OpenSim commands

You can type commands into the OpenSim window. It can be a bit daunting if you are not used to 'command line' applications, and although there is a possibility that you might completely wipe everything that you've made, the chances of doing it by accident are very slim (hint: avoid any commands that include the word 'delete').

To list the available commands type: help
To create a flat terrain (taken from Roger Stack) type: terrain fill 21
If you're tired of being Test User type: create user firstname lastname
When you're finished and want to shut down type: quit

Note that permissions are ignored by default, so even if you login as a different avatar you will still be able to modify everything that's there. You won't have access to the other avatar's inventory though - unless you feel brave and use the IAR system to transfer it.

Did you ever get your Opensim bot running?
Would you be willing to post the code?

Only the very basic one, and I've since changed computers and lost the source. Maybe something to revisit.

We haven't had any need for characters yet. Having a dialogue with the simulation (settings tasks, providing feedback etc.) has sufficed so far.
