I get in-world very rarely these days. The knock-on effect of this, is that I am not in the best position to keep these scripts updated. Please message me in-world (forwarded to email) if you discover any bugs (that can't be simply fixed), and I'll do my best to find a solution.

My Contributions

If unsure about how to use these scripts

I have implemented a version number system to make it more obvious if a script is updated. The V# is a comment at the top of each script.

If you have any comments about the content of this page please post them HERE

All my scripts are written for compilation as MONO

What's my Build?

A simple but fun game for groups to play. Players take turns building their interpretation of a suggested word or phrase, then the other players make guesses in local chat until one is correct. The player who correctly guesses what is being built becomes the new builder and the game continues.

  • Up to 9 notecards containing lists of words or phrases can be added.
  • Each time a notecard is chosen, the order in which the words will be used is randomized.
    • One word or phrase per line. Single lines should not exceed 255 bytes.
    • No empty lines.
    • Add alternative spellings (i.e. "colour" and "color") or meanings (i.e. "truck", "lorry" and "van") together on the same line, separated by pipes (this is a pipe --> "|").
    • Punctuation listed in the script will be stripped from the words and phrases.
      • Unfortunately, LSL has no RegEx and as such it is impractical to except alternatives that aren't explicitly added to the cards. An LSL parser capable of regex like deduction would be horrible, so without utilising a remote server (a possible update), the alternatives need to cover everything reasonable to expect. There is an option for the owner to be told the word or phrase being built (after which they will be excluded from that round), and it's recommended if the script is reading from a card containing potentially contentious phrases with many possible alternatives.
    • Apostrophes are also stripped.
  • Menu operated from touch.
