WORLD MAP UPDATE

Also at the TPV Developer meeting, Grumpity supplied an update on the world Map tile generation situation:

I’M ALSO GOING TO DO A THING THAT IS AN ABSOLUTE TABOO AND I TOTALLY SHOULDN’T BE DOING; BUT WE’RE IN THE PROCESS OF PUTTING OUT UPDATES TO MAP GENERATION. SO FINGERS CROSSED, [THINGS WILL] GET BACK TO NORMAL. IT HAS TURNED OUT TO BE A MUCH BIGGER EFFORT THAN ANYONE HAD WANTED IT TO BE … WE WOULDN’T HAVE CHOSEN FOR THIS TO BE SO HARD.

Fingers crossed, @Grumpity Linden, fingers crossed indeed.

The maptile gaps for the Second Norway extension and the north-east of Bellisseria to Satori have been fixed, though there are a few glitches. This weekend's group trips should be workable over most of the Grid.

I am not expecting anything to change over the weekend.

There has been slow improvement. Some of the areas which vanished as you zoomed out are now visible for longer. It looks like more maptiles have been generated, and there may be some sort of caching done in the viewer.

It took a few hours for the fix to propagate through the viewer cache I guess, as this wasn't working for me before today, but now it is!

Wonderful news.  Thank you unknown programmer of Linden Lab.

In celebration I bought some more Linden Dollars (and beat the price hike)  9_9
