Linden Department of Public Works: Construction Update

Work proceeds apace on the Bay City regions as LDPW Moles build their little hearts out and we expect to be nearing completion by month’s end. So far they’ve show themselves to be as industrious, professional and fun loving as any insectivore you’re likely to meet and the content being created is certainly on pace to set the standard in these new urban spaces.

Thoughts on scripting:

— Bay City has a couple of major scripting requirements, drawbridges and the trolleys. The physical trolleys will run at a fixed height, and at a fixed north-south distance in each Region they’re in — thus they should move pretty smoothly over Region boundaries. Scripting will deal with starting and stopping at drawbridges, stops, and the ends of the line. Drawbridges are pretty much “door” scripts, but we want some “coordinated” activity of various objects when bridges go up or down, and some limits or pauses to prevent malicious “flapping” of the city’s bridges. Some of the bridges will be “paired” (two-leaf) bascule bridges; and we may try to have coordinated light signals or such … maybe.


Suggested organizations in Bay City (not to be taken too seriously):

  • The Hippos Clubs International: meeting at the diner and attempting to emulate the hippopotamus
  • The Sim Scouts: earning badges in texturing, scripting, building, searching and Region navigation
  • Prim Rotation International: members, known as “primates”, seek goodwill and peace on the Grid
  • “Fighting Moles” primball team: undefeated in Second Life! The annual calendar depicting the “Bay City Sows” cheerleaders is found in infohubs all about Bay City.

Other stuff:

  • We’ve posted a few pictures of progress on the “Bay City” regions at https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Department_of_Public_Works_scrapbook
  • The “big chunk of voids” for the southern continent is pretty much ready. Once it’s slotted in, our staff will fly around and adjust the edges a bit (trying to avoid any hideously out-of-level Region borders). For the moment, a nominal volcano is sitting on the Island, percolating away … expect something more curious to appear there at some point.

Please remember to visit the wiki page (https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Department_of_Public_Works) for more info on Bay City, to learn how to apply for LDPW (go moles!) and to find out how you can contribute your thoughts and ideas!

    Ah. Nice to know it’s going along well. Just saw parts of the scrapbook, and it looks great! I’m anxious to see it when it’s opened up to the public. πŸ˜€ Great work, lindens!

    ok stop trying to hide the RC update. its broken. i cant get past initializing world without crashing. forcing the update has to be one of your most stupid mistakes.
    WL runs 15-20FPS on my machine. standard viewer runs 1.1FPS! i cant do shit! forcing your customers to use a broken update is NOT my idea of good business.
    and it isnt my computer either!

    Hi!

    Glad to hear that y’all are making progress…kudos! One question though: I still have not been able to find a link by which to submit ideas. I’ve seen a few comments pointing to a supposed link but nowhere where I can actually click on anything & add my own input. Could someone please cover exactly where this link might be?

    Much appreciated, thanks!

  7. Chakku451 Rieko says:

    It all looks wonderful! Go Moles!

    I’d like to make a request. Can there be a 7-15 day suspension on land sales in the area, please. I think folks would like to have a chance to see Bay City BEFORE the ad farms start popping up.

  8. Masuyo Aabye says:

    reply6: it’s Linden land, no parts are being sold. so no adfarms.

  9. Mitzy Shino says:

    It’s great to see this happening, but before investing in fancy show off builds how about doing what every government in the world does first, invest in your infrastructure!!!!

    No I’m not complaining about crashes, lag or anything like that.

    What I’d like to see is ROADS, I have a “track” running right past my place, it’s been there forever, I’d really like to be able to use it, but I can’t because it hasnt been developed.

    I’m currently at $195 tier, and some of that is going to keep these show off regions running, please please please spend sometime and add roads! (begs you to start in Ezquerra and spread out)

    If your not going to build a road there, then sell me the land and I’ll build a road!

