    How does your avatar look today ?

    This is my newest avatar creation. My Bone Drider with animated mesh head and eyes and custom material and mapping on body and head. (Off topic) but does anyone know where one could actually use or wear this avatar outside of organized RP? I goto combat sims and those are dead. most RP is not very spontaneous at times if not in an organized or stuctured RP group. Are there any groups for this particular type of avatar, or other collaborating creators who lean towards this level of custom creation in SL? Many immediately spot this Avatar as as spider, but it also is missing some elements that a basic spider would have and yet has other features an alien species my have and a humanoid head with a menacing dead gaze. The body is includes normal and specular maps made in MindTex, the base textures made in Photoshop and Gimp.

    I know! They can charge us L$ or money for each time we rez a prim or write a note card or post a thread? they could even include package pre-pay options to further access the interface like some other platforms do 😀
  4. I holdControl+Alt+shift, - , 0, and 3 to clear out any non essential elements to not be drawn after log in. Also you can hit control A to call up all persons in your immidate range on your radar. click on the top name (hold shift to select them all) can also deselect friends on the list. Then right click and select Derender. You may have to do this every session (you can also permanently derender to a blacklist ). these steps can help your performance. SL is not just a graphics delivery container. It is a physic environment engine and reacts accordingly to it's rule sets in conjunction with your setup as well as a ton of data (this can vary depending on the given physics data being communicated). Sim crossing or teleports. Sims communicate with eachother as well as your client. There are too may factors to consider that could be interpreted as lag when it's just a matter of the system talking and thinking and people being in a rush.

    Progeny, griefer attacks

    " Many do not want to be involved in other people's role play, even indirectly. " to quote Selene. The one issue that might play a role is the permissions flag and how it is executed between all parties.After all, Progeny RP in and of itself , is not asking non-progeny users 'directly' to opt in or opt out of it's Data routine that could involve that other party. I am sure the information is still there all the same , but the non-Progeny user does not register this function in any way unless they were to go and check everything that was communicating in their area at that time. Technically the HUD system should require that the an Opt Out or Opt in feature is present and visible to all persons in that immediate range of effect. Some people think it should be perfectly ok to fly your airplane over parcels owned by others and you can , but if they have security they can ask that you leave immediately. Some people think you HAVE to give atleast 10 seconds warning (it should give a warning) but to the best of my knowledge, a 'Warning' is not mandatory. I think that is the underlying real issue when it comes to voluntary vs. involuntary implication into a system. *side note: You have to realize that at one time eons ago that SL had no land option to turn off pushing. You were at your own peril when I first joined SL.

    I feel RP relationships can rather 'Borderline'.
