Last weekend I had some free time and decided to build a simple low lag region.

After a couple of hours stacking prims, I came up with this:


Uberflux full region view
Uberflux full region view

Since I’m all about sharing stuff, I quickly saved an oar to share it.
Took some snapshots, and opened this blog…but amygosh, website down.

I uploaded the oar to Mega.co, and shared the link on the Metropolis Google+ group. I got some nice reactions there! Thanks for that.

Fast forward to the present.

I have updated the region a bit, added some rocks, added a full perm vendor with some useful stuff in it.
Re saved the oar and you can download it here:

Here is some useful info about the region:

Mini Tutorial: How to create a NPC (Non Playing Character)

[Update 04-07-2013: I have added a NPC kill script to the download. To delete all the NPC’s on a region, drop the NPCkill.lsl script in a prim and touch it.]
[Update 10-07-2013: Replaced the NPC puppeteer script with an updated version. Some bug fixing things.]

Hi @ all!

Cool thing you might wanna know: I have a guitar museum on Metro, and I have Jimmy Page walking around there and do stuff!

Like this on your favorite social media thing! Make it trending and stuff.!!

Another cool fact is that you can have a celeb walking, dancing, talking, etc, etc on your region as well! (like this too on your preferred social media! This won’t work on Tell-sell channels though!)
And it’s really easy!

Just a couple of scripts, an avatar that you can copy, a notecard and a prim to control the NPC.
That’s it!
No huds, no resetting scripts after a region restart, no fuzz. Just create a copy of the avatar you are using, tell it what to do, and forget about it!
