The Havok4-based Second Life simulator v18.104.22.168411 has been deployed 559 Early Adopter regions. This version resolves a set of 11 issues listed in the March 14th post describing the recent Havok4 Beta Preview Update. Due to the nature of these fixes, we wanted to allow for some extra test time on the Beta Preview.
Sneak Peek: Upcoming Issue Resolutions that are completed in the next release (…so that you know which items have already been fixed internally, and in the pipeline for our next deploy – but remember the following items are not included in the this update!)
We have another build that is in testing that is not deployed yet, containing fixes for the following issues. Please note – I’m providing this as advance information so that you know which open issues we have already fixed. They are not, however fixed in the version that we are deploying tonight.
DEV-12031: llSetForce energy refill bug reintroduced (“held our noses” and reintroduced a bug that we had fixed in the Havok4-based simulator, in order to avoid breaking some earlier products that we could not fix by alternate scripting methods)
SVC-1281: Swimmer 1.1 by Siggy Romulu now works
SVC-1701 (Won’t Finish): Diving board still launches too high (This is a non-fix… one example of a product that was highly tuned for a behavior in Havok1 that has changed a bit… that we have no reasonable way to fully emulate. The diving board works, but the lift height is significantly higher than in Havok1-based simulators. Although we have worked hard to maintain compatibility where we can, it is not always possible. I am including this bug as an example of the few compatibility issues that might be found as we convert to the Havok4-based simulator for the rest of Second Life. There have been very few of these raised so far, but I expect that there are some more out there lurking..)
SVC-1721: Avatar now correctly enters falling mode when walking off the edge of a platform
DEV-11984: Large spheres no longer get stuck to other objects after being dragged across them
DEV-12137: Terrasport parachute ground collision detection now working
SVC-1261: Avatar no longer slides slowly down sloped terrain
