  1. i knew it was a mistake to use that phrasing, i figured people would stop reading entirely after the first 5 words and i see that's exactly what happened.
  2. no kidding, LL stopped making improvements almost entirely a long time ago, these days they've switched to actively making things worse with the noob last names people get when registering now, the absolutely awful UI redesign, the still insanely high priced land/tier cost that simply isn't justified for something that is certifiably in the free to pay MMO death throes. i'm not joking at all either, SL has been being maintained like it's a greedy platform to extort money from people and give nothing in return for quite a few years now, they literally never make significant improvements at all and i bet they only have people in the office when it starts to come apart at the seams. where is support for modern PC hardware, seriously? 4GB is an absolutely abysmally small hard cap to place on v-ram, they've never once done a single performance optimization since i've joined secondlife either and it's been overdue since your avatar rating stopped governing how many lindens you made.
  3. i've yet to see literally any reason at all to support or be interested in project sansar at all in any way. using revive you can get HTC Vive working in secondlife, the only problem is using the UI because of how many *****ing retarded special rules are applied to how you interact with secondlife while in VR, none of which make any sense, for instance, try to open local chat in VR, it's a genuine challenge but you can do it if you really try and it works perfectly fine, it's a pain in the ass switching between interacting with the world and the communicate window, a needless, stupid, idiotic pain in the ass that would be trivial to fix simply by treating VR the same as normal clients and allowing people to limit the functionality to their needs themselves. additionally and to expand on the initial point, i don't want to try sansar, i don't care what it is or how it's supposedly going to be better, if it's a separate grid disconnected from the main one i will simply never bother with it, it's pointless, i've invested a lot of time, money and effort into secondlife and it makes absolutely no sense to split further improvements into two distinct applications and grids, i guess LL really wants to give up on SL if they want to push sansar this hard, it doesn't make any sense. it pisses me off so much though, they would literally have to do absolutely nothing except stop giving the current VR support in secondlife special treatment that winds up rendering it completely and totally useless and i'm not joking either, poseball usage in 3D is absolutely mindblowing, as is just walking around and looking at nicely created environments. i actually feel a bit like a weirdo when i use the HTC vive on secondlife, because it makes my attention so telegraphed and so impossible to miss, i'm usually found looking way too closely at things just marveling at it all and it may sound strange, but the difference between having depth perception and not never gets old. everything i'm talking about in this thread is me with keyboard and mouse, no *****ing garbage stupid wand controllers, room scale would be nice but i'm not even gonna bother trying at this point, simply being able to use local chat as normal would be such an insanely huge improvement to VR in SL it's not even funny, you'd be able to interact with people you meet again, what a novel concept that would be, communicating, in a social game, mind blown, table flipped! i've tried with the stupid wand controllers for anyone interested and they worked just fine for me, however, i saw absolutely no benefit to using them and i was able to be faster and more precise with my mouse, as always, in fact, they're significantly worse in at least one way: you have to remember which one is emulating your mouse, bad design, i suppose, only one of them actually controls it like it should even if the other is turned off and with both being identical, you either have to vandalize your expensive hardware with a mark to tell them apart or fumble back and forth to find out which is the dominant controller before you can use them.
  4. if the magic box containing the listed item is not rezzed somewhere (anywhere for the most part) in SL the item will never be delivered untill the magic box containing the listed item is placed.

