By the way: 3rd Rock Grid was apparently shut down two days ago, the night from 9th to 10th at midnight, almost four weeks after the announced shutdown date.

@juno_rowland ... Ich wollte mal virtuell einen weiblichen Anime-Charackter Cosplayen und war auf der Suche nach einem langen bis zu den Knöcheln fallenden Faltenrock. Ich habe ewig gesucht und bei diesem dann Gefundenen habe ich dann auch die Schwierigkeiten in der Animation für manche Positionen erkannt. Aber man kann es nach einer gewissen Zeit im Alltag gut händeln. :-)

Version 2 of the Mardyke Fort. Note that it would have been disused by the time the New Quay was built. As it stands it might have done a decent job guarding the river but its squareness isn't doing it any favours beyond that. Tempted to go hexagonal or round but I'm not sure that would help.

I haven't checked interlocking fields of fire etc but having four cannon per side would have helped with the fact that they'd ultimately overheat if fired more than once every 10 minutes or so.


At least @Jupiter Rowland and I managed to find out halfway in time about the 3rd Wind introduction event that happened over the last weekend. We joined in on Sunday for some five hours of music and tours. We've seen places that would really be a loss if they had to perish along with 3rd Rock Grid, especially the science-fiction-themed sims.

Good thing I've brought a bag with extra beachwear plus my bunny accessories because there's also a club where wearing them is at least recommended.

@stefan (シュテファン) Bei uns scheint das Ziel von beinahe jedem weiblichen Avatar mit Meshbody zu sein, möglichst sexy daherzukommen.

Superkurze Röckchen und Kleidchen dominieren sowohl die Avatare selbst als auch die Freebie-Sims, und das versucht heutzutage niemand mehr, mit Schwierigkeiten beim Rigging zu rechtfertigen. Lange Hosen sind nicht nur fast ausnahmslos hautenge Jeans, sondern sie werden fast ausnahmslos bauchfrei getragen. Überhaupt scheint kaum jemand Oberteile zu tragen, die nicht bauchfrei sind. Sogar die meisten Weihnachtsoutfits sind entweder bauchfrei oder Kleidchen.

Dazu sind gefühlte 98% aller Schuhe, die ihren Weg aus SL hierher gefunden haben, für die hohe Fußposition, und davon wiederum haben die allermeisten Stilettoabsätze, und 90% der weiblichen Avatare haben die Fußposition permanent auf hoch gestellt. Der Anteil von Plateauschuhen wird immer größer, und der Trend geht zu 15-cm-Sohlen mit 30-cm-Absätzen. Und wenn man sich die "Beute" der letzten Jahre ansieht, ist alles, was nicht Stiefel ist, Sandale.

Natürlich wird behauptet, das kann man immer und überall tragen. Dann sieht man jede Menge nackte Haut auf Weihnachtssims mit Schnee und Eis ebenso wie monströse Plateauschuhe an tropischen Sandstränden.

Irgendwie ist es auch verrückt. Ich trage überhaupt nichts, was aus SL geklaut wurde, allenfalls Meshes, die Damien Fate vor vielen Jahren der OpenSim-Community kostenlos zur Verfügung gestellt hat. Für meinen Body gibt es an genau dafür gemachter Kleidung genau einen langen Rock.

Und trotzdem kann ich mich allem Anschein nach vielseitiger und passender kleiden als die zahllosen Avatare, an denen alles geklaut ist.

Vielleicht liegt das auch daran, daß ich bei Unterwäsche, Lingerie, Badesachen, Strumpfwaren und den meisten anderen hautengen Sachen auf Layerkleidung angewiesen bin und daher damit keine Berührungsängste habe. Und so bin ich einer von nicht einmal einem Dutzend weiblichen Avataren in OpenSim, die auch mal Strumpfhosen tragen.

@juno_rowland Ja du hast recht. Ist recht selten in der vr und manchmal fühlen sich meine Avi’s auch recht oft overdressed. Aber dabei heißt es doch, dass Kleider Leute machen. 👍🤣 #secondlife #opensim

Regarding my recent #opensim post. I realize that there are other grid owners here, and their grids really are excellent too. I would like to put forward the notion. We are kind of like the chieftains of our collective world. We have a responsibility to protect our people and provide leadership in the wider community

If I may be so bold,I would like to suggest to the other grid owners to place a similar anti-bullying message on their pages. We have a diverse community, it benefits us all.

I am very happy I will have more time to devote to our virtual world.

GroovyVerse is an #opensim grid, and one of the larger ones in HG Business' top 20, and #6 in land.

Recent bullying in the #opensimulator community has made us realize that there is a need for a safe, peaceful place to call home, where LGBT people are respected,valued and loved. We will be opening our doors to new members over the coming weeks.

I'd love to hear what people's needs are, and how we can better serve you

Still fiddling with the lower end of Chapel Street, all very rough.

The grey structure was the Mardyke fort built as the river end of the mudwall defence system during to the Civil War. A converted salt-house, it probably blocked access to Moore's so-called New Quay such that in the early 1670s he asked for entries, I'm guessing to allow traffic from the quay to exit. During the war there were probably gates across the street.

The jetty is for the ferry, likely a large rowboat.


Did a little work on the Irvine-inspired build of late C17 Liverpool by terraforming and texturing Chapel Street. #OpenSim

GroovyVerse Railroad


My friend has been advocating for quite a while, that we should be including alt text in our images, describing the scene for vision impaired readers. I am going to try to be better about doing it, and I encourage others to do so as well.

Below is a picture of our railroad in our virtual world, GroovyVerse.

#opensim #opensimulator #vr #virtualworlds #secondlife

Excited. I got PeerTube installed on one of our servers. Now I am trying to grigure out how to get hooked up to relays.

I have been hearing about the Patch Linden ageplay thing all week, and just kind of dismissed it. I finally read the article. :(

#Secondlife has been a pretty dismal experience for a long time. I have been hanging on because of friends, and a church community.

I deleted my SL account this morning. We have our own beautiful #opensim world with good people, and fun, hopeful projects. I need to concentrate on that. SL truely is a rotted shell of it's former self. Right to the core.
