Danny's Group Changer HUD V3



Danny’s Group Changer HUD V3

(Images may vary from the Live Version.)

The HUD will attempt to change your active group to match those assigned via the menu options described below.

It relies on an RLV Enabled Viewer with RLV active.

Its actions are throttled by SL so can take several seconds to switch active groups. SL imposes a 60 second period between automatic group changes so you will see a delay when hopping between parcels..

Add the HUD it to see it appear - if you got it from me, Danny, It'll probably appear top left..

Right click the HUD to Edit the position. There's a resizer Button under the option Appearence if one of the 3 default sizes suit you.


You want a group automatically selected when you enter a region / sim?

Enter the region, select your active group, touch the HUD, select Set Region.

You want a group automatically selected when you enter a parcel?

Enter the parcel, select your active group, touch the HUD, select Set Parcel.

You'd like a default group set for when you're out and about?

Set the active group (or none), touch the HUD, select Set default.

You want to back up all your settings?

Your settings are all saved in the 'cloud' so you don't need to back them up.

If you have a notecard - must be called 'groupchanger' (all lower case) - from a previous version you can import that. After an import, however, your default group will be 'none'.

SL menus can be temperamental when left to time out and may take a few retries to resurrect. Also, button presses and active group changes may not be picked up by the HUD if it's touched too soon after the change or menu display because of a small delay added by SL.

Differences from the previous version:

All settings are now stored in the 'cloud' effectively removing the limit for the number you wish to store. I set an arbitrary and, I think, ridiculously high limit of 500 just in case there's a deliberate attempt to flood the server. If you need more let me know. But I will roll my eyes.

What data is stored?

I save your Avatar UUID, your SL user name, the Groups you want to switch to automatically, Group names, Group UUIDS, Region names and Parcel UUIDS.

Absolutely no tracking data, time related data or personal information not mentioned above is stored. Guaranteed.
