  1. I've been here 17 years and yet to see any changes to the MP. Imagine a world where you search for a beard and not get other random stuff.
  2. I spent two hours searching for Catwa Beard, Catwa HDPRO Beard, Beard, Mesh Beard and all results are random with clothing, hair, earrings and all sorts of stuff. I think this has gone long enough. Fix the market place so it's easier to search for items. If I'm searching for Beard, I expect 1,000,000 pages to pop up on beards. Not shoes or sex stuff. It's very sad when you do search for sex stuff, you get children stuff. This is disgusting. Your market place is a hot mess.
  3. I've been in Second Life for 17 years. SL is actually 3 months older than I am. I finally realized that this platform is very expensive. When I realized that it was because of a platform/game called Dual Universe. DU is a metaverse like SL. In DU, you pay $6 a month and must purchase at least 3 months in order to have active service. If you ask me. It's a steal. Why? (BTW not advertising for DU pointing out the obvious with SL). In SL, you get a small piece of land for like what.....$10 a month? If you want a sim you must pay $300 a month. In DU, you get 10 times the size of a SL sim and you can build massive cities. That's only $6 a month. You get a freaking tile that is 10 times the size of SL sims and unlimited....I don't know what to call it let just say prims? Is it because people make money off of SL? Why not take a bigger cut? I don't see why SL can't be affordable for everyone as DU is. You can get more people to enjoy SL without breaking the bank. If World of Warcraft charges $14.99 a month and they have more servers than SL can count. Why the $300 a month? This is why I've been discouraged from SL because I can't honestly afford a sim to build on. Not everyone wants to shop and spend and be homeless in the streets. It's starting to dawn on me that SL is by far the most expensive platform out there. I don't count those stupid sex virtual worlds that charge over $20 a month. Think about it. Novaquark has changed the game. If you see one of their old videos they explain how they control lag with massive people in one area. I know some of you will get all technical with the "Oh SL has mesh and blah blah". What is being changed in SL that is so game breaking that $300 is worth having a sim? Remember! If you don't make money in SL, you are really not doing anything. If SL ever goes bye bye. All that money you spent on items INGAME will go bye bye. The future for us doesn't look too bright.
  4. The last time this happened. I was able to get in the next day. Nobody there to fix the issue. It's late in the am.
  5. What are you are experiencing here is a very very very very old platform. You will experience this for the rest of your life until one day.....BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM. The platform can no longer handle technology and the future. Welcome to old SL where nothing gets updated.
  6. For two days now, I get "Requesting Region Capabilities" when loading and it's stuck that way. When I turn on my VPN, I am able to log in just fine. What does this mean?
  7. Hi, I've noticed SL has brought some classic sims back entirely the way it was once many years ago. Can sims be rolled back? Someone went into a rage with the ability to return items and destroyed a full living Urban city I have created in full detail. I can't begin to explain how difficult it is to put back stuff and restore to last location given the fact grouped items cannot be placed back into last location and copy items cannot as well. Can LL do a rollback on a sim to bring it back to it's normal state? Since it's a server we are on, one would imagine this can be done.
  8. Thank you everyone for the help I really appreciate it. For some my Internet is back to normal tonight. I know that's temporary. Technical support found the issue and hopefully 4 hours from now it will be fixed. The filter in the box has gone bad. I'm not the only one having issues. We'll find out.
  9. Yes I've spoken with Comcast about it. They keep telling me my lines are clean. They've escalated it to the network department and that's been a week now. My gaming experience is screwed on all platforms not only SL. BTW, Really sorry about Mshadowsjj. She follows me everywhere. That block feature is not there for her name. Any way LL can IP block her from SL? She's mentally challenged and she won't go away.
  10. Besides the Internet issue, I've been getting harassed by Mshadowsjj who follows me everywhere on the Internet. I've tried the police and LL and nobody seems to help me in that department either. I thinking about switching ISP's but the problem is they have me locked in a 3 year contract.
  11. Yes same problems on other sims. I have another computer in the house my wife uses. She has the same issue.
  12. Seems like this is not just a SL issue. Been happening to me in Minecraft as well.
  13. I have it set to 1500. I don't use a laptop. I don't think laptops should be allowed in SL if you ask me.
  14. No! I use Kaspersky. I've disabled antivirus and firewalls and issue is still there. One of those freak moments when everything is perfect and all of a sudden 3 months of this for no reason.

  16. My problem is that I'm locked in a 3 year contract with Comcast. I'm at 1,000MBPS down and 45MBPS up. Textures are grey for me and load really slow. The lag is so terrible I can barely move. I randomly start to fall while I'm standing or spin in circles. It's so annoying that I stopped logging in and when I do I just stand AFK.
