Sim control API functions (LSL and HTTP)

New HTTP API command: simrestartWe are starting to publish the sim/region-related set of HTTP API functions. These functions allow restarting regions, returning objects, ejecting/banning residents.

The first function which is available already is simrestart. The function allows initiating the region restart (and canceling the procedure, too).

P.S. These API functions does not require a Sim Governor addon-module.

P.P.S. We’ve added a shorthand LSL function to call SmartBots API. While API is easily accessible in a raw way, using a function may be extremely handy.

  1. Visit your bot’s sim governor page.
  2. Select the sim you wish to change.
  3. Tick the ‘Teleport bot back after doing this restart’ box.
  4. Add the restart entry.
