  1. So that's what the boy alt is up to when I think he's not logged in. It explains a few things 🙈
  2. am trying to focus on the we were lucky to have him bit today
  3. Could prim params be scripted to simulate a fluid? How bad would it be for demands on the server and rendering? I'm guessing if it was feasible, we would have seen it more.
  4. Rounded logs would add enormously to the mesh geometry and render cost. So yeah, it's a necessary compromise for the overall quality of the regions. A different name would be more appropriate though.
  5. I thought I saw her post just the other day, but maybe it was an old thread? I hope everything is well with her.
  6. I would laugh so hard if I came across a parcel like this (even though, or perhaps especially because, I can't have much pizza in RL). Please make one
  7. You'll have to do a LOT of uploading to run out. I've gotten more without doing anything so there must be some automation to it, though I don't know the mechanics of it, just that it happens. Good luck with your projects
  8. It might take a couple of log-ins on the beta grid (with some time inbetween) to get it synced with your main grid inventory. I'm not sure what the current process is. For a while it was log in, then log back in after they do whatever they do to resync it at silly o'clock in the morning SLT. Was having problems with it and don't know if that was a temporary glitch or if they've changed it. If you have problems, ask. Someone here will know. Once you get it sorted, the beta grid is well worth the effort. Nice quiet place to work on a project and free uploads
  9. The friend I'd like to invite in has two small children so her days are pretty full. Had thought to ask when they're older, but maybe I'll put out feelers now. I also know someone whose sense of humour involves insulting people repeatedly. He's not malicious, he genuinely finds it hilarious, but we probably don't want him picking up tips from the info hub griefers SL is an excellent escape from this confinement and since it's a time sink anyway, perfect for those looking to fill long hours. I hope it helps many.
  10. You are literally taking offense and attacking someone FOR WISHING YOU WELL. I haven't been vicious or nasty. You're the one who does that, Prok. Amongst everything else, you derailed your own thread to have a go at me over the price of something in my shop. The price of something in my shop. Why? Were you hoping to somehow discredit me? Make me feel bad because I lost a sale for something I don't sell? When you've asserted incorrect things about me, I've attempted to explain and set the record straight in hopes that you might better understand me. Which is what I'm doing here. That'
  11. You're wrong again, Prok. I've never heckled you. It's just not something I would do. I told you I was sincere in wishing you well. I still do. All the best, Prok. Be well.
  12. Na, I say Blender is free, I can't afford Maya so I have to take it on trust when Maya users say Maya is better . Blender was originally animation software. There's a ridiculous amount it can do that's not needed for making mesh for SL. SL mesh has many quirks and requires many compromises, so there's a lot to be said for learning as you go. Make something, then slive with it awhile to get a feel for how it works inworld and figure out which compromises matter most for what you're making and what you want from it. It's at least as much an art in that respect as technical skills.
  13. The building alt is a very adorable husky puppy now. I just asked her if she was a pet and she threatened to bite my leg off to make my pirating about more authentic. I think that's a no.
  14. The public domain version has a massive slash across the centre. I spent three weeks working on the digital "restoration" of it and that's what I'm selling. It's a tremendous piece and I was determined to "repair" the damage, no matter how long or how many new techniques I had to develop. Price is higher as a nod (it's what, 70 cents) to the amount of skill and work which went into the repair and serious history buffs and art collectors are fine with that; they know the original so they're able to appreciate what I've accomplished. There are many cheaper items for those who are budget-consciou
  15. Good morning Prok, did you have a pleasant time slating and slandering us for taking part in the conversation? I hope you did Anyway, I don't run rentals or a land preserve or a server. You're right on that. But I do sometimes make things to travel about on and include a notecard with some of my favourite scenic Linden locations and nearby rez areas (always Linden because they're stable and reliable). I have more annotated LMs for good places to take snaps to make the vendor images from. It's never been a big deal to me to amend an LM after I take it. It's just part of taking an LM 🤷‍♀️.
  16. Yeah. Sometimes I used to take consolation in the idea that there might be another me somewhere, that my potential might not be entirely wasted.
  17. that's the kind of madcap creativity i miss, like young children before we stifle their imaginations in the name of growing up
  18. The LM name comes from the parcel. The owner of the parcel gives it the name. Are you complaining about this in general or because the Lindens didn't name things to your specifications in their parcels?
  19. Landmark names can be edited. A friend drops LMs on me when he finds somewhere he thinks I'd like and I always add a FROM GEORGE on the end so I can find it again
  20. I was in for a visit from the link you posted in another thread (TY for that btw) and I really liked how vibrant and saturated the textures were. So much mesh all soft and fuzzy and drab washed out neutrals. That has its place with the shabby chic crowd but it was good to see something richer and remember how that used to be the norm.
  21. The whole issue about revealing gender is complicated and there is no universally "right" answer. What one person needs (or thinks they need) will match with some and go against the needs/perceived needs of others. That is simply the way it is. Recognising this doesn't make us casual or any of the other more judgemental words you've thrown out. It just means we accept that not everyone uses SL the way we do. Some of us value the remaining diversity of SL highly. Some of us miss how there used to be even more of it. A diversity of approaches makes for a richer and more self-sustaining worl
  22. /me skips off to tell the boy alt he's nefarious. He'll be delighted as he thought his sole purpose these days was to paint the Belli house. He does it very well, mind you. He did remind me not to tell the building alt. She's already taken on a slife of her own. Clean inventory for the beta grid we said. Yeah right said she.