  17. Hi, After 14 years of Second Life I've decided it's time to retire. About 3 months ago I started experiencing my avatar spin in circles, massive lag, rubber band effect and items rolling back. Rolling back? What does that mean? Well, it's more like ghosting. Create a prim, move it and watch it move back on it's own. The same goes with adding a color to it or setting an alpha. It begins to switch between colors as if it's trying to fight with me. I thought it was a sim issue and was at a point where a Linden had to come and see for themselves. Turns out it wasn't the sim. I use firestorm and that part of support helped me from A to Z with no solution to be found. I called my Internet company and for the past 3 months they've tried their best to find a solution but couldn't come up with anything. The told me all my lines are new and it seems my connection is excellent. So here I am with my last plea to get help if anyone has this issue. We all know Linden labs doesn't do tech support so I reach out to the community for help. I would hate for 14 years of SL experience to be thrown out because of this issue. I was being told that there's a network issue between my network and Linden Labs. How do I go about solving this if Linden Labs cannot be reached for tech support? This has become very stressful moving around my sim which I've been paying $300 a month for the past year. If this cannot be solved, why spend so much when I'm barely on? Has anyone experienced this type of issue or know of a solution. Sadly, I've done everything. Reinstalled windows 10 Updated drivers Tried multiple clients Opened up Ports with port forwarding Set my computer to DMZ on my IP address and opened up my computer to be exposed Disabled anti-virus and firewall connected directly to a modem bypassing a router There's nothing more I can think of. If you have a solution, please let me know. I need to make a decision in my life to move on from SL since this could be the end for me. Thanks, LD
  18. The best part was this. I was disconnected but still maintained voice connection with friends since the voice server did not go down. Ever since the first disconnect and log in issue, I have nothing but problems now with the SL servers and my network.
  19. How is it that my wife can log in on the same network and I can't? When will this end? It's going on 3 weeks with this crap. 14 years not long enough for you people to get it right?
  20. The classic servers are because we asked for it. I've been in wow for 12 years now since vanilla. The game has taken a direction that is bad for the company. Bringing back the classics is the smartest thing to do. Granted it will be a year or 2 from now. The only good thing blizzard did was fix their infrastructure and changed their coding. They were young and new to the business. The mistakes they made are not corrected in a sense of gameplay and looks. As for the game itself, they took a bad direction. A sim in SL is not that big to be honest. I've set my sim up where you TP to a HQ base and pick up missions from quest givers. They lead you around the city and it's not that hard to get lost. There are also walkie talkies that can be used on sims for everyone to communicate no matter how far you are. That keeps people communicating. There are no teleports nor are there any teleports to heads. Flying is disabled so you get the full experience of the Borderland/Mad Max scenery. Having 4 sims connected would be the ultimate setup in my mind.
  21. First off, you guys need to stop saying "LL is not pushing SL users into Sansar". LL would gladly shut down SL and have all the users be in Sansar. Do not be fooled. The end of days is near. Nobody invests into something to see it fail because of something old. anna2358, I've had my major sim wide city up at 3,000 with no issues. This time around it's much lower. Janetosilio, there is absolutely nothing to do in Sansar. It's basically IMVU in 3D. They put you in a little box and tell you to create. It failed the moment they thought about it. Nobody cares about VR. I'm not sure why VR keeps coming back. Black Dragon Client is really good for photo and video creation. I'm sure you've heard of it. Nice pictures. I'm sure you would love my city. I run an Nvidia GTX 970 video card and still use the intel i7 4770k overclocked to 4.7ghz. I'm rocking 32gb of memory power and my Internet speed is between 900-1000Mbps. I get 50-60 FPS. In wow, I get 120-140fps. I'm not sure what kind of computer you have but to me that sounds like defying the laws of computers when it comes to SL. FPS doesn't mean anything in SL as it does for WoW. I know people that run under 30FPS with no lag while others with higher FPS lag. Not really. The human eye can see only up to 30FPS. The human brain knows pass 30. Minecraft is a good example to use. Play minecraft without mods. You'll get the max fps your computer allows. In my case, non modded minecraft is around 500fps which is absurd. The game is so smooth, it makes me want to play it without mods. When I add around 150 to 200 mods, the game jumps down to 100fps sometimes less. I notice how smooth it was before until I added mods. SO the higher FPS the better for gameplay. Remember, the eye only sees 30 but the brain knows pass 30. FYI, low FPS in SL can cause serious health issues to your hands. I know all computers can but SL is no joke when it lags. The struggle that you get in SL with lag the mind tells the hands to push further and typing becomes literally a struggle. I've nearly lost a pinky because of the ALT+CTRL feature to cam around. LL doesn't provide keybinds. LL was riding the VR hype. Honestly! There is no hype with VR. It's dead again. I'm sure it will surface up again in the future. I believe LL intentions are to bring everyone from SL to Sansar. When HELL literally freezes over that will