  1. No more missed connections

    We've developed a new notification system!

    You will automatically receive an in-world message when you receive a notification on our forum.

    Get the attention of others

    You can generate notifications for others in many ways:

    • @'ing them in. Hey @niharanini you reading this?
    • Quoting them in a topic
    • Sending them a private message
    • Writing on their wall

    You can also subscribe to threads, or sections of the forum and receive notifications on those too!

    That's all!

    Hope you like the new notifications feature~

  2. About Seiiki

    Seiiki is the town where students and staff of Kokoro reside.

    You'll meet many people in Seiiki's bars and clubs, and bathe and unwind in its natural hotsprings.

    Climb up through the bamboo forest and you'll be able to connect with Kokoro's many spirits at our Shinto Shrine.

    A nod to the past

    Seiiki is Japanese for Sanctuary.

    Kokoro Academy was originally a small parcel neighboring Kokoro Sanctuary. It was a small anime community floating in the sky where people lived and hung out together~

    So what's new?

    After a long time, we've started to mesh Seiiki!

    Before:-

    After

    We'll soon be meshing many parts of Seiiki and decorating it to look nice. We're also developing new trees that should bring about that 'Anime Opening' spring feeling!

    Some pictures of planned areas as they are now:-

    River Bridge

    We plan to have a river flowing here. We're standing at the new planned spawn (A helipad) where visitors to Kokoro are flown in for the first time~

    This building will one day be meshed and host our hotsprings! It was designed by Macrina Crescendo.

    Further up the path you'll find the bars and clubs of Seiiki, along with a small convenience store. You'll also walk through here to get to our Shrine and the Cable car station!

    One of our town's buildings is already meshed! It was made by Minny! (Textures pending)

    There are many other areas of the town to discover, but I'll post about those later as we work on them more 🙂

    You can travel between Seiiki and Kokoro Academy by using our Cable Car. One line is in service of a planned two at this time.

    That's all for now! ♥

    I have been continually impressed by the detail I see. I believe you to be a perfectionist and because of that I would like to offer my eyes and clicks to find anomalies. I have noticed a few but with the sim under construction I am not sure what is "complete".

    Thank you 🤗

    There are definitely a lot of bugs and imperfections around the school. Many parts of the Sim date back to 2014 when I was learning to create mesh and script.

    I do try to keep track and keep a list, but I definitely can forget and miss things so it can't hurt to point them out if you think they've been forgotten 🙂


  4. Seiiki (the town island) has a helipad which is going to be the area where visitors arrive on Kokoro's islands for the first time.

    I've been considering having a sort of Airport terminal style area that first time visitors to the sim spawn. It would sort of be an out of character area where people can be briefed on visiting Kokoro, perhaps with an anime shop area that people could set up their first avatar and then board an in-character flight to get to Seiiki. The area could be an opportunity to 'connect' Kokoro to other sims in SL.

  5. Hello everyone, are you doing well?

    I am just writing to let everyone know that I am particularly busy this month, there is a lot going on. I am in the process of buying my first home in real life and soon I will probably have to start the moving process. Me and Ni have also been busy making new products that should help keep the school funded for a long time.

    There's a lot of things I'd like to do for the school this year. I'd like to make some headway on the town mesh, and get creators club up and running! I know that some people have been wanting help making their clubs and groups too.

    Well, that's all for now. Just indicating I'm alive!

  6. Read this topic to answer any questions you might have regarding adult content

    You may encounter adult content at Kokoro Academy

    Kokoro Academy is an Adult (A) listed sim in SecondLife. It is only possible to access our sim by registering your SecondLife account as being 18 and over and opting into adult content by enabling it in your viewer preferences. The Adult Rating is also displayed in search results and in the region's title bar, and on the world map.

    Keeping the above in mind, you can reasonably expect that you may encounter adult content including but not limited to themes of sex and violence in our region.  It is advised that you visit Kokoro Academy only if you tolerate this content.

    With that said, in general, most topics and themes at Kokoro are not adult in nature and in fact we do not want visitors who are here just for sex. We have many guests and friends who are not interested in adult topics and usually when we are made aware we will usually endeavor to be considerate of them and expect the same of our guests.

    Questions?

    If you have any further queries feel free to leave them below!

  7. So, it seems that streaming works for some and not for others.

    There are some things that I would like to try, that involve changing how the server gets data from OBS

    For now I will leave the service running so those who it does work for can use it. I'll work on a new screen in 1-B with some changes and we'll see what happens

    Thanks for testing everyone ^^

    Hello everyone!

    I am pleased to announce that new Live-Streaming functionality is now in Open Beta.

    Everyone is welcome to come test the functionality.

    With our screen you can:-

    • Share what you're up to with others
    • Host lessons with videos
    • Have movie nights!

     

    How to stream to the screen (3 minutes)

     

    1. Setup OBS Studio
       
      1. Download and install OBS Studio
      2. Download and extract our Stream Profile on your computer
      3. In OBS Studio, Import the Kokoro Academy - Classroom 1-A profile by going to Profile > Import in the top menu and choosing the extracted folder.
         
    2. Start the server
       
      1. Go to Classroom 1-A in-world (First floor, left of main entrance)
      2. Pull down the screen, and select 'Stream'
      3. Wait for the screen to indicate the server has started.
         
    3. Stream using the imported profile
       
      1. In OBS Studio, select the Streaming Profile you imported (Profile -> Kokoro Academy - Class 1-A)
      2. Ensure that you see an image and not a black square in OBS.
        You may need to set up a Display Source or use the 32bit version if no image.
      3. Click Start Streaming. You will see a green light when you are live.

    That's it! Enjoy streaming to the screen!

    This feature is still being tested. Let me know your experiences with it!
