Ruth and Beauty

Ok, people are idiots I just had a “i can’t use the new viewers my net isn’t fast enough conversation”. I don’t know how to deal with that. Who is putting out this v3 doesn’t work rumour? Honestly in 6 years in sl its giving me the best looking fastest experience I ever had. I’m told it’s no good for building. I build in it.
What I have noticed is it turns off features your pc isn’t fast enough to run. So there are an army of people installing 6 viewers sharing 1 cache logging into a viewer which disabled this restriction to play sl at 1 frame a second. Maybe v3 could use a photo render mode where it freezes a frame and renders the shit out of it to placate these people. I don’t need it I’m running a 3 year old pc on ultra all the time with everything turned on. I can only assume the people who struggle are on Windows 95 still cos these same people told them it’s cool and better somehow. Anyways back to the point mesh is live and I fuking love it, but you can’t see it. And u know what, i don’t care, you know best.

Been walking the earth the last few months.I just completed the mesh Questions.There fairly easy and i would assume apply to everything uploaded to sl.The thing is leaves most of sl in the hot steamy stuff.All the gesture shops are gonna be vulnerable cos if you haven't cleared the sample powww.Similar names Prda would be a no no lol logos and trademarks which I knew about but sl is knee deep in counterfeit gear.Its a smart move the up loader requiring proper payment details.Should keep them on their toes when they chose to upload with out the correct Licences.There looks like an incentive to shop makers of knock off gear to reduce the competition.And well fancy dress shops will become a rare sight as it now requires a licence to use a likeness, im sure it did before.Watch this space

The mesh quiz is in your web account under mesh uplaod status leemmie know what you think

U know that bit in Tron where he gets chopped up

Little bit quiet on the posts lately.

I been working on shoes yes still for the shoe fair .It’s not as straightforward as see shoe make shoe. I try to improve each element of what I make and to do this i have to keep learning new skills. It’s a messy process that takes me in unexpected directions. I spent an age trying to make a better bake. Baking is applying light and shadows etc to the plane texture. I had a look at both blender and 3ds max during this process and both kind of work differently to z-brush in that once set up they will back the light etc of from all angles all at the same time, which is kinda nice but I was at the i could spend the rest of my life learning these tools. this is me trying to explain how to use zb and max together to bake. Ill come back to it I’m sure.

The other week i got an xbox ikr but i was reading that the kinect cam has been made to work on a pc, and a lil Google later I find that now an up and running motion capture solution letting me create animations in seconds that I can use in Secondlife , its amazing fairly simple and if id spent thousands on a mocap solution id prob be dangling from a rope by now, it’s that good.

Todays discovery is the Brekel software will capture objects as 3d models see pik

Damn if we aint living in the future. All this stuff ill go into a little deeper and make some vids about. Speaking of vids I got to watch Siddean demonstrating her extreme sculpting prowess in ustream the master at work indeed. I learned a lot link here

We found out about you.

There’s a prog a device in sl u can buy lets u snoop at peoples ip address so u can hunt them down irl and make a suit from their skin.

That’s not true it takes at least 5 skins to make a suit. A good pair of boots however can use up to 7.

There is a device in second life that will allow people whose viewers are set to hear music like would be played in a sl club or who use the built in browser to store cookies. The ip address visible would take u as far as Manchester in my case. More or less its being used to flush out peoples alts under the guise of preventing copyboting. Either way I have thought about it and the vagueness of the ip address it can provide is subject to coincidence and likelihood to the amount that its utter crap in reality.

Why am I telling you this? Well I was passed a device that outs the sims using this device like its some huge wikileaks busting reveal. It won’t stop copybotters it won’t stop the endless paranoid ocean of internet sloshing about. The people with their online “who’s blocking me who’s on the map shit”. All you can do about that is get over it you can’t control the endless paranoia of other people.You can’t see what someone else is thinking.

Let it go Indiana

If you want to see what paranoia does for people go check out Sl Secrets on shopping cart disco. There all about me I’m fucking them all one by one and breaking there fragile little hearts.

On a lighter note we have$75 shoes in store by means of a Valentine’s Day treat I know im just a big softy

No raindrop believes its responsible for the flood

imma bit peed of, I just deleted 3 friends from the airport there handing out Armidi and lamb hair to noobs.
This stuff is full perm and not by the correct makers which makes it botted right i use to own most of the Armid hair.I tell the people their wearing nicked things that they should delete it.None of the makers i know are rich outta second life the best get by out of it.
So i call em on it and im a jerk, seems no ones hurt by botting no one looses any money from it and im just a dick for even saying anything.
Am i wrong to say anything. I work hard on what i make.Lamb and Armidi do 2 im sure.

i feel a bit sad deleting em i liked em.But id be angry and upset if it was done to me.But as sl is at the moment there's no come back, going after botters is like chasing ghosts in the machine.If u AR it it if your lucky will be purged front the servers.but its renamed and passed about.Makers cant afford to do anything legally so it happens and is tolerated.
And one by one designers become demotivated and leave.they cant pay the tier on their was fun and just about paid for itself.

I didn't know it was stolen? i told u and u don't care
no raindrop believes its responsible for the flood...

Lend me your Arches

Seems there's no copyright for fashion. There's trademark protection but nothing actually preventing me copying every good pair of shoes I see. Explains a lot about Secondlife shoes, really. What do you want? Should I make pairs or Doctor Martins boots Converse and Burberry or shall I continue doing my own thing. I don't really have any interest in producing a re-branded replica pair of shoes beyond the technical exercise. Music is copyright-ed up to the knackers to the extent that I feel it is litigiously cutting off its own creative fountain. Only the rich can afford to pay to use samples and god forbid u produce a tune that sounds the same as another u will be slapped in the pocket faster than u would believe. wasn't always like that la Bamba , twist and shout anybody. Two great songs with the same chords and still sounding unique. But cover versions? Opium for the masses, why trouble your audience by providing them with anything they would need to develop a taste for. Anything they don't already know. All of secondlife wear converse rip-offs, call them what u will. Does this bother me? well yes a little I don't really like my sl becoming to rl. Sl shoes offer more creative expression than rl shoes ever could. For one they don't need to be wearable. My best shoe designs would have even the most hardened supermodel confined to a wheelchair in a matter of hours. practical doesn't have to be a consideration in sl neither do toes, have u seen those hooves? I love those. Sl design should remain a test bed for fantasy not simply a mirror of rl trends. I want the flow to turn around and for our creations to find their way onto the rl street. If they can land a man on the moon they can stop the mega blisters. Besides we are designers we deal in perfection and beauty, not u chubby short arsed little bitches...
