Hunting at Dawn

I want to start today’s post with a thank you note to you. I had a wonderful feedback from the role-play community after my recent post, “Chronicles of Counter-Earth: The Battle of the Meters (Part I)”, was published in The Good Gorean, Monday, Oct. 7. Several users reached out to join the discussion in my ims, and point me in the right direction. The role-play component of the HIT Gor meter is yet to be explored as I continue to reach out to the system’s administrator to find out more about this exciting feature; I’ve message this user several days ago and I am still waiting for an answer. Because of this situation, I am currently waiting on final details before I click the button and release the second part of this series. Hopefully, I will get an answer soon.

This round of the Driftwood event has plenty of Halloween and Fall-themed items with a healthy mix of role-play and urban items.

Chronicles of Counter-Earth: The Battle of the Meters (Part I)

A few weeks ago, I took some time to explore a beautiful role-play region called Vikings, and during my short visit, I had the opportunity to play with an interesting combat meter called HIT Combat. Weeks later, another story-line took my character to a region that also had the same combat system. But this time, I was in Gor playing with something called HIT Gor.

Just in Gorean role-play sims of
Second Life®, there are now three combat meters to choose from. Although some of the features can be a laborious process, the whole experience is fun and surprisingly strategic. But, what is the HIT Gor meter? What are the other available meters for Goren role-play and combat? What are the main differences between them? Where can I find these meters? – being a role-player in the community, I am determined to answer these questions for you and give my input on what features I would like to see improved. Readers are invited to keep the discussion going in the comments below; give us your opinion and what can be done to further improve them.

Let it be clear: I’m not here to diminish the meters or their creators in any way, shape or form. We all should be appreciative on the time and effort the developers dedicate to maintain these gadgets running properly, providing us with endless hours of fun. Glitches happen and bugs are predictable in the age of technology. If you encounter a problem with any of these combat systems, send a notecard or IM one of the team members. Leave hate where it belongs: in your mom's basement.
The Gorean Meter has been around since the dawn of times; since Nov. 20, 2007, to be exact. At one point and if memory doesn’t fail me, the Gorean Meter was the only meter role-players had access to. During GM’s golden years, Gorean role-play was thriving and growing; a number of mIRC users migrated to Second Life, looking for more exciting ways to play their characters. The approachable combat was thrilling for this new crop of role-players but, it also turned out to be the downfall of the system. As the years went by, weapons and overall combat became more refined; players started to report a number of glitches; and other users were determined to find ways around the system to win the game. The overwhelming request of support from the community rooted an irreparable relationship with some of the administrators of the Gorean Meter. A few months later, the zCS meter was born and the rest, history.

Competition is here, but the Gorean Meter endures through times. There are loyal users that support and encourage the use of this meter, and such is clearly visible across a number of BtB and GE regions. The Gorean Meter is plain, simple and it works.

Next month, the Gorean Meter will be 12 years old and to be honest, I expected to see much more from this system as it reaches another milestone. The GM Crafting System was something I truly enjoyed to play with – believe it or not, you had to craft bandages using raw materials, which you either had to purchase with your coins or steal from role-play servers or other players. The system promoted role-play, combat, and a whole lot of land exploring. Twelve years later, I expected to see a flawless meter, and a bigger and better crafting system. Instead, the project was abandoned and the meter has fewer features than it had 10 years ago. The GM support portal has not been properly updated since last year and to this day, it continues to be difficult to hear back from the admin team when you reach out to them.

If you don’t fight on a daily basis, the Gorean Meter is for you. This meter delivers a satisfying sword/bow play, and the HUD is easy to understand. New users won’t be overwhelmed with a sheer number of options, making GM’s user interface perfect for beginners. 
zCS is the #1 combat meter in the Gorean community and is slowly becoming popular with other fantasy role-play regions outside of Gor. We all love it and the set-up is a painless process. The system has several contemporary bells and whistles, allowing players to excel at swordplay, and discover exciting hidden features such as achievements. The beautifully-designed HUD and website presentation will make you feel right at home. What emerges is one of the most complete combat systems of Second Life with full access to community and individual statistics. As a result, combatants often check the leaderboards to work their way up to ultimate glory.

Although zCS does a tremendous job on statistics and meter updates, it does not deliver a clear explanation on how achievements are met or how the bank system really works; players are required to check the profiles of skilled fighters to learn more about it. According to one of the system’s administrators, there are close to 25 achievements and players are rewarded depending on a number of activities and earned XP. Surprisingly, these details are intentionally out of sight, allowing players to naturally earn these achievements and grow experience with the community. A proper level system might come at a later date and expect further improvements/updates to the system.

