Singularity Viewer with Bento



The wait is finally over for Singularity Viewer users who have been waiting for Bento to arrive on their preferred viewer.

If you are already using the alpha releases, create a restore point, uninstall the old version (your settings will be preserved) and head on over to the Singularity Alpha site and install Build 6905 to enjoy Bento in Singularity!

Singularity downloads: http://alpha.singularityviewer.org/alpha/


Bento head as seen on Singularity v6905


There is still a bug present which surfaced on builds beyond v6864 with objects using glow, where glow incorrectly shows unless Advanced Lighting Model is enabled.

However, you can enable ALM and then turn off Shadows if you have a slightly lower end graphics card without too much impact in frame rate.  (CTRL+P Graphics tab).
You can also vote and follow this bug on the jira: https://singularityviewer.atlassian.net/browse/SV-2143




A reminder of some useful settings in Singularity:

Not seeing things that you know are there?
CTRL+SHIFT+V will reset the vertex buffers and redraw the area.

CTL+SH+ALT+C for Avatar Cost.   Cost and Weight can be toggled via Debug, see below.

Some useful Debug settings:

CTL+P > System > Security  autoteleport when region is restarting (drop LM in here)

LiruShowTransactionThreshold = 2 Do not pop up a notification box for amounts less than this value.
UISndRestart = UUID of sound to play on restart (replaces Torley Linden)
AlchemyRegionRestartShake = true  Shake the screen when region restart is imminent

LiruLegacyLandmarks = true/false  Landmark saved with position e.g. (22, 258, 23)
LiruSensibleARC = False   Show new style render Weights not Costs
ShowSimChannel = True    Shows the Server name on About land top bar next to region name
LiruMapShowAvCount = True    Map shows amount of avatars on sim next to region name
AvatarNameColour = override the default name colours, you can still colour friends in vanity
LiruShowLastNameResident =  Turn on or off  last names ending in 'Resident' (on CTL+P too)
LiruNewARCLimit = Change threshold colour on Av Weight (suggest 120k value for >230kARC)

Roy Orbison in Concert on Saturday




Join us on Saturday in Regent's Park for Roy Orbison in London City.

Roy Orbison, The Big O, was an American singer/songwriter best known for his songs, Crying, Only The Lonely, Oh Pretty Woman, Running Scared, You Got It and many more hits.

Contrary to popular belief, the reclusive Orbison wore big black sunglasses not  because he was blind or cross eyed.  He adopted them because he suffered terrible stage fright (which prevented him touring) and found them to be a useful shield between himself and the world outside.

Roy died in 1988 aged just 52.  A year later, You Got It became the final song of Roy Orbison's to chart inside the top ten.

Party starts at 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the Concert and hour later at 1pm SL.

The Voice Lounge





The new voice lounge in London City has its own private voice and sound parcel, separate from the hub area.

This gives residents the chance to chat on voice, uninterrupted by sounds, music and gestures from outside of the lounge area.    The lounge is also voice enabled 24 hours, so during concerts and shows, residents can still use this area undisturbed by other events happening in London City.

Famed Soothsayer, Madame Bailey, visits the park





The New Year got off to a flying tart today thanks to Madame Bailey and her spirits.

Multi-talented Madame Bailey was perched on her crystal ball reading fortunes for over a quarter of an hour, with some alarmingly accurate predictions, largely due to insider knowledge of her victims.


Spectators were wowed by her rare gift of the ability to laugh at other people's misfortunes. Quite a queue of punters formed, as many people observed how spooky she was.

Bailey who has long meddled with the Yakult said that today's experience left her the most fulfilled in ages, and vowed to return to do everyone else who crosses her path.  If you see Madame Bailey out and about, be sure to cross her palm with silver or the old witch will cuss you in local.
