The trailering system Ive developed for SL is a huge hit ... we going to get Havok in OS any time soon I wonder?

- The prim should look you "in the eye" with the Z axis ( Up) one meter upward from your center (waist) , It should be stable and "flat" in the other two axes. A mental picture may help: if you set a bird on a flat prim with this script, at ground level, the bird will face upward face and keep the wings horizontal.
Your video shows how opensim has all the vectors wrong. That is a minor issue as the box things 'sit on' can be rotated to fit. Your Z is not changing, Opensim uses X to point instead of Z. It should also be stable to the horizon on both axis at right angles to the Z axis. Watch the vectors and compare to the spec: "point its up axis (positive z) towards target, while keeping its forward axis (positive x) below the horizon." Unsaid is that the third axis stable to the horizon in SL.Jan 14, 2015
- I would agree that Bullet is better for Opensim than Havok. BulletPhysics work just not very well in OpenSim. Fixing Bullet should be a lot easier than porting over Havok. Also on a another point, Opensim has to learn to swim on its own, Linden Labs is not going to anything to help OpenSim in the future. They want us to sink. We need jump ahead of them, with better ideas like, better hypergriding local inventories, more scalable architecture, content protection and finally a financial system that works... Look we all love Opensim, and as someone said, this is version1 of an open Metaverse, we need to be designing version 2, not just patching the holes.Jan 14, 2015
- Is nVidia PhysX an option for OpenSim?
(I haven't actually looked into whether the SDK is open source friendly or not.)Feb 17, 2015
- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PhysXIt appears to be proprietary - only free on Windows.
Bullet physics works great - Foir the first time, today I had 300+ physical birds flying with no noticable impact on the server.Feb 17, 2015
- On Windows it's free for non- and commercial use. On Linux and other platforms it's free as long as it's non commercialFeb 18, 2015