  10. Kram Sadofsky says:

    Trolly? Uh-Oh – and here I’ve been buying land and forming a group to develop SL working trains – the “Trains” group. Perhaps the Lindens should have developed “ad farms” before anyone else could – and for the same reason – consistancy and interoperability… Please focus on building roads (that even trains could operate on) and fixing the absolute mess from allowing people to buy 16 sq.m. lots. Minimum lot size should be 512. Residents (ad farmers) should have 60 days to consolidate or sell any lots of smaller size. Residents should NOT be allowed to cut off and abandon land in order to drop their tier…keep it or sell it to a neighbor (helps keep lot prices in check too).

  11. Hewitt Huet says:

    @Mitzy – you might as well ‘appeal against the thunder-storm’ than ask LL to build anything on those roads. They’ve been blank on my continent forever. Don’t build one yourself (it’s possible; just hav the parent prim of the linkset on your land) because LL will *delete* it. I saw it happen once already and there have been several anecdotal reports here on the blog of same. Me? I just stand in the roadway in front of ALL THREE of my properties and hope against hope….well see below:

    @Michael Linden:
    I IM’d you one day to ask about the roadway in Cipactli. I’d seen that you’d built into the sim I own land in. I asked you what the future plans were – your reply? “Build more roads!!!”. Once I recovered from having fainted at the idea of a Linden returning my IM, I asked if that meant that you were going to complete the raods in this sim. as there is a connector road between two croassraods that runs strainght through it. Your answer was, IIRC, something to the effect that there were no concrete plans to build in any specific place that you were aware of. Just, “build more roads!” This is shameful.

    Now? More cutsey stuff I see. WHAT is GOING on over there?! What is LL turning SL into? I dont know anymore. I trtied the RC viewer, wont work properly with my vid card. So much for windlight. I’m not buying a new video card.

    Now, we can earn merit badges amd emulate water-dwelling mammals, or seek primball or grid-wide peace – that last one almost made me wet myself btw. Roads? Nah. We’ll get to that um……sometime, maybe. OOOO Look at the pretty prim hippo!!!

  12. Rinaldo Debevec says:

    Road-building seems easy and simple … until you try to do it on curved and sloping land. I noticed that road was build on St Lion that ends abruptly. Wondered why the road builders stopped? Then last week I started attempting to build countoured road on my own private sim, and discovered that it is NOT EASY to build smooth road that follows a curve and slope. Now I see why the St Lion road ends where it does … the flat straight portion was built, and it stops right where the road would need to drop down and curve beautifully around the front of my property.

    I much prefer curved contoured roads over flat straight roads. But they require more skill and time to build. Anyway, I don’t mind having green protected land in front of my St Lion property …. it’s like having a front yard and not having to pay tier for it πŸ™‚

    Once I’ve learned how to build a good-looking road, I’ll volunteer to build the section on St Lion.

  13. Sammy Ormsby says:

    Good to see the Lindens ‘Building’ something again… Like the Hundreds of Meters of “Protected” roadways never built

  15. Nadir Koba says:

    It’s great that you’re all so enthusiastic about this project but the concerns of myself and my friends are not that there is nowhere fun to go on the mainland – it’s that a lot of the mainland is so neglected that it *stops* being fun, and people move away, leaving it even more derelict, which is both a shame for those who remain, and a waste of land resources.

    My partner’s home sim is a case in point. She has made a lovely garden and little vendor for her builds, but most of the surrounding parcels are abandoned (though apparently not unpaid for, since LL hasn’t taken them over and they’ve been empty over a year…) with all the concommitant problems of plywood litter and crashed vehicles from fly-by opportunists, no entry fences which are unsightly and impede travel, and even griefer objects which have been abuse reported but which LL fails to do anything about. None of these things can be remedied when the owners of the parcels have left SL and cannot be contacted, which just leaves the whole area in a sorry mess 😦

    I would like to propose that the LDPW address these issues by setting up a subdivision for mainland monitoring and tidying. They could help to field abuse reports involving litter, keep a check on long abandoned parcels, tidy up obvious rubbish (one neighbour’s castle may be another neighbour’s eyesore, but there is no mistaking a plywood cube marked ‘object’ or a car floating at an angle in midair, especially when the owners don’t match the owner of the parcel) and all sorts of other issues which are obviously beyond LL’s support capabilities at the present time.

