When we implemented the "keywords" feature the point was to make a
searchable index of all the worlds.

The way it was supposed to work was World Owners would put in keywords and
the world rating, then we would run a bot that could jump in, do a quick
scan - reading the keywords and the rating and then compile a list. We
thought it was a good idea... but then some world owners complained about
the violation of privacy (when the bot entered a closed world). So we
turned it off

We wrote ours in response to WO and citizens requesting a searchable DB. We
thought it was a good idea so we wrote our bot. Then some WO realized that
a bot would come into a "closed" world and decided they didn't like it. We
stopped. There is no legal issue involved and the use of the world server
software does come with a license.

IMO it was a loss, the searchtab would have been a much more usable feature.

What OTHER Universe owners or caretakers decide to do with THEIR Universe
caretaker rights is entirely up to them and the agreement you have with
them. If you do not like the way they operate there are a lot of other
Universes who would love to add your world.

Even if we did as you suggest there are STILL going to be WO's that don't
like a bot coming in and peeking at their world options.

At some point we learned to cut our losses.

3.4

(3.1) Move/Rotate Command enhancement (With examples)

Apr 3, 2003, 4:49pm
Wellllllll....

3.4 is obviously not released yet but we have already started considering
features for 3.5 or 4.0

One feature that is near the top of the list is "movers".

While "move" and "rotate" are great little commands there is a need for a
higher level of scripting to do the things you describe.
One existing problem is the shared state of the veiwer and the object is not
shared with others. Aside from the ability to "sync" an event with the
clock you really have no control as to what everyone else sees. A door
appears to open (bump rotate 0, 0, 1) for you, but everyone else sees you
walking through it. Currently only by using a bot can you fix this problem.

Another example, if I start a move on a train.rwx it will only go to my
visible range and then disappear, this distance is differnent for everyone -
and once the train.rwx disappears... so does the command. Your command
suggestion would work for you but anyone else who walked in after it had
started would not see it, or they would see it in a different position. And
if the numbers were larger than the visible distance the animation would
stop.

A solution for these problems is "movers". Movers would probably be a
seperate class of objects which the server could recognize as a shared event
object. This would allow the server to track events that started either by a
script or an action in world. If this is done train.rwx is seen by everyone
in the same place (no matter when the entered the world... or what there
visible range is) A mover should be able to follow waypoints you could set
from coords. A mover might also allow people to "ride" it (elevators-
buses-merrygorounds- rollercoasters)

Anyways... it is on the list but not simple

E





A "mover" could travel in a specified area and be a shared event throughout.

Hello Mod,

I am not sure why you think we didn't go after M A T T. Everything we said
was and is true. The fact that people can get away with online crimes is
only a reflection that they can get away with real-life crimes also. We are
still taking action against M A T T but it takes a lot of time and if
certain law enforcement agencies do not act on our complaints, how can we
change it? I will not apologize for the judicial system of the United
States as I have control over it.

I am not sure why you assume it failed miserably. We sold every copy! It
was just a lot of work and our focus is in other areas. As far as putting
it into stores, those shelf spaces cost A LOT OF MONEY.

Actually, the exe was the latest at the time of burn but using our cool
patching system was very easy to update with subsequent releases.

The features that were definately not obsolete were the higher resolution
graphics and soundfiles on the CD as well as the high resolution dll that
was unavailable for download versions. The fact that they were already on
the CD and that the CD was read as the path were nice features at the time
and eliminated a lot of download time (which back then was quite an issue
for many).
