  1. A couple of days ago, some prims starting showing up as red. It looks similar to the View > Highlight Transparent effect, but a bit lighter. The difference is clear when I turn Highlight Transparent on. As far as I can tell this is limited to scripted objects. It's only on one viewer (Singularity, cleared cache, reinstalled), so I'm wondering if I accidentally ticked something. Can't find what though. Alpha and other texture characteristics don't seem to matter. If two objects with the same texture are next to each other, the one with the script has the red cast and the one without is fine

  3. I wondered what that strange thing sticking out of my hips was for most of a week. Somehow I figured out it was that awful greyish-mauve polka dot skirt. Had no idea 'replace outfit' didn't replace everything. %-)
  4. My guess is that the free furniture is primarily about retention. A few months ago, a friend introduced me to a friend he'd met somewhere. She was brand new, had a linden house, and was putting a lot of effort into slogging through freebie places. She was happy enough with the furniture she'd found - she didn't yet know enough to realize how very 2006 it looked - but it was chewing through her allotted prims at a furious pace without filling the space. I don't know what's happened to her, but I haven't seen her logged in since her first month in SL. So my guess is that the new free furnitur
  5. A lot of stores closed during August, some citing poor sales. The ones I heard about were mostly women's clothing. I'm wondering if certain types of items were more affected than others too? It seems like things are picking up though.
  6. I spent a week in a freebie 'wolf' av because it reminded me of a skunk and that amused me. If I have a furry side, it appears to be well and truly repressed.

I certainly need to carve out some time for a little shopping expedition soon! How people who aren't creators manage to be so busy in SL is beyond me. Doll-dressing is something to do when I log in. That's all. I'd gladly trade that for friendships that weren't one-sided.
  8. Something so basic shouldn't require inside knowledge. This new set-up doesn't work.
  9. Ok, I'll try that. Will try to get in to the weekend events as well. Thanks.
  10. This seems a good place to ask, do you have any advice on role playing? Especially in the context of your sim. I'm lousy at it. :-)
  11. For anyone under 14 days, use Search to find a store called Amacci's and teleport there. Look for the "Poses and AOs' building (signs on the ground will point you in the right direction). Once in that building, look on the right hand wall for a sign that says something like "Free AOs for Under 14 Days'. Then click on either the male or female sign underneath. (Or both, if you're flexible that way.) You'll need to find a place (like a sandbox) to unbox it. After that, you can wear it and it will give you a nicer walk and stand. From what I've seen, it's by far the best free walk/stand AO (ani

If it was a freebie and you have a vague idea of where you found it, go back and get a new one to 'wear' normally. That's often the simplest fix. Any information on position has to be set by someone. Creators usually do this when they're testing out a new creation

So hanging out with him involves a lot of that. These comments are drawn from my observations of both my behaviours and his. Hunts can definitely bring in new customers, not just freebie-junkies. My friend is an impulse buyer; I shop sales. Turning each of us into a customer depends on the same basic premise though - make hunting in your store a pleasant experience. Grid-wide hunts tend to be mons
  14. It's gone from optimism to a bit of why bother? The few friends I have managed to make have all wandered off or started sleeping better. Not having much luck at making new ones either, so I'm essentially back to playing dress up with my doll, only with proper vintage instead of freebie ball gowns.

I was aware that he was pretty much a noob and was going to give him an advice or two about SL when he said I was 'pretty enough' to be his GF in this game. I may not be much of a looker compared to other girls in SL but dammit if I'd let a guy thinks I'm 'pretty enough'! hehehehe... I guess that was my trigger point.. At that point, I would have very politely offered him an LM to a sim with lots of very pretty, um, girls. Your restraint is commendable. (Note to self: get said LM for future)
  16. While you're still young, use Search to find Amacci's and teleport there. Then go to the Poses & AOs building and look on the right wall for a sign that says something like Free AO for Under 14 Days. Click on the female one, the male one or both, as appropriate. Then find a place like a sandbox to open the box and wear the AO. You'll still be walking into walls, but you'll look far less clumsy as you do. :-) (AO is an 'animation over-rider'. It's how people get their different walks and standing around animations/poses. If you stay in SL for long, you'll probably want to upgrade but t
  17. From Rodvik: "Lastly, we know that the Basic mode is very lean, and we’re only at the beginning of developing the minimum feature set--keeping it simple and working on the basics of usability first. We anticipate adding additional capabilities to Basic mode, so your feedback is important before we make this version of the SL Viewer the default download for new users." The date of that is 18 March. http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Featured-News/Introducing-SL-Viewer-Beta-with-Basic-and-Advanced-Modes/ba-p/758329 This Basic/Advanced approach is very close to a suggestion made on the old
