To BOM or not to BOM

SL has arrived the point where latterly all good mesh body’s have BOM (Baked on Mesh). But what is BOM or Baked on Mesh? Well ill save you the long boring wiki explanation and give you the (al do slightly technically inaccurate) easiest explanation i can think off: When a Mesh body (or head) is not BOM you are attaching a “prim” and hide your body with a alpha layer. Skins, tattoo’s etc get added to your body with a applier. You could compare this with a simple texture changer. When a Mesh body is BOM (or head) you are replacing your body with a “prim”. Skins, tattoo’s etc get added to your body just like they would if you have the default (non-mesh) avatar. Your default body is in that scene not hidden with a alpha later but replaced by the mesh body. Lets say you get a shirt

On / Off

Sometimes a simple on/off script is all you need. Well simple for the end user as often simple means having to do a ton of things in the background so that you don’t have to. Therefore i added 2 new products. A simple Clothes On Clothes Off HUD and a Light On Light Off Script. They take very little effort to setup and work with just one click.

Finding out what add-boards work

What business owner in SL hasn’t tried add-boards before? I personalty don’t know any. How many business owners have given up on add-boards simply because they cant see any results? I personally know many. Add-boards can be great when they work, and yes, there are add-boards out there that are worth it. They are however hard to find. The biggest problem with add-boards is that finding out of they are working is in most cases just a guess. As in “did my traffic go up this week?” “then its probably my add-board”. Having exactly the same problem i scripted a Multi Visitor Counter that solves this problem and have been testing it for the last few weeks. You simple use different landmarks and or surls in your add-boards and the Multi Visitor Counter shows you how many visits you got on each landmark. The Multi Visitor Counter is now available

Environments

The new firestorm viewer and the SL viewer come what what is called Environments. This could be compared with windlight settings but is far more advanced. There is a lot to say about this new feature but to keep it short it wont be long until you see use of it in many places in SL as these environments settings can be set by experiences (scripts). If you want to know more about this feature check out the official wiki here: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Environmental_Enhancement_Project As there is barly anything out there (scripts) for environments and because i got a request from one of my customers im working on a few “enviroment” scripts. The first one you can find in my main store or marketplace here: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Click-Environment-Changer/21925616

More HUDs

My wall with HUDs was running low on space and i have plenty or new HUDs coming out very soon. So time to make some space free. Added today a new Sim Scanner HUD that lets you scan all parcels on a sim even when scripts are disabled. Very useful for finding rezz areas and other things. If you have an idea for a HUD that you cant find anywhere in SL. Drop me a notecard in my mailbox and maybe you will find it soon in my store.

Firestorm 6.4.13 (63251)

The new not so great firestorm is there and if you want to or not you will be forced to update because they are blocking older versions from connecting to SL. Important note for people with RLV items:This version of firestorm is bugged and many RLV commands do not work like they should. If you are using any RLV products it is recommended you downgrade to a older version of Firestorm until a new version comes out that fixes these bugs. The older versions can be found here:https://wiki.firestormviewer.org/fs_older_downloads

RLV is not dangerous

There is a common misconception in SL that RLV is dangerous. If you refer to dangerous as getting your clothes taken off without being prompt by some sort of dialog message then well yes it is dangerous. However if you refer to stealing, deleting or spying it is not. Any script in SL has the capability to spy on your local chat messages and location. RLV enabled or not. In this regard RLV does not provide any additional functions apart from maybe making it a little easier. RLV can not read your private messages (IM’s) just like any normal script cant do that. RLV cant take your money.RLV cant delete your inventory Scripts can be dangerous. This however has nothing to do with RLV and you shouldn’t just attach or rez any scripted object you get. Especially when some random unknown person sends you something. RLV brings many extra features

Partner Teleport / Follow HUD

The Ultimate grid wide teleport and follow HUD that doesn’t require RLV is finally there. And probably the first and only one available as of now. With all the features enabled it will be impossible to lose your partner ever again, even when they are AFK. They will automatically teleport with you, follow you regardless of how fast you run or fly and even teleport over sim borders. All there’s features are optional and can be turned on or off. Even do this HUD looks quite simple at first glance, under the hood it is far from it. It uses a very robust communication system and implements high grade encryption to keep everything working and secure.
