One word. Impossible. For many reasons.

Names of colours are only a guide. Ever looked at a Painting Colour Chart? They patent the names of colours so nobody else can use that name. Stoopid! That's why there's 5 million names for off white. The same colour will look very different using any other light source (computer monitors too) so personal preference is always the deciding factor. Just thought I'd chuck that in.

Go premium. I've always bought mainland, it always way cheaper. (for me) I just want something to build on. I search for a 512 and sort by price. Then go to the cheapest and look. Too busy, go to the next one. Got a new one a few weeks ago for 249L. As it happens, I got my pay (400L) right after that so I was still 150L in front. That's the best way to get into land for the first time too.

Correct answer: It depends. It depends on the creator making things optimally, not wasting resources. It depends on the complexity of the scene. It depends on the textures, A LOT! 1024 textures everywhere will slow everyone down for no reason. But wait, there's more! Better for you as the owner to use the tools in the viewer to check sim performance. Make a couple of changes and see the difference to get the best out of it.

Make a guess and just stick a number on it and see what happens. Go from there.

Ideally, we should have had an Avatar2 rig ready before mesh even hit beta, or at least, a plan for one. All we'd need is a working rig and Ruth would truly be history. Answer: No, maybe, should be, could be, dunno.

How does it effect the Mesh Deformer project.?
What Daniel is explaining: Well, you don't get any extra verts but more faces around the edge which would be very small and useless. To make a two sided plane, (it will still have 8 verts no matter what using solidify or copy face.)
Blender, have plane: select - SHIFT + D to copy (click out so it doesnt move), W , choose flip normals.
Two planes in the same place with opposing normals.

You should upgrade to 2.62 now. It has the collada exporter built-in with SL support.

I bought a mainland 512 for 240L. Can't get much cheaper than that. And no rent!

What about if you rez a ball from the end of the cue which follows the path, much like a weapon but way slower.
EDIT: Opps, too slow.

He's already said he's "into photoshopping photos". Gimp is a non starter. Noone ever Gimped a photo, or even edits one these days. Successful marketing is successful.
...and governments and "interested parties" filtering every packet (for your safety) leaving my country and entering yours doesn't help.

They won't pay users for their information that they earn from (now estimated at $100 per user after the float). Do they give anything back?
Anyway, I don't even see that FB thumbs up image anymore (the TRACKIING ICON), anywhere. Successful blockage of FB is successful.
I suppose it's because LL has not supplied any tools for creators but endorsed Collada for us to use. So the creators of SL had to do something. This is the result.
Anyway, forget all that noise.
Kudos goes to the "Team" who got Collada into Blender and the bonus SL support.
Hip Hip Hooray, Hip Hip Hooray, Hip Hip Hooray!

What may or may not be realised is that SL members are the product, not the customer. The real customer is the shareholders. If the product delivers results, i.e. profit, then it's working as intended. Changes to the product don't really matter as long as the customer is happy. Since when has the Product always been right?

Little bit of personal research and you'd have all these answers. Just a tiny bit.
Didn't know Play Station had a new model.
Could be Photo Shop 4 or Paint Shop 4 or something else.

LOL! Just a few years late. The party's over and not many showed up. Most went home dissapointed because everyone wanted different finger food than what was offered.
Anyway. Best of luck with that.
Study some game design.
Modeling for rendering is totally different to game modeling.
Once you model for optimisation and not for glorious detail your on third base.
