Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – Calling All Roleplayers – The Medieval Fantasy Hunt

A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – Originally blogged [HERE]

I have to admit I’m a sucker for historical stuff in SL and I always try to check out historically themed hunts.  The twelfth edition of the Medieval Fantasy Hunt (MFH XII) is running until the end of this month, and starts at the United Inshcon shop sim.  You can follow the hunt either by getting the LM to the next hunt stop from the previous store’s gift or you can used the list of SLURLs at the MFH XII hunt blog.  The blog also gives the hints for each stop in both English and German (with one stop just in German) which is an advantage when you come upon a stop where the hint giver isn’t set up.  There were 52 stops in the MFH XII hunts when it started but 7 have dropped out, leaving 45 offering either a unisex or both a male and female prize.  But despite the fact there are just 45 stops, many of the prizes are ingeniously hidden at a considerable distance from the landing spot and it will take you a bit of time if you want to do the entire hunt.

First off let me show you the Odhor black mesh warrior outfit gift from PeKaS (MFH XII #15).  It’s mesh and includes alternative tunics with the hood up or with the hood down.  This outfit also includes the shoulder cape and the back-carried shield.  But the sword I’m wielding is the Viking Sword MFH XII gift from Dwar Barbosa Weapons (MFH XII #34).  The gift includes a wearable sheathed version, and is scripted with drawing and sheathing animations as well as the standard fighting animations.7Pekas,DwarBarbosa, Feyline (#15,34,28)_001The rightmost panel in the picture above shows an entire medieval Bryce woodsman outfit, which is the male gift at Feyline Fashions (MFH XII #28).  In addition to all the clothing, the outfit includes the hat, boots, bow and arrow (unscripted), and thigh-carried hunting knife.

Moving on, I’ve changed outfits to show you the Mystical Fantasy male medieval outfit in blue from C&N Designs (MFH XII #27).  The tunic and pants are mesh, and the outfit comes with the belt and boots.  It’s an elegant outfit, so I’m wearing it as I relax on Her Majesty’s Wooden Bench, the gift from An Lema (MFH XII #25).  This gift includes the animated mesh bench with all those pillows, the rug, two plant stands, and a table with decor items on it.

2AnLema:C&N_MFH#25&27_001_001

And finally, this next picture shows you the Korin knight’s outfit, the male MFH XII gift from The Seamstress (MFH XII #37).  It doesn’t include the boots (those are the boots I showed you above), but it is a mighty fine looking outfit with a gold design on the red velvet and a gold neck chain. That pistol is the Pirate Pistol MFH gift from Designs by Isaura (MFH XII #12).  The gift includes a “holstered” version which has the pistol held at the waist with a golden sash.  The pistol does fire, but is not damage-enabled unless you stick your own scripts into it.

There’s a lot more good stuff out there on the Medieval Fantasy Hunt so I hope I’ve shown you enough that you’ll go out and find all that good stuff.

Going GaGa for PekaS May Group Gift!!

After getting dressed in my new outfit, I wanted to find someplace fun to hang out…. I found the INSILICO  sim, which is a Cyberpunk roleplay community @ http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/INSILICO/190/183/3603… You dont have to be a RP player to enjoy this sim though!!!  It’s got a full shopping district, dance halls, RP areas,  as well as apartments you can rent if you are looking for a new home in an environment that is certainly playful on the senses!!

BlogPost11_AApparently I wear my GAGA sunglasses at night!!! … Me and Corey Hart must be cozy and stuff!!  I may not have been sporting armor and a jetpack but I certainly felt stylish in my new outfit from PeKaS… This skirt and top ensemble is May’s Group Gift and fits like a glove <3  It also moves well and is textured with flair…

From the Desk of… And PeKaS to Boot!

Greetings and permutations, Fab Freebers!

Server-side Baking2_001

Ok, so this really isn’t MY desk.. Jac Mornington was kind enough to lend me his place so that I could log in and get some info for the Server Side Baking (SSB) stuff that you all have been hearing about. Love asked me to share what little I know on the subject with all of you since, if you’re reading this blog, you care about the appearance of your avatar :)  So I tossed on some clothes I picked up from the monthly gift vendor at PeKaS Urban and sat down to draft up the info. The clothes include snazzy pin-stripe pants with loosened suspenders, a tank top, sweater draped over the shoulders, and a fedora (not shown.)

Well.. time to get to it. I hope this helps. If you have any questions… please by all means, pelt Love with them (kidding!)

Server-side Baking3_001

<Starts scribbling…>

Linden Lab has finished working on the Server Side Baking (SSB) improvement. I am not a representative of Linden Labs nor am I an expert (except in my own mind) but I thought I’d share with you my answers to the questions that I hear most people asking:

Q. What is server side baking?  

A. It is a modification to the LL code which will move baking (or rendering) of your avatar to the region server that your Avatar is currently occupying.  Previously all avatars were rendered on your client (or personal computer, Mac, etc)

Q. Will I have to do anything to my computer to take advantage of it?

A. Yes.  All viewers will have to be updated to use it.

Q. Do I have to update my client?

A. No, you do not have to update your client, but your avatar will continue to render the “old way” which means that there may be white masks for some parts of your avatar or clothing because some textures from  the SSB code will not be recognized by the older client.

Q. What viewers have been updated?

A. The LL Second Life V3 viewer will be updated as well as most major third party viewers. Check with your particular viewer website for updates.

Q What are the pros and cons?

A. Pros – Faster avatar rendering with less resources needed on your computer. This means your computer will be able to do things in SL a little more efficiently.

Cons – It will require you to update your viewer, assuming an update is available.  As with any change, there is likely to be some issue that hasn’t been discovered through the beta testing that may adversely affect your experience within SL.

Q. Why Why Why?

A. Because it will make avatar rendering much more efficient since now the baking will not have to depend on connections and computers of individuals which can be very laggy at times.  If you have a slow computer it will not matter to everyone else. They will see a beautifully rendered avatar  a lot more quickly.

Friday GuyDay: The Guardian

pekasapril3_001f

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me! It’s Friday GuyDay again, and this time I’m bringing you The Guardian, the April group gift from PeKaS Design Gorean. Everything you see here is included, even the boots and the over-the-eyes hood. Perfect for maintaining anonymity while doing unscrupulous pirate things. ;-)

pekasapril8_001f

My skin is AKERUKA’s long-awaited new group gift, Caesar. He comes with the facial hair you see here, as well as the dark eye shadows. I’m also wearing the *DURA* Valentine group gift hair, which is still available (along with the Christmas gift hair), and was previously modeled by Kai Trill a few times, as well as guest blogger Kyle Beckett. It has a short ponytail in the back. Be sure to pick up the free pack of hairbases while you’re there.

Now, I’m off to drink some grog and count me booty! ARRRRR!
