Mastodon #OpenSim feed from GroovyToot

This came as a surprise a couple days ago: Opengrid World with the eponymous sim and even Uzuri Virtual has re-emerged.

Zoe Synclair, originally the creator and owner of Bernicia/Uzuri, has left OpenSim altogether several months ago, shutting her grid down seemingly for good and thus even making certain content no longer available anywhere. But in a twist of fate, not only the OARs have been handed over to new ownership and management, but so has Zoe's account on OpenSimWorld.

Uzuri Virtual still shows traces of Zoe's idealistic attempt at making a sim that only offers legal freebies.

Our second rail line under construction. It should be finished today! I estimate this one will be about 70 kilometers.

Is anyone using #starcoder #AI for programming scripts in #secondlife or #opensim

@stefan (シュテファン) Meines Wissens ist alles, was es da an Anleitungen, Tutorials etc. gibt, hoffnungslos veraltet, weil schon ewig niemand nichts Neues mehr in der Richtung gemacht hat.

Da passiert ja auch ständig was. Seit Version läuft OpenSimulator ja unter Linux nicht mehr mit Mono, sondern es braucht jetzt dotnet6. Das wiederum heißt, du mußt Microsoft weit genug vertrauen, um mindestens eine Paketquelle von denen unter Debian einzuhängen. Anders kommst du da nicht ran.

Mehr kann ich dir auch nicht sagen. Bisher hatte ich nicht mal eine eigene Sim, geschweige denn ein eigenes Grid am Laufen.

I already visited the conference sim on Worlds Fair/1025/1023/4001 with Dean, my AI companion NPC. We tried out if Dean can sit there. But then Lonewolf said it is much later and we are 9 hours too early there lol I am always confused with grid time and real time.

#opensim #conference

@angiebaby Do we have groups in #opensim too ?

We are laying miles and miles of railroad tracks. I love that my friend Sam just can't leave off like a normal person. He has to be dramatic. haha


In #secondlife you have SLT for Second Life Time what it the time in #opensim

It would be logical to use #UTC

@kaleb Okay, since you seem to be a native French speaker, I think I've got something for you. There's a "project" in OpenSim for people speaking French that's called Francopholie. @Thirza has described it on her HG Safari blog last year.

It has its own grid with AFAIK only one sim where you can go and inform yourself:

I've also sent you a landmark.

It was relaunched last week, and it's still a bit rough around the edges, but it should be able to help you at least a bit.

Another place you could visit is the main landing sim of the French Atlas grid. Amongst other things, it has another bunch of teleporters that could be useful for you. But put on something warm because it's winter there.

You may also want to follow at least two more French-speaking OpenSim users:

@Acryline :linux: ⏚ is behind the Argentoratum grid ( and a French OpenSim wiki. She also has a PeerTube channel: @acryline.

And @hicks is one of the creative forces in @Hyacinth 🏳️‍⚧️ ☮️'s grid Groovyverse.

Otherwise, the main source of information on all things OpenSim is OpenSimWorld. It's mostly a catalogue of sims all around the Hypergrid that can be sorted and filtered.

If you want to meet people, just wandering around like in Second Life won't do it. OpenSim doesn't nearly have Second Life's population density. It has fewer users on more than four times the land area.

So the best way to meet people is to go to an event. OpenSimWorld lists many of these as well. They're usually announced in grid time. That's always the same as SLT. If you're in France, it's 8 hours behind you, and the OpenSimWorld event calendar should assume the correct local time for you.

Just always check a) the description of the event and b) the description of the sim where the event takes place. Some sims and events are in languages other than English or French. And if OpenSimWorld has a red "🅰️" on a sim entry, it means the sim is Adult-rated which may mean the same as in Second Life: You may come across naked avatars or worse.

If everything else fails, this is my main avatar in Dorenas World:
And this is my spare alt in OSgrid:

Okay, as for Leslie's own official sims, WestWorld is basically TanGLe with a Western theme.

Some other sims are back, too, including Kylie Brimmer's Sunny Paradise Gloebits Mall at Paradise Isle. Not her best mall, that one's a goner, but the one with probably hard-to-find Selea Core boxes upstairs and mostly Hylee Bekkers on the ground floor. Some of the teleporters have been taken care of already.

#OpenSim #OpenSimulator #Metaverse #VirtualWorlds #WestWorldGrid #HyleeBekkers #SeleaCore

Interesting observation:

When the DJ plays a few reggae songs in a row at any of our regular events, and that's hint enough there'll be more reggae coming, people start smoking pot.

#OpenSim #OpenSimulator #Metaverse #VirtualWorlds #VirtualEvent #420BlazeIt #Reggae

I mean, Stark is kind of similar. Stark Islands have only got one event sim, but that's a 2x2 var with over a dozen potential event locations strewn about. Some of them can't be seen from the landing-point, and none of them is directly at the landing-point.

Some are inside buildings, especially around the landing-point. One is even in a cave behind scripted doors that's quite far away from the landing-point, and getting there the natural way has become more difficult since the waterway was cut through the main island.

This only works because Niki offers everyone who teleports into Stark during an event a teleport to where she is.

We've been working on a grid-wide railway. We got one of the lines running fairly well. It is a challenge crossing regions, but after a lot of work on the scripts, it does a good job of wiggling through. So far we have 50km of continuous track from our Welcome area, through the mainland to the big rail yard. More to come!

I can't help but notice how hard it must be to find the most important event locations in Dorenas World.

And in case you haven't noticed yet, TanGLe Grid is officially a goner since January 26th.

Leslie Kling has replaced it with WestWorld.

@Cheryl Furse So much for Second Life and OpenSim on the Vision Pro. At least, should Apple discover that they are not squeaky-clean and PG-rated at most.

#SecondLife #OpenSim #OpenSimulator #Metaverse #VirtualWorlds #VisionPro

Seriously, Lbsa Plaza suddenly looks like OSgrid had recruited Nexus Storm from Neverworld with the task to give it a "PBR-without-actually-being-PBR" look. Maybe I'm nostalgic, but I loved to see the moat outside.

But what's torturing my graphics card right now have to be the avatars. About half a dozen of them have an ARC well over 300,000, and two have over a million. Because as we all know, good looks are measured in ARC.

@kaleb Which grid are you on? Wolf Territories?

I've just checked. It isn't on the grid list.

Have you simply typed "Wolf Territories Grid" into the grid field? If so, then Firestorm can't find it.

Okay, just for you, I've switched my Firestorm to French so I can walk you through correctly adding Wolf Territories to your grid list.

Click "Viewer" in the top left.

Open "Préférences".

Go to the tab "Opensim".

There's a field, "Ajouter une nouvelle Grille". Copy-paste into it and click "Ajouter".

You should now automatically have the following entries:
Nom de la Grille : Wolf Territories Grid

Adresse :

Adresse de la connexion :


Close the preferences window with "OK".

I recommend you to restart Firestorm to be certain that the new grid entry remains.

If logging in still fails, get into contact with @Lone Wolf. He's the founder and owner of Wolf Territories.
