  1. Huh. It is a loophole in the rules I suppose. The prices reset but you can still see what you buy. But it is annoying and it increases the risk of people buying what they don't need or want just to get what they think is number two in the list. It feels like cheating... but is it illegal? I think not, since we see what we buy all the time. The best one can do is warn about these gacha sellers in blogs, Facebook and other places outside this official forum. Because we can't name them here. It was not midnight SL time, when the list resets automatically?
  2. I think those who did not start before 2013 or when the first bodies came out, has never tried to stack system layers. They only know appliers and have always hidden the system body. For those who has used the classic default body, Bom is like going back to my old familiar style and I remembered stacking so well. Piling on freckles, tattoos, pubic hair, modesty patches, skintight underwear and tights. And now also Halloween effects like blood, gore and cracked skin on top. Great.☺️ 62 layers or whatever the number is. I have never managed to use all.
  3. Aaah, modern? πŸ˜‹ Yes, I have hope for that, @Nika Talaj. I need a new theme to lift my spirit. I feel a bit "done" with the existing themes. @Patch Linden is a tease, but he has not tricked us when he tags it with Linden Homes. Not before at least. (I have not even bothered to try a Chalet or Fantasy one)
  4. 3500 L? That was not very cheap.
  5. If you remember "Maitreya", maybe you already have the mesh body - Maitreya Lara. If so, you should get an update. A lot has changed and been improved. If you do not use a mesh body, you will have problems with shoes. Everything of newer design is made for mesh body feet. It is really a dominant market for mesh bodies now, I am not sure if I see clothes for avatars without a mesh body. It is easy to replace old inventory with a new one, because of the Weekend sales. It is a lot to get, especially for women. Both the suit and hair I am wearing is from last weekend. The hair cost me 60 L in "Happy Weekend" and the suit came in different colors, but I bought a fatpack since it was 50% off in the "Saturday Sale". (Seraphimsl.com list all the sales, but if you are in Europe, they are listed very late. We can shop Monday morning also, because the SL weekend is still on) Men does not get so many offers, but it is almost always sneakers, jackets, shorts and pants in casual clothing style. I use Firestorm viewer, I am not even sure where to find things in the Default viewer. The list over "wearing" is found by clicking a button with a t-shirt symbol.
  6. The labeling of items was mentioned in another thread. Clearly it is some start issues that need to be taken care of. "The Vendor pictures on some machines were not clearly labelled what item was for that ball number. Vendor pictures need to be improved on a few machines. OR you automatically get a notecard when you play the machine with details of items inside and their numbers. To get around this, I just Right-clicked on the machine and brought up the edit menu to see what items were inside it. lol" "Also, for clothing items, be very careful what buttons you choose on the popup. The numbering system is not friendly. Example: PA107b, PA107c, PA107d etc PA107b is for Lara, PA107c Lara flat, PA107s, Legacy... etc "
  7. Hm, I got all I wanted with the alts in play. No doubles. Even if I loved what I got, it would be better to buy it as mod/copy. The thing with a fatpack, is that the adult objects, the sofa, would drive the price up. Instead of getting 2 adult sofas for 2 X 50 L, the sofa in a fatpack would make it more expensive that shopping by alt. So I think I have got it cheaper even if I bought some things twice, like the panels, to fill out the set. I wonder how gacha resellers do it. I could have got 3 adult rares if I wanted. Gacha resellers can easy game this with alts. I can see the adult version is for sale from 1200 to 1900 on the Marketplace. But will people really buy it for so much? I suppose we will wait and see.
  8. Just so I am sure, the items are transfer still? It is exactly 1 vendor there that is of interest. And since my alts can get dusted off and go to work, I will test this system as long as it is transfer. It helps that this particular vendor has 50 L per pull for items that can be used all year, not stuff like a cup of cocoa. This HUD that is personal actually makes it easier for me to get what I want, as long as I whip my alts into service.
