Bots Playground updates

Second Life bots programming in JavascriptThis is a repost of a recent DevPortal post. It turned out that lot of SmartBots developers missed that post, so I decided to repeat it here once more.

The Bots Playground has been updated with the following improvements:

  • Scripts now restart automatically
    This is the most important update which relaunches your scripts if Playground server gets restarted.
  • Page controls got refined for 1378×768 screen resolution
    This is the most popular resolution for compact laptops, so we refined page controls: script rename/remove links has been changes; long script names are properly displayed now.
  • Scripts list is now sorted by name
  • Reference links to Playground Commands and Events have been added.

Finally, two new commands are available:

We welcome all developers to try Playgrounds and discuss it in DevPortal forum!

Waypoints just got even better!

Waypoints for second life bots updatedWe’ve just updated a Waypoints Navigator module (this is the module which allows writing a simple step-by-step walk-and-talk instructions for your bots).

The changes affect mostly Waypoints editor interface:

  • the way points are now compact (it is easier to manage bots with hundreds of steps)
  • editor properly warns you when you have unsaved changes
  • inventory browser works better (to choose an animation or sound)
  • finally, the pause option has been added (you can pause your waypoints execition at any time).
