Notes

  • Mass in SL is expressed as lindogram. One lindogram appears to be equal to 100 kilograms.
  • Mass for avatars is relative to shape/size, and unaffected by attachments. However, a survey of masses for avatars shows less variation than one would expect relative to shape/size, and the lindogram masses do not appear in any way realistic.
  • Sitting avatars add their mass to the object.
  • This function returns a mass of 0.01 for child agents.
  • This function is a handy way to determine if an object or avatar still exists on a region. Other methods exist (such as checking that OBJECT_OWNER returned by llGetObjectDetails is a valid key), but this has slightly less overhead.
