Happy Independence Day, to my fellow Americans, and those celebrating!

-Hug a soldier (or handshake)
-Thank a veteran
-Be grateful for your freedom and rights; many have fought and died to uphold them!
-Remember what it means to be the UNITED States of America---Together we stand strong; Divided we fall
-Love thy neighbor, despite your differences
-Remember it is about more than just fireworks and "blowing shit up", 'Murica. ;)

American Girls and American Guys
We'll always stand up and salute
We'll always recognize
When we see Old Glory Flying
There's a lot of men dead
So we can sleep in peace at night
When we lay down our head

My daddy served in the army
Where he lost his right eye
But he flew a flag out in our yard
'Til the day that he died
He wanted my mother, my brother, my sister and me
To grow up and live happy
In the land of the free

Now this nation that I love
Has fallen under attack
A mighty sucker punch came flyin' in
From somewhere in the back
Soon as we could see it clearly
Through our big black eye
Man, we lit up your world
Like the 4th of July

Hey, Uncle Sam
Put your name at the top of his list
And the Statue of Liberty
Started shakin' her fist
And the eagle will fly
And there's gonna be hell
When you hear Mother Freedom
Start ringin' her bell
And it'll feel like the whole wide world is raining down on you
Oh, brought to you Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue

Oh, justice will be served
And the battle will rage
This big dog will fight
When you rattle his cage
And you'll be sorry that you messed with
The U.S. of A
'Cause we'll put a boot in your ass
It's the American way

Hey, Uncle Sam
Put your name at the top of his list
And the Statue of Liberty
Started shakin' her fist
And the eagle will fly
And there's gonna be hell
When you hear Mother Freedom
Start ringin' her bell
And it'll feel like the whole wide world is raining down on you
Oh, brought to you Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue
Oh, oh, of the Red, White and Blue
Oh, oh, of my Red, White and Blue

Bad news (good news for all you Linda Kellie haters): Zadaroo seems to be offline.

Good news (bad news for all you Linda Kellie haters), in case you haven't heard it yet: The Zadaroo content has been uploaded to the Internet Archive late last year.

Find it this way: https://archive.org/search?query=zadaroo

Also, I've just heard the recommendation to take local copies.

Aurora Starchild: Would you mind telling a bit more about Zadaroo to us newbiews? Thanks! 7 months ago
A fully legal mesh radio with 48 minutes of real content from the 1920s and 30s, inter spaced with the station call-sign and various audio ephemera. It is based on the first consumer/everyday use radios available in the era.
Unavoidable: you may hear an audio skip or repeat- this depends on your internet, your viewer, and how laggy of a place in your sim you put it. Long audio sets do this in OS.

Have fun- don't put it on SL, sell it, or tell people it's your creation from scratch.

Today starts The Merchant Sales Event at this year's OSFest and it's happening this week from Tuesday September 26th through Saturday September 30th. This is a grid-wide event with multiple merchants and sales and freebies galore! There are merchant teleport boards like the one pictured that are spread around the grid for convenience.

For example, one of our merchants, Sarvonne Creations Etc, is offering a 50% off deal on "Blues/Jazz Era" themed AI art series at her CheriNet Et Alias Gallery Shop at her OSFest store.

Lunaria Emporium is holding its biggest sale of the year. All of my castles and entertainment venues will be 75% off Kitely Market prices, and all my other smaller items displayed everywhere will be free, including some Egyptian pieces and some brand new Art Deco pieces and furniture not yet available anywhere.

DON'T MISS THIS

Start here, then look for the merchant teleport board: grid.opensimfest.com:8022:HG-Welcome

Les couleurs d'opensim changent ! Encore en beta-test, le nouveau viewer de Linden change son modèle colorimétrique. Nous ne savons pas si et quand ces modifications seront portées sur Firestorm. Opensimulator a d'ores-et-déjà intégré les fonctions llLinear2sRGB et llsRGB2Linear. Les testeurs intrépides d'Atlasgrid se sont jetés dessus et les ont décortiquées. Sur le nuancier de gauche, les anciennes couleurs. Sur celui de droite, les nouvelles.

The colors of opensim are changing ! Still in beta-test, the new Linden viewer will incorporate a new color model. We don't know when and if it will be ported to Firestorm. But Opensimulator has yet implemented the LSL functions llLinear2sRGB and llsRGB2Linear. Fearless Atlasgrid's testers has dived in. Left colorchecker : old colors. Right : new colors.

Quintonia now VivoSim
As VivoSim seems to have got over the expected teething issues, I will now be shutting down Quintonia on Monday (10 April) - If you have a quintonia account, it has been migrated to Vivosim (https://vivosim.net)

a little easter present..a cute easter basket with little chicks and fitting table!

