  1. Hi, everyone—happy holidays! Can anyone help me ID this hair or something similar to this hair?

Welcome to the club of those who bought their Macs at the wrong time. :matte-motes-angry: Plus lots of people are having lots of problems since the beginning of the month, like mesh not rezzing. I suspect that may have something to do with increased traffic for Christmas shopping and lots of frequent TPing by lots of avs for Advent calendars. Others tell me that can't be it of course. Whatever is going on there, SL is having extra problems of late. Gavin Hird explains the NVIDIA + Sierra + SL problem in the thread Pamela linked to. He suggested the Open Sim version of his Kokua viewer (link in that thread) and it is much more stable for me. Cool Viewer is also working for me at the moment. I keep graphics minimised in general, and unticked various things in the graphics section of Preferences. When I need more graphics capability for some reason, I take that specific up and don't TP until I've lowered it again I also pay attention to when I've been using graphics intense software like GIMP or Blender or watching a lot of telly online and reboot before I go into SL. The situation has gone from being a nightmare "do I buy a new computer (really don't need one cause my 4 year old Mac is still going strong aside from SL), do I leave SL, arrgggh" to a nuisance, at least until I get my butt in gear with creating again. Bouncing between GIMP, Blender and SL is a real pain given the GPU issues. And we do need to turn shadows back on now and again to see how it's going to look to other people. Try Open Sim Kokua or Cool Viewer and if mesh isn't rezzing, TP out and back in again cause SL is a bit borked at the moment anyway. Pamela and Gitsy, thank you so much! This is very helpful, albeit slightly disappointing.
  4. I'm hoping someone could help me with this. I've recently rejoined SL, and I've been experencing severe lag, slow rezing, and I almost always DC (screen goes black and then crashes) when I'm on a busy sim. My compuer (iMac purchased in 2012) is not old, and I'm wondering if its my in-game settings. Here are my specs: macOS Sierra Processor: 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5 Memory 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M 512 MB Any thoughts?

Also, a mesh body can never make a good looking avatar in itself, it can only add to the qualities of the classic avatar underneath it. So work on your classic avatar first because if it doesn't look good, covering it with mesh isn't going to help. Thank you so much for this response! Are there any specific stores you would reccomend so I can work on my classic avatar?
  6. Hello, everyone! I have recently returned to the SL after a nine year absence (only played for a few months), and I'm looking to jump back in with both feet. If anyone is interested in making a new friend, let me know! Some of the things I enjoy are clasical piano, jazz, literature, and modern architecture.
  7. Dansintherain, I'm having the same problem as you. I've just returned to the game after a nine year absence, and I have no idea whether to buy mesh or not. What I am taking away from this post, however, is to wait it out until bento becomes more ubiqitious. Also, am I correct in saying that mesh is not ubitiquous yet?
