OpenSim world map tiles only load on click

Hi there, Henri.
I've found that regions in some OpenSim grids only load their respective world map tiles after I click on or search for them. I tested this on OSGrid, Mobius Grid and 3rd Rock Grid - only the last works normally, as these linked screenshots show:

Mobius Grid
3rd Rock Grid

To be thorough, I also checked the grids in Singularity and Alchemy, and there were no issues.

However, this might not just be a Cool VL Viewer problem. Seems that 3RG runs on OpenSim v0.8, while OSGrid and Mobius are on dev branch v0.9 - which was first released late last year, and the map bug started happening around then. Coincidence or not, I don't have the skills to look into it further, so hopefully you can figure it out.

No bug there, but indeed another undocumented peculiarities of OpenSim grids: their sim coordinates go beyond the normal range found in SL and therefore require an adapted code.

I backported Singularity's changes to the world map block fetches for the next Cool VL Viewer releases...

I have the same problem. Great to see a solution will come and I can start using my favourite viewer again :) My guess is that the same thing also caused the TP problems I had using Cool VL viewer, newer versions
"edited" unfortunately tp in osgrid is still not going well and in addition I now notice that also the centre titel gets awfull behind in showing the parcel one is on. Sometimes it takes many minutes before it updates to the right parcel.luckily it does show right when I open "About land".
Also VAR regions only show the left-down-corner-region and not the total var in worldmap.
I will try using cool viewer in a few months again as it still remains my favourite layout (UI)viewer. I hope it gets back to its old great working again. Keep up the good work.
