>caylum turned into a girly haired, blonde, neon shark
WOW TWENTY-FOUR WHOLE HOURS.
I haven't seen Kiyayne act up in chat since, if you're trying to shitpost you should really step it up, like pick at the fact that it was a weak response or something, not drool on the keyboard with your finger in your ass pecking out the funny words for the funny post.
Alright guys, stop shitposting it's time for the
LIST OF NICE THINGS ABOUT SOME PEOPLE IN /SLG/ 1.0

"just draw your avatar in something festive/wintery/holidayish." I know its like scratchy and shit but I can't help it
I have an eye problem that's still healing
I forgot to link to the group in the new thread.
come draw with us, we're being festive.
The weird opposite color snowfall night is so romantic, tonight.
The more I learn about SL's lighting engine, the less I like it. The only way to make normal/specular maps look right is to turn on screen-space reflections, but that makes everything look horribly washed-out on certain WL settings.
A lot of things in SL would be so much easier and more functional if there were universal standards. On the plus side, I'm pretty happy with the end result this time.
It sounds cliche at this point, but it's really true that everything about SL is just retarded. Anyone that works with SL learns it right away, through scripting, textures, modeling, lighting, and even just casual play. Nothing is as user friendly or functional as it should be.
>uploaded the screenshot that doesn't even demonstrate the maps on the coat which was the entire goddamn point of the image
So very pro.
No, it's a post-apocalyptic wasteland of despair and broken dreams.
>Worst thing someone can say about me on the shit list is I'm boring.
>Too boring to make the nice list.
Well, certainly there is fun to be had in it. But, unlike actual games that are usually designed to feed said fun straight into your mouth, in SL you have to earn it, creatively swaying in between rules, shove your hands deep into its guts and yank the pulsating, dripping raw fun that was trying so hard to hide from you.
>i wonder if that new head would make a good mature female animu
oh my. I'm honestly tempted to lose my m3

They are not allowed because of the drama that always pops up when ponies come into play.
The extreme fans bother everyone, the extreme haters lash out as hard as possible endlessly.
Rather than have it constantly be brought up and argued over, it is simply easier to just straight up ban it.
What is so hard to understand about this?
It's not a matter of pointing fingers, it's about cutting out useless unnecessary drama.
And the presence of one side will always bring out the other.
Hell it does that on /slg/ often and /vg/ has a no ponies rule going on.
if you have a problem tell an admin/mod, though at this point I'm 99% sure you're just shit-posters without the gall to actually do anything about it.
IF they have a vendetta, who fucking cares. deal with it, why do you want to be around people who don't like you?
Why are you so mad at Rahfnek, he doesn't want gross ponies in the group, neither do any of the other mods so what?
It's fun go hang out with these folks I'm not going to get mad at them because they're deciding to govern their group.
Doesn't incite nearly as much of a violent reaction as MLP does.
>What fucking drama have pony faggots introduced to the group that significantly overshadows the drama that any other demographic brings with it?
Just by not being allowed in the group has spawned several 500+ post /slg/ threads in the span of a half hour.
This is when MLP is not allowed.
>What fucking drama have pony faggots introduced to the group
No one but ponies like ponies. Literally everyone else hates them.
Furries are tolerable because they're not. fucking. ponies.
>people reacted poorly to a mishandled and dumb rule, clearly this means they cause drama!
Try outlawing furries, or animes, or literally any broad single thing. I can guarantee you it will generate just as many posts simply by virtue of people thinking it's ridiculous.
Furries used to be outlawed entirely.
Hardly any reaction
Also this isn't even a debate, you are told why ponies are not allowed and that's the rule.
You aren't going to convince anyone to change this rule because of reasons already posted.
It doesn't matter if the backlash would be big if some other group was banned, because those groups don't stir up shit like how MLP does for being allowed.
you call me a dimwit but you obviously don't know what a fucking rule is, the tier funding comes out of rahfnek's pockets from what i understand. Got a problem? fund your own sim you retard.
