💡 Did you know that AVpack is fifteen years old in Second Life in October 2020?! Wow! What a ride this has been.
This page will detail the changes to AVpack, both in its current form and also the work in progress versions. I hope this will allow users to see the progress that’s taking place and also be a quick useful guide to existing owners. 😃
To ensure you are reading the correct update notes for your AVpack, type /version to see which release of AVpack you have.
AVpack Development Stages
"Testing" = AVpack being tested by the Space Bums group before release. "Stable"** = The latest stable version of AVpack you will receive after a purchase or updating.

AVpack - Release : 78 - (v2.24.453) Testing (27/04/2022)
- Removed avatar keys debug string from target scanner prompt.
- Cleaned up comments from AVchair.
- Removed old fallback WarpOS code in AVchair.
- Fixed /give [object] command.
AVpack - Release : 77 - (v2.24.230) Stable (25/07/2020)
- New scanner code introduced to work around the limitations of 24 character usernames crashing scanner dialog.
- A crashed rezzer script can be reset from,
/mMore > Options > Reset All.
- Code testing to prevent crashing of rezzer script due to large amount of objects in AVpack.
- Rezzer menu no longer “double-dialogs” after selected item is rezzed.
- Rez query now displays more than one-page if query name exist for more objects.
- Fixed parachute being able to open while travelling up while in a super jump. Parachute will now only activate when falling down.
- Fixed recolouring of parachute and parts, new mesh faces numbers updated.
- Fixed AVpack mesh LCD color picker.
- Rezzed “beacon” avie search string corrected.
/rezcommand text on main menu dialogue.
- Fixed link to vehicle menu on AVHUD.
- Fixed rezzing name of “skimmer spoon” to “spoon”.
- Fixed old code links in AVHUD.
- Base jump detection no longer triggers animation when crossing sim border if parachute is open, and you are gliding.
- Base jump detection timer increased so basejumpcam does not trigger when jumping normally on land.
- Fixed “idiot trap”
- Reduced “h-workbay” mesh land impact.
- Gas can now do ARPS damage.
- iTP updated to version 13.
- AVCam modes will now stay locked when active. This includes ignoring slave camera modes like “Parachute Cam”, “BaseJump Cam” and “Landing Cam”. Meaning that if you set an AVcam mode other than 0, it will no longer be reset when crossing sim borders or by other modules which can trigger camera modes. This is useful, as you can now use AVcam while in vehicles, and the modes (1 - 4) when set, will stay locked until you enable AVcam 0 again. AVcam 0 releases the camera mode back to the default SL cam.
📝 Please note, that any vehicle which has its own camera modes may override the AVcam mode. So it’s best to check with your vehicle creator first if they have “disable camera” option in the vehicle script settings. I’ve tested AVCAM mode 4 with the “Bandit SRV210C” by “Analyse Dean” and it worked successfully. You just need to activate AVCam 4 after typing “start” to start the boat engine.
- “throw” attack removed from rezzable object attack menu and returned to text command
- Fixed material slot space check in hot water collection from campfire.
- Moved AVpack changelog to official website instead of Dropbox.

AVpack - Release : 76 - (v2.24.223) Stable. (08/04/2019)
- Contain updates from previous closed beta release 75.
- Fixed a weird bug that caused
llApplyImpulse()to not work, as script was in a “mesh” and not prim!
- AVpack root object reverted to prim. Parachute works again! Damn you LL!
- “AVpack LCD” mesh asset positioned as a child prim. See above. Can now be moved with “Edit linked parts”, so it is visible when wearing mesh clothing that would normally block it from view. It’s also responsible for detecting user input and presenting the main menu. If you unlink this - you won’t have a touch-menu. However, the main menu is still accessible via the
- Added the ability to blow “vape clouds” with the command
/vape, A mesh vape object will be included in AVpack at a later date.
- Rez menu now includes [Main] button to return to main AVpack menu.
- NEW! Partial name search for rezzer. You can now type
/rez object_nameto find any object inside AVpack that matches what you searched for. Providing that name is an object - it will rez it. If it finds more than one item matching what you searched for it will present you the rez menu to choose from what it found.
- Adjusted Parachute script and fixed a few bugs.
- Gravity when set to “Earth” while in the air now take instant effect. If you jump in the air using “Feather” then switch back to “Earth” your avatar falls.
- Changed Show/Hide code, since AVpack mesh is now a child prim. So long as this prim is name “AVpack LCD” it can be shown and hidden with the
- Fixed a bug in “avchair” that caused altitude button not to work correctly.
- “avchair” uses AVHUD colour picker to recolor the seat.
- Fixed a bug in “shield” not warping to destinations from AVHUD teleport sub-section.
- Sky station “hz-office” module reduced in Land impact from 30 prims to 19 as now uses mesh assets with normal prims.
- Sky station “hz-workbay” reduced land impact from 34 prims to 19.
- Sky station landing deck reduced in land impact from 16 to 7.
- Fixed warp in “quarters” module.
- Small retro sci-fi stand added to “quarters” module.
- Reduced sandbag land impact.
- Total rewrite of parachute script. Auto-deploy no longer sends you plummeting to your death.
- Base Jump detection is now triggered when an avatar jumps by tapping Page Up. When
/basejumpis active it will instantly turn your AVcam to the correct view so long as /basejumpcam is active.
- Parachute can now be deployed in mouse-look. Good when combined with
/runtowarpand warping to a position up in the air.
/basejumpcamcommand to enable/disable AVcam mode 1 when in base jump animation.
- Parachute boosters and bracket now part of parachute mesh. To save on one script count. Booster exhausts are still a separate prim since they emit particles from their axis.
- Fixed a bug in parachute
/autodeploynot triggering after a base jump.
- Super Farts are back!!! For the longest time the ability to fart when you super jump has been bugged. Now its fixed again. Simply enable
/farter, then press and hold the Page Down key for a few seconds, then release to launch yourself into the air using only what you had for breakfast!
ARPS (AVpack Roleplay Survival)
- Fixed ARPS survival titles.
