Below is a short summary of the latest Community Meeting, followed by its chat logs – which have been gently edited for formatting, to put questions and answers in bold for easy skimming, and to omit greetings and farewells and other such asides. Meetings are hosted by Estate owner NeoBokrug Elytis at 2:00 pm on the last Saturday of every month at The Potato Farm in The Wastelands, and the discussion is typically divided into three main topics: Estate, Game, and Roleplay & Events. Everyone is welcome to attend!
➳ For a while, we had hit our first goal of a 5% increase in occupancy before February 2.
➳ We lost some of those gains over the holidays, unfortunately.
➳ We’ll need to meet that initial 5% again, and another 5% gain in occupancy, by March 1 to prevent having to shed or restructure a region.
➳ Spread the word! The Wastelands has always grown through word-of-mouth.
➳ The two-week vs four-week buy-in change seems to be encouraging new residents – but also turnover.
➳ There’s a rash of new and potential landowners not reading the Covenant, especially regarding adult activity.
➳ The inworld Covenant will be updated to be very explicit about how you’re not allowed to be explicit.
➳ New landowner-exclusive perks are planned.
New Weapons Coming Soon:
➳ Two new weapons are about to be released…
➳ One will be craftable.
Visitor Center Planning:
➳ Now that Giftmas and WL13B are done, the Visitor Center is the primary focus – after a few small game updates.
➳ Once the Visitor Center is complete, new visitors will arrive at its starting point.
➳ Until then, the teleport target for The Wastelands has been moved out of The Bunker so that new arrivals can see their surroundings better.
➳ The Visitor Center will be interactive, and visitors will have to pass certain tests and challenges to proceed.
➳ Passing these tests will also reward you with prizes!
Sit-Teleport Error Fixes:
➳ When people with grievous amounts of scripts TP’d into a region, it could effectively pause the HUD’s scripts while still allowing you to move.
➳ When the scripts worked again, the HUD would see that you were farther from your previous position than should be possible – and it would break.
➳ Neo’s put in another new update to hopefully stop this false-positive error.
➳ If you still encounter this bug, send Neo a notecard with the time, the error as seen in the popup, the SLurl of where it happened, and a description of what you were doing.
Upcoming Landowner Perks:
➳ Game-based landowner perks will be more like conveniences and cosmetics, not game-balance-affecting changes to damage dealt or EXP gained.
➳ After the Wild Plants system has been completed and in play for some time, landowner-exclusive personal farms will be possible.
➳ Perk suggestions are welcome, as long as they’re not about massive game advantages! Contact Neo with your ideas!
Upcoming Death Changes:
➳ Features of the Environment Enhancement Project will be used to change how things look while you’re dead.
➳ Making the HUD no longer break if somebody shoves your corpse.
➳ Making teleporting-on-death optional.
➳ Saul the Food Trader is still dead.
ROLEPLAY & EVENTS:
➳ WL13B took place on January 17-19, and was awesome. Thank you to everyone who instigated an event or attended one!
➳ Mutant Drum Circles happen every Monday! The next in-character edition will take place Monday, February 3 .
➳ February’s Barrelhead Bazaar will happen on February 1.
➳ Want to host an event? Not sure how to organize it? Apo will give pointers!
➳ Apo is thinking about giving the bar of The N a proper name. Suggestions welcome!
NeoBokrug Elytis: IT’S… TIME.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Welcome to 2020 everyone! We’re 13 years old now! For those who are new year to these meetings, we discuss the three main aspects of the estate (estate, game, and role play & events) with time inbetween each category for questions and comments. Typically the last section is an open floor discussion unless I have to chew up some time at the start to say some official stuff.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: WAHOO!
NeoBokrug Elytis: I should probably stick that into a gesture or something. :)
Candide LeMay: for those who are new year?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha typo
Ztar (ztar.magic): :)
NeoBokrug Elytis: Anyway, to start with estate stuff out occupancy has been up and down since we met our last 5% goal in November. Since we met that goal I pushed the next goal to March 1st. However, we’ve actually lost some occupancy from that 5% goal and will need to make it up as well as that additional 5% to avoid significant changes to the estate.
