We’re introducing a change in the upcoming RC 72 release which relocates the origin used to place the avatar in a domain.
We’ve experienced a number of issues the past in which avatars would enter a new domain with their feet penetrating the floor. One of the reasons for this is that the origin used to place the avatar has been located at the hips. We’d place the avatar using the hip location and, as a result we’d have to calculate the location of the feet.
We’re moving that spawn point to the feet. That means that avatars should be correctly placed on the floor going forward.
But, we’re not updating exiting domains. What this means is that, for existing domains avatars will suddenly start arriving in domains a few feet off the ground.
We’ll provide more details shortly for owners who want to update their domains so that avatars show up correctly on the floor.
We hope this change won’t be too disruptive and eradicate what is currently a commonly-reported bug.
