“Sim Governor” module to manage your estates

SmartBots Blog July 22, 2014 by Glaznah Gassner

SmartBots "Sim Governor" module announcementWe are starting the tests of a new SmartBots module, “Sim Governor”. This module allows remotely controlling your sim (or multiple sims) from a web page or from your scripts using SmartBots HTTP API.

All you need is your own bot added to the sim managers list. Bot processes your commands and manages the sim access lists and settings.


With a “Sim Governor” module you get the following functions available (either via a web interface or using HTTP API):

  • Send sim-wide messages
  • Restart your region remotely and cancel restarts
  • Manage access and ban lists
  • Automatically ban group chat spammers on all your estates
  • Add/remove region managers
  • Set various debug options on-the-fly
  • Perform the sim-wide object return (added by your requests)

All operations are being managed by your personal bot. Unlimited number of regions is supported (bot teleports to the region to perform the necessary operations).

Looking forward for your feedback

If you have any specific requests, please reply to this post or drop a message to Glaznah Gassner in-world. We would be glad to extend the functionality of the module on your request.

We also appreciate if you help us testing the access/ban lists if you have an empty sim available.


  1. This sounds like a great module addition!

    For region restarts.. it would be great if we could set a daily/weekly timer to have the bot restart the region automatically on schedule.

  2. Dear Adham, the Sim Governor module has been released. We have no daily/weekly timer published yet (see the recent blog post for explanation) but it is planned and already in development.

  5. Excited about this, and I too would love the capability to set a daily/weekly timer to have the bot restart the region automatically on schedule. Count me in!

  6. Dear Maximus, as I’ve already replied to Adham, the restart timer feature is in development. We’ve released the module without it to get more wishes and comments.

    The scheduled restarts feature will be the very first one to add.
