yah, some smart people are needed


OpenSim is awesome and rocks my world (well, at least my virtual world) =)

the developers are incredible and uber talented, but they can only do so much. so if anyone is a braniac out there and knows vehicles, there is a need for lots of scripts. there are some good ones already, like the one in my hovercraft, but there is not the variety of scripts yet. part of that is scripting support within OpenSim and its physics and that is getting better and better

with time, physics will improve and for the meanwhile, goofs like me will just have to laugh and take it in stride. i can’t complain because i am pretty clueless on scripting. but i can laugh and i find my attempts to copy and paste other people’s scripts pretty amusing (nice way of saying i have a hard time just copying and pasting!) =)

and sim crossings? well, time heals all and so does a chuckle  =D

oops, silliness is misspelled! =p

  1. haha! I have had similar experiences. I am trying to find a helicopter style flight script. My adventures have been similar to yours. I do have one script that works well for a hover type vehicle but I can’t get it to fly. It does move on the ground pretty well though. I also have a sailboat one that works well. Flight seems to be the biggest challenge right now.

    I have tried straight physics flight but that just eventually results in being flung off the grid somewhere unexpectedly. The set_vehicle_type scripts just won’t seem to get off the ground. I am using a Diva distro for testing. If you want the ones I have your are welcome to them.

    Love your blog btw, stumbled across it while in my hunt for flight scripts.

  2. hi Synnr, let me pass a helicopter script i received from James Stallings II. i can’t get it to work but i am on a dev branch of OpenSim

    he is very good at scripting so i believe it works on “real” OpenSim deployments (should work on Diva i would think and a few others took part in this script as well)

    may i send it to your gmail address? =)
