This is coming along nicely. Simon and Oz Linden have started using it in the AGNI grid. You have to have an EEP Viewer to see the change, but, soon the RC viewer will go main and EEP will be an official feature of SL.
At the Server-Scripting UG meeting I arrived using the Firestorm viewer. The sky looked very different.
EEP Sky no EEP Viewer OCt 2018
Using region defaults I got this odd result. At first, I was trying to figure out what I was last doing that messed things up.
Then Simon explained what had changed. Switching over to the EEP Viewer I could see the new sky with a pumpkin moon.
EEP_001 – My landing point 128,128 EEPTesting, ADITI – Nice moon.
The feature is still only working in the preview grid, ADITI, and requires use of a project viewer: Second Life Project EEP Viewer version 18.104.22.1680121. (release notes) You’ll find the download links in Alternate Viewers. This is a bump up from the initial confidential links released only to those participating in the Content Creators’ UG.
EEP_002 – Oh WOW.
This is a PROJECT viewer and thus is more likely to have bugs. So, it is not a viewer for daily use and is a bit risky. Continue reading →
Enhanced Environment Project or EEP has begun testing (9/20/2018). The server-side code and inventory changes are only in place on Aditi, the preview grid. You also need the not-yet-project viewer. Which you can get here: OSX, Win-64, and Win-32.

These versions of the EEP viewer do NOT have the animesh code. However, the EEP enabled server code does have the animesh code. So, while you can see animesh animating in EEP regions you have to be using the Animesh RC viewer, which means you can’t see the EEP changes.
Confused? Think one or the other. Not both at the same time.
Not many attending last Friday… Some news mostly updates.
The Bugsplat RC Viewer should be identical to default viewer. The only difference is it uploads crash reports to the Bugsplat system. The Lindens are wrapping up their evaluation. There is no information pre-evaluation on where this is going. Oz Linden through it was going well. But, until the numbers and Linden-users’ evals are in no can know.
There is a Voice RC Viewer out and another in QA that uses a newer Vivox SDK. In the newer one voice crashes recover automatically.
Oz tells us there are 3 other viewer candidates likely to appear this week (#33).
The Animesh RC will get an update. Another Rendering changes version is coming. A new Maintenance version is in the wings waiting for a simulator change – the offline communication thing. The point here is to be more reliable in delivering messages at login, which were sent to you while you are offline.
Also, there are 3 Project viewers; the Estate Management Tools’ new features for the ban list, for which they are looking for feedback. There is the Snapshot Viewer which has no change, but they hope to get back to soon. For now, they are likely working on the Facebook problem with snapshots not uploading. The whole world seems to be on FB’s case. Continue reading →
Auctions are now a subset of Places Pages… or something along that line. See Second Life Auctions. Notice the URL of the page starts with places.secondlife.com/auctions.
You can see the land up for auction as open, scheduled, and recently closed. There are links to the land so you can see it. The link on the Auction page opens a Places Page. There is a SLURL on the Places Page.
