1.19 script update

Posted in Features, News on August 18, 2009 by Nibb Tardis

I have been very busy over the last couple of days rolling out the latest script update for all primOptic eyewear. Actually, there were two updates. A small bug in version 1.18 prompted me to make 1.19 faster than I planned, so here it is. Version 1.19 introduces the following features:

  • New update server: from version 1.18, updates are sent automatically when you wear the glasses or log in with them.
  • New Adjust menu: you can now adjust the size and position of the glasses on your head through the menu.
  • The Help button now opens the online version of the instructions.

Now for the cool part: all updates for primOptic eyewear products are free, even if you still have an old 1.5 version. If you are one the lucky few to have version 1.18, just wear your glasses and you will get version 1.19 automatically. If not, then follow these steps:

  1. Go the the primOptic main shop and get the free updater script.
  2. Wear your glasses or rez them on the ground.
  3. Right-click the glasses, click Edit, and then click the Contents tab.
  4. Copy the primOptic updater script into the glasses.

Once you have received the update, delete the old glasses. If you have any problems with the update script, just send me an IM and we’ll sort it out…


Sunglasses are a girl’s best friend

bijou_blogWho cares if they are real diamonds, strass or just tiny prims, these are the new primOptic bijou glasses because every starlette needs a glamourous pair of precious-stone-studded sunglasses.

Of course, as with all primOptic glasses, you can enable and disable bling and change the frame and lense colours. My opinion is that these work best in bright candy colours for the ultimate girly look.

I hope you enjoy wearing them as much as I enjoyed making them.

adria_blogWho exactly was the girl sitting on that shaded bench in the park? Was she waiting for a friend or for a lover or was she just lost in her thoughts? I didn’t dare to speak to her but I will never forget her eyes…

Introducing primOptic adria glasses.

O-band upgrade

Posted in Features, News on August 7, 2009 by Nibb Tardis

One of my all-time most popular men’s shades has been the o-band model. They were designed for the fashion-conscious sportsman, ideal for those who spend lots of time outside in the hot sun. However, for some obscure reason, the tiny prims that were used to make the single-piece lens never worked correctly with the latest low-lag colour changing script, leaving the o-band stuck with old versions of the menu scripts.

pub2_o-bandWell, o-band owners, rejoice! I have finally got around updating your favorite sunglasses with a special version of the latest script. You can now enjoy all the latest features of the primOptic eyewear range: custom colors, textures and the teleport history feature.

To upgrade your primoptic o-band glasses to version 1.17, shoot off an IM in my general direction.

Updates broken

Posted in News with tags , , , on August 4, 2009 by Nibb Tardis

Let’s start with some bad news. After nearly 3 years of loyal service and extreme precaution, the in-world update server for all primOptic products was accidentally returned and lost its UUID. This means that the Update button on all primOptic products will no longer work.

The good news is that I’m working on a new system for product updates, which should be much more robust. In the meantime, the latest version for all primOptic glasses is 1.17. If you have an earlier version, please contact me and I’ll send you a free update.

Incidentally, the gift certificate server is also broken. Therefore, if you have any unredeemed primOptic gift certificates, send them back to me and I will happiliy replace them with new ones. New gift certificates are not affected.
