Shields races – February 22nd, 2020

Bad, bad SL… After getting rid of some groups of bots (stupid game that allow army of bots lagging the grid) we thought everything was ok for our races. Foolish us. No survivors in 1st race.

Fortunately, 2nd race wouldn’t go through the faulty sim and we had a better, but far from perfect, turn. Moon crashed because was late in make a turn and entered the doomed sim, while the rest of us fought severe lag

    Huh? And they don’t serve no other purpose than just grieving/lagging?
    How can LL allow such things to happen? Orca says “Fuck” in a Linden disco and will be banned – and these @$$holes can run amok on the grid?
    Fuk dat! 😦

    • It’s a stupid game called “tiny empires”. It seems that there are rewards for clan members online, so many put bots in groups underwater. Usually they appear as circles but not all, of 9-13 puppies. There are 3 ways to get rid of them:

      Fastest is to go into the sim and shout that we will have a race through there and need the sim cleaned – it seems they maintain a look on them, and soon the bots disappear… (many times asking one group to leave is enough for all nearby groups go off)

      Not as fastest but what I do when have time is to ask Linden to restart the invaded sims – at the same time we have freshly restarted sims and bots are gone;

      And finally, what seems to me the best but can not be in time for the race is to report abuse.

      We’ve found them all over the grid, whenever there are open waters. It’s a plague.

      • Ooooh! 😮 I thought the Tiny Empires craze disappeared in 2009 or so. Now it’s back again? It’s for people who don’t know what to do in SL. I don’t know why they don’t just log off. :/


  2. they’ve been all over the place… We managed to get them (mostly) out of the Blake Sea, but they creep back up here and there… They are a plague for sail racing as they drag the performance way down even though they do nothing but hang out underwater. They sheer number is enough to make a regular homestead sim unstable for sailors to go through.