>because those groups don't stir up shit like how MLP does for being allowed
Except they did and that's why furries are allowed now. They all threw fits, snuck in, and now furries are okay.
They were allowed because the group was dying and people stopped giving a shit about furries.
If you want MLP in the group then you're going to have to wait until people stop being so venomous towards it whenever they see it.
This won't happen any time soon.
It's a rule because it's a rule and it's going to stay a rule because it's a rule, and they generate drama because Rahf says so? That's the administrative equivalent of plugging your ears and screaming "la la la".
yes, but it refers to cartoon ponies you shitbird
maybe if you actually paid attention to shit you'd know that the term horse being used was a joke to refer to ponies
if there were no "horses" allowed then jason would've been kicked out long ago
The rule is in place because the moderators running the group don't want ponies in it, how hard is that to understand?
If you really want to fix the problem go make a /vg/ group with the assmad dude here
that accepts ponies
>An admin wanting this rule in place is not a legitimate reason
>Wanting less drama is not a legitimate reason
>"I'm going to stir up drama to show that I'm the one in the right and I'm going to be a cunt about it too"
Nice arguments anon.
It's self proven how harmful bronism is to communities, if you were a part of any online communities you might have learned that the hard way. Ponies are banned because the great majority of people detest them or just plainly feel uncomfortable, and you can't blame them because they're people who masturbate over a children's show.
>>"I'm going to stir up drama to show that I'm the one in the right and I'm going to be a cunt about it too"
That is pretty much exactly what the rule does. "I'm going to prove ponies cause drama by making a rule that will make the ponies cause drama, which justifies the rule."
The mods don't want ponies, a large chunk of the group doesn't want ponies, one of the owners is paying for a place for all of you to hang out and doesn't want ponies there, my god how selfish
>ponies are banned for causing shit in the past, orbiting and crashing previous parcels
>move parcels twice
>horses were retarded and fucked everything up for themselves
>IT'S JUST NOT FAIR!!!!
And if ponies are allowed the backlash against it will be much greater than what you're doing right now anon.
You're pretty much in the minority because MLP fans who like SL are in their own groups because they accepted that they aren't allowed in /vg/ by now.
And you aren't going to change the rules here.
>ponies are banned because they're shitty and no one likes them
Getting slurpees in this weather wasn't a good idea, chain.
neither of those have the innate ability to turn things to shit wherever they go. griefers are sure as the sunrise and furries have always been a large sub culture of the internet let alone SL. You'll find people who actively hate furries in the minority most places in real life, can you say the same for bronies and cartoon horses?
I joined during the end of the office building; Bacon left the group on his own and it was Rahf that readmitted him, Maz was banned for drawing porn of two mods and being creepy in general (teleporting around sonic sims asking for sex, etc.), Sidorovich wasn't even admitted, Daring wasn't admitted, Sloppy wasn't even admitted because of his autism (ask Chain or Sovot for the logs of him sperging out, plus the bronies in the group currently don't even like him besides Blueshift, they shit talk him whenever he is brought up) as for Blueshift, I don't recall him being banned
Sovot said Sid is into really creepy shit and didn't want to admit him into *HIS* group. Daring was initially turned down and then freaked out in thread about an apparent hit list of ponies that was proven to not even exist, that seems pretty autistic.
Sovot, Chainsword, Rahfnek and Genki do not want ponies in the group. People getting assblasted in the thread are only going to give them something to laugh about later when they run around smashing people through the floor doing their retard voices.
Who else was told recently that was denied admission into /vg/? They're always quick to gloat when they turn down someone from /mlp/ so it shouldn't be hard for you to come up with a response.
>Sovot, Chainsword, Rahfnek and Genki do not want animes in the group. People getting assblasted in the thread are only going to give them something to laugh about later when they run around smashing people through the floor doing their retard voices.
This is going to continue until you comprehend this very simple point.
Yeah. It's a pretty neat build, just the same. But I'm a sucker for dense urban builds like that.
Yeah, but pretty much anything that looks like an actual video game is neat for SL.
