Treasure Hunt Radar


Am I getting better at these? πŸ™‚

Today’s release is the Treasure Hunt Radar, meant specifically for finding small things cleverly hidden. Notable features:

  • Will find objects by name, using both partial and complete name matching.
  • Can position your camera so that the object is easy to see and click.
  • Partial name searches are not case sensitive.
  • Sound alerts when objects are found (audible only to the wearer).
  • Can dump the positions of all treasure hunt items found into your chat log as SLURLs for easy sharing.
  • Can give you URLs that can teleport you to the object in one click when used within Second Life.
  • Will keep working on no-script land.

P.S. Meanwhile, I’m thinking of a product that would make treasure hunts more interesting rather than more grinding…

P.P.S. My best rate so far is 51 seconds per hunt item, give or take. πŸ™‚

P.P.P.S. Found a small bug, sorry about that — when the number of items found becomes so big that they no longer fit into hovertext, the radar switches into displaying them one by one with a “Showing 1 of X” message above that, and the X is higher than the real total by one. Since it isn’t actually affecting the functionality in any significant way, I will hold a bit on the update until someone trips over something else or until I get any bright ideas for a feature to add.

  1. What’s “no script land”? Is this resctriction imposed due to reasons similar to “no-nudity” or “no guns” policy?

  2. “no nudity” and “no guns” policies need a human being to enforce them, “no script” is a flag in parcel properties which prevents anyone except authorised users from running scripts on that land. When you move, scripts in your HUD attachments and other things you wear move with you and execute in new locations, and there’s a limited amount of CPU power locations have to execute scripts. Or the owner can just be mean. πŸ™‚ Very annoying when you have scripted boots, since quite a few kinds will keep sounding their heels clicking sound forever, unable to stop it.

    Thankfully, there are some exceptions to “no script” flag, which make scripts keep running when you enter a parcel like that, and this particular HUD uses them.

  3. As a store owner and huntee as well as hunter I’d like to say thanks. I have a similar product that does the same thing but I will probably end up getting yours too.(I love good quality scripted items) As a hunter I am horrible at finding objects and also, I don’t have a lot of free time inworld since I’m working a day job then come in the evening inworld to handle my business stuff.
    Anywho, appreciate your work and will visit your inworld store when I get inworld tonight. πŸ™‚
