If you have ever wondered which regions are in a particular RC channel, Tyche provides the best information available. It isn’t a perfect list of RC channels as things change quickly. But, it is the best available.
Public Land Preserve – Is an idea of Prokofy Neva’s, a well-known hate magnet in Second Life™.
PrimPerfect and Designing Worlds are connected. Saffia Widdershins is the PrimPerfect editor and I’ll say lead interviewer. You hear her and Elrik Merlin interviewing Prokofy.
I Haz A Grief!
Garden of Dreams (URL) sponsored the episode. The Designing Wolds Studio is in Garden of Dreams. If you have not been to the Garden shop, more like a world, you are missing out. Visit! If you are decorating a parcel or region the Garden is a must see. Be sure you check out the Dream Scene Bubbles too.
Calling Prokofy a hate magnet begs the question, why? Her/his, Prokofy’s, sin is pushing the ideas of freedom, equality, fairness, and I would say true liberalism, which it seems liberal-progressives can’t seem to tolerate these days. However, Ravenglass Rentals is one of the oldest land rental companies in Second Life™. The land is in a region named Ravenglass. (Public Lands) Knowing the place gets griefed… and people still rent land there, what does it offer that moves people to tolerate the griefing?
If you have been in SL for a time you know a significant number of users are big on drama. Whole roleplay communities exist for the drama in storytelling. If you know a game master, you have no doubt heard some of their amazing stories of stupidity.
Unfortunately, drama often spills over into other parts of the SL world and results in RL legal actions that affect those of us that were minding our own business.
Feel good – GA.EG
In January I wrote about the OpenCollar Drama in OpenCollar No Longer OpenCollar? The Nirea and Athaliah side of that dama got control of the OpenCollar group. Moderators and some others there claim they are the only real OpenCollar. Collar updates are now confusing.
Now. it seems we are bumping into another such situation, but with mesh heads. Catwa has filed a DMCA Take Down Notice against GA.EG and Akeruka. I’m not clear on whether they are at DMCA with Akeruka. But, Akeruka is in conflict with Catwa. I hear Stray Dog is also dealing with a DMCA from Catwa. Note 7/9: Gac Akina the owner of Stray Dog says he isn’t dealing with a DMCA. As best I can tell the comment/email address is Gac’s.Continue reading →
My Thursdays have been busy. I’ve been missing the Content Creators’ meetings. Today I made it. There is some new news.
The meeting has moved back to Animesh4, ADITI, Second Life ™. Took a minute or two to track them down. Then my OBS wasn’t picking up the audio. It took me a bit to figure out what was wrong. The video is missing the first 10 minutes.
00:10 – The Land Impact cost for Animesh has been reduced from 200 to 15 plus additional cost for the total polygon count and kickers for LoD use. Poor LoD will drive up the cost.
Bakes On Mesh – The feature is live on ADITI. At the Beta Server UG meeting we found some of the current problems. One of which is phantom skirts. You see people with a tattoo wearing a black system skirt. They see you wearing one. But, you can’t see the skirt you are wearing.
You can take off the tat and the skirt will vanish. Put the tat back on and no skirt. At least until you relog.

Also, the bake service is slow delivering baked textures.
So, we’ll see Bakes On in testing over on ADITI for a bit more.
Region Crossings – In November 2017 Animats started a thread on region crossing problems. It is still running, now 7 pages long. See: Vehicles vs. sim crossings, why it’s so awful. The latest information and Animats testing results appear in this thread.
There are a couple of links to people using Animats fixes in their vehicles.
The Lindens are working on region crossings again. They just improved region server to server communication. A version of that change is running on Le Tigre and Magnum RC channels.
Animats main interest, avatars being half-sit – half on and half off, is next or near next on the fix list.
ADITI Inventory Sync – OS upgrades on ADITI are in place and we are told inventory sync’s are working again as a result… or something along that line.
There is apparently confusion among users on when the update occurs. The trigger is logging into ADITI. Some time after your log out the system will sync your inventory. Apparently, the sync process gets behind and an individual sync may not happen in the expected time frame. But, I think we should see it within 48 to 72 hours at most. I think mine are happening within 24 hours.