Without internet I have grown steadily more insane, speaking little, eating little and experiencing ever more intense delusional dreams. My practiced control of lucid dreaming has entirely disintigrated.
I've staved off total insanity with vigorous exercise and the entire collection of Star Trek TNG
The end to my torment is promised tomorrow. I will return, but changed.
Copy "Zoe" out of the Library avatars. It fits surprisingly well, without even the need for any funny custom alpha trickery. You'll probably want different shoes though, I'm pretty sure the Zoe shoes are open-toed and so they only work with the Zoe body.
Thanks for advice, this suit really works pretty good, a little issue with wrists tho, but not major one.
Increase the Torso Muscles slider to 50. The suit is fitted mesh, so it responds to a lot more sliders than regular mesh.
50 on that particular slider gets you the "default shape" of the object as far as Torso Muscles are concerned, and will also solve the wrist issue. Unfortunately it's not 50 on all sliders to get the default shape of a piece of fitted mesh; the values are all over the place.
Thanks. Here is another one with tea cup.
Never heard of cuckolding before SL
Do a small search, run into this

Drawings are like martial arts - you may be talented in it, but you become really good only if you practice a lot and work hard.
There are a lot of guides around 4chan for newbies, and people willing to assist you or guide in right direction the only thing you need - to start.
Hell, even talentless fuck like me, who never drew a damn for entire life already able to perform something semi-decent just in 3 months. You are worse than me? I don't think so.
Currently I draw only on pape, since I dont own tablet, and as I said it's just "semi-decent" - not good enough to show on public yet.
But nobody argued about something like this.
Well, buy a sketchbook, some pencilcs - 2-3 hard pencils and same amount of smooth ones, or just mechanical pencil, I prefer it more, eraser, it's good to have kneaded eraser among regular ones, basically it's everything you need to start, also pick some kind of guide for newbies, I personally started my way from Loomis, and many suggest it, but I think it's not very good, since it lacks of detailed explanation of vital things and I had to learn them from somewhere else but just in case, here it is:
Good luck anon.
went from optus to telstra
They took 7 days to fucking change the service over and it costs just as much as the previous plan with speeds half the old speed and a 500gb cap down from totally unlimited
I ms'painted Twavis, Marvin and their government aide going on a walk
Slab found out he got a raise
Then he found out the money was because he had to move in with Twavis and Mawvin
its called HUNTER ELF FULLMESH AVATAR
its really shit
no clothing or support for it whatsoever beyond what the creator makes, the mesh is all one piece and the sculpt of certain parts of it, like the hands and neck are all funky
And its rigged not fitted
i'm so sorry
i didn't even try to keep it from being lewd
Art really is one of those things were practice and hard work will pay off. You may need to throw in more time and effort if you're starting super low but anyone can get to a decent level if they grind enough. So you can do it!
I want to make things for Second Life. What's the best 3D modelling software for beginners? I'm thinking between Blender, 3DS Max, and Cinema 4D. Whatever's the easiest to get used to and will work best for Second Life is what I'm interested in.
Ageplay is pedophilia, which means prepubescent children having sex(12-13 and under) with someone who is not a child. The age of consent is a few years after sexual maturity in most countries.
You'll find that most SL-related tutorials and assets are made for Blender, but its user interface feels like pic related. It's only popular because it's free.
3DS Max and Maya are pretty similar, with Max having better modeling tools and Maya having more of a focus on animation. They're what I would suggest, and they have a ton of tutorials that aren't specifically SL-related.
I have no experience with Cinema 4D, but it looks like it's mostly for stuff like 3D text and motion graphics.
I'm not looking to do animation, more modelling than anything. As far as the tutorial thing, does it matter that the tutorials available aren't very SL specific? In the future, I'd like to maybe do this as an occupation, so it'd probably be best to learn an Autodesk program anyways...
How do you guys actually get into this game?
I kinda like it, but nothing made me want to stay.
I fucked around with my friend, was blown away by all the adult content, because I had no idea SL was like that, and spent some pennies making an interesting avatar.
What keeps you playing? What is there to do?
Is "pedo" and "underage" the new "MLP" meme?
