    Listen to Nearby Chat....

    OK.. I'm a beginner here.. tho do know enough to be 'dangerous' with scripting. I've search library for what I'm seeking but didn't find anything. I THINK it's a simple addition to my overall project. I want a script to 'listen' to Nearby Chat for a specific 4 letter word. When word is entered, then I want to 'continue' to do next task... then reset to idle listening again. 1.. Listen for WORD 2. WORD is entered... so continue 3. Do next thing (got script for this... basically.. Get Data and OwnerSay) 4. Return to Listen for that WORD again. May be heading into the tutorials if I can't find anything, which is what I should do.. but I thought I'd ask here first! Thanks for any comment/help!!

    Where to Start

    I never know how to start these posts but maybe I should give you a little background - I am Rhae and this is my first year on Second Life. About three or four of the nine months I've been on SL, I've been away, but I've always been curious about building mesh. Granted, part of the reason I started wanting to do it was because I couldn't always find what I want, but I've finally decided to take the initiative and start by, well, getting Blender. I've looked up tutorials, scrolled through pages, but all of it is too advanced for someone who doesn't even know how to adjust the camera view yet. I've spent few minutes, learned few of the basics, and plan to keep at it until I am comfortable with the controls. But, as someone with anxiety, the fact that I don't even know what the next step is - is a little unsettling to me. If I asked you for a guide, for a 101, for a list of what you should get or what you should learn first - what would you include in it? I feel at loss, because my brain is shouting words I've read over and over again like 'rigging' and 'texturing' and 'baking' and 'developers kit' when I don't even know what I would need to start. I don't want to make clothes, for example, that are for standard sizes (alone). It feels a lot like attempting to learn a language without knowing the alphabets. And I don't know, I want a place to start. A list of essential programs and add-ons and items as well as a list of, well, what you should learn. Obviously, once I cover the basic and learn to be comfortable with it, the rest would come from tutorials and blogs and forum posts but... I'd benefit from having a place to start and others might, too! Thank you and I am sorry for rambling.

    Cant seem to finish Tutorial?

    Hi, I just started playing the game and was going through the tutorial. At some point the tutorial had me go to Social Island (I think?) And now I have two blue blob widgets on my screen: "Tutorial L$ Balance: 50" and another bubble whose purpose seems to walk me through the tutorial. But the "Next Step" area is blank, and to the left of that it just says "You can repeat tutorial steps if you want yadda yadda". Does anyone know where I need to go to finish the tutorial? I tried transporting to something that sounded correct, but said I cannot TP there. Any help would be useful, thanks! I've added a screenshot. Note that clicking around on the bubble to the left does nothing except minimizing it.

    Avatar Terminology & Mesh Directions?

    Hi, All!I signed up for Second Life not too long ago and am beyond confused and overwhelmed. Everyone in NCI has been incredibly friendly, but I have received far too much conflicting advice and spent tons of money buying things that they’ve advised me to (that I don’t even know how to use).For starters, would you mind defining (in SUPER simple terms) what exactly all of these words mean:- Alpha?- Mesh?- Bento?- Appliers?- Skins?- Omega?- Relay?I have followed directions and USED some of these things, but have no understanding as to what they DO. A comparable situation would be teaching someone who knows nothing about fish how to set up an aquarium; you can tell them to connect the airline tubing to the air pump and then to the air stone, but they most likely will have no clue what each of those items actually DOES for the tank.I started out with a custom avatar called Elleria (the Vampire). So far I have purchased a Maitreya mesh body (Lara) and a Catwa head (Cami). However, when I add those two items and then go to “Edit My Shape,” I am either unable to adjust all of the settings OR my body pops right out of my dress. I would also like my skin to be very pale, so other users recommended that I purchase:Folder title: Omega System Kit - Catwa- Omega System Relay HUD Catwa v1.7 (no modify) (no transfer)- Omega System Relay HUD - Catwa v1.8E (no modify) (no transfer)- Omega System Kit - Catwa v1.8E (no modify) (no transfer)- Omega Catwa HUD Skins v2.17 (no modify) (no transfer)Folder title: Omega System Kit - Maitreya- Omega System Relay HUD for Maitreya v.07 (no transfer)- [LNL] Omega System Kit - Maitreya v1.7 (no transfer)- Omega System Kit - Maitreya (no modify) (no transfer)- Omega System Kit - Maitreya AF Folder title: {Bambi} - Catwa Bento Cami Skin Appliers + Shape (CATWA)- {Bambi} - Catwa Bento Cami Shape (CATWA) (no copy) (no modify)- {Bambi} - Catwa Bento Skin Appliers + Shape (Catya Bento) (no modify) (no transfer)I have NO clue what ANY of the above means or how to use it or why so many items are needed just to have a pale skin color, haha.If anyone is able/willing to teach me the ins & outs of SL clothing, as well as help me make a character with a long face, large/round hazel eyes, a slender body, and pale skin, PLEASE let me know. I will even send pictures of my computer screen for reference and compensate you for your time messaging back and forth with me, if need be. I feel like giving up, but I was so excited to play this game. ?
  5. So, like the title says I'm looking for someone to teach me about building here in SL. I've been here about a month now and the ability to build is really what has drawn me to SL. I'm working on degrees in architecture and interior design IRL and unfortunately there isn't much practice that we do IRL, so for more practice/creativity I decided this was the proper place for me to be. Anyway, So I'm looking for someone to teach me the basics of building homes in SL. I've had not much luck in buying too many homes in SL that I'm completely in love with besides 1. The land I'm on I can't currently use it because the home is too large to fit nicely for me. I've got a place that we can use to build, so don't worry about that. I've got 1250 prims at my disposal so I think that allows us plenty of space to work. I'm looking to learn also how to change the textures of the walls/flooring without screwing it up too much I've dabbled in texturing, but sometimes I can't get it to look perfect. Before you ask, yes I have visited Builders Brewery and other places people have suggested, but I'm looking for more of a private "on my land" lesson. I do have quite a few textures that I've ran across and a 30x30 grid. If anyone is interested in helping me out, I'd greatly appreciate it. We can discuss compensation, scheduling, and availability as well. Please contact me in world. Sometimes I forget to check the forums for responses. If I'm not available or am afk please just drop me a notecard and I'll reply ASAP. Thanks! Emma Tudor (EmmarieLee)
