Empty Land.
Day one of developing my region. Review one on day one. "Empty land!" Yes. It's a very Zen place.

A martial arts student went to his teacher and said earnestly, “I am devoted to studying your martial system. How long will it take me to master it.” The teacher’s reply was casual, “Ten years.” Impatiently, the student answered, “But I want to master it faster than that. I will work very hard. I will practice every day, ten or more hours a day if I have to. How long will it take then?” The teacher thought for a moment, “20 years.”

This is day one of building. It might take me another 10 years, but it will not take me 20.
Fake traffic in opensim

When did the custom begin that region owners have round-the-clock Alts or NPC´s sitting on their Sim to generate traffic?
It's a pity that you can no longer believe the ranking

Mime Animations Needed
I always wanted to do a flash mob of mimes at dance clubs in SL. Unfortunately, there were no mime animations to be found. But I've never given up on the idea. There must be some mime animations around in OS, or someone who can make the standards - blowing up a balloon, being trapped in a box, and walking on a very windy day. As a plus, mime animations would come in handy when communicating in OS without a translation HUD.

Mime animation makers, if you can help, speak up...
Oh wait....
I think it would be fabulous if OpenSimWorld had a translator. I see people frustrated with one another replying in different languages. I know it so complicated to copy and paste to a google translator but I see people snipping at one another getting their knickers in a twist. LOL.

Cutting the crap
I know there is freedom of speech and all that but when is enough is enough? Everytime I come on here that assholes feel the need to bash whole grids with unfounded lies and keep at it for freaking two weeks! I have a sim that is HG enabled, I like to check on how it's doing in the rankings, I also come on here to check what events are going on, what new items are available in what shop......NO instead I constantly read useless bottom feeders bash an entire grid over.....JEALOUSIES.....I am sick and tired of seeing this shit on my feed. I was always taught that if I had nothing good to say to not say anything but this has gone on for too long, I want something done about it, thank you!
Clarification: Closed grids & Civility
Clarification for closed grids: Opensimworld is a directory of Hypergrid destinations. Closed regions will not appear in the rankings or directory (just like we don't list Second life regions). Regions that were once open and closed are not deleted, but may remain in the directory for 1 year. They won't appear in the rankings and they are marked as inaccessible, but their pages still exist

Additionally: this only applies to regions that are closed to hypergrid. It is OK to list a region that requires group membership to access for example.

Civility: Be civil

Posters who call names or harass people will be banned from posting for 7 days to indefinitely.

My two cents on the Copy/Sharing Drama going around
Hey guys,
I'm pretty sure we are all tired to read about the dramas regarding the re-sharing of the items grabbed from other places, which are not our own. So here's my take on all this.
1. Despite the fact that they are taken from SL, loading them, texturing them, animating them and curating them takes time and nerves. Please appreciate the time put into that work.
2. The people who are sharing them with the rest of us are not charging anything for the items, so if they feel like they want to have a certain control over who is taking their stuff and what happens with it, it is their right because see point no 1, you know...time and dedication
3. Let's say the item you got a while ago gets updated. Of course you would say..."so what? I go get another copy!" BUT the store you got it from got it as well from another store, so you do not manage to get to the original store who offered it originally.
4. Why would we want same items in every store we go? I for example am tired to go all around OS and see same item over and over again!
5. If you think is no big deal because it is anyways copy from SL then you do it on your own! Go buy the items first, spend a lot of money to get the original, then go through the whole ordeal of copying it, loading it, texturing it and place it in boxes or arrange it a bit and then you can shout and scream your frustration.
6. How many of you have ever thought about the fact that those people who offer you the free stuff might feel a little more appreciated if you would return to their store to just see what's new and get other items you might like? Or maybe it is the traffic they want? Is really not a big deal to open our minds and think a bit deeper
7. Sacrarium grid is not available to everyone, that is a fact. BUT if you want to redistribute items you got there, be curtaneous and ask the owner of the item if they might consider offering it to you? You never know what the answer is, right? Human nature is giving, therefore I am more then sure that you can achieve more with talking first rather then just taking and not care.
Let's respect eachother a little bit more and give the Cesar what is his! Appreciate the fact that they are taking the time and the will to offer their items. And share more love, rather then items!
Last but not least, I saw some messages about closing the sims... our guest! If you do not want us we surely won't miss you either...and btw...donating means freely giving not requesting or expecting it!
So please, respect everyone so they can respect you back!
Blues, nothing else!


Surfing Sims

Does anyone know whether there are any good surfing beach sims in OpenSims?

Asking for a friend...

