  1. Hello. I'm rather new to secondlife and looking to create clothes. I'd like to someday get a devkit, but I know I have a lot of work set out ahead of me before I can do that. I have a lot of experience as an artist in general (in the past I've made a full-time living off 2D art and painting), and a handful of knowledge about 3D modeling - though nowhere near as vast. But I do very much know my way around blender, and I'm excited to learn the bits about modeling itself that I don't know yet. For the most part I am right now making furniture and accessories (though I haven't released anything on the market yet), but in between I'd like to just do some experimental things with clothes, at least for myself, for now. The block in the road here is that all resources have pointed me to the Standard Sizes found in the marketplace, but the dropbox link doesn't work anymore, and doesn't seem to have since sometime last year. Is there anywhere else I can find these? I've seen a few discussions where people have brought up fitmesh, but I'm a bit confused on that also. I wear the Maitreya body, and for the most part things that are labelled XS will fit me. I wouldn't be able to dream of getting the maitreya devkit right now (if ever? from some of the comments I've seen...), but I don't quite understand if the fitmesh will fit me (and I guess, someday, others) if I were to create on it, or if I would also still need the standard sizing avastar models as well. Thanks!

    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.

    Completely New and Have Some Questions

    Hi, I am new to Second Life. I have a few questions or issues that I seem to be experiencing. In the tutorial, at the shopping part of the tutorial I keep getting an error that says Equipment Malfunction Please Try Again Later. I signed up for Premium, and I thought I read that I'd be given $1,000 LS for joining but my LS balance is 0. I built a house as part of the Premium membership - Is there a quicker way to travel to my house in the viewer program? Right now I get there by clicking the link from the website, haven't figured out how to travel there in the viewer yet. Also how do houses work in Second Life? - In IMVU "houses" were like private chat rooms that every user had. In Second Life I see I can open the door and walk outside, and I see I have neighbors and I can look in their windows and see their furniture and pets, and I assume I could walk in their house too although I did not try that. Could people also just walk into my house? And is it like the public chat areas where if you are nearby outside the house you can chat with and hear other chats going on around you from within the houses? I see some places have groups - how do I create my own group? How do the breedable pets and gachas work? I'm most excited about this feature I think. Also it seems that we can resell items we no longer want or need - therefore could we sell our pets' offspring? What are the best freeware tools for creating meshes or textures for Second Life? I think that covers my questions for now. Thanks in advance for any help!

    What's Your Story?

    Hello everybody, I am new to this game and haven't had much experience in meeting other people. I was just curious as to whether people actually create meaningful relationships with other residents. I was hoping some of you could share your stories of some of the most memorable moments you've experienced in Second Life. What is you're favorite aspect of Second Life and why do you continue to play it? What kind of impact has Second Life had in your real life? As you guys can probably tell, I'm a college student and I am writing a research paper on this virtual community. I would love to make friends and would appreciate it if someone would show me the ropes. So far, my experience in Second Life has been pretty positive but I know there's a lot more to see. Please share your stories with me.
  7. Hello! I´m searching for a job in SL. I´m totally new here, so my acc is very young, but I always try my best at work. I speak german and english. I don´t have cam or text and I will not buy equipment to do this here. I can´t work on weekends. If you want to see a photo check out my profile. Hope to hear from you soon! -ILGames

    New mommy

    hello I am Dezire! New to SL and I have come to enjoy it since I have been here. I share a home here with my husband who is also my husband in RL. We are expecting two beautiful children in less than a week.☺️ I am excited, I am just looking for mommy friends who can help me. Some SL vets would be greatly appreciated, preferably women who have been here for years but newbies who just want friends are more than welcome!. I would love to get acquainted with maybe even a few woman to hang out with and have fun with or without our children! I do not want to be here in SL with friends!? I am welcoming of all shapes, sizes, and colors of women! I have uploaded a picture of myself for everyone to see. Let me tell you more about me so that you won't think I am a weirdo! You can call me Dezire, I am 20, since I have been here on SL I have explored ALOT! I am open to new adventures, I don't mind going out for coffee or a movie but I also don't mind going to a strip club or adult clubs. I just am looking for mature women with children who are looking for friendship and having fun!
  9. Like I say on the tin, I'm running scripts on my avatar, but I'm durned if I know how. I'm also a SL-newbie and something of a moron when it comes to technology. But I do understand that the more my avatar wears, the harder it becomes for others to see her properly. (The Free Dove area has "scales" to measure an av's "weight." I've been making liberal use of them.) - Aside from that, I got nothin'. I'd appreciate any help. I have questions: WHAT could these mysterious scripts be? WHERE can I find them? HOW can I turn them off? SHOULD I turn them off? (Do they stay turned off forever?) Thank you very much. - Violet

    MESH?

