  1. In filing an AR many years ago I included the chat log. The Linden that got back to me told me that technically I had violated the ToS by giving THEM, the Linden employee who had read a server log to verify things; the chat log...
  2. Actually a much more important set of reasons would be that ban lines don't work very well against avatars but do break vehicles that hit them. Banlines fail 40m above the ground elevation (or about 40, it might be a little more or less, I'm a little fuzzy on that). Go to a parcel with banlines and note that you can fly over them, you can even land on the top of them. You can then talk to or otherwise harass anyone on that parcel - including someone under the 40m that you can't reach. Now drive a vehicle next to the edge of them and collide into them - easy to do by accident. Most vehicles will 'break' - their scripts get shut off. - So it fails at privacy but can be a source of having vehicles get stuck all around your plot, sometimes stuck in mid air over your land. Security Orbs have neither of these problems. And you can code or configure them for various times to warn and to work at any desired elevation - such as a skybox. Personally I feel that someone who can't figure out how to use their security orb shouldn't be allowed to use a keyboard... but that said... it shouldn't be hard to walk someone through it if there's confusion... and once they know how to use it they'll have a lot less issues and better security than with banlines.
  3. It's pretty easy to just copy the shape dial settings from one shape file to another. That said, I find the 'default included shapes' for just about every product that so includes such to be absolutely horrible messes. Exaggerated features COMBINED with bad understanding of anatomy. Basically Picasso as done by a 5 year old... so it's usually best to make one on your own - with some real world visual along side it, or a set of rulers to get anatomy "known" so any exaggeration can be done with controlled purpose rather than by chance.
  4. TMP has the best bosom, but Belleza is about 99.90357% as good... That said, the crotch on TMP is the worst on the market... no model definition at all - not even an indentation. Barbie level of detail. I am of the opinion that the body on Belleza is otherwise better, but then again I'm kinda known for being biased towards Belleza.
  5. My shape dials actually do have Bouyancy and Cleavage. Then in the Physics I can mess with Gravity and Mass. So I'm not sure what we're asking for here... ps: If you want even more 'sag', get "Natural Breast Enhancer" off of Marketplace. It will make a lot of clothing deform, but is great for achieving the effect when topless.
  6. I have to wonder who will trust this brand again?
  7. Great spot but as a Liberal I am on the opposite political end of the spectrum from my Libertarian neighbor and I'd rather not have a place in a parcel where we're putting up rival 'your views are evil' signs... http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Horizons Triton/228/68/24 It is protected on 3 and 1/4 sides. A small part of the 4th side is also protected - half of the "wall" I put on the top of the image. Here's the "lets turn the ground blue so you can see the spot" view: If you look on the right you can see the 4 gray squares that are inside the lot - I put those there so I could have perfect driving onto and off of the lot. As in, this is one of 2 parcels I have found on this continent where you can be level with the road and have no sidewalk blocking your access. I am not sure of price on this plot. If it interests you, take a look around, and make me an offer - and if it's one that I feel is right, I'll sell it to you. I'm looking to relocate to elsewhere on the continent but I'm not rushed. Even if I abandoned the lot I would not be able to lower my tier - this was basically bought with the 'remainder' of my tier and used for some odd experimental 'XXX' builds... http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Horizons Triton/228/68/24
  8. Fully 100% in the water: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Keroo/216/57/22 Selling this. It is at the mouth of the river. Right side is protected. 9000L Boundary is the 4 posts I put there to show it (those 4 posts are a 1/4 meter inside the lot): This view shows the owned part: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Keroo/216/57/22
  9. Angel Rock, Sinful Curves, Lumiya, QUEENZ, and others missing - because not everyone is a white girl. Lumiya - I use that for a green orc. Also use them for some elf and fairy variations. Angel Rock - pretty much THE BRAND for African skin tones. But QUEENZ is another brand that has some offerings. Sinful Curves - these are Caucasian skin tones but the 'Amelia' one tends to work unusually well for Asian and LatinX looks. Now if they had an Omega applier... my whole rant about "why is everything in here so 'Ethnic' white' would be silly... They could effectively pass the buck for their ethnocentrism by letting me solve for it. ...but without it... Well, if you shop at a brand better known for less 'Euro Ethnic' looks... you're out of luck. Proving yet again that in 2019... SL is still doing it like it was 1954... Resulting in me, instead of being glad that there's a product out there - getting mad at yet another sign of the institutionalized ingrained bias of 'ignorance'. Just... Do... An... Applier... All F-ing ready... The skin around it after all... is going to need to match right - so it SHOULD use the same UV map as the base avatar as even a perfect tone, it's too high resolution, will look off. So that part can be Omega... And yes... it means you will 'out' several skim makers who don't actually know where a woman's bits are located... (this is an unusually common problem)... but at least the ones who do will look good.
