Is there an alternative to Open Collar ??

Recommended Posts

Now that the Open Collar Group have ditched the database is there any other collar around SL, not relying on the open collar script that will operate grid wide.  I found it extremely useful to force tp subs to me when out and about the grid and access their controls/constraints without actually being in the same sim as the sub.

Now that feature of Open Collar has been eliminated I am looking for an alternative,  but so many products seem to based on that now defunct Open Collar script.  Can anyone point me in the direction of an alternative

If you want something that works from device to device... It's expensive, but, check out the ToKon HUD.  Basically, the HUD holds your info sort of like a database and any devices you wear or interact with which are ToKon compatible will behave according to your settings without re-configging all the time. (^_^)

Otherwise, if you're out for something that's simply free and complete, look for Darien's big box of stuff.  It's a collection of  nearly all the items which were being sold by Dari's Haus and were set to public domain when the owner shut her store down. (^_^)y

You don't, of course, need any sort of grid-wide access simply to force-tp your subs to you; rlv does that, simply by setting "@accepttp:<your uuid>=add", which I'm pretty sure you can do with the OC RLV menu.

As to setting stuff from a distant sim, I couldn't swear to it, but I have an idea that you can that with Amethyst's collars.   It would certainly be worth asking in the Amethyst & Sensations group about it.    There's certainly a "remote" section of the Sensations website.

The forced TP seems to still work from other sims. I tried this earlier as a test. The only thing that doesn't seem to work is anything that required the database. Clothes are still removeable, forced animations still work, leash works.

Thanks for all your pointers.  Yes it appears that forced teleport can be done outside the hud menu, but it is mainly that you now have to be in sight of the other avatar to control them by using their collar, I am just no longer able to control them at a distance through my own collar.  fortunately that can be acheived with tokon and others as long as the slave is in the same sim as myself. It is now me just getting used to a new way of controlling them.

I've taken another look at the Remote features of the Sensations products, and, while the information is not as accessable as it might be -- you need to get a free Sensations hud and use it to register with their website to see it -- it certainly looks to me as if someone could use that to send commands to my Amethyst collar from a secure section of the website if I put their name there -- so you could be anywhere on the grid, or not even logged in at all.

As I said, I am not 100% certain how it works, but, to my mind, it would be worth at least asking in the in-world Amethyst group if anyone knows more about it.

Forced TP still works. We use this feature. I'm guessing that during the last update that your sub did not update her collar all the way. With the new update, the updater puts minimal scripts into the Open Collar. The wearer of the collar needs to select all the scripts/options on the update window in order to get back the features.

Yes, try the Amethyst Collars by Sensations. The Remote features are web enabled like OC was. Also try asking in the Amethyst & Sensations Products group. They are always helpful when asking questions.

I am owner of The Collar Gallery and i have my own script and not server related therefore if i were to go out of business the collars remain functional. My scripts run on only three scripts so there is not any lag Many of the server side collars for example the forced tp and other functions I do not have. My store carries hundreds of collars to choose from for all types of roleplay.  As with the Significance of the collar my collars have never been no transfer. 

 

I am celebrating six years now at my store that as of February 10th 2012 have grown to a full sim sized venue with many free gifts most of which I have created myself are distributed randomly to visitors.  Come check the store out

There are a lot of alternatives to OC that are out there, each have their pros and cons. I could suggest CTD (as I am the creator). CTD Collars and its scripts are minimal (9 active scripts, 2 passive), the collars are server driven and thus less lagged (0.004ms server time used). Forced TP for RLV users and most other RLV features, Unlimited Owners, Unlimited Pets (through the Owners Controller). Global Grid functions, 100% Menu driven, Remote Access. Web Control Access. Smart Device Access App Access. Customizable animations and Couple's Animations, etc, etc.

Has a lot of features and with the proven low lag can allow multiple collars in the same sim unlike many of the competitors.

Full Wiki,  Full Support, Full Forum, Blog, etc.

Check it out, if you don't like it don't buy it. Lowest price collar starts at L$99. All collars have the same features so the price you pay is for the fashion, not the scripting.
