[2013/11/02 13:50]  Serra Anansi: We had fun with the Halloween Trick or Treat event, it was a bit scattered but we made the best of our hostess being MIA

[2013/11/02 13:50]  Cee Edman: /me perks up
[2013/11/02 13:51]  Serra Anansi: Id like to invite you all to decorate your homes for the winter season
[2013/11/02 13:51]  Serra Anansi: create a book that you love (Selena will give instructions on how to do it)
[2013/11/02 13:51]  Night Crow (wolf.earthboy): It's all ready to be taken out of the attic.
[2013/11/02 13:51]  Serra Anansi: and we will have a winterfell hunt
[2013/11/02 13:52]  Serra Anansi: with a few hours on a weekend for a group tour of the homes
[2013/11/02 13:52]  Jeanette Mavendorf: Sounds like fun (smiles)
[2013/11/02 13:52]  Litta Nightfire: Yay, home tour!
[2013/11/02 13:52]  Danko Whitfield: very nice
[2013/11/02 13:52]  Cassie Eldemar (cashew.writer): wonderful
[2013/11/02 13:52]  Serra Anansi: but Id like the homes to be open to the public for week, to allow for those who cant attend a formal event
[2013/11/02 13:52]  Serra Anansi: people can gather the books
[2013/11/02 13:52]  Serra Anansi: and take them home
[2013/11/02 13:52]  Podruly Peccable: I'd like that, I get to visit people so seldo
[2013/11/02 13:52]  Podruly Peccable: m
[2013/11/02 13:52]  Serra Anansi: and display the books in a collectors book case
[2013/11/02 13:53]  Danko Whitfield: what week will this be?
[2013/11/02 13:53]  Serra Anansi: I am going to shoot for the week of Yule.. December 21st
[2013/11/02 13:53]  Serra Anansi: with the ball being the opening of the event
[2013/11/02 13:54]  Cee Edman: Do you expect a hunt for a hidden book -- or would the books be laid out readily found?
[2013/11/02 13:54]  Serra Anansi: The Yule Ball time has not been set yet, but it will be on Decemeber 21st
[2013/11/02 13:54]  Serra Anansi: I think they should be out in the open
[2013/11/02 13:54]  Cee Edman: nods
[2013/11/02 13:54]  Serra Anansi: not as much a hunt as a walking/TP tour of the realm
[2013/11/02 13:54]  Cee Edman: Collecting them as a sort of evidence of the visit being thorough.
[2013/11/02 13:55]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): Der Hut is always open, of course.
[2013/11/02 13:55]  Danko Whitfield: maybe a book on groundhogs? with pictures?
[2013/11/02 13:55]  Serra Anansi: we are a very private estate, I think this will be a nice warm way to welcome people of winterfell and the grid to visit and meet eachother
[2013/11/02 13:55]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): /me chuckles
[2013/11/02 13:55]  Cassie Eldemar (cashew.writer): giggles
[2013/11/02 13:55]  Litta Nightfire: /me wrinkles her nose at Danko
[2013/11/02 13:56]  Danko Whitfield: good for people who have heard of us but haven't visited yet
[2013/11/02 13:56]  Serra Anansi: Welcome, Duke Wolfsbane
[2013/11/02 13:56]  Litta Nightfire: So we are expecting winter decor, not necessarily Christmas, true?
[2013/11/02 13:56]  Serra Anansi: correct
[2013/11/02 13:56]  Addison Greymyst: (bows)
[2013/11/02 13:57]  Serra Anansi: if you want to do christmas, you may
[2013/11/02 13:57]  Serra Anansi: but I have never and will never dictate that sort of thing
[2013/11/02 13:58]  Serra Anansi: any thoughts on the tour?
[2013/11/02 13:58]  Serra Anansi: Selena will have more details by mid month
[2013/11/02 13:58]  Podruly Peccable: Well, I won't be able to very involved, unfortunately... I will be away for two weeks over Christmas... with no access to the aetherical realms
[2013/11/02 13:58]  Serra Anansi: Understandable
[2013/11/02 13:58]  Cee Edman: Horrors, Internet deprivation!
[2013/11/02 13:59]  Serra Anansi: if you want to, you can prepare before you leave
[2013/11/02 13:59]  Litta Nightfire: We chatted about a scripted tour, Serra, and if you'd like that, let me know. But if you wish to go simple, that might be easier for newer residents to cope with.
[2013/11/02 13:59]  Serra Anansi: you can still be on the list of homes open for tours
[2013/11/02 13:59]  Podruly Peccable: /me nods, with wide eyed horror
[2013/11/02 13:59]  Serra Anansi: /me smiles at Litta
[2013/11/02 13:59]  Neill McCullough: For those unfamiliar with the realm, some convenient means of crossing between the major island masses would be a boon.
[2013/11/02 13:59]  Serra Anansi: lets have a talk later this week about something along those lines?
[2013/11/02 13:59]  Serra Anansi: i am thinking simple
[2013/11/02 14:00]  Cee Edman: /me perks up
[2013/11/02 14:00]  Litta Nightfire: Sure!
[2013/11/02 14:00]  Serra Anansi: but I am open to your brilliance
[2013/11/02 14:00]  Litta Nightfire: /me looks around for some brilliance ... er....
[2013/11/02 14:00]  Serra Anansi: Selena will have a map and we will work with the ferry if possible
[2013/11/02 14:00]  Cee Edman: /me smiles a wicked smile at Litta
[2013/11/02 14:00]  Serra Anansi: Id like to make this a well rounded event
[2013/11/02 14:02]  Serra Anansi: Selena has started her preliminary plans for converting the communal land to the infrastructure group
[2013/11/02 14:02]  Serra Anansi: we will work hard to give anyone a heads up about stray prims before they are returned to the owners
[2013/11/02 14:03]  Oriella Charik: ah, those lost and strayed prims...
[2013/11/02 14:03]  Serra Anansi: problem with one of the Firestorm settings that allows any prim you create or place down auto setting to the group the land is set to
[2013/11/02 14:03]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): The occasional crayon, perhaps?
[2013/11/02 14:03]  Podruly Peccable: Ho about catapults to travel from one isle to another?
[2013/11/02 14:03]  Serra Anansi: so all residents are in the winterfell gruoop
[2013/11/02 14:03]  Wildstar Beaumont: oh ... catapults are fun !
[2013/11/02 14:03]  Podruly Peccable: Hehe
[2013/11/02 14:04]  Serra Anansi: it is easy for them to rez prims on the communal land and not know
[2013/11/02 14:04]  Wildstar Beaumont: I have a cataporter somewhere in the inventory
[2013/11/02 14:04]  Cee Edman: You port cats?
[2013/11/02 14:04]  OldeSoul Eldemar (oldesoul): *lobs some watermelons to Ebonshire
[2013/11/02 14:04]  Serra Anansi: so we are converting all communal land to a closed group saved for official business - upside of this it will help cut back on griefers
[2013/11/02 14:05]  Serra Anansi: /me checks to see if the catapult chatter is over... and if anyone has questions about the land change
[2013/11/02 14:06]  Serra Anansi: /me smiles
[2013/11/02 14:06]  Cee Edman: (all silent on the Western front)
[2013/11/02 14:06]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): /me chuckles quietly
[2013/11/02 14:06]  Serra Anansi: Cee and Litta, how goes the Ferry install?
[2013/11/02 14:06]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): Which group shall it be, Lady Twilight?
[2013/11/02 14:06]  Podruly Peccable: It seems very sensible, Lady Twilight

