  1. What am I missing here? You're complaining about having to use a authenticator program, which is a 2FA Method. Don't be a smartass.
  2. Authenticators are very light and don't need to be run in the background and are also available for PC as stated already. It's not that big of a deal. I have one on my linux system which uses about 100MB of RAM. That and "Another app"? What other app do you need for SL? All you need is a viewer, unless I'm missing something.
  3. MIRAI Group has been passively reporting ARs during flights around Bellisseria, but we do plan on doing regular (once a month/every other week) FONOPS (Freedom of Navigation Operations) once we open up to the public. So far we've hit a few zero-timer or non-compliant orbs and either filed ARs or issued (friendly) warnings that non-compliance can lead to losing your linden home, but other than that it's been smooth sailing. Hopefully now that the World Map is up, we can start work on charting and doing regular checks to ensure safe travel through Bellisseria and major airways in Sansara, Bellis
  4. To simplify / elaborate on what SkellDagger posted, Second Life (and other 3D games and applications) use what is called Floating point numbers to determine the position of objects in 3D space. A Floating point number for example, looks like this: 000000.000000 However, as the number goes up (or down into the negatives), the computer must sacrifice accuracy (decimals are more precise than whole numbers) for range, so it becomes more like this: 123456789.123 When the accuracy of floating point values become low, abberations in 3D space will occur, slowly progressing as you move away
  5. On behalf of MIRAI Group and the Virtual Existance Society, Thank you so much for your contributions to Mater Agni (SL) and to Virtual Worlds at large. It's a deep shame that you have to leave us, but as the old saying goes - to all things an end must come. We pray for clear skies ahead for your future, Oz.
  6. And people think I'm overly imaginative. I'm going to mirror what everyone has been telling you, and be even more blunt. This is the cringiest *****ing thing I've ever seen - so bad that I couldn't look through this thread at all without my head screaming why, and that's coming from someone whose personal life can tend to be quite cringeworthy by others' standards. Why in the hell would anyone invest in anything resembling this is beyond me when in either being used as a in-world media broadcast system or as a way to connect to SL from anywhere - both have little to no appeal, throu
  7. Thought I'd give it a go. Note that the region names are given for most because they're usually large areas, though for East River, I suggest you follow along the road going northeast as you'll start to see signs that will lead you into downtown East River directly.
  8. Group Chat has been borked for a hot minute. Honestly, SL needs a overhaul to the chat system so that it's not ad-hoc (at least I recall right it is)
  9. You can set yourself up a decent SL-oriented computer rig using the following specs: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 NVIDIA GTX 1660 (or 1650) 16 GB DDR4 RAM and a decent SSD for SL cache will have you running pretty well. I'm going to be running a comparable setup but with a 1060 I already own as opposed to a 1660. A word of warning, however - some AMD Motherboards on certain chipsets may need a BIOS Upgrade to use the BIOS, but this is usually with older motherboards that were flashed with a old BIOS from the factory from before the new firmware was aailable and newer ones already support Third-ge
  10. My opinion on this is thus: Opinions are like assholes - everyone has one, and some are worse off than others. To even humor the removal of adult content from SL by Linden Lab would result in widespread backlash by not just those who partake in it but by the more libertarian elements of SL, damage to the SL economy because people won't bother buying items that might be deleted come 2-4 months' time. If it were to go through, a sizable chunk (note, not a majority, but a sizable chunk) of SL's user-based economy would be *GONE* causing a cascading effect on the land economy as not just wou
  11. I have to side with the DreamSeeker Estates people. They're not obliged to enforce copyright on their land. That's Linden Lab's job and they won't do ***** unless a DMCA is filed. Also, to annoy every uptight person in this thread, as someone who's researched it for years - "Copyright law is a joke."
  12. If you want to go for a drive, just ask! Zindra's nice this time of the decade! But seriously, Zindra's roadside appearance has gotten better in recent years, a lot less of the gaudy walled up sex places at ground level, and the north coast is a treat to drive around in.
  13. I'm certain adult activities will not be effected by this. To the chagrin of Any company that Linden Lab works with, Sex sells a lot - Hell, we have an entire *****ing continent dedicated to it - Zindra - to deny the residents full (virtual) bodily autonomy within their legal rights as adults would at best just be an insult to the whole point of SL, and at worst, would cause catastrophic damage to the economy of SL. It wouldn't be the end of the world (immediately), but I know I'd probably spend less time in SL knowing I couldn't get dirty with some of my friends-with-benefits. Disney
  14. Ah, as in allowing a region/estate owner to select which RL region their sim is located. Yeah, That would be good.
  15. That amounts to instancing, which goes against SL's core design principles.
  16. I've said it before, I'll say it again - Anyone who sings praises about anything relating to "Agile" or "The Blockchain" are telling porkies.
  17. Honestly, I hold the opinion that the 'affiliated organization' section should be expanded to *all* minors. Those that are underage (as reported) are isolated to G-rated sims, restricting them from quite a lot of the non-adult content in SL because it's present on M-rated or A-rated sims. This turns most people away from accessing SL in its' full glory. I know if I was underage I'd have lost interest in SL by 1 year in at the most because of lack of stuff to do. That or well, I think those who've visited porn sites at ages under 18 before probably know the rest of that song and dance. (Hey, so
  18. Not sure on the former, but I believe they're referring the land baron problem. While I don't have a problem with say, Luxory or the Chungs, I will say that companies like LIFE properties are a plague on SL.
  19. Please, put a prim in it, we don't need infighting.
  20. I swear you know the right time to come in for everything, Brett. Also, I posited this to Ebbe on Twitter, but wanted to bring it up here - would it possible to have a 'meet the investors' Q&A thing of sorts on Youtube or something to learn more about the acquisition and other questions people might have? Would really help calm the tides as it were. Edit: You literally answered the question I asked. I need to read through a thread before responding - I'm looking forward to meeting them, then!
  21. It probably has to do with Havok's licensing. Havok as far as I am aware does not provide support for Linux.
