis Luminos in my approach if I ever had kids that were interested in SL. Forbidding your children stuff without reason and telling them why it is harmful plus showing what the fuss is about never ends well. I would be glad to share a hobby and would try to navigate them in anyway they needed plus maybe advice if they came across dodgy people (but that could be anywhere on the internetz). We probably would not play together much as I do a lot of adult content that I would consider not a good family conversation topic nor would I like to know about their risque projects of any kind. After all, we both us and kids have different personal space and privacy requirements so while sharing a metaverse to rant about at dinner and go clubbing is fun, telling your spawns about how you hate the sexy roleplay they are in might be stomping right over their privacy (and vice versa). Kweopi's example reminded me of pre-internet age as kids absolutely will do weirdest things if they find topic interesting or their peers do. My cousin, at the age of 8, learned that you could call a phone number and a lady will let you pick various options and press buttons akin to some simple sexy roleplay. He was just interested in that, not the later sex chat bit but he still done it over and over again, racking up a grand in phone bills. His parents? Blamed grandma living with them as their kid was not interested in those things to them nor known about phone sex as far as they known. Yep, he shown me said number and it bored me so I completely forgot about it. I was more into browsing newspapers for sex sections or erotic story ones and then hid them. In result, 12 year old me bought out all the gossip mags in the shop for all their porn. Internet makes such things accessible more easier so you have to watch out if your kids do not go too far by accident but at the same time cannot completely stop them as it is a part necessary in human development so the best rule is to make sure they stick to their peer groups and do not get up into anything dangerous or beyond their understanding. With teenagers, the best you can do is to see to them not mingling with people wishing to manipulate and use them, still in a manner that does not invade their personal space. Tricky. Clearly, I still need experience of bringing up kids beyond babysitting cousins or nieces and nephews that are kids of said cousins.
  2. I am looking for a fictional school roleplay sim that is not based on American schooling system. Catch is that I am after more mature, teenagey one that is fictional and not connected to a family roleplaying thing (I do not mind it being present just want more of plotted story and it being not the focus). Ideally, I am after secondary schools based around Japanese or British education systems. For maturity level, I would say something akin to Skins or Inbetweeners (both are British television shows) so mostly realistic teenagers which is why I say PG-13. Theme-wise, I do not mind anything unless it is overtly high fantasy or a jumble of genres blended together without explanation (best example: everyone is a monster living in a human world for now reason whatsoever). Other countries are fine, I just do not fancy writing characters in American schools as it is black magic to me , same as toning down older characters around kid ones. Looking for any other none school roleplays as well but that is secondary and would not mind finding the following: urban sci-fi/fantasy with a well written background that does not have a lot of factions, classes and races, something horror related that is not sex-focused (do not mind it being present just harder to write characterisation this way to me), anything dystopian with oppressive governments to fight and finally last one that might or might not include themes of those mentioned before - plotted roleplay with furry characters but with some sort of background why do various species vary and to be fair it could be all aliens :P.
  3. I am immensely curious - did they really apply for Omega support as they say? I know it takes long but I am somehow doubting it. If someone is in touch with Omega team - ask, maybe? As in the update above I see no mention and that is the first thing bodies do unless they provide their own kits like Slink used to before they got approved. What is more - in their case, they are revamping but a known brand so I think they would have waited to release with Omega support if they really cared. I vote it is all porkies plus I bet the mesh is similar to their old one in wonkyness. When they released their kit, it turned out their body had badly modelled TMP letters all over the darn thing and messing the whole thing up.
  4. I researched that actually and not for SL but wanted to export Sims houses as models to look at them. In case any other curious person wondered same - you sure can look at them but the models are actually bonkers. In Sims 3 they are all stretched and skewed to the extent you have no idea what are you seeing. It is fairly odd as making mods to inject into the game is much easier than going about looking at construction geometry. So there is that, in case anyone wanted to know - I like looking into how all games' tick, pft. However, in case of SL - you would literally be using assets you did not make nor have any creative rights to. Sure, if EA ever did sell them - they are free to do so ... but I assume even they would face some legal issues. Seems you are more after something to help you envision future house/decor so ... look for house decor programs or 3D software with assets built into it so you can easily make stairs, roofs and so on. Still, you probably would not be able to use them in SL but it could be a helpful visual tool.
  5. I assume both problems are due to connection changes. Although Firestorm could be just fussy and you might need to delete cache and/or user profiles (back any profile up before). Sometimes refreshing DNS on computer works, while on phone it is entering and exiting flight mode. The ability to send emails to IM in SL should not be affected at all as it is connected to your email BUT it could somehow have gotten issues sending. Try different connection? If there is no other ones - consider buying a prepaid pendrive which is a portable modem. EE should have them (it is a mobile network and they have shops everywhere).
