  1. The only reason I wasn't super into that idea, is because of the need to 'pull over in a rez zone'.. and of course then having to contend with "oh no, we were here longer than 10 minutes, the boat derezed because no one was sitting on it anymore". Rezzing out a cuddle blanket, or other piece of furniture specifically for that purpose, works okay.. but, it's not an ideal solution, and only works when over land with more forgiving autoreturn and rezzing rights (which most ocean space in SL, isn't.)
  2. Frustratingly, I've been around most of the options several times before. I guess the Linden Premium Freebe kind of spoiled me a bit. For this decision, it came down to trying to find the closest match to all my wants. A robust, detailled mesh build, with good quality. I wanted something that 'felt like a real place'. Lots of animations, and the ability to adjust the positions. (I'm short, there's a number of kids in my family.. adjusting is key) Some romantic "PG+" animations. Cuddles, smooches, that sort of thing. Room for at least 6. A long, slender design. Excellent, modern vehicle con
  3. I've had a few sailboats in my time in SL, but most of them have been freebies. The one I've really liked most though, was the "Linden Premium Gift" boat. I find the controls, and the mechanical aspects of the boat to be fantastic, but the mesh is crude in some places, and the animation engine (and animations) leave a lot to be desired for me. The best part about the Linden boat is simply how it moves, how you can 'set the wind' on the hud, and just let the boat go for a while, without constantly mashing down "W" to keep moving. It's a graceful, peaceful ride. But on a vehi
  4. You can also include a URL in the text of the group notice. Many (if not all) Viewers will make such links clickable. Linking people to a blog post (for example) can be an easy solution to this situation.. and on your blog you can have both the full text, and any images you want as well. I know in some advertising groups where commercial announcements are permitted, very often the notice will have a link to a new item's blog post, or a link to the item's marketplace listing, and then a notecard attached to the notice. Inside the notecard may be images, and attached inworld landmarks as well.
  5. The maximum uploadable image size is 1024x1024. When skins and clothing layers are composited by the server (Baking) the output file that is sent to the viewers is only 512x512. Every avatar you see (that is wearing system skins/clothing layers) is made up of a 512x512 head, a 512x512 torso, and a 512x512 legs texture.. maximum. Use the 1024x1024 avatar templates.. that's really all the detail you're likely to need. These are the most helpful ones I've found: Robin Wood's UV Templates
  6. It's part of the same animation that holds your hands up in a cameralike position when you take the shot, and the sound that plays when the picture is taken. It's like a 'System Gesture" that everyone has loaded.. unless you use the "Quiet Snapshots to Disk" feature and take snapshots directly to your HD (COMMAND-`).
  7. jordanit0, I am also experiencing the same problem, with an added twist. A number of items are listed for me to switch the item listing to.. but none of them are the newly uploaded 'updated version' of the item I'm selling. Edit: It seems that hitting the "Sync Marketplace with Magic Boxes" button did the trick for me. http://i.imgur.com/8EmEXBS.png I pressed it, waited a couple of minutes then opened a fresh browser tab with the item listing I wanted to change, click the "Edit Associated Object" button, and voila, the new version was listed in the pile of items.
  8. Mesh hair is awesome, and it's really unleashed a lot of creativity amonth the hair makers, but I'm finding a huge amount of the more recent hair offerinhs seem to be, well.. long. I'd really love to find some shorter, "sassier" hairstyles. I'd love to find something like this: http://i.imgur.com/YUQ4Z2z.pngor this: http://i.imgur.com/euwOERl.pngor this: http://i.imgur.com/q1ZLOZq.pngthis: http://i.imgur.com/HbDicqY.pngOr even this: http://i.imgur.com/PRB4zXm.pngAny suggestions?

This right here is why I stopped working as a dancer. The whole control freak "we own you" attitude really turned me off. It's also why I won't help club owners make profit splitting tipjars. Back when I did it, we all rezzed our own tipjars, and we used to give a portion of our tips to the club, but it was all voluntary and on the honor system.. and if you couldn't afford it, it wasn't a big thing. We were a team,

  12. Also, just check to make sure you're wearing 1 skin, 1 shape, 1 'hair layer' and 1 'eyes layer'. Sometimes the system can forget what skin, or eyes, or 'hair layer' you were wearing.. and if you're not wearing all four "Body Parts", the system doesn't know how to render you properly. If you are wearing all 4 body parts, try replacing them. The hair layer especially.
  13. I seem to be having the same problem. Looks like it's account specific, as my main account can't log in, but my alt can. This looks like the type of thing that LL will post about in an hour saying "Unexpected login maintenance, some users may be unable to login, please refrain from rezzing no-copy items" etc. In other words, it's time to take a break, watch a movie, or just relax for a while and try again later. Edit: You know, I did check grid status, repeatedly.. before posting, and I certainly didn't see any mention of the issue. There's something weird about that site, I think they
  14. I'm assuming that you're looking for the "Camera Angle" slider that used to be present in the Preferences. There are some contols for this on the "Move and View" tab of Preferences, but most of these older controls were moved to debug settings. Accessing these can be a little complicated. Penny Patton goes into great detail of the process in a step-by-step fashion on her blog: http://pennycow.blogspot.com/2012/01/improving-sl-camera-short-version.html The settings she outlines will allow you to raise or lower the third-person follow-cam, as well as change it's default distance from you, and

Why is that? common, make it a lot easier by just accepting paypal... Or are there other ways to pay instead of a creditcard? These are the payment methods currently accepted by Linden Lab: I highly reccomend reading the whole knowledge base article. http://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-