  6. with a lot more errors, less eloquence and a bit more off topic.
  7. i'd have to agree and also possibly argue that since shared media almost undoubtedly would require someone be logged onto SL to view it that the stance technicality resides on even further shaky footing regardless of who technically is hosting the content in the end. to reiterate: say someone does this, starts showing everyone they can the video (or whatever it winds up being), you (probably at least) literally can't view it outside of SL, so the fact that the content's ability to be able to be partaken of resides wholly inside SL the organization providing the hosting is quite totally irrelevant, because the content resides entirely within SL itself. now, it can be argued that it could be viewed easily outside of SL, it may be a case by case decision of the person posting/hosting it, i'm really not sure however. edit: actually... nevermind most of that, i just re-read and i was a bit off base the first time around, wondering where i got the video aspect from now actually... o_0 teach me to post at 3am in the morning
  8. yeah i was hoping there was some way to do it directly on the sky itself. i guess i'll create a feature request JIRA. i really want to avoid doing it with prims at all or particles even (particles as media textures are a seperate hell all their own to script btw) to bypass the draw distance issue. hmmm.... re-reading it seems like you may mean to imply that draw distance could still be an issue even doing it straight on the windlight sky itself? not entirely relevant but possible worthwhile other information: was visualizing this to be a full sim size theater type of thing, have seats in a large circle over a good bit of the sim and they force your cam straight up at the sky when you sit...
  9. no you understood the question well enough i think. i guess to be honest, the main thing i'm asking for here is if it's possible to do if you buy a new simulator. i know the ground texture can be a custom one you've made if you arrange so beforehand with LL, so it has to make me wonder if the same can be done for a sky texture instead. beyond that, if anyone comes up with any clever ideas to do the same thing within the constraints outlined in the OP i'd love to brainstorm a bit beyond that, heck if anyone happens to find out that the sky texture has a UUID in the library or elsewhere, that could be useful too.
  10. ideas? i had the idea to use a custom uploaded sky texture to display videos for like an outdoor ampitheater type thing, pretty stumped on how to go about it though so far. if i purchase a simulator new from LL i know i can use a custom uploaded texture for the ground, but what about the sky? is it possible? i'd like to avoid megaprim solutions and (probably) most anything relying on actual prims being the display as draw distance limitations would make that a hassle. also like to avoid anything requiring client side modifications to client files/etc. it'd need to be usable for any and every noob out there to be much useful (providing they've enabled media of course) just looking for clever ideas really in case anyone can think up anything, not requesting anyone build anything at all for me.
  11. set in your preferences to be able to select where you login to before you login, it'll add a little dropdown box with options to login to: your home. your last location. a sim name you typed. mute the object or person if it keeps happening and realize that messages just like that are nothing more than scare tactics.
  12. QFT also, just for informational purposes, you could try a WHOIS on the IP you found with the media stream exploit mentioned elsewhere in this thread, but even at that point it's fairly pointless since the WHOIS will return information about the person's ISP (internet service provider) who hopefully are forbidden giving any personally identifiable information about who was using that IP at that given time, unless a law is broken. also, most routers act as a hardware firewall, for the most part, this means that unless a computer behind that firewall requested the data from the IP requesting data of an IP the router manages it will be ignored. in other words, most routers block all connection attempts not initiated either by them, or by a computer behind them. when you use your web browser to surf the internet, you are initiating those connections and as such the router doesn't ignore them, this goes for most internet using applications also.

Incidentally enough, there are 16 year old girls on this Flog. all i can honestly say at this point is; i <3 you daria, i'm guessing you're a taurus as well and one who's good with it and prefers blunt, concise, to the point manners of speaking. GOTTA love that, mandatory. honestly mean all of that too, i'm exactly the same way, albeit possibly with a bit less sucess of wit, people who beat around the bush confuse me to a point even. directness FTW, if i'm off to take a shit, i'll tell you i'm about to go drop some logs lol.

  14. http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e37/Krunchmastaflex1/successful-troll-is-successful.jpg just for reference, this is precisely where the conversation degraded into petty name calling and slander. in case anyone missed it Message was edited by: Cheetah Hammerer(apparently the quote button does nothing currently.... at least for me...)
  15. tl;dr response: because, they assume LL doesn't by rule of thumb generally investigate the relevant data. also, why is it impossible to move the typing cursor to AFTER this smiley? (was meant to be directly behind "data.") missing quote, eh.... oh well, re-read OP if needed... smiley... still... winning... URK. Message was edited by: Cheetah Hammerer
