Varregion with different terrain textures? Nope

A varregion has to use the same set of terrain textures everywhere – that’s what I learned from this post by Isis Ophelia. Several users say they found out that the regions take the last texture loaded.

To have different textures on region you can either use individual regions instead of var, or build the terrain with mesh.

Miney wrote an overview on how to create offsim objects.

RoboGirl 0.1

An early version of a RoboGirl – from Jacques Offenbach’s 1881 opera “Tales of Hoffmann”: it is a tale about Olympia, an automaton created by the scientist Spalanzani, who introduces Olympia as his daughter.
Based on a story from E.T.A. Hoffmann that first appeared in 1816. So our ideas in 2014 are quite revolutionary ;-)
More about the opera and story here.

Don’t miss when Olympia starts to sing at 3:40 min. And at 6:18 you can even recognize a famous Second Life parody video:
