Comments on: Why is the world map gray? http://blog.kokuaviewer.org/2010/09/13/why-is-the-world-map-gray/ News about the Kokua and Imprudence Viewers Sat, 04 Aug 2018 14:38:36 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=5.1.1 By: Flaran Riggles http://blog.kokuaviewer.org/2010/09/13/why-is-the-world-map-gray/comment-page-1/#comment-1832 Fri, 17 Sep 2010 05:19:39 +0000 http://imprudenceviewer.org/?p=1175#comment-1832 This doesn’t seem to be a permanent problem. I don’t have HTTP texture fetching enabled and some days map is gray while on other days it’s fine. Very odd.

– Andrew Linden has confirmed the issue on LL’s end, and says they “have some people working on it”.

– Starting in 1.3 RC3 and the next Experimental (both due to be released this weekend), we’re including a patch (courtesy of Henri Beauchamp) to fetch map images with HTTP when available. This should fix the gray map issue, plus map images will load more quickly in SL. The viewer will fallback to the old way of fetching map images when HTTP is not available (e.g. on current OpenSim versions).

Not sure if that helps any to know that.

This, while she was playing solitare on the monitor there—her choice of online games.

This may be due to the fact that I enabled HTTP texture fetching in the Advanced section of Preferences. I’d advise everyone who is using the latest weekly to do the same if a gray map bothers you too much(such as if you’re looking for a plot of land to buy).

But that won’t help anyone using current versions of Imprudence, or the many other viewers based on SL 1.23 and earlier.

When LL breaks their own service, the TPVs shouldn’t always have to clean up the mess. ;)