- Minor script clean-up in ARPS core.
- Increased ARPS level cap from 80 to 100.
- Thermos flask now returns water if too much is provided.
- You no longer lose all materials, XP and levels earned when you die. You just get a fatigue condition and energy drop after death.
- Campfire displays how many cooking slots are available.
- If campfire runs out of wood and goes out, no food/water that was cooking is lost. Food continues cooking after campfire is lit again.
- Added the ability to gain supplies while playing GTFO.
Until an API for third party RP plugins (*cough) is created by the GTFO team, I’ve created a script to drop into the GTFO HUD that will reward “ARPS” players with supplies on successful freight delivery. This will probably be deprecated once “Hot Reels Fishing” is released, and we can collect our own resources.
- Added a birds nest node. You can find eggs to cook on the campfire and also feathers to use in crafting items.
- Added iron, lead, potassium, gold, coal, copper, sulphur and stone to pick axe. These ores will be used in future crafting updates.
- Changed campfires requirement from “firewood” to just “wood” to save a step in setting it up.
- Log node now provides “wood” instead of “firewood”.
- Chopping stump is now deprecated, since we can get wood straight from trees.
- Energy is now updated live to work tools when gained or depleted.
- Main ARPS menu now displays level.
- Timed resource nodes now give amounts based on how long they have been left out. The longer you leave them alone the more materials you’ll get from them when you go back to them. Clicking on a node that has not been out long resets the cool down timer again. This is to prevent material farming by “happy clickers”.
- Added a satiation cool-down timer into ARPS. This means that once you’ve eaten or drank something, there is a wait time before the hunger and thirst condition will affect you again. The types of food you eat have varying buffer periods; so if you eat a full meal rather than a snack it will take longer until you feel hungry again.
- AVpack will now report when you are fully hydrated and satiated if notifications are turned on.
- Added a basic anti-cheat into ARPS material nodes.
- ARPS drinks decrease in volume as they are consumed.
- Added “Skills” to ARPS. Now you will need to level up in certain skills to perform tasks or use nodes.
- Changed ARPS condition input nodes from single entry to list entry inputs. This speeds up data entry and reduces core and node script memory.
- Changed ARPS material reward nodes to list entries instead of parsing singular items. Same benefits as above.
- Updated ARPS findValInlist() function to use strides for pseudo ListEntryType id.
- Materials destroy option now uses remenu and reports which material was destroyed.
- Materials menu now shows when all materials have been destroyed. Destroy button only shows when you have more than 0 material slots in use.
- Added “Burning Barrel” to ARPS resource nodes. Allows you to turn wood into charcoal.
- [Experimental] Material value checks added to node to ask users current material value. This is to prevent the node from giving resources to players with full inventory. Instead the node offers you an amount up to the maximum you can hold. Leaving the rest for later collection.
- ARPS material notifications will now tell you how many materials you’ve collected. Plus the total you have and how many more of that material you are able to collect.
- Material menu now plays a small sound sample when destroying material slots.
- Some other small internal code improvements.
- Fixed a bug in “tent” that caused AO’s to override tent sleep animation on sitting.
- Added ARPS skill point selector. Every time a player levels up they are rewarded a skill point which they can spend on upgrading their preferred skills.
- Added node skill-checking. Nodes will check a players skill level in order to activate that node.
- Fixed: Rezzer script now decreases your ARPS energy when rezzing items.
- Improved campfire flame particles and embers.
- Changed target selector hovertext to yellow, so it’s more readable over the red background.
- Changed scanner avatar detection sound.
AVpack - Release : 75 - (v2.23.005) Stable. (16/06/2018)
- [Experimental] Added water collision buoyancy effects to flight assist, so you don’t splat on the sea bed after a base jump. Test with
- [Experimental] Added underwater buoyancy swim effects to be more realistic than default settings for the environment. Test with
ARPS (AVpack Roleplay Survival)
- Added “AVpack Roleplay Survival” experience key. Activate this on your land and accept permissions for your avatar to interact with rezzed items from ARPS.
- Updated most of the ARPS wearable items for experience keys. This prevents the normal permission requests from breaking immersion.
- Updated tent to provide fatigue & trauma buffs through ARPS core script.

- Added hot water to hot drinks option in thermal flask.
- Combined custom functions for handling material, skills and conditions into one function.
- Separated materials from ARPS core into its own script so more memory is available for future material handling.
- Added blood effects to separate state to try and avoid random bleeding when not injured.
- Added “YOU DIED” cover screen and death jingle to AVHUD when dead.
- Added flies to dead body state.
- Added Energy status to stats bar.
- Changed 0 energy state to make you hungry rather than tired.
- Fixed night/day detection.
- Balanced hunger, thirst and fatigue conditions for time of day.
- Increased fatigue trigger limit duration.
- Added “Particles” menu to ARPS options to toggle AVFX particles on/off.
- Cottage prims reduced from 36 to 15 and size of build scaled better in relation to avatar size.
AVpack - Release : 74 - (v2.20.231) Stable. (24/11/2017)
😌 “I’m back in Second Life® after an extended break. AVpack updates to continue.”
ARPS (AVpack Roleplay Survival)
- Changed “everyone” flag id to NULL_KEY in campfire and in ARPS as a detection for multiple keys in the area.
- Added fatigue condition removal for sitting on anything during the day. This doesn’t work while sitting at night, you will still need to sleep or you’ll lose energy.
AVpack Update Server
- Changed newer AVpack releases to connect to the new update server UUID. If you purchased an AVpack before this date - message me for an update in-world as the old AVpack only links to the old update server. An update point has been added to my shop for existing AVpack User group members to easily update from an old AVpack.
- Stopped scanner overloading with audible alert pings.
- Repaired broken colour script in h-quarters .
AVpack - Release : 73 - (v1.9.78) Stable. (15/09/2014)

- Added the command
/rlvlockto toggle Restrained Love API on/off.
(experimental. Thanks to Bluezy Bleac for the suggestion.)

