About That Inventory. Part 1. KEY WORDS


Keywords & More ways to quickly delete unneeded items.
 ( Trust me, it's very, very satisfying to see those numbers drop) 

This is my second or third revision of this post. As time moves on, items become irrelevant *See prim shoes*  

I hope you find this helpful.  Also please, if I left out something, drop me a comment so I can update!

KEY WORDS

If I am doing a major clean out or even if I want my #'s to drop quickly I start with keywords. Using these in the search bar will help eliminate my numbers quickly and efficiently.
Here are the ones I used. If you know more please drop me a line in the comments section. I really love to help others and your help will help me help. Too many helps? Aah well.


 

  • DELETE - 
This is usually an unpacking script, with 'Delete me' in the name.
  • CONFIG
Useless (to us) note cards to configure a script in packages. 

  • UNPACK -
 This is usually a script left in a folder. It is used to unpack your item and is useless to you once it is unpacked.

  • HOLD -
 Usually, an animation/pose used for holding a bag that has been unpacked. (Be careful here that you do not delete a hold for a purse, pet or stuffie.)

  • BAG -  
This is usually a pose/animation or script for holding items while it is unpacked. Most designers name their own differently, so try catching their names as you unpack items and make a list for future reference.
 
  • DEMO -
 If you have purchased the item, delete the demo of that same item. If you have a hard time deciding and need to keep those demo's make a folder just for them.  Title it #DEMO. this way it should scoot to the top of whatever folder you put it in.


  • THANK
Usually, a note card with a word of thanks for your purchase, toss it unless you are super sentimental.

  • READ
Usually, a note card some instructions on how to dress.  Learn what it says then toss it unless you have a super short term memory.

  • IMPORTANT -
More instructions found usually in a note card on what to do or not to do. ^ take the same advice as above.

  • INFO
Usually a note card with information on the product, store, MP etc.

  • INSTRUCTIONS -
Again usually a note card, unless you really need to remember how to do what it is instructing then you can bin these as well.

  • HOW TO
Usually a note card but sometimes it is a texture on how to use a product.

  • OBJECT
As I am not a builder, any plain Object in my inv is usually just a prim box I made for photos. Do you have random prim's you made over the years?  *Ember holds out the trash bag*

  • POLICY
Usually a note card with information on the store's policies, copyright info etc. Read it over then either delete it or not, up to you.

  • INVITE -
A group invite script or note card that comes in some packages. Mind you don't delete your friends 22nd wedding invitation (Or your own )

  • GROUP -  
Usually, a note card explaining how to join a group. Could also be a script just straight up inviting you.

  • ABOUT -
 Most times it is a note card with info about the product or store info.

  • COPYRIGHT -
A note card with info about the designer's copyrighted materials. Read it over well.

  • GIVE -
Check under scripts. I found tons of 'Give on attach scripts' hanging around from opened boxes.

  • PLAY -
This could also be a script or an animation for holding & opening your boxes.

🌟Time to move on while having a little funeral to all (OK, most) of your pre mesh items.🌟


  • ALPHA LAYERS -
If you ONLY use a mesh body, you can safely rid your self of all alpha layers that come inside your clothing packaging. Your mesh body won't work with a dress alpha anyway right? Plus you should have enough alpha cuts on your mesh body hud to make almost anything fit.


  • EXTRA APPLIERS -  
If you wear a mesh body and ONLY that mesh body you can begin the purge by deleting all other body appliers.
Example: I ONLY USE MAITREYA
so I deleted everything for Belleza, Slink & TMP.



  • SYSTEM SKINS -  
Wear a mesh head & Mesh Body? Ever looking back? No! Then you can safely delete these.

  • SYSTEM EYES
If you use a mesh head these probably will not work the best for you any longer. 

  • SYSTEM TATTOO'S -
 If you only wear a mesh body then you can safely rid yourself of those system layer body tatt's

  • SYSTEM LAYER CLOTHING
 If you only wear a mesh body then you can safely rid yourself of ALL your system layer clothing. I know, but really? really? will you ever take off that beautiful mesh body for that outfit again? OK, save a few.


  • PRIM SHOES / BOOTS
 πŸ””The funeral bells toll loudest for this section but come on, most of them will not work now. Remember cankles? colour matching? Time to say good bye.πŸ””


  • STANDARD SIZES
If you have lots of time to kill you can start removing all old standard size clothing. XL/L/M/S/XS/XXS
Some sizes you can stuff your mesh body into, so be aware of what size might fit before taking on this project.

Hope this helps a little.  I will get more into proper sorting another day.

Until then Kisses,
