[2010/01/24 16:10] Baroun Tardis grins
[2010/01/24 16:10] Cursa Charisma: Well, let's begin
[2010/01/24 16:10] Cursa Charisma: Welcome to the Nexus, everyone
[2010/01/24 16:10] Cursa Charisma: Today's discussion will be on avatar height in SL RP

[2010/01/24 16:11] Reiko Soyinka grins
[2010/01/24 16:11] Baroun Tardis: Oooh! Demonstrations!
[2010/01/24 16:11] Baroun Tardis grins
[2010/01/24 16:11] Cody Winterwolf: Cool.
[2010/01/24 16:11] Baroun Tardis: Well...
[2010/01/24 16:12] Cursa Charisma: OK, Poca, if you'd like to come over here with me, we can do the first part of the demo
[2010/01/24 16:12] Cursa Charisma: OK everyone, let's go around and ask each of you...
[2010/01/24 16:12] Cursa Charisma: How tall (in feet or meters) is Poca, and how tall is Cursa?
[2010/01/24 16:12] Cursa Charisma: Anastasia, you first
[2010/01/24 16:13] Anastasia Horngold: Well, I think I already know the approximate answer--insider information
[2010/01/24 16:13] Cursa Charisma: Ah
[2010/01/24 16:13] Anastasia Horngold: So I could wait...
[2010/01/24 16:13] Cursa Charisma: Well, how about looking and trying to make a "fresh" guess? OK, let's start with Reiko then
[2010/01/24 16:13] Reiko Soyinka: 5'5" and 7'8"
[2010/01/24 16:13] Baroun Tardis: lol
[2010/01/24 16:14] Cursa Charisma: Thank you, Reiko. I think many, if not most people in SL would make similar estimates
[2010/01/24 16:14] Cursa Charisma: Baroun, your turn, hehe
[2010/01/24 16:14] Baroun Tardis: I'd say you're just shy of six foot, and she's pushing nine
[2010/01/24 16:14] Cursa Charisma nods
[2010/01/24 16:14] Cursa Charisma: OK
[2010/01/24 16:14] Cursa Charisma: Cody?
[2010/01/24 16:14] Cody Winterwolf: I have to say 6' and about 8'
[2010/01/24 16:14] Pocahontas Bigboots stands up on her tips toes
[2010/01/24 16:15] Baroun Tardis chuckles
[2010/01/24 16:15] Cursa Charisma: Notice how men try to anticipate the "trick", hehe?
[2010/01/24 16:15] Cody Winterwolf: Hehehehe
[2010/01/24 16:15] Cursa Charisma: So, Anastasia, what does your inside info tell you?
[2010/01/24 16:15] Anastasia Horngold: I'd heard that Cursa was about 6', so I would have guessed about 9 for Poca
[2010/01/24 16:16] Cursa Charisma: OK, full disclosure: the last time you saw Cursa, he was a different height from now
[2010/01/24 16:16] Cursa Charisma: Explanation later if anyone cares
[2010/01/24 16:16] Anastasia Horngold slaps herself on the forehead.
[2010/01/24 16:16] Cody Winterwolf: Hehehehe
[2010/01/24 16:17] Cursa Charisma: So take a fresh look, Anastasia
[2010/01/24 16:17] Cursa Charisma grins
[2010/01/24 16:17] Pocahontas Bigboots rest her hand on Cursas head
[2010/01/24 16:17] Cody Winterwolf chuckles as Poka does that.
[2010/01/24 16:17] Baroun Tardis whispers, "... will call him mini-cursa..."
[2010/01/24 16:17] Cursa Charisma tries to control his eyes flicking directly to his left at Poca's... torso
[2010/01/24 16:18] Anastasia Horngold: It's really hard. Cursa still looks "short" but it's in the context of being next to someone much taller. Context is always the issue.
[2010/01/24 16:18] Cursa Charisma: Yes!
[2010/01/24 16:18] Cursa Charisma: That will be good to discuss later
[2010/01/24 16:18] Cursa Charisma: Take a stab for now
[2010/01/24 16:18] Cursa Charisma grins
[2010/01/24 16:19] Anastasia Horngold tries to rez a prim for reference and fails.
[2010/01/24 16:19] Cursa Charisma: Just a wild guess, and we'll go verify
[2010/01/24 16:19] Cursa Charisma winks
[2010/01/24 16:19] Anastasia Horngold: nope, can't guess
[2010/01/24 16:20] Anastasia Horngold: It's all relative
[2010/01/24 16:20] Cursa Charisma: OK
[2010/01/24 16:20] Cursa Charisma: Let's go compare to something absolute
[2010/01/24 16:20] Pocahontas Bigboots gave you Snapshot : Falcons Landing and RP Nexus, Mul (63, 218, 1002).
[2010/01/24 16:20] Cody Winterwolf: Ok.
[2010/01/24 16:20] Cursa Charisma: Behind us here you see some prims
[2010/01/24 16:21] Cursa Charisma: They are exactly the length indicated by the floating text above them
[2010/01/24 16:21] Cursa Charisma: Lengths*
[2010/01/24 16:21] Reiko Soyinka: Now, that is cool!
[2010/01/24 16:21] Baroun Tardis: yeah, it's a nice display
[2010/01/24 16:21] Cursa Charisma: This cylinder behind me, when touched, will report in text on the "prim height" of the avatar touching it
[2010/01/24 16:22] Height Detector (Accurate) - Prim Height: Anastasia Horngold is 2.083516 m (6 ft. 10in.) tall. (counting shoes) - Prim Height
[2010/01/24 16:22] Cody Winterwolf: Wow...
[2010/01/24 16:22] Cursa Charisma: If you or your camera is close enough to read the floating text, you can see how tall Poca and Cursa actually are
[2010/01/24 16:22] Cursa Charisma: Please come on over and compare your av to the measuring sticks
[2010/01/24 16:23] Reiko Soyinka: Wow Poca, my Na'vi would dwarf yours.
[2010/01/24 16:23] Baroun Tardis: All of us?

