  1. Ya I've been like that for a long time now. Not because I can't get in, but because the grid has changed so much since I was last in that I can't even really get used to it. I'd literally have to start from scratch. All of my notecards, clothing, landmarks...they're all pretty much defunct. Everywhere I tp I end up underwater when I'm expecting something entirely different, lol. But I still love joining in conversations.
  2. I remember you from this forum actually (maybe in its old incarnation) because your name is unforgettable and used to make me laugh in a great way. It's cute. I'm not here very often and haven't really been in SL consistently since 2008 but if someone asks if they're remembered there's no way I can know the answer is yes and leave them with silence so... Of COURSE you're remembered! And fondly! :matte-motes-shocked:

Do I need to start from scratch, and if so, where do I go to find a body? Thanks! Nine years. Wow, you've got me beat. I just came back in after being gone since '08 only to find Kazami North was gone (my home sim), almost everywhere I used to go was gone so now I end up tp'ing to the bottom of the ocean half the time, and almost none of my gear still fits, most annoyingly my shoes and boots! I miss 2007. Can I get a WayBackMachine ride to Festival Island, GOL3, Caribbean Breezes, and that year's version of Ethereal Teal just once? Pretty please?!

This is called a Bake Fail. Start here: http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/fs_bake_fail I had no doubt it would have changed. My question is did it actually get better. Like truly better. Matter of fact, did rezzing in SL on initial login and rendering an avie get any smoother? I've actually been gone since 2008 or so and have only been in-world twice since then. When I did try to get in, it would take me upwards of 20 mnutes to take off enough stuff and jockey through outfits and attachments in order to get fully rezzed. And then there were wholesale differences in capability and feature support viewer to viewer - I remember tattoo layers being one of those issues, leading me to stick with version 1.x of the Singularity viewer for what was likely far too long. I know everything went to mesh, but with the money I spent on custom skins and shapes, and the fortune I spent on prim clothing and hair between 2007 and late 2008, I just couldn't bring myself to trash most of my inventory and start over because by the end, not much really fit well. I did buy a new shape and skin, and I like it, but I experienced a lot of the same issues last time, especally with half the avie being featureless depending on the viewer used. What viewer works best now and how smooth is the current SL experience?

Simply log off if you can't keep an eye on your avi. Reported for insensitivity to those SL participants who are actually unable to speak. I suggest you choose your words more carefully. There are plenty of synonyms for stupid which are not gratuitously offensive, like idiotic, moronic, unintelligent, ignorant, dense, foolish, slow, simpleminded, vacuous, vapid, imbecilic, obtuse, doltish, thick, dim, half-witted, daft, dozy, cretinous, all of which you might wish to use to describe the OP's "friend" without insulting the vocally impaired. Wow. That's a whole lot of stuff there. While we're on the subject of foreknowledge or preconsideration of the background of other forum members, perhaps a look at the definition of the word "dumb" right underneath the version you've chosen to highlight is in order. Particular attention shoud be paid to the region in which this definition is a longstanding commonality. Considering the number of words used in other regions which have completely different meanings and intensities in America that are almost never accounted for, I would hope that this tendency to demand such nitpicking lest ye be tattled on is an exception rather than a rule. I can think of a word used in Britain to describe a "jerk" which is typically, again in Britain, used by a man talking to another man which if used in America in the presence of a woman will have her and many around hopping mad. I doubt I have to spell it out, but when the average English guy gets checked on that faux pas the reaction that I've gotten many times was for that very same word to be directed AT ME in the very American definition of itself. And, as alluded to earlier, I am in those instances indeed hopping mad. dumb dəm/ adjective adjective: dumb; comparative adjective: dumber; superlative adjective: dumbest 1. offensive (of a person) unable to speak, most typically because of congenital deafness.

So be quiet and stop making us want to hurl with your doe-eyed fan worship. LOL! Wait, you are talking about Lindens? OMFG AHHHHH I LOVE WHEN SOMEONE DOES THAT!!!!! :matte-motes-inlove:

  9. To wear something like these do you have to have an entirely mesh or rigged mesh avatar? Do these work with regular shapes and such? Sorry for my ignorance. I have just returned after being gone since 2010 and know very little about mesh, but got an avie that I love with a rigged mesh head and regular body because it prevents me from having to toss my whole wardrobe. But my bewbs are a bit...stalwart. Stone-like? Okay they don't really move, "much"? I would like something a bit more natural if possible...

Ya that's the way you want to come back alright!