NeoBokrug Elytis: In summary, we have until March 1st to meet these occupancy goals and maintain them, otherwise I will have to start making changes to the estate that affect residents.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell) gulps
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): oshit
Aposiopesis Fullstop: :(
NeoBokrug Elytis: So once again it’s important to use word of mouth to bring friends in and oldbies back.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Even if we meet the goal on that March 1st deadline, we still have to make one last push for what I consider acceptable. So yeah, we’ve got a lot of work ahead of us as a community. But we’ve got 2 months for a bit of a push, and I will re-evaluate how much time to add if we can maintain that March 1st goal.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I don’t think the goals are impossible to reach, but I think it will take a lot of effort.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Also in estate news, we just had our WL13B party last week, and I don’t know about you guys and gals — but I am still a bit tired from it. :)
NeoBokrug Elytis: Thanks to everyone who hosted events, and everyone who came to party! I had a blast, and I hope you did too!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: SO exhausting, but in such a good way…. :D
Ztar (ztar.magic): :)
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): It was a super party, thanks for putting it on!
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): recovery month
Inspector Dooley: Oh so THAT’s what it is. I must still be tired from WL:12 ;)
NeoBokrug Elytis: Backtracking a little bit, and concerning the 2 week instead of 4 week tier changes:
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
NeoBokrug Elytis: As I suspected it IS attracting more people, but it’s also a bit more turnover — because those people aren’t staying. I think anyone new might not be reading the covenant. I had some dude ask about land during the party last weekend, conviniently while I was in the middle of hosting events.
Beezle (beezle.warburton): reeding am hard
NeoBokrug Elytis: He said he was naked, I told him to put pants on, he said he did, then fucked off for a day and never got back to me. Then the next day he’s bugging me during the Junkies, and someone sent me a screenshot where he was naked. I was just like wtf. So I banned him.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Already super high maintenance and not even a resident yet!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: >_<
Beezle (beezle.warburton): o.O
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn) quickly puts clothes on
NeoBokrug Elytis: There were some other people who bought land and had problems with the no adult stuff rules and just never paid tier, and never responded, and never came back
Candide LeMay: not just clothes, it must be pants
Beezle (beezle.warburton): we’ll have to put pants on alla chav’s gotes
Inspector Dooley: I am officially jealous. They never send ME naked pictures.. :( And I’m even trying!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha!
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): what about make one sim naked sim?
NeoBokrug Elytis: So — because of those reasons I am going to change the inworld covenant to be very fucking stupid-proof blunt about those rules. AND include the actual covenant URL.
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): (pls dont)
Dexter Bogdanovich: spontanous idea: make a simple convenant quiz, if approved new residents get an additional week
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha nah
NeoBokrug Elytis: The punishment for not reading the covenant is I reclaim your shit.
Candide LeMay: do you have pants on YES NO
Aposiopesis Fullstop: When you come out, your shit is gone.
Storm Thunders: ooh convenant quiz!
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): NO WILLIES signs
NeoBokrug Elytis: Actually, I have hardly ever had to force reclaiming someones stuff because they don’t read the covenant.
Baalzuni (houndstrikerx6): if this was an adult sim people would be naked more often
NeoBokrug Elytis: Just probably less than 5 times in 13 yars.
Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter): I ain’t got no pants on, ain’t got no pants on I ain’t got no pants on on the dance floor
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): sometimes under my trousers i got none pants on
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): but baked on mesh fixed that
NeoBokrug Elytis: Now that Giftmas and WL13B are over, I am going to get back to work on the visitor center in my spare time.
NeoBokrug Elytis: After I do another couple game updates. :)
Aposiopesis Fullstop: wooo!
