I've come back to SL after having left before mesh was a thing, and I'm a little at sea. My current avatar face is kind of what I want, but none of it is mesh. Is it possible to get a mesh head and skin etc that looks old? Any recommendations?
Hello, all! After a long hiatus, I've returned to SL over this past week. I have started to embrace the mesh avi lifestyle, and decided to have some fun checking out my old prim clothing, to see what might still be wearable. I was quite started to find that many (I'm guessing over 50%) of my once susbtantial inventory is now comprised of empty folders. I started SL a bit over 12 years ago, and one of my favorite hobbies was shopping. I enjoyed a lot of stores that are now gone, such as Ivalde, Blaze, The Black Canary, and Evie's Closet. Those were some of the first folders I looked in when I returned, and they are almost all empty. (I did find a few outfits from TBC, but many are gone.) Shoes are gone, hats are gone, old RP outfits... it's really quite startling. I'm currently using a Phoenix viewer, although I use the standard SL viewer when my old computer will tolerate it. I've relogged many times, but to no avail. I forget if there is a way to force inventory to repopulate, or something similar? I also recall that I was once able to get permission from a Linden to use the test grid, in order to try and find some items I lost when my system crashed, and again due to a problem with a sim where I was suddenly no longer a renter. (A very long story, but all my stuff was supposedly returned, and some of it didn't make it, so I was able to go back and try to look for old copies.) I don't know if that is even possible anymore, but if so, I'd love to hear how to request it. Any other tips or tricks that you have to offer would be very welcome. It's sad to want to wear my favorite clothes and just stare at an empty closet. I'm almost afraid to look for old momentos, in case they are missing, too. Thanks in advance, IndiaRose ETA: I am using a Firestorm viewer, not a Phoenix. Don't know why I typed that, I remember that whole bru-ha-ha!
I abandoned my SL account before mesh was a thing that was in full swing, I came back due to an RL friend wanting someone to run her group and boredom. What are the reccomended bodies and heads that are on the market today? I've got a decent line of reccs on hair and skin, I'm learning about BoM now as it seems to be more of what I'm use to in a way, back when early mesh clothing and hair clipped through your avatar and required full use of alphas. I'm a girl, btw. Forgot to mention that. I plan to dive back into the adult communities I was apart of and I know a lot of people are really shallow on looks, so I want to try looking my best
