  1. Doing a lot of hanging out in SL lately (been online a fair amount) and I'm looking to spend the time with some interesting people. I haven't found any one thing to ground me in SL yet. I usually spend my time online messing with my avatar's looks and teleporting from sim to sim aimlessly just checking things out. Ideally I'd like to meet some people that could introduce me to some new things. Maybe you're already into a family or other types of rp or maybe you just know some cool hang out spots. I'm interested in building if anyone knows more than the basics about that. AND I'm interested in meeting and at least chatting with new people even if you don't fit any of the above just to have fun. Also be open minded (I know just saying that is a bit vague but it's necessary. lol)

  3. Thanks for the insights everyone! I finally got the issue resolved - it seems a number of you were correct, I was simply rezzing the item too close to other things. Once I found a large enough area all was well! Yay! Thanks again for all the help people of the forums! : )
  4. First off, let me start with the obligatory, "Sorry if this isn't the right place to post this" line. (I genuinely don't know if this is the approperiate place) So I'm having a small problem with a rezzer. I bought an airship quite some time ago and I was trying to use it today for some rp-ing. Well when I used the provided rezzer parts of the ship showed materialized but they were all jumbled up and not in the right placings. This had never happened before. Add to the first problem that everytime I've tried to use the rezzer to de-rez the 'scene'/item(s) it seems to copy a new set of the items into my objects folder. I am completely unsure of what to do in order to get the rezzer to act normally and to get my ship back in working order. I had thought about trying to get in touch with the original seller but the ship is no longer available in the marketplace and I couldn't find anything on it in the in world search. Anyone know of any solution or have suggestions?
  5. So after only a week I can honestly say that I am sooo overwhelmed by this whole process! I've started learning a few things but ultimately I'm lost again. I've even taken to writing things down in a notebook! This is going to be a long journey! But I came back to say thanks to everyone that contributed information and offered up their help! Thank you so much!
  6. Thanks so much for the info Rolig and Amethyst! I know that it will be something that I'm going to have to work at for a time but all the information I was coming across made it feel like I was going from one to one hundred. I do have a bit of experience with Gimp and Photoshop as far as editing photos but not with creation fo textures. Blender is completely new to me so I'm thinking that will be the biggest hurdle. I will definitely be checking out the link provided and look into some of the in-world classes available. Thanks again! Also keep posting links to beginners tutorials and any info that you feel would help me in my pursuits everyone!
  7. Hello there passerby, So I've recently begun trying to create my own clothing in sl after hearing that it isn't a terribly difficult process (depending upon what it is you want to create.) Well I seem to be having quite the opposite experience and having a time figuring things out. I have taken a look at the forum posts regarding this subject and googled a few things as well - but I'm still lost. Most of the tutorials I've come across so far use language that is a little confusing and talk as if the user is already fairly familiar - either that or the tutorial refers to a specific version of programs and plug-ins and the like. I was hoping that someone could point me in the right direction of a very simple to use/beginners tutorial for making garments and the basics of sculpting. I've have Gimp and Blender and I am a Mac user. If there's a "How to make clothes in SL for dummies" site point me in that direction! Thanks in advance!
  8. Awww! Alright. Well thanks for answering my question and a swift reply. :matte-motes-bashful-cute-2:
  9. So I had a quick question - is there any way at all to organize your sl inventory and items without logging in and being in-world? I ask because I don't always have a reason to be in world and would like to be able to rename objects and organize folders outside of sl. I really doubt already that this is a possibility - but I thought I'd inquire about it anyhow.
  10. Alright, so I've been through a bunch of different scenes/roleplaying themes that are popular in sl and now I'm thinking I want to be apart of a family and family rp. Now I'm looking to be a kid (well more so a teenager) but I'm not sure how to go about doing so. I know that you can just go to a sl adoption agency but how do you know what you're getting in the people that you match up with? Like...I'd like to have a room and know kinda what the people expect of me and for them to know what I expect of them. So this is partially a post to find a family and a thread to get suggestions as to how to I can better the finding a family process for myself. Ideas....
  11. I bought a giant airship and I just realized I have no place to rez it. : ( Anyone know a nice sized sim with open permissions where I could rez it just to get a look at the entire thing? Discuss.
  12. Hey there, my name is Jagdish. Making another one of these threads to try and meet new people. I can't seem to find lasting friends in-world and I would really like to have people to hang with and talk to on the regular. Come talk to me like....nao!
  13. I have purchased fifty dollars worth of skins and I never feel comfortable with my shape. It's a process. You've just got to play with your looks and ideas until you find something you like and makes you happy.
