Control Panel payments: the missing feature is back

We’ve just returned the missing feature to send the L$ directly from Control Panel. The feature was missed because the advanced BankBot add-on was trying to cover this functionality (even if add-on is not purchased).

Thanks to our user’s quick feedback https://userpowered.io/preview/16#up_feedback=375 we’ve found the issue and the feature is now back!

Everyone is welcome to post ideas and feedback in the UserPowered widget. It is located on the right side of each page ===>

The Bot Control Panel refined with new features

The Bot Control Panel is a central part of your bot’s management. It helps to manage many aspects of your personal bot, including –

  • Messaging.
  • Accepting inventory and invitations.
  • Viewing your bank balance.
  • Managing your add-ons.
  • Set your bot’s location.

Plus many more.

[SOLVED] Network issues and numerous bot restarts

Bots are up and running

Today we were fighting a network issue which caused some bots (actually, about 10% of our hosted bots) to login and logout periodically.

The problem started with some bots getting frozen: they were not responding to the watchdog service commands (this is a SmartBots internal service which pokes bots periodically to restart those which lost a connection to the reality). Thus, bots began to restart.

However, the bots just restarted were still unavailable: they were connecting but then frozen again. Our emergency team got a signal that something is wrong: the number of crazy bots has increased to several percents. Even during a SL rolling restarts, this amount never exceeds 2-3% of bots total.

Crossing sim borders is cool with SmartBots

Bots crossing sim borders“Sim-border crossing” is the moment when you (your your bot) moves from one region to another (a nearby one). A lot of SL projects (for example, traveling) cover multiple sims.

SmartBots and multi-sim support

Till recently, SmartBots bots were single-sim. Today we are proud to present a complete multi-sim support! Your bots may move across sims now.

Enable it

Since this is a resource-consumptive option, it is disabled by default. To enable it, visit your Bot Control Panel and enable the new feature:

control-panel-multi-sim-bot

See it

To see how sim-crossing works with bots, visit Elite Equestrian project. Along with beautiful horses, you will be able to travel across the multiple sims in a cart or on horseback.