[2010/01/24 16:32] Anastasia Horngold: OK, now I'm down to "0" height and am 5"9
[2010/01/24 16:32] Pocahontas Bigboots: wish i could stay... but the people need me:P
[2010/01/24 16:32] Pocahontas Bigboots: o-s-da sv-no-i (Good night)
[2010/01/24 16:32] Reiko Soyinka bows to the genius who is Allen.
[2010/01/24 16:32] Cursa Charisma: Qapla!
[2010/01/24 16:32] Allen Kerensky:
[2010/01/24 16:32] Cursa Charisma: Alright, Baroun, over to you
[2010/01/24 16:32] Top Room Sensor v1.02: Pocahontas Bigboots no longer detected in range of Top Room Sensor 2.
[2010/01/24 16:32] Allen Kerensky: hellos
[2010/01/24 16:32] Baroun Tardis waves to the crowd
[2010/01/24 16:32] Cody Winterwolf: Howdy
[2010/01/24 16:33] Baroun Tardis: Down here!
[2010/01/24 16:33] Baroun Tardis laughs
[2010/01/24 16:33] No room to sit here, try another spot.
[2010/01/24 16:33] Kontessa Frostbite thinks of Baroun's favorite quote about hieght and giggles softly to herself
[2010/01/24 16:33] Baroun Tardis: I'm one of those funny people with a strong personal self-image of my body -- so when I made Baroun, I worked very hard to make him look like RL me
[2010/01/24 16:33] Baroun Tardis shrugs
[2010/01/24 16:33] Baroun Tardis: more comfortable that way
[2010/01/24 16:34] Baroun Tardis: and very handly when I've met SL folks RL - they recognize me right away
[2010/01/24 16:34] Kontessa Frostbite nods and he is compgy
[2010/01/24 16:34] Kontessa Frostbite: comfy even
[2010/01/24 16:34] Baroun Tardis: although, I gotta say, if Poca looks like that RL, she's got me beat for "ease of recognition"
[2010/01/24 16:34] Cursa Charisma grins
[2010/01/24 16:34] Cody Winterwolf: Hehehe
[2010/01/24 16:34] Baroun Tardis: My SL RP time cycles between Sci-Fi and Gor...
[2010/01/24 16:35] Baroun Tardis: Which has created some unusual sityuations
[2010/01/24 16:35] Top Room Sensor v1.02: Odile Mistwood has entered detection range of Top Room Sensor 2.
[2010/01/24 16:35] Cursa Charisma: Welcome, Odile
[2010/01/24 16:35] Baroun Tardis: Cursa mentioned the older "how tal is your Av" is 7 inches off
[2010/01/24 16:35] Cody Winterwolf: Hey there
[2010/01/24 16:35] Baroun Tardis: So I _thought_ I was 5'9"...
[2010/01/24 16:35] Baroun Tardis: and built spacecraft appropriately
[2010/01/24 16:35] Kontessa Frostbite grins
[2010/01/24 16:35] Reiko Soyinka: hehehehe
[2010/01/24 16:35] Baroun Tardis: During SBA's "Iron Shipbuilder" competition - the judges could not get throught the door of the shuttle I built
[2010/01/24 16:35] Allen Kerensky grins remember Teetop complaining about fitting in the Highport airlock
[2010/01/24 16:35] Baroun Tardis looks very embarassed
[2010/01/24 16:36] Cody Winterwolf: Hahaha
[2010/01/24 16:36] Baroun Tardis: Digitgrade legs on a huge canid alien the dude was GI-NOR-MOUS!
[2010/01/24 16:36] Allen Kerensky: did you add a "low bridge" sign over the shuttle lock?
[2010/01/24 16:36] Baroun Tardis: Should have - but I built it with 6'5" clearance
[2010/01/24 16:36] Baroun Tardis: which is more than a real space shuttle
[2010/01/24 16:36] Allen Kerensky: honestly, spacecraft and military vehicles are made for horse jockeys
[2010/01/24 16:37] Baroun Tardis nods to Allen,"And I tend to build realisitc"
[2010/01/24 16:37] Baroun Tardis sighs
[2010/01/24 16:37] Cursa Charisma: Where g forces are relevant, short is good
[2010/01/24 16:37] Allen Kerensky: the cockpit of the Apache AH-64 helicopter is narrower than my shoulders
[2010/01/24 16:37] Baroun Tardis: One thing I've noticed about the big fokls in Sci-Fi -- they like big battle armor, big guns, big energy shields, and huge deployable wings or cyber body parts
[2010/01/24 16:38] Allen Kerensky: the Final Fantasy Effect
[2010/01/24 16:38] Cursa Charisma nods
[2010/01/24 16:38] Cody Winterwolf: Yep
[2010/01/24 16:38] Reiko Soyinka: Japanese anime effect.
[2010/01/24 16:38] Allen Kerensky: my sword is ONLY 14-feet long?
[2010/01/24 16:38] Cursa Charisma nods
[2010/01/24 16:38] Baroun Tardis: This makes them _very_ different from many of the Goreans , who prefer big bugling pectorals, big swords, big hairdo and huge studded leather bracers
[2010/01/24 16:38] Cursa Charisma smiles broadly
[2010/01/24 16:38] Allen Kerensky: Conan Syndrome
[2010/01/24 16:38] Kontessa Frostbite perfers her "swords" to be easier to wear
[2010/01/24 16:39] Baroun Tardis coughs at Kontessa's comment
[2010/01/24 16:39] Reiko Soyinka almost snorts her tea.
[2010/01/24 16:39] Kontessa Frostbite smirks at Baroun
[2010/01/24 16:39] Cursa Charisma: "What is best in life?"
[2010/01/24 16:39] Baroun Tardis: Yes, very much the Conan Syndrome, or the Schwartznegger Syndrom
[2010/01/24 16:39] Cody Winterwolf: Yeah.
[2010/01/24 16:40] Baroun Tardis: This is not limited to the male of the species....
[2010/01/24 16:40] Cursa Charisma smiles broadly
[2010/01/24 16:40] Baroun Tardis: I've run into 8' tall warrior women
[2010/01/24 16:40] Cody Winterwolf nods.
[2010/01/24 16:40] Allen Kerensky: who all turned blue this month
[2010/01/24 16:40] Cursa Charisma: Who hasn't?
