What's up with Downoad Raw terrain?

Post by Kayaker Magic » Mon Nov 30, 2015 9:17 pm

I'm trying to download the raw terrain files from a world. I turned off Advanced Megaregions, then I went to each sub-region, Brougt up Region Details, clicked on the Terrain tab, clicked "Download Raw terain".

It takes a while, I know. I wait. Some of the regions download in a minute or two. Others never complete.
If I foolishly get bored and walk into another region before it is finished, when it does finally tell me it has finished, the file never appears on my hard drive.
I've tried logging out and back in again, resetting the world, and some regions NEVER EVER finish downloading the raw texture map.
How can I make this work reliably?

Hi Kayaker,

Linden Lab designed the viewer to use UDP when uploading or downloading RAW files. This means that the entire process is very brittle and is very likely to fail if the viewer or the sim need to handle more than sparse network activity while the RAW file transfer is taking place.