- Flight assist enhanced. Flight script shuts down completely while on the ground or underwater.
- Better implementation of AVpack XP & Stats. Reduced script load and improved performance for loading and saving data.
- Radio tuner script removed from AVpack and is now located in the “avpack_server”. Avatars don’t need to be wearing a full radio script when in other sims anyway, so a home server makes more sense.
- AVEmail scripts removed from AVpack. This feature has been discontinued and was hardly ever used anyway.
- AVpack drinks now use their own particle system instead of the main poofer system.
- AVpack XP system updated. Includes new load and save features. Instead of reporting xp for each ability you gain category xp, so instead of “Head Hops = 65” it will now read “Fun = 65”.

Live Help system implemented. Click the “?” icon and a small screen opens up. Clicking on AVHUD subcategories will provide information on what that section does. “Quick Tips” displayed for some actions on the status bar.
- All scripts updated to use the
llSetLinkPrimitiveParamsFast()function call. This gives really good speeds for the hud without the delay and energy costs of the old function calls.

- Total Sky Station overhaul. New scripts, less prims; new module designs and lots of other cool features. New textures too. :::info IMPORTANT NOTICE: The AVpack Sky Station is no longer compatible with older AVpack Sky Station modules. If you try and connect the modules from this AVpack to your older modules, it will not work. In order to reduce scripts I had to opt for an enhanced connecting system. Trust me this one is far better than than the one I created five years ago! :::
- Added access shaft to Junction. These modules now include a built in access tube. From here you can traverse up and down vertical tubes to upper and lower junctions using the transporter.

- Ground button will move you downward to the ground level if you are up in the air on a deck. (experimental)

- Colour for finder beam can now be changed via AVHUD.
- Flight assist script tweaked.
- Improved gradual acceleration to top speed.
- Minor bug fixes.
- Flight poofers are now only triggered when you travel at 10m/s+. This stops them poofing when you are hovering.
- Alpha Flyer, AVchair now use AVHUD colour picker.
- Sentry Gun, improved sound on attack, server now removes target if Sentry turned off.
- SOCOM: Pistol improved.
The SOCOM now has a health bar, clip display, ACS (AVpack Combat System) for role play fighting. Type
/ammoto drop ammo crates for ammo pickups. Type
/healthto rez a health pack for when low on health. These can be used by all AVpack owners during combat. Simply run over them for a top-up. These should be positioned before roleplay combat.
- SOCOM: rounds improved and with added ACS.
- SOCOM: *New Rounds - Paint ball, custard, soap, rounds.
- SOCOM: HUD updated to use hover text instead of gfx.
- SOCOM: Configuration wheel added to switch rounds and set options. Round and clip displayed on HUD.
- SOCOM: Speed & Damage now easily set using +/- HUD buttons.
- SOCOM: Melee option added (range 1.5m). Use the melee gesture or HUD to toggle Melee I/O. When in close range press either E or Page Up when “Melee” is on to attack opponent when too close to shoot them. This makes for fun battles.
- SOCOM: Shell & clip eject default off for faster rezzing of bullets. You can turn this on for showing off, but I would suggest leaving it off during battle as each mass rezzed slows down the next rez.
- SOCOM: Round count bug corrected.
- SOCOM: Customisable holster via HUD colourize sub-menu. I have created a nice colour picker for the SOCOM so you can experiment with lots and lots of colours. the end two colours will not change so you can set your shades there while using the colour cycle gadget to sample colours. You can also colour the SOCOM laser from this section too. No option to colour the actual gun yet, I like the military grey colour and the thought of someone walking around with a pink SOCOM just makes me shudder!
- SOCOM: Menu improved. If you use it!
- Lastly. Land Security Rounds. Yes, your SOCOM can now be used as a security aid for your parcel.
AVpack now has a “avpack_server” object in its contents. Rez this out by typing
/rez avpack_server. Once this is out in world, it must remain on your land to perform its actions. Listed inside this server is a note card called “access”. This is the place that you would add fellow AVpack/SOCOM users names to, if you want them to have land ban, eject, send home privileges. Next choose one of the land rounds from the SOCOM. eg, Eject I/O. Buttons with the suffix I/O mean that it is a toggle switch. Pressing that button once would turn the feature on, pressing the same button again turns the feature off… Once the land rounds are active, when you shoot a resident they will have that land action performed on them. People who’s names you have listed as security officers in the “access” note card will not be affected by shooting them. If avpack_server is being used on group land, it MUSt be deeded to that group.
- Improved Superjump and Dash.
- Superjump height has been increased.
I managed to find a way to reduce LL avatar dampening, leading to higher jumps and longer dashes. Man! I missed my super jumps…
- Stand updated. It is now only one prim and you can use the arrow keys to cycle through any animations you put inside it. Command /stand
/hudtvis now replaced by
/avpack_server. Please replace any old HUDtv boxes on your land with this new server.

To accommodate this, I have added a SLurls Pin to the AVHUD. Click this to go to your current positions auto generated SLurl. it will then open your web browser for you to easily generate your location. More information on this way of organizing SLurl landmarks can be found on Torley Lindens excellent videos.

- CamTP code added to AVpack device instead of HUD, so no more request permission nag requesters.
- CamTP now reports cam position in chat.

Any gremlins or things that are just weird, please email email@example.com with a full detail and how to replicate any issues.
AVpack - Release : 60
With the popularity of AVpack becoming so great, my humble little update server is churning out smoke at the weight of every hour of the day checking for updates for AVpack users when they log in. Future updates of AVpack to you ARE NOW ONLY AVAILABLE FROM THE
/m> More > OPTIONS > UPDATES button. If you are part of the AVpack group, I will post update news to the group so you will always be kept up to date. For those that do not wish to be part of the AVpack group, you can check for updates at least once a month using the method described above. I hope will free up some sim resources at my AVpack HQ and make AVpack boot up faster when you rez in.