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): ooo
Storm Thunders laughs.
Inspector Dooley: I’m a bit tickled that we’re sitting here with an entire community, inside of an arena on barrel benches, talking about pants
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha
Inspector Dooley: This is the stuff SL was made for.
Swiftly Streeter: Speaking of the Visitor Center, why is the Default Teleport Location on the ground in front of the signs instead of where it used to be, In the Bunker where the Visitor Center is?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Okay I think that’s about it for estate related news and updates — any questions or comments?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Swiftly: Because people are too dumb to climb a ladder — and I want them to see that the place is vast.
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): i suspected the answer would be “people get stuck in the bunker”
Beezle (beezle.warburton): o.O
NeoBokrug Elytis: Once the visitor center is done, they’ll be dropped off there instead.
Swiftly Streeter: maybe make a little parcel down there, and a sign you can click on to “go to the Visitor Center”
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ðгɑєѕìą Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa) is reading what is going on while she eats her rl dinner ~
Storm Thunders: I’ve seen a project lose newbies because they wandered into a lake and couldn’t figure how to get out.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Nah, the visitor center serves a purpose.
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): to be fair i fell in the sea 3 times on my first day in sl
NeoBokrug Elytis: People will have options what to do in the visitor center, it’s easy to escape.
Inspector Dooley: The amount of dumb in new residents within SL is not to be taken lightly. I’ve experienced enough of that managing IAL ;)
NeoBokrug Elytis: Even old accounts with last names, have a lot of trouble.
Candide LeMay: well it’s not good to be trapped in a box when the textures are not loading
Candide LeMay: so i think it was a good move to put it above ground
Swiftly Streeter: I have not looked in the visitor center recently. When I did you could teleport to places through the portals, but there was no way to teleport back. Is there now, or will there be?
NeoBokrug Elytis: The visitor center will be a skybox, so a LOT less lag initially.
NeoBokrug Elytis: The explore section won’t bring you back. That’s it’s intent. People will get a landmark though upon first visit to the estate. If they decline it they can just get another from the visitor center.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I can only do so much hand-holding. Plus if people don’t want to read, that’s sort of on them. :\
Swiftly Streeter: I think of a “visitor center” like I might find one at a National Park. With signs pointing the way and a map link on the area showing where it is.
Avatar0fWoe: sorry for interrupting, someone who can’t climb a ladder, it doesn’t make much sense to be walking around this place idk
NeoBokrug Elytis: The estate is too big, and changes too often to afford a return trip. Plus I don’t want little warp portals at destinations to return to the visitor center. If they can’t figure out how to use a landmark to get back, they have bigger problems. The visitor center is there to orient people about the estate, it is not a tourist bus ride.
NeoBokrug Elytis: And part of the explore sections concept, is to change it occasionally for variety.
Dexter Bogdanovich nods to neo
Dexter Bogdanovich: at mine an idea of wiki test is growing. i dont like to support newbs that dont even open the wiki ;)
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): slips you a fiver to make them tp into my shope
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ðгɑєѕìą Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa) agrees
Storm Thunders: it’s a balancing act between trying to remove as many barriers as possible without making it maddening to hold hands to keep them.
Inspector Dooley: Well, see it like a website – the first few seconds on a website are important. If someone gets lost or feels too intimidated to explore it, they might be lost forever
Inspector Dooley: But you might hook them if they feel welcome, and its intuitive
Dexter Bogdanovich nods to dooley too
NeoBokrug Elytis: I am not a big fan of tests, but one area will have rewards for a test. The RP wing of the visitor center is getting THE MOST work out of all the wings as a favor to the RP community here. The way we RP is different than a lot of SL, so we need to explain the big chunks of it. It will have a little quiz HUD with freebie rewards for those who pay attention and interact.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Prizes! Woo!!
Ztar (ztar.magic): can locals play that quiz too? :P
NeoBokrug Elytis: Once the Game wing gets a rework, you will NEED to complete certain tasks as you would while playing the game to advance.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ðгɑєѕìą Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Oh nice!
