Littlefield Grid Meeting February 7th 2014
Sunday 9th February – the grid was down for the day, with the grid server update. SQL server has it’s own server now for regions. This will increase speed & capacity. We had purchased a new server that was waiting to be used, we try and keep a year ahead of things to keep the grid running smoothly.
OS has decided to fix a glitch, which is causing some issues right now. They are not testing to make sure things are right which is why we have some hiccups at the moment.
We now have avatar physics at the moment ie: bouncy boobs. If you want bouncy boobs Walter has the box to make this happen.
Sometimes with this release you may see somethings slightly off on your avatar, but without this release a lot more people would have been cloudy.
We tested bullet physics, but are now back on ODE it worked fine in the front end but on the back end it caused issues. Bullet has the fix for walking up stairs without a ramp on them, but we had a bug so had to remove it because it was a large memory hole and was crashing sims. So now we are back on ODE.
Cinder Biscuits is no longer in the virtual world community. this is not a good thing she was behind the FS viewer code for OS so this is a sad thing for us. so no upgrades etc at the moment for OS Firestorm. We still have a connection with Jessica Lyon and she will try and do some upgrades for OS as she can. We will support Firestorm still plus you can use Cool Viewer & Singularity, but Darkstorm is not to be used on our grid, copybot viewers are not to be used if you are seen using it you will be automatically banned. Ash has implemented a wonderful feature for our grid to prevent people removing content from our grid, they cannot hypergrid away with out content now. The items will disappear when they HG back to their grid and they will most likely crash on return. Well done Ash 🙂
We are happy to announce we are opening a new public region – Sweethearts
It is a romantic region for dancing and meeting up. It is formal sim, suits & tuxes for men and gowns for women. There are some available in the main building for you to take. We have small gazebos placed around the sim, each has a cuddle bench and dance machine. They are placed so that no one in other gazebos cannot hear you, for some privacy. It is not a sex sim just place to meet and dance etc. There is a stream playing romantic music on the region. There also is a TP button at Littlefield main mall to access the region.
Littlefield Funtime Roller Skate Center located in Littlefield East, (new region still under construction)
One Sunday a month have a skating party there
8pm to midnight PST/grid time
Date & time to be announced soon
