[5:56] Max Kleiber: it appears that i won't be seeing what this is
really supposed to look like.
[5:56] Janet Rossini: michelangelo made sculptures with hammer and
chisel. i have a sculpture on my desk that was created by a laser
melting metal. it's all just material for the artist.
[5:56] NightShade Fugu: I love to learn things because the more i
know the more freeonm i get

[5:57] Janet Rossini: kuula has been working well for surprisingly
long just now ...
[5:59] Mikkei Hirons: hahaha in these days is very hot here
[5:59] Max Kleiber: indeed. however, given that you need a better
graphics card than i and i'm sure a lot of people have... i wonder
just how useful these things can ever really be.
[5:59] Janet Rossini: the tools here ARE odd, in that some are pretty
strong, and some totally missing. i really wanted a pretty sign that
said i'm not paying attention ...
[5:59] Janet Rossini: but my new computer has no decent drawing stuff on it.

[6:55] You: yeah it's like the doom game from years ago
[6:56] Dizzi Sternberg: yes
[6:56] NightShade Fugu: yes
[6:56] NightShade Fugu: the same things rearly
[6:56] NightShade Fugu: but you can form surfaces
[6:56] NightShade Fugu: by making shadown and things
[6:56] Dizzi Sternberg: but with nicer people
[6:56] You: lol yes
[6:56] NightShade Fugu: so flat is not so flat
[6:56] NightShade Fugu: when you build you will run out of primes fast
[6:57] NightShade Fugu: so the textures help you there
[6:57] You: ok thanks for the tip
[6:57] NightShade Fugu: Come
[6:57] You: I'll start with something simple I think
[6:57] NightShade Fugu: yes
[6:57] NightShade Fugu: a simple box house is the best
[6:58] NightShade Fugu: with a roof and a few walls
[6:58] You: how long did it take u to make this place
[6:58] NightShade Fugu: that is hard to say
[6:58] NightShade Fugu: it been developed over 4 month

[6:59] You: ok
[6:59] NightShade Fugu: which is stillthe basis of this place
[7:00] NightShade Fugu: when you start to get the feeling
[7:00] NightShade Fugu: of building it goes real fast

[7:05] You: I have to clean them up all the time

[7:05] NightShade Fugu: you can set the land options
[7:05] NightShade Fugu: so the objects are autereturnd

