Available parcel entries

The available parcel entries to update:

The parcel name
The parcel description
The parcel music URL
Set to "on" to set land for sale, "off" to stop selling
The selling price
The person UUID allowed to purchase this parcel
Set to "on" to allow selling objects with the parcels ("off" to disallow)
The UUID of the picture to be set as a parcel image
The parcel landing point, format: "X/Y/Z"
The landing restrictions on the parcel, one of:
Direct - land anywhere
LandingPoint - teleport to landing point only
None - teleport is blocked


Your bot has to own the parcel, or have some of the permissions:

  • Parcel identity > "Change parcel name, description, and 'Moderate Content' setting"
  • Parcel settings > "Change music & media settings"
  • Parcel Management > "Set land for sale info"

IMPORTANT: SL requires you to re-log avatar when you change the parcel group abilities. Thus, relog bot after changing them.

Checking parcel update results

SL does not notify bot if parcel update was successful.

Thus, to ensure the results, bot

  1. updates the parcel,
  2. then re-reads the parcel details from SL and compares them with expected values.

If your bot lacks any permissions (for example, "Set landing point and set teleport routing"), then expected parcel data won't match the actual parcel details. And you get an error from API.

Return values
