The easy-to-use Sim-on-a-Stick distribution of OpenSim has been updated to the latest version, supporting Bullet physics, variable-sized regions, profiles and other improvements.

Sim-on-a-Stick is a packaged version of the Diva Distro. If you’re upgrading from a previous version, there are some settings changes you may need to make. Read all about it here.

    Is this software abandoned ? please let the public know if it is . as of now its several releases behind Osgrid. people are having trouble with oarfiles not being compatible & even losing everything after thinking it backed onto everything. when it has not.

    No future updates.can you look into it?

    Thanks,
    Lawrence

    The big risk isn’t the old OpenSim version. The last version I have was still using the defunct and unsupported MOWES system, I’d already updated the Diva Distro element a couple of times, but I urge everyone to find something else.

    Essentially, with no support for the supporting software, if you run this I can’t see any way of being sure your system is secure. If you can lock out external access with a firewall, you’re pretty unusual, and might be able to set up a more conventional OpenSim instance. There’s a good package, I know, for Linux, but I don’t know of anything that has the plug-in-and-go nature of Sim-on-a-Stick.

      Use the Outworldz installer by Fred then. It has more functions and capabilities then Soas does and is up to date with a choice of using .8.2.1 or the newer .9 version of Opensim.

        Thanks for the link.
        It is is Windows-only, so no use to me, but it does look good to fill the Sim-on-a-Stick niche.

        There’s a general tendency for search engines to keep putting horribly old software in front of you when you’re looking for a fix.