[2013/11/02 14:07]  Serra Anansi: /me is sorry for back tracking...
[2013/11/02 14:07]  Serra Anansi: the group is Order of the Twilight Rose
[2013/11/02 14:07]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): /me bows from his seat
[2013/11/02 14:07]  Cee Edman: I have a rather long report today, and I typoe very badly -- please forgive my typonese, for I want to type quickly.
[2013/11/02 14:08]  Cee Edman: The ferry is running.
[2013/11/02 14:08]  Cee Edman: (Not the end of the report)
[2013/11/02 14:08]  Serra Anansi: /me nods her apology to Cee

[2013/11/02 14:09]  OldeSoul Eldemar (oldesoul): Congrats Ms. Litta
[2013/11/02 14:09]  Cee Edman: The ferry now is using a completely new system, devised by Litta, based on the procedutre known as
[2013/11/02 14:10]  Cee Edman: feyframemotion.
[2013/11/02 14:10]  Podruly Peccable: Wonderful news
[2013/11/02 14:10]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): /me raises an intrigued eyebrow
[2013/11/02 14:10]  Litta Nightfire: *KeyFramedMotion
[2013/11/02 14:10]  Cee Edman: This is a woefully underdeveloped but very promising procedure from LL.
[2013/11/02 14:10]  Danko Whitfield: /me scratches his head
[2013/11/02 14:10]  OldeSoul Eldemar (oldesoul): *looks up in urban dictionary
[2013/11/02 14:10]  Podruly Peccable: Feyframemotion makes more sense in Winterfell ;)
[2013/11/02 14:10]  Cee Edman: It's damnably difficult to work with, and has some unforytunate side-effects.
[2013/11/02 14:10]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): Heh, you stole my words, Sir Podruly.
[2013/11/02 14:11]  Podruly Peccable: Hehe
[2013/11/02 14:11]  Serra Anansi: :D
[2013/11/02 14:11]  Cee Edman: The ferry can go off its course for a variety ofn reasons, none of which are controllable.
[2013/11/02 14:11]  Danko Whitfield: great minds
[2013/11/02 14:11]  Cee Edman: So if that happens and you are riding, bear with it.
[2013/11/02 14:11]  OldeSoul Eldemar (oldesoul): Takes a fae with me
[2013/11/02 14:11]  Danko Whitfield: could be interesting
[2013/11/02 14:12]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): So what is the benefit?
[2013/11/02 14:12]  Cee Edman: The Ferry rruns on a route made up of twenty segmnenbts, and if the farry goes off-track, it will jump to the beginning of its next segment. Bear with it -- you didn't do anything it just happens.
[2013/11/02 14:12]  Cee Edman: Litta -- the benefit?
[2013/11/02 14:12]  Serra Anansi: if you end up temporarily off course, blame the mysts
[2013/11/02 14:12]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): /me grins
[2013/11/02 14:12]  Litta Nightfire: Ah! There are a few
[2013/11/02 14:12]  Podruly Peccable: /me grins
[2013/11/02 14:12]  Litta Nightfire: kIt is much lower load on the sims
[2013/11/02 14:13]  Neill McCullough: Non physical?
[2013/11/02 14:13]  Litta Nightfire: And sim crossing are much smoother than with the previous system
[2013/11/02 14:13]  Serra Anansi: from my trial run, it was seamless at the sim crossings
[2013/11/02 14:13]  Litta Nightfire: Avatars are much more likely to make it across the crossing WITH the ferry, instead of ending up at the bottom of the water
[2013/11/02 14:13]  Cee Edman: /me smiles
[2013/11/02 14:13]  Litta Nightfire: Yes, it is non-physical
[2013/11/02 14:13]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): Excellent.
[2013/11/02 14:13]  Litta Nightfire: Altho a Havok feature
[2013/11/02 14:14]  Litta Nightfire: Also, it is more tolerant of small no-script areas