[2010/01/24 16:40] Cursa Charisma laughs
[2010/01/24 16:40] Reiko Soyinka: How many of them were played by actual women?
[2010/01/24 16:40] Cursa Charisma: Nice Allen
[2010/01/24 16:40] Anastasia Horngold: lol allen
[2010/01/24 16:40] Cody Winterwolf: Ok... Looking strait into cleavage isn't too bad.
[2010/01/24 16:40] Odile Mistwood: I take photos of them. I have a file called Amazonic Strippers.
[2010/01/24 16:40] Cursa Charisma: Nice, Odile!
[2010/01/24 16:40] Baroun Tardis: and many of the furries are huge as well, even when the species in question is supposed to be small... I remain confused at the concept of 7 foot tall anthro-gerbils
[2010/01/24 16:40] Cursa Charisma: I think Cody wants a copy of that
[2010/01/24 16:40] Allen Kerensky: link?
[2010/01/24 16:40] Cody Winterwolf: Hahahahahah
[2010/01/24 16:40] Cursa Charisma winks
[2010/01/24 16:41] Baroun Tardis: Odie - that commment is useless without sharing
[2010/01/24 16:41] Baroun Tardis laugsh
[2010/01/24 16:41] Kontessa Frostbite nods sagely and says in a asde to Oldie "He perfers 8 feet tall exotic dancs to Warriors however"
[2010/01/24 16:41] Allen Kerensky: i remain confused at the gerbil part - all the rest isn't even gotten to
[2010/01/24 16:41] Baroun Tardis laughs
[2010/01/24 16:41] Odile Mistwood: I'm looking, I'm looking.
[2010/01/24 16:41] Anastasia Horngold: rofl allie
[2010/01/24 16:41] Cursa Charisma laughs
[2010/01/24 16:41] Odile Mistwood laughs.
[2010/01/24 16:41] Cody Winterwolf: Heheheh
[2010/01/24 16:41] Baroun Tardis: I've also noticed that there seems to be a pattern for the personality as well
[2010/01/24 16:41] Allen Kerensky: a Napoleonic drift?
[2010/01/24 16:42] Baroun Tardis: In real life, short people tend to have a bit of Napoleon complex - they are compensating for being the little kid ont he playground
[2010/01/24 16:42] Baroun Tardis: in SL, the huge folks are the ones with that attitude
[2010/01/24 16:42] Kontessa Frostbite giggles and decides to behave for a bit
[2010/01/24 16:42] Cursa Charisma: Arent' many of them the same people?
[2010/01/24 16:42] Baroun Tardis: I'm not attacking anyone here.....
[2010/01/24 16:42] Allen Kerensky: why can I only think of Ian Holm as Napoleon in Time Bandits now
[2010/01/24 16:42] Baroun Tardis: Just saying
[2010/01/24 16:42] Allen Kerensky: "I want to see little things HITTING each other"
[2010/01/24 16:42] Cody Winterwolf: No worries.. In Rl I'm 5'9"
[2010/01/24 16:42] Odile Mistwood: Here's one of the photos:
[2010/01/24 16:42] Baroun Tardis: You're lucky, Allen, because I'm thining of "Bill & Ted"'s Napoleon
[2010/01/24 16:42] Cursa Charisma: Thanks, Odile!
[2010/01/24 16:43] Baroun Tardis: so.... Where does that fit into RP?
[2010/01/24 16:43] Cursa Charisma listens
[2010/01/24 16:43] Allen Kerensky: wow that pic needs to be on Wonder WOman ISland
[2010/01/24 16:43] Anastasia Horngold opens her notebook.
[2010/01/24 16:43] Baroun Tardis: I sometimes feel lost on ships scaled for the giants
[2010/01/24 16:43] Baroun Tardis: and cannot count the number of Goreans who said, "Little Man" when addressing me
[2010/01/24 16:44] Reiko Soyinka: Hmmm, that looks like one of the guy behind the keyboard females.
[2010/01/24 16:44] Baroun Tardis laughs at Reiko
[2010/01/24 16:44] Allen Kerensky: "easier to cut your off from down here... now who's the little man"
[2010/01/24 16:44] Baroun Tardis: ((My brother's tip was "once you break their knees, everyone is the same height when face down on the pavement))
[2010/01/24 16:44] Allen Kerensky: that too
[2010/01/24 16:45] Baroun Tardis: I prefer to keep my Av at a "realistic" height...
[2010/01/24 16:45] Allen Kerensky: which makes you feel like you are in the land of the giants, yeah
[2010/01/24 16:45] Cody Winterwolf: Yep.
[2010/01/24 16:45] Kontessa Frostbite grins at Baroun
[2010/01/24 16:45] Allen Kerensky: especially with the camera float messing up perspective too
[2010/01/24 16:45] Baroun Tardis: even when folks in some sims say, "Goreans are supposed to be tall" -- and I say, "Woman, you're taller than Shaq!!! How's that work?"
[2010/01/24 16:45] Allen Kerensky: lower gravity on Gor?
[2010/01/24 16:46] Reiko Soyinka: hehehehe
[2010/01/24 16:46] Cody Winterwolf: Even at theis height, I got people who say thier only 6' and I have to look up at em.
[2010/01/24 16:46] Allen Kerensky: make a 2m box and lean on it, lady
[2010/01/24 16:46] Baroun Tardis nods,"And then I whip out the 'how tall is your avatar'tool"
[2010/01/24 16:46] Baroun Tardis: people are genuinely shocked
[2010/01/24 16:46] Cody Winterwolf: Yep.
[2010/01/24 16:46] Baroun Tardis: and I think I know where it comes from
[2010/01/24 16:46] Baroun Tardis: when you first edit your Av, day one in SL
[2010/01/24 16:46] Baroun Tardis: there is no perspective
[2010/01/24 16:46] Cursa Charisma nods
[2010/01/24 16:46] Cody Winterwolf: Yeah.
