HUD7 Beta.14 Leash Ring Leashing

HUD7-beta2Hi everyone,

This has taken a bit longer than expected to put all the little pieces together, but the results are looking good.

I’m happty to release Beta.14, which brings Leashing to the Collar’s Leash Ring.

Convertible Leash Ring

What works:

  • You can wear it, drop it, rez it inworld, and it will leash the Collar automatically.
  • Choke options for drag-choke and pull-choke.
    • drag-choke is when subbie can’t keep up with a walking Owner (is she afk?)
    • pull-choke is when subbie is pulling against the chain herself.
  • Relink any leash to any of the five Collar rings.
  • Up to five active leashes, each one restricting movement.
  • Gravity for chains. Just like the Collar has gravity, the leash chain will sag or tighten when the sub moves closer or further, or when you lengthen or shorten the leash.
  • Quick lengthening/shortening of chains via menu.
  • Emotes, so that subbie knows what you are doing!
  • Sounds.
  • Help pages, tips, hints.
  • Persistence through relog, restarts.

Other Leash Ring function like force-TP will be in future updates.

 What else is new with main HUD beta.14

  • Stability improvements
  • Faster restarts. About 11 secs most times.
  • Even fewer scripts (actually starting from beta.13, but didn’t mention it then)
  • Bugfixes

How to get your beta.14 and uHUD

To get both HUD7 beta.14 and the uHUD, just go to the Secret Warehouse, say the password (“ponygirl”) and click the blue HUD7 Beta Board right above the Update Switch.

Sorry, you can’t get the uHUD from the HUD menu yet.

Enjoy! ♥ Lulu

Update your Firestorm now

Lulu-at-deskIf you’ve been having problems in Firestorm rezzing Cuffs (they don’t stick around), or things detaching automatically after TP, then you should update your Firestorm to the latest 4.7.3. They’ve fixed the rezzing issues.

The Firestorm update link is here.

Thanks to Vanny Richez for the heads up and for testing that rezzing works great now.

Enjoy!

HUD7 Beta.13 uHUD is here for everyone

HUD7-beta2Hi everyone,

Beta.13 brings the uHUD (i.e. Utility HUD) to everyone, not just those who have the Collar.

If you have Collar, Cuffs or Gag, I’d encourage you to take the HUD7 beta for a spin – it’s got over 100 individual little (and big) improvements over HUD6. If nothing else, it’s a lot lighter in scripts due to the Quantum Engine.

It now takes 30-60 secs to activate everything, depending on how fast you are (no more individual setups, transfers and such!)

About the uHUD

Why is there a separate uHUD?

Firstly, so that it is optional. Not everyone wants an AO, RLV features (forcesit, attach, strip, lock attachments/clothes etc.), pose, rez furniture, etc. etc. You can save some script-count by not wearing this uHUD.

And even if you use the features, you can optionally remove just the uHUD if you need to when some sims complain you have too many scripts, while keeping your main HUD and LULU Gear on. The main HUD and gear are designed to be script-light enough for sim script counters.

Secondly, the uHUD is moddable, and you can drop your own anims, landmarks and scripts into it (you can add buttons to the menu!) to extend its features.  The uHUD is essentially a sandboxed area.

This is in contrast to the main HUD – being no-mod allows the LULU gear to be the most secure system out there. There’s simply no way for the sub to hack prims or scripts after deactivating RLV, etc.

What’s new with uHUD 2.0-beta.1

  • improved RLV Relay, courtesy of Chloe Constantine and thinkKink
  • improved RLV menus, courtesy of Nagi Michinaga
  • RLV Relay, lock-attachment, lock-clothing, lock-edits, lock-rez, lock-inventory, lock-shared-folder  now all remember their settings after restart.
  • improved uHUD lock – now works in conjunction with HUD’s own ‘lock HUDs’ (which locks the uHUD independently from any other uHUD lock). All the locks must be released for the uHUD to be detachable.

GET THE UHUD from the BETA VENDOR (Secret Warehouse). 

What else is new with main HUD beta.13

  • Prettier menus: can you see what’s new?
  • Fixed: some people being asked to set up RLV folders even after setup, under some specific folder situations.

For the Collar:

  • Fixed: random going into Pet-Crawl when you log on, even when you were standing when you logged out (Thanks Vanny! Issue #115)
  • Your Pet-Crawl will now persist through restarts or crashes.

For the Cuffs:

  • Fixed: Modifying thigh chains to and from tight should issue or release RLV restrictions (essentially No-TP etc.). (Thanks Idris! Issue #111)

For Gags:

  • Fixed: Gag Label persists through HUD restart.

HUD7 Beta.12 Rez into Pet-Crawl

HUD7-beta2Hi everyone,

Time for the next update…

welcome to Beta.12!

