  1. We're sorry you have been inconvenienced this weekend. We have been trying to figure out why the payout pads in Linden Realms have stopped working, but it's going to take some time.  As a precaution, I have deactivated all scripts in the payout pads so you cannot lose any of the credit you have for crystals and quests while we work on the pads.  I can't predict how soon things will be working again.  Meanwhile, you can still collect crystals and complete the quests.

    How do I get rid of the LH - Camping - Williamsburg v4.71? I greatly appreciate your help with this!

    All better.  You can always submit a support case if you have problems, but I happened to be cruising through here and saw your note.

    Nope, you can't see into another region unless the one you're standing in is joined to it, even if only joined indirectly via other regions.

    Besides, Moles are sneaky.  We do our best work when you can't see us.

    @Quartz Mole, @Dyna Mole, would this work?

    Probably.   It's worth a shot.  One of the nice things about EEP is that you can not only personalize its effects, but you can trigger it differently for each person if you are clever enough with scripting.

    When can we expect fantasy homes?

    You can expect them any time.  They will be available when they are ready ... Soon™

    Mole junk is still junk. 

    Yes, but with great cosmic significance.  We deal only with A-one, Ultra class junk.

    small boxes that can be found up in the sky that are owned by the Moles and are meant to be there.  They are the region controllers for the homes and are always located in a public land area in the region.

    Mess with those and your universe will start to shred at the edges.  😈

    Man, I am really bad with SL permissions.  Any thoughts?

    You are not the only one.  I hate dealing with permissions. I like Molly's list of suggestions about setting perms and abilities for doing group work. In addition, I would suggest ,,,

    Some things I can just take possession of by shift-dragging it.  I delete the copy I made, which belongs to her and which I have no problem deleting, an own the one left behind into which I can insert my scripts. 

    Don't do that.  I know it's easy and fast, but it doesn't always work properly.  (I don't know why, but it just doesn't.) Even when it does work, the risk is high that you will absent-mindedly delete the wrong copy.  I remember a former colleague who was notorious for doing that on our group work.  It's much safer to use Save Copy and then rez the copy from your own inventory.

  9. Just remember that you cannot choose a specific location. You specify the style of home that you want (Traditional, Victorian, Log, Stilt  ....) and you are offered a location among those that are available at the time. You can abandon a Linden Home and choose a new one up to five times a day.

  10. Either way works. If you rez your bike on the ground, it should auto-attach. (Assuming that you rez it in a place where you have permission to rez it, like one of the handy rez zones on Belliserria. ) Otherwise, you can ADD it directly from your inventory, as Quartz says.

    Through the years, we've had many threads almost pleading for a free-fly zone throughout SL. Nobody ever suggested one as deep as it is in Bellisseria. The suggestions were in the region of 100 to 300 meters deep. They did want it a bit lower than 400m though, and, not being a flyer-explorer, I'm not sure whether or not 400m is a bit too high, but a very deep free-fly zone is implemented and that's all to the good, imo.

    Thanks. That lower limit is a bit arbitrary, but we took several things into account.  The maximum height at which objects can be seen on the world map, for example, is 400m.  Also, there have been several discussions here in the forums about how far above someone's house you have to be before it's impossible to cam inside.  It turns out that it's something like 300m.  When you take into account that we have terraformed Bellisseria with some "mountainous" regions that are well above the average 22m elevation of most of the Mainland, it seemed that setting the lower edge of the fly zone at 400m was a reasonable choice.  It's high enough to keep travelers from peeking into places where they shouldn't. The 2000m upper limit guarantees that flyers won't bump into any skyboxes or random garbage either.

    Surely if they can keep people out of gaming regions from states that don't allow it they can find a way to disable any other security system but their own from working.

    That doesn't even sound easy.

    It's always possible to turn of all scripts in a parcel or region, but I can't think of a way to lock up just one script -- especially if I don't know exactly which script to lock. There are a huge number of security systems out there, and it's not hard to write new ones.  Even if I had a tool that could target a specific type of orb, we'd be playing an endless game of Whack-A-Mole to find and lock them all.  That's sort of the situation we are already facing as we try to keep up with the evil ones that residents report with ARs, so that hypothetical tool wouldn't help much.

    Worse than that, if I could think of a way to lock someone else's script, you can bet that griefers would also be able to do it.  Talk about my worst nightmare ..... 🥺
