Summary0005388: Scripts do not respond across sim boundary
DescriptionScripts do not respond to chat (or sensor scan) across a sim boundary.

Reproduce the problem by entering the attached script into a prim. The listen method will be invoked if chat is used in the same sim, but moving the prim across a sim boundary stops it from responding. The same problem occurs when scripts try to communicate via llSay across a sim boundary. It's not a matter of distance, because shout can be used as well as simple chat.

A similar problem occurs when sensors are used. The sensor method is invoked when suitable prims are in the same sim, but not across a sim boundary.

[The default physics engine is used.]
Additional InformationThe attached script file demonstrates this problem.

I'm not sure if this is a real bug or not. The LSL wiki doesn't state if llSay and its variants can be used across SIM boundaries. Voice chat is confined to a region/parcecl so wouldn't expect a say to be heard across a region boundary. It would be a griefer tool otherwise as someone could put a device using llShout at a region boundary to annoy people in a neighbouring region.

I would close this as not a bug.

Its a bug, chat goes across borders in Second Life.

llSay, llWhisper, llShout
( and avatar viewer client channel similar methods of text channel communication)

1. in SL sims: these methods do propagate across region/sim borders.
2. in OS core sims: these methods do not propagate across region/sim borders.
This has become almost the "expected" or "normal" situation in OS.

One workaround that has been used to get text communications past region borders, is llRegionSay to/from an HTTP relay to/from an external server, usually with some type of PHP comms and database. I'm using this method now to communicate between 12 regions adjacent to Lani region of OSgrid.
