parachute Parachute

Explore your Second Life® in a a whole new way, with your built-in AVpack mesh parachute. This awesome stealth parachute will slow your decent when you fall from the sky, make you look cool and is sure to impress. And it is wired right into your AVpack. There is no external attachment to wear, no prims to sit on, it is part of your AVpack abilities. With its real time environmental effects, follow camera, custom created animations and physics controls, base jumping features and low lag script, this is one of the best parachute simulations in SL. Plus it has fricken rocket boosters too! What are you waiting for, find yourself a nice non laggy sim and get sky diving.

Disable any AO you are wearing while using your parachute, it may conflict with AVpacks parachute animations.

How to use your parachute,

  • Chat command /parachute toggles your parachute on/off. You can also use the AVHUD "Chute" button for convenience.
  • When in a free fall simply press your Page Down key and AVpack will open your parachute.
  • You can have AVpack automatically do this by using the /autodeploy [number] command.
  • You can toggle auto deployment on/off using the chat command /autodeploy
  • You can steer your chute once it is deployed by using the forward key + left & right arrow keys.
  • You can air brake by pressing the down arrow, this will also give you a small lift.
  • If you hover while falling or land normally, your parachute will pack itself away, leaving zero prims floating above your head.
  • Use your parachute in combination with the /rocketstand or /pod for some skydiving awesomeness with your friends.
  • AVHUDS "Warp2Alt" button will warp you to a height you give on the button. You can also type /alt 800 to perform the same action.
  • Type /parachutecam to toggle the parachute camera on/off.
  • Type /target to rez a landing target. Sit in the middle of it and it will throw you into the air ready to use your parachute.
  • Type /boosters to toggle boosters on/off. Your AVpack parachute has rocket boosters too, allowing you to stay in the air and explore more.
  • Hold your Page Down key once your parachute is deployed to use boosters to boost you forward and keep you in the air longer.
  • Base jumping is also supported. Jump in the air on the edge of a cliff or jump location and you will be propelled down the side of the mountain following the contour of the land. Don't leave pulling your parachute too late though or you may break your bones if you hit the ground.


eviltitle Evil Title

Love them or hate them you now have the popular 'evil titles' for your AVpack. This is a simple yet fun idea that allows anyone to post titles above your head. Why on earth would you allow a stranger to post things above your head you ask? Well, if you don't take yourself too seriously or just like to have a talking point, the evil title feature is for you. People with more than their quota of testosterone or who are easily offended may wish to disable this feature. For the rest of us though, we can have a bit of fun with it.

  • Type /eviltitle to toggle on/off
  • Type /tbar to change title bar styles. There are about twenty to choose from.
  • Type /tcolor to randomly change the colour of your title.
  • Type /title to clear a title.
  • Type /title [your title] to set a title.


fog Fog

A simple fog effect that surrounds your avatar with particle fog until disabled. Could be used before teleporting to give a spooky exit to your departures. Run into crowds and enable this feature to confuse or alarm enemies or to provide cover for a buddy under sniper fire.

  • Type /fog to toggle on/off.


spankme Spank Me

Have you been naughty today? If you think you have and you really need a good old butt spank, you are sure to like this feature. Have a friend or loved one give you what for by tanning your rear end! Simply enable this feature and tell your lover to left click your ass area. They will be given an option menu from where they can perform a number of cheeky actions to your butt!

  • Type /spankme to toggle on/off
  • Left click your ass area to access menu options.
  • Facial expressions react to actions.


mball Magic Ball

Maybe you have been in a situation where people just don't take no for an answer. Maybe you need to add spice to your life rather than follow the same old routine. For whatever reason, if you feel you need an outside opinion on matters, this handy Magic 8 ball feature will be sure to provide fun answers to you questions. Usage is simple.

  • Type /magicball [your question here]
  • Magicball will think about your question for a bit, then provide you with its words of wisdom.
  • The magic ball icon can be found in the AVbilities section of the hud for use too.


Super Jump Super Jump

Super Jump allows your avatar to jump much much higher than normal. One of the things that I thought might be fun to do while out climbing a mountain in SL one day, was to have the ability to jump higher to reach mountain shelves or to span a fairly big gap not able to be covered with my normal jump. With this idea in mind, I decided to manipulate my avatars gravity settings and how high he could jump. Now thanks to AVpack, you can do this too! It's really easy to do and with the AVpack HUD you can toggle this feature on and off really quickly. This feature has been designed not to interfere with the AVpacks built in flight assist and the two features actually talk to each other to ensure intuitive control of your avatar. The feature is listed under the AVbilities button on your HUD. To use it, simply crouch using your "Page Down" key and you will see a jump power indicator counting up on your AVpack. When you reach the desired power level, release your finger off the key and your Avatar will spring into the air. If you use this feature along with the Moon gravity settings you can even get to heights above the clouds using this. Using super jump reminds me of that training program that they had in the film the Matrix where Neo tries to jump from one building to another.

  • Type /superjump to toggle this feature on or off.
  • Change Gravity to Earth or Moon using your HUD to see the effects of jumping with each.
  • This feature looks really nice with animation overrides and will not effect normal AVpack Flight Assist.


dash Dash & RunToWarp

Dash and RunToWarp allows your avatar to dash forwards at a speed. This can be a handy way to evade enemies, or just to have fun bumping into your buddies or hopping onto roofs. Combine the dash feature with super jump and you can leap frog your avatar across a very large distance.

  • Type /dash to toggle on or off.
  • Press and hold Page Down key to charge your dash up. Then let go to dash forward.
  • Type /runtowarp [distance] to set your warp distance. Then double-tap your forward arrow to warp.
  • Dashing with different gravity settings can effect the distance your avatar will travel.
  • Combine your dash with super jump for some really loooooooong jumps!


gravity Gravity

Have fun micro gravity style! With the gravity feature of AVpack you can cycle between Earth (normal), Moon and Space gravity settings. Once active you will immediately notice that your avatar has more spring in his/her step. By setting your gravity to space you can cover quite a large distance with one single jump and drift gently back down to the ground. Want to sneak up on an opponent simply drop off a tall building for that slow and stealthy surprise. You can use gravity settings to give your Sky Station that extra orbital feel, or for just plain mucking about with a buddy for some micro gravity games of tag. Getting space sick? Simply hit the Earth gravity to return to normal.

  • Tip: If you wear your Spanner and have it set on "Smack" mode while using Space gravity you can apply an impulse to your mouse-look direction.
  • Chat commands are /gravity 1.0 for Earth /gravity 0.5 for Moon & /gravity 0.0 for space.