- Added a feature to AVpack to reduce the arm waving when you are typing. It overrides the typing animation to stop you typing. Works best in low lag sims. Syntax to toggle this feature is
- Changed the flames in the Flame Thrower and also the Bombs in the Spanner.
- No need to shout “run” when using dynamite or bombs from spanner, they will auto fuse and explode after being thrown.
- Drone reports back with “Avatar Name : : message”. This was added since users thought people where spying on them when it was actually their own drones reporting back what they heard when deployed. Hopefully the two “: :” will let you know that it is a chat relay from your own device.
- Added a “Head Hop” feature. Someone had this in another gadget and we though it would be a fun addition to AVpack. Simply target the person you wish to head hop and press the “GO TO” button on the hud. When used with a bunch of AVpack users you can build an avatar tower like in the circus its fun ;)
- Fixed camp fire seating logs to use anim poses. No more squatting on the floor inside them.
- Fixed sit anim in AVchair to use default sit. Weapons will no longer poke in your ears now if used in combat.
- Shield: fixed camera position and animation to hover instead of the old yoga_float anim.
- Shield and AVchair now listen on channel 5 for commands eg,
/5 alt 760(where 760 can be an altitude height). This can be used to get you out of a sticky situation without clicking on anything leaving the idiot that trapped you guessing after they lift a trap and you are not in it!
- Some people complained that
/avhelpertook up too many prims on the land so now it has been reduced to just 3 prims.
- Added a frying pan thrower to weapons main menu on AVpack. This is purely a fun weapon so is not on the HUD.
/alt [number]where number can be up to 768 has been enhanced.
- CamTP now rezzes an temporary deck which will auto delete after 80 seconds. Click the deck to keep it out.
- Confusion about freeview texture notecard in
- AVhelper docs updated to include info about gadget enhancements
- Added a
/hovercommand toggle to flight assist. When off and you are above cloud level your avatar will descend slowly. Can be used in place of anti splat for more gentle landings or to avoid splat landings at high speeds.
- Added a stand pose into the “lander” deck and “Skubble” inside AVpack (not the builder pack). Sitting on them will put your avatar into a stand pose. Can be used while building to prevent people pushing you about while AFK or if you fall off the deck.
- Main menu subsystem changed.
/kchat command link to primary weapons menu.
- Fixed bug with no typing override.
- Patch for HUD Scanner auto setting ping to 0. If this still happens please IM me with reproducible bug information.
- Few internal code changes.
AVpack - Release : 59
- Linden Labs added a
llRegionSay()function today. So now AVpack utilizes this instead of the previous method to stop weapons and other stuff.
- Some small code cleanups.
You do not need a new HUD for this release its purely under the “HUD” fixes! uurgh! :P
AVpack - Release : 58
- Updated icons for the AVHUD to make text more visible but still keep minimal HUD footprint.
- AVHUD is now given to the user to wear from inventory rather than rez in world. This was changed due to a recent Second Life client HUD alpha bug.
- Fixed problem with HUD TV area on AVHUD not expanding.
- Scanner on AVHUD is now toggle enabled (is that even a word!). Pressing the “Scan” icon on the HUD now controls Scanner on/off operation. The “Scan” icon initially controlled the collection of avatar Keys in your scan range but since this function can be called from the main scanner menu anyway, it seemed best to consolidate this function and leave the scan icon to toggle the actual scanner in and out of the HUD.
- CamTP and AVChair no longer spam destination coordinates on transporting.
- Email system built into AVpack called AVEmail. This will allow you to post emails to the outside world. Type
/avemailserverto rez the required server and turn it on. Then type
/avemailto turn this feature on or hit the Email HUD icon. Follow the prompts and your done. The HUD icons make it even easier to use. You can add your own email contacts to the “MyEmailContacts” notecard inside AVpack for quick access to your buddies external emails. Type ’list’ while in email mode to recall emails from contact list. See the AVEmail guide in this helper for more info.
Note: In times of high server usage, I can’t guarantee instant incoming emails, but they should get there eventually.
/avhelpas lots of other stuff out there uses the generic command /help and this caused the AVpack help to show when people where using other scripted objects.
- Updated scripts in mortar bombs. They should now be more effective.
- Added mortar bombs to RPG. Mega explosive effect plus multiple push destruction projectiles! If fired higher than 50m of you current position, they will spread out into a carpet bomb effect.
- Mines changed slightly to allow better collision detection.
- Electro Orb & Rockets in RPG updated. Flames in Flame Thrower updated.
- Fixed Fireball, Beacon tracking and HUD kill.
- Added some deployable exploding mushrooms into the Spanner. Simply plant them and click them and they will release a bunch of temp on rez collision detonating mushrooms. They will explode on contact with prims or avatars.
- Re-scripted the explosives in the spanner (Proxy Mortar, Land Mines, Mushrooms) to rez at your avatars feet based on your height plus region position rather than try to locate at ground level. This means you can now plant explosives on sky decks or in buildings etc.
- Updated HUDTV box when deeded to land group should now listen to same group AVpack users. You should now be able to set music on group land if within chat range of these and using the AVpack radio. As I don’t own group land, let me know how this goes. Please ensure that both you and your AVpack are in the same group as the land plus HUDTV box is deeded to that land. To do this change your group title to your land group, then wear AVpack.
- Need to sell a plot of land in a hurry? Maybe these prefab land sale boxes will help, plus clickable land info for possible buyers. Just type
/saleand click them to expand.
- The long awaited Skimmer XT makes it into the AVpack. This is the evil twin of the two seater Skimmer we all know and love. Out goes the extra seat and in comes custom animations, more speed, and better handling. You can find this on the HUD under Vehicles or by typing
/skx. It also comes with its own HUD so don’t forget to wear that.
- Re-scripted AVChair to now include CAM Tracking. This means that we no longer need the CamSeat as this feature is all in one device. This also saved us a HUD icon. For “Cam Seat” mode using AVChair simply click the back rest and select “Cam Track” from the cam menu. I have tried to make the AVChair move a bit more smoothly but until I find a cleaner solution it will still seem a little jumpy. It should travel faster now and also follow you if you jump off. You can even carry your buddy too or boot him/her off. While you are on the AVChair you can expand out a buddy seat and use it as a sit shield for your friend and make them 100% immune to push or orbits like yourself. It can also be used as a simply buddy travel device while out shopping or when building together.
