SL viewer gets “request teleport” feature and group eject confirmation

A new SL project viewer was released on September 3rd. The Snowstorm Project viewer 3.6.5.280476, brings with it a number of issue fixes, and includes two capabilities new to the viewer:

  • A “request teleport” feature (STORM-1838) contributed by Jonathan Yap, which allows users to request a teleport form another user (currently with caveats – see below)
  • A group eject confirmation pop-up (STORM-1952), submitted by Cinder Roxley, which some may be familiar with from using TPVs such as Firestorm.

Request Teleport

The new request teleport capability, which I first reported on back in week 4, requires both viewers to be using the code for it to work (so for the time being it is limited to the project viewer). Where this is the case:

  • Select the person to whom you wish to teleport (from your Friends list or Nearby list, etc.), and select Request Teleport
  • Enter a message in the pop-up, if required, and click OK.
Select the person to whom you wish to teleport (from your Friends list or Nearby list, etc.), and select Request Teleport. Enter a message in the pop-up, if required, and click
Request teleport: making a request

At the “other end” the recipient of the request will receive the request as an initial pop-up notification and within CHUI:

Receiving a teleport request - pop-up and CHUI message
Receiving a teleport request – pop-up and CHUI message

The recipient can than either accept the request, sending a teleport offer, or reject it, in which case no message is sent.

The teleport offer is again displayed in the requester’s viewer as both as an initial pop-up notification (below) and within CHUI.

Note again, that the system will only work where both viewers are running the new code (e.g. the Snowstorm project viewer for the time being). If someone on a viewer with the capability to someone using a viewer which does not have the teleport request code, the request will not be received / displayed.

Group Eject Confirmation

The group eject confirmation sees the official viewer get a new pop-up asking for confirmation when ejecting someone from a group, in order to help with issues where the wrong name is selected and ejected.

Again, as noted above, the release notes for the viewer provide a full list of updates in the viewer.

  1. I enjoy the request teleport feature, can’t figure how Rlv will deal with it or if there will be any sort of conflict but its easy then typing to some on im, pls tlp me:)
    Still feel at 1st it will be a bit messy as many trying to tlp someone will end being teleported instead and hope it will not break any on Rlv!
    The eject feature is welcome and needed!
