Start of the second week and we're doing well. We've still got lots of tasks and games we can do, but we're ahead of where we thought we'd be.
Today we started scripting. We now know how to make a prim look pretty but now we'll look at how to make it d things. We first looked at how to make a prim 'say' something (how to put text on the screen), so we made pet rocks that said "Rock on", "I'm a little rough around the edges" and "I want to be a shiny, spining rock"
We then looked at playing sounds when you click the pet rocks. We were using the sounds already in SL so there were lots of whistle, kiss and 'hey' noises round the room.
We headed to Yadni's freebie yard to get a collection of free sounds as well as the many other free delights at Yadni's. I also set up a Freesounds account the group can use to import creative commons sound clips into SL.
Our last task of the day was to get an object spinning using a rotate script from the Scripting Help wiki. Soon we had multicoloured cubes and glowing flexi-prim blobs spinning around. Josephine and Dan logged on and said hi as we were finishing up, which was cool. They'll be joining us for the last couple of sessions this week.
