Rant about scripts and lag

Most often then not lag is blamed on scripts. And very often you see people implement restrictions on scripts that can be used on sims, events, fairs, etc. What is with this? Are scripts to blame for most of the lag or is it just that people tend to be scared of and blame that what they do not understand? Fact is that most people don’t really understand lag, even those that spend a lot of time checking the top scripts on a sim. I mean, who did read the manual? Who spend time reading the Wiki? Who after reading everything fully understands it? Short answer is barley anyone. Which results in people assume that scripts with more memory cause more lag then scripts with less memory. This however is a complete falls assumption. I can write you a single extremely small script that will cause 100 time more lag

One more annoyance solved

When i teleport to my backup store ones in a while i always end up on the fixed landing point. And then i have to teleport again to go to my building platform. Sure this is like only 1 more click but its still a some what annoyance. Well that problem is solved now. The Other Fixed Landing Point automatically moves my avatar to my building platform as soon as a land. So fast so that i don’t even see myself landing on my fixed landing point (as it moves my avatar before the loading screen is gone). If your also annoyed about landing on your fixed landing point have a look in my main store or on MP for the Other Fixed Landing Point.

The secret of good pictures

Making good pictures in SL can be hard. Even more so when you don’t know anything about windlight settings and how to use them. Apart from your graphic settings your light settings are one of the most important thing for good looking photos. And simply setting your viewer to midday, sunset, etc doesn’t cut it. With environments things become a lot easier do. So easy that with my latest HUD (The Easy Environment HUD) all it takes is one single click, as i have already added those environments that greatly enhance your pictures. The following pictures is taken on midday (standard midday from the viewer). The next pictures are taken with with a custom environment (included in my HUD). You should see the drastic difference (i have not changed any graphic settings what so ever).

The Lag Monitor for Clubs & Venues that makes sense

We have all seen this boards that tell you who is the most laggy avatar on the sim. Many of them unfortunately show you the wrong data and don’t show you the most laggy avatar on the sim but instead the most scripted one. But as a club owner, or someone that knows about venues in SL one must ask “whats the point of a lag monitor?”. I mean, most Club owners are happy with the people they get and the last thing they are going to do is complain or eject there visitors. And lets not even talk about stores. Only a crazy store owner would start ejecting its customers. So yes there are these boards, but most of the time we can say they are nothing more then fancy decoration. Because who actually goes somewhere, sees one of this boards and thinks “hmmm i am so going to
