April

The teething problems with Direct Delivery meant that initial migration deadlines for getting rid of magic boxes had to be pushed back, there is still no definite date for migration.

Pathfinding started to get rolled out for testing and I volunteered a sim for the tests. I experimented with some patrolling prim cubes, unfortunately I haven’t got much further!

Fantasy Faire 2012

Fantasy Faire 2012 ran from April 21 – 30th, it was extended by one day, I took a look at a few stores.

Inara Pey reported that Linden Lab had obtained the rights to sublicense Havok. Linden Lab produced a page on the Wiki for this. The result was that TPV’s had to abide by LL’s agreement to obtain the sublicense, which is perfectly fair.

After their call to bloggers earlier in the year, Linden Lab made a more quiet call to specific artists regarding images for their website. Strawberry Singh being one of those asked to produce work for Linden Lab. This created a small ripple of damned if you do or damned if you don’t when there was some criticism of the nature of this call for assistance not being open to all. However the results were widely greeted in a positive light.

I apologise for my lack of posts regarding Fantasy Faire this year, I probably should have withdrawn from my blogging responsibilities but this is a good cause and I wanted to support it.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.

Fantasy Faire 2012

Fantasy Faire 2012, has issued a call for bloggers, which you can read here. There are some terms and conditions associated with this, you need to have been blogging for at least two months and update your blog once a week to be accepted. I’m not totally happy with restrictions like this but I imagine it’s because you can be assigned to sims and merchants, if you’re not a regular blogger you may not realise what this entails and how time consuming it can be. However I’d rather they didn’t have the restrictions, but they do, there is some logic in this when it comes to being assigned to a sim or store.

If you are assigned to a store, you will need to write about at least one item from each store you’re assigned to. This means you will need to be pretty sure you can meet these goals because if you’re assigned to a store and can’t blog, then that means someone else won’t be blogging about it either. However if the idea of being assigned to sims and stores is unappealing, you can still apply to blog about Fantasy Faire 2012 in general, you will get sneak previews if you go either route so if you think general blogging is better, go that route, if you do like the sound of it fill in the online form on the site I linked to above.

Fantasy Faire 2012 is on its way and I’m about to unleash some information, and copy stuff from press releases and their blog! Hurrah! Even if you’re not into fantasy roleplaying, this is a superb event, last year there was fun, games, live music and fabulous events along with beautiful scenery and it’s all for a good cause too, last year’s event raised a very impressive USD$26,917 for Relay For Life, which was a Fantasy Faire record.

This year the event will run between April 21st – 29th, but let’s get the ball rolling with some posts on what has been announced so far. I’ll start with reposting the blog post from the official site about the sims that will be at this year’s event, you can read the original blog post here.