    My partner, Fledhyris Proudhon, would be more than happy to volunteer for this service. She lives at Songnisan. She will be thrilled to be contacted by interested Lindens!

    Thank you for listening.

  16. Razrcut Brooks says:

    @ 14 .Excellent idea. I did not agree at first as my initial reaction was that it is these ignorant land owners’ fault for not knowing how to use the About Land feature to change their land settings. Too many seem to not get it and do not care if their land becomes sandboxes. A team of volunteers to roam mainland and return the garbage sounds good. However, how would LL pick trustworthy people to do this? The power to return every prim to its owner on mainland is a power they could not grant lightly.

  17. Thank You Linden Lab for being so consistent.

    When this project was first announced the majority of those commenting ask for mainland improvements. Yet, as usual, you have chosen to do something completely adrift from what WE, your so-called VALUED CUSTOMERS wanted.

    Thanks again Linden Lab, nice to know you haven’t changed one bit!

  18. chosen01uk Carver says:

    Well i must agree , though it is frowned apon by some.

    Where are the roads ????
    If you cant do it or attempt it, let land owners roadside build the roads.
    Listen to the members paying the money to keep SL running .
    Oh and pay the wages of staff.

  19. Mitzy Shino says:

    Another thought, if you don’t have time to build them, at least swoop in and flatten/smooth them, We’d be able to walk/ride on the ground then at least.

  20. Nadir Koba says:

    @15 “However, how would LL pick trustworthy people to do this? The power to return every prim to its owner on mainland is a power they could not grant lightly.”

    You make an excellent point there. However, providing a Linden was in charge of the team to monitor volunteer behaviour, any complaints should swiftly result in discipline of such an offender. They would not, after all, have the power to *delete* only to return objects – and anyone doing something as heinous as returning large unlinked builds without checking with the owner first would be tantamount to a griefer in my book, and deserve banning!

    I think the focus of such a clearance crew should be to act on reports and contact both the landowner and the supposed litterlout in the first instance, only taking action if a reply is not forthcoming within a week. They should also only remove objects which do not belong to the landowner. The neighbours may not like it, but it IS a person’s inalienable right to fill their own parcel with plywood blocks, should they so choose *g*

    I get a distinct feeling that the “big chunk of voids” is getting very few votes in the ‘sexy/shiny’ stakes within the workload. It’s maybe the poor relation in an impoverished family?
    Could you at least endure that the initial setup of the sims allows for +/- 100m terraforming as per private islands? It’s always harder to go back to a job!
    Yup! Me again, banging on about great underwater chasms!!

  23. Zen Zeddmore says:

    oh? the moles are running and I never heard a word. no responce on my support ticket to participate. no word on the wiki. zero communication to the unselected WOW maks me feel so appreciated. Thanks for asking me to help. Where’s the courtesy of a “sorry we can’t use you at this time” e-mail?

  24. Broccoli Curry says:

    Same here Zen. It may be ‘assume you were unsuccessful if you hear nothing” in the real world nowadays but I hoped Linden Lab would rise above that ignorant attitude so many corporations have.

    When you have volunteers, find a way to use them. It doesn’t matter who it is, and in what way they volunteer, just accept them if they meet the requirements you have laid out.

    Maybe if you’d have not mentioned that the builders would get paid, you would have had skilled people who were genuinely wanting to help, rather than an influx of semi-skilled (and unsuitable) people who were after a quick buck to wade through.

  25. Hewitt Huet says:

    Update:

    Michael has contacted me in reply to my enquiry about roads. I would hope he’d respond here as well, but if he doesnt the gist of the matter is that *residents have actaully COMPLAINED when LL started to inprove and pave the roads*.

    That’s right. Your (and MY) fellow sim residents actually bitched at Michael for building roads. Since they can’t make everyine happy *chuckle* they just thought it’d be better to hold off until more feedback can be gathered and logistsics of resident-built content are figured out more sufficiently.

    Micheal?……..

  26. It was a small but vocal minority; but yes, we are pondering how to build consensus without changing road style every 200 meters or so.

