So you're new to SLVC?

Postby Vinderex » Fri Apr 13, 2018 8:27 pm

Hello everyone! I noticed that there's been quite a few newbies lately, and I know that starting out can be tough, so I wanted to offer a few little tips on getting yourself out there, as well as touching on a few common newbie mistakes and things you should know that may or may not be covered in the actual rules.

So then, without further ado -

-A name can say a lot. If you're just starting fresh on SL, then please PLEASE don't choose names like 69pussyisgreat69 or omgEatmeplz etc. At best, you'll have many people immediately assuming that you're slutty, or at worst, they'll immediately assume you're a troll, and you might end up getting banned on your first tiny little mess up. And then of course you might also eventually want to visit other places in SL as well (It's a vast world after all), and such names will look even worse there.

-Most of the club's patrons are furries. While humanoids are perfectly welcome too, you can expect to see some bias against you at first if you're using a humanoid avatar. Yes, this is one of those unfortunate things that really shouldn't be so, but sadly it is. The reason is because trolls/griefers who hit the sim are almost always in humanoid avatars, so people tend to go on high alert when an unfamiliar one shows up. That said though, once you've been around a day or two and people know you're going to behave yourself, they'll warm up to you, and you'll be fine in whatever avatar you like.

-Don't use deformed, excessively shiny or otherwise intentionally hideous avatars. Such avatars are pretty much universally considered a troll's uniform, so you'll immediately be seen as one, and if you're not booted out on sight, then you likely will be after the slightest mess-up.

-Vore is generally considered an intimate act. There's a handful of people who would gladly grab and gulp a stranger the moment they show interest. But in the long run, taking the time to chat, make friends, and get to know people will make your time at SLVC much more enjoyable, and make you more likely to be included in vore activities. Don't get frustrated if someone doesn't immediately pounce you.

-Don't be shy, but don't be pushy either. Say hello. Ask if anyone's hungry if you like. If someone catches your eye, then send them an IM. Gotta meet people somehow, right? That said though, if you try and don't get a response, then one or two more tries might not hurt, but if you continue to be dismissed, then move on to someone else, and try again another day. Continuous pestering will do nothing but ruin a good reputation.

-While it's not required, using Firestorm in place of the standard Second Life viewer is highly recommended. Among other things, Firestorm will give you RLV functionality, which most of the vore tools use. Firestorm can be downloaded at http://www.firestormviewer.org/

-Want to be a pred? Great! There are several options for doing so. The three most commonly used vore tools are CCC VRPS, Vore HUD 2, and Terry's Extra belly. There's also a free belly which can be found in the shop area just outside of SLVC.
--CCC VRPS is pay-what-you-want, and can also be gotten for free if you can't afford to pay. While it's probably the most customizable of all the vore systems, it's also primarily focused towards experienced modders, so it may be a little more difficult to use than the other vore systems out there.
--Vore HUD 2 costs 500L. Currently it has 5 eating animations, and 4 release animations, as well as attachments such as a bulging belly, sticky tongue, etc. This one was made by me, so of course it's my favorite. :P Also, if you're unable to afford 500L, then I'm willing to haggle the price, so feel free to message me.
--Terry's Extra Belly. In all honesty I don't know very much about this one. It DOES look nice though. Belly animations are smooth, and the internal view is nice. Got a decent set of sounds and animations too. The biggest downside is the price tag. 5000L. If you can afford it, you very well may like it. If money's an issue though, then one of the others may serve you better.

That's pretty much all I've got to say. :3 Welcome to SLVC, and most of all, have fun!

As someone who's been on SL for years passively, and skirted around SLVC since it's younger days as a beach side bar in front of a temple looking structure, this is a really nice invitation to see. I've never actually involved myself with the community much, but I might just go ahead and try to drop in and test the waters, maybe haggle for that vore hud and add one more predator to the mix of people too.

