  1. Blender does pretty much anything you need it to do. It is free. There are TOOOOOOOOONS (that is "Tons" with lots of enthusiasm) of tutorials from basics to complex things so you can learn by watching. If you have tons of money to spend or feel comfortable using illegal software as some folks do, then the others might be worth checking out. But for many folks Blender is the choice -- and you will get plenty of help here from the Blender crowd.
  2. 100% invisible on some grids works. Not here though if I recall. You can do 99 OR I typically put down a RUG which solves tons of issues. It is a mesh physics issue and yes unfortunately it happens often with some designers. Oh well. You can of course rez outside and drag in but a rug works well OR you can drag out on top of a couch or whatever. Most times that will work.
  3. SOOOOO Here's the issue and a heads up for folks. I had to complete a W9 form. I have never had to do that before (cashed out last month) AND never recieved any notification that I needed to (I am not a mover and shaker here ). I cashed out $320 which isn't a huge amount. SO for those of you reading this be prepared to go through signing documents (online). The print is infinitesimal and happily I had a "make the print larger" application in Firefox. Otherwise I would not have been able to fill in the form. The form iteself had some issues but I did eventually get it filled in. Now wouldn't it have been nice if they would have WRITTEN ME and told me what the problem was rather than just holding my money. OK. Big sigh here. I remember LONG LONG (like seven years maybe) ago when I didn't get paid (for-e-ver). I put up a HUGE sign in my store yelling at them - LOL. Thing don't seem to change much. Hopefully I will get my money now and not have to wait yet another week. HEADS UP!
  4. I did finally contact live chat. They have no idea what happened but someone is "checking" and they are sorry - LOL. This wasn't pocket change so hope it get's there sometime in the near future.
  5. I sent money to Paypal on the 10th. It is now the 22nd. I have not received the money at Paypal. This isn't necessarily new but I think it is the longest I have waited. LONG weekend.
  6. I think most folks know there has been ongoing "unscheduled mantainence" for a week. Mine JUST came in so they are up to the 3rd it seems. Strangely enough the email came with a header that my transfer had "been approved". Hmmmmmm.
  7. Payments pending beginning 10-3-2013. Some folks apparently got paid yesterday from the 2nd so hoping it will be my turn for ONE pending payment soon. Will obviously be cashing out "more often" from now on.
  8. I am waiting on TWO, one from the 3rd. It sometimes takes longer than it should but with all that is going on with the TOS these days I admit I am a bit worried. May our money arrive soon.
  9. I am over on Aditi most every day with few problems. There was a rollback it seems on "some" accounts (I have friends who seem to be fine) and I was in 2008 garb with the resultant inventory. Reset password, waited a bit over a day and all is well now. I am over on Mesh 3 or Mesh 6 most days so give that a try if you can get there. Agree that an alt account might work better. Seems like some things are account dependent. I can use both Firestorm and the official viewer with no problem (in general) with Mesh uploads.
  10. Looks like you have several issues. Here is what I know about some of them. I am completely missing the preview using an animation issue. I am guessing this may be about clothes which I know nothing about. BUT if you can't get into Aditi even with a new avatar it may be the password bug which is mentioned on the mesh wiki. You can only have one person on Aditi per password. So you can change one of the passwords, wait 24 hours (sometimes less) and you may be able to get on fine. Once you are on Aditi you need to complete a NEW mesh certification test for Aditi. You also need to do that as well as have payment info on file (not necessarily used) in order to upload mesh on Agni. IF you have PIOF and have completed the mesh upload certification (you can check your mesh upload status in your dashboards) then you should be able to estimate. There are times when the uploaded doesn't work. There are some of us that have MORE issues than other . I have been working on a jira for some time now and whatever "my" issue was it is getting better. Since some friends of mine (other countries even) have noted an improvement on uploader uptime then I am guessing it effects a fair amount of folks. But better is a good direction. If you can NEVER get the estimator to work, have mesh upload status OK and some money to upload with then I have no clue. Hopefully some of the possibilities mentioned will help you get to Aditi and try your hand a mesh. Good luck Edit: Also while I most often use Firestorm to upload, there has been ONE (only one so far) where I could upload using the official viewer (the newest as that seems to be what they were working on in my jira) ONLY -- FS did not work. So if you keep having issues keep that in mind. Again, the uploading process while still iffy on Aditi now and then is MUCH better all around.
  11. THANK YOU! I got it. That "Operator Presets" button does SO not look like a BUTTON to me. It looks like a heading for the choices below LOL. Good to know how it works now.
  12. OK. As much as we would like to blame "The Labs" for everything that goes wrong, this indeed sounds like it is YOU . So -- in order to SAVE things in SL as you build, you either need to link all the parts of the item, name it and TAKE A COPY of it (I think this is a right click thing. It is so automatic for most of us it is difficult to remember.) or click on each of the parts and then take a copy of the coalesced item (I see mention of that in other answers). Then LOOK IN YOUR RECENT TAB and you will see the object that you just took a copy of. If you want, you can move it to a folder, like "stuff I am building in December" for example. It is always a good idea to pull out the latest copy -- or at least the last one you have for that time period -- and check it before logging off. Somewhere along the way you are missing a step. If you edit your post to tell folks exactly what you DO to "save", then someone will likely be able to explain what you are missing. Good luck.
  13. OK. This may be very simplistic, but I have been reading the posts here (both recent and ones Google found for me) and I am very confused over the ability to upload accompanying (mapped and assigned) texture files with mesh. So I did a test and got nowhere. If someone can tell me what I missed I would appreciate it. I used the current official viewer (not the one it downloaded just now for me but the "this morning's" version). I made a new material with a texture from my computer, made a UV map. Got everything looking correct on the model and ASSIGNED the material to the mesh. From there I used the uploader and asked it to show me the texture in preview and to upload the texture WITH the mesh. I saw no texture on the preview and while I read that the texture you wanted on the mesh "might" come in a folder along with the mesh, that didn't happen either. All I got was a naked mesh object. I am in Blender 2.64 So, IS this supposed to work? It seems to me that when I first started uploading and you asked to upload the texture with the mesh, it charged you the texture upload fee along with the mesh upload fee. This didn't happen either. This was on Aditi. Any current info would be appreciated as most of the posts, the wiki etc are very old and so most likely not relevant. I can map and upload my textures separately and that works fine for me. I just wanted to see how this other method worked (or not as the case may be). I don't know anyone personally that works in mesh and uploads their textures this way, but posts suggest it is possible. :)
  14. When I contacted Live Support a couple of weeks ago reguarding a similar incident, their advice was to put the ad up again but to make sure to watch your KEYWORDS and CATEGORY carefully as these were the places where people get flagged most often. I did that and changed the category and so far all has been fine. While the Marketplace folks don't normally tell you WHY there was an issue with your ad, they most often give you some sort of message when you log in to your backend and that might help. Agree that a notecard would be good to include so that you are sending folks "something" .
