Hipihi big changes in new version 50011

Hipihi servers are down at the moment as part of an upgrade.  The upgrade has some big changes.  I hope it goes smoothly.  I haven’t seen these changes in action yet.

This list was in a post in the Hipihi forums Overseas Zones section for the benefit of we Chinese-language-challenged folks.

I suggest this would be a good time for virtual world enthusiasts to apply for the Hipihi test.

 1. Avatar attach points

2. Land editing rights control (now supports co-building)

3. Community chat

4. New naming system (now supports your native language)

5. Speed-tree

6. New reference-lines in object editing mode(F7: lock/unlock reference lines, F8:open/close reference lines and adjust line density)

7. Primary scripting on the client side, e.g. land management, access right, hotkey is F4. scripting language is Lua, we will release a help file soon.

8. Vote function

9. Enhanced avatar customization , finer modeling and more adjustable parameters

10. Optimized avatar collision physics(supports movement on a slanted surface)

11. script editing window

12. Faster model and texture map loading

This list includes some very nice features such a scripting,  multiple users building on a parcel,  and improved avatar physics on slopes.

I must restrain myself from staying up all night to try it out.  Darn it.

    The downtime is longer than I’d come to believe.

    I’m eager to see it.

    There should be a post in this blog with a link to a video of a Hipihi avatar wearing attachments, looking like a tiny little cartoon character.
