Class Name Interfaces Description
HGFriendsService IHGFriendsService Provides the friends service accessed by foreign grids.


Offering a friendship when on a foreign grid to an avatar local to that grid


  1. On making a friend request, the requester's client sends a FriendshipOffered IM to the current foreign simulator.
  2. The foreign simulator forwards this request to the friendee. If the friendee is elsewhere on the grid, then the message is forwarded to the simulator they are on.
  3. The friendee sees the request. If they are offline and IMs are being stored, they will see this when they next log back on.
  4. If the friendee accepts, then their client sends a AcceptFriendship UDP message to their current simulator.
  5. The foreign simulator stores the friendship information in its grid.
  6. The friendship information is forwarded on to the friendees HGFriendsService with the newfriendship message.
  7. ---
  8. Returning to home grid, the "Please confirm this friendship you made while you were away." message originates from HGFriendsModule.FriendshipMessages().
