  1. Oh, that's a shame - I thought I'd just discovered something new! 😊
  2. Forgive me if this has already been mentioned, but I've just noticed what seems to be a new area of land in the far north east, (around 98, 220, 42 on the grid), east of Muenster. I couldn't TP there, but from what I can see on the map, it looks a bit different to Bellisseria. Looks like the Moles are busy up there...
  3. Explored Vieux Colmar on my flying horse...🐴 😁
  4. Just like in RL, when holding a conversation with someone body language can also be a factor. I met a guy in SL the other day, and his conversation was okay - but his animation made me feel really intimidated. All the while we were talking he kept pacing round me with his head tilted to one side, eyeing me up and down. It felt a lot like I had met a hungry wolf who was about to devour me, but before he pounced was just taking a moment to size me up to work out the best angle of attack! When the guy asked if I wanted to hang out with him, I quickly made my excuses and left! 😨
  5. I know - I'm an idiot! 🙄 After I posted that comment about there being no demos available, I went back to the store and realised that one of those tiny little bottles is indeed a demo! Maybe I should get some new eyes to go with my new head... 😊
  6. I thought I was safer choosing the skin from the same maker as the head (Genius Lab), but unfortunately they don't do skin demos, so you just have to pick one and hope for the best! It's all looking okay now, I've got the head and body to be a pretty good match, and the neck seam is hardly visible. I think I've got everything to look as good as it's going to, so I'm going to leave it at that!
  7. I did try lots of demos before settling on the head I got, and although it's been a pain to get it all set up I am very happy with the way it looks now. 😊 I know a lot of people have several mesh bodies and heads that they switch between, but I think I'm just going to stick with one head and body - I don't want to go through all that stress again!
  8. Thanks a lot, that seems to have done the trick! 😄 I had been happily using the Redux body for a few weeks, but I got a new head today (which has been a nightmare to set up!), and I had to get new skin appliers for my body to match the skin on my head, and the new skin appliers won't work on the Redux body, only on the normal Slink one, so I've had to go back to that just so my head and body match. So now I've got to re-do all my outfits, because a lot of the clothes I was wearing on my Redux body don't work on the Slink one... 😡
  9. Hi everyone, I've had a Slink Physique body for a while now, and I'd got to grips with the auto alpha mini hud feature, which remembers which alpha cuts to use with different clothing items. But this feature has suddenly stopped working properly for me - instead of the mini hud remembering the alpha cuts I want to use, e.g. pelvis and legs for a pair of jeans - it also alphas out part of the rest of my body as well! Is anyone else having this problem, or does anyone know how I can fix it? Thanks!
  10. Panic over - I got rid of the hole. I was really looking forward to getting a new head, but I've been fiddling with this for hours now, and it's been quite stressful! I'm starting to think my old system head didn't look so bad after all...
  11. I did try the demo for the head, but it only came with one very dark skin tone, and there wasn't a demo available for the skins. I've just found a neck fix thing, and that does look better now - but I've just noticed another problem! There's a hole under the jaw! AAARGH!!
  12. Okay, so I've got the skin applier working now - I went for the skin tone 'milk'. And I also bought the Genius Lab skin applier for my Slink body, and of course selected the colour 'milk' to get a good match. But I've got a horrible neck seam, and the skin on my head doesn't seem to match my body, even though I've used the same skin colour for both. I know you can never get rid of the neck seam altogether, but I thought if I went for the same skin tone on head and body it wouldn't be THAT visible. Any advice, anyone?
  13. Cancel that cry for help - I don't know what I've just done, but the skin seems to be working now - phew!!
  14. Hi everyone, I'm still fairly new to SL, and I've just bought a new head from Genesis Lab. The notecard that came with it said I needed to buy the Omega System Kit for Genesis, so I got that and installed it. Then I bought a Genesis Lab skin for the head - but no matter what I do, the skin won't appear on the head! I've tried everything, and I'm at my wits end now - can anyone please help!! (Please keep any explanations of what I'm doing wrong in very simple terms that a noob will understand - thanks!!)
  15. Thanks everyone for your replies - I've got it sorted now. I just created a new deck to lay over the top of the existing one, and changed it to the white wood texture that I wanted. I knew there must be a way to do it, because the neighbouring houseboat has a white deck, and I wanted mine the same. It looks great now! 😃
  16. Yes, I've already changed the textures for the houseboat using the control panel by the door. The textures in the pack look a bit different to the ones on the control panel - there is a white one for the deck that I wanted to use. The white texture on the control panel looks grey, whereas the one in the texture pack actually looks white. But I can't see how to apply the white texture from the texture pack to the deck - the only way I seem to be able to change the deck texture is via the control panel. I tried right clicking on the deck to see if I could edit the texture that way, but it wo
  17. Hi everyone, I've been lucky enough to get a new houseboat today - yay, I'm so happy!! 😄 I've changed some of the colours and textures of the houseboat via the redecorate option on the control panel. However, the houseboat also comes with a Content Creation pack that includes an additional texture pack. Being still something of a newbie, I don't know how to use the texture pack to change the appearance of the decking etc. Could anyone explain to me (in very simple terms!) how to use the textures in the texture pack? Thanks!
  18. Thanks for all the replies. I've been experimenting over the last couple of days, and have managed to put quite a few outfits together for my new body by following everyone's advice and layering mesh clothes over applier ones - like a mesh jacket over an applier top, or a long mesh sweater and mesh knee boots over applier jeans. And yes, I have spent quite a lot of money on new clothes in the process! 🤯 It's been worth it though, and it's wonderful being able to wear nice shoes now - the one thing I hated about my classic avi was the horrible feet, and having to wear boots all the time to
  19. Thanks, that's really helpful - I had seen the redux body in the Slink folder, but I didn't understand what it was! The redux one seems much easier to use than the original Slink body, and it's great that I can now use the alpha layers that come with clothes, rather than having to fiddle about with alpha cuts.
  20. Thanks both of you for your answers. I never had any problems layering clothes with my classic avatar, so I didn't expect to have the problem with my new body! I guess if I want to wear layers, I'll just have to wear my old body.
  21. Hi everyone, I'm fairly new to SL, and I've just bought a new Slink body, but I find that if I try to layer clothes (e.g. a long sweater over jeans) bits of the jeans poke through the sweater. Is there something I'm doing wrong? If there is, please explain to me in simple terms that a noob will understand! Thanks. :)
