  1. Im reading that announcement again and again very carefully it is talking about private regions - which I assume means 'islands' so what is the plan for ordinary land holders ?? I dont like the fact that theres no apparent mention.

     

    I hope there arent plans afoot to increase and if there are we are giving more than a weeks notice as we were with the imposition of v.a.t

    Next Steps for Mesh Import

    This thread is about as relevant to the ordinary builder in sl as  ballet lessons are to a rhinoceros...

    A   mass of smug 'smart asses' arguing for high tech building processes that  sl will be totally unable to handle and will be of minimal use to a minimum of sl users

    Despite Jennifur's intriguing  arguments the revelation that quality software costs up to 3500  was  staggering...

    Of course anyone like myself who argued for improvement on what we have and what most if not all builders in sl and not just a select few was almost instantly dismissed by people I can only describe for the  most part as obnoxious geeks..

    In the meantime as people ask for their super meshed high tech sl, I notice that as of yet Philips improvements about boundary crossing have come to nothing....boundary crossing is as bad as ever, in fact if my experiences were anything to go by during some exploration yesterday they're worse  talk about learning to run before you can walk (especially over a sim boundary)....

    In the meantime the only reason Im back on this forum at all is because lindens cant even make the email notification block operate correctly and I noticed the same old voices still need to take a reality check..

    what price complex building systems ??

    of course anyone who argued for a  system improvement on what we have rather than a ludicrous nass of technical improvements akin to fitting a steam locomotive with an atomic reactor was almost instantly dismissed by people I cna only describe for the most part as obnoxious geeks..

    I'll leave this forum to the usual mass of obnoxious dismissals, arguing for improvements that would benefit everyone rather than a few software wizards has become pointless

    Thanks for the concise reply I expected from someone who started arguing instead, I imagine he simply couldnt comprehend my point of view like a few others... at least you understand where Im coming from...

     

    So if I wanted ago myself without paying cash what would you recommend do you have a link to the software...?

    Im beginning to think if the likes of some of the people here can manage to make these meshes it might not be so complex after all....

    Next Steps for Mesh Import

    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 triangles using software outside sl... yep i cna go to those lengths for basic shapes...

    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)

    Next Steps for Mesh Import

    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...

    Next Steps for Mesh Import

    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 is going to have the ability t use.. assuming they were building inworld in the firsst place...

    Next Steps for Mesh Import

    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 ?

    Next Steps for Mesh Import

    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 ??

    Next Steps for Mesh Import

    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 but on a system I know and use.....

    Do you actually pay a tier and expect Lindens to provide you with the ability to build in world without additional software outside or not ??
