Now You see it…Now You don’t (2)

Some while back I titled a post “Now You see it…”. Well, there is a much more serious issue afflicting SL now which bears that title much more bravely. Following the release onto Main Server of the “Interest List” project that has been trying the patience of Magnum RC residents for a couple of weeks, the reports of more and more “Missing prims” that magically render once you touch them are flooding onto the forums.

That the issue is primarily a viewer-side bug, and that it “MAY” affect Firestorm more than the Linden Viewer is quite simply immaterial. It is yet another unintended effect of Simon Linden’s work to improve sim-viewer data transfer bandwidth. I have already reported to Linden Lab a fully reproducible issue with Shadows and Lights when Interest List was first introduced to the Grid, but I get the impression it is being studiously ignored. Quite frankly, at this stage, my conclusion must be that it simply does NOT work properly. Whether Linden Lab can execute an update to the viewer to avoid this very deleterious bug remains to be seen. At this stage I’m not even sure that they’ll admit that it exists. What can or will be done by others apart from LL also remains to be seen.
