TIP: Why do I look like a particle cloud? (Formerly known as: I’ve suddenly and unexpectedly turned into an ugly woman.)

30 01 2010

Old default “Ruth” avatar

In versions of Second Life before Viewer 1.20, we used a default avatar loading form known as “Ruth”, as shown at right. When your avatar suddenly turned into an ugly woman, Residents called it being “Ruthed”, because Ruth is the historical name of an early avatar form — not unlike having a great, great-grandmother.

Default “plasma cloud” avatar

In the Second Life Viewer version 1.20 and later, your appearance is that of a plasma cloud while your avatar is loading. This effect is not permanent and your avatar will take form as things around you begin to rez (load). During this time, you may not access the Appearance Editor.

You also appear as a cloud when some information about you gets lost on the way from one place to another. However, you are not stuck this way permanently! Follow these steps to restore yourself to normal:

From your main menu, click Edit > Preferences > Graphics tab.
Slide the Quality & Performance slider to a lower setting.
Check the box next to Custom on the Graphics tab.
Move the Draw distance slider to the left.
Slide the Mesh Details sliders to Low.
Avatar Impostors is checked by default. If you have unchecked it, activate that feature again.
Additional helpful techniques:

Log out and restart Second Life (relog).
Right-click yourself, select Appearance, do NOT save anything, and click Close.
If those don’t work, try the following process:

Access and wear a default avatar.
Re-wear your normal shape, skin, clothes, and attachments. This step is much easier if you are using a pre-existing saved outfit, but remember not to save anything before your avatar is restored!.
Tip: If you tried all of the above, and your avatar is still a cloud, submit a ticket to our Support team for assistance.

To get other avatars to load faster:

Lower your draw distance.
Zoom in closely on the avatar that still shows as a cloud.





Tips for New Buyers

3 06 2009

Howdy Spooky Kids,

We all were new someday in SL. Also beside even explore places at first time, we got our first shopping once, even if it was a freebie.

When you somehow get lindens, your next step is to spent them in some interesting item you find around the metaverse. After you get your most wanted stuff, some stuff may happen (not that i am saying that this will happen), in some cases, some item may have some glitch or you need help to set up them, and you don´t know how. Well, as a worried customer, you want to contact the creator somehow to make him/her help you out with this. Some IMs the creator or sends NOTECARDS to them, but unfortunally, in most cases, with incomplete information on the title notecards, as some of the merchants have a HUGE mass of messages in a day, the messages may be capped because of some reasons:

– Merchants also participates in Groups. Hunts/Malls/Fashion, etc groups generate notices. They can disable it but it´s not an obligation, if they desire to have the news from the other people. Notices is stated as like normal IMs , resulting the mass capped message that will be on the creator´s box.

– Greeters that send green texts to the owner –  (AKA traffic stats bots) wich send to the merchant´s mailbox a list of people who have recently visited his place, in every minute. This mass message may up ending capped messages too.

– Worried Customers trying to contact the Merchant: People stay calm. The most secure way to contact the merchant is only sending them a notecard. Instant mass IMs may up not appearing at his viewer and some cases doesn´t even go to the mailbox. Don´t blame us if you just send Instant messages and end up not getting any response. It´s not that we are avoiding it, it´s just really we don´t receive AT ALL.

About Sending a CORRECT NOTECARD to be visualized by the merchant:

– Try always to add your issue on the TITLE LINE. If possible with your avatar name, to rapidly contact you. Most of “New Note” notecards end up confusing us and not having the properly priority. When we see it´s a serious issue we try to get online soon as possible, if not we just wait for the time we get able to connect. And some people doesn´t even read because they might think it´s mall invitation notes.

– If you can´t find the item you bought: Try always to use the INVENTORY SEARCH form on the Inventory window. Look up for the name of the item you bought, and if it was recent, you can look up on the “Recent Items” tab.

– Some people are lazy to create their own notecard and rewrite inside of other avatar´s notecard and send it to the merchant anyway, with no title or identification. and may end up we getting contact with the wrong person. That´s why we ask for your SL name on the NC title.

-If you are looking for simple scripts, you may have a look on the Official Second Life Forums or SL wiki, you may up finding them for free instead of paying much for an item that you can get for free.

– When navigate on the Xtreet website, if you had any issue with online purchase, try always contact support first than send rude messages to the merchant blaming them because of the miss delivery. Most of time miss deliveries are caused of some lag in Xtreet – Xtreet Magic box communication. How to contact support – https://www.xstreetsl.com/support.php

– Be Respectful no matter what the situation is. As we aren´t on face to face, we always want the best for our customers, don´t assume the worst happened, give the merchant one or two days to contact you back before you get on nervous. As you may know, we all do have a Real life and sometimes things may gets us in surprises.

There are some few tips to have a hapilly and safely shopping in sl, in world or online, trying to following them you may get the things sorted out very easily with no  confusion at the end. I am sure lots of merchants wants to express everything like it´s written here but in our profiles we don´t have much space for it, so don´t think when we say “send your issues by notecard” or something like that, we don´t want to be rude or arrogant. We want to help you, just help us too to reach you in the easy way.

That´s all for now!

NebuchadNezzar – NDN At Hair Fair 2009!

NebuchadNezzar @ Hair Fair 09

Howdy Spookykids,

This year we are happy and glad to participate in the most big Hair Event of Second Life. Most part of the donations goes to Locks of Love, wich is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 18 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. For more information on this incredible organization, please visit: http://www.locksoflove.org/index.html .

This year, Hair Fair will take place early summer of 2009 and is scheduled to run from June 20th through July 4th. The SLURL will be published soon on the Official Hair Fair Website – http://hair-fair.net/, so keep on eye for the landmark!





How to kill sales and drive off customers. (Funny Rant)

17 02 2009

This is a funny rant. Don´t take it serious!

First of all use 1024 x 1024 textures for all your products. This will ensure slow slow load times making the customer impatient and leave. Smaller textures like 512 x 512 are 1/4th the size and allow faster load times and in most cases aren’t going to appear less detailed then ones 4 times the size and you don’t want to actually let customers see your items. God forbid using anything smaller like 256 x 256 textures..

Find a mall where everyone uses 1024 x 1024 textures also helps kill those pesky sales and keep customers who don’t have time to stand around two hours waiting for textures to load.

Make sure you use lots of network vendors. These babies love to lag and take forever to load textures. And if you need a vendor system don’t use those non-network ones because they are just too fast and never cause much lag.

Have your store layout that is confusing and poorly arranged. This will make sure any customer who is looking for a particular items hopelessly lost and they will probably give up.

Make sure the teleport spot faces away from your store and faces out to other stores. This will give new customers a chance to go shopping at stores you don’t own because hey they think they teleported to your store. Best way to do this is face away from your door as if you just walked out of it then set the teleport location and Landmark.

And last but not least ignore those pesky IMs and note cards when people ask for help. By doing this you can be assured they won’t recommend your store to others or even wear your items and use them where others can see how cool they are. After all most sales are word of mouth and others seeing people using and wearing your things.
