Is there a way to make a couples walker work in a no rez zone?


Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is exclusively an animation problem, but since I'm unsure of where to put this, I'll put it here. Sorry in advance if it's in the wrong area!

I think that at some point, most of us have run into trouble with no rez parcels. Say you're in a lovely park, and you have a rezzable bike or horse or something like that, or maybe you're with a loved one and have a couples walker, but unfortunately there's no way to use any of these and there's no rezzers on the parcel. People have come up with all sorts of clever ways around this, like follow avatar scripts, but those tend to be buggy and out of sync in my experience, not to mention they can look a little strange. The follow avatar hud I have works, but it isn't perfect and I lag behind the target instead of staying firmly in place, and it doesn't affect the animations of the person I'm walking with, so I just sort of float behind them like a haunted doll. 😆

Ideally, I'd love to be able to put a seat in an attachment so other people can sit on it, but as far as I know this is currently impossible. I don't know if there's a way to contact Linden Labs with suggestions, but I feel like sittable attachments are something people have been wanting for a long time, along with flexi mesh. :)

If you have any suggestions or thoughts on this problem, I'd love to hear them! And maybe you want sittable attachments too. I wish there was a way around this problem, but as far as I know options are very limited.

i think the problems are very small... imagine the problems that start when it's open rezz at public places... it's not only the walkers or sitters, but also the griefers that will find that place very attractive. It will create the good old sandbox annoyances everywhere.

I wonder if the problems couldn't be addressed by limiting how long an object could be rezzed and not sat on (by two avatars?) to, for example, one minute.

time based griefer rezzers?.. auto return doesnt stop those.

one day maybe Linden will make it so that we can invite another person to attach to us. When so then worn scripts would be able to animate both avatars in complimentary ways. Either avatar be able to 'drive' (use movement controls)

In the meantime, there are plenty of rez zones in Bellissaria, the new Linden Homes continent, and plenty of places there to explore on foot as well as with a vehicle, so maybe if a couple want to take a stroll, they might start off their walk in one of those while we wait for other options to become available.

I suggested it over on Jira, but after a while it got closed due to it apparently being beyond Linden Labs' capabilities right now. :( Hopefully it won't be too long of a wait till something like that is possible.
