  1. I've had to add more eye puffiness to my shape to get the eyes to not bulge out as shown in your pic as well. So give that a try if the previous suggestions aren't fixing the issue for you.

  2. Charities are still businesses. They have a special classification for being non-profit but they are still a business. I've always seen a tip jar as a means to obtaining income. Thus IMO disqualifies its use in any Linden Home, whether it is located in the old LH continents or in Bellisseria.

    Beats me.  I wear a bento AO with both bodies I've used and never had an issue with hands.   If it's still doing it one Belleza, regardless of what type of AO, than it's not fixed IMO

    The bento bones for the hands are splayed when relaxed (not animated). So any bento hands, if not animated by a Bento AO, will be splayed. As far as I know, the Jake hands would splay even with a Bento AO previously. I believe that has been fixed by the comments I've seen. I don't own a Jake body though so don't have personal experience.

    Check the HUD of the body i think there is a redelivery option on there it'll send you the latest 5.3 body

    The redelivery button on the HUD started with V5. So anyone using a using a version prior to V5 needs to visit the store to get the latest update.

    hello .. i would like to increase the prims for my mainland is that possible .. because i can't find anything like this.

    and if I bought the 1024 and again USD 7.00 / month 1.024 = 2048 then I would have to cancel my current 1024 mainland beforehand so that I can purchase a 2048 mainland ??

    questions about questions

    ... I thank the support in advance for the useful answer

    CHLOE

    If you own a 1024 in Mainland, not a Linden Home, I'd check to see if any land is for sale in your current region. Also look around your region to see if there is any abandoned land available. If you see land for sale you can purchase it and then join it to your current land to increase your LI count. If you see abandoned land, you can send in a ticket requesting to buy a 1024 parcel. I've done this myself numerous times over the years most successfully. And finally, if you don't see any land for sale or abandoned, it might be worth your while to talk to neighbors to see if any of them might want to sell a 1024 parcel.

    But the only way to resolve this is to file a ticket with support and see if you can get it reversed. I have never found LL to reverse even accidental tier-ups even of a tiny amount. 

    Yes, file a ticket. Back in 2008 I mistakenly did the same thing when transferring ownership from one of my groups to another of my groups. I explained what happened and after checking things the support person did fix the issue but warned me that this courtesy would only be offered once, so if I did it again I would suffer the consequence.

  7. This isn't just a guy thing or a Jake thing. As a moderator in the Maitreya Lara Friends group I've had numerous occasions where I've gone to help someone with an issue and it was caused by wearing multiple copies of the body at the same time. Fortunately it's an easy fix and once the person is made aware they probably, well hopefully, won't forget the lesson.

    It's so that the ears can be "high definition"  - a full 1024 pixel texture instead of the tiny section that's in the normal template.

    Oh goody, more lag.

    If a person is using BoM on their avatar then an extra 1024 texture isn't going to cause lag as it gets baked into one texture with the skin and any additional clothing layers. Another reason why BoM is so much better than appliers.

    Debi's elf ears are a significant part of her appearance. I honestly think her ARC is less with the added lelo ears than when she used third party creator's ears. Plus I don't have to buy ears with earrings attached but can pick and choose which earrings to use with my ears. I'm super happy with her ears. And btw, I simply use the included skin texture provided with the lelo head so didn't have to buy any additional skin for the "grey" ears. It was a very simple matter to tint the tattoo slightly to match my skin perfectly.

  9. I, well Debi mostly because Blush isn't in world hardly at all, get compliments quite often. But the main reason I'm responding to this is that I'm one of those who will send an IM complimenting a person on their avie. Anytime someone stands out as having a super well put together avatar I will send the person an IM. My intent is never to strike up a convo, though I do enjoy a good conversation. I just figure if someone has put that much effort into their appearance, they will appreciate a compliment without a come on attached.

    Body fat can be a bit hit and miss depending on body and clothing rigging, it's generally expected to be set at or close to 0, so YMMV with that one.

     

     

    While some may prefer to not add fat, I have to say that I keep at least 20 on the fat slider for my avatars since we got fitmesh. It is extremely rare that I have any fit issues with my clothing. I prefer to keep fat at that slider point because IMO it really does make the shape of the boobs much softer looking. But I also use a deformer to keep my tummy flat as I don't like the puffy stomach that comes with that fat slider.

  11. The one possibly good aspect of the conveyer method is that it will end up supplying resellers with product. People will still "play" the conveyer vendor just like they once played the gacha vendor. They won't care that they are having to pay to get to the next possible rare because they've been doing that all along. It won't matter that they can see it's absolutely NOT something they want because they will simply sell it either at a resale shop or on the MP. 

    The HUGE downside is that when those rares come up on the vendor there will be others around, possibly bots, to snipe the rare. And heaven help those who have any lag at all because even though they might actually hit the vendor first if there's lag the vendor won't know they hit first.

    As a merchant, who never quite felt comfortable selling through a gacha vendor so they sit unopened in my inventory, this conveyer method seems even more icky to me than the original gacha. 

    This conveyer method might pass legal scrutiny, but does it really make sense for a creator to use this method? I sure wouldn't want to be on the other end of all those PMs from customers who lost a rare after paying for several unwanted items just to be out sniped by a bot or someone with a better connection than mine.

    Possibly. 

    You are not required to pay to get it to advance to whatever you want.  You can sit there and wait for someone else to buy the stuff you don't want, hoping to get the stuff you do want.

    I can just see it ... one person steps aside hoping someone else will pay until what they want comes up .. and then what happens when they both want that item? They fight over it? I dunno as a creator I don't want my customers put in a position to have to fight with each other over my products.