- Added a sit shield with a basic deflector for physical objects. This isn’t the best shield out there as I am still experimenting with shielding but it will stop you from being orbited or to escape traps. Simply press the shield icon on the HUD and sit on the orb that will rez around you. It will auto delete once you stand up.
- Added re-menu into builder pack after users request. Menu will now continue to prompt for options until you hit ignore. This can be useful as you no longer have to pan your camera back to your avatar on larger builds.
- Slightly better explosion effect added to Sky Station modules.
- JUNCTION renamed to JUNCTIONHZ. JUNCTIONHZ now controls security options for the station complex. Force fields are now rezzed and controlled by both security panel in JUNCTIONHZ and by touching the force fields themselves. You can allow same group , private or public access to your junctions through junction security options menu. Optional computer audio voice effects for avatar detection and reporting feature that will IM you with any details of a breach.
- Doors removed from landers and exit modules. After users feedback it was decided that doors are only really functional for rooms and force fields are better for openings or decks.
- Some Builder Pack modules renamed for better understanding.
- Textures added to WORKBAY.
- BAY renamed to SMALLBAY and also improved.
- Forcefield on JUNCTIONHZ are now labelled as restricted zones.
- Rewrite of group features in Quarters. Furniture is now only rez and de-rezzed by click the rez panels instead of the actual furniture. This now allows same active group to control furniture presence.
- Updated fish tank in Quarters to one of the quality models I have in my shop. This includes changeable backdrops, sand and sliding “EZ-Edit” front glass, sound effects and bubble and water effects.
- New ship out the dock, the “Drop Ship” with a newly designed shell (well a bit better than the crappy Shuttle anyway). It is accessible from the top and rear, via top entrance dock or cargo ramps. This should not pose a problem as it was primarily designed to dock under docking tubes or land on lander decks anyway. New non mouse look flight physics so you can look around in the cockpit while flying.
- Fixed rocket pods in Launcher decks. They can now be controlled by the public if the shutter is open on the deck.
- The ‘drone’ has been taken into the workshop and had a small oiling and makeover. He now auto cloaks when he’s away from you and will uncloak and travel back over your head when you are out of CamTracking or he comes within range of you. Fixed bug where ‘drone’ would not listen to HUD Stop commands.
- Added a fun little changing room for those that do not wish to expose their nipples and other nether-regions while getting changed in public. Type
/cror hit the HUD option under Avatar to have AVpack expand into a avatar sized changing room around you. You can still click your legs or alt-cam inside to undress. Touch to hide.
- Added a ‘Dash’ ability to the avatar features. This is an experimental forward impulse to your avatar with variable force. This feature can be used to run out of the way of something and also when combined with “Super Jump” you can scale large distances by jumping both up and out.
- Fart added. The guys will love this but the chic’s will want to kill me for this! Simply enable it and crouch. No explanation needed. Fun in groups or in combination with Dash and Super Jump.
- Fixed E-Mubble textures not showing up by UUID. You can now show your own E-Mubble textures by typing both /bubble texturename (if inside AVpack contents) and /bubble textureuuid again.
- Poof textures added : “ty”, “doom”,“birthday”.
- If you Rez a CamTP beam (/camtp) and sit on it and type /alt num (where “num” is the altitude number up to 768), you can travel up to that height and AVpack will auto rez a deck under you.
- Need a quick note card but cant be bothered going into your inventory to create one? Type /note and AVpack will get you one. Edit the note card and hit save and… “zip!” it goes right into your Notecards folder in your inventory.
- Those objects filling up your inventory? Need a quick place to stash them all? Type /storage or /box. Hopefully you can tidy your inventory a bit quicker with these. They only record objects at the moment but I may do ones for other files later.
- Re-menu added to AVpack radio.
- Can now change the colour of the AVlight by typing
/avlightcolvector (where vector = <1,1,1> ). Need a custom colour? Type
/mgo to the tools menu and rez a ColorCube. Colour this cube and touch to generate colour vectors to copy and paste.
Any bugs let me know…
AVpack - Release : 57
- Added Throw to the Kill menu. You can lift avatars into the air nearby you and throw they about you 10m over your head. This acts kind of like a invisible magnet and does not use and rezzable prim to achieve this feature. The force of the pull is maximized by the closeness of the avatar to your avatar.
- HUD Scanner area has been redesigned a bit. Out goes the old framed look and in comes a single prim hover text with animated scan area. Touch this prim for scanner options. Scanner also has an alert option to let you know when avatars are in chat range.
- Added a fun little craft to the AVpack. I have been playing with the flight controls all over the weekend to get it to behave nicer. It is called a “Skimmer” and it will also be sold outside of the AVpack with possibly more variations of the craft. It’s kind of like a hovering Scooter or those hovering skateboard pad or platform things you may have seen on some sci-fi movies. It is great fun for travelling about on and makes for some wicked racing action if you find a few hills and valleys. It has two modes, “flight” and “skim”. Skim mode will hug you to 2m above the ground and is great for general open Linden land travel. The “flight” mode is handy for climbing high up into the sky then dropping into “skim” mode. The craft is meant to be used on open sloped beach type Linden land or flat linden water sims, so try not to go shopping on it or you may find you’ll get stuck in prim floors or walls and other obstacles. You can customize its colours for body panels and rocket flames, toggle dust effects and lights on and off. You can even toggle camera controls. Plus if you have a friend they can ride behind you on the craft too. I hope you find it as much fun as I did while making it. Type
/skimmerto rez and use one.
AVpack - Release : 56
- Fixed error in iTP pads not being able to show location 11 on menu.
- Fixed AVpack device being No Mod.
- Added RPG Launcher to AVpack type /rpg and wear. Click rear of cannon (silver rim & black projectile) to toggle damage and bullet type. Click side scope to toggle speed of projectile.
