So, are there any good free ribbons to mark out submissive fuckable ponies?
>>
>>38754451
>that tank scene
holy shit my sides
>>
I'm making a dumb thing with AVsitter but one of the animations is way too long and not meant for furniture. It works okay until I switch to a different pose, at which point my pone moves to the new position but keeps doing the previous animation until it ends, before finally switching to the new one. It looks bad.

Is there a way to tell AVsitter "when a new pose is selected, instantly stop the previous animation"? Or at least to lower the length of the previous animation, turning it into a shorter loop?
>>
>>38754452
That ribbon system someone posted seems good. Something like:

>Green: shy/newbie, talk to me
>Pink: dtf
>White: sub, dtf
>Red: dom, dtf

Are there any good free ribbons or scrunchies?
>>
>>38754452
HMart Summer Dress has foreleg ribbonts for free, but that's the closest I could find with my limited experience.
>>
>>38754492
Guess we're turning into a BDSM group now not that I'm complaining, but something about this just feels like a step that can't be taken back

I like these colors in general. Though not sure if doms need to be marked, presumably they'll either seek out subs or they can just discuss it on a case by case basis. I guess there's no harm in having the option, though.

>your sexual identity
What even is that? Since when are sexual preferences an "identity"? Closest thing I can think of is sexual orientation but even megafags don't call it "identity". And this isn't even that, it's just about whether you get off to ordering other ponies to kneel and suck you off, or being the one that gets randomly being told to kneel and suck someone off and forced to obey.

If anyone makes their fetish their "identity" it's entirely their problem.

It's only lewd if you make it lewd. Bits are natural. It's more normal for a pony to have them out in the open than to try and hide them with clothing. We don't normally wear clothes, but we do love to accessorize!

>>
>>38755036
...but what comes after?
>>
>>38754856
The problem with being this submissive in sl seems to be that you need to be assertive to get people to actually fuck you. 90% of lewd interactions I've had, I've been the instigator of them, as much as I'd wish it otherwise. Too many subs in the group desu, as is typical. You gotta push them to be more dommy sometimes.
>>
>>38755045
That sounds painful.
>>
>>38755099
Huh, my local pizza place uses all these symbols.
I guess they just like horses a lot.

>>38755157
Subs are shy, who would have guessed?
Maybe we do need big signs for them to carry.
“PLEASE CUDDLE/FUG/COLLAR ME”
>>
>>38755157
>>38755179
Precisely, hence the entire idea of the ribbons
>>
>>38755179
The public cuddle pillows are a good start for shy poners. We just need a pillow thats "any pony sitting here is dtf" and we're good. But thats just what the public buck bed is isn't it?
>>
>>38755198
>But thats just what the public buck bed is isn't it?
For normal ponies, yes
But I hope you can understand the need that some have to just go about their day and have somepony walk up to them at any time and order them on the bed right now. Or give them a collar and order them in no uncertain terms to put it on.
Sitting on a bed to "invite" people really defeats a lot of the appeal behind that

Yes this is all extremely gay and degenerate but fuck it we're in SL and it's an open secret that there's already like a dozen collared ponies on the parcel so might as well embrace the degeneracy
>>
>>38755198
I think the public buckbed (and the public cuddle pillows, to a lesser extent) lack the intimacy these ponies need.
Besides, the public buckbed is mostly a meme at this point. I doubt many actual couples take it seriously.
>>
How about just setting your bits to "Wink" as a sign that your down?
That would be subtle.
>>
>>38755209
They still have to signal somehow that they are down for that to happen, in which case the ribbons would work. But maybe not use tail ribbons since several ponies already wear them as part of their outfits (me included). a simple unmistakable colored bracelet on a hind leg would be a lot better. I'd honestly try and make this myself but im away this week.
>>
>>38755240
A super simple leg bracelet can probably be made with a torus prim desu, would take 2 minutes to put together and send around in a notice.
That said people should be expected to inspect the object either way to make sure it's actually one of the objects made for this purpose and not an unrelated piece of clothing that happens to look similar.
>>
>>38755236
But that might be unfair to the mares that don't have bits. I'm sure there are some featureless mares that need love too.
>>
>>38755257
I think there are some people willing to just sponsor your bits in exchange for your purity.
I see how finding them might be a problem if you're very shy. If someone makes a band we can always do both.
>>
>>38754674
Depending on horse, 2 to 4.
>>38754856
Those posts are false.
>>
>>38755250
Yeah I was thinking a tube prim could work too. Just have to get agreed upon color system. A bright pink for being a complete subby slut probably?
>>
>>38755288
Honestly, thinking of it, does anything except "complete subby slut" really need signalling?
People who just want sex can either sit on the buckbed or talk to people and ask them out normally. People who are shy and want cuddles can go on the designated cushion. People who are dominant are gonna be the ones initiating things.

