  1. I played around with the EEP project viewer several times over the past one and a half years and have to say I have been looking forward to it making it into the mainstream as the pros of it far outweigh the cons. Yes some items well look strange because the creator had used material settings that under the new system have far too much reflections on them - that's not a problem with EEP though really. Many designers joined on materials bandwagon without really understanding what the impacts of those settings actually mean under various lighting conditions - a good many avatars in SL look very plastic so I guess a lot of end users just whack up the settings without knowing what it means because they do not even have advanced lighting enabled. EEP is as big a change (if not more so) than windlight was - and there were loads of people who foresaw the demise of the world due to windlight 😀 What I would encourage though is for changes like these for people to actually download the project viewers whilst it is still a project viewer and test.
  2. Like Alwin said it changes automagically (and has here) - in world you can see some references to your old name still though. I found that on redelivery things (web based) which I guess do not update the avatar name to uuid very often or it is just some SL scripting thing. In any event all references to your old name should vanish within 24 hours.
  3. They do this on the mistaken belief that this prevents people from making illegal copies of them. if you go to a sandbox that has no scripts then you can get around the inability to Rez the item.
  4. I was my RL name here in SL for a number of years as I did "work" things - ok it had the Resident bit tacked on to the end but that's why we got display names. I changed it to Jon Nova, which is very similar to my RL name but I didn't really get on with it so I changed it again - yep fool and money easily parted. I went for an alliterate name on purpose as it sounds better and the name itself will (hopefully) fit in well to some medieval fantasy RP.
  5. You need to use whatever alpha applier hud works with your body to hide the bits of the body they poke through. Would have looked the same even without a BOM skin as bits of the body mesh poke through.
  6. Works for me on MacOS and Safari Oops never mind - I see this is not about the dark mode theme but instead about a dark mode extension to Chrome
  7. This is as bare faced as I get - I aint plucking my eyebrows or eyelashes.
  8. As with all "inspired by" theme role-play make sure you read up on the http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Intellectual_Property as several RP themed places have fallen foul of them in the past and vanished.
  9. My first goal in SL was to get rich - that did not last long as I don't have the creative spark. My second goal in SL was to stick to a monthly budget in buying L$ - that worked pretty well until mesh arrived on the scene. My third goal in SL is my current one - to get out and about when I am trapped in my home thanks to this ongoing pandemic and also a wonky leg that makes walking for a period of time painful. Explore the great designs of buildings and landscapes. Chat with the small circle of friends. Sail the open seas. Stay well away from any hint of romantic entanglements.
  10. True love in SL is rarer than true love in RL. If you really want that sort of connection you need to head on outside (when allowed) and hit the dating places.
  11. My opinion on this long running saga is to simply assume that everyone has at least one alt and they get up to all sorts of stuff with them. I don't care and I don't ask either. If anyone is really concerned then they just need to ask "Do you have any alts" if they don't like the reply (which may vary from "Mind your own business" to "Of course") then that's their problem - not the person with the alts. If someone assumes that another person has alts but has not asked them and wants to find out if they have alts then ask them! Don't become that crazy person.
  12. No - mesh skins are sold by designers for the brand of body and then brand of head - make sure you buy both from the same designer in the same skin tone.
  13. I do remember a while back someone selling a distorted sculpt or mesh invisible prim thing that was claimed to make what you were wearing impossible to inspect - all it really did was lag out everyone around you.
  14. Jobs that pay good in SL honestly do not really exist - there is no quick path to riches. Content creators can make a lot of money but they need to have design skills, vision and money to start with. DJ's need to have a great selection of music, good stream capacity, outgoing personality and be able to work the hours needed to get their name known - often for very few tips at the start. Hosts need to work damn hard promoting the venue without stepping over the line of becoming a spammer. They need to keep the crowd active and not let it drift off into afk. Again often for very few tips. Dancers - basically same as host but even less tippage and they have to have the looks. Honestly the best thing to do is to get yourself a "starting fund" by purchasing some L$ in order to get a good look - then you will be able to seek work if you want to but take it from one who has been down the road of working in SL - once your SL becomes work it stops being fun and you lose freedom.
  15. Open "find" in your SL Viewer Select the tab for "Land Sales" Ensure it is set for "Mainland Sales" the price has 0 in it and the area has 512 Then you can sort by price, price per meter, select the rating of the land you want (important if you want to do or Rez certain things). Be aware that land is currently at a premium as LL have not added any new sims are a while due to the ongoing situation. Currently the lowest priced 512 sq m plot of land is 75,000 L$ and that's a fortune for such a small amount! Another option is to go for land auctions https://places.secondlife.com/auctions#0 and is probably the cheapest way to get land at the moment though you of course have to bid and hope nobody bids higher.
