  1. (Warning : assumed unconstructive answer) Hum, guess I'm going to cry :) Can someone please explain the models bought (or ripped off) external libraries are mostly never upload-ready ?... And indeed 250 U$ for a 3d model is in short a lot of money.
  2. Guess around 570 years with a Nasa's computer... Something to win ? 😎
  3. Hello ainst, you may have some tips and trick at that thread : Good time in Blender
  4. Maybe not all the best but here are some stuff that helped me a lot, and still help me (no specific order) : How to use a specific offset pivot point with SL mesh Texturing your mesh without having black lines or seams Strange white line in AO Blender - Pixelisation on bake Blender - Bake shadows with a transparency alpha Blender - UV unwrapping, pinning, pack islands...

  5. Bonjour Lemickeyyy Tu te rends sur la page Internet de Second Life : https://secondlife.com/ En haut à droite tu click sur Login Colonne de gauche, tu déroule Compte dans la section Accueil et tu choisis "Modifier les paramÚtres d'emails" L'email est partiellement cripté d'astérisques mais il peut te donner une piste.
  6. I share this point of view indeed. From a technical point of view, persons who master building in-game have good prerequisites to create maximised meshes. And to understand how materials work : a good proof is the way the water will work on a mesh, with the usual scripts. Primitives in-game are our mother-meshes, we should not forget it
  7. I had this one time. I had an oldest duplicated version of the model, superposing the final version with the eye off in the outliner. Didn't remember I had made this duplication ^^
  8. Hum.... For me a builder is someone using prims in-game. And so, for me a master builder and over is someone mastering so well his/her build that I may doubt it's prims made
  9. Maybe I don't understand all the scope of your issue but there's a thing drawing my attention : your lowest model is 3 triangles and your object owns 6 materials. Your lowest model should own at least 6 triangles with one different material each triangle. Same for the other levels : you must check they all have the six materials named after the original mesh's. I always create the lowest models from a duplication (SHIFT D) of the original mesh because sometimes the uploading window generate engine won't do the job well. Also, if I use the Decimate modifier, I always check the operation didn't eat a material, by selecting each material. To resume : Material of model is not a subset of reference model : the sub models don't own the same number and/or the same names for the materials. Missing required level of detail : the materials don't repeat on the sub model because not enough triangles. Or some faces haven't been assigned a material.
  10. Bonjour Pierrot et bienvenu sur Second Life ! La recherche Ă©voquĂ©e par marcov existe aussi Ă  partir du viewer : clique en haut "Content", dĂ©veloppe le menu et choisi "Search". (Racourci : CTRL F) Une fenĂȘtre pop-up s'ouvre dans laquelle tu cliques l'onglet "Websearch". Ici tu peux taper des mots-clĂ©s comme "Français", "France", "French" et d'autres. Tu auras alors un choix finalement assez vaste : 1316 rĂ©sultats pour "France" dans la rubrique "Everything". Pour chaque ligne de rĂ©sultat, tu cliques sur cette ligne et elle se dĂ©veloppera. De lĂ  on te propose d'adhĂ©rer Ă  des groupes ou de te tĂ©lĂ©porter, etc. Tu peux aussi ouvrir les profils des francos que tu croises et consulter leurs "Picks". Autres conseils : pense Ă  cocher les niveaux de maturitĂ© qui t'intĂ©ressent. Je te conseille de mettre quelques infos dans ton profil : beaucoup de rĂ©sidents ne t'adresseront pas la parole avec un profile vide. Pas obligĂ© de parler de sa vie perso, mais quelques mots sur ce que tu aimes faire sur SL ; ou des picks des endroits que tu aimes bien donnent des pistes Ă  celui qui consulte ton profil. Le profil est un peu une carte de visite que l'on prĂ©sente aux gens que l'on croise sur SL et qui invitent ces derniers Ă  communiquer avec toi, ou pas Bonne visite de SL !
  11. I searched with "Shadow map" instead of "AO maps" and found that one. It is for Corel x4 but I suppose it will be almost the same for Corel x8. Waiting for the feed back of my friend.
  12. Well my friend is seeking for a tutorial for using the AO Maps like this one for Gimp users. Tried to google but did not find any. Maybe we are not searching with the good tags. I'm French native and he is German and we didn't find any in our own languages too. Thanks again.
  13. Hello the community and thank you in advance ! A friend of mines is using Corel x8 home and student edition and never found how to use the AO and UV maps provided by mesh creators. I googled several sentences and didn't find myself too. Both in English and French. Any helpers around ? Pierre
  14. Thank you here for the help in understanding texture definition for SL use. Kind of existential questions I ask myself since I create assets for SL ^^ I also consider bicubic is "better" than bilinear. Bilinear leads to add a not wanted difference to the "soft" effect of the texture or image. (Sorry for the vocabulary, English is not my native)
  15. Sorry to bother but, for the ones not following that specific project, what an arctan mesh is ? To resume. Thank you the community
  16. I use a specific green for my greebox : HEX 00ff00 ; and set to Full Bright in the Texture tab.
  17. Don't know if it still works but while I was seeking answers for my question Ifound this :
  18. Thank you Chic. I use the Firestorm viewer. Yesterday, I tried a few and the ones that fit my needs the most are : Strawberry Closeups Strawberry Headshots Studio Light [Analu] Neutral Neutral I will certainly adjust Strawberry Closeups, following your link ; thanks again
  19. Hello the community ! I use to shoot the mesh objects I create in a green box. I just shoot them with their AO maps and then remove the green backgroud under Gimp. My question is : which windlight settings are the best ? As of today I use the Midday for the sky and default for the water level (while maybe there is no incidence for the last one) ; but perhaps some are better. Looking forward to reading you, Pierre [Edit] As Chic pointed out, I'm using the Firestorm viewer
  20. Just wondering if I read all the messages in my mailing box ? In the outliner, I hitted the camera icon OFF and then ON and it worked... I don't know how to explain this, I got the idea reading another thread.
  21. Me too ^^ Last time I teached my wife on Blender, it ended I tried to strangle her :))
  22. What you describe here is the main reason I gave up teaching anything (the other ideas are that being a teacher is not enough to play a pedagogical role, and that I'm still learning ). There are two kinds of people asking me help who made me give up very quickly : The ones who are not patient and whant to be masters without learning anything. The first thing I tell them, but they don't listen I guess, is "be humble", "be patient", "learn and learn again", "do and re-do", etc. I started modelling over a year ago and still consider I have things to learn and master. I consider I need to review most of my stuff. Many insist to put the cart before the horse... The ones who take things from external libraries and observe it is difficult to turn them right... So many forum threads I will never give any help ^^ For the other persons : you took the right direction !
  23. TrĂšs bonne initiative et tous mes encouragements !
  24. I asked that question myself in the past and when I started to create meshes I needed to formalise with a kind of tutorial : https://bit.ly/2RdlAnb ; the 3 last pictures
  25. Hello there ! I would start from white background, then add a transparent layer on its top, then add some dirt : Filters > Render > Noise > Plasma Colours > Desaturate > Desaturate > Mode average Then use or add some brushes from/to your Paintbrush tool : you have many googling ; I would use those, or those. Optional : colorize a bit ; maybe a kind of brown ? (Html 2e2609 for me) Then play with the opacity till it fits your expectation (I choose 50 %), remove the white layer and export to .png
