Why won't my color changing shoes work anymore?

Question

  • 0

If you have been away from SL for a while you'll probably want to buy new shoes anyway.  A littl e over a year ago, Linden Lab broke the old Invisiprim hack that used to be used to hide our ugly SL heels when we wear heeled shoes.  Alpha clothing layers now do a much better job of it now, and the Invisiprims in your old shoes no longer hide your feet.  Anyone using Advanced Lighting and Shadows will see your ugly feet unless you are wearing the alpha layers that come with new shoes.

Now... it's hard to say why your color changing scripts are not working, but there's a good chance that they are also using old scripting technology --- several scripts in separate prims in various parts of the shoes.  Modern shoes will contain one script per shoe to do the entire job, this reducing your personal script load and making life a little easier for the sim's servers.  If your scripts are not working anyway, it's another sign that you need to start replacing them.  There's one faint hope --- If you have mod perms on the shoes, you should be able to restart all of their scripts.  Right click a shoe to select it with Edit.  Then select Scripts >>> Reset Scripts from your Build menu.  Unless the scripts are actually damaged, restarting them should make them work again.