    Many Residents ask for road, but when we build, there’s always one who contacts us and says “I liked it without a road” or “Can we have a horsepath instead of pavement” or “can we have fairy sprinkles instead of a horse path”; or sometimes “I thought Protected Land would never, ever be built on.”

    We need to “manage expectations.” Perhaps the default name “protected land” isn’t perfect …

    (6/12/2007 1:26 PM PDT) Hello Space,

    Your Second Life account was suspended due to violations of our Terms of Service (ToS). We took this action upon being informed that you purchased Linden dollars that were fraudulently acquired by the seller. This information came in the form of a fraud dispute initiated by a credit card holder through their issuing bank. Upon conclusion of our investigation we have reason to believe you were not aware you were purchasing fraudulently obtained goods. We have therefore restored your account and noted it accordingly. As the goods you received were fraudulently obtained, we are unable to allow them to remain in your account. You are encouraged to engage the fraud recovery channels available to you that are provided by the site where you purchased these goods, and/or your payment service provider.

    Regards,

    I apologize for the delay. It has been busy around here lately. :). Because of the status of your account (being in a negative Linden balance/not in good standing) we are unable to process credits for you. However, if you do have funds in your account balance, that will certainly cover your monthly fees etc. Unfortunately there’s nothing that we are able to do to help restore the Linden dollars that were removed from your account as we are legally obligated to remove what is essentially stolen property. The best thing you can do in this situation is contact the company or source of the Linden dollars and ask for a refund.

    Details: hello aki, its been a week since i last wrote to you, i have asked for a copy of my transaction history if possible, i understand your busy but this has been going on since april its now almost the end of july, i was hoping you would resolve this in a democratic manner that suits all concerned, and not just Linden Lab.I am paying for someone else’s illegal activity, how is that fair ? i have been kept out of the info loop, so i am the last to know whats going on even though its my account, like i mentioned before i sold land while my account was active, also when it was disabled, but so far you have’nt answered my concerns regarding this , for some reason have decided to take all my money regardless, how is that fair ? I also requested a telephone call, in game IM , live chat etc. but so far no response, i think it would be easier and quicker using one of the above methods. All i want is for you Linden Lab to be fair , you suggest i ask the seller for a refund, but i need to have a reason for this. I havent got any evidence to back up any claim for refund, you say you have evidence, so could you provide me with it. I only want whats fair,so far i dont seem to be getting anything like that.

    Dear Space Rockett,

    I have reviewed your account and there are two issues here; one is the unclaimed auction 26203869 in Sababurg, and the other is the you received 397000$ Lindens from a fraudulent source.

    In both cases you were notified and action was taken.

    The unclaimed auction in November 2007 was reclaimed and you were credited with 80% of the winning amount as per policy at that time. When auctioned land is unclaimed it can be put back up for auction as was done in this case.

    The 397000$ Lindens acquired by you from a fraudulent source were assessed and removed from your account June 18, 2007.

    I apologize for any confusion, though there is no other action that can be taken at this point with either one of these issues.

    Sincerely,

    Linden Lab

    once again your so called “solution” does not solve anything from my point of view, not only is the statement “In both cases you were notified and action was taken” is incorrect you completly failed to be able to view this whole episode fairly.I have on several occassion made it clear that i did not acquire lindens from a fruadulent source, if you accuse me of obtaining lindens in that way I would be interested in knowing who or what is that source,as far as being notified that my land was to be reclaimed, please provide me with the notification as I have not received any such notification to date.Also you have denied me access to my transaction history, you again make the statement “When auctioned land is unclaimed it can be put back up for auction as was done in this case” how much did the land bring at auction ? what is 80% of that amount ? where is the transaction information regarding the sale etc ?
    Your apology is meaningless as you have taken my money illegally and you have failed again to put the rights of your customers first.
    I will pursue this outside your corrupt and dishonest system.

    space.

    wasn’t sure where to turn to thats under 50 comments so here goes, lot of people have earned thousands of linden so why do they still keep it around 2L per 15 or 20 minutes, its time consuming, i have a feeling some millionaire in the sim will create a 1L per minute camp site. many will go there if we don’t get logged off after 30 minutes which if we wanted to make money it should be ~ hours with land being from 200 to over 1000 per month