Quintonia is evolving!
It is migrating to its new home called VivoSim & at some point Quintonia servers will shut down. When that happens, you will still be able to continue using Quintonia items, but the HUD & Exchange will no longer function. However, I hope you will have decided to replace those with the new VivoSim replacements, which already offer some great new features with plenty more planned!

Mintor and other regions now at hg.vivosim.net:8002

Sure Is Nice Seeing More And More Hyper Grid Friends , It's Lovely To Meet you And Thank You For Visiting And Becoming Our New Friends :)

Overlooking King David's palace and the Tabernacle in the background. I hope you'll visit and enjoy this region which is an effort to acknowledge the beauty of the land of Israel and Jerusalem in the time of King David and the architecture. Such a beautiful culture. Perhaps we'll see you there. Shalom.
Well they're here, after a long battle with those ornery rabbits, the carrots are ready! You can find Gram-Z's carrot patch at our Mall region.... "grid.genesis-roleplay.org:8002:Masala Al Kahov" .... the box comes with a single carrot, a carrot bunch, a row of 6, two rows of 6 and 10 rows of six, all of them only 1 prim each, so you can have your little carrot patch as big or small as you like. They make nice additions to "prep" scenes and they're just fun. I had such fun making them and I hope you'll enjoy using them for your garden, farm or kitchen scenes. Blessings - GramZ
My 2022 Christmas gift for the community, at least for the Ruth2 v4 users:

Nail polish for Ruth2 v4.

Two boxes with BoM nail polish in 31 colours altogether. One box contains the 22 original colours from the Ruth 2.0 nail polish applier plus one bonus colour. The other one contains the 8 nail polish colours from the Ruth2 v4 HUD, but now covering the whole nail. Both sets come with a Readme notecard with instructions.

They're currently only available in the Westend (https://opensimworld.com/hop/80119) at my R2 shop (at 44/67/22, opposite the Statue of Liberty), but I've passed copies to Ai Austin, and I expect it to appear on the official R2 sim soon. I'll also roll them out to other sims offering Ruth2 v4.

Both boxes are full-perm (or should be; drop me a note if they aren't) and licensed under Creative Commons CC0. You can copy the boxes or buy the content.

Jupiter Rowland: Well, Austin was surprisingly fast. He added both boxes to the official sim (hg.osgrid.80:RuthAndroth) yesterday. 2 years ago

Our Condolences for the Death of Her Majesty the Queen

Our condolences following the death of Her Majesty Queen

I wanted to clarify my stance as a rebel. To me a rebel is ANYONE who takes a stand for freedom, without government, corporate, or any movements/associations/organizations controlling those freedoms of speech, livelyhood, happiness, or actions that do not harm, or endanger the freedoms, or life of others. We ALL have a right to disagree with others, and to even voice our opinions, but ultimately? How someone lives, what they do is their own personal choice, and right, and must be respected, and treated as such. I disagree with many things, but respect what others believe, and feel. Yah I pray. I believe in God, Jesus, and our Constitution. That is simply my personal beliefs. I respect anyones choices, beliefs, and opinions as their own, and their right. It also means too stubborn to give up, or die to me! haha! ;)
Prayers, love, hugs n high 5's to EVERYONE. :)

To all those who feel the desperate desire to criticize my build based on religious idiology and not artistic creativity, please read the little attachment on this post and be aware, the next clown that does it will have their post deleted as well. I am NOT here to argue religion and I don't give a rat's ass what you do or don't believe. I'm here to create beauty based on a historical city described in the Bible that was built by probably the most famous King in history, I am not here to indoctrinate, convert or criticize so if that's your game, kindly play it elsewhere because I don't have time for your bullshit. My beliefs are mine based on 60 years of research and I don't care one inkling of a little bit if you agree or not so please keep your argumentative, judgemental, holier than thou posts to yourself and stay off my page.

Muck What They Think
A new and quality assured 100% cool outfit at oh HELLO. Proper pigtails. Puddle boots. Overalls with a "muck what they think" patch. (Takes a closer look) Oh my! Somebody mucked up that patch! But there is also a way cool skull patch and a skull design on the puddle boots. Why? I don't know. But it's way cool! As always, you get all fat pack items and a preset body alpha hud.
fireandicegrid.net:8002:Xinashi

A reminder. Outfits without the "quality assured" label may be missing items due to asset loss following a grid attack. I'm working to fix the missing asset issue, and you can help. Each outfit vendor has an "oh HELLO Outfit Status Report" note card. DELETE the sentence on the note card that does NOT apply:
* OK (All assets found and all textures present)
* NOT OK (Assets and/or textures missing)
Then drop the report note card into the mailbox next to the oh HELLO shop sign.

Thanks!

