  1. Shug, I just released Radegast 2.8 which should address this, add server side baking, etc. See release notes.
  2. PRIM_LINK_TARGET is the best thing since sliced bread. Just rewrote 1 script resizer to use it, and it increases perfomance 50-fold. Nicely done!

At least thats the best way I can describe what you've been spouting. I've used the feature to drop PE as low as half of what it was originally. And I've used it with mesh in similar ways by using a prim as the physics hull. Just because you don't know how to use features doesn't mean you should discourage others from using them. /post I don't invent things. I test them out and report on my findings. I took a throne chair and attempted to use the new physics f
  4. From the mesh sim release notes: "Child prims can be set to have no collision shape (do not contribute to collision of object)" Do not use this feature! It will always increase your prim count, sometimes as much as 10-15 times. Testing on simple 22 prim linkset it inceased prim count to 212. Also do not link mesh components with regular prims. It will also likely 10 double your prim usage on those objects.
  5. Yeah, performance on homestead regions got severely degraded with this release. Full regions work perfect.
  6. I don't believe that Yoz sees any value in user feedback, despite all his proclamations to the contrary. Let me explain why. There is a bug in Viewer 2 search "Find always resets to start page" - https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/WEB-1819 which is behavior that most people don't want. It's also commerce crippling since it is a common pattern when shopping to type in some search words and teleport around. This bug is simply a death nail for a merchant that is not on the first page of search. So the conversation with Yoz goes something like this, you explain to him the above, and he'll say "Ho
  7. It has been rather disappointing experience reading this blog post. Its contents were not that surprising but the tone felt downright Orwellian. The pleas how Linden Lab wants to hear its customers sounded to me like the announcement about raising the chocolate ration to 20g a week in 1984. Discarding JIRA votes falls into this category. On one hand Linden Lab wants to improve the communication, on the other it wants to discard very valuable information on how important their customers think certain issues are. More professional organizations actually pay third parties to obtain such informat
  8. Welcome Rod, Impressive looking resumé, wish you and all of us all the best luck
  9. External LSL editor feature is pretty sweet!
  10. I'm very impressed with this demo. Despite Wallace's claims it works fine from here in Denmark. There is no control input lag at all, alt-zooming around works as well as in the installed viewer. It seems that they have datacenters around the world for low control lag. Well done, this technology shows a great promise.
  11. Nice to hear that the group limit will be raised. It was long overdue. However the whole section about "Reduced Lag" is not very accurate. The sim freezes that you call "lag events" are still there and there was no visible improvements in server 1.42. Perhaps that is something in the pipeline that hasn't made it into the release server yet?
  12. Really Q? That's the only comment you have on the feedback? To accuse some of us deliberately misunderstanding what you said? I think you are confusing disagreement with deliberate misunderstanding. Disagreeing with your opinion does not imply malice. I think a much more constructive approach would be if you commented on some points raised in the thread here instead. For instance, I would really like to hear how do you explain the fact that the most popular viewer used to connect to SL is the one with most options in it?
  13. Q, The question of options came up during that OH meeting when the issue of chat focus in Viewer 2 was put forward. The chat focus is one of the most often mentioned source of irritation. While your reasoning sounds sound in theory, in practice it is often impossible to go with your solution c) where one interface satisfies all needs. You cannot possibly both satisfy the needs of people who prefer the WASD navigation, and the people who want to be able to just start typing and chat always, without some sort of toggle between those two behaviors. I know that you dismiss the validity of JIRA v