[2010/01/24 16:46] Baroun Tardis: nothing to compare to
[2010/01/24 16:47] Cody Winterwolf: And the heights are set for %
[2010/01/24 16:47] Baroun Tardis: and the sliders are 0-100 --- which is meaningless
[2010/01/24 16:47] Cody Winterwolf: Not for feet or CM
[2010/01/24 16:47] Baroun Tardis nods to Cody
[2010/01/24 16:47] Reiko Soyinka: Right...I set my avi to 50%
[2010/01/24 16:47] Anastasia Horngold: me too--50% sounds so reasonable
[2010/01/24 16:47] Cody Winterwolf: I think I'm set at 39 %
[2010/01/24 16:47] Baroun Tardis: "But these dials go to 11" is a common issue though
[2010/01/24 16:47] Reiko Soyinka: came out at 6'1" with no shoes on.
[2010/01/24 16:47] Anastasia Horngold: I'm at 0% right now, which i don't understand
[2010/01/24 16:48] Baroun Tardis: "If everyone else is 50%... I'll go 52%"
[2010/01/24 16:48] Kontessa Frostbite: gotta love LL
[2010/01/24 16:48] Cursa Charisma nods
[2010/01/24 16:48] Baroun Tardis: "get that little edge"
[2010/01/24 16:48] Allen Kerensky:
[2010/01/24 16:48] Anastasia Horngold: Cursa, the picture is hilarious
[2010/01/24 16:48] Anastasia Horngold: Love the expressions
[2010/01/24 16:48] Cursa Charisma: Reiko's seen this comparison before
[2010/01/24 16:48] Cursa Charisma: But for the rest of you, this was when Cursa was still 6'3"
[2010/01/24 16:48] Baroun Tardis: Yeah, I can believe it
[2010/01/24 16:49] Baroun Tardis: Well, I've babbled, but I'd like to put a question on the floor --
[2010/01/24 16:49] Reiko Soyinka still scrapes her jaw up off the floor.
[2010/01/24 16:49] Baroun Tardis: Does it matter in RP ?
[2010/01/24 16:49] Baroun Tardis: So long as the _persepective_ looks right
[2010/01/24 16:49] Baroun Tardis: does it matter greatly?
[2010/01/24 16:49] Allen Kerensky: combat RP? yes... if you are the bigger target
[2010/01/24 16:49] Cursa Charisma: Depends on the rp setting, doesn't it?
[2010/01/24 16:49] Baroun Tardis: Obvioulsly, pictures like that, something's wrong
[2010/01/24 16:49] Baroun Tardis: but if everyone is 7'4"... . you don't notice until a realist shows up
[2010/01/24 16:50] Anastasia Horngold: Depend on a lot of things--how realistic is the rp, for one
[2010/01/24 16:50] Cody Winterwolf: Then you have to stop and wonder.
[2010/01/24 16:50] Cursa Charisma: The other fellow in that pic is nine feet - maxed out
[2010/01/24 16:50] Anastasia Horngold: Meters in RP are of course an arbitrary yardstick
[2010/01/24 16:50] Anastasia Horngold: I mean in SL
[2010/01/24 16:50] Baroun Tardis: what was normal in the sim, Cursa?
[2010/01/24 16:50] Allen Kerensky: 6'8" if I remember that convo
[2010/01/24 16:51] Cursa Charisma: Well, mine was the only male avatar under 2m
[2010/01/24 16:51] Kontessa Frostbite laughs
[2010/01/24 16:51] Cursa Charisma: Fully grown Egyptian men were 1.6, 1.7m
[2010/01/24 16:51] Cursa Charisma: The rich ones
[2010/01/24 16:51] Cursa Charisma: With good diet
[2010/01/24 16:51] Reiko Soyinka: The rest were closer to Lex.
[2010/01/24 16:51] Anastasia Horngold: And we all know that's a historical reality....
[2010/01/24 16:51] Allen Kerensky: so, what you need to is a noob pose stand with a scale built in behind it
[2010/01/24 16:51] Kontessa Frostbite: Yes I often run into women who tower over me and I am not that Short here
[2010/01/24 16:52] Baroun Tardis: I really like the scale here
[2010/01/24 16:52] Anastasia Horngold: The problem, to me, is height inflation, where everyone keeps getting taller, plus needing to fit into somewhat standardized building and vehicle sizes
[2010/01/24 16:52] Baroun Tardis: I'd like to see those at Newbie Island
[2010/01/24 16:52] Cody Winterwolf: Yeah
[2010/01/24 16:53] Cursa Charisma: Yes, Anastasia, the SL scale problem is intertwined here
[2010/01/24 16:53] Cursa Charisma: And it's a major problem
[2010/01/24 16:53] Allen Kerensky: there is one on reactiongrid's orientation area
[2010/01/24 16:53] Height Detector (Accurate) - Prim Height: Anastasia Horngold is 1.882796 m (6 ft. 2in.) tall. (counting shoes) - Prim Height
[2010/01/24 16:53] Baroun Tardis: You know, if we all used tiny avs, our sims would effectively be bigger...
[2010/01/24 16:53] Reiko Soyinka: Is it matched to the prims, Allen?
[2010/01/24 16:53] Allen Kerensky: yes
[2010/01/24 16:53] Anastasia Horngold: Good point Baroun!! (laugh)
[2010/01/24 16:53] Allen Kerensky: and I lived ina tiny sim for more than a year
[2010/01/24 16:53] Cursa Charisma: Yes, Baroun, but as you know, building gets insanely hard the smaller you try to go
[2010/01/24 16:53] Allen Kerensky: its great
[2010/01/24 16:54] Baroun Tardis: If I had a 20cm tall avi, it'd evectively be a 2560x2560x40,000 sim
[2010/01/24 16:54] Allen Kerensky: rent a 512 ... as a tiny, its like a 4096
[2010/01/24 16:54] Kontessa Frostbite nods at Cursa and grins
[2010/01/24 16:54] Cody Winterwolf: aND THEN WE'D FEEL LIKE GODZILLA THERE.
[2010/01/24 16:54] Cursa Charisma: This is LL trying to bluff their way around the limits of their infrastructure
[2010/01/24 16:54] Anastasia Horngold: Of course, if you start building small, you have more room, and so you use more prims.....
