Second Life Havok4 Public Beta 1 Release Notes (September 28th, 2007)

This release of the Second Life simulator includes an upgrade of the Havok physics engine to v4. This is an internal update release, not a "new features" release from a physics perspective. Please read the Havok4 Beta Wiki for more information about this first public preview of the Havok4 engine implementation in Second Life.

See http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Havok_4_Beta_Home for up-to-date information about this Beta release.


Public Beta Test Grid

We expect the public beta test for Havok4 to be very active, with many participants. We have prepared a test grid that allows for many types of physics-related tests. The test regions will include:

   * Orientation Islands
   * Welcome Areas
   * Lusk
   * Several sandboxes

How Do I Stay "In The Loop" With Havok4 Testing?

  1. Attend Regular Havok4 Office Hours In-World
  2. TELL US about everything you find using the Public Issue Tracker
     (https://jira.secondlife.com)

Please enter bugs using:

   * PROJECT "Second Life Service - SVC"
   * COMPONENT "Physics"!


Known Issues

The following issues are known in the current Second Life Havok4 build, and several of them are already being worked on. We decided not to hold off on releasing the public beta for these, and will update the server code on the public beta test simulators as we have fixes completed.

   * Kart stops too quickly (and tumbles too easily when going over bumps, 
     as well as some odd collision behavior) 
   * Bonifacio has very high script time (and is running VERY slowly) 
   * Short-range teleport script not working correctly 
   * Flocking birds script behaves differently on Havok4 (birds acquire 
     extra energy over time and eventually "rocket" out of sim) 
   * Some physical TargetOmega objects do not spin 
   * Sitting on anything but top face of a box will fail 
   * C-Tech 2050 hover ship spirals out of control after several minutes 
     of flying and turning 
   * Sitting avatars do not always contact seat 
   * Making an object non-physical while it's rolling leaves it rotating 
   * Bouncing off of a plane is different if the plane is physical or 
     non physical 
   * Drop a large cube on a small cube, they interpenetrate when they 
     shouldn't 
   * A sphere interpenetrating into a larger object can launch both 
   * Physical spheres on uneven ground sink into the ground 
   * Your avatar direction does not update on other viewers (Avatar A 
     turns, avatar b's viewer does not update showing the rotation until 
     Avatar A does something else such as walk, run, jump or fly) 
   * In some cases maximum link distance exceeds 32m 
   * Vehicles collide with phantom tubes, rings, and torii

Release Notes for Second Life 1.19.1(0) March 6th, 2008

New features and changes:

  • Physically accurate atmospheric rendering and lighting (previously code named WindLight)
    • Animateable day cycles
    • Vastly improved realistic water with reflections and glimmer
    • "Glow" as new object attribute
    • Avatar Impostoring, which can speed up crowded scenes tremendously
    • A new cleaned-up, easy to use Graphics Preferences tab with simple and advanced options for performance/quality settings
  • Additional rendering optimizations:
    • Faster, more reliable occlusion culling - occluded regions are discovered instantaneously, eliminating random bad frames due to the camera moving too quickly
    • No geometry transform overhead on region crossing - results in region crossings being slightly smoother
    • Faster frustum culling - less time is spent determining what's visible, thus giving better overall framerates
    • No copy-to-texture for ripple water - objects under water are rendered to texture at half resolution, resulting in better overall framerates
    • Faster sky updates - the non-WindLight (aka no-shader) skies update quicker - even faster than the pre-WindLight skies!
    • Single pass shiny when using shaders - making an object shiny will no longer require it to be rendered twice, which results in virtually free shiny functionality from a performance standpoint
    • Single pass terrain when using shaders - the terrain is no longer drawn in two passes, which, from a performance standpoint, results in virtually free high detail terrain for shader friendly cards (See the System Recommendations at http://secondlife.com/corporate/sysreqs.php)
    • Improved object update code (less work for the CPU) - attachments are no longer added to the active list, which improves performance in crowded areas
    • Better scheduling of Avatar LOD (Level of Detail) updates - Avatar LOD is now calculated every 16 frames as opposed to every single frame, which removes redundant work
    • Better Avatar culling through more accurate bounding boxes - Avatar bounding boxes now match their current animation, resulting in more optimized culling of avatars that are not visible in the frame
    • Better tree rendering (70% fewer matrix operations, no reliance on GL matrix stack) - results in improved performance for tree rendering
    • Trimmed unused state in LLDrawable, LLSpatialGroup, LLOctree, and LLFace - results in memory savings
    • 16-bit index buffers are now used instead of 32-bit buffers - improves memory bandwidth for rendering geometry
    • For more information, see: https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/WindLight
    • Known Issue:
      • VWR-1749: Second Life viewer client freezes on MacBook Pro
  • Parcel Media - adds the ability to display Web based media on a parcel
    • New API for Media Rendering
    • Enables Web content inworld
    • Added two new click actions, one for playing movies, and one for opening media
    • Embedded web browser
    • Added support for Media resizing
  • Estate-Level Abuse Reporting
    • Estate owners and managers now have the ability (under World > Region/Estate) to enter an email address where abuse reports will be sent.
    • If this address is empty, abuse reports will go to Linden Lab as usual. If the address is present, the abuse reports will be sent there instead. In both cases, all abuse reports are logged by Linden Lab.
  • Voice changes
    • Changed the default voice volume to be a bit higher, to better match the volume of in-world sounds
    • Changed the voice volume slider to default to the middle of its range, so voice volume can be boosted above the default
  • Improved Linux Voice support
    • Better support for USB headsets and other devices
    • Better voice audio quality