    Most all noobs (prefers "New Residents") start off with a system classic av. It was a month or so till I sprang for a Sig-Gianni / Catwa. To this day all I know about it is that I paid more for higher detail and a more realistic look, and with a decent human body-language animation-override (Oracul is my choice), you may have somethin. Would anyone want to explain for me in detail what the heck "MESH" really is and how it's made? Yes, I like particulars, especially how it's made. Did you ever watch HOW IT'S MADE on TV? I always loved that show. https://www.sciencechannel.com/tv-shows/how-its-made/
  11. Are there any, maybe? I mean I'm not trying to be all cheap here. I just don't have any more money right now and have to wait until next month until I'm able to get any.

    Skin/mesh questions

    So I got the kemono avatar, and I am making a skin. BUT, it's a bunny, and I don't know what to do for the tail and ears. I have NO skill whatsoever with 3D modeling. Do I need to find a fitting tail and ear mesh off the shop? Do I need to make my own? I don't know what to do ack
  14. Why are you even here ? Post your newbie story. I have two. I signed up, spent far too long picking an account name. Jumped though the welcome island hoops, somehow ended up on mainland wandering about. I vaguely remember being underwater. I was alone, it was boring and it looked like crap. I was expecting there to be other people or something and ... I logged off. Total session time maybe .. 20 minutes. I don't even remember the name of my account. I was running Linux as my main desktop OS working from home, I read that a Linux client had been released and due to the complete lack of entertaining things to do on Linux at the time, downloaded the release and logged in. I was immediately teleported by my then RL partner to a small gaming social place she hung out with friends. I fiddled with my avatar, somehow ending up with a blue ground texture as my skin. Other people arrived, I was given some L$ and we all played a winner takes the pot version of Yahtzee while listening to the parcel stream and chatting. It was fun. I logged in the next day, fixed my avatar a bit, discovered I needed something called a skin, explored .. and I've been here almost every day since.

    Making custom skins?

    So, I want to earn some L$. I have a pretty good knowledge of art and 2d programs, and have made skins for other things. And I know lots of people want custom furry skins, but I have no idea how to make them. So my questions are as follows: Am I allowed to make custom skins in exchange for L$? Do I need a shop for this? How much does a shop cost? If someone wants a skin for a certain avatar, do I have to buy it, or can they provide me the skin file to edit? And lastly, how do I make skins? Sorry for all the stupid newbie questions.
  16. I actually joined this game like six years ago, but couldn't figure anything out, puttered around for like two days, and quit. A friend of mine suggested trying it again, so I went in and figured out my login, and arrived looking like this: So that was terrible. The hair, body shape, and skin are supposed to look like me. I forget where I got the outfit, but everything was free. In fact, everything I own now was also free. I haven't spent money on SL yet. Anyways, I logged in, was surprised to see how awkward I looked, and set out to find new clothes. I loaded up on free stuff and tossed some together into an outfit that was bad on purpose: Same skin and body, everything else is new. I kind of love her. Eventually I found clothes I liked and settled on this: I actually called this outfit 'me irl' even though it looks nothing like me (except the body shape, still the same). I think everything I'm wearing in that one is free stuff from Curious Kitties. If I ever actually spend some real money to get Lindens, it'll be for Curious Kitties stuff. All my avatars so far were short fat ladies, so I figured I should make an 'attractive' avatar and this happened: Honestly I think she's kinda ugly but I saved her because she's funny. I also found a box fulla free fursuits. A little bit after finding that I figured out that I could take parts of it off and put normal clothes over it, and this amazing mess happened: Right now I'm calling her Sexytron. Her tiny hands are a feature, not a bug. I settled on this for a simple, casual furry outfit for when I think it's necessary to be a furry. I have a second outfit of her dressed as a weird stripper but I didn't feel like drawing her twice. And finally, last night I figured I should have a fat character, a vampire character, and should utilize my box of fursuits more. So this happened: I actually took a human-sized wig and spent about an hour rearranging its individual hair chunks to sort of (sort of!) fit on the wolf head. So that's where my journey is now. I have a bunch of free junk I haven't even looked at or opened yet, so I think I'm gonna have fun making more ugly weird girls. Oh, and all these drawings were pretty quick doodles...I promise I can draw good when I wanna.

