  1. Second life gives users the ability to build at any height and I am fine with that, you are missing the point; People should not be allowed to automatically and instantly eject people for flying around in the mainland! It spoils the experience, in my opinion, why make the mainland a connected land when traversing it is like a minefield? I am of the opinion that work should be put in to prevent people abusing the mainland for what it's not, and move these skybox owners who demand privacy to private sims, the mainland was not built with the idea that skybox owners would prevent people from traversing and that the ground would be left barron and bare. The mainland was built with community in mind and I personally think that work should be put in to restore that original idea. I am, and this is my strongest opinion, that will definately hit a few people hard, of the opinion that skybox owners who want security devices and for nobody to ever come near their land, be forced to be moved to private sims, where nobody will ever come near their land (sky) I think the mainland should not be treated like a wild west, it should be a pleasant place to explore, a community. Griefers are the minority, not the majority. I think if you want the right to insta-eject people with no warning, you should be moved to somewhere where that does not interfere with my right to explore and be involved in the community.
  2. The thing is, Pamela, is that what I fly into, often does not look private. It is an open space, there are no visual ques. Pamela, You are right, private land is private land.I would never intrude on someones property like that. A locked door is a locked door and it's inexcusable to break through it. But the mainland is a different nature, it was designed to be explored. There are often no visual cues, and as you said, the Lindens don't respond to AR's. But, you are also wrong, Private land is not private land, until it is clearly marked as so, and also, private land is Land, not Private Air.For example, when I brought my house in the real world, I didn't buy the right to stop harry in his piper club from flying over, or John in his Jet. When I brought my home in the real world I also didn't buy the right to vaporize my neighbour when he stepped onto my drive with no warning, or to detain some guy who tripped and stepped foot in my drive, and because he so much as touched my land, drive him all the way back to his home in Alaska. You know? It's rediculous that there is no warning, and that you are teleported so far away. It is nasty and really sets a bad tone in second life. When you buy a house in the middle of a street you should expect people to walk past, this is what mainland owners seem to forget, they brought a parcel to develop on, where they have the right to ask people to leave, but they don't have the right to disturb everyone around them unnessacarily just for passing by, they should get off their high horse.
  3. I'll warn you now that this is my opinion, it is very strong and opinionated, you might even take it offensively, if you are easily offended, I suggest you click back. The SecondLife world is supposed to be an exciting place to explore, and feel free to do whatever you want right? Within reason, ofcourse. I personally beleive that automatic ejection systems ruin that. Do you know how it feels to fly over the mainland, and even though you're 200m up, not near anybodies home, in a zone where banlines shouldn't effect you, someone's orb decides to kick you out, and teleport you miles away to your home? When somebody who owns a parcel with a small insignificant house on the mainland thinks that nobody should pass over it? not even at 4000m, nowhere near it? With a 0 second warning, often there is nobody even in the house! I'll tell you how it feels to be ejected and sent miles back home for no good reason, it feels Infuriating. Like, seriously infuriating! I beleive that automatic ejection shouldn't be allowed on the mainland, above the banline zone, it just shouldn't. The mainland is SUPPOSED to be joined together, when you buy the mainland, you sign up to become a part of the surroundings, not to take your part and use it as a solid avatar wall designed to simply infuriate people wanting to pass by as they explore. I beleive that automatic ejection encourages people to be Selfish, and removes the feeling of community in second life. What you end up is with this wild west feeling, where you think that everybody around you is introverted, and has this massive metal pipe jammed within their rear hind, because they seem to be so stuck in an upright position that the thought that somebody flying over their home at any given time is worth stopping them, kicking them out, and deporting them thousands of miles away back to their own home, I mean heaven forbid we behave like human beings and have a conversation, right? I beleive that if people truly wanted privacy, and to not be included in the mainland community, they should not be allowed to be on the mainland where they ruin it for everyone else, they should be buying houses on private sims designed for privacy, not the mainland! This is just my view, take and discuss as you will.

  5. Hi all. I have a neighbour who has left a SL 'fireworks display' running for a good, i'll say 60+ hours? This isn't the first time either. the neighbour is not there and the fireworks are unnattended. The fireworks themselves do not enter my land, but all you can hear all day is 'whizz whizz, bang bang bang' very loudly, I'm not saying neighbours aren't allowed to make noise or have fireworks every now and then but this is plain rediculous and unnessacarily ruining the peace. Their land is banline'd and 'no-see' or whatever you want to call it, I have tried to manually mute the fireworks myself but it is impossible because they are just being automatically rezzed and explode too fast.. I can only imagine my visitors wouldn't even know where to begin, it's not only spoiling the experience for me but also the people I share the land with. I tried sending a Polite IM, explaining the situation; [quote]Hi there, I'm your neighbour at lunar wings :) You seem to have left some fireworks going unattended.. I appreciate that you may sometimes use stuff like this, but this banging noises for 48 hours ... is too much... your not even using them... please consider turning them off? thankyou[/quote] But they have obviously ignored it as they have been online, in there home before, I see the green dot. Ignorance is bliss to some people I understand but your ignorance shouldn't be affecting me. I did a report to the lindens this morning but it must have been 5am SLT, I guess most lindens are working in SLT time so I am awaiting a response, but I really don't know what to expect, with no confirmation that there will be any kind of investigation or when it will happen. How should I proceed in order to make sure this annoyance stops? there is no-way it can be allowed to continue..... Feel free to have a look for yourself, I am the parcel in the North west of Zamojski.. have a sit on the peir and listen to that awful banging and you'll realise what i mean.. :matte-motes-mad:
  6. I wonder if you guys can help me. It's an odd question and a very specific one, please don't answer with things about the in viewer graphics settings, i'm not interested. What I wish to know is, what are the optimum graphics card settings, in the Nvidea control panel NOT the viewer. To play SL with. I can get SL to run smoothly, but I wonder what I can do with my graphics card settings to give me headway to up the graphics settings in SL. My system is as follows; Intel Core2Quad Q6600 4 GB DDR2 5300 RAM Nvidea GTX 650 Ti Graphics Thankou!
