I thought we would be in the no change window all this week. But, the Lindens have decided to roll last week’s RC update to the main channel… or they automated the forum posting like they did the status reports… naw.
♥ Believe in the Magic of Christmas ♥
The package rolling to the main channel is listed as having ‘improved internal server logging’. So, it makes sense to me that there is little likelihood of new bugs being introduced by adding and changing logging features. The week in testing probably revealed no performance change problems for this package. So, why not roll it out? Continue reading →
Recently the Lab gave land owners more prims, well changed the prim limits on land. Today about 10 AM (12/7 – Pearl Harbor Day) the Lab announced Land owners can buy even more prims, push the limit from 20,000 to 30,000 prims… or more accurately change their Land Impact limit for some money.
Adds Feature: BUG-40871 Add new llGetEnv() constant “region_object_bonus”
These features haven’t made it to the wiki yet. They are at this point beta versions of the functions. The SLOTS_AVAILABLE item is for those working with Experiences. It is handy to know if an avatar has used up all the attachment slots before trying to attach something else to the avatar. Continue reading →
Has it ever occurred to you that you could take your Second Life land green? The region server is using electricity. So, how would one do that? There is an article, Basilique goes green, about taking your region green… Basically, can you offset the energy used by your region in some way by cutting your personal energy use or can you shift to personally using more green energy. It is an offset sort of thing.
I think it is an interesting idea. I applaud any effort to get people to look at energy use and dive into what is being done and thought in the climate debate. It is the anti-science people that have no understanding of the scientific method and subscribe to political consensus that I have a problem with. Especially when they use climate change as a means to further limit speech.
Saving energy is smart. But, are you sure it is efficient, reliable, and makes economic sense? Does your choice actually reduce the carbon output of a generating station somewhere? Reducing atmospheric carbon dioxide does reduce plant growth. So, are you reducing food production and contributing to human starvation? Have you tried to put your ideas in perspective with RL?
I am irked that Becky thinks she has studied climate change. It appears she has read the basic UN promoted material without any questions. So, I posted my questions in a comment on that point.
Too few people do more than decide they can save the Earth by doing what governments tell them without any thought on what they may actually be doing to the planet and the people that live in underdeveloped countries. And they never bother to question what they have been told or take the next logical step.
This is not the week for news. Because of the US holiday Thanksgiving Second Life™ is in technical lock down, no changes. So, there are no server upgrades this week, main or RC channels.
Viewers are included in the tech freeze. So, the main viewer at version 22.214.171.1241518 will remain there until Monday 11/28 or later. Word is it is much more stable than the previous version. It has a lot of fixes. Continue reading →
Well, for about a minute… when all the guns in Second Life broke… Now, there are work around steps and viewer fixes and… Whatever, you can again shoot those deserving of annihilation.
So, what happened? Why can’t I shoot that scumbag werewolf and save the hot mini-skirted damsel? Seems the Lindens fixed a problem in the process of building Horizons, that’s my thinking. As they expanded controls for use with Advanced Experience Tools (AET), Horizons is an advanced experience, the scripting functions needed a bit more control. So, as reported some time ago we got new SIT commands. See: Second Life News 2016 w45 and for more details Scripting.
Fallout Wasteland – liqueur.felix
I suspect somewhere in that process the Lindens noticed some REALLY OLD bugs, think beginning of SL time, which are now just oddities for most scripters and fixed them to make it easier (and likely make it more logically correct) to do Horizons. The result is all the weapons designed to deal with those bugs/oddities broke.
