Duct Tape & Cutter

Supported TouchBound functions


Duct tape & Cutter are a variant on the normal TouchBound locking mechanic. The main feature is that the locking can be “strengthened” with multiple layers of tape. Each additional layer will have to be cut to unlock the taped object.

  • If you rez your Duct Tape or Cutter in a public place, other players can use it like any other TouchBound accessory for locking things.
  • If you wear the Duct Tape or Cutter on your avatar, it will only be useable by yourself. (This is useful if you like to wear your tools on a belt for example)

Public use

By default, when accessories are used as a HUD object or worn on the avatar as an accessory, only the wearer can use them. But there is a special configuration notecard inside the accessory objects that can be renamed to change this behavior:

  • PUBLIC=NO : Standard behavior, when worn on the avatar, only the owner can use it.
  • PUBLIC=YES: Anyone in close range can use it.

In all cases, if the padlock/key is rezzed on the ground (not worn) anyone in close range can use it regardless of the public setting.

Click modes

  • Clicking the tape roll/cutter once will switch it to “activated mode”, indicating that it is waiting for the target object to be clicked.
  • Clicking it again will leave the “wait mode” and display a basic information popup.
  • Click and hold the tape roll/cutter for more than 3 seconds to “lock” the activated mode for 30 minutes.

Activated mode is represented by a glow, and an “activated” hover text when the object is used as a hud element (HUD elements cannot glow)

Locked activation

When an accessory is locked in activated mode, you can click multiple objects in sequence without having to click the accessory again between each use. This mode can be disabled by clicking the accessory a second time. It will also deactivate itself if attached/rezzed or after 30 minutes.
