Just logged into SecondLife after many year absence. Dropped into an RPG I used to play there, which is facilitated by a scripted combat meter which hovers above everyone's head tracking their stats, complex enough to almost be a game engine. Originally I was invited to test the security of the system, then the owners flipped out at me when I found things, so I went public and the game was HAX EVERYWHERE for a while. It did not end well for anyone. Except me, who got lulz until they figured out how to permaban. (The combat meter was also responsible for bans, so for a while I would just regularly ban the owner from the game which in SecondLife catapults you violently from the game world and looks awesome.
Today I returned and just lurked in one of the game environments. The owner came around the corner and walked past me. Then came back and stopped for a minute and clearly went away to look up my character in the database.
My chat window opens: ARE YOU LEVEL TWO FUCKING BILLION?
AWW YISS I AM.
For those of you who don't frequent SecondLife RPGs, this means I could kill everyone currently logged in without really touching any keys. I accidentally killed a few people while we were standing there chatting. Many lulz were had as I explained how to fix the exploit, which I found about ten minutes after returning to the game in the web page they use to set up characters.
Was a good evening.
