Who's Been Sleeping In My Bed?

Question

  • 0

If you have the bed script set to ALL then anyone can use it.  Usage is Owner, Group, or All on most SL scripted items.  Those are the settings.  Alternatives: put a security orb around the bedroom limiting access to users you list on the orb, take the bed back to inventory so when you are on you rez it and use it, set the bed to Owner only so you can still enjoy company but you will be the only one in control with the partner of your choice.

Rhein, thank you for your reply and information. These are all good solutions.

I am still interested in knowing if there is a menu option or device allowing me to see who has accessed the bed menu without using any of the restrictions you mentioned. I know that ignorance is generally bliss, and in the end it may be what I opt for.

For now, having already walked in on someone, I still would like to try and see if anyone accessed the bed menu in my absence. I don't want to keep reminding friends who have never used the bed, and I do want to keep reminding any who do. Maybe I'll get over it, that's how I feel for right now.

Again, thank you Rhein and thanks in advance to anyone else who responds.

You could modify the scripts in the bed to notify you (or maintain a list) of everyone that uses the menu, but the bed will definitely need to be modify, you'll need to know a bit about scripting or hire a scripter to do it.  From what little I know about scripting, I do not think there is any way for an object to know that another object is being used.

 

Another option - before you leave home or log out, use the menu options to put the bed back to Owner or Group mode.  It is easy enough to change it to Anyone when you are entertaining and then revert it back again when you are done entertaining.

LittleMe, thank you for your reply. A script modification is the sort of thing I am looking for. I will check out this avenue.

And I agree with your second suggestion, unfortunately I have tried and already forgotten to change it back once. Let me paint you a picture:

"OK grab the menu"

"I can't"

Damn, let me fix it"

"Still not working"

"OK let me stop the bed and try"

"Still no"

"OK let me try a reset"

 

"Sooooooooooooooooooo, you get your car fixed?"

 

"Yeah cost me $500"

"Ouch"

 

"So there's a party at Steam Engine now..."

"Oh yeah I love that club"

 

"You wanna go dance?, we can always come back"

"Yeah, sounds good"

"OK, meet you there"

"OK"

 

Sure, it's not a tragedy, just something I rather not repeat. I do have a message in to the bed designer, just thought I'd ask here for help as well. And again, this may all be a passing whim of mine, so I really appreciate any response I get.

Thanks again LittleMe.

Seems to me a simple visitor counter script in one of the pose balls would do the trick.  Something that logs name and time of visit and is only triggered when a person sits on the pose ball.  I wouldn't think it would interfere with the other scripts running the bed.

Cinn, thank you for your reply. That is exactly the sort of idea looking for, some sort of visitor counter for either the poseballs or, somehow, the bed, I just didn't know it!

Now to track such a script down and figure out the mechanics of inserrting it. I'll keep working on it.

Thank you again Cinn.

I had a bed in my home, no animations in it. I allowed group members to use my home as a landing spot in SL. I logged in one evening to find one of these so called friends using a hud of their own for sex on my bed. The female was apparently running an escort service out of my home. Booted her from the group, then sim banned her. The next day, she asked me why. I sent her the pic I had taken the night before   She got it then.

If you don't want people using your bed, take it back into inventory when not using it.

Sue, thank you for your reply. Sorry to hear you got taken advantage of by a so-called friend, but your response to it did make me grin!

I agree taking the bed up is the only absolute effective solution. I am still interested in at least trying another one if I can. I guess I'm just lazy.

Thank you again Sue.

Now that I think about it, maybe just a script to make the bed invisible or to sink it into the ground.  I have a beautiful bear rug in my living room by the fireplace, but I don't think it fits the decor for casual times with friends.  I modified the menu to give me an option for it to go invisible.  I get it back by clickin on that same spot, cuz that is where it really is, and selecting the menu option to become visible again.

If you are interested, I'll send you the script/menu mods when I get inworld -- though that won't be for a few hours yet as I am about to head out for some RL evening activities.

Hmmm yes there are visitor scanners that records the arrival of visitor place one behind your bed. Your other option is to seriously modify your bed script a costly and possible difficult task. Frankly this thread is a bit over board for me so I'm going to let it go.
