  1. You have proven well beyond a shadow of a doubt that you didn't get what I was saying. Do you think your customers are that stupid that they would stand spinning the wheel till it came up what they wanted? Such a low opinion of them. Or perhaps you simply forgot what you yourself said was the purpose of the gacha. Either way, Not my circus, not my monkeys. Don't care one way or another. I tried, god knows why, but thanks for reminding me .
  2. Again.... You don't get it. Drop it. Have fun doing whatever you do.
  3. From what Patch has said so far, yes, it seems as if that would work. But then again, I am in the very small group here that isn't an international law expert. But yup, seems reasonable
  4. OK, so you clearly have zero concept of the suggestion. 1. The gacha is history, you cannot keep it. 2. You stated that the purpose of the gacha was to let people have a fun way to not have to choose. Why on Earth would someone keep spinning and not simply buy the freakin' thing? Those people would not have used the gacha anyway, they'd have simple clicked and bought. 3. My suggestion was a way to approximate the experience. I thought it was pretty plain to see, but I guess not. The bottom line is that I saw someone losing an option, and thought Hey, I have an idea that will add some element of fun back.... Sorry, this is what I get for trying to offer ideas, and why I do not normally help unless I'm getting paid. Just forget I mentioned it, and kiss your gacha goodbye. Because the upshot of this is that the machine is on death row, it has no appeals left, and the execution date has been set. R.I.P
  5. Or, if you are blessed with a nose that can take all the paying-through, you can make then "forevers" Gonna need a strong nose for that one
  6. Because they are taking a free spin for a suggestion, then following it or not. The item you pay cannot be the item making the random selection.
  7. Yes. And you said that the reason for it was for those that can't choose and just want something random. The difference in my suggestion was that the item making teh random pick is not the same item that is being paid, and when they do pay they are not getting a random selection. Read back through the thread, I know it's long, but Patch has provided the answers on all of this.
  8. How about making a spin the wheel type thing to replace the gacha. Can't decide on one? Spin the wheel for a suggestion. If they spin a 5, they buy #5 and you have accomplished the same thing. The key difference is that when they made that transaction, they know what they were getting.
  9. It doesn't work that way. When you buy L$, LL is just the broker. You are buying from an individual that is selling. ALso, any fee that you pay to LL evaporates. It has no value to LL as they are the source of them. They are simply removed from the economy to help balance out the stipend payments that go out every week. Without a good money sink, the market will be flooded, they money will lose value because there is too much around. It sells for less when creators cash out, so they in turn raise the prices on items to compensate for lost real world revenue - and the inflation train is off and running till the bubble pops.
  10. I just became aware of this thread, but for those of us who have always used the "Inventory" tab in Places to search for Landmarks, this is quite a blow. There has been no need to move landmarks from the folders, just hit the Inventory tab and search. I really cannot understand how this could have possibly confused anybody.... Seriously. From other things I read here, this "Updated" UI is pretty much going to suck. File it with EEP I guess.
  11. Think of it as an accidental double post
  12. I did speak with Sandy eventually and was able to explain the situation. Maitreya Isle has always welcomed everyone in whatever form they may present - within reason of course. But what we have never allowed or tolerated is harassment of others for any reason. The activities that have been going on at our store recently created a situation that we could not ignore. With the arrival of vampire HUDs that allowed attacks without consent, we began to see more and more complaints, upwards of 30 a day recently. This was no doubt due to the fact that a group of vampires had claimed our region as their "territory" and were, as a member of that group said to me, "protecting what's [theirs] and establishing dominance". This was done by attacking vampires and non-vampires alike. We are fully aware that most vampires do not behave like this, in fact as often as not the attacks were made on vampires. Could we have simply put up a sign? Sure. And who would abide by that sign? Not the attackers, just the victims. Yes, we did try the "Ask nicely" approach - it was an utter failure. We have an automated system in place now that will temp ban and teleport home. The ban duration is short, just enough really to keep someone from TPing back repeatedly to continue an attack. The system cannot read intent. But it can detect the HUDs and fangs if they are part of the system. We don't want anybody attacked or griefed - no matter what their form. And our vampire friends are just as welcome as always, along with everybody else. Just disarm yourself first. Thanks p.s. We are not asking anyone to change their appearance, all we care about is the scripted systems.
  13. If the HUD will open ands close and change tabs, the problem is not the HUD. Odds are the body has no scripts in it, but can't say for sure without checking it. And Link Replace will make replacement easy, especially if the settings were backed up on a Save Stick.
  14. That's what Link Replace is for. https://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/fs_linkreplace
  15. I'm surprised you don't see more of that, it's quite common in RL to enclose part or all of the area under the house and use it as a garage, either with solid walls or lattice.
  16. This thread might illustrate the reason that some stay away, though this on isn't extreme by any stretch of the imagination. I am rather surprised to learn that we have no CSR's and no chat group. It's actually a rather busy group with an awesome and helpful staff. There is a group joiner in the store, it's in my profile, and its even in my IM autoresponse. But one thing is true - The kit is indeed impossible to get if you refuse to contact us or even apply.
  17. If I had a question about something that I was concerned could land me in court, the court of public opinion is certainly not where I'd ask it. I"m pretty sure the "Someone not connected with the brand in the forums said it was OK" defense is considered weak. Officially: Yes, you can use the name and even the logo if your item is intended to be used with the Lara body. That is where our involvement ends. All the advice you got about making sure customers know it's experimental and offering demos, while we cannot require that, it is excellent advice. As far as everyone knowing about getting kits, well, you don't. You know hearsay. But you have never applied for one and you have never contacted me.
  18. So what they are telling us is that a ho cut the fiber? It does appear to be regional, or maybe just random luck, but I got in finally
  19. Also, on some versions of the Omega Relay there were check boxes for different parts of the body and by default Hands/Gloves and Feet/Socks was left unchecked by default. Worth looking at if you have that issue
  20. v5 AutoHide allows the user to bring up the menu and either remove or alter the AutoHide configuration even in v5 clothing. Unfortunately there is no way to make that retroactive because v4 simply didn't have the code to enable it. But we can have it going forward as designers switch to the new script
  21. The HD nipples are an overlay, like a tattoo. As noted in the User Manual, they may interfere with tattoos that cover the nipple area - blended alpha clashing is not a new thing. Depending on the tattoo, you may be able to go into Show/Hide in the Layers tab and turn off the part of the tattoo that covers the upper chest.
  22. The intention was to express that we don't plan to leave anybody 'high and dry' and plan to support what I/we feel will be a gradual transition to BoM for most users. We realize that some will dive in head first and that's great. Others for a variety of reasons may be slower to change over, and yet others will find themselves somewhere in the middle. We hope the next version of the body will be something that everyone can use whatever way works best for their individual needs. I'm not speculating with this, Onyx and I co-wrote that blog post, and since the lines you quoted are mine, I don't have to guess at the intention behind them.
  23. Doesn't sound like it from what source? No official announcements have been made regarding how it's being handled. Speculation, predictions, and rumors in a forum thread are not quite the same thing as, you know... A statement from someone who actually knows.
  24. True, and BoM is only 1 part of the upcoming update. "Activating" BoM is nothing more than applying an LL specified texture to the mesh. That's why the Relay/HUD was made and distributed while work continued on the full update. So there we have 2 responses in a row from people that actually know what's going on. Has that ever happened in the SL forums before?!?
  25. There is no public Beta version of the Maitreya Mesh Body - Lara. There has never been a Beta available to the public. You might see clothing items listed as Maitreya Beta - that would refer to the clothing itself, indicating that the rigging of it is experimental by the maker of the clothing.
