Function: llSetScale( vector size );

Sets the size of the prim according to size

• vector size

The components of size (x, y & z) each need to be in the range [0.01, 64.0][1], if they are out of the range they are rounded to the nearest endpoint.


  • This function only changes the size of the prim that the script is in. Not the entire object.
  • If the prim is part of a link set, rescaling will fail if the new size is too large or small to satisfy the linkability rules.
  • Does not work on physical prims.

//A basic door that opens and closes when an avatar collides with it.
//Not very effective, as it would be better to use llSetStatus(STATUS_PHANTOM, 1)...
//But, it works.

          llSetScale(startingSize); //Go back to normal size
          llSetPos(llGetPos() - <0.0,0.0,10.0>); //And where we started