What’s new with beta.12

  • Rez into Pet-Crawl: Now when you rez your LULU Collar, you wll drop nicely into Pet-Crawl. (Or, you could turn it off in settings.)
  • Rez/Derez Settings: choose Drop-rez, Starburst, Derez anims options, plus Rez-to-PetCrawl.
  • Smaller memory: Beta.12 has fewer scripts with even more code being squeezed into the Quantum Engine.
  • Improved stability: internal rewirings so things run smoother

Note: If you have changed Collar color to White Leather base in beta.11, you’ll need to do it again in beta.12. Sorry!

Cuffs got some love too!

  • Lockguard & Lockmeister: now works with third parties’ toys,  not just your own or your Owner’s toys. For those public places. (Issue #99 Thanks Gaea Morpork).
  • Fixed Cuff chains missing when worn from inventory (or after TP). (Issue #84, thanks Vanny Richez).
  • [EDIT] Fixed PetCrawl turns on after TP (Issue #92, thanks Gaea Morpork… who’s been quietly climbing the Bug Catcher Leaderboard!)

And Gags even!

  • Color for Labels: Easily change label colors to suit your surroundings or to match your Gag, Collar or Cuffs. (Suggestion #91 by Gaea Morpork)

And keys

  • Key now auto-detaches after use: Owners need to take a new Key Box to get new keys. Old keys will no longer work with this version. Feel free to delete them. (Issue #84, Thanks Idris Georgia!)
  • New Key Box sent out. To make things easier, every time the sub upgrades to a new HUD with a new Key Box or key version, the new Key Box is automatically sent out to all Owners.

How to get your beta.12

If you have an earlier HUD7 just wear it and you will get the option to update.

If you have HUD 6, just go to the Secret Warehouse, say the password (“ponygirl”) and click the blue HUD7 Beta Board right above the Update Switch.

Do not wear your old (i.e. current, existing) HUD or uHUD together with HUD7. Bad things will happen if you do!

Report any bugs!

With each release, a chance to find new bugs!

And get listed on the Bug Catcher Leaderboard

Plus the fuzzy feeling knowing you’ve made your LULU a little better!

HUD7 beta.11 Collar now partially available

HUD7-beta2Hi everyone,

Beta.11 brings you most of the features of the Collar, squeezed into the tiny memory profile of the new Quantum Engine.

What’s working now

The following buttons are now working on the Collar Menu:

  • Pet Crawl: you can go around on all fours, with four types of crawls. Your Owner can also ‘lock’ you in Pet Crawl so you can’t get up.
  • Pet Expressions: Most gestures will work: wriggle, whine, beg, bob etc. Hug might be a bit wonky.
  • Bell: You can also adjust Bell Pitch (5 sounds, from a low cow-bell sound to a high kitty-bell sound) and volume. You can click the Bell to jiggle it (No cheating, you have to be near enough though!).
  • Tag: there’s a new Tag button on the Collar Menu for your convenience. But it’s more fun to actually click the physical Tag inworld and seeing it flip up. Again, you need to be close enough.
  • Gravity: Bell and Tag will magically drop correctly through various crawls and anims.
  • Deed: your Ownership Deed is fully working.
  • styling: you can re-size, color and position your Collar.

For those still waiting on the fence, this Collar addition should be enough to get you to try HUD7, as the Cuffs and Gag are fully working already.

What’s coming

Other features like rez/de-rez options (starburst, drop-rez), emotes, and error messages will be added soon. You will not be required to activate a new HUD as these will be rolled out live and you will get a message when you log in.

Other features like Leashing and Utility HUD will be added in the next major releases (beta.12,  beta.13 or beta.14).

The following are beta.11’s  improvements over HUD6:

Smoother Pet Crawl Transition

Pet-Crawl has  been improved. The transition from one crawl to another is now smoother. Also when standing up from a crawl. Yes, it’s subtle.

Improved Gravity

Gravity is a special Collar feature where  the Bell and Pet Tag hang down towards the ground whether you’re on all fours, or whether you’re standing.

The all-new Gravity Engine results in smoother and quicker Bell and Tag transitions, especially with slower or crowded sims. They hang down perfectly with each movement for that sexy look on all fours!

And remember, you can always wear your Collar slanted. Bell and Tag will adjust themselves automatically.

wear-it-slanted

Smaller Memory Footprint

Beta.11 uses even fewer scripts than beta.10, while doing more. This is possible due to the incredible Quantum Engine.

How to get your beta.11

If you have an earlier HUD7 just wear it and you will get the option to update.

If you have HUD 6, just go to the Secret Warehouse, say the password (“ponygirl”) and click the blue HUD7 Beta Board right above the Update Switch.

Do not wear your old (i.e. current, existing) HUD or uHUD together with HUD7. Bad things will happen if you do!
