  1. I demo'd Angel Rock on that very head a few days ago and they work pretty well together. Just a little bit of overlap in one spot - because Angel Rock makes their skins for Catwa only these days. That said - you've basically rejected the two good brands, so not really help I can think of at this point.
  2. It Girls. That's the brand you want to investigate. It's actually the brand they use in a lot of their product images. Well, in that case I dunno. You could try Angle Rock, but I personally find their skins often are a bit ashy: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/76460
  3. As Regalia shows, on around 30,000 triangles total you can get the same detail as these other bodies do. Upping triangle count doesn't help Jack from Jill... it just boosts lag, slows down rendering, and actually slows down animation of those 'wonderful breast details' you note because there's so much more math to do to figure out where each polygon goes and how light and other things will affect each polygon... What counts... Is triangle placement - angle, position, and grouping, such that the 'lines' and edges of polygons best match with how something will deform, making the m
  4. Some forms of inventory manipulation have no confirmation popups on them. It's very easy to accidentally click something and drag it to the inside of another folder without ever seeing that you had even selected it. My preferred viewer also recently had a bug that was moving some of the inventory into the 'lost and found' folder - so there's always the possibility of bugs and glitches. So... Use the field for searching your inventory and see if the thing you're looking for got 'moved' somehow. It happens, and if the cache solution above doesn't fix things, try this next.
  5. And in this new utopian world of the "ministry of cultural purity and proper ethnic conduct standards"; where do I as a mix raced person go? Got a gas chamber somewhere for me to report to for not being 'OK' enough by the very fact of my genetic existence? I know you think you're not in that dark space I outline... but what is the endgame of this mission of stamping out cultural turf for everyone to fit into? That endgame is 'cultural puritanism'... and it's a very dark space to be in. Multiculturalism was a thing for a reason. We need to be coming together no
  6. It's mod. In the furry world everything is always mod. There's about a gazillion kits out there to swap pieces in or out. The sad thing is, ALL of that can be done with a low triangle count and well optimized scripts. Except for the parts of your quote that I put a strikethrough - because those are the things they expect that are actually bad... and don't need to be there... Human AV users are getting ripped off by developers that don't understand optimizing content. 'BOM' was basically LLs saying "OMG WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU NOOBS, here, please at least do this..." It was
  7. This is because it's not just about triangle density - but also placement. Back in the Daz3D art world I remember this kind of conversation over the 'Vicky' model that eventually became the basis of their 'generation models'. Early versions had some points like that kept deforming. Other 3D modelers that got the model started showing wireframes with various lines and arrows drawn showing how triangles placed at the wrong angles or in the wrong spots were causing it to bend improperly. The result is that in future releases, slowly over time, Daz fixed these issues as they came to ligh
  8. Oh yeah. I just meant it a problem for someone with a human look wanting to use it. They'd have to deal with the pawed feet and wouldn't be able to use their skins. And I suspect you're right - the maker of, if not a profesional, at least understood optimizing for 'real time graphics' in a manner similar to game developers. A lot few triangles placed only where they are needed for good animation / shaping and not just 'thrown in to fill up density'... This thing was actually optimized. Is it the best that could be? I don't know - I am not a game graphics developer. BUT I
  9. Triangle counts are facts. You can look at this fiasco yourself in wireframe mode.
  10. They used to do that. Assorted new user islands full of "helpful" people. The problem is that anytime the paid staff logged out or looked to the side, the griefers logged in and took up the challenge... This is of course, a trivially easy problem to deal with... ... ...for a company with even a modest understanding of community management and engagement. But SL was founded by 'libertarian utopia' sorts who... don't think through what happens when ideals meet reality (this is true of all 'utopia ideologies', be the this, that, or the other ism...). So they j
  11. Wait... MAINsplaining? Not mansplaining? Is mainsplaining when folks from mainland talk all over estate and rental box people like they need to explain the world to those noobs?
  12. /sigh... It will but it shouldn't. The best mesh body I have seen in the past few years is Regalia. Silly low triangle count. super low script impact. And it can wear the clothes of Belleza, Maitreya, Legacy, Slink, and a few more... It just has 2 problems: It comes with paws instead of feet - yep, it's a furry body meant for people who want to wear ANY brand of human clothes. It uses it's own UV map - which was completely unnecessary as UV map is not linked to triangles, etc. After all everyone else is using a UV map from 1999... So
  13. Ya'll had me for a bit there. Belleza plans to make a mesh head, and I was wondering if I had missed it coming out. It's one of those "soon" things... and Belleza's notion of "soon" makes Linden Lab look fast. To the original poster. Now that you have a skin and not a head... if that skin is in a skin tone that still matches to the mesh body... you'll want to make sure the head you do buy once you buy a head supports 'BOM'. - Mosy brands do these days, so that should be easy to deal with. But basically... wear the skin before you demo heads, and if it shows up on the heads when
  14. I don't know if this is still true... But a quirk in SL 'back in the day' was that every avatar in your camera range got a report from you and had to send one back to you about what you were each downloading... The result being that a way to 'subtlety grief' people is to ramp up your draw distance so they're stuck downloading all kinds of stuff... Is this still true or was it slightly different from that in how it worked? I've seen it often stated for a reason why it's bad to have too high of a draw distance.
  15. Today's pet peeve: My home region keeps crashing / being reset. Multiple times a day for the past month. There are only 5 parcels here, and usually only 1 or 2 people on the region at a time. What gives... Somebody cut it out with the reset button... THIRD time today...
  16. Appropriation is a subject that kinda really ticks me off. I'm multiracial, very very very very mixed - and I don't look like 'any' "race". My very act of breathing is an act of cultural appropriation against somebody... Who's culture should I follow? I don't look like any of them enough to pass somebody's test... In my life I have at times gone 5 feet this way and been abused for not acting 'this enough', and then another five feet and been abused for stealing something from that very culture I was just called out by the first person over... Screw the lot of them, single-m
  17. When I lived in Korea, the most popular T-shirt among a lot of friends and people on the street said "My Boyfriend is in the Arny" Being from San Francisco; I always just figured Arny was just a really popular guy who got a lot of action in the barracks. (splitting the humor post I made apart from the rant one that follows)
  18. I listen to music based on the message in the lyrics. Not the singer and sometimes not even the music style. So for me the question is just not relevant. For me, something like this is perfection: - and if you're looking at vocals, what's key here is that it's a duet. So much of Jamaican music features two singers who swap between each other. In this case you have a generation gap as well - so each speaks from very different experiences. (the song is Koffee's newest hit, and this is Buju joining her in a remix, so she has most of the airtime in this one.)
  19. Racist snowflakes get triggered out of their safe spaces very easily It would have been interesting to see if the responses would have been different if the OP had asked for more variety in choices without referring to skin tone. I suspect the outrage would not have existed. There might still have been some "they do it that way because of this" responses, but the tone would have almost certainly been more polite...
  20. Tesla customers in the UK will literally get paid by the government for solar energy they generate for their own homes:
  21. The most common flaws of a system head are the lines around the nose / upper lip and the 'dead eyes glaring stare' of female heads. - You can use a skin or makeup to conceal the nose lines. It's less visible in darker skins so I was able to go a while without switching when I had a dark African tone from Angle Rock. - You can sometimes dial away the 'eyes glaring at you' look, but it's rare to succeed here. It might help to use prim eyes with an unusual texture and some built in added animation to them. As others note - you really just want to not give up on mesh heads ye
