  1. Past hour
  2. I am one who uses my own security orb I would not have an issue with the LL one if they allowed me to set people to manage it like turning it on and off when needed but they do not so I use my own and the covenant is quite clear that we can use our own orbs as long as they are set to the LL specifications as mine is and I can set my wife as a manager of it should she need to do anything like adding a friend to the whitelist or banning someone that needs to be banned and here is a direct quote from the covenant and until that is changed is law. = Security == *Linden Homes do not have the ability to set your parcel access to group access only (which creates ban lines for everyone else). You can still eject and ban people by name. *Security orbs are only allowed if they comply with the following restrictions: -Minimum of 15 seconds warning time (no shorter) -Eject from parcel only (not teleport them home) -Effective range cannot include the airspace between 400m and 2000m (to allow for people to fly overhead but not in the airspace where skyboxes are allowed) If you are uncertain, there is a free security system provided in the Linden Homes Content Pack. It does not have the ability to be set in a manner that does not comply with these restrictions. Click on the house controller outside of your parcel (the one used for changing house models) to get the most current content pack sent to you.
  3. Loging fails Grid status says nothing.. Am I the only one? I'm coming from Europe.
  4. @hooters008 This forum also has an Adult Content (SFW/NSFW mixed) section. I cover some of SL's Adult Content (SFW) in my blog. The Destinations Guide has Adult (SFW) sections you may find helpful. Both SL web-search and the viewer's in-world search will help you find possible places for scoping out kinky grannies. ...and we have a collection of porn producers in SL. 😣 In answer to your question of whether there are such places... yes. I don't hangout in them so I have no links. Sorry.
  5. That happened fast! Now I wish I had bought the secretary desk....
  6. Rolig is right. Temperature can be a problem. You can get the free HWMonitor and check temperature without opening the case. You can run HWMonitor and the viewer. Flip between the two (Alt-Tab on Windows) to check the load and temperature.
  7. I second "trailer park." The only downsides I see are that they might be very small inside, and people might tend to go full-theme and junk up the yards (which can be fun, just maybe not appealing to some.) I've done a few on mainland and always had a good time with it. I also love futuristic places, and was excited about Horizons initially. That could have been a neat Linden Home theme. Cliff houses and mountain lodges would be great, also. A lake and/or caves nearby, hiking trails, overlook parks...
  8. I think that actually is the maximum actual frame time allocated to a homestead sim. It's a quarter of a full sim so it makes sense. This is something I've seen before. According to the stats, the frame time allocated to a homestead is the same as that allocated to a full sim. If that is correct, an event should take four times as much frame time at a homestead but is clearly not the case. The only possible explanation is that the statistics are wrong and a homestead only have a quarter of the frame time they say it has. I redid the test at a full sim, Sandbox Formosa. There were three scripts to start with I couldn't get rid of - it may have been my Firestorm bridge - but they shouldn't be significant to this illustration. I suppose I can just post some screenshots of the stats - they should say it all. Except for one unexpected and not really related observation. When I tried to remove all the prims as one bundle, I got the message they couldn't be deleted because of too many scripts. Seems we've got a way to override autoreturn here: just load your item with enough scripts and the sim won't be able to get rid of it.
  9. What happens when I am left unattended at the Cyberpunk fair.
  10. Apparently that was their response. I only have Animats' word fir it of course , I wasn't there, and now that he's rejoined the thread, there's no need for me to say anything more about it. Yes, that's a far more likely explanation but if that's the case, why don't they say so? Except for the "shaky knowledge" part. The core of lsl was not created by some juinor programmer but by LL's two former CTOs, Cory Ondrejka and Andrew Meadows, and they certainly knew better. It's more likely that it's because it was a rush job. According to Ondrejka, SL wasn't supposed to have any scripting functionality at all. It was added as an afterthought (Ondrejka and Meadows actually wrote the entire LSL 1.0 in a single one-nighter work session) and they never expected it to become an important part of SL. I can hardly claim to be an expert in this so I rely heavily on secondhand information here. But I did spend a year of my wasted youth studying computer technology at a university and I have written programs myself if that helps.
