Hey there,

as a Live Artist in SL it would be cool to have a Radar feature to sort all avas after the time that they have entered the (extended) chat range. I actually haven't found it yet but it may already be implemented - is it?

Sunny greetings
Don

This is an extremely niche feature... And no, it is not hard-coded into the viewer.

You could, however, use Lua scripting to implement it yourself. See the radar related callbacks, and specifically the OnRadar() one: associated with some minimal code to store the new incoming avatars together with a GetFrameTimeSeconds() time stamp in a Lua table, you could set up a Lua side bar button or chat trigger to display that table entries in the proper order (with either a "poor man" method by printing the names in chat, or with a luxury interface using a custom Lua floater with a sorted list)...

mmhh.. what a pity.

I heard about that feature from people (mainly djs who use firstorm and who use it to say Hi to the new arrivers). The feature to get the info into the chat window is already installed in Coolviewer (I clicked it on in the main settings and it works) but as I'm singing and playing piano live I can't have a look at the chat window all the time, so that doesn't help.

I'll have a look into lua, but that would also only be a weak workaround as far as I can oversee it so far.

May I ask - as the info about the new entries is already implemented in the cool viewer, too - if you may want to consider creating a column in the radar window to use this given informations? That would be ofcourse awesome.

Whatever you decide, thank you very much for your help and very fast reply and.. for maintaining that really great viewer!

Nope, sorry. My viewer is fast, because I always refused to add bloat to it. Exotic features will be omitted; I implemented Lua scripting for the very purpose of avoiding to implement such features in C++ code and slow down the viewer (or bloat its memory usage) as a result.

Oki dokes. No problem. I clearly understand that

Hello there.
Unfortunately I have to come back to that request as I'm just not good enough at Lua-Scripting. Is there any chance that somebody could and would do that script for me and could also implement a column in that list that contains the worn tags of all avatars? The last one is needed as I have to make heavy use of the auto-derender script that I've found here.

Many thanks in advance for your help!
Frank
