I might be hanging around Second Life now, as Draconis Burns. It seems
they don't require a bank/paypal/etc. info anymore, and I just tossed
in all fake data. Cross fingers, for the client to run under Wine.

Yeah.. I'm still trying to learn building. Though it doesn't help a
whole lot if I can't afford land or anything. 'cept for avatar building
that is.

Yeah, I'm Drake Gemini on there, but I don't think I'll be too active,
especially since in order to do anything big, you gotta purchase L$
(Linden Dollars) for land and whatnot...

I suppose I should check my account..... I left almost L$1000 in my bank
account there, I wonder how much I have, or if my account is still
active..... My handle on there is FlameStryke Shackle.

Yeah it's an interesting adventure if you know nothing (like me) about
this type of constructing of polys and such.
I don't see the need for land right now. I am just exploring myself
and chatting and such...mostly looking around and getting ideas.

found a few tutorials on youtube.
i am working with one of the 'cheap' avatars but have found some
inexpensive things in SLBoutique that i may try out in a while.
Dragon AV's seem to mostly be big expensive and quadruped and i want
something more anthro.


I need to set myself a reasonable budget or i'll spend too much :o
and I need to save up for a new computer mine is terrible out of date.

I've got L$1045 too. From money trees, filling out "surveys", etc. I
haven't found an avatar I really like, I'm switching between a black
winged wolf and an angel dragon (which has huge wings and massive
emits)

Yep. First time I really had fun with 3d building. Maybe this will
help me understand Blender and game scripting.

Basically all I'm doing. I haven't bought anything yet, since I am
still collecting freebies. And if you ever do decide to buy land,
learn how to code slots.

Most of them do seem to be huge, expensive, and quadruped. I actually
prefer quadruped to humanoid where it fits, but humanoid will do nicely
in a squeeze.

Just don't spend any money unless it is an absolute deal. Caveat
emptor: most stuff in SL looks like a really good deal.

I've gotten a little bit better at actual scripting myself. I learned
about the different channels, which you can use to make anything from
walkie talkies to a firebreath controller. Maybe even a shapeshifting
set of "clothing". I'll settle with something a bit more modest
first.. start building a "Wizard's wand" (a debugging tool you don't
actually finish working on)

I made an account there, but I'm not really interested in playing much
unless I can actually make my avatar look like a dragon, and I don't
know how.

It's a gimped form of constructive solid geometry.

There are anthro dragon avatars out there, in fact, more than quad. They are
also cheaper, L$900 to L$1200.

There IS a linux client. Albeit, not as complete (it only recently got a
working crash reporter and I think its still missing sound).

Welcome to your Second Life. }:=3)

Your account is never deleted. Either your SL account or your Ginko account.

I'm not quite ready for scripting yet, but i will be when i find the
right look for me. I would be curious to know if you found any useful
knowledge resources or tutorials for scripting

It was still active, strangely enough.....

Draco18s was kind enough to gift me with some money to buy an avatar. I'm
now an (almost) black dragon. I can smoke from nostrils (and the smoke
doesn't follow the nostril, like some do, once emitted it floats up and
dissipates from its starting location) and I can breathe fire, and I can
roar. Also, the wings extend when I fly and retract when I land.

It's a little odd, though, when I lie down on something, and my wings and
tail pass right through it.....

I think the Ginko account wasn't gaining interest for a bit, though, as I

Talk to Draco18s online, if you can find him. Mine cost between L$2000 and
L$3000, I think, and it's biped.

I'm just using the free stuff. Find a Ginko ATM and open an account, then
even if you've registered too late for the free allowance, you'll still get
some money from interest. The interest rate is really low right now,
though. It's at about 1% or so.....

D'oh!! I forgot to add this part in..... In the West side of St. Martin,
there's a pool and a waterslide (that you can actually ride) as well as
places to float. It's really well done, with flowing water, and the like.
And if you go into Mouselook while on the slide, it's even more fun };=8Ş

I had the same problem. But I now have one, thanks to Draco18s. It's not
perfect, but it's better than nothing, and it is closer than my human host.

How's the official wiki?

Number 2 on a google search for LSL. Or it would be if it wasn't down.

The quads are HUGE (and a lag-causer too). The wyrmling one I have is a good
15 feet long (not including the tail) and 10 feet high with a nice 20 foot or
so wingspan. The wyrm is probably one and a half to two times bigger.

Indeed. The huge dragon avatar (above) is only $10 or $12.

Clothing can't be altered by scripting, sadly. And to do the same thing with
prims would be lag inducing, not to mention when you tell it to change it'd
take a whole second for everything to catch up, as each prim does its changes
instantly, but not in tandem.

Uh....Fox Valley's little mall area has one, I think. There's also some at

0.1% daily. It's about 3 to 4% a month. It's been as high as 0.14% which is
about 4.5% a month.

Only because attachment prims are phantom. Just think of the physics errors
the engine would throw because someone's tail is inside the chair!

And in fucadia, I have to pay real monies to be a dragon. 9..9 And not the
piddling amounts it takes to be one in Second Life (as noted in an previous
post, it takes US$12 or so to buy the huge dragon avatar /for life/).

I had the same problem, I thought I would be able to return to Help
Island with a landmark.

Anyone that's interested in building stuff should go to the Ivory Tower
of Primitives (just search Ivory Tower). There's quite a lot of
interesting stuff there.

I just learned that, by reading the kitsune tail's scripts. Extremely
complex for some simple swishing motion. But color change is a little
simpler.

And AFAIK, the avatar in furcadia is a lot less customizable.

In Furcadia you can create patches that would let you be anything you
want, one place I visit has a decent quadrupedal dragon avatar as part
of it's patch.

Currently you're limited to a 256 color palette, but with the upcoming
update that is being expanded to 32-bit color, allowing for greatly
improved customization.

Yes, but it's still nice to see..... Now, if only I had a holodeck where I
could cover myself in my avatar, even if it was just to look in the mirror
or take a picture or something.....

Color, yes. As long as you aren't changing the actual texture it'll look ok
(when it changes texture it turns grey until your client downloads it, for
someone else, they'll see grey until their client downloads it).

One thing I want to try sometime is that kind of picture that you can take
that shows your aura (supposedly). I wonder if wings would show...

Maybe. It was probably the fluctuations in interest rate. I've been keeping

Oddly you can get a landmark for help island AT help island, but once you

Yes, but you're only what you want to be in your area. If you want to be a
dragon EVERYWHERE it costs lots of moolah.

Still, it's not that great. The way it is right now it has color swatches.
Parts of the av are a particular color and all you can do is change the color,
not the shape. What if I don't want those silly lines/stripes/whatever they
are on the wings? I'm SOL because I can't change that, all I can do is make
them the same color.

How did i not find that place in the first place?
Oh, i know. you have just uncovered Vincents major character flaw. he
never reads the directions, he just takes things apart until he
figures out how they work. I don't know why i do that...

bought a PHP scripting book, read the first chapter then just started
dissembling various codes until i figured out stuff...

It makes me a good service technician, but bad at learning stuff
sometimes.

Ah well, thus is life.
I went to Ivory, going back as soon as i fire this thing off. Thanks
for the heads up on that place. I think i am going to print out all
the note cards and keep them close when i start fiddling with stuff.

Never heard of that. That would be cool..... A sure way to show those
semi-believers that I'm telling the truth. Of course, the non-believers
will never believe anyway, whatever proof you give them.....
