-!dM Evil LibraryShelves-
some truely evil furniture!
Our evil furniture was inspired by the need to have some less obvious cage than you would usually find – and perfectly blend into the surrounding. So the Evil LibraryShelves were born, and offer you versatile use either as photoprop, as furniture piece, or as part of your roleplay environment. As always, with high detailed textures!
The set contains photography props and poses with the following properties:
4 POSES (no mod/no transfer):
• (* tied-in-closet (spreadEagle)
• (* tied-in-closet (armsBehind)
• (* tied-in-closet (armsCentered)
• (* tied-in-closet (sit)
All POSES are static, allow head movement and come with ‘copy’ rights so you can put them into your posestands or make own poseball arrangements.
PROPS (detailed info to each after listing):
• !dM – Evil LibraryShelves (no modify/no transfer)
• !dM – Evil LibraryCage (no modify/no transfer)
• (*chanimations – !dM Evil LibraryShelf multiPoseball (no modify/no transfer)
DETAILED INFORMATION (please read!)
The Evil LibraryShelves come as an unlinked group of ‘LibraryShelves’ and ‘LibraryCage’ in a total of 24 PRIMS (12 for each part) and shows as one combined object in your inventory. The sliding door part rezzes by default in ‘closed’ state.
Make sure you have both components selected in edit mode when you intent to move them together as a group! You do this by keeping [Shift] key pressed, then right-click choose ‘edit’ on the shelves, and (with still pressed shift key) click on the cage part. When both are highlighted with the blue/yellow lines, you can let go of [shift] and everything moves as a group now. – in worst case, re-rezz from inventory to go back to the original (closed) alignment.
ACCESS and SECRECY
The LibraryShelves’ secret door opens on touch of the books and front facing – but to decide who may and may not access, it allows you to set permissions – by clicking the lower end of the key which lies on the shelves, you receive a menu allowing you to chose owner, group, or public use. Rezzing default of permission is ‘owner only’. – Use of the pose engine is NOT effected by this selection.
The key-menu as well allows you to pick a solid wood backside of the shelves, or a transparent ‘glass’ appearance to see through them inside.
All scripts run in MONO.
Once the secret door and bars are opened, sit on the closet itself. On first sit a menu pops up allowing you to pick which pose you’d like. By clicking the closet when sitting you will receive the menu to change between the poses. And you’ll be surprised… the chains will change with your position to match up with your suspension.
ADJUSTMENT OF POSES:
When you sit, speak /1a in open channel for the adjustment menu (it will only work when sitting on it). ‘Postion’ will allow you to move your avatar more forward, backwards, left or right (X and Y) and of course up and down (Z), if needed ‘Rotation’ menu gives you more options.
The script remembers the avartar custom settings of up to 100 most frequent users who adjusted their positions as long as the LibraryShelves rezzed and the scripts are not reset. Unfortunately it cannot keep the positions when picked up back to inventory and will rez back on default settings – but since the adjustment is easy and quick, this shouldn’t be a problem!
There is tons of particle chains out there, but we decided against them for a better result when using it as a photoprop – This does unfortunately also include that with the amount of avatars out there there will be no 100%-fits-all solution – if you want to be exact for fotography purposes, you might need to adjust your shape slightly and make for example your arms, legs or torso a bit longer/shorter if you can’t get it right through the pose adjustment alone. The prims themselves cannot be moded as their size and location is stored in the animation frames. PLEASE TEST in our mainstore if you are uncertain if everything works fine with your avatar measures.
And since I know it’s easy to forget:
Keep the /1a command in mind to adjust your avatar position!
Extreme lag can influence the performance of the prim animation, so if you change pose but the chains don’t follow, select the pose again through the menu.
To make it easier on photographers who work with models, a multiPoseball is included. This way you can freely move your model yourself instead of ‘instructing them’ where to place their avartar. (The model will have to use the poseengine of the shelves though to trigger the animation of the chains.)
The multiPoseball responds to /1 show and /1 hide and allows to toggle the poses by using the pageUp/pageDown keys.
The shelves includes an update script which will check for free upgrades when it is rezzed – to not loose the information of your adjusted poses through resetting/rezzing, you can call for the update manually by typing “/12update” (without quotes) in open chat.
And as with everything scripted: Make sure you are in a sim that allows for scripts to run!
That’s all you need to know – have fun and emerse in the roleplay!
Special thanks go to Nikodemus and Druuna for inspirations and scripting support!
The textures for this set (except skull) are custom made for (*chanimations and deviousMind – if you find them used by anybody else not connected to us, please inform us! Thank you in advance!
BAD SCULPTIE RENDERING?
If you have problems with sculpties seeming rough edged and not properly rezzing – go to Advanced Menu (if it doesn’t show on the top bar, press CTRL-ALT-SHIFT-D to show it), Debug Setting… – type ‘RenderVolumeLODFactor’ (without quotes) and set it to 4.000. It will take a short moment and your sculpties will render smoother when looking at them from a distance! Search the Wiki if you want more info about the RenderVolumeLODFactor.