Like, the thread seems to really require an object for hate, and the MLP meme isn't working since most people have moved on and accept reality by this point.
Yeah, but people are throwing around the pedo label like crazy. It's a weird meme to glob onto just because we have one underage guy in the conversation.
Also, fuck, if he's proven to be underage why is he here?
>heh it's only a meme, not directly because of a creeper who has a bad habit of petplay and has argued both in the thread and in-group "w...well he's legal in my state, so i'm not doing anything wrong!"
What kind of idiot claims to be 16 in 18+ only things? I started browsing porn sites and ERP long before I was an adult but I always lied about my age simply to protect your partner and yourself from bullshit.
Anon you responded to, and yeah, 3DS Max is what I use. If you're only modelling, you won't need anything SL-specific beyond the process for exporting the model to .DAE format (and maybe setting the units at the start).
If you're making rigged mesh, it's a little more complicated, but that's outside the strict purview of 3D modelling itself.
This seems like a good time to advocate for an 18+ only rule for the group again.
Easiest thing to get into is just retexturing shit other people make.
Like, I don't know if you're more into Brazilians or furries, but try getting a mesh avatar or some mesh thing and make it look new and unique. You can actually sell that texture as a mod kit for others to use and then turn those profits into future endeavors.
When I first started, I just made shitty t-shirt textures and sold them for dirt cheap, but that snowballed as I practiced and it is what it is.
SL is what you make of it. As long as you're having fun, keep doing it. If it feels like work, you'll get burned out eventually and wonder why you started.
Alright, a little conflicting advice here from two different anons. Can we discuss this, then?
My two concerns with Blender are the interface (I've heard it's very unintuitive) and the tutorials, which become outdated because of how quickly Blender changes.
>Sex is a bonus but it's better in WoW
Really? I've always found MMO ERP to be bottom of the barrel. Not that SL is too terribly far removed from "MMO", in a way. But somehow I've often found the good ones, or, failing that, at least the decent ones.
Max and Maya are what I learned in school, so I may be a little biased. But honestly, any professional software like that will be daunting at first.
The thing with Blender is that it depends on keyboard shortcuts for most things, so there's a lot of stuff to memorize.
"so I'll leave an explanation here for the joke since it was REALLY bad, basically I set it up by clicking at random or I noticed something funny, then just put the link somewhere it would've been noticed. I didn't think about how it would impact the group itself when I made it and a 24 hour ban is WELL deserved, I have no complaints. Again; tasteless joke."
Caylum was banned for having an F-List?

Then he shouldn't be on 4chan or in the group.
Doxxing already? He's not even done anything other than be some ignorant kid on the internet.
I do hope he sees this though. You should never mix your RL information with an online persona and if you do, do it only with people you REALLY trust. I was a dumb kid online once and did this too. Thankfully I don't think most of the people in the group hate him enough to do anything with his information. But Caylum, if you're reading this, please see this as a lesson to divide RL and online.
Nope, shitpost or serious post, it's not right to publish this kind of shit on here; I don't think anyone wants to know who the sickly looking balding 38 year old man behind the multi-penised centaurherm robot is.
Here's a reference for how many of those posts were me
I'm just going through my holiday favorites and drawing shit.
Am I doing it right?
I've tried to make a ghost using transparent Avatar 2.0 and M3 before but it didn't work well with the M3 head. I didn't think of making only parts transparent.
Yep, that was my issue, although i could probably get the m3 to be semi-trans as well with time and effort, i thought it looked better (and far, far easier) to have the top body start opaque and have it go transparent as it hit extremities
i took it a bit further since the gradient isn't smooth if you just set each face to an escalating alpha (as shown in pic to the left), so i just ripped a texture and applied the gradient myself so it flowed better.
I can send the texture if you'd like, though i'm not sure if it'll go well with the vampire face skin (i ended up just desaturating my own m3 skin to make it match)
bavey1.rikichi if you'd like the texture; will be heading to bed soon though
it isn't bothering me too much, although this ordeal has made me realize I shouldn't use caylum with everything
