    Next Steps for Mesh Import

    If this mesh becomes the main building tool and every creator has to import every new item...clothes, avvys, housing units et al Lindens are going to make a fortune.. I enjoy taking inworld snaps and I totted up my monthly bill once I was shocked...If lindens aren't going to make from this one lets see them put their faith in the new system and abolish upload fees.....

    Next Steps for Mesh Import

    No I dont expect an in world mesh editor - I expect inworld building to be improved and innovated... and a system that exists and that everyone who wants to build knows how to use expanded....instead of littering the place with more slow rezzing 'sculpties....

    No body has told me about that tyrannosaurus yet... does a 'map' have to be added to an inworld prim as with current scultpies? If so would all of the bones in that skeleton be 'mapped' onto one prim ? Now that tyrannosaur looks in sclae so if a 'amp' has to be used in conjuction with inworld prims its got to be lots of little prims as megas are strictly not legal yet right ?

    If you dont have to use these maps in conjuction with prims how exactly are they rezzed in world ?

    I believe the last in world T. rex skeleton I saw was easily into the hundreds of prims...

    Also if I build a house for example using these meshes do I have to be able to calculate the positions of doors , windows floors etc in my nice blender software or whatever I use ? Does it then load as a map again to be imprinted on a single prim....

    Im really getting fed up of people praising this programme or that programme to create...this must be exactly what lindens want... the need to provide the tools for content creation taken out of their hands... We should be demanding better in world tools for content creation...are we really paying lindens (Im assuming those revelling in their high tech paradise do actually pay tiers ?) to be told to go and download some third party programme go and create outworld and hope the end product looks right once we've uploaded it which again we have to pay for ???

     

    Believe it or not some of us do actually enjoy doing our 'construction' inworld. I cant don a space suit or sub aqua gear if Im puzzling over some software out world and if Im creating a building I cant get into that 3rd party software and walk around and make adjustments as necessary either....

    Next Steps for Mesh Import

    I just want a bigger better sl lego set in world please...give me triangles and polygons and prims that can be sliced and shaped in world..a few extra building menus that relay the dimensions of edited prims correctly... Introduce megaprims as norm..

    the ability to slice prims in any plane, round their corners and see the results in world without having to import anything.....

    Of course that suddenly means you put the responsibility back on lindens to do something ...its all very well lindens going and saying yes you go use your external creation software and we'll just take the money... seems a very crafty cop out to me..

    I think people should be calling on lindens to make sure theres an up to date innovated building system inworld that can be used by anyone whos stuck prims together inworld...

    Next Steps for Mesh Import

    In 20 years I'll be 70 if I'm lucky enough to make it that far...Im purely concerned with short term  - and while I have no objection to people using their meshes I just want some assurances that the building system we have in world is not going to simply be allowed to stagnate or even turned off....

    I dont want to hear it from someone who 'drools' over new tech.. (My idea of 'new tech' is getting rid of a fortunes worth of vhs cassettes and replacing em with dvds ) no matter how clever they are . I want to hear from the horses mouth whats going to happen.

    I dont know how often I have to reiterate this but I am paying to be in SL not be learning how to use new software which is used outworld the product of which you have to pay to import...

    I dont see jack linden saying upload charges will be ended...Cynics might even see an increase in upload charges.

    I see an sl world full of sculpties which take ages to rez if they rez at all....

    Lets face it more than ten people move into a region and its 'screwed'....

    Next Steps for Mesh Import

    Any introduction of a system to create 'outworld' should go hand in hand with improvement and innovation of the building system most people in sl know and understand..

    I see sl become extremely techno elitist you can even see it happening in this forum already... Im wondering if thats why teenagers are now allowed in world because they'll have the computer education to manipulate these techniques...

    WHATS HAPPENING TO THE INWORLD SYSTEM  USING PRIMS ???

     

    im not paying a huge tier to have to learn how to create out world  and then paying even more to import....

     

    I was looking to improvement in the in world building system ...now Im beginning to wonder if the inworld building system is going to be turned off in which case we'll see how many technogeeks you can find to replacetier paying peasants .....

    Next Steps for Mesh Import

    I'm sure those builds are impressive, even if they dont really look like a part of the sl I know... but what level of skill is required, how long, for example, does it take to create the tyrannosaurus skeleton - is it one prim or many ? is it a normal sized prim or a megaprim ? or does this push the old idea of prims out of the window ?

    What about the people who use and understand the building system, we already have in world ?

    Next Steps for Mesh Import

    Im sure this is all very nice for the tecnically minded among us but what about the inworld building system that doesnt seem to change ...how about some innovation there or is the inworld building system just going to be allowed to die out...

     

    Theres so much Im sure the technical people could do for those of us who pay to build with those resources at hand.

    What about megaprims ? When when when are they going to become the norm ? and when can we expect more prims per parcel ?

    What about new prim shapes and new methods of shaping them ?

     

    Im sure meshes are fine for those who dont want to work on building inside sl AND want to pay to import their meshes...

    BUT is the inworld system just going to be left to die a death ??

    What about innovating and improving a system we can all already use in SL ?

    Come on tell us what the future of the inworld building system is...all this talk of meshes ( what happened to calling em 'scultpies') and yet we never hear anything about the existing SL building system ...
