I adore scripters! That is no news for people who know me well.
Builders and scripters are what bring life to Second Life. A builder, a good one, can build anything at all, but it is not going to move without a script in it. A builder one time, an excellent one, built a Brahma Bull for me, just like we have here in Costa Rica, The problem was..it just stood there, looking great but could not move. It took finding an expert scripter to take the bull, literally all apart, just to make it possible to raise his head in a few angles, but that alone, with a sound of bellowing brought a little life to an inanimate animal.
For you coding geeks reading this.. here are some of the things “real coders “find crazy about this language:
1. That you can put anything in a list… except another list.
2. Quaternions as a basic type!
3. That lists are immutable, and can be changed only by making a modified copy..
4. All the built-in functions starting with “ll”
But, I am here to say, that it works!!
It makes our world move, like in the real world and sometimes even better:) This is why 8 years ago, I posted my poem and original music made into a video with partner Natascha Randt, that honors, that crazy-overnight-invented language that makes SL function. It is a tribute to Linden Scripting Language and the avatars who speak, write and create in it. It is a tribute to my scripting partner, Dale Innis, who magically helps my pushing- the -envelope- ideas..to come true and be realized.
I have an expression, “To build is sublime…but to animate is Divine” Make it Move!…because you can!