[2013/11/02 14:14]  Litta Nightfire: And eventually we will make available a nice "pause" feature, so one can look around at leisure
[2013/11/02 14:14]  Serra Anansi: oh nice!!
[2013/11/02 14:15]  Cee Edman: nods - exactly!
[2013/11/02 14:15]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): /me nods
[2013/11/02 14:15]  Litta Nightfire: But, what Cee was referring to, is particularly an issue in two situations
[2013/11/02 14:15]  Litta Nightfire: It no likee people to jump into the boat while it is in motion
[2013/11/02 14:15]  Litta Nightfire: Or indeed, to depart
[2013/11/02 14:16]  Serra Anansi: /me learned that the hard way
[2013/11/02 14:16]  OldeSoul Eldemar (oldesoul): whispers to Cassie - you must get in first darling
[2013/11/02 14:16]  Oriella Charik: /me will put Duchess Liz on a ferry, push off and See What Happens.
[2013/11/02 14:16]  Litta Nightfire: And, if you have estate management privileges, try not to right-click it while it is in motion ... an odd bug on LL's part
[2013/11/02 14:16]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): /me raises an eyebrow at the Wizardess
[2013/11/02 14:16]  Litta Nightfire: Cee, did I forget anything?
[2013/11/02 14:17]  Cee Edman: You will have 15 seconds to board when you rez the boat.
[2013/11/02 14:17]  Wildstar Beaumont: that did not sound too reassuring, Ori :)
[2013/11/02 14:17]  Podruly Peccable: DOes it go boom if you are an estate manager? *looks intrigued*
[2013/11/02 14:17]  Cee Edman: There are touch-on-rez boards (The nearest is just outside the back door here).
[2013/11/02 14:17]  Cee Edman: You will be required to wat 45 seconds after a boat has been rezzed to rez another one. This
[2013/11/02 14:18]  Litta Nightfire: (it goes zoom, Mr. Peccable!)
[2013/11/02 14:18]  Cee Edman: helps elimibate pile-ups down the line.
[2013/11/02 14:18]  OldeSoul Eldemar (oldesoul): Will ride with Sir Pod
[2013/11/02 14:19]  Cee Edman: There are several fine-tuning things yet tom be done -- like boats docking with too much space to step off -- wwe may not chasnge thsat --0 it is the only place we can guyarantee to dump you in the water!
[2013/11/02 14:19]  Cee Edman: We have tested asnd tested, but have mostly done it with only one or two passengers.
[2013/11/02 14:19]  Serra Anansi: lol!
[2013/11/02 14:19]  Cee Edman: Try it with its max of 4 -- and tell us if there are peoblems.
[2013/11/02 14:20]  Serra Anansi: we can do that for sure
[2013/11/02 14:20]  Danko Whitfield: alts deserve a nice afternoon cruise
[2013/11/02 14:20]  Cee Edman: That's about all I can think of -- there are rezzers at Absinthe, Laudanum, Forest Floor, Aislinn and Rustica as well as the one here at ROsehaven
[2013/11/02 14:20]  Danko Whitfield: of course, for my alts...i would need 16 ferries
[2013/11/02 14:20]  Podruly Peccable: It sounds as if it has "character", so will fit i well :)
[2013/11/02 14:20]  Serra Anansi: /me smiles
[2013/11/02 14:21]  Podruly Peccable: *in
[2013/11/02 14:21]  Cee Edman: Each location has a boat named for the location (so when one hets returned to me after a didaster,I'll know ehere it started!
[2013/11/02 14:21]  Litta Nightfire: /me nods. We have a lot of discretion as to how the script behaves, so do let us know if something seems odd to you.
[2013/11/02 14:21]  Cee Edman: Litta, anything else?
[2013/11/02 14:21]  Litta Nightfire: I'm done!
[2013/11/02 14:22]  Night Crow (wolf.earthboy): I have to go, rl calls. Goodnight Lady Twilight and everyone, I will speak the next days with Selena about the winter hunt, wich interest very much. Have a pleasant evening everyone !

