    Next Steps for Mesh Import

    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 people who dont want to learn and use new software which cant be used in sl.....

  1. 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... ?

    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 shout for a better deal from sl.

    Ive seen enough to tell me that meshes are going to be a source of fun for an sl minority who love 'tech' I see no indication from any of them, bar yourself, that they enjoy sl inworld activities or building...the one builder whose work I know and trust, Cobalt Neutra seemed dismissive of sl's plans.

    I dont need to be a tech to know that I can't build inworld with meshes and that I cant see my finished creation inworld until Ive paid to import it. Supporters of mesh have generally been dismissive of anyone voicing concern about the plans or demanding some commitment by lindens to providing us with not only a functioning inworld building system but an improving one..They also demand more and more of sl resources...

    Lindens have not taken part at any stage of the discussion...

    You're right I dont count on anything from Linden labs except of course more questionaires whose results always seem obscure and - if my responses have been at all typical - unheeded....

    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, the techies still arent acknowledging the simple fact that wholescale introduction of meshes would give lindens the ability to simply shrug off any responsibilty for providing sl builders with new and interesting tools based on the system EVERYONE knows how to use.....

    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....??

    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 ??

    If lindens can soup up sl to accomodate all these buffs who seem to want to turn sl into some super cgi film..they can certainly up the prim count plot introduce megaprims and give the inworld building system a makeoker... all of which if done correctly would be infinitely more use and more FUN for the average sl user....

    Everyone is arguing from a dealers point of view..

    Well I dont sell anything in sl I pay to play...I pay to have fun and working at complex software out of world is simply not my idea of fun...

    What would be fun would be being able to do more with the inworld buildings system not to be told to go away and make some mathematical idea of what I want to build and then pay more on top of my tier to import my build hoping the end product looks like I want it to....
