I cannot say that I am comfortable on any viewer at the moment, I keep skipping between IWV2 & IWV3 & the latest firestorm… none of them feel comfortable. I tried the latest Alchemy Viewer as I heard that was the one now being used for all future IW Viewers… erm WHY???? Its like stepping back in time! No built in AO, can’t back up, can’t find nothing, certainly can’t build on it… if that is the future path for all Inworldz Viewers, well I guess I have to stop using InWorldz viewers.
I have started saving back some of my gardening features as primomesh, because none of the V3’s seem able to rez some of the maps, they rez the default, which is pants! I am aware though that not every resident of IW can use a V3, I couldn’t until I got my new laptop, so I don’t want to turn everything Mesh, I will have to find a happy medium 😉
I haven’t tried the texture thingy that everyone has been raving about, I did try to texture something yesterday using firestorm & i was like wtf! I couldn’t flip it, I could see no way of flipping, the flipping the texture :p So I logged in on a V2 & fixed it!
I don’t understand why all the shaders in all of the v2’s are now greyed out so that I cannot apply them, I know I used them on my old lappy
Mesh Tree & Field, next to Sculpted version on a V3
A few years ago, after the freebies were removed from IDI (welcome center), Wolf-Tek created the Freebie Ring. I have always used it dotted around my region & it has brought lots of residents in to it. However there are only a handful of Merchants/land owners actually using it. Considering that the main cry by most in IW is that there are no people about, or ‘no one ever comes to my region’ it really surprises me that there are not more using this vital FREE tool for bringing residents to your Region. It is so easy to set up & use, there is a website where Residents can look to see where the freebies are & what is on offer, or they can just use the inworld ring to jump from one to the other.
I had forgotten just how much I enjoyed Building, I am currently building up my 3 new sims having taken the 2×2 deal 😉
Google Map has become my very best friend, a godsend for the textures I needed to create. I am almost ready to reveal the 1st part of my Build, just a few more things to finish off & it will be ready, perhaps not till after my RL Holiday in July… I am off to Gran Canaria for 10 days! I am going with my middle daughter & her family, so exciting! 😀
Later in the year I hope to be visiting the country, that I love with a passion & those parts of that country that I am trying to Construct in 3D
I build in prims & convert to Mesh to keep the prim usage down, thanks to Benski I have discovered just how easy that is to do. I am also trying to attempt some builds in SketchUp, again I owe my thanks to Benski & his tuts 😉
