  1. Sculptypaint is indeed free and still available: http://www.xs4all.nl/~elout/sculptpaint/ with video tutorials here: http://www.xs4all.nl/~elout/sculptpaint/tuto/index.html If you want to take a bit bigger leap, there is a "special version" of Blender called Jass that includes some remarkable capabilities, including the ability to generate an lsl script that you place in a prim inworld along with your final sculpty textures. The script then assembles your multi-sculpty object right before your eyes. The basic version is available for what I believe is a voluntary contribution through a

We have a Mall, Shopping areas, Clubs, residential areas and interactive areas. I am currently having a problem with a neighbor who has her two Red Zone bots set for SIm wide, when she does not own the whole SIM, and is not listening about setting it for her parcel. These two Red Zone Bots fly through where I am trying to rent houses, at the rate of once a minute. I have parcel music off and set object entry to only group, ye

GS Estates will no longer use RedZone and will update the covenant on all sims, banning its use. Yay, and sorry for being snarky. I'm more than a little battle weary from this thing. "Fried" is more like it. I shall work on it.

I have never received a complaint about any of my residents having or using RedZone themselves. But this topic does make me think that we need to look ahead and decide how we will handle it when it does happen. I can tell you that I do not use the hud that came with the updated. I really do not care if people have alts. The only time I access RedZone is if someone has to be banned. I will also ban their alts. This has been a valuable too
  5. I think, Steven, there are two key areas for us to focus. 1) Consent to scan. The alt detectors are still scanning invisibly and I believe the vast majority of users are oblivious. So far as I know, the viewers as delivered default to a less-than-fully secure state -- that includes the media patch already in the Cool viewer and the coming update of Phoenix being defaulted to "off". 2) Nevertheless, "they always find the blue dress" as I heard a public relations consultant say recently. Awareness will spread. Those of us who are aware and who care about the future of our little pixel world are
  6. Scholarly (easy to read, "this isn't tinfoil hat craziness") article on what the Facebook and Twitter buttons do: http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1717563 They're pretty aggressive little snoops, to say the least. I don't usually get all upset about such things, but when it comes to my SL identity, I don't want ANY possible tie to my RL, tyvm. You can block them with adblockplus or with noScripts (Firefox) or notScripts (Chrome). noScripts/notScripts is pretty fun to have anyway, since you get to see just how much stuff is trying to track your every web move, although i
  7. Rene, Search is no longer a problem for anyone with viewer 2.5 and all the necessary alterations to the default settings that are needed to protect oneself against the web based profiles TwitFace snoopware, redZone, QuickWare Alts Pro, and goodness knows what other security invaders are creeping in through unpatched exploit holes and LL's new "features." By the time you shut down media, music, voice, cookies and Javascript, neither profiles nor Search work. So, problem solved!
  8. Settle down, settle down. I finally get it. No decisions are being made here, there's nothing to worry about. There's a new CEO and all the management are thrashing about attempting to look like they're doing something gosh awful important, that's all. Notice ....this is the Marketing Department running this! "Yes SIR, we've just opened a whole new Resident ....erm ...CUSTOMER Communication Initiative and are even now beginning to prepare to analyze their vital input and preparing to begin to get ready to move forward with a continued dialogue which we have every hope will produce an

  10. Issue #4 : I like the check box to make your profile NOT shown on the web AT ALL but stil shown in Second Life to either everyone, friends, etc.... however, I'm not sure if this Facebook widget thing still works or not or how they plan on implementing it from getting "Liked" even if someone else lets their information known. Plus it seems as tho the settings don't stick? I've clicked "Save" but I'm extremely weary on profiles even being shown on the internet. I know that before they still were on SL.com's search, but nothing was linked to other websites such as Facebook. Its nice they gave
  11. 1) Default setting is Javascript and Cookies enabled, leaving users wide open to the Facebook and Twitter snoopware on the web based profiles. 2) Media, Music and Voice default to on, leaving you wide open to having your IP address snagged by the IP snoopers out there. 3) I hoped to use this long enough to change my profile privacy settings, but am getting some sort of Web Kit fail error and my Profile won't open. How do I change those settings outside this viewer, please? I'm getting really tired of having to fight so hard to maintain a shred of privacy and am losing interest. If th
  12. Well ....we're about 250 posts into this thread plus several hundred more on the 2.5, New CEO and Q4 Economic Indicators threads. Allow me to summarize, and tell me if I'm way off here: 1) Fix the basic functions. Search and Group Chat for starters. 2) We like our privacy more than you thought. We're getting cranky about IP Address sniffers exploiting your security hole to play the "alt matching" game, and we want a lot of choice about who sees what. 3) Viewer 2? Not as cool as you thought. Rethink. (Even if it was as cool as you think, it wouldn't be by the time we take all the

  14. You needed ANOTHER channel of communication? I'm dumbstruck. Another channel of communication. You didn't hear us the first 10,000 times? Are you hoping for some different messages than the ones you've gotten over and over and over elsewhere? Is this a case of "Didn't like Mom's answer, try Dad?" Seems like it to me. Or just window dressing. It must be, because I have no problem whatsoever in finding out what your customers are saying to you without any need for a special channel. Makes me wonder why I've bothered. How profoundly discouraging.
  15. how many big business concerns will say to themselves, lets do something in virtual worlds, and look at what they can do and then they see you guys comments.. and dont do it.. Uh .........the day of "big business concerns" thinking anything profitable was going to happen here passed back in about 2008 ........and believe me, it had nothing to do with any comments in a blog. every business in the world when they present their results don't focus on the negatives I am wondering if some of you supposed wonderful business guys are thick I'd argue that LL is more like a government in that we a
