  1. Hi All, I am trying to figure out how to use the XML of my avatar in poser so that I can create custom animations that are sized correctly. I have figured out how to export the XML from SL but I don't know what to do with it now to make it usable in Poser. Poser also doesnt seem to know what to do with the XML. I use maya for my modeling and mesh stuff, but it is not able to read the file. Is there some trick or tutorial someone can point me out for how I can get this XML file into a format that I can use in Poser (or at least get it into Maya so I can export it as something Poser can manage). Any help would be sincerely appreciated! Thanks.
  2. Outstanding! When did they make this change?
  3. I had always thought the SL limit was 30 seconds for an animation, but I came across this page in the SL wiki. Has something changed that I dont know about or is this page just incorrect? What is the max number of frames/seconds? http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Animation_Length_Limit Animations can have no more than 60 seconds worth of unique frames.Linear animations will therefore end in 60 seconds or less.Looped animations will only end when stopped.
  4. Innula, I do amnesties as necessary but it would be nice to not have to do so much administration on the "incorrigibles" who do keep coming back vs the one day old bored griefers. I am thinking I will just have to make my own system, but I am MEH about starting it, I have better things to do with my time. Can you set an automatically unban after X days? Have I missed this feature?
  5. Thanks for the reply Tammy, we do have a great staff in my sim. Every year around mid June it just gets a bit nuts as people come into summer. It's an adult sim that is also in the destination guide. My own fault for putting it in the destination guide I am sure but oh well, thems the breaks of advertising. We don't ban that easily but over time a limit of 300 avis at our level of traffic gets tight. I end up doing an annual amnesty, which isn't optimal. It would be nice to be able to go further, but SL just isnt set up for it. Perhaps in SL 3.0 that LL is working on they will come up with better tools.... :-D someday my ban tool will come hahah.
  6. Freya, thanks, I had considered scripting something myself but I was thinking *somebody* must have addressed this already (crosses fingers). My sim gets very high traffic - like 50 thousand or more unique avatars a year. Crazy I know, but makes it very difficult to police sometimes. It is always worst at the beginning of summer as all the lil @$$h@ts have free time on their hands lol. If I don't find any viable products I will have to have something made I guess.
  7. Hi All, I am curious if there are any useful ban tools that can handle lists of more than 300-500 (the current in world parcel and estate limits) that don't make more lag than the griefers they are trying to prevent? Anybody have a good tool for it? I have looked around but most have max 100 which is not helpful. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
  8. It will be a big ol pain in the ass for content creators to ramp up in the new system, but creators, if we think ahead this can be a boon not a bust. If you have proper tracking of your customers (even if just from this point forward) you could offer them discounts in the new system for the new items to put a good spin on it. Then they know if they go ahead and buy your item now, they can get it in the new system. I haven't throught the entire idea through yet, but I am sure there is a way to plan ahead for the change over. Sure many of us old timers have years and years of "the $h!t we have made" but not all of it needs to come with us. For some of us, a new inventory from scratch could be a bit of a godsend (I am a ginormous packrat with my 119k item inventory, I admit). This is an opportunity to start fresh, with better avis, physics, prims, etc, etc, etc. SL 1.0 wont go away overnight. It's a whole new market opening up. And sure, there are lots of chicken littles out there whining about all they have spent and have in inventory. How many of those folks who spent 15k for one of those ancient Stroker Serpentine sex beds are probably still in use? I suppose that counts for those whining about all the money in their inventories, but most of us move forward. Stuff gets obsolete, it doesnt matter what we paid for it. Digital antiques are NOT valuable on the whole. GET RID OF THE KRUFT and move on is all I can say to them. Chins up people, SL 2.0 is at least TWO years out. We have lots of time to get on top of that action!
  9. Thanks to all who answered. After tinkering endlessly I gave up and left it two linksets. I did find an elegant solution though. i have EZ-Rez-It! (which is free and awesome) and I put it in the shadow prim (unlinked from the rest) and it is the rezzer. So users can rez the shadow, turn how they want, and then rez. It only adds three scripts to the whole thing and then all they have to do is just shift the bottom prim and everythign follows suit. One single prim would have been more elegant but this will have to do. I am tired of putzing around with it. Again, thanks to all who took time to respond. :cathappy:
  10. string uuid = ""; // Put the sculpt maps UUID here. This will allow the script to reset without problems. (Should a user decide to reset it)makephantom() { if (llGetLinkNumber() < 2) return; llSetPrimitiveParams([PRIM_TYPE, PRIM_TYPE_BOX, 0, <0,1,0>, 0, <0,0,0>, <1,1,0>, <0,0,0>, PRIM_FLEXIBLE, TRUE, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, <0,0,0>,PRIM_TYPE,7] + [uuid] + llList2List(llGetPrimitiveParams([PRIM_TYPE]),2,2));}default { state_entry() { if (uuid == "") uuid = llList2String(llGetPrimitiveParams([PRIM_TYPE]),1); makephantom(); } collision_start(integer n) { makephantom(); } on_rez(integer s) { makephantom(); } changed(integer c) { if ((c & CHANGED_LINK) || (c & CHANGED_REGION_START)) makephantom(); }}
  11. There is a little script you can drop into individual prims in a linkset to make those prims and only those with the script in phatom while the rest of the linkset stays solid. What i need is the inverse, to be able to set the whole linkset to phantom and have a script that would make three little prims solid.
