//Name: Simple Texture Changer (input list)(multiple prims & multiple side).lsl
//Purpose: To change the texture on certain prims on certain sides of a linked set.
//Technical Overview: The script finds how many textures there are in the input list, and uses a timer to change the
//                    texture on a side based on randomness or order. It changes all sides of the certain prim to the
//                    specified texture
//Description: A simple texture changer script that changes the texture on certain sides of certain prims in a linked
// 			   set to those in the input list. It allows for a random order, or a logical "next up" order.
//Directions: Create a prim. Place the script in prim inventory. Modify the script parameters to suit your needs and
//            save.

//Compatible: Mono & LSL compatible
//Other items required: None.
//Notes: Uses a timer event. Should be low lag. Commented for easier following.

//"prim number, side number, side number...side number"
//-1 equals all sides for that prim

    "1,3,4,1"];//put in which sides you want the texture to be changed on.
