I found an empty scripting link names smart scripting. It didn't seem very smart at all, being blank as it was - so I added words to entertain. https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Smart_Scripting Now, who can tell me how to script a motorcycle to behave in a power-slide / drifting fashion? And a bigger challenge - who can make a vehicle to act in a repeatable fashion? Open Sim seems to be much more difficult, and what works awesome in SL won't work there. And yes, I am teaching myself to script starting with a motorcycle instead of "hello world". Lydiash Ansome 01:00, 10 June 2012 (PDT)

This response is very disjointed, I apologize in advance. Vehicles are not my area of expertise but I think the important thing here is aesthetic. Science can only take you so far. That said, OpenSim uses a different physics engine, getting the same behavior out of both systems is going to be hard. To add to the complication, timing issues between the scripting and the physics engine make vehicles erratic. So you want to capture the idea of the power-slide & drift in your vehicle. To do this you will to play with vehicle banking and speed when you go in power-slide / drift. The best advice I can give is tinker with the script until you get it to where you like it. I was given an open source motorcycle shortly after joining SL, I remember modding it, it's still my favorite vehicle (low friction, fast as you can get a vehicle to go without pushing it, impossible to control). -- Strife (talk|contribs) 12:36, 10 June 2012 (PDT)
