RLV

Having reclaimed my fetishes has also encouraged and enabled me to resume my use of RLV restrictions in Second Life. Now, it’s no secret that my main SL viewer on the desktop is Firestorm; however, there are occasions when I simply want to sneak into SL for a bit while I’m on the go. On those occasions, I use my two-years-old Android smartphone and Alina Lyvette’s Lumiya viewer (version 3.4.2, which seems to be the most recent one – please note that the website is now completely empty, save for its banner). Or at least I used to, until this week.

Before anyone says anything, I must point out I’m very much aware of Lumiya’s troubled recent history. Development seems to have stopped altogether way back in 2017, so what new developments it incorporates and implements, and to what extent, is a question that needs answering; in 3D view, animations never worked, and mesh bodies never looked right at all; to top it all off, it was removed from both LL’s Third Party Viewer Directory and Google’s Play Store.

Back in 2014, Sian Pearl (of Chariot and MetaTheodora fame) had announced the release of an RLV mask / spine / drone control system named the Neuropuppet; the initial design was done by Dreampaint Loon – in fact, it was her “Remote Drone Rig”. Seeing that I was experimenting with RLV scripts and drone communications bulbs at the time, she graciously asked me to provide the scripts for the whole system.

Way back in March, I read an interesting post by Antony Fairport, which largely echoes my views on RLV restrictions. There’s a tendency among designers of RLV gear (collars, gags, blindfolds, etc.) to include as many different restriction types in their attachments as possible; even functions that their RL equivalents could not possibly provide.
