it was the 80s

DeuxLooks - it was the 80s

80s memories. Are you ready? Our moms dressed us in puffy jeans tapered at the ankles. Cyndi Lauper, Princess Diana, and Madonna were style icons. There were a LOT of bangle bracelets and for some reason, fluorescent socks. These new jeans in Second Life really bring me back to a time in my youth that I don’t really remember, but I am sure was really epic.

In other news, I am still struggling to use the official LL viewer in any real capacity. It turns out – after asking for help (thank you!) – that most of you use Firestorm too! For now since I can’t use FS anymore, I have a temporary “fix.” I am learning to take screenshots with the official viewer (meh) but shop/TP around with Genesis, which rezzes things much faster. The Genesis UI makes no sense either so I can’t comfortably use it for snapshots. Obviously I really miss the bells and whistles in Firestorm. It had everything I wanted. %$#^&*!!!!!

I will be experimenting with different viewer settings so I can markedly improve my snapshots. In the meantime, bear with me!

is this minecraft?

So apparently, my brand new computer and video card are actually fine. But it seems something changed in my Firestorm viewer (yes, it’s up to date) and even having a different GPU installed to test it doesn’t fix the flickering video and distortions. WTF?

No idea what changed, but I am back to using the official LL viewer. It feels and looks like Minecraft. My avatar looks one-dimensional and the lighting is ultra dark and flat (even on ultra high). I have no idea if this is supposed to be an easy viewer to use, but for me, it’s incredibly clunky – and none of my preferences seem to persist session to session.

So since Firestorm seems no longer to be an option for me, do you use a SL Viewer that you really like and would recommend? Appreciate your advice! Thank you <3

Unfortunately it looks like my brand new computer’s video card is dying already and I can’t log in to SL without massive screen flickering and distorted colors. I managed to take this snap last night before it all went bonkers, but I won’t be able to include full credits for now.

Hopefully it will be fixed soon! Until then, I do know you can find the hair and sweater new at Collabor88!

This skirt deserved its own post. So here it is.

It’s so very good. The textures and details are perfection. Toast Bard of (fd) remains one of the most significant contributors to my SL wardrobe. And, looking back over the years, that’s been true for an incredibly long time.
