I’ve been missing for a while since my last post here. To be honest I’m much like some others here - more of a 3d artist or asset creator than a programmer /coder /developer. Much of what we talked about here - @Judas - @Menithal et al, admittedly was over my head and too difficult to understand at the time.
I have been busy since supplying a business in SL with rigged/skinned assets and trying to make some extra pocket money but the myriad bodies and lack of developer kit generosity is causing too much weight painting for various different shapes - fitted mesh for 5 different popular bodies with avastar per item - means all rigging and no play makes Archie Stanton a dull boy. and I have kinda backed away from it all for time being.
I have also delved into web development a little and bought a domain and began putting a website together. I have delved into the realms of grabbing and using custom CSS and accessing my domain folders with filezilla etc. Stuff which to me was a foreign language a few months ago. I feel this will prove handy.
I’d Just like to say HI again, and show you the stuff I beeen making in my absence. please ignore home page - i had some tech issues/conflicts with a plugin and only fixed it 2 days back. Otherwise it’s starting to come together.
It is still my aim to bring some fine avatars to hifi, the womans face I just made should give you some idea of the quality I’m aiming for - she’s not finished and has no hair yet but you guy’s should get the feel for where she’s going now should you care too look under NEW in the navbar.
I’ll be browsing about the forums to catch up and see whats happened. I have one question - does my long absence mean I have forfeited my little plot on earth ?
I’d like to get in and start doing something there soon if it hasn’t been passed on [I hope not!]
I still have no idea which webcam to buy to be able to have it map my movements to the avatar - any reccomends ?
