  1. Absolutely. There's no question about that, Medhue. You and I both know, however, that a distressingly high number of landowners don't understand these things at all. Recall, for example, how poorly many landowners understand the effect that scripts have (or don't have) on sim perfomance. I am not confident that many landowners can get past two ground-level concerns: (1) I have to stay within a prim allocation and (2) I want to keep costs down. They do fret about lag all the time, but that's harder to understand. So,.... I build a house that has four large pillars, each with a nice ba

  3. It's a conection issue. You may be able to cure it by simply rebooting your router. Unplug it from the power and walk away for a few minutes. When you come back, plug it back in again. That will force the router to find the IP address again and may clear up your problem. It may also help to reboot your computer. If that doesn't work, then try this slightly more complicated solution >>> http://neilrobinson.wordpress.com/2008/05/19/a-fix-for-dns-errors/. Basically, it amounts to adding additional DNS servers to your DNS settings in Network settings under System Preferences, instea
  4. The last time I dared to use my ancient laptop to come in world, it did the same thing. It was overheating rapidly. I shut it down and have not used it for SL since. Overheating is no joke. It can wipe out your graphics card or components of your motherboard permanently. If you have a desktop machine, be sure that you open it up once a month and use a can of compressed air to blow out any dust and cat hair that has accumulated. Invest in a couple of good fans, too. (I have four in my tower, counting the one that's mounted on the GPU.) If you are using a laptop, it's harder to clean ins
  5. All we can do, as fellow SL residents, is point you to the relevant policies >>>> https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Snapshot_and_machinima_policy https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Intellectual_Property and, of course, the Terms of Service >>>> https://secondlife.com/corporate/tos.php?lang=en-US If you have any questions about what these mean (or even if your don't, but want to avoid legal issues), I advise hiring a RL lawyer to read and interpret them for you. Those of us who answer questions here are not qualified to do that.
  6. Chosen Few wrote: Were a change actually to happen, there's an easy way to prevent that. Just grandfather pre-existing sculpties into the one-prim scheme, and apply new PE numbering only to newer ones. Yes, I considered that possibility myself, Chosen, but I couldn't figure out what quailfies as a "new" sculpty. If I rez a sculpty from inventory, or shift-drag it, is it new? Or if I create a new prim , declare it to be a sculpty and apply an "old" sculpty UV map? Or only if I use a newly-uploaded UV map? This feels like the -- heaven forbid -- arguments about when life begins. Wha
  7. Medhue Simoni wrote: As far as I know, sculpties will never cost more than 1 prim, unless you link it to a mesh or change it's physics. OH, and let me add. Any content creator that has a real investment in SL, and lots of loyal customers, will most likely convert their sculpties to mesh. I would also suggest they give free updates to mesh for their items. I personally will never buy another sculpty product. Because of sculpties being soooooo inefficient, in a year or 2, no1 will be making sculpties, and I'd be willing to bet that all users will replace their sculpties with mesh, whether
  8. Welcome back, Chosen, and thank you for the characteristically well thought out discussion of scultpies and PE. Your reading of history is good. Scuplties were a stopgap. They have served us well, but they have severe limitations. The challenge now, though, is that we can't have a do-over on history. We needed the stopgap, but we can't just turn around now and undo the past two years of sculpty history. We have a world full of sculpties that people have spent creative time and a lot of L$ for. Changing the rules on PE is clearly the right thing to do from the standpoint of efficiency, bu
  9. You may currently post up to 5 events per day (including event edits).  The most common reason people have problems posting events is that they go over the limit, especially with edits. See the rest of the rules at https://secondlife.com/my/community/events/tos.php?nextpage=%2Fmy%2Fcommunity%2Fevents%2Fedit.php%3Flang%3Den-US
  10. Always check to be sure that you are sending L$ to someone's username, not his Display Name. Usernames are unique, but there can be 1,000 people with the Display name BobSmith. If you send L$ to that name, it will go to the only person whose username is BobSmith, not to your friend.
