  1. Building my mesh house

    Hello: Apparently this topic is very often. I am learnig to build. I am trying to build my house, my mesh house. I started in SL editor doing some base model. I imported it to my PC to work with it in Sketchup and/or Blender. For me, the first one is more easy to use, but I am learning slowly the second that confuse me a lot. I made this basement for the house (with Sketchup), with door and one floor, export my collada but... when I try to upload to SL, any time, any way, I can't walk through doors and some parts of the floor, stoped by "invisible" walls (triangles) that already can be seen during the analysis, no matter if I use my collision file or just high option. I tried to simplify with Blender the triangulation but, as I said I am so confuse with Blender tools and shorcuts. When I do a simple room, more short than this, I can go inside and walk, but not this time. I always convert the character to prim when edit the mesh in SL. Simply, the question is that I don't know or don't understand how to control that invisible triangules. Maybe I am doing wrong in the process of building it self before upload or during the process of upload. I looked a lot of videotutorials, read a lot of comments and I feel as lost as if in the begining. Please, help me. Explaining me building mesh for dumps and have a good control of physics, step by step! BTW, I discovered saddly that the options to upload are quite differents in beta grid than in normal grid, with less options abled, for example in the section of simplifying methods. If there is someone that also can explain me in spanish, much better.
  2. hi everyone, my passion is building. Im looking for someone who has Land and doesnt know what to build there - I will help you to create something nice and creative for free. Preferable would be an adult land with a city at night theme. The Themes I build are restricted to my components I got in my Inventory - I only do mesh builds - no full-prim builds. But if you buy me specific mesh building kits or structures I could work with that. Down there are pictures of what I created so far. Greetings. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Briar Rose Realm/135/17/2005
  3. Prim Ceiling Increase

    I was just wondering with all the land changes that are being made, is there any chance of an increase of the prim ceiling. I enjoy the ability to have the additional prims. However it would be nice to build even 500m-1000m higher. Is there a reason there has not been a change to this limitation or are there any plans to change it in the near future. As someone who enjoys riding bike tracks and roads, I would love to see what builders can create with more space. Thanks!!!
  4. I have uploaded textures before without any issues. However, this time I am seeing quite the resolution loss on the textures I am uploading. The textures are 1024 by 1024 resolution both on my computer and in world. The texture is a rose knit pattern that is clear on my computer and if i load in-world using 'local' as a temp it shows all the details no problem. However once I upload into world the resolution is lost. There is immediately noticeable loss of resolution. Image was uploaded "Use Lossless Compression" checked. I have tried uploading the image as both a PNG and as a TGA file. The main details become smeared as if the image was dropped to half resolution. This makes the texture totally unusable for build. Why is there such resolution loss and what can be done to fix this?
  5. Building Platforms 128X64 meters 1000 prims, L$1000 per week. No restrictions, just follow Linden Labs Terms of service for M rated region. Access to the surface via teleporter to marina and docks which connect to 8 protected second life waterways. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Rekall/148/251/1500 http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Rekall/148/247/2578
  6. Learning to build

    I am trying to learn to build, things other than my square, boxy, houses. So, I am trying to build a wall fountain. Regarding the texture I am told to click on "Select Face". Easy enough. This is what it says: Put a check mark in front of "select face". --> Bottom face, color dark mossy green to black. --> Top face *Horizontal scale = 1.0 *Vertical scale = 0.2 Texture rotations = 90 Get out of "select face". My question, where the heck are "Bottom Face" and "Top Face"? I see nothing in the build interface referencing this at all. Thank you, very much.
  7. Builder Looking for work.

    What makes a good build a good build is a solid Idea of what you want. Doesn't have to be the whole idea but it has to be some what of a idea. Like I want a purple dance club I saw this club on a picture or in second life I want something like this. Then we can go over details of what you want. So pictures is always a plus gets things done faster and lets me know what you want. I can build anything from a club to a store to a photostudio. I aslo can do events parties weddings and so on. So if you are tired of seeing the same store everywhere you go. (we all are). hit me up. I have been building since 2005. (I prefer if you hit me up inworld to talk about what you want done on this exciting journey) Happy Toshi) https://www.flickr.com/photos/144280667@N03/albums

  9. Builder Wanted

    I am looking for quotes from experienced mesh builders for a project in two parts. Part A: Approximately 150x100 meters, 3 stories, interior only (partial exterior, as seen from windows), grand hall, lounges, cellar and roman style baths. Part B: Small lobby in same design as part A, clerk counter, faux elevator. I will provide a mock-up and design suggestions as well as a few must-haves, but I understand how freedom of creativity can often lead to better results. I want to be well involved in the creative process as well as approve certain aspects of the build as it progresses. You have several previous works you can show me and you have a clear understanding of quality work. Please contact me in-world with a quote or if you have questions to clarify any of the above. I am often AFK and might miss messages, so please leave me a notecard.

