I love my friends and spend my online time Satyr farming, building and bulldozing.....and most importantly with Serina!


An ancient wall is before you, constructed from large limestone blocks. The centuries have left their mark, etching deep pits and cracks into the stone. The surface is now a dark, almost blackened hue, the result of countless years of exposure to the elements. Despite the wall's somber and worn appearance, a single ray of light pierces through the gloom, casting a gentle, golden glow on a small section of the stone. This touch of light brings out the subtle textures and details in the limestone, revealing hints of its original, pale color. The contrast between the illuminated area and the surrounding darkness emphasizes the wall's age and the stories it holds within its weathered stones.

Textures............. they tell the story for you..

Pictured above......typical product from Friends mall

I have tried to tell people that our mall is a little different; but tonight I want to show you one of our best selling products - the amazing horses from my friend Roland Francis.

Most of you know about Roland and his horses....but I am going to brag anyways. I used to raise horses in SL. You dont even want to know how much I spent on food.....and then the horses were not naturally grazing. If you found ones that were...you could not ride them. I have tried every horse I found in Second Life and Opensim, and I honestly believe Roland's horses offer the best ride and most realistic animations.

So....you might ask...what does this have to do with a mall? We are honored to be able to offer Rolands horses to you here at Friends Mall and I have built a special path to let you try them. Ride over the mountains...past the pond...and the long oceanside trail....and I am sure you will fall in love with these horses.

Go to the Equitacion Store at Friends Mall.

Then walk out the back of the store to take a horse for a ride. When you arrive back at the building, you can get your own horse rezzer......it is called HHorse rezzer v2.0 and is inside the stable building at the Mall.

These horses are wonderful! Thank you Roland!

Teleporting Issues?

I just became aware of a major flaw with firestorm and the solution that is on the Firestorm download page. I have been unable to TP unless I relog for last 3 days. After much research I realized this was a Firestorm SLURL issue.

Go to the firestorm download page and you will see the above information.

I have not changed my viewer settings or added any new viewers; but it appears some upgrade (probably windows) caused the SLURL function in Firestorm to no longer work properly.

As I follow up....I am teleporting perfectly now after installing this.

I am encosing the notes from firestorm :

What is this ?
SLURL Proxy is an application that will handle SLURLs on your Windows system. Clicking a SLURL on the web,
will open SLURL proxy, which will forward the SLURL to the viewer you have chosen.

Why is that interesting ?
Various Second Life viewers you might, or may already have installed, modify the way SLURLs are handled on your system,
and often cause problems when you uninstall certain viewers.

SLURL Proxy provides a user friendly way to correct this.

Upon start up, SLURL Proxy will check to see if it's the default SLURL handler.
If it is not, it will inform you about that, and ask you if you'd like to use SLURL Proxy as default instead.

When you have set SLURL Proxy as default,(or even before that) you can simply drag one or more viewer shortcuts onto the application window,
and they should be listed with viewer name, and icon.

SLURL Proxy allows you to add several viewers, and one always needs to be the default viewer to use.
The default viewer is the one where the checkbox is checked.
If you would like to change the default viewer, simply click the viewer of your choice in the list.

That's it.

If you wish to set a viewer as default SLURL handler instead of SLURL proxy, then you simply need to click
Set other SLURL handler in the menu, and drag the shortcut of your favourite viewer onto the window.

Requires .NET 3.5 and only runs on Windows

Textures play a crucial role in conveying emotions in Opensim by adding depth, realism, and atmosphere to the digital environment. Here's how they achieve this:

Visual Representation: Textures provide visual cues that evoke specific emotions. For example, rough, jagged textures might evoke feelings of danger or discomfort, while smooth, soft textures might evoke feelings of calmness or safety. By carefully selecting textures, designers can create environments that align with the desired emotional tone.

