  1. /me throws another brick - Firebrick The bricks are finished!! 😡
  2. Brick Red is hard, I think it looks too pink... but... Ugh. It is so few red colors in SL. It is many but all seem to be in 2 or 3 groups. No one a muted red with some orange.
  3. Well, trying to catch up with Fired Brick. I took the covard's way out with Charteruse. I had troubles with Banana - I posted an image, but was told it is more green and it is actually a good Charteruse. So I renamed it. πŸ˜‡ https://www.flickr.com/photos/27764102@N02/50700466047/in/dateposted-public/ Back on track, here is the Fired Brick outfit.
  4. I prefer to use an auto-refresher set to 70 or 80 seconds. I am sure that I am not locked out then. If I do it manually, I forget to refresh. I want to read another page while the auto-refresh is working on the LH page. And alerts me when the home I want comes up. I saw all kinds of homes when I was looking for a new home. But I had certain criteria for it, so I got it and abandoned it, up to my 5 times per 24 hours. I was following the abandoned ones through Firestorm teleport history, and saw them picked up and abandoned again and again. But when I logged in next day, they were taken. It is both "picky" people that has had Bellisseria homes before and look for a special location, and people that just want a home. And people have different opinons of what's their best location.
  5. And a rare houseboat makes an appearance. I would say it is a good variety of homes these days, unless one has very specific wishes about Houseboats and Stilts on Pier/Water.
  6. And still there are a Traditional up for taking. We have no way of knowing if it is the same that is claimed and abandoned, or if it is a new one. I know some houses has been on the Home page several times for days. But it may be a fine location. I believe the Home page is being watched by several who try to get not just a fine location, but a superfine location. I had quite strong ideas of what I wanted. And believe it or not, one of my dreams was abandoned! But I was asleep so someone else took it. So that is it, a game of luck. I had abandoned many fine houses before I got one that was almost a dream location. Close enough. πŸ˜‰
  7. Yeah, new theme: Water AND modern... that would get my heart bumping faster. πŸ˜‚ The Chalet and Fantasy themes was not for me. It appears LL has made plenty of them, so they will last for a long time.
  8. And it stays up a while. I am sure somebody is watching the land page for the more rare homes, so they let the Traditional be.
  9. And when I refresh now, it is a Traditional along with the other homes. Traditional, Camper, Chalet, Log Home and Fantasy.
  10. It is impossible to say an exact number. But in this thread, it is posted what type house is up when someone was in and checked. Yesterday and Friday was the two last posts, and with Traditionals. But now, as I type here, it is only Campers, Chalets, Log Homes and Fantasy Homes. I spent some time a month ago looking for a new LH, and as I remember it, Traditionals are not rare, but not common either. They are in the middle. The hardest to get is Houseboats, Stilts on Pier and Stilts on Water
  11. So how about the ASUS TUF Gaming FX505DT-BQ051T? It has good reviews from what I can see. (In stores my country) AMD Ryzenβ„’ R5-3550H prosessor Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 8 GB RAM og 512 GB M.2 SSD
  12. When you try for a new house and get one you don't want, you abandon it again. But it is a risk that you will get the same back when you try again. If you use Firestorm, you can open teleport history and see that it has changed name to something else than "Linden Home". If it has an unique name, it is taken and you don't get it back. It is many houses that are picked up and abandoned by people who search for the best possible location. So it is all a lucky game. Is it the recirculated inland house that's making its 20th round, or a new location by water? You can not tell before you accepted it. It can be best to spread your 5 tries out, and keep checking the teleport history so you can see if there are some of your discarded tries that are "Linden Home".