If so then the color doesn't matter. It could even be tintable to fit into different outfits/aesthetics and then when you see someone with a hoofband/bracelet you just need to check whether the object is called "I AM A HUGE SUBSERVIENT SLUT PLEASE MAKE ME DO WHATEVER YOU WANT" and you're good to go.
Can also drop an RLV locking script into it to be fancy

https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/LSL_Protocol/RestrainedLoveAPI
Basically to use RLV functions you send an llOwnerSay() and the message is your RLV API call.
So for example you'd do llOwnerSay("@detach=n") and that would prevent the user from unequipping the item with this script. A super simple way to do it would be to put in a touch_start event, you grab the llDetectedKey() of the guy touching the attachment, save it in a global variable, and lock the object. Then on subsequent touches you check if the toucher is the same person that locked it first, if it is do llOwnerSay("@detach=y") to unlock it.
A nicer system would use llDialogBox instead of triggering immediately on touch. Anyway if you know how to write scripts this should all be straightforward.

One fun thing could be to make it lock as soon as you attach it and anyone except you can unlock it. So you either gotta draw attention to it and ask for help, or wait till someone notices and approaches you
>>
>>38755496
Anon basically the entire thread so far is anons kvetching that they're not getting fucked and coming up with increasingly elaborate ways to get fucked
I think you literally don't need to do anything special if you don't want lewd. There's a very few players who might try to come on to you but literally all it takes is to say that you're not interested

Instead of this dumbass degeneracy colorcoding, why not just put it in your profile like every other person on SL. If you want to mash pissers with someone, you could at least do the courtesy of reading the information they give you instead of people getting approached for unknowingly wearing an accessory that gives the wrong idea. Or wear a hovertext if you absolutely have to fuck someone right now without any questions asked. If people are too shy to approach people directly, maybe a couple of pillows next to the buckbed for people looking for partners they want to talk to first would work?

2nd Life tab is your front page. It's the first introduction in a lot of cases, so just put a brief summary of you, or a meme, or whatever. A lot of people will put extra links like marketplace store etc. here, if they've got them.

Web tab is basically just a link. Most people don't use it for anything important. Again, I've seen marketplace stores and social media etc. here.

Picks are very useful. In theory it's a list of your "favourite locations", but in practice, it's a list of whatever you want. People will use them for funny quotes, sexual interests (f-list?), others who are dear to them, actual locations as intended, etc. Remember that when you make a pick, it records the place it was made, so be sure to change that -- or you might broadcast a place you don't want to be public.

I've never seen anyone use the interests tab as more than a joke, and I've never seen the classifies tab used for anything at all. 1st Life is basically just for memes and alternate profile pics, and only boomers used it as intended.

Notes is a section where others can write reminders about the profile owner. They are stored locally for each writer, visible only to them.

>whose definition of good RP is rote vanilla sex
If it's a clocktower/isle of rut/whatever inspired sim that's not possible.
Of course if it's a generic ERP or even generic BDSM sim I could believe that, but then generic BDSM sims are a dime a dozen and I'm pretty sure there's some for ponies too (didn't magik have a dedicated BDSM sim), so that's nothing special.

