Keepin’ it Low Lag at Events!


As most of you know, Hair Fair 2010 begins today.  This event is one I absolutely love covering for two reasons, a portion of the profit is donated to charity and it’s HAIR!  As with all large events in SL many find fighting the lag extremely frustrating.  I encourage you to deprim, take off those face lights, and remove the HUDs.  And of course… Enter with no hair and leave with many!!!  I have many low lag avatars in my inventory just for big events.  Really there’s no need to be a Diva at large events where everyone is either gray or a cloud anyway.

There are male and female low lag skins at YABUSAKA.  With these free skins and eyes there’s no need to put on shoes, clothing, hair, or any other attachments.  Just put on the skin and go naked!!!  These low lag avatars come in metal, gold, and stalactite.

For the fashionably lag conscious head over to Lemania Indigo Designs for the Red Sequin and Swim Like A Fish dollarbie low lag AVs.  I have many more low lag Lemania Indigo creations in my inventory so their may be more in the store.

Another extremely helpful thing to battle lag is to Open debug settings (Ctrl Atl D) go to the debug settings and type in ‘RenderAvatarMax’ set the viability between 1-5.  Then all the laggy people with their demos, fancy shoes. and jewelery don’t even render on your screen and don’t affect you.  Just be sure to raise it back up to 35 people when you leave so you see everyone again.  Cajsa Lilliehook of It’s Only Fashion let me know about this tip and I was excited to share with all of you!

*Even if you derender everyone, please dress low key as a courtesy to the other guests on the sim.*

    I’m standing at the hair fair, with [Pxl] Grace skin from 2009, which has tattoos and hair on it (quite pretty actually!!), then a bikini top and daisy dukes. I look rubbish! Buuut, I look around…. people are just wearing so many prims and they have the cheek to complain about the lag!!