Inspector Dooley: (This RP DOES require pants) – Unlike anything in SL!
NeoBokrug Elytis: Absolutely.
Storm Thunders: prizes! :D
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ðгɑєѕìą Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): ree pants?
Candide LeMay: the P in RP stands for pants
Ztar (ztar.magic): :)
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ðгɑєѕìą Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Free*
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ðгɑєѕìą Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): haha
Ztar (ztar.magic): Read & Pants!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha, yes!
Beduino Ruben (beduino.ruben): lol
Storm Thunders: +100
Inspector Dooley: +1
Dexter Bogdanovich: rolepants
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ðгɑєѕìą Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Yus
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): hahah!!
NeoBokrug Elytis: The Estate wing, the RP wing, and The game wing will have the most interaction. The explore wing is specifically to just be a way out of there. People can pick a destination.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Now I want to make parodies of those library READ posters. Only… well, also those, but also PANTS.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Any other questions about estate stuff?
Baalzuni (houndstrikerx6): what about those in shorts
Inspector Dooley: We can keep that shorts
Storm Thunders: if you do, I will happily add some pants themed posters to my display!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Nudity-occluders.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Shame curtains.
Candide LeMay: what are the comming perks for being in the WL group?
Ztar (ztar.magic): no questions…ideas are bein worked on, time will tell
Beduino Ruben (beduino.ruben): bella domanda
Beduino Ruben it>en: good question
galaxie (galaxie59): Maybe some cheaper land options can be made available at some point?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Ahh yeah I forgot about group cleanup I promised. We already have a few existing perks, double time at the healing masheen, access to all of the assets at The Heap.
Dexter Bogdanovich: a 50% exp bonus for wl group members would be fair
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): hahah
NeoBokrug Elytis: Cheaper land will never happen. I am doing my best to keep things affordable and realistic.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha 50% no way.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ðгɑєѕìą Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa) smirks
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): free pants
Inspector Dooley: Lava immunity
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Cheaper land will only happen if LL makes land cheaper – and like hell they’re going to do that.
Dexter Bogdanovich: exp is against alts, not against rewsidents
Inspector Dooley: pssh
galaxie (galaxie59): I undersatand, but not even like tiny parcels. haha
Candide LeMay: it could be 50% exp bonus for exploding crates
Aposiopesis Fullstop: There are tiny parcels.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I would rather keep game perks to convenience only things. Nothing huge like EXP bonuses, extra damage, etc.
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): crates explode more prettily for wl residents
Candide LeMay: or that
NeoBokrug Elytis: Maybe when I learn to mesh perhaps special skins of weapons.
Inspector Dooley: Hats
Inspector Dooley: Hats Neo
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Ooooh, cosmetic perks…
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): unbridled rage flirts back
Candide LeMay: headpants
NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha
Dexter Bogdanovich: 50 bv free food for residents weekly then, maybe
Dexter Bogdanovich: ;)
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ðгɑєѕìą Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): :D
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): FREE CANDY
NeoBokrug Elytis: I am open to ideas, but game advantages are probably a non-starter. :)
Dexter Bogdanovich: YES
Swiftly Streeter: Free Goats
Dexter Bogdanovich: ok later^^
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Breaking the game balance for people who can’t afford to put realworld money in is… not a great way to make them want to stick around and buy land if ever they can.
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): the honour is enough reward for i
Baalzuni (houndstrikerx6): extra damage to WL group members or non group members sounds like it would be busted
Baalzuni (houndstrikerx6): tbh
NeoBokrug Elytis: There WILL be one aspect of the game that only residents can use, and that’s AFTER wild plants, which is personal plants (farms)
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Ooooo…
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): i will do free beautifying for wl residents
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): whispers: oooO!
Dexter Bogdanovich: wl game gold member, with platinum upgrade option
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ðгɑєѕìą Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): YES!
