Hello!

Just recently moved from firestorm to Cool Viewer and very happy. As well as two of my online friends that have been given a new (second) life with their weaker computers.

One feature request on the part of one of my friends (avid cross sim-shopper ) would be "Show Only Friends" where all other avatars in view are de-rendered and only friends are visible.

Thank you Henri

Zee

I will not implement this in the code: too specific, and would (slightly) slow down things at rendering time, i.e. it would only add code bloat for a feature almost nobody would use.

But you may perfectly implement it yourself with a few lines of Lua, thanks to the Cool VL Viewer Lua scripting feature (I implemented Lua scripting in the Cool VL Viewer exactly for this kind of purpose). Look for the IsAgentFriend() and DerenderObject() functions as well as the OnAvatarRezzing() callback...

Hi Henri, thanks for the reply. I will definitely look into this though i have no knowledge of the Lua language or how it is used. i imagine an if statement is involved and perhaps a while statement. Keep you posted.

:)

Something like this?

function OnlyRenderFriends (id, name, text)

OnAvatarRezzing(id)
if (IsAgentFriend(id)) then
DerenderObject (id, false)
else
DerenderObject (id, true)
end
end

Upon further examination, the task is too daunting. I will advise my friend to use her firestorm when shopping.
