Last year I released a few physics layers on the marketplace for L$1. Since then I’ve received a wonderful response to them along with many questions on how to modify them. Today I was finally able to make a tutorial showing you guys how you can edit those layers, or create your own physics layer, if you like. I also showed you how to completely turn off physics in Second Life so you never have to see anyone bounce if you prefer!
Firestorm Physics – All of the information I shared in the video tutorial above can be found on the Firestorm Physics Page written out in full detail and with even more information so I highly recommend you visit that page.
In order for the physics to work properly with mesh clothing, you need to wear clothing that is rigged for the particular body you are wearing or your body parts will just fall out of the mesh clothing. I am wearing the Maitreya mesh body in the video with clothing that is specifically rigged for that body from Blueberry.
If you have any further questions about physics, feel free to leave a comment or email me and I’ll do my best to answer them if I can.
If you’re following me on Facebook or Twitter, you might have noticed my updates a few minutes before I started streaming Second Life live on my Youtube Gaming channel. I planned to share photography tips last night while I streamed, but after watching it this morning I realized it didn’t go as well as I […] Continue reading →
Maitreya AutoHide BodyFaces allows creators to place a script in their mesh clothing, that hides the parts of the body that need to be hidden for that item. When the mesh clothing item gets attached, it will automatically hide the sections that were programmed in the script to hide. This makes it easier for us […] Continue reading →
A few weeks ago I blogged a water tutorial that required you guys to download the Flood plugin for photoshop. Today I’m blogging a tutorial that will let you play with water inworld, instead of photoshop. The talented and very generous Cory Edo of Trompe Loeil has released 10 water normal maps for free which […] Continue reading →
I wasn’t planning on doing a tutorial for this plugin, but I had so much difficulty installing it that when I finally got it installed, I figured it would be a good idea to do a tutorial on it as well. I heard about Flaming Pear’s Flood Photoshop plugin from another Second Life resident and […] Continue reading →
Social networks are for socializing and meeting like-minded people online that you can chat with and possibly create bonds and friendships. That being said, my post will focus on how a Second Life resident can use social networks (presumably using their SL pseudonym) to promote their business or brand. I’ve shared a list of all […] Continue reading →
Ever since I did the Flat Rodvik meme, I’ve had quite a few people ask me to do a tutorial on making a cutout in Second Life, so they can make some themselves. So here’s a quick video tutorial showing how I did it. You can click over to youtube to watch it in full […] Continue reading →
(before and after) Style credits to this picture can be found in this post: Makeup Forever! A lot of people have been asking me to do more Photoshop video tutorials showing how I process my images, especially my headshots. It really varies most of the time though, depending on each picture and how much I […] Continue reading →
(this is a raw shot from sl) Yesterday I did a tutorial showing how you can move and position an avatar on a sim where you don’t have rez rights. The link to that is here: Moving Avatars. After I did that post, a few people on different social networks shared how you can move […] Continue reading →
What is Google Authorship? If you are a habitual “Googler” like I am you probably noticed while doing searches that certain search results have the author’s picture and name beside it like mine do in the search results displayed in the image below. This is called Google Authorship. Google introduced Authorship around the end of […] Continue reading →
Today I thought it would be a fun idea to do a meme where everyone can share a bit of their talents. Meme instructions: Blog a tutorial and teach me something that you think I might not know about (even if I do, doesn’t matter, do it anyways). The tutorial can be something within Second […] Continue reading →
If you have a Facebook profile for your Second Life avatar, you probably already know that the SL community on Facebook is very friendly and active. Everyday that I login to my SL facebook, I am greeted by at least 5 to 10 friend requests from other SLers. I always accept, as long as I […] Continue reading →
A couple of weeks ago I was inspired by this pose and dress and wanted to create an image of a girl falling apart in pieces. I was experimenting with different tutorials I found online and they just weren’t helping me as much. So I showed my plurk friends a work in progress image (in […] Continue reading →
I often get people asking me which blogging platform to use when starting a blog. I refer them to my Fashion Blogging 101 tutorial (which is a bit dated now, but still has a lot of good advice). I also say that I have tried and have blogs on all three: wordpress, blogger and tumblr […] Continue reading →
