MLPV2 Give Item Add-on

From Second Life Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Add on tool for MLPV2 that puts a button on the MLPV2 menu that, when clicked, gives a user an object (or multiple objects) that you wish them to use with an animation. If you are giving multiple items, they are giving in succession one after the other -- that is, each is given separately, rather than all being given at once in a folder.

By Chaz Longstaff, June 2008.


LINKMSG TieMeUp | 1,-4,987789,Cuff1#Cuff2#Cuff3#Cuff4##Wear these four cuffs.

Steps to use:

  1. Copy and paste everything below the double-line on this page into a script called, for the sake of argument, "~give" (the script name is actually irrelevant; you may call it kumquat if you wish;)
  2. Drop the script into the prim where you have the rest of the MLPV2 scripts;
  3. Add the object that you wish to give out. Usually, it is either a prim object, or clothing. Note that this object to be given out needs to have both copy and transfer permissions set on it;
  4. Add to the menu in an MLPV2 menu notecard the following line:
LINKMSG MyButtonName | 1,-4,987789,NamesOfObjectToOffer##MsgToPerson

In the above line, there are three elements for you to customize:

  • MyButtonName -- the wording that you want to appear for the button on the blue menu
  • NamesOfObjectToOffer -- the name(s) (case and spacing sensitive) of the object(s) you are offering. If you are offering more than one, separate them with a hash mark (aka number sign, pound sign) # . Example: Item01#Item02#Item03 . If you are not offering more than one, don't use a # separator here.
  • MsgToPerson -- A message to be instant messaged to the person being offered the item, so they know what it is for, and don't think it's a random spammer or griefer passing by, etc.

Note that NamesOfObjectToOffer and MsgToPerson are separated by a ## separator (two hash marks.)

What you don't need to change in the above sample line:

  • 1 -- makes it so the MLPV2 menu doesn't reappear, so the user can see the accept-object menu
  • -4 -- the value of LINK_THIS, meaning, send this message to this prim only. (Use -2 if the ~give script is in a different prim.)
  • 987789 -- This is the number the ~give script looks for to detect a message to it.

<lsl> // Add-on by Chaz Longstff for MLPV2 by Lear Cale. June 2008. // Function: gives object to someone on an MLPV2 ball // MLP button: LINKMSG MyButtonName | 1,-4,987789,NamesOfObjectToOffer##MsgToPerson

// In a menu card, format a menu button like this, for example: // LINKMSG TieMeUp | 1,-4,987789,Cuff1#Cuff2#Cuff3#Cuff4##Wear these four cuffs. // In this example, TieMeUp is the button name // 1 means whether to make the MLPV2 menu go away or not. // Generally set it to 1 as per the example, as otherwise the user // might not see the accept prompt for the inventory being given. // -4 is the value of LINK_THIS, meaning, send this message to this prim only. // (Use -1 if the ~give script is in a different prim.) // 987789 -- don't change this, this is the link message number // Cuff1#Cuff2#Cuff3#Cuff4##Wear these four cuffs. // The items separated by # are the items to give, // followed by a message to be instant messaged to the recipient // of the object. It's good to include a msg, so that they don't think // it's a griefer trying to hand them something. Notice that the list // of objects to give and the accompanying msg, are separated by ##