[2010/01/24 16:54] Cody Winterwolf: ((Sorry.. caplocks))
[2010/01/24 16:54] Cursa Charisma: It was a good effect, Cody
[2010/01/24 16:54] Cursa Charisma grins
[2010/01/24 16:54] Allen Kerensky: (to Cody) the sim owner and I did some godzilla raids on the place
[2010/01/24 16:55] Cody Winterwolf: Hahahahaha
[2010/01/24 16:55] Cody Winterwolf: Thanks.
[2010/01/24 16:55] Baroun Tardis points at Cody and in a bad accept says "Codzilla! Run! Codjiro!"
[2010/01/24 16:55] Cody Winterwolf: LMAO
[2010/01/24 16:55] Baroun Tardis: accent not accept
[2010/01/24 16:55] Baroun Tardis sighs
[2010/01/24 16:55] Cursa Charisma: Is anyone familiar with Etoile Galaxy?
[2010/01/24 16:55] Baroun Tardis shakes his head no
[2010/01/24 16:55] Cody Winterwolf: No
[2010/01/24 16:55] Anastasia Horngold: Attack of the giant killer Cod
[2010/01/24 16:56] Cursa Charisma: They overcome the problem of dogfighting in an interesting way
[2010/01/24 16:56] Cursa Charisma: The ships are very small, under 50cm long
[2010/01/24 16:56] Cursa Charisma: And they are worn as attachments
[2010/01/24 16:56] Cursa Charisma: The avatar is rolled up in an invisible ball behind the ship
[2010/01/24 16:56] Cody Winterwolf: Wow
[2010/01/24 16:56] Allen Kerensky: even smaller than the Tiny Fleet on
[2010/01/24 16:56] Cursa Charisma: So the 256m sided square becomes a big enough area to fight in
[2010/01/24 16:56] Baroun Tardis: oh, clever... Taash worked on some mini-ships, about 1-2m long
[2010/01/24 16:57] Baroun Tardis: neat idea
[2010/01/24 16:57] Allen Kerensky: i can smell Baroun's brain thinking of how to add a "nano mode" to HTCS
[2010/01/24 16:57] Cursa Charisma nods
[2010/01/24 16:57] Baroun Tardis laughs at Allen
[2010/01/24 16:57] Cody Winterwolf: Heheheheh
[2010/01/24 16:57] Cursa Charisma: If you're doing video-game stuff, yes
[2010/01/24 16:57] Cursa Charisma: RP is different, IMO
[2010/01/24 16:57] Cursa Charisma grins
[2010/01/24 16:58] Allen Kerensky gave you Squidy Tiananmen Square =>.<=.
[2010/01/24 16:58] Allen Kerensky: a tiny army on the march
[2010/01/24 16:58] Allen Kerensky: the buildings came up to my belly button
[2010/01/24 16:58] Baroun Tardis grins
[2010/01/24 16:58] Cody Winterwolf: Cool.
[2010/01/24 16:58] Anastasia Horngold: funny
[2010/01/24 16:58] Cursa Charisma nods
[2010/01/24 16:59] Allen Kerensky: scale tricks are good for machinima too
[2010/01/24 16:59] Cursa Charisma: Of course
[2010/01/24 16:59] Allen Kerensky: so, for RP, what does scale mean? how you build your sim? alienating newcomers? IC reasons to be certain sizes?
[2010/01/24 16:59] Cursa Charisma: Depends on whether hardcore "realism" is part of your core concept
[2010/01/24 17:00] Allen Kerensky: for recreating LoTR or D&D in SL, its important that halflings not top out at 8' tall
[2010/01/24 17:00] Cursa Charisma: If you have, say, an open sci-fi rp sandbox, then it's not an issue
[2010/01/24 17:00] Baroun Tardis: Allen -- "Time and a halfling"
[2010/01/24 17:00] Cursa Charisma: Right, the question is, what's core to your setting?
[2010/01/24 17:00] Cursa Charisma groans
[2010/01/24 17:00] Cursa Charisma grins
[2010/01/24 17:00] Reiko Soyinka: Except about the 7 foot tall anthro-gerbils.
[2010/01/24 17:00] Anastasia Horngold: Add in the problem of camera height, which means that even "normal" buildings need to have tall ceilings and doors to be comfortable
[2010/01/24 17:00] Allen Kerensky: *shudder*
[2010/01/24 17:01] Baroun Tardis: Camera height is another issue
[2010/01/24 17:01] Cursa Charisma: Right, Anastasia, SL scaling problem again
[2010/01/24 17:01] Cursa Charisma: But related
[2010/01/24 17:01] Baroun Tardis: I think it throws off people's sense of scale
[2010/01/24 17:01] Cursa Charisma: If your avatar's head is near the ceiling...
[2010/01/24 17:01] Anastasia Horngold: yes, or when you have to camera in every time you go into a small room
[2010/01/24 17:01] Cursa Charisma nods
[2010/01/24 17:01] Allen Kerensky: so, is this a problem to solve? a windmill to tilt at?
[2010/01/24 17:01] Reiko Soyinka: A thing to be aware of.
[2010/01/24 17:01] Baroun Tardis: I think it might be a window to be aware of....
[2010/01/24 17:01] Allen Kerensky: are we resolving to ignore SL scale silliness, or tackle it somehow
[2010/01/24 17:02] Reiko Soyinka: brb
[2010/01/24 17:02] Cody Winterwolf: ok
[2010/01/24 17:02] Anastasia Horngold: I would like to put the avatar scale at our sim TP spot
[2010/01/24 17:02] Allen Kerensky: would be funny if Emerald Viewer fixed the scale issue in their constants files
[2010/01/24 17:02] Cursa Charisma nods
[2010/01/24 17:02] Anastasia Horngold: so that incomers would at least get the reminder
[2010/01/24 17:02] Baroun Tardis: When I built the Sierra, I had a pretty defined max external size, and a list of what things inside were supposed to be volume-wise. I cheated, cut the fuel tanks much smaller and used the volume to mkae ceilings higher for the camera
[2010/01/24 17:02] Cursa Charisma nods
[2010/01/24 17:03] Cody Winterwolf: nods
[2010/01/24 17:03] Baroun Tardis: So.. we "adapt"
[2010/01/24 17:03] Cursa Charisma: To the scale problem, yes
[2010/01/24 17:04] Anastasia Horngold: If builders are more aware of scale, they won't create such oversized buildings/furniture, which in turn should somewhat discourage avi height inflation.
