  1. You guys aren't going to let this thread die, are you?

    That would make Rocky really sad, and look at that adorable face! You wouldn't want to make him sad, right?

  2. Hey all! A feature I've recently noticed in my FS client has been that when underwater, sounds played by objects, avatars, and gestures are heavily muffled and only audible at a very close distance. While this is a cool feature for realism, it makes my little wearable object that makes nice bubbling sounds when I swim kinda useless! I'd like to know where in Settings to go to disable this feature when I'd like to. Cheers!

    @Axel - at the moment I am a premium member but I plan to relinquish this when the term is up. I'm not going to take the trouble to report this since I don't know the person and I've only been in the vicinity en passant whilst sailing. I was just surprised to find that a person can choose any old vulgar or offensive display name with the standard that LL purports to uphold without it being either disallowed by LL or challenged by others who come into contact with this person on a regular basis. This post was mainly posted through my curiosity. Thank you all for replying :)

    Out of curiosity, was their name in plain text or were they using fancy symbols at all? I remember once I tried to have the DN "Lucky Gamble" for an RP character but the change refused to go through because of the word "gamble." So I always assumed there was at least a basic lexicon of disallowed words. ūüėģ

  4. I love the TWI deer so much! It makes for a great "traditional" unicorn.

    The animations for it are some of the cleanest and smoothest I've ever seen in SL. Rand really outdid himself with it. Makes me all the more excited to see what he's got up his sleeve next. :D

  5. Who here's got a wild side in SL? Lets show some love to the incredible content creators who have brought us these boundary-breaking feral avatars and the people who have made them their own! TWI, BRDMRT, Teegle, Grendel's, NutBusterz, Prehistorica, Medhue, iMonster...whichever brand you're repping, come and show off and tell the virtual world why you love being on four feet. [Or two. I'm not excluding birdfolk n such here! :P ]

    My personal main avatar is the European Dragon by iMonster aka Tithis String. It's a great enough av out of the box, but the 3rd-party aftermarket that's sprung up around it really makes it shine. You can turn it into any dragon, drake, or wyvern you can think of nowadays! The community that has grown around this avatar is also a total delight. There's no better fun than running and flying around in a gaggle of beautifully diverse dragons and roaring your head off! [Really helps blow off steam. :D ]

    Dragons have long been my favorite creature despite their fictional nature, and ever since I was a kid I've wanted a video game that really let you play as one. None of the "dragon rider" or "dragon slayer" stuff that was so prevalent in games. I got started in SL for totally different reasons, but the moment I stumbled upon the Uthgolian Dragons by Grendel's Children I was hooked. Furry avs are cool enough, but what do mean I can be an animal in this game? What do you mean I can be a flippin' dragon?? That was it. I was on the Grid for good!

    I've been collecting feral avatars now since, well...since I joined SL, really! My inventory is full of critters. There's no greater joy for me than showing up in a more "usual" sim as a dragon, or horse, or wolf, or dinosaur and awing the facelights right off folks who didn't even know nonhuman avs were a thing. Soaring around Blake Sea roaring at passing planes and boats makes for a very amusing weekend.

    I'd be happy to show off more of my menagerie of avatars, but this isn't about me. It's about you!

    Tell me your animal avatar stories, people of the Grid!

    Specilars in materials are now just UGLY....I love the new EEP in general where everything is looking much crisper and far more reactive to day and night cycles, but it has totally screwed up speculars. both Avatars and objects look horrible and like nasty cheap wet plastic.

    I feel this needs to be prioritised as an issue as people spend a lot of money on avatars and builds and to see things ruined is not only sould destroying but actually puts you off from using Second Life.... nobody wants to use Ugly software

    This is my biggest issue right now. My dragon avatar used to have vibrant, sharp, colorful speculars on its scales. But with the FS EEP Beta he looks like a dull plastic toy. I haven't uploaded any recent shots to Flickr cause he just looks so poorly.

    I think earlier in the thread this has already been mentioned, and someone said it was not only filed on JIRA but also already fixed in a more recent main viewer beta. So us FS folks just gotta wait til it rolls out to us, hopefully.
