Json multi sit array

From Second Life Wiki

Introduction

With the new Json support, we can now have forms of arrays instead of single line lists. For this example I have written a Json Object based array for storing keys and positions of sitting avatars on a child prim. This object allows you to sit multiple avatars on a child prim however, it won't work on an object like a vehicle that requires a root key to drive the object. For that I'd recommend using llLinkSitTarget from the root and assigning an offset to the passenger seats.

Usage

To use this script just create a new script in the child prim that will be used as the primary seat for people and drop the code from below into it. This script will keep track of what avatar is sitting where and will assign an avatar to the next empty seat accordingly.

The Code

This script utilizes the new Json array object to store multiple keys to arrays with its position offset and twist on the z axis. It is for demonstration purposes and can be used in whatever product you want :) please share this page for learning and enjoy.

    list avatarCheck;list sittingAvis;

    integer newAviFlag=FALSE;
    //get current avatars on seat
    for (;i--;)
    {
        if(llGetAgentSize(llGetLinkKey(i+1)) != ZERO_VECTOR)
        {avatarCheck += [llGetLinkKey(i+1)];}
    }
    //llOwnerSay("Current Avatars: "+llList2CSV(avatarCheck));
    //run garbage cleaning loop to dump dead keys
    //and store the existing ones for checking
    for(i=6;i--;)
    {
        avi=llJsonGetValue(SEATS_data,["seat"+(string)i,"key"]);