  9. Linden starter avatars is not all the same. You have the mesh starter avatars. You will see that their faces look like "flesh-colored plastic". Those caused massive complaints since they could not be customized. You can not buy other skins, shoes and clothes for them. Then it is the classic starter avatars that work same as the avatars you are familiar with. They have clothes you can take on and off, prettier skin that can be changed and they fit all that is labeled "classic". I am not sure what you are wearing since you don't tell the name. For 2 years ago, almost all mesh brands of heads and bodies was well established and known. So you were maybe not interested back then. Complexity is not only the mesh body and head. The accessories from old has insanely high complexity. It is not uncommon to find hairs that increase the complexity with 100 000. Or sunglasses and watches. An example where my total complexity is 87 394. And that is not particular high. My mesh body is only 5450 and my head+eyes+teeth is 6122 together. But only one bracelet (bought 2013) has higher complexity than all the rest together. Remove the bracelet with complexity 51 364 and my total is 36 030. I can also replace it with a new, modern bracelet with lower complexity and be around 40 000.
  10. I wrote a long and detailed reply, where I argued on half a page, but I deleted it. I consider myself done. It is not that you do it wrong or that I do it right, we just do it two different ways.
  11. The creator can have packed the wrong hairbase in the vendor, or messed up with names. That is the only option if you are 110% sure you wear both Evo X skin and hairbase. Take a look at the hairbase again. Does the folder have 2 versions? One Evo and one EvoX? You could tell where it is from, I am sure someone can test a demo. PS: You tested a demo before you bought it? It is a reason why we always say demo, demo, demo.
  12. True, but my philosophy is: If someone already made it and gives it out for free, save time and use it instead.
  13. I'm crossposting from the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge again. I like how this one turned out.
  14. I have these that can replace all your shoe bases with white texture: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Lunis-Hidden-Hover-Shoes/19623451 I think I will get another set, with extreme shoe heights. https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/HC-Shoe-Bases/21281072 If I remember to put one of these in my outfits, the feet heigh (Maitreya) (Feet auto-select) changes automatic. But I almost newer use an outfit twice, so I usually don't bother. https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Maitreya-Mesh-Body-Feet-Auto-Select-V5-Attachments/19507806
  15. Thank you so much for posting this. I had seen it in Seraphim, but I though every single item was priced to 25 L. Some sellers do just that... And I managed to get the set just now! And it is so low Li. Especially the Step ladder that comes filled with pots and plants, all for just 3 Li. And the hanging herbs only 2 Li, the rest is 1 Li I think. And the pots and oils is grouped in several ones, so it is also Li saving.
  16. Same for you... I get that you want dark and mysterious images, but a bit more light, to see you better?
  17. Men in glasses are so sexy, but I can barely see you... so a bit lighter image next time?
  18. I was fast with this one, because I was wearing the outfit and hair. I only had to change color in the jumpsuit and shoes.
  19. I have not seen many of the new machines. I hope they turn out to be unpopular, because I think they are worse than the old Gacha. Worse for the customer.
  20. You are pretty! 😍 The hair gives that weird alpha clash where it makes the bathing suit transparent around the strands. It is a shame that creators do not take care when they upload textures with alpha channels in clothes, or set the texture to alpha masking. Because that combo of hair, pose and bathing suit is 100% perfect. More than 100%. I am wildly envious!
  21. Are you using BoM eyes or applier eyes? If you use an applier (and the eyes in the HUD are appliers) you must use an eye alpha. It could be that the default eyes poke through.
  22. But my default head was the fake one, now I am as I wanted to be . πŸ’–
  23. I second this. You need to go to the inworld stores, since Belleza, Signature and Lelutka does not have their items on the Marketplace. A quick search with "Belleza Jake" and then "Signature Gianni" returned numbers so close that you can demo and buy the body you like best, without thinking about finding skins, clothes and tattoos for it. As for heads, Lelutka Evo X heads are "in" now. It is lots of new contents made for it. If you follow the weekend sales, like Happy Weekend and The Manly Weekend, you will see that all clothes comes in both Signature Gianni and Belleza Jake sizes. This is a great way to save money. I must say that the Happy Weekend sale does not have a lot of male items, but what they have looks good. And almost all the time it is beards, brows and other items like facial scars for Lelutka Evo X. Sometimes even a head skin for 50 or 60 L. With separate heads and bodies, you will have to buy a body skin too. It gives you the best possible match when you buy it in the same store. I can link you to the last Manly Weekend offer here: https://manlysl.com/manly-weekend/ But Facebook is acting up and I can't link to the Happy Weekend gallery there. If you look up Seraphimsl.com at Fridays and Saturdays, they link to all the weekend sales.
