2020 Simulator User Group week #5 summary

Honah Lee Waveblog post

Not a lot to report; much of the conversation was around general ideas for improving aspects of SL scripting (e.g. script-to-script communications) and speculations about the migration of SL to AWS.

Simulator Deployments

As always, please refer to the week’s deployment thread for updates.

  • There were no deployments to the main SLS channel on Tuesday, January 28th, although there are reports some regions were restarted.
  • An RC deployment is planned for all simulators on the RC channels for Wednesday, January 29th. Server update 2020-01-23T00:43:42.535128 is specifically aimed at making “rolling the grid more gentle on our non-simulator servers”. According to Simon Linden, speaking at the meeting:
    • These updates shouldn’t be user-visible, but should help improve the issue of starting scripts following a simulator re-start.
    • They *might* result in improvements on region crossing between regions on the RC channels, but this is by no means certain.
