Second Life Adult: Open Collar

PS: Taylor.p points out that 6.4 was released last May. 

Those playing with RLV will get notices that Open Collar has an update out, v6.4.0. Provided they have not turned off ‘notices’. The update is a bit different than other updates we deal with in Second Life™. The update will upgrade a range of RLV Relay attachments.

Oh, and it is free. There are more details on Open Collars “Update” page.  Continue reading

Peace Comes to Second Life… Really?!?

Well, for about a minute… when all the guns in Second Life broke… Now, there are work around steps and viewer fixes and… Whatever, you can again shoot those deserving of annihilation.

So, what happened? Why can’t I shoot that scumbag werewolf and save the hot mini-skirted damsel? Seems the Lindens fixed a problem in the process of building Horizons, that’s my thinking. As they expanded controls for use with Advanced Experience Tools (AET), Horizons is an advanced experience, the scripting functions needed a bit more control. So, as reported some time ago we got new SIT commands. See: Second Life News 2016 w45 and for more details Scripting.

I suspect somewhere in that process the Lindens noticed some REALLY OLD bugs, think beginning of SL time, which are now just oddities for most scripters and fixed them to make it easier (and likely make it more logically correct) to do Horizons. The result is all the weapons designed to deal with those bugs/oddities broke.

Second Life: Finding Virtual Sex

How does one find adult places in Second Life™? There are several blogs that write about places in Second Life. But, the places covered on the blogs are mostly found in the Second Life™ blog articles published by the Lindens titled: Highlights from the Second Life Destination Guide. They are interesting places. But, for those looking for something of a more adult flavor, none are likely to meet their desire.

[Hot List]

Hot List

The regions covered Linden Lab® are mostly PG rated regions. In the last article of September, the regions highlighted were rated; 3 General 17.5% (PG), 11 Mature 65% (R), and 3 Adult 17.5% (X?). Remember. Adult is not always a sex thing. Violence can push a region into an Adult rating. Since it is October and Halloween… 2 of the 3 Adult rated regions appear to have gotten their rating from violence, gore, or may be just being built on Adult rated land. The three regions are:  Continue reading

Second Life Tutorial: RLV, Mesh, and Folders – How it works, How to Use

What RLV is…

RLV = Restrained Love Viewer, formerly Restrained Life Viewer. But Linden Lab® thought that use of the word Life in the name infringed on or put at risk their Second Life™ trademark. So, they pushed on those developing RLV and it changed.

RLV in the Adult Hub

RLV training in the Adult Hub

What RLV is, is a set of tools built into a viewer that extends what we can do with Second Life™. The RLV capable viewers have a way for users to program/control each other’s viewers. Just as the Lab’s Advanced Experience Tools (AET) allow a programmer to; attach a HUD to your viewer, teleport your avatar, and do other things without the normal user interaction. So too, RLV allows a programmer to do similar things with your viewer and avatar. The difference between AET and RLV is in the flavor and amount of control the user gives  to a third party.  Continue reading

Second Life: Insilico Update – The LONG Story – Week 13

Danial Voyage has news from Insilico. Insilico sims have been granted a “new lease on life.” Digging around I find the story has been unfolding for several days. The best information I can find comes from some sites I trust and Skills her self.

From the Insilico blog:

Second Life Places: Virtual Decay

I’m not  into being a tour guide. Other blogs do it better. But, I saw Hamlet’s post pointing us to some of Loverdag’s interesting photography on Flickr. Hamlet included this image in his post. I’m impressed enough to also  include the image in mine and went looking for more information.

Virtual Decay

Virtual Decay

I see images on Flickr that are associated with Second Life avatars. But, I can’t always tell if all their images are from SL. Some SL peeps play in other worlds too. This set of images falls into that ‘unsure’ category. But, these are images from a place in Second Life™.  Continue reading

UnityCore RP/Combat Meter Coming to #SL

Those of us that play in the various role play and combat games within Second Life know about Combat/Role Play Meters. There are some popular ones like; Spellfire, GM, Warps, CCS, RCS, FRCS, and on and on. Some are free and some are purchased ranging from L$75 to several thousand. Now a new meter is coming out, UnityCore Engine. It looks like NoR will be changing over. From what I see it is only a matter of when.

UnityCore RP/Combat Meter for Second Life

NoR is a dark role play game in Second Life, Nation of Remembrance.

The UnityCore meter is in alpha testing now. You can try it out in NoR. They have the meter operational in two regions; Remembrance and Evil. While the test is in operation the role play is sort of suspended in those two regions, it’s not part of your IC RP story and the testing is considered OOC. That allows players to easily talk about the meter.
