Post is pinned.
For the time being, I've changed how posts are made to this group.

If you make a post, it will need to be approved by a moderator. Only posts that are related to Avatarfest will be approved.

On March 31st I will open the group up again so that you can post without needing approval. That will be when we discuss any plans for Avatarfest 2017.

Thank you all ...past, present and future participants of Avatarfest!

I made my first new item since coming back to OpenSim. I actually had to watch one of my own video tutorials to remember how to rig mesh clothing lol.
You can find this in 5 standard sizes and one fitmesh FREE and FULL PERMS to use any way you want at my Clutterfly store on the Metropolis grid. hypergrid.org:8002:Linda Kellie

I've been ejected from Opensim Virtual. I wasn't told why, but I'm guessing that it is because I questioned Talla Adama and because I offered my group as an alternate place to talk about Space.

That is going to make coordinating and promotion difficult, and also ...between that and other hassles I've gotten for "not being true to opensim" leaves me cold to the idea of going through all of this hassle again in 2017.

At this moment, as long as the "you're either with us, or against us" mindset remains the prevailing mood in the opensim community, there will ***NOT*** be another Avatarfest next year.

This divisiveness is nothing to celebrate, in fact it's the antithesis of why I started this ball rolling in the first place.

Your Avatar fest build can remain available on my place
Reminder: I have set up a place where I would like to reprise some of the AvatarFEST builds. There is one already there and another to come when AFEST sim closes. If anyone would like to place their display in that place, contact me in Kitely and we can make arrangements for your display.

More details on putting Avatar Fest builds on my place.

Ndebele shebeen already has a build there-and I have a place marked out for Han Held. There is plenty of space. You need to be in the Creativity group to rez there - Send me a friend invite inworld and I will invite you-- sometimes this fails unless both are inworld.

This got placed on my desk this morning, so I thought i would share it with ya'll.

Ferd just released the Outworldz Hypergrid Installer, which is is an open source Windows-compatible Opensimulator system that is easy to install, easy to run, and quite powerful. It's like Sim-On-A-Stick, but has 0.9.0 Opensim plus the Hypergrid. There's a long list of features such as uPnP router support, diagnostics, easy OAR loading and auto backups. It has an Auto-Updater, too. It works with any viewer, and comes bundled with the Onlook Viewer by Diva Canto, aka Crista Videira Lopes, which is specifically designed to be very easy for new people to use. Business users will appreciate the No-Avatar mode, too. Outworldz switches seamlessly between 0.8.2.1 released and Opensim 0.9.0 dev code, where you can enjoy greater Second Life compatibility. Both versions are included, and 0.9.0 dev will be updated to released status automatically when it is officially ready. Debbie Edwards and Ferd have also been setting up pre-configured OARs for you to play with. No console commands are needed - you just click to change sims. She made a very nice Garden By The Sea simulator with different NPC animals such as turtles, rabbits and birds along with hand-picked plants for the gardens, and furnished a lovely contemporary house with nice furniture collected from the hypergrid. They have lots of free OAR content from Garry Beaumont, P.van de Giessen, Dave_Pentecost, Arcadia Asylum, Justin K. Reeve, Michael Emory Cerquoni, and Linda Kellie, too, and you can add any OAR or IAR with simple Drag and Drop operation. You can get it at

Could someone show me how to make a video ?

+Pep Plastichansa and myself have patiently cloned our AvatarFest 2016 exhibit so that it'll have a permanent place in Condensation Land (Metropolis). We've placed it behind Arrabal Tango Club, and near the historical center (the C. Land Club), in a small island of its own :)
