Re: "The Wizard" is Ready To Receive You!!

I will try to resist giving anything away, but I definitely urge people to give The Wizard a try. Writing the scripts for this world (and adapting the gorgeous particle scripts from Kurk) to give shape to Karima's amazing ideas has been a wild two-month ride. I think you will like the result! It's s...

Does Kitely and/or OpenSim have Experiences?

Do either Kitely or OpenSim in general, or both or neither, have the "Experiences" feature that SL describes for instance on https://community.secondlife.com/knowledgebase/english/experiences-in-second-life-r1365/ ? I notice when I go into the Experiences section of Firestorm while in Kitely, it jus...

Re: What actually happens in a script when the sim restarts?

Thanks to all! So that's my case (4), and I do agree that seems to be the thing that happens. On the 30-second limit: that was probably me :) investigating some similar things. It seems that if a handler doesn't exit for 30 seconds, the entire script gets reset. Which is mostly fine with me, actuall...

Re: What actually happens in a script when the sim restarts?

Thanks for all of this! That pretty much agrees with my own experience. To make my specific remaining question more concrete, consider this (very artificial) example: default { state_entry() { llSetTimerEvent(30.0 + llFrand(30.0)); // Wait for 30-60 seconds } timer() { llSetTimerEvent(0.0); // Turn ...

Re: Monitoring and optimizing your world's performance

The link to the Optimization Guide in the first post of this thread gives me a "Page Not Found" error now; has it moved?

EDIT: Karima had it for me :) it's now at https://kitely.atlassian.net/wiki/space ... erformance

Re: What actually happens in a script when the sim restarts?

Thanks, that's really interesting. I don't think it's literally a script reset, unless I'm completely misremembering things. I have scripts that handle being reset just fine, but get confused sometimes when the sim restarts. I guess I should add a changed() handler that does an llResetScript() on CH...

Re: What actually happens in a script when the sim restarts?

So a line line: visitorcount++; // won't work, because if the sim resets it will revert to 0. Why does it revert to zero? Is the script actually reset, as if an llResetScript() happened? Or are variables set to default values without the script resetting? Or something else? This is why I asked the ...

What actually happens in a script when the sim restarts?

Sorry if this is a frequently-asked question or anything, but I haven't stumbled across an answer: what actually happens in a script when a Kitely sim shuts down, and later starts up again? Especially if the script is in an event handler (or a function called from one, or etc.) at the time. I'm pret...

Re: Has the event timeout limit changed?

Ah, thanks! In that case no scripts were probably broken. I should tour around and see if any existing ones have been getting reset for this reason all this time and I just didn't realize it! Might explain some things...

Thanks again for the helpful explanation!
