Offlines to Email in Second Life

 

 

Baiastice & Video on Second Life Offlines to Email

Years ago, four in fact, I wanted to do a post discussing capping and the information on offlines to emails, and how nothing should actually be missing, if done correctly. There will be times when SL does something odd, or when you are logging in and someone IMs you and you may lag out or even crash and that would not be saved, but all in all my 13 years in Second Life, I have probably missed less than half a dozen things in all that time. Offlines to email are so much a part of my every day, I even check them when I am in world, because sometimes sim crossing glitches can cause an IM you are in to send part of it to email, weird but true.

I hope the video helps assure you of how SL does work with offlines and how you can be confident in knowing how or what is the best way to communicate with someone. Whether it be IM or notecard, the reality is, all get through it is just up to the receiver how they collect the information.

This tank dress with bra option and customisable sneakers are by Baiastice and at this round of c88 I love them so much, I even did a colour change part of the way through the post.

AlaskaMetro Bakes on Mesh and how to change layer order in Firestorm Appearance

I am still enjoying so much my foray into all things Bakes on Mesh, the other day Whimsy and I hit up AlaskaMetro, as we had been over a few weeks back but it was time to go all in and grab items that we did not already own. I have been mixing up different palettes and styles, layering things over the top of eachother, as Alaska does great stains and glosses and makeup that fits really well with other makeup. No need to think about where it should go on the head or the body, just wearing adding and a tip on how to change the stacking order of same same layers in the video.

Izzie’s Bakes on Mesh Updates

Izzie's Bakes on Mesh Updates

 Free BOM Updates
I have this story about Izzie Button, I am pretty sure I have put it in here before, and I can assure you it is one of my go-to stories when it comes to discussing content creators in Second Life. It happened in 2010 I had done a blog post including some of Izzie’s items, and I went on to say how I would have loved the item as separate layers, as it would make the item even more versatile. A couple of hours later I got an IM from Izzie she had gone and redone the item, packaged it, updated it and it was now an item that could be worn multiple ways. It will be always how I think of Izzie, going above and beyond for her customers, and seeing her big vibrant Hellos in plurk and her overall enthusiasm as a creator. So when I heard that she was already including Bakes on Mesh layers in her more recent releases in the past year or so, I was not shocked….but then to see that she is calling out to her customers to ask them what much older items they would like to see her update to Bakes on Mesh, I just smiled and thought, yes, that is exactly what I would expect. But then she went further. If you run, do not walk, over to Izzie’s she has started her updates and they are FREE for a limited time so that people that have previously purchased them can scoop them up and refresh their inventories.

I am showing each update on its own and then a shot of me combining them. I am wearing a much older system skin from Izzie’s and the pores update just gives it a brand new lease on life.  What I love most about this, is that while I am wearing Simone Head by Lelutka for the post, as the updates were for Lelutka and others, I was able to change over to the newer Slink Visage heads that are Bakes on Mesh and bento, and everything fit beautifully, so even if the items are not for your own, try the demos, see how things work, as Bakes on Mesh can be very universal in many cases.

Whimsy Winx – Genesis – Blueberry


I have mentioned Whimsy Winx and her landscaping and decorating prowess many times recently and over the years, she tends to get really deep into a theme and then when done leaves it out usually on one of our platforms and then it vanishes, I often give up on waiting for her to blog them herself, and just take my own pictures letting you know it was her work. However, for the past few years, she has been decorating Genesis, the region where our stores reside with Adam n Eve. We have the best landlord in Sachi Vixen because she lets Whimsy go wild as it does add to the beauty of the location. I hope you will visit sometime the space should really be enjoyed, and maybe let Whimsy Winx know how much you enjoyed it because she is incredibly talented in doing these spaces :). I also feature the latest release by Blueberry the can’t relate set mixing the mesh with some system layers as bakes on mesh.

Belle Event – set up preview

I was able to get a sneak peek during set up of the upcoming Belle Event. The event has moved its opening date to the 20th of the month, so from this month onwards that will be its new start date. I was a bit too early, as people are still getting their items ready off location, but it gave me a chance to get a feel for the new – to me – build and grab a few early bird items.

You can find more information on Belle event on their website.

Magika Hair 11 Years on

11 years later it was time for me to do a huge binge on some hair at one store, not that that is not something I do regularly at many stores, but having come across the older post the other day, it was fun to revisit the concept of the same store 11 years on.

Bakes on Mesh – System Layer Alpha Creation and Local Textures

I have done a follow-up video as mentioned in a previous post, to help get a handle on how to create alpha layers, how to not have to pay to test them by using local textures. I hope it helps those that are going through their mesh in the hopes of really embracing the bakes on mesh options available.

I mentioned that it was not easy to find something that needed the alphas, just to reiterate the top is great, it was made to use alpha as needed, so it is just an example, if I could have whipped up some mesh myself I would have.

If you have any questions let me know :)
