  1. Stuff happens. What we really appreciate is the communication. Thanks very much to the Linden team for helping the residents get through a tough time. ❤️
  2. Your soothing presence is appreciated. Most of us are in stage 3 withdrawal by now.
  3. We appreciate it. Thank you. ❤️
  4. I'll just catch up on Flickr...
  5. I'm playing my dj set through my stream. I wonder if anyone's even in the club. : )
  6. Hi, Yokasta. It seems to be working okay for me. Try it, again.
  7. Just in case you're not subscribed to the maintenance report, I wanted to let people know the feed is back up. Thank you, LL.
  8. Not everyone knows you can subscribe to an incident to get status updates. It was nice of you to post that info. People who use the feed regularly are concerned about this (There are more than you might realize if you don't use it.) and are looking to share info with the rest of us who use the service. The status report from LL does not currently provide any sense of what's going on, which can be frustrating. Notice, for instance, that Voice Morphing has updates informing the community that the problem is being worked. There are no updates regarding my.secondlife despite it being down for more than 3 days, now. I think it's fine if people want to update this post, since I'm the OP. I have no problem with it. It's nice to know others are concerned about the sl feed. At least we can commiserate about missing it.
  9. Looks like the SL Profile feed is broken, again. Can't post photos or enlarge ones that are already there. I submitted a support ticket about it. I don't really have a question. I'm just posting hoping it will come to the attention of the right people.
  10. Hi, Estella. First, the bottom photo you posted is almost certainly photoshopped, so it's not a good representation of the lighting and effects you can get in sl. However, you can get some very realistic looks, but there are a lot of factors that go into how you look in sl. Here's a little list of settings that will help. These are going to be dependent on your computer, of course: Enable Advanced Lighting Model. Enable all local lights. Turn on Ambient Occlusion. It softens the edges of the shadows and does a few more things. Set your resolution to Outstanding. (It's a FS setting. Not sure if it's the same in the Linden viewer.). If you can walk around with Lifelike, even better. Set your Anti-Aliasing t0 16x Those are just to get you started. You could also turn on your Depth of Field, but that's going to put some more pressure on your graphics. If you have a newish system, you'll probably be fine. There are other settings, but that's my getting started list. If anyone else has any suggestions, weigh on in. : ) Now, about windlights. Most of them are a bit too extreme or don't have decent shadows or the colors don't belong on this planet. I make almost all of mine. However, there are a few nice ones that might work for you: (SS) Atmospheric 06:00 b Nice, dusk windlight. The shadows could be better, but the light is good. (SS) Atmos 07:00 1 and 0:800 1 Both nice, and nice enough shadows. Again, nice dusk time light. AvatarOpt. There's one called Analuletia AvatarOpt -- that one's not too good. Fineday Papersnow is nice, but you have to change the time of day on it to get it to look nice. I like it around 9 am. Raymond's Bright and Hazy Day and Raymond's Brighter Day That should get you started on windlights. At the very least, play with the time of day. That can make a huge difference in the look of the windlight. If you edit a windlight, remember time of day controls the height of the sun in the sky, so it controls the length of your shadows. Est angle controls the angle of the sun (or moon) relative to the horizon, essentially control the angle of your shadows. Feel free to im me in world. All of my flickr photos are done in-world without photoshopping: https://www.flickr.com/photos/myrawildmist/
  11. I finally got in. hope everyone else has the same success. ❤️
  12. Me, too, Phoenix. : ( I'm trying to log... over and over.
