Bakes on Mesh – a basic primer – Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World   Leave a comment

Monday, August 26th, 2019 saw the formal release of Bakes on Mesh (BoM) for Second Life, and with it, an attempt to make system wearables (skins, tattoo and clothing layers) usable on modern mesh a…

Inara has an excellent read for everyone who, as we are, will be experimenting with Bakes on Mesh.  I’m believing, from what we’ve tried so far, that it will be very similar to what we had before the rise of mesh heads and bodies, but with new channels added for some items.  This definitely brings back the ability to layer makeup … and makes me wish I’d hung on to some of my old tattoo packages, as well as old system clothes.

I can say that the old vendors of tattoo-level makeup will be getting fresh infusions of lindens into their accounts, as people start digging into the older depths of Avatar Components on the Marketplace.  Classic skin sellers, such as my old, reliable PXL, will get a fresh lease on their older products as well.

Check with your body and head providers, and see if they support BoM yet, either native or as a relay.  There’s much to learn here about glitches (such as “sparkle toes”), but I think it will pay in the end.

REBLOG — A Word About Blogging in Second Life – Magick Thoughts SL   2 comments

I reblog this article by AmandaMagick for your consideration.  This blog has always been willing to consider publicizing any items submitted to it by designers, provided we like them; but we have remained firmly independent in editorial policy, able to express our own preferences, not bound to pushing any particular product.  The trend of our fellow SL bloggers to hire themselves out is not a happy one to me.

Having said that, it’s the right of any other SL fashion blogger to sign up for such publicizing work.  Just be sure you read the agreement they’re asking you to comply with before you “sign” it.  Admittedly, it would be difficult to enforce such things in a court, yes.  But there’s a moral obligation to live by what you agreed to.

Announcing some Changes – I am now a Linden Lab Employee – StrawberrySingh.com

From Strawberry Singh:

There have been some changes in my real life that I wanted to share with you and be completely transparent about. I have been hired by Linden Lab as their …

This is going to be an exciting time for Berry.  We’ll miss her in the regular blogging trenches of Second Life, as I’ve already told her on her article; but I understand her feeling that, as an employee of the Lab now, she needs to put a firewall between roles.

As she notes in her article, please don’t contact her directly to solve any problems; that won’t work, and will load her down with unfulfillable requests.  File a normal ticket.  Be a nice avatar.
