  1. Welcome back! I started on SL about 2006-ish and left in 2009. I then returned in 2017 and suffered pretty much exactly what you are feeling now. Nostalgia, tinged with sadness, for all the people and places that were either gone or utterly changed. Then I encountered mesh. And I wasted all my money (I actually managed to find a mesh body that turns out to be only good for some serious demon RPing... how I don't know!). So my first piece of advice is: STOP! Don't spend any more money. Research, research, research (on here especially, lots of old articles giving great instructions on how to find the best bodies etc. Personally I'd recommend either a Signature Gianni or a Belleza Jake to go with that Catwa head, which is the head I use too! The get a full body skin and matching head skin from the same designer i.e. Stray Dog). But first... research. Tips: 1) Go somewhere like the London sim and chat with people there. Usually a mixture of old-timers and newbies (plus a few people like you!) and you may find yourself someone who wants to be friends AND be a personal shopper 2) Go to shopping events (SeraphimSL.com has a daily updated feed of which events have just started with teleport links and galleries of what's on offer) especially male-focussed ones like TMD, Man Cave, Men Monthly and see what range of clothes they have, what ones you like and what body they go with so you can see what body you might want to get. 3) I'm always happy to help if I'm in-world, feel free to message me if you see me about!
  2. I've not suggested making Second Life "properly" VR (i.e. changing things). I like Firestorm VR's approach of simply making VR work WITH Second Life as it exists. Current VR interactivity abilities (both technically and cost-wise) mean there's no way Second Life could "properly" shift to VR etc. It is, however, a really neat additional viewer and it gives unusual perspectives. I've been on Second Life since circa 2006, I've NO wish to put any obstacles in the way of both creative AND personal freedoms which are things I value highly. No subtraction, just addition (for the select few who'd like it).
  3. I lost him to Lego too long ago. I know my place
  4. As I said... "slightly more mainstream" I know it isn't for everyone, or even most, but it has potential for some.
  5. Husband fell in love with his Oculus Quest 2 and ended up buying me one last week so I thought I'd give Second Life in VR a go! Thanks for the instructions on here which did help me clarify a couple of places where I went wrong. It was a fair bit of messing around! Anyway... I'm actually pretty impressed with the results. The controls are... meh. Mixing using the keyboard (whilst blind) with the Quest controllers isn't ideal. This severely limits what you are actually able to do. However this is just a mod project so I'm not complaining, just clarifying this is far, far from perfect before I get on to the next bit... I thought it was amazing. Seeing the house I've worked on for a couple of years now in VR, getting the right height perspective on things and feeling a little like I'm there was worth the effort alone. Walking around the Mainland was fun (for once) and I even saw a firework display that just seemed so much more impressive in VR than I've ever found them in the normal viewer. Finally I popped by TMD and viewing the product offerings from a first person perspective was beautiful. Loved it. It has a long way to go but as a proof of concept I think it has proven beyond a doubt VR CAN work with Second Life and given a bit of work I don't see why this can't become slightly more mainstream within the SL community. Basically... 8/10 would use again.

  8. I use an Aesthetic body, it is by far my favourite and (despite its reputation) there's a lot more individuality possible than Gianni or Jake (though I like them too and have both as I love making avatars!). However can only agree that using the Aesthetic head means you will look like everyone else. If you like it, that is great. However I'd recommend using a different mesh head (I use a Catwa) to try to add some individuality to your avatar. Just my thoughts, do whatever makes you happiest and be the avatar you want to be.

  20. The neck fix for Bento heads is... hmm... but I'm using it anyway to see if it grows on me. Very excited it's moved to auto alpha. Hopefully that'll help pick the clothing market back up again. Otherwise... business as usual.
