Disappearing places by Huckleberry Hax

Miss D Ember:

You have to walk this to believe how grand it is.

Huckleberry Hax writes a postcard farewell with excellent pictures.

I’ve walked those pixel streets and encourage you to try it before it is gone.

Rarely a month seems to go by without news that some place or another in Second Life is to disappear.  I read recently that The Trace by Kylie Jaxxon, a beautiful, windswept beach sim which I wrote about in May last year, is to close soon.  Leka by Kate Bergdorf, an island of peaceful spots and footpaths which I wrote about in February, has also just closed, to be redeveloped over the next couple of weeks into an art gallery.  There are countless stopping points in my long SL journey which now no longer exist.  The original Blue Angel Poet’s Dive shut its doors many years ago, as did its replacement (the latest version now resides in Chelsea).  Sawtooth Mountain Resort, which landscaped for a couple of years the ground level of the mainland sim I’ve lived in since May 2007, is now just a distant memory.  And does…

Miss D Ember:

Ooooh, cannot wait to see the features ported to Firestorm from the Quick Graphics project viewer, which presents the new Avatar Complexity capability and the ability to save and re-load graphics settings more-or-less on the fly.

The following notes are primarily taken from the TPV Developer (TPVD) meeting held on Friday, September 11th, 2015. A video of the meeting is included at the end of this report, with any time stamps in the following text referring to it. My thanks as always to North for the recording and providing it for embedding.

Server Deployments – Week 37

As always, please refer to the server deployment thread for additional information.

  • The Main (SLS) channel did not have any deployment / restart during the week, largely due to the fact the one deployment in week #36 was to a single channel (BlueSteel), which was rolled-back on Thursday, September 3rd
  • The three RC channels all received a new server maintenance project, comprising internal simulator fixes.

Upcoming LSL: llGetAttachedList()

Should we worry that outsiders associate Second Life with adult content? Google says: No, because they don’t

Miss D Ember:

Wow, this is worth reading. SL reputation searches done by a RL pro.

Understandably, long-term residents that invest time, energy, money & hopes into the Second Life platform don’t like it when the media associate Second Life with negativity or fringe interests that might misrepresent how they see the virtual world. Our umbrage escalates to outrage, when this negativity – and the misconceptions that breed it – are seemingly perpetuated (and some might say “regurgitated”) by Second Life residents themselves – who ‘should know better’.

If you’re concerned about Second Life’s reputation, my aim in writing this post is to assuage your anxieties. I’ll do this by showing that the world at large does not share the view that many Second Life residents assume is held by outsiders. Furthermore, I’ll offer some reasons why we think it does have this perception.

Perceived negative associations dampen word of mouth

Why does this matter? Because I believe that one of the things that dampens the growth of Second Life (and there are several – mainly…