Color Psychology: Textures are often accompanied by colors, and different colors are known to evoke different emotional responses. Warm colors like reds, oranges, and yellows can evoke feelings of excitement or passion, while cool colors like blues and greens can evoke feelings of calmness or sadness. Texture artists can use color psychology in conjunction with textures to enhance emotional impact.

Immersive Experience: High-quality textures can enhance immersion by making the virtual environment feel more realistic. When users feel like they are interacting with a lifelike world, they are more likely to become emotionally engaged with the experience. For example, a beautifully textured forest scene with sunlight filtering through the trees can evoke feelings of awe and wonder.

Association and Memory: Textures can evoke emotions through association with real-world experiences. For example, the texture of a cozy, well-worn sweater might evoke feelings of comfort and nostalgia, while the texture of rusted metal might evoke feelings of decay or abandonment. By leveraging these associations, designers can evoke specific emotional responses in users.

Narrative Support: Textures can support the narrative of a virtual world by reinforcing its themes and motifs. For example, a dystopian cityscape might feature textures that convey decay, oppression, and despair, aligning with the narrative's themes. By immersing users in a visually cohesive environment, textures can enhance emotional storytelling.

User Interaction: Textures can influence how users interact with virtual objects and environments, which in turn can evoke emotions. For example, a rough texture might make a virtual object feel challenging to touch, evoking feelings of frustration or determination, while a soft texture might make it feel comforting and inviting.

By carefully selecting and designing textures, creators can evoke specific emotional responses in users, enhancing the overall experience of Opensim.

that little store everyone is talking about

Recently I have had a number of people requesting that I allow child avatars at friends-grid and I want to discuss this openly and honestly.

It is not my place to try and push my morals and values upon others....however, as a grid owner, it is my place to learn the laws of every country involved. In this situation, I need to understand the Child pornography laws of not only where our servers are located, but I also had to research and learn the laws of every country we have residents and guests from. We currently have residents from 30 countries and guests from another 35. People who say "laws dont apply " are incorrect on this subject. You may have servers in one country.....but all the laws of your resident's countries come into play also.

A good thing to remember is that because you have gotten away with something for 10 years does not make it legal. You may never get caught....and then again.....somebody with a grudge may turn you in.

I want to point out a recent post by Jerralyn Franzic . Jerralyn showed the cutest childs outfit ever! ....and she also made the wisest statement ...."I don't understand the hatred towards child avis in Open Sim. Sure, they shouldn't engage in adult activities and maybe not hang in Adult sims but otherwise, what's the problem?" Personally I would love to see kids riding ponies at my farm....and having fun being mermaids. If everyone in child avi were to abide by Jerralyn's statement, there would not be an issue.

However, lets talk about reality. Not all child avis are simply riding ponies and playing in the water. The simple truth is that many (not all) of these child avis are having sex. Some grids use this to boost their traffic. In some countries, including US, the graphic illustration of a child online having sex is 100% illegal. You see, it does not matter if the person behind the computer is 12 or 52......the visual computer generated depiction of a child (child avatar) involved in sex is very illegal in a number of countries. 18 U.S.C. § 2252 Many people will say their countries are different....and this is stupid. I did not make laws........but I need to abide by them. Before people jump on this and criticize me ....I would suggest you read the laws of your country....your servers country...and the laws of all your residents or guests. There are many misinformed people on this subject. I am not saying the laws are right or wrong......but learn the laws.....then comment. You need to learn laws for your servers country...and all your guests countries. This post is not about morals......it is about laws....of all the countries involved.

I have spent over 200 hours reading international laws. Some countries allow things that others do not. However, you have to consider all the laws because of guests.


In closing....do I hate kids and kids avis......nooooooo. I would love to be able to allow them to come to friends grid. However, this is a less than perfect world in which we live, and I have to look at the potential liability of allowing those child avis. Because of that, Child avis are not allowed on friends-grid......no exceptions! I am sad....because there are some wonderful people in kids avis that I do not get to have visit.

Friends-grid is an Adult community and we are looking for adults, with adult avi's who want to make this their main opensim home.
