I think Phoenix needs…

  • Radar needs to list names and/or display names according to what I have selected in preferences (Show names) or at least have a toggle between login names and display names.
  • Quicker way to get to my Titles list, so I can change titles quickly. With out having to go though communication window. preferably from the Pie menu off my avatar or nametag.
  • Two separate mute lists for residents and objects.
  • An easier way to mute objects attached to residents.  Currently I have to cut and paste the name of the object to mute it manually. It obviously knows the name of the object I want to mute so it should be more automatic, with out muting the resident.
  • Some objects (attached or rezed) don’t have names, making it impossible to mute, can that be resolved in some way?
  • Wildcard function for object mutes so I can mute all objects with similar names but have diffrent version numbers or model monikers (e.g. *xcite* will mute all objects with the name “xcite” in it)
  • Some sort of on-screen indicator letting me know if I’m in phantom mode or not. That way I won’t assume I’m lagged when I can’t walk. Perhaps some easily noticeable change with the nametag when in phantom mode and this appears on other avis who are in phantom mode.
  • The ability to suppress those annoying “The region you have entered is running a different simulator version.” popup message. I don’t need to know, nor care about that, and the popup just gets in my way since I often place my communicator floater at the bottom right.
  • When renaming an item in inventory that has links elsewhere, the link should be renamed with it.
  • When creating a “new outfit” while in appearance mode, the viewer should realize if an item being included into the “new outfit folder” is copyable, and NOT create a link for the item. It should instead make an actual copy of the item and placed in this folder. Otherwise create a link if it’s not copyable.
  • Fix the mini-map so that Avatars who are over 900m in the sky, don’t appear BELOW you (with the down arrow).
  • The ability to disable avatar physics on a selected individuals instead of disabling avatar physics entirely.
  • Fix IM auto-response dialog so it will ONLY respond to muted residents. What it does instead is auto-respond to EVERYONE (muted or not) to every new IM I get.
  • A new feature that auto-blocks group join prompts, LM givers, notecards, and other such scripted spam right after teleporting to a new location for about 30-60 seconds.  I’m so sick and tired getting bombarded with this bullshit after teleporting to some place.
  • Is there ANY way to fix the issue of being kicked offline when a teleport fails? Why can’t it just place me back where I was when the TP fails, instead of acting like my internet connection timed out?
  • Canceling a TP often doesn’t work, and you end up frozen in place, like I have phantom mode on.
Bridge Attachment
Why does it always need to rez a new prim for the bridge attachment every time I login? Why can’t it just use the same one that’s already attached? If it needs to update the script, it should be able to do this while the object is attached; it doesn’t need to rez a new object and do it all over again.  This way it can attach and update the bridge attachment with out me having to be in land I can rez and build.
Also is there a way to manually invoke the bridge creation and attachment function when I do enter an area I can rez on my own? This way if i happen to login in an area I can’t rez, i can move to a rez-able area and then i can tell it to create the bridge and attach it.


  1. Try moving any bridge objects to your #Phoenix folder. That might stop it next time. I think that is what I was told to do long ago, when it was #Emerald.

  2. By the way, I want links to copyable objects to be links, so that when I fit or re-fit one it changes them all, unless I deliberately make a copy.

    • I don’t since i often make slightly modified version of the same object so it fits better for that outfit. Plus when i rename the original object, the shortcuts break which is irritating.
