It will load the surl for a second and then an error about Google Maps not loading correctly comes up. In the JS console it says:

"Google Maps API warning: RetiredVersion https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/error-messages#retired-version"

This site has exceeded its daily quota for maps. If you are the creator of this site, please visit the documentation to learn more.

I don't believe this is something I can fix on my end, rather it's a problem with SL, but I'm not sure. Anyone have any ideas?

At the moment, maps.secondlife.com seems to be working okay for me in the browser, but I have some scripts that use the Map API in some MoaP javascript and those seem to silently fail. Although I watched them working maybe a week ago, I'm not sure anybody else uses them, so I'm not terribly motivated to troubleshoot further, not just yet anyway.

[ETA: Even though I promised myself I'd ignore it... the same javascript works just fine in a browser -- I'll paste it below -- but not working in MoaP now, but did before (adding quotemark-escaping as needed).]

<head><script src="http://maps.google.com/maps?file=api&v=2&key=" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="http://slurl.com/_scripts/slmapapi.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://slurl.com/_styles/MAIN.css" />
<style> div#map-container { width:1024px; height:768px;} </style>
function loadmap() {
mapInstance = new SLMap(document.getElementById('map-container'), { hasZoomControls: false, hasPanningControls: false, hasOverviewMapControl: false});
mapInstance.centerAndZoomAtSLCoord(new XYPoint(1807, 1198), 2);
<body onload="loadmap()" onunload="GUnload()">
<div id="map-container"></div>

Well drat, now there's a Map bug that really is affecting my scripts as well as the auction maps, but not in-world* nor maps.secondlife.com.

In my script (under spoiler tag above), it throws these errors:

and in the auction maps an additional

I wonder what's to become of all that Linden MapAPI documentation in the wiki, apparently now outdated.


* ETA: Of course the MoaP scripts referencing the Map API are visible in the viewer, so that's kinda "in-world", but the viewer Map window works fine.

An update: I noticed that the Auction maps started working again, and dug into it a bit. Apparently way back in December they updated the MapAPI to be based on leaflet instead of the old Google stuff.

It's far from backward-compatible -- indeed I can't quite replicate the precise map layouts I had before, no matter what I do, and the API itself is quite different (and it sure seems like the map zoom-levels are inverted from what they were, or at least changed in some unexpected way).

Anyway, it does work again, sorta like it did before. I just wish they'd been a little more forthcoming about what they were doing / had already done when they closed my jira, so I could have started fixing maps back when I had time to work on it.