To be fair, I think most stallions are going to side with the second side on this topic.
Then again, maybe it's also the other way round because everything goes in SL.
>>
>>38758356
Stallions can be gentle though their huge genitals make them hormonal and irrational. Their emotional tendencies do make them excellent carers and they enjoy nothing more than tending to a home and providing for their big strong mare.
It's our job as mares in society to protect and guide these delicate yet turbulent stallions, though this would be clear to any pony who sees how the stallions fret over their butler outfits and delicate appearances while mares pioneer field trips and go to war. It's just the nature of popens as a species, never mind as a society.

On a scale of 1 to 5, how much do you relate with your popen and what happens to you in-game?

Well, unless you're narcissistic enough to find yourself hot, then it'd probably fall lower in the scale. But also it doesn't directly answer the question - does it feel like you're finding yourself hot, or does it feel like you just made a pony on your screen and that pony is hot? The latter would be like a 1 or a 2

do you mean like should you get into horse sex, or should you become a megawhore that sleeps with everypony?
if you think it's hot then go have sex. as for how many ponies you fuck that is entirely up to you my dude, we have everything from monogamous 100% faithful ponies to nymphomaniacs constantly working to increase their score count. it's really up to you my dude

>ERP is kinda cringe
honestly if it's in private between two people who are into it, then really just relax and enjoy it, it's only cringe if you think it's cringe
however not everyone is actually into ERP and the thing is in this game you can literally just watch the sex animations without saying anything, so you absolutely don't have to go "uwu nuzzles ur peepee" to have horse sex if you don't want to

Desperate for what? Friendship? Love? If you're always throwing yourself at everyone, you probably have at least a few friends, right?
Just talk to ponies. Deepen your connections. I feel like most would prefer a chat over sitting on a pillow/cushion tabbed out or otherwise doing nothing in particular. The sad truth is that if you stay on the sidelines, you'll remain there, unless someone magically guesses what you're thinking/feeling and approaches you.
>>
>>38759490
You gotta connect with people honestly, make friends individually. Just being noticeable in the group as a whole isn't always gonna give you any sort of personal connection.
I bet if you were to namedrop yourself right now (not asking you to, just as a hypothetical) I'd almost certainly recognise you as a prominent and valued member of the group. But if you never just sit down and chat with ponies then you might end up feeling like nobody is particularly your friend, even though you're friendly with the entire group as a whole.

Or I dunno I might be totally wrong, I'm also an extreme autist who has managed to coast by mostly on luck and having other ponies initiate friendship with me somehow so I may not be an authority on this at all.

A solid 4, I self-insert hard, BUT simultaneously am not bothered about what happens to me in the game. I don't care what happens as long as it's entertaining to watch, but I also very much am able to self-insert as my avatar and am very satisfied by the escapism it provides.
There's nothing wrong with going full 5, but just don't let it turn you into the fun ponice or something.
>>
>>38759540
If you want more personal connections and less surface level friendship, strike up a conversation via IM with a pony you're interested in. I'm pretty friendly with most ponies, but there's definitely a handful I consider closer friends. Most everypony in the group is cool. Pretty easy to make friends.

Yeah it's just for the raw land, though considering the saving you're going to make on not paying for premium you could just buy your own house model from the Marketplace, or live in a spaceship or a sex dungeon or whatever the fuck you like. You could even then save your whole home build to your inventory after you decide you don't want to pay for that parcel anymore for whatever reason and put it back up again somewhere else later.

The secret is that most people can actually fit everything they could want or need on the smallest possible parcel. /mlp/'s hangout in its entirety occupies a 350 land impact space and while it doesn't have a lot of room left it still has room to spare.
As long as you're smart with your prim usage and reserve rezzing/modding things to going to sandboxes that can handle you rezzing a whole mesh body or whatever you can easily survive on a 307 land impact parcel for L$210 a week.

If you're worried about community drama then you aren't forced to be exposed to it since there's several different communities within the larger ponysphere in SL catering to different tastes. Not only that but rarely does it ever start on such a scale that it somehow becomes everyone's problem.
/mlp/'s group is probably the most happening pony group in SL right now and a great way to get introduced to the game and other new people from 4chan who won't ban you from their place for saying the word faggot. At worst the thread might go to shit but it becomes clear how fake thread drama is when you're actually in the group in SL.
Meanwhile, places like Whinny Hollow and Moonshine Springs are way more focused on making everyone feel welcome and comfortable. Compared to /mlp/ they're hugboxes but if you can look past that they're usually too close-knit for any real drama to start.