happen. The stupidity that is behind LL makes me believe monkey's run this company. Excuse me, monkey's are probably more intelligent than the LL team. I have spent 14 years in SL and watched it grow. Every single year I've asked myself why they don't do this and do that. The possibilities of investing in a Second Life 2. Bigger, better graphics and a better approach to living. $300 a month to own a sim. It costs roughly around less than $50 USD to probably have a sim a month. LL makes about $250 in their pockets. I don't use my sim for profit. Why am I paying $300 a month? I pay $15 a month for wow. I probably hold up more space on blizzard servers than I do in SL. Again, why $300 a month? Maybe it's time to have a non-profit sim. You've had 14 years to figure it out. Let's go back to WoW. If you played vanilla and see what it is today you'll understand. They went back and saw the mistakes they made and corrected them. What have you done to correct SL. Yes. SL is broken. It's broken before, it's broken now and it will forever be broken. I should never get lag with 30,000 prims. That's 30,000 items. You make me pay $300 for 30,000 items. I believe I've earned a server that can handle 30,000 items with no lag and probably have 60 people on the sim. Get it right LL. Sansar was not the answer. Second Life 2 was. The transition would be smooth and the users would be happy. In the end. I feel limited to what I can do with SL. "14 years later" #sadface Side note: I'm a city builder. It's my passion in SL. My vision to create a metropolis has come to an halt because of sim crossing. If you gave me the ability to actually expand the sim, I would build a game within a game. Can you imagine driving from sim 1 to sim 20? Can you imagine flying from sim sim 1 to sim 30? The dreams of a young man 14 years ago never came true. I still can't believe how these "Pilots" in SL fly from airport to airport. It takes literally 3 seconds from one corner of the sim to the other diagonal. Where is the fun in that?
  22. @Parhelion Palou There seems to be an issue that everyone in SL is having. Maybe some are lucky enough not to feel it. I've never had network issues with SL. Something is brewing and it's really bad. @Penny Patton It blows my mind away that instead of making SL bigger and better, they decide to go the opposite direction. Look at me for example. I built a post apocalypse city. The size of the sim limits my ability to expand and make it look grand. Especially when driving or wanting to do more. I get it it's expensive to have a sim. How doe sit really work? Why can't they upgrade the system and allow for a sim to be 4 times the size and allow us to choose how many prims we want? Suppose I want a sim 10 times larger than what I have but for half the prims? I could build a game within a game in SL that allows for endless play time. I've heard about people flying airplanes from airport to airport. How do you do that on a sim when from corner to the other takes 3 seconds to achieve? 14 years is a long time for SL to be out and still feel and play the same as it did when it first started. I've seen it grow with my own eyes yet.....nothing has changed besides the cosmetic side of it. We all know in the video game industry it's not about looks. It's about how the game plays. Granted this is not a game. It's a great platform to make a game within a game. I'm so limited to what I can do it drives me nuts. I think $300 a month for a sim is too much if you ask me. Time to expand the sims and let our talents run wild.
  23. Hi, My name is Lord Derryth. Most people know me as Deeds Greenacre. I've been in SL for over 14 years now. I've been noticing some strange things happening on my sim. I built an Urban Zombie Apocalypse city. For those that know me. I have an OCD. Things need to be aligned and perfect. We all know that SL is not perfect and it never will be. My roads are in pieces and I use snap to grid to align perfectly with one another. For some odd reason. I've been aligning my roads for the past two weeks. You see. My sim is either haunted or SL on it's last leg. My roads keep getting unaligned. I've noticed buildings moving in front of my own eyes. I don't know if this is a delay of some sort or maybe the sim keeps rolling back 5 seconds. There have been many people stating the same things I have. Their sim is becoming unpredictable and things are moving around. I get it. Sansar! The new project that LL decided would be a great idea. Sadly! It was a poor idea. As I stated before. I've been in SL for 14 years. I've seen this world grow before my own eyes. Why bring Sansar into the virtual world? If it's broken, fix it. SL seems to have been broken for 14 years and never fixed. Now we have sansar. Call this conspiracy theory. Is LL trying to destroy SL and push us to Sansar? I have never seen SL or been in SL dealing with such lag and unpredictable servers for this long. I'm talking about going on 9 days. Can't log in. Get disconnected. Lag to the point nothing loads. Items on sim moving. Major city uneven and nearly destroyed. Everyday feels like a Tuesday. What is really going on here? Is it the end of days?? PS What is this Cloud stuff?
  24. OMG!! This had me dying. I'd like to introduce Shadows to you. She's not autistic but kinda worse then autistic. She's been stalking me for the past 5 months now harassing my RL. We've spoken to the police department in her city about possible suicide threat. She's also been posting my RL information in SL. I did not know this thread was still around and active. No. I'm not new around here. Actually, I celebrated 14 years of SL with Deeds Greenacre in September. Yes. I'm still banned and I don't care honestly. I've managed to build a thriving city in SL and this fiasco is now a distance memory.
  25. Nevermind! I got it. Damn, I will never do that again. lol
