Moving Second Life Objects to Opensim

At present anyone can take OpenVCE 3D Assets and other Second Life large and multi-part builds over from a BUILT version in Second Life to Opensim via Second Inventory.  The OpenVCE release box and its unpack mechanism cannot be taken over directly via that route.  It will take a few days work to restore the packaging mechanism using slightly modified scripts in Opensim.  All things we plan to do when we have time.

For now, route is:

  1. Build in SL.
  2. Choose one part as a core item.
  3. Note or change part names (some may have component names that are not helpful) , relative locations and rotations for each part (unfortunately some may be rotated with respect to one another and at arbitrary offsets).   [Note that for the OpenVCE 3D Assets, the team we will be improving part names, removing relative rotations and adjusting the root prims to be on a very simple whole meter grid at some stage]
  4. Move into Second Inventory. 
  5. Transfer to Opensim.
  6. Rez chosen core item and set it to a simple whole meter location with zero rotation.
  7. Rez all other parts and move them to their original relative locations and rotations.

Second Life Meeting Attendance Procedures

(Don't wait until 10 minutes before the meeting to test this)

Step 1: You'll need to have a Second Life account (which is free) and a Second Life viewer (basically a 3D Web Browser) to attend the conference inside of a virtual world environment.  If you already have both of these, skip to step 5.

Step 2: Signup for a Second Life account at:

  • (NOTE: You are limited to the last names that are available.  If you want to use your real name, we suggest using upper and lower case to put in both your first and last name and then selecting from one of the available last names: i.e. Jane Doe could select an avatar name like JaneDoe Solo)

Step 3: Download a Second Life viewer at:

Step 4: Install the Second Life viewer you just downloaded.

Step 5: Suggest looking at the Second Life Quick Start :

Step 6: Teleport to the virtual meeting by clicking on the event link normally given to launch Second Life with that location preset, e.g.

Step 7: When the Second Life viewer launches, type in your avatar's first name, last name. and password that you selected when you created your avatar.  Leave the location to the preset one for the IRMC Info Leader. Click on the LOG IN button to start.

Step 8: Ensure that your computer volume is turned on.  If you intend to speak at the conference, you should use a microphone to avoid audio feedback.

Step 9: Once you arrive, you'll want to play media on parcel by clicking on the video play button.  It's a triangle next to a film camera icon on the bottom right of your Second Life viewer.
