  1. I like mesh because it lets me make things that aren't possible with prims. I like prims because they are awesome. Sculpts, they have their uses but not much for what I want to do. Use the resources wisely and everyone benefits.
  2. That is a truly crappy way of requesting someone be less literal.
  3. MT Mimulus' 6 week classes on scripting (one series on the basics, one on specific subjects) were a huge help to me. I hope she's still doing them, I could use a refresher.
  4. This or dementia or both are the direction I'm headed. I'm not long past 50 and already battling increasing cognitive problems. Family history of strokes and TIAs too. As for support, my family is like that therapist who's speaking another language and I'm like you, trying to bridge the gap. Love all that is good about yourself Maddy, like your Mom does.
  5. Distance is probably less of a problem than time zones and schedules which don't fit together.
  6. It can also happen that a spammer reactivates several long dead threads which then get responses. Once a mod removes the spam, all that's left are the responses and it looks very much like the first remaining one necro'ed the thread. I have no idea how often this happens, or even if it's still going on, but I have seen it in the past. I haven't seen many talking about this in the forums so I thought it might be worth mentioning
  7. Cause he might be a really great guy who prioritises other qualities than appearance.
  8. Just curious if anyone knows if there are any teachers or classes for AVSitter? There aren't any on the current Helping Haven and Builders Brewery calendars. I found it very simple to set up the basics, but got a bit lost in trying to understand what else it can do. I am in the rather quiet group and wish it were busier, I learn so much from questions I haven't thought to ask.
  9. I can't speak for everyone, but I don't argue with them because either I largely agree with them or they've gotten into technical aspects I don't understand well enough. I do read their posts carefully and think about how I can use the information to improve my mesh work. To be frank, the emotional attacks you're launching aren't making the case for your position. It does seem that your emotions are clouding your reading and it really comes down to a disagreement over an issue LL is unlikely to implement in a radical fashion. Have a go at me too if it makes you feel better, but maybe then take some time away from this?
  10. Bitsy is a time traveller who's lost track of when she lost track of her age.
  11. I'm an inworld shopper too. MP only to gather store names and items to check out or if I can't find what I'm after inworld at all. As for abandoning ugly land, I'm not so sure if I agree with you there. After living on that wretched granite for years, when I had to move my priorities were mainland road and grass. Finding abandoned grass wasn't difficult. A friend said that the sim next to his was mostly empty so I went to look, flew around a bit and found something even better. Maybe I got really lucky there but some abandoned land is fine. Perhaps that points to a simpler beautification project - god-mode some of the abandoned granite into grassland. All of those mountains turned out to be a mistake. There's no real reason why they all have to stay though.
  12. I don't think any one is arguing to give all mainland ocean access. I think it's more like using abandoned land to add some woodlands, or parks, or water where it suits. If that landlocked region has had a fair bit of abandoned land for awhile, then it might be a candidate for an amenity to be added. It sounds like it's a fairly busy area though, so probably not. A lake on an abandoned region in the interior of a continent would create a different type of waterfront. It wouldn't attract the serious sailors but could be good for others. That's what my understanding of the hopes for mainland beautification are about, though I could be reading my own ideas into it as it's an example I put forward a while ago. Perhaps it's best the others here clarify their hopes.
  13. hooks onto Maddy with my umbrella handle and takes her with me. bwah ha ha
  14. Does necroposting to rant using lots of repetitions of a bleeped out swear count as edgelording? Does a lack of paragraphing in said rant increase or decrease edgelord status? I want to give it a go myself. I am BITSY LADY OF THE EDGE. Beware my wroth.
  15. My new shop is entirely prims. It was great fun to make, there's no LoD collapse, the only physics issues are when I convex hull the wrong bits, it's very moddable and the LI's great. I think every friend I told about it asked if I'm going to do it in mesh. Why? Aside from a ramp which might become mesh stairs at some point, there's very little to gain (a couple of LI at best) and much to lose.
  16. I love the aesthetic of these kinds of builds, whether they're delightfully charming or exuberantly creative. They feel like they come from the heart and share some of the creator's/s' personality. ?
  17. The AR button might well be overused, but sometime there are clues in the profile or behaviour - or in this case a complex torture chamber and the names given to the accounts - which suggest that making oneself known is just asking for trouble, especially given how hard it can be to shake a committed stalker with multiple accounts. Perhaps this isn't the best thread to argue for polite conversation first.
  18. If you have Windows 10, the bloatware includes an Xbox interface which lets you record anything you tell it is a game. It has to be toggled on under the Game bar tab of the Gaming Setting. Took me ages to figure that out but once you have that set right, it's dead easy. I haven't used any others so I can't compare quality, but this was good enough for my purposes (walk through of the about to close sim where I slived for 9 years ?)
  19. *£$&%. stupid malfunctioning brain. thanks for catching that Phil. edited to be better. i shouldn't be anywhere in public today.
  20. You can go to a lot of mainland as a basic member, but you need to be premium to own some for yourself. Premium accounts can own up to 1024 square metres of 'mainland' land without paying additional monthly fees. Depending on what you like to do with your SL, that might be a tremendous perk or it might mean nothing at all. That's true of all the premium benefits. If they don't suit how you use SL right now, then there's no need to go premium. I've been here nine years and finally had a reason to last month. Premium accounts automatically receive L$300/week as a stipend. That works out to be almost the same as a year's premium on the annual rate. Depending on how you use your SL, that can make an annual premium subscription very inexpensive.
  21. Oooo, we have another candidate for decline in SL users. Bloodlines is less popular so there are fewer players making umpteen billion alts for it.
  22. Our world, our imagination. If someone can imagine it, it's part of their SL. If someone can imagine it and script it, it's part of everyone's.
  23. Mesh bodies have an equivalent of system clothing called 'appliers'. It's a HUD system which talks to the body to put a texture on it (skin, tattoos, clothing etc). Baked on mesh, when it arrives, will do that directly. You wear your system skin or other item and it shows up on the mesh body. Your old textures would work then, provided the mesh body is compatible with baked on mesh. The question is how many people might buy them. Will the fashionista set adopt baked on mesh as the new gotta have it shiny or something to be scorned? Who knows. What aspect of designing do you like most? Texture work? Garment silhouette? Making for yourself or selling? The whole thing is complicated and fragmented these days and learning how to make original mesh clothing is a lot to take on all at once. But there are ways to narrow things down into manageable steps if you prefer that.
