Intra-Region Update Server by Emma Nowhere

This set of scripts allows you to centrally update objects such as Freeview screens or teleport pads within a region that are configured by notecards or contain modifiable objects or media assets.

Place the UpdateServer script inside a prim along with the objects (notecards, etc.) that you want to broadcast as updates to objects containing the UpdateSubscriber script.

To broadcast an update from the server, click on the server prim, and then click on the "Broadcast" button in the dialog. The "Info" button displays the server's object key and listening channel as well as a list of all registered subscribers. The "Purge" button removes all contents from the prim so you can drag new updates objects onto it.

Place the UpdateSubscriber script inside any prims that you want to receive object updates from an UpdateServer. You can have as many prims as you want subscribed to an UpdateServer, for example, all the teleport pads in your region. You should have your UpdateServer already set up before adding this script to a prim. At startup the script will broadcast a request for all UpdateServers in the region and output the results to you.

You need to register the subscriber with a specific UpdateServer to enable updates to be received. To do this, type:

/128 UpdateSubscriberRegister subscriberkey serverkey

where subscriberkey is the key of the prim containing the script and serverkey is the key shown next to the UpdateServer name that is displayed when this script displays the available UpdateServers in the region. The UpdateSubscriber script will output exact text that you can copy and past into your chat line to do this.

To send updates to group-owned objects, both the server and subscriber must belong to the same group (share and deed to group) and you must make your group active for your avatar (so that your group tag is visible).

Note to Sellers!

Please give some attribution if you use these scripts. Thanks!
