Sansar Release Notes for May 1, 2017



  • Object Editing - Embed multiple lights, sound emitters, and scripts to add more interactivity to your objects. To get started, see Object Editing.
  • New Scene Objects List Filters - Filter the list by lights, sound emitters, and scripts.
  • Multi-select lock/unlock support - Select multiple objects and lock/unlock all at once via the new right-click menu on the scene objects panel.
  • Sound Preview - You can now preview sound from the audio emitters placed in your scene directly in Edit Mode. With this new feature, you no longer need to publish your scene to test your audio! For more information, see Audio Preview.
  • Scripting - With new and updated APIs, you now have access to:
    • Memory, MemoryData, MemoryUseLevel - Memory APIs reports how much memory scripts are using and push alerts on high memory usage.  
    • AgentInfo.ObjectId property - returns the ObjectId of the AgentInfo. Use with Scene.FindSceneObject to get an agent's SceneObject.
    • Scene.FindScript property - Looks up the script object associated with the given scriptId. Use with chat events to get a reference to the script class that sent the chat.
    • LindenLab.Script.Testing Namespace - Tools for Testing Scripts.
  • Smoother avatar animation - With this update, avatars have smoother movement, even in populated experiences.
  • Improved keyframed object animation - Moving objects, such as elevators, no longer stagger and now move smoothly. In addition, dynamic objects now move accordingly, even while standing on a moving object.

Bugs Resolved

  • Reported crashing issues from users with slower internet connections.
  • It is possible to enter VR mode while in the My Looks menu and the Character Editor.
  • No error message appears when a user attempts to use an invalid experience URI.



  • Displaying Persona Names - Persona Names are now displayed on the store, instead of persona handles. 
  • Item Scrolling - You can now seamlessly view items on the Store and Atlas.
  • Sorting on Search Results - You can now sort items on the store and atlas search results pages.
