Pancake, you're still on my friends list, so there's at least one!Every now and again I get the itch to return to Second Life. I loved my many years there, the escapism, the creativity, the role play, the friendships. I don’t have a solid reason why I left, combination of health issues that prevented me from being online and a computer that didn’t allow me to fully appreciate it I guess started the decline and then one day I realized I hadn’t logged on in over a year.
Then the doubts crept in. Would any of the people I spent time with still be there? Would any of my favourite places still exist? Would I have to relearn the viewers? And what about my avatar and inventory? I don’t know anything about mesh bodies or heads.
I realize I’m over thinking it, it’s probably like riding a bike, but it feels like it would be a lot of work and frustration and maybe even disappointment if I tried again. They say you can never go back, but can you? Have you?
I'd be happy to help you navigate mesh. I have been happy with Maitreya body and most modern clothing makers have a Maitreya rigged offering. I like it because your system body shape rigs fairly close with Maitreya, so your shape can be as close to the old you as possible.
When it come to heads, I've used Catwa, Lelutka, Altamura and recently Genus. All have their pros and cons, but for me, Lelutka is the way to go. It comes with a ton of bento expressions and moods and a few fun add-ons like bubblegum! IKR?
I also know a skin maker that does very lovely work and her (mostly older) freebies are useful in head and body shopping as her applier huds have most heads and bodies in them. She recently re-branded, so I'm not sure if the old store is still around or not. But I might be able to convince her to lay out some of the old ones. (After all I convinced her to make the nipples on her skins softer looking!)
Additionally, I've gotten into your old hobby of SL Photograghy. Great strides have been made and there's a big community of shutterbugs that shares locations, techniques and general help.
I work the next two nights, but I'll be off on Wed and Thurs this week. Send me an IM anytime.
