1st necessity of SL

From Second Life Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Ever since I noticed that many sims contain 1000's of wonderful objects with fancy effects and 1000's active scripts that use valuable simresources while no-one is around to enjoy it, I wanted to script something simple to offload those resources and give the visitor a better experience.

That's why I made this little script: '1st necessity of SL' that could and should be used in any project that doesn't need to be active all the time.

We are building a better place, together :)

// Improve SecondLife's performance!
// Start with your own(ned) modifyable scripts/objects.
//
// This will disable your rootprim's script(s) when no-one is around to use/admire it
// thus stop wasting valuable sim-resources
// 
// Measured script time is 0.002 ms on average. 
//
// - don't use it for rental stuff or sorts, not everything is suitable -
//
// Free to use, please use it. Improvements are welcome.
// // Thank you Norton Burns for the testing and feedback :)
