Things to do in 2014


Events :
Pretty much every friday there's a nice party on Close encounters, every wednesday a party at the blue pyramid club, and on sundays the Maritime club often has live performances. Special events held on Event plaza are announced at LBSA plaza on OSgrid.

Tools:
There is a nice set of GUI (Graphical User Interface) tools developed by Dene Sparta, which can help you perform various tasks on your Opensim console at a click of your mouse. Find the installer(s) and instructions on http://admin-sim.net/ . Looks handy, so I need to play with it sometime soon.

Reminders:
For windows users returning to the OSgrid after being away, current OSG versions need .NET framework 4
(Typically you can see what is installed under C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework).
Also if you come from a pre 0.76 release, you will need to rewrite / adjust to the new opensim.ini files.
Voice for your region can be still be requested by form at http://support.vivox.com/opensim/

Plans: 

  • Tutorials & howto's on: Installing opensim,  Troubleshooting & maintaining your installation, Configuring & testing your network etc. in 1 page. Not the normal "quick start forum post" but an elaborate guide, including a FAQ, error messages, and their solutions. 
  • Event listings & region showcases
  • Updates, news and links to fresh goodies
  • hitting 45000 prims on the main club build and try to host an event 
  • Getting mesh related info in the links section
  • clean & organise the downloads
Some of that plans will take a while, but all of the above is on the agenda for 2014, we will see next year where the plans brought us.
