  1. Hi, only just seen all these messages and I should've provided a screenshot of the model but yeah the only reason why I only relied on the Auto LOD system was because the part of mesh that had the problem were small cylinders that were duplicated using the particle system - so it wasn't entirely important to make my own LODs. But anyway, here's a screenshot of the mesh. Anyway, I fixed the problem by decimating it - it reduced the poly count by a lot! Initially I triangulated it, but it still wasn't able to get the numbers down all the way, so the LI was still returning something like 35, so I
  2. I uploaded a small part of the mesh and only this component has this problem where when uploaded the triangle and vertices count are all the same! It's not usually the case but why is it here? Because of this I can't change the LODs - Yes I'm aware I can make my own LODs, but here it's not very important to do that. EDIT: Think I fixed it by triangulating the faces in Blender. Can someone explain why SL does this then?
  3. Yesterday I modified a sky and water preset and today when I logged in, it didn't apply them as I did yesterday after modifying it. But today when I wanted to apply them I was greeted with this "lovely" error: https://gyazo.com/596d0d66d7c91cfc323eb94523220009 Anyone else have this problem and know how to fix this?
  4. Final update: Fixed it Turns out I had to repair my antivirus. I was then able to restore the Firestorm exe and now I'm loading up.
  5. OK turns out the anti-virus was moving the installers into the virus chest. Also the Firestorm executable that I mentioned was missing, is also in the virus chest - but that for some reason can't be restored while the installers could be restored! Now I'm trying to reinstall, but it says it can't open the executable, it gave me the option to abort, retry or ignore. None of which I want!
  6. I downloaded the new Firestorm, I tried to install the first time. It finished but it was missing the Firestorm executable file to start Firestorm. So I clicked on the installer again, only for it to abruptly stop and the system deleted the installer exe. Then I went download the installer from Firestorm again only for the system now warning me "You don't have permission to save in this location". So I tried a different location (desktop). After attempting install again, it did the same thing again and now that I try to download the installer onto the desktop it's now throwing "You don't have
  7. Thank you, this is the confirmation I needed to avoid this - I tried to look for solutions or work arounds like ordering how it's rendered or the material index (had no idea if I did them even remotely correct) but they didn't work. To get the feathers looking the best that I can without having to model the fine detail (want to keep it as efficient as possible) I'm going to stick with the alpha masking method. It provides the most decent result and one that I'm happy to go with. Thanks
  8. I usually don't have problems applying semi-transparent textures with alpha blending but suddenly in my new project, it's not working. I have a mesh that has loads of feathers on top of one another and I applied the texture to it. But when I did, it looked like u can see through the textures where the mesh is overlapping. Does any one have idea how to fix this. I tried alpha masking but it doesn't have the results i want - where the small gaps in the features are it has a horrible clipping effect. So I preferably want to keep it in alpha blending mode. Here are some screenshots: http
  9. Thank you for the link! I have not watched this one so that's probably why I have no clue haha. I'll definitely give this a watch thanks When you dividing the parts, I'm assuming you mean the flooring and roof? Cos at the moment the actual cylinder part, the walls and the fence are all seperate. If thats the case, then I totally understand where you're coming from. Originally, the cylinder part in terms of the flooring and roof were seperate, but I joined together in blender because i thought it would be logical to merge them as one for the material.
  10. Thanks so much for clarifying that! It seems from your description, I uploaded as a linkset. I also tried to join them in blender apart from the doors and uploaded that too but didn't change the physics mesh and still had that problem. I'll have a dig in your youtube playlist to see if I can get it working that way. But as for your recommendation was that method two, to upload all 3 as a single mesh and link them inworld? I like the sound of method one however.
  11. Isn't that just the outline of the mesh rather than the bounding box? This is setting it in the viewport display on the object: https://gyazo.com/1c8d0bc96b77ad5d9e3afe42805de4c2
  12. I could give that a shot, thanks. I think in the Z-axis i wanna say the bounding box might be of by like 0.1 or something minute. Also in 2.8 it looks like they got rid of the bounding box viewport So have to set the bounding box in the viewport display for each object
  13. Oooh yes please! If you can give any pointers that would be awesome, as I would love to take them into the next project with a better idea of what to do next time https://www.dropbox.com/s/qy36wwmugs90ik2/physics_model.blend?dl=0
  14. Yeah, sorry I haven't been exposed to many, but I've only seen from the most popular furniture brands, that have uploaded it as one so I always had the impression that that was the "way to do it". I guess there isn't necessarily a large bank of "best practices" that I've seen so far, so I went into the project with not real sort of planning and now feeling the repercussions of it now.
  15. Sorry, what do you mean by a linkset, is this meaning, a merge of the mesh in blender and uploaded into SL or is this uploading it in pieces, then selecting it all and placing it back into the inventory so when the user takes it out, it comes out as one rather in pieces?