Ztar (ztar.magic): growzzzz :)
NeoBokrug Elytis: Farms / mines / crafting stations. Those have all bneen on the whiteboard for years, and may stay there for a while if this year is mean to me.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell) has 2 green thumbs!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ðгɑєѕìą Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): So want to grow stuff now
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): cc has 4
Ztar (ztar.magic): :P
Dexter Bogdanovich: creepy mutants
Beezle (beezle.warburton): freee spa day!
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ðгɑєѕìą Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): I have however many vines I have
Candide LeMay: we should be able to steam other resident p(l)ants though
NeoBokrug Elytis: Wild plants first, so people have resources to make their own farms.
Candide LeMay: *steal
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hopefully you don’t have to spend time molting a region or repurposing things or something instead of working on that.
Candide LeMay: but steam too
Dexter Bogdanovich: farms. meh. what about new guns?
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ðгɑєѕìą Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): guns bad, plants good
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): i dont combat but i eats
NeoBokrug Elytis: Yeah, if I have to make changes that affect the estate — then that will definitely slow me down.
Storm Thunders: or say use spraypaint on your gun to make it gaudy haha
Baalzuni (houndstrikerx6): How about certain DOT’s being contagious if you’re too close to people with them
Inspector Dooley: Just watch when those farms lead up to Potato Launcher tech
NeoBokrug Elytis: I have two weapons just about ready to put into the game. If you were paying attention to Swayne, you could have seen it (if swayne rendered for you)
Baalzuni (houndstrikerx6): has that ever come to mind
Candide LeMay: lavapants!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Ooooooooo….
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): \o/
Storm Thunders: ooh potatoguns
Aposiopesis Fullstop: I’ve got a question there.
Dexter Bogdanovich: there is no lava character in game
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): radiation should kill me too yeah
Swiftly Streeter: Speaking of Lava, shouldn’t the fumes do damage if you stand in them for a time?
NeoBokrug Elytis: That would be too mean swiftly
Storm Thunders: mutants wouldn’t mind the fumes. now the rest of us…
Dexter Bogdanovich: damage in variosu things would be funny
Irk (shannonwilsonbell) records the moment Neo thought something was too mean.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Are those new weapons going to be craftable? I really think we’d benefit from having new scrap and new craftable weapons, not just stuff we have to trade for from Alden. Rewards for direct gameplay and recipe-trial-and-error, instead of sorta at-a-distance trade chances.
NeoBokrug Elytis: One of them is.
Baalzuni (houndstrikerx6): i see
NeoBokrug Elytis: You’ll like it.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Yay!
Dexter Bogdanovich: ooh
Candide LeMay: i only remember swayne having a hammer
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Heya, Verity!
NeoBokrug Elytis: We’re already on the topic of games, today I made a fix that I hope takes care of the false positive sit-teleport suspension.
Verity Goodnight: hihi
Aposiopesis Fullstop: He only rezzed once in a while for me, if I was cammed specifically from the southwest. Thanks, SL.
NeoBokrug Elytis: That’s already out there and live. So if you have sit-teleport errors, please let me know and include as much information as possible.
Dexter Bogdanovich: k
NeoBokrug Elytis: Information I am interested in is where, when , and what you were doing.
NeoBokrug Elytis: But after a lot of bug reports and research, here’s what I think the problem was:
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ðгɑєѕìą Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): *drum roll*
NeoBokrug Elytis: Anytime an avatar entered or teleported to a region, the regions “scripts run” stat would just tank. SInce physics is on it’s on thread in simulator code, you still got to move — but the HUD was effectively on pause.
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): oooo
NeoBokrug Elytis: So, when the HUD got to run again, it saw you were farther than you should be.
Beduino Ruben (beduino.ruben): confermo a me capita spesso
Beduino Ruben it>en: I confirm it happens to me often
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ðгɑєѕìą Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Bah! D:
NeoBokrug Elytis: This effect was FAR more apparent on homesteads.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Once in a blue moon on normal regions. So I think I’ve taken care of it with todays update.
