  How to find objects nearby in the Firestorm viewer:  
     
           Firestorm menu --> World --> Area Search (for objects)  
     
     
  ----------  
     
  Some file locations.  
     
    location of "Settings.ini"  
        ...\DreamGrid\OutworldzFiles  
     
    location of "XYSettings.ini"  
        ...\DreamGrid\OutworldzFiles  
     
    location of "Opensim.ini"  
        ...\DreamGrid\OutworldzFiles\Opensim\bin\Regions\island_1  
     
  ----------  
     
  Setting a new complex object for others to "take copy" is a bit bugged.  
     
    One solution is to set the object up for sale, for $0.  
    Except this may leave the "(no copy)" property on the new user's item.  
     
    The other option is to check every item individually, and make sure that  
    they are all set to "copy" for all users as well. (this doesn't seem to work all the time)  
     
    The best solution appears to be, to create an empty box, then  
    place the full item inside of the empty box.  
    When the user picks up the box, they can then copy the box as often as they want,  
    and maybe even transfer the box to another.  
     
    The box will need to be set to "for sale" for G$0.  
    The "take copy" setting may still not work for the box.  
    The "(no copy)" may still effect the objects inside.