  7. SecondLife is a tricky environment because it lets people 'do what they want' - and in some cases, one user doing as they please will stop another, there is often a conflict of interests. In this thread i'm talking planes and skyboxes, on the mainland. People build Skyboxes to have somewhere private and less exposed to the people around them, other people fly planes because it's not something they cannot do in the real world. Skybox owners probably don't appreciate hearing noisy planes, or worse being hit by them when they lie hidden by a sim crossing, planes interfering with skyboxes defeats the purpose of skyboxes. In much the same way the plane flier probably doesn't enjoy having his plane entangled in someones floating home that randomly appeared 2000m off the ground, it defeats the purpose of flying. I'm not suggesting that either the plane flier or the skybox owner should have their freedom to one or the other taken away, infact, I'm suggesting a totally different idea - A sort of 'mode' that users can optionally have on, that will prevent the two different types of user from conflicting eachother - If you'll bear with me whilst i'll explain; As a working name, let's just call it 'skymode' for now, I'm sure the lindens would have a much better way to call it, but I'm nowhere near as creative or intelligent as the linden team combined. Basically, users who plan to fly the linden skys without interupting or being interupted turn on this mode; How it works - The user turns skymode on, and any object above 200m no longer 'exists' for that user. When the user himself gets above 200m, he nor the plane he is sat on appears to other users. So the user could essentially be flying through 1000's of skyboxes and not see it, and the people in the skyboxes, won't see the user or his plane either, if that makes sense. This would grant skyboxers the privacy they aim for, and our virtual pilots to be the airspace of the mainland they came for, uninterupted. It would also result in less lag as script heavy planes don't need to be loaded by everyone, and the people in the planes don't need the SL servers to send them data about the skyboxes around them. Less strain on the linden servers + less lag for the end user + better overall experience. Well, I could be wrong. But this is just my suggestion. Feel free to comment, flame it, love it, whatever :P
  8. Are you implying this effects objects at all heights? And for how long has the abilitity to do such a thing been in place? I have been flying over linden waters, IE, nearly empty sims, with nothing but water, and experiencing nothing but horror stories. If I can't sim cross on a prim then I don't want to sim cross at all.. If we weren't meant to travel then the mainland should not be connected and shouldn't have Sim crossings at all. If someone imposing an object crossing restriction causes the LL Servers to glitch out and put me underground then something tells me that LL have made a poorly implemented 'feature'. If this continues I'll be dropping my investment in SL. As the coastlines on SL prove, people on SL enjoy boating, and aviation. We might not represent the whole community but we are a significant part of it. I don't know about other people but I'm very close to quitting, and it's a real shame.
  9. Hello Linden Lags. Untill a few weeks ago, I was able to fly sitting in my prim vehicle (plane) from the south end of the Corsica, Gaeta, Nautilus Satori, U.S.S Blake Sea Islands to the North (I've still not figured out which is which.). Now I can cross possibly 5 sims at most in any direction, before a sim fails to load, and I shortly find myself under the floor, or unable to stand stuck in the air, getting disconnected from the game when attempting to teleport. As an Avid Gamer and somebody who has been working as an IT Technichian for several years, I observe that this is a problem on your end, as my computers hardware and network connection (and diagnosing ping time to your servers) are more than adequet and reliable being a wired connection that is less than 10 minutes walk away from a main network exchange server. I have been very careful about testing my own computer for issues, reading around on your blogs for possible information but nope, nothing. As a paying customer, I'd like to know what it is you are doing with my investment as of recent that is causing the issue, and will it continue..? Frankly I'm bored after several weeks of dissapointment of waiting for the storm to pass. If you are not going to shell out to maintain a reliable service, then don't expect me to shell out and continue to invest in a crippled horse..? Technical difficulty or not, a 'sim crossing' is a feature of your game, and a feature that you are failing to provide. I'd like to know what exactly you are doing to fix it, and when I can expect it to be fixed.. Please, get it together. All things considered, Second Life is a great peice of software with huge potential, don't let it fail as a result of 'cost cutting'..
  10. As the title suggests, I'm looking for a Mainland Halfsim to rent (or a full sim, depends on pricing), or space within one. Need atleast 5k prims. Please let me know if anyone is offering such a thing. Thanks
  11. Hi all. I wondered if you could help me speed up my Second Life Viewer. My issue is this; My Graphics card dedicated memory, whenever playing Second Life, jumps up to 90+% and I start to see huge FPS drops to sub 5 FPS which makes the game unplayable. My PC certainly isn't the latest and greatest but it's not slow either, some specs; - GeForce GTX 650 Ti (with 1024 Mb dedicated graphics memory which all gets used when playing SL) - Core 2 Quad Q6600 (4 Core) @ 2.4Ghz - 4Gb DDR2 SDRAM What graphics settings should I change in game and the nvidia control panel in order to make the game run fast whilst maintaining reasonable quality?