Dexter Bogdanovich: tc dan
Swiftly Streeter: yes, more regions per server on Homestead hence more lag
Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter): Only staying for one minute?
NeoBokrug Elytis: “Scripts Run” stat only became relevant early last year — LL made changes to server code. Befor you coule measure lag with the Sim Time Dilation stat. There is no function to get “Scripts Run” stat, so you have to be clever.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): I was clever once. Big mistake.
NeoBokrug Elytis: But tonight and tomorrow I am going to work on one more HUD change for the better. And I am going to start fixing the dune trapper. It’s very broke. It’s not meant to stand there and die because pathfinding isn’t working.
NeoBokrug Elytis: So expect some changes in regards to that, and some new “abilities” it’ll have.
Swiftly Streeter: (( you only used one rule of thumb Irk, should have used two ))
Candide LeMay: i’ve never seen that thing
Irk (shannonwilsonbell) facepalms
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oooh…
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ðгɑєѕìą Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Eeek!
Beezle (beezle.warburton): got gacked by one, and hud suspended on TP to Aeg
NeoBokrug Elytis: Also you will NEED 3 people doing damage to it to hurt it at all. Right now it allows less than three, but takes less damage.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Also before we get to the RP and events section
NeoBokrug Elytis: EEP is almost done. I am probably going to quickly re-work how dying works and leverage some EEP stuff.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Yessss.
Candide LeMay: done in firestorm?
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Better death!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Can that include… not having to do a deathaport? I don’t want to only enjoy that view from one of three locations.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Done in LLs viewer is when I start implementing.
NeoBokrug Elytis: I think Deathaport will be optional — I hope.
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): YES
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Oh my dang, yes.
Storm Thunders: ooooh
NeoBokrug Elytis: But the entire time you’ll be seeing things differently.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Even better.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Thanks to EEP
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ðгɑєѕìą Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): say what?
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): what is eep
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ðгɑєѕìą Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Eep!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Environment Enhancement Project.
Candide LeMay: the sound you make when you get killed
NeoBokrug Elytis: Summary: I control your windlight with scripts
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Client-side Windlight settings that can be controlled by scripts!
Chav Normalhands (chav.paderborn): ooo
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ðгɑєѕìą Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Voodoo!
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha, I was trying to see if I had a Macintosh Eep. :V
NeoBokrug Elytis: Any other questions about game stuff?
Candide LeMay: so what will happen when you die and don’t teleport?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Would it be possible for our health cap to return to 100 immediately after eating? If we end up Emaciated and have a cap of 40, once we do eat…. we have to burn all that food to heal from 40% back to 100%.
Candide LeMay: just kinda get up?
NeoBokrug Elytis: You lay there until grace is over, like old days.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Lay there and eat sand.
NeoBokrug Elytis: That’s whay I am working on today Aposiopesis
Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter): And hope no one is camping over you
Aposiopesis Fullstop: HOORAY
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): I like the old way
NeoBokrug Elytis: Drifter: hence the TP option
NeoBokrug Elytis: With Experiences I think I can prevent people from breaking your HUD.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: I really do, too. It sucked that it had to be changed because of a small handful of assbaskets.
ɱʋʈֆƴ Ðгɑєѕìą Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): or stealing your pants
Aposiopesis Fullstop: (Also: oof ouch owie, my immersion)
Ztar (ztar.magic): or taking killselfies :P
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Killselfies were great. :D
Candide LeMay: how did it break the hud?
Storm Thunders: ooh killselfies again!
Baalzuni (houndstrikerx6): if you want to deathaport to a heal machine you could propably make it so that it costs exp points
NeoBokrug Elytis: People shoved you while you were dead.
Verity Goodnight: moving while dead
Candide LeMay: that breaks hud?
