    My eyes aren’t as good as they use to be… but I didn’t see ‘Opensim Everything’ started by Linda Kellie with 268 members a couple months ago. What I love about this group is there are NO categories to try and decide where your post should ‘properly’ be inserted! HUGGLES ♥

  2. Blender for Opensim is a particularly amazing group filled with useful info for builders of every level. Lots of talented people over there.

    I personally am loving all the info about rigging. Something that was frustratingly obtuse to me for a long time, but Vbinnia Radek
    does a great job breaking it all down.
