  1. I tried that but did it again just now to be sure, I was able to log in with a different browser so perhaps its a latest release of Firefox issue, I am unable to log in to the main site with it. Strange!
  2. I cannot log in either, I was wondering if anyone reported it. I can log into everything else just not the main site where account info is, it just goes to a blank white page with a title of "OpenID transaction in progress" when clicking login and never does anything.
  3. For sure, I agree totally if I had any stress over them that would be most excellent advice indeed. TBH im not bothered enough to worry about it, though it was interesting enough to me to ask as i do love digging in to things and hearing others out. Besides, I can use them elsewhere already, and its yummy right now, no need for any stressing. Most definitely im not demanding anything, only asking questions and discussing.
  4. OMG the dark theme is fabulous! I wasn't expecting it anytime soon, what a nice surprise, i love it! My eyes and mitochondria thank you! Cheers Sweetie Darling! ❤️
  5. lol, far better to know thyself, then you can hear anything from anyone and it wont trigger you. I still have triggers though of course, we all do, for me its seeing people get bullied, or abused etc, I go into full on warrior mode and have to calm myself before interjecting, else I will put my own mess into the situation rather than diffuse it.
  6. Thanks Whirly, I left if off after what Rider said above, he didnt mention that but rather the caustics so I guessed he wasnt too concerned and only made one for that, but you're right its best to get all the things in there and easily referenced. Cheers! ❤️ I love Jira and keep poking Sansar peeps about how brilliant it is, I guess they must use it or something similar but its closed to public, which might be smart in these early stages, but still.. Jira is sweet!
  7. Nobody but LL knows what mysteries lurk in the thousands of hidden experiences, and those creators who've not yet poked their heads out. Any creator caught sitting on the sidelines in the big Steam release is going to be quite surprised what they miss out on... Oh and I found out we will not have to use Steam to play Sansar, its merely a great option to include them in the verse. There will always be the independent viewer too, at least for the foreseeable future. I love steam though, im excited to see all those amazing creators that get the shaft most of the time have a real realm to operate in that more fully rewards them for their efforts. And piss off with those whiny twits that ruined the optional paid mods movement before it even got going... Well they can get their never ending freebies whilst the most excellent creators move on to greener more HQ an capable pastures, filled with players that actually appreciate good creativity, and want gladly to reward that, money is great, puts food on the table 'n sheet, and keeps people creating. To the other point about Linux and Mac raised in the thread earlier, they dont count in much except mostly institutional markets, and servers for linux of course, most especially as far as gamers go, they're nowhere near anything worth being all worked up about, especially for anything high-end. I think it was smart to leave them out for now, if not even for a long time to come.
  8. Yes I read that post, its one reason why I got back into Sansar, and why I got a premium account there now too, that and the huge land allotment. I guess everyone perceives things differently. It seems like a good deal to me, I can understand how a tighter gap between buying Sansar dollars and exchanging them for real dollars could be nicer, but im sure they've got a good formula and data their basing things off of, besides... it could be adjusted at any time, I seriously doubt they want to drive away all the creators. That said, take that small exchange difference and divide it over your 20 free sims (& each of your customers 20 GIANT FREE sims!), and the infrastructure that keeps it going, the developers, support staff, marketing, sales, community outreach, community organizing, executives, investors, bandwidth, licenses, etcetera. How little must they have to spread over all that? Shouldnt they make a profit too? Id say so, otherwise Sansar goes bye bye real quick. Over the years I've done my fair share of PR, marketing, sales, you name it, a mega ***** ton of it. I dont think LL is pulling anyone's chains here, this is a creator beta, they're speaking direct to creators, not players, and seem to be genuinely attempting to meet eye to eye at a good level playing field.
