  1. Thanks, Chosen. Those are the sorts of things I'm trying to decide, and I do appreciate your wise words. I'm not a big-time builder -- I spend more of my time scripting these days -- so I don't have to rush into retooling for mesh, just as I didn't rush into sculpties at first. Until a higher proportion of residents have a mesh-enabled viewer (and until LL can manage to make theirs reliable) the market won't be beating my door down with demands for mesh stuff anyway. Still, I see the future on the near horizon so I want to get my head around these important issues. Thanks again. And, aga
  2. The SL wiki is by far your best reference. It's where you will find links to all sorts of tutorials and basic information. Start with http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Creation_Portal , where you will find links to building, texturing, animation, and many other skills. For scripting, start at http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/LSL_Portal , where you will find similar links to tutorials and our "bible" for LSL syntax.
  3. I know this wiki page is on the Firestorm web site, but it seerms to address the problem for V3 as well >>> http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=mac_os_x_10.7_lion_problems
  4. See http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Scripting-Library/Send-a-message-and-notecard-to-a-list-of-contacts/td-p/353177. Please note that there's an automatic 2-second delay for each IM you send in SL. That doesn't sound like much if you're only sending IMs to ten people. If you're sending them to 100 people, though, it will take 200 seconds -- that's 3 minutes and 20 seconds. Kinda slow. Also think kindly of the people on your list. Some people consider mass mailings to be spam.
  5. I have no idea. What have you tried, and what happened when you did? Any error messages? If you'd like to tell us more so we can help, just click on the Options link in the upper right corner of your question and select EDIT. ETA: Ah, I see... This is a duplicate post. Original at http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Technical/i-updated-my-cc-info-over-an-hour-go-and-it-s-still-saying-it-s/qaq-p/1139129 . Follow LoveAngel's advice there (and here).

    Some of your user settings files may be corrupted. Your best chance is to do a completely clean re-install of your viewer. That means removing not only the viewer's exe file and everything else in the same folder (probably in C:\Program) but also the viewer's local and roaming settings in Documents & Settings. Then install a fresh copy of your preferred viewer. See http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=fs_clean_reinstall for a description of the steps. If you're not using Firestorm, look for the equivalent files for your own viewer.
  7. It's almost impossible to tell you what to do without knowing more than you have told us here. Do you get an error message of some kind? If so, what is it? If not, then you didn't crash --- you disconnected. What was the last thing that the viewer did before you disconnected? What kind of computer do you have? What graphics card? If you want to add these bits of information or anything else that might help us diagnose the problem, please click on the Options link in the upper right corner of your question and select EDIT.
  8. If you just opened it, and it's a Basic account, don't even bother closing it. Be sure that you haven't committed to any continuing payments for group liabilities or rent, and just walk away. If you ever decide to come back, the account will still be here.
  9. First of all, please remove his name from your post here so that you don;t get in trouble for violating the Community Standards. Unfortunately, there's no rule that says a merchant has to refund your money. They generally do, especially if they expect your repeat business, but this merchant may have been burned too many times by scam artists to trust that you aren't just trying to pull a fast one on him. I had a similar disagreement with a merchant myself a year ago, so I also know that some merchants can just be hardnosed about it. You can try filing a support ticket and seeing if LL is wil
  10. To get a record of the individual items in your order, open Marketplace and click the My Marketplace menu at the top of the page. Select My Account >> Order History from the pulldown menu. If the item you received is on that transaction history, you ordered it, whether you intended to or not. You'll have to deal with the merchant and see whether s/he will be willing to refund your L$. Don't expect miracles, especially if you have copy permission for the item. If it's not on your Order History, the only way you could have received it is if someone bought it and had it sent as a gift.
  11. The error is easy to fix. The llSensorRepeat statement near the top of your script isn't in an event. It's just hanging out there by itself. If you want it to be in the state_entry event ( a logical spot), remove the extra }{ brackets just before it. As for the timing ..... You want to clear the lists of any names and times that are more than 24 hours old. (Script memory is precious.) However, suppose that you only ran the timer event once a day and someone wandered in 10 seconds after the timer fired? The next time it fired, 24 hours later, that person would not be removed from the list
  12. 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

  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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.

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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. Well, L$11 is barely more than 4 cents. That's almost free. The creator of those sculpties won't allow you to sell the full-perm sculpties as sculpties, but when they have your textures on them, that's a different matter. Make your textured sculpties no-mod so that the buyer can't rip the texture or get the bare sculpty, and then give them away. Your ex-partner's copies will be worthless.
  23. Think of all the breedable horses and those cute little meeroos. Somebody has to take care of them when they get sick, don't they?
  24. Do NOT tell this new alt the password. You have no proof that it is really the same person, She could be a thief, trying to gain access to your friend's account. If you can get into it, the real owner can too. For the future..... NEVER tell anyone your password, and don't use someone else's account either. According to the TOS, the account owner is responsible for everything that happens with the account. A dishonest person could use your stolen avatar to grief other people, and could empty your L$ account and transfer all of your great things in inventory.
  25. 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.
