  1. Yay you're back! I loved your old episodes, and look forward to seeing what you've been discovering in SL.
  2. Agree...it's very much a child's game and unlikely to compete in the same market as SL. I pop in sometimes with my young one so we can run about together. It's full of rugrats.
  3. I feel your pain, as I loved building with prims, and it's what attracted me to SL initially. It's a great way to get a feel of spaces; being and building in the same realm. Then like many others, I migrated to mesh. It's good, and bad, and yes has changed our 'social/class structure' in SL, not always for the best. One suggestion, and this is something I do occasionally if ever building something bigger- Create your building in SL with prims, just the general blocks, to get a sense of space. Walk about in it and enjoy that process. Then transpose those measurements into the 3D program yo
  4. As a customer and creator, I vote for mod mesh all the time. All the fears of what could happen if I made my work moddable have never happened, not in 8 years of designing and selling in SL. My work has never been undermined by being tinted a gross hue. It's never been ripped because of mod permissions. I never lost sales of multiple colours because of moddability. I'm pretty confident that leaving mod perms open increases the value of things enormously. The worst thing that ever happened? Several times a customer tried to mod something, screwed it up, and needed a replacement (back in the p
  5. That could cause the same degree of drama as daring to suggest script limits on a parcel. Those who don't care about polygon count simply don't care about polygon count. Nor do they probably care about how they appear to others, as long as they look fabulous on their own screens and in their own photos on Flickr. We have seen in the past what happens when there is an attempt to educate those who use a lot of resources in SL: there will be blaming of everything from others' graphics cards to their 'nanny-state attitude' to their sad old computers to their imperfect methods of measuring. I don
  6. Alts are very useful tools, and I've never found they caused drama. I use one as a camera. My main account can then model for vendor photos, and adjust the scene, etc, while my alt sits on a box (so she can't move) and sets up the best photograph. This way, I can keep a consistent camera angle between shots, and my main has the freedom to keep making adjustments knowing the camera won't be thrown off. I think for every dodgy way to use an alt, there are 100 good reasons to use them.
  7. There was a 'scarf' going round a few years back that caused the wearer to share an intimate moment with Mudkips. Is that the sort of thing you mean?
  8. *coughs* There may be a small one hidden on my land, even. So I'm guilty of this very thing. It's there because of the "why not" factor, and because I was playing about with pretty rotating projected lighting one day, and voila! there was suddenly a small club. It's a nice way to spend time while doing my SL business inworld if my presence isn't actually needed. I could be writing notecards, imming with people, working in blender, and the whole time my avvy can be bopping away to parcel music and enjoying herself while her typist does all the chores. It's funner than standing afk in a field,
  9. I quite like noobies, and try to help if I'm feeling nice, but when they fire off a question and I start to type and then they ask the next then the next and never wait for an answer...I give up. It's the patience thing. I'm totally over this conversation though- Noob:How do I make money in this place? Me:Learn how to provide a product or service, and sell that. Noob:No too hard I just want money where do I get it Me: Use your credit card and buy lindens Noob: No way i aint spendiong money on some stupid game. Give me a job. Me: What can you do? Noob:Everything I can do everything.
  10. Clean hair.....keeping the fingernails tidy.......oh, and a nice smile!
  11. It looks like Flickrs ToS allows its users to retain ownership of their images, which is good news for its huge SL community. This is a great example of how, even if something is strictly legal, it doesn't make it right. Sounds like this bloke already has no respect within artistic circles for pulling stunts like this over the years. Happily, I'd never heard of him before this. Sometimes, people present art that pushes the envelope, and ignites debate over "what is art, and what is creativity" etc, and this can help broaden our understanding. It's been happening since the dawn of ages, and i
  12. I would love to see a set in honour of Terry Pratchett. Vetinari. Vimes. Colon. Ridcully. Luggage. Weatherwax. Eternally Surprised. Death. Ogg. Pulsiver. Igor. And just all of them. The list never ends. Wasn't Cake already one, years ago, or am I misremembering Soup?
  13. Next time, before you get the turtle's head, just crack out the credit card......k? Your mum will thank you for it.
  14. Thankyou, Ivan. That's a lovely gesture
