  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's not virtue signalling, it's trying to improve communication between two people. Do you not think improving mutual understanding is a good thing? It does seem to be very important to you that you are understood on your own terms. Can you not extend that to others? I'd also like you to understand that I mean you no ill will. I genuinely wish you well. Can you set aside the narrative you've invented long enough to take this in? If you're not interested in conversation, why are you posting in a public discussion forum? I'm asking this sincerely because I'd like to understand why you do this.
  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. The beta grid is good for uploading practice and test mesh to avoid wasting too many lindens on upload fees.
  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-conscious or just want something historic to put on the wall. It's a curious quirk of this work that the more successful I am with a restoration, the harder it is to spot. But now that it's been pointed out to you, if you like you can always take a closer look and compare it to the original. That piece is probably my best work and I'm damn proud of it. The Ulysses and the Sirens mosaic in the other room is another good one for seeing what I can do (lower right corner was "rebuilt" through layering). I didn't name my shop Restorations for no reason As for the rest, I never claimed to have landmark givers. I said that I include notecards with landmarks with some things I make. See the difference? I acknowledged that quantity of LM matters. Did you miss that? I wasn't "sniping or raging". If that's the tone you read my words in, it came from you, not from me. Look at the words I used to end my post - "Have a lovely day, all the best". They were sincere. I still wish you well, despite everything you've tried to throw at me here. All the best, Prok. Be well.
  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 🤷‍♀️. I notice if it's sufficient or if more is needed and if more is needed, I add something. Do it with shops, places I come across on my travels, friends' places, wherever I think I might want to go back to. When we were new, friends and I would explore endlessly. We'd spend days doing it and getting lost was part of the fun. We weren't in the mindset to document it all with countless LMs though, only enough to get us back to certain places and general areas. That we don't have your habits doesn't mean we don't enjoy Linden places. Why do you assume we don't simply because we don't share your particular habits? May I be allowed to wonder how many are similar to me, my friends, Tari and how many might be like you? I suspect there's very few who process and update LMs in their thousands on a regular basis, and even fewer who do it without bots. Anyway, wishing you a lovely day. All the best
  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. TROLL ROTA!!! That's the answer. Who wants to go first?
  22. 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 world. Some of us want lots of different people doing lots of different things in lots of different ways because that means there's a niche for a greater number of people. None of us are saying that you are the cause of this issue. We're pointing out that your rigidity is complicating things for you. Can you see the difference? You're saying things like "Every time I see a RL profile picture I want to call the cops." It's your responsibility to address this, not ours. Not anyone who has a RL profile picture, especially those who are using it to tell others that they're bringing their RL selves into SL. Can you not just think "oh, not someone for me" and move on? If you have very stringent criteria, it's up to you to make that known and seek out environments where your requirements are more likely to be met. That means much of the grid won't suit you. Much of the grid doesn't suit me at the moment. So I minimise the time I spend in situations which frustrate me and focus on the people, places and activities which make me happy. You're determined to use SL in a very particular and narrow way. Why complicate it even further by getting upset with others who don't do it exactly as you want? Acceptance of others makes it a whole lot easier.
