Scripted Attachment Dectector.lsl - Linden Scripting Language (LSL) Version 1.0.2


This script will show up to 16 scripted avatars within the sensor's reach and display their name in hovertext. You may also touch the prim to get a list of the scripted avatars. It can also show their distances. It will reset when rezzed, worn, or transferred to a new owner. It is LSL & Mono compatible.

Please note: It does not show its owner, whether or not they are scripted.

It was written in LSLEditor.



If you modify/improve upon the script, please add your name here.

  • To display a hovertext of which avatars are scripted.


Create a prim. Drop this script in. Modify the global user variables. Compile in mono. Attach of leave as rezzed prim. Enjoy.=D

//Name: Scripted Attachment Detector.lsl
//Purpose: To show scripted avatars within the sensor's radius
//Technical Overview: Uses a sensor and exclusion list.
//Description: This script will shows scripted avatars within the sensor's reach and display their name in hovertext.
//             You may also touch the prim to get a list of the avatars. It can also show their distances. It will
//             reset when rezzed, or first worn.
//Directions: Create a prim. Place this script in the prim. Modify the parameters as needed. Save the script. Enjoy.
//Compatible: Mono & LSL compatible
//Other items required:
//Notes: Uses a sensorrepeat. This will cover up to 16 avatars that are in range.

//global user variables, you may change these

float hoveralpha = 1.0;//alpha of hovertext, 1 for solid, or 0 to not show hovertext

float interval = 30.0;//how often to scan for in seconds 

integer showdistance = TRUE;//TRUE/FALSE whether to show the distance of the avatar next to their name
//example: Billy Joe (4m)

//exclude list
// CaSe does *NOT* matter, but spelling counts!
