that is exactly what it is supposed to do , from the SL Wiki ..

"Often used to make an object appear to be unaffected by gravity."

llSetBuoyancy affects overall buoyancy to the world not just where water is involved ..

If you want to make an object appear to float it requires a little more to the script ..

Something like ..










        llSetVehicleFloatParam(VEHICLE_HOVER_TIMESCALE, 0);



"The default buoyancy for an object is 0. Setting this to exactly 1 will cause the object to float as if no gravity exists. Values greater than 1 will cause the object to float up, while values between 0 and 1 mean a gentler than regular fall, the closer to 0 the closer to normal behavior. Setting a negative value will simulate a downward force, which will also cause the affected prim/object to vibrate a lot more on the ground while the physics engine tries to "settle" it."

try this script in sl and in opensimulator. And attach to your hand.

    llSetStatus(STATUS_PHYSICS, TRUE);


    on_rez(integer param)

That should not work at all, as you can't set an avatar physical, so if it is attached physics don't work ..

But the end answer to your initial report is, llSetBuoyancy is not intended to make things float on water, never was, it is overall world buoyancy.

Buoyancy is just a gravity modifier, no relation to water level
to take water level in consideration you need to script

unlike SL, llSetBuoyancy on attached prims does not set Buoyancy to avatars.
not sure if we will change this in future.

apparent misuse of ll function. reopen if not
