My mother tells me that when I was five or six years old, I made a paper mache Christmas ornament for her in Sunday school. My sister calls it "The Ugly Ball" and jokingly (yet strangely co ...

Well OK, I will gracefully accept your judgement and keep virtual maille out of this competition. I now wonder where on this site may I post virtual maille? I guess in discussion threads it's OK, bu ...

Certainly virtual maille is a different animal, and I understand your perspective that it should not be directly compared to real life maille. However, I would like to do some creating with virtual m ...

About the silver crosses posted above, I have studied the full Persian cross a bit and have my own (simpler and less elegant) design that uses one ring size. I have a friend who makes crosses just li ...

I'm In, and I have some questions.

1. Can I add electronics to my maille?

2. Can I make virtual maille if it is simulated with Newtonian physics?

The rules appear to be a bit vague on v ...

Hmm, something suitable for wielding that flogger you use on birthday club members caught with their pants down?

Hehe, while I do like the way you think, the flogger is going to be part of my Steam ...

I think this could be a nice idea for trying a new weave and its needed AR before going crazy with going through the mandrels, wire sizes and ending with the result, that it was the wrong AR again.

Question; I have seen simulations where the rings go through each other, making the simulated weave impossible in real (or just with this AR) how goes that in second life? Is it possible for the rings ...

Oh yes, nothing beats pliers and rings for verification of a new weave. I'm not suggesting that we abandon that fact, just hoping to spread the word that physical simulation of maille is now practica ...

Yeah, it goes through 3 rings on one side of the ring and 1 on the other, right?

Yes, correct. I am not familiar with oops besides seing a tut and a finger ring based on it. Looks nice! Thanks f ...

Augh! Oops! correction: I did not get the full persian weave quite right in the CGI image. The links do not pass thru the "eye" of the FP element, so it would fall apart in RL. Fortunate ...

I made some CGI images in Second Life of the cross. Interestingly, I messed up the first try and may have discovered a SECOND way to hook things up, just with the persian segments reversed, so bidire ...