    Where to begin?

    Hello everyone, I'm just wondering what your top tips and suggestions are for newbies that have never done any role-play, but would like to try it out? I for one, have never tried it, but it sounds interesting. I'm sure there must be other newbies who would like to know what's involved.

    New player looking for friends/guidance

    Well I'm new to Second Life and I've been pretty much stuck wondering "what can I do?"
  19. Hello to whoever's reading this, lmao I'm redsnakes on SL and I recently joined because....***** looked fun I think that for me, this game would be more fun if I had friends with similar interests as me- music, mostly hip hop and r&b, fashion, mostly streetwear and high-end brands, and partying (duh). I'm a little young but that doesn't mean I can't behave maturely, in RL I have friends ten years older than me; your age doesn't matter its about connecting with somebody. In other news, I wouldn't mind a booty call either, preferably male, skinny or muscular, and black.

    Need some advice/recommendations

    So I just joined SecondLife a couple days ago, and the first thing I did was try to fiddle around with the avatar. I found out very quickly about the lack of items I had in my inventory. I consider myself a member of the furry community, so if possible I’d love to be able to change my character to look like one. I looked around in the marketplace and found a lot of looks that I enjoyed, but I’m mostly confused on what exactly it is I need to do. Apprently I need to buy the... mesh(?) for the body, then a texture to go put on top of it, I think. I wanted to make a feline avatar. It’d be awesome to texture it myself (if that’s an option at all). I’m really just seeking some pointers in the right direction. What exactly am I looking for? Is there a simpler way to find it? I browsed a little bit, and I’ve found that I liked the combination of the... I think it’s the “Kemono body” and the “paws feline head” which I don’t think comes with the ears. I looked by typing those things in, and I found the feline head but I’m lost still on the kemono body... or even if I need to by a tail/pair of ears. Any tips are greatly appreciated ^^
  21. Hello! As the title says, I'm transitioning from IMVU here to SL. So far, (two days in lol) I'm really enjoying the freedom of SL but I'm having a somewhat difficult time recreating my imvu avatar. I love the way she looks and if I can, I'd like my SL avatar to look similar! I've noticed SL does almost nothing in terms of getting you started towards individualizing your avatar... IMVU gives you a thousand or two "credits" free to go ahead and buy a cute outfit, hairstyle and/or even new skintone without leaving you looking like a noob. I've not had much luck with freebies here, most of them look atrocious in my opinion. Now that's okay, I'm fine with spending money on my avatar, but I'm not 100% sure of where I should start. Shopping on IMVU feels a lot more streamlined than here on SL. I've tried searching on the marketplace and in SL using keywords but I seem to get really outdated/ low quality results when I do that? D: Anyway I'm wondering if anyone here would be able to help me.. What I'd like to know : We have mesh heads on IMVU (I'm using one in the photos) but we don't have mesh bodies. Do you think mesh heads and/or bodies are something I should invest in to achieve my goal? If yes, should I focus first on the body/head; the "base" of the avatar, or should I go for the clothing first? Does it not matter? Honestly, any suggestions on hair creators that have nice curly hair would be amazing!! I'm having a really hard time finding them. Bonus points if you could point me in the direction of clothing creators you think might suit my style. For the record I've looked up several videos of how to apply items and clothing on SL and I think I have a pretty good understanding of that. Also price isn't really a factor so feel free to suggest anything! This is what my IMVU avatar looks like: Style 1 2 3 Body type hair goals Face details Gosh, I feel like I'm asking a lot guys sorry! Any advice you can offer would be very much appreciated!

    Putting new mesh on

    Hello, I started playing Second Life two days ago and today I decided to get some stuff from Market Palce, unfortunately every time I put something on there's a square of preview pictures of this item. What should I do not to make it happen?

    Eye Issues

    Newbie here with a quick question: I started off as a default vampire avatar called "Elleria." I now have a Maitreya mesh body (Lara) and a Catwa head (Cami), and I also purchased mesh eyes (simply titled "customeyes"). I want the shape of my character's eyes to be large and round (Google search Billie Lourd for an example), NOT slim (like Taylor Swift's eyes). The Cami head has slim eyes and is not Bento, which apparently means that I am unable to make the shape of her eyes rounder. Someone suggested that switching to a Bento head would solve the issue; however, regardless of the head I demo, I am unable to detach the original "Elleria eyes." Is there a way to do so? Am I missing something completely?!