[7:06] You: ok
[7:06] NightShade Fugu: to protect you
[7:06] Dizzi Sternberg: and watch out for the option of raising
lowering the land
[7:06] You: great
[7:07] You: oh I tried flatten land earlier
[7:07] Dizzi Sternberg: because if thats left open someone could
destroy your landscape
[7:07] NightShade Fugu: we ad that here
[7:07] You: oh ok
[7:07] Dizzi Sternberg: we had it here
[7:07] NightShade Fugu: one day all land was destroied
[7:07] NightShade Fugu: because i forgot to luck the option
[7:07] You: oh thanks for telling me
[7:07] NightShade Fugu: i was crying...giggle
[7:07] Dizzi Sternberg: but we remade it better
[7:08] You: is there a way to backup your creations
[7:08] NightShade Fugu: yes all the object youh have
[7:08] Dizzi Sternberg: yes "take copy"
[7:08] You: ok
[7:08] NightShade Fugu: you shoudl keep a copy in your inventory
[7:08] NightShade Fugu: make a folder called my house
[7:08] You: ok good idea
[7:08] Dizzi Sternberg: you can have a whole castle in your pocket
[7:08] You: haha
[7:08] NightShade Fugu: yes it is true
[7:09] NightShade Fugu: giggle
[7:09] You: deep pockets
[7:09] NightShade Fugu: yes a litte SL magic
[7:09] NightShade Fugu: i show you an other thing Alia
[7:09] You: ok
[7:09] NightShade Fugu: an other way to build
[7:09] NightShade Fugu: this you seen is made with few primes
[7:09] NightShade Fugu: and th texture make the shape
[7:10] You: oh right
[7:10] NightShade Fugu: come i show you how objects can make a real nice room
[7:10] You: ok cool
[7:11] NightShade Fugu: Hi
[7:11] NightShade Fugu: here is a huge wood structure
[7:11] NightShade Fugu: holding the building
[7:11] NightShade Fugu: but that a lot og prime object you use to that
[7:11] Sensor Bulb C: Light and Sensor OFF, Bulb channel : 77
[7:11] Sensor Bulb C: Light ON - Bulb channel: 77
[7:11] NightShade Fugu: that the way you wil usually start
[7:12] You: ok
[7:12] NightShade Fugu: because you try t get the real world shown here
[7:12] NightShade Fugu: but it is often a waste
[7:12] NightShade Fugu: og you few primes
[7:12] NightShade Fugu: So the real trick
[7:13] NightShade Fugu: is to try to rationalize
[7:13] NightShade Fugu: a litte
[7:13] You: ok
[7:13] You: just build the outside?
[7:13] NightShade Fugu: yes and then use special tetures to make
things look nice
[7:13] You: and use the textures to make it look liek it's multiple shapes
[7:13] NightShade Fugu: i show you an other eample
[7:14] NightShade Fugu: Here Alia
[7:14] NightShade Fugu: we have to go to the secret parts of the castle
[7:14] NightShade Fugu: so follow me close
[7:14] You: so the decor is the texture
[7:14] NightShade Fugu: yes
[7:15] NightShade Fugu: ok you can walk in
[7:15] NightShade Fugu: else the door close on you
[7:15] NightShade Fugu: here
[7:15] NightShade Fugu: thats is just a single prime
[7:15] You: wow cool
[7:15] NightShade Fugu: youcan look out of the windows
[7:15] You: it looks so complex
[7:15] NightShade Fugu: bit is i just a wall
[7:16] NightShade Fugu: that is called an alfa texture
[7:16] You: like an alpha mask?
[7:16] Dizzi Sternberg: yes
[7:16] NightShade Fugu: where you have the picture and the a graytone
determine the transperency of the thing
[7:16] You: to allow other parts of the image through
[7:16] NightShade Fugu: yes
[7:16] NightShade Fugu: exaxtely
[7:16] You: cool
[7:16] NightShade Fugu: that what i like to use
[7:17] NightShade Fugu: because it often make things real ralistic
[7:17] You: great. so i can take some photos for textures
[7:17] NightShade Fugu: yes
[7:17] You: then just apply them
[7:17] NightShade Fugu: and you can find a ton of thextures on the net
[7:17] Dizzi Sternberg: and try and make them tilable
[7:17] NightShade Fugu: and play with those
[7:17] You: great
[7:17] Dizzi Sternberg: so they can be reapeated
[7:18] NightShade Fugu: Most in this castle is free textures
[7:18] You: yeah
[7:18] NightShade Fugu: i modified for my use
[7:18] You: matching them up is probably the tricky part
[7:18] NightShade Fugu: If you have photoshop
[7:18] NightShade Fugu: it is not so bad to do
[7:18] NightShade Fugu: matching things
[7:18] You: I use gimp, but it's similar
[7:18] You: free version
[7:18] NightShade Fugu: yes tht will work too
[7:19] Dizzi Sternberg: i usually offset the picture by 50% bothe ways
[7:19] Dizzi Sternberg: then smooth the edges where they overlap with cloning
[7:19] You: that's good. I wish my neighbours knew this. then they
wouldn't ask to buy my land all the time!to get more prims
[7:19] You: ahh yeah
[7:20] NightShade Fugu: Smile you might make a lot of money on
selling ...giggle
[7:20] You: haha
[7:20] You: this is great. thanks so much for letting me know
[7:20] NightShade Fugu: Alia
[7:20] NightShade Fugu: let go here
[7:21] NightShade Fugu: Here is a big window
[7:21] NightShade Fugu: you can not fall out
[7:21] You: ok
[7:21] NightShade Fugu: but if you look from the outsite
[7:21] NightShade Fugu: if is a bue curtain
[7:22] NightShade Fugu: it an other way to make things transperent only one way
[7:22] You: privacy - one way window
[7:22] NightShade Fugu: then no ne can look in but you can look out
[7:22] You: cool
[7:22] NightShade Fugu: it is simple to do
[7:23] NightShade Fugu: because you cn adjust textures individually
on eah side of an object
[7:23] You: oh yeah I saw the blue when I turned around
[7:23] NightShade Fugu: yes
[7:23] You: ok so just apply to one side
[7:23] NightShade Fugu: So there is a lot of things to play with
[7:23] NightShade Fugu: yes
[7:23] You: yes I can see
[7:24] You: very complex! yet simple to achieve if u know how
[7:24] You: u guys should do a tutorial/video
[7:24] NightShade Fugu: yes thats why one have to start with some
real simple things
[7:24] You: you're great teachers
[7:24] NightShade Fugu: and try to xplore what a simple prime can be used for
[7:24] NightShade Fugu: We like to learn people things...
[7:25] NightShade Fugu: we know how much fun you can have
[7:25] NightShade Fugu: building and creating...smile
[7:25] You: yeah :)
[7:25] You: I used to use moos years ago but that was all text
[7:25] You: then worlds away but u couldn't keep things like in SL

to a customer's site usually
[7:28] Dizzi Sternberg: no one to chat with
[7:28] You: ahh yeah

outside to smoke
