Re: A different mindset...

One of the notions the late lamented Blue Mars talked about was having some kind of static or very slowly updated "on the horizon" type imagery of other worlds that just showed major builds. You couldn't go there directly or see what was happening in real time, but it was to give an impression of a ...

Re: A different mindset...

Isn't there a technical issue with adjacent sims having to display the neighboring sims as they change? I thought that was a real CPU hog, not to mention transferring avatar state on sim crossing.

Re: Village community: concept discussion

Not the most useful post, but you might consider "Over Beithe" rather than "Upper Beithe", vis: http://www.thewallops.net/ Ah, but where I come from there are places called Upper Broughton and the like, hence the initial names. Worth pondering though :) From your link, "Old Beithe" and "New Beithe"...

Re: Towns?

The biggest problem with anything of a city nature, though, is population. Rather, the lack of. It is going to take time until we have enugh people in Kitely to have any city-thing feel like its more than a ghost town. But that's my point. Spreading everyone out over separate islands just empathize...

Towns?

Having been in SL for some time as well as a day 1 member of Blue Mars (RIP :( ), I do think that virtual communities such as Caledon are a real attraction for virtual worlds. IMHO, that was one of the serious mistakes Blue Mars made, not that they didn't make a host of others. They spread their mem...

Re: C#?

Hi Ralph, C# scripts are disabled on Kitely for security reasons. I was afraid of that. It does makes sense, there's not much of a sandbox concept in C#, but LSL is so horrible.... :( Ah well, perhaps someday JavaScript - particularly the new Hamony, will be added since it could be sandboxed, and a...

C#?

I've done a lot (too much IMHO) LSL, which basically I hate as a programming language. Looking at the OpenSim documentation, C# is supposed to be available. Since I like C# a lot, my questions are: Can I script in C# in Kitely? What version of C# is supported if any? Is there any documentation or ex...

Is there a way to display minutes remaining?

This is probably very obvious, but I can't seem to find a way to display how many minutes I have remaining in the viewer. I expected it to be in my profile somewhere, but can't find it.
