Ebbe Altberg & Third-Party Dev Meeting

I wanted to sit in on this week’s Third-Party Developers’ meeting. I wanted some footage of the meeting to use as an opening for my summary of the meeting. I was late. Seems to be a pattern. But, I was planning to use Pantera Północy’s video of the meeting. It comes out Saturday morning.

I was surprised to find Ebbe Altberg talking! Whoa! So, I brought up OBS and recorded the rest of the meeting. The first 15 minutes are missing. Those minutes are in Pantera’s Video, which came out before I got finished.

I’ve been having audio problems with the SL recordings. I got some of that cleaned up. I still had problems but the audio is intelligible and better.

I thought about indexing the video. I usually do. But, Thursday is an RL busy day and I already have a work-related video rendering in the background. My completer is WAY sluggish and all 4 cores are pegged at 100% heating up to 57. This one of the few times I hear the fans pick up speed. So, I’ll do the index later when I don’t have to deal with pauses.

The video is jerky in places. I was recording and had the rendering paused. But, I was still seeing a hit in the viewer. My i5-6600 did pretty well considering the load on the system.

See the thread in the SL Forum, Ebbe Altberg talking at the Third-Party Dev Meeting.

Second Life News Bits 2018 w11

We get just ‘bits’ of news today (Thursday-Friday) as there is no Content Creators’ meeting this week. There is a third-party developer meeting Friday, I think.


Tuesday there was no Deploys post until late in the day. The main channel was restarted. No rollout of new software. I had guessed that was the case.



Blue Steel got a new version # Internal changes.

Le Tigre and Magnum got version # Which has Internal fixes and more simulator logging improvements.

From the Beta Server UG in Aditi, we get word work is being done to find out and fix the problem of some Aditi inventories not syncing up for weeks. Continue reading

Integrated Animation Overriders … A what?

Mesh Body Addicts posted about Vista Animations (VA) new Bento Head animations. The post content is actually within in a video (vlog), Vista Diana & Lia.

The explanation she gives of the existing onion-skin animations used before Bento is not wrong, but most of the techies will disagree with it. If you are not into the tech, it is good enough to get you by. Besides, Animesh and Bakes-On are coming and likely to change much of this anyway.

The word in the video is there is a Bento Full Body AO coming. As it is now I have an AO for my body, the stands, sits, walks, etc. I have another for my new mesh head. And another for my hands. I am assuming VA is combining body, hands, and head into one AO. Jump to time mark 18:00± to get an idea of what the coming AO will look like in operation. Continue reading

Second Life Did What?

They dropped the price of land. Wow!

Goodbye Mystical Fea / Au Revoir

Goodbye Mystical Fea / Au Revoir

OK, it is not a major thing, just 10%. But, that is significant. Also, the steps up increasing land owned are smaller. So, it is cheaper to increase the amount of land you own.

You can read about it here: MORE LAND FOR LESS MONEY?

For Premium Members they have doubled the allotment of free land on the mainland. Premium Members can have 1,024m2 of land tier free. That is a 32x32m square of land or 105×105 ft. This is twice the previous allotment.

It won’t change my life. But, I will think more about getting land. But, having JD on one side and Mercede’s Beach Haven on the other would make it hard to move away.

OpenCollar Peanuts

It is really awkward trying to talk about OpenCollar and be clear on which OpenCollar version is being talked about.  So, I call the one I am talking about Wendy’s OpenCollar (WOC) or Peanut (POC). The other OC scripts, Nirea and Athaliah branch, are OC 7.x names.

The reason I am trying to be clear is an update has come out, Peanut 9. So, getting the right update for your items is important. You have to know which you need.



I subscribe to both OC channels, OpenCollar and Fire Flower. One channel will tell you about OC v7.1 and avoid referring to Wendy’s Peanut version as OC. If you say OC, they treat it as if you could only be talking about the Nirea and Athaliah branch OC.

The plain WOC stuff is mostly free, so redelivery is not really necessary. Plain WOC is basically the scripts and some very basic collars and cuffs. The pretty stuff worn by the hot kinky women is usually custom-made stuff like the things Virtual Disgrace and others sell. Those need to be redelivered on occasion.

So, the vending system providing redelivery just changed, this month. The one used for Wendy’s ‘retail’ items has changed to Casper. Continue reading

Second Life News 2018 w11


We didn’t get a Deploys post this week. My main channel region did get a restart. My region is running version # This is a version released the end of February. So, I assume my region was just restarted not updated.

But, no one knows much about what is going on. Simon Linden at the Server-Scripting UG has nothing for us.

We’ll see if there is a restart on the RC channels tomorrow.

Pink Rain..

Pink Rain..


The main viewer is version This is the update we got last week, week #10.

Second Life Love Me Render Viewer version – Last updated in week #10.

Second Life Media Update Viewer version – This is a new version out this week. The previous update was released in week #8.

Second Life Project 360 Snapshot Viewer version – This is the version released in week #10. See my updates from last week for details.

Second Life Project Animesh Viewer version – This is new this week. The previous version came out in week #4.

We were supposed to get a new project viewer for Bakes-On. We didn’t so that suggests it did not make it through QA.

Also, an EEP (Enhanced Environment Project) project viewer is expected.

I’m pressed for time. So, gotta go. More details when I dig them out.

Plus, my good mouse died… R.A.T. 7 RIP. 🙁  SUCKS!

Blossom’s Who? Moved Where?

Blossoms sent out a notice their store has moved to a new location. She now has a pretty store. Totally filled with strippible clothes. You know, the ones with the corny promo line, ‘OMG! So unexpected!’ Something Little Annie Fanny might say. Which as corny as it sounds to me is pretty much what happens… the unexpected part.

The region is also an interesting place to explore. Pretty and a little kinky. So, take a hunk of guy with you… or a couple of ‘em. (MMF or MFF – didn’t see FF) Buy a dress, avoid the ants, walk out to the pool or beach house and let him think he is seducing you.

New Blossom’s Store – 3/2018

If you find it, there is a Fountain of Youth. If only Ponce de León had known… (Actually, there is no historical evidence he was ever looking for or believed there was such a fountain. But, why let facts ruin a good story… the journalistic motto of our day.)

There are some good animations there. Some are by Eline Serendipity, owner of Mystic Fantasies (MPIn-WorldRP Area). The animations have great female and male hip movement, something that is hard to animate in SL. Wheee, so hot!  Continue reading

Second Life Content Creators’ Meeting 2018 w10

Getting video of these meetings is a PITA. Medhue (1:27 PM) and I (1:08 PM) both were late getting to the meeting. Medhue’s audio has reverb… which generally comes from room echo… the combination of the sound source (talker) and reflected sound from walls reaching the mic at slightly different times. There are no echoes or room reverb in Second Life™. So, the computer’s speaker output has to be fed back via an open mic or duel channels in the recording app. Neither appears to be the case for Medhue…

I got there a bit earlier. I recorded the meeting, so the source is on my computer. I can edit it and clean up the audio. So, this week I’ll use my video. It takes some time to clean up the video and audio. Plus, Thursday is a busy day for me, RL. So, mine comes out later, like Saturday or Sunday.

The first thing you are likely to notice in the video is Vir Linden’s voice is messed up. In Medhue’s video, Vir Linden’s voice is also messed up but in a different way. So, the problem is in the connections or our computers. I have yet to figure out what’s up with mine.

I’ve cleaned the audio up a bit. But, there is only so much repair work one can do.  Continue reading
