Bakes on Mesh Tutorial



Bailey on Mesh
A date for your diary,  Monday October 21st, at 1pm SL (9pm UK)

London Support guru Elise Banx will be holding a tutorial for Bakes on Mesh.

If you would like to try out the tips and tricks during the class, you will need to have updated your viewer to support BoM.

The latest versions of Linden Lab Second Life ViewerFirestorm and Singularity all support BoM.

If you are using a mesh body, you will also need to collect the Bakes on Mesh version from a re-delivery or update terminal.

Elise will show us all how to apply layer style clothing and skins and offer other tips including how this new feature helps for a better experience for all by lowering Avatar Complexity.

Confused?  You won't be, after the Elise Banx Bakes on Mesh Tutorial.   It is being held in the London City Sandbox located here:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City%20West/188/149/23

Singularity Viewer Bakes on Mesh





Singularity Viewer is now bang up to date with all the latest offerings!
As of yesterday Bakes on Mesh is now included.  (Roughly speaking.. BoM is essentially an updated version of layer style clothing, which allows it to be worn on mesh bodies).

To download the latest build head to Singularity and Alchemy site and then click on the link at the bottom where it says Singularity Installer for Windows.

For those of you who have been using the test versions of Singularity, they have come to an end as the new nightly builds take over, to keep the viewer up to date.   This allows you to dip in at any time and grab the latest version and apply it.

If you are jumping across from the "test" builds and wish to preserve your settings,  you will need to copy the settings file across.  Here's how to do it.

To Open Command Prompt:  WindowsKey + R, then type CMD and press enter.

Now copy and paste these commands one line at a time..

cd  %appdata%\secondlife\user_settings     (Press Enter)

copy settings_singularitytest.xml settings_singularityalpha.xml  (Press Enter)

All done, you have copied your settings for the new Singularity.
One you are happy with the new installation, you can uninstall the old Singularity Test viewer.


London City is the official home of the Singularity store.  If you would like to support the project or get more information and tips and tricks, visit the store here:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/189/196/24

For user to user help, you can join the inworld group:  on the top of the viewer click Help, then Singularity group.

Firestorm releases BoM update



Firestorm viewer has today launched their Bakes on Mesh update.

There is a lot of information available on it if you care to wade through the BoM discussion on the Second Life Forums but in a nutshell:    Bakes on Mesh is a new feature to allow system avatar baked textures to be shown on mesh attachments.

Here I am with my gorgeous male model, Mr Billy Arentire, who is setting up his body to accommodate this new feature.   It's early in our morning and my model is still a bit grumpy and swearing at it a lot.   This is a good sign however, it shows his determination in getting it right!

Have fun, and if you see Mr Arentire wandering around looking confused, dressed in a blue top and yellow trousers, don't laugh at him.  Well, not to his face anyway.

You can download and upgrade your Firestorm viewer for the new Bakes on Mesh, here: https://www.firestormviewer.org/downloads/