  12. Returnee to SL- let's be friends!

    Hi, I have recenly returned to SL, been a resident since good 'ol 2009,ahve gone on and off SL couple of times just because I can't seem to fit in or find my place. I have family (mom and her extended family) in SL, but don't really have any friends left on my 'friend list' with whom I could hang out and explore SL. Just like my tags say I like playing games on my PC, watch TV series and movies, style looks and blog, and I know some funny cheese puns, which I find funny myself I also host at the club, but since my RAM died yesterday I wont be on for atleast a week til I get it fixed. So if you are interested in hanging out feel free to message me here or drop a note card in SL, you can try sending IM, but they get capped every time I log in hope to meet you soon if you are interested.
  13. Hey Everyone, Here's me, the friendly, polite, maybe somewhat geeky person. I'm looking for friends as I barely don't have any friends since my return to Second Life. All my interests are listed on the tags and if you're into any of those then cool! I'm sure we can get along as well.We can always get to know more through IM's. Some information about me: Gender: Female Age: 25 (turning 26 in a few days) Location: Southeast Asia Just send me an IM or message me here to add you or whatsoever. Thanks for reading ♥
  14. Hello everyone! So I have been tinkering in-world and searching quite a bit on the internet and cannot really find answers I am looking for. I was wondering if anyone could help me with my issue. BORING BACKSTORY: I am trying to do something different after 9+ years, many of them living my life with over saturated lighting to make my avatar look good on my monitor. I want to switch my environment in my home to something with more "mood" to it, if that makes sense. I purchased red lighting for the bedroom (which are the only pure lights I have right now, anything else lit is by furnishing design like the TV screen or lights within a game) and am looking for an environment that preserves that light, within that space, but also makes other colors and edges "POP" for the naked eye, and does not make things too dull or "foggy". My ultimate goal would be for my avatar to also benefit from this environment where my clothing or accessories "shine" or catch someone's eye. There are also adult related things I would like to benefit from this environment, but I will privately test that I guess instead of publicly post here *laughs* So anything that would keep my red lights red, simulate a "black-light" effect, and preserve my avatars look would be a welcomed suggestion. Or if anyone knows of a tutorial or better way to achieve lighting effects than red light + environment, I am open to suggestions for that too. Thank you for your time, and you may contact me in world too! Tianna Burnstein
  15. HUDs for hair?

    As somebody who wishes to get into creating multi-textured anything.. I am still primitive in the fact that I do not know where to look for a HUD to customize (I guess?) into becoming a HUD for selecting hair textures out of multiple textures to apply to a mesh hair.. or any object I wish to have multiple colors of something for. Where does one go about finding a color changing HUD? I mean.. I make my own textures for stuff.. so I do not need something pre-loaded at all if I do not have to have one.. but where does one start? or... How does one start making one? Any learning curves I have to look into?

  20. 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)
  21. In second life forums, it is stated that you can build a purchased house on your own land. So you have to buy a land for this. But, I want to know that can I build a purchased house on a sandbox which allowed to the building and scripting? Is there anyone doing such a thing before?
  22. I am looking for a person that is experienced in building mesh venues. Attention to detail and textures is a must. The ability to show previous builds will be requested. Please IM or drop a NC to Al Brunsen
  23. Excalibur Rentals has done it again! We have a gorgeous full Adult sim for your rental pleasure!

This is 22500 prims for *only* L$15750 http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Lazonby%20Pass/128/128/36 If this is your spot to call home, or start your RP, please contact one of our Agents Today, because all lands are *First come, First Served!*
  24. Who created this building? I want it.

    I was on Flickr and came across this photo. I have written to the one to took the photo a long time ago but no replies... It was supposedly found somewhere in April 2017 at the Sci-fi Convention at the Relay For Life event or so.... I had gone to the place and asked for help and I guess the place had changed... I want this building soooo bad! So please if anyone knows, let me know! T___T Thanks so much in advance!
  25. I've recently learned skills to texture and create graphics and designs for rp sims. I am looking for advice and for ideas for getting the word out there as well as pricing tips. I was very fortunate to win the best chief car at the most recent vehicle car show but I want to branch out and advertise more. Below are some examples of work ive done and I would like to know where the best demand is or what people look for. Do you see more US vehicles than European vehicles? I want to do this cheapest for my customers but still be able to cover my expenses.