  10. Not much really. Go grab a game that has them, usually there's a hook offer to let you open some initial ones for free. So do that and look at what's inside. Everything in there has some value to somebody... it's just that most of it is of extremely low value to most people and very common. The only difference here is that Gatchas tend to be transferable and we're allowed to do that for a price. In most lootbox scenarios, the person with 999 red gloves, is stuck with all of them. You mentioned trading card games... gatchas have more in common with TCGs than lootboxes due to the 'trade' aspect. But that is also the only difference. However that difference is vitally important... Even if nobody actually wants one of those red gloves...
  11. MP is full of old gatchas for sale at rock bottom prices... My own MP listing is full of them... Every 6-12 months I got back and reduce the prices again... - If I got 999 red gloves, so did you and everyone else...
  12. I almost always buy my gatcha goods second hand off marketplace. I get exactly what I wanted, and somebody else wasted $50,000L getting 999 copies of the red gloves... The merchant still wins though... so in actuality I try to avoid gatchas - because whether you buy it first hand or second hand, you're training a merchant to keep making them. I do still have a good number of them... but not as many as I could have if I let my impulses drive this. And I actually find that for many merchants it is often their worst stuff that ends up in a gatcha. Best looking for the rare... but the tech on the items is often subpar. Bad LOD so it triangles at more than 0.01m away, high land impact, outdated scripts they bought from an old kit rather than using more up-to-date lower lag scripting, or full of max-resolution textures so it causes your house to start texture-thrashing after you have a few of them... - Gatchas are made in a rush, and made to look good at the gatcha event or in the advert image close up... but often subpar in usage. Exceptions exist, but many of them are the 'cheap goods sold in the shops by the tourist venue'... I am from San Francisco... I got wise about buying goods on the main blocks of China Town, Pier 39/Fisherman's Wharf, and Golden Gate Bridge when I was a kid... You buy stuff a few block away if in that neighborhood at all... Don't buy Gatchas anymore than you buy T-shirts outside that famous museum... - meaning you might have a few, but it shouldn't become your whole wardrobe... It's basically mass-produced junk goods.
  13. Where is the character from the movie "Misery" when you need her?
  14. Yeah that. I use the high end of the breast settings for Belleza and a good number of people put out stuff using 'guessed the rigging' creator kits for the body because Belleza has at times been very stingy about handing out creator kits (even more of this with older Maitreya stuff - if I remember right for the first 2-3 years Maitreya wasn't giving out creator kits at all. Only people with special agreements got them. I just assume now anyone and their dog can get a kit given how common Maitreya stuff is now... but a LOT of older stuff breaks if you dial a little bit away from 50). So since both Belleza and Maitreya have not been fast about giving out fitting kits, there is a LOT of stuff for sale that was somebody's "best guess" and if your shape dial or physics are too far from the designers - it breaks. To see this in action you can get some full perm kits from "a very large store that sells very cheap fullperm items who's creator's last name begins with 'I'"... get some of the early fitted kits and turn up your shape dials and put on some super bouncy physics. Then get any kit put out in the last 2 years... the newer stuff fits like a charm, the older stuff is a gamble. Somebody basically finally got an official kit. And of course... the older stuff happens to coincide with the 'oops' period for Belleza... the year Maitreya came out, Belleza locked its creator kit for that year and the year after... giving Maitreya a 2 year head start on fitmesh... Belleza did this because they were working on making the 'Freya' and 'Isis' bodies and had planned to discontinue 'Venus'... so they didn't want bad stuff out there... but the delay severely hurt the body's popularity... - and led to the rise of a LOT of people making home-guessed fittings... some of which are still in use... (and it also wasn't the last time Belleza locked down handing out kits... but the second one was "ONLY" about a year long... see 'cone of shame' meme-pic above...)
  15. I just use for fit. I can tell from looking at the item if I'm going to like it, and I know everything will look different in different windlight settings - but I find a LOT of people are sloppy about the fit on certain areas - not accounting for it actually being fitmesh and someone having sliders outside the range they presume... Most of what I buy is from fullperms shops anyway - and I retexture. The typical 'fatpack' has about the same price as the typical fullperm kit, except the second one comes with mod permissions... so it's better.
