Emubbles (Emote Bubbles)
Have you always found it a problem
to disappear away from the PC from time to time
to grab a coffee or open a door for someone, only
to come back to a chat history full of "Hello,
hello? You there??? pffff". That's why we thought
it was a good idea to include some sort of easy
to use visualization system to let peeps know you
have popped out from your desk to do something.
Speech bubbles or Emubbles(c) are an effective way to let people
know what you are doing. Try them out see what you
think. Here are the ones included in the AVpack
- /afk = Away From Keyboard
- /brb = Be Right
- /busy = Busy
- /scr = Scripting
- /zzz = Asleep
- /ps = Photoshop
- /bld = Building
- /phone = Phone
- /im = IM's
- /birthday = It's my birthday
- /vote = Vote for me!
- /avpack = AVpack logo. Handy to show someone where to buy one if they click it.
yourself with this easy to use particle poofer!
Operation is simple. Type a period (full stop for
the Brit's) a space and then the name of the texture to poof
from the AVpack's poofer inventory and, well poof there
it is! Example. [period] [space] [name] ". woot"
or ". yo". There are tonnes built into
the AVpack so give them a whirl. Look for the poofer
texture names in your AVpack. Type /pooflist for the full list. More poofers will be added with future AVpack updates giving you even more value for money. To see where the AVpack keeps all it's poofer textures type /avpack and use Edit window, Edit Linked parts on that prim above your head.
All commands are, by default,
on the chat channel "0" or whatever you have that channel number set at.
To poof on that channel put a "."
then a space and then your texture name. Typing "." will
cause the poofer to poof last used poofer
texture. Texture can be changed by typing
the texture to change to [name].
|will change how long
it poofs for.
|will change how often
it emits during a poof.
|set how many particles
emitted during each emission.
|set the scale of the
particle. ( Size is a float, not a vector
|set the speed of emitted
|tells you all of the settings
( pooftime, poofspeed, etc. ).
|cause the script to reset
and load default values.
The note card "#poofconfig"
contains commands to be executed when it is
first run. To add your own you can
simply drag a texture from your inventory
into the AVpack and it will be ready for use.
- To send out poofers to an
avatar, target them first using #t then type call a poofer with . texturename .
- To send the last used poofer to a targeted avatar or object type #f or "." on its own.
- Once an avatar or object is targeted all poofers you call will go to them. To remove that type #end.
- You can even add
your own textures into the AVpack and the particle
poofer will poof them on command. Target somebody
with the AVpack and you can send your emote images
to that person. We use these allot to express ourselves
and they can be more fun than simple text.
- To recall the list of poofers in your AVpack inventory type /pooflist.
You can also make life easier for yourself and use the AVHUD to call your poofers. Pressing the Poofer section of the AVHUD will expand your poofer icons out. Pressing the flip feature button will cycle the six options you have available. You will see that the poofer images are organised into specific moods like happy, angry, excited and so on. At the far right you can see icons labeled "Drop Your Texture Here". This is where you would place a fully permissive (mod,copy,tans) texture from your inventory. Drop it onto the face of the poofers icon and it will be ready for use with our built in poofer images. If you left press the icon with your new texture painted on the front, it will tell AVpack to poof your texture. It is so easy with the AVHUD.
