A way to sit on attached prim?

Question

I've searched around and seen a few posts on the internet regarding sitting on attached prims on an avatar. Is there a way to do so now without the need of a vehicle for someone to sit on an avatar? I made a macro avatar and it would be pretty cool imo for people to sit on me. Examples: shoulders, head, or tail. I seen someone sitting on someone else's shoulder before a few months back  (I regret to this day not asking him what he is using or how) and is there a product or a script that is around that I could use for this to happen, if so be so kind to tell me? I'd appreciate it guys.

You may be able to find a couples animation or couples AO that allows this. I know there are couples AO's that allow carrying in various ways, so I'd look around and see if there's one for sitting on the shoulder. Good luck!

You can't do that.  There's no way to sit on an attachment. You can both sit on the same object and you can control the object to make it move, however.  Some of those systems are very convincing.

You can't sit on an attached prim.

The "shoulder sitter" is a two person animation, like a hugger attachment. The second person isn't really sitting on you, though they act like it until the animation is released.

All the saddles and the like I have seen for dragon and centaur and horse and wolf  avatars that allow someone else to ride your avatar are a vehicle script, with custom animations for the avatar type. So you would need to make a vehicle that has sit poses on the various riding spits, plus an atachment point for you to sit on first. That vehicle would have to animate your avatar the same way you do for normal movement when walking, running, flying or swimming. Once you sit on the vehicle, your friends could then sit on your shoulders and the base of your tail or on top of your head, and ride along.

A worn item can, however, be scripted to produce a vehicle that you can easily sit on to effect this change. So you could have a chat command or a HUD that could spawn the vehicle for you as needed.

One of my wolf avatars has a choice of two 'saddles'. One has the wolf in control of movement, and with the other, the wolf's rider can control where the wolf and rider go.

There are generic vehicle scripts in many script libraries, but virtually any specific vehicle that you create needs to have a script that is customized to that vehicle.  If you are new to writing this sort of script, you should find the Linden Vehicle Tutorial helpful.  If you are not a scripter yourself, you may post in the InWorld Employment forum to attract the attention of a scripter to write something for you.
