  1. Those look like eyelash textures to me. I do not have any Catwa heads but on my Altamura I see the eyelashes doing that when standing in front of other blended alpha textures, such as windows or some foliage. Is the skin on your head native (i.e., it came with the head) or is it a third-party via applier? Sometimes applied skins themselves use blended alphas in the textures and if your skin is one of those, the conflict between eyelash and skin texture would manifest itself like that.
  2. I will refer you to this wiki page: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/ONSR While it basically talks about the ONSR railway, the Linden Winter Sports chalet mentioned in the wiki is the northern terminus of the ONSR rail line. As the article says, there is a large frozen-over lake with plenty of space to freestyle ice skate to your heart's content. You will probably need to supply your own skates and animation HUD as I have not seen any vendors for those products on the grounds.
  3. I am NOT a lawyer in Russia or any other country so take this with a grain of whatever. Find the legal reference in the Russian Federation laws where it states that handwritten internal passports are accepted as valid proof of ID. Perhaps ask someone at the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the law or statute that permits this. Once you have that information, contact Tilia, Inc. and present them with your passport again along with the text of that law that permits it (or at least a link to a web-based source that contains the law from the Ministry itself). Include a note that indicates that form of ID is considered valid in the Russian Federation. Make your case, be persistent, and be as professional as you can while doing so. With enough legal basis Tilia may create an exception for the handwritten internal passports.
  4. While I agree with Rhonda, there are some personality types that feel "unmanly" if they do not have all of the attributes that make them male. I also agree with the general idea of avoiding most of the free/no-charge items as many are just plain old-school prim or sculpty items that can add to the wearer's rendering complexity needlessly. Not to forget that many have scripts which tend to be a bit spammy on local chat or looking for compatible female partner parts via various channels. Having said that there is one product that looks pretty much like other paid-for items. It is severely limited in abilities and cannot be adjusted with any semblence of control while "active." However, if one is looking to "complete" their male avatar, do a search for VSX (from Violet Studios). They offer a freebie unit for human males that is mod enough for size and color.
  5. If one or both of you are on the Mute/Block lists of the other, that would stop messages from being seen. It can be that someone accidentally added the other to the viewer's Mute/Block list. It may also be, if one or both of you are using RLV, that an RLV device has added one of you to its blacklist.
  6. Those all look like mobile graphics processors, probably found in a laptop. I recognize the AMD Radeon 530 as something that Apple might use in an iMac (again, a laptop MB in a larger, less transportable case, IMO). The Intel models you listed all seem to be those found embedded in the CPU themselves. Anything with the Nvidia GPUs might be sufficient. The AMD should also work but given the past history of SL and AMD products, I am betting it will not be as sufficient as the Nvidia counterparts. If at all possible, stay away from the Intel GPUs as your only graphics source. In your decision you should get the most capable GPU with the highest amount of video RAM you can afford, as long as the laptop (assuming it is a laptop) has the ability to allow you to manually switch between the Intel embedded GPU and the Nvidia/AMD discrete unit.
  7. So, please let me see if I understand this. Your inworld name is SOLDIER05, implying you are a battlefield tested character. You got hit with an Orion Combat HUD that left you immoble. Your first response is to file an AR? OK. Might I suggest you understand what the Orion Combat HUD is and does so you can figure out how to defend against it in the future? The listing for it on the Marketplace contains a link to a PDF based manual. https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/ORION-Combat-Utility-HUD/1270525 That being said, just look to see if those white bubbles are an attachment. If so and if you are using RLV, disable RLV in your viewer, relog, detach the bubbles, and carry on.
  8. I believe what you are looking for is already used by two collar scripts that I know of plus a "hugging" HUD that is available inworld. The collar scripts are public domain (Dari Haus; look for her "Big Box of Junk" usually in some adult sims) or opensourced (forgot the license(s)) via the OpenCollar. Both of those collars use non-adult animations, and the initiator sends an invite to the recipient and, if accepted, the recipient is pulled towards the initiator and they hug. It might be worth a look to get either of the collar products and open them up to examine the scripting. The other "hugging" HUD does pretty much the same thing but I cannot remember if the scripts are open or closed. For any of them, no pose balls are rezzed.
  9. According to the Firestorm viewer download page, Mac OS X 10.9 is the oldest operating system that is supported by this viewer. You are running Mac OS X 10.7.5 "Lion", or about two years older than the supported requirement. You either have to upgrade your operating system to at least Mac OS X 10.9 "Mavericks" or find another viewer than can run on that older operating system.
  10. Actually, there are two remaining V1-based viewers that still create those fabulous clouds. Singularity and Cool VL Viewer. And, as retro as they are, the are equally as retro for rendering those clouds only on the region you are in; they will not render them for the surrounding regions.
  11. Technically, while zero balance is a valid number, hence a balance on a ledger sheet, Grumpity and Patch both stated, at various times during the meeting, that if one wanted to avoid the Tilia ToS and they were carrying a US$ balance, they would need to cash it out or convert it back into L$ prior to 1 Aug 2019. Both also stated that if someone logs into their web dashboard on or after 1 Aug 2019 and the Tilia ToS pops up, then they have to make the decision to accept or deny. However, if they do not see it then they do not have to worry about it (until such time they actually create the "wallet" by putting US$ into it). Yes, the nitpickers will pick but it was pretty evident to me that a zero $ balance will not bring forth the ToS.
  12. Freebie Galaxy is still running. Also, the OC AO can still be found at some of the adult places that have not changed since that time. Just note that some of those old primmy attachments will kick your complexity up (still have not understood why that is other than being told "it's based on a formula..."). Be prepared to be told "you look lovely as a jelly doll."
  13. As was stated more or less at the Town Hall meeting yesterday, "no more than $3.00 US." No mention of whether the fee itself would be on a sliding scale or percentage or whatever, just that the maximum fee would be that.
  14. The more I think about this, the more interesting it becomes. In order to fully appreciate the "classic SL" experience of 2006, I suppose I would have to find the operating system(s) and viewers that were current back then. For me that would have been Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger" running on an iBook G4/133. I still have the Tiger discs but I no longer have a PowerPC Mac that can boot up that old OS. As for the viewer, that would have to be the SL craptastic 1.12 (I think?) or the much better Rainbow "Cool SL" Edition from Boy Lane. Assuming the region and grid server software from back then was still available and able to run on the hardware of its time, then I might be able to once again relive that experience. Were all that possible I would then be confronted with alpha textures that remained a solid grey, early sculpts that remained orbs or torii (or whatever other shape some creators used), and assuming I could still manage my way through the builds of those days from memory, I would be doing so at the neck-breaking speed of 3 FPS with graphics settings LOW. Yeah, that would be worth it. P.S. And let me not forget to mention that anytime I dropped a no-copy item and picked it back up to put away in inventory, it would appear outside my inventory root, laughing at me maniacally while I tried every way I knew to be able to move it back into its rightful place. Yep... good times.
  15. That is assuming those seeing the ToS will not just blindly accept it without reading it. Sadly, most in my own family just accept those things without even skimming them because, as they see it, they would not be able to use the service or thing they want to use at that very moment if they did not say "Yes, accept." So they accept it and go on their merry way until some such circumstance comes up that prevents them from using that thing or service in the future. Then another round of "why didn't you tell me this was going to happen" ensues within the family, followed by more eye-rolling, "I told you so's", yada yada yada. Just human nature I suppose.
