**Note about video sound: I accidentally recorded the clip from my external speakers. The sound is much better when In-World.
If you are a builder in InWorldz, you know how difficult it can be to find an elevator that looks and feels like the real thing. After searching for hours and speaking with numerous scriptors, I decided it was next to impossible to find an elevator that worked like I wanted it to in InWorldz. Of course I found a few elevators that were somewhat decent, but usually you had to sit on them to make them work. Finally, instead of wasting more time searching, I decided to build my own.
I gathered some scripts together from open source and tried to make it work, but all my attempts failed. InWorldz does not have the same physics engine that Second Life has, so my projects kept glitching out. Finally, I decided to hire a scriptor named Wise Systems. With his help, we co-created an elevator that looks, feels, and acts like the real thing.
We made the elevator non-physical, which reduces lag. Also, as you are riding the elevator, a number display and a ‘ding’ alerts you to the floor you are passing. When you reach the appropriate floor, doors automatically open with realistic sounds.
I am soooo happy with my new elevator! I have placed four around my sim because they can be used independently of each other without cross talk or interference. I ride at least one of my elevators each time I visit my sim because they are so much fun! hahaha!
What can I say? I’m an elevator fanatic.
This is a demonstration video of a working elevator in InWorldz.
If you would like to ride the elevator or purchase one of these *full perm elevators for your own builds, please visit my store located at Winterwolf Estates.
