Getting my Head around PS cs6 #InWorldz

For almost 11 yrs now I have been a content creator for virtual worlds, when I began in #Secondlife February 2006, I tried photoshop, but just could not get my head around it, then I found paint.net even with that it took me a while to learn about layers & I was always aware that there was only so much that I could do with the program, even with the plugins for brushes & effects. I knew that if I could just use #photoshop then my textures, therefore my designs, would be so much better. I did try Gimp as i heard that was very like photoshop, but I would open it up see the 3 windows & quickly close it again. I have tried photoshop a few times over the years & have never felt as comfortable with it as i do using paint.net. However I think all that is about to change with the PS Cs6. I don’t know why but suddenly its beginning to make sense to me. I am comfortable with the interface though its a lot harder than the one I am used to with #paint.net, I don’t feel as overwhelmed by it as I once did. There are 1000’s of tuts on youtube on how to do things & I can hardly wait to begin designing my very 1st item of clothing with this wonderful program. I love all of the brushes I have found Free & installed. I love playing about with them all & seeing the wonderful effects I can use on my textures. For years I have gone with ‘You can’t teach an old dog new tricks’ now its ‘Your never too old to learn’ I put it all down to my faith in LOA which has literally changed my life since I became a deliberate creator of my own reality. There is Nothing I cannot be, or do, or have!

The 2×2 Deal #InWorldz

Last Month I took advantage of the Free Month & purchased a Region of my own again, in anticipation of the New 2×2 Deal that is expected to start up next week.

I have so many plans for the other 3 regions that will join mine when the deal starts up & I have been preparing builds ready for when I have the other 3 regions.

This is my Region ~ Rose Petal Island It holds all of my Creations so is like a Mega Store 😉

This is the Deal

Four 256×256 meter regions arranged in a square. Each of the four regions would hold a maximum of 12,000 prims for a total of 48,000 prims allowed in a 2×2 area. If you have a region with less than 12k prims you can add the deal.

Today also saw the launch of the much talked about Premium Accounts or InWorldz Plus Membership

Get your own little plot with roughly 1,400 prims at $5.95 USD, with 500I’z per month spending monies, unlimited use of the Plus Sandbox and more!

Don’t need a parcel? That’s fine too! You’ll get all the perks of being a plus member including merchant discounts and access to the premium sandbox, plus 1500I’z at the beginning of each month!

I think that current Region owners will become plus members automatically, but don’t quote me on that one 😉

Time for Reality…

A few months ago I came across a video on youtube which reawakened me in ways I had forgotten, that Video was only 1 from the many freely available. Since that day I have been looking at the world very differently & choosing my thoughts deliberately. This has given me a new lease of life, I have become once more the Woman that I used to be before I allowed heartache to pull me down. Only this time around I understand more, about myself, about my life & what I want in my Life.

I want reality. I have spent far too many years living in a virtual world which, I feel, took me away from the reality of Life. It once brought me joy to spend time in my little world, but it no longer does. I find myself looking around me & thinking I want that. I want a life in the real world, like I used to have.

I have well being, my Health is restoring, I am losing weight & feeling Happier than I have done in years & all because I chose to change my thoughts.

The more I do this though, the more I feel myself distancing from those things I had come to know. The things that got me through some unpleasant years, but also left me stuck in that time, yearning for more but achieving nothing. I felt stale so I became stale. I no longer feel stale, I feel fresh & alive & I want to Live life to the full & feel Joy every day.

I do not want to give up my virtual world entirely, but I am feeling myself not so drawn to it, not logging in unless i have to, not even creating content which once used to sustain me & make me feel worthy.

I feel worthy without doing all of that. I am worthy of so much more.

Right now I am uncertain of my virtual World, but my Real World, is looking & feeling so much brighter to me & I want more of that. I want to walk among nature & feel the sun on my face & breath in fresh air. I want to smile at people & have them smile back. I want to converse with them, laugh with them & feel real joy in my heart.

Life is Wonderful, go outside & enjoy it

Meshing around in Inworldz

Mesh has finally come to Inworldz!

Mesh is completely new for me, I had worn it in SL, but didn’t really know that much about it. Now I am learning super fast! lol. There is so much that goes into it, I don’t just mean the creating, its all the rigging & weighting you have to learn. I began a few months back learning Blender… boy is that an experience! I am comfortable with the interface now & I keep a handy list around for reference. I made a couple of simple skirts, which I had thought were correct they were nothing special, but I had created them. I uploaded these to Inworldz when Mesh was activated & although they moved with my Avatar it was clear that they did not deform as they were supposed to do with the deformer having been added to the IWv2 Viewer. I tried several ways, I didn’t even know if I was uploading them correctly. Then I came across some free meshes, I uploaded a few, still the same they just were not deforming. A friend then took a look at them & uploaded them to see what was going on… apparently they were old files & the rigging was off slightly & that was why they did not deform.

Luckily I was able to open them in Blender 2.67 & I began to re rig them, following the tutorials I had been using to learn how to make mesh clothing. I uploaded the newly rigged files & hey presto… they worked with the deformer… hurray! I thought, but oh… why are they distorting the new textures I had made, they hadn’t done that before… and here is where I quickly had to learn all about weighting.. until I get that right I wouldn’t even begin to release them.

It is a trial & error which is how I learnt to do all I can do anyway.

Right now I am trying out different ways to weight the mesh so that they move perfectly on the avatar without breaking or distorting my textures. Texturing them is really quite simple, a lot easier than texturing a sculptie I have found. I am enjoying learning this new skill, I just had not realised how much work was involved… no wonder they charge so much for Mesh content in SL. It certainly makes you appreciate the expense once you know exactly what is involved behind every item of mesh clothing.

There is good Mesh & bad mesh & I want to only make good Mesh, so Watch this space 😉

Happy Meshing!

Lag free Inworldz

I came across these 2 Videos today, made by 2 of the Founders… Ele & Tranq. I have never seen them before, maybe I blinked & missed them? Maybe you did too so here they are. Proof that having over 15k prims or upto 40k prims on your Region.. there is no lag.

Not sure who uploaded this next one, but its deffo Tranq in the vid 😉

Both were done over 2yrs ago I think, but things have improved so much more since then, so if your having issues with lag… check your connection 1st 😉

Since getting my new lappy I haven’t come across any lag at all, but on my old one I found it laggy in Regions that used a lot of Sculpties.

Although I do seem to feel a bit laggy these days on the IW Viewer 1.48 the Beta viewer is fine for me, which is odd

Remember that in Inworldz you can get upto 45k prims on a Region can you just imagine what you could do with all those prims? and Mega prims at that! 128 x 128

A Region costs just $75 per Month with no set up fees, presently

A Mainland Region costs just $60 per Month with no set up fees, presently

You just gotta Love Inworldz! Just find an empty space & hit buy 😉