  9. I made a pitch black windlight to test, and wow it sure deletes near everything around unless its a light or has a light on it. You could still add some clouds and tiny bit of light, but keep the moon and sun light output low or you'll light up the whole world around you. Here's a quick one min video I shot of the pitch black windlight in the EEP viewer. https://www.flickr.com/photos/macrocosm-sl/45745018731
  10. Is that the right number though? I thought anyone signed up before Dec 20 is going to have a different % for at least a year? You make some great points, im sure the lab must also be considering these things, they seem keen to make it work out and benefit creators, and keep the infrastructure going. Im sure with enough constructive input, and data to back it up, things will adjust accordingly to the best possible outcomes. Keep up your voice, and let it be heard, especially the more constructive and convincing you can bring it. Thats true, though I was speaking more to those who have 3 or many more SIM's, plus rentals, and some obviously have multiple accounts each having a lot spread around. It can be expensive, but of course its less than the profits if you're good, still, not all months are as good as others. I get the sense that if the exchange rate is bad it will be adjusted, they've already given everyone already signed up a year with a lower % in response to complaints right? Whats that number?
  11. Yes I hear you, and im not arguing with that, its simply that you cannot move and edit them yet in Sansar, thats the only difference. I never buy mesh thats not fitted for my various mesh bodies here in SL, but accessories normally are not much an issue because you can adjust them. How about make it a tileable texture, or even several of them for the shader, I thought at least one of the shader types allow that and with blending between them too, right? Then you could also add over a detail layer and/or decals to diversify it even further. I have to test this very soon, ive been so swamped with work and holidays ive not been able to bring in builds yet.
  12. He did make a great point about objects from those 3d stock websites. It would be a good idea to include some more fields when uploading objects, to denote in a legally binding way, when you are the sole creator with all the originators rights, vs things that are mixed with others stuff, or from purchased licenses. This would give people in MP the awareness of what they're getting, so long as its honest. Those caught in dishonesty could be punished, and removed. Im hoping the ratings system will punish those doing shoty jobs and pushing unaltered junk from bulk websites. So we can all avoid giving them too much reward, without that, they will just not bother after a while. Im going to add that over in Sansar forums, seems useful, and they may already have such ideas. The key is to be Legally Binding, people dont want legal trouble, and crooks avoid traps they know might easily catch them...
  13. I can understand your perspective, and you're free to do how you please, but I think its worth noting the increased transaction fee is to relieve creators from needing to pay for land and rentals as much, unless they're prolific with 21+ sims and networked into many others. The difference is actually vastly cheaper on creators in Sansar, at least for those whom build out a infrastructure here, and many do, and most especially it will be appreciated in those times of the year when there are luls in traffic and sales, there wont be those HUGE bills coming in every month for all your sims and land rentals. Land barons are the only ones intentionally excluded from Sansar it seems to me. LL is in a unique position to know these things, and test what may work better from an informed perspective. In SL I would say the land price is what held it back from becoming bigger than it may have, who knows for sure; but I would guess running through their data the choice was made very intentionally, for the benefit of creators, and thus greater abundance for everyone, including those that have to maintain and develop the whole giant system we all want to enjoy. Edit: you may want to seriously reconsider your plan, wont that just give people free reign to steal your creations and resell them?
  14. Excellent point, thats the same situation with all our various mesh bodies here in SL, things fitted are only for that one mesh base. Once we get some more sliders and skins and who knows tweaks or replacements to the defaults there will be a ton of variety and it will feel much better. For what its worth the female avi is nice, good natural curves and shape and pretty face, skin and sliders will make a huge impact. The male needs mesh help tho... lol
  15. Those base avatars have been the same for eons, they're the fill-in for creator-beta. From what I have gathered new default avatars are in the works, and this is likely why the older ones have not been fixed in all the ways many of us want, except the most glaring of issues of course, there have been fixes on them, but not totally updated yet even once. Its a touch more difficult to know whats going on Sansar side beyond what they're allowed to share and we can guess. They must watch for competition and not give too much away too soon, to keep them guessing until its oooh and awe time. So, id say the Lab is enforcing working on the underlying system, maybe avatar is back burner, or more likely its secret. Edit: I have no idea, or care to understand, all the gender bs, Cis? means nothing to me... I see humans, that are as many varieties as the stars in the universe, each one a unique expression of creation. Labels are crafted to shove people in controllable manageable boxes, i tend to avoid them unless they're fun or useful. I see all this gender stuff as bored professors cooking up popycock to keep their jobs interesting, grasped on to by those whom like divisiveness and divided masses.
