What’s Changing With The Second Life TOS Update?

This is something I’ve seen a fair amount of buzz over so I’d like to cover it for you guys even though it’s not directly avatar related. Second Life’s TOS (Terms of Service) has been updated and goes into effect July 31, 2017. As of this weekend you cannot log in without accepting the new agreement. So what does that mean for you? Probably not too much. I highly doubt this will change the way most of you use Second Life. Due to the nature of the content this is a very text heavy post.

What’s Changing?

Linden Lab stated in their announcement, “We’ve restructured the Terms of Service to contain terms and conditions that apply to all Linden Lab products, and we have separated out product-specific references (such as Linden Dollar and LindeX for SL) into product-specific policies. The new Second Life Terms and Conditions contains all the Second Life-specific references that were previously in the Terms of Service.”

Most of the changes appear to be tidying up the document and clarifying things. For example the content covered in the old Infringement Notifications section was split up throughout the document a bit differently. There are some changes, however, that are still likely to stick out when looking it over. Though they may look scary (as policy changes often do) they really aren’t anything to worry about.

Mesh Crash Course: Troubleshooting Issues

Need more mesh help or info? Check out our full Mesh Crash Course.

Sometimes things just don’t go as expected when using mesh heads and bodies in Second Life. Here are some of the most common issues:

  1. Skin, makeup or tattoos don’t apply
  2. Skin, makeup or tattoos appear distorted
  3. Eyelashes are clumpy
  4. Skin, makeup, or tattoos are shiny
  5. Makeup or tattoos are faded
  6. Old body parts show through the new mesh body parts
  7. And many, many more…

While all of these things can be very frustrating, thankfully they are usually an easy fix!

Appliers

Some of the most common problems come from trying to use appliers. If you’re not familiar with them make sure to check out our in depth post on how appliers work.

If you’re finding that skin, makeup, or tattoos aren’t showing up at all it can be a few different things. First you’ll want to make sure you’re using the correct appliers. A Catwa applier, for example, won’t apply to a Lelutka head. If you’re using Omega appliers (the “universal” applier) make sure you also have your Omega System Relay Kits on. You may have to click the relays to activate them. For more information on ensuring you have the right applier and how to use appliers please check out Appliers: How Do They Work?

Linden Lab’s Newest Starter Avatars (Part 2)

Linden Lab released eight new starter avatars earlier this month, six of which come with bento parts. Anyone can use these, simply select the “Choose an avatar” option in your viewer. Note: If you already have an avatar you love save it to your wardrobe before changing! You can do this is the appearance tab of your viewer.

Yesterday I showed off the first four (Angels & Demons) and today you’ll get to see the next four (Renaissance & Mystic Heroes). The Renaissance avatars actually come with bento horses which is a fun change for starters. The heroes have adorable little imp pets, too!