- Code cleanups.
AVpack - Release : 55
- Small texture problem on AVpack device corrected.
- HUD: iTP Location stamp icon added to the top bar. This will make it even easier to record your iTP positions. Simply stand where you wish to place an iTP pad and push this button. It will give you a vector to copy and paste into your Locations note cards for inside your iTP pads. Once you put your finished locations note card into an iTP pad you may then shift drag copies of it and ride all the pads back to each location to leave copies.
- Fireball - Added to weapons (under Kill subsection on the HUD). Everyone else has got one! How did we miss it! Well now all AVpack users have the ability to set their neighbors on fire and share the warmth. Gas mark 7 fun!
- Added /subchan command to allow user to select what channel number to issue subchat commands or chat to. Example /subchan 4 would set your subchat channel for “Ghost Mode” to 4.
- Added calls to the E-mubble system for quicker use. Use a star before calling textures from AVpack inventory to use as E-mubbles. Example *smile
- Textures that do not exist inside the AVpack inventory will not be found or used. User will be notified. If you have any suggestions for E-mubbles textures for me to include, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Freeview texture added to AVHELPER so you can watch parcel videos on your helper screen.
- Tweaked HUD a little to resize & position scanner when off.
- New fun hangout added called “Skubbles” short for Sky Bubbles. Type /skubble to rez one. They function as a quick hangout pad. You can click and rez a group seating so you can chat to your buddies in the sky. Touch the coloured rim and it will enclose the bubble for more private stuff or a quick shield against flying physical objects. I may add to the features list if people use them. For now just a funky cool way to quickly plonk out a meeting area.
- Camp Fire Group Seating added. Usage: /gs
- Tent added. Has a door on the front. Usage : #rez Tent
- Cloak icon on the HUD now toggles cloak avatar body cloak on & off.
- Added Space Gravity Icon to HUD under Avatar. Only use this for fun and jumping about as it will really spaz out your movement if left active.
- Combat belt resized and remodeled to be unisex. Can now be scaled down to fit female avatars smaller hip sizes.
- Got a great song from the radio in your head but mumbling to the words? Try typing /lyrics [songname] and AVpack might help you.
- Some additional radio URL on request added.
- More pages added to AVHELPER.
AVpack - Release : 54
- Fixed Stop Animations script. It seemed to have stopped working after last weeks server update.
- llSetPos fallback now applied to all most objects that used WarpPos as primary movement. When WarpPos is repaired by the Lindens again the script will auto adjust.
- Quarters updated a bit. Few script cleanups. First stages of group access through control panel for lights and odd bits. Need to edit each piece of furniture for group control as this is more complex. Try not to mess with RezLock or Click Lock yet as they are not quite finished. You are only seeing this Quarters because of the WarpPos patch in it. Still more work to do on security options. RezLock & Click locks are going to be toggle switches on the control panel which will block any accidental clicks you make to the quarters. There are no notifications built into the feature yet so use with care.
- llSetScriptState is still damaged due to the Linden server patch. This is a SL server issue and not an AVpack issue.
AVpack - Release : 53
- New help page added to AVHELPER. Given the exciting week we have had so far and the unforeseeable bugs LL may lie upon us in future. I thought it best to include a “Known Issues” page that will try to detail as many issues as possible in future updates and also solve my bursting IM windows with “this don’t work” reports.
- Please view the Known issues page which outlines the things that do not work in AVpack at this time.
- AVHUD - Changes to the HUD mean that it is now to better to fit all screen resolution 1024x768 and upwards. The HUD icons have been made smaller and kept to the left of the screen. The scanner window can be moved around and have its position saved. You can simple press CTRL ALT T to view transparent object on the HUD. Slide the dark panel out the way and move the text prim to required position. Press the red record button on AVpack main icon HUD to save scanner window position. The same now applies to the TV view screens.
- AVHUD - Poofers icon added. This section now allows you to drop your own textures onto the prims to poof using the AVpack. There are a number of built in textures ready for use, but you can still add your own. Only use poofer textures on the Poofers section as they will not work on other AVHUD sub sections.
- Fixed the AVChair rezzing at weird distances away from avatars.
AVpack - Release : 52
- Linden Lab have fixed the WarpPos problem so CamTP and iTP now function as normal. Phew!
- llSetScriptState should also now be fixed which will no longer cause errors after teleporting using the map.
- CamTP updated to allow a bunch of people to travel with you. Simply tell them to click the beam you are sitting on before teleporting.
- iTP also updated with a group beam. This can be selected by sitting on the configuration pad and select BEAM from the menu til “groupbeam” is shown.
- Removed some redundant code in AVpack.
- /time removed as it was not used and gave odd time zone info in certain areas.
AVpack - Release : 51
The “Oh F”#K the Lindens broke stuff” patch.
- Fixed slight Flight Assist drift downwards when in hover mode.
- iTP and CamTP are both dead until Linden Labs replace the code they borked in the last server patch. I have seen the WarpPos update fix but it kind of defeats the split second teleporting that iTP and CamTP provided so I am putting the squeeze on the Lindens for a fix as are many others. You can too. Simply IM Philip “with one L” Linden” and tell him how much you care :)
- SOCOM gun comms changed slightly and crap looking muzzle fire prim removed and swapped with particles.
- Fixed the rock in the spanner being non physical.
- llSetScriptState was also borked after the last Second Life server update. A patch has been added to stop errors after teleporting. you will see errors when using the # or stop button until LL fix this.
- llParticleSystem is still bugged client side causing your last used particle to poof even when not on command. Seems to happen after a object state change like er.. moving your avatar! Still waiting for them to fix this one!
- Linden Lab tell us that they are deploying a fix on Friday 16th to (fingers crossed and holding my nuts) fix some of the problems from this weeks update. I sure hope they don’t create any more!
AVpack - Release : 50
Not many updates this release due to heavy contract work.
