Okay, not cash per se, but L$!

The hiatus is over, and every Saturday, Fulda Gap is again hosting PvP combat for those OCS mercenaries who can handle the challenge - or are just so broke that shooting friends and strangers alike for money no longer raises sticky ethical questions.

Event times are:

Each Saturday at 12:00-14:00 (12pm-2pm) and 18:00-20:00 (6pm-8pm)

All times are in SLT.

Prize amounts are as follows:

1st Place: L$1000

2nd Place: L$500

LL tagged this issue as 'critical' so I am a little bewildered as to why a fix for this hasn't been out yet. Therefore, you're all getting helicopter updates this weekend.  The Alligator, Hind and Black Hawk are done, the Viper and WAH-64 are next.

And the six of you who read the update notes and manuals will notice that you can turn off the anti-littering self-delete by selecting"AutoDel" from the options menu. This option is intended for those who wish to display the aircraft on land they lease or group owned land, where they are not the technical landowners.

This feature will be coming to the land vehicles shortly as well.

As was brought to my attention, some OCS vehicles were registering damage upon sim border crossings. After investigating this issue, I determined that the vehicle was colliding with the pilot themselves upon crossing, which is obviously unwanted SL physics behaviour, and filed a bug report with Linden Lab.  They have been able to reproduce this bug, categorized it as "Major" and have triaged it to MAINT-3517.

So a fix is on the way. I'll update this when I find out when it will be deployed, most likely to the RC channels first.

Hi All! Just wanted to write a few words about why the site and some services such as OCS in Second Life have been flaky the past couple of days.

Our web server had a bit of a problem yesterday (Monday, July 15) that took approximately 10 hours to resolve and get everything back up and running again.  This took down both the site and services, unfortunately.  We are also working on migrating the current site to new software, so there may be periods of time where the webpages are not accessible, but services (such as OCS) remain functioning normally.

Sorry for any inconvenience or confusion, and thank you for your patience and understanding.

The latest update to the main grid servers has caused a bit of an issue with a long-used function, namely llApplyRotationalImpulse. This is a function I use for such things as shell casings on eject to give them a little bit of random spin. The error has no effect on the function of products, it just produces these annoying error messages. LL should be fixing this in a server update. Should they choose to sit on it, I'll be updating everything that uses it (which is a lot of stuff) in the near future. Many thanks for your future patience. :)

If you'd like to view the JIRA on it, and hey, throw in your votes for LL to fix it pronto, the JIRA issue is here: SCR-372
