More information about the LSL materials functions.

Also, the server-side syntax table has arrived. This will make it a little easier to use new features in the built-in script editor, especially with third-party viewers that are a little behind on the implementation of new functions, constants, etc.

(Personally, I use an external editor 95% of the time, and only use the built-in editor for very quick hack scripts)

More detail on the upcoming LSL support for materials.

There are no surprises in the implementation, which is via new get/set primitive params data PRIM_SPECULAR, PRIM_NORMAL and PRIM_ALPHA.

Materials system and projection lighting in LSL?

Some great news from +Nalates Urriah which indicates we may see the materials system and light projection features finally being incorporated into LSL.

And it's good to know that LL recognise that llGetSunDirection() could, ah, use a little work. And perhaps a fix for double-click teleporting within a region that has a landing point? But I digress ...

The Handy's Tools website is down at the moment, while I wait patiently for +UKHost4u to look at my support ticket ...

Apologies for the inconvenience. There seems to be some SNAFU over billing which I hope will be resolved shortly.

We've moved!

Handys' Tools has moved into a new store. It's in the same region as before (Sheerstone), but in a new, dedicated parcel. Among various benefit this will bring is a large increase in the space and prims for expansion.

(The building was specially made by Handy with a nod to Art Deco architecture, simply because Handy loves Art Deco.)

Why not come and pay us a visit? Pick up a free prim scrubber while you're here!

Now at Makersmart

Handy's Tools is now proud to be part of Makersmart, +JubJub Forder's excellent resource that brings together the top creators of mesh, sculpts, textures and more.

If you're a content creator in Second Life, and you've not seen Makersmart (previously the Sculpts-Only Mall), I urge you to visit the place. Whenever I'm starting a new building project, it's my first stop for sculpts, etc.
