Re: Uploading from SketchUp

Are these SketchUp models you made or from the freeby site? If the latter, then they're probably a mess, causing all kinds of errors. What Zed said about building with simple mesh cubes and planes is better. If you can use the same 8 vert cube, 3 vert and 4 vert planes, for any of the build that nee...

Making good topology

I just found this tutorial and wish I had had it years ago. Especially for rigged mesh avatars and clothing, where a bad loop can mess you up for days.

Re: New decade ... new Idea ?

Personally, I think it's not a great idea for three reasons (at least). I have loved events that move from venue to venue - there was a poetry writing group in Second Life c.2006-2007, before Talk, that had a different location each month, and it was fun and creative. So I like the idea in general....

Re: Roarin' Twenties Wearables Needed!

I thought I'd be done with Roth RC#2 and on to 20's costumes by now, but nooooo. More power outages scheduled for tomorrow. I'll stop making even suggestions of promises :cry:

Re: New Years' Eve? Roaring 20s?

I've been collecting fashion images from the 20's for some time, and, if it rains here, the fires are out and power outages no longer threatened, I might even get to it. Great idea!

Re: Saphira dev files.

I forgot to include the location of the "official" inworld distribution site for the most recent Ruth and Roth versions, running on Ai Austin's server. It's at: hop://login.osgrid.org/RuthAndRoth/128/128/26. If that changes, the GitHub page will have the most recent information. There is also a grou...

Re: Saphira dev files.

That's what I was trying to tell you - there is no Kitely version of Ruth and Roth mesh bodies. And won't be, because of licensing issues. Ruth and Roth is a teaching project, originally modeled by Shin Ingen, and has licensing not compatible with most for-profit enterprises. I see that you've found...

Re: Saphira dev files.

AFAIK Ruth and Roth are the way to go for creating clothing for mesh bodies in OS. I'm not sure that any other original (not stolen) mesh bodies are licensed to use outside of SL. If any are, I'd sure be interested. There are issues with Ruth and Roth licensing in Kitely, though not in the noncommer...

Re: Question About Mesh Avatars

If licensing is OK for importing to an OS grid (SL usually excluded, because of its TOS), the model has to be, usually, retopologized to make it suitable for skinning and vertex weighting. In English: remodeled so that it has evenly distributed vertices arranged in evenly spaced loops. Then it has t...

Re: Piano needed

Hi Elin,
There are a couple of free ones at the Arcadia-Aley Library - I 'think' they're in the warehouse with the Hobos and other Urban Blight builds. If you do an area search for piano they should turn up.
