A group of Second Life avatarsThe core of any API (application programming interface) is a set of runtime-guarantees. Lately, I’ve been asked a fair bit about LSL’s llSetTimerEvent() API function and its interaction with the new region-idling model, where regions are shoved down to less frequent updates when not in certain kinds of active use.

Obviously that’s going to have some sort of effect on timers, but does it break llSetTimerEvent()’s runtime guarantees? No, it doesn’t.
