  1. Silver is a ruse backed by mainstream media to bolster portfolio buffer stocks. It's low risk as are most precious metals.
  2. Don't worry. There are more visual features coming. LL rolled out the "Mission Accomplished" banner for EEP, BoM & Animesh over a year ago even though those features are all incomplete. We can't get features to make scripting or scripted content more efficient or to create new scripted content types, but we sure can get some parsley and eye candy to distract from lack of meat and potatoes.
  3. You can also use JSON in LSL for associative indexing, but JSON handling is slower than the llList2* and llListFindList() functions even with a moderately sized JSON string.
  4. Until the mouselook control bug is fixed, I hope they hold off on promoting last week's code to the main channel else it's gonna break a bunch of guns, combat HUDs/games/applications and Linden Realms games.
  5. https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/BUG-230164 https://status.secondlifegrid.net/incidents/d0cwvj6b4030
  6. Many of those can be gamed as well and the amount of money transactions one has should determine if they are real or not? Why not just have additional Premium account traffic metric if you want to only count people actually giving LL money? I would at least like to see a live traffic value in legacy search in the same way they can show parcels for sale instantly. Why can't they update a live agent count value that replaces traffic or is an alternate searchable/sortable/choosable filter/metric? I don't want to know how popular destinations were 24+ hours ago, I want to know
  7. That has nothing to do with the move to the cloud. That was explicit introduced behavior done back in November 2019. The developer that made that change has stated in the user groups that they would like to fix that at some point in the future.
  8. "Maybe" it's a "watermark" to let the creator know if a copybotted body seen in-world used their body as the source? You'd be surprised how many creators intentionally put tiny/hidden "flaws" into their heads/bodies for this reason alone.
  9. When did he say this? He and other developers have stated in the user groups that the focus was to just get the code into the cloud and not waste time on cleanup. They did state during this process they took notes or areas of code that needed cleanup/overhaul once the move was done.
  10. That implementation of anim2bvh has major flaws, such as not being able to handle 0.0 duration, single frame animations plus the creator added stupidly large bone sizes and mandatory 3 minimum frame injection that overwrites/replaces data for animations using lesser frames.
  11. As long as there are Boomers & Gen-Xers with money who either have low expectations or no MMO experience, SL will always have an audience.
  12. Map tiles haven't worked since November 18th. Why does uptake hinge on EEP and not other things like giving creators tools to make content more efficient or to make completely new content altogether? With the two rounds of layoffs prior to finally selling Sansar, LL shed 70 employees from their 200 total.
  13. Same. It's like the average IQ of the population drops the more technologically advanced we become or is it the more socially aware/connected we become?
  14. For clarity, Ebbe said in the following interview that out of 200 Linden Lab employees, 130 were working on Secondlife. Also, from 17:30 to 20:42 he talks about LL's information campaign mindset towards unoptimized content which ArcTan phase 1 will be all about. At 20:42 he also thinks the move to AWS would be done around early 2020.
  15. I doubt you'll see that in official writing or terms anywhere. "always claimed" is as good as the words "we guarantee" coming from a Linden who hasn't been with the company since 2009.
  16. Map tiles was due to LL prioritizing it last, thus being worked on post Uplift. Aditi accessiblility has been a problem before Uplift, same with lack of new regions. TP routing seems to have been introduced after Uplift. Regions showing online, but not allowing entry has been caused by grief vectors for years. Did support explain in recent instances that AWS was to blame?
  17. This is procedural animation. It scares Lindens who can only envision a world of hard animation assets to death. Also, there is one and only one Linden that would be able to improve the animation protocol, but management has had them working things that should have been delegated to other employees for years now. This is why SL's evolution is stunningly slow. Because management will not hire people to take the workload off key developers nor will they stop tying up specialists with tasks someone else should be doing. I can't believe that, accordingly to Ebbe's own admission, tha
  18. Did you sit on an object belonging to said person at some point in the past? Camera tracking permissions can be granted and stored indefinitely like animation permissions through sit vectors. See https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/VWR-13228 IMO, maintaining permissions of someone other than object owner should have been disallowed (intentionally broken) years ago. There are better/legit/efficient ways of granting and using other user's permissions that don't depend on harvesting vectors. But griefers, "attack HUD" creators and owners/historians/archivers of ancient/ine
  19. There is this feature request. I don't think you'll like the prospect much either. Technically, it was available the last week of May 2012, but suffered release setbacks when LL only closed a permissions loophole on one RC channel instead of grid-wide and during that weekend and especially on the following Monday, June 4th, 2012, a day that will live in infamy, people all over the grid were mass teleported all over the place and to the cornfields. There was no defense unless the destination region was full. After that, the release suffered major bugs for over two years such as breaking
  20. In AFK places they really don't have a choice. That is one of the major problems with AFK. AFK operators explcitly put furniture and thus, AFKers and guests, all on the same parcel to garner traffic. If traffic wasn't a factor to an AFK place's success they would use private rooms for everyone.
  21. LL may or may not offer their own official crypto currency and/or exchange in the near future. If they do, they will shut down anyone that would be competing with them even if it is an in-world service that allows purchasing crypto with L$ and no other currency/token exchange.
