Touring Balloon

Hot Air Baloon Engine:

//Hot Air Touring Balloon
//by Hank Ramos
 
//=========
//Overview
//=========
//The Hot air balloon consists of a large number of scripts, working together.  The balloon will not function properly without all of the scripts.  The scripts are broken up by function, mainly for convenience but also because of the limitations of the LSL scripting memory.
 
//============================
//Scripts and their Function
//============================
//Hot Air Balloon: 
//The main script and "engine" of the entire balloon.  All major functions are done here
 
//Automated Tour: 
//Handles automatic tours given by a pre-set Tour notecard.  The script reads and follows the directions given in the script, and sends commands to the Hot Air Balloon script.
 
//Destination Script: 
//Handles the file i/o of the tour notecards.  It converts the notecard information to a list of destinations for the Automated Tour script to handle.
 
//Finder Script:
//Handles notification of the owner of the balloon in case the balloon is lost.
 
//ILS Navigation: 
//Handles reception of communications from ILS beacons. The owner manually activates the ILS beacon, which then communicates docking or nav info to this script.
 
//Landmark Script: 
//Handles drag-and-dropped landmarks. Reads the landmark information, then passes it along to the Hot Air Balloon Script  
 
//Region Script:
//Used to be a separate script along with another script that read world coordinates of various sims from a notecard.  Very slow, and required updating.
//Now, this script simply provides world coordinates from the llRequestSimulatorData function.  
 
//Settings Script:
//Reads from the settings notecard and informs various scripts of their default settings.
 
//Voice Control:
//Provides centralized listen event to distribute voice commands to all of the scripts in the balloon.
 
//Air Bag Script (found in the invisible air bags and the bain air bag at the top):
//This script receives buoyancy values from the Hot Air Balloon script, and help make the balloon float and sink
 
//Display Script (found in the overhead display prim, invisible prim but visible text):
//Handles the display and timed request of information from the Hot Air Balloon Script.  When not receiving text to display, it automatically triggers the Hot Air Balloon script to send distance, destination, and altitude info back to this script.
 
//MasterFlameScript
//Receives Flame 911 info, and controls all other flames and sound.
 
//FlameScript
//Works in conjunction with the MasterFlameScript to show coordinated flames.
 
//==================================
//Constants Used with Link Messages
//==================================
//100   : Request Region World Coordinates
//102   : >>>Deprecated<<<
//110   : Request Landmark Information for a particular Tour Stop #.  
//200   : Receive Region World Coordinates sent by the 100 command
//203   : >>>Deprecated<<<
//210   : Send Landmark Information to the Hot Air Balloon.
//211   : Send number of destinations in the loaded tour to the Automated Tour Script.
//237   : Broadcast current TravelForce, ArriveForce, DefaultZ settings from Settings Script.
//238   : Broadcast current Upforce, DownForce, Precision settings from Settings Script.
//240   : Send "API" command to all script.  Same as a voice command.
//411   : Text to display on the overhead display
//412   : Broadcast current Display Rate setting from Settings Script.
//482   : Broadcast current ChatChannel setting from Settings Script.
//487   : Send tour notecard name to the Destination Script.  Triggers automatic loading of that card as well.
//501   : Air Bag Buoyancy Information.
//555   : Send the current "Distance to Destination" to the Automated Tour script
//850   : Instructs Hot Air Balloon to send "Destination Name" info to the overhead display.
//851   : Instructs Hot Air Balloon to send "Distance to Destination" info to the overhead display.
//852   : Instructs Hot Air Balloon to send "Altitude" info to the overhead display.
//911   : Flame control
//999   : Broadcast reset to all scripts
//2658  : Manual Mode.  Informs the Automated Tour that we are currently in manual mode, and not following a tour notecard.
//95562 : Voice Command string broadcast by Voice Control Script. Each script processes their own particular commands.

 If you have issues with:

ve found that large mass vehicles pose a problem as llApplyImpulse uses energy faster than most megaprims, even those of smaller dimensions such as <11,11,.5>, can replenish. I've had success changing the following code.

Change the push function in the ATB Engine from: 

push(vector direction, float speed) 
{
    vector ivel = llGetVel();
    vector fvel = direction * speed;
    vector imp = (mass * (fvel - ivel))/10; 
 
    llApplyImpulse(imp, FALSE);
}

to:

push(vector direction, float speed) 
{
    vector ivel = llGetVel();
    vector fvel = direction * speed;
    vector imp = (mass * (fvel - ivel))/10; 
 
    llSetForce(imp, FALSE);
}

#5 = Docking Z.  The docking altitude.
#6 = Travel Z.  The altitude used to travel to the destination.
#7 = Waypoint.  0=False, Any other value is TRUE.  If TRUE the the next landmark is automatically set when you are within 10 meters of the landmark.
#8= TimeToStay.  0=Disabled, Any other value waits at that position for the specified number of seconds and then selects next landmark.

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.
