    You're in Lockwood, it seems to me; a beautiful protected area in the middle of town with frog fountains and benches under wonderful Willow trees.

    Almost,  but incorrect. It's not Lockwood. It is a protected land, has frogs fountains, a willow tree, yes, but no benches or surrounding bushes..............

     

     

    .... yet ...(hint hint) 😁

  2. Thanks! I sort of fell on to it faster then expected, (and then off of it... several times) when looking around. 😁 No sign of her treasure, though, have to think it's around there somewhere!

    To keep with the fortified theme, and speaking of falling over or in things, I almost fell into a well in the courtyard of this one.

    So, where am I? -

    I'm US-based, so Comcast Xfinity, I've checked with my ISP, and they see no issues from their end, and I don't lose connection to anything other than being logged in. 

     

    I have a wired connection to Router, and a wireless connection to a ISP provided hotspot, which is then directly wired into my PC. I've tried both wireless and wired connections. This issue only started for me a few months ago, no changes made to any software(that I know of) or any hardware.

    If you can, restart your wireless router via an app or webpage control panel for the router.  When I was on Sat-net (eck) and on AT@T Wi-Fi (more eck) I saw the same issue a lot (and that was even after the old missing sim bug that was fixed ages ago). When I switched to a stronger Wi-Fi (T-Mobile in the US), I still saw it, but far way less. The only thing that seemed to help nearly eliminate it (beyond eventually switching to fiber) was restarting the wi-fi router from its web/app based CP either every couple of days, or, even every day. That will also help prevent any random odd drops. 

     

    I don't know technical reasons of why it happens (perhaps someone with better tech know-how can explain it) but it does seem to happen on wi-fi or any other wireless type set up. Could be a latency thing, net speed, network not connecting fast enough or so on.

     

    If the restarting doesn't help, another thing you can try is adjusting your draw distance as well and your bandwidth setting. Draw distances can vary in results, but if your net speed can handle raising your bandwidth setting, might be worth trying.

    Speaking of Casper...is there an issue with it today?  I've had 2 purchases not delivered.  Hitting the link to follow the progress of my purchase just shows the page taking forever to load and then 'processing'.

    There was an issue reported earlier through the Casper group, something involving the webpage. Should be ok now though.

    Does this server release make my butt sound big?

    Only if it drags on the ground, especially over crossings. 

     

    Just rode the routes from route 5 to 1, to 3 to 3A, all the sims were up, so good news there for sure. The thud noise, oddly enough, was really sporadic - varying on RC's and Main channel servers.   

  6. I'm guessing due to the restart issues today, the fix didn't get put in, considering while out a moment ago on route 5 then route 9, the sound was still there. Also noticed two sims not "visible" - either that or still down (one on each route) well after the roll back was completed. and the issue was shown as resolved. 😕

     

    For an example of the not visible/down sims - I'm currently standing in Second Norway and Brinken is down (  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Brinken/146/114/33 ) or not visible. 

     

    Edit 2 - While I was posting the info about Brinken, I turned around to see Nordfjorden ( http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Nordfjorden/171/76/69 ) turn red on the mini map, then go down.

    My favourite cars are old but still one of the best. Low lag, drives uncredibly smooth. and as  slow as you want

    I keep forgetting about this one..one of the most fun to drive and by far one of the most SOLID cars out there..not to mention it knows no fear..even if the driver does! 😆

  8. Check out any of the NTBI cars - Lusch Motors, GEMC, Jupiter, for example. Most of their cars have cruise control/speed limiters that can help with keeping a slow steady pace..plus most of the cars have a ton of steering and control options as well. 

    Plus they have a demo section where you can try all of the NTBI cars out - http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/NTBI/84/87/24 

     

    For specific slower cars to try - the Tuk Tuk Go from Lusch, the GEMC ice cream truck (sounds silly but its an epic road vehicle) and the Jupiter "Whats" (Kei)

    We are now told that QA testing of new simulator software is done on the Main Grid; I for one do not appreciate being used as a test subject in my day-to-day SL.

     Also wouldn't make a lick of sense, because doesn't that sort of negate the purpose of the RC channels, in the first place?

     

    To add to the returning thud annoyances, we were flying around last night in a Mayfly, and while circling Leviathan heard it happen at least twice. As far as I know we didn't collide with anything (since we didn't crash obviously lol), but sure heard it - LOUD and clear.

    I have not noticed it on any Main Server region yet.

    What  I heard on the main, must have been carry over from hearing it on the RC, when doubling back to check things. Our lead shop is on the same main channel I had mentioned and I'm not hearing it there....thankfully. 

    But Magnum, yes no doubt, and I swear it's louder this time...