[2010/01/24 17:04] Baroun Tardis: Yeah, once they hit their heads on something
[2010/01/24 17:04] Cody Winterwolf nods
[2010/01/24 17:04] Cursa Charisma: But most builders are building to suit their perceived market
[2010/01/24 17:04] Anastasia Horngold: true
[2010/01/24 17:04] Cursa Charisma: So they follow rather than lead
[2010/01/24 17:05] Baroun Tardis: and in many cases, the builders themselves are 7' +
[2010/01/24 17:05] Cursa Charisma nods
[2010/01/24 17:05] Anastasia Horngold: And most don't build multiple sizes.
[2010/01/24 17:05] Cursa Charisma: Right
[2010/01/24 17:05] Reiko Soyinka: I sink about half my furniture into the floors.
[2010/01/24 17:05] Anastasia Horngold: yes! lol
[2010/01/24 17:06] Cody Winterwolf: I seen people do that
[2010/01/24 17:06] Baroun Tardis: just to get it right
[2010/01/24 17:06] Reiko Soyinka: My feet are supposed to rest on the floor.
[2010/01/24 17:06] Allen Kerensky: also have to watch out since SL "floats" you over the ground slightly to simplify collision calculation
[2010/01/24 17:06] Reiko Soyinka: /nod
[2010/01/24 17:06] Anastasia Horngold clears her throat. "My feet are dangling in the air, sitting on this ledge."
[2010/01/24 17:07] Cursa Charisma: Excellent point, Anastasia
[2010/01/24 17:07] Cursa Charisma grins
[2010/01/24 17:07] Baroun Tardis: Welcome to SL :)
[2010/01/24 17:07] Cody Winterwolf: Hehehehehe
[2010/01/24 17:07] Allen Kerensky: Emerald does have a viewer-specific setting to sink you down to the ground visually
[2010/01/24 17:07] Anastasia Horngold: yes, that's a nice feature
[2010/01/24 17:08] Reiko Soyinka: I think I'm going to bring this up to my builder's group.
[2010/01/24 17:08] Baroun Tardis: Something to share, but then you run into an issue
[2010/01/24 17:08] Baroun Tardis: you build "sensible"
[2010/01/24 17:08] Baroun Tardis: and then .... well... the ship construction Judge won't fit
[2010/01/24 17:08] Baroun Tardis sighs
[2010/01/24 17:08] Top Room Sensor v1.02: Brooke Rhea has entered detection range of Top Room Sensor 2.
[2010/01/24 17:08] Anastasia Horngold: Is anyone thinking of trying to address this in more than just their own sim or group?
[2010/01/24 17:08] Cursa Charisma: Welcome, Brooke!
[2010/01/24 17:08] Cody Winterwolf: Hey Brooke
[2010/01/24 17:08] Anastasia Horngold: Hi Brooke
[2010/01/24 17:09] Baroun Tardis: Howdy!
[2010/01/24 17:09] Reiko Soyinka: Well, my builders group should touch on quite a few sims.
[2010/01/24 17:09] Cursa Charisma: What are you thinking of, Anastasia?
[2010/01/24 17:09] Height Detector (Accurate) - Prim Height: Allen Kerensky is 1.967236 m (6 ft. 5in.) tall. (counting shoes) - Prim Height
[2010/01/24 17:09] Brooke Rhea: HI everyne.
[2010/01/24 17:09] Cursa Charisma: The yardstick display over there is free to copy
[2010/01/24 17:09] Brooke Rhea: *everyone
[2010/01/24 17:10] Anastasia Horngold: Just wondering.
[2010/01/24 17:10] Baroun Tardis: oh, yeah!
[2010/01/24 17:10] Anastasia Horngold: I can see ways to encourage people within a sim or RP or group, but SL-wide is probably beyond hope.
[2010/01/24 17:10] Cursa Charisma: Well, you've seen and heard my activist plan - I've made my avatar a living yardstick
[2010/01/24 17:10] Cursa Charisma grins
[2010/01/24 17:10] Cursa Charisma: Yes, leading by example in our own groups is the way, imo
[2010/01/24 17:10] Baroun Tardis: cursa
[2010/01/24 17:10] Baroun Tardis: I can take it, but can't take copy
[2010/01/24 17:10] Anastasia Horngold: true! "Avatars without Borders" !!!
[2010/01/24 17:11] Cursa Charisma: OK, sec
[2010/01/24 17:11] Cursa Charisma: You should now be able to buy it for L$0
[2010/01/24 17:11] Cody Winterwolf: Yeah. Can I get one too?
[2010/01/24 17:11] Cursa Charisma: Feel free
[2010/01/24 17:11] Cody Winterwolf: Cool
[2010/01/24 17:12] Cursa Charisma: It's meant to be freely available, the same as everything here
[2010/01/24 17:12] Reiko Soyinka: Maybe I'm looking at the wrong thing...
[2010/01/24 17:12] Anastasia Horngold: this might be a bit obnoxious, but one could wear a sign when out shopping, for instance, saying "I am 6 feet tall."
[2010/01/24 17:12] Cursa Charisma: The "How tall is your avatar?" display should be buyable for free now
[2010/01/24 17:12] Cursa Charisma: LOL, Anastasia
[2010/01/24 17:13] Cursa Charisma: True activism!
[2010/01/24 17:13] Cursa Charisma: "Fight SL Heightism!"
[2010/01/24 17:13] Allen Kerensky: lol
[2010/01/24 17:13] Allen Kerensky: "That's Heightist!"
[2010/01/24 17:13] Cursa Charisma nods
[2010/01/24 17:13] Cursa Charisma: Yup
[2010/01/24 17:13] Cursa Charisma: Next battle: rightism! (everything's made for right-handed avatars)
[2010/01/24 17:13] Allen Kerensky: so, the Napoleon Crusade begins
[2010/01/24 17:13] Anastasia Horngold: lol
[2010/01/24 17:14] Allen Kerensky: amen Cursa amen
[2010/01/24 17:14] Cursa Charisma: But Allen, the main point here is that avs who *aren't* short are being called little and underage
[2010/01/24 17:14] Cursa Charisma: Have we talked about that last one?
