  1. That's what the documentation says. But on group owned land it was still able to teleport people home without being deeded. It does need to be owned by someone in the group with 'eject' powers I believe. I've yet to test it with an alt lacking such to see if I've found a bug... What got me motivated here was the realization of how 'bloated' the orbs I've been working with are... but also... I just wanted to show the 'under the hood' of this whole topic. I personally feel the best solution would be to limit "llTeleportAgentHome" so that it can ONLY be called from inside of '
  2. It's a big continent so yeah. In my experience non-Asians 'sharpen or slant' the eyes too much and make the opening too small. Though again it is a big continent so there are people with that look. Yet with the folks I've grown up around and the community I now live in - people tend to have what to my eyes look like larger eyes than Caucasians (many Caucasians seem to have 'small beady eyes' to me, and when I start seeing this I have to remind myself it's only because I'm looking for it and mentally exaggerating it...) Often but not always Asians will have less angular faces than Cau
  3. I decided to get rid of the old security orb I used by a company no longer in SL that... took about 1mb of script memory to use between two objects (a configure box and an ejector box. The ejector being deeded to group on group land). I wrote this tiny script, that does NOT need to be deeded to group unless you also want to ban people: list approvedNames = [ "Governor Linden", "Pussycat Catnap" ]; integer findApprovedName(string thisPerson) { if (llListFindList(approvedNames, [thisPerson]) != -1) { return TRUE; } else return FALSE; } testMemory(
  4. Content no. But SL is so random in regions. Most skin and body shops are on G land - with fully nude models or screenshots present on many of them... and I've seen many house and vehicle shops on A land... I imagine if I was a child avatar looking for something like a 'Paris loft skybox'... I might easily find myself on an A plot, since the one I actually do own was sold on such a plot... It can get weird all through no intent of the end user at all... there you are looking at skyboxes on your child avatar and me on my nude neko TPs in because I'm shopping for
  5. Anything above 0 is too much time for any situation in which you actually want a person removed.
  6. We've got topics on music and video, but not on reading. So... what are folks reading. List your item, a brief bit on it, and put it into a category such as 'history', 'political science', 'technical manual', 'fiction; poetry', 'fiction: fantasy', etc... Not that anyone ever follows thread suggested rules here - but lets keep 'news', 'blog', 'daily article', and other 'hyper current shorts' out of this thread, they should have their own thread - but they are likely to also lead their topic into being quickly locked... And yes, I am one of those most well known for liking to pos
  7. You may have just turned off your visibility of it: - it's there at the bottom of the image.
  8. Perhaps. But the entire rest of your post is basically an article about why they should stay in Bellisseria... Mainland just needs a tiny bit of rules. Not a lot, not even the full yet still tiny Bellisseria covenant... but something other than anarchy.
  9. ha ! how do y'all organise that ?? It's the 26,334th folder that does the trick. 😛 On your search for a new avatar setup. Many will tell you the advice I'm giving now will just make it more confusing. But get this wrong now and it's just going to cost you later... these are the 'fundamentals' of finding the right goods: Do everything with your 'LOD' setting turned DOWN to 2.5. If daring try even 2. but 2.5 is good enough to see what stuff will break when cammed out and is thus shoddy goods. - any CSR or merchant notecard says to set it to 4 or more, th
  10. I edited this into my last post but gonna make it it's own post also... What it would need here to prevent abuse of teleporting home is a function tracinf. You would make the teleport home function ONLY work if it's immediate calling function was from llSensor's response function, sensor, and NOT from any other method. If it was called from anywhere other than 'sensor' inside the 'default' it would just not work. Once so called, it would check the location of the avatar and if that avatar was closer then 1m from the parcel edge, also fail (why? To prevent teleports of people that dri
  11. Now go compare those same prices not to a 2D phone game, but the 'cash shops' of games like World of Warcraft, Elder Scrolls Online, Guild Wars 2, and Finaly Fantasy XIV. - You will find that SL is now, often cheaper for most things (clothes, animations, housing decor, avatar props), weirdly more for others (name change). You're essentially saying photoshop costs too much because look at the price of my kid's coloring books... but those things are not equivalent.
