This post is about an old place in Second Life which is no longer there in 2011. It’s left for history and memories of the past.
First off I did some changes to my face but I didn’t find out how to make a skin yet. Still have to use a tattoo. I forgot I could still change the shape of my face. I look a little more like myself now I think.
There is this place called
Teazers Island where they have classes on many different subjects. I mostly joined in the classes that taught how to make objects. All the classes are free by the way including all the supplies to make the objects! I’ll show you some stuff you can learn how to make also! Some of this stuff may seem simple to some but I am just learning how to do this and learned some interesting tricks. You can search in the events find window for “teazers” for upcoming classes.
This object is very useful when creating new objects or trying to fit on clothes or other objects! It’s called a “poser stand”, you can stand on it and move the camera around easily without moving your character. The instructor provided the textures and walked you through creating and manipulating the prims!
This is called a “poser ball.” I didn’t know what it was until I took the class. It allows you set up a pose, how you look, when sitting down or just standing in a certain way. Recently I took a class about making a cushion and we used a poser ball to have the character sit in different ways.
This object is from the first class I attended. It’s supposed to be a beachball which bounces around when moved. At this early stage I didn’t know how to stretch correctly so it came out deformed, but it did bounce around. The instructor provided the script for the bouncing to work.
Look it’s a fishbowl with animated fish! I learned how to create the fishbowl and was provided the fish. I don’t know if they have any classes on making fish yet. It was really interesting to see how all the different prims fit together. This one made me excited!
This is a cake that actually gives a user a piece of the cake for them to attach to their hand. This was more complicated than others cause there were two different objects tied together with a script. This was really interesting to me.
This was the coolest thing that I got to learn how to make! It’s a St. Patty’s day hat with clovers comming out of the hat. I was taught how to make the hat by manipulating prims. Once we created the hat we took the script and clover that was provided by the instructor and placed it in the contents of the hat! We didn’t go though too much about how to change the script but was taight how to slow it down. There are other classes which teach scripting.
This one was a bit too confusing for me. I was used to making big objects. The prims to make glasses were so small and I wasn’t good at moving the camera around. I fell behind and at the end of the class I got up to this point. The instructor suggested I should make bigger glasses so I can see how everything fits together easily. I am planning on trying this one again.
I just took this class this morning. An oriental table with cushions to sit on! This class really taught me a lot and shows how to use a poser ball for sitting on the cushions.
Teazers is also looking for instructors to help out. The instructors get paid for doing classes. This really seems an interesting way to make some money and provide a service to the community. I have more experiences to talk about but I think I filled up this space with too much anyway. Till next time!