[2010/01/24 17:14] Anastasia Horngold: not yet today
[2010/01/24 17:14] Reiko Soyinka: [17:10] Anastasia Horngold: I can see ways to encourage people within a sim or RP or group, but SL-wide is probably beyond hope.
[2010/01/24 17:14] Reiko Soyinka: I disagree.
[2010/01/24 17:14] Cursa Charisma: People being denied entry because their "child avs" supposedly violate "age play" restrictions?
[2010/01/24 17:15] Cody Winterwolf: And people who looks small get the furry eyeball.
[2010/01/24 17:15] Cursa Charisma waits to hear Reiko's point
[2010/01/24 17:15] Anastasia Horngold: yes, reiko?
[2010/01/24 17:15] Cursa Charisma: As opposed to the Gorean eyeball?
[2010/01/24 17:15] Reiko Soyinka: The US used to be a nation of smokers and drinkers.
[2010/01/24 17:15] Brooke Rhea: Those are the ones that set their height to max Cursa
[2010/01/24 17:15] Allen Kerensky: now we're all fat
[2010/01/24 17:15] Allen Kerensky: because we're not out drinking and smoking
[2010/01/24 17:16] Cursa Charisma grins
[2010/01/24 17:16] Baroun Tardis: Ok, then need some vodka and a good cigar as aprt of a weight loss program
[2010/01/24 17:16] Anastasia Horngold: and we are sitting on our butts playing in SL!
[2010/01/24 17:16] Allen Kerensky: but the point is valid, with time, and constant consistent effort, you can wear down a mountain
[2010/01/24 17:17] Anastasia Horngold: point taken
[2010/01/24 17:17] Cody Winterwolf: True ehnough
[2010/01/24 17:17] Cursa Charisma: Has everyone been to Doomed Ship?
[2010/01/24 17:17] Allen Kerensky: i believe Baroun tells that story from time to time on Splintered Radio - the man and his family harvesting from the valley beyond a mountain
[2010/01/24 17:17] Cody Winterwolf: I have
[2010/01/24 17:17] Reiko Soyinka: No, what is Doomed Ship?
[2010/01/24 17:17] Baroun Tardis: Doomed ?
[2010/01/24 17:17] Cody Winterwolf: Had to shrink myself to the right height.
[2010/01/24 17:18] Cursa Charisma: Yes, Doomed Ship starts off right away telling you about the avatar size thing
[2010/01/24 17:18] Cursa Charisma: Offers free shapes of normal human size
[2010/01/24 17:18] Cursa Charisma: Warns people that oversize avs will not be able to navigate
[2010/01/24 17:18] Baroun Tardis chuckles
[2010/01/24 17:18] Cursa Charisma: And gives out those gray cylinder measuring devices
[2010/01/24 17:18] Allen Kerensky: easy to make a smaller entryway as a simple barrier to navigation
[2010/01/24 17:18] Top Room Sensor v1.02: Heihachi Nakamura has entered detection range of Top Room Sensor 2.
[2010/01/24 17:18] Cursa Charisma: Do you want barriers, or examples and information?
[2010/01/24 17:19] Allen Kerensky: but you do alienate the "can't be bothered with something that nitpicky or silly" crowd
[2010/01/24 17:19] Anastasia Horngold: Depdns on how strictly important size is to the RP
[2010/01/24 17:19] Cursa Charisma: Again, Allen, it depends on what's core to your setting
[2010/01/24 17:19] Cody Winterwolf: Hi Hei
[2010/01/24 17:19] Cursa Charisma: Hey, Hachi
[2010/01/24 17:19] Anastasia Horngold: Or how grouchy everyone has gotten
[2010/01/24 17:19] Cursa Charisma grins
[2010/01/24 17:19] Heihachi Nakamura: ((aw son of a bitch wait a min))
[2010/01/24 17:20] Baroun Tardis: Howdy-Hei
[2010/01/24 17:20] Cursa Charisma: Nice, Baroun
[2010/01/24 17:20] Cursa Charisma grins
[2010/01/24 17:20] Heihachi Nakamura: hi.
[2010/01/24 17:20] Kontessa Frostbite: Is that my Cue to say "Size Does Matter" ?
[2010/01/24 17:20] Cursa Charisma: Thank you, Kontessa
[2010/01/24 17:20] Cursa Charisma smiles broadly
[2010/01/24 17:21] Cody Winterwolf chuckles.
[2010/01/24 17:21] Kontessa Frostbite grins innocently
[2010/01/24 17:22] Allen Kerensky: is the presentation over or did I crash?
[2010/01/24 17:22] Brooke Rhea: I think making nice looking shapes available of decent sizes is one way to help. I know when I went to one sim a while ago everyone was huge ... not making my avt a bit taller meant that I was at everyone's waist. And another I had to make a smaller character than the one I even use now because everyone was small. So I think if you just have most of hte people normal height people will adjust.
[2010/01/24 17:22] Allen Kerensky: ah
[2010/01/24 17:22] Cursa Charisma: So example by core membership?
[2010/01/24 17:23] Heihachi Nakamura: **i'll just show off my main av**
[2010/01/24 17:23] Allen Kerensky: try to set a trend and hope to lead by example?
[2010/01/24 17:23] Reiko Soyinka blinks and thinks of The Incredibles.
[2010/01/24 17:23] Heihachi Nakamura: ((oh fuck off reiko))
[2010/01/24 17:23] Cursa Charisma: Cool it, Hachi
[2010/01/24 17:23] Heihachi Nakamura: No.
[2010/01/24 17:24] Anastasia Horngold: Fantastic skin!
[2010/01/24 17:24] Heihachi Nakamura: This avatar, very important :p
[2010/01/24 17:24] Brooke Rhea: exactly ... if hte core members are a certain way people will probably follow .... and of course as newbies get more knowledge about where to find things they also will adjust. I don't care that I'm 7 feet tall if everyone else is 10 I'm too short.
[2010/01/24 17:25] Cursa Charisma: So it leads into the idea of having several shapes saved as "outfits" for quick change?
