OpenSim developer Dahlia Trimble has won a bounty for her work on fixing llLookAt, a function useful in making objects move better.
“Fred Beckhusen has tested the code and is happy with the result,” said Talla Adams in an announcement today. Adams, who is the moderator of the OpenSim Virtual community, spearheaded the crowdfunding effort in January.
The following people pledged to the project:
- Talla Adam, Kitely Grid: $200
- Shin Ingen, Ingen Lab Grid: $200
- Fred Beckhusen, Outworldz Grid: $500
- Selby Evans, Virtualoutworlding blog: $500
- Geir Nøklebye, Xmir Grid: $50
- Butch Arnold, 3rd Rock Grid: $100
- Michael Sietz, Digital Worlds Group LLC: $350
- Alex Ferraris, AviWorlds Grid: $100
The funders will meet tomorrow to discuss the disbursement process.
“Dahlia Trimble has fixed llLookAt,” said Beckhusen in a post yesterday. “It works beautifully and is very low-lag with a modified sensorless script she gave me to test with.”
To test the new functionality, Beckhusen wrote a script for a hummingbird, Fleta, that follows an avatar around, as in the video below.
Check out her author page on Amazon or follow her on Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn. Her first virtual world novella, Krim Times, made the Amazon best-seller list in its category. Her second novella, The Lost King of Krim, is out now.
