  1. On the other hand, with all the rubber-necking from people who are morbidly interested in watching a train wreck of a thread, she's managed to attract nearly twice the thread views of any other thread in the forum. Exspiranced promoter indeed!
  2. I've been maintaining this script set for a while now, but just released a new version. This is Menu Helper, a script that does a number of things, like: Reads menu descriptions from notecards.Generates menus that multiple users can use at the same time.Handles nested menus and submenus automatically.Builds scrolling automatically if you have more than 12 items.Autogenerates menus from inventory or nearby people.Manages interactions involving both button dialogs and text boxes.Automatically hides options unless the user is the owner or is in the group.Uses declared local names to link up menus in interesting ways.Allows you to escape to choosing options and text in code when needed.Does all this with a simple link message protocol that doesn't mess with your main script.I mostly maintain this for my own use... but I'm happy to share. The scripts are offered with full perms and placed in the public domain. I'll answer questions in IMs as time allows. https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Menu-Helper/2821835

  4. Hi there! I'm looking for a live musician for an event on July 1st, for some or all of noon to 4pm SLT. It's an outdoor event with games, races, and fireworks... so I think something like folk music, bluegrass, country... but I'm open to suggestions! Anyone interested, please let me know (in-world IMs are preferred; my IMs don't cap, but a notecard is fine, too)
  5. Hope Harbor School is a school role-playing environment for child and teen avatars. We are looking for candidates for school principal and vice principal, with a salary of 2000 L$ / week (1000 L$ for assistant). The right candidate will: Be excited about and have considerable time and energy for promoting and building the role-play setting.Balance in-character interactions with students and staff and OOC hiring, promotion, etc.Have a positive view of role-playing with child avatars, and take role playing seriously.Have considerable experience in Second Life, with at least 6 months on the current avatar.Candidates should write a notecard explaining their background and interest in the position, and send it to Camille Yorcliffe. Please do not respond in forums, as I don't check here often. I am also willing to show anyone the school environment prior to deciding whether to apply. Thanks!
  6. Hey Loki. The problem is that you're using recursion... every time you call anim() without finishing the previous call, the system saves off where it was on the stack, and starts a new one. After a while, these saved off states on the stack cause it to get too large and collide with the heap. The solution is to use a loop instead: while (TRUE) { ... stuff you want to happen over and over ... }
  7. Lake Willowdale is more than a sim full of open water available for exporing, water sports, and other fun. All completely free, no ads, no demo versions: just a place to have fun and relax. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Willowdale%20Farms/125/39/22 * Explore the lake in a free canoe. * Go for a swim in the open water. * Sail on the lake with the high quality Nemo sailboat. * Zip around and race your friends on jet skis. * Grab free scuba gear and explore sunken ruins, shipwrecks, and underwater caves. * See the lake from above in a hot air balloon. * Make a splash with rope swings or dive from rocks. * Hang out in an abandoned smuggler's hideaway. * Go fishing with either 7 Seas or NeoRealms.
  8. Yeah, not really so much about my avatar; I wasn't doing that in-character and the picture was in a profile window, not in-world. But at some point one hopes that it would be possible to do some things from the office, or around family... not all of us sneak off, lock the doors, and close the window shades before logging in to SL!
  9. Is there a policy on nudity in profile pictures? I'm asking because I'm getting spammed by some network of objects advertising land all of a sudden, and in the course of muting the people responsible, I opened a profile and suddenly there's a picture of a nude woman on my screen. Ugh. I don't even have adult locations enabled in the viewer... but apparently people still post nude photos in plain view in their profile pictures?
  10. I'm really not sure how to react to the idea that people should change their social behavior to suit your business models. If people are at infohubs instead of your business, it's because for some reason they prefer to be there. Perhaps it's because they are too lazy to look for other locations and there's nothing you can do to get them to your business, but that's FINE. They have a right to be that way.
  11. Objects can't contain themselves indefinitely far in... so breedables all come from a centralized server somewhere that makes and sends out new ones... that server could be implemented as just scripts in a prim, but it can also involve servers outside of Second Life. The actual breedables all talk to that server to get "offspring" delivered.
  12. Hope Harbor School is a role-play school environment for child and teen avatars in SL, with around 4 years of history, nearly 200 members, and running over 30 classes or activities per week. If you know your way around SL and have an interesting idea for a class or activity, shoot an IM to Camille Yorcliffe and let me know. Our classes run the gamut from pure role-playing to games to useful SL or RL skills. Teaching in either voice or chat is fine. We appreciate (and pay) our teachers, and would love to add more thoughtful and creative individuals to our selective staff. Sound interesting? Contact me in-world, please, as I check forums occasionally at best! It will help if you have an idea that can be taught interactively in an engaging way. Or if you'd like to chat, learn more, and brainstorm with me... go for it!
  13. Interestingly, I think these places DO exist, but they are mostly popular in the family role-playing and child avatar communities. For example, check out Willowdale (Search for the sims Old Willowdale or New Willowdale or Willowdale Farms)... or Pleasantville, or Little Wonders or any of a bazillion other similar communities. My guess is that Willowdale is probably the least child avatar focused of these communities that I'm familiar with, but I don't know them all. These places have houses arranged in neighborhoods with roads, and community-supported activities and spaces to interact together. Outside of the child/family community, I rarely see big residential areas like this succeeding, though; everything gravitates toward the model of grids of plots separated by narrow ditches with a foot or so of water.
  14. Like role-playing around child avatars? Are you mature, responsible, reliable, and patient? Then we want you to teach or work at Hope Harbor School! HHS is a free role-play setting for child and teen avatars in SL. Teaching positions pay 200 to 500 L$ per class (classes are 45 minutes to an hour). We are seeking: - Substitute teachers! If you're around a lot but not constantly busy, be willing to jump in when you're free. - Sports/activity coaches! Have a favorite game, sport, or activity that you'd like to share? - Enrichment teachers! Want to teaching making clothes? Photography? Any other SL skill? - Core teachers! If you're purely in it for the teacher role-playing, this is for you. - Supervising! Are you excellent at help others have fun and avoid boredom? Try running lunch or recess! - Your Idea Here! Want to do something you don't see above? Then suggest it. IM or send a notecard to Camille Yorcliffe to express interest.

