Two Avatars on single prim

From Second Life Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Ever wondered how to make two or more avatars to sit on single prim, to save prim amount on a furniture?

You need two kinds of scripts; the master (which calculates avatars sitting down and standing up) and a slave script for each additional avatar.

This is a modification of Pale Janus's script, originally posted here: OsGrid


DISCLAIMER:
    Do note, that in a linkset other child prims may move if you are not careful when setting this up.
    That means you have to tell the script how many prims is normal for your linkset and reset all scripts before testing.


Here are the basic scripts: modified for two avatars on single prim


MASTER SCRIPT:

//  NOTE:
//      An avatar counts as a child prim within a linkset, if you wish to move
//      it after it has sat down, you need to know what her prim number is and
//      use llSetLinkPrimitiveParamsFast to move her

    {
        animation = llGetInventoryName(INVENTORY_ANIMATION, 0);
 
//      do not remove the position offset of the sit target
        llSitTarget(<1.0, 1.0, 1.0>, llEuler2Rot(ZERO_VECTOR*DEG_TO_RAD));
 
        llSetSitText("Sit");
        llSetClickAction(CLICK_ACTION_SIT);
 
        lastnum       = llGetNumberOfPrims();
        originalprims = llGetNumberOfPrims();//  you can set this value to your unsitted object
 
        llSetCameraEyeOffset(<-1.0, 0.0, 1.0> * ZERO_ROTATION);

//          below is where all the magic happens
            if (num > originalprims)//  New avatar sitting down
            {

                    firstavatar = llGetLinkKey(firstnum);
 
                    llRequestPermissions(firstavatar, PERMISSION_TRIGGER_ANIMATION);
