Category: Blogger’s Challenge

In Deep Thoughts….

I once heard of the following….

There is always going to be “the” year for everyone.  The happiest year, the saddest year, the funniest year, the busiest year, the luckiest year, the craziest year, etc, etc, etc.  This is definitely one of the most challenging year for me but the same time also an exciting year for me with lots of traveling and family plans.  So is it the craziest year for me?  I guess not but definitely a year with lots of thinking to do….

What year is it for you?

My apologies in making the announcement late.  I’m still catching up with my blogging and all the recent events are not helping. 😛 Having said that, we have our winner this month!

In case you forgot, The “Name Your SL Age” blogger challenge is still running and we are now into our third month.  Every month, on the 21st, I will pick a winner from the monthly submission and at the end of the 12th month, I will pick a grand prize and a second prize winners where the prizes will involve lindens and shopping points sponsored by designers and shopping mall.

Teach Me Something Meme

Still living in the world without shadows, I thought I will make myself useful by sharing a trick that you may not know.  This is for one of the Meme challenges run by Strawberry Singh.  I called mine a trick and not talent because it really doesn’t require special skills to do this.

If you haven’t been following my Meme posts, you can read the rest of them and find out more here!

Also, accompanying this post, I did a styling too.  Just in case you already knew the trick I am going to share, at least you will still learn something new (releases in fashion) from my post. 😛

Split Skirt + BSD + Emery + 7DS_006 1048

How often, when you are out and about on the grids, do you check what others are wearing and wonder where you can find that cool pair of boots or belt or hat? Or thinking who made that lovely hair or set of jewelries this model on the runway is using?

….but you are too shy to ask a stranger for the landmark…and when you finally summoned up the courage to open an IM, you realized there is language barrier that you are stuck in the IM trying to figure out how to explain what you want.

What can you do to find out where the items are from without having to go through those embarrassing moments?

There is an “Inspect” feature that you could use to check the non rigged objects someone is wearing, and from there you could find out who the creators are for those items which most time will help you trace and find the landmarks to their stores.

Here are some pictorial guides that show you how to inspect an object someone is wearing.  Do note that guides are based on Firestorm viewer V4.4.03.

I strongly suggest that before you start inspecting someone, turn off your “Lookat Target Hints” (Preferences -> Privacy -> Lookat) and Particle Beams (Preferences -> Firestorm -> Uncheck Selection Beams)  so when you are inspecting an object someone’s wearing, you do it without interrupting them.  Also, for this to work, you need to make sure the avatar is on the same sim as you.

To inspect a non-rigged object someone is wearing……

Firstly, right click on the object you would like to inspect, in this case I am going to inspect the black shoes this avatar is wearing….

shoes 1

A pie menu will appear, click on “More”…

shoes 2

Another pie menu will open and this time click on “Inspect”…

shoes 3

Now, a table will appear like the one shown in the picture below.   On the bottom of the table, you will find two options to either see the owner or the creator’s profile.  Click on “See Creator’s Profile…”.

shoes 4

…..and tada! You will see the creator’s profile, where very likely you will be able to find the landmark to the store under the Picks and/or Classified.

shoes 5

Bear in mind, this trick only applies to non-rigged objects. 🙂  It’s not a perfect solution but it helped me find 90% of the items I inspected. 😛

There will be times you might end up seeing something that you suspect is a copybotted item.  If unsure, I suggest that instead of teleporting from the landmark you found on the creator’s profile, do a search of the store under “Places” and teleport to the original store from there.

I hope you will find the “Inspect” feature useful.  Let me know what you think! 🙂

Have a nice weekend everyone! ❤
