I have had an interesting first full day playing with hifi. I managed to get a server running and can connect to it and do a few things. I have a million questions but I think I had best start with a couple of key ones:

@ctrlaltdavid Yep, I realized that a little while after my msg. Ty anyway. What confused me was the problem I posted on my last msg. I've been stuck with it since yesterday night. I really don't know what could it be.

How do I get the voxel building routines to work? I have tried to load default scripts, use the tab key, etc. but I can never get to where I can edit or create some boxes.
I have been jumping between various domains and I have found that avatar movement in one world is reflected in the others that I subsequently visit. Is this correct?

Hey @morrisford load "editvoxels.js" it should load with default scripts, the voxel tools appear on the left of the screen, click the little cube icon, then press key zero "0" and that should produce a 1mtr voxel in front of you, right click will remove it. And yes Your current position will be the position you arrive in any other domain if you just go to the domain.

I've been away for awhile but now I am back. Thought I would run the assignment client to get some credits. I do not get any assignments. Is the assignment client testing over or are the servers down or is everyone just running their own domain these days?

The credit system is offline while the currency is being developed

@Adrianl3d Thanks for the info. I do not find any tasks from worklist related to currency development, so I guess it is done in house. Is there any other information about the currency then the diagram from the docs.highfidelity.io. It probably is some sort of bitcoin derivate because of the terminology used in the code related to wallet things but...

@Adrianl3d Thanks for the info about voxel editing. It took a bit of flailing around but I finally got it to work. I went through a lot of different ways to get a script to run but finally found one that worked. I'm guessing that the routes to working scripts are still kind of all over the place. By the way, the method that worked was to show running scripts from the file menu and double click on the editvoxels.js entry that was not marked local.
It seems strange that the avatar location for a world is maintained in the interface instead of in the world. That makes for rather unpredictable reactions and the necessity to keep track manually of where the avatar is in every world visited.

@juandiana I've just done clean Windows release and debug builds, no problem. Perhaps you need to do a clean build, i.e., delete the build directory and do a cmake to regenerate the Visual Studio .sln file.
