Welcome to Friti's BrainStorm. This page will be basically a combination of a sandbox, and a development page. Pages created and edited here may or may not make it into the the official wiki content.

Also to be found here are some experiments which may or may not lead to something.

The purpose of this is to increase my own knowledge of wiki-related matters (editing, techniques, etc) and to lift the OpenSim wiki to a higher level. In the process, this will also allow me to clean up my user page ;-)

Plans and Ideas

These are not on the todo list (yet), because they have not yet moved beyond the "idea" stage.

  • Write some end user guides. Like quickstart guides for various actions (how to set up a sim, how to clone the Git repo and build, etc). Everything should be very simple, and easy to understand. No technical stuff, just the procedure. Right now, the wiki is still confusing to many people who are looking for just some basic info.
  • OSSL-specific script library. No such thing exists on the internet yet. (if it does, then i have missed it)
  • Portals. First to come to mind would be a scripting portal and a developer portal. I'm sure there can be more then just these two.
  • A quickstart guide for inexperienced users, leaving most technical details out, just helping people to get their server up and running. At the end of the article, placing info on where to find more in-depth info.


  • Write a stub on Collada Meshes. Included should be a list of (free) software that can be used to create collada mesh. (Also redirect "mesh" to "collada mesh"!)

New pages

Quick tests. To be ignored!

Threat level


Deprecation template.

Purpose: To be used on the pages of deprecated functions. New page is to be created with replacement function. Suggest copying over the content of the page of the deprecated function, and make modifications in the content of the new page.
Usage: {{deprecate|<MM DD YYYY>|<newname>}}
Example: {{deprecate|Nov. 21 1997|Friti}}

3rd Party template.

Purpose: To be used on pages dealing with 3rd party add-ons, modules, and so forth, so as to clearly, uniformly, and effortlessly mark them as 3rd party software.
Usage: {{thirdparty}}
Example: {{thirdparty}}

Multicol template

Imported from Wikipedia and very useful for making large lists appear in multiple columns, and thus reduce scrolling. And example would be OSSL_Implemented.

Multicol applied

This is some text.

This is some text too.

And here's some more text.

And whoa! Even more text!!!

Disambiguation Template

Importing the disambiguation template from Wikipedia to our own wiki.

Securing some code

Didn't want this code to get lost after turning the containing page into a redirect.

    string drawList = "";
    drawList = osDrawLine (drawList, 10,20,240,20);
    drawList = osMovePen (drawList, 50,100);
    drawList = osDrawImage(drawList, 100,100,"" );
    drawList = osSetPenSize (drawList, 1);
    drawList = osMovePen (drawList, 50,70);
    drawList = osDrawEllipse (drawList, 20,20);
    drawList = osMovePen(drawList, 90,70);
    drawList = osDrawRectangle (drawList, 20,20 );
    drawList = osMovePen (drawList,130,70);
    drawList = osDrawFilledRectangle(drawList, 20,20);
    drawList = osSetFontSize (drawList, 12 );
    drawList = osMovePen (drawList,15,32);
    string regionName = llGetRegionName();
    drawList = osDrawText (drawList, "Hello and welcome to " + regionName );
    drawList = osSetFontSize (drawList, 7);
    drawList = osSetPenColour (drawList, "blue");
    drawList = osMovePen (drawList, 70,220);
    drawList = osDrawText (drawList, "The End");
    osSetDynamicTextureData("", "vector", drawList, "", 0);
