Where for art thou?

Hey guys. I have been a little busy in real life, which is why I have not been in sim as much. I am still here. Fear not. This might be a good posting place for letting each other know where we are and stuff.

FORWARD MOTION

What follows is a letter/note card that I received from Krislynn Pennell.  The contents make me hopefull that we can put the past behind us and try our best to press onward for the sake of the Players and all of those BSG lovers out there. It is clear that she has some reservations, but I feel that if we all work together to foster a healthy building/work environment then we can put some fears to rest, heal old wounds, find forgiveness and perhaps even a little understanding and respect for each other.

Krislynn has been a close SL friend of mine for a very long time and she can bring a lot of energy and ingenuity to the table. In time, I think we can make Kris feel comfortable again, despite the rocky past of the last attempted unification/collaboration. Things have been done and said by all sides, things that cannot be undone or unsaid. But, we are a small community of people that all share a love of sci-fi and a love for the BSG series. We must rise above the past or we will find ourselves drug down into another mire of our own making. We have seen it happen again and again. We all know it can be avoided, but we are human, and sometimes we act impulsively with our emotions. We take things out of context, and we make mountains out of mole hills. We need to see it for what it is (or what it was), and move past it.

I am re-posting her letter to me below, with her permission, so that you all can see that she is extending us an olive branch, with some reservations, but reservations that we can easily work with until she is comfortable with us again. We have a chance at being able to make much more rapid progress. Lets not screw it up…….. And, if we are lucky, perhaps Hanna will also return and assist.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

I was approached by Xavier Pomegranate and asked for assistance in finishing the Battlestar build he is working on. Based on past experiences with the BSG-21 staff and it’s ownership, I will only do so if the following conditions are met.

1) I want it made clear to the BSG-21 “admins” that my work will solely be centered on the battlestar itself. I refuse to invest my time, lindens or effort on anything else related to the sim until such time I feel comfortable with the working conditions.

2) Said work will be my property or the property of Xavier Pomegranate alone. I do not agree to simply hand over any work or ideas to the above mentioned “admins”.

3) I will agree to ignore any past ill will as long as the above mentioned “admins” agree to the same. If there is any unfair or negative actions made towards myself in any way because of past events I will immediately take my work and leave.

These above conditions are not meant to invoke any ill feelings. They are also subject to change depending on how my work with Xavier goes. At this time my trust extends to Xavier alone due to past circumstances but I’m willing to see how things go. I put my heart and soul into that sim once and in the end everything I worked for went to hell. However if this collaboration works and I feel comfortable with the situation my involvement may expand.

Wish List

As we are all slowly gaining momentum I thought it might be wise to have a place to post the things that we are currently in need of for what ever particular project we happen to be working on. If somebody needs me to build something or script something so that they can continue with a project they are working on they can either contact me directly or leave a post for me right here. But, in return, I get to do the same. This is where we beg and plead for that particular object, script, or animation that we don’t have, but that we hope somebody else in our group does have it and can share it.

So, since I have your attention…… here is what I am in need of right now:

I need anything resembling office supplies. File cabinets. Wall Posters. Computer looking stuff. (Full Perm or at least Modifiable.)

I need medical looking equipment. (Full Perm or at least Modifiable.)

I need gun lockers, supply crates, and anything military looking. (Full Perm or at least Modifiable.)

I need Gym Equipment. (Full Perm or at least Modifiable.)

My focus right now remains with the battlestar. I am doing my best to get it furnished with just enough stuff to make it feel like a functional battlestar.  I have added 4 different animations around the command table and added animations to the console chairs in CIC.  As of right now you sit in the chairs by sitting on the battlestar emblem on the back of the chair.  I need to rewrite some poseball scripts to fix that. One thing at a time……

Anyway, if you have ANY Full Perm furniture that you feel might be appropriate for the battlestar, please get it to me.  I can add animations to anything that we build, so we are not always forced to purchase what we need. Thanks for listening and keep on buildiing. Find me if you need me.

Prims, Ships, Systems, Scripts, etc.

Hi everyone. This is my first post here on this new looking site so please bear with me. I would like to become more involved with the building/scripting, however my current schedule leaves me with very limited free time. I am browsing the posts and have not found a category dedicated to builds and current sim needs. I will give you what free time I can spare, but I need some direction.  I have been asked to make the battlestar jumpable, which is pretty easy, but I have some degree of difficulty getting the smaller ships to jump with the battlestar if they are rezzed and within the pod. I am certain that this can be overcome. But, as I am reading some of the potential story plots I am wondering what has been decided and what we can consider to be set in stone. Are we on Earth and discovering the Galactica somewhere in space? Are we going to use a Columbia class battlestar?  Somebody please contact me and fill me in so that I can be of some assistance. I miss you guys.
