Created a little but open Corner Store (20×20 meters) in Second Life, I decided that this architecture needs some green to give it some style. I started to create a plant tub I wanted in each corner of the store. While making these I though that is fun and started to create several and differend plant tubs in my little sandbox in the sky.
Thought the following screenshot is funny. The story above did end there that I became surrounded by green in my sandbox but well.. I wont stop creating more of them.. :)
Someone is using parts of my products and now I get customer support requests of third-party products
Today someone in SL wrote me that one of my products wouldn´t work and he asked friendly for help.
He talked about a Heart….
When someone asking me for help related to the Product with a Heart then I usualy think they mean my Heart Tipjar I made.
This is the only Product I sell and made with a Heart Sculpy. So yea I am creator of my Tipjar and each component, including the Heart.
But soon I noticed the guy who was asking for customer support didnt talk about a Tipjar but instead of that about a Xploder.
And I can tell you I never made an Xploder.
So what you see above is an Xploder I never made but I am the creator of the heart. Which means someone is unlinking my product probably out of the 0 L$ Tipjar Demo I have on the Marketplace.
But the biggest problem is someone who ripped this heart is linking it so that I am the creator of her new product the xploder.
So the person who was asking for customer support first didn´t believe me that I am not the creator of the xploder. But soon he did as I did show him my SL Marketplace Product List.
Then I searched for something I found in the permission window.. “”REMOVED DUE TO A FALSE SUSPICION… see comment section””. Google helped me and soon I found the marketplace Store of this person. This person has some product with my heart and “only transfer” on the Marketplace. The fun thing is I never made this heart “transfer permission”. Which looks like she is using permission exploits and copybot.
Not enough… As I now found her Marketplace Store I also found her blog but more importend her inworld store…
First I noticed she has not only some of my hearts on her Marketplace Store but she has also some of my hearts inworld with differend permission.
Above you can see a screenshot of my heart in her xploder product with just “copy” permission. Its funny.. I never made it copy.
The heart is in my product released as mod/copy. So she can defenetly change permissions of my objects which must be an exploit.
Looking around there I found more of my hearts also with transfer permission. So I dont know what she is doing there but she has objects of me as transfer only and copy only permission.
Again.. looks like she can change permissions on my objects and she can sell it. Otherwise there would come another person and asking for customer support for products I never made. I am the creator as she seems to be someone stupid and linking the objects so that my heart makes the whole object created by me.
Sure I am pissed and sure I did write a support ticket. But we all know what LL will do.. maybe nothing.
I also wrote the copybotter and asking some questions but I believe there will be no answers and guilt feelings. Therefor…
I dont give a shit about sharing names of silly and fraudulent avatars…
Here is the name of her and of her virtual company:
“REMOVED DUE TO A FALSE SUSPICION… see comment section”
You better google her and check out if she also used parts of your content. ;)
Finished the naming and shaming. Greetings
EDIT: The whole thing seems to be more complicated. Another person maybe copybotted my heart and sold it to differend creators which I suspected to be the griefers. Please read comment section to understand…

This is a fresh Product out of my latest Mesh Project I´ve been working on.
I wrote a Blogpost about the Project.
Playing with MoGraph MoSpline in Cinema 4d and creating differend mathematical spline clones and arrangements led me to new ideas of forms, shapes and so. Its funny which features of a tool can inspire me.
After a while I had a formula which copys my object (the black crossbars) to 180 degrees like a half circle and first I associated it with those japanese fans if I would add a half and thin cylindric for the fabrics.
I did but I am not sure how it happened.. I soon had a really differend inspiration. I just added a thin and long cube under the object and then I though it could be a pretty cool room divider. And so was my mission born.
I still can create a japanese fan with those techniques some day but now I really want to create differend room divider from this idea first.
I finished a beta object and exported it as collada file. I also created my own physical mesh which is just a single cube as this should be enough for a room divider.
I logged in to the beta grid to check things out and make some test uploads. The end-product has a land impact of 4. I think this is really ok and made me somewhat happy.
The overall product will be black with some little shinyness but only the fabrics them self will have textures and I believe I will create differend styled room dividers out of it. So technically I am already happy about the result. I just have some trouble baking the fabrics at the moment. I need to find a bug. The baked fabric texture looks ok to me but when I apply it inworld it is black. I dont know but I will find the problem I guess. When its finished I will upload it to my SL Marketplace Store.
EDIT: I fixed the problem with the baked fabrics texture so that the product is ready for wrap up soon. Here is a screenshot inworld in Second Life:

How to use and change the Settings of the Product:
1. Rez the Tipjar.
2. Wait until the Initialization of the Tipjar is finished.
It´s done when you see “All configurations loaded. Tipjar ready!” in your Chat.
3. First let´s customize your Tipjar now. Right click the Tipjar and click “edit”.
4. Go to the content tab.
5. There you will find the tipjarscript and the tipjarconfig
6. Make a copy of the “tipjarconfig” notecard and take it to your Inventory, just so that you have a Backup
7. Read carefully the configuration notecard. There you will find deeper Instructions and all about what you can change and how you do it.
8. After changing the configuration be sure that you click “save”!
9. Wait again until the Tipjar is initialized.
It´s done when you see “All configurations loaded. Tipjar ready!” in your Chat.
The Tipjar will restart and initialize your tipjarconfig always if you changed and saved the config.
But after that, the Tipjar is ready to use.
When you made some Settings in the “tipjarconfig” File… and if you are happy with all Settings..
Just duplicate your Tipjar if you need more then one in your Club or Location. As you made already Settings,
the Duplicates will now have the same Settings.
You can also save your tipjarconfig in your Inventory after finishing your Settings. That is the way you can put
it back to a new rezzed Tipjar in case you did deleted every Tipjar from your Land. Good because you dont have
to make these Settings again. But be sure that you only have one tipjarconfig in your Object.
Q: The Tipjar is asking for Permission Debit. What the heck is going on? Can I trust you?
A: Yes, in fact you can trust me. Permission Debit is always needed in Second Life when a Script
want to take money from agent’s account. In the Case of Tipjar´s it is usualy so that your
Staff is logging into the Tipjar but you are the Owner of the Tipjar. If now someone (A Donator)
pays your Staff, the Money first goes through your Avatar and then to the Person who is logged
in to your Tipjar. So basicly the Script just ask you to get permission for this Function and to forward it
to your Staff or anyone who logged into your Tipjar. Anyway be careful in Second Life. Only give permission
if you trust the Creator of the Script you got.