I'm kind of interested in this. Can anyone give me tips on this?
Typically I'm shy when chatting online in servers like this. (Posting on forums is a little different, lol)
I've never even played SL and I randomly saw the promo and got interested. Is it still alive?

Very much alive, in fact! I haven't been able to get on for a few weeks, but just checked in tonight and there's so many people in the SLVC club right now that I'm lagging out, lol

I'm glad it's still alive. Sadly though, I did try and my computer seems to be too low end to run it smoothly. So I may have to wait a while, but hopefully I'll be able to try again soon.

Did you check your graphics settings? In my experience the auto-adjust it does the first time you launch tends to go a little too high. And even with good hardware and properly adjusted settings, you're probably not going to be perfectly smooth everywhere you go anyways, and needing time for stuff to load around you is perfectly normal, but it'll go faster once you've given it time to build up a cache. Have to keep in mind that pretty much everything you're seeing has to be downloaded on the spot, so arriving at new areas or being in a crowd WILL slow you down, that's just a fact of SL that we all eventually get used to, pretty much :P

This looks interesting, a friend in my local kink community recommended SL for vore, so I thought I'd see what this SL thing is.
But it's all foreign language to me. What's a 'vore tool'? What's an RLV? I figured it would be just like any other game where
you log in and select options for what you want to be or do?

They're scripted tools that have been made to help with vore RP. Dumbing it down to bare basics, they add several buttons to your HUD, which will allow you to eat others (though prey has to give permission in some way or another due to SL's limitations.)
Getting more specific... Since it's currently not possible to actually attach someone else to you, or place them inside of you, these systems try to simulate it as closely as possible, and most of the time they do a pretty good job at it. Most of them work by "seating" both the pred and prey on some kind of object which then plays an eating animation, and then hides the prey away in a "stomach" which is hidden under the ground. The pred will also be wearing an attachment on their belly which expands when they eat someone.
Of course you don't HAVE to use one to be able to do vore RPing in SL, but if you like having some extra visuals instead of just plain text, then vore tools can provide that.

CornishKnight wrote:What's an RLV?

RLV is short for Restrained Love Viewer. It started out as a modified SL that would allow certain actions normally requiring permission to be forced onto you by others, and also added some extra "restraints" such as muffling and/or garbling your chat and blurring your vision, etc. Originally it was intended for BDSM play, but lots of others began using it for other purposes such as creating teleporting systems, or enhancing games, combat, etc. so it became popular enough that almost all third-party SL viewers now include RLV functionality.
Within the vore community, it's primarily used for stuff like grabbing prey without them having to take any sort of action to allow you to do so, and then locking them into place so that they can't escape through normal means.
Oh, and if you're worried about just any random person being able to grab you, don't be. Simply enabling RLV alone won't allow for just anybody to come and have their way with you. You can get set up as you please so that you can allow only trusted friends, or only allow certain actions, etc. And there's also ways to break free in the event that someone does come along and force you into something you don't want. You won't be vulnerable to random grabs from anyone and everyone unless you specifically set yourself up that way. Think of it as not so much opening yourself up to have stuff done to you without permission as simply giving permission in advance.

CornishKnight wrote:I figured it would be just like any other game where you log in and select options for what you want to be or do?

Yeah, on its own, SL is basically a chat program with graphics. The thing that sets it apart though is that practically EVERYTHING was made by other players, and it has creative tools necessary for making stuff of your own too, assuming you have the skill. And I don't mean just making objects and buildings etc. There's scripting/programming too. So with that in mind, pretty much anything imaginable is possible.
And being a world built by its players naturally means there's plenty of other perverts like us doing their share of creating stuff to cater to their interests too. :lol:

Alright, I give in.

I'm too foolish to fully comprehend this new and vast land. How does one find these tools?

As well as possibly some suggestions on avatar customization. Unless I just buy one. Which works too. I dunno.

(Also unless these tools are simply built in. If so then I am truly foolish.)

(Yup! I am foolish!)
EXCELLENT!
