Mini Tutorial: How to make a very simple telepad system.

Here is a short tutorial about making an easy to use multi destination telepad system.

I’m not the creator of these scripts, so I do not take credit for that. The dialog control script is written by Nargus Asturias, I don’t know who made the telepad script.

Lets begin.

Step 1.
Build a simple cylinder with the following settings: (See pic)

Size:
X = 1.0 meter
Y = 1.0 meter
Z = 0.25 meter

Taper:
X = 0.15
Y = 0.15

Set the prim to Phantom.

Step 2.
Download the zip file, and unzip it somewhere on your PC.

Step 3.
Create 2 new scripts in the telepad, name them ‘Dialog Control 1.8′ and ‘Telepad System 2.0′

Copy the content from the Dialog control 1.8 text file into the Dialog control script in the prim. Do the same with the other script. Save both scripts.

 

Step 4.
Give your telepad system a  cool name.
Take it into your inventory.

Done with the building part!

How to operate the system.
Simply rez one teleporter, and give it a name in the Description field of the prim.

Now go to the next destination, rez another telepad, and give it another name in the Description field of the prim, something like ‘Shop1′ or something.

Now touch the telepad and a menu pops up. Hit the reset button, so all telepads see each other.

More options are in the scripts.

Take a copy of the PipeMaker in your inventory. Leave one PipeMaker prim rezzed in-world.

Right click on the Pipemaker you left rezzed in-world and open the content tab.
Find the copy in your inventory and drag it in the rezzed prim.

[TIP: Delete the pipemaker after this step.]

Step 5.
Take the PipeMaker (with the copy in it) into your inventory to save it.

Done!

How to use the Automatic PipeMaker:
Just rezz it (on a place where you can build and are allowed to run scripts), and a blue menu pops up.

Click on some buttons and see what they do :-)

Have fun!
