  1. it depends on what are the specific objects. if you have two standard boxes with one wood texture and LOD - then 2 prims are probably going to become 1. if it's a more complex build with various textures, alphas, weight and soecular maps then the prim count will probably be the same as singular objects separated.
  2. you score as: optimal nerd. you can use your 'optimal nerd' card with 'responsible tech employee' to boost your level and gain skill in software testing on serious side, sl hated me on a 2005/2008 pc most - others were consistent in smoth performance without advanced lighting (that's gpu's responsibility) and performance gains happened with internet changes. australia and uk both suffer from old infrastructures and fibre optics just became affordable. for more sl on ultra - that's mostly on your machine's cpu / gpu and memory mix plus how you set it up. lindens are like any front end support staff so they'd test things on more standard machine like Monty has. my sl been crap 2 years ago due to nightmare of an adsl, it stopped lagging that much on fibreoptic one. machine wise - didn't change for over 6 years for me despite different rigs being updated . the priority is always to make things work for majority of users.
  3. was the error on all water settings? firestorm likes to reset to some horror blacl pixel stream as water texture when you change windlight settings. usually picking another one (i favour nacon pond water) gets rid of that but it certainly can be also a cache issue. if in doubt - switch to default windlight settings, clean cache, relog, change to the ones you use normally.
  4. had to double check the 'nickname' of processor 100 times and it did not stop being funny - i never seen those (my laptop apparently has 'kaby' which is not as amusing). sl is finicky and cosmetics won't change if your gpu can load ultra and not burn your town - upgrades can make top notch settings synced faster but it still is partially internet related. black dragon is most flexible when it comes to gpu while firestorm and alchemy are meant to be more balanced. it's all just blind luck really. i guess, i'll tell you op as i just got this processor and mainboard but that'll take a while as rewriting windows 7 ultimate 64 bit installer lol. same as linked tester above - have it with gtx 1080 (not ti) but 2666 mhz ddr4 ram (32gb). wouldn't really recommend it this set up for sl as it really needs proper cooling - wouldn't do much for it (i think, as usb 3.0 drivers keep me awake tonight) and would be wasting money. it'd be useful if you do mesh work though. otherwise, i'd stick with previous i7, 1050 or 1060 gtx, asus or gigabyte mainboard that's newish and fast 16gb ram (over 2mhz but look at mainboard recommendations). can't say anything on amd as never worked with their hardware which is embarassing enough. (still laughing at coffee thing) ps. didn't read whole thread but might be useful to those making purchase decisions: ps 2. poster above is right on i7 being overdue an upgrade, same as amd's models but part market got inflated with ethereum resellers so if you can pull through that - wait. my main rendering pc died, otherwise would not bother and my first gen i7 lasted 4 years without any performance loss (short, i know - it died with motherboard and it's a total tech murder mystery. going to have old pc researched by people as same strange errors resulting in component deadness plagued me and others in october / november).
  5. bento shapes are best learned with fiddling and making your own ... same as photoshop. plenty of tutorial's on youtube and sure, sucks to organise all but there's forums like reddit ones and here's for example. in case you want to look at sl blogs there's and both of which have photo taking tutorials. otherwise - update ur graphic drivers, use alternate viewers that are graphic intense (if you can) like black dragon or firestorm (it lags for me). set them up with tools like nvidia inspector or equivalent to get best results. does explanations for her photos which she does with reshade network which works with every viewer: as for marketing - for blogs look at seo positioning which is usually editing your posts and website to add keywords that place you atop of google rankings. repost all your website posts on flickr (and all sl groups - for best ones, look up individual photographers you fancy and their photo info which includes groups placed), plurk, fb, twitter and tumblr with sl and theme tags. if you want to cover events, track them and be atop of updates with sites similar to . if you want to see how others edit stuff or work on their photos or sets - again, youtube is awesome and plenty slers showing crearive process like this one here: (can't link youtube on phone so have her blog). also ... don't pay for such schools as they usually only get you contacts at best while teaching you photoshop basics, placing props, making poses (again - i advice fiddling with tools such as ), chosing aos, hitting right shops to app to or for promo items (there's flickr groups for sl blogger search like this one: ), making websites (blogspot, wordpress, dreamwidth and tumblr would be best for initial one - have lots of themes you can use) and just oozing confidence. posting this as used to work for one of first schools like that (nah, not good at any of topics above or seen anyone be a pro at first - it's all just case of wanting and fiddling on ur own; worked in marketing so yeaaaaa). they're grand if ya don't have time and learn best with direct guidance or in groups but wouldn't be worth it for last 5k per month tops if that's ur thing. sorry to but in op but ... smells like a scam with website down and no price tag or concrete skills so kinda went essay here (can't blame you for working for someone or if you do detailed promo one day).
  6. Romanian Language Lessons

