Fun on a Prim
Ever hang around with friends and can't decide what to do?

Rez a prim (any will do, but a four or five meter cube works great (and sit on it. Have your friends sit on it too. Then right click and choose Edit. Select the Object tab and in the Position section select a z height around 500 meters. As soon as you do and click out of the box, BAM! you will be hanging in the air at your chosen height.

But not for long!

Check the box that reads Physical. Nothing will happen until you close edit. Then the prim will begin to fall-- slowly at first, but accelerating until you reach terminal vecloc-ty-- which is pretty fast.

It's never the fall that kills you; it's the sudden stop.

Fortunately, there's no sudden stop in Second Life. Instead, you bounce. And bounce. And roll. When you hit the ground you'll be all over the place.

It's a riot. Fun on a prim. Try it!

I don't know why nobody has replied to this! I tried it today with a friend. OMG! great fun!

oh - you might have to experiment a little with different heights to get the perfect bounce, but you should get across a sim or 2

Do it - go on, you know you want to:)

Thank you for a great giggle,Chey.