Whats wrong, where are the Opensim i liked?
oh my lord, I love to wake up, to sit here at the pc, to open OSW and to be able to see, no, nothing has improved; everything like yesterday; the rush continues! no matter who, no matter why, the main thing is to find a reason to be able to scold an avatar, a grid or a group! WHY?
Musician Looking to Promote their Music
I have made a lot of songs over the past year, and would like to start getting it in the ears of people. I arrange, compose, and make the music in the songs i have made, and i even own the commercial usage rights to use and sell without paying royalties. So basically what i m trying to say is that this is my music, and I would like to start letting people hear it. I can dj the songs at a club, or even play them on the radio that has a good amount of regualar open sim listenens. So if anyone has a fit they might think is for me, let me know. I attached a link to my soundcloud so you can take a listen before hand. All the best,

Many Thanks
Thank you very much for yesterday evening to everyone who took part in our country evening. You are the best audience a DJ can have!

Open Source Hypergrid Content
I have a feeling that the other thread will disappear, so I'm starting a new one. Please excuse the redundancy.

This post was originally written in reply to Jupiter Rowland's post in that thread.

Jupiter Rowland wrote "Other names which, AFAIK, stand for legal content, but who have disappeared, are Hylee Bekkers and Selea Core whose works are somewhat easier to find but still kind of rare; besides, AFAIK, they've never put them under any license."

Hylee's boxes can still be found here and there, and she has a shop in Wright Plaza (at 158,17,21) in OSGrid. Her boxes usually included a notecard saying what license it was under (Creative commons, as I remember).

Also in Wright Plaza is one of my favorite creators -Potion Locke, aka the "Cobbler's Trading Company". She gives away a lot of texture packs under a non-commercial creative commons license. Her shop is at 119, 16, 21 in Wright Plaza.

Caro Fayray on OSGrid also releases a lot of content under a creative commons license; she has a shop on wright plaza as well. (wright plaza 48, 128, 21)

Of course, there's also Nebadon Izumi, who has a shop in Wright Plaza that is full of Creative Commons licensed items as well.

Selea Core's stuff is still around here and there as well. I remember it being explicitly released under a Linda Kellie style license (do whatever you want with it), but since there's no surviving proof of that on the web no one can really say one way or the other.

This isn't a definitive list, there's a ton of creators I haven't mentioned (e.g. Vbinnia Radek, who's region Steam is in osgrid). I've focused on osgrid because those items have been there ~10 years, and will probably be up as long as the grid is up.

To address the thread The Social Mouse made:

If you're looking for "legal" items for your business, all, some or none of these may suit your needs. A business ought to have it's own legal team to evaluate that -I wouldn't even try.

If you're looking for "legal" items out of a sense of personal ethics (which is a good thing!) I still can't guide you, except to say that all of the items I've listed were meant by their creator to be used out here in opensim and (with the exception of Selea Core) are distributed by their original creator.

I'm Han Held and thank you for coming to my TED talk

inverted colors
somehow i managed to invert the colors in my firestorm viewer... no idea what I did! Hoping it was a bug, restarted pc and reinstalled firestorm. Thought I was going crazy for a bit, that my region settings had orange water... sigh...
How to tell if your sim got hacked.
Well usually the signs are obvious. Missing items, White items, even possibly 100's of scripts missing. How do they do it? Simple. Viewers like hydrastorm and darkstorm have options such as God mode override hack, which let's the user become a god on your land. The viewers also can let someone delete items from your sim, clone items, and even take the scripts. Well that's fine, you say, my opensim blocks hydrastorm and darkstorm. Except these viewers have a feature that lets them masquerade as regular firestorm, singularity, hippo, and others... It tricks your simulator into thinking the person is not using hydrastorm, but is instead using firestorm. But there are other hacks as well, the reverse friend permissions hack, sim crashers, and more. So what's a good defense? Some packages like dreamgrid, include an option to autobackup when you like. And keep N number of backups before recycling them. Dreamgrid also makes it easy to back up your inventory to an IAR. I suggest you use features such as these, or if you're on linux, learn to save your oars from the command line, as well as your iar's. While hackers can and often do use a vpn to gain access to a sim they plan to attack so their ip cannot be traced. For example PIA (private internet access) gives their users thousands of servers to choose from, with many different IP addresses. So blocking by ip address is nothing more than a temporary snafoo for hackers. If you block by name, they come back with an alt. Also there's a setting in opensim that allows a grid owner to edit the attachments of people that come to their grid, and it's trivial to turn this feature on. To sum it up, some people are just jerks, and all you can do is backup, backup, backuppppp.