    I wouldn't bet on that just yet.  If you are paying money for a known item, it should be fine ---- unless the vendor becomes locked to the buyer for possibly buying whatever shows up next.  If that is the case, then it might not be legal.

    If there is no way to advance the menu choices other than paying to do so then the customer is paying for a chance at something they want showing up next ... aren't they?

    I just bought some gacha :D and came across this vendor which should be ok regarding the rule that you need to know what you are paying for.
    And I like it much better than the usual ones because I know I won´t buy a double next.

    Only way this works is if it has a button to advance the choices without paying to advance through the conveyer. Of course then it's just a regular multi item vendor and not a gacha at all.

    you all have to forgive me for worrying that many makers will just roll up shop and leave instead of going back to the old ways

    I'm a creator and have been in SL for many many years. I've seen many situations like this. Honestly, it's still venting time for many creators who maybe panic before really giving it some considerable thought about how to work out this new twist.

    What does concern me is merchants who might buy into some of these less than legal ideas to get around the ban, and then having creators spending valuable time and energy trying to finagle around it rather than just hitting it head on and moving into a new constructive path.

    Unfortunately for those who made business out of reselling gachas the writing is on the wall. I really don't see an alternative for them. Creators can find ways to sell their products. But resellers won't have product now. Maybe time to learn blender. :)

    Laid out like that yeah, but it's not a gamble with the product they're purchasing like the new policy explicitly states. The conveyor just shows people new products they can choose to buy if they like and they know full well which product they get when they buy it, according to the letter of the new policy they're just spending money to manipulate the vending machine which is just incidental.

    Breaking the spirit of the law while straining at the boundaries is still legally unsound.

    that's what I have been saying.. no money must be used, but can be.

    hell, there are other freebie schemes in SL that drive traffic that can be combined with a conveyor to allow for both winning for free and buying

    It's the can be that crosses the line. A person spending money to buy something on the conveyer to advance the conveyer hoping that the rare will come up is gambling.

    what I'm saying is this, if you can get the rare item for free then the gambling part is not there. there is no "pressure" to buy to get the item

    Are you saying that no one has to pay any money to participate in the conveyer? If no, then good to go but the moment anyone spends money participating then it crosses the line because money has been spent and there are odds in obtaining the rare.

  19. The point of lucky chairs is to increase traffic not to make a profit. The conveyer belt method is designed to produce income with a chance of getting a rare. Sounds like you are comparing apples and oranges but not seeing the difference between the two.

    Is that with the LL viewer?  I can't find anything about clearing L$ history in Firestorm, so I'm still confused on this functionality.

    Firestorm. Here's a pic. I emptied it early this morning before reading this post. Again, I can't verify it's the actual cause but it makes sense to me, and I will be careful to check this the next time this occurs.

    Unless it's a different issue, there is a 'normal' thing where un-deleted payments in your transaction history keep getting added to IMs. So along the lines of what @Karly Kiyori said, check your 'Transactions History' tab.

    If it's what I think, the list you showed is NOT actually payments from over the years - it's probably just the SAME single recent payment (or collection of payments) repeating in the chat each time you open it, making it look like a lot more.

    While ever the transactions history tab shows any transactions, it will keep repeating them in any IM chat you open with the person who paid them to you. So even if it's just ONE payment listed, it will keep adding it to your chat each new session. Delete it (or any others) from your transaction history, and they will stop repeatedly getting added to the IM chat window.

    This has happened to me on numerous occasions through the years. It always seemed quite sporadic though, but now that you mention the issue of clearing your transaction history (in the viewer not on the website) I think that is probably why it happened. I typically clear that transaction history daily but sometimes I get lax and forget to do that. Since I haven't actually verified if that was the cause I can't say for sure but it certainly fits my experience.

  22. One of my tests for any skin I demo is does it look good in midday lighting. If it doesn't, I don't buy it. I use midday setting a lot of the time and it's my preference for checking how things look. I'd be very upset if midday lighting was not available.

    I am having an issue with the textures in the content creation pack... none of them match (or even come close) to the colors on the houseboat itself. I got a houseboat a few days ago and tried to decorate it. Wasn't working for me, so decided to put up a wall in the barnacle model to separate the lower part into two rooms. So I went to the texture pack and selected Innerwall - Gray. The wall was a drastically different color than the boat walls. So I started trying all of the wall colors and every single one of them.. the wall color and the corresponding color in the texture pack (applied on a prim) were not even close.

    So then I decided to try some of the other textures, like the floor textures, the outer textures, the deck textures, etc. NOT a one of them was even close to a match for what the houseboat looks like. I tried it with the default EEP environment for the region and also with the old windlights.. Still no similarity. I tried using full bright to see if that would fix the mismatch.. nope did not!  I even experimented with enabling/disabling the advanced lighting model... No matter what I did, I could not get close to a match.

    I cant figure out what is going wrong here. All of the other house types, the textures in the content creation pack match well. Houseboats -- no similarity. I find it hard to believe that a content creation pack could be that off, but I also cant figure out what I could be doing wrong to make such a drastic mismatch. (I am an experienced builder so it is not a matter of not knowing how to apply, scale, etc a texture...)

    Any suggestions?

     

    The textures included in the pack for the interior walls are the base textures without the baked shadows that are in the actual houseboat builds. I used the base textures and made new textures adding the ambient occlusion manually. I wasn't able to get an absolutely perfect match, but I was able to match it close enough to feel comfortable with the results.
