Working Elevator in InWorldz

**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.

Here’s your ride:

AMAZING TOOLS FOR BUILDERS

Image

This is mainly for builders in InWorldz, although I’m sure there are comparable products in Second Life as well.

One of my major issues with using sculpties has been the cumbersome task of sorting and naming them. Many times, the sculpt maps I’ve purchased will be named something like “Sculpt01” or “handle12”.  It becomes a daunting task to rez every single sculpty to find the one you need.  This is especially difficult if you own more than a few hundred sculpt maps. Additionally, I have double purchased sculpt maps because I could not find what I needed when I needed it. Well…this problem shall exist no longer!

There is a solution and it’s called : zTech Sculpty Sorter

This amazing gadget allows you to put your sculpt maps into buttons (much like on a texture organizer) and the sorter will rez 25 sculpts at once in a small designated grid.  To search quickly through your sculpts, all you have to do is press an arrow button and all 25 sculpts will be changed.  When you find the one you want, you have 2 choices. you click on it and the machine will rez the sculpt for you with you as creator if you put your own prim into the gadget.  Or, you can have it deliver the sculpt map to you.  This tool is simply AMAZING!!!!   No more wasting time or purchasing the same sculpt repeatedly because you don’t have time to rez all your sculpts to see what they look like.  This gadget does all of that for you!   For builders, this is a must.

Where can you find it?  Well, in InWolrdz you can find it here:

http://places.inworldz.com/Isla%20Draconia/77/117/1352

How much does it cost?  IT’S ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!!    Also, as far as I can tell, it’s low lag. I’ve had no problem with sim performance since I rezzed it weeks ago.

 

The creator, Zauber Paracelsus, also has other free tools for “sale” in his vendor that are simply amazing.  By following this link, you can find the aformentioned tools for building and an AO for your avatar.  Here’s a complete list of his free products:

-zTech Texture Sorter  (sorts textures)

-Lite Rezzer  (A scene rezzer that can be used in a holodeck or however you like)

-Easy Door system  (scripts for making doors that work)

-Swift AO  (Animation Override -Low lag and works with Zhao)

-and of course  ZTech Scultpy Sorter

 

Builders, these tools are a must!  Go get your gadgets today! You will be happy you did.

 

*I am in no way affiliated with zTech or Zauber Paracelsus.  I simply love his products and want to make it easier for builders to access their sculpt maps, textures and such. I know how difficult and frustrating it can be to search for things when you’re in the middle of building. These are the tools that have helped me, and I want to share them with you.