  12. That acutally isnt the case. You can set some to type prim and some to type none and make them phantom. the problem is that it increases the land impact in an unacceptable (for me) manner.
  13. Hi All, I have a great little script i can put in a prim in a linkset to make that prim phantom. But I need to do it the other way around. I have a 70 prim object where i ONLY need three of the prims to be solid - and all the rest of the prims need to be phantom. Is there a script i can put in a *phantom* linkset to make just those three solid? I tried setting the phantom ones to prim type none and then prim on the solid ones (one of which is the root prim). but my object went from 70 prims to 128 boom. That will not do, as it is overprimmy to begin! The root prim does not have to be the solid one, i could change that. But what i do NOT want is to have to have sixty odd scripts in the silly thing in order to have all those other prims phantom. Doing this in two pieces is a real problem, it needs to be linked. Is there a way to put a "make this here prim solid in this otherwise phantom linkset" script out there? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading! StarSong
  14. Hi All, I have begun trying my hand at mesh creation and I am looking over the standard sizing - the five sizes to fit most avis. Here is the thing, is there some simple way to make the clothing once and make the other four just a morph without having to fuss with making the object (or at least editing it by hand) four more times? I saw "liquid mesh" jeans at redgrave, they offer just the one size and it fits well (which is VERY unusual for my avatar) - how is this done? Is there a straightforward way to make one size fits all (or at least most) without the blood sweat and tears?
  15. I am not selling my meshes. I am trying to make my own build.
  16. Thanks but that link is for rigging. I dont need to rig anything, I am trying to get the textures to save in the occlusion/shadows and whatnot on the texture so that i can use it in sl. Any other links?
  17. Hi All, I am finally getting my feet wet making meshes and learning the tools i have at hand (namely maya and mudbox). Please bear with me if i am not using the right terms for things, this is all new to me. I have got the basic modeling stuff down and today got into learning how to sculpt and paint in mudbox. Here is the thing, I seem to be missing one crucial bit of information - how to "bake" the texture i see in mudbox into the UV that i can then upload to SL? I was trying a very simple test, using the default cow model in mudbox. I painted up some color and did some pulling and pushing of the mesh for effect. I could see in the main view the shadows and stuff on the paint, but when I export the UVs that isnt included (although i suppose that is what the blue/gray image is for). How do i bake so that the shadows made by the alterations to the mesh save into the paint layer? Can anyone give me the steps or suggest a www tutorial somewhere that can show me how to make an SL ready texture with the shadows baked into it?
  18. Thanks so much, that was just what i was looking for!
  19. Hi All, I am wondering if there is a way to display an in-world image on the WWW without having to save it out somewhere? If I have the UUID, is there a URL or something i can use to display that image on a webpage? Or is it required to save the images out?
  20. Available now (ready to clear and give you estate rights as soon as we both have our transfer tickets in so that you can get started right away). USD 450.00 includes transfer fee and two weeks of tier (due 28th). Buyer can keep the sim name IMAGINE or rename, but should plan to ask to move it (that's included free in the transfer) I will consider renting this sim for 20k a week.

  22. Hi All, Merry Christmas! I am trying to find a way to find out all of the parcels on a sim and get their parcel info. I do not want to have to flit around and do parcel info on each one myself... Is there just some way to grab all of the parcel uuids/info without all that hopping around? Thanks in advance!
  23. I just have to say Linden Labs that *I* am disappointed, seriously so. Enough so that I am probably going to be letting some of my sims go. Let me explain: Linden Labs have this promotion going: https://secondlife.com/land/sale They make it seem that you are getting a "free sim" it says "save 1000 usd" but they LIE! I am annoyed that they are putting this out there in such a misleading fashion - you normally pay $1000 but it INCLUDES the first month. You are NOT saving $1000 on a sim, you are saving $705 - because as soon as they deliver the new sim they are gonna charge you $295 usd for the first month's tier. But even more, this devalues the sims that are out there, people hoping to sell. Forget selling when people can get it for (or think they are getting it for) FREE. The whole thing just smacks of wrongness. Am I wrong?
