Help with cloning a sim
#1
One of my favorite sims are shutting down, and instead of losing it completely when it does shutdown, I was wondering if there was a script or something similar that can run in DS to copy the sim.
Preferrably in a way i can just swap it to opensim or equivalents. It would make for a nice piece of memorabilia of the place

LOL you sure are  trying to  play it safe   
only  3 posts from you  since you  joined 2.4 years ago   this one 
and  2 on a thread you  did titled Trying to play it safe
This is one of the reasons I now rarely post on here  these days too many people  like you putting nothing into this forum

If you had been more active I may have done it for you

There is a button on Darkstorm that saves the contents of a sim, but I tried it, and it really only works for prim and sculpted things, if anything is mesh it wont re-upload properly. And as a lot of stuff is mesh these days it's not as great as it sounds. Also you won't get the terrain textures or terraforming shape of the sim at all.

The only other way is to save the .oar file of the sim. And I don't think SL do that. If you can get them to save the .oar though, it will load absolutely everything including al the prims, mesh, their locations, the terrain textures and shape. The limitations on that though are quite a few too. .oar will only save things that belong to the person who owns the sim. And possibly only things that have correct permissions. It's much easier to do it in opensim, as most grids will give you your .oar file if you request it, some for a cost, and some for free.