  13. Izzie's have neck blenders for EvoX. https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Izzies-DEMO-Neck-Blender-LeLutka-Evo-X/22641313
  14. He can not get asian looks. The only free or cheap heads I have seen, is strictly caucasian. As with everything, what you pay for, is what you get. Free and cheap heads and bodies are limited in what you find for them. Creators know that those who get a 1 L body, will not pay for apparel, so it is not worth the time creating for it. It is after all, a price to upload mesh and textures to SL, just to have no sales because free body owners will not spend money. It is better to use their time on customers that will pay for their work. Unless you are really lucky and happen to join SL when a big brand has a gift out. This has happened several times, but it is impossible to predict if it happens again. Such heads as we got from Catwa and Lelutka were 100% functional and can use all the features including skins, tattoos, piercings made by other creators for that brand. The 1500 L sale on Jake Belleza body is a good offer, if he want some variation and good quality in his wardrobe. If he wants just a few outfits, it is good enough to use the 1 L Legacy Meshbody @Mercedes Avonposted about. It is some 1 L heads. https://ryanschultz.com/2021/05/25/second-life-steals-deals-and-freebies-three-l1-bento-bakes-on-mesh-male-heads-from-calum/ The blog over has several posts for freebie shopping. Most of the freebies in SL is for the female market, but it is enough freebies for a male wardrobe. https://ryanschultz.com/2019/11/24/clip-and-save-ryans-all-in-one-guide-to-freebies-in-second-life/ That blogpost also tell you where to find the free Altamura bodies.
  15. The Tarte sale is still on until 21th September. I bought some decor stuff. The highest Li is the hanging plants, 3 Li each and the homemade photo hanger (pictures from a branch). But I think they are worth it. Especially the photo hanger, it is a lot of decor value. The rest is 1-2 Li each. I like the scrunchy carpets since they are often a very high Li. The Boho one (in the back) is only 1 Li. https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/tarte/149/132/232 I almost forgot, the Airondack chairs is for the Saturday Sale. Only the PG ones are 75 L, but you get 3 versions. From 2-4 Li. The pillow and throw change tecture. It is a firepit too (sold separate), but I did not like it. Sorry that 2 chairs overlap, I was in a hurry, and I noticed it just now.
  16. The head is updated to EvoX, so unless it is bought before the update, it now works as EvoX. Disclaimer: I have not investigated if the old head is still in a separate pack with the update. The EvoX classic mode is only working for BOM skins, so you can switch between Evo and EvoX skins. But Evo X does not have layers other than the HD layers. Learning how to use a product that's on its way out, is more confusing that it is worth. It is safer to learn how EvoX works from the beginning.
  17. Yes, I agree with steeljane 42, you have bought a product that does not work with the kind of head you have. I am sorry, but take this as a warning, that you should always demo what you buy first. There are several "generations" Lelutka heads. The head you have bought, does not use skin appliers at all. That were the older generation. It is still products for sale, since people grow attached to their look and will keep their old head. Lelutka has updated 20 of their heads to EvoX, but it is limits to how long back a company can update the products. It is nothing like a "BOM Applier". It is either BOM or an applier. But to add to the confusion you must feel, there are HD appliers for eyemaleup and lipsticks. What you do with the head you bought, is shopping for a skin marked Lelutka Evo X. Almost all skin sellers separate the head and the body, so what you buy is a face. Depending on what body you have, you buy the body skin from the same seller. Were you in SL when we had tattoos? You will often see a tattoo symbol next to the facial skin. This is because you can only wear one skin. So the face is usually on a tattoo layer. This is the bottom, where you can add other tattoo layers over. You can buy make up as BOM = That is tattoo layers you add on top of the face skin on tattoo. Or you can buy appliers only for makeup, they will work when they are marked Lelutka EvoX. But always demo first.
  18. JPG is the best for the forum. I always take pictures in PNG, edit them and when done, resize and save as JPG. I usually save them in 1024 width and JPG.
  19. Traditional, Camper, Chalet and Fantasy on the Linden Homes page just now.
  20. And I have never played another game that has the camera close and over the shoulder view. I have read that those who are used to this angle, changes the default SL camera so it is familiar to them. But I came to SL as a game virgin, heck, even an internet virgin.
  21. Is crossed eyed desirable? I see it in so many SL fashion ads.
  22. 18 Li makes it unusable, ha. It is worth saying that ChiMia has a few other fireplaces with much less Li. And the price isn't bad for the full priced, like this one: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/ChiMia-Ephermeral-Fireplace/9324205 I have seen it inworld in a furnished house demo, and it is gorgeous.
  23. After 14 years with default camera angle, I have to continue using it. It feels so weird every time I have tried to change it. It is just impossible to look closer to my avatar. My eyes and my brain protest and say it is wrong.
