    ~♡ Hey Hi Hello! ♡~ My name is Bunni or Bun ( I also go by Mochii in someplaces) I am your typical internet weeb. I like anime and playing video games on PC and PS4 I play things like Maplestory 2, Sims 1/2/3/4, Minecraft, Life is Strange, GTA 5, and really whatever catches my eye. I like pink. not pink - but - ̗̀ PINK ̖́- I've been a long time visitor of kokoro, a couple years now I guess. I do tend to take break from SL because of anxiety, but I always come back! I run a couple SL events (Etoile & Ota-Con) and I love to destress and hang out around the school. A lot of times you'll see me hanging around just taking photos. I enjoy photo editing and some graphic design in Photoshop. I'm currently in school for Graphic design and Web Development! It's nice to meet you and I hope to see you around the school!

    This document is a draft! Some information is missing or incomplete. This guide is intended for creators who are making mesh models/textures/audio for Kokoro. We maintain high standards of content to ensure an enjoyable experience for visitors visiting Kokoro. All permanent builds at Kokoro are required to meet these standards for quality assurance purposes. These standards don't apply to temporary builds. Mesh models Visitors should be able to enjoy Kokoro regardless of if their viewers graphics preset is set to Ultra, High, Medium and Low. We do not test/officially support the Lowest graphics preset. Custom LoD models All models must be able to pass the LoD2-64 challenge - No noticeable pop in from the perspective of a user with a LoD setting of 2 and a draw distance of 64m in the context of the objects expected placement. To meet this: Mesh models should always be created with a High, Medium, Low custom mesh model, lowest may be left on generated except on small models (less than 0.5m in any direction) Custom created LoD models must degenerate in a way that considers their surroundings Each LoD model should have approximately ¼ of the vertices of its predecessor. For example, a highest model with 400 vertices would have a medium of ~100, low of around ~25. Land Impact (LI) Maintaining region capacity is important for the continued capacity of Kokoro for it's builds. Land impact of models is multiplied considerably by the volume (length x width x height). Many models can have their LI significantly reduced by splitting the mesh into a linkset of 0.5Li pieces. This also has a performance benefit in allowing smaller parts of a large model to drop to lower lod models faster. When possible, rotating the individual links in the set in the modelling application to fit into a smaller bounding box will also have land impact benefits. The vast majority of models should have 1 material per link, as adding extra materials multiplies the Land Impact significantly. Textures Sizes To avoid texture thrashing (The viewer running out of memory and blurring random textures). UV maps should be space optimized (no large unused areas) and all textures should be kept as small as possible. Alpha Material faces using Alpha Blending are GPU-Heavy and are not to be used on props that are used outside of instance rooms, only Alpha Masking should be used. Aesthetic considerations Textures should be kept simple in keeping with the anime feel. There should be a low level of visual noise and contrast in textures should be reduced towards their average color. Secondlife does not have the best shaders and not all users will use the advanced lighting model, therefore any textures with a reflective/metallic quality should use our faux shiny effect. (Contact for details) Our textures do not have baked shadows to avoid interfering with Advanced Lighting Model, but do have normalized Ambient Occlusion multiplied over the diffuse. Ambient occlusion should be baked with a floor mesh present to ensure the shading looks appropriate for the objects surroundings. Our textures are designed to look natural and easy on the eyes and should almost never have a saturation level above 60. Audio Our audio is designed to ensure that we can have 'quiet' and 'loud' sounds. File normalization To ensure we have control over audio volume, all audio must be normalized to a volume of -0.1db prior to upload. This can be done with software such as Audacity etc. Volume settings Audio in Secondlife is played at a volume from level 0.1 to 1.0. Quiet sounds (eg, a mouse) at Kokoro in general should use volumes between 0.2 and 0.4. Most normal sounds (Eg, bird chirp, door closing thud) should be between 0.4 - 0.6 Any sounds above 0.6 is reserved for loud objects such as Belle (Kokoro's school bell that should be heard island wide). Audio Range limiting Due to a bug in some viewers, even the quietest sounds can sometimes be heard sim wide if not range limited. Therefore, instead of using llPlaySound, the following custom function should be used:-

    With some difficulty, I managed to get around the small issues I found. Games go fine, doing 77 fps which is quite ok. On screen though it's slower, but hey, it's nice to see that it works :3

    I've been trying to get back into the groove of drawing stuff, so I decided to draw some of your avatars! I hope you all like them. I drew everyone I saw early this afternoon, so if you're not there, it's nothing personal! Left to right: Ai, Jinx, Ni, Taru, Twi, Becky Individual files

    ✧Hello everyone!✧ I'm Taruna, nice to meet you all. If you come by Kokoro and I'm sitting in silence, chances are I'm either asleep/afk or just being my introverted self. - I don't always talk much. ✧Nothing personal!✧ However don't be afraid to say hello! I won't kill you! I promise... maybe. UwU Some stuff about me: ⦁ I'm a crazy cat lady who'll be 30 next year. ⦁ I love cats. ⦁ I love to play video games (Final Fantasy XIV currently consumes a lot of my time). ⦁ I love music. ⦁ I love art. ⦁ Naturally I also love Anime & Manga, JP/K-Drama and what not. ✧I look forward to meeting everyone! And hopefully to make some more friends during my stay at the sim.✧ ✧Finally, have a picture of my cat. (Sadly he was put down due to age and the complications that comes with it. He had a long happy life though!)✧

    Hey! I'm the nerdy one who writes the code and makes a lot of the 3D stuff at Kokoro! Obviously I have a love of anime, given what I make, but here are some other things about me:- I like creating things! I'm a software engineer and I can reach ~100 Words per minute! 🔥 I'm actually a dude, and I live in London! I look forward to making friends with you~ ~ Ai

    Hi! I'm Squidwardonachair, or Matthew. Neon introduced me to this place and it seems like a nice place to hang around in! I'm a freelancing artist and epic gamer squid in their early 20s. My aspiration in life is to be the guy who wears the mascot costume. Preferably Squidward. I'm also very new to SL and incomprehensibly shy, so I'm sorry if I goof up or scream in terror if you try to talk to me.

    Hiii, I am nihara the ni, a bunny who came from a snowy town to kokoro but in reallity is a dude from brazil, which is a pretty hot place xD. Nihara is a blind bunny but I've been playing as a chibi ni instead lately, sadly she is too hyperactive to use a guide cane now xD, in any case heres some stuff that I like. Music in general as soon as it makes me happy Learning new skills Spinning pens, staffs and books Roller skating Making random 3D models Sculpting human anatomy Right now i am trying to improve my sculpture skills to become a character sculptor artist, wish me luck! Maybe some day ni might be able to teach people how to sculpt at kokoro too. Here is one of my past anatomy studies. Ni is very friendly so fell free to talk to me ♥