If you want to know more about the bank feature, you must contact one of the administrators to find out if your region is eligible for a bank or get busy in emptying the pockets of your captives. Back in March, the Sphinx interviewed one of the developers and published a few personal notes on zCS’ economy in gorean sims at "A Dream of Spring."

In terms of gameplay, zCS is unmatched - combat is crisp and rewarding, with a universal control scheme that makes it a breeze to pick up even for a new character.

Feel free to get a copy of both combat meters at the The Good Gorean HUB. Stay tuned for the second part of this article.

Fall Brings New Life to Second Life - the Blogger Network, Firestorm Updates and More

There are several updates since last Friday’s Linden Lab announcement, and residents are excited to finally see some of the revealed initiatives going live. The Firestorm viewer has also released an update to support the new Bakes on Mesh feature with a few other perks.

Firestorm, Bakes on Mesh and Discord 

If you are a Firestorm user, you probably received a message to update your viewer - these are major updates that will allow your viewer to support the Bakes on Mesh feature and substantially reduce your avatar rendering cost. If you chose to skip the update, you will start spotting avatars wearing funny-looking blue and yellow textures. It will be a matter of time until the marketplace is flooded by BoM-supported merchandise and all residents will be forced to install a newer version of Firestorm. Get familiar with the Bakes on Mesh and visit Slink, Maitreya, or Blueberry stores to purchase your first BoM products.
With this update, Firestorm also features an external note card editor. Residents can now use text editing software such as Microsoft Word or NotePad and upload the files directly to Second Life. There are no charges associated with these uploads.
The new Firestorm version also includes the ability to link your Discord account to your Second Life. The popular VoIP application can now display your Second Life online status, user name, location and session length. You must have both clients running when linking both accounts.
OpenSim users will continue to use an older Firestorm version until a developer is available to assist with future updates.

Second Life Blogger Network

Independent bloggers/vloggers or content creators that own a blog, are now invited to join the SLBN. To be part of this project, you must fill out this form and agree to all terms and conditions. Once the form is submitted, Linden Lab will begin to monitor your blog posts; selected posts will be featured in the new Community News Feed, the official viewer login page, and social media platforms. Adult content will not be considered. Instead, Linden Lab will focus on promoting posts that highlight the Second Life experience through high-quality photography, articles, videos and other acceptable content.

If your blog features occasional adult content or nudity you may apply, but be aware that Linden Lab will only promote posts that are compliant with the content guidelines. You can also opt-out of the SLBN anytime you want, by submitting the same form and check the opt-out section located at the very bottom.
Marketplace, Last Names and Cloud Migration       

Linden Lab’s recent blog entry, “Web User Group and Updates!”, published Monday, Sept. 30, shares the latest developments on the return of Last Names, Cloud Migration and the latest Marketplace improvements.
“First, we need to acknowledge that a large portion of our time has been spent making on-going back-end changes that our Residents may never notice directly, but which will provide a much more secure and pleasant experience for all going forward. For example, we’ve already completed a full-scale migration of multiple web services away from our dedicated hardware colo and into the cloud. Others have been moved from third-party vendors to an in-house implementation. Still, others have been decoupled from their previous dependencies into stand-alone services. This is all part of our long term plan to move all of our services, from the web properties to the Second Life grid itself, providing us greater reliability, flexibility, and security across the board. We’ll let you try to guess which services have already been migrated - we’re betting you’ll never know the difference!

Second, we’re extremely pleased to say that in the last month we’ve made significant progress in laying the foundations for the long-awaited Name Changes feature.  All of our teams have been working hard on preparing the grid and all of our systems to accommodate account name changes, both first and last. We’re not quite ready to release all the details yet, but suffice to say that if you’ve ever wanted to change up your account name for whatever reason (and we know you have!) STAY TUNED.

Finally, our continuing dedication to improving the Marketplace experience continues. Last month we were very excited to release the new Store Managers functionality. And this month, we’ve been refining that experience, as well as adding more new features for Merchants such as in-world messaging when an item is sold. But we haven’t forgotten the most important part of the Marketplace, the customers! For them, we’ve added a “Gifts Received” page with details about what the items are, who sold it, who bought it, any gift message, with much-requested options for self-service redelivery!”
These new features will impact your Second Life in one way or another. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I’m confident to say that Bakes on Mesh will be beneficial to the grid. Role-play and combat in Second Life has been affected over the years and as a result of that, we saw a number of residents leaving to play in faster, better fighting games. It is crucial for the Linden Lab to keep their focus on ways to improve and keep the system as stable as possible. Hopefully, Bakes on Mesh is the beginning of a series of significant improvements that will encourage the return of e-sports enthusiasts and attract new users to Second Life.
