  1. Unfortunately, the limits make the land look fake. The sim butts up against a null ocean and I can't lower the land to the waterline so now there's a ridiculous cliff. There has to be a way to beg for special dispensation. I know LL has a very small SL staff anymore, but this situation is just stupid.
  2. Can I get the limits removed or modified by LL for terraforming my sim? The default height in some spots is too high and I’d like to lower it a few meters to match the rest of the sim. Nothing extreme.

  4. That's unfortunate. But typical of LL. Even if I knew what the algorithm is for the filter it would give me a clue. I am NOT going to try and guess which word it is. I'll simply have to find other ways to promote events.
  5. Popper wasn't the word. This is such bullship. No wonder no one posts events. Someone just please give me the list of the 7,096 words that aren't usable and I will comply. I'm not going to spend an afternoon guessing what displeases the censors. But here's the funniest part: I can copy and paste the listing here and it's now online. WTF? Another themed section of Rocky Waters AmuseBent Park is now open: “Eat a Strudel Land!” It’s Sweet. And Savory. And Salty, too! Fly and whirl aboard the fantastic food-featured attractions: The Jiffy Popcorn Ride Lettuce Fly Pizza Toss The Krispie SCREAM Factory Tour And more! FREE ADMISSION. Balloons for the kiddies. Soylent Green for the crazies. After you fill up on Eat a Strudel, explore the other lands, too: “Wacky Doodle” and “The VooDoo Poodle!”
  6. I attempted to post an event today for my amusement park on a moderate sim. I didn't put anything adult in the description, but the autoresponse was that I had indeed violated community standards somehow. Great. Which word or phrase red-flagged? What? No one to tell me? How the heck am I supposed to fix the listing, if I have no idea what the offensive word or phrase is? Below is my list of "I'm guessing it's this" words and phrases. If you know which one is the culprit, please reply. BalloonsEatStrudelEat a StrudelSweetSavorySaltyJiffy PopperPizza TossKrispieSoylentWackyDoodleVooDooPoodle
  7. Thank you! I was afraid of that. If I used the keyframed function, I'm assuming the sphere would lock in place? I want it to be able to roll freely within the box as it moves.
  8. I know a physical object, such as a sphere, will stay within a standing non-physical prim, like a hollowed out cylinder, and simple roll along the path if the cylinder is tilted enough for gravity to kick in. Here's the Q: If a physical object (the sphere) is sitting inside an open non-physical box which is scripted to move along a straight line, when the box edge meets the sphere, will the sphere stay inside or will it rip through? I'm not able to get in-world to try this out for a few hours, but if someone knows the answer off the top of their head, I'd appreciate it. Otherwise I'll just have to wait. Biting nails, Rocky
  9. This question comes from a non-scriptor, so be kind. I remember back in the day that object rezzers (like fish rezzers, bubble blowers, etc.) were considered hard on a sim. And that they seriously impacted performance/lag. I have a sim, and I'd like to add fish to my undersea tableau, but if it's going to screw things up, I won't. I also have a few particle fountains. Is there a formula or rule of thumb for how much/often one can use rezzers? What's the current opinion on this nonsense?
  10. Thanks. It used to work well on my sim filled with items competing for attention (2007ish). Can't understand what has changed, especially since the sim I'm using is pretty empty. Would the fact that the orb is colliding with other prims be a factor? Even if it's sitting on a flat surface/prim?
  11. I've been gone from SL for a few years. I used to be able to drop a rotation script into a physical hollow orb, sit in it, and spin like mad. (I invent carnival rides.) Now, I get a jerky twitch effect and no spinning. Has the physics changed or is it the weight gain from my new mesh AV? : ) If it has changed, is there a new basic rotate physical prim script I can steal from someone? Thank you, Rocky "NotAScripter" Rutabaga
  12. Google doesn't need to worry about losing customers. Nor does Microsoft. They have monopolies and actually have products that work decently. And besides, they don't know my birthday, so why would I expect them to send me anything? I do get coupons/gift cards from several other major brands on my BD. It's kinda stupid, but it's called a "loyalty program." Some of these programs work and keep people loyal to the brand. SL is still struggling, at best. You would think they'd try to keep customers. A robo-call to my sim, or automatic email ain't no big thing to program. I started when 6,000 avatars in-world at the same time was a huge deal. SL was an actual community where you built friendships with people from around the globe. I've stuck with this because I enjoy building and learning new things. I could even be a model for the type of customer they should be marketing to. But alas, they've ever asked me why I play or why I don't. What my RL age has to do with this is irrelevant.