  11. Well, L$11 is barely more than 4 cents. That's almost free. The creator of those sculpties won't allow you to sell the full-perm sculpties as sculpties, but when they have your textures on them, that's a different matter. Make your textured sculpties no-mod so that the buyer can't rip the texture or get the bare sculpty, and then give them away. Your ex-partner's copies will be worthless.
  12. Think of all the breedable horses and those cute little meeroos. Somebody has to take care of them when they get sick, don't they?
  13. Do NOT tell this new alt the password. You have no proof that it is really the same person, She could be a thief, trying to gain access to your friend's account. If you can get into it, the real owner can too. For the future..... NEVER tell anyone your password, and don't use someone else's account either. According to the TOS, the account owner is responsible for everything that happens with the account. A dishonest person could use your stolen avatar to grief other people, and could empty your L$ account and transfer all of your great things in inventory.
  14. You still have the boxed items in your inventory, so add the LM to them. Then open your Magic Box and remove the ones that are there and replace them with the newly-modified ones. So long as you don't change the names of the items in any way, the Marketplace software will continue to look for items with those names in your Magic Box and will just pick up the new ones instead of what was there before.
  15. Now that he has the items and they are in his vendors, he is the owner. He can do anything he wants with them. As far as I can see, your only way to beat him at his game is to do what one major shoe designer did three years ago (1) Offer the items yourself for free (possibly with a discount coupon for some other great item, to make the freebies move fast) and (2) Develop a completely new product that will outdo anything you made before and gave to him.
  16. You might post this question in the Fashion forum or maybe in General Discussion. You're more likely to get specific recommendations there. Personally, I'm not aware of any shape demos sold with mod perms, but then shapes are so easy to make with the Appearance sliders that I have never bought one in SL.
  17. All viewers have Preferences (CTRL + P) >>> Graphics . You enable streamed media on that page. Do be sure that you have clicked the "Advanced" box so that you see the full set of parameters.
  18. Also, do not put anything in the "Interests" category. If you leave that completely blank, the system won't suggest your profile to other people who may have common interests.
  19. Try using streams that aren't blocked. There are plenty of them.

  21. The Scripting forum is meant as a place for scripters to learn from each other. It's not really a place to look for scripts. If you are looking for someone to write a script for you, the best place to ask is in the Inworld Employment section of the Commerce Forums (http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Inworld-Employment/bd-p/InworldEmployment). If you are looking for a script that already exists, try Marketplace or the LSL Scripting Library (http://community.secondlife.com/t5/LSL-Scripting-Library/bd-p/LSLScriptingLibrary) or the Wanted section of the Commerce forums (http://community.secondlife
  22. Here? Assuming that you have payment information on file, you can buy L$ by clicking on the L$ symbol in the extreme upper right corner of your viewer screen when you are in world. If you're not, you can buy L$ from your dashboard at https://secondlife.com/my/?lang=en-US . Click the Buy $L link in the left-hand sidebar, under the Linden Exchange header.
  23. It all depends on how you stretch and cut the prim. A cube has 7 faces, of which one is the inside face. So you can show up to 5 faces total. Try it. Make a cube, taper it in X and Y, and slice the top off the resulting pyramid. Then flatten it on Z. You'll have four trapezoidal faces surrounding one square. The inside face (#6) and the bottom (#5) won't be seen.
  24. It's quite simple, assuming that the people are registered as SL residents. Use the Map API and designate your chapel as the destination. See >>> http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Map_API for an overview and a link to the instructions for setting yours up. ETA: If they aren't SL residents, of course, all bets are off.... until you convince them to join. :smileywink:
  25. Define an integer counter, start it at zero, and then loop through your sound files in a timer event, with the time set to just a little longer than your longest segment..... llPlaySound(llGetInventoryName(INVENTORY_SOUND, counter), 1.0); When you play the last one, shut off the timer.
