Upcoming Stuff

Any Other Items

When we have time and because it refers somehow to the new parcell access rules. I'd like to have a function in LSL which at least can determine, if a specified person is able to enter a specified position on the sim, or is able to move along specified path (given by two points in local cordinates), i.e. is able to cross every parcell along the path.

The reason is when you build a vehicle or a physically working teleporter, you face a problem: Although you can read the parcell flags and determine for example if a parcell uses ban list, but you can't determine if any sat passenger is on the list or not. So you get false positives and refuse teleport even if the vehicle would cross the parcell. Now, even if you are ok with that, you have to perform a large number of such checks to be sure at no position of your path you are entering a parcell or cross an edge of a parcell using ban list.

So i'd like to know if such a function is resonable, that takes two vectors and determines if the path connecting them is safe for objects, actually seat and wearing avatars to move along. A reasonable range of systems would benefit of it. Jenna Felton 15:41, 15 September 2013 (PDT)
