2022 SUG meetings week #13: summary

The Endless Graveyard, February 2022 – blog post

The following summary notes were taken from the Tuesday, March 29th, 2022 Simulator User Group (SUG) meeting. It forms a summary of the items discussed, and a video of the entire meeting is embedded at the end of the article – my thanks to Pantera for recording it.

Server Deployments

Please refer to the deployment thread for any recent updates.

  • Tuesday, March 29th: the Main SLS channel simulators were restarted, but without any update deployment.
  • Wednesday March 30th: all RC channel will be updated with simulator release 569934, which primarily contains a update to support the move of profile information back to the viewer, hopefully allowing the Legacy Profiles viewer (see below) to move forward.

Available Official Viewers

All official viewer pipelines remain as follows:

  • Release viewer: version version – formerly the Maintenance J&K RC viewer, promoted Monday, February 28 – No Change

In Brief

  • Note: this meeting was another live music event, so discussions were limited. So very little to report.
  • BUG-231876 “llRequestSimulatorData() frequently and silently fails” – a fix has been developed for this issue and is currently with QA for testing. It had been hoped this would be ready for a deployment this week, but unfortunately this is not the case.
  • Some have been reporting an issue whereby their Friends list reports all (or most) contacts as off-line when logging into a region the first time after a restart, requiring them to TP to another region entire for a Friends list update, or (if they are the region holder) restarting / requesting a s restart for the culprit region. LL have no information as yet on why this is occurring.
