Manual & Resources

  1. Rez the Greeter;
  2. Edit the configuration notecard in the content of the Greeter (read well the included instructions and set the configuration parameters as you prefer);
  3. Save the notecard and wait until the end of the initialization. Done!

If you want the Greeter to give a landmark and/or a notecard to your guests, simply drop it/them into the device!

If you set a too long message to greet your guests, the script might cap it.
To write a longer text, you can add to the configuration notecard the following string:

#WELCOME_MESSAGE2 = NONE

Then replace NONE with the second part of your message. Nobody will notice it 😉

The script can’t use a square bounding box sensor, so the Greeter may interfere with the other floors of the building.
To restrict the Greeter to a floor, you can make it flat and stretch it so that it covers the area you want to scan, then set #SENSOR_RANGE = 0.
Finally, make the Greeter invisible by using the “Edit” tools of your viewer.
The avatars that walk on the device will be greeted.
