    Ok I just tried SL for the first time using the Linux version, selecting a default Harajuku style when making an account.

    Spent 20 minutes walking around; I couldn't see myself, I guess while it downloaded graphics for the first time or something, but everyone else claimed I was naked.

    Is the Linux version that buggy, or where they playing some kind of joke?

    That's a weird fucking error... sounds like a SL-side error...

    Well it certainly added some fun to what I expected to be a dull tutorial.

    I hope it isn't the client, think I'll try again in the morning.

    @warren: That doesn't make sense. SL errors, especially errors of the avatar nature, tend to be global, rather than localized. It'd be like Woodstock without the drugs if everyone was naked.

    @radian: Next time you try, right click on your avatar, select 'Take Off >' then select 'Clothes >'. If you have any options... then either you somehow are wearing invisible clothes, or Warren was right and your avatar has a funky server bug, or people are messing with you. If it's the last one, I have weapons you can use. :D

    it was friday. friday is always fun day with asset nonsense and things not rezzing. if it was localised, it could be a bandwith issue.

    I've lost count of the times I've stood in the middle of an empty sim with no clothes on, a shoe up my bum, inventory refusing to come through, and no bandwidth issues at all. SL server-side errors, in my experience, come in all shapes and sizes...

    @warren: Really? I have never had that happen at all... strange. Are you on a Linux build too?

    You were right, frenchbloke, I was visible today.

    it happens. :(

    Good rule of thumb - if your av is invis to you, assume you are naked and log off. Clear your cache and relog, then rebake your textures from the client menu.

    Rebake is your friend.

    I can't remember how to turn on the client menu... the hidden one... I know there's an easy command; someone clue me in?

    I'm sorry, I know I should be able to find this in the help pages, but I'm in Japan and the SL help pages usually freeze up on me for some reason.