- Fixed SHUTTLE in builder pack. Shaved some prims off it and it can now can transport up to 4 other people including pilot. Simply fly within chat distance of a DOCK module and say “dock” in chat and shuttle will auto dock. (no more alt cam elbowing around yay!!) Climb into a docked SHUTTLE and say “undock” and it will auto detach from station DOCK module and fire up it’s engines. IMPORTANT Replace any old DOCK modules on your station, for the ones in AVpack v50’s Builder Pack for this feature to work.
- Some minor paint work on the inside the SHUTTLE. TP panel on the wall. Touch this to allow your buddies to be transported out of the shuttle and into the Hangar above. Captain always TP’s last of course :) I might continue on SHUTTLE improvements or more crafts if people use it.
- Some minor changes to scripts on the HUD.
- HUDTV boxes now fully mod copy and transfer to aid in deeded land use. rez these with /hudtv
- Few extra plants and grass added to Spanner.
- Two new poofers added. Valentines day is on it’s way so we have . mybitch and for those looking . bemybitch
- Options - Sounds, now retains it old settings after reboot or login.
- Combat Belt replaced as some users reported it missing from auto updater release. (another Linden Labs bug? Users may want to check inventory of objects you make or own as this is the second time an item has vanished from AVpack. The last time it was CamSeat! I am keeping backups of AVpack items in my inventory incase this bug happens again).
- For those wondering about future updates, work has now started on group control for QUARTERS. This will benefit renters and should be expected in an upcoming release.
AVpack - Release : 49
- Added a small push to the Rocks inside the Multi Spanner
- HUD - Lindex Stats info removed due to conflicts of interest.
- Added Avatar Gravity toggle to the HUD under Avatar button. You can now change between Earth or Moon gravity for your avatar. Combined with the feature below you can jump even higher now with Moon gravity and “Super Jump” enabled. Remember though to turn to Earth gravity before you try to fly, or you may find weird floating effects happen or you fly too fast! :P
- Added a feature to “Super Jump” now using your crouch button (Page Down). No one uses this key much but now (if Super Jump is enabled) you can jump much further in the air by simply crouching down and releasing your Page Down key. This feature may become more functional in future but for now it should allow you to jump in the air higher. Looks funny on chicks that have a splits override for the animation. :D they do the splits then take off its hilarious! lol
- To enable/disable Super Jump type /superjump
- HUDTV - What the hell is this? Well the AVpack HUD now has an option to let you view land owners TV’s right on your HUD. Look for the HUDTV boxes situated near TV’s on land owners parcels. If you press your HUDTV button on your HUD, then touch this box in world, it will send the TV data to your HUD and make it automatically turn into a mini portal TV.
- As long as you stay on the land owners parcel with the media playing you can move about as normal and still look at the TV right on your screen on your HUD. Handy for builders who like to watch cartoons!
- Land owners can rez a HUDTV box by typing /hudtv
- Flight Assist now detects velocity and when you hit max (250.0) flight will create a slight sonic flight nose around your avatar. Works on Fast and Insane flight speeds only. Recommend flying straight up or down to hear. Forward flight is left untouched as you don’t really go this fast forward anyway due to sim width. Can be toggled on/off with Main menu AVpack Sounds in Options.
- Flight assist now disables when you are underwater. This will set your flying speed back to the game defaults until you get out of Linden water where again the flight assist takes over. This will benefit users of animation overrides that have swim animations yet do not want to swim like a rocket due to the increments of the flight assist.
- Avatars now detect when they hit Linden water at a given speed and will make a splashing nose. Can also be turned off through Menu – Options - Sounds.
AVpack - Release : 48
- Added better clicking area to Multi Spanner
- Added a SLURL generator to the AVpack type /slurl and it will auto create a link for you to copy and paste to your web pages. Also provides preview link.
- HUD Scanner Window now minimizes and maximizes during avatar detection.
- Also will stay open by default since it auto minimizes on no detection of avatars.
- Can toggle scanner report window on and off through touch.
- Touching the Scan readout window provides a menu to view;
- Lindex activity data with the Stats option selected.
- Sim Performance
- Range & Ping settings for proximity scanner
- On / Off Toggle for Scanner.
- HUD buttons added
- Flight - Anti Splat - If you smack too hard into an object or ground your AVpack will auto lower your flight speed to normal flight.
- Flight - Air Brakes - Handy for people who don’t like the drift of normal flight. Allows you to toggle the flights “dead stop” air brakes feature on and off.
- Poofers added, “zomg” & “lol”
- Avatar tracking beacon now updated a bit. Should last longer and also respond to the STOP command.
- Electro Shock updated slightly.
- Poofer perms changed to try track down what’s causing AVpack to be No Mod.
- Drone fixed should now respond to the STOP icon on the HUD and is now 50% less script heavy.
AVpack - Release : 47
- SOCOM Hand Gun no longer loses info on teleports. No need to rez and wear another.
- SOCOM Scanner updated to included more names during area scan.
- Fixed problem with AVpack HUD Scanner talking to buddies HUDS! Cheers Robin.
- AVpacks should now be Mod again! Think something went wrong when they where last put in the update server! Oopsy!
- 2 new Emubbles added. These are hard coded into the AVpack for now. Type /birthday or /vote to display them.
- Fixed Subchat #be command
AVpack - Release : 46 - (18/01/2007)
- Added new buttons to HUD
- Main - Poof Last Poofer
- Main - Kill Target
- Kill - Zone Push (Toggle)
- Kill - Electro Shock
- Avatar - Stop all Animations
- Weapons - Float
- Weapons - Blind
- Weapons - Trap
- Weapons - Gas
- Subchat is now its own submenu.
- Proximity Scanner added to HUD. Touch to toggle options.
- Added Chat Range Scanner to HUD. Now you can see who is around you also toggles to Full Range Scan plus key grabber.
- Rocket POD fixed. POD was getting stuck and not moving. Hopefully the change has fixed this issue.
- Trap is now 1 prim and persistent. Will follow target using Warp and is much faster and smarter and harder to escape.
