AVpack Chat Commands
The AVpack can be activated using
a number of hot commands preceded by a forward slash (/), hash (#), star (*) or period (.).
Here is a quick run down of the commands you can
use. If you choose to talk to the AVpack on a channel other than 0, your command syntax would be /channelnumber /avpack command . Example if we picked channel 1 for communicating with the AVpack and we wanted to rez a "flyer" we'd type /1 /flyer etc. The default channel is 0, so we just type /flyer for normal use. Choosing a channel other than 0 will save some sim
resources, although using the default channel 0 is faster and simpler
to call commands.
AVpack recognises typed commands on channel 0. By default all AVpack commands listen to the owner only on channel 0. This is somewhat laggy on the sim though so in heavy loaded sims we suggest that you change the chat channel to another number. To do this type eg, /chat 1 to speak on channel 1. Commands once set to another channel other than 0 will be in the format of "/channelnumber /command". Some people might think why we use another / after my channel number? Well the / is just the same as the other key command symbol (/, *, #, . ). These help AVpack sort out where a command needs to go and rather than have AVpack read your whole line of text and causing more lag on the sim while using chat it is a sort of filter and helps AVpack parse commands faster.
AVpack also has a fixed or "hard-line" channel as we call it. This is channel /555 and can be used to allow people to create transferable gestures for use with AVpack. For example, if you create a gesture for your F12 key and in it is has the chat /555 /avchair, you can quickly access a seat if you need one, and pass this same gesture to one of your AVpack buddies. The hard-line channel supports any command you would use on your own custom chat channel.
Some of the features in AVpack have a toggle switch. The way we do this through chat interface is pretty easy. If you turn a feature on with a chat command, the same command will turn that feature off again. Toggle switches are listed below with a yellow star *
These documents are always in a state of change. Therefore, if you find that your AVpack doesn't respond to a command, it isn't that your AVpack doesn't work, it is more than likely that the documents have been edited to accommodate the new commands in a later version of AVpack.