  11. My biggest problem with gachas is resellers with terrible keyword spam. Filtering out no-copy items gets rid of most of them, but then you miss out on good gachas that do fit your search, and any other no-copy items that would fit your needs too. There's too many items to flag. I'll sometimes flag two or three if a particular reseller is excessively spamming. You can check what keywords they use if you look at the page source code on the item page, then you know if it was a minor error or a long line of bad keywords. LL needs to come down harder on the ones who regularly do this. To those who take the time to write their product descriptions and keywords well, thank you.
  12. Today
  13. Thanks for putting this together! I LOVE biking around Bellesseria and can't wait to try the loop this weekend. 🚲👍
  14. I just had a look as well, and see that his profile (Winter's) appears to be inactive.
  15. Yesterday
  16. The worrying part is that the load stats already are that high. What will happen when people have filled up their homes with furniture with animation scripts, maybe a pathfinding pet or two etc., etc. The numbers are actually remarkably similar to those of one of my own regions, Coniston, a region that has been developed for almost six years with far more housing units, may main store and at least 14 (I've lost count) full sim sky platforms and according to LL it's a heavy region. Then again, it may be the avatars. There were eight of them in the region (nine when I arrived but I used one of my low lag non-mesh alts). I don't know how much of the load they accounted for and we're not going to see that many of them once things have settled down a bit. So it's a heads up, not an alarm.
  17. I'm new, I missed out on the Linden homes. I kind of liked the houseboat theme. Not sure about this SL game though. Do I want to pay premium for a month or two at $9.50/month or rent here for a week at a time $2/week without the premium membership to try the game out. Not a bad deal for a newbie.
  18. Kind of a weird thing coming from someone who admittedly has no knowledge of this topic and has only heard second-hand musings from another user who has no insight into the system being used. (No offense to Animats, I respect him.) You can't say "LL doesn't even realize," they are most likely aware of this but the cost of restructuring a major part of the server architecture for a few milliseconds gain in a situation where no critical harm is being suffered is probably not worth it. It is likely that -- like many things in SL -- the foundation was built on shaky knowledge and improved over time, but the core is still there and at this point it is almost impossible to change without a complete redo. And LL has attempted a complete redo, it's called Sansar. And this isn't even about "professional programmers," big companies make stupid decisions to no fault of the developers who might see the issues but have no power to influence the decisions. (Not to mention that "professional programmers" make lots of stupid decisions too, there are so many jokes and stereotypes related to programming that are very deeply rooted in a depressing reality.)
  19. I'm making my Daydream a reality! So... looks like I'm in the same boat as many of you... no houseboat... not likely to get one anytime soon... but I'm not gonna sit around and dream about being a Bellisserian... I declare by squatters rights I AM ONE.. Here I am growing roots on a beach towel in the sim of Calm Waves... The hermit crabs make pretty good neighbors too as long as they don't get too grabby!
  20. Not much but not much is not the same as nothing at all and this spinning ("spinning" is yet another word for "busy waiting" or "busy idling" btw) is tapping regions of a significant amount of resources they could have put to better uses. I don't think we should compare the two because. Over-scripted avatars are the user's responsibility and it's up to us to deal with it. The spinning is a fundamental flaw in the software and Linden Lab's responsibility. As I said, the most worrying aspect of this is that LL doesn't even realize that this isn't normal for a computer program. Professional programmers shuld know better.
  21. Looks like the inworld store has closed down. I just tried to TP there and its telling me no valid location. Must have been just recently, because I brought the Secretary Desk from there only a couple weeks ago.
  22. Wow, everyones places look so nice. I am still learning how to limit my prims and link stuff. I have champagne taste on beer prims!
  23. creased carpets in otherwise pristine homes its an sl epidemic! /me ducks and runs for her life
  24. I was at the shop a few days ago. I bought the curtains after seeing them in a friend's house. But the link isn't working now. I hope it will be back. I know a lot of people like his furniture.
  25. Ah. Well I "Sort of" fixed it. Results may vary. 1. Go into the legs and delete the scripts inside it which override the alphas 2. Make the alpha part right where the gap is show using the hud And this is the result.
