Here is what I did for my purposed I need to calendar only for 5 days and divided into 24 segments/day that is half hour blocks. I was able to create a grid with 5 columns and 24 rows. I can even get the cell number I clicked on. Now to exactly center the prim I decided that I would determine the region coordinates of the lower left corner of that prim( here is where I am having trouble) and then add offsets to it which is predetermined and stored in a list. I am not able to get the region coordinate of the lower left hand corner of my prim. How would I do it? Is this the best way to do what I am trying to achieve? You can always get the position vector for a spot you toch by asking for llDetectedTouchPos. That's easy. When I want to know whether someone has clicked within a square area on a prim, though, I just ask vector Pos = llDetectedTouchST(0); if (Pos.x > 0.2 && Pos.x < 0.3 && Pos.y > 0.0 && Pos.y < 0.2) // User has touched somewhere in a box bounded by <0.2,0.0> and <0.3,0.2>

  3. If you want to use temporary textures with V2, you'll have to log in to the Aditi grid and upload there. The upload won't cost you anything, but you can't bring the textures to the main grid. If you want temporary textures on the main grid, use almost any TPV instead of V2.
  4. Is that where they went? I look at SLU's Scripting section every once in a while, but it's pretty dead. I figured that the SLU crowd just didn't attract many active scripters. Not that I need another group (I like it right here), but it's nice to know that people are still alive over there. :smileytongue:
  5. llRotLookAt works fine in that situation. See this thread, in which I asked the same question last month. BTW, for those who answered then, my floater is doing very nicely. >>> https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Squirting-Seal-Pool-Toy/2523899 Thank you. :smileywink:
  6. Yup. It's busted. >>>> http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Second-Life-Server/Known-issue-with-granting-revoking-permissions/td-p/975953 . LL is working on a repair to the server software, but for now that feature is misbehaving. If you look at that thread, you'll see a workaround you can use if you only need to deal with one or two friends. Otherwise, just wait.
  7. There's nothing official called a "family," but there are plenty of informal groups in SL that may use that term. I'd suggest hanging around with people that you enjoy being with and see if you can join whatever group they are in. If you don't know anyone yet, use your Search function to look for groups that sound interesting. Contact a group's owner by IM and go from there.
  8. You could try a couple of things. First of all, see what happens if you turn off OpenGL Vertex Buffer Objects (VBO) , which you will find in the Graphics >> Hardware Settings area of Preferences (CTRL + P). That feature is intended to speed up rendering of textures, but it does wonky things on some people's viewers. The other thing to try is either disabling or de-emphasizing Glow, which I know is on the hit list for a lot of people. You can turn glow off entirely by going to your Advanced menu (CTRL + Alt + D), opening Debug Settings, and typing in RenderGlow. That parameter is normally set to TRUE by default, but you can turn it off by clicking FALSE instead. You can keep Glow alive but de-emphasize it by changing RenderGlowStrength instead. That factor is normally set at 0.35, but you should get less glow by decreasing that number (I think). If those debug changes do not work, you can always reset them to their defaults before trying something else.
  9. Welcome to the club. I can't count the number of times I have deleted my own things (including my house, last month) by mistake, and I have deleted friends' buildings more than once too. A good friend of mine once accidentally returned ALL of one guy's things from our sim, including several buildings worth of stuff. These things happen, and we all panic. Fortunately, they are usually reversible. Follow everyone's good advice (ask your friend to look for it in her Lost & Found folder when she stops laughing), and then advise your friend to LOCK the house (with the lock button on the Object page in Edit) so you can't do that again. :smileyvery-happy:
  10. Talvez meu tradutor está tendo dificuldade em entender Português, ou talvez eu só não entendo o que você está tentando fazer. Por que você nunca quer bloquear ou silenciar alguém em sua lista de amigos? As pessoas usam essa opção para que eles não ouvirão o discurso ofensivo. Se você bloquear um amigo, o amigo vai naturalmente supor que você encontrá-la ofensiva. Essa é uma mensagem cruel de dar um amigo. Se você não quer manter a amizade com alguém, removê-la da sua lista de amigos. Se você quiser apenas para mantê-la de ver que você está no SL, desmarque o "olho" símbolo ao lado de seu nome.
  11. Well, you can log in to SL first and use your in-world Destinations Guide or any LM or SLURL you have handy. Or you can fix Firefox. Go to your Tools menu in Firefox and select Options. In the Options window, click the Applications tab and scroll down to find secondlife files. Highlight it and then, in the right column, use the dropdown menu to select "Other ..." and then specify the viewer that you are using. Until you do that, Firefox doesn't know what to do with a SLURL or any other URL that it custom-designed for SL. Making that small change points it to your viewer, which DOES know.
  12. Doing the Character Test rebuild doesn't work, eh? Try going to your Library >> Clothing >> Initial Outfits folder in Inventory and wearing any of those outfits. It should have the same effect as doing Character test, except that it's loading a different basic av on you. If that still doesn't work, I suspect that there's something borked in one of the avatar files on your hard drive. Before you try reinstalling your viewer, remove all files associated with this one manually. Writing over them with a new install may just pass the bug along. See http://blog.nalates.net/2011/02/22/second-life-clean-install/ or http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/doku.php?id=fs_clean_reinstall
  13. Hmmmm... My response to your last question was about as simple as it gets. Crash logger errors usually indicate that there's something wrong with the SL viewer you are using. Deleting your user_settings folder, which contains your Preferences, often clears things up because it forces your viewer to create a new, clean folder the next time it fires up. If that didn't work, chances are that the viewer itself is damaged (or that your computer does not meet LL's recommended standards). Take Darkie's advice and try a different viewer. Before you install it, however, be sure to completely remove the one that's there now instead of loading a new one on top of it. That way, your new viewer will avoid inheriting any damaged files. Meanwhile, please do check https://secondlife.com/my/support/system-requirements/?lang=en-US to be sure that your computer meets LL's standards and is capable of running any viewer.
  14. If you don't read anything else, read this >>> http://secondlife.com/my/whatnext/basics/index.php?lang=en-US Welcome to Second Life, liko.
  15. It may be a temporary suspension, if you are lucky. Call the number, as suggested, and watch for e-mail.
  16. 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. This is essentially free land. If you don't use it for a Linden house, you use it elsewhere. If you want more than the 512, then you pay for the extra. It's all part of the deal in becoming Premium. If you go back to Basic, the deal's off. No house, no free land. You're welcome to rent and do all of the other things that non-landowners do, though.

