The Havok™4-based Second Life simulator v188.8.131.52583 has been deployed to the Early Adopter beta regions on Second Life. This is the same version that was deployed to the Beta Preview yesterday, with the addition of a fix to handle certain simulator startup cases that can keep a simulator from starting successfully.
What Has Changed In This Version?
Changes in this build include (SVC items were submitted on the public jira issue tracker / DEV items are internally discovered issues).
SVC-1923: Mass calculations on small path-cut, hollowed and dimpled prims adjusted to be much closer to the masses calculated on the current release simulator. Masses on these small complex objects may not be exactly the same, since we now account for scale when calculating minimum size prims, and a few other variables, but it will be much closer)
SVC-1856: Unassisted flight at high altitudes is now possible with reduced fall rates. The fall rate is not quite as low as the current release simulator, but is now much closer.
DEV-12601: Floating object no longer falls (this was a secondary effect of issues like
SVC-1923 – mass calcuations not correct for twisted shapes)
DEV-12637: Kart no longer sometimes spins on it’s top after crossing region boundary
SVC-1792: llSetBouyancy = 1.0 now handled correctly (another fix for avatars not holding altitude correctly with a HUD attachment)
SVC-1520: Reduced the amount of “float” between avatar feet and floor
DEV-12320: llGetBoundingBox now includes the object the avatar is sitting on
SVC-1473: Hollowed and path-cut prims now align better when using copy selected
DEV-12585: Relaxed 256m megaprim size limitation based on continuing discussions and analysis.