Tis why I don't want to throw away the good things I've collected over the years. I can't just restrict myself to one type and toss everything else. Also started in 2007 and although I have just really come back in world after leaving in 2010, I am the same way. I still have most of my clothing, jewelry, etc that I collected throughout, from many many designers, since I tend to shop on looks rather than staying loyal to any particular designer as well. The real exception would be shoes, where I am still a Stilletto Moody groupie to this day and have multiple pairs to this day. I do it with outfits too, and formalwear. If I like a gown or dress in one color I probably like it in most of the colors it comes in, and I've bought more than one. And with most of my club wear, I do a lot of mixing and matching. Blouses, jeans and whatnot. All the time. It's the whole reason I've gone with a hybrid avie now with rigged mesh head and regular body, so I wouldn't have to clean out my entire existing closet. Because, of course not. No I refuse to!

Now my face appears to have a really strong facelight applied, but the body is completely left out, and it never looks even passable except during broad daylight. There is option in the HUD for the head: Full bright ON/OFF. As you have noticed with full bright ON the head looks ok only in full daylight. To not be like a lighthouse in darker places just turn the full bright OFF from the head via the head HUD. Haha thank you so much. I did actually figure this out after, and this sounds really pathetic, learning that there were more options on the HUD for the avie than I had actually noticed. Wow I wish there were better reasons I dealt with this! :matte-motes-mad:
  13. Veronica Kanya wrote: Hehehe I think with me it's finding people and places to go. I found a cute little blues place last night where people were dancing and having a good time. It reminded me of my first days of running into a wall and dancing at random clubs. I was afraid places like that didn't exist anymore. It's good to know that they do Haha I remember that too. Used to do that all the time in 2007 when I first got in world. I still miss Festival Island. Total rave atmosphere and SL seemed like a magical fairyland back then. I worked at like 6 different clubs as a dancer including my original favorite GOL3. Had a crew of like 8 of us girls who were just total brats and ran together constantly, got hired as a group, tore it up. Sigh. Miss those days. The paranoia of SL both inside and outside took that away from us, both from the seemingly right wing extremist voice Nazis and gender witch hunters and from the jackbooted overbearing government regulators taking the...the...what was the name of those balls that used to hang over the dance floors throwing out Lindens? The furor over the so called "gambling" you know. Just killed everything. We ended up spending more time defending the ludicrous and the obvious than anything else and the innocence went away. I walked away from an $1100 USD estate and park that I had created with my own hands and funded and a burgeoning landscaping career disillusioned. But I just haven't been able to unfeel that disillusionment and un-know how people had become. Looks like I'm not the only one, huh? :matte-motes-bashful-cute:
  14. Veronica Kanya wrote: Yeah I was taping a video yesterday so I had all the graphics turnt up. Luckily the subject was about people not rezzing and everything looked amazing. Yet when I closed out my screen took forever to close, and then it went pink. I'm sure it's more my graphics card than anything. I don't even know what is the perferred viewer anymore. I still use firestorm. Is there anything else? I'm still not sure. I remember going through tons of viewers back in the day, settling finally on Singularity because of its interface and response and because it handled tattoo layers so well. But it seems like their development has not really progressed much since version 1 or maybe 2. Some features just never turned up it seemed (I think ultimately it came down to yes it handled tattoo layers but it never got to multiple tattoo layers per attachment point, or something like that). So trying it now in 64-bit, it doesn't seem to handle mesh quite right, although that could have been because I wasn't doing something right in configuring my avie. My head texture wasn't showing up, so I went to Firestorm, which did the same thing, until I learned the avie. Now it's perfect, so maybe I'll do Singularity again just for a comparison and stick with it if it works. FIrestorm is very good but there are more controls possible than I have need for control. I prefer the older interfaces.
  15. Agreed. I've been gone from In World participation since about 2010 and everything is different. Of course I haven't seen much of anything yet, but things appear smoother and now I have a whole world of mesh to explore. However, it is annoying that some things have stayed the same. I was quickly reminded of the fact that there is not much to talk about unless you allow yourself to be shoehorned into using voice, which I will refuse to do all over again. And now it's gone one better (or worse) and progressed to Skype and Google Voice. What is the point? Why don't we just do that and forget SL, because it's not a virtual world when I'm staring at everyone's real face all night. Oh, and we still cannot log in without having to immediately be accountable to all my friends who are going to feel butthurt because I appear to all the world to have something I was planning to do upon logging in that had nothing to do with being TP'd to their location to do what they think I should be doing. Will there ever be a way to reserve the right to decide whether or not to be detectable online? And no. Logging in as an ALT is not a sufficient alternative.