- iTP transport beams fixed and will only listen to their own pads. Sit on pad now launches config menu.
- Floater and AG Orb now use Warp system to quickly reach target.
This has been on the cards for some time now. I have been so busy with customer support that I forgot to add this in sooner.
- CamTP - Teleport using your alt cam. You can touch the CamTP icon on the AVpack HUD now to rez a copyable transporter beam. Make as many as you like. Your buddies can sit on them too. Next ALT cam to a destination in the same sim and hit your Teleport Target icon on the HUD to zip you an all your buddies to your camera position. More gadgets may be added to take advantage of this feature. For now I hope you enjoy CamTP.
- Poofer config params fixed.
AVpack - Release : 45
Ooooops! A small annoyance crawled into the last release which I hope is fixed now. I left some debug code in the poofer script to detect if a message was received. This caused it to repeat back what a user said. Cheers to my betas for pointing that out.
- AVpack now has a real simple graphical HUD that you can wear. It is nothing fancy just yet, simply a means to launch the main menu. A few people asked for the HUD because they wear skirts and found it hard to click on the actual AVpack to control it. But enough about those guys.. :P. I hope to improve the HUD and make it more functional. It will not replace the AVpack completely as there are just some things you can not do with HUDs compared to attachments right now. Anyway I hope this will make things easier for you to access the AVpack menu.
E-what?!!! E-mubbles. Short for “Emotion Bubbles”. Now you can tell AVpack to display texture UUID’s or AVpack inventory textures right over your head.
- Simply type
Some more script code work to compensate for the high volume of “stuff” now in the AVpack. This new method should allow for more stuff to be added without the worry of script runtime errors or lists failing.
- Now has built in camera controls. Sit on it and touch the back of the chair for camera menu. You now have a cool follow cam or head cam. You can also altitude warp to plus or minus your height relative to ground height.
Fashion designers now have quick access to a green screen. Simply type
/pbto rez one. Ideal to take picture of your avatar to cut in Photoshop.
Coffee & Emubble
Quick and simple way to promote AVpack now. A few people asked me for pictures of AVpack to use in their profile to advertise it to buddies. Now its even easier. Type
/coffeeand tell your buddies to click on either of those object. They will be taken to the AVpack website which will provide them with all the info they need.
- The Skiff was in the very first AVpack we had. Somewhere along the line it was lost, but someone requested it back. Its a flying troop carrier. Love it or hate it but its back. If people like it I will try improve it. :P
This patch was kind of rushed. Apologies for that folks. Any weird stuff let me know.
AVpack - Release : 41
Major changes in the way the modules communicate with each other. Unfortunately this means that they will not work with older station modules from previous AVpacks. I had left a copy of the old Builder Pack inside the AVpack for die hards, but this will be phased out and replaced with support for the default one going forward.
- The modules are now phantom on rez. This will let you fly about them while up in the air. no more getting stuck inside them. They turn non phantom when they dock.
Builder Pack - Forcefields and Sliding Doors
Module doors get the first look at group access. Now you can choose if you want Private, Group or Public to access through your forcefields. You can also choose which way to deal with intruders. You can Send Home, Eject or Push away an unwanted guest. To only allow your friends in, add their names to the Access note card inside the forcefields contents then tick the Private option on the menu. Group access allows members of your group to lock and unlock forcefields also.
Group access means anyone with the same active group as the forcefield can pass through. Public allows anyone through. You can also lock or unlock the forcefields so they act like doors. They will turn solid when locked.
Sliding doors are also group activated. You and your group buddies can lock or unlock the sliding doors.
Builder Pack - Colour Coded Docking
The access tubes are in a test stage for the new colour coded docking system. This should make it easer for people to build. Modules also now provide a helpful hint as to what docking port number they wish to connect to. Look out for the green flashing beacons on some modules. These allow you to access their main menu.
Builder Pack - Hangars
Hangars also now have a forcefield type barrier. This is a work in progress feature and will in future be able to inform you and let you deal with enemy ships trying to dock at your station. Due to my time constraints at the moment it only deals with avatars.
Builder Pack - Quarters - Viewer
- Fixed a small bug in the Quarters comms viewer.
- Added a bubble feature to the AVpack. People can now type [ /bubble textureuuid ] and the AVpack will use the AFK bubble area to display any texture you give it. This can be a UUID from your inventory or name of a texture in AVpack contents. You can even use poofer textures already built into the AVpack as examples here. Try this /bubble woot
- Added two new weapons to AVpack. Zone Push & Gravity Wave.
- Zone push (when active) will repeatedly fling any avatar that comes within 10m of you into the air. This works on push land only. Warning do not leave this on while in a crowded public area. Toggle with /z
- Gravity Wave is kind of like a reverse orbit. Only is sucks people to the ground really strong making them “River Dance!”. To arm this type #g & then choose your victim to end it type
Works on push land only.
Non Physical Seat
Requested by many, so here it is, our first v1 Non Physical Seat. This seat replaces the old crappy chair we had. To rez one simply type the old command
/chair or now
/seat . Use your arrow keys to travel.
Spanner has had a few upgrades. You can now plant trees or land mines using the PLANT option. Also have fun with the SkyBall trapper that will send avatars into the clouds inside a semi transparent orb.
Trees are a pain to deal with usually, trying to find them in your inventory is one thing, but this new method might save you some time. Land owners can drop seeds that will instantly grow where they land using the new PLANT function of the spanner. You can choose any number of the default tree seeds for your land. Simply select the type of tree and then drop the seeds using your mouse-look fire. They will always seek the ground, even when dropped from the sky. Note though that this feature will only work for land owners.
Re-shuffled a bunch of code around to try help with the growing stuff inside the AVpack. Script enhancements now include, better rezzing, faster list parsing, quicker AVpack loading.
Hope you enjoy the new features folks and I will keep adding stuff. Sorry about the delays but I have been talking a lot with customers over the past month and making sure they were all up to speed and also dealing with a heck of a lot of ideas feedback. As always please use this blog for your ideas.