I have become aware that there are various grids saying they have or will stop the use of the SatyrFarm system due to issues with the animal scripts in the Quintonia edition. As soon as I was made aware of this issue I released an update (version 5.8 of the animal script) and you can pick up the rezzer/updater for this in Box 1 from the Mintor store. I would strongly recommend people to update their animals to this version as soon as you can so as not to get on the wrong side of your grid owners etc. Thanking you for your help in this.

How many of you have wanted to install Marvelous Designer only to find how expensive it is? Me too, I had it at one time and loved it. I made a skirt that I still have and wanted to try creating clothing again so researched and found a great "Garment Tool" addon for blender it is only 40 USD and works just like Marvelous Designer! I am learning it now so wish me luck lol this is where to purchase it! https://bartoszstyperek.gumroad.com/l/GarmentTool

Han_Held: I'm not sure I'd buy it -but I'm intrigued and passed the link along to a friend who's into blender. Thank you! 2 years ago
This is a little tribute piece to late great Josephine Baker and her infamous Banana Dance. Oh what it must have been like during the roaring 20's in Paris. I'm a big fan of Burlesque and Josephine was a Queen. I'm also a big fan of anything vintage and nostalgic. This vignette has it all, the sights and the sounds, all with a vintage flair.

I don't usually support mesh bodies that have got nothing to do with Ruth2 or Roth2. But I've come across an improvement trick for Athena 6 with BoM that nobody seems to know.

The major problem is that the skin on Athena 6's limbs may look weird under certain viewer settings, much like a lighting bug. Some skin areas look brighter or darker than they should.

A minor problem is that alpha masks don't work on Athena 6 although they technically should with BoM.

The reason is because Athena 6 has a chaotic hodge-podge of alpha settings all over it. Parts are set to alpha masking, more parts are set to alpha blending (it's them which may look weird to you or to others), most have alpha off (this is why alpha masks don't work on Athena 6 out of the box).

The solution:

Step 1: Edit your Athena 6 body. All of it, not just any piece. Select it in your inventory while wearing it.

Step 2: Go to the Texture tab.

Step 3: Set the alpha mode to alpha masking.

Now the different shades of skin colour are gone, but your hands and feet may turn partially white. Don't panic, this is supposed to happen and will be fixed in the next steps.

Step 4: Set the mask cutoff to 128. If it is already 128, set it to 127 and back to 128.

The white should disappear, and your body should look normal again. Or better than what you saw previously.

Step 5: Take the body off and put it back on to save the new settings.

Also, you can now wear alpha masks like you can on the system body which might save you from the hassles that come with the alpha cuts on the HUD, and which you can save with outfits. The only limitation is that the alpha masks still don't work on fingernails and toenails.

Should alpha masks stop wearing, just edit the body and set the mask cutoff to 127 and back to 128.

The same method should work on Adonis 4 if you want to use alpha masks with BoM.

Oh, and before anyone tries this on Ruth2 v4 or Roth2 v2: You don't have to, at least not with the "BoM" bodies and Ruth2 v4 "Business". They've got alpha mode controls on the HUD. The "0.8.2.1" versions, on the other hand, are de-scripted and have no HUD, so they require this trick, too, if alpha masks don't work.
All good things...


One day in 2019 I packed my stuff, got my dog, put it all on my bike and went to spend the summer in another country. That was my routine after all. I took my trusty laptop, an old mac that was barely enough to browse internet and may be log in world for a couple of minutes.

I spent a great month and then corona happened.

Long story short: I got stuck in that country, that's ok though, as long as I have internet I don't have to be in a specific physical place so I could cope, in time I just decided to live permanently here.

Then about a month and a half ago my hard disk of my old laptop isekai'd itself, my main rig is still in another country and suddenly I was data-less. Since this disk was meant to just handle light tasks it never stood a chance against real production work.

That set me back immensely, and that's the reason why I haven't been able to produce any new object in two months, so in the meantime I've been showcasing you the stuff I've made until that point in time.

But, I've a finite amount of stuff to show you! Of course I've more in the shop, did you know I have a cook hat, a drunken bat, a full bathroom set; did you know you can drink coffee at the top of the shop or eat cake at the tower?; did you know every night I mix music but I don't tell anyone?

But, I don't think what I have left is interesting enough so my daily articles ends today, but fret not! The reconstruction of my data is nearly complete so from this point on I'll publish an article when I release a new product because... I can make new products again! Yay me.

So cheers and thank you so much all the people who consistently liked my articles and commented on them, thank you for the visiting and for enjoying the toys I make for this adult playground we enjoy every day.

See you on my next release.

At the end of a long day, it's a treat to gather around the fireplace with friends to swap stories. Maybe you'll stop by sometime and tell us yours?