  17. We are now no longer looking for high school teachers. However, we are still hiring for substitute teaching, sports or activity coaches, and an assistant principal.
  18. Oh, I meant to mention that you can also fish (7 Seas), fence (En Garde) and play Zilch (aka, Greedy or Farkle), among others. So find your favorite classic SL games here, as well.
  19. Hey everyone! Just wanted to mention I've been making a lot of classical playground games and sports at Hope Harbor School's playground. It's not just limited to people in the role-playing setting, either: anyone is welcome to come play here or grab some of the objects that you can play with anywhere! And there's never a charge to play (well, except for 7 Seas... because that one isn't up to me) Here are some of the games and activities I've built uniquely for this playground: Half-Court Basketball: Pass the ball around and shoot hoops, play Horse, and more on our outdoor basketball half-court.Slapjack: A simple but exciting children's card game that tests your reflexes as everyone tries to be the first to slap the jacks (sometimes known as Snap in the UK).Egyptian War (Ratscrew): A less widely known game, but a cult classic in many U.S. high schools, this game combines the rules of the centuries-old game "Beggar My Neighbor" with the reflexes of Slapjack.Tetherball: A common playground game. A ball hangs from a rope, and the goal is to hit the ball in such a way as to wrap the rope around the pole in your direction.Frisbees: Throw and catch frisbees with your friends. A relaxing low-pressure game.Baseball: Grab a ball, a glove, and a bat. You can play catch, bat the ball around, or even play a full game (stadium and scoreboard not included, so you'll have to keep track of your own scores!)Soccer: A working soccer field, including a game timer, scoreboard, and ball.The activities here are the product of an immense amount of scripting, animation, and building but several people, all offered for your free enjoyment. Hope you have fun!

  21. Willowdale, est. 2008, is the oldest family-themed role-playing town in SL, and offers family homes at a variety of sizes to fit any family and budget.

You're not just getting land; you're getting neighbors and a place in a long-standing community. Plenty of Space and Prims.

The main residential sims have 2x prim bonuses, too, so you can make your home look great without having to sit on a sim all by yourself. Homes for Any Price Range. If you don't need a lot, though, check out our rentals for homes starting at 500 L$ / week, for a house plus 200 prims.

  22. I've added two more things: A very realistic snowball thrower, that I built to get around the annoying bits of most other snowball systems... there's a 5 second delay between throws so people don't get pelted relentlessly, and the particle effects and sounds are far more realistic. Frisbees that can be thrown and caught by any number of players, letting you play any number of different frisbee games like five hundred, frisbee soccer, etc. Both are my own creations, and you can grab them from the givers here and use them anywhere in SL that allows scripts and rezzing.
  23. Extra, extra! New games at Hope Harbor playground! Hey everybody! Just lettin' ya know that I updated the playground at Hope Harbor School in the community of Willowdale, a role-playing area for families and child avatars, to add a bunch of playable games, some of which I scripted and built exclusively for this area. Although this is a light role-playing area for child avatars, the playground is completely open to anyone that likes games, whatever your avatar's size or appearance (within reason... please no nudity and such, of course, blah, blah, standard disclaimers...). The playground features: Basketball hoops for horsing around with friends.Huge soccer field that rezzes balls, and keeps time and score, and is usable by anyone 24 hours / day.

Sure, you're adding an offset to the current position.... just multiply that offset by the current rotation, like so: llRezObject(..., llGetPos() + <xOffset, yOffset, zOffset> * llGetRot(), ...); You probably also want to pass the result of llGetRot() for the new rotation as well.
