Havok4 Fireside Chat with Sidewinder Linden

Category: Chat, Discussion, Grid Performance, Lindens, Simulator by Stone Culdesac

Please join us tonight, Tuesday, April 15th at 6:00 pm SLT at the ISTE Island Beach/Campfire area for a presentation/discussion about the Havok4 physics engine by Sidewinder Linden, program manager.

Havok4 is currently being rolled out across Second Life (literally as we speak), with the goals of a more realistic simulator experience, increased viewer stability, and greater design capabilities for inworld developers.

We will be doing a rolling restart this Wednesday and Thursday to roll out the patches to the server that were to be rolled out with last week’s cancelled rolling restart. Changes include security patches, performance improvements for Havok4 (including the issue that “openspace” or “void” sims have with Havok4), and code designed to mitigate the load on the central database systems.

    Please note that this is the combination of two different announcements, one new, and one old. The rolling restart tonight is the beginning of bug fix update. The original rollout of Havok4 happened through the period of Mar 31-Apr 1, 2008.

    Regards,

    Sidewinder