We don't often get chatty here, but I think of the forum regulars as friends and am always pleased to see when two or more of us chime in on a challenge. Even better, when one of us poses a knotty problem that the rest of us wish WE had asked.
  18. It is hard to give helpful answer without knowing what sort of error message you are seeing when you try to log in. Let me take a wild stab, though..... Does it say "You cannot log into Second Life from this location" ? This error message may also appear as: Login failed. Second Life cannot be accessed from this computer. These messages generally indicate you have been blocked from the Second Life servers by Linden Lab as the result of: Documented cases of fraud Use of Second Life by a minor Exceptionally flagrant abuse activity Note that someone else in your household may be responsible for this activity, not necessariliy with your account. You should have received an e-mail from LL explaining the action and telling you about your options for appeal. If you cannot find it, check your e-mail's spam filter. If you believe that this is an error, submit a support ticket via the support portal. To help customer support determine what block has been placed and why, include in the ticket your Second Life account name and any Second Life accounts that log in from your location. If that is not the error message you are getting, please add more information to your question by clicking the Options link in its upper right corner and selecting Edit.
  19. Do you have a question? You can add information to your post by clicking on the Options link in its upper right corner and selecting Edit.
  20. Open Preferences (CTRL + P) >>> Network & Cache and look for Chat Logs Location: Shows the location of your chat logs. (Chat logging is enabled in the Privacy tab.)
  21. It is possible to do, but it will take a lot of work on your part. You can create a group for all tenants in your parcel and then give each of them a prorated portion of the parcel's total prim allowance. Because they are all in the same group, they'll end up having building rights in each other's shops or apartments, and there is no straightforward mechanism for enforcing the prim limits. As the landlord, you may find yourself having to respond to complaints about who gets to build where. You can get a script to keep track of how many prims each person in the parcel owns (or can hire a scripter to write one), and then you can decide how to deal with the information if it shows that someone is running over their allotment. The bottom line is that you can't expect to be an absentee landlord.

  23. I suppose in theory you could make a device that sits in a region and then uses llGetParcelDetails(Pos,[PARCEL_DETAILS_NAME]), looping around possible values of Pos in 4m increments to make a list of all parcel names, then removes duplicates, and moves on to the next region. Talk about a colossal and endless pain in the butt, to say nothing of impractical ........
  24. If you want help with one you are writing yourself, ask in the LSL Scripting Forum >>> http://community.secondlife.com/t5/LSL-Scripting/bd-p/LSLScripting. Otherwise, post your question in the Wanted section of the Commerce Forum >>> http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Wanted/bd-p/Wanted or look in any of the shops in world (or on Marketplace) that sell basic scripts.
  25. No. If you want to raise your arms, you need an animation that does it. If you are lucky, you can find one in the many animations stores in world and on Marketplace. If not, you'll either have to convince an animator to make (and sell) you a custom animation, or you'll have to learn how to make one yourself. Once you have the animation, you can trigger it with a gesture or put it into a script that will activate it when you want it.