    i feel u. had to learn polish and i want my life back ... (or brain). no idea where to learn romanian (or any slavic slash iberic language mixes) but can tell what helped me - subtitled films and equivalent of simplified english books plus pictorial magazines. probably would be best to go looking into language courses at local colleges as yeah i get ya on needing systematic stuff. still practice with native speakers or similar like poster above offered - best to be put in foreign situations where you need to talk your way out of.
  7. Girl be a gay guy on SL

    all of that. i kinda suspect op is doing some uni survey work or lurking but yeah ... good advice to them all or others. my mum's straight (i know internet, what to do now!?) and i used to be semi-known gay activist (wish that's been bragging but nah - got involved with political parties ... wasn't nice so don't do that op! unless green party or similar ... ). we once had to see a leading psychiatrist in our city to get random document and he so had a field day on us - criticised mum for looking 'butch' (she's not even close in presentation ... also was alwas hetero and identifies as such) while i got slack for long hair. yea ... my hair had been short then. currently past shoulders, lol ... not due to dude but just me liking long hair. point is - u can rock anything irl or isl. would say it's best to be yourself ooc so if you feel uncertain of sexuality or gender then just be accountable to yourself and give no *****s. yea, irl local politics and safety come into play but if you wanna test waters isl, it's best place. hell, don't listen to anyone in this thread or me - if you feel totally ungay or unbloke and it's just a rp thing ... more power to you and if that changes ... or stays the same - stay safe, have fun and stop stressing. (doesn't apply to those in bigoted areas or with *****ey fam you're dependent of)
  8. Ever squatted inworld?

    didn't rent or own place from 2006 to 2009 and loitered in my group's fav shops. life happened, came back in 2013 and crowned myself the king of hobos. eh, not really but found a sim with permissions and no owner present ... ever. still going there sometimes if needing to test something. kinda freeloaded on husband who had a series of weird houses but then we got our own parcel. if ya need private space to rezz a thing or two - search map for empty places. also land sales sometimes have permissions ticked.
  9. My bad drawings of my worse avatars

    that thread is totally brilliant. love how you mix free and cheaper items to create an interesting chara and then show them all drawn. it's a good practice and fun to watch.
  10. Small hands?

    could be something somewhere being updated as this somehow makes all my avis have sticks for legs, tiny feet and short arms with small hands. no shape changes or stuff on my side - happened to me few times after bento update. nothing on me auto-updates, so dunno but wait a day and see if people still run around with oddly proportioned bodies. oherwise, yep, seen plenty and lemme tell ya that booties are out and slenderman shapes are so in.

    "All the mum's already tried it - the definitive gender test. Helps your child reach the true gender potential and detects any abnormalities. Try it and get a free package of gendered school items for your child!" Afraid I been wrong on the weird depths as it is still used in psychology to spot personality disorders and just one of the elements is gender conformation and consistency. It is MMPI - current version is MMPI 2 RF (revised second edition). Back on topic ... how's the doctoring going, author? And yes, please give us the questions.

    losers. i'm the best dude here because i always tip my nail lady! it's my mum. there was this one weird test in the depths of internet that guessed fairly accurately but the questions were mostly checking your consistency so if you can pass or not lol.
  13. females with mama allpa or deciduen read this NOW

    i also want to see that list as i love tests ... people who like tests are great at responding the expected answers unless it has other means of testing honesty. probably is one of those iq ones with spatial questions and linguistic ones - some scientist once said men do better at orientation while women do languages better. otherwise ... can't make better puns than those above me .
  14. District 18 [Roleplay Community]

    sounds absurdly interesting to me as i love dystopias :D, gonna check that out when free!
  15. Girl be a gay guy on SL

    i also know plenty people always in rp mode and just not mentioning their own lives so just put a note about it in your profile. kinda need to add one important thing - if you're gay, you're gay and family guy probably is not going to change that . not that you have to have anything set in stone as stuff changes, sexuality's fluid and what not but saying 'you wish you were a gay guy' sounds ... yep ... gay. never heard of those anime you watched but will check them out but lol, kids still get dragged into gayness by yaoi ... aw. school friend shown me gravitation, now i'm married to a dude. strangely, the only gay club that's been active i found under 'yaoi' tag in sl and has plenty of people behind various dudey avatars - it changes names and sims often but kinda always is under this search term. flickr has sl gay groups as well - some are sfw, most aren't but you could take a look at sims mentioned or rps.
