    Is LL putting more sims on fewer servers?

    I like them as much as you do, and I probably sail and fly around more than you do, but LL needs those "excessive profits" not only to keep stuff running as also to make improvements to it.

    I would never agree with that for the simple reason that at my 1024 sqm parcel I have several different buildings and windlight settings, distributed by sky platforms (none is below 2000 m altitude) plus the building on the ground. If you want to limit skyboxes, then why not simply limit the sky altitude itself? I would agree with a minimum altitude allowed for skyboxes, though. I know it can sound funny flying an airplane against one, but it really isn't for the pilot. [EDIT] I don't get what you mean with "There's no real point to skyboxes on mainland, anyway; anyone who goes there does so with a teleport". Are you forgetting we can set a landing point? (which I have set to the ground at my parcel where I have sky platforms)

    Yes, when sailing or flying I always use a fixed environment on Firestorm. And at my main parcel I have fixed windlight settings (of course only Firestorm users will see it and only if they allow it.)

    Yes, that will be great. I just wish that stars wouldn't be black dots at sunset/sunrise.

    Disappearing Maintenance

    I noticed that too. Actually, I was expecting the maintenance, and I have no idea why the notice disappeared, but that's not something new for the GSP — it has mysterious ways. 😋

    I did that years ago, and LL moved my home region to the main channel. It's one of the many things I'm grateful for.

    Um... Caleb? The GSP says that rolling restarts for the Main Channel are underway. https://secondlife-status.statuspage.io/incidents/3949qd6tvn0x

    I know, my post was a joke because nothing was there. Caleb spoiled it. 😄

    Here are the notes from the GSP notice: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Release_Notes/Second_Life_Server/19 😋

    Full sims - queue?

    Ouch! I have that very same experience being at the main sim too. And also sometimes having vendors not delivering what I paid — the solution is always going to the main store and use the re-delivery terminal (if they have one.)

    It's funny that right now the world map shows 40 avatars at Gilded, 42 at Golden, 40 at Halcyon, 37 at Aurelian and 32 at Tinseled. Of course the numbers aren't accurate, as they depend on the world map updating timings, but I'm sure they won't be far from that. And yes, the cam sims have much, much less avatars.

    A friend who didn't bother fighting the lag at the Shop & Hop event says the cam shopping worked pretty well for her. I have that experience myself from other shopping events. Some of the most important shopping events have been using cam sims for quite a while now, and I can testify that even avatar collisions are minimal, as everyone tends to quickly move away from the landing point to the sim border, so they can zoom in to vendors easier. Despite using virtual bodies and stuff we are still human, so I suppose that most people prefer to walk around if they can. I know I do, especially if the event has buildings at a demo area, which is at the main sim, in a sky platform. Yeah, leasing sims for events costs money, and I believe that cam shopping ones are only useful for the event's first week... After that, attendance usually drops significantly.

    No need for popups if you are zooming around or talking with a friend in IM — the viewer "knows" you are not inactive.

    Full sims - queue?

    Yeah, but as Qie pointed, it's not exactly something very needed right now. What is important at the moment is reducing the servers load. Scripts are what make SL tick, and I really have no concrete (doable) idea on how to lower the scripts load at sims. Almost everything is scripted these days, to the point that quite some of the top apparel creators not only sell their stuff scripted (needed to change colours/textures) as also do not provide a scripts remover. From my shopping list, I have only a couple good creators who do that... One sells clothes copy/mod, so we can manually remove the scripts, and the other provides an option on the HUD to delete them. The same applies to a queuing system. I dunno if it is possible to make it work together with the existing code without an huge amount of work and some in-depth changes to it all.
