Display Names Radar

From Second Life Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Here is a simple HUD type avatar radar that can show display names. This can be useful while some viewers support them and others do not.

It has a few commands you can use:

  • /44 range 42 will change the radar distance to 42 meters (maximum 96).
  • /44 interval 3 will change the scan poll to 3 seconds (minimum 1).
  • /44 scripts on will show script count and memory if the region supports it.

First you will need to create a suitable HUD object. Use this first script to do that. It will ask for link permission, grant it.

build script

/**************************************************
    This is the script that creates the radar object.
 
    1. Rez a cube and take it to your inventory.
    2. Drag the cube from your inventory back on to the ground.
    3. Go back to your inventory, this time ctrl+drag the same cube to inside the one you just rezzed.
    4. Edit the first cube, create a new script, paste in this code, and save.
    5. Touch to create the object.
    6. Edit the radar object again, create a new script, paste in the second script (the actual radar), and save.
    7. Take the result to your inventory, it should be ready.
 
    To use, attach it to your HUD. By default it expects to be worn on the bottom. If you want to
    wear it near the top of the screen, it will be good to flip the object 180 degrees.
 
    The text spacing could be too big or small, resize the object with the editor
    until it looks how you want.

            llRemoveInventory(llGetScriptName());
        }
    }
}

When the object is created, here is the radar script that will do the real work.

To use, attach it to your HUD. By default it expects to be worn on the bottom. If you want to wear it near the top of the screen, it will be good to flip the object 180 degrees.

The text spacing could be too big or small, resize the object with the editor until it looks how you want.