Aw, I really want to see it. I've been without decent SL access for a fortnight (I'm Toubanua).

Moot Addendum from Litta -

Hello! Just a few words to correct something I said at the moot about how the ferry behaves when folks get in and out of it. To be clear: for nearly everyone, it is just fine to get in or out of the ferry while it is in motion. If your friend starts the ferry and you're late getting into it, no problem, just hop in while it's moving. In fact, the new ferry is extremely robust regarding passenger behavior - you can put it in edit, hop in and out at will, stand up and dance until it turns and you fall off - it will continue cruising on course.

The only individuals for whom this is not true are, basically, estate managers. More detail below* for any fellow nerds who may be interested.

Also, I can't believe that I neglected to mention a major benefit of this ferry technology - it ignores obstacles! If someone has placed a nonphantom boat or bridge or even some land in its path, it will carry its passengers through (or, in the case of land, over) the obstacle.

So please, ride the ferry and let Cee Edman know how it goes!

Many thanks!



* Techie details: Objects using llSetKeyframedMotion are not exactly physical, but they respond like a physical object when someone with the ability to return objects on a parcel 'right clicks' them. That is, they freeze. This is so that estate managers can clean up griefer objects. However, because of how Keyframed Motion works, when unfrozen the ferry will be off course. Unfortunately, right clicking is also how people sit down! So, IF the boat is moving AND an estate manager (or indeed, the parcel owner wherever the ferry happens to be) sits on it or tries to put it in edit, it will go off course. I had a choice as to what to do in that case - if I ignore it going off course, it often begins to cruise through land and builds rather disturbingly, particularly for folks who are at home when the boat (with passengers!) drifts through their fireplace. So right now, it'll do the same thing it does whenever it notices that it's off course, it jumps to the next "marker" in the ferry route. This can be a little disconcerting but at least prevents the boat from barging in on people's privacy, so to speak.

I may try to make the boat smarter about what it does to handle this, but since there aren't all THAT many folks who can return objects throughout Winterfell, we decided to go with it.
