  1. Usually, teleport fails because people set their bandwidth too high. SL hardly ever provides more than 1500 and is usually between 1000 - 1200. Have you checked your bandwidth settings in preferences? It's usually caused by a setings over 1200 actually.
  2. Ever cached 300k+ items after a clear? Good luck with that hahah. The actual point is that the higher the number the higher the chance of corruption and fails are. And then it is good luck sorting that all out, lol.
  3. Basically most of my hair is flexi. I have one mesh which is great. It's very elegant and reminds of an early 60 hairdo. At the time hair was using much hairspray hahah. The drawback is that the tail doesn't move (sticks) which is a pity and a reason i prefer flexi in general.. unless flexi mesh comes to the grid lol.
  4. I'm almost 7 years in SL as well. I always have kept it around 10,000 items maximum and all well orginised in folders since day one. Just ditch all older stuff older versions and so on, lol. And there is a lot of rubbish from LL that i ditched.
  5. Hi there Even the highest graphics cards today just still can't handle shadows of SL all that great, even on an GTX 880 today. SL does load all via internet and this is different than many other MMO's. I am to buy a notebook with an 880 and i've seen it. So all shadows on simply is the main killer. It's that simpel. Some stuff with (although less) impact: Avatar impostors at 12 is enough indeed. Full rendererd avis does 'kill' FPS. Check your bandwidth settings in the viewer's prefences. SL simply hardly delivers above 1500.Usually it's somewhere between 1000 - 1200. So set it there. AA
  6. Hi blue, Well, actually in SL there are some 'game areas'. This has nothing to do with Adult, Moderate or General. Owners of sims and parcels can set that game mode on or off. If they have set it on, this is shown by a heart symbol in the top of your viewer, that is if you have activiated the option in your viewer to see land names, options and coordinates. Anyway, in those areas your avies life starts at 100%. Whenever you are shot or hit with a weapon you lose a certain percentage till zero. Usually upon reaching 0 you are automatically teleported to the place set as your home. SL is
  7. Hi Dsx, It can be so many causes, but this seems a typical internet connection problem. The list by Thinkerer is a way to start indeed. In such cases, most of the time the internet route bewteen your computer and the Second Life servers somewhere has failed, and that is what you get. Sometimes the fail started at a critical point of logging in and then this will repeat forever. I know that all internet traffic to Second Life goes via Above.net these days, and Above.net has had many problems in the last weeks. Not to get too technically detailed, but they have had high packet losses, high p
  8. Be prepared for such a mess in sl... Welcome to sl (*rolling my eyes). Choices remain: how to bring message before any eject or ban... it can be done in many ways... umphatic... emphatic... SL mostly = umphatic... sadly. It doesn't have to be... really...
  9. Well, i'm an oldie. My thoughts are that sl is just full of this kind of ridiculity and unempathism. I've seen it so often. One day i even had a ban for a question to the hostess of 'Blackhearts' me asking what she had voted rl. Instant ban... Isn't that just too rediculous. She made a game out of it. I've seen her ban everybody for noting. Long time ago i had a ban because i gave somebody a notecard, really silly... but... Some sim owners or staff play 'i am god here' and make a game of ejecting and banning. Why? I've never understood. However i just think they lack emphaty in rl actually. T
  10. Pfffff.... 1 word.... YUK !! I've turned away from official V2/3's ever since 2.8 came out and i am glad i never looked back... Linden Lab totally doesn't get it do they. Somehow they have the 'art' to make their viewer a total unwanted crap... Terribly sorry... this is horrid more than ever... what the .... what are they doing... pardon...
  11. Hi NJMike, I'm an oldie in SL and i can confirm your observation. Like you i am always observing and picky as well. I've used about all viewers now and on different computers since it depends on where i am in the world. What i see is that Singularity has always given me +10 Basic FPS indeed under similar circumstances. What i understood is that Singularity is a hybrid V1/V2/V3 accordiing to the developer. He wanted to maintain the V1-look, however under the hood it is based on V2/V3. The rendering engine for example is V2/3. Rendering at LL changed since V2 due to license issues, and al
  12. 19 February 2013. Somewhere in 2011 I found this place. First impression... 60/70-music....older person's gig going, with all respect really. However, all modern music styles are offered 24/7, depending on the shift (2 hours). I visited every half year or so to see if it was developing. DJ's actually are genuine and quite good, perceptive for fun and they go around sl. Some are very grumpy and then it's time to leave I suppose or ignore. The rest of the staff just adds traffic at Muddy's and they tip eachother, lol. So I tipped the DJ's but not the hostesses. The group of staff avatars is
  13. The next logical think for LL to work on has little to do with tech. They are behind on that already big time on navigation and mobility. However, tech will develop as it is... The next logical thing to do is to get more users online; they have been falling since 2008/9. The question has to be raised why Second Life doesn't catch on and remains so isolated, even being a geek thing perhaps. SL isn't moving on that matter. One of the many complaints i hear from ppl who left is that SL seems a dominant place for social inadequates, geeks and sexual frustrates all over the place. It's no fun to
  14. Actually, i would not concentrate on Phoenix anymore. It's too heavy, lacks latest tech and certainly lacks the modern rendering 'machine'. It's not flexible in terms to transfer it into an LL variant. Firestorm (a modern variant of Phoenix based on LL-2-3-code) does actually try to, however it's heavy as well and therefore very laggy. And it's always behind on LL. I've used Phoenix for a year since i had no alternative for Asus high-end notebooks and Mesh, i am on. However, for the moment the Singularity Viewer (SV) is totally my thing. V1-look it has at your screen indeed, but under the boo
  15. Hi, About lag many factors come into play, however lag has increased indeed for many is what i do understand inworld. There 2 reasons at Linden Lab's side one: LL has recently changed to another data location. Two: All viewers based on the new rendering engine plus mesh capable have had a major drop in Basic FPS. The latter is one of the biggest critisism about Second Life today seen on the internet. Firestorm, LL official viewer and all viewers based on 3 or 4 (FS) have the same problem. Terribly low Basic FPS. And this causes a very choppy and constant freezing experience, hence you ca
