085 SWF Gathering 3 February 2024

[12:01 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: Welcome to Safe Waters Foundation weekly aquatic support gathering. My name is Miranda. I will be leading today’s meeting.

Welcome new and old aquatics and friends!
[12:01 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: Safe waters foundation (SWF) is a not-for-profit group supporting the development of harmony and safety for merfolk and aquatics of second life, we bring together designers, retailers, sims, merrow, mermen, mermaids, siren, aquatics and lovers of same.
[12:02 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: People seem to arrive late and depart early. Please don’t be offended but as leader I will try to keep the meeting going. We don’t repeat things for latecomers – a log is posted on our blog after the meeting. This is not a place for public debate – this is a helpful place. we all help each other slive an aquatic lifestyle.
[12:03 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: Because we usually have good attendance – please take a moment to remove all extra attachments and huds. We’d like you to dress low lag. Big poofy hair and jewelry are big culprits, as are bubbles, script things, huds, and such. If we all cooperate, more merfolk can participate with less crashing. Thank you for your help with this.

[12:40 PM] Granny Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): Tabi was supposed to give her your mall notecard you gave me Miranda – might have Beatrix reach out to Echo
[12:40 PM] Granny Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): Echo is inAustrailia – so you need to think sort of sequentially when communicating with her
[12:41 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: okay when I get her on she’ll tackle that
[12:41 PM] Granny Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): send IM/copyim into nc/drop nc on her

[12:44 PM] Dana Enyo: Some of you may have heard about PBR–Physically Based Rendering–the new graphic materials rendering being implemented in SL.
[12:45 PM] Chicky Darkheart (JustaChicky Goldshark): waves a fin at Dana
[12:45 PM] Dana Enyo: It is now in the official SL Viewer; Firestorm is in Alpha testing right now… But it is active in ALL regions already. IF you have a PBR-enabled viewr, you can see the PBR effects on my tail.
[12:45 PM] Granny Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): penut butter revenge!
[12:45 PM] Dana Enyo: MY TAIL is PBR. You are probably just seeing it in the same old materials. But I took a little 18-second video that you can see HERE: https://flic.kr/p/2pweouQ
[12:45 PM] ᴄᴏᴍᴇᴛ (HarumiMichi Resident): yeeeee pbrrrr wooooo (criees in fireestorm that is only in beta for pbr)

[12:45 PM] Dana Enyo: THAT is what I see on my screen.
[12:46 PM] Dana Enyo: Anyway, you’ll hear a lot more about it over the next months. A LOT of things look a little different in a PBR viewer; a little more contrasty.
[12:46 PM] ᴄᴏᴍᴇᴛ (HarumiMichi Resident): oh omg that’s so cool
[12:46 PM] Dana Enyo: I’ve been putting sample videos and photos on my Flickr as I play around. So if you’re interested, just start following https://flickr.com/danaenyo .
[12:46 PM] Miranda Barrowstone: I see it doing a real cool twisty thing…
[12:46 PM] Alyx (AlyxAdventures Resident): Shiny 😮
[12:46 PM] Dana Enyo: DO look at that little video! I put the PBR on it as I was sitting here.
[12:46 PM] Lily Lewellen: cool, very shiny
[12:47 PM] Dana Enyo: You can open the SL Viewer anytime and see how it looks. Not much out there yet…
[12:47 PM] Dana Enyo: But I’m selling some booties at SL LIving Expo that are PBR. I hope to sell some; Relay gets all the Lindens!
[12:47 PM] Dana Enyo: That’s it! Thanks MIranda!

  • to make mer resources (events, projects, groups, retailers, sims, designers) visible and easily accessible
  • to assist, as possible, with the viability of mer resources so they may continue to be available to the community
  • to promote the conservation of rl oceans, lakes and waterways and the nature that relies on them

Now go mingle and explore! Thanks for joining us this day!!
