  1. Yes, you can always take the proactive step of finding the owner's name and sending an IM, but I think Bitsy's basic point is that contacting a neighbor blind is just enough harder than sending a message to a neighbor you can see that most people won't do it. If I see a green dot in my neighbor's parcel, I can't tell whether she is naked or building something, or whether she is maybe AFK. I don't like to interrupt someone who is clearly busy or might be embarrassed by the thought that --gasp! -- I knew that they were dressing. It's not a big social inhibition, but enough to keep me from saying Hi as often as I might otherwise. I wander around Bellisseria a lot, just because I like exploring, but I rarely see anyone else outside. As Bitsy says, it's a little spooky. Edit: Heh, and there she made the point herself while I was typing.
  2. Bingo. Now see what happens. Trust your ability to solve a problem like this. You can usually do it. 😎
  3. No, that's the routine that you are sending the information. When you are receiving the message in the listen event, how do you know who sent it?
  4. Yes, so don't do that. I'm not going to tell you the answer. This is one you can figure out easily if you stop and think about it. Where do you already know who sent the message?
  5. Think carefully. You already know the UUID of the person who sent the message, don't you?
  6. A listen event cannot "detect" anything. You may only use llDetectedKey() in touch*, sensor*, and collision* events.
  7. The moles have designed Bellisseria with parks and gardens in some surprising places. You're not likely to be aware of them if you teleport from place to place, or even if you fly. When I explore, though, I prefer to do it at ground level. You see so much more! Just this morning, for example, I was wandering down a street in Wolfeboro and looked up at this bridge .... I got curious about what was up there, so I went looking for an access road. It turns out not to be a road at all, but a paved path, which starts in Oldridge and runs across much of Wolfeboro. It's not hard to find, but you do have to poke around a bit. The path is an easy walk (or scooter ride), except for one imposing set of stairs. My scooter handles them nicely, but a car would be out of the question (which is just as well, if you ask me). And once you're up there, the view is lovely. The path is lined with flowering shrubs. I swear that I could hear birds and squirrels, but maybe that's my vivid imagination, In any case, it's just where I would expect suburban wildlife. And then you descend along a winding slope, back into the streets of Wolfeboro, leaving the park high behind you, hidden in plain sight ......
  8. Yes, with llSetPhysicsMaterial, but that's not what you want to do with a vehicle. I'd suggest varying VEHICLE_BUOYANCY in llSetVehicleFloatParam, perhaps. Actually, I'd suggest sticking with one sort of project long enough to get a decent feel for how to write scripts that all relate to a theme (vehicles, teleporters, color changers, .... ) You've been bouncing around daily from one project to another and not writing many of your own scripts. It's an inefficient way to learn LSL.
  9. You're going to get a lot of blowback on this one. 1. There are no children in SL. You must be at least 16 to have an account. 2. People wearing spankers almost certainly can't be said to violate the ratings rules unless the spankers are activated, and YOU activated them. If there's a culprit here, it's the person who activated them. To offer another example ..... if you found a woman with RLV active and you removed her outer clothing in that G-rated region, YOU would be violating the TOS and she could file an AR on you, just as the residents who just reported you. 3. If you ever think that you have observed a TOS violation, the proper action is to submit an AR, not to take matters in your own hands. Linden Lab takes a dim view of vigilantes. I'll sit back and watch, but I suspect that other people responding won't be as kind as I have tried to be.
  10. This was such a lovely day, I decided to wander on dry land instead of heading to the seafloor again right away. It was a good choice. My horse loved the hills of Amram and Learmont. The ground is a little rocky and it's steep in places, but not hard for a sure-footed horse to handle ... ... and there's still plenty of grass to nibble on until you get to the highest points. The view from the top is breathtaking. Beyond the hills, the land is all undeveloped so far. Some day, all of that grassland will have houses or trailer camping areas in it, I suppose. For now, it's a wonderful place to let a horse gallop as fast as he wants, and for me to enjoy the wind in my hair. I think I'll ride down and do just that.
  11. No, you cannot be banned for sending screen shots to Linden Lab as part of an Abuse Report. That's a perfectly acceptable form of evidence. See the Community Standards : Sharing personal information about other users, either directly or indirectly, without their consent—including, but not limited to, gender, religion, age, marital status, race, sexual orientation, alternate account names (including account statuses, such as whether it is on hold, suspended, or active), and real-world location beyond what is provided by them in their user profile—is not allowed. Except for the purpose of reporting abuse or any violation of policies to Linden Lab, the remote monitoring, posting or sharing of conversations without a participant’s consent are prohibited. Note also, from the Knowledge Base: Screenshots can be very helpful visual evidence; include them whenever appropriate.
  12. No, you cannot submit a complaint by phone or e-mail. You need to submit an Abuse Report. Include the most important information (times and places, names and specific actions that you believe violate the TOS), but don't speculate about motives or get into a rant about things. Provide facts and be concise. As a reminder, this is a public resident-to-resident forum. We are residents like you, not Lindens. Lindens may occasionally monitor things here, but will not deal with Abuse complaints or anything of a personal nature.
  13. As always, ask in the Wanted forum or the InWorld Employment forum. You know by now that this is not the place to search for an existing script or ask someone to write it for you. However, if you are writing a script yourself and need help getting past a tough spot, you've come to the right place.
  14. Sadly, llCastRay alone won't help you much if you are flying over Linden water. You can't detect the water surface with a cast ray, so you'll still have to do a double check to see whether llGround(ZERO_VECTOR) > llWater(ZERO_VECTOR) . Otherwise, that's a good suggestion and it can help tell whether you are over the ground or over some object. You could use that bit of knowledge to tell you whether to turn on the dust cloud, so you don't get dusty birds.
  15. Never. I have been in SL since 2007 and have only turned voice on a couple of times to listen. I don't have (or want) a mic. Arielle has it right... and I find it irritating to hear dogs barking, traffic in the street, kids yelling, and all the other background noise.
  16. That's more or less my own attitude. I don't block or de-render things. Ignoring them takes less effort.
  17. I only know enough hanzi to read a few signs, so that I don't stumble into the wrong bathroom. Pinyin is easier for us non-Chinese. And writing in any language is harder for me than speaking. You can hide a lot of grammatical uncertainty by mumbling. The written word is not so forgiving.
  18. This makes me wish that I had put more energy into learning to read hanzi.
  19. Your graphics card will try to render anything that is within your draw distance, and will try to render the highest LOD that it can, given the limits you have set in Preferences and debug settings. If you are reasonably far from ground level, there are likely to be fewer things to render, so your FPS should be greater. Of course, your system will always try to render nearby objects first, so if you have a skybox jammed with stuff, that will affect your performance more than how close to the ground it is.
  20. 现在每个人都赶紧去谷歌翻译。 哈哈。
  21. Please be aware that many griefers would like nothing better than to have you do something stupid that violates the TOS, so that they can file an AR against you. Revenge can easily lead to one of those stupid things. As Alwin and others have said, the silly game is annoying but doesn't hurt anybody and does not violate the TOS. Just ignore it.
