Maintenance: we have good news and, well, another good news

We are working on integrating bots and Second Life with Discord. Thus, the bots just got a new experimental brains upgrade which is able to be a Discord bot in addition to Second Life bot.

We’ve rolled out the experimental release yesterday, and, ehm, it was too experimental. Few hours later, the subject bots started crushing everything around, eating memory without washing the hands first… you know, very inadequate behavior for good bots!

The reason has been found: this is a Discord’s unstoppable fun made our decent bots crazy! Our team did and applied a special Discord-resistance patch for all of the bots. So far, everything is calm since then!

No kidding: we’ve did a release with new experimental integrations, and it messed some things up. Few updated bots managed to overload and crush two of our servers, causing the account and system lags. The problem is fixed now.

If you are using Discord for your Second Life activity, please contact us (either by replying to this blog post, or by contacting our support). We will be glad to know the ways you use Discord!

Advanced Notices now allows custom scheduling!

Advanced Notices add-on is designed to enhance your business by sending important notices and announcements using a calendar-based interface.

Recently we conducted a survey asking for feedback regarding the Advanced Notices add-on, as always our users were kind enough to provide very useful feedback. Thank you!

We added a feature to allow custom scheduling, when you visit your Advanced Notices add-on

1. Visit your Advanced Notices and create new notice
2. Enable the Repeat option
3. You will notice the Custom option that you can click.

This option will allow you to enter your own schedule, which our system will recognize, parse it with our scheduling and give you the confirmation.

 

To find out more information and what kind of scheduling rules you can currently enter, Visit Custom Schedule Documentation

You can purchase the Advanced Notices add-on from our add-on store – if you need any help, feel free to contact our 24/7 Live Chat Support

Bot TotalControl LSL library in Beta!

We are pleased to announce the release of the beta version a highly demanded bot API called TotalControl which is designed to offer simplicity for LSL developers to interact with SmartBots personal bots.

TotalControl API works very much like our AdminBot API in terms of usage, but instead of being focused on group management, we focused this on having control of every aspect of your bot(s).

TotalControl is the LSL library to control your Second Life bot and use 100% of its abilities.

TotalControl allows you to:

  • Move your bot
  • Change its appearance
  • Listen to local chat and incoming IM’s
  • Send messages
  • Manage groups
  • Create note cards, edit send them
  • Manage bot’s inventory
  • Sim Management (if bot has sim rights)

How does it work:

  •  place your script and TotalControl library into the object
  •  your script sends commands using llMessageLinked
  •  your script receives events (local chat, IMs, money transactions) using link_message LSL event

Your bot can do literally everything the regular avatar can do in SL. This allows creating truly alive and useful bots.

TotalControl provides simplicity, and easy in terms of integrating with existing projects with only 1 line of code required to send a command to your bot.

This is a beta release so we appreciate any feedback, requests or issues.

SmartBots to become 100% mobile-friendly

Dear friends! First of all, we appreciate you are being with SmartBots since 2009!

The development of SmartBots started in 2009 – the early mobile era. Shame on us, we did not paid enough attention to mobile users yet! Working with Second Life bots for almost 10 years, we finally dare to rework all SmartBots services and pages to become 100% mobile-friendly.

This is a quite tricky work because SmartBots uses multiple web engines and platforms (if you are interested: Linux and Windows, PHP and Perl, C# and NodeJS, xml and Vue). We have to dig into each engine and rework it until it supports all modern mobile phones! A complex task we have to do.

Helpful hints

We will start reworking website parts one by one. If you really need something to be adapted asap, don’t hesitate to contact us (just drop a word to our support!). We will prioritize all requests. The website main page has been adapted for a mobile usage, more to come!

Plans besides mobility

Despite of this task complexity, we will keep developing new services and improving existing tools. The new bot tool will be published within the next few days!
