  1. But I am sure, it's not rocket science. The store you mention doesn't sell $4 dresses. 3.5 dresses at a price of about L$300 on average, is roughly $1000 an hour, which is a lot less than the number needed for 1.2 million in revenues. The more accurate calculation here without funny extra years to make the outcome so nicely rounded 300,000 dresses * $4 = $1,200,000 Second Life opened in june 2003, which is 12.5 years ago or 12.5 *365 = 4500 days 1,200,000 / 4500 = $265 / day $265 * 250 (very reasonable rate) = L$65000 / day 65000 / 24 = L$2750 / hour So if the store you mention is
  2. Even if they sold that many, those dresses aren't L$1000 a piece, not by a mile.
  3. It's easy enough to make 1.2 MILLION dollars by uploading a dress (or a bunch) to SL of all places? Assume the dresses were uploaded in 2003, when SL opened. That's 14 years ago (that's about as far as we can stretch time right?) so 1.2 million dollars, divided by 14x365= 235 dollars a day, or about ten per hour, every hour, since the beginning of SL. It doesn't add up does it?

Ebbe Altberg states that in just one year, a total of 60.000.000 $ (US) was cashed out of Second Life. Some folks must make a pretty good living of Second Life. He mentiones a fashion designer who allegedly sold 300.000 dresses at 4 $ each. http://thenextweb.com/insider/2015/11/07/think-second-life-died-it-has-a-higher-gdp-than-some-countries/ Are you suggesting that the guy ultimately in charge of promoting Second Life has been caught shamelessly promoting Second Life?

The only things you should not do, is making worn objects with too many polygons or too many high res textures or be lazy and skip the process of making LOD models for your creations.
  6. Tyche's data is more likely you think? It's so obvious, but I'll break it down for the mathematically challenged. If we add up all the sims listed in that post, we get: 350+8106+7680+1564+16+1283+5564+231 = 24794 sims this is the same as the 2742nd prime number plus 1. 2742 is the same as the 400th prime number plus 1. 400 is the same as the 79th prime number minus 1. 79 is the 22nd prime number. This is where we need to look a bit deeper, since we did not add or subtract a 1. 22 is the 9th prime number minus 1 it is also the 9th fibonacci number plus 1 (surprise!) 9 is the 7th fibon

  18. By custom skeleton I meant custom joint positions within the standard skeleton Not sure what you mean by "your" (my?) custom skeleton. For now, all we can use is the standard skeleton, this will likely change when Bento hits the main grid/viewer. A shame the tickbox is not the issue. The only thing I can think of, is that you didn't lengthen the upper arms. It's been a while, but I think that's how you change the skeleton, not by moving the lower arm bones. I'm sure someone else will come along, plenty of Maya users around (including the creator of Mayastar). Good luck!

  20. No idea about Maya or Mayastar for that matter.... but you do need to tick the "include joint positions" box in the uploader to use your custom skeleton. Could be as simple as that.