  14. In terms of skin color/complexion - something like this. Not a matte color/shade like in anime of course though. In terms of shape and musculature on the skin I'd like something like this: A body type relative to a young male. Thin but still masculine in nature. My problem with the shapes I've been finding for boys and younger males for the most part have a feminine nature about them. I don't mind the more 'cutesy' faces but the body types that are built on the female model and sport wide hips and rounder bottoms. I've tried simply switching a modable shape over to the male model but weird things happen (imo) and I still don't get the shape I'm looking for. How would I go about making my own shapes and skins? (*begins googling tutorials*)
  15. I hadn't really thought about taking that approach but won't that effect how the skin looks on the shape?
  16. So I've been having a lot of trouble finding a suitible shape and skin for my new avi - it's becoming particularly frustrating because it feels so close but yet so far away and I don't think I'm being overly picky. I'm looking for a high quality skin - dark in complexion with nice musculature. Then, I'm looking for a shape that works well for a young male/ teen boy but I don't want a crazy femboy shape deal. I've spent hours looking both in the marketplace and in-world but I just don't seem to be finding what it is I'm looking for. So what should I do? Change my tastes and expectations a bit? Go the custom avi route and try to find someone make exactly what it is I'm looking for? I was hoping that someone would have some suggestions as to where I could search specifically. Comments. Suggestions. Help? lol
  17. So I've been on secondlife for a little while now and my biggest complaint is with the rp- community and the rp that's available. Just about every sim and storyline seems to die off fairly quickly and it always seems to be because there isn't enough direction. "This is a future rp! And go" And without much more direction than 'no vampires' 'no fantasy creatures' things go haywire pretty fast. So I was thinking about orchestrating an rp that's a bit more in depth in terms of backstory, plot and what is and isn't allowed within the confines of the world being played in. My question is would this be an idea that would be more successful and popular among rp-ers. For the most part rp for many people is about being able to have a certain amount of freedom over character creation and their own actions. Minimizing some of that might make things less fun for those participating - having someone act as a DM of sorts I mean with stricter world rules. Help?
  18. I've been in and out of sl for years now - and I totally have to agree. I want so badly to find a role-play or role-playing community to be apart of or to start learning how to create content. Just chatting would be nice. But I haven't really come across a good way to do any of those things nor the communities I'm looking for. What I have seen and found is a ridiculous amount of ways to get it on and the same amount of partners ready and willing. I won't say that I haven't enjoyed some 'sl bad time' but I wish there was more to things here. I honestly feel sl is mostly about trying to look good and for no other purpose than to get laid at times.
  19. I don't think there's anything wrong with living your real life or second life exactly the way you want to - dance and dress up whatever avatar you want to. If you're a girl and you wanna play as a guy no prob and vice versa. As long as what you're doing doesn't concern anyone else - then do whatever you want to. But I think that as soon as you start to interact with other people in sl, rl or that interaction level where your sl begins to cross over into rl - then you have to be immediately honest with the people around you. IMO this is especially true when it comes to 'real' relationships. If you're just role-playing that you are carrying on a relationship with another person while in-world/ in sl this is one thing. If you're carrying on what is supposed to be a more in-depth relationship with another person then they deserve to know who you really are - who's controlling the avatar they are kissing and whatever else with. My stance is if you feel like you're lying or that you're concealing the truth for one reason or another (no matter what that reason may be) then that's exactly what you're doing. No excuses.
  20. Wow. Look at this place! I didn't think this would get so many replies! Thanks everyone! Sorry I haven't been online this week much.I'll be sure to add everyone and hopefully I'll see you all in world. Um and as someone mentioned this thread would probably be better if I mentioned what I liked and was interested in. I'm really into art and in-world I would like to spend most of my time rp-ing. I would also like to learn clothing creation for SL.
  21. Cool! I'll add you! Thanks for being so friendly : )
  22. Boy...do I feel like a lamer making this thread. Hi, my name's Jagdish and I'm an on again off again resident of SL. I've had some trouble in the past making last friends in-world so now I'm trying this thread. Come talk...like...nao!
  23. I wonder why so many sims and rp's die down so quickly. Lack of dedication? idk...
  24. I've been looking all over the marketplace for clothing and looks that will suit my needs but haven't been able to find a thing! I am currently seeking a talented and experienced clothing creator/designer to work with in order to create various clothing for me : ) I'm willing to pay if that's what it takes. Contact me if interested. ; )
  25. Does anyone else feel like it's impossible to find a good group or place to rp with/at? I've been in and out of secondlife on account of this. Every time I find an rp I like it diminishes after a short while. People stop coming online - sims die down - story goes south or was barely there to begin with. So the question is: Where does one go for quality rp-ing in secondlife. The answer is beyond me.
