  1. Well Jennifur Im a pretty uncomplicated sort of guy and all Im asking for are a few polygons, and a few decent triangles - have you tried getting a prim to turn into an equilateral triangle a pretty basic shape ? Its okay if your maths is good but youre pretty much restricted to a 10 metre unless you fit them together...as you know you cant make an equilateral from mega prims because the minute to stretch them according to the required formula...poof... and the building menu doesnt reflect the length of a triangles sides either... Im sure that some bright spark is going to tell me to make tri
  2. Oh good at least we have your assurance that none of this 3rd party software cant be used to import anything 'unpleasant' into sl that nice to know.. and its good to see that you can calculate everything in the entirety of existence and even invoke Jesus to back you up... Excellent... Funny I remember how people drooled over emerald viewer too... Lol.... (and they said the Titanic was unsinkable and that bees can't fly technically)
  3. Thanks at least you managed to respond to my post without the snide respostes of other 'techs' which software did they use was it software suggested by Lindens ?
  4. How about answering the questions I put to you a few posts back ??By the way Ive been building inworld while watching the blog and got a lot farther with my build that a house consisting of a cube and a prism stuck together....
  5. Oh and if youre going to get offensive let me respond illogically and offensively in return... Im sick of seeing that bloody awful photograph which appears every time you post it simply reflects the smug and nasty nature of your posts...
  6. I dont give a stuff about creating mesh objects I dont want to learn external software to build inworld... I'm not the one demanding in world mesh software although Ive seen plenty who are... Id reiterate what I am asking for..but Ive said it enough and you and umpteen other techs who are beginning to get offensive...are choosing not to read my posts...
  7. It seems pretty obvious to me as does your typical high handed an offensive attitude
  8. Try reading my posts a little harder.... Emerald was third party software which made it to lindens list of accepted viewers...the next minute they were banning it... whats going to happen whenLindens start a recommended list of third party mesh software are they going to reccomend expensive software free software arent they going to give any guidance I thought that allusion was simple... And if I want to build with more shapes which I do is the only alternative to learn how to use meshes... my argument is simple Lindens should be providing better in world building tools that everyone
  9. How can the 'average' SL user use meshes when there is such a mass of software ranging from free to something which costs 3500 which requires times to learn to use...like the guy who came up with a house using google - sadly a very cubic ordinary looking house - after 24 hours of effort 'it only took him a day' I couldnt believe it.... Surely after the nonsense with emerald people are going to be very wary about external software anyway... What sort of 'content creators ' were invited to test the beta anyway ? Inexperienced users who've never made a sculptie ?
  10. That would of course also include 'smart ass' variations
  11. Id be happy for name changes...providing there was a six month ban for anyone using another persons nick and the simple way of enforcing that is insisting that anyone changing their name check out the sl profiles to see if their proposed new name exists first....
  12. Ermmm.... in my book rezzing the product of labour at external software is not building or creating in world...what you mean is importing an external product.So basically Im right you cant build inworldwith meshes yes you can import them.. which is what Ive been saying in all my posts.... very little of the building process takes place in world... Are mshes capable of beng edited with the inworld building system by the way ??
  13. I can build in world with meshes ?? Great so just point me to the building menu that lets me create mesh models, I cant find the controls ... I'll gladly accept you pointing me to them ?? Im already in world on my hover sled above my spacestation ready to start practising... Yes - I dont know about you but I pay for those resources...and Im not asking for sculpted prims Im asking for more ways of editing existing prim shapes and an extension to the variety of prims that are available... The inworld building system barely changes...thats whats wrong with it..Im all in favour of innovation bu
  14. I love building as well as doing a host of other things in sl...I dont want to have to become a software boffin to build though, and I certainly dont want to seeLindens craftily dodge providing me - or any other regular sl builder - with decent building tools inworld...we arent seeing any changes with in world building or even any mention of whats happening to inworld building.. And while the mesh fanatics are passing this off with a quick 'prims will be around for a long time to come' theyre not 'encouraging' any statement on the future of building with prims or encouraging innovation for pe
  15. Add a nominal fee eh Jack..... KERCHING !!!! Some bloody crafty planning strategists at Lindens I'll give you that.... By the way will that be chargeable for v.a.t. Lol
  16. So let me see f I got this straight..I dont use avatars united...but if I understand it correctly its a way of people from various virtual worlds communicating , saying whats going on in their worlds... Lindens buy it...then shut it down... bang goes the hub of interworld communication... ?
  17. Jennifer I'm not counting on anything from Lindens expect barmy new schemes to attract new customers and more rules and cutback to make SL slightly less attractive to existing customers we've heard nothing about attempts to stabilise in world burdens like the farce of crossing regional or even parcel boundaries... philip for all his talk about making sl more accessible has done nothing at all about pricing - it wasn't even mentioned during his inworld meeting... but of course all this 'brave new world' talk about meshes provides, as ever, a convenient smokescreen to obscure those of us who
  18. Hmmm I think some people are bamboozling others as to the capability of these meshes and Im thinking its going to be a lot less than SL is capable of handling... good grief despite many calls from ordinary builders Lindens cant even give us megaprims as standard yet....me Id just be happy to choose the axis I want to taper my prims along...even that seems beyond the capability of sl... Certainly Im not hearing anything at all from lindens to suggest people who like building inworld using those ordinary prims have anything new or interesting to look forward to.. ...and despite the obvious, th
  19. ive just looked at a blender link I was given a couple of posts ago by Melissa - very nice artwork undoubtedly - so how much of that can be imported into sl? when and when will I be able to fly the ornithopter in sl? Or when can I expect to see avy's like - MetalPhoenix, AndroidII or AmazingGirl....??
  20. 4 years ago ????? Good grief how much would the new version of that software cost ? Im shocked trully shocked
  21. Just to put it in perspective mine and my partners combined tier is 150 (not including v.a.t of course but no one at lindens ever takes v.a.t into account)so 3500 WOULD PAY OUR TIER FOR 2 YEARS !!!!!
  22. Give me a sec Im still gasping at the thought of paying 3500 to build............ is somebody going to show me something good done with cheap software...very cheap... no wonder theres no talk of Lindens providing in world mesh building tools !!!!!
  23. 3500 ???????????????????? And thats not for the up to date software..... Okay how long did it take to produce those 'blueprints of the pieces ??
  24. Pity noone made a video for smug so and sos who cant see genuine concerns about the changes and lump everyone together as 'anti mesh'
  25. Jennifer I must admit Im curious about that train youre building ...I didnt read the full post because theres just so much now...but how much did that complex looking bit of software with the various diagrams of the train cost... Have I interpreted proprely you imported a picture of a locomotive and then just copied the info into the software ? Or did you have to draw the picture of the train first ? Dont you need to know all the dimensions of your train or do you import the info you create on that software and then 'texture' prims with the details which you then stretch to size ??
