I’ve talked to a lot of people about decor and their homes in Second LIfe and in at least half of the cases they haven’t known about a small change you can make to your about land settings for your home that makes your furniture use more immersive. I’ve also noticed it when I have visited public sims and Artem and I have sat down on a piece of furniture. He scrolls through the menu and I am sat there constantly saying yes to drop down menus asking to attach props to me. It’s even harder when the drop down actually appear under the menu for the item in the first place so sometimes you don’t even spot the attach request until you get up.
There is an ‘experience’ in Second Life, called the Avsitter Experience by Code Violet that takes all that away if the decor is made with the avsitter scripts (which the vast majority do use). It’s actually easier to show you what I mean if you don’t know already so Artem and I made this short video.
I was prompted to make the video after being prompted by the sofa to add the experience. It reminded me to make sure I had it set and it really does make a huge difference. This sofa is by Loft & Aria (and new at Uber) and they always have a number of props and items included in their items (my favourite is a cocktail drink in a piece of summer furniture…well it’s always after 5pm somewhere right!)
Anyways, I hope this was interesting and helps you get the most out of your furniture and decor items around your home. See all the credits below for the items used in the photo and video.
