apart from feeling an urgent need to update sim-on-a-stick based on WhiteStar’s recommendation (because i am very high strung), i also have family in town and just came back from driving for 11 hours around Maine! but . . . i created the new build in the morning, or perhaps i should say i tried to create the new build but after two hours i was having challenges with it =(
so . . . the new version (0.7.3.1) is what i am calling a back-to-basics version! it’s only one 256 x 256 region and is manually started (launch mowes, then launch OpenSim.exe – not terribly complicated!). it does lay in Breen’s port 9100 hack but there isn’t a batch file to use for starting or a region chooser. i’ll be messing with that later – maybe this week, maybe next . . .
the 0.7.3 region chooser version is still online – i archive all past sites and each site has a link to the previous site and the downloads are also all there
keeping in mind that sim-on-a-stick is supposed to be simple and as uncomplicated as possible, packaging this B2B version meant less explanation was needed (it is what it is)
speaking for myself, i know that if something gets too involved i simply won’t do it or i’ll dread doing it. kind of like that New World launcher – that is a seriously great tool but it takes a huge effort to update it and that’s why it was two major versions behind until a month ago
keeping sim-on-a-stick simpler means that i can do updates even if they are just minor ones
