Why did I quit Rainbow Sailors Cub, or a drama in one act.

Yesterday i was imposed to sail a “Small” boat (whatever that means, small as in number of land impact? as in number of linked parts? in number of scripts? In Size?) due to complains of the rest of of the fleet,  that i was causing lag due to be sailing a “Huge boat”.

If i never ever had sent any of the boats i use to sail for free to all that sail on that group, i could even understand why they could feel that it was not their bad connections, their bad putters or probably their own choice of boats to sail, draw distance, graphic setup or whatever, that was calling that lag, but my sad bad buildings.

But i sent all my builds to most of them along the time, i felt that in fact nobody even cared to try any of them.

Still I can accept that a 280 land impact boat with rigged sails, even if only made of 90 diff parts linked altogether and using the less laggy script available for sl sailing full perms, running at 26 knots and with the biggest size that sl allows (64mx64Mx64m) could cause some disturbance around, on the small channels where we where sailing.

What i can not accept is the feeling that i’m not welcome to sail my builds on a club that is supposed to be better at not discriminating then the rest.

And that a club where i had lots of fun along the Years, is becoming a fan club for a single type of boat, imposing the same wind, same speed, as a rule.

So better state that for all that wish to sail in their cruises upfront.

To end, i debated in a few seconds that Rainbow Sailors cruise is not for me and the type of cruising i like to do, I can accept the same wind for all rule, i can accept the same speed, I can not accept the same brand.

It was fun but it ended. There are other ways of enjoying sailing in Sl without causing issues to the rest. I’ll going to sail solo, playing GTFO, but cruising in packs i fear is out of my league. The last i want is to cause issues to others but the last ill do is to have to sail what others wish.

I missed Strawberry Singh’s 2015 round of the “What’s Your Digits?” meme, and I do admit it was semi-deliberate, as I had all sorts of personal RL situations (some of them stemming from in-world events) to handle: from eurocrisis-induced financial woes to health issues and everything in between. Then (this year) came childbirth, with all […]

Avastar has progressed to RC12 and I’m in the middle of creating facial expressions to convey the mood of my Bento Avatar. When upgrading Avastar i somehow ran into an issue that caused my Rig to export animations that flipped the facial bones upside down. I sent a bug report and we spent hours trying…Read…
