I was so hoping that mesh would bring out some amazing bustle/crinoline gowns. Can I then ask the designers to PLEASE consider making the flexiprims more responsive in large gowns? So often I see a designer with excellent textures but then the gown itself feeeeeelllllllssssss liiiiiiiiiikkkkkkkkkeeeeeeee itttttttttsssssssss fllllllllllloooooooooowwwwwwwwwiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnnnnggggggggggg innnnnnnnnnn waaaaaaattttttttteeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrr....
  2. I have a few hopes for Mesh clothing. First, I'm loving the fact that, although I have to edit my shape a bit, I can wear clothes that stretch across the breasts as opposed to look like they're painted on them. This could look exceptionally good for period gowns that typically are worn over corsets (ie Baroque and Victorian gowns). Also, I'm hoping (though have yet to see any) that large mesh gowns like mid-Victorian era hoop skirted gowns look great with mesh. Some designers are good about the flexiprims in their gowns, but I find that most designers have too much 'flow' in the gowns, so that when you're walking it looks like they're moving through water.
  3. One thing I wish designers would do is make large ballgowns that would go over hoop skirts actually move like they're over hoop skirts. Most large ballgowns use flexiprims as usual, but move as if the person is walking through water. When they move the gown flows back, and when they stop it can take seconds for the gown to return to shape. Some designers do it better though (especially with sculpties too), generally with a fair bit of tension + gravity which should dominate any drag. That said, I'm excited to see what will be coming with mesh. Not only could we have big ballgowns that act real, but we could have corsets that actually modify (or fake it) the body. Though we have some great underbust corsets inworld, we haven't seen good overbust corsets.

  5. I've had an issue the last month or so where I can (usually) start the SLV 2.5 and log in without any problems once, perhaps twice. However after that if I log out and try to start the viewer again, it immediately starts to lag before even getting to the login screen. And once it gets there, the keystrokes take FOREVER to type in my password. And then I can't even log in after that because it basically times out. Looking at my task manager I see the SLV is usually then taking up 50-100% of my CPU. The only solution is to restart the computer at that point. Is there a solution to this?
