Quick Update

Just a quick update since I haven’t posted in a while. The site is now hosted on Dreamhost and things seem to be working smoothly. They have a lot of features that will allow me to integrate things in Second Life with the web. I did a quick XML-RPC test with a chat logger (now disabled in-world) that logged chat to a database.

I’m currently working on another project that will integrate Second Life with the web – more details will be posted soon.

Things are moving pretty slowly as far as new products and updates are concerned because real life work has me for 45 hours for 6 days a week, but I’m still checking my email and the forums for any questions people have for me.

Interior Elevator

Features:

  • Realistic elevator logic.
    • Queuing system
      • Floors that request service are placed in a queue.
      • Elevator stops at queued floors based on its direction of travel and proximity.
      • This results in Second Life’s most efficient elevator.

    • Reliable movement.
      • Elevator car doesn’t get stuck or freeze if configured and placed properly.
      • Smooth and steady with minimal jumping.
    • 10 buttons for floor selection.
      • Buttons appear or disappear to avoid confusion depending on how many floors you have configured.
    • Open door button.
    • 200m maximum distance between ground floor and top floor.
      • This is achieved by using a separate “controller” object which ties your elevator car in with your boarding stations.

Sales Reporting & Delivery System updated

Vendor updated to 1.2
*Restructured the Pay box. It now only presents ONE button which is the price of the item it’s selling.
*Front face of vendor is now full-bright when online, and not full-bright when offline.

Sales Server updated to 1.01
*Reduced likeliness of the sales server not sending out nightly reports every night.
*Your sales logs should not be affected by this update.

I also changed the format of my release notes since there’s a lot of objects with different versions in this package.

New Prefab – Meridian

The Meridian is Union Micro’s first offering as an office building. Its modular design allows you to start with a lobby, place as many stories as you like and then top it off with a roof. Each story is a spacious 10m tall, allowing you to have high ceilings or split it into multiple floors. The footprint for this building is 20m x 20m, or you can knock out walls and enlarge it since it’s fully modifiable and copyable (in case you change your mind).

Although it’s labeled as an office building it will also make a great shop, or even an apartment building! Keep in mind that this is a shell – it has no interior walls or floor plan. The only level that contains a floor is the lobby, however a floor is included (along with the floor texture used in the lobby) if you want to place it throughout the building.

Sales Reporting & Delivery System updated

Update 1.1
* Updated JEVN integration script. It now works with JEVN 3.x thanks to its API support.
JENC sales are now reported since the script uses the API.

* Integration scripts (JEVN, SLX), and the Union Micro Vendor script now report their locations as “Region Name (x, y, z)” instead of “Region Name (x, y)” as before.

* Changed the “Server Key=” entry in the _UMconfig notecard to “SalesServerKey=” so be sure to double check that if upgrading.

* Added the “LogSeparator=” entry to the _UMconfig notecard. This must match the Log Separator specified in your JEVN _config notecard. This MUST be changed from the default “-” log separator — I suggest using the | (pipe) symbol. Make sure this is not in any of the item names that you’re selling.

* Fixed documentation error for Sales Server – Log Types were reversed.