Baalzuni (houndstrikerx6): or spend some to not tp and heal
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Yeah, because assbaskets would move while dead to try to get themselves to Healing Machines or their homes.
NeoBokrug Elytis: People used to cheat to move while dead.
NeoBokrug Elytis: Basically every little dumb rule that the HUD automates, is because people cheat.
Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter): That’s undead behavior
Candide LeMay: i thought the hud is disabled anyway while you wait for 25%
Swiftly Streeter: I didn’t even know Moon Jumping existed. Never hear of it in all my time on SL
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Dead and Disabled are different conditions.
The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): it would also happen unintentionally in the chaos of larger fights too when multiple people were fighting
NeoBokrug Elytis: It is, but people move.
NeoBokrug Elytis: That too
Baalzuni (houndstrikerx6): when was the last time there was even a LARGE fight on the field
NeoBokrug Elytis: If this were not-SL I would have more control over all that stuff. But since players can wear any scripted attachment, I have to make countermeasures.
NeoBokrug Elytis: LL actually had problems with people cheating in Linden Realms too
Dexter Bogdanovich: death should take all exp :(
NeoBokrug Elytis: Nah
Beezle (beezle.warburton): o.O
NeoBokrug Elytis: That’s asking for griefers.
Baalzuni (houndstrikerx6): aaaw hell no dex
Candide LeMay: only dexter’s exp
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Rondyvoo hunt, maybe? It was more a chase than a large group-against-group hunt, though.
NeoBokrug Elytis: EXP is there for YOU to earn and spend as you please.
Dexter Bogdanovich: true neo

NeoBokrug Elytis: Okay open floor for RP events and discussion. I think — I THINK, we’re going to have Warzone in Cormac!
Beduino Ruben it>en: damn buzzards, they are few and I never find them
Aposiopesis Fullstop: It really would be nice if there were more buzzards, grubs, etc. I’ve had folks not believe me that they were things.
NeoBokrug Elytis: We’re going to try, just to see how it behaves with the new HUDs
Swiftly Streeter: Beduino keep checking Cormac, Burnt Oak, and The Rot
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Ooooh, science….

Verity Goodnight: I should take more photos
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): Mutant Drumming on Monday, 1st Monday of every month! Everyone is welcome, mutants are encouraged, observers are cool but make sure you are or are not wearing a Ruin’t tag.
Candide LeMay: neo how are you using those photos from flickr?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Yeah! :D
NeoBokrug Elytis: I’m not.
Candide LeMay: are you running ads for WL or something?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: And Booze & Blather every Thursday at 6pm SLT – casual RP; OOC folks welcome to lurk behind the wall with the cool kids!
Verity Goodnight: they go in the SL group, people see them in the SL group, then come visit the place in the slurl on the photo?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: ^^
NeoBokrug Elytis: I just wanna do something nice, plus posting to the Official SL group is a nice reminder that we exist for those who follow flickr
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): I love posting to the general SL Group
Verity Goodnight: and then WE POUNCE ON THEM AND GET THEM TO STAY
Irk (shannonwilsonbell): I want to repost my dead Rudolph shot every few days.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha!
Ztar (ztar.magic): hehe
Dexter Bogdanovich: 5 uploads to sl group per day sucks
NeoBokrug Elytis: Also the official SL group has a 5 pictures per day limit.
NeoBokrug Elytis: So pace yourselves. :)
Swiftly Streeter: that’s PER Group or per Avatars in the Group?
NeoBokrug Elytis: And I like to see all the new stuff in our group anyway.
Aposiopesis Fullstop: …per…. person?
Candide LeMay: per flickr account is my guess?
NeoBokrug Elytis: Probably Candide
NeoBokrug Elytis: Any other RP or Events stuff?
Aposiopesis Fullstop: Apo’s thinking about giving the bar at The N a proper name – and suggestions will be invited! I gotta make a suggestion box. But maybe by later this year, it can get a new name – and a grand reopening party! :V
