  1. DeeKate wrote: I've updated to Sierra about a week ago and both the viewers I got, Firestorm and Singularity, have become since really unstable ... I crash all the time and in particular when I tp from a sim to another. Almost tempted to give up SL. Which model Mac are you using DeeKate, and which graphics card?
  2. Thank you Whirly for your helpful response and the Jira links, much appreciated
  3. Interested to hear if anyone has tried running SecondLife Viewer on Apple MacOS Sierra (MacOS 10.12). Anyone out there given it a go yet?
  4. Yes like any business, if you buy in bulk from the supplier you can negotiate good discounts.
  5. I bought my Homestead Sims back in 2007 / 2008. At that time the monthly tier was $75 / month. A few years later, the monthly tier went up to $95/ month for the people who were paying $75 and new buyers after that time had to pay $125/ month. The same tier rates apply today. The term used for the regions which are old enough to incur the lower tier rate are called “Grandfathered”. When Homestaed Sims were priced at $75/ month - they only had 1875 prims available. When the cost went up -the prim allowance increased from 1875 to 3750.
  6. No not tanking. For a number of years I’ve routinely sold at 248. For each of my sims - this equates to selling 75811 per month to pay the $295 tier. If I start selling at 249, it will approximately add $1USD per month/ sim to my costs. Conversely, this would equate to marketplace traders who earn $295 USD in sales losing approximately $1USD if they decide to sell at 249… If you are pulling $3000 USD/ month out of SL it would cost you and extra $10 USD? The question for me is - if I need to convert L$ - US$ immediately, it costs more. If I can wait a day or two longer. It will cost the same. The main point of difference being a matter of patience waiting an extra couple of days for the transaction to complete.
  7. Thank you for your post ChinRey. Huge nostalgia! My first days in SL back in 2006, being taken to Yadni's by the kind helpers from Hanja - There I understood that the possibilities were endless. My inspiration grew from there. Still here, my world wilder, richer and much bigger. Still fascinated. Immense Thank You Yadni...
  8. Not available, This region has been rented. Thank you for looking. 65,536 sq.m / 3750 prims / 20 avatar limit / Estate Manager rights.
  9. I just installed Lion Mac OS X 10.7 over the top of Snow Leopard. After dowloading the update - but before installing - you can make a backup bootdisk from the InstallESD.dmg (it's about 3.7 GB) SL is running great with it - I am using Second Life version 2.6.9.231049 which is Second Life Project Viewer - Search. Just remember you will no longer be able to use any old Power PC apps after installing Lion. Also - you may want to go into your Mac System Prefs/ Mouse/ and Uncheck the *Move content in the direction of finger movement when scrolling or navigation*. Unless you like scrolling in the opposite direction
  10. 1700 vendors could be the problem especially if many of them are each pulling .100 ms. My equation works as follows - a maximum of 24ms for an entire full prim sim. I have a mix of regions that generally consist of:- 2 x 16386 sq.'s - 2 x 8196 sq.m and a couple of 4096 sq.m parcels. The 4096 sq.m parcels should never exceed 1.5 ms of maximum script time. 8096 sq.m should never exceed 3.00 ms and a 16384 sq.m (1/4 sim) should not exceed 6.00 ms. These amounts are maximum values (12ms total for the whole sim would be something to aim for) - carefully scanning an entire region is the only way to properly maintain levels below this amount. A single scan of a sim, parcel, avatar name or "get top script " list from the debug menu is sometimes misleading as script times can spike up very high or lay dormant. It could just be one object out of the 15000 causing the sim to slow. Refresh the list over and over.. If possible, continually refresh the Get Top Script list over an hour or so to get a more accurate reading. Looking elsewhere. Search for physical or temp rez objects. In the debug/ get top scripts - click TIME at the top of the Time column (5th Column from the right) check if anything is Temp Rezzing - (these are often called "1prim" or "2 prim" objects) - This column shows the time of day that the object was razzed. Click the TIME button at the top to sort the list so that the newest rezzed objects an be easily seen. The heavy handed approach is to open Top Scripts menu and click the top of the first column TIME to sort the highest scripts to the top of the list - then proceed returning the scripted objects while monitoring the Sim Stats menu until Time Dilation sits at 1.00 and the Total Frame Time sits at less than 22.3 ms. Above 23.3 Total Frame Time indicates a problem.
  11. Log into your dashboard and you will see a panel on the left side called Linden Exchange. Click the Manage link within this panel (next to the Buy L$ link) and the menu will expand. Click on the 7th link down on the extended list called Linden Exchange Settings. A new page will open - from this page you can select Advanced and the Submit button. Basic (displays the most basic market information) Advanced (displays all market information) From then on - when log into your dashboard, you can go to panel on the left side called Linden Exchange, click the Manage link within this panel, the menu will expand and you will need to click on the Sell L$ link. A new page will open and from here you can sell in two ways: Sell Linden Dollars (Market Sell) Offer to Sell Linden Dollars (Limit Sell) Use the Limit Sell option to get the highest rate possible. Add the amount you wish to sell in the Quantity field and the rate at which you wish to sell at in the Exchange in L$ field. Currently -the highest rate at which your L$ will sell instantly is 262 L$. The Open Sell Orders at the Best 20 Rates list tells you the rates at which L$ are selling at. You could sell at a 261 L$ rate but will need to wait for a day or so until they sell.