[2010/01/24 17:25] Allen Kerensky: but that example seems to be sim or estate specific
[2010/01/24 17:25] Cursa Charisma: "Brooke for Firefly", "Brooke for Avatar", "Brooke for The Shire", and so on?
[2010/01/24 17:25] Cody Winterwolf: Sim owners can enforce heights by using a fwe things. Like the builds and the entry where the palyers start.
[2010/01/24 17:25] Brooke Rhea: I don't think you're going to change SL as a whole
[2010/01/24 17:25] Anastasia Horngold: Getting your core members to adopt a more "normal" size is a good start. However, it's still hard to compare sizes by eye.
[2010/01/24 17:26] Allen Kerensky: well, you tend to have multiple looks and equipment sets for various sims anyway
[2010/01/24 17:26] Brooke Rhea: If you think you are ... then you should start with changing the real world first
[2010/01/24 17:26] Cursa Charisma: Welcome, Kerm!
[2010/01/24 17:26] Top Room Sensor v1.02: Kermudgeon Baar has entered detection range of Top Room Sensor 2.
[2010/01/24 17:26] Cody Winterwolf: Hey Kerm
[2010/01/24 17:26] Kermudgeon Baar: hey
[2010/01/24 17:26] Cursa Charisma: So Kerm, how tall is your avatar?
[2010/01/24 17:26] Kermudgeon Baar: tall
[2010/01/24 17:26] Anastasia Horngold: A friend and I happened to stand really close to each other, which I guess we hadn't done in a while. That's when we realized we were about 2' different in size.
[2010/01/24 17:27] Anastasia Horngold: We hadn't realized.
[2010/01/24 17:27] Baroun Tardis grins,"WHEN DID YOU GROW!! ?? ! ! " (lauging)
[2010/01/24 17:28] Cody Winterwolf: Godizira....!
[2010/01/24 17:28] Kontessa Frostbite looks at his titler and giggles
[2010/01/24 17:28] Kermudgeon Baar smiles
[2010/01/24 17:28] Kontessa Frostbite: Large but it appears cuddly or someone thinks so
[2010/01/24 17:29] Cursa Charisma grins
[2010/01/24 17:29] Allen Kerensky: meow
[2010/01/24 17:29] Kermudgeon Baar: I did a make-over
[2010/01/24 17:29] Cursa Charisma: So Kerm, touch the gray cylinder behind me, please
[2010/01/24 17:29] Height Detector (Accurate) - Prim Height: Kermudgeon Baar is 2.499239 m (8 ft. 2in.) tall. (counting shoes) - Prim Height
[2010/01/24 17:29] Cursa Charisma: Thanks!
[2010/01/24 17:29] Cody Winterwolf: WHoa!
[2010/01/24 17:29] Allen Kerensky: now, how many astronaut and spacefaring characters are here - there are NASA stats on height increase over time in orbit
[2010/01/24 17:30] Height Detector (Accurate) - Prim Height: Kontessa Frostbite is 1.970725 m (6 ft. 5in.) tall. (counting shoes) - Prim Height
[2010/01/24 17:30] Heihachi Nakamura gave you ShinRa Assault Rifle.
[2010/01/24 17:30] Kermudgeon Baar: it ishard to find shoes. let me tell you
[2010/01/24 17:30] Baroun Tardis grins, "I'm not tall - i was spaced that way"
[2010/01/24 17:30] Allen Kerensky: misjump pulled your spine like taffy?
[2010/01/24 17:30] Cody Winterwolf: Hehehehe, no worries Kerm.
[2010/01/24 17:31] Reiko Soyinka: shoes...oh!
[2010/01/24 17:31] Reiko Soyinka: That is where height demonstrates a real problem...
[2010/01/24 17:31] Odile Mistwood: May I try the meter?
[2010/01/24 17:31] Reiko Soyinka: about 90% of womens shoes are size 0...
[2010/01/24 17:31] Cursa Charisma: Please, Odile!
[2010/01/24 17:31] Odile Mistwood: The stand in the center?
[2010/01/24 17:32] Heihachi Nakamura: about 90% of women on sl are size 0 :p
[2010/01/24 17:32] Cursa Charisma: Over by Kerm
[2010/01/24 17:32] Reiko Soyinka: Size 0 feet look strange on me...they look stranger on Odile
[2010/01/24 17:32] Cursa Charisma: The gray cylinder here
[2010/01/24 17:32] Height Detector (Accurate) - Prim Height: Odile Mistwood is 2.203357 m (7 ft. 2in.) tall. (counting shoes) - Prim Height
[2010/01/24 17:32] Heihachi Nakamura has actually been complimented on his startlingly....realistic av :p
[2010/01/24 17:32] Cursa Charisma: Having clothing that doesn't resize is ridiculous, isn't it?
[2010/01/24 17:32] Reiko Soyinka: Hei, we are 0 because we want those shoes.
[2010/01/24 17:32] Allen Kerensky: adn resizer scripts are lag monsters
[2010/01/24 17:33] Allen Kerensky: when people forget to remove them
[2010/01/24 17:33] Height Detector (Accurate) - Prim Height: Kermudgeon Baar is 2.459227 m (8 ft. 0in.) tall. (counting shoes) - Prim Height
[2010/01/24 17:33] Reiko Soyinka: I hate those scripts.
[2010/01/24 17:33] Height Detector (Accurate) - Prim Height: Heihachi Nakamura is 1.973205 m (6 ft. 5in.) tall. (counting shoes) - Prim Height
[2010/01/24 17:33] Cursa Charisma: And if things are just plain moddable, too many noobs will mangle them and then complain to the maker?
[2010/01/24 17:33] Heihachi Nakamura: tall as i am irl, fook yes
[2010/01/24 17:33] Kontessa Frostbite looks at Hei and thinks if he looks that large in RL she hopes he avoids little old ladies in rl or he is scaring them to death
[2010/01/24 17:33] Heihachi Nakamura: ;]
[2010/01/24 17:33] Reiko Soyinka: hehehehehehe

It was full of animated scenes from snuff films on cubes. The guy was pleasuring himself to snuff in the sim, and nobody even knew it!