Link all the pieces you want, ideally all rigged.

Check "Animated Mesh" in the Features tab. Pray you have the hundreds of LI necessary for this to work.
>>
>>38762667

>Pray you have the hundreds of LI necessary for this to work.
Wait fug what makes it cost so much? Is just creating an animesh gated behind a big payment, or does it depend on the complexity too somehow?
>>
>>38762668
Not L$, LI. As in, make sure the parcel has enough space. Animesh jacks up the LI of an item hugely, because LI is really just a way of limiting how much complex stuff you've got in one area, for server and client-side performance.

SL's prim limits is from the dark ages when they were still running it on their own shitty servers in the basement.
It's really time to up those numbers for every place together with user count limits per sim. They're on wildly scalable Amazon servers now. Apart from penny pinching there's no reason for those tight numbers anymore.
>>
>>38762912
imagine being able to rent a place for 300 lindens a week with 1000 prim and 1000 user limits...
>>
>>38762912
>Apart from penny pinching
And a sim costs like $230/month.
I am fairly certain they could drop their prices like 5x or 10x with zero issues.
Honestly I'd take being able to rent a decent chunk of land for at most the price of a DEDICATED physical server in a datacenter with an 8-thread xeon (or even a 12-thread ryzen), 64 gigs of ECC memory, 8tb of storage and an unmetered gigabit network. I'm pretty sure that should be able to run a full sim (or two or five of them), and how much does it cost? You, as an individual customer, can get one right now on-demand for 40-ish bucks a month. You bet an enterprise customer like LL buying in bulk would have a much, much better deal.

You could also offer sims at the current pricing with some vastly improved prim+user limits, but I think 90% of the time that's not really a bottleneck, and having the option to keep current limits but give actually realistic prices on them would be all I ask for.

Yeah obviously LL needs to make a profit and all that, but what does their company even fucking do anymore now that the game is essentially fully developed? Even at $40/month per sim (6x cheaper than right now) it would be an extreme overkill and they'd probably have like 50% profit margins. Plus the entire revenue for premium subscriptions (which costs them, like, nothing to actually maintain, it's pure revenue).
>>
>>38762968
>it's pure revenue
That means all of it just works!
>>
>>38762977
Buy more, save more!
>>
>>38762977
I'm not saying that's a bad thing. Like $12/month or whatever for a premium membership (which only gives virtual benefits and doesn't have server costs associated with it) is pretty standard.

Sims are the issue here. They're special because they require resources from the game, they're not just a virtual good, so they have to be priced accordingly - but here, "accordingly" should NOT mean 10x the actual underlying cost. It's like you rent the server space for a sim and then have to pay an extra $200 just as a membership fee. Per sim. THAT is not normal.

There are sorta regular in-game meetups with content creators and some LL stuff. The devs sound like literal boomers close too or not allowed to retire just yet and they ALWAYS sound like they just want to die.
So basically LL just keeps riding on the waves while their 70 years old devs must run around plugging holes in the ship.

This. SL is very core dependant on frames and notoriously runs like shit on multicore systems. You can have a high end graphics card and it wouldn't even matter.

It's fucking annoying that they have SLEPT for so fucking long until actual competition came up.

And would that really be a bad thing?
>>
>>38763816
Yea because nowhere else you can be as explicit as you can in public in SL and the only reason SL is like this is because it was made back when the internet gave zero shits about what people did so long as it wasn't pedo shit
>>
>>38763826
Okay, fair point.
>>
>>38763816
Yes because believe it or not, SL is still way more open for content creators than everything that came after it and apart from some absolute no gos they're also quite lax in terms what is allowed and what's not. So its charm is its roughness and weirdness.

