An uneasy walk at OpenSim Ciuso

After upgrading to OpenSim 0.5, something isn't quite right at my OpenSim island Ciuso. It seems the avatar thinks it should walk at an altitude of 20 meters, when in reality the terrain is at 21 meters. When the avatar moves, it seems to wade through the grass, and when not moving, it's looking distinctly uncomfortable.

Notice that when I move under the see, the terrain sinks to lower altitudes and the avatar seems to be content with that.

Next up.. investigation into terrain heights in OpenSim :-)

Don't know exactly what the problem is or how to fix it. I am curious as to what client you are using, i like that theme for it.

Tristan,
It's the Dazzle theme for the SL client. It's a preview of what a next SL client might look like. It was developing quite nicely, but it has been a bit quiet around Dazzle for some time now.

If you want to run Dazzle, you have to download a zip file and manually replace some files in your installation.