  12. It's basically 100% flat out illegal. See all the laws on the DMCA, and well... Copyright laws going back way before that also. Also... ripping the models themselves might also be illegal in some jurisdictions - anywhere where violating a ToS / EULA is illegal. There have been numerous efforts by industry to make violating a TOS illegal. Sometimes as a major felony involving sentences that make murder seem less serious... in a few places they have even managed to get those laws enacted... and when you go to fight the legitimacy of that law... consider how which lawyers & lobbyist
  13. Examine the re-delivery choices. If the inworld option isn't using CasperVend... it's almost always better to buy on Marketplace as so many other vendor systems come and go and when they go, they take everyone's re-delivery option with them...
  14. This is actually the example where I would be for a restriction. I would like it if an orb that scans on the parcel value - could not use teleport home. That said, these are different LSL functions and LSL is not the most sophisticated language - so making the teleport function aware of how it got the key value it's suppossed to teleport would be... difficult... (*) and without a major revision to LSL, someone could just hack it away by passing the key through a second or third function first... Convert it to a string, add a silly word on the end, pass it to function 3 that remo
  15. There are two LSL functions to teleport someone to a specific place, but they have to give permission. One teleports to the location of a landmark it's given, the other to a set of global coordinates (a SLURL basically). - You can see this function in common use in the HUDs that people use to get into monthly events that are crowded (spamming a teleport faster than a human can, in hopes of hitting teleport before someone else does once a spot opens up).
  16. Yes. I am very specific about my use. First my intention is to have a space where if it gets invaded, people are gone before I even know they are there. Then, I want to make it as clear as I can BEFORE someone gets there, that the space is private. To that end yes - a solid prim at a very out of the way elevation. If you fly up or into it, you just hit the edge of it and no harm to you. From the inside it's invisible because it's a single huge prim - so the texture on it only shows to the outside world. I put it way up there so people don't see that "visual blight" from the grou
  17. Here's the takeaway: The TL:DR is it's over - if you aren't Tesla, you've got no chance. For the layperson who just thinks of stickers and nothing more, that $25k car will do it. But the real reason is that 4680 battery and... using table salt to make batteries out of lithium lying ALL OVER THE GROUND all over the US southwest... cutting out the 'rare earth elements' aspect.
  18. Hopefully so yeah. Banlines are a major scourge of mainland, and it's a major part of the value of Bellisseria that it doesn't generally have them.
  19. Yep. I'm one of that quarter. I see no point in a security orb on my linden home. I DO tend to keep one in the skybox on mainland - where I set it to police ONLY the inside of the box. - and again don't bother with one at ground. I think it's best to discourage their use - so making it something you need to dig through your stuff to find and then use is best. If there was a way to make all orbs in Bellisseria cost 10x their current land impact - I'd be for it. Even if to do it it also applied to mainland. I'd be willing to suffer that cost for the one in my mainland skybo
  20. I want to say a houseboat in Lolipop midway down the bottom pier that bordered the region south of it, not yet released at the time. I'm not sure that was my first though - I think my first was actually a camper... somewhere...
  21. I use a day cycle unless I'm taking a specific image. My builds in SL all use lights with my own scripts designed to light up the space when it's dark and an avatar is present in the parcel. My screenshots where I pick a specific time of day lighting are just as likely to use my 3pm setting as they are to use my 3am one with an added spotlight or 3. (some of the best lighting works by using 3 spotlights strategically - which is how I do shoots in tools like Daz3d, and sometimes try to recreate with SL.) A backlight, blend light, and focus light.
  22. In Jamaica this is referred to as a Riddim. Riddims occur when singer all record their own songs to essentially the same music - which can often start as an instrumental. Some of them will make some changes to that music, some will just use new lyrics. The results can be dramatic either way. It began as a way to reduce costs of studio musicians, but it's become something of a tradition and a great way for established artists to help lift up their junior peers. Put out a riddim album with some famous singers, and all the minor ones also get some boosted exposure, and some of those wil
  23. The Kingsmen version had a lot of mishaps during the recording, and one of them yells out a profanity when he dropped his drumsticks in mid recording. The incoherent singing is because the lead singer was a kid with braces on... For some odd reason... somebody kept the recording and released it rather than trash it as was supposed to happen. And even odder still... of all the 1000 versions ever made of it, that is the version that went globally famous. After all, the original version was written by a guy in LA who heard a Jamaican on the radio while sitting on the toilet, grabbed a roll,
