HUD Updates! Thirst 4.2, Rage 2.2, Human 2.2!

February 21st, 2014 by Lyle Maeterlinck

Announcing The Thirst 4.2, The Rage 2.2, and The Human HUD 2.2! The updates to these HUDs are relatively minor, but important.

First, we have reduced the number of scripts in the HUD by 16, from 24 down to 8. Second, we have fixed a couple of bugs that showed up in the last release, namely a memory error that sometimes showed up in the Thirst Fangs Glamour function, and a problem with custom animations when doing bites in Free mode.

We’ve also added a new feature to the scanner: the ability to get text or web stats on any Bloodlines member from your HUD, just by typing in their name. This is a convenience method so that if someone isn’t online, you don’t have to go to the website in order to get basic stats on them. You can access this feature by pressing the stats button on your HUD, then selecting ‘TYPE NAME’ from the dialog, then typing their name on the specified channel. There is a different channel for each of the Thirst, Rage, and Human HUDs. You can also quickly get stats for someone by typing the command stats:[name] on the specified channel. For example, you could type /7 stats: Lyle Maeterlinck for the Thirst HUD. Scans done in this way don’t count towards achievements, sorry!

The new HUD crates also include an auto-updater for your fangs, claws, bite marks, and claw wounds, so you don’t have to move your animations. You just have to rez your attachments on the ground next to the updater, then touch the updater to start the update process. Please refer to the README notecard included in your crate for detailed instructions, and feel free to let me (Lyle Maeterlinck) know if you have any problems with this process.

Thanks to all of you for being a part of Bloodlines and making it one of the biggest and strongest communities in Second Life!

Beware of Fake Affiliate Vendors

February 11th, 2014 by Lyle Maeterlinck

It has come to our attention that someone has copied the prims and textures of our affiliate vendors, and is passing them out. The fake vendors don’t contain our scripts, but they do contain a script by someone else that asks for permission to take Lindens from your account when you rez the vendor. If you grant permission, it will drain your account of Lindens, and then self-destruct.

No one is authorized to hand out Bloodlines affiliate vendors, and real vendors do not have transfer permission. If someone hands you Bloodlines affiliate vendors, they are fake, and will probably try to drain your account. The only place you can get real Bloodlines affiliate vendors is delivered in a crate from our in-world servers in response to you requesting them from the vendors on Liquid Estate. The servers that the vendors are delivered from are all owned by Mars Bracken, and the vendors themselves will be listed as created by Mars Bracken.

If you have fallen victim to this scam, please check your transaction history by logging into secondlife.com, and find the name of the person that your money was sent to, and file an abuse report on that person for Fraud > L$. Be as detailed as possible in your abuse report.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Lyle Maeterlinck directly. Be careful out there!
