Race Day 22 with Bandit 25R at TrYC

The weather conditions become slowly worse. After the rolling Restarts sims and crossings are fine and the script error Messages can be ignored. With the time the sims become more laggy and you sail stop and go on more and more of the sims. Now at one point the animation script error messages will be followed by frozen animations.

example for Windsurfer Animation error: avi stays like this no matter where sails are or if you hike


In a B25 it means the avi jumps into moor Position and the boat cant be steered anymore. You have to moor, unsit, resit, get wind again and continue, around 15-20sec. This happened to all of us at least once in the race and to Yvonne even 3 times.
For this race we used our B25 Course with South East Wind and 18 knots and Yvonne, Dahlia, Candy and Lucy joined me.

The fleet at the briefing

At the first start Dahlia and Candy crashed so we did a restart. At second one the others started quite nicely and i needed to go back because i was overearly and needed to wait until all passed me to go back and start again. My chase began. Sometimes in the middle of the race Candy gave up after her second crash again. Poor Candy enjoying sailing so much but just cant finish a race. And now after nearly two years of trying everything (changing preferences, bandwith, PC on cable, cleaning PC, reducing scripts in avi, different viewers and many more things) we have no more ideas what to do. I feel so sorry for Candy.
After i passed Dahlia on the long upwind to buoy 5 i could smell Lucy in front of me. Yvonne reporting in the meantime of two unsits because of frozen animations was loosing more and more of her lead because of that.

nice Duell with Lucy until she decided later to cuddle with the wreck

In Dunai area Yvonne had in front of me her last “resit” because of the animation errors and i passed her. She would have won definetely without These.

Yvonne finishes
Dahlia finishes
Lucy finishes

Sailing into a sand bank, a wreck or a sim corner are our faults, but that the race will be influenced by these errors now is really annoying. I have added these informations already to my already very long ticket with all these strange effects and LL said they are getting slowly an idea of it and are working on it. Fingers crossed.

Here is the result from yesterday:

    Great! Very nice measure to work with the Lab and let them know what your fleet – and you – experience. They must know that it’s the volunteering activists in yacht clubs, dance clubs, stores and RP sims that make Second Life such a success, that keeps all the residents in game and encourages them to log in regularly. Without sexy people like you and Lucy LL could close the whole shebang already.
