  1. Anyone can tell whether you are logged in to SL or not. It's extremely easy and there's nothing illegal about the technology itself. The LSL function that makes it possible is the basis for all of the mailboxes you see in shops and classrooms around SL that say "The owner is not in world right now. Please leave a message." Unchecking the icon in your Friends list doesn't affect that at all. The only thing it does is make it so that your unchecked friends have to work just as hard as anyone else to see if you are logged in. What IS illegal and reprehensible is using that technology for stalki
  2. If you are new to LSL scripting, but even if you aren't, I'd suggest breaking your project down into bite-sized pieces and working on them a bit at a time instead of going for the whole thing at once. The script you are describing has a lot of bells and whistles built in. Just map out the basic script first and get it running, then start adding the extras.
  3. Angel is not among the approved Third Party Viewers who have certified that they are in compliance with LL's policy >>> http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Third_Party_Policy_and_Viewer_Directory_FAQ . That does not mean that there is anything wrong with it, but it does mean that you should probably look carefully at the policy and see what an approved viewer is supposed to do.
  4. I was just typing a response to your question in Answers. Glad to see you made it here. Take a look at http://community.secondlife.com/t5/LSL-Scripting/Region-Sensor/m-p/1066425/highlight/true#M5135, where this question was raised here most recently. There are some good ideas to start with.
  5. There are several causes for bake failure, so the same solution does not work for everyone. Take a good look here >>> http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=fs_bake_fail . Start at the top with the simple things, and work your way down the list until you find what works for you. I know it says Firestorm, but the methods work for any viewer.
  6. Try putting it just below 300m. If I remember correctly, things above 300m won't show in a map view. Remember to texture the bottom side with a transparent texture so you can see the sky from below, and make it phantom so you don't bump into it.
  7. NO! Who keeps spreading this silly rumor anyway???? See http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Account/is-this-truth/qaq-p/1103853
  8. Oh, that's LL's standard cryptic error message. Here's their cryptic recommendation about what it means and what to do next ..... Despite our best efforts, something has gone wrong... The error message may also tell you to contact support. Before you so so, try these steps: Change your login location. During periods of high login activity (evenings and immediately after a new release of Second Life), this message may indicate that your login attempt has timed out. In this case, wait a few minutes, then try to log in again. Inspect your firewall settings (if you have a firewall) or consult
  9. Is your object physical? If so, the llTargetOmega motion is server-side, which means that it can be detected and altered by scripted commands to the servers, like llSleep.
  10. You could certainly put a textured sphere on a scripted path across your sky and call it one of the hurtling moons of Barsoom. That's not particularly hard. The difficult part is the size. Moving a small physical prim doesn't take much energy, but you can't see a small prim unless you're fairly close to it. Sadly, a nearby moon just isn't as convincing as a distant one. Unfortunately, to see a distant moon it would have to be BIG, and you can't move physical megaprims of any decent size without crashing the sim and maybe having an unpleasant visit from a LL techie. The only other option
  11. Well, if you bought the pregnancy package on Marketplace and are wearing it, detach it. If you just got some hokey message from a guy, ignore it. Either way, you aren't really pregnant. It's role play, so you can walk away from it any time you want.
  12. non-mesh object with script using PE functions = (NMOWSUPEF) That one got me too. :smileytongue:
  13. No, it's not possible to do that with LSL. However, in some viewers it is at least possible to create your own custom settings and save them to the pulldown menu that lists your Windlight choices in the Environment editor. That's not quite as convenient as a HUD, but it's only a couple of extra clicks, and you probably don't change settings so often that it's super annoying.
  14. Or just truncate them on the fly in your script. That's the default failsafe. It means a little more scripting work for you, but then it's one less thing for your customer to screw up and complain about later. :smileywink:
  15. There's a nice selection of suggestions (including a good video) at https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Troubleshooting_teleporting . Also, read the other excellent disussion at http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=fs_tp_fail . As Marigold says, wearing too many scripted items is one common reason for teleport problems. Another is an overly restrictive firewall. Take a good look at both of those possibilities.
