// Builders' Buddy 1.0 (Base Prim)

//
// This script is distributed with permission that it may be used in
// any way, or may be further modified/included in resale items.
// HOWEVER, if this script is used as part of a for-sale product,
// it is required that appropriate credit be given to Newfie for
// the script (or portions used in derivatives).  That's a fair price
// in exchange for unlimited use of this script, dontcha think?
 
//INSTRUCTIONS
//(These instructions use channel 1234 in the examples, but can be
//  changed further down in the code to whatever channel you wish.)
//
// This is the *Base Prim* half of the Builders' Buddy system.  Drop
// it into the prim that will be the container/box that will be used
// to store the building once completed.  Drop the *Component* scripts
// into each 'piece' of the building.
//
// QUICK USE:
// - Drop this script in the Base.
// - Drop the "Component" Script in each building part.
// - Type: /12345 RECORD
// - Take all building parts into inventory
// - Drag building parts from inventory into Base Prim
// - Type /12345 BUILD
//
// OTHER COMMANDS
// - To reposition, move/rotate Base Prim Type: /12345 MOVE
// - To lock into position (removes scripts) Type: /12345 DONE
// - To delete building pieces: /12345 CLEAN

Flash Scratch to SL - Your Scripting Tool

Script ImageNeed to write a LSL script and don't know how to script?  I know I hate trying to get my head around LSLS when I an in a time crunch. So why not give Flash Scratch a try! Its a great tool for learning and scoding your own scripts for Second Life without having to pay someone to do it and without a crash course in LSL

A Huge thanks to John Bennet of ATLAS Institute at University of Colorado and Eric Rosenbaum at MIT for writing Scratch for SL to begin with.
