Jessica talks Firestorm and Second Life

The Carter and Dar Show, hosted by Carter Giacobini and Dar Writer, isn’t something, I confess, I watch on a regular basis. There’s no bias here on my part, it’s just that I don’t have time to take everything going on in and around SL to take everything in.

However, on May 3rd, they broadcast a show featuring Jessica Lyon, recorded just after the release of Firestorm 4.4.0, so I tuned in to take a look. The show is just under an hour in length, with the interview with Jessica starting at the 12:50 mark.

During the show, Jessica talks about a range of topics, including: Server-side Baking / Appearance; the HTTP updates, very LOUD users, viewer bugs (and how it’s not always easy to catch everything), the “missing prim” issue and the interest list, why the z-offset Quick Preference is no more in Firestorm, and more. She also explains some of the reasoning behind Firestorm and why it focuses so much on features and capabilities in comparison to the official viewer.

So, if you’re looking to find out more about Firestorm and what might be coming down the road, take a look at the Carter and Dar Show.

  1. It’s always good when developers reach out and explain what they make. Jessica offers some useful insight into recent and future developments; combined with the tutorials on YouTube, it’s a great sign of support shown towards the users. I think this kind of user support is an important reason for Firestorm’s popularity.
