  1. I'm going to have to test that, as I use a number of linked together items in my builds. My current theory would have to do with bounding box physics. If the linked items complicating the math of determining where objects are for collision purposes. When you edit things you can set all but the root prim of any linkset to type 'none'. If my theory is right - then doing this would reduce the 'perception of lag'. Obviously that's not the workable solution - but any item in the linkset that doesn't need to be solid could be set to type none IF this works...
  2. My judgementalism is sparked by repeatedly seeing people judgmentally blame the wrong sources... Most often the lindens getting blamed... but I have seen this blame directed at "anybody but me" all to often as well... It gets further aggravated when people are told how to fix something and openly state things like "I will wear what I want to because it doesn't effect me personally, SL is just laggy because of false things that I incorrectly believe and not because of my choices that are all bad..." There is ignorance - which is just not knowing. And there is stupidity - whi
  3. I've always assumed this was a made up fear for TV shows so they could have a phobia to give characters without insulting any real world demographics. Though I suppose there are real people who have this - I also suspect they didn't exist until some TV show triggered the notion that it was something one could fear in them, and existing stress/anxiety found a target.
  4. No. It's not. People in this "game" are running bloatware viewers like Firestorm, using art quality 3D models that are hundreds of thousands to millions of polygons. Most 'games' are in the low tens of thousands. The worst offenders are popular mesh bodies like Legacy and Belleza, and some hair brands. It's insane. It's also not needed. Bodies like Regallia have proven you can have the same quality of animation, shape response, and clothing fit on as little as 30,000 triangles. Other furry brands have shown similar or even better optimized results. Regallia is a "furry
  5. Before going down that path you should stop and think about why someone would rent a plot there from you? Do they even need land? Why does someone need land? Are you sure about your reason? How can you address it for them? If they need land, why would they not just get their own? What is special about yours that they can't get on their own? Your question just reads like you don't have a business plan yet - and that's a very fast way to lose a lot of money. Almost ALL people that "rent" land in SL to think about even these most basic questions... so their plots
  6. The perfect storm of western bias reflecting back upon itself. Before 2020 - face coverings and turbans were the western world's "mark of shame" against mostly Islamic countries (which is darkly funny as Turbans are worn by Rastafarians and Sikh, but not generally by Islamic people). A lot of this 'anti-mask' panic is likely driven from a trained reaction to hate anyone wearing something veil-like. Some EU countries even going as far as criminalizing face-coverings under the dog-whistle of 'secularism' to hate what was really hatred / bias. People have used th
  7. They are literally trolling us now. 😉
  8. I distinctly recall Apple Fall having a 'these are the last gatchas we will ever sell' sale about a year ago. Is this like the furniture store I used to live across the street from that had a 'Going out of business clearance sale' for about 5 years straight? To-topic I would need to think, but I find 'what's next' and Apple Fall products often work well in the same space. Theme depending - Sometimes the exact opposite is true as Apple Fall feels like 'New England' to me and What's Next feels like "this is the stuff a boomer grew up with" - which sometimes means London or San F
  9. This is a good point. When you shop dances - at higher end brands you will often see information on the actual dancer that did the motion capture performance. Some even link to the social media of that dancer so you can see them in action. Some shops even link to videos of them doing the motion capture. That's not always final proof of a good end product - but it's a heavy weight towards quality. - Look for that kind of information when shopping for dance brands. There are huge catalogs of free and discount dances out there... this is why so many of the clubs you go to ha
  10. Quality dances do tend to be expensive - so Akeyo's price for a loaded up AO is likely not that high once you consider what's in it. I didn't like how large the scripts in some of these things are. Not sure how big Akeyo is now, back when they first went to that web thing it was over 3mbs and using a huge amount of script time - enough that some regions gave me warnings on teleporting. I put a FREE chat based AO out a few months back. It's on my marketplace. You put the dances and the script and a config notecard into any editable prim you are wearing or have as a HUD (I keep
  11. Second company has a likely vaccine coming, this time up to 95% effective: https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Moderna-s-coronavirus-vaccine-found-to-be-nearly-15729945.php
  12. 20-year old reggae star from the Solomon Islands, Rosie Delmah, on a cover of 'If you gonna lie': I suspect most of us forget that nation even exists and don't know it's part of Oceania. Here she is again with Jamaican singer Conkarah - they've been working together since 2015; A lot of her stuff is covers - hoping to find more of her original work.
  13. My groups were fixed when they made that post saying fixed... But today they started acting up. Mostly back to fixed but I noticed I can't see the chat in my own private land group (not that I need to... but my alt can see what I type I can't see what I or the alt types...). So... Still got issues I guess.
  14. Lover's Rock (Romance Reggae) day, with this 73 minute mix: - some of these are really old tunes in the genre. (that thumbnail should be solid clickbait for the guys 😉 ).
  15. My lineage has suffered the consequences of other people's political opinions too many times for me to take them as just that. I'm part Indigineous South American. It was a politcal opinion that our lives and lands were fair game because we were not European. It was in my lifetime a political opinion that were too many of us in Peru so the government forcibly sterilized women in the very regions my family comes from - the Amazon rainforest highlands above the Inca Valley that foreign tourists love so much. I'm part Chinese - and a political opinion chased us out of Asia, and is now t
  16. 'monster' yes - it's an opinion that racists running ethnic concentration camps are monsters. But 'clear winner' no. Stating simple facts is hardly baiting.
  17. You can detect based on 'Arc' - a number of lag meters do it, including the one I sell. Almost none of them let you sort or ban by it though - because Arc is a metric that is almost completely divorced from reality. I only put it on my meter because people who buy those meters expect to see it, but I then added comments about how pointless it was... Oddly, they never updated this function to test complexity instead. But... given that complexity is completely hackable... that's not a major loss. It's fascinating to view SL with Niran's Dragon Viewer and the show complexity option on. He re
  18. I get that the conversation this... of all things and advertisement... is making... is what people want to be addressing when they talk about appropriation: But it's not where they go. The accusation of Appropriation seems to be a distraction from getting to the real issue - which I think the video above goes directly to. And it's a dangerous distraction - because accusations of appropriation instead of trying to get us to actually love each other, try to put us into different spaces / corners. That's not just dangerous to mixed people like me - it's dangerous to every
  19. Considering how Jake is starting to not be supported by mesh heads (Lelutka as of now, might happen to more soon) - this seems foolish. NOT because Lelutka chose to stop Belleza Support - but because Belleza hasn't had an update in so long supporting it would just introduce problems into the current head and they wanted to focus their rigging on the new standard all other bodies have moved to... And Legacy male... I was shocked when I looked into it lag-wise. That body should be banned from the grid... AR'able as an abuse of region resources. Sadly, a fate Belleza Female might also need t

  21. Triangle Counts: Gianni Body + Hands and Feet (demo): 161,370 Belleza Jake 2.0: 179,961 Adam v2: 84,216 Legacy Male (demo): 401,906 !!! Adam is the best optimized - not even sure if the brand is still in business because I got him that so long ago. Legacy Male is WTF land... The other two are similar and if Gianni is good I will put that on my 'to buy' list. Belleza Female btw is 521,287 triangles - that's your queen of lag right there. Much as I love the body, she's got so many onion layers on her it makes me cry... Hope we get an update that rem
  22. Actually that solves my concerns pretty well. I think I'll re-demo gianni on my alt and do a lot more shape dial tweaking than I had been doing. 🙂
