  1. Also Addictive Personality Disorder is a real thing it's in the DSM
  2. That and I am gonna be honest with you, I see more people glorifying weed smoking, than I do see people glorifying cigarette smoking.
  3. I feel like on top of better mesh optimization on the creator. That the same principles be applied to textures and scripts. I mean unoptimized scripts and textures can also effect the lag issue as well.
  4. I mean it would be better to take accountability, I realize addicts say that they don't have a problem. But usually those problems stem from other problems, and until they hit rock bottom usually. They won't recognize they have problems. That all being said, most of my addictions. And I have been clean from 2 of them for 7 years, stemmed from me hiding and self medicating during an abusive relationship. But when it comes to smoking, I started as I couldn't stand the effects ritalin had on me. So I picked up cigarettes when I was 19. I have since stopped and went to vaping, and I am loving it. As it is helping my concentration.
  5. They did this, as they didn't want to spend the litigation costs that it would cost if countries decided to sue actually sued the Lab.
  6. I mean I don't think media influenced most of us to smoke, I think it is the combination of seeing our parents smoking and having to contend with second hand smoke, that attributed to the addiction. That and Asthma.
  7. Do you have proof that it is asset store purchases retextured or you just blatantly and wrongly accusing something with no evidence to back it? Also no one is being tricked to spend more money, I mean we do have brains of our own and well we can decide what we want and don't want. You have been making baseless claim, borderlining character attacks and this needs to stop. Unless you have the proof that this system is the same and not going about making baseless claims. I think you need to stop slandering.
  8. The data you are talking about is all legal data, based on lootboxes and gacha systems. I have not seen an article on the conveyor system. The EU was cracking down on Lootbox and Gacha system in video games, as it was promoting early age gambling. Conveyor systems don't promote that, they promote direct purchase in a very convoluted sales mechanism.
  9. That is not chance, basically you pay for said item you see there or you don't. If your item doesn't come up you don't pay for it. It's not like gacha at all, where you would have to pull time and time again until you got what you wanted. Now if you see the object you want, you pay for it. And then the machine randomly changes the next item available for purchase. So yeah you are wrong, there is no ethical issue here. It's more of an annoying system, if you ask me. If I can't buy what I want, right away and have to wait for a bit for it to pop up. Why buy into it at all?
  10. But that is the thing, you are wrong. Conveyor systems are not like Gachas at all, they are literally two different systems. One is a convoluted sales mechanism the other like a slot machine. Gacha is literally a slot machine all these conveyor systems are convoluted sales mechanisms.
  11. What scientific data, you just shared YouTube videos and links that have nothing to do with this system. With Lootboxes it's like getting a birthday gift, whereas gachas is basically a slot machine. You have not provided any data for the conveyor system. Which at large is literally just an overconvoluted sales mechanism.
  12. I honestly give up with you. There is no gambling whatsoever with that machine. You buy what you see, and if it isn't what you want. You wait for your item to pop up. It's pretty simple really. But as I said I am done, I feel like you are just wanting to get rid of it, not for reasons you state. But you just don't like the system. I would call you a Karen. I don't like it, but I am not gonna selfishly make a stink about how we should get rid of it.
  13. I mean I wouldn't want to waste my money to get a loaf of bread. Lol
  14. I mean yeah addictions exist and I feel bad for these people going through it. But an addiction is usually a way to escape reality, and then they just can't stop what they are doing.
  15. No one is forcing you to play, so I don't see why you think it is predatory. I mean it would be predatory, if you were forced to play. But you still have a choice whether to buy from the system or not. So I don't see it as gaming the public. I feel like you have some very extremist views to stuff like this.
  16. I think this is just a weird, radical get rid of it all kinda post. There is really no substance to what she is saying and as you said. She has not given any rhyme or reason as to why they should get rid of it. The only thing she goes on about, is videos about lootboxes and that it's gamblign. And we have explained to her time and time again, that there is no elements of chance in these games.
  17. That is up to the owner of said conveyor or even of the old gacha system to tell people to play responsibly.
  18. The item that is revealed is the one you're receiving. That is the conveyor system, basically what you see is what you get.
  19. There is no game of chance involved in these conveyor system. For it to be considered gambling, by law it has to be defined as a game of chance. That being said, these new systems are just an over convoluted sales mechanism.
  20. I get no rush from gambling either, I actually got more of a rush from the soft drink lounge in the casino than the actual machines and tables itself. Lol
  21. With her logic, we might as well ban everything that we as humans can get addicted to.
  22. From a legal standpoint, Gambling is a game of chance. Meaning that since we know what we are buying, that takes away the game of chance aspect that gachas used. And we don't use neurological or mental issues to determine laws. With your logic, they should get rid of all the stores in SL and get rid of MP. As shopping gives the same boost of dopamine that gambling does in people's brains.
  23. We get that you don't like it, but as of now. That is not gambling, there is no mystery to what item you are gonna get. What you at that moment is what you are gonna get. I think I already explained it well using my shirt example. You see brown shirt, you buy brown shirt. Now put it into a machine, and add a randomizer, so after a certain amount of time the item changes to another randomly picked one in the set. But you still see the item you are buying. It's just a more complex normal sales machine. I don't like the system either, but I don't see it as much as gambling as gacha.
  24. What these new systems are are a sales gimmick. I will give you an example, you want to buy a shirt from a store and well you don't need to buy the FP. So you buy that one shirt. Basically this conveyor system, is that with a randomizer and rares and commons. So they basically just added more complexity to a sales system, we have used for over a decade. That is literally all it is. I mean with the time they took to create this, they could have put all that creative energy into normal sales items, and got the same amount of money back. But no, they make work arounds and act like if they don't have it. That it will be a great depression in SL, similar to that of the 1930s.
