  1. I use paintshop pro with mesh ao shadow maps all the time. it is rather easy to texture, its just like any other paint program where you use layers. psp can save your work in .psd format. using every new layer allows you to multiply burn, etc. until you get the look you want. you can also bring in the uv maps to help you understand the way the texture should lay on the map. there isnt much to it. It just takes a lot of work to get used to working in layers , especially if the ao maps are complicted like those of say......UR. their maps are somewhat difficult to use because you dont know what parts are what unless you test it in world so you have to be in psp and sl at the same time some times. New raster layer is your friend.
  2. flagging the items worked fine. but no one should have to flag so many. it is sad that nothing is being done about this issue that i am aware of........ after thinking this thru even further......... the ones hurt most by this are the full perm creators because this flood of gacha items in the full perm sections is just pushing their listings out of the sight of the builders who might want that product and it affects their income..... for the builder it makes finding the right components to complete your build so your income is affected as well. this is a lose lose situation for the two most vital parts of the creation equation. and then not to mention the annoyed customers who are searching for a new home, or some trees for the garden, etc. and all the get are gacha items, sigh. so who will ever know if so and so came out with a new house this week, i dont even want to use mp anymore because its just a mess. sometimes i feel like gacha is an sl infection. i know that sounds mean, but i am sure when LL comes up with a antibacterial cure for gacha that stops it from infecting every other part of commerce on the mp........ yes, then and only then will i feel better about gacha. until then, i have built up an immunity and i steer clear of it all if i can. but i wont let go of my what next anywhere chair and thats just how it is lol.
  3. The gacha items are like an infection of marketplace. Not to mention a large amount of gacha items are being placed in the wrong categories. Last night I flagged approximately 60 items in the building objects and components category because they do not belong there. That category is for full perm creators' items. I spent at least an hour in world trying to get this point across to the poster of those items who argued with me because they did not understand why the items didnt belong there. Gacha items would best belong in the collectibles category. They are special items that in 9/10 cases are only sold for a brief time and then you cannot get them. That by definition is a collectible. LL can add subcategories to the collectibles section to break it up further. If you are going to be a gacha reseller, putting items in wrong categories is against the tos of the mp so please be sure you are using the right categories in the future. And please readers keep sending suggestions thru the suggestion link posted in this thread. I chose L$ commerce as the category if anyone wants a suggestion on what to choose. It is very annoying to go to the full perm section and find it flooded with 66 gacha items. Something needs to be done.

  9. if you are taking a percent of peoples tips, you arent going to find anyone, its hard enough to earn tips let alone have them taken away from you.
  10. you would probably need a different pair of mesh feet for every pair of shoes as they are not all made the same, you are better off getting slink feet and then buying shoes that are made for the slink mesh feet. that would be your easiest bet. but also means u have to buy all new shoes.
  11. my pets do that all the time, i have zooby pets and a zooby baby and cats from kittycats......... i think that is a lag issue, especially if it only happens on items like that. i dont have a great graphics card so i cant say if a graphics card would improve this at all. but when im not lagging my pets are just fine on my lower end graphics card so my opinion is its not your card.
  12. ever since my sim was restarted last night the textures appear to keep having to refresh themselves, they are clear then go blurry and keep doing this every few seconds. i live on a mainland sim called triampo. i use firestorm, when this used to happen, turning off their http feature for rendering always worked now its not working. anyone know what is going on? thanks.
