Fantasy Faire Extended

I apologise for my lack of posts regarding Fantasy Faire this year, I probably should have withdrawn from my blogging responsibilities but this is a good cause and I wanted to support it. I’ve had to deal with the most painful and heartbreaking RL issue of my life this month and that pain will be with me forever. No words can explain this but it’s something pretty much everyone finally has to deal with.

Due to the problems we’ve all witnessed, Fantasy Faire has been extended by a day. This is great news and gives people more time to go and see this wonderful event.

However what is exciting, although it doesn’t sound it, is watching prim cubes race around your sim after you’ve engaged in a bit of setting up and scripting.

There are bugs with Pathfinding at the moment, which is no surprise as testing is only just getting extended to sim owners, we’re back into the more variables the more issues arise territory, but the support I’ve received on the issues I have had with Pathfinding, have been absolutely superb, the team behind this are extremely enthusiastic. Unfortunately I haven’t had as much time as I’d like to poke around with it, but I’m getting there.

Now, so far I’ve managed to set some paths and then with the aid of the Pathfinding LSL functions I was able to create characters and set them on patrol on my sim.
