Block "PERMISSION_TAKE_CONTROLS" from attachment/sat on scripts?

Recommended Posts

By default, PERMISSION_TAKE_CONTROLS is granted automatically to attachments and items you sit on. Is it possible to prevent this?

A lot of chairs and sofas, and some attachments, take control of the CONTROL_UP and/or CONTROL_DOWN keys (PgUp/E, PgDown/C) for allowing on-the-fly adjustments, with the undesirable collateral of making the key-combination "Alt+E", "Alt+C" unavailable for camera control. Since more often than not the corresponding scripts are nomod and/or in items I do not own, I am searching for a possibility to block the autmatic granting of this permission.

It depends on the viewer you use. Firestorm Viewer has an option to block automatic permissions and clear permissions for sits.

Do you mean Preferences → Firestorm → Protection → Revoke Permissions? It is a good start, thanks!

Sadly, the more annoying cases involve attachments, so I hope there is more :(

Keyboard controls

By using your keyboard and mouse to control the camera, you can view nearly any object or avatar from any angle or distance.  

  • Alt + Left mouse button: Press and hold to zoom your view in when you move the mouse up or down. Orbits your view around the focal point when you move the mouse left or right.
  • Ctrl + Alt + Left mouse button: Press and hold to orbit your view around the focal point when you move the mouse in any direction.
  • Ctrl + Alt + Shift + Left mouse button: Press and hold to pan your view parallel to the plane of your screen.
  • Mouse scroll wheel: Zooms in or out.
  • Escape key: Resets your view to its default location behind your avatar.  Moving your avatar also resets your view.

From here.

Try it some time instead of purely keyboard related camera controls.

@Solar Legion Thanks for the pointers, I wasn't aware of the Ctrl+Alt, Ctrl+Alt+Shift versions.

I do however prefer keyboard based controls, and being suddenly deprived of them is frustrating. Seems like there isn't much of an alternative though :(

Not a problem. It's one of the things that used to be covered by new user orientation, sadly they stopped doing so a year or so after I joined.