  16. LOL.... Don't you love cats? Your cat turned on one of the diagnostic consoles. If you open your Advanced (CTRL+Alt+D) or Develop (CTRL+Alt + Q) menu, you'll see a selection right at the top. (I can't tell you whether it's on Advanced or Develop, because different viewers put them in different places.) You'll have to open the submenu and see which one of the diagnostic displays has a check mark next to it. UNcheck it and the display will go away.
  17. That's about all you can do .... wait. Marketplace has had some issues this week. LL upgraded software last Tuesday and have been flushing bugs out of the system since. Most people aren't having any trouble getting in, but you are not alone. Meanwhile, go shopping in world. There are great shops all over the grid.
  18. Lower case first names are very common and not at all problematic. (You should see some of the really goofy ones. How do you say "Hello" to someone named 152984001BX2?) There have been chronic problems with sending gifts through Marketplace for quite some time. It's not just you. We have had a couple of other people here in Answers just this morning with that same issue, for example. You have already found the way to resolve the problem, I see. I wish I could offer a more assuring way, but until LL can isolate the bug, there isn't one. I have not heard of a similar problem with partner
  19. To get a record of the individual items in your order, open Marketplace and click the My Marketplace menu at the top of the page. Select My Account >> Order History from the pulldown menu. If you do not receive items within about 24 hours, you should cut and paste the information about a missing item from that Order History and send it in a IM or notecard to the merchant, along with a polite message requesting redelivery. Most merchants are very kind and willing to redeliver. This happens all the time and they are aware of it. Do be patient, though. Not everyone logs in to SL every day o
  20. Nein. Tanz Clubs, Bars, Geschäfte und Einkaufszentren, die Schaffung Galerien, Konzerthallen, Strände, Parks und andere Räume für Geselligkeit, und das Lernen unterstützen alle eine moderate Bezeichnung, solange sie nicht als Host öffentlich geförderten erwachsenen Aktivitäten oder Inhalte und nicht verwenden erwachsen-Such-Tags.
  21. There have been sporadic problems with gifting from Marketplace, but they're apparently hard to figure out. See https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/WEB-3864 for one that I've been watching since last Spring. If you have relevant comments or information that might help the LL developers figure out what's wrong, please add them there. Meanwhile, get in touch with the merchant for the items you are interested in, explain the situation, and see if you can get redelivery. Copy the Tranasaction History from your Marketplace order histoty so the merchant knows what you're talking about. Most pe
  22. Premium accounts with 512m2 available tier qualify for a Linden Home. For example, if you have a new premium account — you've just joined Second Life as a premium account or upgraded from a basic account — and haven't changed your land usage, then you have exactly 512m2 of available tier. You can also use tier to buy land on the mainland or rent land on a private estate.  See >> http://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Linden-Home-overview/ta-p/700103
  23. Credit card failure Here are the most common reasons for credit card failure: The credit card number was entered incorrectly. The billing address was not entered or was entered incorrectly. It should be the same address that appears on your bill. The name on the card was not entered or was not entered as it appears on the card. The credit card is not in the list of accepted payment methods (we currently accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB, Discover, or PayPal). The CVV (3 digits on the back, or 4 digits on the front for AmEx) was not entered or was entered incorrectly. The card is
  24. See >>> http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Password_Protection for links to LL's fraud prevention hot line and other good information. ETA: Don't mind the smiley face. The link still works. It's this forum software's idea of a practical joke. :smileyvery-happy:
  25. In simplest analogy, Maximum Bandwidth is like the nozzle on your garden hose. The larger it is, the more water you can push through in a period of time. However, just having a large nozzle doesn't guarantee that a lot of water will come out. That's also a function of how much water is coming through the hose in the first place. So .... Setting your Maximum Bandwidth to a high number increases the possibility that if there's a lot of information to shove through the Internet garden hose, it will all get through. If the Internet garden hose is already as full as it's going to get, opening
