  1. I believe that would depend on the userbase creating for the platform -- I think even SL sanctioned events make use of what creators put out. Second Life creators tend to be overwhelmingly female, though I don't know if this applies to land barons as well. Most sims that are gender neutral (IE parks, recreational, etc) don't have a specific draw to them aside from being public locations to do meet and greets. However, I've noticed that in the past two years male items and fashion are definitely more accessible and varied, though most of SL is still aesthetically feminine. So I'm not re
  2. I prefer appliers. I usually only use tights as crotch covers, but I will wear underwear if the outfit looks strange when alpha'd. Mesh undergarments tend to float over the body, and can be derendered, so they're not as effective IMO.
  3. Thank you for the responses! Oddly enough I solved the issue by taking a different route. I use clip-studio paint, and originally was attempting a hard edge (no transparent pixels/anti aliasing) -- I am not exactly sure how alpha channels work in CSP, but I'll do some research for future projects. Regardless, duplicating a layer underneath it, creating a dark layer, and expanding the border edge did not seem to work. The fix came about by, instead of trying to line the cutout along the UV sections, simply taking airbrush tool and erasing/softening the edges down. So instead of spilli
  4. I'm attempting to create a crotch cover layer for the maitreya mesh body, but I keep winding up with a white seam around the points where it alphas out. I have tried both aliased and non-aliased edges, and have attempted uploading in transparent PNG and Targa. I'm new to creating additional layers and would very much appreciate any help. Thank you
  5. I painted my own furry mod -- it's not the best and took 2 days to complete, but I'm pleased with it. Though I have to wonder if there's a basic shader AO for SLUVs, that would've hastened the process some ^^
  6. OP, so many people have responded, so IDK if my comment will have weight -- but here it goes: There is a particular form of socialization that is unique to SL -- it has its own dialect (complete with slang, abbreviations, etc), unlike other modes of online or in-person communications. The things you are describing are not implicit to women on SL -- anyone who has been here a while generally expects a more nuanced approach to discussion. My RL bf, who has been on SL much longer than myself, can attest to the fact bland "Hello"s, "Hi"s and "What're you up to?"s do not reflect well on the me
  7. This thread helped me when trying to figure out photos. Aspect ratios can be difficult to understand when most are used to pixel height & width.
  8. Lurking here... I was on board with being more transparent and specific with consumers, the whole spiel about not worshiping TOS, or using TOS as a crutch or point to bully other users who want more open communications akin to what is available in other franchises and products. All good stuff until... whatever is happening now. Y'all have fun 😂
  9. Right now it seems like doll-like kawaii/lolita avatars are very popular thanks to the release of the genus baby face -- I'm an adopter of the style too. It has a completely different feel to it than a standard, anime avatar -- the clothing is lolita, but the faces seem influenced by Korean and Chinese makeup. It used to be a niche style, centralized just within the Asian community in SL, but it has since branched out to westerners. Many models and creators on flickr follow the trend now, and make apparel and cosmetics for the genre. Credits to Nekotto and Akiyo Noguchi on Flick
  10. Picture I took today with my friend, Novel! I've never done compositions with more than one model, so this was a good practice piece.
  11. Gonna be honest in that the destinations tab isn't a great resource when searching for regions. A majority of what pops under "what's hot" are dating sims, RP groups, shopping events, skill-gaming areas, and s*x sims. The other listed areas also tend to be RP focused or tailored to a hobby, like in-world boating or literature. As others suggested, groups and SL related discords are probably your best bet in terms of finding like-minded folks.

  13. As a newish player who didn't get the chance to grow into SL's large community or history, I'd say everything about SL is difficult for a new user to pick up. Socializing in SL is predicated on real-world social skills -- you have to actively (not passively) engage others here. Sending deluges of obscure greetings or friend requests will not turn out well for you -- the SL community is not about curation of an audience like on Twitter or other social media. When meeting other people, the established users here expect a modicum of good etiquette and, regardless of if they're roleplaying or
  14. Oh wow, I rarely post in forums so I wasn't expecting this level of response -- so thank you! 😅 Yes, I am familiar with the quick-fill option; and while using a default prompt hastens the listing process I still find myself swarmed with multiple, open tabs, waiting on thumbnail uploads to each page, and double and triple checking that all listing information is accurate. Even when uploading a few packs of eyes it can be difficult to spot typos or unchecked permission boxes. So I'm fantasizing of a convenient, bulk-inventory editor -- which would cluster a selection of multiple items
  15. As a customer and creator I've struggled with MP's less than intuitive UI. I wish there was an auto-fill,or grouping mechanism for listing, so I wouldn't have to open an individual tab for every item to paste info and wait for thumbnail images to be added -- I'd like to do it all in one fell swoop, and change minor info like the price or permissions (it would be great for gacha resale too). It would also be awesome if, like with other shopping sites, you could include or exclude word-sets and/or categories by ticking a box to get better search results. Sure, you can kind of do that by picking