Those new Memeverse competitors are streamlining everything from the start to become a clinically sterile space "welcoming" and "family friendly" for everyone while restricting what users can actually do. I wouldn't be surprised if most content will get created by big companies so everyone just consumes in that world.
>>
>>38763826
>>38763838
What about stuff like the other thingy Firestorm is compatible with? OpenSim, that's what it was.
From wikipedia's page:
>is an open-source server platform (License: BSD)
>OpenSim also uses an architecture known as "Hypergrid", which allows users to teleport between multiple OpenSim-based virtual worlds by providing a hyperlinked map which indexes public grids.[5] This allows for public grids to retain teleportation links to each other without having to be on the same grid.
AKA run your own server, with your own rules (like allowing saying nigger) AND with your own server costs (i.e. pay like $20/month for a large sim/set of sims rather than $250/month for a tiny goyplot), while still being connected to the wider world.

Obviously shit like Meta(r)'s Metaverse(tm) is total garbage but I think the audience overlap between than and SL is practically nil.
>>
>>38763772
They should be focusing on a renderer that actually uses more than one core instead of adding in new features that most of the userbase will have off anyway because it'll tank their already abysmal FPS by half due to the garbage engine.

Land impact is determined by the highest of three values: download weight, physics weight, and server weight. Download weight is just the complexity of the model; physics weight is the complexity of the collision box; server weight is related to how many scripts are in the object (and is rarely relevant to LI).

In that window (click "more info" next to the LI), you can see that the physics weight is the dominant one. That's because it's calculating physics for the entire linkset. What you'd do is link the whole thing to a prim or a simple cube, using that simple object as the root. Then, in the physics dropdown, you'd set the physics of the linkset to "none". The root would keep prim or convex hull physics, since the root must always have physics of some kind, but the rest of the linkset would be totally ignored for physics calculations. That lowers the physics weight to almost nothing, as you can see in pic related.

I'm pretty sure they're working at moving SL over to Vulkan because SL's been running on some painfully old version of Open GL that recently was announced to be unsupported on apple devices. Since a lot of SL's user base are the specific kind of retard who buy Macbooks because the UI is curvier and they fell for the "Macbooks are perfect for creatives" meme LL are probably working on it as we speak.

No clue. Tranny talk has mercifully been rare so far, or at least I have seen none of it outside of the '/mlp/ jannies are trannies' cube. Only some complaining about niggers, normalfags, and furries. The furry part has brought some contention in the thread, but I think everyone can at least agree that normies and niggers are bad.
There is equal parts shitposting, fun, and wholesome, cute maremaremare moments.

are the walk cycles, poses, sit positions etc. things you can mod or is it all in game set

If you're talking about popens then yes, provided you know what you're doing.
If you're talking about the buckbed, I have no idea.

Making new popen animations (or a good looking bed model) is the hard part. Making it all fit together or modding the bed is not hard.

Very very few popens actually do that. Popens do have sex with each other periodically but the majority of the time it's basically the
>bro, let's commission porn of our OCs fucking and get boners together
meme, except instead of commissioning porn you get unlimited free 3D porn that you can control and influence in real time.

Even making a decent bed isn't that hard, if you keep it simple and stylised.

Alright, that's undeniable proof that gayra is no longer pure. Not just some funny pose haha but photographic evidence of horsecock in mouth.
Also how these stocks seem to work bloody well, there's no way they are actually OP stocks are they?

That pose works well but the licking one glitches pretty hard.

They're pillories. Stocks only hold the feet, pillories hold the neck and arms.

They're made for the Magik pony so the animations derp pretty hard anytime there's facial things going on. The skeleton's close, but it's not the exact same as the openpopen.

>>38766416
animations are made in Blender with a plugin called Avastar.

You can basically mod anything in SL provided that it isn't "no mod." (Some niggers sell things that they don't want people to fuck with, it gets them hard to have that much control)

You can tear the animations out of the buckbed and stick them in a helicopter, a table, or a t-shirt if you know what the hell you're doing.

As far as modding goes, some people sell animations for the OP that you can buy and stick into your AO for more walks / sits / etc. They usually come with instructions because even people that have been around SL for ten years struggle to get their shit together at times.
