  1. What hair is this? I love it (tho I might already have it)
  2. still getting to grips with what sort of windlight works best, as well as fiddling with poses with animare
  3. there's certainly some nice stuff recommended here, though I should've emphasised the thing with the v-tech in that I'd rather not use it because I'm worried about how a flat chested mod looks with an anime head. My biggest fear with the kemono was that it has a tendency to look very childlike, even when I've got sliders jacked up and my character's taller than most. Not that all anime avatars look like that but I have seen that sentiment expressed by a few people. Having the head sit on top of a 'regular' body like the maitreya helps shake off that a little bit. I do want my avatar to look as obviously adult as possible, since I am, and since the face I'm using leans a bit feminine (I mean, it is a female head technically) the worry would be people would see the stylised anime head and the flatter body and assume something was up (and I have zero intention of that sort of stuff). Thanks again though, I may try the v-tech anyway and see how it looks because it's probably my best bet.
  4. Recently bought the Maitreya body but I'm struggling a little bit to find stuff that matches the sort of look I wanna have. I kinda want to keep an androgynous or somewhat genderless look so for the most part revealing clothes are out. Tomboyish I suppose so very few skirts or dresses. I'm also leaning vaguely towards that sort of emo/goth look but only because this sort of look naturally lends itself to that. I know all that is vague but despite that it's still been hard to find anything decent.. maybe I'm not looking in the right spots, so that's why I'm turning to here. The best store that fits all of that is Krankhaus, and their stuff IS really great (I own loads) but I would like to branch out a little. CLBlue is another one I've bought from when I was using a kemono body, just to give a second idea. Mostly looking for clothes, I think I've got a decent variety of hairs and as for skins.. trying to find a skin to match both the head (M4 Venus) and the body (Maitreya) together has been nightmarish. I've found one that fits but I will miss the half dozen or so I had for the head that don't work with this body. Maybe I should just stock up on turtlenecks 🤣 I'm aware of the V-Tech addon and there's some great stuff for it that's the sort of stuff I'd be after but since I'm using an anime head I'd really rather avoid using a flat chested mod. Anime heads can make an avatar look childish even if the rest of it is fairly well proportioned, adding a flat chest to a slightly feminine face makes the problem worse, sadly (it's why I wanted to move away from solely using the kemono). Thanks in advance!
  5. apparently I should've just read the tooltip since I'm the owner that means any group member would have all permissions for any object I share (though Deed there is greyed out so I'm not entirely sure how that works)... which would explain how they were able to easily edit all the stuff. So I was just an idiot to share all that stuff. Thanks everyone for your help, though!
  6. oh, that's interesting! Could they really not change anything about the object? As said, far as I can tell the objects weren't moved, they were physics/phantom enabled. these are the only relevant permissions I can see, and they're all disabled for everyone except officers. There's also the "Always allow 'Create Objects'" role, which I've handed to one or two friends so they could rez stuff without being made an officer, but far as I can tell that wouldn't have an impact either. I'll have to do some tests with my own group just in case there is a setting I've missed. I know for a fact that none of my officers logged in during the time it happened (I mean, there's probably a way to alter the 'last online' thing, but I doubt any of my friends would do that). Plus, they could've done a lot worse.
  7. Thank you, this is probably what I should've done to start, though I'd rather a way that meant that only items I'd specifically marked to share could be edited by the people I'm working on this with. (Not because I don't trust them, just in case something accidentally happens). What would be the best way to do this? Just make a new group and manually change all the items on the land to be set to that group instead? Since as I said earlier this is something I'm working on with others, not all the objects are owned by me, and there's a few placed by people who don't regularly log on. Thank you both again for your replies.
  8. I don't know if this is the right place to ask or if anyone can even help with this, but I'm trying anyway. I'm renting a little parcel of land on a sim, and I've got a skybox on it. I logged in today to find various items missing - random items, unlinked to each other, from a wall to a bench to some objects my friends had placed. They'd all had physics and phantom enabled and tumbled down to the floor of the sim. All of these objects had 'Share' to group enabled. It seems like someone had joined our group (its public and free to join) and enabled physics etc. There is a permission in group permissions that says "Manipulate (move, copy, modify) group-owned objects", which is enabled only for the owner (myself) and officers (all my friends). The default user role has NO permissions outside of joining the group chat and setting home on group land. None of them have been online today, and I trust them not to do stupid crap. So it would seem that someone malicious joined the group, enabled physics on everything they could, and then left. So does the 'Share' tag on an object allow ANY member of a group to edit an object, even if the only relevant permission is disabled? I'm guessing it's not someone who cheated themselves into being an officer since they could have done a LOT worse than just mess with a few items. Is there any way to make it so that ONLY officers can do anything to shared objects, or do I need to make another friend-only group or something?
  9. proud of how these turned out, but i cant decide on which look I prefer!
  10. see title basically. Sometimes, after changing regions or whatever, my avatar and her clothes will look kinda 'twisted', like someones turned them into rope and twisted it. Basically as if you were looking at her from far away so level of detail is low, but I'm looking right at her. Only way that seems to fix it is to take off and re-add all of what I'm wearing, mesh body and all, but it's a bit of a hassle to have to do that every time and worse when I'm working on the avatar and sometimes forget what I had attached. Could anyone explain A) why this happens and B) if anything can be done to fix it?
  11. I'm relatively new to second life and I still use the in-world search for the overwhelming majority of my shopping or whatever. A lot of keywords I use now return only a handful or no results at all. For any new user, the primary way they're gonna look for new places is to click the magnifying glass button on the default browser, which takes them directly to this search which is currently broken. This ruins the 'new user experience' which is why I'm surprised LL isn't sitting upright and paying attention.
  12. the head that comes with the body.. what is it? A lot of skins for the body on the marketplace seem to require one of the M3/Venus M3 heads (which I don't have) and I'm scared to purchase one in case it doesn't work with the avatar 2.0 head. also, does anyone have any experience with making an av with the avatar 2.0 body that isn't dangerously child-like or like it escaped from a strip club? I imagine the avatar 2.0 isn't liked in this forum for that reason - which I understand! - but it was way cheaper than some of the other ones :-( .. A lot of the clothes fall into either flat chested ~kawaii~ or full on bdsm gear almost. My goal for the avatar is to get an androgynous (female-aligned, mind - not too into the 'femboy' stuff) look that I could take into non-anime sims and not look too uncomfortably out of place. Hell, if anyone who doesnt like or use the body wants to say what they dont like about people who normally have it that I could try and avoid, that would help. thanks in advance!
  13. also would like to post a screenshot of what I have so far and extend a thank-you to everyone who's replied so far, definitely been huge helps! Not sold on the hair yet (its a demo I cropped it out) but I think I'm getting the hang of this now!
  14. not in the default viewer! I guess I should download a third party viewer
  15. I guess I also have to ask, besides the however-much the head costs, how much might I be looking at in total in extras? IF I, say, spring for one of Catwa's bento heads (which look pretty good!) then thats 5k already, not including anything I might want on top of that like skins, eyes, clothes and so on. Can anyone suggest a reasonable budget? Not looking to become a supermodel here, just unique!
