  • FIXED Fixed an RLV bug with the @getattach command
    This bug caused querying the attachments at Center 2 to return no results instead of 0 or 1
    Running @getattach without any attachment spot was returning a partially wrong list: Center 2 was omitted, rendering the list of attachment spots short by one and returning wrong results for these attachment spots: center 2,top right,top,top left,center,bottom left,bottom,bottom right,neck,root
    This caused some RLV scripts to break

summary: FIRE-15101: Fix bottom toolbar buttons show in mouselook;

This fix reverts the initial fix for FIRE-5141 (e756e5e01e11) and replaces it
with a more specific one: The panel for the bottom toolbar buttons will always
stay visible regardless if it contains buttons or not, unless the whole toolbar
itself will be hidden (which happens for mouselook in case the UI should not be
shown). This means the nearby chat bar can be resized unless being in mouselook
and having UI in mouselook disabled.
